they have to alleviate the suffering of civilians especially those who are living near by the fighting areas but as you know. this cannot be good emptied as you know that both leaders on both sides either side raj here in tripoli or have to at least they cannot have full control on their troops on the ground so unfortunately this truce could be reached at any time if any of the watering factions starts this war again or alone with mahmoud are going to are. so i had an al-jazeera wants the world heritage site city and 17 is is being damaged by pollution i think minorities in canada struggling to get lifesaving stem cell treatment we'll tell you why and it's brought strain of williams and i only our sack of meat for the 1st time since the controversial us open forum that.

the cape we are looking at fairly dry conditions but we are going to be looking at windy conditions as well if frontal boundary is pushing through capetown with some clouds there on sunday and that front will make its way towards durban by the time we get towards monday really drop those temperatures from 30 degrees all the way down here towards 1000 degrees there johannesburg though is going to be quite a nice day with a temperature of 23 degrees in harare sun in your forecast at 25. it's very difficult as a chef or restaurant or to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving is going to be good seafood by nature is a high risk monitoring sometimes trip was raised using production drugs. that are not approved for use in the us the f.d.a. simply isn't tasking enough on the imported market to really find all of these violent bread to feed take note at this time on al-jazeera.

12:21 am
studies at georgetown university he joins us by skype from madison maryland good to have you with us so this is i think the largest gathering of people for a pilgrimage or at least one of the largest gatherings of people for the pilgrimage give us a sense of what this means for those who are for it is a pay to get. yes more than 2000000 muslims are to be attending arch this year i think when you realize that the pilgrimage is one of the 5 major or more fundamental beliefs and practices of muslims and that is the a pilgrimage to mecca which brings together a muslims who really come from very different cultures. politics nations but become together and symbolize the as it were the the unity of
12:22 am
of islam the muslim that transcends. nation states it's been a major. practice that that has existed on throughout the history of islam and i think it's important as you emphasized. today that the arab and the gathering together this was where the farewell sermon was given by the prophet mohammed and muslims come to come together there to remember that farewell sermon and the promises that you know that came from that john if i have faith in him many people might think that neck area simple no the question of why mecca many people might think well because it's associated with the founder of of islam the prophet muhammad but actually the importance of mecca as a place of pogrom age long predates the days of muhammad right. that's right i mean
12:23 am
in fact muslims would see that the notion of pilgrimage the pilgrimage going all the way back to the prophet abraham. ends and so there's a continuity seen throughout history but then there is this you know special way to do that that was introduced by the prophet muhammad. and you know everybody wearing white doing the same thing is the talk a little bit to the theme of the dress rehearsal for the day of judgment kind of thing you know i think it really is to reflect that despite all the different differences language ethnicity color etc this is a single community and it's and this symbolizes that as they come as they come together. and and that message of unity. a very powerful one right in the muslim world if not the global human community now that that's facing
12:24 am
increased polarization is there a message there for everyone. well i think that there is a me and i think that you know part of the message certainly. in a world in which we see whether you're talking about muslims or just global politics the shock divisions that are taking place today along the lines of ethnicity and religion whether it's in the western europe or a muslim countries with regard to the muslim world i think the messages to it that it should address the current rivalry and division that increasingly is existing between iran and saudi arabia who are for influence because it also feeds then. and exacerbates a division between sunni and shia muslims and a lot of this is connected to what has been going on politically for example the the war in syria and particularly the who war in yemen the saudi
12:25 am
see iran as a great influence there and the other side of it is iran sees the saudis as basically you know engaged in in warfare and and and killing both military and innocence and indeed much of the international community has question that that kind of bombing so there's a real kind of rivalry in tension within the region which can have a spillover effect and are always good to get your thoughts thanks so much on the specific of that. now 4 palestinians have been killed near the gaza or israel border this video appears to show flares being 5 in the air in the southern area east of that about one as israeli soldiers shoot at the man these ready army says the palestinians were armed and attempted to breach the border. south korea's military says north korea has fired what appears
12:26 am
to have been to short range ballistic missiles from its eastern coast into the sea last week north korean leader kim jong un of a soul similar launches he says the tests are a warning to the u.s. and south korea over their joint military drills u.s. president donald trump earlier said he'd received what he called a very beautiful letter from kim and that he wasn't bothered by the recent launches golden chang is the author of nuclear showdown north korea takes on the world he thinks the u.s. needs new more to put pressure on pyongyang well the north is up to a 1000000 in the present the united states you know just hours after president bush said about kim kim fires off these missiles and you know on one level you can say well the president's not perturbed he's letting the north koreans just play this out but we've got to remember that this is the 1st stage of an escort or cycle the north koreans will continue that stage and when they do it will be much more
12:27 am
difficult in the later parts of the cycle to stop it and certainly much more dangerous so i think president trump needs to sort of changes policies and impose some costs on north korea for violating these u.n. security council resolutions on missile launches this sort of harks back to his predecessor president obama's policies at strategic patience you just ignore what the north koreans do and don't appear to be bothered by it but the problem is that north korea is continuing to produce fissile material and it's continuing to improve its missiles so this is not a good story for the united states you know the north koreans are not making any concessions we're making all the concessions this is not good. now police in kyrgyzstan have raided the t.v. station owned by a former president back of his arrest on thursday has raised fears of instability and the potential power struggle with the country's current leader laura birdman

12:52 am
live from washington d.c. so she had to have any details on how a man on suicide watch was able to kill himself. well that's the interesting thing just the last half an hour oser n.b.c. is reporting that in fact he wasn't on suicide watch and it was had been reported that all of the what appeared to be an attempted. suicide attempt a few weeks back he had been placed on suicide watch and b.c. the reporting there that when his body was found immediately preceding that he had not in fact been on suicide watch in his cell that he didn't share with with anyone else the f.b.i. is investigating his death as you mentioned however we're hearing that they don't suspect any foul play but it's out of abundance of caution but clearly his death in a cell in a federal prison is raising all sorts of questions because of the nature of the allegations against him just on friday all sorts of doctors a 1000 thousands of documents on sealed from
12:53 am
a case from from against one of his associates that alleged. a young girl had been made to quote sleep with many powerful men including numerous problems american politicians business executives foreign presidents a well known prime minister and other world leaders as a result of of abstains activities are clearly there's all sorts of conspiratorial talk now on the way but i think the problem with that conspiratorial to a perhaps is it's based on the assumption that with epstein's death the investigation of the prosecutions go away by the criminal prosecution will go away because there's no one to prosecute but the civil prosecutions will continue and in fact perhaps the suggesting that now it's even more likely that we'll get we'll get to know what was in epstein safe his house was searched in july when he was arrested all sorts of evidence was seized. epstein could have had the standing to challenge the use of the evidence in court but he's gone now no one else perhaps has the standing to challenge the use of the evidence or perhaps this
12:54 am
makes it even more likely that we may understand finally who exactly have seen most of what he was up to so does the entire legal process come to an end with his death no that's exactly the point i was i was trying to make that the civil process will continue and that is based around not just epstein's over the allegations against epstein which he had faced once before in 2007 he had faced very similar allegations of child sex trafficking for sex for sex in his own house as you know between him and young goes however there is i mean face life imprisonment potentially for those charges but in a very controversial plea deal he immediately got like 13 months in a private wing of a county jail in florida with work release it was an incredibly lenient lenient deal for him and crucially as part of the deal all the rest cords about what he actually was accused of and who else was involved were classified were would take
12:55 am
it out of the public the public realm and actually the person who negotiated that deal the time the federal prosecutor in florida was subsequently alexander acosta donald trump's labor secretary he had to resign as a result of this so the weird thing is contrary to popular assumptions of many of the conspiracy theories his death might mean that we get more information about what exactly obscene was and who and who he was. even that thanks so much you have written. a fuel tank that has exploded in tanzania killing at least 63 people it happened in the town of the northwest of the capital dhamma him how many has the latest. a rush full field that ended in tragedy a fuel tank had been heading from darcy none to tanzania's capital the derma when it overturned to close to a bus stop in the town of moral. people came to take what they could. but then

care and there are fears they'll be more who don't survive or heal mohammed al jazeera. has the latest from nairobi in neighboring kenya. survivors say that when the truck tipped over petrol started gushing from it and that drew a crowd of people trying to collect the fuel using buckets in jerry cans it was important to understand that in the small towns and rural areas that these fuel trucks drive through many people are poor and some free petrol which is otherwise going to go to waste anyway for somebody like a motorcycle taxi driver this can help keep children in school help to feed a family but with a large crowd of people gathering trying to collect fuel this went on for about 20 minutes that's enough time for the fuel to soak into the ground in the surrounding area a lot of it to evaporate into the air and then of course just one small spark of flame is enough to ignite it that's what happened there was a very large explosion and as we've heard 60 at least 60 people have been killed in
12:58 am
a similar number and now in a nearby hospital many of them in a critical condition and the medical officials have made a call out for people to go and donate blood because they're now facing a severe blood shortage there as well protesters in hong kong have now taken their rally to the popular shopping district of cowardly crowds of barricaded streets in the busy area as riot police move in gas has already been fired at the protesters who are rallying in defiance of a police ban. protestors following what's happened throughout the day. so the day began with a demonstration in a town called typo that's in the new territories up near the border with mainland china it was very good natured families were involved walking through the streets even though the police said so that the demonstration wasn't allowed there was no
12:59 am
way they were going to stop the thousands of people who turned out at the end of that demonstration most people then drifted away but several 1000 people stayed they occupied the streets they set up barricades there was a standoff where i lined up with riot police and then soon as they heard arrive then the word went out so it spreads very quickly amongst the group was we know this is a group that says it doesn't have any leaders. from one thing to another they decided to leave which they did and come to a number of other locations around new territories and cow loot and this is one of the this is shot is this is where there have been confrontations before they have quickly moved into this intersection in this junction have set up makeshift barricades as quickly as they can trying to block traffic they have partially managed that they brought traffic to a standstill but then very quickly word went out again that the police were on their way they moved very quickly to set up these barricades but now we see that
1:00 am
there are police that have come from a nearby police station very close to here it remains to be see now what these police will do and the police have just charged across that intersection clearing the protesters away and reopening the road again as the protesters we think have melted away again into the shopping center here possibly then to get on to the subway system the n.t.r. one maybe to go to another location but the police believe in the scene they detected some protesters using laser pens against them and they responded with guns which used. so-called. ammunition but the protesters have taken off. back in their vehicles waiting for the next call as this game continues through saturday evening around the streets of hong kong. now russian activists say police have arrested nearly 200 people at protests in moscow.
