calls it the largest humanitarian crisis in the world of its twenty five million people twenty million rely on humanitarian assistance i think it's very clear that he maybe wants to but one of his family members and power to share power with the current legitimate government so i think maybe it seems to me that they might be a collaboration between regional powers. and maybe the legitimate government to somehow overthrow the houthi is first and then have a sort of a serious political talk the saudi led coalition imposed a blockade on all of yemen's ports and last month the missile that may have targeted riyadh as a result seventy eight million yemenis are on the brink of famine the country is also suffering from a cholera epidemic which aid workers predict could hit one million sufferers by the end of the year now the conflict between supporters and hoofy forces could mean

6:14 am
at least sixty percent of them are children and aid agencies having to focus on the delivery of vital humanitarian assistance at this stage so the trafficking situation is getting worse. with so many vulnerable people coming into a small area in such a short space of time. it's definite almost stunned it's increased there's been recruiters here in this bizarre bunker that's previous to this influx and we know that they're getting more business and that new criminal networks have sort of kicked into action we have to start addressing us and we have to do it now urgently after twelve days the man who bought culture returned to the two women who sold her they left her in the refugee camp where she now lives with a woman who found her alone in the froid. it's all stuff that al-jazeera culture is bizarre and with the. break here knowledge is there out when we come back the

michael things actions were lawful flynn's pleaded guilty to making false statements about his contacts with russia. former president ali abdullah saleh has called for a joint ceasefire between his supporters to the rebels and the saudi led coalition at least forty people have died in battles between forces loyal to saddam on the hoof is in the capital sana. and pope francis has defended his silence in myanmar over the plight of ranger refugees saying he spoke the truth in private he's been facing criticism for not directly addressing the crisis pontiff says public and on c.h. and would have prevented his message from being. now as you mentioned earlier while president trump is feeling the heat of the russian probe he's managed to achieve his first big legislative victory the u.s. senate narrowly approved the biggest tax overhaul since the one nine hundred eighty s. the bill slashes taxes for corporations but democrats complained it only benefits the wealthy and big business is time argument after last minute changes to appease some
6:19 am
holdouts the tax bill passed by the narrowest of margins the yeas are fifty one and the nays are forty nine. all republicans with one exception voted for the bill which their leader hailed as a tonic for the u.s. economy we have an opportunity now to make america more competitive and to keep jobs from being shipped offshore and provide substantial relief to the middle class but democrats called it a bonanza for multinational corporations and the ultra rich while adding more than a trillion dollars to the u.s. debt there is a trail of broken promise broken promise to working families. to pass this bill and the american people understand this is the music fired up of continuing attacks on medicare and medicaid and social security. most economists have been skeptical that the tax cuts will generate enough growth to
6:20 am
make up for the loss in government revenue as the republicans have promised public opinion polls show that voters largely oppose the bill based on doubt it will amount to a net gain for most households but its passage would be the biggest republican legislative achievement since donald trump became president we got no democrat help but i think that's going to cost him very big in the election because basically they voted against tax cuts and i don't think politically it's good to vote against tax cuts the senate and house which already passed its own versions of tax cuts must still agree on bridging the differences but trump said he looked forward to signing a final bill before christmas tom ackerman al-jazeera washington egyptian presidential hopeful ahmed shafik has reportedly arrived in a colorado after being arrested and deported from the united arab emirates if he had been based in the u.a.e. since losing to the muslim brotherhood candidate mohamed morsi in egypt's twenty

twelve presidential election the former prime minister and air force commander announced last week he plans to run for president in twenty eighteen incumbent president sisi is widely expected to seek another term less a ha as ease an associate professor of law what a and m. university she says it's likely there's some truth to shift claims of being bought from leading the un. he clearly has been deported and presumably the reason why he was deported was in retaliation for his claiming that he was barred from departing the u.a.e. for france and a european trip or he was going to be campaigning among the egyptian diaz for there and then presumably heading to egypt so i don't think that he would take such a big political risk of insulting his hosts for over five years who effectively gave him refuge while he was facing criminal charges in egypt that he would do something like that publicly on a if at least it was there was some truth to it so i think he probably was kept but
6:22 am
now he's going to pay a higher price and now i think he is going to face serious problems in egypt where we don't know if he's going to be detained and i don't think there's any knowledge right now of where he has been sent to in egypt i think fish if he is a formidable contender and the presidential elections primarily because he has legitimacy as a former general and because he represents the barak era and six years now after the so-called revolution of two thousand and eleven there is a significant number of egyptians who reminisce for the mubarak era and they would like that era to come back and that's what he represents and presumably there are people in the military and other parts of the security apparatus who have signaled to him that they would support him if he announced his candidacy a nighttime curfew is in place in honduras following days of protests security

forces have been given extra powers to stop the violence that's followed last sunday's presidential election one person's died dozens more injured after six days a clear winner is yet to emerge from the first run your opponent has more from the capital to do so got the. the night hours have closed in the city of they were we are now in a nationwide curfew and things have quieted down especially compared to just yesterday when riots broke out and demonstrators clashed with security forces a wave of looting and violence has really swept the country amidst this political crisis and the response from military police has been the use of tear gas and rubber bullets and people here are still very anxiously awaiting a decision by the national elections committee it's been over a week since the general elections and still no decision now in response to this violence one hundred military isn't forcing a nationwide curfew a strict six p.m. curfew that restricts some constitutional rights for honduran citizens but it also
6:24 am
means that anyone out past six o'clock is subject to arrest now the concern here remains that the longer the elections commission stalls on this decision the higher the chance that violence could spark up again. venezuela's government says it's close to reaching a deal with the country's opposition the two sides of and holding talks about the economic and political crisis that's gripped venezuela for almost a year the meetings in the dominican republic are the first negotiations and anti-government protests ended in july. apart from being difficult i should say that we are close to reaching an agreement we will return on december the fifteenth to seek to lay the foundations for a definite of political economic social and cultural agreement we are deeply satisfied we want to thank all those who made these pros has possible several police officers and a protester have been injured during a rally against the far right alternative for germany party the anti migrant and

islam group is electing its new leadership the f.d.a. took votes away from the german chancellor angela merkel's alliance and september's election merkel has still not been able to form a government as more from one of them. as the day began police fired water cannons at protesters trying to block the streets at least one protester and several police were injured thousands tried to stop delegates from attending the first conference of the far right party since it won more than ninety seats in the german election. and. there is a fight in germany against. because you know what. right opinions. are. not good inside the dispute was not with the leftist protesters but within the party itself a leadership battle between extreme nationalists and
6:26 am
a more moderate of the f.t. was locked in a stalemate forcing parliamentary leader alexander galland to step in and share power with current party head voice than. i think we can work together very well i didn't intend to do this you know that i didn't want to. but a situation came up which was i don't want to say i love strictly for the party which was dangerous the question now is whether the party can contain ideological differences and appeal to the wider electorate all of this matters because chancellor angela merkel is running out of options to form a coalition government if germany is forced to go back to the polls they could be strengthened but if she forms a central coalition the social democrats are expected the f.t. will become the biggest opposition voice in holland for germany this has consequences for a political rhetoric for the way we debate in public and for the way for the tone
6:27 am
that i face sets and social media especially once the bastion of stability in europe it's now a messy time in german politics and like callen al-jazeera. the arab league is warning that any u.s. move to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital would feel violence there are reports president donald trump could announce a policy change on wednesday but as in just reports the white house insists the final decision hasn't been made the diplomatic status of jerusalem is one of the world's most contested issues israel calls the city its undivided capital and operates its government from there while palestinians claim east jerusalem which israel occupied after the one nine hundred sixty seven war as the rightful capital of their future state despite the unresolved status of the city which is important to muslims christians and jews u.s. president donald trump is reportedly considering recognizing jerusalem as the
6:28 am
capital of israel in the coming days a major potential shift in policy sharply criticized by palestinian leaders. this is a very big issue touching touching the al aqsa mosque touching the church and the whole is playing with fire has no meaning for a palestinian state that east jerusalem as its capital recognizing jerusalem as the capital of israel could also see the u.s. embassy moved there from tel aviv while campaigning then candidate promised to move a diplomatic mission as one of his first acts as president but in june the white house issued a waiver to meet a deadline to either comply with the nine hundred ninety five law mandating the move of the u.s. embassy to jerusalem or explain why doing so is not in u.s. national security interests signing the waiver which presidents clinton bush and obama signed every six months as a matter of course angered president trumps evangelical christian supporters and
6:29 am
pro israel donors were reportedly pressuring him to declare next week's waiver to be his last while others are said to have also warned moving the embassy could not only strain ties with arab allies but could lead to violence and that's the big question will he go all the way or will he leave that legal loophole open i think because he would he would go that way and that would in a way placate his you know very pro israeli facts including his vice president is very religiously you know motivated by this. and also still leave open some door negotiation etc with the palestinians and others while it's still unclear what president trump will announce next week any decisions could complicate efforts by his administration to revive negotiations between palestinian and israeli leaders kirshner son in law and senior advisor has made several trips to the region as part of efforts to start the talks talks which look more distance
