6:27 pm
a satellite - the country who cluster and its connection to
6:28 pm
6:29 pm
welcome back to al jazeera america, i'm jonathan betz. here is a look at the top stories: secretary of state john kerry says world powers are closer to reaching a deal on iran's nuclear program. three days of talk ended. world powers want to freeze iran's nuclear ambitious, iran wants to end sanctions. meetings are scheduled for later this month >> typhoon haiyan is slamming into vietnam. it's not as strong as it was, but it has hurricane force winds. 500,000 have been evacuated from the north. >> the president, benigno aquino, saw the damage to his country. the devastation makes rescue and relief operations difficult. airports are closed and roads to damaged areas are impassable. as the typhoon hit, the officials met in warsaw for a climate change conference, i
6:30 pm
spoke to jimmie handwho cofounded i ask what the meeting was focussing on. >> there are two main goals on the table in warsaw - the first is getting serious about climate finance, we want countries to come into the table to put into the green climate fund funding mitigation and adaptation measures. the second is putting forward a clear work plan about how countries are going to come to the table at next september's leadership conference. we are not looking for a break through in warsaw, we are looking for a sign that the process is moving forward towards next september's meeting and beyond that to the 2015 climate talks in paris, where we'll see the type of progress we'll see for an international climate treaty. >> what chatter are you hearing in warsaw? >> most of the chatter is not about what is happening inside the summit, but what is happening outside the summit -
6:31 pm
which is that the polish government is hosting the climate talks and hosting what's called the world coal association's annual meeting. to host a coal meeting next to the climate talks is like putting on a cigarette meeting next to a cancer conference. the polish government has embarrassed itself on the re-examinational stage, making the argument that coal can play a factor in a clean energy future. i think they'll come under pressure from the world's countries and the u.n. to show that they are not trying to turn the talks into a corporate lobby fest, but seriously about beginning to make progress. >> what is the stand looking like. what do you expect to happen, what do you think the countries could agree to. >> i think that hopefully we'll see progress on the finance issue, we'd love to see countries come to the table and we can talk about mobilising talks, and second a commitment
6:32 pm
to put forward a work plan about strengthening commitments and making now commitments in advance of a leadership summit. there's a lot of debate and talk of food dragging, on the part of developed countries, an interesting and moving thing we will see is voices from negotiators, like those of philippines, who needed with the united nations and his fellow countries to take action on climate change, because of devastating impacts that hur kab bopa had last year. it will be moving to see what pressure the philippines delegation and all country's delegations put on their peers to show this is the time for leadership, we need countries to step up. maybe it's not immediate breakthroughs, but it begins to recalibrate the issue, making it seem serious, not just about the polar bears, but human lives on
6:33 pm
the ground. >> do you think that typhoon in the philippines, typhoon haiyan, may give the summit more urgency, especially with developed countries? >> i think they will. i think they are tired of waiting. we are seeing stronger rhetoric, countries demanding action saying, "we are cutting our emission, we taking it seriously, but we are not seeing leadership from the global north." it's frasing the activates m outside. there's a bit -- increasing the activates m outside. after the last failed summit in copenhagen, where we hoped to see a treaty - that's changed, across the united states and around the world people are taking the issue seriously. they don't need to read a scientific report to know that climate change is happening. that fundamentally transforms the issue, getting people off
6:34 pm
the couches n on to the streets. we'll see a bit of that, hopefully more around the world as we build towards important summits on climate change. >> thanks to jamie hann in warsaw. america's roman catholic bishops are meeting in baltimore. they have pull on capitol hill. the bishops will hash out key political issues. joining us to talk about this is father tom reece in baltimore, a senior analyst at the national catholic reporter. thank you for being was. >> pope francis has been clear in recent months that he is urging a new focus for catholics around the world. do you think the american bishops will be listening? >> i hope so. if you look at the agenda of the bishops meeting in batt more starting tomorrow -- bament more, starting -- baltimore
6:35 pm
starting tomorrow, it looks like a pre-francis agenda. if he came to talk to them, he wouldn't waste time talking about the agenda, he would talk about things close to his heart, a church being a church of reconciliation, a church of warmth, that warms people's hearts, that reaches out to people leaving the church, that want to accompany them, and be with them. a church of the poor for the poor. these are the kinds of things that are his priorities, and i'd like to see them talked about at the bishop's meeting. >> it's interesting points. they want to talk about minor translation, they put out a statement on pornography. why are the bishops opened on that. the pope wants to focus on big picture items like helping the poor? >> yes, i think that it's embarrassing that we have been in this great recession - the
6:36 pm
greatest economic downturn since the depression, and the bishops have not yet come up with a statement as a body on this crisis. and i think that's a failure of leadership. i think that they need to get with the program. they need to get with pope francis's program, which is very much concerned about the poor. very much concerned about people having jobs. you know, he feels that if a society where people want to work and can't find jobs - there's something wrong with that kind of society. >> as we head into the meeting tomorrow, do you think we are getting indications that perhaps they might get with the program or not. >> well, i'm going to be looking to see. i think - this is one of the first times they really had a chance to get together as a
6:37 pm
group, to - since pope francis has been elected. i think there'll be a lot of conversation around the coffee, over lunch and dinner. i think that the bishop's - we'll begin to see the bishops forming a response to the francis papacy. i think, you know, it's like a big battleship. it will be hard to turn it, but this is, i think, what pope francis is calling on them to do. >> is there not a concern that the pope perhaps is appealing to two wide an audience, alienating a core part of the church? >> if you look at the public opinion falls, only 4% of kath likes in the united states are -- catholics in the united states are unhappy with francis. i mean, people in washington would kill to have these kinds of polling results.
6:38 pm
>> the people that are not in the pous, everyone loves pope francis, he's auth entic. he lives the gospel, talks like jesus and reaches to the poor people and people who are sick and suffering. he has a heart. and he preaches the gospel message. that's what people want in the shepherds. they want people that are listening to them. they want lards who areling -- leaders who are listening to them, and respond to their needs, their wounds, their hurts. and i think this is what people want from our bishops. >> you can't argue from the fact that the pope is popular. we'll see if the bishops embrace the pope tomorrow. thank you for your time tonight. the united nations has issued a critical account of work conditions for migrants in cutta.
6:39 pm
there has been a week-long visit to the gulf state. positive reforms are taking place but more needs to be done. he highlighted housing standards of labourers working on construction projects for football's world cup in 2022. >> i have seen dwells by migrant workers. these are slums. this is a stain in the reputation of qatar, which is the richest country per cap ita, and it should not tall rate -- tolerate slums to be created. there are means of making it better, probably relatively quickly. >> u.n. representatives recommended that qatar workers should unionize and adopt stronger representation to protect human rights. >> thousands gathered in saudi arabia in an effort to get to their own countries, after people were killed in overnight rioting. saudis are cracking oun on might grant workers that don't have
6:40 pm
visas. >> these are workers in riyadh, rounded up by police after hundreds protested against a visa crackdown. many are from ethiopia. the police are urging those who overstayed their visas to turn themselves in. >> translation: arrangements have been made to offer them a chance to voluntarily surrender - individually or with families. >> in april the saudi arabia announced an amnexty to get immigration status sorted out. hundreds returned to their own country. last week the amnesty ended and the crackdown be can. >> we launched the campaign. this comes as part of strategy aimed at correcting the situation of violation of residents and employed to erat cade the phenomenon. >> workers complained they haven't been given enough time
6:41 pm
to get paperwork in order. >> we need ways to make it easier and we need a period of time. the time frame that passed was not enough. we need two years for people to get organised and for the trade and visas to end. saudi arabia ties workers residency permits to employers, meaning they can't change jobs or leave the country without their boss's permission. some employers abuse this power. >> the problem has been festering for years. a large number of people, 78 million, different nationalities, ethnic groups and language barriers, did do something. i think the government should check around and see what can be done. >> the saudi arabia government argues its crackdown is part of a plan to clean up the sponsorship system. and create jobs for its own people. many ex-pats who travel to the king dom it find work may,
6:42 pm
instead find themselves in prison, unable to get the papers they need to keep earning money. >> fully big problems are coming to an end in southern italy. the mafia, toxic waste and cancer. we have this report from italy. >> this is a land where grass barely grows. around napeles tonnes of toxic rubbish has polluted the soil for decades. local residence say the waste is killing the environment and them. >> translation: first my husband was diagnosed with cancer, then me. my neighbour and six colleagues got cancer too. that's when i started suspecting it had state government to do with the nearby landfill. >> they are among hundreds of residents who say the mountains of toxic waste dumped by the
6:43 pm
motorbikingal mav black local mafia lead to cancer rates increasing in the area. in 1997 a former mafia box admitted organised crime bauried br -- buried millions of tonnes of toxic race. in a statement made public he said about the people living near the land fills: 16 years later - a local oncologist says that with cancer rates in the area three times higher than the national average - the prediction is coming true. >> translation: what really hurts is not only discovering the criminals have been poisoning us for 20 years, but discovering that the state knew about it and hasn't warned us. >> it's not only toxic. industrial waste that ruins the eco system and the health.
6:44 pm
all kind of unsorted generic waste ends up in hundreds of illegal landfills like that, turning this region into italy's unofficial dumping site. now residents are calling for the authorities to clean up their act so the toxic dumps will not pollute the area for generations to come. >> robert is remembered this his old neighbourhood. a petition to name an intersection christopher waller's way is running into problems. >> the man at the center of the nfl hazing scandal speaks out - that's all ahead in sports.

6:48 pm
remember him. >> i started a petition to call this in honour of christopher wallis, big, an honour to him. >> when mccarthy presented his proposal board members said wallace was not a good role model because of his involvement with drugs and guns. >> there's a lot of good that came out of his life and life experiences. his lyrics went from a negative to a positive. >> two decades after his music made the area famous, it is not just about big's legacy, it's about the soul of the neighbourhood and the families calling it home. >> rocky's family opened a supermarket in 1967. >> everybody that came up in the neighbourhood packed bags. that was part of growing up. if you wanted to get new sneakers, and you doesn't want
