a missile. more from washington, d.c. >> reporter: clearly, there is concern. l. here we have a statement of progress in north korea's nuclear progress. there is the sense that to give an outraged statement is exactly what the north koreans would want. south korea ens say maps they have perfectly an engine to propel to the united states. however, as far as the south koreans are concerned, they don't think the north koreans have a reliable intercontinental missile to attach their engine to or the ability to attach a nuclear warhead. north koreans say they have that capeability now. we have a major north korean ruling party conference coming up next month. some are wondering whether this
is more about domestics economics and kim jung un. let's speak to an expert in modern affairs. thanks for being with us on "the newshour." north korea appears to be conducting some sort of test almost every other week now. was there anything significant about this particular one? >> i don't think so. as always, it's outside to tell whether a boastful but dangerous regime which has successfully defined the world and made four nuclear tests, knowing what they've got, how good it is, as your correspondent said, if they fit together. i would see it more as a secret. i would emphasize what he said
about the upcoming party congress. it's not so much about scarying us, though they do try to do that a lot. it's about bolstering leader. >> why now? >> well, again, there are always more questions than answers with nor korea but i will do my best. he does seem to care about due process in a very limited sense. i would circumscribe that. he does in particular want the party, the normally ruling party
in the old sort of communist fashion when there were more regimes. china still has a ruling party in the same way. he wants the party to be more institutionalized. it lapsed under his father who favored the army. so, it's not getting rid of generals. he rotates the top brass at extraordinary speed to make sure the party is in charge and the unstated assumption is that he is firmly in charge of the party as well. it's a very interesting move. they managed without the for 35 years. he didn't have to do this. the world watching carefully every step that is made in north korea but i want to talk a little bit about chooi. how is it positioned on north korea? has that changed in the last couple of years? do you think? is there a softening of its support in some way?
there is. china must be very conflicted. yes expect china to sign up to quite such harsh united nations sanctions this time. we got used to a pattern over a decade now, north korea does a test, a nuclear missile test. there are u.n. sanctions. they are usually watered down so as to get them unanimous so that china and russia are support them and china in particular which china implements this them. this time, in early days, yes china has signed up to much harsher sanctions which do ban some regular trade, exports like coal which are very important to north korea and preliminary signs are that china is enforcing they want. i don't think the calculus doesn't want north korea to collapse. i think beijing is finding it difficult to juggle that at the moment but i think they will grit their teeth and support
north korea. but they are trying to apply at least some of the screws and go along with what the west is doing to show north korea they mean business. >> thank you very much for your time. thank you. ? >> thank you. people are returning to palmeria in syria which was under isil control until recently. it was recaptured last month after intention fighting with isil. the armed group took control of the area last may the russian army has been working to remove land minds. and first fight with pro-government fighters, russian airstrikes have targeted the opposition of the al-nusra front positions in the southern alleppo country side. hundreds have been holding their position on the
syria/israel border. civil yajz continue to pay the highest price. osama bin javade reports. >> more syrians up radioed from from their homes. hundreds of families have been forced to leave as fighting between opposition rebels and isil-affiliated fighters has intensified. >> mothers were carried out on horseback. those who refused were forced to make the journey on foot for hours. >> the southernmost part of syria straddling the israeli and jordanian borders. local groups joined isil. both sides have pushed back regime forces over the years. now fighting between opposition groups and isil affiliated fighters has intensified.
>> opening up a front against the rebels which is different from the prior status quo where the move was at war with al-nusra and it's coalition of alleys where now you see an active new offensive and activation, i think, of isil s groups have been fighting to keep darah out of. but now there is a three-way fight between isil, governmental fighters t mahmoud is forced to turn a livestock truck into a new home. >> we are forced to run for our lives. we went through these steep ridges with our children.
we were made homeless by the regime. what kind of arrive is it? is this a life? >> after five years of war, life in syria is really just a matter of survival. osama bin javade. al jazeera. >> violence at the labor reform protests. police fired tear gas. reforms are being championed by france's socialist government in the hope they will create more flexibility. the workers fear it will erode their workplace protection: thousands have rallied in warsaw to tighten already strict abortion laws. the church has called for pregnancy termination to be illegal in all circumstances. it has angered procetests.
>> their message clear that tightening abortion laws in poland will be a disaster for women's rights. poland already has some of the strictest laws in europe. under the latest proposes, abortions will be banned almost all together. other mothers whose lives are in danger will be exempt. there will be jail terms for people who perform abortions. >> only education and cont contraception can change things. >> society has become more politicized and issues put forward by different groups have had a polarizing effect. bortion being one of them. changing the law could put poland out of step with much of the eu. a private group is pushing for
change now. they have had open support from senior government ministers. >> last weekend when a letter from the bishop was red out, it prompted some walkout did and staged demonstrations. ola told her, her priest was applauded. >> i think this is a very good proposal that we cannot select people who are weak or strong. the polish state should guarantee all of its citizens, including those in a prenatal stage a did i have anythingfied life old symbols of back street abortions were being held up. some felt women faced too many obstacles. if more were put in plates t would force them underground. >> it would be a total disaster because it would also force women in later stages of pressure meant that to seek procedures which would be a lot more difficult for them and
dangerous for them. they would be criminally charged for doing anything. >> both sides are promising to ramp up the pressure. both argue they are preserve human rights. in warsaw. >> it's estimated more than 11,000 refugees remain stranded at idimi in ni camp on the greek/macedonian border. moosedonia has refused passingage for weeks. in response, people have been block, the international railway line. a group of about 30 refugees from syria and iraq are accusing macedonia of forcing them back to idimini. they say they were given permission to continue their journey. >> on march the 4th, we went in legally and were begin maps of macedonia. we went in and part of our group

water-spreading dam have helped farmers like mohammed enormously to help control the flow of rain when it does come. farms in the area have doubled their agricultural output. one of the flash points is the texas tension between farmers and those rearing animals. said we need more roots for our livestock to pass through. when herders can't find them, they allow their animals to graze on farmland. this often triggers violence. that's practical cal action is bringing the communities together to negotiate routes for
lifestock. >> despite the lage of ran, ending this year's harvest with a better outlook because of the dam and the new techniques he implemented. he noses if his 12 children continue farming, they will have to evolve. their livelihoods will depend on it. natasha gname, north darfur state. >> bernie sappeders has won the presidential caucus in wyomings. it is the latest nat string of victories for the vermont senator still trailing his party's frontrunner hillary clinton. per you'veians go to the polls onsurd. the frontrunner is unlikely to win in the first round, 40sing a run-off election later in the

>> a former economy minister or finance minister with 20.3% of the vote and men to dosa, the youngest candidate at all, 35-year-old left wing congresswoman who has 20.1% of the valid votes which means that they are both in a tie. now, wouldn't it be easy for fijumori to win only this first round? analysts don't believe she will be able to. it's 50% plus she would need to win the presidency. it's more likely there will be a second round. but fujamori has lost between 1 and 3 percentage points in the last week only and the one and perhaps one the most important things is that the anti-vote,
the people whether or not say they will never vote for kaik kaiko fujamori has risen to 51%. >> what's the mood like? are people excited about this election? >> i think it's completely the other way around, felicity. i think people are, in fact, angry. one of the candidates was the answer for the whole anti-vote and he was barred for the election for a technicality really. also, the same tribunal barred another candidate for buying and

green land, iceland is one major component of the redistribution model that we have analyzed in this particular paper. >> should we be concerned about the fact that this polar motion has effectively changed direction if you like? should we be worried about that? >> it is affects the daily ol a global scale, no. but in terms of some type of every day application, for example, to get more accurate results from your gps, for example, so this kind of motion is very important to understand scientists have been measuring it for more than a century now. how does that monitoring and rye search help scientists? >> that's a very good question.
it is e stab englishing a powerful connection of how the poll is moving and what that means with that, i mean and we also have a very accurate measurement of the motion of the poll that goes back in time to the year 1989 meaning we have more than 115 years record of polar motion data. this is such an accurate set of data. what will come based upon the results in this paper, so this data you utilize to constrain or to fine tune the morals of the past climate change. >> way, we will have more confidence on the moral of the future of climate change. so, it's a very powerful kind of
