being his past as an instrument of pinochet's brutal dictatorship a father tries to forget. but his son's quest for answers reveals there are often two sides to even the darkest of stories witness the color of the chameleon at this time on al-jazeera. today we are attempting to take the future of the north korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime. a unanimous vote at the u.n. security council america settles for new watered down sanctions against pyongyang.
again my name's peter w. watching al jazeera live from our headquarters here in doha also coming up the prime minister of bangladesh visits for injured muslims who fled to her country promising not to tolerate any injustice against them plus. the survey they have a. british legislation to stop pulling out of the e.u. passes his first main hurdle in parliament. also this hour on scene and land al jazeera goes on a clandestine mission with one of the most elite units in the philippines military . south korea and japan have praised the u.n. security council and their decision to impose new sanctions on north korea the u.s. wanted tougher measures but they were eventually watered down diplomatic out as
a james bays has more now from the united nations. this was the result the u.s. ambassador nikki haley wanted even though she had to weaken her resolution to get it a unanimous vote by the security council to punish north korea for its latest nuclear test today the security council has acted in a different way today we are attempting to take the future of the north korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime china and russia may have voted for the resolution but both said it was only part of the solution the u.s. and south korea they said should stop military exercises and remove the threat missile defense system and there should be new talks new that so it's a big mistake to underestimate this russia china initiative it remains on the table at the security council and we will insist on it being considered. it's pretty clear that the u.s. had wanted to push through
a much tougher resolution this is the text that was voted on by the security council but out zeros obtained an earlier version that was circulated last week by comparing the two you can see the items that the u.s. had to drop to get russian and chinese support the original draft included a total ban of sale of oil petroleum and gas to north korea that was changed to some restrictions on sales it also had included a total ban on hiring and paying workers for north korea the original version also called for a travel ban and assets freeze on the north korean leader and freezing the finances of north korea's national airline one of the u.s. is closest allies says despite the changes this was a strong resolution a massive you say it's a robust resolution yet it's watered down from the earlier draft and key elements be taken out of what's called negotiation and that's what we do here in the
security council there is a significant prize in keeping the whole of the security council united and that is without doubt why the u.s. decided to withdraw items from its original draft the trumpet ministration has very few good options when it comes to north korea but a veto by russia and or china would have divided the international community making things even more difficult james pays out his era at the united nations ok let's take you live to seoul and our correspondent in south korea kathy novak kathy any chance to gauge reaction there yet. well the south korean government has welcomed this resolution south korea's foreign minister said that the country had been in close consultation with the united states and other security council members in the lead up to this vote and she said that oil must be a part of it now as we heard there of course it did not go quite as far as the u.s. had wanted in terms of cutting off the oil supply to north korea but it was
included in the resolution and south korea for its part has welcomed the fact that more action has been taken and indeed that china and russia voted for the resolution and that this message has been sent it says by the international community to north korea that further provocations will be met with international pressure and further sanctions so all eyes now will be on what north korea does next we heard from north korea in the lead up to the vote that it was threatening through its state news agency that there would be reaction from north korea if sanctions did go through threatening the permanent extinction of the united states and we've been hearing from the south korean government that it says it believes that north korea is preparing for another missile test at any time and indeed that the nuclear test facility is also prepared for another nuclear test so south korea has been reassessing its policy and its position when it comes to dealing with the ongoing threats from north korea and it says that the sanctions are
a step in the right direction peter what we've heard nothing groups nine trenches of sanctions going back to two thousand and six now the proceeding ates set of sanctions didn't change north korea's pause why should this. well that is a good question and if they will be implemented as the other question of course china plays a big part in this it is significant that china was on board with china did not want to see the complete cut off of oil to north korea does not want to see a collapse of the regime and risk refugees flowing into china and indeed having a unified korea if there were a collapse of the north korean government and having u.s. troops on its borders so these sanctions as we know had been watered down and what the south korean foreign minister had been saying in the lead up to the vote is that her government believes that the north korean threat will remain a problem for years to come effectively admitting that rounds of sanctions have
basically had no effect that north korea continues to have these provocations and there are expectations of more to come peter kathy thank you will be jay kim is a political commentator and drunk professor and cook university of foreign studies he says the new sanctions won't stop north korea's nuclear ambitions. this is not the strongest measure ever let's take a look at what's inside twenty seven thirty five u.s.t.r. un security council resolution here i mean keeping the the crude oil at four hundred four million gallons per year that's no change there and then textile ban textile exports then what does that mean actually real this here don't really see much meat in the resolution of course united states and inside the allies that war very hard for it but really this here believe that china and russia have made it very clear that they do not one north korea's denuclearization those korea with the nuclear weapons that's what they like to be in place so that there will act against
their will act as a power checking against the united states presence here china and russia especially china does not want north korea to collapse so real those here have long argued that economic sanctions and u.n. sanctions will not work because china does not want north korea to collapse which means we will never see a sanction that's crippling that's having crippling effect on north korea and this is the same thing again the original version that united states and its allies have worked very hard on had some very serious clauses but they were all kind of shut down and this came as a compromise because united states and allies cannot afford to have russia and china stay out of it so this was a definite compromise but as a result of it a real this here is see u.n. sanctions again making almost close to no difference. the bangladeshi prime minister sheikh hasina has gone to camps housing or hinge of muslims thousands of
fled violence in neighboring me and mark the camps there are struggling to cope with more than three hundred thousand injured we've arrived since fighting began in the northern state of rakhine in me and on. sheikh hasina to help them and said she would not tolerate any injustice against them or injured fighters attacked police posts triggering what me and martin's military called clearing operations britain and sweden are requesting a un security council meeting on violence against the range of muslims difficult pollen reports now from cox is bizarre. the bangladeshi parliament has been discussing the situation and they've decided to send a statement to me and maher urging me and mark to take back the refugees and create a safe zone for them the bangladeshi prime minister is due to arrive here at this camp which has grown since hundreds of thousands of refugees have arrived here in bangladesh and recent weeks she's expected to announce relief efforts for them the moment the only kind of relief efforts we're seeing are mostly local charities and
international n.g.o.s and the relief it is not being distributed evenly according to the refugees here they say it's mostly package just thrown out of trucks and whoever can get them gets them but most people do not have access to any kind of assistance or any kind of supplies the bangladeshi government is also trying to document them not trying to register into the database not just the new arrivals but also the ones that arrived about a year ago the prime minister has also said that you're marking two thousand acres of land to set up more camps for those that are arriving but they're also discussing a controversial plan to move them to an island that many aid agencies are saying it's on in habits of oh there's nothing there but sand a crucial moment in the brics that process british m.p.'s have given their final approval to a bill that would give ministers power to bypass parliament and create new laws the government says it is essential to allow the u.k. to leave the european union smoothly but as lawrence li explains the critics are
warning it will actually undermine democracy oh. there are still losing the u.k. remains in the european union but judging by this tiny process outside parliament increasingly few believe it's actually possible. for the basin votes were just one stage of an enormous process albeit an extremely important one the government's hopes to hand power to ministers to be able to change e.u. laws in separatist ones. out consulting parliament so many opposition politicians say that is a threat to democracy but a notable number who support breck's it voted not with their party but with the governments they said must be made to happen i knew it would become precocious and i knew it would be difficult and i knew we would see something of always saying now which is a rear guard reaction from those people who prefer the european union to make our laws rather than the people of the united kingdom will be i will fight i'm
sure turn this bill into one the ruling conservatives ordered every single m.p. to toe the line even the most passionate pro europeans for me there's no two more fundamental british values than democracy and the rule of law and this bill strikes at the heart of both democracy and the rule of law because it prevents parliament from scrutinizing laws and it prevents the courts from ensuring that ministers any abuse that powers. want to question is that the government lost the vote it probably would have collapsed it didn't so the process moves on it's all enormously difficult. for supporters of brecht's in the whole point is to make the country more democratic to increase parliamentary sovereignty and yet the complaint says they're doing something profoundly anti democratic to get there and that's very uncomfortable for many m.p.'s it's also procedural as of yet there is nobody in there offering any clear vision as to what britain is supposed to look like after
bricks it in twenty nine seen. the al-jazeera in london. last minute still to come for you here on al-jazeera including these two. the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu makes a controversial visit to argentina. also ahead the world's largest car maker makes a major move towards electric vehicles. how the weather really does look automaton across a good part of europe now we've got bands of cloud and rain streaming in from the west still a big mass of storms thunderstorms just banging away across central parts of the med for the h. we are taking to the balkans and just sliding up into that western side of russia
still some pretty heavy downpours to come here then as we go on through the next couple of days ahead of that still warm and dry will see book arrested twenty nine thirty five and anchoress a very warm sunshine here on the side of that will twenty i saw some betrayed don't see babba further north. quite a wind blowing across london and paris had around seventeen or eighteen degrees over the next couple days perhaps a touch warm for paris on wednesday but you can see the bands of cloud and right never really too far away from that northwestern corner through the british isles into france germany and the low countries further south it looks fine and dry once again ankara thirty two celsius and thirty two will be the top temperature for a good pass hole for greece as well all the balls of africa. more hot sunshine the . temperatures here but around thirty eight thirty nine degrees over the next couple of days not quite as warm as that across the northwest but warm enough for a bat with a high of twenty eight. right
welcome back you without a zero of your headlines so far the u.n. security council has agreed to impose new sanctions on north korea but they're not as tough as the u.s. had hoped the sanctions restrict fuel supplies and blocked pyongyang textile exports. bangladesh's prime minister sheikh hasina has visited one hinge or refugee camps for the first time since thousands began arriving from me in march two weeks ago she's not to tolerate any injustices against them the camps are struggling to cope with more than three hundred thousand people who've escaped rakhine state and british m.p.'s have given their first approval to a bill that would give ministers power to bypass parliament and create new laws the government says it's essential to allow the u.k. to leave the european union smoothly. the number of refugees and migrants arriving in europe through spain has more than doubled this year the head of the border agency says it's registered almost fourteen thousand arrivals in spain from morocco it's not clear if that rise is due to tougher controls around libya which would
force refugees to take alternative routes getting an education is out of reach for millions of child refugees around the world that's according to a new u.n. report on the lives of school age refugees between five and seventeen children are supposed to receive two hundred days of schooling every year but the study has found that three and a half million child refugees didn't get a single day of schooling in twenty sixteen just sixty one percent of child refugees got places in primary school that's in comparison with ninety one percent of children not living in war and famine zones the situation is worse for teenagers in the study shows that just twenty three percent were enrolled at a second reschooling last year elsewhere in the world that figure is eighty four percent just one percent of refugee youth attend college or university compared to thirty. six percent of youth globally ok let's take the story to my colleague mohammed jump june who's joining us live from beirut mohammed what's it like the
children and teenagers in lebanon. let me tell you first where we are we're at a community center and what is how mood in beirut is here in lebanon behind me you're seeing children these are syrian refugee children who even during their summer are actually continuing to learn in these programs that are run by n.g.o.s and supported by you in h.c.r. now in lebanon there are over one million syrian refugees at least five hundred thousand of that number are children in the past couple of years the enrollment rates have gone up so this past year the enrollment rate for syrian refugee children is right around one hundred ninety five thousand the year before that it was right around one hundred fifty five thousand still it's not nearly where it should be so joining us to talk about the dire consequences when it comes to education refugee children here in lebanon this is scott craig he's the spokesperson for you in h.c.r. here in lebanon scott i want to ask you first about the report that was released today about how dire the situation remains for refugee children throughout the
world. who have been first of all for having made the pieces really important to get the word out about this so i sort of said they cited the statistics for school made here in lebanon broadly speaking that correlates to what we're seeing in the global education report that we released today that report indicates that around three and a half million refugees children worldwide are out of school and that as you go the education system primary secondary to higher tier sherry education gets worse so about sixty percent refugee children are now enrolled in primary schools goes down to the roundabout of course here in secondary schools and for tertiary education that's just one per se and so what we're saying with this report. first of all to highlight the numbers not not to get lost in these cameras because they can be a bit abstract but to really say wow while the trend is moving broadly in the right
direction they remain is an awful lot to be done and that correlates to what we're seeing here in lebanon roughly speaking with the numbers as well and room it is going up but it's not where it needs to be and i ask you more specifically about the challenges for refugee children here in lebanon where there is a lot of fear that if they are laborers now trying to support their families they are being exploited as well yeah i mean that's a good point and i think in terms of barriers actually one of the reasons why we've come to one of the centers to show you in your viewers so this is you said is in a community center here which you in a.c.r. supports the idea of this is that it's designed to to really be community focused in trying to deliver education for kids so this is a homework where young syrian refugee children are here you actually hear them learning french and english lessons because of course that's one that's also a barrier. labor and labor can be a barrier in households where parents have very limited income language is another
barrier such as such as we're hearing now so the language of instruction in lebanon is primarily in english and french syrian refugee kids primarily of course have been educated in arabic so these groups. support things like language lessons they support homework supports they they also help parents so one of the one of the barriers may be physically getting your kids to school so there are no school fees in lebanon for public schools but there may be barriers in terms of physically being able to pay for the bus to get your kid to school so groups like this can also help organize physically getting the kids says scott craig spokesperson for you in a.c.r. her love and i thank you very much for joining us there you have it peter on a day when the u.n.h.c.r. is really trying to highlight to the world how complicated the situation remains for refugee children trying to get an edge of. nations around the world there are still a lot of concern here in lebanon about the fact that many of these children may turn out to be a lost generation. mahmoud thank you. because really prime minister benjamin
netanyahu is in argentina on the first visit by an israeli leader he's expected to meet the president legacy of mackley and pay homage to victims of attacks on the israeli embassy and the jewish community center in the one nine hundred ninety s. daniel swam the reports from buenos aires. there was tight security in some disruption for the visit to argentina by benjamin netanyahu the first by a sitting israeli prime minister it was welcomed by argentina's jewish community the largest in latin america. many israeli diplomats and ministers have visited argentina during the best moments of the jewish community that's why we have such strong ties with israel they've always been there to help. but there will also be protests including from within argentina's jewish community against. government which we believe racists is. supporting the.
it's a government that ok it's. it's very close to big government. who is also in the early word and they are a little conservative government and they are very good friends very very good business i think. netanyahu is also criticized at home for escaping corruption investigations into himself and his family. the prime minister traveling with a delegation of thirty business leaders will meet arjun time president machree and pay homage to the victims of two attacks in one of cyrus on israeli and jewish sites in the one nine hundred ninety is the jewish communities relationship with argentina has been a long and sometimes troubled one it was at this site in one thousand nine hundred two that the bomb exploded in what was then the israeli embassy killing twenty nine
two years later a similar attack at the jewish community center in one of cyrus killed eighty five the perpetrators have still not been found and tried. the political repercussions of that failure are still being felt here more than twenty years later the visit also marks the return of the israeli airline el-al which last touched down in one osiris in may nine hundred sixty that's when israeli agents angered the argentine north or it is by bundling aboard an el al flight the fugitive nazi out of eichmann who had sought refuge in argentina they took him to israel where he was tried and hanged for war crimes netanyahu flies on to colombia or mexico on route to the united nations general assembly in new york and. one of cyrus. now the congress in guatemala has protected the president jimmy morales from facing trial over irregular finances from his election campaign lawmakers voted to keep his immunity from prosecution

only get worse if you have ground which is a departure from the heat and takes of the past ten or fifteen years it is an application of a new teaching that the caliphate must have very thoroughly and they must be prepared to defend it the die for. months later that did happen members of the merged with another local armed group called them out they took control of several parts of mirali city in the southern philippines the group raised its black flag in several key government buildings. over the work of the philippine maybe bessel warfare group is going to be a game changer here since the crisis began they were able to secure. the most critical. part of this week they have managed to intercept reinforcements and this in a repartee they have also captured. them out a group. i joined them on one of the reconnaissance but.
we navigate through the dark waters of lake one of the most perilous areas in the middle now region. we are now in the enemy's line of fire just five hundred meters from the main battle area. and then suddenly the mouth has said several houses on fire we are now visible from the port controlled by the multi-group the commander says we have to turn back. over on the other night the seals take us to a different location the mouth they are under heavy bombardment from the philippine military. but they are fighting back and even this position is targeting. the seals are rarely seen and heard and they prefer it that way
a small specialized unit that also admits that the fight against them out is already one of the hardest battles it has ever faced but they remain determined despite no sign that the fighting will and anytime soon. we see the southern philippines electric cars taking center stage at the frankfurt motor show in germany this week volkswagen the world's biggest carmaker. electric vehicles. boats wagon media night in frankfurt ahead of the world's biggest annual. two years after the company's emissions votes wagons chief executive is showing the product of some commercial soul searching businesses and commitment this is a commitment by two thousand and thirty we will have electrified our entire range of vehicles i think we're on a road and progressive truck. the company paid out four point three billion dollars
