12:05 am
nuclear waste and what are we i mean is the mean. source for the most people drink from this water and it has been. incidents reported recently that people have iran has cut electricity supply in recent weeks claiming that the iraqi government has not been able to be for that electricity and that is another reason actually why people have directed their against iran so so that copped it which has been the warning which is backed by iran i think we have seen i mean to the sort of anger that is actually expressed by iraqi against those people. turkey has warned that it cannot take in any more syrian refugees if government and russian forces push ahead with the planned offensive in italy president expressed fears of a bloodbath as he met the leaders of iran and russia to discuss the fate of the

12:07 am
region much of the to her own summit was spent talking about the future of it lip the syrian city and province were armed groups and opposition rebels are preparing to make their last stand against syrian government forces and russian warplanes. for the underwriters of the syrian conflict it blue is a clearly a point of divergence iran and russia see it in national security terms the syrian government needs to regain control of the city to combat what it calls terrorism as well as asserting national integrity turkey already home to three and a half million syrian refugees. in humanitarian terms president recha paper to one said the majority of men women and children there are not fighters and have suffered enough and the turks can't cope with millions more fling adlib iran's president acknowledged that the vast majority of people in ad lib are civilians. so c.n.n. . is sensed it because terrorists use civilian people as human shields they hide themselves among people to continue their shameful lives we should try to separate
12:08 am
terrorists from people fight terrorists and protect civilians in this area but if iran's leader held the middle ground russian president vladimir putin whose military involvement turned the war on us as favor has a different view if armed groups are willing to use civilians as human shields he said what happens next is their fault. those are good looks that terrorists do the same thing everywhere all the time they use human shields the russian military always tries to spare civilian lives soon after the dinner on summit ended the united nations peace envoy for syria warned the security council that any battle for ad lib would be horrific and the time has come to evacuate the city throughout the day leaders in tehran discussed a future syria free from terrorists with new buildings a new constitution and even elections while leaders in new york were left to weigh the potentially disastrous consequences of what seems like the inevitable battle for it. while our diplomatic efforts and james bases more on that u.n.
12:09 am
security council meeting from the u.n. headquarters in new york. i think many diplomats believe it's not now a case of if there is an offensive in need live but when despite that though stefan de mistura the u.n. special envoy has come up with a new plan to stop the bloodshed he first said he'd like to give the security council the plan in a private session but then and thus the nikki haley the u.s. ambassador who's the current this month president of the security council said no we want to hear your plan in public and this is what he said ideally all militant fighters should be asked with a deadline to move their own military presence beit is a way to beat away from populated think the village is at the same time and here comes the message and image i've got from the population
12:10 am
i meet your campaign indicating that this is what they've been after from door that i'm going to move out of they may how those they may fit the crimean don't people can be mobilized on that. so one of the lever's for this plan is that people power guessing the civilians are needless to say to the fighters you need to move out of the built up areas out of the villages and towns and cities the other lever he says is the turkish government putting pressure on those fighters but i think there is a big question here if you are a fighter or a commander of one of those fighting groups who's been fighting now in this war for more than seventy years why would you now leave areas built up areas among civilians where you may feel more safe and instead go into the countryside when you know that the syrian government and the russians have aircraft ready to bomb you
12:11 am
well there have been demonstrations across syria against the planned offensive in the lead thousands of people took to the streets after friday prayers calling for a halt to any military operation many have been preparing shelters and stockpiling food all in half of its lives population already displaced people who've fled other parts of the country. was that one of the protests in. what other developing that they were going to do about that at about what dozens of demonstrations in the proppants of it live and the country thought of him and aleppo have taken place condemning the russian intervention and moscow threats to launch a military operation adlib the demonstrate its called for the armed opposition factions to unite to repel any possible attack by the regime forces and their allies on italy and at the demonstrators carried bennett's condemning the u.n. envoy to mr with statements about it live and the thought of the international
12:12 am
community about the threats of the regime forthwith and its allies to launch a military operation on the reagan. eight aid agencies have made a collective plea to world powers to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe in italy save the children says it's working with other organizations to prepare for the worst case in our. it makes sense for us first aid organizations to come together to be calling for what we consider will be i mean joe boyd a humanitarian catastrophe and it lead because we asked aid agencies always extremely stretched out we're talking about rebuilding people and laid. out for them over half of them have already been displaced from other parts of syria living in the area. in syria which has the highest the highest human to thailand needs and it is going to face in the final is going on and make things worse so we are preparing on the ground for potential escalation
12:13 am
but i think the thing to stress right now is the fact that supplies are already then when we talk about food medication we're talking about also displaced people. who are already overcrowded conditions who are living in shelter in rural areas that in times of hospitals the world health organization is saying that while national trust the tools are not functioning in egypt right now and. we can imagine that this opens it will make things even worse their own supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei says he wants iran and russia to work together to restrain the united states russian president vladimir putin met separately with many of the holding bilateral talks with iran's president hassan rouhani in toronto according to local media and many said the two should cooperate to restrain america going to
12:14 am
have a danger to humanity. carry out this news of the stabbing of a far right presidential candidate through his brazil's election deeper into chaos but. this is not normal. these are extraordinary times and they're dangerous times for us. president barack obama takes aim at the man who replaced him in american to get out of votes in the midterm elections go spoke about move away from the sea didn't stop the wells. fighting the way. the u.s. president's former campaign foreign policy adviser has been given a fourteen day jail sentence for lying to federal agents george papadopoulos pleaded guilty last year to lying to investigators about his contacts with the russians during the two thousand and sixteen presidential campaign he was being
12:15 am
questioned as part of special counsel robert miller's probe into possible russian interference let's go straight to particle he joins us live from outside the court to tell us more about the outcome of this sentencing. well absolutely perfect timing because it just started to pour rain here but really what's important is to go figure out what happened inside that courtroom just moments ago the hearing lasted well over an hour hearing from george papadopoulos where he expressed his basically grief saying that he made a horrible mistake and that he is in fact sorry so what happened is george papadopoulos is in many ways the key reason why the f.b.i. even started looking into whether or not there was russian interference in the twenty six to election potential collusion of that interference with the trunk campaign so how did he do that while he was on president trump's national security advisory committee very young but he said he had expertise in basically gas drilling and foreign policy so he was on this committee and he apparently was
12:16 am
approached by russians and so try and encourage directions to meet with them and apparently some of those russian connections told him that the russians had dirt on hillary clinton so a few weeks later he's in a london bar talking to an australian diplomat and he starts drinking and he starts telling the investor the diplomat exactly what he thinks the russians have dirt on hillary clinton well later after those emails were released the diplomat goes and tells the f.b.i. that starts the investigation so why is george about topless in trouble well because the f.b.i. came to him and said at seven days after the inauguration tell us what happened in the light and he admits that he lied so six months later they get the evidence they go to him and they say you're lying and this final cooperate up plead guilty to this one count of lying to the f.b.i. and then they said he was pretty much a super grudge you witness didn't give them a whole lot of information now fourteen days may seem like a fairly light sentence for a felony but the same time the judge pointed out that in sixty percent of these cases on these counts people don't serve any jail time at all and he pointed out to
12:17 am
be thinks his life is pretty fairly well unbearable to live with one of the phrases the judge uses to basically sum up your top it off of this is life down and how does this fit in to the broader russian inquiry. indeed for the president himself. but i think it's how it fits in is this is another person close to the trunk campaign who's pled guilty and now will be punished for it he will spend fourteen days in jail he will spend a year on probation who have families ten thousand dollars in fines to service this sends a message that this probe is legitimate for pleading guilty and that they are serving time for him and he is just one of several very close people to president trump who is now face this predicament so every time president turn comes out i'm sure he'll do it again very soon and say this is a witch hunt it's a hoax there was no collusion people can look at this and say well wait a minute people who are very close to are going to spend time in prison because of
12:18 am
this thing that you call a witch hunt so it just builds on the evidence that perhaps the mother probe is in fact legitimate our party when they are the thanks very much and a public i reporter from washington d.c. . former us president barack obama has strongly criticized his successor donald trump on the republican policy in a rare political speech also urged people to get out of voting november's midterm congressional elections which could have a major impact on trump's presidency a white house correspondent can be how could a small accusing current president donald trump of capitalizing on resentment former u.s. president barack obama delivered a blistering attack on trump's time in the white house this is not normal so these are extraordinary times and they're dangerous times obama is back on the campaign trail advocating for democrats in advance of a november vote that will determine control of the u.s. congress and offer what he believes is
12:19 am
a much needed check on his successor the politics of division and resentment and paranoia is unfortunately found a home in the republican party. obama's fiery speech took aim at some of trump's most controversial moments as president looting his response to white nationalist protests in charlottesville when trump blamed both sides for the trouble we're supposed to stand up to discrimination and was sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to nazi sympathizers. how hard can that be saying that nazis are bad obama's attack comes as trump is also campaigning for republicans in north dakota trump responded i'm sorry i watched it but i fell asleep. he shot back at obama who said the economic recovery started under his presidency if the democrats got in with their
12:20 am
agenda in november of almost two years ago and said of having four point two i believe honestly you'd have four point two down and you'd be negative you'd be in negative numbers thank you illinois. still obama's speech is a stinging rebuke of a sitting president with a distinctly different vision of democracy kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington. the son of a brazilian presidential candidate stub during a rally says he's unlikely to return to campaigning before the first round all october the seventh adult to say that jeb olsen is in a serious but stable condition the far right candidate is popular in opinion polls despite racist and homophobic comments on that in america to continue and has this report. i'd just when it seemed brazil's presidential election campaign couldn't get more unpredictable the controversial leading candidate was stabbed in the
12:21 am
stomach during a street rally. or two conservative evangelicals i.e. the device of law and order candidate sent this message from hospital to the womb is men can so evil of never home to anyone. but many brazilians disagree also nat'l is facing a supreme court trial charged with making inflammatory anti gay and t. black and massaging the statements which promote hatred and condone rape. all of bulls are not as rivals strongly condemn the attack against the former army captain even former president rousseff whom he once said deserved to have been tortured during brazil's military dictatorship. is now whoever did this has to pay whoever did it or. equally controversial would be leading candidate lula da silva continues to fight for his right to campaign from his prison cell where he's
12:22 am
serving a twelve year sentence for corruption still brazil's most popular politician he's been barred from running but is appealing the court decision but given the likelihood he'll lose he's expected to cede his candidacy to his vice presidential choice that nanda had before wednesday the deadline for registering the former south paolo mer from the left wing workers' party is also now being accused of receiving in direct payments to his two thousand and twelve campaign he did nies any wrongdoing. what does a prosecution happiness hands the word of a band-aid like eight times to the courts. regardless opinion polls show the head that is unlikely to inherit lula's popularity. also not as divisive and pro-gun stance also frequently resilience. all of which means that the thirteen candidate race is still wide open unless there is states that attack actually gives both
12:23 am
a model the edge he needs to win in a first round next month to see in human al-jazeera oh let's take this on we can speak to polish the terror who's director of the brazil institute at the woodrow wilson center joins us now from washington d.c. mr sitter welcome to the program what's your sense do you think the stabbing will assist him in his bid to become president. it could and it could have the precise opposite impact if busy of the side student if i in this precisely what they don't want brazil has traditionally has a much food mild mannered kind of politics violence has been absent in brazilian national politics for almost a century it's not the country's style and this is british shocking so one way to reject this would be to reject both because that is sort of his message the
12:24 am
other day the other way i could be that he can capitalize on this and move to a second round of vote i it's not very easy for him to win in a first round we have still a month to go he has no television time to do propaganda he would have to rely on his t.v. appearances all of his the he will do that from a hospital bed or former house because he is under medical orders not to go out. exert himself too much but i think his chances of being in the second round is. our rio and for this reason the right is impossibly polarized yeah. this election is in such chaos what's led to this.
12:25 am
yeah what led to this is two years of the deepest recession deepest. highest unemployment in brazil ling the lingering impact of that is to their. street crimes all time high you have all the obviously allegations of corruption still lingering there and the country is fed up brazilians are frustrated and. angry with their political leaders of all parties from the right to the left that is what benefits mostly desirable so not a who was a low productivity congressman for a quarter century and an expert in using insults to gain spacing media etc he has i think in twenty five years in congress he has one
12:26 am
bill to his name but he is efficient in the use of this mystic visceral type of attacks on that verse areas on situations but it's possible it is possible that he could emerge as a very important candidate into a second round ok probably just as he started something else when i was one very quick question just before we wrap up it if he was to win what effect would that have on the country as a whole do you think especially given those who support due to the silva who is not allowed to run of course in this election. well the country would remain polarized he has economic platform he says he doesn't know anything about the economy but he has a economic advisor that is a pure liberal former professor an expert thing in finances
12:27 am
who would open the brazilian economy who would have a special alliance with the united states and get the country in that direction there may be some merit in opening the brazilian economy which is indeed very open very close but in order to do that you have to go through congress in brazil it's a democracy and that is not an obvious exercise brazil brasilia brazil has been forever a very protectionist country there are interests there that would mobilize against that the workers' party may being a very bad situation right now but it has capacity to mobilize and you need unions in the population and. people from the center right also would not easily follow mr bosal model because obviously he is clearly a misogynist he has. praised. or has done and
12:28 am
made statements in support of torture in support of us at one point in chambers in congo or told a coup leader a female goalie i don't rape you because you don't deserve your to this type of politics all right we'll see how it turns out some brazilians will have to leave it there thank you very much indeed great to get your perspective terry appreciate it thanks. mexico's national human rights commission says the number of bodies found in mass graves has reached almost seven hundred since the beginning of last year it follows the discovery of one hundred sixty six bodies in a field in very crude state the state is notorious for the illegal drugs war and cartels smuggling cocaine north to the united states. so to come this news or demonstrate the rebels are a no show at peace talks in geneva but say that could change if three key demands are met. long queues as starbucks opens its first store in its league but it's

patience run out. still on the ground in some other yemeni capital is the who cheat rebel delegation they're demanding the chance to put injured fighters on that plane for treatment in the amman the capital of moscow's but the yemeni government spokesman here told me this not only the injured fighters they're trying to get on that plane let's hear what he said they said yesterday that they want to departure and jets from yemen we have information from our side from there from san are that those are not injuries they are a group of iranian and or a group of hezbollah experts who were. ballastic missiles a program that has been fired to saudi arabia and they are training who theodahad they have been training for the for the last three days years it's been described by the united nations as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world more than ten thousand people have died two thousand or so have been children every day these

one of the top issues on their agenda america has faced a political backlash over her response to the mediterranean refugee crisis germany has welcomed more than a million refugees since the height of the migration crisis in two thousand and fifty. the presidents of serbia and kosovo have called off a face to face meeting to discuss a controversial land swap under the deal the press of a valley in southern serbia where the population is made mostly ethnic albanian would join kosovo in return serbia would take control of the majority serb area of kosovo north of the river so negate the reports now from press of a close to the serbian cross border. it's the first week back at school for these young students at the eba him kelmendi primary school in the town of pressure it's the largest one of its kind in serbia all the peoples are albanian as they settle in the school itself prepares for what could be the last time it teaches the serbian curriculum and what they hope will be
12:37 am
a fresh start for the school senior. in the twenty minutes there's hardly been any investment here since ninety sixty five everything's in poor condition and we have no problem being in textbooks. the possibility of a land swap between serbia and kosovo has been uppermost in people's minds here pressured us population is ninety percent ethnic albanian the u.s. and the european union had always discouraged the idea until now and apparently straightforward solution. on the surface but has the potential to reopen old wounds in this part of the balkans which has already suffered brutal conflict following the breakdown of yugoslavia. one of the plans that people here fear is being discussed is moving the border to this railway track now while but what put the town of pressure on firmly within the borders of kosovo it would mean that these
12:38 am
outlying villages would still be in serbia and thousands of other albanians still stuck there moreover there is still uncertainty as to what serbia would want to return but would likely dominated northern kossovo which it views is non-negotiable yes we would like to think of course the we have to be very careful in order for asians in terms of you know for republic of course. a lot of sacrifice has been done by all the organs including the organs of. we don't want to interfere in this process this also poses another dilemma for the region's leaders if borders are to be redrawn on the basis of ethnicity it could provoke more calls for land swaps from macedonia which has more than half a million albanians living along its front is even the goal of eventual e.u. x. session football can countries cannot lay these fears disclose we don't find
12:39 am
discussion about and between kosovo and serbia conducive to reaching the goal we think it will reopen too many old wounds in the population areas and that is why we are very skeptical. it is a huge gamble with the risk of reigniting ethnic conflict here a political process that will take a good normal amount of delicate negotiation from all parties involved sunday valuable al-jazeera pressure. now there is an american billionaire credited with pushing the boundaries of innovation but its recent behavior has left some wondering if it's going to fall the stock price of his company tesla took a direct hit alpha musk was filmed smoking marijuana during an interview it's the latest in a series of all quit moments and castro explains host stores whether a media stunt gone bad or an ill made decision probably can't because stockholders right. i mean it's legal right so they go ok the video of billionaire entrepreneur
12:40 am
musk smoking marijuana during a live interview thursday has translated to a financial hit on his company the stock value of electric car manufacturer tesla tumbled nine percent friday morning continuing a downward trend fueled by a string of corporate resignations and its founders erratic behavior i'm going to text messages for for a manager and saying what the hell are you doing smoking weed musk in early august announced with a controversial tweet he was considering taking tesla private only to take back the idea weeks later before that he had bizarrely interjected himself into the rescue effort of twelve tibe boys trapped in a flooded cave when his offer to build a mini submarine was refused must turn his angsty toward a british rescue diver accusing him without giving evidence of being

12:42 am
well it's a story of stories and joining us now to take it apart is pretty campbell is a global motor industry crossed one of the financial times here in london peter it is extraordinary what's going on at tesla it's just chaos and it's what it certainly appears to be in the two executive departures we've had today the head of accounting and the head of h.r. and the head of communications who was also her last day today these come after a wave of departures of senior people in the company has those lost in excess of two dozen people in the space of the last two years now as a business is always had a very very high turnover of people partly just because it's a mosque is very difficult very demanding to work for but we've seen the pace of those ramp up certainly in the last few months as pressure on the company has increased and this is part of the corporate culture that has made this kind of ease them out will force them out or is it the increasing the odd behavior of the sea so
12:43 am
