3:52 am
who had many of its citizens on the flight this not only suggest that selenski had to make concessions but also that russia will be a tough negotiating partner and future talks to end the fighting in eastern ukraine that fastens al-jazeera moscow. well international reaction to the prisoner swap has been overwhelmingly positive u.s. president donald trump tweeted very good news for haps a 1st giant step to peace congratulations to both countries in a statement the german chancellor angela merkel said this exchange of prisoners is a sign of hope it's worth continuing the hard work to implement the minsk accord. and it comes a day before controversial elections in moscow when voters will elect their regional parliament a number of opposition candidates have been banned from running their barring has provoked weeks of protests in which hundreds of arrests have been made and the
3:53 am
number of people have been jailed opposition leader alexei navalny is urging voters to cast the ballots for the candidates with the best chance of beating the governing party all the candidates in president putin's party are presenting themselves as independent to avoid being damaged by the united russia brand. united russia is trying to hold on to power using the bottoms of the via police for the only pillar of support that are free to allow candidates to vote in the election let alone have a fair competition and we think the only way to make this election meaningful is to turn it into a sort of referendum on the government. let's go to the bahamas now where search and rescue teams are trying to reach communities still cut off by floodwater and they bring the hurrican dory and hit emergency aid is being rushed to the island nation and it fears that the number of deaths there will rise significantly from the 43 that have been announced so far thousands of
3:54 am
people who lost everything in the storm are scrambling to leave the worst hit islands rescuers expect bodies to be uncovered as flood waters receded following the category 5 storm which is the strongest to ever hit the bahamas. after be really. what you see in the movies like those and the. clips you watch on you tube it's unreal just unreal. wellman weather apollo joins me live now from freeport in the bahamas when will we can see for example a plane in behind you tell us a little bit about where you are and what's happening there. we're outside of the freeport airport in the island of grand bahama this is one of the worst hit areas by hurricane dory and you can see behind me this is the aircraft that was washed here by by hurricane dorian because it wasn't just those strong winds remember it's
3:55 am
a category 5 hurricane it took 36 hours for this storm to make it across the island of grand bahama and to make it across the island of abaco along with those strong winds was the storm surge so this area outside the airport where we're at right now was actually under at least 2 meters of water up until just a couple of days ago so the devastation here is pretty widespread now that's one of the main challenges that search and rescue operations are faced with here in the bahamas is the floodwaters that are or have only recently begun to recede runways roadways bridges the infrastructure here very much damaged by by the by the storm itself so there are still places of the the bahamas where people haven't been reached yet another major concern is the shortages of food water medicine we have heard finally now from the world health organization a statement saying somewhere around $8000000.00 tons of food supplies have arrived in nassau they will start to be delivered to to the islands worst affected but there are islands outside of this area that have not been reached yet specially
3:56 am
places outside of the on the abaco for example just a few days ago we were in the community of marsh harbor arguably the worst hit part of the star of the bahamas by hurricane dorian the community of marsh harbor when you walking when we drove in there were people walking with just dazed looks on their faces just expressions of shock on their faces just it's very hard to describe in words what we saw at one point we were driving through through the community it's very difficult. to even say it but you could you could smell the death in the air so even though the government is saying that the official death toll so far is 43 the expectation is that it will dramatically. increase just about everyone that we've spoken to here in freeport knows someone who is dying or knows several people who are missing so we do expect that the commander magically in just a moment will tell us a little bit more about the people's reactions you were mentioning there as we said
3:57 am
earlier the bahamas had never been hit by a category 5 storm so just a little bit more about the reaction of people feel hopeful they are that you know that the aid will come and that eventually the bahamas will be able to you know i guess return to normality. absolutely it's there isn't just concern over the people that are missing the the bahamian people are truly are a resilient people everyone here has so much optimism but there is a quite a bit of desperation given the current circumstances there's an understanding that because this is an island nation and because of shortages of food shortages of water and shortages of medicine our could could dramatically make this crisis worse than it already is there are there have been announcements made that supplies of disaster relief from the international community will be forthcoming there's there's already commitments made by cruise liners for example delivering thousands
3:58 am
of bottles of water this is all desperately needed and there's another concern which is just the livelihoods of people here have been completely destroyed by this hurricane some of the folks that we've spoken to that have already evacuated say they don't plan to return to the island others that depend so much on tourism this is the bahamas this is a part of the country that is almost entirely been. dependent on tourism the impact that this storm is storm has had on the tourism industry is vast and it could be a long while before before they recover there's still no power they're still running water what we have heard is that emergency telecommunications equipment is being taken to islands like abaco which have been completely cut off from the rest of the country and only now as i mentioned yesterday when we flew into freeport did we start seeing search and rescue operations begin to take effect so there are there are still again i hate to say this but there are bodies that have yet to be recovered so the expectation from people despite the optimism over the help that's
3:59 am
on its way is that since this crisis is still far from over my let up on those joining us live now from freeport in the bahamas i know for now thank you. iran says it now has the ability to enrich uranium to a much higher level in a further blow to the 2015 nuclear deal new equipment means that they can take it to more than 20 percent way beyond the 3.67 percent limit that was actually set in the deal which the united states pulled out of in may last year natural uranium has less than one percent of the isotope used for nuclear power shown here in red it's then concentrated it using centrifuges which strip away the unwanted isotopes in grade a nuclear power plants typically need a 3 to 5 percent concentration so iran could run some of them without breaching the deal beyond 20 percent is called high enriched uranium which can be used for
4:00 am
medical and research purposes weapons grade uranium is rated at 90 percent or above but as you can see that's a relatively small extra step from 20 percent for such of our reports now from tehran on the latest technical and the political developments. another step back from the 2015 nuclear deal but a step forward for iran's nuclear program the latest phase of iran reducing its commitments further to the agreement with 6 world powers is its most serious and technical one yet. more we started lifting limitations on our research and development imposed by the deal as a link lou developments of rapid and advanced centrifuges we have the capacity to enrich uranium beyond 20 percent but we don't have any plans to do so for the time being this is where the more advanced centrifuges have already been installed as of friday the natanz nuclear facility is now capable of enriching uranium at
4:01 am
a much faster speed since the united states withdrew from nuclear path in 2013 and imposed a series of harsh sanctions.
