5:27 am
with five the highest. the en winds will cause a lot of damage and as well as that we'll have a storm surge and a lot of rain as well. that area of wet weather will work it's way across us an by friday some of us would have seen over 300 millimetres of rain and some places as much as 500 millimetres of heavy rain. that will cause a final problem with flooding. and then that system is going to work's way to ve vietnam. and vietnam has had heavy rain over the last three days. and right now we are watching a tropical depression making it's way over the seven part of the country that is giving us heavy rain and there is still more to come in the next few days. the area will stay wet on thursday a and on friday. it slowly desintegrates as it

5:32 am
going to be a difficult call. >> yeah, on one hand the israelis and i believe also the palestinians are very cynical. look this is his eighth trip and this is happening after the second round of what you just described as confidence building measures and both taken by the israelis and palestinians under pressure. from the israeli side the second round of releasing terrorists and the palestinians call freedom fighters. prisoners that were sentenced to life after targeting israeli civilians. >> an and at the same time the construction of new units in the occupied territories i can
5:33 am
hardly believe that kerry and president obama are able to just turn a blind eye to a stalemate in the peace talks and be remembered in history as an administration who just put back into the west bank, hundreds or dozens of prisoners and giving legitimacy to the construction of thousands of units. i believe he has invested too much american political chips can, presidential chips in this process that he cannot just say, well sorry, i tried, but it didn't work. and let me try somewhere else. i mean is there a feeling that kerry has to come away with something from this trip? there are reports that kerry might propose some kind of interim deal. let me ask you, what would that deal entail. it won't address the core issues
5:34 am
like settlement and borders and of course, security arrangements. >> yeah, as you know, the american diplomat, senior american diplomat is present in the negotiating room. and di it seems seems that he ig from -- after the next meeting after 14 meetings without much progress he is going to change hats from facilitator to mediator and put forward the american ideas, which will look as far as i understand, like the ideas that were submitted by president clinton at the end of 200. the israelis and palestinians are not able to reach an agreement on what you mentioned on issues such as divided
5:35 am
jeruselem refugees. it has to be a third party and there is a prize now. and the prize that kerry is putting forward is an american embarrassment. that the americans have failed, as i mentioned they just gave legitimacy to the settlement pro project and the release of prisoners and got nothing out of it. what kerry is doing here when he comes here again and again, putting a higher and higher price for the american failure and nobody, not netanyahu are willing to pay the price. and the a at the end of the dayf this fails, what they are going to see a year from now is palestinians states rec night 'noiserecognizedby the u.n. >> thank you very much for your time. a international court in hamburg has gun hearings

5:37 am
next couple of weeks will esche u a decision on what they are asking for the demand for russia to be they want the court to tell them to release the activists and the arctic sunrise. they want the legal proceedings to stop as well. russia has failed to turn up because it doesn't recognize this arbitration and procedure. but in the legal teams opinion, that doesn't change what the court can actually do, darren. >> in the meantime what is happening to the activists themselves? >> well we have been speaking to the grown peace direct year he stayed it's not clear ive when they ar --alberta when they are going to be thanks ford fro --transferred to a jain st. petersburg. it's good news and as far as the conditions weather were are very
