6:20 am
passports press before they could cross with just i.d. cards can you explain to us what the fallout from that decision has been and what the impact has been. yes of course the first couple of days a week seen a huge build up of migrants year on the room each other border there were more than two thousand of them that were stuck here without a passport because most of them are. barbara or are migrating this exodus they're doing the sex is only with their i.d.'s that but since the yesterday the number has gone down to less than five hundred a day now the question is what happened with all these people and the huge amounts of people was the reason why ecuador first announced. an emergency for the border region and speaking to the right red cross and other organizations that are
6:21 am
working with them they're telling us that that's what most likely happening is that they're using their throws and illegal crossings to continue their journey and they're in a hurry because most of them are trying to go to pay to and that she left and that they do also announce that starting next saturday they will also require a passport for the venezuelan. migrants so imposing the requirement of having a passport has to necessarily stem the flow of the migrants crossing over but it seems that the act ecuadorian ombudsman is trying to challenge this what can you tell us about it. definitely there was a hearing a court hearing earlier in quito the capital of ecuador today on wednesday and i just didn't want to expect it to come across a question
6:22 am
a level about the constitutionality of this requirement the fact though is that that he was then postponed. friday and. will probably have the news on that next friday but that means there will be too late for many of the venezuelan migrants that are trying to reach through before also through will start requiring them to show their passport to the results so far has been a huge amount of people that it has been crossing illegally into ecuador and that are trying to cross the country by foot it's because many of them were not able to buy a bass tickets because now bus companies are also requiring them to show that they're legally in the country i was on their m.p.'s in ecuador colombia border thank you. donald trump national security adviser says he is ready to work with russia to get iranian forces out of syria john bolton has been speaking in israel after three
6:23 am
days of talks and ahead of a meeting with his russian counterpart he also says that the u.s. is ready to ramp up pressure over iran's nuclear plants are a force that's has this report from west to islam. route his three day visit to israel one issue has dominated john bolton's discussions iran it was the main subject of his final news conference before leaving the country dream change in iran is not american policy. but what we want is massive change in the regimes behavior the iran deal is defective to that end he said donald trump's withdrawal from the iran nuclear deal and the reimposition of u.s. sanctions had begun to some extent to constrain resources available to iran's military and spur domestic protests against the iranian government it's just regular people saying they're fed up with the government. in small towns and cities
6:24 am
it's not the educated elite in tehran it's farmers and workers and small shop owners who are shouting death to the regime at death to america death to the regime iran's president was this weekend to demonstrate a very different narrative that of a well funded military unveiling its latest fighter jet the kind of strength he said that continued to deter u.s. aggression john bolton's hosts this week the immediate priority is addressing iran's presence in syria he said israel strikes against iranian targets that were legitimate and that russia had offered to cooperate both and so the russian president vladimir putin told both him and president trump that russian and iranian interests were not aligned inside syria that russia would be entirely content for iranian troops to pull out altogether but that russia couldn't do that by itself suggesting some kind of u.s. russian joint effort to represent asked week the u.s. secretary of state announced the formation of an iran action group designed to spearhead a wider scale u.s.
6:25 am
government effort against tehran one israeli analyst says it's a sign that the u.s. would not be willing to give up its own military presence in eastern syria if that is what russia is seeking the americans officially have already admitted that they're trying to interdict weapons going through. syria to iran and iran to hezbollah that they're already doing some sort of indirect action so i think there's already a hint that america's lonely staying in syria but it's becoming more of an iran focused mission ok thank you john bolton his next stop is geneva where he's due to meet his russian opposite number three fourths it was jerusalem. i'm now joined by ali then to national crisis group's iran project director and one of the world's leading authorities on iran's nuclear program is joining us from washington d.c. good to have you on with us now let's talk about what bolton has been saying they say they're going to the u.s. wants to ramp up pressure on iran not necessarily talking about sanctions what more can they do and what end would it ever be enough to deter or to affect iran's
6:26 am
nuclear program. look this of ministration wants to restore maximum pressure on iran in the minimum amount of time and that mostly takes the form of canonic sanctions but the administration i think is also considering pushback militarily against iran and syria and elsewhere maybe yemen but the reality is there is a long pattern of iranian regional policies in the past forty years and iran chooses asymmetric and low cost. regional policies that are not a function of the amount of money it has it's in its bank account and the u.s. and its allies have consistently failed to effectively contain iran's influence in the region for one thing iran's influence has increased in the past four years rather than decrees whereas sanctions and containment has been a constant consistent part of u.s. strategy towards iran all over i'll say about bolton has been saying he says
6:27 am
they're not seeking iraq a regime change they want iran to change its behavior is that likely. look again this policy seems to be regime regime change in everything under the name the reality is john bolton himself has written extensively and has talked about this publicly before becoming a national security advisor that he believes iran is incapable of changing its behavior and therefore the only permanent and long term sustainable solution for iran is to change its regime and the amount of change that the u.s. is asking for from tehran really amounts to a regime change but again the reality is from when they run is look at the situation they think that there would be regime change in washington before there is regime change in tehran and they can most likely afford to wait that long but ministration out there is also drawing a line between the sanctions they're imposing their economic hardships that
6:28 am
iranians are facing and the protests that we're seeing on the streets in iran do you think it's really that linear can we really connect the dots in such a simplistic fashion. look there is no doubt that there is a lot of pent up frustration within the iranian society and the economy economy is doing really poorly and will probably deteriorate in the next few months as a result of new sanctions specially always sanctions that will kick in in november but the reality is if you look at the past forty years. have managed several economic meltdowns and currency crises and if you look around the world you know venezuela now has inflation that is in the range of twenty five hundred percent if you look at the gaza over cuba these are countries economies that have survived over the long period of time under sanctions and they run as are much experience
6:29 am
with both repression and managing a difficult economic situation so i don't think you can draw a direct linear line and i doubt that the iranian economy will come to the verge of collapse in the next year and a half and this is why this is a race against time for both sides whether it will be economic collapse in iran first a regime change in washington for us is really good to get your thoughts thank you very much now the conflict in yemen has been described by the united nations as one of the worst humanitarian disasters in modern times the civil war has left millions struggling to afford basic and it's estimated that eight point four million yemenis are on the verge of starvation with many more eating just one small meal a day alan fischer has this report from neighboring deputy. the fight to survive comes in many ways all military conflict is torn of this country for almost four years abdul karim ali faces a daily battle just to feed his family he goes to the market in the city of aden
6:30 am
when he can but finds every day that the little money has buys less and less today it's bread and milk for abdul karim and his four children it makes life harder harder to support growing children harder to keep that knowing hunger away harder to believe to morrow will be better. if i choose moken bread according to my potential to eat because as i consider this is a main meal for me and my family and today we cannot see meat and it was usual to eat meat and fish on fridays but unfortunately we are now eating only one meal a day because it is all we can afford. all the stores in the southern port city of aden receive full fewer people can afford what's on display the value of the yemeni reale continues to drop against me to foreign currencies that mixed importing everything the country needs much more expensive prices of going up across the
6:31 am
board of course they doubled then tripled its no estimated food and medicine is five hundred percent more expensive. shuttle most of the low dollar our local currency is now in constant decline and the central bank has not done what it should do which is to inject foreign currency into the market and consolidate the exchange rate but the different prices and the big rise in the price of the dollar is very difficult as the more the currency loses the more we and our country lows. last year the yemeni government moved the central bank from who controlled capital center to it it was a step many experts predicted could bring the country to the verge of economic collapse program yemen went bankrupt after moving the central bank to the city of aden a legitimate government spends a long time recovering some of the central bank's functions and activation and in aid an illegitimate government has not been able to restore the state institutions especially the revenues institutions and therefore could not maintain revenues in the liberated areas the internationally recognized government relies on saudi

the courts in phnom penh given that over the last few days we've seen several people released from prison either having received pardons or having being granted bail such as journalists land rights activists and in one case a political analyst but it seems that releasing at the moment was seen perhaps as a step too far for the government and a judiciary that seen as far from independent will remain in jail awaiting trial on treason charges he wasn't in court for the bail hearing in fact he's only been to court once since he was arrested in september last year this all happening after july's general election in which the ruling party the cambodian people's party of prime minister hun sen who's been in power for thirty three years won all one hundred twenty five seats in the national assembly you are with the news hour coming up next we'll be checking out the.
