just like. i need. to feel that some people just get out just what i did i dish it. and monday put it well on. u.s. and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to form a dry riverbed like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their countries have been truly unable to escape the war. china limits fuel exports to north korea increasing the pressure on kim jong un.
8:01 am
a lot of has i'm sick of this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up leaders at the u.n. can damn me en masse treatment of range of muslims but on the me and my bangladesh border the crisis shows no sign of slowing. death toll from mexico's earthquake approaches three hundred such as they say they will not give up hope for possible survivors. and we're in barcelona where pro and anti independence protesters take their causes to the streets. china has confirmed it is imposing limits on oil exports to north korea that's after new sanctions by the un last week that included fuel import restrictions it is also banning imports of textiles want to pyongyang's last major sources of

foreign revenue textile bang goes into effect on saturday china is north korea's biggest trading partner and the country relies on it for much of its imports on friday u.s. president donald trump praised china for keeping up its pressure. i made a friend in china president xi and yesterday he basically took the banking industry away from north korea never been done you will never know. it's based on relationship relationship is very good but we're dealing with somebody that will figure out he may be smart he may be strategic and he may be totally crazy but you know what no matter what he is we're going to handle it folks believe me. adrian brown is live for us in beijing so a.j. we heard the u.s. president there talking about the banking industry but hasn't china deny that they
8:03 am
put banking sanctions on north korea. yeah there is confusion once more here in beijing because on friday as you rightly point out the foreign ministry spokesperson here in beijing said that donald trump's version is not conforming to china's understanding of what has been agreed so it didn't really specifically reject or deny what donald trump had said but china hasn't actually spelt out or confirmed actually that it's going along with these new banking sanctions against north korea we've had no official statement from the bank of china remember president donald trump on thursday said that the bank of china had told its banks to no longer deal with north korea so it is far from clear at the moment and it's saturday here in beijing where the beijing is necessarily going along with what donald trump has outlined to that audience i think it's fair to
8:04 am
assume though that the united states does believe that china has not been cracking down hard enough on trading companies and financial institutions that it says are continuing to deal with north korea so i think it's sort of firing a bit of a warning shot across china's bows now in recent months the united states treasury department has actually taken action against a medium sized chinese bank the bank of dun dun which has about one hundred branches in northeast china that bankers now affectively been excluded from the u.s. financial system and i think the real worry for leaders here in china is that president front might well penalize one of china's big banks remember four of the world's biggest banks are here in china and that would cause a huge huge loss of prestige to the leadership here in beijing if that were to happen so i think china probably will go along with you know tougher sanctions against you know companies that trade with north korea but only because it wants to
8:05 am
avoid one of its big name banks being targeted and one of these oil and text our sanctions how effective are these likely to be. well i think it's too early to say because of course it's going to take months for the impact of these sanctions to be felt but certainly banning imports of north korean textiles will hurt the regime because textiles preside provides what the regime really needs most right now which is hard currency also limiting oil exports not cutting off the oil completely bare in mind but limiting that oil exports will also potentially hurts north korean people because you know every military needs oil to to you know operate and the worries say analysts is that simply north korea will now divert those oil supplies as limited all supplies to the military so that will impact on ordinary north korean people the ex the that the banning of you know
8:06 am
the export of refined petroleum products is going to take effect from today likewise the banning of exports of liquefied natural gas and condensate is also starting to do so what china has effectively done is basically confirm a timeline for implementing these sanctions because the bulk of the north's trade is with china of course the onus on forcing these sanctions falls once more on china's shoulders adrian brown live in beijing. now according to amnesty international ranger muslim villages are still being burned in myanmar the group says new satellite images and videos show smoke rising from ranger villages and this contradicts claim inspire me and my as leader aung sang suu kyi the military operations there have ended around four hundred thirty thousand refugees

have been dealt a major blow by senator john mccain he declared his opposition on friday to the republican party's latest proposal to replace health care legislation approved by president obama mccain says the bill is being rushed and he is demanding more details on what it would cost and how it would affect insurance premiums or bush is a political analyst and public policy professor at george mason university he says the republicans have failed to fulfill their campaign promise on obamacare because of internal fighting. the bill passed in two thousand and ten without one single republican vote in support of that bill in either the house or the senate that's very rare in the united states major pieces of legislation throughout american history have had at least some bipartisan support this was a wholly democratic bill which made boehner will from the beginning and republicans have never stopped trying to kill it now they also are idiotically opposed to it because they believe it has too much government they don't like the idea the
8:29 am
government will have to adopt much say over the health care system but basically it's partisan revenge pure and simple there are many democrats who say the that obamacare needs fixing it need some improvements there are flaws in it and i think congress may try to pass some some measures that would make obamacare better that would make it were a workable some parts of it are simply not workable and even president former president obama doesn't claim that the bill is perfect he claims it should be improved but at this point the spirit of partisanship the tribal warfare in the united states is so intense that the party simply cannot work together and really anything and. this is a real departure for most of american history while some of the most iconic dresses in cinema history worn by actress audrey have been are going on sale at an auction in london the collections being offered by his son's nearly twenty five years death some of the hollywood stars clothes jewelry and photographs from movies my fair
