event. this is al jazeera. launched hasn't seeker this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes yemen's hooty rebels say the un has agreed to help move the critically injured abroad for treatment. at least a dozen killed and thousands displaced in the philippines as the year's strongest storm batters the northern coast. celebrations in ethiopia as the government peace moves allows leaders of a banned opposition party to return home. three to
one. and a super cool mission nasa launches a satellite to track the loss of ice around the world. alone we begin this news hour in yemen where the hooty rebels say the united nations has agreed to help get injured people out of the war ravaged country they say a memorandum of understanding was signed at talks with u.n. officials in amman but the saudi led coalition fighting there in yemen has not commented on the agreement last week talks meant to take place between the yemeni government and who the rebels in geneva collapsed before they even began andrew symonds has been monitoring the conflict from just across the red sea in djibouti. this announcement comes from the who three rebels and it could amount to a potential breakthrough following on from the failure to get the delegation from
the who it is to geneva more than a week ago they've been in the money capital muscat meeting un officials including martin griffiths the un special envoy now what they're saying and they've published a picture of lease ground they signing a document which they who things say amounts to a memorandum of understanding they say the hoot is that they have gotten agreement to transport a number of injured people to amman over a period of six months for treatment for serious injuries on the battlefield the syrian government says it's intercepted israeli missiles fired at damascus airport state t.v. at this video apparently showing air defenses at work israel has neither confirmed nor denied the report but it says it has carried out more than two hundred attacks against iranian targets in syria in the last two years in the philippines at least
twelve people have been killed by this year's most powerful typhoon one hundred we can slightly after it made landfall on the largest island of luzon in the early hours of saturday and left a trail of destruction in the northern province of guyin. dogon is there. food monk arrived just as predicted vicious with its force pounding over most of the north through saw in the early hours saw power and phone lines cut off in the ghetto city in kochi and province. incessant rains and strong winds crippled many of the operations planned by emergency teams. but the destruction here is nothing compared to what we saw when we ventured out of the city. throughout rural communities we saw homes and farmland destroyed access into these remote areas is difficult which means eight may be slow to arrive to. like so
many places here the town of bugout bore the brunt of the typhoon spirit marine commanders say many people here lost their homes. on. property and with crops in the power lines so we expect that the high point to be over soon people here tell us they were aware of the forced evacuation order by the government but following it is easier said than done that is because often their homes and their livelihoods are just in one place and this is all what they've got these are their lives possessions they went through something similar already two years ago a super typhoon hit their community and they've barely recovered julio salah says her small cafeteria was your only means to support your family now it's gone. it really hurts us we don't know where to begin and everything happened so fast and
now my business is gone the destruction is similar all across luzon the largest island in the philippines the majority of typhoon victims are from small farming communities the impact has yet to be fully assessed and the cost counted. the philippine government says efforts to help are well and do we but from past experience filipinos know it's never enough the barely had much speed for the typhoon and now they have you could list. to look at how just zero to go to the a province north to the philippines. or toughen monkhood is now affecting hong kong and is moving inwards to southern china the government has issued its second highest storm alert and activated emergency response measures there heavy rain and major floods have been forecast over the weekend ferry services in guangdong
province have been suspended and on the other side of the world another storm continues to lash the southeastern coast of the united states the u.s. marines the coast guard and volunteers are rescuing scores of people trapped after tropical storm florence slammed into the state of north carolina on friday eleven people are confirmed dead in the state is now bracing for what could be the next stage widespread and potentially catastrophic flooding inland let's go live now to krista salumi who is in fayetteville north carolina for so kristin what is happening there right now. well the storm has the new being this way inland and the mayor here infidel is warning residents that the worst is yet to come as the winds have slowed with more of the rain has just hovered and the storm has moved at a snail's pace pounding local communities with intense rainfall for the last twenty
four hours rescue workers rescue crews here in town have been going door to door throughout the afternoon warning people who live along the cape fear river in one of its tributaries that they have until sunday afternoon to evacuated that's when the river is expected to begin letting its banks but the rain is expected to continue all the way into next week and already we've seen some major highways in the area closed down because of flooding making for a very scary dangerous situation even if the storm will only make its way toward south carolina. florence arrived in the carolinas and like an unwanted guest refused to leave the storm continues to pound both states with a brain swelling rivers you know somebody said the other day it's like being stuck but turtle this thing will not move up the coast to a night you know the way we continue to just get copious amounts running to the rescue of trapped residents continued in new bern north carolina a city that sits on a peninsula between two rivers residents elsewhere are being warned not to get
complacent the risk of catastrophic flooding and mudslides remains remember most storm deaths occur from drowning in fresh water often in cars don't drive. for moving water emergency management is sharing flood projections and local officials. if they tell you to evacuated please do so immediately. it could save your life the national weather service says more than fifty centimeters of rain have fallen in some areas with more to come this is one major source of concern the cape fear river meteorologists predict that it could reach flood levels as soon as sunday morning cresting two days later and the flood waters they could linger for weeks with businesses closed and close to a million people already without power some restless residents ventured outside to get a look i am a little surprised. it's different i always want to.
get there pretty hard for now there's not much they can do but watch and wait. and complacency among the local residents is exactly what state officials are worried about they've been living with warnings of a hurricane for days now and the storm was downgraded and at times like right now the rain has not been so intense so the fear is that people will feel secure and after being in their homes for days sometimes without power now there are some nine hundred thousand people who do not have electricity the temptation may be to wander outside to go for a drive again officials are warning that that's very dangerous we've already seen a lot of great talent is related to the storm and they're worried that that toll could get higher. all right krista salumi lifeless there in fire. affronts dumb to record amount of rain on north and south carolina and gallagher
has more from the city of wilmington in north carolina. over very much in a recovery and respond stands at the moment at least that's what the federal emergency management agency say florence is now being downgraded and because those gusts of wind of died down that means that helicopters can now get off the ground and check for damage and check for any chance of flash flooding because that's the big concern at the moment this storm has broken all records it's brought more rain than ever recorded before and then maybe more rain to come so that talking about the danger of mudslides rivers inland breaching their banks those are the major concerns over the next few days seven thousand six hundred people are currently in shelters there are four thousand national guard on standby to help out but as i said it's a recovery and respond effort at the moment all the authorities warning people not to drive across roads that are covered in fresh water and not to take any chances that they get warnings from local authorities to evacuate certain areas being told
to do that in no uncertain terms close to a million people have now lost power in north and south carolina they may not get that power back for several days if not more than a week but as i said at the moment people are really watching this rainfall will do over the next few days that's where the real danger lies. members of an organization once banned in ethiopia have been given a hero's welcome on their return home the aroma liberation front leader would be upset and fifteen hundred fighters returned to adice out of that after twenty six years in exile is part of the government's peace initiatives mohamed vaal has more . to do in the each open couple of days about in front of the supporters of the almighty gratian from when completed out after years in exile in a body and it to you i don't fifteen hundred fighters accompanied him among the welcoming party or. general secretary because despite his frail condition the fact
that mr doubt and his are fighters that have been. game for the past seven years i am now well. heroes this saves a lot about how my. very sure that all. of them are just ethnic group each opiate but for decades they've been complaining of the looks good marginalization. ration front says it represents the aspirations of the obama people it's militants took up arms against the central government for years they described the former regime as oppressive and demanded self-determination for the oromo the oil f's been banned for years live up to the top of a spoken by the open government in july if you know piers newly elected prime minister
ahmed granted an amnesty to all dissidents if they denounced violence and agree to talks involving government leaders from the ethnic to the political situation remains volatile there were violent confrontations earlier this week provoked by internal rivalries some fear groups that have seen them longstanding status undermined by the political changes are determined to disrupt any form process. other leaders of the liberation front are the latest opposition members to return home week ago the leaders of gin bought seven returned after more than ten years in exile when their party was outlawed the gin bottle along with the o l n and the organ then national liberation front had been on the government's terror list for years but in july parliament voted to remove them and the new prime minister ahmed invited them to come back and take part in the country's politics prime minister has acknowledged ethiopia has no option but to pursue multi-party democracy joe or
mohammed is executive director at or only a media network he says the return of the o.l.f. marks a milestone for the country. historic day need of almost fifty years of struggle and being followed some forty years ago come home. four million people attended today's evil historic day the reason is a little more than the american protest into the last four years have been the primary cause of the jane they voted the. government under the great war and where in the past to transition to basement rose cynical milestone what was learned recently asian reconstruction in transition to democracy is the exact entire very special day you know i think it is the only way forward now with. mr hu shown that there was a. vested interest in transition the country democracy in keeping the country
together this is the most hopeful time this country has ever seen says. there is a lot of excitement i came back here a month ago. have been is in the excitement of things in this country as it is intoxicating and there is negotiation there is no discussion go on all corners and the rows are showing that they need this country they can lead and they can wage this war struggle they can take power and they can control power responsibly they can transition the country to democracy yes almost not only in degree but they were in the unite this country forward. for more on our top story the agreement of yemenis hooty rebels saying they have reached with the u.n. to move the injured abroad more fighting has broken out in the port city of her day there are vital entry point for aid in a country on the brink of famine and sixty people have died since wednesday when government forces backed by the saudi led coalition said they seized two major
supply routes into the city who say they've launched a counter offensive to retake the roads which link her data with the capital sana'a full rounds of un led talks of failed to make a breakthrough to end a three year old civil war the rival sides last met in kuwait in april twenty sixth in but they failed to reach a power sharing agreement after one hundred days of negotiations abraham are qatari is a yemeni political analyst he joins us now from new york thanks very much for being with us so what do you make then of this announcement. you know. not very credible people know that they actually seek in peace and the problem here i don't think that is an agreement between the healthy than the un. that would be a major problem for the un because the whole things are on you one list to be sanctions and to be targeted by the coalition but they should hear i think as more
of those who are playing cards because the forces that led by the united arab emirates are trying to occupy the main seaport of yemen that supply actually eighty percent of the country and supply you know over fifteen million of people with food and medication and commercial and so i think they just trying to play a game here because the saudi led coalition are determined to occupy the seaport but the houthi is trying to right now to play that sort of game to make sure that the coalition don't take over that seaport that they that support and that the u.n. would use that as a pressure to basically stop the whole saudi led coalition from taken over the seaport the problem he's millions of yemenis will be impacted by any movement and see poor because that's the main seaport of yemen right now that supply the whole
almost the entire country with food and commercials and so any real fight there will endanger the lives of the yemenis and will impact them very severely but just to be clear when when when the rebels. in yemen say they've reached this deal with the u.n. to get people out you you don't believe that that will even happen. i don't think any any real thing would happen between these and the un the un would have made an announcement and the coalition and the yemeni government will know about that i feel this is more we have seen time and again that the whole of these fry brocade information and give misleading information they reach an agreement we don't know what kind of agreement they reached they haven't really clearly said anything about i think that's a game trying to push back on trying to make the international community pressure the saudis and the united arab emirates. taken over the seaport which is the main
seaport that supplies the whole thing is themself and i feel like of the saudi led coalition supply line the whole thing is all the struggle and ideas where they control because that's their main access to you know the water that they meant access to goods and supplies that's their main access to the humanitarian aid that comes through that support and so they will be completely and in a blockade by the saudi led coalition and i think they trying to play the game back with these other militia not a legitimate government they have credibility issues they always say something and do something also that is an issue that i think everyone is playing with the lives of yemenis right now so i would be a united arab emirates coalition and they are only interested in occupying the seaports so they can control so they can have full control right now over the yemeni air space the seaports and the land and exactly this is why the whole things are saying right now because they know if they lose that. seaport they will be
severely impacted by the supply line that i actually their lives depend on them so we're now we're in a very serious issue we i have heard from my own sources that the o.c. the have and to national bassett is that. all right we have to leave it there are. joining us there from new york apologies for the cut of communication there plenty more ahead on the news hour fears that one of europe's biggest refugee camps could be shut down if the government fails to improve living conditions plus. i'm kathleen sawyer in la more on the kenyan coast where both made of recycled plastic waste if fading i'll be telling you why it's such a milestone for the people yeah. and later in sport two of the world's best boxes get up close and personal for their title fight ball here with that story.
all is still ahead but first in rwanda the government has released two thousand prisoners among them opposition leader victoire beery who was sentenced to fifteen years behind bars in two thousand and thirteen for terrorism offenses she'd been in detention since two thousand and ten when she ran against me in the presidential election she was charged and convicted with planning to overthrow the government and downplaying the rwandan genocide her supporters say the case was politically motivated eight hundred thousand tutsis around a second largest ethnic group were killed in the one nine hundred ninety four genocide by the hutu majority in the beer said that many who hutus also died protecting tutsis she wanted them remembered on a genocide memorial. i think see if anybody was
supposed to me and. the president who give me disability. to ask him if it is a placebo or. other political prison we stay here. because if you seem to did election of or counted today you see that the ticket election where d. did is in corp that it is e.u. the opening of the political space are refugees stranded in bosnia say they have been beaten strip searched and robbed by croatian police seventeen people interviewed by al jazeera said the abuse was taking place during attempts to pass into croatia bosnia has emerged as a new route to western europe since the e.u. tightened its borders croatia's interior ministry told the use it or it dismisses allegations of police brutality are greece's largest refugee camp is facing closure at the end of the month public health officials described

ago a medical report from the last week that. they need the remove and in the tent city beside the official camp the aid group movement on the ground has built terracing and drainage and provided wife and elektra city but new arrivals are spilling beyond this into the olive groves surgeries can provide them with only a top pole and the rope about twenty thousand asylum applicants have arrived on greek shows this year all of them forced to remain on stage in islands while their applications are processed at the moment your rivals are looking at waiting periods of fourteen months before their first interview because like others here this afghan family has stripped all of trees to cook forced to forage refugees create problems for local farmers one of them shows me his company tree workshop looted and burned his house was stripped of plywood refugees used for shelter he no longer
picks the olives that used to give him half his income and. i come every day and i catch them inside i call the police there is nothing they can do. greece cannot protect us greece is like a vineyard without offense but the refugees don't want this any more than he does allissa job is here because the taliban nearly killed him he just wants to finish his degree in psychology this country don't anything. we don't want hot water we don't want anything we don't want their feet we just want to let us leave if i could lift this camp to be ok you know if i could find the chops i could i could arrange the house ok no problem. living on the trunk of the scorpions yet this is the foreseeable future for ali and eleven thousand refugees on the island. lesbos. the leader of the regional
bloc in south america says he's not ruling out military intervention to overthrow venezuela's president at least one and a half million people have fled the political and economic crisis there and that's led to some venezuelans coming up with novel ways to make use of their failed currency asunder m.p.'s he has more from on the colombia venezuela border. so often it's very difficult to explain just how far and how deep the venezuelan economy following the international monetary fund saying that by the end of the year inflation there could reach a million percent but what does it all mean one example is right here on the border with colombia this is the quest for family and what they have here is real money but this is so worthless that they're literally sowing it. with it they're making bags and wallets that they sell for pieces on the streets of colombia but how much was one of these bills words just five years ago when. it was these
bills five years ago. for weak. people. because they have no value they're actually quite impressively made they sell from three to seven dollars and the crisper family says the program has come to this to make ends meet . still ahead on al-jazeera. a political deadlock in iraq's parliament is broken but some still fear for the future plus. i'm lawrence lee in ten years on to the financial crash the german economy continues to go from strength to strength but what costs to other european countries and in sport defending champions france have only on six davis cup holes here but that's.

al-jazeera is there when a story breaks but it's also good to see what happens next which is on. fire by the forum of the barricade of the seven screens that lead to here the middle east now is what about things people have gone near the area the missing of the national army is just sixteen times one complex and i'll just heard stories about telling it from the people's perspective what they think is happening in there called street. i don't again you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour rebels in yemen say the united nations has

well matheson reports from baghdad. after months of political deadlock since the last election iraq's parliament may be growing into gear m.p.'s have finally elected a new speaker of the house he's mohamad a sunni muslim with strong support from the parliament's. coalition but. we need to unify our efforts some members of parliament can reach political consensus and choose our government capable of facing the serious security and economic challenges ahead other posts are expected to be filled soon including the president who will be kurdish according to political tradition he will ask the leader of the biggest parliamentary bloc to be prime minister and to form a cabinet. there are three main blocks to choose from the pro iran shia coalition headed by former prime minister nouri al maliki and. who's head of the fetter bloc the umbrella body for shia armed fighters the pro-u.s.
bloc of prime minister high that and the iraqi nationalist bloc led by the influential shia cleric knocked out al assad or he won a majority in the may elections but the result wasn't accepted by the rest of the parties there are two countries who are going to be very interested in what happens in iraq it's called iran and the united states it's well known that iraq has a lot of influence in iraq's politics and in its daily life but in recent days there's been a backlash against the level of that influence the u.s. has supported by mr hyde at all about it because he is in his turn pro united states but also because the u.s. sees him as a moderate the can pull together a fractious iraqi government. if however high that all about it loses his power within the iraqi government it may come that the u.s. two loses its influence in iraq. and the government riots recently in basra were directed at politicians including prime minister buddy protesters in the oil
rich south blamed political corruption and negligence for failing to provide jobs as well as the collapse of their water and electricity supplies. the offices of local shia armed groups backed by iran was set on fire. me and iran has been pushing for a consensus to choose the speaker and his two deputies that would guarantee its interests in iraq and the u.s. wants an independent iraqi government and a stable political process away from iran's influence there is an apparent conflict of interests between iran and the u.s. over iraq's political future. iraq's political problems are far from over but the apartment of a house speaker is a step towards a solution rob matheson al-jazeera backed out of the two sons of former egyptian president hosni mubarak have been detained on corruption charges and demand mubarak have been out on bail for the last three years but are now back in prison they're
accused of embezzling more than one hundred million dollars from stock market manipulation and the sale of a bank their father was freed last year after being cleared of killing protesters during the twenty eleven uprising or so hot as easy as a professor at rutgers law school he says arresting allah and gunmen mubarak could be a way for the government to keep them from getting into politics but the timing is not coincidental because in the last year and a half particularly in the run up to the two thousand and eighteen presidential elections. or seen multiple times in public in ways that made them appear very connected to the people and down to earth and at a time when the economy has been struggling and it's a fact in many egyptians from the upper middle class all the way to the poor are because the subsidies are being removed inflation is high wages are stagnant and so many egyptians reminisce in the manned days of the work era from the economic
perspective so when demand i let come out in public and are spotted and it's all over social media this signals to the regime that they may be seeking to get back into the limelight and to political life and if there's one thing that is clear about the failed revolution have two thousand and eleven is that although mark receded and take root in egypt what did happen is that there was a change in the governance structure the old regime that was within the mubarak's inner circle including his sons is out. our germany's economy germany has managed this economy better than most ten years on from the global financial crisis but critics accuse it of being too strong certainly in its financial decision making which they say wrecked the greek economy lawrence lee reports from berlin on how that position is viewed as a decade later. in the corridors of power in berlin there are reasons to be
cheerful ten years ago the german economy was so well insulated that the big crash was never going to cause a crisis so much has changed in other european countries but not here in the first six months of this year alone the german economy run a budget surplus of over fifty billion dollars that's almost three percent of germany's gross domestic product or annual wealth it's the kind of figure that makes other countries either extremely jealous or absolutely furious it was the german government that demanded after the bank started to fall that the european commission impose new rules on countries like greece forcing them to adopt a hugely destructive tax raising powers in return for bailouts and loans a decade on stagnant economy is in huge unemployment levels of what's left the proceeds went to the banks not the people many economists hold germany directly responsible for bankrupting greece it is very anti democratic approach that is
something that gives assurance to general politicians that there are rules and that they can be here too and that things will work out that and i think that kind of comfort is illusion it is defense germany would argue that if other countries have behaved in the right way in the first place then the wouldn't have been a problem most of the political class here bears few regrets about driving policies which proved so controversial no absolutely not i think that was the only way the fact that we are successful in all these countries shows that this was the right way and it's like in the it's like in the private sphere. if you don't half debt you are a free man and if you have debt you have to listen to the persons who gave you the money. the one area which germany has suffered from.
in recent years has been the rise of far right populism born partly from economics in poor areas but also from anger towards chancellor merkel's generous asylum policies for refugees this week though the german government announced it was devoting billions of euros to tackle long term unemployment a certain way of diffusing anger germany is able to make these choices in ways others can only dream about lawrence li al jazeera palin. flooding in east and says dan has displaced more than five thousand people and destroyed sixty five thousand acres of farmland the worst affected area is my father in the state of daraa dozens of villages are covered and many haven't been able to find shelter in zimbabwe a dispute over who's to blame over a cholera epidemic is intensifying and the number of victims are growing twenty five people have died and three thousand have fallen sick in the capital i don't

again volunteers around the world have been picking up rubbish from beaches to mock world cleanup day the biggest polluter is plastic it's estimated more than eight million tons of it ends up in the oceans each year in kenya a unique boat is trying to highlight that katherine sawyer reports from land of on the kenyan coast. after two years of trials aras and incredibly hard work flip floppy takes to the water of the indian ocean for the first time. it's built and highly of recycled plastic waste collected from the shores of the indian ocean by kenyans the project leader says it's the world's plastic revolution pull it is really simple we have to end single use plastic recycling is not enough
we have to put an end to single use consumption. it's first voyage was around islands in line with each other famous football building. flip floppy they expected to see in the coming months making stops in villages along the indian ocean coast those aboard. will be allotting communities about the dangers of plastic waste and what they can do to protect the environment but building this boat is not the end game the team of boat builders see the used experience for the next project we wanted to have a big. off long twenty meters and voyage from around the cape town itself. but for all these challenges thus we decided to up this problem. so we have seen what we want to plan because most of the material or one of deficient. the launch of flip floppy was on the world cleanup day when millions of people globally volunteered to clean their beaches for twenty four hours the united nations says
more than eight million tons of plastic finds its way into the world's oceans every yeah that's the same is dumping garbage truck for every minute lamb was pulled to kenya into the wild mob of using plastic in the way the right perspective you can use plastic but you can recycle it and today we have seen from rubbish to abort. the islanders in lima continue to marvel at the bill this nasty creation and hope the tide of trash sam is far away as asia stops washing up their home soon and everyone plays down part in saving the ocean kathryn's on al-jazeera on the kenyan coast the people in senegal have also been getting involved in the big cleanup and as nicolas hock found out in the capital dhaka beaches there have turned into a dumping ground for some unusual items it is
