got wet so we had to go and stand where there's a roof and we didn't sleep all night. it's going to be that way for some time for this caravan of central americans they've got to take wanta right up against the u.s. border but now they stuck nowhere to go and nothing to do. some brush up on the football skills others practice their poker faces or explore the small playground for the umpteenth time. the clothes washing areas busy series of phone charging station at fifty cents a go. in a passes the time with the daily concert for anyone who cares to listen to them and that it will be them also it's a way to forget the bad moments that we've gone through with all been suffering so it's a way to forget that stress. they were queues for the country laid on by the mets can they be and the buses going to a newly arranged job fair but the semblance of order can't last this makeshift camp
3:33 am
is always full but you can see people are still arriving day me here saying there's going to be no space for anyone more. authorities say the city can't deal with the influx any longer sometimes people believe the newcomers bring only crime and problems. others do what they can to help it ok with them so you know i don't think we should lose our humanity at the end of the day where city of migrants and mexicans have had to cross as well into the us. that's what everyone here wants to get to the other side instead they're setting up for the long haul just a stone's throw away john holdren now does it or to. the reimposition of u.s. sanctions on the rainy and oil exports are threatening various parts of the iranian society but one business sector in particular believes it's very proof. has a story. the men and women in this room take saffron very seriously at
3:34 am
a conference hosted by the university of toronto experts are discussing risks and challenges to the industry rising market demand climate change and of course the one thing every iranian business worries about american sanctions. and i know we're the main producer and exporter in the world there's no alternative sanctions have no impact on this industry the world needs so they need to buy our products by legal or illegal means was so tin our products will be exported saffron doesn't need much water to grow so traders are encouraging farmers dealing with nearly a decade of drought to swap crops the farm to table process can be labor intensive delicate work but in the end it's a lucrative ninety percent of iran saffron is exported and a kilogram can sell for around fifteen hundred dollars the spices a key ingredient in cosmetics perfume food and medicine the international demand is
3:35 am
high and people who wanted will usually find a way to get it. sellers say that makes u.s. sanctions a buyers problem and. that it will know this year fortunately even sanctions have had an impact it's actually better because the price has gone up. packed into these little boxes is the culmination of hours of manual labor by dozens of people and that's why this sought after spice is so expensive so can safir on save or runs economy technically it is possible but there is a problem of scale iran does not make enough saffron accounts for less than one percent of iran's overall revenue from exports. still it's big business in small town iran and profits are up. and you know. though for some it can be backbreaking thankless work i want to point out. the harvest season lasts only
3:36 am
a month and pickers are out from dawn to dusk they say the minimum wage is not enough and they want a bigger share of growing profits but the key to them with me we live in poverty we come here early in the morning and sometimes when i come home my child complains saying i don't see you we're not even off on fridays in the middle of winter when everyone sits next to a heater in this freezing cold with force to do this otherwise we wouldn't do it help. while the government has poured money into helping the saffron sector thrive the benefits have yet to trickle all the way down the same bus ravi older zero four but the head the rear. it's.

3:39 am
a six two seven five six four victory in just under two and a half hours croatian now just need to win one more of the remaining three matches to win a second davis cup title. world football rivalries don't come any bigger than that between arjun time clubs rubber plates and barca juniors the teams will play to the side which will be crowned copper limited or as champions this weekend and supporters are being whipped into a frenzy over the skein barca fans have packed into the bomb born at our stadium and when our side is simply to wash a team in a training session ahead of saturday's final the club's played out a two two draw in the first leg here two weeks ago these fans won't get to see the second leg across town of rivers monumental stadium as away fans are banned one of them getting too excited even for the first but fortunately for him carlos tevez rescued him from the cops and introduced him to the guys for the nine thousand season stadium was over capacity and they said now authorities have closed it down

3:42 am
being excluded from the twenty twenty lympics the i.o.c. has ruled that that could happen if taiwan goes ahead with the name change but supporters of the name change say that it's humiliating for taiwan to have to compete in international sporting events as chinese taipei and not taiwan and they point out that this place has been a self governing island for the past sixty nine years the voting age in this referendum is also being lowered from twenty to eighteen that's significant because opinion polls show that many young people are in favor of the name change also the threshold for eligible voters has been reduced from fifty to twenty five percent which means that a simple majority will suffice all of this of course poses something of a di lemma for taiwan's government because if the vote is in favor of a name change it means that legislators will have to present a bill for parliament to vote on and that will present the government with further

3:51 am
we have been in touch. have a strong belief that this third person in the voice recording and can be the crown prince mohamed man but i have to emphasize that technical analysis are being conducted in the hours haven't been concluded yet but in order to identify who that third voice belongs to turkey needs a technical support from the united states now it is a concern of course now we haven't been able to confirm whether turks have already asked for an assistance from the u.s. side but of course if the technical analysis conclude that this so was really belongs to mohamed bin some man as it is believed to be here probably u.s. president donald trump would be happy about that what further evidence has come to light. well there are very
