9:02 pm
of wrangling over how the prominent kremlin critic should be treated the 44 year old fell critically ill whilst on a flight on thursday supporters say he was poisoned the police have found traces of an industrial chemical on his luggage and his clothing but doctors at the hospital in siberia where he's still in intensive care say there's no sign of any poison and they've diagnosed a blood sugar problem earlier i spoke to alexandra. who is a freelance journalist in moscow she said the medical transport shouldn't take too long to organize. what are russian doctors saying that it will take a couple of hours to prepare him core of this trip that they still think is a risky trip and that might endanger his health but that they gave finally permission to happen they say they have to prepare the patient then that is still in the coma and he is still cook to
9:03 pm
a medical ventilator so what they are saying that it will take a couple of hours only to prepare him and then there is a method of course for all sorts of permits and administer dave's thing which to day the kremlin promised is not going to be a problem in the case doctors give a green light for his reputation what do we know of this tocsin that's been found we understand on his hair and his hams well it seems to be a chemical which is used in and industrial production of plastics to make it like more flexible to make it well basically bent plastic and that what. police is saying that it might have been from a plastic cap he was drinking tea the morning when he fell ill they found it in his hair they found it on some on the clothes but all doctors are saying there were no traces of that found in his blood or in his urine samples as a matter of fact they to date before they gave the permission completely dismissed
9:04 pm
or isn't it of any kind as a reason for not buying this condition ok that's the story out of moscow let's get the story as we think it might unfold in berlin dominic cain is germany correspondent dom hi there good evening when he goes into the building behind you don what happens to him. he goes into the building behind me he gets treated by staff who have direct relevant recent experience of treating patients who present with the sorts of symptoms the sorts of condition that we understand. the has been suffering since his ordeal began on board that flight in the course of the last week now the point to be made about that is the experience that those doctors those nurses have relates to somebody else who was perceived to be a critic of the government of president vladimir putin the person who was an
9:05 pm
associate of the pussy riot group who presented the same conditions and was flown out of russia on the same sort of medi vac flight medical evacuation that is to berlin brought to the shah it's a hospital behind me of my right shoulder and that was a few years ago that person recovered i'm speaking about his experience earlier today the interesting thing also is that the organization that flew that patient out of russia is the same organization responsible for sourcing the medivac flights in so far as mr novelli is concerned the cinema for peace foundation they give a news conference earlier today in which they suggested they did not agree that there had been no poisoning of mr vanney they believe there has been and they expect certainly they hope that when mr novelli arrives at the building behind me eventually the doctors there will be able to prove what they believe is the case because they believe he's been poisoned other people that have been treated badly
9:06 pm
shall we say by russia in the context of being an opposition to the opposition to the kremlin is generally taken them a long time to come back from that sometimes literally bearing the scars on their bodies are they expecting their charity that when mr novelli arrives we think in the next 6 or 7 hours perhaps he'll be there for some time. i think the important thing from their perspective is that if and when he does arrive they get full access to him and that they can perform the sorts of procedures that will be necessary to be performed on somebody who is who has gone through the ordeal he has gone through and is still going through as it were that's clearly their priority to stabilize the patient and then to work out what's wrong with him the interesting thing in so far as the political side of this story is
9:07 pm
concerned is that in the course of the last 2436 hours leaders of several countries have spoken about this certainly angle americal the german chancellor was asked about the case as indeed was the french president emmanuel mccann yesterday on thursday when in machall travels to mr mecum president michael's summer retreat they both were asked about the never any case both sent their governments were prepared to host mr nardelli to allow him to be medically evacuated from russia to either of their 2 countries and both of them said that they felt that arts as were necessary they had to ascertain what had happened to mr and what the circumstances were so that means what actually is in his system and how did it get that certainly that's the political side of this and then in so far as as as a say what the authorities in the shower hospital behind me will they just want to see mr so they can start working on him ok don many thanks dominic kane germany
9:08 pm
correspondent there reporting live for us to berlin well also in berlin dominic was mentioning the charity they're going to talk now to yucca bizzle he's founder of the cinema for peace that's the charity organizing this flight to germany from moscow to brazil welcome to the news hour here on al-jazeera can you give me a sense of what kind of medical equipment you have on board that plane to deal with whatever novelli has. hello you know you already mentioned 2 years ago when a similar case was it of as you know from pussy riot so basically repeated is procedure getting a medical plane with medical specialists will use to treat people who are in a coma who are. lost their consciousness ventilation. and it was pretty hard to organise all of this but in obviously we had the obstacle of dismantling the patient was not able to travel we have been told that he will not
9:09 pm
travel so as you have mentioned it was a huge struggle. and now at the end of today we are a happy it it looks like that we can fly out now the need to build into the sheraton hospital now we have got these reports saying they found deposits of some sort of industrial chemical used in the production of plastics and this is not speculation but these are just claims and reports to be completely transparent about that on his hair and his clothing is that concurrent with how you would poison somebody. to fit in many different stories over the last 2 days. i got him last yesterday at noontime went to syria peter van zyl of an idea to con about call me so our mission is a humanitarian mission bringing a plane making sure that he can come safely to bill and get his treatment all the speculations about poisoning a pretty good background is in lots read our business obviously the sheraton as
9:10 pm
is famous for doing a very good job in trying to save such people and obviously also to find out what kind of substances and waltzed so we will see what the charity will actually define and find out personally on my side was very important to have good german men medics with us who actually checked if she's able to fly nevertheless that she's unconscious that he's on dental ation and they came to the conclusion a difference in russian doctors the can fly and we will fly he's in a coma we understand still in a perfect world as far as the medics are concerned on board your aircraft should he or will he still be in a coma on the plane and when he goes from the aircraft side presumably on a stretcher into your hospital type building there in berlin. as much as i understand it would keep him in a coma but again i'm not
9:11 pm
a doctor. i'm just happy that things have been resolved often it looks very tough today you've mentioned before that many people been a lot of speaking of favor of his unitarian mission including medical in my craw and mirai happy that this is happening own we have just to watch out that nothing happens to them of ali and that he will he will. be saved today in a press conference the doctors told us that if there would have not been. interruption of his travel off of the flight to moscow he would have died a similar situation like with has lost 2 years ago it would have not found him in time he would have died so let's hope that death is far away and that's why bonnie will recover again based on your experience doing what you do with that charity and having worked with the people from pussy riot so closely in your heart of hearts do
9:12 pm
you think he was poisoned. let me put it this way if there is a strong man in his best age who the night before went swimming in a river and is in good spirits the very next day in one minute on the plane he call ups is cries of pain gets unconscious and if the plane would not have an emergency landing would die then obviously something's wrong and this was not just some normal occurrence of like you and me would have by falling sick so obviously desmond soon fall play but who why and were in the woods dimension i cannot tell but again i stepped in to help friends dog and as you would turn mission the political minds and analysis will have to have will have to follow by others especially on bill and. thank you so much for joining us here on the news hour and talking to us from. thank you much. protesters in southern
9:13 pm
iraq have set fire to local parliamentary offices after demanding justice over the killing of 2 activists security forces fired live rounds into the air as demonstrators marched on the buildings in the southern city of basra protesters want the provincial governor sacked after a series of attacks on activists by unidentified gunman. libya's internationally recognized government in tripoli today announced a cease fire rival parliament in the east also called for a stop to the fighting this potential breakthrough came as the warring sides were gearing up for a battle over the city is controlled by the warlords. it's the gateway for libya's oil terminals both that ministrations want have to blockade to end and for an agreement to be reached on how the revenue from the oil is distributed there are also proposals to demilitarize it and an airbase in i'll do for further to the south the government in tripoli says it wants to hold elections as soon as march of
9:14 pm
next year is charles stratford. libya has been in turmoil for nearly a decade. nato bank pulsars overthrew its long time leader moammar gadhafi in 2011 but the roots of what's often described as this old rich country's civil war started after the disputed elections in 2014. disagreement between the then house of representatives and the general national congress made worse over a so-called roadmap for libya's future. the country split into 2 rival administrations the house of representatives led by the warlord 34 have to move to the eastern city of who broke and what became the un backed government of national accord led by prime minister fayyad as raj remained in the capital tripoli in the west. thousands of people have been killed and many more forced to flee their homes by 6 and
9:15 pm
a half years of fighting. the un accuses regional powers of repeatedly breaking a 2011 arms embargo on libya by supplying weapons to both sides egypt the u.a.e. and russia have supported hafta while turkey and qatar have backed the government of national accord. in april last year hoft old an offensive to take control of tripoli aiming at what he described as cleansing the western zone of terrorist groups. his forces have shut down or taking control of major oil facilities in eastern libya depriving the country of billions of dollars in revenue tripoli's only international airport has been repeatedly bombed using heavy artillery many civilians have been killed and wounded. areas of southern and western tripoli have been almost completely destroyed in the fighting repeated attempts at un bank cease fire talks of failed. a cease fire is a decision made by the power brokers by the circumstances and it is not necessarily
9:16 pm
a libyan decision this spike the fact that it's the g.n.a.t. and the look who announced this decision this time to decision is not libya and the decision is uniquely takesh russia with some input from some of the international powers and as long as it stays that way it's unlikely the cease fire will break. friday's cease fire announcement comes amid fears of an escalation by both sides mobilizing for a battle over the town sears the gateway to the major all terminals which under the control of pro have to forces for now at least there's hope that agreement between powerful countries that many say have contributed to libya's suffering a backing a cease fire that could and its civil war chance transferred i was there ok still to come here on the news hour for you now here's to be able to say that the end of this chapter of american doctors began here tonight. presidential candidate joe biden promises to move past what he called the chaos and crisis of the trump white
9:17 pm
house plus. a victory celebration in mali after the coup the military jointer still insists the president went willingly. and manchester united's captain is arrested after a holiday ball details with peter in support in 30 minutes. turkey today announced its biggest natural gas discovery a 320000000000 cubic meter field underneath the black sea the country currently depends on imports for most of its energy needs president 31 says this will change . i really am delighted to bring this good news to you ticky has successfully found the largest gas field in the black sea this is the biggest exploration and the biggest discovery into history so i'm concerned who's in istanbul she says the
9:18 pm
government is hoping the find could be a much required boost for the economy. the size of the gas reserves found by that by turkey is of course very small compared to energy giant countries like china or united states or russia but will it be a remedy for the ailing turkish economy that's the question and this is what the turkish government is very positive about turkey's and that energy importer country for instance in 2900 took imported 45000000000 cubic meters of natural gas and it costs around $15000000000.00 u.s. dollars for turkey and it constitutes at least half of turkey's current account deficit so for a country like turkey totally dependent on foreign energy supplies even though it's a short term gain it's of course the size the scale of the. resource is not enough to be a game changer but it's going to provide tricky
9:19 pm
a lever it in the black sea also a legitimate station of energy exploration in the eastern mediterranean this is how the government sees and of course this is good news for the ruling party to consolidate its electorate given a fragile economic turbulence turkey is going through ok let's bring in cronus chapala this is a maritime security analyst who joins us on scott for oxford in the u.k. cronus welcome to the news hour is this the game changer that mr seems to believe it is. well to be honest from a of a scale of their exam and what we are seeing so far the information that we're getting this is not a big game danger but this could be the beginning of something that will boost the end of the very well and the very months needed boost to the decks economy so what we're seeing because their example could only serve to be for example for 6
9:20 pm
years it is not as big but it can be the injection in the economy the flow of cash in the economy that are. eagerly looking for the last few years could it in theory in the next say 345 years make turkey energy independent and if it does does that mean that turkey will be able to start punching above its weight in a way that it hasn't done before well it still has to be fair there are no lies to see the quality of the a finding but from the numbers that we are seeing so far you cannot make any independent energy use and certainly cannot make very key and energy exporter i was the desire of you so friends don't currently mr capello to stay with us i just want you to listen please to another sound bite from mr one talking today about exploration in the eastern mediterranean area. well. we've been
9:21 pm
making concerted if it's over the past 2 years both exploration business will be doing the same in mediterranean sea both missiles have drilled 9 wells in both the black sea in the mediterranean and by the grace of god we found this big discovery and i'm certain that we will have similar good news from the mediterranean. now broadly speaking groaners that's kind of all focused or centered around the territorial waters around cyprus be it turkey cyprus or greek cyprus but there are also other territorial claims is there a sense in which the black sea discovery is easier for turkey because that's in it on its patch whereas what's going on in the eastern med is a lot more problematic. well there is one big problem that these things the 2 cases in the black sea the border there are 10 boundaries and the economic exclusive zones have been said we thought the gondolas in their region starting from 1977 up to 9097 so more than 30 years ago now everything is good here
9:22 pm
every country knows its jurisdiction whereas in the military if somebody during the end currently we steered him dispute regarding the markdown bonders between the countries and that is the most important element in this equation because we have to consider that a lot of private oil companies will be coming into play in the exploration in the black sea and similarly in any future i think if occasion or resources in this meeting in these countries these companies sorry do not want to be seen gaves into an area which has high tensions don't want to go there they want to deploy their tools and do their job without giving any issues so it seems for now that the said distinction area for the cemetery and region when it comes to those claims and counterclaims particularly in this eastern med area what's your sense as to how far
9:23 pm
the different countries are prepared to push this if the ultimate reward is they get what's under the water. well it seems that that techie his taking the net has taken the next step and going beyond 10 people among the discussions to a projection of power what is no non-science gunboat diplomacy if you're deployed range to do research in the area about 2 weeks ago we are seeing devout international organizations return guys nations like the un regional and the countries in the region condemned that activity it can't be summed up the best way to resolve the issue needs for all the countries in the in the region to withdraw their military assets and sit down in the diplomatic table to discuss and come to agreement to further move forward and explore the region week seems to be veery from an energy perspective ok we have to leave it there cronus couple of us there
9:24 pm

9:26 pm
with wanting to complicate the upcoming november elections he committed again that these further changes will not take place for the postal service until after the election but he would not he refused to undo any of the changes that have already happened and that have resulted in documented mail delays he vowed to the senators on this committee panel today that the postal service would be able to deliver every ballot on time to be counted which is a reversal from what his agency warned a month ago in warnings to $46.00 states the u.s. postal service said that potentially millions of votes could go on counted because of mail delays and because of the public outcry detroit has been walking back on those changes president trump of course has been the adamantly opposed to mail in ballots he said again today without evidence that it could lead to massive voter fraud he said that it would be an embarrassment to the country and that quote he

9:28 pm
a lot is happening at the same time tomorrow the full house will be back in session to take up to take up a bill that would prevent more of these changes from going forward and we know that the joy will be facing yet another congressional committee on monday that will be a house committee for potentially more aggressive questioning as he is grilled again on these policies heidi thanks so much. on capitol hill reporting for the news out. ok here's a quick taste of what's still to come here on this program caught on camera the brother of the mexican president is filmed apparently receiving an envelope full of cash. i don't people by the time you come to the i.c.u. it's kind of late for you by this mainly latino border community in the u.s. is high risk because of the coronavirus kind them it. does drive on leon that a moment for the young 22 year old. comes out from sacramento century from the england
