three seven max. crashes and five. leaders across southern africa have declared national disasters in the wake of. more than eighty people are confirmed dead in mozambique but the president says that number could be as high as a thousand the storm brought down homes and trees and cut off communities then moved on to zimbabwe and caused more deaths and destruction farm in the middle has more now from beta as one of the hardest hit areas and. the situation here appears to be becoming increasingly difficult just behind us as you can see power lines are down in this particular street but that is the picture across the city there's also
11:02 am
no communication we're using a satellite phone to communicate with people here we don't have that luxury and that's what adding to a some of the difficulties that people here are facing so far the government has said that sixty eight people were killed during that cycle in the days after but it's expected that figure will rise because there is there's no communication people aren't able to call for help will determine where missing people are all just also the extent of the devastation and aid agencies is that just one of the biggest challenges apart from accessing areas especially rural areas in low lying areas where floodwaters are continuing to rise apart from having difficulty in accessing those areas they simply can't determine just how bad the devastation is an aid agencies that have been able to fly overhead say that the floodwaters are of very high that entire villages have been swept away now here in bear away the thin
11:03 am
true hospital is that services the city of half a million people the roof of that hospital was torn torn away during that cycle own and that hospital also is running out of medicine now the government is holding a meeting in a para at some point during the course of the day to to work out what to do with people who are also disappointed they were told to evacuate before the cycling but the question for them was where do we go and they have a number of grievances with the government and just how it's dealing with this disaster so far and what happens next given the scale of devastation let's get more on it are now on the trolley just kevin corriveau is joining us bad news with move rain forecast for the areas kevin that's right it is rainy season so we. the remnants of the storm over the area and the ground is already saturated so this is not good news for the recovery relief efforts that need to go in that area and the flooding is going to continue or stay high across much of that region i want to
11:04 am
show you what's been going on right now take a look at the satellite image this is about twenty as it's about forty hours behind i want to put this into motion and show you what we're looking at right now as the storm system you can see those clouds they dissipate a little bit but they increase again they do form so this is the big problem with what this region is dealing with now you notice pira is right on the edge of where they have us rain is most of the heavy rain is up here to the north but i want to go back in time and show you what this storm has done and why it has been so significant across the region of course we were talking about the storm on march fourth when it formed over the mozambique channel this is the path there's a storm made of course it did affect not only mozambique them allowing several you know we're talking over seven days ago went back into the mozambique channel then made landfall right at the area one of the worst places it could make landfall of course it made landfall also at high tide and it was just a very strong category two storm when it did make landfall so this is what we do
11:05 am
expect to see over the next few days heavy rainfall across the region as we did mentions today as we go towards tomorrow we do expect to see more of the same across that area in terms of rain let's put this into motion for you we can we're going to be staying here on tuesday i think we know we can't go there we go we're going for to wednesday and we do see that the rain is pushing up a little bit more towards the north and terms of accumulation over the next few days well we do expect to see two hundred to three hundred millimeters more of rain across much of that central area mozambique as we go towards the northern part of mozambique it could be even higher we're talking anywhere between four hundred to potentially five hundred millimeters of rain across that region over the next few days so this is going to be a huge problem for much of this area of course we're talking a lot of roads are out. it is difficult to get in here because of the flooding situation kevin thank you very much for that. well after mozambique cyclon a diabetic zimbabwe isolating thousands of people one of the burying the dead as
11:06 am
thousands wait for relief supplies communities have begun digging mass graves at least ninety eight people were killed across the country and more than two hundred a missing aid agencies say several roadways have been destroyed making it hard to reach those who need tell. let's move on to other news now new zealand's prime minister has paid tribute to the fifty people killed in the christ church mosque attacks in the first parliamentary session since friday's mass shooting just ask the public to remember the victims' names and deny the shooting suspect the notoriety he seeks she also promised justice for the families he will face the full force of the law in new zealand the families of the fall and will have justice he sought many things from his act of tear but one was no surprise. and this is why you will never hear me mention his name. he is a terrorist he is
11:07 am
a criminal he is an extremist but he will when i speak be nameless has gone out of our correspondent way in hey he's joining us live from christchurch we have heard so much from prime minister our daryn over the past three days away but this was the first parliamentary session the first time she talked to nor makers about their responsibility now. yes that's right this was an emotional speech from the prime minister in parliament the first sitting of parliament in fact since the attack in christchurch on friday she spent most of the time understandably talking about the victims the family members and the wider muslim community and the need for new zealanders to support the muslim community's rights around the country but she did talk about some of the key issues that she is very keen to pursue that came out of this attack one of course is the change in gun laws which we will know more about according to her
11:08 am
within the next six days before the next cabinet meeting and the other one is social media of the social media companies which she says particularly facebook and not doing enough because this attack of the gunman live streamed the attack on facebook that video was then shared many times right around the world and that decision by the prime minister to criticize the social media companies call for them to take more action is being echoed now by big business in new zealand we have some of new zealand's largest companies withdrawing advertising from facebook and now a new zealand three large telecommunications companies have written an open letter to twitter facebook and google calling on them to take action they are saying that they urgently need to find a solution to the problem of things like what we saw on friday this gunman's attack
11:09 am
being live streamed on social media and videos being uploaded and shared so certainly it seems the prime minister wants this issue to be pursued and she has the backing of big business now in new zealand all of that happening in the public arena wayne we're now hearing and private that some bodies being released to family . yes it's been a long haul for those family members of the people who were killed in the mosques there has been some criticism some concern among some of those family members that this process of returning the bodies to them has simply taken too long there is confirmation that six bodies have left the hospital have been returned to the family members so some of those funerals will be able to starts immediately really and all the autopsies all fifty have now being completed so that will certainly be welcomed by the family members the prime minister had said that she hoped that that
11:10 am
process of returning the bodies would be completed by wednesday well it's late tuesday now so it appears that that process is well underway we're also hearing that the mosques will be reopened in the coming days when thank you very much for that for now that's wayne hay with all the nations live in christchurch thank you. to the u.s. now where prosecutors are looking into how the boeing seven three seven max eight aircraft got the green light from america's aviation regulator a subpoena for emails and other correspondence involving the jet's development has been issued by a federal grand jury investigators have found similarities between last week's question ethiopia and another in indonesia five months ago both involved seven three seven max eight planes mike hanna has more from washington d.c. . well the justice department investigation is virtually unprecedented in fact there's only been one occasion before in u.s. aviation history where this type of criminal proceeding has been launched in the
11:11 am
wake of an accident now what the justice department is looking at in particular is the certification process of these boeing seven three seven maxes and the role that the federal aviation authority if they did or didn't play in the certification process now it's significant that the subpoena was issued by the federal jury of the day after the crash in ethiopia however this was a coincidence the investigation had been ongoing it's taken since that particular day for news of the investigation to emerge boeing's chief executive officer has issued a statement on these accidents saying only that boeing remains committed to safety it is carrying out its own investigations but he does not address the issue of a justice department investigation an investigation that will not only look at boeing's procedures but is also likely to look at the relationship between the
11:12 am
federal aviation authority and boeing with regard to these safety procedures the british prime minister is set to hold crisis talks with her cabinet on tuesday after her break that plan suffered another setback the speaker of the house of parliament has ruled that she can only hold a third voice on her deal to leave the e.u. if that's fundamentally different from the previous one and has been rejected by m.p.'s twice john holl has more from london. but it may be a little while yet before we have a precise idea of how this is all going to turn out no doubt it's a major blow to the government's hopes of holding a third vote on trees amaze briggs it deal this week perhaps at all much will depend on what happens i think at the european union council meeting at the end of this week will for instance reason may turn up there and as she's now mandated to do by parliament as a result of the vote last week ask for an extension to the brakes a deadline and
11:13 am
a long one this time in the absence of an agreed deal might she be on bended knees begging for more in the way of concessions something she can contain in a letter suffix to the deal that might satisfy the speaker and allow a vote proceed next week might she dispense with both of those options and fall back on the ultimate threat of a no deal exit at the end of next week dangle that over the speaker's head and see if he changes his mind aside those options there are two issues of parliamentary procedure that seem to be possible one would be a vote in parliament to overturn this step this parliamentary procedure this precedent that goes back hundreds of years in the rule books the speaker said yes that might be possible if you can get a majority the last option is a radical one it has been done before could it be done again the pro gay ssion of parliament closing down this session of bottom of the queen would have to be involved she'd have to order it it would be reopened immediately with the queen's speech in order to be able to put the vote to a third to parliament for

there was still some confusion about his motive but acknowledged he was known to its origins. there are many questions in rumors it is still unclear what the motives are behind this attack now predominantly there's a sense of horror and disbelief which prevails over the terrible events of today that innocent people have been taken away from their relatives in this way this shooting on the country's busy public transport has shocked people who are on the cusp of violent crime. forensic teams are working through the night to uncover what really happened here. and that means. a quarter in chechnya has sentenced a human rights defender to four years in prison after he was found guilty of drugs possession but his supporters say the charges against him a fabricated step. for more than nine hours i you kitty it was

today if was investigating cases of torture and extrajudicial killings at the time of his arrest he had continued the work after his predecessor natalee. was murdered ten years ago. this is not about the verdict but about the u.s. criminal prosecution about the fact that the drugs were planted and that it was impossible to prove his innocence after the drugs were planted in his car drugs were also planted in our office this means that they're ready to use any possible measures against independent human rights defender. well prosecutors had asked for a four year prison sentence the judge decided that duty of conserve his time in a so-called colony settlement which will give him some freedom i have to do your first trial a new level of hypocrisy and cynicism is a prison sentence is seen as a strong message to women rights defenders to stay away from chechnya marking a new phase in the crackdown by chechen against opposing voices. leader.
