split on how to deal with the growing tensions s. president donald trump says all options are on the table as more korea continues to launch nuclear tests despite sanctions and condemnation mike hanna 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 on doing 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 percent of the oil they banned all the labors they banned ninety percent of the
12:03 pm
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 as investor hiley 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

12:05 pm
coming to see the military for many people here there is no clear a symbol of the strength of the alliance between japan and the united states especially given the current tension levels with north korea many people here believing that the way forward is to stick with data lines including of course the prime minister shinzo who has made a point of fostering a close relationship with donald trump often exchanging phone calls after each missile launch on nuclear test and of course with the possibility that the united states might be planning some sort of unilateral military intervention there is never been a more important time to keep channels of communication open between tokyo and washington but there is also some i described some concern amongst critics of shinto abhi that possibly japan is following too close an alliance with the united
12:06 pm
states given the inconsistency is in the u.s. policy at times claiming that the dialogue is always a possibility and that other times saying that there is no ball room for dialogue or told according to many people the sometimes mixed messages coming out of washington are simply raising the tension levels but a day off to the latest missile launch for many people here in japan there is nothing more reckless to launching a medium range missile over its. eritrean with the possibility of more missile launches to come. the british prime minister has raised the terror threat level from severe to critical after an explosive device partially detonated on a london underground train on friday theresa may says he took the decision after advice from security officials twenty nine people were injured in the incident which happened during morning rush hour. joins us live now from london so nadeem
12:07 pm
what was the status of the investigation obviously knowing that investigators won't say much at this point but what do we know. who are so right now there will be no arrests made in connection. the police are saying that they're making quote really good progress now on friday there was a claim of responsibility by the nation's top antiterrorism police officer mark riley says that he's very routine for eisel to make such a claim that they've done so in the past even when there's been no proven link direct link with an individual who's carried out an attack has said that the police are chasing down suspects so leading many people to. that the police believe there was more than one individual involved let's just remind our viewers that it was placed on. an underground train which was going from wimbledon in southwest london
12:08 pm
into the center of london so presumably designs to kill as many people as possible twenty nine people did suffer injuries most of them some of them have been released from hospital but of course it could have been a lot worse if the the whole of the device had actually detonated so at the moment police are going through there are hundreds of officers going through c.c.t.v. footage from the train itself and from elsewhere trying to see if there can identify who placed the device on board they're appealing to the public for him. which might be relevant as well at the time i was saying there have been no arrests but they are being cautious about what they say about how many people might have been involved in a dame the change in threat level which you know unfortunately the u.k. has become in some way you used to this but still remind us what that actually means and what that will look like on the street. sure will on
12:09 pm
friday night prime minister to reason may announce that the threat level to the u.k. had been raised from severe to critical critical being the top of the five different stages meaning the your thirty's believe an attack is imminent is expected imminently rather the fourth time that it's been about the highest level since. two thousand and six the last time we sort of critical were after the manchester arena bombing back in may it was at that level for a few days that's generally what happens because it is very intensive and it him is going to involve members of the military taking over from police infrastructure sites around the u.k. which are not open to the public meaning the armed police can then be deployed can be freed to patrol the streets and to be at places like this places like transport hubs and places where large numbers of the public congregate but it won't last for
12:10 pm
very long because it's so intensive in terms of manpower and resources so we know that behind the scenes as well there will be there will be an increased surveillance of potential suspects but on saturday morning a government minister was on the radio saying that he'd like to see internet companies do more to remove material from the internet which might inspire attacks or to teach a teaches people how to make improvised explosive devices so that's something that might be the focus of more attention in the longer term. alive and london again thank you. as president donald trump began tweeting about the london incident soon after it happened despite no details being released about suspects he suggested the attackers were known to u.k. police the tweets were described as unhelpful by british officials as for torii

12:12 pm
police described his comments as on helpful and tourism a was unimpressed i never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation as i've just said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and then to file those responsible critics say trumps willingness to speak out about this attack and others where muslims are suspected to be involved is it all it's with his response to incidents such as the white supremacist rally in charlottesville last month where a woman was killed in a car attack when there are acts of terrorism that's where the perpetrators get his worldview. is almost in a kneejerk. you know. reactor state but when it is not the people that he likes to condemn then he will be much more deliberate about his statements. it's
