presence early in the day with restrictions on trains and buses to the airport a number of minor arguments cropped up near the terminal the planned disruption failed to happen the testers shut down the airport for 2 days last month the get go full on has more from hong kong. this time the police and security were prepared last time they came well into the chaos well after protesters had paralyzed the airports and the transportation linking to police complete train change their strategy this time they were here at the airport hours before protesters were due they were here in large numbers and they also instigated stop and searches at young people that they suspected of being protestors and that's basically because the protesters to change their tactics they called on those who were willing to take part in the movement to come to the airports and try to blend in as travelers to tell them not to wear their customary black shirts masks and helmets and even maybe takes
a luggage and printout fake boarding passes so that they could be seen as legitimate travelers so in response what the police has been doing is searching anyone that the suspected of not being at the airport with a valid reason to be at the airport and they've also set up checkpoints at various tunnels and highways and train stations that would take people to the airports and conducted searches there anyone they suspect of being a protester they turned away earlier there was a standoff between protesters and police at the transit station it in bronze there . well this is normally a very busy shopping mall it's very close to hong kong international airport which of course has been in the crosshairs of protesters once again on saturday the protesters are angry because they've been trying to get to the airport to try to disrupt operations which of course they managed to do a week ago and also last month leading to the cancellation of almost
a 1000 flights well on saturday they were largely school today in that exercise because the police were out in very heavy numbers in here in tone show me a very busy shopping mall on a saturday afternoon we've had standoff between protesters and the police all off. the nude you had 2 brief dispersal operations by the police a number of people have been detained in a how many but it's remind as i say that even normally the 3 for the most right this has become very volatile on the more protests are planned on sunday looting one outside the u.s. consulate that's a 1st look at the moment the focus could differ tester's remains the area around hong kong's international airport. how it can do and has not been known to have killed at least $43.00 people in the bahamas the total is expected to rise because hundreds of violence has remain unaccounted for the devastation is cause of being caused by light being likened to a tsunami with entire neighborhoods flattened the focus is on getting food safe
drinking water and shelter for victims my old apollo has the latest from 5 point. we're standing in woods left of a family home in freeport grand bahama and i want to give you a sense of the destruction here that line that you can see on that wall back there that's how high the water got several meters and if you walk around this house you really get a sense of the power of this storm hurricane dorian remember a category 5 when gusts upwards of 350 kilometers per hour a storm surge that came in several kilometers inland i mean the level of destruction here is just about as bad as hurricane damage gets everything that we're seeing here in this debris is washing machines furniture everything and it want to show you how bad it is outside it gets even worse we have to be very careful where we walk in here there's still a lot of mud a lot of debris the structure of this home is actually not very good so we want to be very careful here but look at the scent look at look at the destruction out here
just debris everywhere there's power lines there's telephone poles there's people's entire livelihoods just lying out here in the street and the big concern right now apart from loss of life apart from the efforts of search and rescue crews looking for the people that are still missing are the shortages food water medicine all of this this crisis continues to unfold and it could still get worse without immediate action from the international community and weather warnings are in place in canada as having condoning makes its way up the u.s. coast to nova scotia it's expected to make landfall there on saturday as a category 100 can at least 4 people were killed in the u.s. and more than 200000 with electricity many are still dealing with the impacts of flooding in north and south carolina and the guy who is in charleston south carolina. well hurricane dorian has finally moved off the u.s. east coast after briefly making landfall in north carolina and the outer banks
there is taking a north east course that takes it away from all the states that were in danger for so many days remember the storms lots of for almost 2 weeks since it 1st formed about 200000 homes in north and south carolina have lost power they're expected to get it back fairly quickly because there was no damage to the infrastructure of a basically a hurricane during after spending days crawling out the u.s. east coast to spend almost everybody there was no damage in florida not in georgia very minor damage here in south carolina or north carolina pretty much dodged a bullet as well so the emergency services working on restoring power there are still warnings in place in places like virginia but ultimately the storm is now headed to canada or nova scotia where it's expected to hit landfall as a category one storm in about 2 days. ok let's go to the weather and here's kevin kevin it looks as though from from what we've been seeing that this is this storm isn't just going in and heading everything and then going out again it's bouncing its way up the east coast and that's great like we just were just talking we're
talking about almost 7 landfalls coming up 6 landfalls was a no it was an excuse me and cape hatteras that was a 6 landfall the 7th landfall is going to be in new nova scotia there could possibly be an 8th landfall after that newfoundland canada so yeah it's not it's because the storm has made landfall in stayed in land where it would die out it's come back into the open waters into the warm waters so that's been the big problem with this of course we've been talking about the storm for 14 days now and we're going to be talking about it for another few days as it does go up towards canada but i want to show you some video that has come out of here from parts of cape hatteras they had some pretty good storm surge across that low lying area of the cape now these are the outer islands of north carolina they're fairly low and the water does go over it very easily and you can see here not only that but they were dealing with some very gusty winds. hurricane force winds as well widespread proud power outages across much of that area the storm is now making its way very quickly just off the eastern seaboard now the carolinas much better the big problem now is
we're talking a lot of problems for parts of cape cod massachusetts that is that little arm this swings out from parts of massachusetts they're nantucket martha's vineyard as well winds right now 140 kilometers gusting higher as well as moving quite quickly towards the northeast at 41 kilometers per hour now the big problem for nova scotia over the next day is going to be this we're going to be seeing a one meter storm surge as it makes its way it's going to make landfall just to the east of how effects but still cause a lot of problems across much of that area gusting up to about $150.00 and they do expect to see 200 millimeters of rain across that area so we'll keep we'll keep watching this tomorrow as well as into monday back to you still ahead on al-jazeera so near and yet so far in india loses contact with the spacecraft before touchdown . art insult an exhibition of nazi design opens in the netherlands.

well india's $140000000.00 mission to the moon is called shandor young to the main craft as an orbiter which ms mapping the lunar surface 100 kilometers above the moon lander called they come after an indian scientist separated from the orbiter on monday it was descending towards the unexplored south pole when contact was lost victim was meant to deploy a robotic rover to collect lunar samples india would have been only the 4th nation to land on the moon after the u.s. the soviet union and china if the mission would be a success i don't call her has more from you debbie. there is a palpable sense of disappointment in india as many stayed up late in the night to watch the landing of the moon lined up but in the last few seconds that contact was lost chief of india space research organization adelia said that the last 15 minutes of full of terror and terrifying they indeed were up but why that is
disappointment that is also sympathy for the scientists who are undertaking such an endeavor and scientists believe that even though it has failed the data has so far been collected would be useful in finding out why it's failed and what can be learnt at the end of it from this exercise sympathies also that because this is a very cost effective mission the indian government spent $150000000.00 that's about half of what was used in producing hollywood movie the average us so how did succeed it would have been a lesson for scientists all over the world to find out how these missions can be conducted in a cost effective manner other than that the stated mission stated goal of the mission was to research lunar soil to take the images of lunar soil and send them to the earth in the last such mission india india had tried to search for water and this time the focus was on lunar soil it has failed bot prime minister modi has said very reassuring what are the scientists implying that there will be
a next time. monica is the editor in chief of space dot com he says despite the setback india already has plans for further missions. everything seemed to be going really really well until the final moments they got about 2 clinton kilometers above the lunar surface when they lost contact with their probe they don't know if it crashed or maybe redirected itself to a secondary landing site they're hoping to figure that out in the next few hours and days but it was you know definitely really tense in india's mission control and a big disappointment after a mission that's gone really really well over the last month to reach the moon there are folks still listening for signals but not having any signal from the spacecraft nasa deep space network with antennas around the world also lost contact they weren't hearing anything from the spacecraft that's not the best of signs it is possible that the spacecraft might have been able to land itself and just lost contact you know they have their orbiter in orbit around the moon nasa has an
orbiter as well you can be sure that they'll be looking for that but not hearing from the spacecraft during that critical period isn't a great sign india has resolved to keep at it to to keep listening and in the keep shooting for the moon they do have plans for a 3rd mission later on. britain's prime minister is accusing opponents of making an extraordinary political mistake in the fusing his calls for snap elections next month and in another setback the upper house of parliament has approved new legislation requiring boris johnson to ask the e.u. for a break that extension rather than leave without a deal and i hear what has more from london. he's been struggling to control parliament and even hundreds of kilometers from westminster boris johnson wasn't having an easy time of it britain's prime minister was in scotland to announce extra funding per bomber's he hasn't got the election he wants yet both photo

make sure that this extension is in place before they agree to anything it's been quite a week the prime minister johnson so. on thursday his only brother resigned as an m.p. a minister saying he was torn between family loyalty and the national interest his new. has been obliterated to expel $21.00 m.p.'s trying to stop and breaks it and a bill to stop the country crashing out of the e.u. is going through parliament there's been a small bit to put the government now with the high court in london ruling that the decision to suspend parliament put 5 weeks is legal the saying we can politics is a long time has never felt more appropriate boris johnson is a man under pressure to deliver the promises he's made and keep so making they may not be able to keep a general election seems likely but the electorate is wary of rexx it and they would al-jazeera in westminster. wildfires have forced the evacuation of several
