previous attacks most of those killed and injured were civilians young a suddenly a man on the motorbike arrived and a huge explosion happened a lot of people heard of marty it and. the attack will be a major concern for all the presidential candidates as they campaign across afghanistan in the coming days even more worrying for the author here in kabul was the 2nd attack happening in what should be one of the most secure areas of the capital the taliban bomber managed to evade tight security surrounding the diplomatic area of the capital detonating explosives at an office of the ministry of defense and then. i heard an explosion and then dust started rising from the site of the attack and there was gunfire i scaped body parts were spread everywhere it was confer. the gunfire was actually warning shots from security forces trying

to clear the area because they feared a secondary attack. as the countdown to election day continues why defeat for the afghan government is keeping the security situation stable enough to allow voting to begin robert bride al-jazeera kabul. right a bit of developing news to tell you about out of saudi arabia the kingdom is now saying it's all supply has resumed it is back up to levels from before saturday's attack on the 2 aramco oil plants you see the news conference going on in jeddah at the moment the energy minutes. not actually the man in picture at the moment but he did make the announcement a short time ago saying the country's oil market will be fully back online by the end of the month so that's weeks away now the background of course here is that the
9:05 pm
u.s. has blamed iran for the drone strikes that crippled more than half of saudi arabia's oil production it is the hoody rebels who claimed responsibility for the attacks and they are separately saying that oil security can be achieved if the saudi led coalition stops bombing yemen. more on that story as it comes in but right now israelis voting in their 2nd general election in less than 6 months prime minister benjamin netanyahu hoping for a 5th term in office after he failed to achieve a majority also form a coalition back in april and so he called this unprecedented rerun and now is trying to gain more supporters by promising among other things to annex all settlements in the occupied west bank or from bernard smith now reporting from occupied east jerusalem. he's promised to annex the jordan valley in the occupied west bank and he's warned he may be replaced by leftists who week in israel
9:06 pm
benjamin netanyahu is facing corruption allegations and doing everything he can to win this election and try to avoid a criminal trial. the election is close i can confirm to you this morning they are very close i call them all israelis to come and vote just like me and my wife came to vote they wanted you for home good luck and thank you the prime minister's main rival benny gantz his blue and white party took 35 seats in april's election the same as netanyahu could neither was able to build a coalition that would give them 61 seats and a majority in parliament. which leaves i've a door leave of them as potential kingmaker one time friend that of netanyahu loyalist for leave a man refused to enter government with the prime minister saying but too many concessions of been made to ultra orthodox parties so netanyahu dissolved parliament you should think carefully how you will cast your vote who have a wants to see a liberal secular
9:07 pm
a unity government with the out the ultra-orthodox should stop and think for a sickened so far early voter turnout has been the highest a more than 30 years but pre-election polls still predict this vote will be as close run those the last it's time to chose that the country is split in so many different ways that it's very sad this election is for about change change that policy doug stick it's a bowl change their years of that 5 yo well i hope dead what a void for e is going to be there one backed i think it will be divided again yeah because it's it's really close this is the 1st time in israel's history that a 2nd election has been held because the largest party was unable to form a coalition the polls close at 10 pm local time in an exit poll soon after should give an early indication of the way the boating has gone and then there could be weeks or even months
9:08 pm
a political horse trading before we know who will be the next prime minister of israel burn it's mit al-jazeera in occupied east jerusalem here's the team it covering events for us in tel aviv hoda abdel-hamid to on the earth to screen she is that the headquarters of benny gantz blue and white party hodor i'll be with you shortly sounding that with harry force that had benjamin netanyahu is they could party base how long till the polls actually close less than an hour an hour come on at 10 pm local time and so we've had the latest of this stream of live broadcasts on social media coming from the prime minister benjamin netanyahu as he does everything he can to try and get his new cooed vote up as high as possible and more importantly to try to engineer and nothing of a potential right wing bloc of smaller coalition parties to take him over that magic 61 seat number that you had going to refer to and not report and just in the last couple of minutes the latest of these videos saying it's war until the last
9:09 pm
minute get on get out and vote that every vote counts wake up or we risk losing this is being netanyahu strategy for several election campaigns now very much what happened in april and it's been 8 by a lot of other political leaders in this campaign as well trying to convince his right wing base that they're on the verge of losing more importantly that he's on the verge of losing and for him of course the consequences could be much more than political if he doesn't get the kind of power that he might be able to get to try to ward off the corruption charges that he faces there is the 1st preliminary indictment hearing coming up at the beginning of next month allied to that is something which doesn't you know is now really normalized talking about the israeli palestinian but hoskins really vote in very frank terms 4 years ago 2015 he said on this day on voting day the arabs are coming to the polls in droves that sent
9:10 pm
a real shock wave through israeli politics people were amazed that he would use race in that way now he's been using it throughout the day likud says that it's been installing cameras just outside polling stations of they want to check faces to make sure there's no voter fraud going on that's been seen as intimidatory he's been messing you know at a bus station in a juice. and with a loud hailer saying that the the voting numbers in arab areas are up higher we have to come out and try to counteract that with the right wing vote so this is something that is now being entirely normalized people aren't shocked by it anymore and it's a major tactic in this campaign right up until the last minute thank you harry for certainly could headquarters in tel aviv now made at the blue and white party in order is there any hope any optimism there that things will be different this time around it is a rare opportunity to get a another shot in an election only 5 months later.
9:11 pm
well actually falcon was fear here and white party headquarters compared to the one. point i would say the tone is very subdued probably very cautious at this time . last election there were many supporters just behind me down the food. they were waving flags they were ready and they were very excited and then obviously we got these early exit polls and we so benny gantz and. let people come out and cry declare victory and then they had to retract that none of that so far we haven't seen very few supporters here what we have seen however is both benny gantz and. campaigning throughout the day going out calling on people to go and cast their ballots also you're hearing using some of these. tactics telling
9:12 pm
them that if you don't cast your ballot well then. his far right political partners will steal the democracy of israel will change the nature of the democracy in israel and they will have and also a big. corruption. charges that prime minister netanyahu would be facing very soon now your lead co-chair has also been seen on a video calling on people telling them to the turnout in tel aviv which very which where the blue and white party fared pretty well last election getting about 45 percent of the vote this time he said about an hour ago to turnout is very low and has been cooling on the residents of tel aviv to go quickly to the polling stations for those close to. the camp in
9:13 pm
tel aviv thank you. and now mon bashar a senior political analyst in london mowen we've talked about this election so many times i just wonder what the chances are of there being anything different it's only 5 months since the last vote do you feel is any thing that's changed or shifted that will make this result any different. mostly psychological i think a lot of israelis are sick and tired of benjamin at the now and i think some feel that a national unity government is not possible with binyamin at the now so while we do it we are now in the midst of this or at the final hour of this horse race and the 2 jockeys or the 2 benjamin's. really heading out there for the for the final finish i think the bets remain for many on nothing you know like the religious camp in israel like the trump administrations others like the palestinian
9:14 pm
authority and a few others within the region are betting on white them through party on unbending guns but really the horse race itself meaning the character issue between the former chief of staff and the seasoned politician who's really been in more or less indicted of course option is kind of tiring to most israelis. and yet. this is no this is not just about the horse races not just about the 2 jockeys about the 2 benjamin's this is about bigger issues for israelis themselves this is an issue about democracy about the nature of the jewish state and it is about corruption the economy but for many it is about the religiosity the theology of the israeli state how religious it is or how secular it is and if you notice even the last election that on the parties could not form
9:15 pm
a coalition under the leadership of many a minute then you know because of the secular religious split i think that splits remains to be the case and i would even argue further and say that the high turnout is because the election is so tribal. and tribalism is even a bigger motivators for people to fight to to vote even national security for that matter as you talk about turnout and how how do does or how do arab votes figure in this election. well it's going to be important on a number of levels level number one if they are able to get more than the 10 that they got last time and more like the 13 that they got in 2015 i think they thought this might actually affect the number of seats that nothing else knows they could party would be able to get because in the end of the this is the pie and the more parties get pieces out of the pie of course the lesser means for the 2 bigger
9:16 pm
parties and already we are projecting less votes for both likud and white and blue party than the last time around and i think the if the arabs are able to pull together and to have this larger turnout translate into maybe 13 seats they would also become the 3rd largest party in israel and if they do or the 3rd largest a coalition if you want israel and if they do and israel is forced to go to a national unity government meaning likud and white that group party going in to gather in some form of a coalition then the arab coalition will be the official opposition party and when you are the official opposition party you are actually entitle the whole host of privileges and rights including a monthly meeting with the prime minister and security briefs. be very curious
9:17 pm
to see the next prime minister of israel sharing security briefs with the heads of the arab list or the other coalition is or i think they will probably change the law before they ever shared any such intelligence with the palestinians in israel the polls closing in israel in about 45 minutes time more from owen bashara to come later on. and there's more on this news hour as well as the clouds of smoke spread into malaysia thousands of firefighters are battling to bring in tunisia as far as fires under control. almost angry about the profits that they said. to ask us to give give give what striking workers south america's biggest carmaker really think about their employees and sport we will hear from roger federer who says he is still hopeful of winning the one major title that is so far eluded.
9:18 pm
the u.k.'s highest court has begun hearings to decide whether prime minister forrest johnson broke the law when he shut down parliament for 5 weeks more on this one in london a new center here is for the city. by so much kemal yes a lawyer for the u.k. government has told the supreme court that boris johnson was insightful to probe parliament even for political reasons but those arguing against the suspension say it is the biggest abuse of power by a prime minister for 50 years john holl reports now from central london. the barricades that shifted temporarily the prevailing breaks in battle is arrived at the supreme court we have the force to appeals one from england and wales a lunchroom. they both involve the same as you. whether it was lawful for the prime minister advised her majesty to authorize the provocation parliament order in
9:19 pm
council at issue whether the court should stay out of politics as the english high court had ruled or a scottish judges decided last week whether the courts should step in when the powers of government are used for purposes other than those for which they were intended our case is that when the prime minister exercises he's admittedly removed discretionary power to advise her majesty geisha it is an improper purpose for him to be motivated by and wish to avoid armament you control over the policies of his government and we know. that the parliament may be proved for a variety of reasons at blessing for all as much as formal. and sasan in the. parliament is not in any sense innocent
9:20 pm
and to the pepper nation when you mean speech the supreme court's decision when it comes could have far reaching consequences for an unwritten constitution in this country that relies heavily on legal precedent for a government that may yet decide it wants to prorogue parliament again and for parliament itself there are many many m.p.'s very keen to get back to work as the clock ticks down towards briggs's day on october 31st and if the supreme court were to confirm the scottish judges finding that boris johnson lied to the queen over his reasons for suspending parliament they'd be heavy pressure on the prime minister to resign fundamentally this case is really quite simple it's about this proposition the government admits that parliament doesn't get control whether it's suspend it. and government says courts can't control it either and that is
9:21 pm
us all right king proposition an absolutely striking proposition and the supreme court's going to have found difficulty accepting it they are based god democracy where that's not a popular view among sections of the crowd outside the court. 6 directs it tensions on display are ugly combative divisive straight trial no decision look a supreme court is going to change that jonah hill al-jazeera london cut. well the new leader of the u.k.'s liberal democrat says her party faces the fight of its life to stop the country from leaving the e.u. jo swensen says she'll council breaks that entirely if chosen as prime minister she was speaking at a parties on your conference in bournemouth from where reports. it's hard to remember a liberal democrat conference this buoyant this confidence this purpose tens of thousands of new members 7 new m.p.'s who have defected from rival parties and
9:22 pm
a new young leader on a mission. we must stop breaks that letter and really you are crystal clear a liberal democrat majority government will revoke article 50 on day one elite because there is no brakes that that will be good for our country. isn't it anti democratic to council a referendum result and council breaks it some say so even if you liberal democrats i cannot vote for you now because i voted to leave. but brecht's it has put the u.k. in charted political waters norms are being discarded left right and center by parties here and joyce winston has decided that absolute clarity is a vote when there is no limit to my ambition for our party and our country and to day i am standing here i'd say you're
9:23 pm
a candidate for prime minister thanks britain is headed for an election before the end of the year so m.p. sam jima who's just joined the party from the conservatives says you can't call a policy and he democratic when it's about to be put to the people it's not extreme if the country votes for a liberal democratic government then that is their money 1st and that is not extreme at all and is no more extreme than what we potentially have today which is a minority conservative government trying to implement a new deal that nobody voted for and that's a view endorsed by members. friend was a democratic a self i think was a party politics and a mistake revoking article 50 should they get the mandate through general election absolutely because the mandate would be that the consequence is that the lib dems lost experience of power was near extinction in the country next voted but that was when they controversially shared government is
9:24 pm
a. big cameron's conservatives can the liberal democrats win the election expected in november or december well probably not they are still 3rd in the polls behind the conservatives and labor but recent years have shown us that the polls are often fallible anything can happen. said she was going to coalition with either boris johnson or labor leader jeremy called him she's in this to win challenge how does he run. and i'll have more from your place in this right now though it's back to come up ok see you later felicity now the u.s. house judiciary committee is hearing another round of. testimony to see whether there is enough evidence to impeach president donald trump the president's former campaign manager has been testifying and heidi has been watching in washington what's been said heidi. i'm also we're hearing from corey lewandowsky who as you said is a former trump campaign manager he's also
9:25 pm
a continued confidant of the president and really he hasn't said much that's because the white house counsel has told him that he is limited by executive privilege to only answer questions relating to the moeller report now lewandowsky does count as the 1st official witness under the house's impeachment inquiry and so this is a big deal for the democrats who are hoping that lewandowsky would shed some light on one specific episode in the white house in which he was instructed by the president to threaten to fire the tourney general jeff sessions if he did not work to limit or stop the russian vest a geisha and he did not elaborate on that moment though this is what lewandowsky said during his opening statement i'd like to start off by expressing my hope that today's hearing will be productive in revealing the truth both to the committee and to the american people for the record and as you likely know i've already testified
9:26 pm
before congress on 3 separate occasions so lank with the staff of the special counsel's office there too my time and answers were given freely and without hesitation i think in one form or another i've already answered questions for well over 20 hours so now here i am before the house judiciary committee to answer the same questions again. i'm just saying reaction from donald trump heidi on twitter who has said such a beautiful opening statement by coralie korea thank you cory so that's what he thinks just a further question for you heidi about where this is actually go and you know it's really baby baby steps very early stages of anything involving impeachment isn't it i mean there would be a long way to go. yeah and you know there's a lot of confusion surrounding that question come all because really democrats aren't clear where they want to take this because they're fighting against competing political interests for the party you have the democratic base that is
9:27 pm
really hoping for impeachment proceedings to begin and then you have the moderates who are really unfollowing underline of the house speaker nancy pelosi who want to protect their seat and she says if they vote to begin impeaching the president really there's nothing to gain because they can lose their seats and in the end as we all know republicans still control the senate and trump will not be removed from office so at this point democrats are really standing at a spot where they need to make a decision soon the majority of their caucus have said they would welcome officially launching impeachment proceedings but they have yet to take that measure come on ok i get your castro in washington thank you. still ahead feel on this news hour the innocent victims of a growing reliance on dads families left homeless in the drive to provide power to india. and in sport the footballer who produced rather of the top performance of this is just here in training the whole we'll have that and the rest of the sports
