5:03 am
a three year old civil war the rival sides last met in kuwait in april twenty sixth seen but they failed to reach a power sharing agreement after one hundred days of negotiations or yemeni political analyst ibrahim qatari is skeptical of the agreement. 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 that they reach an agreement we don't know what kind of agreement they reached they haven't really call it 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 from taking over the seaport which is the main seaport that supplies the whole thing is themself and i feel like of the saudi
5:04 am
led coalition cut their supply line the whole things with a struggle a law and areas 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 the syrian government says it's intercepted israeli missiles fired at damascus airport state t.v. aired this video apparently showing air defenses at work israel has neither confirm nor deny the report it does say though that it's 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 manhood weaken slightly after it made landfall on the largest island of luzon in the early hours of saturday has left a trail of destruction in the northern province of called diane which took
5:05 am
a direct hit. as dogon is there. typhoon monk arrived just as predicted vicious with its force pounding over most of northern luzon the early hours saw power and phone lines cut off in the ghetto city in calgary 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.
5:06 am
property and with crops includes the power lines so we expect that 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 there is 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 and. it really hurts us we don't know where to begin 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
5:07 am
communities the impact is yet to be fully assessed and the cost counted the philippine government says efforts to help are well under way but from past experience filipinos know it's never enough they barely had much before the typhoon and now they have even less or from the philippines typhoon manhood has now made its way to hong kong these are live pictures from the territory people from low lying areas have been evacuated forecasters are predicting up to one hundred meters millimeters of rain for sunday hong kong's biggest airline cathay pacific has warned travelers to expect up to four hundred cancellations over the next three days. well let's go live now to sarah clarke who joins us from hong kong so sara how bad could this get caught. the
5:08 am
hong kong observatory has just issued the t ten which is the highest tarkin signal you can get which makes it the most powerful typhoon to hit hong kong this year last year we experienced a t ten it all gets a bit silly at the moment i was about to wrench a rhyme we've got wind gusts of up to one hundred ninety five kilometers per hour they're predicting potential landslides a number of people have already been evacuated have set up shelters the certainly the the weather conditions at the moment deteriorating it's about two hundred forty kilometers away from the city right now and they're expecting by lunch time it'll stay at about one hundred kilometers away from the city and that's when we'll experience the most powerful and severe and terentia right. and hong kong is of course a very densely populated territory i mean how how much of a challenge is it going to be for people there to be able to move to safe places from from these tougher. one of the biggest concerns is all
5:09 am
to see that the low lying areas where they're expecting flooding a flash flooding so that the government here has issued a warning to to prepare for the worst we've had warnings the last few days in preparation for this typhoon as a result that set up shelters and as you mentioned before number of other actions to be taken lightly here will be mostly cancelled flights tonight cathay pacific could be the biggest international airline based here. resuming its flights tomorrow morning at four am to set the conditions we've known about these conditions we've known it's going to deteriorate we know it's going to be probably the most powerful storm to hit the city for a number of days so the government taking all actions pick it's currently activated its emergency response plan. all right mama sarah clarke live for us there in all cost. for more on the impact of typhoon my foot in the philippines we can go back there now to jimmy duggan whose life was in the northern province of.
5:10 am
jimmy lee how how how has the people there people there weathered this typhoon. well you know we are in one of the towns north of gaza and again as we continue our coverage today we are in alkali where hundreds of civilians have been evacuated they remain in sports complex complexes here within the alkali power when this supposed complex now i'm just going to show i'm just going to move back and just to show you this behind me our farmlands basically have now been all submerged in flood waters those are very vacuum waited for the main evacuation centers come from these farmlands and they have yet to see the devastation themselves and although there have been no casualties or serious injuries here this is still a devastation nonetheless because it sets back these people for many years two
5:11 am
years ago they went through a similar type food it also destroyed their crops this is supposed to be harvest season and again another disaster like this one they know that whatever aid is given to them it is still not going to be enough and this impact is not just going to be felt in communities like here or even in the whole region of luzon this devastation economically will be felt across the country that is because this is the food basket of the country and this is something that even the government recognize they recognize that there's. an ongoing rights crisis in the country will get even deeper basically once this is felt once the impact the economic impact of this is fully assess at this point it hasn't been fully as yet because so many areas like this one for example and even further remain cut off. and. obviously this is a huge challenge for authorities then in terms of getting the much needed aid to people and rebuilding after the tremendous devastation there how well equipped are
5:12 am
they to do all that well it's interesting to see that there have been changes in the mindset of filipinos and local government units when it comes to preparing for a thai food if you remember typhoon haiyan in two thousand and thirteen left seven thousand people dead and much of the deaths are blamed not just on the on the strength of the people but also the failure to forcefully evacuated billions from communities from low lying communities we see the difference now when it comes to the efforts of the local government we see that in fact here they're much more vigilant and also the change of mindset of so many filipinos they now under the surge could mean and so we've seen our way with that that they're much more receptive to this however there is still those who refused to be evacuated despite a forced evacuation plan because like we said their homes and their livelihoods are all in just one place these are their lives possessions so there is still like
5:13 am

5:38 am
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 say the used experience for the next project we wanted to have a big a down off long twenty metres and to have a good voyage from around the cape town some of them but for all this challenge us we decided to up this problem time and now so we have seen what we want to plant 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 that way the right perspective you can use plastic but you can recycle it and today we have seen from rubbish to a boil. islanders in lima continue to marvel at the food bill this plastic creation and hope the tide of trash sammis far away as asia stops washing up and down home soon and everyone plays down part in saving the ocean kathryn's on al-jazeera on the kenyan coast. of people in senegal have also been getting involved in the big cleanup nicholas hogg has more from the capital dakar it is a big operation in this small beach in senegal to clean up the shoreline in the snow not just happening here it's happening across the world it started thirty years ago across the atlantic in the united states where a few volunteers started picking up litter on the beach but the litter has
5:40 am
multiplied since we find car batteries being washed ashore tires mattresses syringe is baby diapers and a lot of plastic the sewage from this city of one point five million people is poured into the ocean it's as if a hurricane had hit the coast in this forward hundreds of homes but make no mistake this isn't a tropical storm it's humans using the ocean as a dump site out of sight further into the atlantic and the pacific are large garbage patch three times the size of france. right now is the boat trawling and equipment that will start cleaning up those areas but it's still a long way to go now here back on the beach people are trying to recycle whatever

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
5:43 am
something that gives assurance to general politicians that there are rules and that they can be here too and that things will work out but 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 ballin. all right when we come back on a zero older sport defending champions france have all the answers in the davis cup polls here with that story. the past past boss. travels the road to mexico raising ecological when. creates a good solution for the country's most remote. demonstrated cortines of my deep
