just picking up with a southerly push on those winds as we go on through sunday what's the weather around the lakes pushing over towards northern parts of the appalachians mid atlantic states could see some wet weather but as i said still no sign of any right across the western side of the u.s. some are frightened that we got some very heavy rain in a full cost across western parts of the caribbean little cloud just been talking about this for the last couple of days and that slightly to develop into a tropical depression if not a tropical storm that will run its way up towards the yucatan peninsula heavy rain there for billie's for honduras what's mala city seeing the possibility of some flooding it pushes a little further north and west was through sunday elsewhere sunshine it sounds. the. current tensions between countries along the river nile have their roots in the colonial past from the point of you not to think not in agreement with the pools of victory the new political realities on the ground are increasing the sense
of uncertainty over koons the rhythm on that with the need to do to help the country through which we may come been and. struggle over the model on 00. 1 with his own talents and working in asia and africa where i'd be choosing editing my own stories in a refugee camp with no electricity and right now we're confronting some of the greatest challenges that humanity has ever faced and i really believe that the only way we can do that is with compassion and generosity and compromise because of the only way we can try to solve any of these problems is to get them that's why al jazeera is so important we make those connections.
i'm going on the top stories on al-jazeera this hour u.s. president donald trump has been moved to a military medical center for treatment a day after he and the 1st lady test the also for corona virus will be cared for in a special suite for the next few days the white house says it's out of an abundance of caution and trump posted a video message on twitter thanking people for their support and said that he's doing very well the president's medical team says he's having mild symptoms and has been given an experimental antibody cocktail. meanwhile the u.s. democratic presidential nominee joe biden says trump's infection is a reminder of just how serious this pandemic is he wished donald and melania trump well and said that he would withdraw negative campaign ads about the president's. let's cross over to walter reed national military medical center where the
president has been admitted mike hanna is joining us from there mike what do you have for us what are you hearing. well we're still waiting for information to come from the hospital and importantly we're still waiting to hear who exactly this information will come from it is assumed that now he is under the control of doctors here at the hospital they will be setting up some kind of format to keep the american public informed as to the president's condition it must be pointed out that throughout the day most of the information about the president has come from his political staff not from medical personnel so this is the 1st point that we are trying to find out when is the information going to be handed out in what form is it going to be handed on and what body is actually going to be giving the american public updates on the president's condition we understand that he is now ensconced in the hospital in a suite that has been specially prepared for him where he will according to his stop continue to work in coming days they are putting
a timeframe of some 4 days on the his presence here at the hospital but once again we're waiting for food details about this and most importantly about what is the president's condition at this particular point now you saw the video that the president tweeted ont thanking everybody for their well wishes we also saw him walking into marine one on his way to the hospital i was outside the gates here when the marine one landed just inside the gates of the hospital president trump walked on the steps on a did got into a car and was driven to another point in this vast medical complex here so at this particular point very little more to tell you we are waiting to hear from various personnel in particular from the doctors who are treating president trump at this particular time here mike and as you're saying the president did post that video on twitter and he did walk into the helicopter and then walked into the medical
research center so the optics of this are crucial for this president who always wants to appear strong and in control. indeed yes but one must note as well that the president has had to be admitted to hospital now his stopper saying out of an abundance of caution this is a phrase that we've heard throughout the day and likely to hear in days ahead but there's a critical point here is well is that we're not only dealing with the virus and treatment offered what we're also dealing with is that experimental cocktail that has been administered to the president this is made by a company called regeneration which was in final phase trials but has not been cleared by the f.d.a. it is very much an experimental drug now obviously within this hospital with its greater facilities and bigger stop the it effect of this cocktail will be very
closely monitored so we're not only looking at the impact of the virus on the president we are also looking about what kind of impact is there having administered a dose of this experimental cocktail so there's a lot going on here and the point is as well that the fact that this experimental cocktail was administered certainly a very huge move indeed given that it is not f.d.a. maintained i cannot recall a leader of state being at minutes to something that has not been through proper testing and this is itself something that people will be watching very closely including those doctors inside the medical center behind me me who will be monitoring president trumps progress and a possible recovery from the virus all right mike hanna thank you very much now the world health organization's chief says he wishes both the u.s. president and the 1st lady a speedy recovery. overnight we heard the president of the united states of america
do not and 1st lady may learn a term tested positive for cope with 19 i want to start today by wishing them bows a full and swift recovery. with them well donald trump is not the 1st world leader it's a contract the virus brazil's president also narrow tested positive back in july the british prime minister boris johnson was moved to an intensive care unit in april after contracting it he's tweeted to wish trump and his wife a speedy recovery lets him baba has more from london. i think we all want to send best wishes to the president and the 1st lady and i've done that this morning as you can imagine and i'm sure that they'll both stage a very strong recovery british prime minister boris johnson was one of the 1st world leaders to send a message of support on friday one that was informed no doubt by personal experience earlier this year i was at a hospital the other night where i think there are
a few there are actually if you create a virus of patients like shook hands with everybody that admission in march attracted criticism for sending a dangerous message just weeks later soon after imposing a national lockdown the prime minister announced he tested positive for covered 19 and would be isolating i developed my old symptoms all the coronavirus. he carried on working appearing outside 10 downing street for the weekly applause for health workers and looking on well he extended his self isolation then 9 days after testing positive he was admitted to this london hospital his colleagues insisting he was in good spirits and leading the government but 24 hours later the shock news was he'd been taken into an intensive care units he spent 3 nights there he was never on a ventilator but after ending his stay in hospital he said medical staff had saved his life after returning to work johnson who's 56 said he'd been way overweight before contracting the virus he started a personal fitness regime and
a national anti obesity initiative. his reaction stands in sharp contrast to another leader who contract coronavirus brazilian president. from the start of the pandemic the 65 year old consistently downplayed how dangerous the virus was covered for i think what i mean are the this is him in march around the same time boris johnson was testing positive saying if he were infected it wouldn't bother him as it would only feel like a slight cold in july he did test positive but even after getting the all clear weeks later he continued to show disdain for mask wearing and social distancing. this week boris johnson was asked directly whether he'd fully recovered his idiomatic response suggested he felt better than ever i'm fitter than i was before i may it may it may irritate you to know i have to do that to the butcher's dog. thanks basically to losing weight but he also accepted that so-called long covert which is left thousands of people in the u.k.
with serious problems months after contracting the virus clearly exists a reminder that truly recovering can never be taken for granted. al-jazeera. and other news armenia says it's ready to work with mediators to re-establish a ceasefire and i'm going to karabakh 6 days of fighting between armenia and azerbaijan forces over the disputed region has killed dozens of troops and a number of civilians are in its methods and i'm going on karabakh where he visited towns and villages in the firing line off as a reformer. it's the safest place in town but everyone here is scared for 5 days the women and children of matteucci have been hiding in the town's bomb shelters well that is good. and i've been here 6 days how should we feel my sons are on the front line sometimes he managed to talk to them we're waiting for peace
and for a victory and for sons to return. throughout the night or when the air raid siren goes off this is where people run for cover. above ground mark tunis largely abandoned. the 1st mortars hit on sunday that's when fighting flared again between azerbaijan and the self-governing armenian enclave of nagorno-karabakh is the most serious confrontation since a ceasefire ended a war in 1904 that killed nearly 30000 military personnel. these rockets landed just short of march to the art school and you can see the extent of the devastation there this is right in the center of. this town not far from the front line between azerbaijan and armenia has been hit regularly since sunday by as air force. what i like that's i'll go up there on the floor i'm lucky my head didn't blow off reza make background tells us. you know hit him and shot at his
shop and home as he sat down for lunch ross make is a veteran of the 1st war here which broke out when armenian majority karabakh broke away from azerbaijan during the breakup of the soviet union. your bottom line we survived somehow we found some bread it's enough what are we going to do i'm staying because everything i own is in the house and i want to look after it all. towns and villages all along the border with azerbaijan there in the firing line no one was home when this cluster of 4 homes was blown apart. myrtle knows that this is our village our home or should i go my children ask me why are you walking out in the village i say if i hear the sound of the bomb it's best if it hits me i won't even know it why should i be frightened and over this turkish animal. the leaders of armenia and azerbaijan say there's no we needed likelihood of talks
so they'll be more of this. and for those waiting for news of their sons and husbands plenty to worry about. but it's made al-jazeera in a goanna karabakh. of a 07 class or go spoke to azerbaijan's president and back about the conflicts. at the 1st the moment his forces are in a battle over a disputed region azerbaijan's presence in how mali ever put the blame squarely on our minya the main reason is that i mean your doesn't want peace they want to keep our lands on the corporation for ever they don't want to change the status quo and this is a reason why i lasted so long because otherwise if i mean it demonstrated with a real the conflict would've been resolved many years ago. the battle is not only in the field but it's also being felt in the media and elsewhere both are many and
as our bridge accuse each other of hiring foreign mercenaries to fight in. but the president denied any foreign involvement and that turkey shot down an armenian fighter jet this is fake news absolutely is this a fake news as a says a turkish if 16 shot down 25 to 25 had an accident but they say they have evidence to present where is evidence i think armenians control mcgurn a car of aa but many in prime minister and he quote has now gone further and said. it's part of armenian soil while presidents have accused their mania of causing this latest round of fighting. you really look at what our media did after the so-called revolution. during the last 2 years and were very clear
we will see that they were always provoking us and they were aiming at starting a new war as the reason is to disrupt negotiations completely the conflict between us our bridge on and armenia doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon both sides have preconditions on any possible negotiations the dynamics of their internal politics are also of a concern. as are big john has vowed to retain what it considers very territory and ses it's ready to destroy any threats coming from armenian soil there are many in government ses it's ready to work with mediators but it warns any aggression towards not go in a car or a bar will receive every salutes respons see namco solo al-jazeera but as our beach um well you can watch the full interview with azerbaijan's president ilham
aliyev on talk to our desire on saturday at 043-0100 hours g.m.t. and also an interview with the armenian prime minister in a call passion eon on sunday at 0830 g.m.t. . well the democratic presidential nominee joe biden says he will reassess the u.s. is relationship with saudi arabia if he wins november's election biden says he joined the international community in mourning john who was murdered 2 years ago mr international and reporters without borders marked the 2nd anniversary of the killing of the saudi journalist with a rally outside the kingdom's embassy in istanbul that's where he was last seen jim has more from istanbul. friends and colleagues of the gathered outside the saudi consulate here it's again on friday despite 2 years passing justice has still not been served and those widely believed to have ordered them planned his murder remain at large coinciding with the 2nd anniversary of his killing turkish
authorities leaked a previously unseen footage from inside the consulate a reminder that the world still doesn't know all the details of what's happened to jamal after he entered the consulate never to be seen again. herschel g. had been writing for the washington post the 1st anniversary of his murder was mocked in a high profile vigil attended by the post's owner and the world's richest man jeff bezos a monument was placed just yards from the saudi consulate store a place for people to pay their respects for the slain journalist who was not afforded even the rights for a proper burial a saudi official still refused to disclose the whereabouts of his body or his remains. only this year's anniversary is being marked with the launch of the organization which will he was setting up before he was killed dawn or democracy in the arab world now it was this type of work his advocacy for freedom and pluralism that earned him the wrath of saudi crown prince mohammed bin son man jamal was perhaps the arab world's most famous political exile in saudi arabia try to silence
we will give a voice to thousands like him struggled for change in their countries while his friends and colleagues have succeeded in continuing his legacy through the launch of drone there's been little success in the fight for justice. after initially denying they killed him saudi arabia then pushed the narrative that the journalist was murdered by what they described as a team of rogue agents a snotty mask images a video it took months before any form of court proceedings began and even then they lacked any form of integrity or transparency in december 2019 a saudi court sentenced 5 unnamed people to death and 3 others to prison for the murder but those sentences were commuted 3 weeks ago in what the united nations special envoy on extrajudicial killings described as the antithesis of justice. meanwhile turkey says it's committed to holding those responsible for the murder to
account on thursday the prosecutor's office said it was indicting 6 more saudi citizens in their ongoing case the latest names include true consulate staff crown prince mohammed bin some man who is believed to have ordered the murder appears to have weathered the fallout he's still very much in power and world leaders continue to do business with him but even in his death the remains of foreign in his side and one that could prove to be even more damaging still. a stumble still ahead on al-jazeera i. pads in india defy a ban on protesters anger grows over the gang rape and murder of 2 women. 2 planes came from studio and 15 men checked you know to tell you stuff you're not

hello again people in india are defying a protest ban in the state of our protest following the recent gang rape and death of 2 women from the marginalised dallas community they cases have reignited a national debate on sexual violence and a discriminatory cost system involving both citizens and politicians sarah hierarchs reports the. an emergency lockdown and a ban on protests haven't stopped people from gathering at this village in india's northern states of to pradesh this is where a 19 year old one of 2 women from the marginalised dunnit community was gang raped recently resulting in her death was scuffles broke out

samples that were collected didn't show any trace of sperm this makes it clear that some people used this case to try to stir cast tensions in the state was a claim refuted by forensic experts in the victims' families who accuse the police of destroying evidence and cremating the body of 19 year old victim without her family's permission. facing heavy criticism the government has promised to fast track the cases it's human rights activists and the opposition blame it for allowing police to use excessive force against protesters including the detention of congress party leader raul gandhi and his sister on thursday. culpability is also completely asserted me it's not in the public domain if it's happening it's happening only in the level of the department and that doesn't build public trust it would build public trust of the police reported to the public this is why we have to take the action that we take. student british marines says police in delhi
