where ever you are. for centuries egypt the sort to come on power over the mild event we aren't harming any of the not of basal countries they don't mean that most that if they get their water from rainfall boss upstream this dominance is being challenge by countries who want to grant a share i know some people who make your. own question then yes this circumstances have changed and changed quite a struggle over the mild at this time on al-jazeera. what we've just witnessed on the floor was the. democrats this will be called the trump shutdown. the u.s. government runs out of money but it may have to take day to day life unless the new
11:01 am
thing. other than your karl this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. back forces prepared to cross into syria says a kurdish enclave on its border is a threat to its security. pope francis makes a plea to protect the abhisit and its people during his trip to peru. and egypt president makes it official he is going to run for a second. u.s. government has officially shut down a senate vote to fund federal agencies until next month fail just a short time ago only essential offices and services will now remain open republicans and democrats of pointing the finger at finger at one another oh hey reports from washington. this is not the anniversary any leader wants to have it
11:02 am
was exactly one year ago when donald trump made this promise and became president we will face challenges we will confront hardships but we will get the job done he vowed government would work again it's clear with this. it isn't republicans who control the congress and the white house lost four of their own members but picked up five democrats still not enough to pass the bill that means many nonessential government employees won't be coming to work on monday without a deal although most essential federal services will continue the employees just won't get paid until it's over it came down to this a program that was in place to protect children brought into this country without documentation president trump threw it out and said congress should fix it he promised to help if we do this properly dr you're not so far away from
11:03 am
comprehensive immigration reform and if you want to take that further step i'll take the heat i don't care i don't care i'll take all the heat you want to get. they brought him a bipartisan deal and he refused to sign it so democrats refused to help pass the budget now the white house is saying they still have the weekend to work out a deal i think it will be taken care of the month i actually that's why i just said i think i really think there's a really difficult to. fix the problem for the office of the future for now it is a standoff a functioning government held hostage while two parties wait to see which side the public will blame for the very dysfunction that trump promised to end exactly one year ago what we've just witnessed on the floor was a cynical decision by senate democrats to shove us. millions of americans for the sake of irresponsible political gash a government shutdown was one hundred percent avoidable this will be called
11:04 am
the trump shutdown because there is no one no one who deserves the blame for the position we find ourselves in more than president trump. al-jazeera washington. well here's what happens now the u.s. government has officially shut down hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be affected but its impact will vary across departments more than ninety five percent of employees at the environmental protection agency and housing department will be out of work that's compared to about fifty percent of workers the treasury u.s. defense secretary says training maintenance and intelligence operations will be impacted around hoff of the defense department seven hundred forty thousand civilian workers will also have to take a leave of absence and if you're planning to visit the u.s. landmark tourist sites like washington's famous smithsonian museums and the national zoo well they'll be closed but services like border security as well as as
11:05 am
traffic control will continue the state department also says visa services at u.s. embassies will remain as long as funding remains. is a political analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university he thinks the shutdown will hurt president trump the most. he'd love to be able to fire congress but he can't do that and people hold the president responsible for running the federal government look the president's republican the republicans have majorities in both houses of congress democrats are perfectly confident they can put the blame on the republicans for not being able to do what they were elected to do namely keep the government open the democrats feel empowered by this they did take a stand on the immigration issue and actually most americans sympathize with the democratic position that young people who were brought to the united states as illegal immigrants when they were children should be allowed to remain in the united states that's something that's going to be very difficult for republicans to
11:06 am
attack so the immigration issue while it's central to the shutdown most americans will simply see it as a failure of governance and more and more evidence that the united states is becoming ungovernable. there as defense secretary says the focus for his nation's national security has moved away from terrorism on to the competition between the great powers to his masses said the focus would be on can train china's expanding mochi its increasingly aggressive russia is the latest sign of sifting priorities in america's defense strategy in several times he has more from washington d.c. general motors warned of it washington was in danger of losing what he called its qualitative edge in weaponry against china and russia that's despite the estimates that say that washington spends more than the next eight to ten countries combined on weaponry including russia and china this was the pentagon's interpretation of the white house national security strategy released last december i don't retreat
11:07 am
at the same points the change in emphasis to great power competition from terrorism was the first point he made. we face growing threat from revisionist powers as different as china and russia or from each other nations that do seek to create a world consistent with their authoritarian models pursuing veto authority over to other nations economic diplomatic and security decisions rogue regimes like north korea and iran persist and take an action that threaten regional and even global stability biol and extremist organizations like isis or lebanese hezbollah or al qaeda continue to show hatred destroying peace and murdering innocents across the globe what's particularly striking about the pentagon's defense strategy and the white house is national security strategy is they completely contradict what donald trump said on the campaign trail that he would be putting america first that he
11:08 am
would withdraw from international entanglements that the u.s. would no longer be the world's policeman it's clear from these two strategy papers that both his defense secretary and national security adviser don't agree. u.s. vice president mike pence is on his way to the middle east for a three day trip to discuss moving the american embassy in israel to jerusalem yes decision to recognize to islam as israel's capital provoked international anger and still days egypt and jordan spend two days in israel where he will address parliament since have made it clear he is not welcome turkey is mobilizing thousands of free syrian army rebels on its border with syria they were taken in a convoy of buses as part of a military operation against syrian kurdish fighters there as the white p.g.a. in the syrian town of a frame turkey calls them a terrorist group has intensified shelling on a frame in recent days and says a ground assault could happen soon seven decades in antakya on the tacky syrian
11:09 am
border. the situation around the freeing is heating up there is been an increase in shelling from turkey into africa and also hearing reports that around fifteen thousand free syrian army fighters these are the rebels inside syria supported by turkey are mobilizing towards the east of affluence and this is all in line with the political rhetoric that's been coming out of anger over the last week or so the last voice added to that the defense minister on friday saying that the operation would happen that there should be no delay and that turkey had no choice but to rid of what they call terrorists along this border all of this very significant player is russia and this is why we've seen the chief of staff and also the turkish head of intelligence in moscow on thursday also told continuing on friday to try and see whether russia gives the green light why is that will russia controls the airspace over
11:10 am
a free and also has troops on the ground in that area it's all about politics it's incredibly complicated and you're seeing different players now carving up trying to carve up different areas of syria expanding their spheres of influence it is a very very complicated situation we have talks coming up in vienna and in sochi and certainly it doesn't look like anyone can seem to agree on anything at the moment. francis has called for the protection of indigenous in the heart of for years allison forrest that of the catholic church condemned the exploitation of gas and gold in the area which he says is endangering native peruvians says is following the pope's visit in. oh for. the first stop on a three day tour in. pope francis a champion of clean environment but members of amazonian indigenous communities the pope says they are the most vulnerable people and now they're living in danger and then you see the native peoples have probably never been so threatened on the lens

11:14 am
of the elections as one source of energy to see or a facade of this committee that would say that he won the elections fair and square and he has significant popular support. c.c. who swept to power in two thousand and thirteen after a military coup against former president mohammed morsi obtained ninety seven percent of the vote in the two thousand and fourteen election international observers question the credibility of the results saying the election fell short of international standards. campaign promises included rebuilding egypt reviving the country's economy and raising living conditions. but almost four years into his presidency many egyptians are disillusioned with his rule concern has grown that it has brought with it a return to the authoritarian security state that prevailed under former president hosni mubarak rendering the hero square revolution only
11:15 am
a brief experiment in democracy. real opposition to sisi in the march election is likely to be thin on the ground potential candidates have either already withdrawn or seen their candidacy blocked some have blamed an atmosphere of fear observers say cc's tactic is a recognizable one in the region of the mubarak and has less evidence of themselves the agent has used it before they would tell the international individual community that they won with ninety percent or ninety nine percent whatever the percentage by the same time there are no consequences for that so on one end it to bolster that eames that intimacy of the genes on one end and all that and you know there are no consequences for that actions. rule has been marked by a brutal crackdown on freedom of expression and civil liberties economic turbulence and increasing attacks by armed groups human rights groups have been placed under severe restrictions and many critics in the media have been silenced. his allies

11:24 am
test was effective for eight different types of cancer fluting five which no early screening currently exists here's how it works as a chuma forms and grows the cancerous cells within it change reproduce and die sometimes cierra shed cells that can get into the bloodstream and when cancer cells die they can also release d.n.a. and other fragments that also get into the blood cancer seek is described as a liquid biopsy and analyzes a patient's blood sample for traces of that cancer d.n.a. and identifying which genes and mutations are most active can identify the type of cancer and the best treatment the importance of early diagnosis of cancer can't be understated for example in the case of brow counts ovarian cancer and breast cancer ninety percent of those diagnosed early will continue to live for more than five years but the survival rate if it's caught at an advanced stage is much lower in
11:25 am
the case of a variant cancer is just five percent in the u.k. cancer specialists are giving a cautious welcome to the findings this is a very exciting first step along the way to such a blood test they've shown that you can pick up a toy any traces of the cancer in the blood. but potentially has the ability to pick up cancers early on and identify patients for surgery but it is a first step another specialist though wants to see the test accuracy improved stage one when we want to diagnose these cancers this is. whitelaw it's just about forty percent so that is something. that might hold this test but. when we try to think about mentoring the baltimore study worked with patients who had already shown symptoms of cancer the true breakthrough will happen if this test can identify cancer before the symptoms a match that could really make
11:26 am
a massive impact on survival rates this test is one step closer to the. open and al-jazeera london. and stash olympic committee is meeting with north and south korean officials to discuss their plans to participate jointly and next month's winter games delegations arriving at the i.o.c. as headquarters in the swiss says he. after holding their first high level talks into his soul and pyongyang agreed to march under a unified flag during the opening ceremony and jointly failed a women's ice hockey team but those moves still require i.o.c. approval we're looking for first of all to constructive meeting today we heard more than twelve hours of talks and negotiations yesterday and in a very constructive way so i hope we will come to a good result today and you will be the first one to know right after the meeting
