10:03 am
on the previous voyage are now being followed up and checked on to see whether or not they too have been infected as a result of those passengers on board but the moment this particular vessel behind me the cruise ship the world drains cruise ship it is in quarantine people have been emerging side there they rooms to have a look but at the moment they are in lockdown this also comes with another cruise ship in japan and yokohama where we've had a number of other corona virus infections being confirmed on that particular ship which had those people who are now being treated but the rest of course are in quarantine and as you mentioned taiwan is also now banned all international arrivals of these cruise ships to simply try and stop the spread of this the rapid spread of the krajina virus of these cruise ships at the moment all precautions are being taken on stuff stuff as well as the passengers after a number of stuff on this ship behind me also confirmed that they were feeling some symptoms that were associated with the corona virus so at the moment chris ships in
10:04 am
japan and in hong kong are in lockdown and in terms of the wider. sure in china particularly how is it coping seeing that it's now confirmed thousands more cases. as you mention as well before that the death toll does continue to rise and we've had the 563 deaths confirmed so far 72 or 73 yesterday in china the medical supplies are in short supply we have got the hospitals that are being built to treat the rising number of infections in china but the treatment kits in the medical supplies are now being sent into those provinces reporting the highest rates of infections and they are being brought in by helicopters any means of transport to try and get them to those people in need not china's nanjing city which is about $5000000.00 people it's also now limited access to the village compound simply to prevent the virus spreading and of course the chinese new year holiday break which should have ended by now it's been extended to fit pretend simply to try and stop the mass numbers of people traveling in big numbers across
10:05 am
china and i should also start the 99 percent of the world's cases of the crime of virus are still in china and the world health organization has also said it's starting to transform transport around 250000 face masks and treatment kits to those areas most affected or writes sarah kliff thank you for that update from hong kong. the u.s. president donald trump has been acquitted in his senate impeachment trial he was charged with abusing presidential powers obstruction of congress one republican broke ranks but it wasn't enough to see trump removed from office democrats are vowing to press ahead with more investigations. reports from washington. it is therefore the outcome was as expected donald trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles donald trump only the 3rd u.s.
10:06 am
president to be impeached now also the 3rd u.s. president to be acquitted the white house called it full of vindication and exoneration mr romney all but one republican senator voted not guilty on both articles of impeachment the lone defector was mitt romney the utah senator who in 2012 with the republican presidential nominee my faith is at the heart of who i am romney said in an emotional floor speech his conscience was more important than party loyalty he voted guilty on abuse of power what he did was not perfect no it was a flagrant assault on our electoral rights our national security and our fundamental values a few other republicans said they believe put trump did was wrong but didn't rise to remove all from office others blasted the democrats' efforts to remove the 45th us president i worry about the future of the presidency after what's happened here
10:07 am
ladies and gentlemen you will come to regret this whole process all the democrats voted to convict trump on both charges they voice disappointment after his acquittal but did not admit defeat may yet face further investigation in the democrat controlled house and make no mistake about it the drip drip drip of evidence is going to keep coming out with each new revelation the message to the house of representatives don't do this again. now with the impeachment officially behind him from conspiring to for the november election whether all this has helped him or hurt him as a candidate is the big question castro al-jazeera washington. well richard goodstein is a democratic strategist and a former legal advisor to the white house during bill clinton's impeachment trial he says mitt romney's support for a conviction to them bold and other republican politicians in both cases i think
10:08 am
there was an expectation after the house impeached that the senate was going to acquit was going to basically not convict him the one difference though is that this was the 1st impeachment trial in the history of the united states were a senator of the party of the president who was impeached voted to convict him so mitt romney did a lot of things today by breaking this news but i think the words that he used and the sense of conviction and putting country above party is something that democrats whoever the presidential nominee is or frankly democrats going forward will seize upon to say we all don't have to fall prey to what. sort of force donald trump has over most republicans that people can rise above that so in that sense by the time of the clinton trial bill clinton had apologized for his behavior
10:09 am
donald trump to this moment still says that his behavior was perfect and i think the one answer is that when the impeachment trial was over in 1990 against bill clinton his popularity was in the 6065 percent range donald trump still in the forty's notwithstanding the fact that the economy is reasonably strong so i think the public ultimately soured on his behavior and ultimately things are so partisan that there was a split you know virtually all republicans going with him and every single democrat against him. after days of delays in technical issues the preliminary results from democratic caucuses have 2 presidential contenders virtually tied so while early counts. lightly ahead of bernie sanders the gap has now narrowed significantly with nearly all results. party officials are scrambling to verify the remaining results it comes as new hampshire prepares to hold the 1st democratic primary election on

tuesday. at least 10 people have been killed and more than 100 injured in the southern iraqi city of najaf that's when the supporters of the shiite cleric were. attacked an anti government. fights broke out between the sutton has a different time supported and oppose the protesters who want the removal of iraq's ruling elites let's get an update from imran khan he's joining us from baghdad so having said that what are we to read into the situation in najaf and what happened and why some of saddam's protesters have attacked the anti-government protesters his supporters rather. there's a real concern hey in baghdad and across the south of what exactly very influential shia cleric one of the most influence or shia clerics is up to now he has flip flopped between supporting the protesters and not supporting the protest is that what he seems to be doing is putting his backing behind iraq's security forces he's
10:11 am
already said that here in baghdad he wants all the bridges and all the roads leading here to be open he wants the protesters to simply remain intact or a square and not be out of this area but he has a very different agenda to the protesters the protest movement is very clear they want 'd a change a radical change in the way iraq is a government actually wants something slightly different and much more conservative what he wants is the writ of the iraqi government to be applied here in baghdad and across the south he looks to. simply remain where they add to a bay below you also has a very different a very radically different agenda when it comes to. the idea of u.s. troops being in iraq he wants them out and that's not something that many of the protests people want to back because they say we have what agenda anticorruption.
10:12 am
antigovernment agenda that we have now so what's happening what's reading fateful for a lot of people is the fact that several said it may well be trying to co-opt to take over the protest movement but it gets deeper than that what is a worry for most people in iraq is this government. has put his support behind the prime minister says that he wants. to become the next part of iraq so what he's trying to do is put make him follow an agenda that will have any impact on future governments that will be elections call at some point so he's trying to manipulate the election system as well according to a lot of the protesters and political analysts that we've spoken to so there seems to be a fish a very big fish between the protesters and look. at this is going to be crucial in the next few days because that they say that crack is only going to get wider ok imran khan thank you for that update from baghdad. still ahead on al-jazeera. an
