♪ . >> announcer: this is al jazeera. ♪ welcome to the news hour, i'm at the new center in doha and the top stories and we want to deal with kerry but not on any prices and dealing with allies in the middle east. waiting for help three days after a devastating typhoon, the latest from the philippines. >> i'm where the government has taken further steps to try to ensure security in this devastated city. >> reporter: and decision time,
5:01 am
cambodia wins a ruling on who owns the land around this temple. ♪ welcome to the program the u.s. secretary of state is speaking about washington's relationship with iran in a news conference and said during talks in geneva without a deal and world powers were quote unified on saturday when we presented a proposal to the iranians and iran could not take it at that particular moment and despite talks with iran the u.s. will stand up and defend the allies in the region against an external threat and kerry said that benjamin netanyahu needs to recognize that no agreement has been reached with iran and opposition to it is premature and we will talk to joseph, a senior writer at golf news and former analyst
5:02 am
of the ranked corporation and is live from beirut and why do you think john kerry is saying this now do you think? >> they have been repeating this statement for several weeks reensuring the allies that no deal will be made behind their backs but there is a deal under the works and not fulfilled yet because of certain conditions that are still to be worked out, technical issues regarding reprocessing plant at iraq and in other such items but at the end of the day i think secretary kerry is really scrambling to reassure arab allies that nothing will be made behind their backs and it's significant because relations between the united states and other countries are not optimum at this time. >> how different is this balancing act the u.s. secretary of state is doing and there is
5:03 am
this with iran over the deal and on the other hand he is in the region and trying to reassure our lives there and how different is this? >> we should not look at what is going on with iran in isolation with what else is going on in the arab world and it has been worked out in washington whereby the i ran issue is part of the east, west in you like accommodation between the united states and russia. there is a syrian conflict that is weighing a great deal and this appointment really with the fact that the united states has not really fulfilled the commitments that it has made to several issues through the arab world and it's what happened elsewhere, but the focus is on iran itself. but at the end of the day a deal will be in the interest of all
5:04 am
concerned if, in fact, a deal is worthy of the ink that will be put on the paper, not just to rush into some kind of agreement for the sake of having an agreement and cooler heads prevailed in the past few days to make sure that it's clarified before xhilts are made and the arab countries and saudi arabia took a different position from the united states and the goal of secretary kerry. >> in beirut and thank you for talking to al jazeera. now the u.n. nuclear watchdog is visiting iran and there seems to be some positive signs and we are in tehran for us now and just bring us up to date with the latest on this iaea visit. >> well, this visit and the developments moving very quickly as it seems and nobody expected any kind of agreement so early
5:05 am
today, the head of the iaea is of course in tehran and met with the iran counterpart, ahead of the nuclear program and reached an agreement, a framework agreement after years of negotiations to put to bed some issues surrounding iran's nuclear program and some concerns they have and iran agreed to allow iaea inspectors to inspect the iran heavy water facility, iraq is a facility and contains a plutonium and used for medical and research according to the iranians anyway. there is a lot of concern surrounding that facility and a lot of concerns surrounding the facility and ability for iran not to use what it produces there for civilian purposes but for military purposes as well and under construction and supposed to go on line in 2014
5:06 am
and that is next year. an agreement has been reached between iaea and iran finally after years of negotiations and about a decade of basically no movement to and fro so finally positive news regarding the nuclear program. >> reporter: what about the latest talks of the p 5 plus one and they say a deal is not far off with the iranians? >> well, that is right, that is what the french is saying, it's not that far away and not as negative and doom and gloom as it came out to be and france doesn't seem to be the party spoiler saying how the p 5 plus 1 were in agreement with this accord they presented to iran. but the iranians couldn't accept it at that time. of course john kerry in the region and the middle east again reassuring neighbors and arab countries and israel that no
5:07 am
deal with the iranians is better than a bad deal and not to worry at this point of course and those warnings for benjamin netanyahu about a little bit too early to be negative about any deal because there is no deal that has been reached but the french say a deal is coming quite soon they think at least. >> thank you. let's turn to the philippines and rescue workers are struggling to reach survivors of the typhoon haiyan, one of the worst on record and devastating cities and the lady providence was badly hit and damage to roads and airports is making it difficult for the much-needed relief to reach it and fears that 10,000 people could be dead or messing and hundreds of thousands have lost their homes and looting and soldiers are trying to restore order and wayne is there.
5:08 am
>> this building shows you what this caused, a large super market that collapsed in the strong winds and storm surge when it hit on friday and an example of desperation showed by the people who live here and looting going on now and a lot of food from the supermarket has been taken so people are now focusing on what they can get their hands on, picking through the remains of the super market trying to get their hands on whatever food and water that may remain in there. those are the essential items that people are telling us they really need and not getting quick enough from the government and military, that is food, water and shelter. if we come around here and you can see some of the desperate situations people are in and finding what they can to shelter in and people wanting to leave and taking advantage of the military flights and getting out. another big problem in the days
5:09 am
and weeks ahead is health. there are so many bodies still lying the streets around the city and some have a sheet with a name on them, slowly they are getting the bodies and taking them to a central location in the city, trying to identify them and once they have they are taking them to a grave for burial. >> reporter: typhoon haiyan tour through the philippines and this is the path before heading toward china and says damage in the southern philippines and three days later it's clear the devastation is greater, hundreds of thousands of people are believes to have been effected and without food, water and shelter and we will join wayne in one of the most effected areas and do we have a better picture of the sheer scale of the devastation? >> well, it's still very
5:10 am
difficult i would say because communication, as you mentioned, is still impossible with no phone signal and no electricity and access is difficult although the government has announced one of the key roads, one of the key highways has been reopened so they are hoping that that will help to create a clearer picture of the situation in some of those areas on the out skirts and also help to improve the delivery of aid into this city and it's desperately needed in that picture you saw before we traveled around the city and really on a couple of occasions we saw the military out there delivering food and water to people but it was not enough to go around even in those specific places they were in and sometimes there were angry scenes with residents shouting at the soldiers to give them some water but they had specific instructions that there was so much to go around. clearly there needs to be more.
5:11 am
we saw the first arrival of the u.s. military plane into here delivering more supplies and good news on that front. >> reporter: some of the areas are extremely remote and how are they getting aid to the places we have not really heard of yet? >> it's. difficult with military helicopters taking off during the day and stopped at nighttime because of electricity and not having enough lighting on the runway but they are taking aid after the areas and dropping them into those places. again, the communication is just impossible trying to find out exactly what is the situation out there and it's difficult trying to find out the situation here when dealing with local government officials and the military we understand is having problems dealing with the local government and trying to get in touch with them and entertain how many of them are still around, that is how desperate the situation has become here.
5:12 am
>> reporter: all right, wayne, thank you. let's get a wider picture on the storm and go to richard in the weather center. what is the latest with the storm? where is it going? >> well, darren that storm is moving away from the philippines and as we move this through it is through the south china sea and heading on northern neat nam and into southern parts of china and it is bright to darker color indicating losing the energy and the feed from the ocean. but a cloud heading toward the philippine and causing some concern as well and we will come back to that but it's worth reflecting the most powerful storm to hit anywhere globally since the second world war and after that we got satellite to pinpoint the force involved in some of the systems and as far as the philippines is concerned
5:13 am
it's the deadliest storm in history and the costliest with total economic damage of $14 billion u.s. the concern is the next tropical system coming in, it's a tropical depression and produce gusty winds and steady rain. we will see 100-150 millimeters of rain compared to 500 millimeters from haiyan and the main issue is it will hinder rescue because they will have low cloud base with it and stop flights taking place and relief efforts from going ahead and moving out towards thursday and haiyan is further north over parts of china where we have seen torrential rain. >> reporter: thank you, let's go to andrew thomas in southern china. andrew, as we are hearing that from richard an extremely powerful storm. what is happening where you are? >> well, as haiyan went across
5:14 am
the china sea it did weaken but not so weak it didn't cause damage at all and it hit after the philippines which is a chinese island of haiyan and had enough power to blow debris around and four people killed on the island and a boat missing with 7 people on board as well, still deadly even if it weakened significantly and carried to vietnam, the northern part, 600,000 people evacuated ahead of the coming storm and seems to have played off because five people have died as a result it looks like they died preparing for the storm in accidents rather than because of the storm itself. the remains of haiyan is crossing into southern china where i am and so the head of the moment. there is about 12 hours here of solid rain and the rain that is the issue here, about 200 millimeters expected 24-48 hour
5:15 am
period. the winds have dropped off, nothing like what you saw in the philippines and although the rain is a problem with flooding here you will not see anything like the destruction as in the philippines. this is now a serious tropical storm but it's going to become a tropical depression over the next 12 hours or so and weakening over time and causing issues with the water rather than with the wind. >> andrew in southern china and thank you. and more to come on the news hour including shelling continues in yemen despite a cease fight. and protest movements in thailand have joined forces against a proposed new law. and in sport barcelona wins in the league but at what cost? that story coming up, in a bit. ♪

now human rights watch is calling on international community to condemn the syrian government for using incindary weapons and some were going against civilians in areas and we have details from neighboring lebanon. >> reporter: august 26, 2010, aleppo, syria and victims and teachers at school and said a jet dropped a bomb. >> translator: all i saw was people on fire. i was on fire. my friends were on fire. and there were bodies on the floor. >> reporter: this was one of 56 attacks with insendiary weapons they documented in the last year and accuses the syrian airforce of using weapons in residential
5:17 am
areas. these weapons like nepalm and white phosphorus cause burns that are different to treat. >> i saw in syria in august it standalone in terms of the cruelty, the extent of the devastation, the severity of the injuries that i saw. >> reporter: human rights watch wants the international community to condemn syria like they did for the government's use of chemical weapons. >> the red line and bar is too high and set only on chemical weapons. implicitly saying that anything below that is not such a big problem. it is a big problem. we have documented abuse after abuse in syria. >> reporter: and incendiary is conventional and caused more death in syria than chemical
5:18 am
weapons which the government is to have believed to have used on august 21, that was a major turning point in the conflict and led to an international deal to get rid of syria's chemical weapons stockpile and has not stopped the war and criticize the deal and feel removing chemical weapons from the battlefield makes little difference and believe the international community in effect gave the syrian government permission to continue killing civilians. syria has not signed the protocol that bans the use of n incindiary weapons and said they violated international law, in beirut. >> reporter: men have been sentenced for a bomb attack that killed 37 people and injured 173. and rebel commander says he
5:19 am
ordered the bombing and convicted them were sentenced life in prison and a fourth given ten years. in u.n. highest court ruled in favor of cambodia after dispute of a land and the ownership with cambodia has turned violent in resent years, the decision of the international court of justice cannot be appealed. what is behind the long running and violent dispute? 11st century temple built on a hill top in the mountains and hotly contested territory and cambodia and tie tiland has fought for it for years and no mention of the land surrounding it and that is what is at the heart of the dispute and fueled on both sides of the border the disagreement over the site has led to violence on numerous occasions since 2008. we have reporters covering both
5:20 am
angles of the story and we will speak to robert who is on the cambodian side of the border and we will go to scott who is in thailand about 12 kilometers from the temple and as close as anyone can get other than the military that can get on the thai side of the border. how has the community been reacting to the international court's decision? >> i'm in a community center as you said 12 miles from the temple and there are people and dignitaries and towns people and the military and quite honestly we expected to be an audible and visual reaction when it was read but it was a complex verdict and translated from english into thai and could be lost in translation and no reaction if you will but it's trickling through because the way the thai official, government officials want to speak on national
5:21 am
television spoke after the verdict was read they are saying that in ten minutes time an official who was at the hague is going to interpret it for the thai people. we know that it favored cambodia, this ruling, but what is not clear is how much of the 4.6 disputed territory has given to cambodia and all thai soldiers and officials and members of forces have to be removed from the territory which they have done and stay out of the territory. what is not clear and that is what will happen in the coming minutes from thai officials on national television is how much territory they are losing or how much territory they are able to keep and people on pins and needles paying attention to what is said on television right now. >> reporter: on the thai side of the border and let's go to mcbride on the contact bowed jan side at the base of the hill where the temple sits. rob, so the court ruled in favor of cambodia. what has been the reaction
5:22 am
there? >> that is right. there doesn't seem to be ambiguity here and people take this as a cambodia victory and the sun has set behind me and people are watching in police posts live on television and the judgment as it came in and it was very complicated but at the end the ruling seemed to be clear to them that thai and police forces had to withdraw from the disputed piece of land, what everybody was hoping for and a small cheer at the police post just here on this part of the border and bigger cheers and people are celebrating this ruling here, maybe there will be something in the detail but certainly the overall ruling at least people are welcoming. we understand while this judgment was not read on the hill behind me here and a gesture of good will and the cambodia commander of forces
5:23 am
here and the thai counterpart were sitting jointly in the temple as this judgment was being readout and the ruling being delivered maybe is a sign for the two sides as a guaranty if you like there warrant be violence reaction to this. >> reporter: in cambodia and scott in thailand thank you both. well, another story they are keeping an eye on is debe bait in the senate and could see the return of someone lived in exile because he would be jailed if he returned and we report from bangkok. >> on bangkok streets, once again the commercial heart of thailand capitol is brought to a stand still. thousands of police are deployed across the city because of demonstrations across the
5:24 am
political spectrum and most went to parliament where they are voting on a controversial amnesty law on monday. this rally has been organized by the democrat party. members are opposed to the bill because it could have the brother return to the country but not to jail and he was deposed in a coup in 2006 and accused of corruption. >> translator: we are here to oppose the amnesty bill, it's wrong and made for criminals and we have to support the removal of the amnesty act. >> the proposal gives the opposition a boost and the cause to get people on the streets who want to remove the family from power. it's also divided the groups who support the group of power like the red shirts in the united front and democracy against
5:25 am
dictatorship. >> profound in the things that it makes, the coalition between the red shirts and udd and the government and we can see the crack within the group. >> reporter: so the government decided on its own to show strength with this rally and say it's 100,000 people strong with support for the amnesty bill. members of the ruling party recognize that it causes political damage and so much so that if it's rejected on monday they say they won't revive it. the amnesty bill is not expected to pass the senate, even so it turned politics to turmoil. >> we will check on the global weather, richard.
5:26 am
>> another tropical cyclone to tell you about but a completely order of magnitude to super typhoon haiyan. this one is on the horn of africa, specifically somalia and here is the spiral of cloud as it moves in off the arab sea and models look like they could be on the order of 100-125 millimeters of rain and like what we normally see and normally gets 5 millimeters during november and we could see double the rainfall in as little as 48 hours and something on that order and it will weaken moving in lands through tuesday and on into wednesday. but also i think parts of ethiopia will have the benefit of the rainfall too but in somalia with heavy rain it causes flooding and we need rain
5:27 am
for the crops so it's an an issue across the region and not so much for ethiopia and the rest of africa you see on the satellite big shower clouds you would expect across parts of uganda and the democratic republic of the congo and we would see rain over the next 24 hours or so and a fairly wet day in l i berville and conditions and lost the rain across the north and here it's dry and fine and sunshine and a good time to visit and the gulf at the moment weather conditions are looking fine and fair amount of sunshine expected. and around this area and further west it is largely fine and looking at plenty of sunshine and temperatures of 32. across much of mali we lost the rain and temperatures in the mid to upper 30s degrees celsius and the storm across the eastern areas will keep us occupied for
