south than sherry way more make its way across the northwest as we go on through choose day with the winds coming in from the northwest a cooler direction that will just freshen things up a touch but still be to blustery showers just but even more sunshine than showers i suspect although the showers will just pop up a little into central parts as we go on through wisest across the med it's fine and dry for the most part with plenty of warm sunshine. and that warm sunshine extends across northern parts of africa the showers continue across central africa into the gulf of guinea from the highlands and right across west africa some heavy downpours cause some flooding into liberia maybe into sierra leone over the next couple of days and it continues to edge its way a little further north. from . frank assessments tourism but the income stream is dead in the water what's been the result in poaching quite significantly informed opinions there has been

10:16 am
a land sea and air embargo on cata its legal bid to remove the air blockade now hinges on a ruling by the international court of justice due to be issued on tuesday barra has a preview. this has been a long battle. the international court of justice is the issue its verdict on a dispute over space rights. it's began in june 2017 when sandy arabia u.a.e. but her reign and egypt severed ties with qatar and imposed a land sea and blockade qatar took the case to the un calling on the international civil aviation authority to declare the blockade illegal as part of the dispute the blockade in countries have barred qatari aircraft from entering their space which qatar says violates the convention on international civil
10:17 am
aviation referred to as the chicago convention the blockade in countries challenge the qatari move saying the u.n. agency doesn't have jurisdiction to handle the case but into a $1018.00 the international civil aviation authority reject of that claim insisting that it does have jurisdiction to mars stone but we are not there yet in terms of qatar's progress because while qatar will move a step closer into regaining airspace access that they like the rest of the world are entitled to fly over actually i k i have never dealt with anything quite like this in over their 70 years of existence then you can expect running in parallel to this a separate case that will be seeking compensation this isn't the 1st legal fight between qatar and its neighbors in 2018 the qatari government took legal action
10:18 am
against the u.a.e. at the hague based court accusing it of a series of measures targeting qatari nationals. those measures broke up families denied qatari students access to universities and medical facilities in the u.a.e. the court ordered the u.a.e. to allow families to be reunited and qatari students to be given the chance to complete their education in the emirates but i think that sort of part of the strategy. you know they're going to. use them or it's a very sensible strategy to adopt is that. you need to have a solid legal basis for saying that the blockade was was our law or and the consequences or the blockade results in in legitimate legal action being taken international efforts to mend fences between qatar and the blockade in countries have so far failed and the international community has long been concerned that the
10:19 am
blockade of qatar has undermined stability in the region. al-jazeera. well it's now been 5 years since the iran nuclear agreement was signed in vienna but its future is uncertain after president trump decided to withdraw from the dail and $28.00 team since then it's led to increasing tension between washington tara and the other thing. democratic editor james baker has no. july 25th these are the signatories of the iran nuclear deal 5 years on of the 8 top officials only the foreign ministers of iran russia and china are still in their posts but the real survivor some would say against the odds is the deal itself it was the culmination of years of negotiation and the final round of talks in the july heat wave in vienna was intense and difficult the key participants only
10:20 am
glimpse briefly between meetings are you confident you can get a deal this bizzare. i have to be hopeful were his words before returning to the talks in which according to a number of accounts the french took the toughest line with iran their chief negotiator at the time was ambassador nicholas. ambassador if you look at it now do you think you could have got a better deal. i just happened to aren't you know it's always like that. you're out there shooting at us reach an agreement and if you don't you have a choice i got it get me man it's our. fate and i think we decide all of. that i think it rich respectively it is a good thing that it is a rather stick remount if you were to ask me 5 years. what was my set of mine in
10:21 am
those days i was still skeptical and 2015 that tried to shoot in movement it would work but one man has made no secret of his view of the deal the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into president trump finally pulled the u.s. out of the deal in 2018 it survived even though iran is not now fully complying with all its conditions the biggest test though is still to come here at the un security council us ambassador to the un kelly craft wants the security council to extend the arms embargo on iran that expires later this year if she doesn't get her way she's threatening to use the nuclear deals most draconian clause what's known as snap back triggering the return of all international sanctions on iran former french negotiator nicol our delivery is now his country's ambassador to the u.n.
10:22 am
what happens if the u.s. try to trigger snap back. you know this is stimulation we see. i think. it's for us. in germany. is. this you classroom work place it's thought the u.s. democratic presidential candidate joe biden would likely seek to rejoin the nuclear deal if he's elected in november but diplomats fear if snapback has been triggered by the trumpet ministration there may be no deal left to rejoin jamesburg al-jazeera at the united nations well as a result of the sanctions following the u.s. withdrawal from the nuclear deal iran is now asking south korea to release billions of dollars that are as for oil exports and transactions dating back several years speaking to al jazeera the foreign ministry says tear on is negotiating with the
10:23 am
government and so on. we will explore all legal and diplomatic avenues to bring this money back to the country it's held illegally in south korean banks and their reasoning is totally illegal and irrational the us is putting pressure on them that's not related to us it's between them and the us our nation wants the money it earned through illegal trade barack we've had a historic and traditional relationship with south korea but these actions have negative impacts on this relationship. former british socialized and longtime friend of convicted sex offender jeffrey abstain will face a judge in new york on tuesday maxwell has been charged for her involvement in and alleged sex trafficking operation had offenses expected to try to get her out of the jail where she is currently on suicide watch cable elizondo reports from brooklyn. the metropolitan detention center in brooklyn has a troubled history last year the entire prison was without power for more than a week leaving inmates without heat during winter last month the detainee died

10:25 am
a number reasons why i don't think miss knox will leave prison alive 1st and foremost because of the information that she knows but secondly. i think that. when forced to reflect on her life's activities and what she has done in the past it may catch up with her and whether she decides to take her own life or whether and i guess i'll be set this way you know prisoners are not friendly to child abusers at maxwell's arraignment and bail hearing on tuesday prosecutors will point to the $1000000.00 home she was living in at the time of her arrest as proof she has access to funds and is a flight risk if she is granted bail it's expected prosecutors will push maxwell to reveal all she knows in exchange for avoiding a trial possibly getting a lighter sentence but for this to happen she has to remain alive. how does it
