news hour from london thousands are left homeless after a massive fire in bangladesh destroys shanty homes in a crowded slum area a leaked government report predicts brecht sick chaos if the u.k. leaves the e.u. in october without a deal and in sport is formal while chanting sends out a warning message as it was the last 6 championships. iran says its oil tanker held for 6 weeks off the british mediterranean territory of gibraltar should leave in the next few hours it comes after gibraltar denied a request from the u.s. department of justice to seize the vessel a supreme court judge in the british territory ordered the tankers released when asked about the tanker dispute president donald trump said iran would like to talk . simmons brings us more now from. the adrian del
rio warm as it's called now also that's being displayed on all the automatic identification systems which shows that there is some level of readiness but let me just take you through recent events few hours ago a service boat came on the starboard side was unloading equipment and also supplies. using a crane before that this service but a bit on in perilous sea away from this the leeward side of the boats. actually transferring at least 6 new crew we saw additionally it would seem we heard of the radio a short sighted later a british voice definitely a british voice it seemed a requesting his laptop computer actually be lifted up there and then we heard that he would be returning to shore he has evidently been doing some sort of repair work
or maintenance on the ship he is he described himself on the radio to the to the port authority as technician the other crew we think office is and it would seem now that as the iranian ambassador in london have announced earlier on sunday that this ship would leave tonight as far as the super supreme court in gibraltar was concerned when it ruled last thursday it could be released all aspects of fulfilment of the compliance to the e.u. sanctions on syria had been really reached in the sure and his legal assurances submitted to the court and indeed all e.u. institutions were given however the u.s. department of justice tried to the last minute to get the detention order extended
that did not work the court threw it out it said it was fall to have the procedure been followed it wasn't within his jurisdiction. well in all the developments iran is saying a plan by the u.s. in turkey to create a so-called safe zone along syria's northern border is provocative and i'm u.s. and turkish officials agreed to establish the zone last week as a way to manage tension between turkish forces and kurdish fighters but the move has also been rejected by the syrian government who called it a blatant attack on the country's sovereignty. elite government report as predicted chaos if the u.k. leaves the european union without a deal there's now just over 10 weeks to go until the brics it date at the end of october but with no prospect of a deal in sight the leaked report warns of food and medicine shortages though the government insists it only outlines a worst case scenario so negate go has more. it paints a grim picture a leaked report in a sunday newspaper breaking down what the u.k.
civil service says would likely happen in the event of a disorderly exit from the european union and the havoc it could entailed the dossier known as operation yellow hammer offers an insight into the plans underway in the event of a no deal breck's it and the enormous feats that would have to be achieved to avoid disaster it details a vision of a country in peace time forced to undergo food shortages jammed ports and a lack of fuel and essential drugs unavailable for patients also the ria parents of a hard border on the island of ireland with the prime minister vowing to deliver bracks it by october 31st with or without a deal the line from the top is that the report is merely scaremongering and that it's now outdated as preparations have been ramped up i think some of the concerns about brics have been exaggerated it's the case that there will be bumps in the
road some element of disruption in the event of. the document that has appeared in the sunday times was an attempt in the past to work out what the very very worst situation would be so that we could take steps to mitigate that and we have taken steps not just to deal with some of the risks but also to make sure that our economy and our country a better place than ever to leave the european union on top of the 31st. in a bid to reinforce his promise prime minister boris johnson is set to visit french president of madrid back home in the german chancellor angela merkel his message that the westminster parliament cannot stop bricks it and the new deal must be agreed if britain is to avoid leaving the e.u. without the government has been putting extra money into contingency planning not just a few weeks ago the transfer allocated next for 2000000000 pounds to the sort of thing so you can't really accuse them of sitting on their hands they are seriously gearing up for no deal i think the aim is to get people in the european union to take that possibility seriously despite the swagger the reality for johnson is that
he faces a constitutional crisis more than 100 m.p.'s have written to the prime minister calling for an emergency recall of parliament to discuss the situation and the opposition leader jeremy corbyn said he would look at putting forward a vote of no confidence in the beginning of september to bring down the johnson government and avoid a no deal brix it with less than 3 months to go the political wrangling continues beyond certainty has left the once stable british economy teetering on the edge of recession and its currency sharply devalued and little respite in order to contain that turmoil so he got ya go. well for more on the story i'm joined by dennis novi associate professor of economics at university of warrick so 1st of all how serious are the consequences of a no deal breck's it described in this leaked government report i think that can be
very serious it's very difficult to say what exactly what happened where and which part of the country but what we do know is there will be serious problems at the border down in cali for example and certainly in northern ireland that means issues for food in particular because that's health and safety related pharmaceuticals these are the big issues that was certainly face up somewhere at some point the cabinet minister michael gove who is in charge of no deal planning is saying that in this report we are only. seeing a wuss case scenario described in other words a when it speaks about shortages of food and fuel and medicine this is an exaggeration well if we have no deal this is the worst case is will be the case i mean can't be worse and i'm in no deal means it's an easy it's a reasonable scenario yes not a west case yes but of course it's very difficult to pin down what will happen at a precise moment in time at a person place in the u.k.
but we know there will be problems somewhere and the reason is we will no longer have the same regulation as the e.u. we will be in a different area of regulation no longer being a member of the e.u. and that's why these problems pop up and with that kick in on november the 1st it will kick in at night and you will have by law you will need to have customs checks and we know that british businesses and businesses on the continent are not prepared therefore the problem will be that right the minute we leave in any brics it scenario there are going to be more customs checks more procedure is how much more exacerbated does that become in the event of a no deal so just in real terms we're talking about real henri's that bring food. and perishable goods into the country that will be stuck aboard it going through extra checks and just congestion that stops and getting through yeah it will happen is by matter of law you suddenly have to have checks where previously there were
none and by definition this is what no deal is minnow deal is almost a misleading name because it sounds like you and i are talking about something we can do greece so we have no idea this is not what it is it is in the leg it's an end of india because we have in india right now with the rest of the e.u. and that will come to an end it's not about whether you like breaks it will not everyone will have to contend with this and so in terms of the some of the ramifications that are outlined in this government assessment how serious could the food shortages be because obviously we rely on perishable goods and fresh food that is brought in from the e.u. but you know that this supply is going to be seriously disrupted well that will very much depend on how supermarkets and the government prepare for that particular industry so i'm not an expert on the supermarket industry would have to austin but of course will be and it is going to have it's going to hit businesses that trade with the e. class of course i mean if you are
a business that uses intermediate inputs from the u.k. for example for the manufacturing industry in the u.k. your entire supply chain right now is about pods criss crossing the border again multiple times and that will be seriously disrupted in the car industry has been talking about this for years even prior to the referendum so in some sense the announcement of today is no news we've been having that for years what is news is the circumstances we now have a government in place that for the 1st time talks about pursuing actively no deal and that's the new thing they've said that they actually promise at bars johnson has said that he would prefer to have a deal but he is prepared to crash out if something doesn't materialize we know that he is going to be speaking with the german chancellor angela merkel and president of france. ah his meetings this week likely to make any difference to this in a row again we've been there for years the key thing to understand is no deal is the worst case for the u.k. and that's why even boris johnson doesn't prefer it but it's not the worst case for
the e.u. the worst case for the e.u. is to cave in at the last minute and the simple reason is that it would undermine the single market and that's worse for them than having the disruption of no deal i think the real test for the prime minister is not the opposition i think the prime minister is quite confident that jeremy corbyn is a weak opponent the real deal for the prime minister is will his own ranks stand up will some tory m.p.'s get cold feet if economic trouble is down the way thank you very much dan is now the professor of economics at the university of warwick joining us at mexico city's south pole tepic park is one of the largest of an open spaces in the well that 7 square kilometers of park and forests offer a much needed response from one of the planet's most polluted cities for an estimated $15000000.00 visitors a year now it's been handed a prestigious global award as money wrap it reports.

transit the city of duluth there are species of trees here that actually trap contaminants from the air such as follows how organic compounds which are released when you burn fuel such as gasoline would coal or natural gas these dangerous contaminants are captured by the trees. there's even more good news coming from the world class to depict part mexico's federal government has allocated it additional one and a half kilometers of land to expand the already sprawling urban forest but up a little under mexico city. as well still ahead for you on the program and you see don we'll be looking at the challenges ahead for the next government following the historic deal signed between the military and the opposition. and i meant to ask i will never forget as a now really escaped death at the hands of a melting glass. and sri lanka claim

morgan reports on this now from hard to. take you outside this little bakery in sudan's capital hard to means there's more pressure on safety. the baker says flour isn't as cost as it was my months ago so people don't expect a shortage but because of other reasons there is a shortage usually looks a bit of normal there's a shortage of fuel and we don't know why it has resulted in a shortage of bread because we've had to cut back on the bread we break and so the . bread shortage in december sparked a protest that quickly became a nationwide call for the country's long time president obama to be sure to step down he was deposed by the military april after months of demonstrations. the military and protest leaders have now agreed to form a transitional government. the final power sharing agreement was signed on saturday after months of talks babying way for what's many sudanese hope will be a new start. but the upcoming transitional government has 39 months to function as
per the deal and many issues to tackle before elections are held at the end of its term. here and was ever possible 1st demand that we have for the transitional government is accountability for all those who did wrong to the people of this country no one should be above accountability and this should be a free and fair traditionary to deliver justice. for the geisha will stop shall i let that leave a lot needs to be done the government need to work on delivering health care and education the economy is important because we're suffering and we can't get food or child horse easily we want better services. and those are just among the many issues facing people here the transitional government will have to deal with the various conflicts around the country and the armed groups waging them some of those groups who are also part of the opposition coalition have rejected the agreement it will need to work on to dance kremlin constitution as well and hold elections all
in a government that's just hours between the military and civilian. talks to form the transitional government weren't always cool and they broke down several times before the deal was reached we have the home of some analysts say how the 2 sides work in their partnership will have an impact not just within the country but in its relations with other countries there's a lot of our sources i mean sudan is on the u.s. list of states sponsoring terrorism and to lift it a lot of issues need to be resolved with regards to internal politics like the issues of war and peace in the country and the main problem between the 2 sides will be in issues related to conflict and secure over to. the deal signed many like safe we'll be looking to see what changes come their way sudan is now a nation waiting to see if its new government will be able to fulfill the demands of millions of its citizens here but morgan al-jazeera has its own. migrants have attempted to swim ashore from the open arms rescue ship anchored off the coast of
