who have said and been commenting about the lack of a military option there is a military option now it's not what we would prefer to do so what we have to do is call on all nations call on everyone to do everything we can to address this global problem short of war so that is implementing now these significant sanctions that have just now gone into place and it is convincing everyone to do everything that they can and that it's in their interest to do it. his comments come after pyongyang find yet another missile over japan the second in less than a month the united nations security council has now concluded an emergency meeting and has condemned the launch well we'll have the latest from seoul and the united nations in a moment but first craig with this report from tokyo the missile launch followed a familiar pattern it came early morning two minutes before seven local time with japan in its path launched from the capital pyongyang the missile through three
1:03 am
thousand seven hundred kilometers over the northern japanese island of hokkaido reaching a height of seven hundred seventy kilometers before crashing to the pacific ocean. just minutes after sirens sounded in her kind as a public alert was issued residents had mixed feelings. against the just doesn't feel real i really don't know what it will do it gives me the shivers i feel like telling them to stop it now the response from neighbors was swift south korea's national security council held an emergency meeting the country's new president ordered to counter fire with a missile test of its own the drill was pre-planned in preparation for another north korean test. not calling again fired a ballistic missile obviously disregarding international community's criticisms and warnings and the un security council resolutions such continuous provoking actions by not go to your serious threats the peace and stability the korean peninsula and
1:04 am
the international community that our government sternly denounces the next president of the messiah launce moon also instructed the nation to analyze and ramp up preparations for new forms of threats from electromagnetic pulse and chemical attacks. north korea has trampled on the international society's strong desire for a peaceful solution it's reckless act is absolutely unacceptable the u.s. secretary of state is calling on all nations to take new measures against north korea specifically he said china and russia must indicate their intolerance for these reckless launches by taking direct actions of their own this is the second ballistic missile to cross japan in less than a month it comes within twenty four hours of north korea threatening to sink japan with nuclear weapons a threat japan takes seriously now that it believes north korea has the ability to miniaturize its nuclear weapons and place them on top of ballistic missiles like the one which crossed the country today craig leeson al-jazeera tokyo well we can
1:05 am
go straight to cell where kathy novak is standing by for us and kathy it simmers i think in less less than an hour that the north korean president has made it clear just why he is carrying on with this test and. yes a couple of lines coming out of the north korean state news agency this morning saying north korea says the leader kim jong un guided the launching drill of the hawse on twelve rocket on friday the was on troll rocket is north korea's intermediate range missile the same kind of missile that flew over japan on august the twenty ninth and indeed the same kind of missile that north korea was using in its enveloping fire threats against one you'll recall that it made threats against saying that it was threatening to fire for twelve missiles over japan towards why so this is the kind of missile that it is saying it used in this latest launch
1:06 am
and casey and it goes on to say kim jong un says the final goal is to establish quote equilibrium of real force with the united states this is similar language that we saw in the past couple of days through the case in a state news agency with north korea talking about establishing an equilibrium with the united states we often hear that the reason partially that north korea wants to develop its missile and nuclear program is because it feels a real existential threat from the united states and it feels that it must develop its a nuclear weapons and its missiles in order to protect itself and in order to deter an attack from the united states or here we're hearing it say that it is continuing these missile launches to establish peace through an equilibrium with the united states for its part of south korea swiftly reacted to the launch with a launch of its own it fired a missile off the coast of korea that traveled for about two hundred fifty kilometers and that is about the distance it would need to travel to hit the
1:07 am
airport from which young young launched this latest missile so demonstrations from both sides of the peninsula here that each side says it has the capability to attack the other if necessary sue thank you kathy kathy know that with the perspective from both sides of the demarcations and well let's cross to. in new york and also in jordan he joins us now live from the united nations and all not point was the the the north korean president basically saying this is all about him wanting us all to see to the top nuclear and to be seen as an equal to the u.s. what kind of response would you think that would be getting across and the security council and indeed the white house will very quickly sue in the united states not to would not go over well at all in fact such a proto stations from kim jong il's father kim jong il were met with laughter or derisive laughter i should note that you simply can't tell
1:08 am
a bully your way into the so-called nuclear club as for the security council there's a real concern that the government would not be responsible as a nuclear weapons holder and so there is a concerted purpose to try to stop north korea from further developing its nuclear weapons program of course the method has been increasing sanctions we've seen two sets of sanctions imposed in the past five weeks or so but is that enough given that there has been this latest missile launch in the last twenty four hours the ceiling events here is the russian ambassador to the u.n. we were discussing for a while that was it in a vicious circle where. it is a mission a provocation at all occasion that is addition that another publication and we were going to play to you as many people raised an issue that we have to think maybe out
1:09 am
of the books both china russia talking about still carrying on with meaningful negotiations coming out of that meeting but we're hearing a different kind of mood coming out of the white house with the national security adviser saying we are pretty much running out of time on the diplomatic efforts. and not just h.r. mcmaster the national security adviser making that comment but the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley once again raising the specter of a possible military response but in her words that she would leave that up to the defense secretary jim mattis well that's the kind of language that has a large china has alarmed russia and we heard vassily tell reporters late on friday that you have to focus on discussions that this sort of language about using some sort of military option to try to stop north korea is aggressive is not helpful
1:10 am
and they are suggesting that people really need to seriously consider perhaps direct talks with north korea people meaning the united states and south korea in an order to our recognize that this is not a one sided debate even though to be clear neither russia nor china want to see a nuclear armed north korea good to get your thoughts ross perot's that and told him that giving us the latest from the united nations. the british prime minister has. to critical after an explosive device detonated on the london underground train. took the decision on advice from security officials twenty nine people were injured in the incident before. it happened on london's underground. eight twenty in the morning the height of the
1:11 am
rush hour if this was a deliberate attack and that's what the police believe it was time to cause maximum casualties. this is what we believe caused the explosion just as the train came into passenger screening station in a pocket still in flames moments later when a passenger on the train filmed it on camera but the damage to the surrounding carriage is slight perhaps someone intended this to be a much more serious attack injured and frightened people fled the station. there was panic several people rushed to hospital almost immediately. people shell shocked and when i asked what happened they talked about an explosion in one of the carriages. yeah that that ripped through one of the carriages we had a bag. just came. and it was so hot and it just the whole. just coming everybody screaming. but we just we were right at
1:12 am
the end just we just jumped the fences and just ran. this is a leafy residential part of west london a long way from the city center so people who live around here are surprised and alarmed that something like this has happened and the police have sealed off a large area around parsons green tube station. an awful lot of disruption to people's lives and we are treating the matter as a terrorist related incident and the metropolitan police counterterrorism c'mon will take responsibility for that investigation the prime minister held an emergency security beating the joint terrorism analysis center has now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical this means that their assessment is that a further attack may be imminent for this period military personnel will replace
1:13 am
police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites which are not accessible to the public public will see more armed police on the transport network and on our streets providing extra protection recent attacks in london and in manchester have put the british authorities on heightened alert on the world the choo train attacks back in two thousand and five the so-called seven seven attacks in which more than fifty people died but the advice from politicians and the police is for people to go about their daily lives and across this bar city today that's what most londoners are doing to be phillips al jazeera pass in the street in london. from the same. the cordon around parsons green station has now been relaxed there is still though a large police presence here that's likely to continue throughout the night on the platform itself there remains a forensic tent the site of
1:14 am
a tremendous amount of activity for the specialists over the course of the day they've been pouring over a large amount of potential forensic evidence on the platform on the train and also focusing on the improvised explosive device they've also been looking at thousands of hours of c.c.t.v. footage closing the net on the possible suspect or suspects further afield the british prime minister to reason may has decided to increase the national threat level from severe to critical the implication of that is this an attack is viewed as being imminent rather than simply likely she's also put into force operation temperance meaning that there will be thousands of armed police and military personnel on the streets of the british capital and other towns and cities across the country some of those armed officers will be behind the scenes protecting key installations like nuclear plants electrical power stations and also military bases to. still to come round of talks on syria some progress.

mia more security forces. we're kind state it's on fire we document a least a to large scale burnings across the whole state. it's very very difficult to conclude there's anything else a deliberate effort by the mayor military to drive or hinge of their own country. by any means necessary of thousands more hendra muslim refugees continue to enter bangladesh every day they're fleeing ma'am from what the u.n. has called a textbook definition of ethnic cleansing but says maha subtle reports from shop trip in south east bangladesh four weeks into the crisis authorities are still not prepared for the influx. waiting for the boats to come but for these rohingya refugees from myanmar there's still the not so small matter of haggling with the bangladeshi boatman not easy when you've got no local currency
1:20 am
. because they're torturing and killing us on the other side we have to pay whatever the price of the protest no matter how high. some boatmen have been accused of charging exorbitant fees it's a touchy subject. if i was to take money from it would be a great sin i mean listen i'm not excusing anyone. the boatman say they're risking their lives to bring refugees across with little support. of the no security forces here tell us that it's ok for us to bring refugees in but we should do it discreetly if we do it openly i think it was trouble. this confusion is symptomatic of a dysfunctional relief effort this road on the very southeast tip of bangladesh is right now the main entry point for refugees coming into the country but looking around here we're seeing little to no sign of any official aid whether from the government international aid agencies or local ones. many of these people have been

cassini spacecraft has plunged into saturn after a twenty year journey the agency calls the grand finale it disintegrated in saturn's atmosphere and a plan descent she had polls we have. and just like that it was gone. the end of the mission. if you're that. tumbled into saturn that was no longer able to point its antenna towards earth to send back images in fact at this point cassini was already long gone its fatal plunge would be gone about an hour and a half earlier but such was the distance its final messages were only just reaching mission control and those in mission control knew cassini survived a minute maybe two after its last message before disintegrating eight. sr was launched in october of one thousand nine hundred seven and began orbiting saturn in june of two thousand and four it's a original four year mission was repeatedly extended although much of its on board
1:29 am
equipment was already antiquated by the time it arrived at its destination the data transmitted was invaluable to astronomers investigating the origins of saturn its rings and moons it was on those moons some of cassini's greatest discoveries were made finding a vast ocean of water on and sell of us and to me thing see on titan both moons showing evidence of prebiotic chemical combinations that could support life that was one reason why nasa decided to destroy its beloved spacecraft to prevent it crashing into those moons for fear it could contaminate them with microbes from earth dr amy simon says because these findings also help us understand our own planet has that dance atmosphere it's very primordial it might be like a really early earth before we had oxygen and so these are the sorts of things we'd like to do because we can't study that here on earth we can't go back in time nasa says it knows exactly where cassini ended its mission this is an image put together biracial in for. mapping spectrometer team they did
