7:09 am
in cairo so the arab public is wondering once again where what are we doing with our conflict when they. should be addressed this kind of four hundred number i think the cairo made it also provided the platform for certain nations to slowly defy the counterterrorism narrative and. accusations against. the called terrorist organization so on the one hand we have an issue with the muslim brothers the. nations. who would the small in terms of where we should stand on that we saw in in a nutshell it was a platform for and diplomatic diplomacy. lots more still to come here al-jazeera

7:11 am
hotter than that still in kuwait been very very hot for the past few months forty seven degrees the maximum there on wednesday no real change for us even as we head through thursday before the south is not that hot here in doha and that's because it is more humid and the winds are likely to pick up a little bit over the next few days so fairly even stickier if anything looking at around forty or forty one degrees for the south where with a bit more cloud around the coast of somalia they should see a little bit of drizzle at times twenty eight degrees will be on maximum down to the southern parts of africa and here there's a bit of cloud in the southwest in parts of our map that's ensuring cape town's not too hot will only get to wear around sixteen degrees sixty one in far in height all day and change really as we had three thursday maybe you're just a degree or so high but what you will notice with a bit more sunshine it should feel a little bit warmer towards the east a little bit more in the way of cloud around that will make things a little bit cooler than they might be twenty one degrees the maximum for us but in the sunshine antananarivo will get to twenty eight. there with sponsored by the

7:13 am
round of u.n. sanctions and is threatening and full consequences for the u.s. the measures are aimed at reigning in pyongyang's nuclear program donald trump is warning of stronger action in the future. fifty five people are now confirmed dead in the united states on the caribbean from hurricane it's now we can to a tropical depression and continues to cause havoc with torrential rain and flooding in the united states. and a meeting of the arab league in cairo has descended into a shouting match as ministers from qatar in the four states blockade in the gulf nation traded insults u.a.e. saudi arabia backplane and egypt all cut diplomatic ties with cats are one hundred days ago. just about the top story now there's new u.n. sanctions on north korea you know that joins us on the south korean capital seoul kathy so yet more defiant language coming out of north korea today. yes we're hearing from the north korean foreign ministry who released a statement saying that the sanctions were a heinous provocation that serve to only prove to north korea that it is going down
7:14 am
the correct path and it is promising to redouble its efforts when it comes to missile testing and the nuclear testing that we've seen in the past south korea's unification ministry has responded to that commentary coming out of the foreign ministry sort of trying to play it down a little bit but saying that in the past the cycle has been that there's a provocation from north korea the international community condemns it responds with sanctions which is then interned responded to by north korea with another provocation and south korea is calling on north korea to step back from that cycle but it is acknowledging that that is not what has happened in the past so south korea's unification minister says it has to effect wait and see what happens interesting especially when given the comments that we're hearing from donald trump saying that these sanctions that were passed unanimously by the united nations security council were what he calls just a small step and nothing compared to what will ultimately have to happen yeah as
7:15 am
you say president from saying that the sanctions are only a small steps i mean are they likely to have any impact any effect on the ground coffee. well the sanctions are designed in one sense to punish north korea to send a message that the international community will not tolerate these sorts of provocations in the wake of the six than most powerful nuclear test that north korea has conducted but it also wants to enforce a change of behavior when it comes to north korea's policy the international community wants to put north korea into a position where it is forced back to the negotiating table but the issue here is that the sanctions did not go as far as the united states wanted them to what they will do is affect a lot of north korea's exports there had already been sanctions on coal and now this comes this includes sanctions on the exports of textiles and or follow on north korean workers but it doesn't go as far as the u.s. had hoped when it comes to the imports of oil of course crucial to north korea's
7:16 am
military and most of that is coming from china and china was just not willing to vote for a resolution that would completely cut off north korea from its oil supply fearing there that that might bring the north korean government to a position where it is unstable if that north korean government were to fall then china fears a flow of refugees into the country across the border and perhaps a unified korea on its border with u.s. troops in place then thank you now the prime minister of bangladesh has promised to help arrange a muslims who are scraping violence in me and shake a scene and visited one of the camps thousand refugees in a country more than three hundred seventy thousand people have fled from rakhine state in the past three weeks difficult part and has more now from cox's bazar in bangladesh. well humanitarian organizations here say the camps and the dark conditions are finally getting the attention it needs the bangladeshi prime minister was here yesterday assessed the situation and has promised aid but exactly
7:17 am
what kind of relief the governments will be sending or supplying is not clear as clematis also expected to arrive they will have a look for themselves at the conditions in these camps and then report back to their individual countries the u.n.h.c.r. chief of operations is also going to be looking at these camps later in the day the u.n. h.c.r. has already. brought in about ninety one of metric tons of food and supplies for the refugees there on their way to cox's bazaar and should be arriving any time during the day but vast those supplies are only for about one hundred twenty five thousand people far short of what is needed you have to remember that there were already refugees here before the latest influx so now around eight hundred thousand refugees are in need of food aid and any kind of relief now aid workers tell us they're still another hundred thousand people waiting to cross the border there is
7:18 am
also a concern about the fate of women and children coming in seventy percent of those coming in are women and children also a lot of concern about women and girls who've been assaulted as their villages have been attacked in especially after they made the arduous journey over here they are in need of medical not only medical help but also psychological help. the lower house of the philippine congress has approved an unusual budget of just twenty dollars for the national human rights commission it's twenty seventeen but it was only fifteen million dollars the right body has repeatedly criticized president. on drug. the philippine army continues to fight and i selling group which is the city of. mindanao. was imposed last may. and look at the economic impact of the conflict. doesn't allow he says these are the worst times he's been the wood carver all his life pieces like this one take at

7:21 am
they see their home a.b.c. from the bombs to continue to fall on morale but they remain worried the fighting there isn't only obliterate buildings it can also raise the identity of the people . sore southern philippines. iraqi government forces are preparing for what they hope is the final phase of their war against eisel the fighters are surrounded in the last remaining urban stronghold the town of how we judge well morale in the iraqi army is high following recent victories but some iraqis are worried i souls ideology will remain a threat long after it's defeated al jazeera as imran khan reports. this is the image the popular mobilization of forces in iraq want you to see. in control and ready to fight the shared militias are surrounding the last remaining eisel stronghold of whole region p m f command is a confident the next battle will be swift and decisive. we shall retake how we
7:22 am
judge just like we took mosul in tal afar we are now waiting for the orders to advance to who we are in the process of reinforcing our positions and fortifying our defense lines and i feel rats will be squashed soon by how. well confidence is high the military operation to recapture who ija is expected to be a complicated one there are two main front lines for the region here at west of the town and here at southwest. both battle fronts are linked by a series of watch towers and trenches. soldiers are clearing the surrounding desert by burning bush is to make it easier for them to move in their armored vehicles the battle won't just be fought by militias providing support will be the iraqi army counterterrorism forces and the federal police which the kurdish peshmerga will also be involved but given tensions in nearby could cook which the kurds claim the
7:23 am
government leaders in baghdad say is federal iraq a territory corp it will be complicated. there are mountain tension and sinker coke caused by the sectarian dimension that is making it boil and might lead to the deterioration of security situation leading to a standoff among the different forces. despite the potential takeover of the last remaining ice in stronghold in iraq the group's ideology will not be completely wiped out and it will remain a challenge. the problem is not with eisel alone it is by the oppression of the sunni communities even if i still is the fee to incur cooke's how we for example the oppression of the sunni community continues by the shia led government then we may see another wave of violence maybe worse than i saw the ideology of i still would still resonate among the people combating the group's ideology is a concern for many both here and abroad many iraqis say that the root causes for
7:24 am
the rise of a group like i still haven't been addressed and there's also the issue of what to do with the fighters and their family members after all they are some of them iraqi citizens now there's no concrete plan from the kurdish or the iraqi authorities for rehabilitation or even imprisonment leaving many to wonder if there is a concrete plan for post eisel iraq iraq on al-jazeera how to build syria's president bashar al assad has met the russian defense minister in damascus to discuss their military cooperation in a civil war they said their focus is on the city of dera zor which has been held by myself for more than three years they agreed to both the efforts against opposition fighters now aleppo used to be known as syria's economic hub before it became one of the most brutal battlegrounds in the civil war syrian and russian forces for the opposition groups will control leaving eastern under siege for three years nine months after the syrian government recapture the city it's allowed cameras in to see how some parts of being rebuilt ballots reports. fixing

twelve page memoir hillary clinton is candid about losing the presidency to donald trump i felt like i had let everybody down clinton blames herself for using a private e-mail account when she was secretary of state that led to a government investigation but she also questions former f.b.i. director james comey motivations for reopening the investigation less than two weeks before the election just stopped my momentum now remember this too jane at the same time he does that about a closed investigation there's an open investigation into the trump campaign and their connections with russia clinton's loss to donald trump was one of the most stunning in u.s. political history the veteran washington insider versus the brash outsider and although she won the popular vote she lost the electoral vote primarily because for large swing states and three traditional democratic states voted for trump clinton's critics say her failure to connect with working class voters is
7:29 am
a lesson for the democratic party one of the main. questions that democrats are asking themselves is how do we actually connect with with a huge part of the country that used to vote democratic and doesn't reliably do so anymore still some political scientists say clinton was a victim of bad timing so there is a reality that out of the six individuals who have run for a third term of their party only one of them has won so if she had really thought about the odds the odds are more like that she had about a seventeen percent chance of actually succeeding in president obama clinton's return to the spotlight is making some in her own party an easy they fear her book could further alienate progressive democrats who favored vermont senator bernie sanders for the party's nomination last year sanders seemed to agree in
