1:10 am
of threats posed by iran in terms of its adherence to the full spirit of that deal and that as long as for instance it continued to support bashar assad in syria will that make give rise to questions about its head here and to the spirit of the deal this is what boris johnson the u.k. foreign secretary had to say about that. the iranians have got to behave and fulfill their side of the bargain and they've got to stop being a venturesome expansionist and causing trouble in the region whether it's in yemen or syria or anywhere else and on north korea the talk was about boosting pressure on pyongyang following on from those un security council sanctions the eight set of sanctions imposed on the country the strongest sanctions ever imposed on any country according to boris johnson how to implement them importantly how to bring china in to encourage china to do more there was none of the fire and fury rhetoric

1:13 am
after a short flight from washington then put that deal in further doubt he insisted an agreement with democrats must include funding to build a border wall a key campaign pledge no timidly we have to have a wall if we don't have a war we're doing nothing hard right conservatives are furious accusing tromp of granting amnesty establishment republicans seem equally irritated reminding the president any deal he makes on legislation must involve a. publicans currently holding a majority in the us congress i think the president stands and he's going to work with the congressional majority to get any kind of legislation the president shifting positions and erratic approach to policy has only complicated matters it is heart of hearts trump may not know exactly what he is and he's sort of ideologically flexible and i think he just sort of goes for the saying that he thinks can basically get him the best headlines and the most credit that's why any

1:21 am
just over. an hour ago i called it up a few minutes ago now the scepter military saying a missile was fired at the site from the camp to pyongyang towards the east we don't know yet what type of missile this was we don't know how far it flew there are some reports on social media and in the japanese media that the missiles flew again over japan over her car. if that's confirmed then that would be of course the second missile test that has gone over japanese space and it's pretty controversial in the past anyway controversial but i would just kind of call it that much more provocative we were expecting north korea to test something either a missile as it seems to or another nuclear test in the launch of the un sanctions passed by the beginning of the week the north korean regime kim jong un made it clear that those sanctions would have no impact on his ambitions to develop nukes and so he was essentially promising more testing and we were expecting testing and
1:22 am
it looks as though that's exactly what's happened at the site we don't yet know the type of missile we don't know how far it flew we haven't had much analysis in that sense but it does say that this is yet more provocation from north korea albeit a provocation that we're going to hear was fully expected yeah just just hearing from your team there in seoul and three that south korea's presidential office says it's convening a national security council meeting for about forty five minutes time yeah that's right it's just going to seven in the morning local time here on friday they can be not meeting but i do clock local time and so zero zero g.m.t. we should know more the resolution of that meeting they normally come out to give some sort of statement in the hours are a meeting like that but obviously they only can be in those meetings when that something very serious and will be it is expected another test from north korea and we'll just have to see what the reaction is now from south korea from japan in the
1:23 am
course from donald trump and the u.s. administration he said all minutes late at the beginning of the week of the sanctions and he did not go far enough so far short of quote what will ultimately have to happen for the deficit that we don't know what that means have presumably is one single test they want this to judge his next days and his team there in a soul will be keeping an eye on that developing story out of north korea the missile being fired from north korea from pyongyang towards the east that morning in the coming hours. an inquiry has opened in london into why so many people died in an apartment block fire at least eighty people were killed when grenfell tower caught fire in june the inquiry will look into why the flames spread so quickly but also look at the actions of the authorities both before and after the fire. we are acutely aware not only so many people died or were injured in the fire. but the
1:24 am
many of those who survived have been severely effected by their experiences we also conscious that many have lost everything and even are dependent on others for many of their daily needs the inquiry cannot undo any of that but it can and will provide answers to the pressing questions of how our designs through this kind could occur in twenty first century london and thereby i hope provide a small measure of solace three women have filed a lawsuit against google accusing the company of discrimination against female employees if a post class action was filed at a san francisco court on thursday the former employees say that google pays women less than men who perform similar work and assigns to flooding affected the staffs
