that's the news hour live from london coming up. troops on the streets as zimbabwe's military takes power confining president mugabe to his home in harare. lebanese prime minister saad hariri is invited to france he is expected to arrive in the coming days with his family. mourning is my new tradition was killing an average of one hundred thirty yemeni children a day before saudi arabia blockaded the country's ports. scientists say classes in the french alps are heating up so fast they threaten to wipe out popular tourist resorts. and install of a when a shark this isn't to host the twenty two it is the rugby world cup the votes going france's way despise an official recommendation to south africa sixth place the event.
zimbabwe's military has confined president robert mugabe to his home after taking control of the country soldiers are patrolling the capital harare and heavy gunfire and explosions were heard earlier but the military denies it's a coup the takeover follows a bitter battle over who will succeed the ninety three year old president which split the ruling zanu p.f. party into two main factions but the cost groups support sacked vice president and then god while the younger g forty group backs mugabe's unpopular wife grace and time mcgarvey ali and i mean and has strong support among the armed forces it was his second last week in favor of grace which led to the military action reports from harare. parts of harare are now on lockdown and soldiers in army have blocked roads to government offices parliament and the courts people say they are
cautiously waiting to see what happens next many are relief so far there has been little violence i can see however moving as usual no more business. moving around freely. the country's war veterans say they have had enough of president robert mugabe many helped keep him in power for nearly forty years we. should have been recalled from is a row as the president insisted. the mob his army said on wednesday the president robert mugabe and his wife are safe in their private residence south africa's president jacob zuma said he was concerned about the situation in a phone call with zuma mugabe confirmed he was fine we would like to call for calm and restraint. particularly to the defense force and also to the two forces in zimbabwe i have also. conducted he said president mugabe.
whom i had time to to talk. and he is fine but confined in his home zuma plans to send a special envoy to the country. the crisis began on tuesday with reports of military vehicles rolling towards the capital good morning the army gave a statement on state television insisting the situation is not a military takeover we are only targeting criminals are only. committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice hours after issuing the statement the army again restated its position. the state run newspaper printed a special edition on wednesday are in it the army says president robert mugabe is still head of state and commander in chief. zimbabweans of only known one leader
since one thousand nine hundred eighty the mugabe family is an institution some people love the president and his wife grace mugabe are the say over the years the mugabe's have destroyed the economy this is uncharted territory for the country zimbabwe's military has said soldiers will only return to the barracks when all those accused of trying to destabilize and destroy the party from within have been arrested. al-jazeera. and smith looks at the political background that led to this military intervention. the stakes are just got higher in the battle for who will succeed zimbabwe's ninety three year old president last week robert mccarthy fired his deputy as he spoke his politically ambitious wife grace was by his side. president mccarthy said vice president emerson had started consulting witch doctors to find out when i was going to die the news was delivered to a crowd of supporters from the youth wing of the ruling party zanu p.f.
youth wing is loyal to mrs mcgarvie she's the most prominent face of a faction called g forty. with a man pushed aside was honing his political skills when grace mccarthy was still in high school. is nicknamed the crocodile his ability to survive he's closely aligned with the military and a veteran of the struggle against british rule that counts for a lot in zimbabwe grace mcgovern was probably learning very quickly but not fast enough you know she would lose her temper and she would be screaming at these people this goes back to twenty fourteen when joyce majeure who was vice president then was dumped and emerson and a guy were the guy who was dumped but is now back. was was was with that you know with grace so he's a very very fluid shifting fraction of fights going on the military intervention comes as a boy faces another economic crisis people sleep outside banks because there's
a chronic shortage of currency they want to be first in line for restricted access to their money and employment is estimated to between sixty and ninety percent this is created and an economic collapse because the last time that mugabe was really under threat was that towards the end of the one nine hundred ninety s. and then the so-called war veterans pushed him into a corner and he said well i need your support go and get twenty percent of the land and i'll go for that and you know that created an economic crisis as wrong. garbage has aged the struggle for his successor has intensified but all the while everyone has been careful to publicly show deference to a president who is held in high regard by most and barbarians. mcgarvie forty faction does not command the same respect now that the army has stepped in but faction may have gambled and lost bernard smith al-jazeera. over the years many zimbabweans have left their country because of political persecution and
economic factors many of them have found a new home in south africa tony page has been gauging the reaction to his back. this busy bus stop is the first for many zimbabweans arriving in south africa every day passes come and go to zimbabwe's made centers caring people and essential is in short supply via. the v.a. and as among the zimbabweans we spoke to who hope military intervention means she will one day go home permanently since the army took power. into now the president is now on from this it's. just a because it's now in the hands of africa trying to sell this to enforce a that i can feed my family i think what he's done up in the mouth is what it was it's not where means we have to be and we have tried to been called to my brother
by the way we already went because our country we don't enjoy to stay in our country and it's uncertain how many zimbabweans are in south africa as the statistics aren't reliable but in the last census one point seven million people were foreign nationals most likely to be zimbabwean here to work and for political reasons some of the zimbabweans here don't want to talk to us because this kid some opposition parties should leave the seclusion others simply because they're about to get on a bus to go home so that i want to be critical it's clear exactly what's happening . some say they feel pessimistic about any change leaving a potential new leader my only look after the interests of a few elites just coming out on others but most zimbabweans we spoke to agreed it isn't the military nor politicians who should be in control but people like them the voters we must. return to question that has been so that the
people of zimbabwe elected government of the our choice and everyone here is hoping the next text or call from home is good news tanya page out there at johannesburg. joining me from washington d.c. is river neighbor getty he's a former u.s. ambassador to the african union thank you very much indeed for taking time to join us just to put to you what developments happen in the last few minutes the head of the youth wing of zimbabwe's ruling party has publicly apologized on state television to the military which has seized power how significant is that apology well i think it's very significant in a number of ways first of all as we know that the youth wing has actually been very supportive of grace mugabe in the g. forty movement secondly it's significant that he felt the need to apologize to the military that has ceased power or least as a minimum has seized control of state organs of the spike the fact they claim that
president mugabe is still head of state third it's also significant that that he made those statements on state television. and not withstanding his claims that he made those statements really it does in my view suggest that this situation may be moving more towards consolidation of power behind whomever the military may back as opposed to return to some sort of politically negotiated settlement although it is still very early days yet and and on that point of who the military right back is it your impression that. is going to be the. well it's very clear that they don't back president given that he is essentially now under house arrest but it's also recognizable that they they understand that he still enjoys a fair amount of support amongst large members of the of the country clearly vice president. deep roots in deep support throughout the entirety of the security
apparatus of zimbabwe not only the military but also the c.e.o. of the central intelligence organization and i think that the crucial question to watch the next few days is whether or not the southern african development community or sat it as well as the a you could help negotiate some sort of return to a constitutional order that will allow zimbabweans to have a say in who the next leader is or whether or not we will see a more consolidation of power behind most likely ever some minutemen and god potentially with the support of the security forces and when you mention the regional element here what about what's your impression of what the regional players want as an outcome i mean aside from this of a deal something that's peaceful is it your impression that the old guard is actually easier for them to deal with than than than than an the new the political establishment. well in some ways if you take it face value again what president zuma said on behalf of sadek and also the statement from the chairperson
of the african union commission then one has to assume that what they want at a minimum is not as for this coup not to lead towards a permanent. settlement that is to say for their for the spoils of the coup not to be rewarded to submit to god or anybody else they are clear that these sorts of non constitutional changes of government are not to be tolerated not in southern africa not in africa as a whole but the fear of course is that there will be so much maneuvering inside zimbabwe that that the that sadeq in the african union will not hold fast to that principle and that you might see some sort of fig leaf to go she should that could lead to many gaga holding consolidating power and the ultimate question is whether or not and how hard the other countries in the region led by south africa as well as other. countries when backed by the african union will hold true to their principles in helping to return way to a democratic order former u.s.
ambassador to. thank you very much indeed it times. my pleasure thank you. coming up on the news hour. the u.n. says up to a million children in syria have been orphaned and at risk of being indoctrinated by armed groups. is a catastrophic flooding in iraq after cracks appear in a major damage caused by sunday's earthquake. in sport australia shoot for a place at the world cup in russia sometimes the. french president says he's invited the lebanese prime minister saad hariri and his family to spend a few days in paris so they'll travel there in the coming days he called it an act of friendship not an offer of political exile invited harry after speaking of saudi
arabia's crown prince harry announced his surprise resignation in riyadh last saturday on to criticism from iran and the lebanese group hezbollah or that the move had been made under duress earlier lebanon's president michel i would accuse saudi arabia of holding her really and his family hostage. but this is an act of aggression against lebanon this is a violation of the vienna convention in the bill of rights this isn't a resignation this is an aggression on our independence sovereignty and our dignity but actually butler has more from paris. the french president a man or mark karr has invited her riri and his family to paris for a few days now what is saying is that this is not an offer of political exile it is simply a friendly gesture now he says he's discussed this with the saudi crown prince and he has discussed it with hariri him self and an elisa a source tells us that hariri
is expected in france in the coming days i was interesting because it comes just a day after hariri sent out a tweet indicating that he was going to return to lebanon in the next few days but i'm unaware of calls made a very clear that he really should be able to return to lebanon whenever he wants to that he should be or have freedom of movement now what we've seen over the last few days is the french president really becoming involved in stepping up his efforts to try and deescalate this crisis to try and mediate the french foreign minister is in riyadh the lebanese foreign minister was in paris meeting on tuesday and then of course last week eman or michael paid that surprise visit to the saudi crown prince in riyadh and what marco was doing is really using france as a position a country that has pretty good relations with all sides to try and talk to all sides because mark also says it's essential to keep the dialogue open and there's no doubt that as a young and new president in france he is seizing this opportunity to make his mark on the international stage yemeni officials are denying reports that the sounded
coalition has allowed ships in to deliver much needed aid on monday saudi arabia said it will start reopening some yemeni ports and airport closed the martyr hoofy rebels fired a missile at riyadh last week and officials at her data port the main entry point for aid so it remains shut down and report. you can hear the wind blowing and the chirping of birds at this port and who died but what you don't hear much of is this. signs that shipments of critical supplies such as food and medicine are arriving in yemen saudi arabia sealed off all ports of entry almost two weeks ago as writer mark there are going to stop. the pork lost more than seventy percent of his operations poverty and starvation are now the headlines on the saudi led coalition has falsely claimed they have opened the port to aid vessels. saudi arabia says the blockade is intended to cut off
smugglers arming the rebels they've given assurances that they'll allow humanitarian aid to continue to flow yemenis say it's obvious shipments aren't arriving last five academy about twelve to thirteen thousand truckers are now out of work we know that the closure is meant by the coalition to bring the yemeni people to their means but yemeni people will never knew but to go out the u.n. is calling for a lifting of the blockade and warns yemen could suffer the worst fan mean in decades that would add to already widespread suffering two and a half years of war has only exacerbated poverty in what was already the poorest country in the middle east you know on a map and they are in a number that we are facing a real exhausting life conditions none of the government authorities are relief organizations are reaching out to us diseases us spending and the children are
getting sick we cannot afford to eat how can we afford to cheat them or buy medicine is a crisis aid agencies say they're desperate to address but can't natasha going to al-jazeera. save the children says almost four hundred thousand children in yemen are in desperate need of treatment for acute malnutrition but he says aid and she sees are struggling to reach them because of the funding shortfalls the cholera outbreak and obstructions by the warring parties even before saudi arabia blocked access to airports and ports around the country decimated that fifty thousand malnourished children under the age of five would die this year an average of one hundred thirty a day thais and her data governorates suffering the most with ten thousand children predicted to die this year in each region and our children have we could immune systems make them more likely to contract and die from diseases like cholera and pneumonia russia more as is the director of operations at save the children image
we spoke to her of our skype from sana earlier and she said the main port of her data as well as the airport must be reopened immediately well for the moment no aid supplies is getting and our humanitarian supplies are loving and they. are the import that opened two days ago but it's not enough it is not a place for data or. for to remain closed when i tell you our flies are not allowed in our hour there is no supplies in the country they sufficient to respond to the increasing needs. people need assistance immediately they need food they need treatment and children they need assistance they are unable to. sustain their health. in this dire situation and as a humanitarian we need to have the supplies delivered so the country and delivered to our health facilities to our treatment centers immediately as soon as possible
before it's too amazing and today we're talking about fifty thousand children estimated to die of malnutrition by the end of the year but if this blockade is not lifted immediately there will be more children dying and had to be very hard to contain this situation will have thirty five thousand yemenis have fled to djibouti since the war started two and a half years ago many of them are unwilling to stay in a camp in the north of the country due to poor conditions and harsh weather we haven't had a report. this is the most because they come for yemeni refugees in the dusty poor town of. it's a place many don't want to stay long. the sweltering heat and through some storms are driven most of the residents to town of the capital djibouti about two hundred kilometers away those who are chosen to stay say.
difficult which is to flee certain death in yemen only to face us law and here we have nothing with just six kilograms of fry sperm month it's far from enough. at one point this camp was home to six thousand refugees many of them have left to rent accommodation they that in all the town or in the capital djibouti yet others have retired to yemen prefunding the us something told the war zone to life in this country. they ignored warnings from the un refugee agency the un that the security situation is still. yet the must have his security and shut it off some basic supplies in yemen is forcing many more refugees to cross the sea. said to her son another three children have just arrived at the moment because they come from the city of ties which is under the control of the fight. now.
there are no electricity or water in a city we had no source of livelihood and there are diseases we live in fear for our lives every single day. others say they're fleeing forced crippling of young men by who fighters. those how do i but the mark because it comes up just days ago we're going to hear that. these were forcing us to join their militias and wanted to use us in their fighting they were telling us to join the forces of god we had no option but to flee here. nearly thirty five thousand people have made the journey southwards across the street to since march two thousand and fifteen. djibouti has opened its doors to yemeni refugees but there's only so much it can do the country husband for did from foreign investment in recent years due to its strategic location but the extreme poverty is still widespread. now much because
they come to host some one thousand two hundred refugees it's a number that's expected to grow as the conflict in yemen shows more signs of mohammed at all does it or djibouti. israel has blown up the family home of a palestinian who killed three israelis. and the army says the demolition in the occupied west bank village of beit zurich went ahead without incident. i was shot dead in september after killing three israelis outside a settlement israel regularly demolishes the homes of palestinians it claims of carrying out attacks under there continues to demand the release of its journalist mahmoud hussein who's been in an egyptian prison so as to send the twentieth hussein is accused of book ousting false news to spread chaos which he and al-jazeera strongly deny has repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail saying

made and it's vital that this conference sends a clear signal that paris is only a start. scientists are warning that glass is in the french alps are heating so fast they could soon threaten popular tourist villages they say it's clear that climate change is the course gradation joined an expedition to move along to see for himself. the french alps mystical mesmerizing and moody every day thousands of hikers extreme sports people and alpinist make their way to these mountains to conquer their peaks but the alps a changing the glaciers that used to sweep down to the valleys below and melting in some places they have anything. by scientists at the forefront of measuring and monitoring these glaciers it's important and dangerous work their office for today is glassy a ditto three thousand five hundred meters high on the north face of mont blanc we tried to set up. our instrument in order to make topographic measurements of
this glacier these scientists also measure the temperature of the glazier what they are finding is astounding the base of the glacier need the bedrock is that minus two degrees in the first with the climate warming and with the ice damper rising glacier could become damper it at the melting point the work these scientists are doing on this mountain and grace is like takamine is important not just to understand how much more this glacier will heat up but because it has a bearing on towns like chamonix down here which is one of the most recognized extreme sports centers in the world if this glacier heats up. it could threaten villages like chamonix as we filmed the glacier begin to break away not once but three times within an hour further evidence of the danger it presents almost
