6:06 am
cabinets hand the cabinet of the government here that's something that kind of escalated the situation we also know that a special team has been created that's going to be led by a scientist who who championed the sars epidemic back in 2003 so obviously very seriously being taken here in china but right now as you can see would normally be a very crowded park here in central beijing shut down all right scott heiler with the latest in beijing scott thank you a powerful earthquake has struck eastern turkey killing at least 19 people buildings collapsed into at the center of the magnitude 6.8 quake in alice a province and worsen seekers are searching for dozens of people thought to be trapped in the rubble more than 500 people are reported injured and the epicenter was near a town of about 4000 people that province in a sparsely populated area about 7 our climate is east of the capital ankara.
6:07 am
and this was the moment the earthquake struck and the tremor and erupting at a live broadcast many people ran outdoors for safety with damaged homes are still afraid to return after a series of aftershocks in the region out of serious and purcell is monitoring developments from istanbul. following the earthquake there were also 6 e aftershocks which were a ball 4.0 a current day according to the office shows and disaster management agency search and rescue works are underway we know that we know that there are lots of buildings that were damaged and some of them already collapsed and they are still trying to figure out which buildings are damaged but of course we have to see the light to have proper idea i'm told by the disaster management agency but the airport in is operating there is no cut for the electricity or natural gas but i have to say that this is when terry the weather conditions are bad and people are not able to get
6:08 am
inside their homes their buildings they have to stay outside that's why the n.g.o.s turkish red crescent and disaster management agency have dispatched 490 search and rescue personnel and some tents and. blankets blankets to the area i have to also say that the immediate cities around. have also felt the earthquake and there are there are damages in cities like muleteer for instance especially for to get the strict there are dozens of buildings that are damaged but we have to see the mourning for the details but i have to also underline that turkey is a moment the most suspect clee active countries in the world there are several fault lines. crossing bypassing of the country and ella's the city where the where the earthquake happen is all is it's also on the eastern anatolian fault line which is the 2nd major fault line for turkey and turkey has suffered
6:09 am
a lot from the earthquakes. because democrats have wrapped up the 3rd and final day of opening arguments in the impeachment trial of president on the trauma it's accused him of being the ringleader in efforts to push ukraine to investigate political rival joe biden but there's no sign democrats are convincing republicans to break with their party and allow new evidence into the morning this is very simple it's simple the president abuse the powers entrusted in. by the american people in his skiing to suppress evidence and scape accountability and orchestrate a massive cover up any did so in plain sight and his obstruction remains ongoing and us media say an audio recording from 2018 is emerged in which donald trump appears to demand the removal
6:10 am
of washington's then ambassador to ukraine are you gonna bitch was recalled last april that's almost a year after in there before ding was made in which a voice that sounds like trump says take her out if it's authentic it would support democrats argument that trump's associates tried to oust advantage because she was seen as an obstacle to investigating joe biden for tante standing by on capitol hill so of course technically our president can can remove whatever ambassador he wants to but this obviously is not happening in a vacuum tell us more about how this might play out. it's a bit of a curiosity really at this point it doesn't really have much of an impact on the impeachment proceedings but it may give the democrats more of an in there more of a way to say look there's so much evidence for last time and evidence out that should be included in this impeachment trial that is being ignored when they argue next week about getting further witnesses and documents but love the us is
6:11 am
a business associate of rudy giuliani seem very much with rudy giuliani and another another business associate to have been driving this ukrainian policy that promises various ukrainian investments that would would benefit from the ukrainian policy that we've seen spelled out by the by the democrats and so it's a recording of the trump international hotel here in washington a dinner party and you hear a voice saying. look this woman is just holding everything up she's in the way and she's thing you and donald trump says you know get rid of him. which of course he's perfectly able to do especially the president would say that if they heard the baster was was bad mouth him that it just shows how perhaps he was being how the being manipulated perhaps by giuliani and his business associates to go down this ukrainian ukrainian route. it does certainly undercut specific at all trumps long held contention that you know is this man sort of some pictures taken with left on us but he doesn't know who he is. it's unlikely to have too much of an impact now it will just be another one of his curiosities sort of come up in the
6:12 am
course of in the course of these proceedings he said at the very least it proves that donald trump has not been truthful when he says he doesn't know left part and so having said that what can we expect from donald trump slayers. well something very different to what we've seen over the last few days the democrats meticulously l'engle its evidence bit by bit to show as far as they're concerned that all trumped abused power in obstructed calm gress great pair or a shouldn't zome the constitution and the founding fathers and and and so on and i think what we're going to see from the white house counsel from what we can tell from what they've said is something very different is going to be red meat and it's going to be about ratings really about trying to get public opinion on their side in fact they begin they're supposed to begin their defense on saturday but because as trump says that's a death valley of ratings they're not really going to start their case on saturday after all it's going to be like 2 or 3 hours perhaps where we'll get
6:13 am
a preview of the arguments that were made on monday when the ratings when it's peak primetime ratings. we already sort of know what sort of arguments they can to make it's not going to about the constitution of the framers it's going to be joe biden and hunter biden work corrupt and therefore it's in the national interest to find out what they were doing why that did come to buy and have a plum draw but a allegedly corrupt ukrainian energy company while his father was the vice president surely that conflicts of interest that should be investigated for the for the national interest and so i mean clearly that there's some irony of donald trump apparently being so concerned about nepotism in business and foreign relations and so on so that's could be one argument another is for all the outrage from the democrats about foreign interference in the elections it was the democrats who were paying it forward and i 6 officer to go to russia to try and find dirt on donald trump they they do it all the time in the you know they did it in 2016 you know what with such hypocrisy and thirdly this argument that the reason why more documents of witnesses can't be put into evidence is because there's a separation of power in the constitution which means of the president must be able
6:14 am
to deliberate in private on matters of foreign policy so these are the sort of arguments we're going to start hearing from from saturday but in earnest from for monday may only be just one day of arguments because in the end what they really want to do is have this all. wrapped up before february 4th and all from state of the union address all right thank you live in washington all right still ahead on al-jazeera the road to peace after months of negotiations sudan takes one step closer to unity. a solution in libya. but. we have weather warnings in force across many central and eastern parts of the united states and many see this karl of cloud here well as for you some rather
