controversial decision to move the second leg to europe after disorder and chaos two weeks ago in bonus areas river plate fans attacked the bucket junius boss leaving several players they didn't medical treatment after two hours of politics and confusion the game was finally called off and an attempt to play the following day was abandoned so i thought calm about falling by the decision to apply the second i cared about about image a decision as much about fulfilling a very right as i was about five the met with encourage you to think i'm on the streets about a third twenty five thousand people from each corporate officially tickets but only five thousand. in argentina. the final should be in argentina. it's crazy i mean i can't believe that it. seemed possible well after the child care madrid does have a substantial argentinian population officially over seventy thousand people
including a father and son on opposing sides and. it's too good an opportunity to miss we never dreamed of a watch a book or of a match in spain especially not a final you know risks are being taken there were four thousand placed security and stewards on a. river plights objected strongly to this which threatening a refusal to apply their manager. said fans have been robbed but their players and i would try ing to show diplomacy if you're going to get a leader many people are hurt and that's something we can't fix with words only with results this is a unique event outside our country but we have to enjoy it. also agree three years ago they were kicked out of this tournament when their fans attacked with his players they wanted to be declared champions. it's kind of a weird final and as a player it's important. not to lose focus because it's the copper liberty dorris final image rid. back in the teams were given an incredible sendoff by the puns
it means so much to them but it's a rivalry that often spills into hatred and violence argentina's window to show the world by could co-host the twenty thirty world cup was ruined by hooliganism and their biggest ever top guy was sent to spain. al-jazeera madrid. the pressure is on the friending champions manchester city in the english premier league they currently in action at chelsea and need to win to regain the lead at the top of the table it's not looking too good right now and go to a country with a forty fourth minute goal giving chelsea the lead in that one at stamford bridge now earlier liverpool moved ahead of them in the standings with a four nil win at bournemouth three of the goals came from egypt striker mohamed salah like title rivals city liverpool are yet to lose in the premier league so far this season over in spain severe missed the chance to go top of the league as they

attacking wise and when i'm in the experienced i am a less experience of guys we haven't seen it it's a good combination and so. i think we've been able to get that right from the beginning which has allowed us to go and flourish on the pitch in the n.b.a. le bron james is thirty five points couldn't stop the los angeles lakers being beaten by the san antonio spurs in texas on friday james and the lakers had beaten the students on thursday and had a fifteen point lead at one stage of this game the braun getting the lay up here and drawing a foul san antonio accidentally listed le bron as a rookie in the pre-game notes would you believe. they'd make the three time champ look somewhat inexperience on the face it was this a bad time so quick fire three points in the fourth that killed things off winning this one one hundred thirty three one hundred twenty. after a long season lewis hamilton has finally got his hands on the fuse for me the one

iraq's second largest city mosul is beginning to return to normal more than a year after i saw was defeated the for those on the other side of town it's a very different story about the some reports. to hear music drifting across a public square in mosul would have been unthinkable just over a year ago when i saw fighters were in the city streets and being outside after nightfall could mean a beating or even death. this is a message of peace that eisen is no longer here in mosul the society should live in peace and harmony after these dark days. this is the eastern side of the tigris river here people are trying to reclaim the night while knowing a short distance away lies stark remind us of battles. in the west side of mosul is still in darkness most of the people there. is alive but the west side is dead
there is total destruction there it is like to hear regime a bomb dropped. daylight reveals the devastation on the western banks of the tigris people who used to live in houses of bricks and cement in western mosul and i was sheltering in tents in camps like this one thousands have lost everything parts of eastern mosul may look like they're returning to normal but people from the west say there's nothing normal for them to return to. so do mohammed has been living in this tent with his family since their home in west mosul was bombed said lost both arms in the attacks and. we can return to mosul right now security is still fragile our houses are level to the ground there is no life for us there anymore it is better to stay in the camp for the time being despite the harsh living conditions people in mosul say the wreckage west of the tigris as a memorial to the city's dark past. but that the bustling parts of the east are the

protest as this time demanding emanuel back comes resignation china warns there will be consequences over the arrest of huawei executive man one joe on fraud charges on the belgian museum which is shining a light on the country's doc colonial past. we begin with breaking news this hour u.s. president donald trump says his chief of staff john kelly will leave his administration at the end of the year this is the latest in a series of moves by the republican needed to change his in a circle of aids. john kelly will be leaving resign but i don't know if i can say retiring but he's a great guy john kelly will be leaving at the end of the year will be announcing will be taken john place it might be ordered it debases i'll be announcing that
over the next day or two but john will be leaving at the end of the year he's been with the almost two years now if you go between the two positions so. we're probably going to see every little while. or can really allocate has more now on john kerry's time at the white house. we just soiree general kelly crisis may have ended john kelly's time in the west way but the four star marine general was brought to the white house to restore order his brothers rather be president donald trump took him from his post just homeland security secretary in july of two thousand and seventeen he replaced the first chief of staff writes priebus thanksgiving kelly's first order of business was firing communications director anthony scare mucci who'd been on the job for just ten days for disparaging white house officials in a profanity laced interview for a time kelley was described as the adult in the white house reportedly imposing
military like discipline on staff and limiting access to the president very well but in october of that same year a botched military mission in new share that left four american soldiers dead cause some to question kelly's judgment kelly attacked a congresswoman who criticized the president's mishandling of a condolence call to one of the widows it stuns me that a member of congress with a listen to that conversation. absolutely stunning. but the controversy surrounding rob porter a top trump aide may have been kelly's biggest fumble kelly defended porter when his ex-wives accused him of physical and emotional abuse so did the president as you probably know he says he's innocent and i think you have to remember that he said first strongly yesterday that he's innocent but the administration was forced to back away when photos of one ex-wife's blackeye surfaced bolstering her claims
the case led to questions about how porter given his police record had received security clearances and led to others in the administration including the president's own son in law jarrett cushion or seeing their top secret clearance revoked other trump reports surfaced that kelley had referred to trump as an idiot something both men denied other top officials like former secretary of state rex tillerson and former national security advisor h.r. mcmaster were let go after allegedly making similar insults in recent months kelli's tenure has been marked with reports of fights including reported shouting match with national security adviser john bolton as well as disagreements with first lady a lani a trump. kelly is the latest in a long list of high profile departures can really help al jazeera the white house let's get more on this story now with joe castro who is in washington an idea that
had been reports for many months that there was a clash of personalities between the president and his chief of staff and that john kelly was essentially on the way out it's been confirmed by the president what else did donald trump say to reporters at the white house. well mary he said very little at this point but he did confirm that kelly is leaving by the end of this year the end of this month and as you mentioned this was a widely expected departure that had been rumored well even before the u.s. midterms these two men had wildly clashing personalities there's the free willing president who gave hours long press conferences at which you often find kelly kind of cringing in the corner and then you had kelly himself who is a retired marine general who was hired last year by trump to instill discipline and chaos in what at that time was a very chaotic white house. has he also was expected
to be in a sense reined in by kellie's hiring a year ago that really didn't happen it only served to breed resentment in the president leading up to this point where both men seem to find this relationship untenable and we're expecting kelly's departure by the end of this month merriam what are you hearing their idea about likely successes to junk. well the name that everyone is saying is the most likely choices and make a years he is the chief of staff for the vice president mike pence errs as such if he's someone who is politically savvy and the type of person that trump wants and needs frankly as the new congress is sworn into office in january his republican political party lost control of the house of representatives in the midterms and he needs someone who will be on his side politically so really bad for the white house and for the president on capitol hill now it's not it's not it's not unexpected for
a president to make a series of staffing changes after a midterm election but if you look at the number of departure isn't the types of people who have left the trouble miss. in this year alone we've had the attorney general the u.s. ambassador the white house counsel the u.s. secretary of state and a slew of other high position cabinet members now you add the chief of staff's position to that list and what we have is another wave of departures that's very reminiscent of what happened in the early days of troubles ministration when his mecurio style of management and his personality led to an unprecedented wave of departures and then alienating much of his team merriam thank you very much with the latest on that story from washington heidi joe castro well this of course follows the release of court documents on friday which directly linked the u.s. president to financial crimes allegedly committed during his twenty sixteen white
house campaign the documents filed by new york prosecutors claim donald trump directed his personal lawyer to make it legal hush payments to two women ahead of the election additionally documents filed as part of the special counsel investigation into alleged russian meddling in the election also details previously a previously unknown attempt by a russian to help the trump campaign. has more in this now. shortly after the release of some of the prosecution documents the u.s. president expressed his lack of concern totally clears the president he wrote thank you it's not clear exactly what he was referring to but some believe the contents of the latest memos should provide some cause for concern for donald trump michael cohen was trump's long time lawyer and fix up he's pled guilty to tax evasion and campaign finance violations and it's this latter charge that now directly implicates the president in its filing prosecutors in new york say code made to hush money payments to women in contravention of campaign finance law that filing
says as cohen has now admitted with respect to both payments he acted in coordination with and at the direction of individual one individual one is assumed to be donald trump so prosecutors are directly implicating the president in the crime the special counsel's moment about co and confirmed what was already in the public domain about failed attempts to build a trump tower in moscow that continued even as trump was on the campaign trail expounding about his proposed russian foreign policy however there are two new areas which might be of concern to trump firstly miller writes cohen provided the special counsel's office with useful information concerning certain discrete rusher related matters core to its investigation that he obtained by virtue of his regular contact with company executives during the campaign and cohen provided relevant and useful information concerning his contacts with persons connected to the white house during the twenty seventeen twenty eighteen time period. it's unclear what information miller is referring to during the campaign but it's striking cohen is
also discussing trump's first year in office with the special prosecutor. miller has also submitted a document about former trump campaign manager paul manifold he was convicted of illegal lobbying for the ukrainian government as well as financial fraud the special prosecutor says manifold broke a plea agreement reached to provide information in return for like a sentence this involves a redacted name miller says while negotiating the agreement mamma for provided information about reduction that was pertinent to an investigation in another district however after signing the plea agreement metaphor told the government a different and exculpatory version of the events in addition miller says manifold lied about context he had with the trumpet ministration after he had reached that plea agreement the former director of the f.b.i. happened to be in capitol hill for a closed door questioning on friday he praised the special counsel's investigation but gave a reminder that a lot of questions remain the most important occasion of that is you don't know anything about it except when he files something court and that's what makes it so
don't trump has now been implicated directly in campaign finance violations but it's not clear what these latest filings have to do with the russian collusion investigation if anything however taken in conjunction with this heavily redacted document that was filed earlier this week in conjunction with the investigation into a former security advisor michael flynn there's plenty of speculation she had written c. washington. a french interior minister says the yellow vests protests are now on the control its police levels could remain as they are until sunday thousands of protesters rallied across the country in a fourth weekend of demonstrations which began as a movement against a fuel tax but has since evolved into a challenge to president. david chaytor ports from paris.
ha ha ha ha what the yellow vests called act for their protests played out with some familiar scenes in the center paris. hundreds of arrests were made but it didn't stop the clashes hot demonstrators tried to storm the blockades mounted by the riot police. started has now become. very some moving in on the other best protesters who are trying missiles at the police lines they're now using tear gas tear gas and stun grenades out.
