4:03 pm
a torrential rain over the weekend. and that means that people living in a live in downstream along the patio river as far as the city of co ci have been put on alert in case of flooding from the release of water. now they're doing this because there is more heavy rain projected for all of cadillac from wednesday. and this is what the states water resources minister told us about the preparations dinardo. i'm worried for all the dams are under control now. and the government has made all arrangements regarding the relocation of people living in the catchment area of the dams and also to other places where this water could flow. no one is relocated as of now, as the water discharging is in a limited and controlled manner. now what the government is trying to do is of the, the kind of disaster that happened during the months in floods of 2018 when at
4:04 pm
least 400 people lost their lives. the government faced criticism for both delaying the decision to open the waters to release the waters rather from the reservoirs. and then once they made that decision for not giving any notice to people who were living downstream, those are both scientists reasons to some of the widespread damage and destruction . they're also emphasizing that the release of the water from the dance is being done in a staggered and in a controlled manner and catalyst chief minister that the state lead up to that i vision has said that they have increased the number of relief cams of shelters in the state to and 40 keeping in mind that as well as all of those people who were ready lost their homes over the past week 1000 so, and shelters more might need evacuation because of the release of the water from the dams. and if those heavy rains which are predicted for wednesday to come
4:05 pm
through, right, we have to return to that story later and speak to someone who is in that northern or to con state about the situation there. for now, we're going to look at ethiopia, where healthcare workers in the ticker region of demanded the federal government lift the siege on mckelly. a shortage of medical supplies is worsening. the humanitarian crisis in that region. the you and it said 400000 people were experiencing famine. and a further 1800000 people are on the brink of it. samuel get a journalist who we speak to from at a sample are about to develop and stare. so this, as we said, assess sage on mckennon, having such a, an extraordinary effect, what are the chances of getting it lifted? well, you know, there, there doesn't seem to be any compromise from the ethiopian side or from a t p level. what we've seen from, for example, those, those that are protesting integrity is trying to express the pressure been going on
4:06 pm
a local clinics and hospitals trying to kick take care of so many victims. and so many people that are in need of medical help and a system that's almost broke, and that's why they were protesting in front of the u. n. trying to express what's been happening and that's what we're beginning to see from a distance. so is it a case that nothing can get in at all, or that there are just supplies running short or from aid agencies and the like well, you know, as you mentioned, 91 percent of the population are in need of some kind of emergency aid and according to us aid close to 1000000 people are it's facing family conditions. the need is so much overwhelming, you know, you can send in so many so much trucks from w p. the fact is the need to so much and the people are in need of this support are just overwhelmingly so much and
4:07 pm
there's only so much you could do and much of the pressure i've seen it. i've traveled to the region, you know. 2 in last, earlier this year, what we beginning to see what we've seen from far as and from near is the fact that the hospitals are just being overwhelmed with not enough medicine to even treat the most basic needs of a po to really, really in need. mean, i feel like of our students before, samuel about who possibly can intervene in that situation. now that time we were very much talking about the, the larger issue of, of, of, of ticket. but in this emergency situation, is there a group or a person, or a state which has some influence here and could make a difference? well, there are many organizations that are so was not however respected by both sides of the african union has been trying to negotiate some kind of ceasefire and have the 2 parties focus on the human. is there a needs of
4:08 pm
a population that have been under seed for a long, long time for almost a year? but, but you know, he is, there you is a, is a strong partner in your best developmental age, which is, you know, after i've said before, it's your peer has a growing economy, but it's still an a dependent nation. and even nino mesh named like obama has been mentioned to me carter from the u. s. there are many, many names that are being mentioned. and this goes on as many people are still suffering and facing again, family condition for many or fast. oh, going back to the iraq, the job and famine of 1984, 85. extraordinary goodness, sam, you get a true always a pleasure. thank you for your time. thank you. thank you. at least 43 people have been killed by attackers in nigeria is so quarto states, gunman, storm to market and good on you on sunday. and there are sold carried on to monday
4:09 pm
morning. attacks by armed gangs have only been increasing in northern nigeria. well, from mad interest, he's in a butcher. these attacks have been carried out by on groups in the north that have been operating in the north for them for a state in particular. they've been there for more than a decade, and they're killed. thousands of people displeased tens of thousands, most of them crossed into neighboring countries like michelle public. and because of recent military operations, they have been dislodged from most of the forest areas they've been occupied in zone for a stage. so some of them have spilled over into neighboring states like so could, although they keep talking so could from time to time in from that basis and i'm for and other parts of north western virginia. but now we understand that these benefits, according to officials, also have moved from their basis after they've been dislodged by military ass, strikes and ground operations there. and they are targeting communities in other parts of north western niger, especially a states like sort a state that
4:10 pm
a lot of government spaces in the north west of the country. like just in the northeast of the country where i bought them another. and i've been operating, there is little or no government presence is fucked in areas, nor infrastructure, no security presence, kidnapping for rent. some is high right now in the north of the country and in this office and for parts of my g, y, i'm groups. i've been gathering hundreds of millions of dollars since they started these operations. so a lot of criminal gangs and of course are the individual caching in on the, on the lucrative business, illegal business and way in northwest of nigeria. so that's the situation at the moment. more now with could be down there who's also in a boucher managing director of beacon consulting, which is an intelligence and risk management consultancy. nice to have you with us . just listening to our heads report fair. what strikes me is how brazen these attacks are. i mean, this was happening over a good number of hours happening in an open place. it seems almost lawless. there
4:11 pm
now. unfortunately, yes, and it was echoed by the governor of the day when he visited the incident of the cock and called on the federal government to increase it security presence in his state. in particular, let remember that if it had already implemented some extraordinary measures in an attempt to address it, security challenges, where about 4 to local governments have been morally put incommunicado. the only means of communication with communication networks and been in it corrupted and duplication than yet the types of things up and. and again, there early warning signs that could have indicated a difference of a talk wood or call. and then you know, the fact that they are attracted or calls and that they are targets where breathing
4:12 pm
enough to continue or, you know, given the hours that the carried on with their tug is the claim indication that the current security architecture. unfortunately, it's not providing security at that level at a level. and so why is that? i mean, it just looks like the government, the federal government is pretty much abandoned the state and its people there. and as such, these attacks will only carry on and probably get worse. so not, not necessarily it's, it's a combination of several factors. them one of them, of course, if the, the mean luck of coordination between the federal and state government, the government do have a rule idea sharing dictate security control. and then they also receive what's in your cost that you would, you would, it's a huge sum of money that goes to them that they're meant to use for that you read
4:13 pm
the book with. but then the level of coordination between the 2, the government as well as the lack of transparency through, which is one that i mentioned i b, unfortunately, has created quite a bit chilly. but i think that the general consensus at the moment narrative is that the central life nature of security and nigeria needs to be changed to allow state level default nationals to have more involvement in security management currently. ok, kabir odami. thank you for your time. we've got plenty of other needs to get through, so i'm going to leave today, but thank you so much for your time. thank you. you want to get back to our top story that's floods in parts of india. we'd already looked at the south carola, with our correspondent, we're now going to look at an off with oppression. john, who is the times of india, corresponded with her con, he's in atlanta tell which is that who are city that's been really battered by the the rains present. tell us what it's been like there. so it's been
4:14 pm
a pity dive for the last 2 days. that he started on sunday morning, and in the last 24 hours, we've had with 400 millimeters in industry. so people are confirmed that the actual data most likely to the next few. a few days i'm under so people are still stuck in hotels. and in home state and several other locations that on any position is more or less similar in other districts like with them. so you know that and so as i mentioned, flooding going on where you are in the north and in carola. now when i was talking to a correspondent carola, we were discussing preparedness and saying, well, the monsoons we know that they come, is it the same sort of situation where you are that you can only prepare so much for these sorts of events? yes, because it's a real estate and the more sort of what they're treating it's, it's the fair fact. and that really see such a heavy, the fall of food the entire season, the,
4:15 pm
the daily number for i don't 6070 millimeter, but in just 24 us. anytime that's $100.00 millimeters will be so many department has issued alert administration. both was prepared. but again, i mean there's so much that you can be prepared for in a situation like this. yeah. how would you say that the, you know, infrastructure attains their authority, rescue teams how they're managing to cope with this? so the army has been called in, in, in a force is also doing somebody school was the national just disaster response post is here. the state disaster responsible says yes, the chief minister of the state of what's going on. so did somebody of something he spoke to the prime minister, the whole minister, and they were short all hell. but again, these are the villages that have been struck by the cloud both and delivered in fort betty far from the road that been cut off. so that it is limited to resources be the state. but when i spoke to the administration, officials and the state government officials, the thing that that
4:16 pm
a school will be will see you and still dozens of people who are missing goodness present. i'm glad we could talk to you and you know, cover india from north to south. so these flood, thank you so much for your time. thank you. 50 minutes past the news hour. here's what's coming up. oh, they're unhappy with the election results in iraq and update from baghdad is on the way on the clock in greenland, the country dotted with the bonded u. s. military bases and other affairs that the retreating ice club may release toxic waste. they thought stay trapped for years and sport with gem, a big punishment for an n h l player who used a fake coven vaccine, hot ah,
4:17 pm
well, the head of the european commission says a recent ruling by poland. constitutional court is a threat to the very foundations of the european union. a polish court ruled parts of the blocks, treaties are incompatible with poland constitution. now the use threatened consequences saying the primacy of its laws must go undisputed. more than a 100000 poles rallied in support of the e u. last week over concerns the country could even leave the block on other members. we cannot and we will not allow our common values to be put at risk. a commission will act and the options are all known. first, option and fingerprints, where we legally challenge the judgment of the polish constitutional court. another option is the conditionality mechanism, and other financial tools. the polish government has to explain to us
4:18 pm
how it intense to protect your appeal money, given this ruling of their constitutional courts. i live on the land, pretty unequivocal there, but poland prime minister says he will not be intimidated by what he calls blackmail from the e u. g stand process social note back here. today, this process has come to such a stage that it is necessary to safe talk. you do addiction have boundaries and i must not remain silent when the abridged. that's why you're saying yes. do you open when you were selling them and know the europe in central ism now supporters of pro iranian factions in iraq are protesting against the result of last week's parliamentary elections. ah, in fact i see you live pictures coming from baghdad at the moment. parties linked to the power military, great known as the popular mobilization forces. so big losses in the election. so the crowns in baghdad had gathered to demand a re counts a correspondent, mam,
4:19 pm
right up the wall. it has more from the rocky capital hundreds of protest. i have got out of here near the green zone and baghdad to protest against the results of the legislative election. now, these protest notice are supportive of the political parties. mainly she are political parties that last and then next year, they say they want re count of the votes. they're calling on the high election commission to conduct. and he kind of old the votes. now that is heavy security presence in the area to prevent any possible attacks or possible storming into the green zone by the protest. us.
4:20 pm
now, these protest is on accusing the government of fraud. in fact, they say that the government has manipulated the election. some of them, some of these protest out of our former and current former and couldn't fight at the public at the popular mobilization forces. and they told us that a warren, that if the political parties that they support lose in this election, then they lose the only political cover for them to lebanon, where the international monetary funds began. discussions which with the country which is in dire need of assistance with it taken on the crisis. but the government remains unstable. unable to actually do much or the political and fighting to do
4:21 pm
with the investigation into the better route port explosion. the tensions of course led to those st battle that we saw last week. more in this report from nevada. it's been nearly a week since the most violent st. battles in beirut, in years ended with an undeclared truth. but the political tensions about the investigation into last year's explosion, abbe report haven't gone away. just weeks after ending 13 months of political deadlock, lebanon, new government is unable to do much she political groups, emmelyn has below, who supporters fought with. as of yet, an identified gunman from the stronghold of the christian lebanese forces party are threatening to walk out of cabinet if the lead judge in the case topic baton is not removed. it will be interesting to see what has been learned and are willing to do and how much they are willing to escalate. the implosion of the government from within remains of an option. because if the mass resignation card that has been
4:22 pm
learned, i might could play technically. but that would effectively propel the country into a political crisis. to avoid that prime minister as she may add, he says he will convene cabinet until a solution is found to differences about the judge, who some accuse of political bias. this means they can't focus on rescuing an economy that has all but collapse. the investigation is the biggest legal challenge to the governing political class, which has for decades use the system to escape accountability. but our is the 2nd judge to take on the case. politicians remove his predecessor, what he started to charge officials was criminal negligence. the inquiry shows many of them you of the dangerous material at the port that triggered the blast. judge baton has tried to prosecute some of those believe to be responsible. he has issued arrest warrants for officials who refused to show up for questioning. but there has
4:23 pm
been no cooperation from the political and security establishment, which is now trying to find ways to take the case out of betters. hands basically the because then night now trying to put in place is one that was supposed to oversea. what judge feet are, does it took mcallison to try and control the flow of the investigation to try and put some controls over the movement of judge guitar and what he finds. but ours findings haven't been revealed and it's not known. if he found evidence linking those seeking to undermine his investigation, to the ammonium nitrate responsible for the devastating blast at the port. this investigation has caused a deep divide that led to a dangerous escalation on the ground. and now political deadlock, seneca, there al jazeera failed. the light has now on a significant north korean ballistic missile lodge. south korea has reported at least one was fired from the port of symphony that is on the eastern coast of north
4:24 pm
korea. around there, the missile is reported again, this is what the south koreans assigned to a fly about 450 kilometers in exactly which direction we dont know or botch bats. your range effectively are 450 kilometers from that launch point. it's sort of puts it in that arc with in the sea of japan. the military says, the military says the weapon may have actually been designed for launch from a submarine. all of north korea's reported to testify ballistic missiles in the last month intelligence chase in the us, japan and south korea held a meeting there, agreeing to strengthen the cooperation. really, japan's prime minister cancelled election events and returned to tokyo to assess the situation. though that is very regrettable that the country has continued launching missiles since last month. over the you thought you see, i'd rather not predict north korea's intentions of firing the missiles from my point of view, but i think we must continue making efforts on grasping the situation and
4:25 pm
collecting information. china watching this one closely as well. katrina, you has more from aging. we have conflicting reporting as to exactly what happened . south korea says one missile was launched, a bit depend, says true. missiles were launched, and at least one of those missiles could have been launched from a submarine. now if that's the case, this will be the 1st time north korea has successfully test launched a missile from a submarine. previously, they only did so from test borders. now, shortly after the launch, south korea security council met there were they were deeply alarmed by this incident. they expressed deep regrets, echoing the japanese prime minister's sentiments. later we had a response from the u. s. government using strong language condemning the test and urging the north korea to refrain from any d, stabilizing activities. now, beijing's foreign ministry has also chimed in using softer language. it said that all parties should maintain restraint and commit to peace and dialogue. china is
4:26 pm
definitely watching all of this very closely. now, this is the 8th. the missile test that shown young has conducted this year. the last one was just a few weeks ago at the end of september when phil young claimed to have tested hypersonic missile. now the timing of all of this is very interesting. it's in the middle of south korea is big diplomatic. push to try to reengage north korea in the d nuclear zation process that's stored under the previous us administration under donald trump. and today on tuesday, the intelligence chiefs of the us, japan and south korea all met in saw to strengthen their cooperation. so this could, this test could be in response to that meeting. and also it takes place. while in south korea, we have a weapons trade said the a dex. trade for taking place where various asian countries, including south korea shopping and looking to upgrade the defense systems on early and use our respect to graham on where the defense analyst and
4:27 pm
a research fellow at 9 young technological university. singapore, he says, north korea is really trying to remind the world here of its nuclear development program. i think we are looking at a convergence of considerations that have amounted to why, you know, young young had decided to do what have done. and, you know, executing this dismissal test, presumably a submarine based launching to solve to, you know, to communicate if you will receive a rattling of various things in the least. of course, i mean, just looking at, you know, capability development alone. i think the north koreans are trying to remind all of us that number one, dest, serious about this number to the, are pushing the envelope when it comes to developing, essentially, what will amount to 1st year nuclear power keep abilities. so i think that's something that has been rather disconcerting to all parties are, you know,
4:28 pm
impacted by this they are moving baby, baby steps if you will. not as far, relative to the development of other countries that have, you know, undertaken their own nuclear programs. nevertheless, you know, be where with all the coming, if you will, to find ways, walk around to get technical data to get, you know, to get the knowledge transfer to somehow make it there and to build these capabilities and to successfully test them. so i think that there's really no cutting off the regime ultimately, particularly in a globalized well, even in north korea, in consideration of that. and they will, they will find a way to get there. and i think they are telling us the are before we grab a break on the news, our check on the world, whether with jeff. hello, good to see you. we've got a surge of warm air moving across from the caribbean, right across the atlantic into western parts of europe. and this is also acting as a conveyor belt of what weather. so we're going to get striped with some rain
4:29 pm
across the republic of ireland and the united kingdom and things are going to be blustery as well. looking for wind gusts of about 65 kilometers per hour in places like london, we do have a dividing line between the warm and cool air. we'll call it copenhagen. so north of that, a cool pool of air and toward the south, we've got temperatures in the 20s, but this warm surge of air will make it into scandinavia and the baltic states on wednesday. so check this out. also for on tuesday, you're up to 11 degrees on wednesday, but it comes at a cost of white and windy conditions. okay, back to, to stance of the best weather on the continent is iberia, seville, 33 degrees, and full on sunshine. here, after central and southern parts of europe, we've just got some clouds drift in, in and out. here belgrade, 17 will be the high for you. and for turkey, still getting down with heavy rain toward the northeast black sea region. plague in places like tribes on with the hive. 16 degrees, and we've got a lot of storms bubbling up across the gulf of guinea. abidjan has
4:30 pm
a high of 27 degrees on tuesday. thank you for that. jeff, still ahead on this noosa. ah, if international pressure is finally working against me and was military leaders after this inter, really hundreds christmas also format nazi secretary sans trial and germany accused of assisting in the motor. thousands of people. and another grand slam helps the boston red sox take control of their championship series against houston. general huddled, we spoke a little awe compelling journalism. we keeping our distance because it's actually what dangerous ambulances i got, the explosion inspire program making. i still don't feel like i actually know enough about what a living under fascism was light, how much money did you make for your rural and deliverance unlike that?
