considered as a crime that falls within the jurisdiction of the international criminal court now we've also heard from senator u.s. senator dianne feinstein she says via twitter israel must not demolish the palestinian community of qana last month the only reason to destroy this community is to expand they buy israeli settlements and split the west bank in half the potential for peace depends on what happens in holland what so we've heard a lot of international condemnation the european parliament in the last couple of days and now the us senator dianne feinstein using twitter to get her message across the international criminal court is also another avenue that the palestinians could potentially to see if this demolition takes place however the residents of the activists here don't know when the israeli bulldozers will come in so here they wait wondering what their fate might be. now the palestinian president has slammed comments made by jarrett cushion of the u.s. president's son in law and one of his top aides on thursday cushion who was quoted
in the new york times saying palestinian leaders in his words deserved to lose aid after vilifying the u.s. administration the palestinian presidential spokesman said his comments showed ignorance the u.s. government decided to cut off funding to and agency for palestinian refugees u.s. officials say they're in the pre-launch phase of their long awaited middle east peace plan our white house correspondent kelly how could has more on that. despite the string of punitive actions christian or says that insists in fact that this will have no effect on efforts to achieve peace between the israelis and the palestinians in fact he says this will improve chances because what he believes has occurred is that the united states has stripped away what christian are calls quote false realities but a former us ambassador to israel under president george w. bush insists that jared kirshner misunderstands the intricacies of the process
think with comments reveal is a basic ignorance about how to negotiate a complex deal he thinks as he said in the article that this is another real estate venture and maybe this kind of activity works in real estate but it's not going to work here when you have a party that has independent decision making on the part of the palestinians just as the israelis do that party is doesn't see any benefits and only is seeing the pain being inflicted by u.s. policy christian or is defending the u.s. approach saying this is a radical break from the past indeed it is a break from the framework that has existed for decades the oslo accords still insists that peace is achievable even though essentially one side has been shut out of these negotiations before they've even started and that is the palestinians still christian or says that the united states is set to unveil its plan is peace

manhood has slammed the north east coast of the philippines rain strong winds and heavy rain no immediate reports of major damage or casualties so far but more than five million people are at risk thousands fled their homes before the storm's arrival let's get more on both of those weather systems our meteorologist kevin corriveau joins us now here in the house kevin we've got two huge storms on iowa on different sides of the world what's this talk us through what's happening with the that's that's right we have one of course category for one time tropical storm now for florence but if you take a look at this radar a here from weather underground the only difference from when it was a hurricane till now is last night at this time we actually saw a well defined center of circulation but we still saw a lot of precipitation with it and we're still seeing a lot of rain with this system and that is going to be the big problem because notice all the rain on the radar and if we don't really move the system that all
that rain rain is can be falling in the same place i want to take you look at the big picture right now take a look at the radar image this is a storm system moving and the storm is really was moving at a snail's pace and that is the biggest problem with the storm right now one hundred ten mile hundred ten kilometer per hour winds moving at about we didn't put that number in but it's about seventy kilometers right now i want to show you what the path of the storm is going to be very slowly through south carolina and then even weaken into a tropical depression but that really doesn't mean anything this is going to be a substantial flood maker across north carolina south carolina and prosper pull up along the appalachian mountains over the next few days now let's go over and show you how much rain well we can probably see anywhere between another three hundred to five hundred millimeters of rain in this area right here now i want to show you what's happening here across parts of the philippines luzon this storm is right over it right now still a super typhoon in this area let's show you what the current numbers are with the
storm. two hundred sixty kilometers per hour with gusts up to about three hundred and twenty four kilometers per hour right now yet two very fierce storms there kevin so had added they both compare with previous storms in recent years then well in terms of the north carolina storm that one actually not a lot of storms actually hit north carolina but when in terms of the philippines they're really no stranger to storms like this the last storm of this intensity actually was a little bit further to the south across the central part of the philippines and when you talk about storm mechanisms a lot of the action happens to the right hand side or the north part of the storm so on that particular storm the philippines get hit with this one the strength of the storm is actually to the north we're not done yet because that storm is going to be making its way over towards parts of china kevin thanks very much for that now the iraqi city of fallujah is struggling to recover cheney is after the army
defeated eisel fighters people there say reconstruction has been slow and there are unhappy with a compensation scheme offered by the government rob matheson reports from baghdad. for two years the people of fallujah have been struggling to rebuild much of the city was destroyed in twenty sixteen as iraqi forces battled eisel fighters some residents who lived through the devastation say little has changed. electricity and services the so wake in the city as for the compensation there is now our neighborhoods are almost entirely devastated my house is completely destroyed but i haven't received any fair compensation. that compensation is vital for people who've lost jobs businesses and homes they say the money is in gold is fairly distributed. we haven't had fair compensation so far our house was destroyed and the entire neighborhood was leveled to the ground compensation is being granted
only for those who have ties with the corrupt officials those who have no connection or sometimes getting half the compensation they should get volusia in the center of iraq has been a battleground for decades suffering some of the highest casualty numbers in the one nine hundred ninety one gulf war in two thousand and four u.s. forces invaded and fought gunmen from control of the city after the fall of saddam hussein. by spring twenty fourteen large areas had been seized by eisold fighters. two years later fallujah was freed after a long seized by the iraqi army but much of it had been destroyed the local government says it's rebuilding as fast as it can and that's giving some iraqis hope for the future but they're different and i'm against it but when we got back to fallujah after the liberation we saw so much destruction and we estimated at least five years for the total reconstruction of fallujah now we're seeing some sort of efforts to rebuild the reconstruction of fallujah as part of
a bigger building program in iraq which is being managed from here in baghdad at the ministry of construction and housing budgets are tight and it's up to the individual cities to manage them. money to get to the new projects are needed to improve things after i sold and also to fix the huge damage that affected the city as a whole this would require much support from the central government. but getting the proper compensation would help more people pollute just live from day to day rather matheson odyssey back to. the head of the organization of american states is visiting venezuelan migrants who have fled across the border into colombia luis armado is in the border city of kuku tar to look at their conditions and as well as economic crisis has forced more than one and a half million people to flee the country asunder of beauty is live for us from cookie tar so asunder what is what kind of conditions is mr mugger likely to find
among the. well at them while. trying to do here besides analyzing what the situation is with the venezuelan migrant this to the mine a more coordinated response. to what is an unprecedented action. of people something that latin america has never seen before at least it has never seen in such large numbers in such a short amount. and while he was here he also had some very strong language against the government. and the venezuelan government that are for. tension we call engage in war or government. immoral dictatorship he said because he said that even if a long government is uniquely responsible for this situation that is pushing so
many people to leave they need anything moral because of its own willingness to recognize the humanitarian crisis that is going on in venezuela and i suppose it's a reflection of just just how acute the situation is for people and the effect it's having on the region that the oas is getting involved in this to this level now. absolutely this is something that. all the other countries on the receiving and i've been asking the organization of the americans to do it clear exactly most of these countries that are. maintaining a sort of open arms policy they are trying to help these women migrants as much as possible but all of these countries also face challenges of their own take for example colombia which is definitely better off with a billion has huge amounts of poverty high unemployment we have all these problems
that they have to deal with on a daily basis on top of that now put more than one million venezuelans that have arrived here since two thousand and fifteen who are putting a strain on. health service educational services for example and that's why. they're all asking for international aid through to help them deal with the flow as well and there are many that say that colombia needs one point six billion u.s. dollars to just adequately respond to the crisis and that's something they definitely cannot do on their own alexandra thanks for the sundress. live for scene kutai colombian you know venezuela. after thirteen members of an aid organization have been arrested and charged in greece they're accused of smuggling refugees into
europe among them is a syrian swimmer who helped save the lives of eighteen people when their boat sank in the mediterranean sea johnson has more from less boss in greece. the emergency response center international. which operated on the island of lesbos is now closed thirty of its members facing charges in greece including spying and alleged people trafficking if convicted they could face life imprisonment it means refugee rescue is now the only group operating in the aegean sea its crews informed the greek coast guard each time they go out so they're not suspected of acting in secret we understand that our ability to operate is contingent on the fact that they trust us and they recognize that we are the we are very skilled that we are very professional. says it followed exactly the same protocol its founder spoke to us from an undisclosed location as he prepared to turn himself in to authorities.
so. private search and rescue has become politically controversial charities like seek to work with the authorities to bring as many asylum seekers as possible safely onto european shores but european policy is increasingly keen for non european coast guards to keep refugees in the middle east and north africa the european union's twenty sixteen agreement with turkey and italy's bilateral agreement with libya last year have helped cut refugee numbers to europe by ninety percent compared to twenty fifteen among the e.r.c. i members facing charges is twenty three year old sara martini
a syrian refugee who with her sister used a lympics swimmer saved eighteen refugees from a sinking boat in twenty fifteen says that on the dates of several of the alleged offenses she can prove she was in germany where she has been granted asylum and enrolled in college he says the police evidence is scant then warden actually has some of this but he wanted to charge of espionage is biased mainly in the fact that some people of listen on the radio conversations between the creek and your pain coastguards these conversations which you referred to a state secrets all took place an open channels anyone can listen to open channels in fact silence are obliged to tune into channel twelve so they can hear the coast guard so this is no state secret or espionage the shifting politics of asylum in europe have militarized borders and cast suspicion on open hearted humanitarianism distinguishing this from criminal activity is an increasingly frequent challenge jobs are open less al-jazeera lesbos. north and south korea have opened
a joint liaison office in qana song just north of the border it establishes a permanent channel of communication for the two sides and it comes just days before south korean president. will meet a north korean leader kim jong un in pyongyang as well. another step towards corporation and perhaps business officials from north and south korea officially open an office in the border town of north korea. starting from today south and north korea and discuss issues regarding the improvement of history and relations and prosperity of the three interviews for twenty four hours and three hundred sixty five days we will meet face to face and to exchange ideas and solve the difficult problems together. it's a first for the two countries who are technically still at war when the korean war ended sixty five years.
