it's good to have you with us on al-jazeera these are our top stories donald trump used his address at the u.n. general assembly to brag about his accomplishments and has two years in office he said he'd done more in that time than any of his predecessors a claim that led to laughter in the assembly. also used his address to level more criticism at iran iran's president hassan rouhani back and has address he accused the united states of waging what he called economic terrorism and failing to on the international agreements the u.a.e. says it will support proposals for new peace talks on yemen or two weeks ago a planned talks in geneva were called off after all representatives failed to attend meanwhile the u.n. is warning millions are at risk of famine. now two days of mourning have begun in vietnam after the sudden death of its president. on friday after suffering from
a very virus a state funeral be held on thursday vice president. has been named acting president becoming the country's first. female well let's go to our correspondent wayne hayden is joining us live from and i said what's happening today way and how is the president being remembered. well elizabeth as you mentioned this is a. period of mourning that has been declared by the government and that is now underway we are seeing a very steady stream of people entering the national funeral hall behind me to pay their last respects to the late president many members of the communist party of government and also diplomats foreign diplomats based here in hanoi in the public elizabeth will also get their chance to go into the funeral hold to say goodbye to the late president try and die. on thursday as you also mentioned it is the actual funeral service we will see some leaders of governments particularly from around
the southeast asia region coming to that funeral service and when that is complete late on thursday the body of the late president will be taken just over one hundred kilometers south of the capital hanoi to nimbin province which is where he was born where he grew up in a small rural community there and that is where he will be laid to rest and when as we mentioned vice president. or take over as head of state she will be the first female in the position. yes that's quite right historic moment really to have the first female head of state for vietnam and we don't know at this stage exactly how long she will be in that position and whether or not she will be elected to it permanently it seems unlikely that she will at this stage we know that the national assembly is the body that will elect the next president the national assembly is due to sit again in the
shade jule months long sitting beginning on the twenty second of october there's no confirmation. the new president will be elected during that month long sitting but we expect that that is exactly what will happen that some time after october twenty second we will find out exactly who the new president will be but as far as any significant reshuffle at the top of the government at the top of the communist party that probably won't happen until two thousand and twenty one they tend to go in five year cycles this current leadership group came to power in twenty sixteen so we expect to see all of those changes take place in two thousand and twenty one and in the meantime way in hell as president tried to. remember his role was largely ceremonial monye all but he was hosting world leaders trying to the country's image on the world stage did he succeed. well certainly diplomatically over the past two and
a half years that he's been in power he was very busy certainly was in favor of closer ties with the united states for example he hosted a very high profile visit by u.s. president barack obama in two thousand and sixteen hosted current u.s. president donald trump last year after the a pig summit that was held in done that but but to say that it was entirely serum o'neill the position of presidents probably downplaying it a bit he certainly had a lot of power particularly when it came to domestic security related issues elizabeth thank you very much for that for now that's wayne hale with all the latest live and i thank you. now that i know of chelsea football club has failed to gain swiss residence a place classified roman abramovich a threat to public security the russian oligarch was ruled a threat over fears of money laundering and has connections to criminal organizations but on tuesday abramovich lost a legal battle with a local newspaper to prevent the publication of the reasons for his failure to

a fall from grace for a man who once so famous and beloved he was known as america's dad but who would judge now called a sexually violent predator eighty one year old bill cosby sentenced to three to ten years in jail cosby was found guilty in april with three counts of aggravated indecent assault after drugging and sexually assaulting andrea konstam in two thousand and four he used exacting skills. dearing t.v. personality to win over his victims and then keep them silent about what he did to them so now finally bill cosby has been unmasked and we have seen the real man as he's headed off to prison while the trial focused on the one crime against ms constant more than sixty other women have accused cosby of sexual misconduct spanning decades and after the sentencing many said they were glad he was going to
jail i wanted thirty we're. very sad that you know the missing part. my prayers for me is hard for people like you cut down on willingly. ok good thank you i just does because that's going to show them that they can make it through and that there's just the beginning cosby is legally blind in failing health and a philanthropist and that is why his lawyers argued that the judge should show leniency and he should be sent to house arrest but it was denied his lawyers plan to appeal this because the best team is preparing a motion to address mr skilling you falsified anybody with the kind of thing is we did not quite. be produced in starting a family friendly sitcom the cosby show in the one nine hundred eighty s. it was about the life of an affluent african-american family and it was the most
watched television program in america from one nine hundred eighty four to eighty nine the nine hundred sixty five t.v. series i spy was the first american television drama to feature a black actor cause be played the lead role for most of his life as an actor and comedian caused be paved the way for african-americans and was considered a role model no more his defining legacy will be that he was the first celebrity convicted in the me two era the movement to end sexual violence gabriel's andro al-jazeera new york well any of my colleagues. who covers gender issues with a focus on sexual violence for the huffington post and she says cosby sentencing is a crucial moment for the me too movement. a lot of people expected him to get much less time honestly so seeing him get at least a minimum of three years before he's up for
a probation and to see bill cosby the comedian go out of court in handcuffs that was a pretty big deal and some sixty other woman have come forward and accuse cosby of sexual misconduct but charges have not been brought due to the statute of limitations do you think the full story hasn't been told many many victims have come forward accusing cosby spanning i think the first reported one was one nine hundred sixty two so i do think that many of the victims have been able to tell their stories i do think that this has been given them a platform to discuss their trauma so while i think that there could be more victims out there i do think that this has given space to those who have come forward already the t.v.'s own dad get carted off in handcuffs i think that this is a great example of the impact and the influence that the me to movement has really created to see him leave the court in handcuffs and to actually spend time in
state prison i think that this shows that things have changed the pendulum has definitely swung. just a final thoughts on that point and how significant was the sentencing then in the wider debate about sexual misconduct is it likely to encourage more women to come forward to talk about their own experiences i definitely think it will encourage more women to come forward sadly if you look at what and your constant had to go through to get to this day it's not very encouraging she had to go through. two trials much less the depositions before that in a civil suit prior to that so it's not an easy road and that's obvious but i think as we believe women and survivors more and more and we see outcomes like cars be today more people will be likely to come forward in the future. you know again i'm one of the problems with the headlines on al-jazeera donald trump used his address at the un general assembly to talk about has accomplishments
in his two years in office he said he'd done more in that time than any of his predecessors a claim that left lead to laughter in the assembly but his stance of america first and patriotism was countered by other leaders who called for strengthened international ties trump also used his address to level more criticism at iran iran's president hassan rouhani head back in his address to. the government of the us at least the current administration seems determined to render all international institutions ineffectual lawful unilateral sanctions in themselves constitute a form of economic terrorism and a breach of the right to development the economic war the us has initiated under the rubric of new sanctions not only targets the iranian people but also entails form full repercussions for the people of other countries. american comedian bill cosby has been jailed for up to ten years for sexual assault he was found guilty of

instantly shifting news cycle of the listening takes calls and questions the world's media exposing how the press operates and why certain stories take precedence while others are ignored the listening post on al-jazeera. let me ask where we could be in five or ten years. what would you be doing where would you went and who want to be in five or ten years because if we were younger because of your resume your hand i do sure you really want to answer ok the three of you are sure ok just two of you know i am biassed you with a question. and if you don't get the answer right if you leave this trading right away. and i'm serious about that or you know what i just did i've just presented to
you what life would always do life would try to scare you but all the bull would only those who are able to keep their eye on the or even when they be threatened i saw that she was going to put i'm down here it is mongrel dog now. we're going to go by osmosis and then she put it off and i love the board that i see now that is the attitude i want all of you to have one of the questions that i was and what i interviewed is told me how your field before and what you did about it because i think might be an opportunity. i'm a social entrepreneur i am in secondary told by the many should have nigeria on our walk is focused on young people. all of the fun to. keep going for use in the next on.
your own. in mind that you know that one is potential but the minute you it makes me. is the fact that for many years we basically said all the government to government hsu was that those shoes those that issued. anything he would install on their own. when else much younger than i access to a computer and i went out of my way to not use it and so that's is a key part of what i do not training young people connecting them with opportunities from technologies. to get them into what they're going to and this is what the population multiplies it's called small nigeria out through the first you will find people from almost every
tried to every to the. my friends i'm going to school which is why i got all those you know idea and passion about technology from i was told by a teacher i would never want us not to use computers because you know i was really tiny and he was a big man he said you know you kind of fantasies there were like you. i cried. i'm of the millions of course when you did not have tears in your eyes when you get into the lap of the gods we look at you as a woman's voice so i think after cry between the principal's office on my class i you know when you africa right inside i moved outside inside before somebody said something up ok and you got to be born until tomorrow on to every five of you right
or you don't want to know so you could in fact and i'm. the kind of guy you don't turn out to do something i will do it if you tell me it's impossible i take it as a challenge like you're saying or when. i'm only talking with intuit you're going there we're told he said see you i mean sure. he's in there now good if you're. in one incident and that's because what we offer it's very simple we're seeing you have this community doesn't exactly inspire hope but if you go through this process you will become a role model for everyone else in the community. all
of them this is what i learned in my short years of going from the young man who was told he would never want to not use computers to become you know one who travels the world to discuss the same thing called computers that there's a blend what it is we put together to start the curriculum here what it really is and if you thought you give me twenty. we're transforming center. what i basically want to communicate to them is one thing these seven weeks will change your life if you allow them to. my enemies. my dearest the comment of conduct of.
last year i wanted to write an exam the exam was visibly on. so there is no i came to be was just learning. in my exam you have to do the opening you were prepared i was thinking people would come very very elegant i even had been thinking that it is only. when i came to him while i was really surprised that even if it would be a very wonderful for me. colors are good and. condom propre. green and i look. back and remain a painter and many schools are in so we are ok what is the question parents.
aroused absolutely governments career by doing. so at some point or this is even the lessons i went even though it wasn't it would you where i wanted i guess that's money. maybe of this film is training on help over the next few years right what do you see yourself you know the next two to three years. i've been. to be with ok well i'll be doing what he was going to stream before. so how did you hear about this. impression i'm getting is that. somebody told me all of us thought i was like all that stuff. so it's got to be
a lot but that's this. you should know about life or something you don't want to but i mean honestly you know you think it's an opportunity you just want of life or you know you should you should get some more information. with all sorts of people from disinterest. this is the only opportunity i'll give you my life to. writing this is. great. for you i mean it's an even if i'm in the nice there's an opportunity that little bit of work that if. you're. the kind of people who are looking for from very very ground who would otherwise not be able to afford this kind of training that's one of the things that if you're selected you would learn from this program how to make money from your skills to pick. person
we're looking for is someone who is already on a path to unemployment and to the bottom of pyramid we can tell that they're just looking for one opportunity you know to make themselves better because once you help one person you have them literally. my name is in my care for a friend of my would know about being wounded in wars and creating new persons anubrata deformed them i was like there was these that i don't usually believe what you've been like get in a simple diet as it plays out and you're so impact into you without you being a dying or is like wow is this happening in this place so i say ok let me give it a try i had to call man i saw it i saw it for myself i'm it was really wonderful. yeah this is my home this is reality. there's my mom. this is old and leaving
for. then he says to doesn't fall as you will make it eleven years and my mom and my older sister to sleep on the bed here my older brother stays on this place and this chair yeah and i myself i sleep here is where i sleep. so that's my old. missing. gary and. it's full. of his drugs as being something else do something good annoys me to d.d. don't really know would have passed through. that was the one of the the last year that my mom she nearly wanted to drown inside the ocean but i remember my lead to seven day in very small so out to run to her and. me in my court.
because i know what she wanted to do she wanted to get us if she. didn't. do. it you just. told us all computer news that you need nigeria but we're different in the sense that our train is more full cost is not even for coastal niceties so what we see is that our water is close and you've equal opportunities that's why we quoted the life program it's focused on life skills because these are kids who are been beaten by life so we visit to make them understand you can actually do something we have i see two metres or so one of the four different things we do that is financial rate is on the last part of it's and to produce a ship it's a busy week on the show your eye which is something you know and i would imagine what are you doing this time when the show you are basically means zero point your
eyes because that opportunities the reason you can see them is because you don't open your eyes wide enough just yet. if if. if seen many people under street just delays in the chain if i can call more for. workers if he could transform my income in my mind. my way of reasoning believe those people out there the kind of possible. he is anything between fifteen and eighteen million most of the people you would.
