bringing in but getting it from the airport to the communities the people that need it most seems to be a slow process. much sits at the airport awaiting distribution but for an increasing number of people the wait for a place on a flight to safety is over as they leave they perhaps contemplate an even longer wait before they'll be able to return home wayne hay al-jazeera palu indonesia. lauren go from ten is a senior communications officer for the international federation of red cross and red crescent societies she says teams are working hard to reach people who've been cut off tragically our red cross teams came across a village called to togo it is on the border of pallu and siggy it is a village that has been completely obliterated it was once home to fire a hundred people and they have just recovered fourteen bodies and they're continuing their search and rescue efforts access to these areas are is difficult we've actually tried to come up with very creative ways we've actually we've

deployed three ships soul of supplies and goods which should be reaching palu today with things like tents mobile kitchens mosquito nets things that people can use in as well as tragically body bags to recover the dead the un's top court has ruled that the u.s. should lift sanctions on humanitarian goods to iran iran has hailed the decision by the international court of justice as a victory but washington says the i.c.j. has no jurisdiction in the matter so in basra the reports from tehran. in the case of iran versus united states of america the fifteen member bench of the international court of justice ordered the american government to make sure that sanctions against iran do not impact humanitarian aid or civil aviation the united states of america in accordance with its obligation is under the nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity economic relations and concert

a lot of writers shall remove by means of it choosing any impediment is arising from the measure this announcement on eight may twenty thousand to the free exportation to the territory of the islamic republic of iran of medicine is on medical devices food stuff is going to cultural commodities despair parties equipment and associated services including one t.v. maintenance repair services and inspection is necessary for the safety of aviation iran argued that sanctions reimposed after u.s. president donald trump pulled out of the twenty fifty nuclear deal in may violate a little known french agreement that predates the one nine hundred seventy nine islamic revolution the court agreed but didn't call for the complete lifting of
12:09 am
sanctions falling short of the resulting decision that iran would have wanted judges did ask the u.s. not to interfere with banking transactions related to food medicine and air safety but even as the judge read the ruling its practical application remains a question mark and any history made here by the i.c.j. judges is likely to be symbolic at best. with no policing mechanism to enforce its decision in practical terms the court's judgment is more recommendation than ruling while the u.s. does not recognize the authority of i.c.j. judges it did take iran to court back in one nine hundred eighty when it was still a voluntary member in a case centered around the u.s. embassy hostage crisis the i.c.j. ruled that the iranian government was bound to secure the immediate release of the hostages to restore the embassy premises and to make reparation for the injury caused to the united states government but after the court ruled it owed nicaragua war reparations in one thousand nine hundred six the united states withdrew from
12:10 am
the court's compulsory jurisdiction iran has been arguing that the approach by americans to war to iran has been illegitimate as well as unlawful by taking the case to the core against the united states i think what you want wants to say that that is the americans who have left the negotiating table that is the americans for who are not observing the international law that is the americans who have been ignoring or is a listen by the united nations security council on monday iran and america will face each other in court again for public hearings over two billion dollars in iranian assets frozen in two thousand and sixteen the latest world court ruling may seem like a hollow victory to many in iran struggling under the punishing strain of american sanctions but it does help illustrate a point that leaders into iran are keen to make as often as possible given the chance they say america under donald trump does not respect international institutions zain basra the old jazeera to her own. where you like compare has
12:11 am
commented on the i.c.j. winning. it rose what was the reaction from compare. well the reaction lauren was two whole two fold from the secretary of state first mike pompei o said that the u.s. is not going to were recognized the legitimacy of the i.c.j. ruling because it's a case that deals with the us as national security concerns and as far as the trabant ministration is concerned that's not an area where the i.c.j. has any jurisdiction the other reaction the one that has gotten so much reaction is that the u.s. is going back and doing something that one would have thought would have changed after the one nine hundred seventy nine islamic revolution inside iran i'm announcing that the united states is terminating the one nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity with iran this is a decision frankly that is thirty nine years overdue iran is abusing the i.c.j.
12:12 am
for political and propaganda purposes and their case as you can see even the decision lacked merit given iran's history of terrorism ballistic missile active and other mind behaviors iran's claims under the treaty are absurd the court's ruling today was a defeat for ron and rose donald trump's a national security adviser has also been talking about this what's he been saying . well not only has john bolton basically agreed with mike pompei o that the i.c.j. had no business even taking the iranian case and delighting in the fact that iran essentially lost most of what it had tried to get in terms of relief from the court john bolton also of then said in another matter involving the i.c.j. that the us was going to well walk away from an optional protocol or amendment to the one nine hundred sixty one vienna convention on diplomatic relations that
12:13 am
protocol or amendment says that when two governments have a dispute about their diplomatic relationship one party can bring it to the i.c.j. which will act as the or betrayed or try to resolve the conflict well in this particular case we're talking about the palestinian authority and they have brought a case against the united states for moving its embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem the palestinians don't like that they say that's going to violate the final negotiations with israel over the status of jerusalem but the u.s. is view is it had the right to make this happen and it said because the palestinian authority is not an actual sovereign state that the i.c.j. shouldn't even be entertaining this suit and so they're walking away from the protocol and they're refusing to engage in any discussions about the palestinians concerns in jordan thank you very much indeed. during minister years alexander
12:14 am
carlisle a barrister and independent member of the house of lords that's the case of house of parliament thanks very much for coming in so just to let you go back to the i.c.j. ruling it looks as though it's actually get both sides allowed to kind of claim a partial victory on this well in legal terms i don't think the united states has much to claim a victory over this was a unanimous decision by a respected international court and essential it held that the united states was in breach of a treaty agreement they reached in one thousand nine hundred fifty five with iran which does not allow them to deprive iran of humanitarian products. the politics of this are rather in the favor of the united states because there's overwhelming evidence of the iranians being involved in state sponsored terrorism for example in europe about what they didn't say was that that that it covered all the sanctions it was to do with only that the humanitarian side of things that is why the states as were saying actually it wasn't a full victory for iran but but in terms of what it can achieve. if if as we now
12:15 am
hear the u.s. now saying well we're not getting out of the amity treaty as well do you think there's going to be any any part of this that they will stick to i don't expect the united states to accept this judgment in any way or be contrary to what president trumpet i think it's unfortunate for the international community that the united states is not prepared to submit to the jurisdiction of the most important international court in which disputes between states are tried and it is a very respected jurisdiction does it damage the i.c.j. generally though if countries as powerful as the us don't seem to be kind of following through their rules and it's an interesting question the i.c.j. has always walked on a tightrope really because there are very high legal quality they have speak streamlet good judges if you read their judgements they're very cogent but it's almost impossible to. force those judgments and this judgment is
12:16 am
a paper tiger undoubtedly in the sense that nobody's going to enforce it against the united states i misspoke there was one one bit that pompous said about the the humanitarian side is that existing exemptions authorizations and licensing policies for humanitarian related transactions and safety front will remain in effect and he said that the united states of engaged on these issues without regard to any proceeding before the i.c.j. of this century saying we're doing this anyway we didn't need the i.c.j. to tell us what it is that fair or well it's not fair actually because if you're going to look at this in legal terms the united states went to the i.c.j. they submitted to its jurisdiction by arguing their case they lost exactly the argument that mr pompei o has been suggesting that they won but in a sense that begs the question about the overlying over arch political problem about the behavior of iran and the way in which sanctions are now being applied against iran by the united states but without the support of the european union for
12:17 am
example and so on that front i mean how does this where does this leave companies european companies for instance who have been worried about breaking u.s. sanctions by trading with iran does this give them anything to go on there is no comfort to for any company because that has any business in the united states because companies run the risk of being deprived of the business of the united states and indeed individuals involved in such companies run the risk of being prosecuted in the united states so companies are very worried about the situation and this ruling doesn't help them at all it doesn't help at all ok and this girl thank you very much indeed for coming stuart and thank you. watch more head on the al-jazeera news hour including concerns grow over the whereabouts of a prominent saudi arabian journalist who has not been seen since visiting resounded consulate in istanbul. i'm to see a new lead in northeastern brazil the poorest part of this enormous country and
12:18 am
coming up i'll explain why the hopes and needs of these people could determine the outcome of sunday's presidential election. find out which baseball team has won the longest ever sudden death playoff. rebels have released two songs of yemen's former president ali abdullah saleh is a move the signals an effort to break the deadlock in the ongoing conflict salah on monday on sunday have arrived in jordan after oman and the un envoy to yemen negotiated their release the two had been detained since former president sally was killed by the rebels in december twenty seventh teen and smith has more from neighboring djibouti. releasing the sums of. could be a concession by the u.n. special envoy to yemenis now in abu dhabi he has previously said he wants to start
12:19 am
talks between the who theories and the internationally recognized government of yemen as soon as possible to try and avert the collapse of yemen the who things have sad in the past the muslim group is a side of the who things have said they have led you to take part in talks so this looks like some sort of goodwill gesture by them but as the who these do that the southern transition council is threatening to try an attempt again to take over the institutions of government in southern yemen they want to return to the pre ninety ninety southern state of yemen but the s.t.c. has not been invited to take part in talks it wants to be involved in a talks that might take place and that leader is also in abu dhabi at the same time as martin gretta so this threat this attempt by the s.t.c. to say they're going to take over those institutions in southern yemen also be an attempt by then to get themselves around the table with booth is an internationally recognized government of yemen all of this piling pressure on the u.n.
12:20 am
special envoy martin griffiths united nations children's agency is suspending cash aid to nine million people in regions of yemen controlled by who the rebels unicef says it's because they were unable to set up a call center for recipients to confirm they were actually getting the money there are security concerns have forced doctors without borders to suspend their activities in the government controlled adelie region agency says some of that stuff members were attacked on monday and so it is mounting for the safety of prominent saudi journalist jamal khashoggi who has recently become a vocal critic of the kingdom's leadership a spokesperson for turkish president richard one says he is inside the saudi consulate in istanbul but saudi officials say he is neither in the consulate nor in saudi custody just as yet has more. on tuesday jamal khashoggi walked into this saudi consulate in istanbul to collect proof of his divorce so he could remarry he
12:21 am
hasn't been seen since but you know not when the who he does in the one and we are positive he is still inside it we are waiting with his fiancee who is with us here we are staging a sit in here until he is released once an advisor to the saudi royal family who showed he fell out of favor as he became increasingly vocal in his criticism of crown prince mohammed bin selma i still see him as a reformer but he is gathering all power within his hand and it would be much better for him to allow a bidding space for the critic for the intellectuals for all your active sort of the media to debate the most important needed transformation going in the country because jodi left saudi arabia last year as the government began its recent crackdown on dissent arresting clerics intellectuals activists and businessmen in the absence of any reliable information to show he's website now declares he's been arrested but saudi authorities insist he left their consulate but this is the most
12:22 am
of all the contradiction in the saudi regime is claims that it is opening up that it is liberalizing we've seen a lot of talk a lot of statements from saudi officials heading in that direction but when you look at the actions of the government government we see something very different the washington post says it's very concerned about the whereabouts of one of its prominent commentators in a statement the newspaper said it would be unfair and outrageous if he's been detained for his work and we hope that he's safe and we can hear from him soon jamal let me start with you you've been talking to al jazeera spoke of the changes in saudi arabia it is an important transformation that requires all of us to contribute to it to discuss it and no one should be jailed there is waiting for him outside the saudi consulate in istanbul would agree.
12:23 am
at a rally in mississippi president trunk told supporters saudi arabia's king relies on backing from the united states to stay in power it comes as the u.s. is pushing opec which saudi is the key member to lower oil prices jack saudi arabia would you say the rich. and i love the king king solomon but is it king we're protecting you you might not be there for two weeks without us you have to pay for your military. illness gabon japan is going to also contribute larger pair and we protect japan that has a small percentage we project south korea they pay us and by the way we're doing great on north korea but south korea they're going to reimburse us they're going to be a pleasure. when the solicitor lawrence korb is a former assistant secretary defense and a senior fellow at the center for american progress he joins us live from
12:24 am
washington d.c. so what does trump thinking with his remarks to what is actually one of his strongest allies in the middle east. well he's trying to appeal to his base and say the rest of the world was taking advantage of us and since i came in we've gotten everybody to pay their fair share he did get the saudis to contribute a couple hundred million dollars to syria money which we would have given what it's really completely what he said is completely wrong the saudis spend an awful lot of their on their own defense adn they buy a lot of american military equipment for their defense so in effect we have a net gain from them and you know we don't have you know any troops in saudi arabia our troops are in god or where helping the saudis in yemen but basically that is not really costing us you know or an awful lot of money
12:25 am
so it gets to see it is just campaign rhetoric when you think it might damage the relationship between sound in and america well it could i mean these comments and he has made them about our allies you know for example he criticized germany for the gaffes that they get from russia he also and i think in the run up to it the real key thing is he wants them the poll more oil to make up for the oil let's come off the market after he got out of the iran nuclear deal how concerned are you that it that it might play into the hands of people who oppose this saudi regime into the hands of extremists you know not to suggest that space is like saudi puppets of the the u.s. that is that is their consent on that level. well i think the real concern i mean immediate concern is that the saudis will buy weapons from russia for example rather than the united states i don't think that they'll you know stop working with
12:26 am
us and calling for support in places like yemen but basically i think that this really gets the rest of the world to worry can they count on the united states if you know if something should happen if things should get out of hand and you had a rand you know get involved in saudi arabia i mean those are the type of things that i think we need to we need to worry about and of course you know when he won over there early he said you know he supported the saudis against god or then when his secretary of state went to go to a no no we're not doing that so it's an awful lot of confusion and that's the last thing a superpower like the united states needs to do is be sending conflicting signals just briefly that i mean he specifically singled out the king in saudi arabia is this sort of picking on the king to try to boast of the crown prince's chances
12:27 am
would you think it's not as sophisticated as that well again i think he is you know he did have a phone call with the king and i think he certainly is trying to make sure that the king stays in power and as you know with a lot of the changes he's made there's been you know some. opposition but i do think that this comment will embolden the opposition to the king because they can say well look say all you've done for the united states and trump and look what he's just done to you in school thank you very much indeed for your thoughts and something a time thank you for having me what you missed in the heads. south africa's deadly drug habit we meet the mother driven to kill her own son due to the addiction that has ravaged her community. mistry of china's missing superstar really legend being slapped with a one hundred twenty nine million dollars tax fine. and free time champions that

a country at war with itself over leaving the european union but when push came to shove she indicated they would be no more concessions from in the endless negotiation with brussels britain isn't afraid to leave with no deal if we have to thank me even without introducing terrorists and costly checks at the border would be a bad outcome for the u.k. and the e.u. it would be tough at first but the resilience and ingenuity of the british people would see us through her friends and her enemies in government will both of found something in all of what she said never mind that she made no mention of every financial warning that the u.k. economy could fold in the event of a hard rex it's this was rhetoric from the trenches of world war one we stand at a pivotal moment in history it falls to our party to lead our country through it. when we come together there is no
12:34 am
limit to what we can achieve compared to the robot she is often painted as this was a confidence passionate and at times very personal speech which will have gone down extremely well with the party faithful but i believe that things like british ingenuity and black spirits will do nothing to persuade the european union that she has a new plan if anything what this speech did was to make a no deal harder rex's much more likely the other thing this will be seen to have done at least for now is to shore up her leadership as prime minister but both she and the european union sharpening their knives lawrence lee al-jazeera burning him . russian president vladimir putin has denounced the poisoned double agent as a traitor screwball and his daughter survived a nerve agent attack in the u.k. city of souls brain march speaking in moscow putin said scribal was no longer of

poverty in some of brazil's most heavily populated areas has made people easy prey for politicians looking to buy votes many of these places lack basic services like running water and sewage disposal but they're a magnet for political leaders in hope to win big in sunday's election one of these areas is a northeastern state of a logo us on that america at a center see in human reports. sixty five year old mother. can't read or write or even sign her name but what she does know is how to work. i started working in the tobacco fields when i was nine my father had died and my mother couldn't make ends meet. the story is repeated in the nearby sugar fields generation after generation men work under the merciless sun of northeastern state . i started when i was stand i'm forty four now i couldn't find
12:41 am
any better job my father did decide we never went to school but my son does. i hope he will be able to get a better job because this is no way to live. in northeastern brazil is heavily populated which makes it a magnet for politicians seeking election help in this slum there's no sewerage running water or other basic services sixty percent of the people here are not live in poverty their needs are so great and their pockets so empty that they are easy prey during election time for politicians they can come here and buy their votes for as little as ten dollars from where they are going to wilton via that is a catholic deacon who works in the slum appropriately named after the virgin of the poor seventy percent of residents are illiterate people killed or do they have. of course if i'm a politician and i gave culture an education to people i'm impairing them and if
