12:00 am
meanwhile france's foreign minister is rejecting another delay of bragg's it and says the u.k. needs to show the way forward. with how things are now it's still no to pushing back to break that deadline in the u.k. he says they want to push forward alternatives to avoid a no deal but we haven't received anything so we'd still know we're not going to start over every 3 months it's up to the u.k. to show us the way forward paul brennan has more from london this is a significant resignation and one that will bruise boris johnson you would have thought perhaps he couldn't be more bruised after the torrid week that he's had losing votes in parliament and finding himself painted into a corner as far as his breakfast strategy goes on able to call a snap general election for example but under rudd is a senior and respected member of the conservative party and it's significant for 2 reasons 1st of all the timing of it choosing saturday evening to make her announcement and that meant that she was able to do a tour of busy the sunday morning political t.v. shows here in the u.k.
12:01 am
and 2nd of all because the language of the chief used in her resignation letter and in those subsequent interviews that she's given i mean she said that the expulsion of the 21 conservative m.p.'s who were thrown out of the party by boris johnson for voting against him she described that as an assault on decency and democracy very strong words and she also flatly contradicted the government's stated position as far as negotiations with the european union force johnson has said that he is strongly pursuing a deal with the european union or rudd says that's simply not the case from her insiders you know she said that she saw no negotiations only conversations and she said that she no longer believes that leaving with a deal with a deal is the government's main objective 90 percent of the government's time she said was being put into preparing for no deal she said that that seemed to be the main strategy of the government and for those 2 reasons her resignation is deep in significant. a day of protest that started peacefully in central hong kong has
12:02 am
ended in more chaos than a state has set barricades on fire blocked major roads and vandalized a metro station at thousands marched peacefully to the u.s. consulate there calling on congress to pass human rights legislation allowing sanctions to be imposed on hong kong leader is debian gopalan has this update from hong kong. this is one of hong kong's me shopping districts usually a very busy place on a sunday night and as you can see it's been brought to a standstill with white police over you're blocking the road they chase the protesters here from the financial district and try to disperse them using tear gas among the shoppers and the crowds on a sunday night long long ago we saw people running with small children without any protection away from the tear gas so instead now just protesters here confronting the police will be are seeing as regular shoppers and regular people trying to
12:03 am
confront the police off them why they're using such excessive force when there are people who have nothing to do with the protests this has been a constant refrain and this has been the next step in the protests that we are seeing where people once police accountability for their actions this is in stark contrast to the protests we saw earlier today when thousands of people marched to the u.s. embassy calling on the u.s. to push through a bill that would give them greater powers to safeguard hong kong the tanami but to go ahead in the news hour including how conflict is affecting children will be live in new york as the united nations sends a message to was leader is. the truce in what's called the wild west of nigeria government leaders say it's time to end the killings and the kidnappings and habeeb continues to go on beaten up to his latest bugs we'll hear from him in sports with me yet.
12:04 am
syrian government has condemned joint u.s. turkish patrols in northwest syria as a flagrant violation of its sovereignty armed vehicles crossed the turkish border on sunday into an area that used to be controlled by u.s. backed kurdish forces the u.s. and turkey want to establish a safe zone in the area turkey's boosting its military presence along its border with syria and it's pushing displaced syrians to return home let's bring in joel makower own he's a middle east analyst at the arab center in washington d.c. we appreciate your time sir thank you very much there is opposition to this obviously from syria but there also appears to be as far as i can see opposition by turkey's president richard tie a bow to one because he has been disagreeing with the u.s. about the conditions in details of this safe zone is it actually in practical terms going to happen. it's going to happen but certain prefix is not
12:05 am
a long term fix of this problem the us straight to mediate the. world's 2 enemies all across the border to learn is hoping that he's in his meeting with trump in a few weeks that the u.n. can help solve some of the issues he is is pushing which have a longer saves or a deeper around 3040 kilometers of the u.s. offering only 5 this point and also who controls this area turkish sides wanted to be on the turkish troops control the us prefer rather to have american troops french and british to have more 3rd party control so those issues are still pending between both sides but at the end of the days just to manage a very complex relations not the long term solutions not the way forward to have stability of the country or in the northern part of syria if i understand it correctly there are still kurdish y.p. g. forces in this area of course turkey regards dan as terrorists but they are allies
12:06 am
of the us and have been in the fight against i saw how great is the risk do you think that there is going to be some sort of direct conflict between turkish forces and the kurdish y p g whilst the us forces are there. there's always a risk because there's still mediation between both sides are still in a and because somehow this all with this risk but now there is this a gauge meant. the good the sure. forces decided to pull back a little bit especially their heavy weapons their main militant militant they backed away from this area in the past few days to pave the way for the state to start but the other then you had the men bish. mother for example where they miss to see a lot of confrontation between both sides so now the stakes are higher because especially the u.s. they want at some point to be able to be used to their force of from this area but
12:07 am
no they became more involved in managing those 2 but that is always there but i think for no it's i don't see any risk of confrontation but we have to watch the coming weeks what would happen the president out of one has also made the point that he wants this safe zone to be at least used in part as a safe haven if you like for refugees from syria rather than moving them into turkey or indeed moving them back from turkey into the safe zone prior to moving back into their homes in syria but again given the confusion that you've been explaining to us do you think that that is actually likely going to happen and is it in fact going to be a safe place for refugees. i mean it's not clear at this point i'm not sure the land is obviously under a domestic pressure to deal with a serious issue especially in stumble after the last month for election but i'm not sure if this part would be a help especially if it was only 5 kilometers if you're going to bring. the rope
12:08 am
from will change the demographics this would bring a lot of. conflicting interest on the ground they might have with this will put a proxy war somehow between the pro. fighters and the brutal fighters we don't know yet if it's 5 kilometers or more will enough be the border for them because the agreement in the us mind was to have a is war which is without civilians without even without fighters just of the significant part of on the border so i'm not sure if this would be done way out of the sea refugee issues he might have to find other solutions or other for other parts of the border good to get your views in this job thank you very much indeed for your time the head of the united nations nuclear watchdog has met iranian officials a day after attack iran further scaled down its commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal so iran announced on saturday that it could now increase your
12:09 am
a name enrichment levels beyond 20 percent but it doesn't have plans to do so yet iranian foreign minister has told the i.a.e.a. that its actions are allowed under the deal france's urged iran not to downgrade its commitments saying the channels for dialogue are still open door says about it as the latest from tehran. this was a prescheduled meeting between the acting head of the international atomic energy agency and iranian officials as part of their ongoing cooperation officials from the nuclear watchdog come to teheran on a regular basis but this visit comes at a time when the future of the 2015 nuclear deal is very uncertain iran continues to reduce its commitments as it announced on saturday how they will move forward with advancing their nuclear program and that they will no longer it here to the limitations that have been set under the j c p a way ali akbar salehi the head of iran's atomic energy organization says iran will
12:10 am
not stay in this deal as long as it's a one way road if. the e.u. was supposed to cover the absence of the united states and they couldn't do it in a way that promised and the woos thing is we've heard from the spokesman of the e.u. saying they remain committed to the jail. as long as a run i'm surprised is committed to was committed to not being committed to the deal breaking promises or now for rita has also been meeting with iranian foreign minister mohammad javad zarif and the secretary of iran's supreme national security council connie this is being viewed as a critical point in the future of the relationship between iran and the remaining european signatories of the nuclear deal that's france germany and britain the iranian president hassan rouhani has issued yet another 60 days for the europeans to try and salvage this deal iran says the oil from its tanker that was released by gibraltar 3 and a half weeks ago has been sold every day and state television said the
12:11 am
$130000000.00 worth of oil has gone to its destination united states says this satellite image proves that the destination was syria iran had promised that the edge and audio one supertanker formally the grace one would not go to syria. fighting in libya has killed at least 14 people warlord khalifa haftar as forces battle of the soldiers from the un recognized government of national accord to help those forces died along with 6 soldiers in subideas west of tripoli at least a 1000 libyans have been killed for the soft almost an offensive to capture the capital 5 months ago. thousands of islanders in the bahamas and abandoning their homes destroyed by how they can dorian the strongest storm ever recorded there is known to have killed 43 people that total is likely to climb significantly as recovery crews which more remote and devastated islands now go up on over points from 3 ports the main city on grand bahama island.
12:12 am
floodwaters have finally receded on the island of grand bahama. for residents of this part of the country this means coming to terms with the devastation left over from hurricane dorian on the eastern end of the island more than 80 percent of homes were destroyed. this high school near free ports tourist district has been transformed into a shelter for the displaced many here have lost everything to the hurricane even their loved ones i thought i lost my has no end. to it decided to stay back phone. from what i have say and heard everything completely gone so. you know is this because you know. they're all going to die you know know any player they have but. about 80 people are staying at this shelter freeport remains without electricity and the heat is almost
12:13 am
unbearable but there is food and water and doctors on site to provide medical attention to anyone who needs it by i really thank god for life right now and i thank god for the u.s. coast guards and participated you guys and i you know bringing us food and clothes and water and stuff. the search operations continue for hundreds of people still missing but the destruction from the storm is so widespread that even with the assistance of the united states coast guard and border patrol there are still places in the country that rescue teams have yet to reach. one of the biggest challenges in delivering disaster relief to survivors of hurricane dorian has been limited access to the areas worst hit by the storm only up until a few days ago this airplane for example along with freeport airport were sitting under at least 2 meters of flood waters. it's been several days since the storm passed many of the people we've met seem to still be in shock but nonetheless
12:14 am
grateful to be alive when orthopod is joining us live from the bahamian capital nussle extraordinary pictures as always in the new report their man well but one of the things that continues to strike me is the scale of the problem because the bahamas of course is not just a just one or 2 islands we're talking about a smattering of violence across the sea it must be very difficult to get aid to all of those areas. that's absolutely right that continues to be the challenge here in the bahamas not only in the island of gravel hama where we were yesterday in freeport where we filed that report that you just watched but specifically the island of abaco arguably the place that was worst hit the community of marsh harbor we're talking about upwards of 80 percent of all homes are completely destroyed what we're hearing from the world food program the world health organization is that is that there are 70000 people in need of food and in need of shelter we've
12:15 am
been we've known since the storm 1st passage which again we should mention the scale of this devastation it took 36 hours for this hurricane to make it across the island of abaco and across you know into grand bahama this is a category 5 storm wind gusts upwards of 350 kilometers per hour some of what we're talking about destruction that's a that's almost the equivalent of a tornado touching down every minute for 36 hours it's unbelievable the scale of the devastation even when we were driving through marsh harbor you could smell you could smell the death in the air there are places of of the bahamas as you as you mentioned a smattering of islands there there are places where rescue teams haven't arrived yet so while we continue to hear now for the 2nd day in a row this official death toll of 43 people the actual number is expected to be dramatically higher everyone that we spoke to in freeport yesterday just about told us that they knew at least one person that was still missing just about everyone we
12:16 am
spoke to had someone in their family that had passed away so there is there is a sense of the scale of this of this devastation as has yet to really be determined at the moment the biggest concern is the shortages of food water and medicine but now that the infrastructure is being rehabilitated we're talking about roadways runways and and access to helicopters is now being rehabilitated there are rescue teams there is disaster relief arriving to these communities that are worst hit but but for thousands of people. we have nowhere to go and here in nassau there are staging areas by international organizations of the national government for for the displaced but the sense that we're getting and the reports that we're hearing here on the ground is that there just isn't enough for everybody that's been that's suffering from the from the wake of this hurricane thanks mama still ahead on al-jazeera warnings of election interference as the u.s. gears up for the 2020 presidential race. designing the modern world wait to get

a look at the impact of the bad school 100 years on and a new air race world champions being frontally is going to have the details this sport. hello once again right has been reported in southern pakistan but cloud confirms it is a little bit late in the season than the monsoon should be withdrawing but is techies talk about it however we have got a change of season in europe and beyond europe to the stands this weakness in the sky this line of showers runs from armenia all the way to tajikistan through turkmenistan and that's where you'll see rain 40 but south of that you will not see it but you will see that northerly breeze which is slowly bringing the temperatures down not everywhere but terence down to 28 back that to 40 and with the same hint
12:18 am
of a northerly in the east and met by a ruse down to about 29 not a huge change mostly but the wind is strengthening and that northerly is blowing down the gulf is not particularly dusty at the moment no has it dropped humidity very much is still on the cusp of being unpleasant in bahrain and qatar as examples but they made these really high and that's where it should be in some dollar with the hollies still blowing probably enhanced again by the time we get to choose day which means cloud drizzle and greenness around so hala a record breaking high temperature in cape town yesterday parts of the 5 degrees back down to at or below normal not in the sunshine but there is rain further east just touching southern mozambique. if you were in beijing looking out the pacific ocean you'd see american warships
12:19 am
one mess somehow time is aiming to replace america and around the world well the chinese are not that stupid things guys want to dominate a huge chunk of the planet this sounds like a preparation for our 1st president george washington said if you want peace prepare for war the coming war on china talked one on a just blowing up in the united states i learned that the 1st amendment is really key to being a good thing freedom of the challenge is going to be something many lend to the resources that are available but it's an al-jazeera story to me is that we just don't tell you what the subject of the story wants to know the government is not going to do the one thing the demonstrators want apologize for that's what al jazeera does we ask the questions so that we can get closer to the truth.
12:20 am
you're watching all of us here on the mind of our top stories this hour the u.s. secretary of state says talks with the taliban are dead for the time being and the special envoy to afghanistan is being recalled taliban representative said the cancellation of talks will harm the u.s. more than anyone. in the british government is insisting it will exit the european union by a top of the 31st despite multiple setbacks in parliament and the resignation of a senior ok. but it minister meanwhile france says it doesn't want another brags a delay and says the u.k. needs to show the way forward. protesters have blocked a major road in hong kong central district and vandalized a metro station thousands marched peacefully to the u.s.
12:21 am
consulate there calling on congress to pass legislation which allows sanctions to be imposed on leaders. let's go to new york where thousands of school backpacks are being laid outside the united nations after the worst year on record for children caught up in conflict the u.n. says 2800 so the highest number of children killed or maimed since they began monitoring a new exhibition shows backpacks laid in rows similar to a graveyard each one representing the loss of a young life to conflict well across the 20 conflict zones monitored last year the un found more than 12000 children were killed or injured afghanistan had the worst record with 3062 children killed 1854 deaths were recorded in syria 2018 was also the worst year for children being used in combat particularly in somalia syria and nigeria $7000.00 fold on funny lines around the world
12:22 am
these conflicts are putting the education of millions of children at risk mali is the most serious example more than 800 schools were closed last year leaving 244000 children with no education diplomatic editor james bass's live with us from the united nations in new york james it looks from what i can see behind you a very sobering image but one questions of course what the impact is going to be on the members of the united nations. well absolutely and that's i think is what the un's children agency unicef is hoping that this will have a big backpack will have a big impact because these backpacks 3758 of them represent children children who died and these are just the confirmed deaths they believe there are many more deaths in 2018 they hope that people will take notice world leaders coming here for the u.n.
12:23 am
general assembly in just a couple of weeks will take notice with christopher de bono from unicef christopher a very haunting image it is a haunting image and we want people to be haunted by it but also inspired by it in the 30 years since the convention on the rights of the child came into effect there's been massive improvements for 2 over and around severe acute malnutrition around polio and that's because people have stood up and taken action what we want these backpacks to do is to inspire people to take action because even though the figure $3758.00 is the highest figure of children killed in conflict since we started taking data collecting data we think it can change and if world leaders if people all around the world seeing these backpacks i had to think about the situation of children and to take the responsibility that they have to put children at the center of every action they do it will change and next year these backpacks
12:24 am
will be being carried by children to school which is where what they're intended for that's what the purposes isn't the problem though you mention the convention 30 years ago you could go much further back the geneva conventions there are rules of war and countries and parties to conflicts seem to be ignoring. that's certainly the case in some situations obviously the attacks on education institutions the attacks on health facilities they're still occurring and still occurring in appalling numbers but they've got to stop they have to there's no there's no doubt this is our future laid out here each one of these backpacks should in the next 2 weeks beyond route to a school somewhere it represents lost hope it represents lost lives and and and we can't afford that humanity conflict that we have to do something the timing of this i assume is quite deliberate because in 2 weeks' time here in this complex they'll be leaders from all around the world yes world leaders will be gathered here and we know that they can take action that can help change the situation of children
12:25 am
christopher de bono from unicef thank you very much for joining us here on al-jazeera really haunting image all of these backpacks of course killing civilians is a war crime so many of these are not just deaths of children's they are criminal actions taken in conflict zones around the world rob james thanks very much indeed. russia's president vladimir putin has voted in a contentious regional election in moscow opposition and independent candidates are banned from the ballot in the capital that's provoking months of some of the largest protests seen for years hundreds of protesters were arrested many have been beaten up by white police and some have been jailed vasant has more on this from moscow. it's interesting to see that these elections which normally are considered an important have attracted so much attention and that comes all of course because it has led to a lot of protests a lot of protests that haven't been in russia for quite
12:26 am
a lot of years it has created a new kind of protest movement but also a lot of young people joining in and also the crackdown by the government of these protests has put this election on the international agenda i can say a lot of media from all over the world have come to actually cover it we just followed the opposition leader was not allowed to run herself and she was followed by dozens of cameras showing that this vote for only 45 members of the most has significance for the rest of the country as well they have also now called instead of boycotting these elections because the opposition candidates are not allowed to run they have now called to still come to the polling stations and vote for anyone except for united russia the ruling party of president vladimir putin in a way to show that your position is strong stronger than the government has always sat the result will be that it will be more difficult for president clinton to
12:27 am
continue after his last term which is now happening right now so the question now of course is will this be successful this strategy because there are opposing voices the opposition is divided on this particular strategy which is called smart voting and we will see later what the outcome is going to be. one of the strongest typhoon to hit the korean peninsula in decades has killed people on both sides of the border typhoon ling-ling killed 5 people in north korea and destroyed homes and crops the north's leader kim jong un reportedly scolded officials for being helpless and unaware of saturday's storm south of the border 3 people were killed and many have been left without electricity in northwest nigeria and the government is hoping a truce will permanently end killings and kidnappings mainly by nomadic cattle herders government leaders say they want to tackle the injustices that fuel the crisis and it just reports from some fodder. for the past 2 months not

and are trying to rebuild their lives for 8 years bandits mainly from the mighty kurtzman terrorized inside entire villages in northwest nigeria local regime to protect communities became the law. the resulting violence killed more than 4000 people and displaced tens of thousands. the state government says it's moving to address what the norm what's called decades of exploitation and oppression by providing water roads and other services it's also disbanding the militias that have been accused of killing full arnie's and denying them access to basic services the truth is holding for now a few months ago driving along this highway would have been extremely dangerous even for the security forces but now a decent number of vehicles used their old killings and abductions used to happen here almost every day so for most people the relative peace they now enjoy seems
12:30 am
and feel is almost unreal. and it's not only the displaced who are happy with the turn of events in some of. the police who have been targeted in the mayhem say they realize that the force of arms cannot end the violence all along. a military or security actions mr. thousands of what does not a simple official. the comforter to their grandest sign it came with an idea of having it will result in this issue that is yours in that. and that has started paying off several assault rifles and rocket launchers suffered surrounded by the gunman and soon the police a 100 i expected. they say there never was a will to resolve the conflict and some for a state until recently. got a full court order to then. they have another idea so i have to leave.

12:33 am
iran is now threatening the next u.s. election the russians are absolutely intent on trying to interfere with our elections making matters worse the federal election commission or f.e.c. that preserves the integrity of u.s. voting has stopped fully functioning that's because last month the commission's vice chair resigned the 6 member agency is now down to just 3 members it needs 4 to operate. the f.t.c. is considered one of the frontline agencies combating election interference it was working to bolster transparency for online political ads the same ads used by russian operatives to manipulate voters on social media in 2016 there was no collusion whatsoever a justice department investigation found kremlin linked associates contacted the campaign of donald trump in 2016 even though authorities determined none of it was
12:34 am
illegal we know different state actors and non-state actors could be trying some of the same things that were tried in 2016 or expanding that playbook to more ways the f.e.c. also investigates campaign finance violations and fines campaigns not following the law when it comes to so-called dark or secret money. donations from potentially illegal sources but without a quorum the f.e.c. can't do its job we're dealing with a situation where the money is pouring into the election more money than ever is coming into the presidential election in the congressional elections but right now there's no one that coring over that to make sure that the rules are being followed the influence of dark money on the 2020 us presidential election is expected to exceed 1000000000 dollars and it's not clear when the f.e.c. will be fully staffed to investigate that spending that means that money attacking

12:50 am
have been the ongoing in qatar for nearly a year. and it was the case that when the taliban tried to gain negotiating advantage by conducting terror attacks inside of the country president from made the right decision to say that's not going to work we're going to walk away from a deal if others try to use violence to achieve better ends in a negotiation it's not right it's not appropriate killed american and it made no sense for the taliban to be rewarded for that kind of bad behavior when the taliban released a statement in response saying americans will suffer more than anyone else because of tom's decision to cancel the talks by the office of afghan president musharraf's gun and he says peace will only be possible if the taliban stop launching attacks and hold direct talks with the government we expected an outcome that could lead us to a ceasefire that could lead us to a direct negotiation with the afghan government and the taliban so unfortunately so that's that's we didn't see. our own commentary we saw and we are observed that
12:51 am
there could be risks to any process that the afghan government is not the main stakeholder and that and any process that cannot guarantee a cease fire a halt to the violence could be harmful for all of that humans that we've gained well tony berthing standing by for us in kabul let's 1st go to rob reynolds in washington d.c. rob what's been the reaction been in the u.s. . well it's been mixed the presumed predictively that is rub along partisan lines some. democratic opposition lawmakers appearing on the sunday morning political talk shows saying the president's negotiating style is flawed one said that he doesn't take advice from his intelligence or military leaders and goes with his gut which is in their eyes
12:52 am
not the way to pursue such a negotiation others including republican lawmakers said the president made the right decision pompei ago we heard from just a moment ago also said that there were real there was real progress being made in these talks that that a lot of roadblocks had been overcome but the killing of the u.s. serviceman last thursday in a bombing attack a car bomb in kabul was the point at which president decided to withdraw from the talks pompei of gave no indication as to when or if they would be resumed the president's president trumps own party and some of his inner circle including the national security adviser john bolton had been pessimistic or dubious about these talks for some time they had told the president that the taliban could not be
12:53 am
trusted to fulfill their promises but the president has made his own set of promises including one campaign promise to withdraw the remaining 14000 troops from afghanistan if that does not happen there could be negative political repercussions for donald trump though pompei 0 also pointed out that the president has used this negotiating tactic of walking away from talks at the last minute before. he did it in hanoi with kim jong un he did it with china in their trade negotiations at several points so that is. an indication perhaps that this is not a final dead cut and dried and to the talks that they could be resumed as in those other examples but for now the afghan war the longest in u.s. history drags on as more than 2400 u.s.
12:54 am
soldiers sailors and airmen and women killed and the death toll among the afghan civilians taliban and other fighters and afghan soldiers more than 100000 dead rob thanks very much indeed ok i want to go to tony barclay who's joining us from tony obviously the afghan government has been in many respects sidelined through most of these talks how is it reacting to this news. probably they're very. happy that this this is being canceled they have always felt they should be part of the process of course the taliban have always refused to talk directly to the afghan government they consider them to be puppets illegitimate and corrupt but ironically these talks that been going on in doha did have a possibility of the talks between between the taliban and the afghan government going ahead in fact the most surprising thing about this whole cancellation was i think the reaction of the taliban they seem the most surprised by the cancellation of the talks and they released
12:55 am
a statement they were very angry about the cancellation but they made several points and they said as far as they were concerned they thought it was a done deal this draft agreement they believe that all the details had been agreed by both parties and they talked about having this interim afghan talks beginning on september the 23rd so it's all a bit news to them and also it's surprising to a lot of us who are watching it because it took 2 days before president trump reacted to that bombing which killed the u.s. servicemen which also additionally killed 11 other people including remaining in nato soldier so it's a little bit surprising why now this is happened so it does beg the question what is going on behind the scenes in washington or as rob said maybe it's a bargaining tactic either way the the taliban will have to rethink its strategy and they've got a stark choice now do they go back and escalate the conflict or do they decide to make inroads and go back to the negotiating table in a different frame of mind as far as the afghan government is concerned they want to
12:56 am
see a ceasefire they want direct talks and as everybody says this conflict cannot be won militarily both sides know that perhaps that's why the taliban is talking but the also we know that this conflict can only be resolved truly and a permanent peace if all sides in the afghan conflict speak together that's the only way it's going to be resolved thanks tony. the british government insists it will stick to prime minister barak's johnson's plan to exit the european union by a top of the 31st despite multiple setbacks in parliament and the resignation of a senior minister on saturday rudd who was work and pensions secretary says she no longer believes the government is actually trying to get a deal she voted to stay in the european union in the referendum 3 years ago meanwhile france's foreign ministers rejecting another delay of bragg's it and says the u.k. needs to show the way forward. with how things are now it's still no to pushing
12:57 am
back to break that deadline the u.k. says they want to push forward alternatives to avoid a no deal but we haven't received anything so we still know we're not going to start over every 3 months it's up to the u.k. to show us the way forward paul brennan tells us more about the situation involving work and pensions secretary. this is a significant resignation and one that will bruise boris johnson you would have thought perhaps he couldn't be more bruised after the torrid week that he's had losing votes in parliament and finding himself painted into a corner as far as his breakfast strategy goes on able to call a snap general election for example but the rudd is a senior and respected member of the conservative party and it's significant for 2 reasons 1st of all the timing of it choosing saturday evening to make her announcement and that meant that she was able to do a tour of the sunday morning political t.v. shows here in the u.k. and 2nd of all because the language of the 2 used in her resignation letter and in
12:58 am
those subsequent interviews that she's given i mean she said that the expulsion of the 21 conservative m.p.'s who were thrown out of the party by boris johnson for voting against him she described that as an assault on decency and democracy very strong words and she also flatly contradicted the government's stated position as far as negotiations with the european union boris johnson has said that he is strongly pursuing a deal with the european union but amber rudd says that's simply not the case from her insiders you know she said that she saw no negotiations only conversations and she said that she no longer believes that leaving with a deal with a deal is the government's main objective 90 percent of the government's time she said was being put into preparing for no deal she said that that seemed to be the main strategy of the government and for those 2 reasons her resignation is deep in significant. a day of protests that started peacefully in central hong kong has ended in more careless demonstrators set barricades on fire blocked major roads and
12:59 am
vandalized a metro station earlier thousands marched peacefully to the u.s. consulate there calling on congress to pass a human rights legislation allowing sanctions to be imposed on hong kong leaders if you go parliament has this update from hong kong. this is one of hong kong's main shopping districts usually a very busy place on a sunday night and as you can see it's been brought to a standstill with white police over here blocking the road they chased the protesters 2 here from the financial district and tried to disperse them using tear gas among the shoppers and the crowds on a sunday night long long ago we saw people running with small children without any protection away from the tear gas so him said now just protesters here confronting the police will be are seeing as regular shoppers and regular people trying to confront the police off them why they're using such excessive force when there are people who have nothing to do with the protests but this has been
1:00 am
a constant or feign and this has been the next step in the protests that we are seeing where people want police accountability for their actions this is in stark contrast to the protests we saw earlier today when thousands of people marched to the u.s. embassy calling on the u.s. to push through a bill that would give them greater powers to safeguard hong kong's autonomy as i mentioned earlier the protesters and now sending out an international appeal for help in their efforts made to bring has more on that part of the story. these protests has gone global attention the target on sunday the united states. to china's leaders this week fuel their suspicions.
