bangladesh where refugees continue to arrive from just across the water. polls open in germany general election voters are deciding if angela merkel will win a fourth term as chancellor. and how american sport is becoming something of a political football. the insults between north korea and the united states have ramped up as both nations show off their military strength u.s. president donald trump took to twitter again to call north korea's leader the rocket man he's warned kim jong un and his foreign minister that they won't be around much longer if the rhetoric continues the threat came after north korea's foreign minister real host spoke at the u.n. general assembly. he tried to insult the
11:02 am
supremes of my country by referring it to a rocket by doing so however he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets visit the entire us mainland you know of it of all the more none other than trump himself is on a suicide mission. meanwhile the us aslant of its bombers north of the demilitarized zone for the first time in years the un secretary general has met with foreign minister rio has called for a day escalation now kathy novak has the latest from seoul. 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
11:03 am
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 insults but threats as well saying the u.s. 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're 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
11:04 am
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 south korea and japan share a fear of being on the receiving end of any threats from north korea rob the bride has been to a so-called friendship festival in tokyo to gauge the level of a low. this is an annual event meant to celebrate the close cultural ties between south korea and japan in reality it is a relationship that is often troubled diplomatically but according to the governments of the two countries it has never been more important to be working closely together given the shared threat of north korea around the possibility that the standoff could turn into some kind of conflict at people in japan know that given their proximity to the korean peninsula and also that close alliance with the united states it's almost inconceivable that they would be able to stay out of any
11:05 am
conflict and people here do look with increasing alarm at the kind of personal rhetoric and war of words that's going on between kim jong un of north korea and president trump of the us. as adults we should use peaceful means such as diplomacy to settle this matter. if you continue to provoke each other it's a problem that could escalate into something horrible what concerns people here especially is now tour by north korea setting off some sort of nuclear device over the pacific ocean a presumably being launched on a missile that would have to fly over the top of japan in recent weeks japan has already experienced two missiles being fired over its territory having a missile now carrying a nuclear warhead takes things to a whole new and very dangerous level the head of the un's refugee agency has been meeting will hinge refugees in bangladeshi camps they've told filippo grand day

11:08 am
land we will find. more as response to the group's attack is described by the un as textbook ethnic cleansing the group is ill equipped and has few weapons it is no match to me and morris military might but it has the support of many refugees at people stateless and in limbo. who continue to suffer of unspeakable violence and joins us now live from long in bangladesh near the border with nicholas first tell us something about way away and the situation right now. well you know as we speak there are still people coming through the border we're just a few kilometers from the land border with me and we were there yesterday we. mean by security forces and that's the first picture trolling of the area landmines on the ground and they're building up barbed wire fencing. they are still really that
11:09 am
are crossing the border adding to the four hundred thousand people that have crossed the border here in the matter of weeks people are trying to get as much relief. but a lot of people here are just coming back empty handed they're still in need a dire need for humanitarian help for their injuries here most of them are young women and children and what are we to make of those calls for struggle against military. so the arakan through a hinge in a salvation army was created a few years ago by a man called ultra law he was born in karachi were raised in saudi arabia from ranger origin he came back to this country because he felt that the democrats politically elected leader of me and martin sons which he wasn't doing enough to end the persecution of the people of myanmar you have to remember that there are
11:10 am
hinges overwhelmingly supported and thanks to cheat when she was under house arrest for the last fifteen years and when she came to power she's been a sudden surge of violence against. with the arrival of democracy there's been an increase of hate speech towards minorities especially targeting the range so they're still not allowed to vote they don't have access to school they don't they don't have access to take on medical facilities and now according to the un they're going through what they describe as a snake cleansing so for many people here the men that have made it across to this side of the border it's time to take up arms because there are no other solutions they see to their plight there's been. a fact finding report through kofi annan and he he said a few months ago that mean more needs to stop the persecution of revenge just accept them as their success as their citizens and in august this armed group decided to launch attacks to remind the world that they are the they are here and
11:11 am
they're still being persecuted they full steps through these armed attacks that they will raise their plight and that they will manage to somehow. stem out the violence against their people some of these attacks have been successful they've been they've managed to take over some police stations some border guard posting areas just a few weeks ago were under the control of this armed group but now he might be in more military are fighting back and it's. they're clearing operation. hundreds of thousands of people. many thanks indeed nicholas reporting from the bangladeshi side of the bangladesh me and mom blogger. polls open in germany in the general election that's expected to see chancellor angela merkel win a fourth term in office merkel's main challenger martin childes as urged germans to
11:12 am
boycott the far right anti immigration a.f.d. party he's just voted and a third of the country's voters are still undecided that's fueling uncertainty about what kind of ruling coalition will emerge let's go live now to al jazeera lawrence lee who is reporting on the election for us what are we to make that of the. uncertainty about the kind of coalition that will emerge at the end of this poll even if angela merkel wins her fourth. well i mean i don't think it's going to look tremendously different to what it is now you know the quest the question really is if merkel carries old with with. mentions from the center left then what that would probably mean is that the far right alternative for germany would be the official position they're going to have dozens of m.p.'s anyway but if they were the official opposition then they would actually have
11:13 am
a biggest say in domestic affairs if merkel decides not to do that it doesn't really need to because a policy is so close to the center left anyway in many ways that you can actually do without them if she went into coalition with other groups that would make the sense left the official opposition. for germany lower down given that she's going to win i'm sure she would have thought about these ramifications already and one of the questions is going to be to what extent she wants to try to bury the dea and try to silence them insofar as she can inside parliament what about the significance of a fourth angle but for germany and for the rest of the world. yeah well i mean for germany you know she's just become pretty much indispensable. she will by the end of a fourth term have been in power as long as helmut kohl who is known as the father of modern germany. she demands respect really for from across the political
11:14 am
spectrum inside germany it's impossible to think of another. european politician of any stripe who could've taken in a million refugees and survive politically but she has done it even if it's at the cost of the emergence of the heir of the f.t. is a force and there is no other european politician who's got as much longevity or respects anywhere really in europe at all is very important too for the european union if you look at the last twelve months the far right got beaten in austria in the presidential election they didn't break through in the netherlands they lost in france it was on paper looking like a very rocky year for the european union with the emergence of these so-called populist parties on the on the hard rights by they've been seen off by and large and i think merkel's victory will be seen in the e.u. as putting the icing on that cake more broadly than that i think germans look at they they they hate trump mostly in this country they can understand what britain is all about nowadays. in france is very much involved in french domestic politics
11:15 am
and what they want to see in their own chancellor is someone who can stand on the world stage and take on trump and fight for the maintenance of the iran nuclear deal and and for climate change issues and things like that and if you ask people well it's a big scary world out there who is the only person to do this obviously is only one answer or it's many thanks lawrence lee reporting live from berlin. we're going to weather update next here on al-jazeera then catalonia is campaign for independence from spain the central government in madrid is to take control of the region's police force we'll tell you why and we'll look at why there's mounting anger in mexico in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake. by this guy ninety. four off the coast of the italian riviera. how i would say it's
