10:02 am
split on how to deal with the growing tensions as president donald trump says all options are on the table as north korea continues to launch a nuclear test despite sanctions and condemnation i canna has this report from washington d.c. . the u.s.s. cole celebrates its seventieth anniversary and here to address the troops and their families president trump makes clear the air force may have a role to play in a christian undoing north korea crisis after seeing your capabilities and commitment here today i am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming. earlier speaking at the white house the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. emphasize that sanctions could still be an effective weapon if you look at the resolutions that have passed in the last month or two of them they cut thirty
10:03 am
percent of the oil they banned all the labors they banned ninety percent of the exports they banned joint ventures we've basically taken in the words of north korea we have strangled their economic situation at this point that's going to take a little bit of time but it has already started to take effect the national security adviser agreed but stressed diplomacy was not the only option these sanctions are just now taking effect what's really important is rigorous enforcement of those sanctions so that we can really let the economic actions and diplomacy progress as best we can but i think we ought to make clear what's different about this approach is is that we're out of time right is best for him he said before you know we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road and so for those who have said and it been if commenting about the lack of a military option there is a military option following yet another north korean missile launch despite several rounds of sanctions the u.s. is clearly exploring other options and while the north korean leader may watch

admiringly he could soon be facing u.s. action planned by the secretary of defense rather than the ambassador to the united nations mike hanna al jazeera washington china's ambassador to washington has called on the u.s. to refrain from making threats over north korea. told reporters on friday that he believes the u.s. should be doing more than now so that there is real effect of international cooperation on this issue and set of threats he said the u.s. must find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation. international tensions with north korea have a particularly profound impact on its neighbor to the south enter thomas has more on that from seoul as important as the statement released by the north korean regime saying that there was on twelve rockets was now operationally ready and that their final goal was to establish
10:05 am
a call librium of real force with the united states where the photographs that they released there is kim jong un smiling laughing celebrating with his top scientists as he personally oversees that rocket launch the idea is to present a picture of the light of confidence and of unity by the north korean regime and for that to contrast with the splits in the international community because clearly now there is a split the united states of course wanting tougher sanctions imposed by the united nations on monday they didn't get them they had to compromise they didn't get a total oil embargo and there are clearly people within the u.s. administration who don't even want to let these sanctions that work past take their course they want to consider other options military options and yet china is saying that their role is to do no more no less in their words than make sure that those u.n. resolutions are in force in other words they want sanctions to take their course and other countries do as well while the international community is splits north
10:06 am
korea in a sense is laughing this is what they want south korea is stuck somewhere in between they too wanted tougher sanctions passed on monday but what they really don't want is for the u.s. to take some kind of unilateral military action because that could provoke the north koreans to attack the south and that's the last thing they want so the international community stuck in a very difficult position. the british prime minister has raised the quays terror threat level from severe to critical after an explosive device partially detonated on a london underground train on friday theresa may says she took the decision after advice from security officials twenty nine people were injured in this incident which happened during morning rush hour it david joins us live right now where were all of this started to happen yesterday so and again what this this change in terror threat level what is it going to look like for people on the street. well rachele the terror threat level you were just referring to now raised to
10:07 am
critical which means that it's believed an attack. is expected imminently the highest level of five different levels the last time it was a critical was after the manchester arena bombing back in may what it means and the decision is arrived at through something called the joint terrorism analysis center together with intelligence officials and it basically allows for members of the military and we're hearing that around well the the the military personnel will be deployed to close sites sites that on an open to the public but strategic sites and freeing up the idea is around a thousand arms police officers now they will be patrolling places like london's transport network and that the streets around britain you can probably see behind me parson's green sheep station back open and running we've seen people leave the
10:08 am
station in the last hour or so people have been getting used to the sight of more armed officers since the string of attacks let's not forget it was the fifth attack since the start of the year in this country so people i don't think will be alarms to see more officers but it will be another reminder once they see once the threat level has an impact in terms of patrols it will be a reminder of the ongoing threat richelle i realize it's still very early on this only happened yesterday having said that has there been any information to come out from police on what they know or don't know about this investigation about what happened. they're being very cautious for good reason they have said they're making good progress we know that hundreds of officers are going through c.c.t.v. footage that will be from inside. the underground train itself but possibly from
10:09 am
the station possibly from buses in the area to see who entered the state this which station at what time and so on. there was a claim on friday that a boy i saw that they had carried out the attack but britain's anti terror police head mark riley says that that is par for the course they often do so even when an attacker has no direct link with them they're not actually giving away whether they believe more than one individual was involved. in that we have to be open minded about him and potential associates referring to. whoever planted the device in just a reminder that it was a fairly crude device which didn't fully detonate we understand there were wires coming out of a bucket photographed on that huge train of course it did injure a lot of people twenty nine people taken to hospital we understand eight have been released many of those did suffer burns there was
10:10 am
a large fireball as many eyewitnesses described it so very frightening but let's not forget it could have been much worse given the timing and given that it was destined the train to head into central london. and a life for us in london thank you hundreds of thousands of her hands and muslin refugees are struggling to access aid after crossing into bangladesh from myanmar existing camps have been overwhelmed by the number streaming over the border almost four hundred thousand row henge i have now fled a military crackdown that began more than three weeks ago as parasites reports from shop are deep in south east bengal question many refugees are living along roadsides without popular proper proper shelter rather or secure access to food and water. 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
10:11 am
bangladeshi boatman not easy when you've got no local currency. in the like you like with flame 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 and. if i was to take money from here or. say i'm a muslim i'm not exposing anyone the boat and say they're risking their lives to bring refugees across with little support. of the security forces here tell us that so kind for us to bring refugees in and what 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 the refugees coming into the country but looking around here we're seeing little to no sign of any official aid whether from the
10:12 am
government international aid agencies or local ones many of these people have been walking for days they finally crossed into the safety of bangladesh but they will have to keep on walking for another forty kilometers before they get any help local volunteers are trying to fill the gap. there i came from dhaka with a group of people to help out we're trying to get these people on the boats and tell them where they need to go and there is a man paid for the boat and this family can finally leave they join the almost half a million reindeer that's needed to have poured across the border in just the past four weeks marsar al-jazeera shop where the bangladesh. joins us live from near the bangladesh border you've been there for quite some time tanner what is the current situation on the ground now where the main challenge.
10:13 am
facing is distribution of relief there's no central location where they can actually distribute this really if they're going guys are in the shop or there was my supply was right there on their own put up along the need to be organized in one place the government has started a registration process biometric registration process so they can identify. those who have come here for aid the bomb of the shock or it is have now given authority to the bangladesh military to distribute foreign as well as local aid but the main concern is that just not enough adequate aid for the time being at least a lot of planes are coming with aid but they haven't been distributed yet another main concern is. medical facilities the bank. has one government hospital we don't need two hundred fifty bad and there's four hundred thousand refugees with one is two hundred thousand children now a lot of this among their own a lot of them need treatment i didn't treatment because that bullet wounds mine
10:14 am
