3:34 pm
escape libya but as far as- being taken. . where they will face away some nicice. the vast majority of those brought back today a from saddam. the toll of the real deal is klia. with filming one of the migrants asked to speak to us without being identified. yeah of reprisals if you would be able. to. q. monster too much but you can see. they wait on the dog over three hours the weakest
3:35 pm
treated for hypothermia by medics from the international organization for migration. one the authorities are overwhelmed. a lot of kids. the film secretly of libyan officials trying to work out what to do . we told my quincy often through themselves back into thehe water to try and escape. finally at eleven thirty pm libya's immigration brigades decide to take the man away to overcrowded detention centers. and tensions mount. thank god money is gone all filming is
3:36 pm
clearly disturbing usual proceeding. usually there are a few thousand migrants on libya's cecenters. but i have a rule the figure is way higher. there are thought to be nearly a million cocool top in the cha. the. not approving catherine norris trent and her team and they will be another full from libya at the same time. tomorrow now fighting between israel and the palestinian group islamic jihad continues for second day of sources in gaza say at least twenty three people have been killed. in israeli air strikes israel claims that twenty of the dead were members of islamic jihad. nearly two hundred rockets have been fired at israel with dozens of israeli civiliaians treateted for mild injuries catherine viet test the latest. this pit of concrete and metal
3:37 pm
is all that's left of the building in gaza where this door of family used to live. according to the israeli army it served as a command post for the group islamic jihad. the family says ahead of the strikes and israeli intelligence official warned them to evacuate. i would line as lean. as we were leaving the house he stayed on the phone with me. there was no caller id he told me that they were going to hit the house with a drone missile. test if there is anyone left inside. i said no unless when they hit the house after a a couple of minutes a second missile hit. the latest round of fighting began early on tuesday when israel launched an air strike on gaza killing a top islamic de hi commander. hi i have l. ida as well as his wife. since then the two sides have been exchanging fire which is deadly in gaza and lead to injurieses in israel with severl hundred rockets intercepted by the country's defense system.
3:38 pm
i've already said that we are not looking for an escalation but we are respondingg to o evey atattack against us. with a very sharp attack and response. i think thatat islamic jihihad bet understand that now rather than when it's too late. hamas which controls gaza has joined the islamic t. hiding condemning israel for its actions but so far the group has refrained from joining fororces and launching rockets of its own. to washington now with the first public hearings in the impeachment enquiring into president donald trump or on the way the top us diplomat in ukraine has claimed that trump was date leverage us eight in order to pressure the country's presidenents andnd ski to investigate. political rival joe biden trump has always maintained there was no quid pro quo and bill taylor's comments are likely to be seized upon by democrats who are pushing for trump to be
3:39 pm
removed from office. take a listen. and turkey is also watch by mid july it was becoming clear to me that the meeting presence lynskey wanted was condition. all the investigations of a response an alleged crane in interference in the twenty sixteen u. s. elections. it was also clear that this condition was driven. by the a regular policy channel i had come to understand was guided by mister guiliani. well we join now by eric me son of former federal prosecutor and legal expense and joins us now from washington thank you very much as always for being with us and now. i'm back to the taylor gave that testimony a short while ago i think that give the democrats the ammunition they needsds if nothing page john because they will need the republicans for that but to convince americans that they should not. vote for donald trump next year. while laura good question because we're jumping ahead to the elections which are just- a
3:40 pm
year away not not even quite a year away- the end that is often a very hard one to answer but- i think. we can safely say that- the more this goes on and the more this testimony and evidence comes out. there is going to be some sort of erosion a continuing erosion of support for the president because we're seeing that already. in the polls it may not be huge it may not be enormous but the president never had the support of a majority of americans to begin with. remember he was only elected because of the peculiarities of the way the electoral college system works in united as has ever. lost by. yes that's right now that what was different this time was- he lost by almost three million votes which was by far the greatest margin of defeat. in the popular vote for any winning president the electoral college that will be his path to victory again if there is such a path. but so every vote
3:41 pm
is going to be crucial this certainly is not going to help him i think it's a foregone conclusion that the evidence here is strong enough that all of the democrats are 99% of them. in the house of representatives will vote to impeach that is to send this into the senate for trial and in the weeks or months to come will see how that turns out. because that will be much more difficult to get the twenty republican votes in there that are going to be necessary to. to get the democrats but this is not a good look for the president what he's doing here right now trump says he's too busy to watch- the impeachment proceedings- the- the question is will american voices of the watching because- we've kind of been here before me. with with robert muller do you think that if i just might be a bit fed up with all of this with these hearings in these. long. day long testimonies on on capitol hill. so voters are others are.
3:42 pm
very interested so we have a polarization on that front and you are correct that there's- a little bit of a fatigue because- the way the mahler hearings went to was not. conducive to really holding people's attention and making them understand the issues. here it's a simpler issue it's really just extorting a foreign country. a not a good look for the united states to be holding up the authorized military aid. for purely personal political benefit of one person the president. so most americans can understand that and i think more of them will be following this. but there is certainly- are hard core base for the president- maybe 30% maybe more i'm not sure. nobody can say precisely that is going to be very very difficult to move. but among democrats and independents- this is going to be very closely watched and is- according to the polling having quite a significant effect.
3:43 pm
right now and many people are watching today's testimony and it is fairlrly c clear as to the condnduct that went on now the front runner in the democratic race is of course set at the central of this. of all of this joe biden is there a risk. at the- merge is going to i'm going to kind of see that this is not at the bar you'll phrase a good look for joe biden other. given what was happening w with with hisis son and you cried. right that's clearly a big talking point for republicans and nobody's reallyy defending what hunter biden did and hunter biden himself o on on tv. and was fairly honest thahat he shouldn't havee done it however it's also very clear that joe biden. himself did nothing wrong and it also throws back attention on president trump's own children who are orders of magnitude more implicated in- it move murky- profiteerering using- government leverage.e. that hunter biden ever was so it's hard to see what the effect was there's a lot of democratic candidates- thahat je
3:44 pm
biden has t to contntend with. s true we probably hasn't dealt with this as forceful as forcefully as he- could have and so to that extent this- the president's attack here. might have heard him but i think b by the timee e everythining comes o ththe election h hter bididen hihimself will be much much less of an issue. than he is today how does rudy guiliani fit into all of this because his name is come up several times today he is of course a- donald trump's pass no law yeah and is there a risk for him that he might. end up going the way of another of trump's previous noise. could he be taking full for all of this yes there's a. a well he could be i think there's very close ties- obviouslyly that between him and the president and that's what's- helped him and there's the that the president has what's called the pardon power. it's controversysy able to it what are the limits of it but he that this president certainly is exploring what those limits are. and we know from
3:45 pm
reporting- it seems to be basically confirms that giuliani is under criminal investigation so for him this is very serious and somewhat extraordinary. that he could land in prison just as you've pointed out the president's previous lawyer michael cohen. is currently in prison and giuliani could find himself there now two of his very close associates that are being talked about today these. ukrainian american businessman who were indicted for making illegal campaign contributions and have been implicated in some of this ukrainian extortion- they- are. to some extent giving statements to authorities this is not going to be helpful for root of rudolph giuliani. and it's not in the long run helpful to donald trump either given their close connections. so giuliani is a central player in this he was a driver into in what is look being looked at as the impeachable conduct here. and it may land h him- very well in jail all right eric he stand
3:46 pm
great to get you inside thank you very much indeed for joining us. well as i mentioned donald trump says he's too busy to watch those impeachment proceedings he is instead talking to techies president- do one at the white house. he arrived at in the soft inane and his visit comes just weeks after trump threatened to destroy the turkish economy. over ankara's decision to send troops into northern syria and attack america's kurdish allies. this was only made possible off the trump withdrew us troops from the area. today the trump insisted the two men were good friends they are expected to hold a joint press conference earlier we will bring. . you that's- when that begins but now. anti government protests continue in lebanon one day off to president michel our own told demonstrates is to go home and they blocked major highways. using burning tie is about to stay put until the government stepped down and in a worrying development has been a second shooting. days a man opened fire in one town north
