nominee president composition speaking against christine blazin forward and also developments around the times of a proposed senate hearing to hear if ford's on occasions. that's right president trump has tweeted out today saying if this happened thirty six years ago why didn't she reported at the time he's clearly questioning her credibility now a deadline has just passed for an offer by the republicans on the senate judiciary committee these are the people who would oversee these hearings to christine was a full forward saying that they would propose that on wednesday she testified first then cavanagh would testify that no other people would testify this contradicts the way she wanted to do it she wanted an f.b.i. investigation possibly other witnesses and she would like to go second so that she could can't contradict anything that kavanagh has to say in denying the charge that he sexually assaulted her some thirty six years ago we have not heard yet as to
1:06 am
whether she will agree to that but right now the latest proposal is that republicans want her to appear on wednesday kavanaugh would appear just after her we'll see what her response to that is but the the effort here is to avoid a kind of circus and it sets up a he said she said situation much like in one nine hundred ninety one during the clarence thomas hearings when anita hill was heard by the committee and then they essentially want to hadn't voted to approve clarence thomas anyway and mitch mcconnell the leader of the senate the republican leader has already said that cabinet will be the next justice of the u.s. supreme court nevertheless if it gets through the committee then it goes to the full senate and if every democratic senator and two republicans vote against kavanaugh they can actually kill this nomination and they have some suspect republicans who they think might be able to go along with him so how this plays out is really very important over the next few days all right thank you very much john hendren bring us all the latest from washington well earlier i spoke to vail right

director of research and special projects at the american psychological association specializing in the effect of violence against women she spoke about what might have prompted christine forward to make these accusations now. it's really important i understand that it's an incredibly small percentage of individuals who report their salt to anyone and it's even a smaller percentage of individuals who are going reported to some sort of formal entity such as law enforcement and the police even when victims do end up coming forward and disclosing it's often many many years after the fact and it's usually to somebody who's a confidant such as a friend or maybe a therapist there's a lot of reasons why women do not report and a lot of it has to do with this myriad of emotional responses that victims experience after an assault including and not limited to emotions such as fear shock and disbelief sadness anger and unfortunately shame and guilt.

president donald trump has cost doubts on allegations that his superior court nominee brett kavanaugh sexually assaulted fellow pupil christine blazin forty nine hundred eighty two. tanzania is a claim for days of mourning for one hundred thirty one people confirmed dead after a crowded ferry overloaded capsized in lake victoria metres from the shore many more are still missing and the u.k. prime minister to resign may has demanded a new bracks it proposals and respect from a you need as. after they rejected have planned on thursday. when our cavanagh supreme court nomination in the accusations have been made against him at dividing along political lines there is strong support for him at the largest annual gathering of conservative question evangelicals being held in washington the values voters summit is a crucial constituency for donald trump and the republicans as the midterm elections approach jabber tanzim reports. the values voters summit is organized by the family research council and christian evangelical group that says
1:18 am
its goal is to defend family values and religious liberties in practice the group is best known for its attacks on muslims and the gay community the southern poverty law center which monitors right wing groups in the u.s. calls it a hate group by the way it represents an integra part of donald trump space we are now officially end session white christian evangelicals monger put aside their skepticism of donald trump's godliness because he pledged to nominate justices to the supreme court of the united states who would rule in favor of christian fundamentalist belief eighty percent voted for him in the election and loyalty to trump remains high but there is a feeling among christian evangelical leaders but republican members of congress own doing enough to protect supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh from attack he's accused of drunkenly sexually assaulting a young girl when he was seventeen at a party in the early eighty's i thought he might inadvertently kill me christine
1:19 am
blasi forward said cavanagh denies the allegation and here are the values voters summit support for calvin or remain solid if you walked in anywhere and said i have i want to report of a sexual assault yes ma'am. when did this happen thirty six years ago excuse me. thirty six years ago yes do you have a eyewitnesses where there are two witnesses but they both deny it happened. you concerned about the allegations of sexual assault. not that much said he didn't get confirmed i don't know if i'd even come out and vote anymore because the republicans have to stand up for something and that's what the republican leadership fears they're already nervous about low turnout if the trump base believes the president's claims that the republicans will sweep the upcoming midterm elections boyd by his brilliant performance the polls suggest otherwise and now if they lose the favor of reliable voters like the evangelicals it will be
1:20 am
a disaster which is why they're pushing for a swift confirmation vote in a very near future judge kavanaugh will be on the united states supreme court. but the risk for republicans is that if cavanagh is confirmed without seeming to have a fair hearing or investigation into the allegations it will enrage and energize independents and women voters to turn out in force in of ember against them she ever time see al-jazeera washington. in gaza the health ministry saying one protester has been killed and at least forty others injured by israeli fire on the gaza border demonstrations against the israeli blockade have been going on for more than five months now many are demanding their right to return to their homes and land their families were expelled from seventy years ago how forces sent their son earlier. so we're here just a short distance away from the israeli border and the man you can see at the center of that scrum there is yassin where the hamas leader in gaza the second most senior
1:21 am
hamas official in the whole of the organization the match shows you a very interesting thing that there is a real improvement or of hamas which controls the gaza strip on this protest it is the by far the most sizable such process we've seen in several weeks of course are approaching six months of these friday protests here at the gaza border in recent weeks that there have dwindled to some extent this is large and it shows you the kind of political pressure that hamas now finds itself under because on two fronts on one it's been engaging in at least in direct negotiations with israel over a long term cease fire many people here feel with that process is either collapsing or is on the very verge of collapse certainly there's been nothing to show for it so far the other front is with the rival palestinian faction in the occupied west bank which controls the palestinian authority all sorts of rumors going around gaza that after an october the first deadline which has been imposed by the p.a.
1:22 am
on hamas to some progress on reconciliation some sort of concessions from hamas about some kind of unified government with the p.a. that the p.a. is prepared to impose a new financial pressures on the people of gaza so hamas is under pressure that could potentially explain why this protest is bigger than usual and there are still thousands of people had to come here despite the risks we spoke to one young man who'd lost one leg in an earlier protest and then in another protest was shot in the other leg the remaining leg and he's back here again today. and there are hundreds of others if not thousands prepared to do the same thing. well now to syria where protesters have been marching in rebel held calling on the international community to stop president assad cementing is grip on power demanding he be removed from office before a new constitution is drafted algis arizona order a ports from beirut. they chant against bashar assad the syrian president to a survived an eighty year rebellion against his rule the opposition has been all
1:23 am
but defeated all they have left is their voices. oh no constitution no reconstruction until a third leaves power that is their demand it's a message syrians in villages and towns across the rebel controlled province of idlib are standing up to the international community. we are afraid this new constitution would not be any different and it won't be in the favor of the opposition we are concerned because some contras are now moving closer to the regime. program x. there were fears of a major assault against the province today there is a sense of relief following a deal between russia and turkey that will at least for the time being prevent bombing and displacement. russia and iran gave priority to ties with turkey over regaining control of it live turkey had warned a government offensive in the province would be a breaking point in their alliance but it wasn't just that a bloodbath would hurt russia's efforts to convince the international community to
1:24 am
pay for syria's reconstruction and support a political process that the judum ises assad's government but the united nations says there is still potential for a lot of fighting in civilian populated areas turkey and russia didn't say how they plan to implement a demilitarized zone free of so-called radical rebels but yan egeland's humanitarian task force was given some details it seems turkey backed rebels could play a role on the ground while. i understand is that the so-called war on terror is not cordoned off in a country that will be in the future air raids against the listed organizations that would also be fighting between on groups and activists and the so-called terrorists the so-called radicals. there is and will be many civilians in these areas.
1:25 am
three million syrians live in half of them already displaced from cities and towns under state control for them reconciling with a government that has killed so many people is not an option they hope the international community feels the same for now the west has shown resistance to work with us but many fear the political transition away from the syrian leader is no longer a priority for the center for their bankrupt. well now to iraq where some of the most significant archeological discoveries in the city of samarra unesco says that it should be protected as a world heritage site locals are saying it's landmarks are being left to crumble matheson explains. for twelve centuries the spiral minaret of the great mosque has survived storms and wars but perhaps its greatest danger is from neglect and. this is the first time we've seen the spiral minaret since two thousand and three
1:26 am
i'm shocked there's been no attempt to restore there are no rubbish baskets no proper benches for visitors if this was in any other country it would be a piece of art. in two thousand and seven they already badly damaged city of samarra was protected as a world heritage site by the us it was hoped that it would encourage more visitors and business but more than a decade later little has been done and if. so it's a little different to the permits and any other peace in the middle east. history and archaeology call the site but it doesn't get a proper attention. so model lies on both sides of the river tigris north of baghdad it marks the site of a powerful islamic capital the ruled over the past that empire which stretched from tunis here to central asia for a century it's estimated eighty percent of it still lies undiscovered. but the
1:27 am
spiral mineral that has gone through dark times even the nearby park that was built not long ago is also neglected the authorities should be investing in such a historical landmark so that archaeological tourism chemical orosz in samarra city will iraq's in the process of rebuilding its present day cities after decades of violence but for a country which is said to have a wealth of archaeological treasures the people of somalia say that iraq should be protecting its history to rob matheson al jazeera. and all the stories of following a catholic bishop in india has been arrested over allegations he repeatedly raped a nun in a case that has triggered angry protests bishop franco was arrested a day off to pope francis relieved him of his duties over the scandal the non first made the accusations in june that police didn't question him until september. meanwhile india has launched its first national register sex offenders following an

1:29 am
labor intensive coffee region you've got going to. i've seen people crying over what they're being paid for a bag of carter and beans people just crying out of desperation. current prices mean that farmers make less than one cent of the u.s. dollar for each cup of coffee sold across the world farmers here in colombia wondering for just how long they'll be able to work at these prices there's already gave up like the owners of this field that abandoned it two months ago. it's very painful it's devastating because we spent all of our life growing coffee quickly because. these are new plants that just started producing last year so much work such a big investment yet the situation is so bad that these people decided to let the beans rot. a small representation of farmers held a sitting in front of the embassy of the european union in bogota to bring
