has anything really changed, this is systemic violent that needs to be addressed at its core. we are in a race against the barrier. know what to say. so we are all saying we're looking at the world as it is right now, not the world. we like it to be, the devil is always going to be in the details. the bottom line, when i was just around i me a partially collapsed building in the us state of florida has been demolished before a tropical storm makes land for ah, hello, i'm down, jordan, this is out there. a lie from joe also coming up doesn't survive and military plane crash in the philippines will have an update on the casualties.
an anti apartheid song, consult africa defiant, former president jacob zoom. a challenges is 15 month jail term for contempt. on how comic book is telling the story of young migrant and refugees from central america. ah. welcome to the program. 11 days off to an apartment building in florida partially collapsed. what was left of the structure has now been demolished me. the plan was to destroy what remained of the surf side. apartments named miami brought forward is the region, braces of tropical storm elsa, which is expected to reach the coast on tuesday. authority say the demolition will help search and rescue efforts. 24 people have been confirmed dead and 121 are still missing. let's go to korean dad. he's in miami beach cream. so the building that dramatic pictures have not been demolished. talk us through what happened
yeah, darren, it just went down about 30 minutes ago or so. they spent the greater part of sunday drilling holes into the bottom of the building where they would then put these explosive charges and brought the building down with a process known as energetic leveling. so these little explosions basically target the structural integrity of the building, which then with the force of gravity, might be hearing some explosions here. these are just fireworks because it's, it's the 4th of july here. but right now we do have crews on seen on the side of the of the demolition, just to make sure that everything is fine, that all the, all the explosions that were supposed to go off and did in fact go off. and they are due to resumed their search and rescue operation as soon as possible. carry a mess. you say it's the 4th of july holiday weekend in the u. s. normally a time of celebration, how is this tragedy playing out amongst people there?
and that side? well, i mean, if this people have been been shocked here now ever, ever since this happened, usually the street behind me would be full of people. on the 4th of july, there would be a whole host of firework spectacles along the beach. of course, that wasn't the case. this time arrived, we did have some firework displays, but the city of miami beach sufficiently cancelled their firework celebration out of respect for the, for the victims. we have to remember that last year, during the 4th of july, miami was in the grips of the of the cove at pandemic. we were basically the epicenter for the us at the time, and there were no real firework display to speak of the mood was subdued as well. so you had a lot of people prior to this collapse. obviously you had been eagerly looking forward to just let loose and that's exactly what they were doing about an hour
away from where i am in fort fort lauderdale. but that was obviously not the case today, and people here are concerned and they're upset. they're sad. there's a lot to be sad about, we think we've talked a lot about the dead and the missing. let's not forget that structure that we just saw come down, people had been living there. they were forced to evacuate during the initial collapse last thursday. but they have to leave their belongings behind, they have to leave their pets behind. and that's something that a lot of people here have been concerned about as well. there was a motion right before the demolition was scheduled, where a woman who lived inside the building had was, was trying to get a delay so that people could look for her a little bit more. and this is, we've had a lot of requests like this, and that might seem a little bit silly to some of our viewers overseas, but you know, people's pets here are part of the family and they've just, they've just lost everything now. and this is something that might be repeating
itself in other parts of miami and south florida. we had a k, we had a case on friday where there was a building that was, that was condemned because it seems to have some structural and electrical issues that were deemed done safe. and there has been a review across the county of miami dade, for all buildings that are older than 40 years old, to make sure that there are no issues there with the structure of the building and anything else that might lead to some kind of a problem. similar to what we saw in surfside the last week and what just finished the coming down just about half an hour ago. all right. carina had to live 1st there in miami beach cream. thank you. well, as we mentioned, a tropical storm elsewhere is making its way towards florida and has made a landfill in eastern cuba. it brought strong winds of nearly $95.00 millimeters, an hour and heavy rain forecast. as a warning of flash flooding and mudslide. the storm has already battered several
can be an island killing. at least 3 people. 180000 people in cuba are being evacuated. the government's also trying to protect sugar cane and cocoa crops. the storms expected to gradually weaken as it moves across the country. while we're moving because the building is falling, we need to move now because with the storm that's coming, things are grim as we can say. you need to move and that's how we keep going. wow. and we are being evacuated and that's because of this done. the building is in the very best date and they have been some collapses. so you need to look after yourself. like the philippines military says, all 96 people on board, one of its plains of crashed on sunday, have not been accounted for. 47 people died as well as 3 on the ground. when the military aircraft went down as it landed on hollow island ensued. a province 49 soldiers survived. the crash. most of them had just completed basic training and the do to join operations against groups in the region of jamila allan doug and
john live now from manila. similar. so it's a miracle that so many people survived. i already more detailed emerging about what caused this crash. well, there, and i was just listening to the press conference on the military spokesperson and basically say out of those to survive. they're actually those who are in critical condition. they are given the best possible care some i've been flown to the one to 15, the biggest city closest to hello. there is a military hospital in hello, which is of course, one of the biggest basis of the philippine military in the southern philippines. you know, it is quite a nerve wracking situation for the military, because if we look at the situation starting this year, this is the 3rd case of a, the asian accident for the philippine air air force. since this year. they said that today is a period of morning that all flags will be flown that have mass. but he also said that, you know, this by this period the morning that there's
a full blown investigation that's on their way. investigators have already arrived this morning in law and, you know, based on the initial investigation, they said that, you know, it seems that, you know, the, the plane actually landed well within the protocols that were required. they also said it's unlikely that it's going to be pilot error, but they said they are determined to find out what's actually transpired. now because of this situation, they said they used to have for the 130, the philippine military. they are grounding the, remain that one that remains in the philippines as being used and to remain under repair. in, in, in portugal we were also told that, you know, they're doing the very best they can to inform those families as was, you know, was family soldiers have perished. some of those bodies have been identified that they are going to give them the best possible honors befitting those who have died in the line of duty. so what more do we know about the specific c 130?
we understand it was given to the philippines by the us under this defense cooperation scheme. yes indeed. and so relatively, this is pretty new. and according to the philippine military, you know, it's one of this new with aircraft. it's considered a work horse. and you know, even if the airport in hello is considered as classified as a domestic minor airport, compared to all other airports. in manila, they're run. we may be a little bit narrow. we blown and landed on this runway many, many times. see 130 so constantly landed on this runway so you're talking about pilots are quite seasoned already. they have flown this 113 many times over in the past the same, right? the same c, 130 has actually been used to pick up supplies and vaccines from other countries from china in particular. and actually some of these by lives have had a long experience of flying, many, many other aircrafts including this one. so they said basically there's
a lot of question at this point. they're just making sure that all of those others are theirs will be answered. the priority at this point is to identify the bodies that have been pulled out to make sure that those who survive, they're given the best possible medical care and to make sure that a thorough investigation will be continued despite this very difficult time for the philippine military at this point and lastly, therein to point out this particular incident, it seems to be the worst crash in recent philippine military history. you know, based on the available government records at this point. so this is quite unfortunate for the philippine military jamila. thank you. not for myself, african president, jacob's humor has defied a deadline set by the supreme court to surrender to police the 79 year old joint supporters who rallied outside your home. and candler, promising to resist any attempts to arrest him. zoom was found guilty of contempt of court offending to appear before a corruption inquiry the face of 15 months in prison. and on friday i applied to
the court, but a sentence to be an old. to me, the miller has the latest. now from candler for myself, african president jacob zoom remains adamant that has not been treated fairly by the judicial system. specifically, the constitutional court, as well as the commission of inquiry into corruption or state capture, as it's known in south africa. it's after the former president refused to testify at the commission that he was taken to the constitutional court with a charge of contempt of court. the constitutional court found that he was guilty of that and sentenced him to 15 months in prison. now the president, the former president, has gone on to say that and he said this a number of times that he's not afraid to go to jail. he is a prisoner of conscience. and that this is about the rule of law that because he's not been treated fairly consistently,
he is challenging that again at the constitutional court. and that's why he's not handed himself in to police. and that's why it's likelihood possibly face arrest in the coming days. but this is what the president, the former president said earlier when addressing media effect that i was busted to with a punitive jail sentence without trial is something which should in induce a sense of shock to all those who cherish freedom and the rule of law south africa is fast, slight in bag to fade type room jacobs. duma is due in court on tuesday to apply for an entity to stop police from arresting him. if that is not successful because they are questions around the jurisdiction
of the high court in that it's not known. if that lower court can challenge a judgement or can stuff a judgement made by the highest court in the land. the constitutional court, which usually can not be appealed. however, if the former president is successful, he will then appear at the constitutional court later in july, in mitigation of sentence, in an appeal to have the sentence changed entirely, with the very least at the very least reduced. he says he's too old and ill to go to jail. his concern about the 3rd wave of the coven 19 pandemic in south africa. and apart from the moral stance, he says he's taking, he's concerned saying that 15 months in jail would effectively be a death sentence. however, if the court bed is not successful, the former president does face the rest in the coming days. but more will be known
once he appears in court on tuesday. time for a short break here. and just here, when we come back to living divided lives, how controversial nor up for a view in israel is leading palestinian families in limbo and celebration. a new chapter for chile, the people with a job of rewriting the constitution and ending years of division. i choose hello there. let's start in north america. i'm not excessive. heat continues to dominate the weather across northern areas of the u. s. it's moved rather centrally across the northern plains and to the midwest. we've had some excessive heat warnings issued from montana and idaho. as those temperatures just continue to climb to the north east of this,
we have had temperatures dip along the east coast. we've had thunderstorms and showers. all those have now is, and the temperatures are going to pick up from monday, but it will remain rather hot and humid, particularly for new york city with plenty of cloud cover. for the wet weather. we have to go to the deep south. we've seen severe storms rolling across texas and affecting parts of louisiana. we've seen flash flooding in new orleans and in part of florida. and there's more wet and windy weather on the way for florida as we go into next week. thanks to tropical storm elsa. it's been downgraded from a hurricane. it's moving its way across cuba. we could see a storm surge and up to 1.5 meters and up to $300.00 millimeters of rain expected, particularly in southern areas of cuba. and as we go into monday, we're expecting it to impact the florida keys, and we'll keep an eye on that and bring you more updates. the
it's more than just again, it's a way of life. every pass, every shows, every day brings us together. we miles. so we can say we would, we flew every month and going with a game takes us together. it's more than just again. ah ah, welcome back, i picked them out about top stories here. this our, me what remained of
a past the collapse apartment building in the u. s. state of florida has not been demolished. plan support for what ahead of a tropical storm expected. on tuesday, the 24 people are confirmed dead and a 124 months american president jacob's duma has defied a deadline set by the supreme court to surrender to police. he was found guilty of contempt of court last week, offending to appear before a corruption inquiry. and the philippine military says 96 people on board. a plane that crashed on sunday have been accounted for. 47 soldiers died when the c 130 crop went down and suited problems 49 others survived. now an assembly elected after months of protests in chile has begun meeting to draft a new constitution, replace the one imposed in 1980 by the then military government of august. i finished the proceedings were delaying the doctor fighting between police and demonstrators outside the convention center, where the delegates met daniel shawn, the report. it took a long time and
a lot of work to get this for 155 delegates representing sexes of truly in society . this the historic moment when executive secretary of the election commission, carmen glory of i should already have them in them. i said, you know, gratian was delayed by protest inside the convention hall by those not happy with the procedure and class. she's outside between police and demonstrators. this isn't the assembly designed to heal the divisions in july and society. the newly elected president is elisa, long gone, never poochie indigenous people. off the convention, members, a women, 17 seats, the phil by representatives of indigenous communities. of course, this is tory day, which was one with a tough fight and a lot of pain. the chilean people, the indigenous people, are now able to abolish p sheds even constitution. this is
a time of hold. the other the other goes represent the l g, b t q, community and those with disabilities. 65 are independent to belong to. none of chinese established political parties know can move, got never before and surely. we elected people in this way. this is an unforgettable moment. unique for those of us representing social movements in the fight for the dignity last for more than 30 years outside. others are still demanding justice human rights abuses committed during military rule. well, it's a bit more government. we really hope this will bring about change in chile, that will see a change to day. the people want to change, not more of the thing you assembly will have up to a year to draft a new constitution that will replace the one imposed in 1980 does appear to shave military governments. it will them have to be approved for the july and people in
amanda 3 votes. the new assembly came about aftermath protests in 2019. the highlight is a huge inequality into land society. the 10s of thousands felt that were being left out of the political process. they hope they can now begin to address those divisions. the few are expecting it to be easy. weidler how to 0. the government in cyprus says a forest fire that killed 4 egyptian labourers a close to being brought under control. the fire broke out on saturday afternoon in the middle of a heat wave. the forester department says is the worst in more than 60 years. 67 people have been rescued in the mediterranean sea in italy. among them were 4 men, a child and 20. unaccompanied miners are found by the crew from the humanitarian ship ocean of biking. more than 20000 migrants and refugees have died trying to cross the mediterranean to europe since 2014 m. p 's in
israel are expected to vote in a controversial law that prohibits palestinians from the west bank from settling permanently with their spouses from israel occupied east jerusalem. it's been renewed every year since 2003. but as harry force reports, there's a chance that it won't happen this time manage our tray lives a divided life dominated by the architecture and bureaucracy of occupation. when my prayer meeting, he was born just outside jerusalem's eastern limits. so his id papers are those of the palestinian from the west bank, but he lives in occupied east jerusalem with his daughter and wife, both of whom have jerusalem. i. d. 's mohammed has to apply for a special military permit every 12 months, just to live in his own home. because you don't like at any moment them i tell you that you have to leave you a note welcome. his wife cannot. he could only wish for the chance of permanent
secure status and more we would have more freedom. he could work easily, movies in the travel and live daily life more easily. and when you don't have anything, and you're afraid all the time i get across occupied easter islam, thousands of families have been put in this position by a temporary law that has to be renewed every 12 months. the question for them is whether the political shift inside israel could ease that burden on them. israel's new right wing prime minister natalie bennett, leads a government that contains left wing and palestinian israeli parties who has set against voting to extend the law. this is a trap for him because it, it's not a law which is on the books, it's emergency action that was taken in 2003 at the height of the 2nd intifada. when there was real proof that people who had used the family unification actually were engaged in terrorist activities against israel,
that's not the case to date. now the new position needed benjamin netanyahu is also threatening to vote against it. to deal in early defeat, to the government will be if they don't want to give citizenship 215000 palestinians, they have to abstain. we never had right wing national parties voting against this law. the campaign is against the law such comments reinforced of you, that it's about demography not security. you hear that the law is necessary for security and to maintain israel as a jewish democratic state. so that should be suspicious to everyone. you know, when you are hearing these 2 justifications, you have to call into question. is it essential only for security reasons. mom, even if the law is prevented from lapsing containers, hope it may be amended perhaps exempting at least elderly couples. but that would still leave mohammed living
a restricted life. no is really health cover. no driving license. no real peace of mind. even at home. harris was it i'll just 0 occupied east jerusalem. now after months of conflict in northern ethiopia to great regional government says it's ready for a ceasefire, but with key conditions, an adviser to the president of t dry state released a statement on twitter demanding the food withdrawal of foreign troops in the region. reference. not any soldiers from neighboring every trade, but also the if you have been military and forces from europe. yes, i'm hard of region to drive. government is also calling on the you end to investigate. ethiopia, i am very true for what it describes as war crimes and crimes against humanity in to cry. and other demand is the unimpeded delivery of humanitarian aid and helped to re, patrick people, displaced by the conflict. the regional leaders, a few of your must restore electricity and internet to the region and release all political prisoners with full legal rights to 0. as catherine soy is in about,
she says the government to soften its hardline position to negotiate with the to brian leaders. placement by the to grand forces has, is very strongly wooded. and a lot of the field is, are high about cautiously hopeful that these open a window to a political dialogue, the whole thing that both sides, the federal government and administration of our be prime minister. i'll be on that . and the last leadership are going to set aside their hotline positions and seats and agreed to the buyer so that at least humanitarian aid can get to those who need it most. so what the leadership is demanding apart from the role of retrans proof. and if your forces, if you appeal of fighters from the neighboring, i'm higher reason that you know that i think also demanding that the government recognized left leadership as
a to lead lead due to made and left said original government of the gripe and they're also demanding that, apart from that you, when forming this investigative, to investigate atrocities that have been committed in these conflicts started in november, there should be another body international body formed to really truck and make sure that this demands this issues are implemented. now we haven't had any response from the government, a prime minister, i'll be going to be addressing parliament tomorrow monday to discuss national issues. he may also be discussing a t grew mater parliamentarians are going to be asking questions by so it's difficult to see how the government is going to accept some of this month. for example, it has already labels p, p a laugh and it's courses, terrorist organizations. so for the government to come back and legitimize
d. p. last. and the leadership of the guy is basically admitting defeat. hundreds of afghan troops have fled into neighboring to seek us down. of the taliban continues to make gains in northern afghanistan. they crossed over from but actually province where local officials say soldiers and police were out numbered by taliban fighters. the group now controls around a 3rd of all districts across the country. the claims it's already captured much more territory. the story of a fictional child refugees journey through central america is the focus of a new challenge. sponsored comic book saying the children hopes it will highlight the struggles of young migrants traveling to the united states to 0 manual. rapid reports from towana on the us mexico. border ana is the story of the young girl, forced to migrate from central america. while this comic book sponsored by the nonprofit groups saved the children, tells of fictional tale of a young migrant child and her mother. on his experiences like running away from
gang violence, or joining a migrant caravan reflect, a vivid reality endured by thousands of children every year. speaking to al jazeera through a social worker, 7 year old, he bonnie recalls hauntingly similar experience that post her and her mother to flee domestic violence in her home country of honduras, leaving everything and everyone they knew behind. one time my father was drinking at home and he hit my mother with a beer bottle and got her here. he bonnie tells us, she felt fear as she and her mother travel through mexico during cold dark nights. her story is reminiscent of a scene in the comic book where ana and her mother climb aboard a freight train along with dozens of other central american migrants. they may be illustrations for these pages accurately depicts many dangers migrant children face when making the life or death journey toward the u. s. on the border. humanitarian
workers from said the children say they hope the message laid out in comic book form will reach. people were unaware of the plight of young asylum seekers living in mexico. be really sad, as we hope the comic book brings visibility to the needs of my grandchildren and to the entire process of migration. we hope it makes people more empathetic, because these are stories that are not easy to tell. but should this comic book, which is based on real stories, maybe that can affect the change. the representatives from saved the children are caring for more than 400 under age migrants at this shelter alone. though this is only one of many safe spaces from children sponsored by the organization near mexico's border with united states. children's rights groups estimate that one out of every 3 migrants that come to mexico from central america are children and teenagers. the vast majority from countries like 100, guatemala, and salvador humanitarian workers, c migrant children,
continue to arrive here every day and due to border restrictions linked to the pandemic. many are finding themselves stuck in mexico, stretching the limits of the services, humanitarian organizations are able to offer. manuel up a little al jazeera, he wanna mexico? yes, president joe biden has marked the july 4th independence day holiday by encouraging more people to get vaccinated for firework lit up the national mall. he said, getting the job is an act of patriotism and that the u. s. is close to declaring independence from covered 90. ah, type a quick check of the headlines here on al jazeera. mm.
