7:05 pm
government says as many as 300000 residents have already left in the monsoon rain has affected close to 2000000 people in eastern africa from tanzania to ethiopia markham where but with the latest now he is in morgado on the town of river delta. people living in the villages around here it's been devastating just a short while ago we walked over to some of the houses over here we had to wade through this playing field which is flooded water there's about knee deep in the houses on the other side most of which are made of sticks and mud and stones the walls have been destroyed people's properties being washed away has lost all of their livestock chickens and also crops as well to people had to flee from here moved to a camp for displaced people which is on some slightly higher ground just a couple of kilometers away you can see a school there that's been flooded but it's a stronger structure so it has held up that the on that the water gets deeper it's
7:06 pm
about waist deep on the other side of the school down there there's a hospital which is now completely out of use and many more houses in this area alone in the last week more than 4000 people have been displaced they're now living in a camp and a very simple structures is made of sticks with sheets and scarves stretched over them just a few kilometers up the hill over there. major oil exporting nations agreed to cut their output 550-0000 barrels a day talks when late into the night at opec headquarters in vienna they continued on friday opec has been cutting its production for the past 3 years that tries to avert a price slump there were disagreements over how to split further reductions this time around more with osama bin that the opec meeting in vienna is the thing a sandwich stewing cussing because this is an admission that there just isn't the demand out there. well there is that and there's too much
7:07 pm
supply out there as well and as with any cartel cutting is the biggest problem and that's what we saw in the last 24 hours panning out bickering among the opec members on who picks up how much and at the end it looks like saudi arabia is bearing the brunt of these cuts it's not going to be although it says that it has been it has revised its quota but it is also going to be cutting $400000.00 additional barrels in the dish and to its quarter in the $1200000.00 barrels that was decided early on so it has been drama we heard from the angolan very much in walking out seeing that but it is unfair the venezuelan saying that they don't want anything to do with this the russians coming out and saying they're quarter remains unchanged and they also got a $750000.00 plus barrels of condensate a byproduct of oil and gas that they have taken off of their quarters so it looks
7:08 pm
like a lot of people have gone home happy this was that deb you conference by a prince of the levees who is now the new energy minister he is going to be steering the direction of saudi arabia and into opec as well seems to he did get some consensus but it looks like that saudi arabia is going to be again doing the heavy lifting he said. because there are so many fundamentalists changing in the oil market there's about $800000.00 additional barrels of capacity coming into the 1st quarter of 2020 so there's going to be an extraordinary meeting which is going to take place in the 1st quarter around march or april next year also there is the elephant in the room of who's going to comply with these numbers because all of the members in theory say that they agree with this but in practice it is not the case in iraq and nigeria explain their points of view saying that they have been dealing with internal problems that's why they weren't complying and saying that they will comply even further with this new opec quotas so it remains to be seen how the
7:09 pm
markets are going to react to this how it is going to impact the oil prices because like you said demand is going down but supply is all also increasing despite these cuts by this oil cartel. or some of been at opec headquarters in the end i thank you the french government says it is quote very determined to implement a controversial new pension scheme french unions of call for more strikes and demonstrations next week against president emanuel micron's plans the announcement was made as hundreds of thousands of public sector workers went on strike for a 2nd day which is affected transport and schools and hospitals. donald trump and his lawyers have just a few hours left to decide if they will participate in the impeachment inquiry so far they have declined to answer any allegations the u.s. president committed crimes by pressuring ukraine to investigate his rival joe biden
7:10 pm
trump tweeted democrats are trying to impeach him over nothing and he said quote the good thing is that republicans have never been more united we will when democrats say they are aiming for a congressional vote on impeachment before christmas john hendren is in washington he says president trump is unlikely to cooperate. the widespread belief is that the president is not going to participate in the house version of impeachment the house of course comes up with the charges that they would eventually vote on whether to impeach the president that would then go to the senate for a trial the democrats control the house the republicans control the senate so the belief is that the administration would likely not continue not to cooperate with what's going on in the house but that they would offer a vigorous defense in the senate try to prevent the president from being removed from office but formally the president has until 5 o'clock eastern time to respond we expect that to be
7:11 pm
a negative response the big questions remaining or will the democrats go broad in their chargers or will they do what they've done so far which is keep it limited to this one exchange in ukraine with the ukrainian president in which president trump is alleged to have traded money for military aid in order for an announcement that ukraine would be investigating what he at the time thought was his biggest rival and that is former vice president joe biden a shooting at a u.s. naval base is that 3 people dead including the gunman at least 11 people were injured at the naval air station in pensacola florida most of unclear at this stage the base remains sealed off while investigators search for evidence greece has expelled libya's ambassador in the latest escalation in a boundary dispute involving several mediterranean countries there is a territorial agreement between turkey and libya it essentially draws a line in the east mediterranean sea cutting across

a strip which is also claimed by greece maybe as foreign minister says the expulsion of its ambassador from athens is unacceptable by his move from john psaropoulos in athens. the reason for greek displeasure at libya is that the libyan government had given the greek government assurances that it was not concluding such an agreement with turkey it was known that these talks were going on the greeks were concerned but can the the off the record discussions that the foreign ministers had had and that the ambassador had had with counterparts here was that this wasn't really a realistic prospect so this has taken the greek side by surprise and they believe that a certain amount of trickery on the libyan part. now the reason that the greeks are just pleased is that the legal reason is that the turkish and libyan areas of sovereignty in the greek you should not touch because greece lies between
7:13 pm
them greece says that according to the international law of the sea its southern region islands should have a continental shelf that comes between the continental shelf of turkey and that of libya so that that is why the greek side says this agreement is legal it says that we condemn it without reservation it is a role violation of the law of the sea. in the news ahead straight final friday protests in algeria just before the presidential election. had some pretty good conditions across central and eastern sections of china the cloud is on its way out of the picture leaving things a little bit cooler into shanghai as we start out the weekend just 10 degrees
