6:00 pm
and the uprising coming soon on al jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello from doha everyone i'm come out santa maria this is the news hour from. a sea of people in hong kong the hundreds of thousands mark 6 months since the anti-government demonstrations began also in the news at least $43.00 people killed during a fire in one of the oldest markets in the indian capital. really just going to sing why a group of indigenous alaskans are fleeing their ancestral land as crumbles beneath them. and in sport abby raises admitted he was overweight and out of shape for his
6:01 pm
rematch with anthony joshua reclaimed his heavyweight title belts with the points win over ruiz and saudi arabia. just a little after 11 pm in hong kong where protest leaders say 100000 people have marched through the city in a show of anger and frustration they are demanding from their leaders greater democratic freedoms and human rights this march the culmination of 6 months of widespread protests now police did approve sunday's event but they warned they wouldn't tolerate a repeat of recent violent demonstrations in fact just before the march began police despite the handgun and some ammunition they said were recovered during a raid they said those weapons would have been used to create chaos during the march let's go to adrian brown in hong kong for us as we say adrian getting into the later hour was a lot of people have gone home but goodness me
6:02 pm
a lot were out on the streets today as well. what we got today was a flavor a reminder of what this protest movement was like when it began 6 months ago powerful peaceful and that's the way it largely was on sunday there was a little bit of vandalism a few mainland owned banks and shops were attacked by a radical fringe of this protest movement but that shouldn't be shouldn't we shouldn't sort of get the impression that this was you know like previous protests which of often ended in in serious violence this was largely peaceful as you can see behind me the center of hong kong is basically back to normal it's just after 11 pm at night here the police are now cleared away the last of the barricades that protesters have have disappeared into the night now the organizers of this march say that this was the last chance for the chief executive of hong kong kerry lamb to see to their demands remember they're asking not just for universal suffrage but
6:03 pm
also an independent commission of inquiry into what they say are police actions during the past 6 months what we've got of course on sunday was a further reminder that the voice of protest in hong kong is far from diminished. it began peacefully on june the 9th with a march against a bill for an extradition deal with china and the protest movement might well have ended then if hong kong's chief executive kerry had heeded their demand. absolutely i had succeeded with the withdrawal of the bill to safeguard our freedom nothing would have happened. never saw him self as a front line activist but that's what he's become he's been arrested and forced to leave home. i told my dad we're going out to fight for the rights we deserve we had a big fight and after that he said move out move out if you don't want to stay at
6:04 pm
home anymore. benson was also there when protesters smashed their way into the heart of hong kong's government the debating chamber of the legislative assembly many wearing the hard hats and face masks that have become symbols of this leaderless movement. as the long hot summer rolled on the air became more toxic. it was now. many in white chasing and beating those in black the color of the protest movement. tara. tara terrorism aided by foreign hands is how beijing defined it after its liaison office in hong kong was attacked and defaced. mainland owned businesses were also targeted. as were transport links subway stations were vandalized and forced to shut tunnels were closed. and thousands of flights canceled after protesters occupied the
6:05 pm
international airport arrivals lounge chinese leaders have repeatedly warned they would send in the people's liberation army to restore order yet that still hasn't happened they fear that if they work mobilize the people's liberation army garrison in hong kong than china will lose face because. of chinese rule. they have not won the hearts and minds in hong kong police figures reflect a society tearing itself apart at least 2 deaths more than $10000.00 tear gas canisters fired and almost $6000.00 arrests. more fatalities seem possible after students turned a university campus into a fortress the fiery standoff with police becoming a defining moment of the unrest in spite of the violence local elections went ahead with voters sending
6:06 pm
a clear message of support to those agitating for greater democracy a few days later there was another setback for china's leaders u.s. president donald trump signed into law a bill aimed at protecting human rights in hong kong and punishing those deemed responsible for suppressing them. adrian let's just talk big picture now that we are as we say marking this 6 months the protesters got the extradition bail removed which was a big victory but other than that what would you say that really achieved in this time and what's left on their list of demands. well they have 5 demands and those principle demands really are universal suffrage and also that independent commission of inquiry into police action during the past 6 months they allege widespread brutality by the police but most of all they won't carry a lamb to listen to them they don't feel that the embattled chief executive hong
6:07 pm
kong has been doing that they say they've heard her say that she's just and patiently to them but what they want is action they are impatient for something to happen but the problem is you can't just have universal suffrage overnight that takes time but the problem is these people are getting more and more impatient one of the real sort of perplexing questions i think for the last few months is why china hasn't intervene because china has warned repeatedly that it was prepared to do that but in the end that regionally that really sort of amounted to nothing more than bluster i think president xi jinping has realized that if he did send the pillay into hong kong and that would end hong kong special status and china of course has a great deal invested in hong kong and if that special status ended then china would lose an awful lot of money we've got another reminder kemal of the importance of hong kong to china just a few weeks ago when ali baba $1.00 of the biggest corporations in china decided to
6:08 pm
float on the hong kong stock market now the reason for that is of course there's no other stock market in asia that could handle a flotation of that size but nevertheless it was another important reminder of the importance of hong kong to china and also let's forget if china. did intervene militarily it's still possible unlikely i think that that would be a tacit recognition the china's leaders have failed in their bid to win hearts and minds since the handover 22 years ago thank you adrian brown in hong kong the thoughts now of staved sang who is the director of the china institute of the science university of london he expects the protest in hong kong to only continue over the coming months he told has had change in terms of nature and focused from this summer when it all started in june
6:09 pm
it was about the n.t. is about the extradition you now deportation is really not about the extradition bill it is about governance in hong kong how the police behave and whether hong kong can have democratic accountability and nest those are being met. isn't a big issue any longer beijing is not going to make the concessions the protesters will continue to protest we already seemed then going back to the streets trying to send a clear message to the government in hong kong and in beijing to get them to go and work or a political solution and one in 10 years from press of force and then you also have the government in hong kong led by the chief executive who is frankly politically illiterate and doesn't understand what needs to be done and and does not have the
6:10 pm
courage to do what it takes to bring a political solution so this will continue for a few more months i think. let's have a look at what's coming up for you on this news hour the 1st case of polio in malaysia and more than 25 years and what that means for the global eradication efforts. was. also on the search for migrants and refugees off the coast of mauritania and in sport russian slaves waiting to find out if their country will be banned from international events. before all that though a fire in india's capital which has killed at least 43 people it tore through one of the oldest markets and burned down a factory where some of new delhi's poorest residents were sleeping it is the worst fire in the city in more than 2 decades its report from mohamad. the blaze
6:11 pm
broke out while many were still asleep in an agile monday in the old quarter of delhi and he was suffocated by smoke as they slept. police and firefighters try to save dozens of factory workers but for some it was a ready too late crowds gathered watching as the smoke arose from the multi-story building and connecting sites. some people were sleeping in the factory and they didn't wake up it was a short circuit there was a fire and 2 buildings with a common staircase. people were taken to hospital in any way possible before ambulances arrived at the scene. the factory is close to one of the city's largest markets the narrow streets made it more difficult for emergency services to fight the fire and reach the injured better method to do it all but we have rescued 52 people so far we got a call at 522 this morning and deployed 4 fire engines and then later sent 35150
6:12 pm
firefighters are involved in the operation the rescue people have been sent to host . the operation is underway and we believe a few people are still inside the building more than 18000000 people live in delhi it's one of the world's most densely populated cities the city has struggled to enforce modern fire safety codes earlier this year a fire swept through a hotel killing 17 people. the next day a fire broke out at a card factory. as emergency services searched the wreckage the government says they will be a full investigation into the cause of the fire mohammed al jazeera. in new delhi where it's just coming up at a quarter to 9 in the evening just an update from you 1st of all on the situation as far as rescue and recovery goes.
6:13 pm
well the police and to their rescue operation pretty early in the day they said that they had rescued over 60 people and 43 people had died in there just the injured 2 to 3 different hospitals now the latest development is that the police has actually detained the owner of this factory and that they've also says that the owner did not apply for anything fire clarence's he did not have any fire clearances and when they inspected the building after the fire was put out to they found that safety equipment which is mandatory was also not found in this building we also spoke to several people around the area where the fire took place in these says that there are many such workshops and small factories which operate in this area and we already know that services factories operate across daily in many areas and they said that they don't know of any workshop or any small factory that actually has the required permits and said that this continues to be a big problem that being that residential areas are converted into commercial areas without proper authorization here i wonder if you can give us
6:14 pm
a little more context to that for people who haven't been to new delhi you know just seeing some of these pictures what strikes me in regina said in her report as well as the the very narrow street where a very crowded overcrowded it looks like as well and also i mean the fact that it's a lot of the poorest residents of the city you appear. not is correct many of these factories actually are in water would be defined as open slums these are very congested areas very tidy and that of course makes it difficult. for them to be accessed in the firefighters did say that the feast of those days in putting the fire out today because of that reason now these people who come here come from poor states from across the country they come here because they don't have enough work back home so they basically have to live off whatever their employers offer them here. they come along with their family members and friends in their villages they all live in side the factory under the same roof
6:15 pm
where they work that is because they cannot afford an apartment for get an apartment it can only afford a room in the city because their rent rates are exorbitant so what ends up happening is that these people are being exploited they live in these urban slums inside a room sometimes $510.00 or 12 of them and the safety measures have not paid any sort of importance to by building owners and by the factory owners so that sort of all comes together and makes these situations dangerous as one expert that i was speaking to earlier in the day says that these are disasters really waiting to happen. bringing the story together for us from new delhi thank you to iraq where the parliament is holding an emergency meeting to discuss the escalation of violence in the past few days 96 people have been killed since the beginning of october in the city of nasiriyah alone there seen some of the worst bloodshed against demonstrators simona 14 has met survivors and protesters who say
6:16 pm
they have been tortured by security forces. hospital warrants in their sleep remain full after security forces opened fire on protesters last week in the intensive care unit this demonstrator who was shot in the head clings on to life prayers are all his family has left after doctors declared him politically dead the lucky ones if they can be called that recover from non-fatal gunshot wounds the flags they carried defiantly penned to their hospital beds 17 year old safe says all he wanted was a homeland instead he got a bullet in his leg and what door were there when they started shooting we were treated as we ran one guy next to me fell down i couldn't just leave him but when i attempted to carry him i was also shot and fell and the 3rd one who came to help us or so i fell on me. video shows the moment of the attack the government has issued
6:17 pm
an arrest warrant against a senior security force commander and promised an investigation. that that there is an investigative committee formed for this purpose at the highest levels and for sure the people in charge of the investigation will bring those responsible to account and they will be punished by the law but the victims' relatives want more i want the government to change i don't want this government i demand my son's rights what is his guilt her son safe was shot in the stomach neither the violence nor the bullets that remains lodged in his hip are enough to silence him the 22 year old has no stable job and no hope for a better future than they killed me a long time ago i'm dead whether or not i go out to demand my rights i don't have anything i'm dead because of the situation wherein i don't feel alive. the 3 has been rocked by violence many times since u.s. troops invaded 16 years ago but iraqis say they are suffering unprecedented suppression now hundreds have been temporarily detained since protests began
6:18 pm
october 1st this activist says he was lurched to a meeting by intelligence officers who then arrested him. i got a call from someone it was an unknown number he said i'm so and so we have supplies for your tent and we want you to take it to your tent specifically for your tent he was tortured and interrogated for 16 hours his body still bears marks of electrocution and then x. ray shows a fractured rib who. they call it an investigation but it's not an investigation it's torture they beat being gave me electrical shocks in every part of my body. he told me to confess i asked him what can i confess he asked who do you belong to what is your organization who supports you do you have foreign sides behind you i said i don't have anything like the bulk of those arrested he will soon released on
6:19 pm
bail but many believe the use of violence is likely to continue the problem that we have use the government by other side of they call them party the problem there is theoretical type of investigation. but without any result the crackdown has stoked fear among demonstrators that the same time feeling more anger the people of macedonia have seen too much and lost too many to simply return to normal life seem wonderful team al-jazeera now a city of. 3 saudi soldiers have been killed in fighting near the yemeni border that's coming from the saudi news agency which says it happened in the southern region yemen's hurt the rebels have previously launched attacks in the area the saudi u.a.e. coalition's been fighting the there for more than 4 years. israel's carried out air strikes in the gaza strip
6:20 pm
a number of hamas sites were targeted but no one was hurt hours earlier 3 rockets were fired from gaza to wardes southern israel last month remember there was a 2 day flare up in violence which led to the deaths of 34 palestinians before a ceasefire was agreed and. the u.s. defense secretary says washington will take precautions to ensure the safety of its military bases marcus made those comments following a gun attack at a naval base in florida on friday a saudi national named mohammed saeed granny was shot dead or he shot dead 3 students at the aviation school opera for he was killed himself 10 saudi citizens are being questioned in connection with the attack course we extend our condolences to all the families affected by it and touched by it and our military community downer but no i i can't say it's terrorism at this time i think we need to let the investigators the f.b.i. do its work and tell us give us the facts and we'll move from there. and in addition to that u.s. president donald trump is saying saudi arabia is deeply concerned about the attack
6:21 pm
but with the king of saudi arabia. they are devastated really arabia we're finding out what took place whether it's one person or a number of people. will be involved in taking care of family and loved ones feel very strongly very very devastated by what happened what the. academic mustards when he says the trump white house has been working to separate this attack from its relationship with the saudi government. this is the trump administration style of reaction to any event the saudi arabia is involved and. we saw such thing previously how you know how to. basically describe saudi arabia in a you know in a very you were selected words avoiding. we have also to remember
6:22 pm
that on other level did i actually use a very diplomatic words in criticizing not the criticizing i would say undermining the way how. can the man himself in a lot of remarks he made but in when it comes to that this matter in particular from them you know the 1st minute it was a clear that he was defending the saudi government he was reading the statement from concerned man in the cabinet meeting his his his the part of secretary of state actually repeating this on twitter so there is sort of defending and isolating this event from the saudi leadership. now some of colombia's biggest artists are taking part in a concert in support of the recent downturn government protests there demonstrators remain angry at president even dukas plans for economic reforms and wanted to do more to tackle corruption and police violence his own son drove his life for us in
6:23 pm
bogota bring us up to date with what things are like that status on the. welcome as you can see behind me is one of 3 fix the stages a mobile musical truck that's moving through both tasmania having you know from the center of the city to the north for days precedented truly way of protesting of demonstrating this support for the growing strike here and now colombia 44 different parties. participating it's 10 am in the morning here they've been playing music since 8 am we understand that there is a major demonstration moving from the center and stopping at each. stage is and this seems to go well with a strike that it's unprecedented here in colombia that has been.
6:24 pm
overwhelmingly peaceful throughout the 19 days of demonstrations that we've covered except for the 1st couple of days since things have been absolutely peaceful almost 55th even so a concert like this one seems to go a well with what this with that with these demonstrations that have been led mostly by young people. try to expose to the rest of the country but they also remain unshakable in their commitment to demand changes from their government from this government. and demanding that even ducasse starts negotiating directly with the leader. the strike both the union leaders and student leaders on a list of 13 demands that they have this hasn't happened yet and as you can see 19 days into this protest rallies and demonstrations continue both formal like this
6:25 pm
one that have been organized and spontaneous ones that are happening throughout the city so this is what's happening here in colombia there's really no precedent for it then people remain energized and i think president took it will have to respond in a different way because even if we're getting close to the biggest holiday season here in colombia people seems to be keen on continuing blocking roads on a daily basis continuing their demonstrations. on a sunday or robbie as he was the update from bogota thank you. 22 bodies have been recovered after a flooding in western uganda that's according to the red cross toronto rain battered parts of the country on the border with democratic republic of congo from saturday night into sunday morning at least 20 others were killed by the floods and mudslides earlier in the week. gambian president is promising action against people traffickers after dozens of his country's citizens drowned off the coast of mauritania they were trying to reach spain's canary islands at least 85 survived

6:36 pm
president donald trump halted those meetings in september following the killing of a u.s. soldier now he's hoping for a solution before the 2020 presidential election the support from tony berkeley in kabul. when president trump abruptly canceled the talks of the taliban in september he said it was because of the killing of a u.s. soldier he said the talks were dead but many believe it was because it was felt the u.s. was giving away too much or too little but with the resumption of talks in doha observers say they are starting where they left off with no change one thing is for short the u.s. led coalition the united states of america is very keen to put and to disprove that was started long back there had 9 rounds of talks in 2018 in 2019 and perhaps this is the time where it needs to be done and dusted the afghan government has been sidelined from the previous year long dialogue because the
6:37 pm
taliban refuses direct talks but president ash afghani's government bolstered by a series of military successes is quietly optimistic that now the talks will lead to a place at the negotiating table few months ago. was an defense position . of position and. we took the money district from taliban we're doing much better in the hay with that is too important and one. ceasefire one of. both of these demands have been rejected by the taliban in the past but president trump talked optimistically about a cease fire during a visit to u.s. troops in afghanistan in november where he also met the afghan president asked for afghani taliban wants to make a deal and we're meeting with them and we're saying it has to be a cease fire they want to do is useful but now they do want to do
6:38 pm
a ceasefire i believe would probably work. but so far the taliban has not responded to that claim the afghan army with u.s. air support has been taking territory recently but the taliban still controls more than 50 percent of the country it's unlikely the taliban will agree to a cease fire before there's a definitive signed agreement for a u.s. troop withdraw it's still in a strong position and a cease fire is a valuable bargaining chip it won't give away easily afghanistan has been in political deadlock since his presidential elections 3 months ago the results are still not been released because of allegations of widespread vote rigging and fraud that is unlikely to help the peace process the taliban has said the war is now about time and money and it has the time president trump is keen to reduce the financial burden and bring the troops home and he wants that done before next year's presidential election for such a complicated issue that may be an overly ambitious time frame tony berkeley

al-jazeera kabul. a 3 month old baby boy in malaysia has been diagnosed with polio an incurable disease that can cause paralysis this is the 1st case reported there since 1992 in fact malaysia had been declared polio free in the year 2000 the vaccination rates in some areas dropped below 95 percent and that's allowed the disease to reemerge it comes months after the neighboring philippines reported its 1st polio case in 26 years despite these setbacks though the global effort to eradicate polio through vaccination has been highly effective infections have dropped 99.9 percent since the program began in 1988 heidi lawson is the director of the vaccine confidence project and told us even small pockets of unvaccinated populations can cause the disease to spread widely. when we see a case like the one in malaysia it exposes areas that don't have enough vaccination
6:40 pm
to prevent the spread so it's it's absolutely important that children who are not vaccinated in malaysia and frankly in nearby countries this particular strain is related to the strain and the caisson in the philippines so these things travel so it's really the only way to stop it in its tracks is to really make sure everyone's vaccinated vaccines are very related to government they're provided regulated sometimes mandated by government so if you're a minority are marginalized group with any issues with the government you might be a bit suspicious. which in the case of vaccines i would think that it's such a public health issue that that would come before politics but it doesn't all the time sometimes its concerns about safety the safety of the vaccine because people hear rumors or sometimes there are there are some very small risks and sometimes
6:41 pm
things do happen with vaccines so it's important to reassure the public that they understand how important it is to take them to prevent the spread of disease. well after centuries of living on their ancestral land rising river levels of forced a group of indigenous alaskans to just abandon their homes climate changes triggered stronger storms causing the land to crumble away it's been to the town of new talk to learn of the financial and emotional toll of finding a new place to live. 2000 years ago the you pick people began sheltering in the embrace of the ningaloo river to endure alaska's winters for millennia the water brought food and life but now it brings destruction. so our girl rises for more this year. albertine a charles was born in the village of new talk like her ancestors before her but the
