6:16 am
refusing to submit documents to the inquiry. well the 12 democrats who want to replace donald trump in the white house have presented a unified front calling for him to be impeached they have just wrapped up their 4th debate in ohio a battleground state that's backed the winner of the presidential vote for decades but several laws that forcing trump from office cannot be the democrats' only message they were also fiery exchanges about health care foreign policy and gun violence and john hendren is in west of all high at the debates just and held john that debates just been wrapping up today any particular candidate stand out this evening. that's right it was the 4th and feinstein is debate so far 12 democratic candidates all on the same stage the largest number on the stage at any one time so each of them was trying to break out tonight there were some standout performances bernie sanders had a heart attack 2 weeks to the day ago and he came out strong and energetic he was
6:17 am
feisty combative with some of his rivals but he also seemed that mentally acute there and you see that physically capable and that was his number one goal he has not been campaigning for these 2 weeks so that was a big performance for him senator joe biden also struck by the good president trump he he forgive me vice president former vice president joe biden struck back at president trump and some of his rivals at one point saying i'm the only one up here who's really done anything big get him bernie sanders snap back you know what else you did take it from a friend he did there at the iraq war and the disastrous financial bailout and he went on but it was elizabeth warren who probably took the most barbs the massachusetts senator has been rising steadily in polls throughout this campaign and in many polls she's overtaken by in the lead so a number of candidates struck back at her on her refusal to detail exactly how she
6:18 am
would pay for her government funded health care for all plan. and on her tax on extreme wealth they were candidates who struck her candidates who struck each other people who judge has been very civil in many of these debates and polls generally about 5th was extremely combative and feisty like all of these other candidates trying to break out of those lower ranks and move up to the top john despite all the feistiness of the divisions we've been seeing over some of the big issues health care gun control we are seeing you know a unified front when it comes to impeachment there. yes in a rare show of unity in this debate where really we expect it to narrow down afterwards and that reflects the democratic party in general there's been a growing consensus now there seem to be enough votes in the house of representatives in order to recommend impeachment formally starting the trial that would be carried out in the senate one candidate after another including moderates
6:19 am
like joe biden and amy club which are the minnesota senator to each of them came out in favor of the impeachment it least the process in many of them went on to say that donald trump should be removed from office and again that reflects a growing consensus certainly in the house of representatives but across the u.s. police have shown increasing support recently one poll showed more than a movie already in favor not just of the impeachment but also removal but that consensus is growing it was reflected here on the democratic stage tonight john hendren and west of allow higher for us watching that debate thank you very much john. i'm leaving across the atlantic now and the e.u. and the u.k. have been holding the last ditch talks to white house wrecks a deal that can be discussed at a nato summit in brussels on thursday says from the u.k. and the e.u. are attempting to reach an agreement by the end of the week ahead of persons official departure from the e.u. on october the 30 fest the e.u.
6:20 am
is brecht's and michelle obama says obstacles remain between the 2 sides but there's still potential for a day oh oh. reaching an agreement. is still possible obviously any agreement must work for anyone to all of the united kingdom and the whole of the european union let me add also that it is high time. to turn good intentions in a legal text out and how has more for. well the only thing we know for certain at the moment is that a lot of hard work has been going on is still going on to try and nail down the details of the technical details of a new deal between the u.k. and the european union to try and come up with a legally operable text that both sides can be held accountable for and accountable
6:21 am
to that can be put to e.u. leaders at that council summit on thursday optimistic sounds coming out of the european union. but we cannot be certain of anything what we know is that michel barnier the e.u. use chief breaks in negotiator is going to address e.u. embassadors on wednesday afternoon in brussels and tell them whether enough progress has been made to get a deal boris johnson is then planning to offer that to meet his cabinet here in london and shortly after that to meet his own backbench m.p.'s it is as it is as if a big announcement is going to be made the key part of the deal we believe that he's taking shape has to do with northern ireland leaving the european union's customs union along with the rest of the united kingdom in law but not necessarily in practice still having to enforce the use customs code with an economic border down the irish sea that may be
6:22 am
a deal acceptable to the european union but we believe tonight that it is not a deal acceptable to the democratic unionist party boris johnson's allies and nor to some of the heartbreaks it is on the right of his own party so a deal potentially with the e.u. but one that a british prime minister will struggle to get through this house of commons behind me haven't we all seen this story before. now votes are being counted in mozambique's general election which is testing a fragile peace deal that helped to end decades of conflict president felipe in your. party is expected to easily when a 2nd term despite a corruption scandal that's dented his popularity his main challengers are so far. now my party hopes to win big in the northern and central countryside correspondent malcolm webb has more capital. left president philippe new cities seeking a 2nd term he voted when the polls opened mozambique's council. this

6:29 am
the 1st step in the normalizing of relations between the saudis and israel. their business isn't helpful they visited through israel not palestine. the saudi visit is not about normalization not visiting the prisoner doesn't normalize relations with the prisoner. we're happy that the saudi team is visiting and playing in palestine we are not happy they came through the occupation. as for the game itself well on paper it should have been a mismatch israel's blockade of gaza since 2007 has meant there are no goals employees in this current squad saudi arabia on the other hand have played in for a world cup final told events including russia 2018 well saudi's hopes of playing in qatar 2022 will be non-existent if they produce many more performances like this the palestinians more than held their own and could have won the game later on nil nil the final score. of course i'm not happy with the result of the game we
6:30 am
want to win and to get the 3 points not only one point but in the end that's good each team has its own strengths and we can't deny that the saudi team is a strong team. all the arguments behind the staging of this match will no doubt continue the performances of the palestinian team should point to a brighter future on the pitch at least roll. with the headlines. sending a high level delegation to turkey on wednesday to seek a ceasefire northeast in syria even though president says he isn't willing to negotiate with kaddish forces meanwhile russian forces on leaving towards northern syria in an effort to fill a security void left by american troops u.s. lawmakers have introduced a resolution opposing president tanks decision to pull troops out of syria house
