10:02 am
now speaking at an emergency briefing new zealand's prime minister just under a durned confirmed to a group tour groups rather world on the island at the time of the eruption we know already that there were a number of tourists on or around the island at the time both new zealanders and visit is from overseas i know there will be a huge amount of consume and saudis for those who have loved ones on or around the island at the time and i can assure them police are doing in everything they can i speak now to shannon red soles and all clinch is a reporter with news new zealand good to have you with us let's start with the people of all the missing been accounted for by now i know some more than huff of the people but it's said to have been on the island at the time messing and you heard that deputy police commissioner say 23 people have been rescued off the
10:03 am
island which could leave up to 27 people that could still baby and now makes it it's too dangerous for search and rescue and place to heed to the elements and quite a few more. help they are doing so when they say it's too dangerous does that mean this eruption is still very much active right now. i think the biggest concern is the ash that is around and it really has all of the powered vision and terms of trying to get to the on the edge of local. volcanic and it writes if it's has it actually the chance of it being not that eruption is really low so that's not what they're concerned about at this stage but of course this would have been spewing hot fox don't think lava but lodge projectiles and so just why sink because of course wouldn't want to why they cost of those again not to lie the stench rescue is still no doubt very much still the priority above any form going towards
10:04 am
warnings early warnings will wear any given that an eruption was imminent. so no the eruption had been very suddenly and in fact it was next to no warning that had been a slight increase and the level of activity on the island in the previous weeks how a vulcan ologists have said that these folk these all kinds which have lava quite close to the service a surface one on them does and so this can happen just very quickly it hasn't happened in a long time a significant. eruption as this one however the odds for some us on and embrace die as this if they were up to 50 people be at the time many of them having come all of a sion of the ses that cruise ship which is important and total and so it can be obvious not to be dangerous but not to digress as nothing like this happened before or i thank you so much for giving us shannon the rights to let. gulf leaders are meeting in saudi arabia for the 40th session of the gulf cooperation council the 6 nation regional bloc
10:05 am

10:06 am
a show of unity that was in riyadh in may 2017 a few weeks later saudi arabia u.a.e. behala and egypt cut diplomatic ties with qatar accusing it of funding extremism and building closer ties with iran qatar has repeatedly denied the charges and rejected a list of 13 demands by the blockade in countries which include closing a turkish military base downgrading ties with iran and shutting down the aisle to 0 media network. the us has called on its gulf allies to and their feud fearing the rift might undermine its 1st to contain what it sees as iran's growing influence in the region the signs are they are but at the same time despite these 2 are momentous steps that have been taken over the past weeks we know that a no one. diplomatic initiatives have so far over the past 2 and a half years taken place where our robust u.s.

10:08 am
parliament is going to tip the bill is going to be dampened in the parliament today and he does expect it to be passed either today or tomorrow because after the bill is tabled a debate would ensue there is no doubt that it will pass because the ruling in the nationalist party does have a number in the no house so they will make sure that they can post a bit through now we are in the national capital and behind me there's a protest that's been organized many of these people actually belong to the minority community and they feel that they're being targeted for the moment although it looks like the conversation is about illegal migrants and how those who are hindus and missions and sikhs in jayne's would be accepted and muslims would not be but they feel that he would create us prices of statelessness and muslims indian muslims would also be targeted once the citizenship bill is aas now we were in our family our team and we spoke to many people who were wrongfully declared as

a bit of emergency aid or the occupied west bank or rights group says it has evidence so dan's powerful paramilitary rapid support forces may be a growing threat to the country's fragile peace global witness says the leader of the r.s.s. is running a para military industrial complex $101.00 down the gallo also known as her majesty is said to be linked to 3 companies at the heart of our funding one is a grenade a gold trading company in 2017 the r.s.s. seize control of a dollar for gold mine global witness says 2 other companies are controlled by the maybe's family they used to funnel money to and from the are seth the report also says they are a surfboard a 1000 vehicles from dealers in the united arab emirates and the rights group says the r.s.s. has an account under its own name in a subsidiary of an emirates bank the rapid support force is supposed to be

controlled by sudan's military but according to global witness its funding is almost totally independent. i have a morgan joins us now from khartoum so that being labeled a threat to peace and democracy why what are they doing. well for starters protesters who have been leading sudan's revolution and since last year have been saying that they are also concerned about the role that the deputy head of the sovereign council he made to who is the head of the hours have is playing to end a transitional period there's thing that they're concerned he's trying to whitewash his image but global witness is think that they're concerned about the economy about his source of income and that he's using natural resources from the country to fund his militias which are according to the head of the sovereign council of them for top 100 who is the commander in chief says that the ourself and the sudanese military are one and that they have the same budget but that report says

already been withdrawn and that they're trying to seek a political solution but that is something that people here in the country are not happy about they're saying that the worry in yemen has nothing to do with sudan and that sudan should be focusing on its internal issues in trying to focus to solve its political situation and to reach political stability and improve the economy rather than leasing out soldiers there boys and girls to go fight in a war that they have nothing to do with or leave it there thanks so much to morgan i mean miles there is headed to the un's highest court in the netherlands to defend the country against genocide charges the case filed by gambia on behalf of the organization of islamic cooperation comes up on tuesday it accuses me of committing genocide against muslims or $700.00 thousands fled to neighboring bangladesh in 2017 the bosnian government agreed to shut down an outdoor refugee camp
