8:01 pm
sink. and why a group of indigenous alaskans are fleeing their ancestral land as it crumbles been the. so protest leaders in hong kong say 100000 people turned out for a mass march through the city on sunday have been demanding greater protection of their democratic freedoms and human rights the culmination of 6 months of protests even though police approved the event they warned they wouldn't tolerate a repeat of recent violent protests and in fact earlier confiscated a handgun and ammunition in raids that resulted in multiple arrests police say the weapon would have been used to create chaos during the rally adrian brown was reporting for us from hong kong and says there was a noticeable change in the atmosphere during sunday's match. what we got today was a flavor a reminder of what this protest movement was like when it began 6 months ago
8:02 pm
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 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 the 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 carry land to see to their demands remember there are not just figure versal suffrage but also an independent commission of inquiry into what they say are police actions during the past 6 months from what we've got of course on sunday was a further reminder that the voice of protest in hong kong is far from diminished.
8:03 pm
we got some analysis from steve sang a little earlier director of the china institute at science university in london he actually expects the protests in hong kong to continue over the coming months dini told hashed had change in terms of nature and focused from this summer. when it all started to it was about the n.t. is about the extradition you now the poultices 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 to be really isn't a big issue any longer that beijing is not going to make the concession and the
8:04 pm
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 of the initial repressive force and then you also have the government in palm kong led by chief executive who is frankly politically illiterate and doesn't understand what needs to be done and does not have the courage to do what it takes to bring a political solution so this will continue i think to other news this sunday in a fire in india's capital has killed at least 43 people it tore through one of the oldest markets and burned down a factory where some of the poorest residents were sleeping it is the worst fire in the city more than 2 decades until vora following this one for us from new delhi in says police of accuse the building owner of disregarding safety laws. the delhi
8:05 pm
police has detained the owner of this 4 story building and also charged the owner with this under section 304 which essentially is culpable homicide not amounting to murder the police has also said that they did not find any safety equipment inside the building after the inspection and owner of this building had not secured any sort of fire clearance we were also talking to a lot of people who live in that area very congested area and these these said that there are many such factories many such small workshops that operate out of that place and nearly this they don't know of anyone actually who has secured any sort of climate and this is a broader reality in the country and certainly in india where residential areas are turned into commercial areas without the employers the owners securing proper permits a lot of these people who come to work in delhi come from poor states from across the country the come to delhi because there's not enough work back home and they
8:06 pm
come here at whatever salary the employer decides and the essentially have to live off whatever the employer decides to pay them they don't have enough money to rent a room for get an apartment so they actually in groups live inside the places that they work in factories like this one or small workshops and that's also true for children who work in spec shops in the city even they live in the same place that they actually work in and that's quite widespread doctress in delhi but across the country. u.s. defense secretary says washington will take precautions to ensure the safety of its military bases mark aspen made those comments following a gun attack at a naval base in florida on friday a saudi national mohammed saeed granny shot dead 3 students at the aviation school 10 saudi citizens are now being questioned in connection with the attack. so some were detained friends of his that were also on that basis i understand it and i
8:07 pm
also with was told that some one or 2 were filming it what's unclear is where they filming it before it began or was it something where they picked up their phones and filmed it once they saw it unfolding that may be a distinction with or without a difference but again it's why i think we need to let the investigation play out more with mike hanna in washington now mike who else has been discussing this issue today well you heard there the secretary of defense saying that the investigation must be left to play out and also refusing to characterize at this stage the attack as a terrorist attack however not so from the congressman from florida that gates who in a tweet says this was a premeditated terrorist attack he's also asked for the entire program of taking saudi nationals into u.s. training systems to be frozen while this investigation continues we need to have a review of this program and it's my belief that as secretary asper is looking at
8:08 pm
the record keeping the accounting for the saudi nationals that are in our country the continuous observance and monitoring of their activities to ensure that there is not radicalization while that's going on we should pause this program we should not be taking new incoming saudi students until we are absolutely confident in our vetting process so what we hear from the congressman sort of. highlighting the fact that not just foreign nationals involved but particularly saudis i guess a hangover from 911. d.d.'s institutional memory off americans about $911.00 remembering that the majority of the actors in that attack were indeed saudi nationals so certainly there is a lingering memory of this which is directly related to this particular case the fact that to is a saudi national once again carrying out an attack on u.s. soil but more importantly as well is that fact that you heard confirmed there that
8:09 pm
a number of saudi nationals who were training at that base as well have also been placed in detention this is raising the question of whether or not this was more than an isolated act by an individual and that it could amount to a conspiracy once again echoing back to $911.00 this is what the investigators are looking at but certainly there's a lot of speculation to that end throughout the country as a whole thanks for that mike hanna in washington d.c. . well the top security official in baghdad has been removed from his post after weeks of anti-government protests since the demonstrations began in october more than 400 mostly unarmed protesters have been killed right across the country where focusing on the southern city of nasiriyah which is in some of the worst violence similar 14 met survivors and protesters who say they've been tortured by security forces. hospital wards in the remain full after security forces opened fire on protesters last week in the intensive care unit this demonstrator who was shot in

8:11 pm
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 nasiriyah 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 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 you 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 like the bulk of those arrested he will soon released on bail but many
8:12 pm
believe the use of violence is likely to continue the problem that we have use the government by others they call. the problem there is theoretical type of investigation. but without any results the crackdown has stoked fear among demonstrators that the same time fueling more anger the people of nasiriya have seen too much and lost too many to simply return to normal life seem wonderful team al-jazeera nastia. in the news ahead. more on the search for migrants and refugees off the coast of mar tenure. and the 1st i suppose we are in malaysia in milton 25 years and what that means for global eradication efforts.

doing everything possible we're going to learn more lessons and we want to be the show me an example of anti racism that the labor party should be in and squeezed between the 2 main parties is joe swinson of the liberal democrats her party strategy has shifted from trying to get 10 downing street to taking seats away from forest johnson reporter voting liberal democrat is to have more left and m.p.'s who will work to stop brakes on invariably has failed labor he won't miss a meal and in very many parts of the country it's liberal democrats who are taking on the conservatives and whether. those labor minded voters decided to back the liberal democrats in lots of seats will help to determine whether or not boris johnson has a majority the latest polls suggest the conservatives could secure a majority but the polls got it wrong when it came to the e.u. referendum as well as predicting that to rescind may would win a majority in the 2017 election if there is a hung parliament boris johnson will face a challenge trying to find partners to prop him up as well jeremy corbin the

8:25 pm
is the director of the vaccine confidence project and says even those 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 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 or marginalized group with any issues with the government you might be
8:26 pm
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 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. after centuries of living on their ancestral land rising river levels of forced a group of indigenous alaskans to abandon their homes climate changes triggered stronger storms which of course the lands to crumble away on is your construct travel to the town of new talk to learn of the financial and the emotional toll of finding a new place to live. 2000 years ago the you pick people began sheltering
