2:09 pm
on to hong kong human rights and democracy act that's the remarkable achievement of all the hong kong is no matter a democrat or republican is the new bipartisan consensus from both the u.s. administration and the congress is to stand with hong kong to pirate high suman rights and democracy and not being overrun by the trade negotiation and out there is andrew thomas says china sees the movers an attack on its sovereignty. this is on the one hand about the practicalities and the potential sanctions but it's also about the symbolism that what they disparagingly call the so-called hong kong human rights and democracy act means now in part that is about the specifics of what is going on in hong kong they say that by passing the sites and by donald trump signing the exact it is encouraging the violence in hong kong and it's undermining the sovereign say that china has over hong kong it undermines this whole idea of
2:10 pm
one country 2 systems and it's the u.s. interfering in hong kong or it's china's internal affairs on the other hand though they say that this goes further and this is all about the u.s. really demonizing china even more than it has in the past i'll read a bit of the statement so you this act will only further expose the malicious and germanic nature of u.s. intentions to the chinese people including our own can compare traits and the chinese people will only standing great to solidarity with us attempts are bound to fail so that is beijing really say that this act doesn't just relate to the specifics of the violence in hong kong but it really is symptomatic they think of the way that the u.s. is treating china more broadly and they say the consequences will follow from this that an outline what the counter measures will be but beijing is saying they will come and north korea has launched what appears to be 2 missiles that's according to

2:12 pm
a visit to an artillery unit on an island in the maritime border area between north and south korea and oversaw a an artillery firing exercise which irked people here in south korea no end because of course that goes against completely the spirit of the pyongyang declaration that was reached at the end of last year during all of that the summit diplomacy that was taking place and it was seen as a way of north korea showing its frustration at the stalled negotiations or as a way of putting pressure on south korea and also it shows just how the relations have cooled since those heady days of a year ago we've got lots more to come here it out is here and clued in we'll have a live update from albania on the earthquake rescue efforts from one of the worst hit cities. and thousands of colombians and

2:18 pm
a dozen given to us by a high level state source yesterday. is likely to go over 50 and what about the hundreds if not thousands of people who are now without shelter. well that is the biggest problem of the prime minister was on television this morning saying that that is his main concern at the moment there are at least 2 to 3000 people here in this city who are displaced they can't go back to their homes if you drive along the beach front road here where all the most expensive properties and hotels are you can't see a single building that is inhabited and many of them visibly damaged so this entire area could be declared uninhabitable therefore the number of people who will be long term in need of shelter could rise in the many thousands in the
2:19 pm
coming days as engineers check on these buildings and declare them safe or unsafe the. people have to run about 36 kilometers from here are also afraid and there were no fatalities in that city last night i took a walk along one of the main avenues in that city and saw hundreds of cars parked for kilometers on both sides of the avenue and on the pavements on either side filled with people's sleeping under blankets they just don't want to go indoors overnight they are traumatized by what happened to people on tuesday and they don't want that to happen to them all right john thank you very much for that john psaropoulos bringing us the very latest from duras in albania now recovery efforts in kenya have been stretched beyond their limits by the devastating flooding and landslides in west pocket county so people looking for their missing missing

2:23 pm
by un peacekeepers who've been tasked with their protection now the nato. secretary-general yen stoltenberg is in paris is going to be meeting the french president and more than likely discussed the public criticisms of the military alliance made by the french president in an interview earlier this month mr mccraw described nato as suffering brain death he also criticized the lack of strategic coordination between europe and the united states and the u.s. has announced plans to cut its contribution to the alliance and germany has announced that it will increase its payments let's go live now to the leave a palace in paris natasha butler is our correspondent there and the comments made by mr mccraw make for a rather awkward encounter there between the secretary general of nato and the french president today. yes you can imagine
2:24 pm
the secretary general of nato you installed in burgos arrived and he met the french president on the steps and 2 had a rather long handshake maybe that is a man or michael trying to show that he is warmly welcoming stoltenberg even though of course stoltenberg isn't very happy with some of the comments that michael made earlier this month in an interview when he said that nato was brain dead so you'd imagine that sort of vocal inside the very frank conversation with the french president find out exactly what he means and exactly why he made those comments now michael for his part is restored by them he says that nato is suffering in a way it's dying if you want to continue to use his imagery because of the u.s. is unpredictability lack of leadership and also a lack of coordination between the members of the alliance and i know mark also believes that european countries have to do more to look after their defense and they can no longer rely on the united states stoltenberg however said look as far
2:25 pm
as he is concerned that the alliance is still very strong he has said that some of the comments made by mark will have of course. frustrated many other nato members who see them as really being irresponsible in some ways and undermining the credibility of this alliance and sort of said this is like has been around for 70 years and of course there are differences between different members but that doesn't mean that the alliance is over. right indeed but there is a sense perhaps more generally is it then that the trash of the nato is in need of a refresh if you like or it needs to redefine itself in a way and i think that's something that mrs merkel the german chancellor has weighed in on reinforcing the necessity of a nato even though the cold war is over. yes i think you know comments are very much in keeping with his style he is a straight talker he is very frank and often his comments are set to other leaders
2:26 pm
but at the same time they often have an effect in kind of motivating people to come up with some new ideas and what we've seen is the german foreign minister coming for coming up with a plan that would be an expert panel to review nato he is saying why not get a group of experts from outside this organization who can really look at nato and look at perhaps what needs to be improved and it seems that sort of bird is interested in this and it is something that might be discussed next week when nato leaders meet in london for the 70th anniversary of the alliance they have a special summit there and the idea is perhaps if they approve this that this expert panel will come up with a report that would be then reviewed next year around november after the u.s. elections all right the tasha thank you natasha about live there live in paris. the protests in colombia remain defiant thousands of them demonstrated for a 7th consecutive day they're angry about corruption and propose cuts to the
2:27 pm
minimum wage many a demanding the resignation of president k. alessandra reports now from the capital bogota. and unions and student groups called for a national strike on november 21st few madge and it would have sparked an unprecedented movement the marches that day were the biggest in decades. and night spontaneous demonstrations broke out in rich as well as poor neighborhoods and have continued now for a week and abated. but this generation will cop colombia's finally awake and if demanded to be head this hour has come to find solutions to our social problems we are not afraid anymore to speak up and show ourselves to the world despite being one of the most unequal countries in the world seldom brought their grievances to the street. decades of civil conflict with rebel groups in paramilitaries violent
2:28 pm
drug cartels in killings of political and union leaders had silenced social my lais . but the signing of the peace deal 3 years ago that disarmed 5 rebels seems to have also opened the door to long to collect their demands i can think about it now . let me answer that on my. head that never look like head to head at least in the march. to other types that move in here related to education can see it but perhaps. the president's response has mostly been to discredit and criminalize the demonstrations well playing lip service to their constitutional right to protest. we are living moments of great demand in society but let's be clear the arsonists will not win was violence what they. did will not help them at the polls. in recent days riot police have used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the mostly
2:29 pm
peaceful crowds one teenager died after being hit by a gas canister rallies continue though the protests here haven't reached the kind that savored frenzy that we've seen in chile or bolivia or act whether impasse. they are going to be able to answer you say that the police think so so. that many believe it's here. i think colombia's going through a political transition where the piece to the international contest and a new generation are all playing a role where we don't know yet is where we're going with it. while it's unclear what they were achieved these protesters believe the time has come to confront many political challenges that have been postponed for way too long alison ramp you just got the word. hungary has charged the captain of a cruise ship involved in a collision in may 27 people died when the mermaid sank in the river danube
2:30 pm
ukrainian captain has been charged with misconduct leading to mass casualties and failing to provide help most of the victims were tourists from south korea. let's have a look at the top stories here at out a curfew has been imposed in the iraqi city of nasiriyah of the 16 people were killed in antigovernment protests security forces opened fire on a demonstration the army says it's sending commanders to several provinces to restore order meanwhile iran has demanded firm action from the iraqi government after an attack on its consulate in the city of najaf on wednesday antigovernment protesters stormed the building and set it on fire demonstrators blame tear around for propping up a government they have been railing against miami has more. we've heard again and
2:31 pm
again from protesters here they are tired of the outsized influence of iran in politics clearly this is worrying iran but also it's very much worrying the shiite led government here in iraq when you look at what's been going on here when you see how the parliament has been trying to reconcile the demands of the protesters with these efforts to try to mollify them by attempting to pass let's say electoral reform that is not doing anything to mollify the protesters. in yemen people are gathering at santa airport in the hope of seeing who's the prisoners of being released by the saudi immorality coalition the airport has been closed since only 16 bit the coalition has decided to allow limited flights china has accused donald trump of sinister intentions after the president signed a hong kong human rights bill that could help protect protestors beijing has threatened to respond rescue workers in albania are racing to find survivors from

2:33 pm
hi i'm steve clemons and i have a question has congress convince the american people that impeaching president donald trump is justified let's get to the bottom line. the impeachment inquiries officially 2 months old and it seems that the only thing that it is really proved is that americans live side by side in 2 parallel universes in one donald trump try to bribe a foreign country into investigating a political rival to win the elections next year and then the other democrats are conspiring to destroy the president at any cost and their partners are an evil media spewing fake news diplomats and bureaucrats from the quote deep state plus some ukrainians who many believe are the real meddlers in the last election rather than the russians so what universe are we in fortunately we have 3 people in the
