now reaching their destination if we don't hurry will never be able to get the top of the story we follow the mongolian herdsmen on a treacherous migration. dangerous the ice is a thing as they strive to preserve their traditional way of life with your sometimes loser cattle there with the cold war because of the storm risking it all mongolia at this time on al-jazeera. the war of words continues donald trump takes another gig at kim jong un a day after north korea threatened to target the u.s. mainland. a lot has of sake of this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. i'm going to hole in southeastern bangladesh where refugees continue to arrive hourly from me
and just across the water. doesn't still missing in mexico rescuers looking for survivors after tuesday's earthquake. and germany heads to the polls on sunday to elect a new government angle merkel's party widely expected to win the vote. and other back and forth between the u.s. and north korean leaders has taken another turn in the past few minutes the u.s. president tweeted a response to the north korean foreign minister speech at the united nations donald trump again refer to north korea's leader kim jong un as the little rocket man and warned if the angry rhetoric continues he and his foreign minister quote won't be around much longer a trans tweet came after north korea's foreign minister told the general assembly the insults towards kim jong un make a north korean rocket launch towards the u.s.
mainland in his words inevitable diplomatic editor james bays reports from the united nations the democratic people's republic of korea this was the podium where four days earlier president trump threatened to totally destroy north korea now it was time for the country's top diplomat to give his blistering reply. due to his lack of basic common knowledge and proper sentiment he tried to insult the supreme dignity of my country by referring to it as a rocket by doing so however he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets visit to the entire us mainland inevitable all the more none other than trump himself is on a suicide mission this clearly rankled the north koreans rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself the foreign minister kamal quipped with nicknames of his own. you will. only learn the person who is just even by
american says commander in grief lion king president evil is holding the seat of the us presidency and the dangerous reality that the gambler who grew old using threats frauds and all other schemes to acquire a patch of land holds the nuclear button these are what constitute the greatest threat to international peace and security today. north korea has proved once again it won't back down in five days of diplomacy in new york this crisis has got worse not better diplomats feel the situation is dangerous the insults being hurled may sound like schoolyard language but the u.s. has carried out a show of force with jets and bombers flying close to north korea's eastern coast and there's talk of north korea carrying out an atmospheric nuclear test that's a dangerous proposition which will be conducted in the pacific ocean unlike the
previous six nuclear tests which were contained on the ground the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists who had a rare meeting with the north korean foreign minister after his speech has warned there's now a real risk of miscalculation leading to conflict james phase out of the united nations a cafe novak is following the story from the south korean capital so. insults against the north korean leader kim jong un are taken very seriously by the government there if people within north korea were to dare to insult kim jong un that would be an offense punishable by death so what we have seen in response to the u.s. president donald trump's remarks at the united nations is a strong reply from kim jong un himself and now from the north korean foreign minister alert hurling insults back in the direction of donald trump and not only insult but threats as well saying us again. a strike against the u.s. is now inevitable now the north korean foreign minister also said as part of his
speech that north korea is nearing the final stage of completing its nuclear force he had suggested that one of the options north korea might take would be to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the pacific so now that we have had the ramping up of rhetoric the concern is what happens next the united states has launched a show of force flying bombers off the east coast of north korea we are expecting the unveiling of strategic weapons here in south korea as this country marks its armed forces day and the south korean government has been warning for weeks that it does expect another missile launch or perhaps another nuclear test from north korea particularly around important dates there there's one of those coming up next month when north korea marks the anniversary of the founding of its work as workers party on october the tenth.
or the head of the un's refugee agency has been meeting in bangladeshi camps they told filippo grandia about the alleged murder rape and violence happening in the animal's right hind state our correspondent john howard has been hearing similar accounts from people in tech now in southeastern bangladesh. the new arrivals well over four hundred muslim or hindu have fled ethnic cleansing in me and in just the past month and that number is rising daily. like i don't have any expectations of bangladesh i just came here to save my life. and i've seen a beggar mix planes through her tears that her husband and brother were killed when the military laid waste to her village. this is one of several entry points into bangladesh a busy water taxi route from sharply island to the mainland many rangers have
crossed the nafs river from me in march two sharp and into bangladesh this way. gathered on the water's edge the members of a large family who fled their homes two days ago during what the me and my military calls clearance operations. we were totally blockaded in our village they wouldn't allow us out and we began to run out of food. to beg them explains what happened next. the army surrounded our village and set it alight our husbands and sons were slaughtered we ran away to save our lives we can take anything with us except what we were wearing. and then she adds some brutal detail. if they found a woman they'd rape her and then throw her away so she couldn't be found they did this in village after village at this point two things become clear the first is
that the exodus of britain from the wild down from its peak is still going on the second is that the number of people who've lost their lives inside me and mark may be extremely high so many of the people arriving now are young mothers with children there aren't nearly enough husbands brothers or fathers and despite statements to the contrary by the government of and sung suchi the violence across the water goes on jonah how al-jazeera bangladesh. nicholas hawk is includes up along in bangladesh for us that's these exalted with the m. also nicholas what's the feeling among bangladeshis there about the number of refugees arriving across the border. well has been i'm and it's one of the relief points where ranger refugees have been queuing up since dawn nick to try to get one bag of rice and there's top dozens of them here there are dozens of
relief points like this in the area that we are and there are much more further closer to the border right or the round the corner from here are bangladeshi villages and they're sussed for from malnutrition they live on less than two dollars a day they have their own set of problems and so you know refugees ready to refugees have been coming to bangladesh for decades leaving persecution and so there's always been an uneasy tension between bangladeshis who rely on their government for help and rahane jazz who gets the help from international aid agencies and as more and more people come into this country this is going to be the biggest challenge for the governments of bangladesh to ensure that this this this process of of helping the rain just goes smoothly of course for the bangladeshis this is a temporary solution it can't be a long term plan to have so many rangers living here we're talking about more than
four hundred thousand there are more people here than there are people living in the city of atlanta or liverpool on the on the medium term the bangladeshi says if they continue to stay here then they will displace them on a remote island not too far from here and it's controversial because that island is prone to flooding and cycling awesome and what about the refugees themselves how they feeling. well you know a lot of the people that are here are the lucky ones that want to have survived and as joe mentioned in his in this story there are so many more and we don't know how many who have died in mean mar in the right kind state and although initially the government say that the clearing operation is over there are still people leaving their homeland and so they feel a sense of anger anger towards anger sang suu kyi someone that ranges have been supported when she was in house arrest for the last fifteen years and when she she
she ran in the election in two thousand and fifteen all the ranges are not allowed to vote the overwhelmingly supported her but in the past two years since she's come to power there's been an increase of mob violence led by extremist buddhist monks and the military on the range of people so a lot of people here are traumatized but what has happened but are angry at their leadership in yangon on their unwillingness to mention their their their name their revenge as she has never mentioned their name by hand and their unwillingness to recognize their persecution and their suffering. and to follow thanks. now another earthquake has sent people in mexico running back into the streets six point two magnitude quake shook southern mexico on saturday but no new damage was reported in the capital the off the shelf is a setback for rescue efforts off to choose days quake that killed at least three
hundred people heidi castro reform. we're now past the one hundred hour. taking trying to reach people who were possibly still trapped alive in the six story on the still thing that one story behind it is now. and just like a moment to despite the reality that each minute these are less likely like survivors. people here are riding on it. before dawn the sight of an ambulance gave hope that another survivor had been pulled out of this collapsed office building in mexico city but that was not so the patient was a rescuer who suffered a leg injury then surely before eight a.m. local time a six point two magnitude aftershock sent everyone running from the teetering rubble the new quake centered about seven hundred kilometers away halted the rescue operations for about half an hour each minute his counts and volunteers marking
their arms with names and blood types as a precaution continue to work without rest you know one of their. own asli i'm tired but what i'm feeling is nothing compared to what the people trapped inside are feeling it can't be compared to rescuers believe perhaps six people are still alive under the debris a crane removed a significant portion of the fourth floor once an accounting firm underneath a list of more than forty names of those who are still missing their family members have set up a makeshift camp the family's sleeping here now for more than four nights living off the generosity of strangers has been bringing food and words of comfort they're clinging to hope even as the hours pass is the most it was just. the idea that my niece is still alive gives us strength not just her but all the people inside the building was sure she and everyone else will be rescued alive while some families put on
a brave face others cannot hide their anguish each moment of waiting an eternity. i spoke with a rescuer from israel who said that his team thinks it's still going to be many hours before finally making physical contact with these possible survivors but he says he has said that since hour one and now stretching on past hour one hundred nothing has shaken his belief that there are still signs of life underneath the pile of rubble and that is what's motivating everyone here the rescuers the families and the community members to continue their vigil we're going to take a great guy when we come back on the edges in a puerto rico assessing the damage from hurricane maria and the cost to clean it up . and on alert thousands evacuated on the results are out and the bali is rumbling spawn fears of a volcano eruption. through

spain has arrested and released senior catalan government employees instead in three to four thousand national police and civil defense forces to stop the vote spain can no longer count on the seventeen thousand regional bullies known as marceau's and that sets up a potential conflict between two armed forces with very different goals for the national police charged with shutting down the referendum and the lawsuit to see their duty as protecting the rights of catalans making matters worse the spanish troops are housed in four ships off the coast of catalonia and boycotting local port workers refused to dock the ships as spanish delegate in catalonia says spain is not trying to control the most of those just to coordinate with them but i don't know if what we have is a not a substitute in of the roles of the police they keep their role as far as population security goes however they will be helped by the civil guard and
