days of national mourning to mark his death and that of iraqi paramilitary leader. with violence comes as diplomatic efforts are underway to try to resolve the growing crisis such as foreign minister has met the iranian president in tehran and called for a peaceful solution but some of binge of aid has more from baghdad. multiple attacks have been reported in and around iraq's capital baghdad 3 incidents confirmed by iraqi security forces one took place inside the fortified green zone they predict have landed near the u.s. embassy compound iraqi security forces calling it a rocket attack near the celebrations area inside the green zone the another incident happened in the neighborhood in a residential area of baghdad and the 3rd incident north of baghdad in sanaa had been province in balad base where some storerooms were head and we've also heard
from one leader of the militia who has been has been our brigade which has been deemed as a terrorist organization by the united states that all iraqi forces should distance themselves from u.s. bases from sunday on birds so it is a state of high alert for iraqi security forces as they brace themselves for what they expect is going to be some sort of a reaction and we've also seen a flurry of diplomatic activity to try and deescalate the situation in that region this is being spearheaded by others foreign minister who went to the iranian capital and met not just the president but his counterpart as well there iran insisting that this attack which happened in baghdad is a flagrant violation of international norms and law which is something that we saw in the telephonic conversation between sergey lavrov the russian foreign minister and the iranian foreign minister that was something that was repeated as well and
throughout the day here in baghdad the situation remains tense but calm as protesters mourn the death of their leaders in the iraqi capital their funeral procession took place here and then the bodies will be taken from baghdad to karbala and najaf is where i will mad the end mohan this will be. they turned up in their thousands angry and somber for the killing of their leaders by the united states. chanting and the u.s. slogans the protesters included families of the supporters of iran backed fighters in iraq. god willing the resistance to defeat their merican will continue and this gathering is a response to american attacks on the need this and victory is coming. at the funeral of money and this represent the various fighting groups which constitute the popular mobilization forces iraqis see the assassinations as
a violation of their sovereignty and of the rules of engagement by u.s. forces individuals the u.s. has called terrorists and public enemies are heroes to many in iraq that's why the current and former prime ministers came to pay their respects the leader of the popular mobilization forces who is also the national security adviser also walked with the procession. america's tyranny will fade as it exceeds its limits with our again as we demand the iraqi government and parliament legislate to make iraq stronger with the popular mobilisation forces the army and its people on sunday we want good news from parliament no procrastination and no delay we must get rid of dirty forces standing on iraqi chests. the banners of hezbollah brigades are prominent the u.s. state department has declared the shia group a terrorist organization its fighters were recently targeted by the u.s. on the iraq syria border and that was the reason cited by groups for attacking the us embassy compound in baghdad. this was the brigades former leader because we lost
commanders of the hotshot who liberated iraq and liberated provinces occupied by eisel iraq force on behalf of all the world this violation has all iraqi people angry and condemning the crime. the bodies of the 2 leaders traveled from holy shrines in baghdad to karbala and najaf. will be buried while very ill is to take place in iran receiving messages of support for iraq's sovereignty president has spoken to world leaders including the turkish and french presidents they agreed on taking measures to prevent iraq from becoming a battleground for other countries to settle their scores and beason commanders of groups say in death by some silly money could achieve the victory he wanted to expel u.s. troops from iraq the parliament's extraordinary session is already under mounting public pressure to legislate against the presence of u.s. forces in iraq but with
a weak interim government with limited legislative powers the government is likely to not meet those expectations. with out of there or back that. to mike hanna in washington d.c. there are reports the white house is expected to give congress formal notice of the strike on syria money we know about this. there are several out lights are in for reporting that the white house has inform congress that later on in the course of the day it will deliver a reason for its exercise its attack in iraq this isn't terms of the war powers resolution which makes it obligatory on the president to inform congress 48 hours after hostilities have begun now the nature of it is a signed document from the white house which would be expected to lay the reasons for the action that may be part of the classified of the public part of the document but then also within the document it's expected that there would be the
intelligence reasons given for the action that may well be classified limited to the eyes of congress alone so certainly this is a important step it is time democrats within the congress have been calling very strongly for such a move to be taken arguing that president trump has got to meet his obligations in terms of the constitution one of which they insist is to comply with the measures of the war powers act now this act is in place to prevent a president from taking any unilateral action without the permission of congress remembering very importantly that it is congress that declares war is not the president so this is going to be an ongoing debate in the house the fact that the white house is complying with the war powers resolution would appear imply that it does except the limits on the president's authority to put u.s. forces into conflict areas and mind talking of u.s.
troops and we're getting reports that around 3000 or so or so at least thousands of being sent to the region what more information is a match about that from that. well this is being a staggered process essentially there was an initial deployment triggered off to the demonstrations outside the baghdad embassy when an initial group of soldiers from the 82nd airborne were sent into the region this was a 3 stage deployment initially but now that has been extend to ated where it would be an invasion that some 750 paratroopers would be put into theater at this number according to the pentagon is now well over 4000 or from the same division 802nd airborne so this is certainly an increase in the number of forces that are being deployed which is somewhat ironic so many commentators in the light of the fact that president trump has insisted through his presidency that he wants to reduce the number of u.s. soldiers in conflict zones rather than increase them so certainly in the last 8
months there has been an increase he sent more troops to saudi arabia he is now sending more troops into the middle east in the wake of his attack on the iranian general mike hanna thank you very much indeed. still to come around 0 indonesia is suffering from its worst flooding in a decade with the situation expected to get worse before it gets better. the children forced to live on the phrasing streets of paris rights groups call for urgent action. hello there we've got some very unpleasant weather conditions across southern areas over the heat still very much in place the tickler through the interior we will some rain is coming in which is much needed but the trouble is once this system comes in the winds
a very strong at the same time and then once the front goes through the winds actually change direction but this is what's going to happen to temperatures throughout sunday $23.00 in adelaide a lot cooler in melbourne and 18 degrees celsius that is the rain but as a say the winds are shifting direction all the time where we have goals and very heavy amounts of rain is hair up into the northwest this is possibly a developing tropical psycho's that really will produce some heavy amounts of rain particularly across into broome for the next 2 or 3 days maybe as much as 300 millimeters of rain it is fine sunny warm out to was western australia and puff and then you can see on monday these temperatures are considered below into melbourne that rain pushing through victoria and just make his way up the eastern side of new south wales i mean want across into asia fairly unsettled through much of the northeast that they're fairly fast moving the shadows the snow flows through much of japan where we have got some stones on the is this mass here heading towards beijing so snow flow as you claiming to cloud on monday and the rain beginning to push into seoul and feeling cheetah with
a high of just 4 degrees celsius. oh there's not. a compelling film about getting an education under occupation. that is once the been of that i looked at it asked us if you don't feel sick you wouldn't come frankly we don't feel secure but we come. but what happened after the cameras left rewinds learning to die on al-jazeera. you.
