149. scientists in the us are the coming up plan to currencies and could bring as many as 8 hurricanes they say the storms have been getting more powerful over the years and they blame climate change and the gallacher reports from miami. the 2017 atlantic hurricane season was one of the deadliest on record hurricanes harvey maria and caused billions of dollars worth of damage wrecking entire communities in their wake. according to the center for climate and energy solutions storms have increased in intensity over the past 3 decades fueled by warmer oceans and made worse by rising sea levels it's something researches at the school of marine and atmospheric science in miami have spent years studying this is the sustained for saudi professor brian house has no doubt that climate change is playing a role it's not a matter of belief this is not some political philosophy it's not a real it's not
11:36 am
a religion it's this is this is facts it's happening it's going to get worse unless we do something now. some models predict storms may become less frequent but stronger slower and wetter experts use the accumulated cycle index to measure storms and the atlantic ocean is in the midst of its wars stretch on record despite all the evidence that climate change is a factor in making hurricanes stronger there are still those that don't believe it president trump and many powerful republicans fall into that camp but researchers say it's now time to reinforce vulnerable communities and prepare for the worst assistant professor lundahl fraud barbaric law says officials should invest in sea walls restore barrier islands and build stronger structures so we know that we have some reserves into our structures or that we need to in hate so differently something that we have to start building up on a screen ago because we know that the probability of stuff will happen in something

different stated the atlantic hurricane season begins on june the 1st but the national hurricane center's already named the 1st storm it's since weakened but if the predictions are accurate it could be a sign of things to come to gallacher al-jazeera miami florida. but weiner has decided to lift a ban on elephant hunting the government says that it's that they've increased the number in recent years that are threatening the livelihoods of small scale farmers conservationists estimate that there are around one 130000 elephants in the country will travers is the president of the born free foundation and he says he doesn't understand what buts one is trying to achieve by lifting the ban the 1st thing is to remember the parts are it's one of the wealthiest countries in sub-saharan africa we don't g.d.p. of over 800000 u.s. dollars a year it does have around $200.00 pounds but it's a down by 14 percent since 2006 and the zimbabwe story the parts
11:38 am
a lot of governments own position here is that trophy hunting will increase numbers this isn't there in spain published yet they try to hunt he will increase but most and non trophy hunting will also increase numbers so it doesn't appear to be about the money it doesn't appear to be about reducing numbers because everyone who knows anything about trophy hunting knows that that's not a population control measure so my question is what is it about outer stands that the president of what's one other documents easy wants there to be a so it's a sovereignty issue he's been very democratic he's reached out to the communities to n.g.o.s to experts in the country and has come to this decision but i think you have to recognise that while he is entirely unsuitable to manage what's one of the population in the way that he sees fit countries that import trophies are also entitled to say no they will not allow the import of elephant trophies into their

11:50 am
the main opposition party the congress is way behind their coalition is expected to win only about 82 seats also held raman reports from new delhi. he is on course to win a 2nd term as prime minister of india he arrived at his governing b.g.p. headquarters late talk thursday evening jubilant by what his party had achieved. today we witnessed citizens from every nook and corner of the country filling this beggar's hand i've banged my head before india's 1300000000 citizens. but celebrations at b j p headquarters began earlier in the day and vote counting wasn't even over yet the votes of hundreds of millions of indians were tallied and candidates and their agents are focusing on the district centers and each constituency. the election commission says the turnout was the largest in indian election history more than 600000000 people voted out of the 900000000 who are
11:51 am
eligible to take part in the 6 week election the issues a clear for some. people have voted for nationalism for the good of the country and for development work done by trust. is the only person who can fight. this is the reason only and as recently as a prime minister. this election has been one of the most divisive in recent years i think the security issue has been protected in a way that people's imagination was fixed. and then you start feeding them constantly. so it seems that in the post independence india the 1st time for the 1st time security issue has become such a big issue in india the opposition have congratulated modi many. during the campaign i said the people will decide who will rule the country and they have made a decision so firstly let me congratulate prime minister murty i must also thank my
11:52 am
party workers for putting up a tough fight a battle is of ideology and vision and the people seem to have chosen to be j.p. . for now it's a moment for the j p supporters to say. also how raman joins us now from the capital new delhi so it's been 24 hours a day. the counting started where does all that stands now. well the counting continues for the moment and we can confirm now that the election commission has said that the b j p alone is a political party of 1292 seats they are in the lead in 11 other constituencies across the country now the magic number is 272 so the b.g.p. by themselves have won another absolute majority and it's the 1st time in indian election history that a normal congress party has not just won an election but been reelected again so history in the making again and of course this is just one of the national
11:53 am
newspapers the hindu is saying of course india gives modi a high 5 when he was elected 20141 of the 1st things that i remember him saying was he wanted the public to give him a 10 year mandate we thought well he's big quite presumptuous there he's got the 10 year mandate now and he's got a lot of work ahead of him in terms of what we expect of a friday well there are 2 certain things that are going to happen one is that at some stage the cabinet will meet and they will discuss their move forward or how they will end or conclude business as such because they have to be reese warnin and then in the evening there's a formal dinner for the outgoing cabinet with the president in the middle of all of that it might be today it might be tomorrow the election commission has to finally announce and notarize the result and then all of the b j p parliamentarians that have been elected or on the verge of being elected will gather in new delhi to
11:54 am
elect who will lead them in parliament and that's foregone conclusion it's near and remotely. for us from new delhi thank you very much though. while u.s. president donald trump says he's meeting pentagon officials to discuss tensions with iran the u.s. has already sent extra warships and fighter jets to the region over the past few weeks saying it's facing unspecified threats from tehran the acting defense secretary downplayed the possibility of war with iran but strongly defended the military buildup in the gulf. war 2 risk of destruction which so. i think those are just they're common so our job is to trance is about we have a mission that is freedom of navigation. counterterrorism. security . guard. and there are reports the trumpet ministration is planning to bypass
11:55 am
a congressional ban on weapon sales to saudi arabia there is concern that u.s. secretary of state mike pompei and other senior aides want the president to be able to act without the approval of congress the proposal emerged publicly when democrat senator chris murphy criticized it on twitter i'm hearing that trump may use an obscure loophole in the arms control act and a major new sale of bombs to saudi arabia the ones they drop in yemen in a way that will prevent congress from objecting could happen this week alan fisher has more from washington d.c. . well normally under u.s. law congress is given 30 days notice before any foreign arms sales and then they can see year or nay it another appears that donald trump is going to subvert the process by using a look paul in the law and declaring the sales to saudi arabia a national emergency in this he's being pushed by secretary of state might pompey
11:56 am
or in that case the sales will go ahead no matter what and all donald trump has to do is provide congress with a letter of explanation of why he's the clear the specific seal a national emergency know there's going to be opposition to this if there is a gap between donald trump and republicans on capitol hill it certainly comes over the issue of sodium arabia you'll remember that earlier this year a bipartisan move in both the house of representatives and the senate to limit american support for the saudi led war in yemen was passed and it was only defeated when donald trump issued a very rare veto the republican senators like lindsey graham big supporter of donald trump who says he doesn't want to see any arms sales to saudi arabia until the address the issue of crime prince mohammed bin salman who he says is responsible not just for the war in yemen but also for the mark of journalists jamal khashoggi there are republican senators like marco rubio who says he wants to
11:57 am
see any details before he would be comfortable with selling weapons to saudi arabia and there certainly are many many democrats in both the house and the senate who are very very anxious at the u.s. getting involved in arms sales to saudi arabia now this is happened before but you've got to go back to the 1980 s. when the president declared a national emergency to force through arms sales in this way the president then was ronald reagan the issue was the perceived threat of iran and the weapons sales while that was to saudi arabia. well jeff stacey's served in the state department during the obama administration and he says president trump will face strong opposition if he tries to go ahead with the plan where's the emergency is the question that the people on capitol hill are asking and they are asking it loudly because not only do we have everything left over from the shoji affair we now have
11:58 am
this purported threat in iran which is highly controversial in itself for very good reasons the alleged killing of is still fresh here people want accountability for it and they also don't appreciate us munitions etc being used against civilians in yemen and there's been a very strong statement one of the strongest we've seen in the most bipartisan in the recent era of polarization against any further involvement in that conflict so let's hope that this might just be a trial balloon that the administration is floating here knowing how sensitive things are in all directions and in particular now because of the potential conflict with iran women's rights activists from saudi arabia say they're being targeted by the government speaking at a congressional panel in washington campaigners say there is fighting for human rights for women's rights i'm sorry are being tortured and often abused often without any course is happening in saudi arabia is that the definition of what is
11:59 am
a terrorist can include. apostasy can include joining us here because we are considered terrorists or you being in the same room with us is now a crime so they can accuse you of being in the same room with us thus encouraging dissent in saudi arabia and unrest and social unrest in the country so everything the so loose that we no longer know what is and isn't actually legal or illegal inside of me and i think this is deliberately done to increase this environment of fear inside the country. in libya warplanes have bombed to the offices of a breakaway faction of one of the country's 2 competing governments no one was hurt in the attack the building is used by members of the brook based house of representatives who moved to tripoli soon after the war began his attack on the libyan capital in april the country remains divided following the overthrow of gadhafi in 2011 the united nations backs the tripoli based government of national
