3:50 am
a regular allowed to boobs. that's not wind hidden in the gloom forty seven kilometers out to sea and krakatoa volcano is still erupting it has been for months but on sunday the eruptions triggered an underwater landslide that caused the tsunami that led to this hotel's line to the sea front here some workers in guest saw the wave coming and ran and then a book about it was not like a usual beav it was a huge wave before one thought and it was just rolling and rolling after at this hotel two children swept out of their ground floor rooms as they slept one of their bodies was found in the swimming pool after the tsunami it retreated across the road and yet i showed us her damaged house she's pulled metres above normal see that all here yet the water powered into her home and into her shop next door of

3:53 am
its way to strike them. this couple only realized it when the water started surging through the small food stall they operate near the beach that had a theme there was no warning at all even a tsunami warning when it suddenly happened in husband believes the government should invest in better monitoring equipment and i hope the government can use new technology because you're afraid there's going to be a voice in the future. living in such close proximity to a rumbling giant people here want that solution to come sooner rather than later and the experts seem to agree it's highly likely that there will be more tsunami generated by submarine landslides in the question is when is that going to happen we don't know are they going to be bigger ones we don't know what warning do you have well it's an active volcano and that's the essentially the warning. longer
3:54 am
after the dead brief from the synonyme has been cleared away the fears of people living here will linger many of the people who used to live down here at sea level are now in temporary accommodation on higher ground whether they'll return here depends in part on whether they'll be able to confidently predict what that sea will do next right al-jazeera and your district indonesia. at least twenty eight people have been killed in a car bomb and gun attack in the afghan capital kabul dozens people are still trapped in a government compound in the afghan capital as fighting between security forces and gunmen continues and the attack began earlier monday starting with a suicide car bomb around two hundred forty people have been evacuated by security forces most likely he was a security analyst in kabul he was at the scene when the attack happened then described what he saw. by prost by the media just after the attack
3:55 am
a few minutes after the attack took place. it is reported to be two car but car bomb. blasts taking place near the ministry of public works and blast took place just before. the stuff getting out of your offices and going our way from work saw yes a lot of smoke coming out of d.d.r. there was meant that the office was the fire had broken out in the building where the ministry is least any i do have some local apartments which i residential and it's a semi does eventually area. the former pakistani prime minister now was sheer relief has been given a seven year jail sentence after being found guilty of corruption he's also been falling to twenty five million dollars sharif denies the allegations and says he's being targeted by the country's security establishment for such
3:56 am
a bari has more three time prime minister nawaz sharif known as the tiger of pakistan is back in prison the anti-corruption court in islamabad imposed a seven year jail term for having investments beyond his the cleric assets. he was unable to prove the source of income for the ownership of a steel mill in saudi arabia or dug them out of. the courts or supreme for us we will abide by their judgments our leader no washer resubmitted himself to the legal process but all these proceedings are one sided sharif who denied the wrong doing had been sentenced to ten years in prison in july by the same court on different charges they were related to the purchase of property in london he had been freed on bail pending an appeal sharif's party last general elections in july of while he was in jail the history of august on has been that no ruler in pakistan has
3:57 am
had ever been actually sentenced you know prior to him the pakistani politicians have always been going scot free they have always believed they will not be sentenced in any case it is not possible they can exert influence but this time i think we are living in a different dimes people of pakistan they are going for you know accountability people are tired of corruption. the security around the court was tight for monday's verdict which shines on uncomfortable light on corruption at the highest levels of government in pakistan or such a party al jazeera. the poor performance of u.s. stocks worsened on monday despite the efforts of the treasury all three major indices closed down just under three percent in the shorter trading day on sunday treasury secretary stephen minu chain called the leaders of six of the us his biggest banks and was assured that they could survive the decline trump has blamed
3:58 am
the federal reserve a for the economic downfall of that really was on the joins us live now from new york get real just how bad are these results. well for the dow it was the worst performance on christmas eve in history the dow fall fell more than six hundred points twenty two thousand falling below twenty two thousand the last time it was even close to this was one nine hundred eighty five when it fell a little over half a percentage point well today it fell over two and a half percentage point so it's gives you an idea of how bad the trading day was here and it's very volatile as well it fell by more than six hundred points and it gained a bunch in the middle of the day and then towards the end of the trading last hour or so it lost another three hundred so over six hundred it's intern into bear market territory now and it just gives you an idea of how jittery the market is
3:59 am
right now and uncertainty of things really to come this is also really stems from not only uncertainty but also unpredictability coming out of washington you're looking at the government shutdown which is in day three of the uncertainty with the federal reserve chairman and president trump threatening to try to remove him from his position and also the trade war and tariffs with china all of this added up and you're getting these huge sell offs here with a lot of uncertainty and really unpredictability out of the policies coming out of washington but i guess it would be too much to ask for much confidence in the markets when the treasury secretary calls the c.e.o.'s of the six biggest banks a few days well one day or two days before christmas effectively after asking them if they can survive possible decline and it's not surprising any of this is it. it isn't but it shows you how how the policies just aren't working quite frankly as you mentioned steve did call the top c.e.o.'s of the major banks in the u.s.
4:00 am
while he was vacationing in mexico this was on sunday he did this as what he says as a preventative measure to try to call in the markets but what it did was just the opposite when it word leaked out and then it came out that this happened these calls were made people panicked quite frankly and i wonder what's going on are there systemic issues we don't know about is there something we don't know about and so when the trading day opened up today you saw that the market was reacting to that uncertainty listen it's just unusual for a treasury secretary like that to make a call but you know on a sunday like that to the top executives of u.s. banks and say there's enough liquidity out there it just really shocked the markets and it really proved the.
