9:02 pm
so than the u.s. president donald trump has branded north korean leader kim jong madmen who doesn't mind starving or killing his people and the latest escalation in the war of words in its response to kim's official statement calling trump deranged gangster playing with fire and a barking dog the north is also threatening to test a hydrogen bomb in the pacific ocean i think because more now from the south korean capital of seoul. inflammatory threats from north korea are not unusual but it is rare for the leader kim jong un to issue a statement himself. it was read out on state television along with a photo of the leader responding to donald trump's speech to the u.n. in which he threatened to totally destroy the democratic people's republic of korea or d p r k kim called the us president's behavior mentally deranged and said now that trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of
9:03 pm
the eyes of the world and made the most ferocious declaration of war in history that he would destroy the d.p. r. k. we will consider with seriousness exercising of a karst funding highest level of hardline countermeasure in history as to what that countermeasure might be his foreign minister in new york had this suggestion you do i think it could be a hydrogen bomb test on the ground of an unprecedented scale in the pacific ocean. there hasn't been an underwater or atmospheric nuclear test in decades they are banned under several treaties considered just too dangerous for people and the environment there was immediate condemnation from the two countries in the region likely to be most at risk from a north korean attack to pen and south korea. north korea's remarks and behavior provocative to regional and international security and they absolutely unacceptable
9:04 pm
. north korea should immediately stop its direct least provoke ations that will lead itself to isolation and collapse. but kim jong un says trump's remarks convinced him that he chose the correct path and must continue to follow it. south korea's president moon j.n. used his speech to the u.n. to repeat that his country does not desire the collapse of north korea and to insist that there will not be war again on the korean peninsula he says the situation must be stable the managed so that tensions will not become overly intensified and so that accidental military clashes do not destroy peace kathy novak al jazeera. well the united nations russia's foreign minister has been speaking and he said that everybody involved in the north korea dispute needs to take a deep breath but at the mall now the students we need to come down the hot heads and understand that we need pauses we need some contacts if people want to act as
9:05 pm
mediators i would actively welcome that but mediators could be one of the neutral european countries but was talked about by general secretary could have as well as great now to our u.n. correspondent rose jordan who joins us live from u.n. headquarters in new york wrote a column the head says level of how will that will that go down. well the foreign minister also said that everyone is behaving like. students or five year old so i'm sure that's going to go over well with a lot of people involved in this very hot debate over iran north korea's nuclear weapons program. told reporters here at the u.n. in the past hour is that not just that cooler heads should prevail but that there needs to be a we doubled efforts to actually negotiate a way to end this crisis he said that both moscow and beijing believe that north korea does have some valid national security concerns and that it really should be
9:06 pm
up to the united states and its allies to take those concerns seriously he said because of that that requires dialogue not this name calling and back and forth that we've been seeing between the u.s. president donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong il and in the past seventy two hours now of course is this all going to make a difference given now that north korea may be planning to test a hydrogen bomb somewhere in the pacific ocean certainly that is a real concern but the message from sergei lavrov is that it needs to be a matter for dialogue and to avoid provocative talk any talk of potential military action from both sides. or thanks very much dave rose jordan reporting there from the united nations now iran's president says his country will strengthen its missile capabilities and does not need to seek permission to do so president hassan rouhani made the comments while addressing the armed forces parade in terror on but
9:07 pm
he also promised to continue building the national military forces this is tons new news agency reported that iran has unveiled a new ballistic missile with a range of two thousand kilometers capable of carrying several warheads. now britain's prime minister has given a major speech in florence in italy aimed at rescuing the floundering bricks it talks to resume a proposed a two year transition period after the u.k. leaves the european union during which she wants britain to stay in the e.u. single market and she promised that britain will all know its budget commitments into the shed your departure date of march two thousand and nineteen she also promised to guarantee the rights of e.u. citizens post breaks it in law but on trade may warn that remaining a member of the european economic area would not suit britain and neither would have canadian style trade deal said she called for a bold new strategic agreement speak now tony parker who's live for us in
9:08 pm
florence so naive about all this are we any further forward when it was billed as a vital and important moments in really explaining to the international community to the european union and also british citizens exactly what the countries breaks it blueprint is going forward but for to reason may was something more of a brics it wish list see talks at length about the need for creative new partnerships between the e.u. and the u.k. going forward when it comes to a new relationship on an economic level on a on a political defense and security level as well but it has left some accusing to reason may of being a little bit vague the real pressure now is on the british government to perhaps tighten up their plans going forward before the next round of negotiations begin on monday but she did as you said set out plans for what might happen immediately after breaks it in march two thousand and nineteen she talks of
9:09 pm
a two year transition process that would be good news for business it would give a degree of certainty for those worrying about exactly what's going to happen next he is want to resume a set a bit earlier on. i'm proposing that there should be such a period after the u.k. leaves the e.u. clearly people businesses and public services should only have to plan for one set of changes in the relationship between the u.k. and the e.u. so during the implementation period access to one another's markets should continue on current terms and britain should also continue to take part in existing security measures as of today these considerations point to an implementation period of around two years and move domestically what were the prime ministers priorities here in terms of keeping our people happy keeping the cabinet united. when she had really
9:10 pm
a variety of different pressures and impulses that were probably the forefront of her mind going into this key speech on the one hand there are those who aren't worried about what a heart breaks a cliff edge a bridge that might look like so the suggestion now that they will be this two year transition period is likely to received well from them it soften the blow a little bit now it's more of a slope than a cliff edge over the others though some of the more hard line breaks it is within her own ranks the likes of voice johnson britain's foreign minister that of course now key reassurances that breaks it will happen so will the one hand she has to balance different views and opinions about the next steps going forward she also has to take into consideration that she's under a tremendous amount of pressure from brussels as well as i said the next round of negotiations begins on monday the e.u. absolutely adamant that they want to see concrete proposals on the table rather than these got a vague outlines or wish list of possible proposals going forward unless for
9:11 pm
instance the e.u. has a clear idea about the border between northern islands of the republic of ireland has an idea about what's going to happen to three million e.u. nationals living in the u.k. and crucially how much the u.k. will pay to leave breck's it that it may be that negotiations continue to stall going forward. all right dave thanks very much lou that's a picture in florence leave barca reporting there let's take this on let's get more reaction from john spring for it is a director of research at the center for european reform john we've heard a wide and varied response to trees of speech would you make it well i thought it was a. speech which was constructive in tone which is good the twenty seven will like that i think there also like the idea that the u.k. will make an ion clients commitment to european security that will go down well but in terms of real specifics you know we're in twelve months into a negotiation where there's a lot of nitty gritty that needs to be sorted out and there wasn't
9:12 pm
a great deal of that and there were some very commitments on the money and on systems rights not really very much in northern ireland and then some very vague statements about the future trading relationship and what about this need to create more of a sense of trust so that talks are actually make progress and. i think that's very important but the problem is that trust has got to such a low ebb between the two sides now that you know while tone is helpful and the fact that she struck such a constructive tone is really good and i think that the fact that there weren't really clear specifics mean that the speech itself is not clearly not going to be enough to be able to move on to the next stage of the talks that's going to have to come in the negotiations and what about this concept of the two year transition in fact the u.k. would still be very close to the european union in twenty twenty one how would that go down with with the hardliners. it seems as though the cabin at least so
9:13 pm
hardliners in the cabinet have got behind this you know they've seen this speech they signed off it would be difficult for them to resign over a speech which they have signed off the party the muted the reaction has been pretty muted so far. and i think probably what has happened is that a lot of hardliners have realized that it's really in order to make it work a transition has to happen and so they're willing to accept it as long as it's time limited in short so she moves forward with the negotiations where will that backing his sister now. i think it will i think that there are some big hurdles that she has to overcome and the biggest one obviously is the money she made some vague promises to on the u.k. these commitments that it made is need you member. the e.u. is demanding you know i think which is around one hundred billion euros gross and
9:14 pm
that will come down a bit after some payments are made back to the u.k. over time. but that's a very big figure there and it will be very difficult for her to be able to deliver that so the only way i think she can get through this is by agreeing a method with the e.u. which is relatively secure enough for the e.u. to accept it but isn't naming her down to a specific figure which will cause her a lot of trouble with her hardliners absolutely interesting stuff right john thanks very much and he joins but for things which now british police service charge a man with attempted murder after last week's bombing of a london underground train which left thirty people injured eighteen year old ahmed hassan was also charged with using explosives it's like an parsons green in west london is the fifth attack in the u.k. in just six months earlier two other men who'd been arrested in connection with the attack were released without charge for other suspects are still in custody. the former general guide of the muslim brotherhood muhammad. has died he was arrested
9:15 pm
a day after former egyptian president mohammed morsi was ousted from power in two thousand and thirteen iran can take a look back at his life mohamed but the archive was born in the same year the muslim brotherhood was founded in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight in his early teens the man who had become one of the symbols of the organization became aware of its teachings and became a passionate advocate of its ideas. the muslim brotherhood rejected british occupation of egypt and western government style of liberal democratic society in favor of a model that placed islam at the heart of political life. by the one nine hundred fifty s. oppression by successive egyptian rulers led many of the brotherhood members to flee abroad while others like our camp were jailed and then e. has been researching and studying the organization for many years he has many achievements one of them that he is what he was the the most the foremost needers
9:16 pm
and about to hold over the last i would say couple of decades since he took office for he initiated many changes within the movement he gave a new flavor of the movement in the one nine hundred eighty s. the group disavowed violence and attempted to join the mainstream political process but it was banned by the regime of former egyptian president hosni mubarak then it became clear that the only real opposition in egypt was the muslim brotherhood and for a large part of hosni mubarak's forty year old was his rival encouraging younger members to become more involved in two thousand and five and archives leadership the brotherhood won twenty percent of the seats in egypt's parliamentary elections running as independents mubarak cracked down on the group again jailing hundreds of members then came the arab spring in two thousand and eleven and the form of mubarak in the elections that followed the brothers newly formed freedom and justice party won nearly half the seats in the people's assembly but its success
9:17 pm
was short lived. after a series of controlled the seas involving constitutional reform the army was deployed on the streets and suspended the constitution the freedom and justice party was outlawed members of the brotherhood once again on the run in jail or killed and found himself behind bars now the brotherhood finds itself at a crossroads one of the most. significant problems that the ever faced over the last i would say sixty kids the moment i was fighting on. different levels one of these levels is surviving the movement is facing. extraordinary oppression of g.m. and the fight to survive and many of them now want to present. more than according to some records to more than forty thousand members i would present the muslim brotherhood will view archives death as state aided murder claiming he was never given the medical treatment he needed his legacy will be the man who came to embody the politics of the movement in spirit and in life imran khan is
9:18 pm
a. all right coming up this news. moves on to the. independents get louder the spanish government says more people will be deployed and of a planned referendum. ignites rid of. americans . in mexico say they are still confident of finding more survivors from choose days earthquake as the search goes on into a fourth day sixty people have now been pulled out of the rubble but the death toll is approaching three hundred and is expected to rise as the search continues the seven point one magnitude quake hit a large area of central clearing the densely packed capital city it's left
9:19 pm
thousands of people homeless let's go live now to alan fischer who's standing by for us there in mexico city and tell us what you've been seeing. but this is a can definitely valerius very close to the heart of mexico city center where you can see behind me is a building that collapsed and. were almost exactly as it hit that you can see that the building has collapsed forward and that is given the people who are making their way through that the hope that they can still find people in the wreckage. what has happened is that we're following for what they think there are pockets that have been created. twenty people online from that building recovered a number of dead is well we do know what they're not sharing that information but just in the last couple of hours with a specialist rescue teams from the united states and japan movement the mexicans
9:20 pm
have done what they could to this. and these days it sure does and put in foundations in a lot of the building so that the new rescue teams can get in but what the americans and the japanese brain is not only an expertise of dealing with more often than the mexican do but also high tech equipment that the mexican simply don't have the jump from central imaging and they realize that there are people trapped in the building the exact figure we're not entirely sure everything had to be stopped overnight because with a really heavy rainstorms here thursday into friday that changes the whole perspective because when it rains as heavy as it did it moves things around therefore they had to wait a few hours this morning to get a lie is a lie and get engineers in to take a look and then make sure that they could start going on to the day every once again make sure the kids get to the people who they think are still trapped certainly the people around here are hopeful that they will recover a number of people alive from the wreckage the incredible thing is with so many people around here how quiet it is it's almost like they're giving the rescue
9:21 pm
workers time space and silence to do their job properly it's always a terrible moment isn't it when it when a rescue becomes a recovery operation but it seems we're not there yet but i imagine it will be an incredibly difficult and painstaking process and yet the the clock is ticking isn't it. exactly right after seventy two hours it becomes. much more difficult to recover people alive from that rubble that we see behind us there are forty families around here waiting for news of loved ones that are in that building or do you think are in that building and it becomes difficult to with the weather it's a rainy season here makes cool in the day is quite mild it's quite pleasant the sun is out but around six seven eight o'clock at night we start to get really heavy rain storms and if you're trapped in the building and the rain is coming down and you get wet and it gets called and it does the temperature drops by about ten
9:22 pm
degrees then you're at risk to fix. all sorts of other things of course if you've lost blood if you're trapped it becomes much more difficult now people remember a few years ago when there's a big quake in mexico a young boy who was rescued after nine days and that was healed by many people in mexico was a miracle but it was an exceptionally unusual event normally after seven hours it is a recovery mission rather than a rescue mission but no one is given up hope that they will pull people from that building alive not least because they now have the specialist equipment and the teams from japan and from the united states and the israelis are also coming here as well with their technology so this is going to be a really high tech search for these people that they hope trapped in the building because there's a see the building looked as if when it collapsed it collapsed forward so that means there could be pockets in that building where there are people just waiting to be rescued hearing the rescuers getting closer to them every hour. want to give any hope that things go well that. reporting from mexico city. currently

9:24 pm
hurricanes before but says maria it was terrifying he took shelter with his family but his home was wrecked and rebuilding isn't something many here can afford when might he be. i don't know where the more the world says they go and he won't give us a little help whatever so they give us some help will rebuild we've got a baby we go we're going all the place to go in last been eunice on puerto rico's coast many have lost everything local resident peterson dollars is one of a few volunteers offering comfort water and transport to safer locations you know i didn't lose anything with just you know water you know got i got one in my house and stuff like that and i my friends got a military truck and came in paid me up when i would just start here you know how about no life has been left untouched by hurricane maria the sheer scale of the damage is almost too much to process and this community is normally a short drive from san juan but right now it feels completely cut off and here's something else to bear in mind there is no power across the entire island no mobile
9:25 pm
phone coverage so people can't talk to each other and government help or residents here are being told they simply going to have to wait it's a wait that worries many desperately in need of help they said that we're not going to see police or government when anything like for three days until they communicate with their families and do everything so that then they proceed to move everything so everything goes back to. puerto rico remains in a state of crisis. almost no is that recovery will be painstakingly slow and to get across is there a lost been eunice puerto rico. iraq's candidates need to masoud barzani says monday's independence referendum will definitely go ahead despite international pressure for it to be delayed or even canceled by zani was speaking iraq's kurdish capital of bill at the final rally before monday's vote which has been criticized by the united states the european union league and many others he says the kids are happy to fight ice alongside iraqi forces whatever the referendum results. a

judge has ordered the release of six people who were arrested on wednesday in a crackdown by spain on preparations for an independence referendum they include catalans jr the economy minister more protests being held in barcelona calling for an end to the government's position the referendum which is considered illegal by the spanish government is a vote on whether cutting libya should gain independence from spain let's go live now to john hundred news for us in boston and john what's been happening with these protests. nic this remains the biggest constitutional crisis in spain in the past forty years since the death of two of the dictator francisco franco we began the day with people protesters camped outside of the courthouse here the high court here demanding the release of those six local government officials here being held on various charges for pursuing the referendum so there were there were protests
9:27 pm
there there were student protests at the university here and there was to be a protest right here behind me tonight but that was canceled because those six government officials were released they are still being investigated on charges of embezzlement. disobedience and abuse of power so while the protesters in the local government stepped up their side of his debate today so did the spanish government saying it would send three to four thousand national police and civil defense troops they were to be housed on four cruise ships just off the coast of catalonia while those ships are here but the local dock workers have boycotted serving them so there is no way for those troops to get from those ships here so this is a standoff that remains at this point but right now it is a celebration here in the streets of barcelona because those officials were released all right a celebration i understand what happens next what's that what's happens now.
9:28 pm
i'm sorry if you asked me a question nick i did not hear john i'm sorry if you didn't hear that way what i'm saying is what happens next. right well the prosecutor here the spanish prosecutor now wants to pursue sedition charges against the leaders of the demonstrations here that's a very serious charge carries a fifteen year prison sentence and it usually involves fomenting an uprising against the government it's very rarely charged here or anywhere so there is the possibility that the prime minister here would come up with some kind of compromise to end this crisis either promising some kind of talks between the spanish government the locals that might lead to a referendum in the future or some kind of increased autonomy in the short term we do know that the prime minister of catalonia i'm sorry the vice president of catalonia has said that it looks like that referendum on october first is in
9:29 pm
jeopardy not least because the spanish government is confiscated the ten million ballots in this case but as it stands protesters insist they are going to be out here in the streets every day until october first and then nobody quite knows what will happen in our john thanks very much and they join hundred there in buffalo. still to come this hour as mimosa or his face persecution reckons that we were revealed how misinformation is spreading anti muslim sentiment in other parts of the country. germany's chancellor angela merkel had a victory in sunday's election when look at how she's managed to keep on top of the polls. making all the right moves we need to win a standoff as i said in the big dream.
