supreme dignity of my country by referring to it as a rocket by doing so however he committed an irreversible mistake of making a rockets visit to the entire u.s. 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 chastised even by americans as 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 underground the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists who had a rare meeting with a 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. the head of the u.n. says refugee agency has been meeting refugees in bangladesh in camps they've told
filippo ground there about rape and violence in myanmar rakhine state. this has been seems to twenty fifth of august the fastest and most urgent refugee emergency in the world you know the figures but let me repeat them we estimate that four hundred then almost four hundred and thirty thousand refugees from myanmar from northern iraq kind state have poorly into bangladesh in the past few week first and foremost violence has to stop because it is that violence that has caused the flight of the people violence has to stop all shock is turning to anger among the pouring into bangladesh some are calling for an armed struggle against myanmar forces nicholas hawk reports from the border region inside this bag is a twelve year old girl she's being carried to the camp by her cousins after crossing
the border i. mean more soldiers slit her brother's throat they then came after her cousins won't say exactly what they did to fetch of a since she's been unable to speak eat or drink whatever they did has put her in the state of shock the young sons who choose responsible for all this she is responsible for the killings for the violence against our people. supported the noble laureate hoping she would bring an end to their persecution instead mob attacks led by buddhist monks and the military against their community have intensified since she came to power in two thousand and fifteen. despite the return to democracy they can't vote go to school or practice their religion freely. and this is the just salvation army formally known as keen as secular militant
group responsible for the august attacks against the me and my security forces their leader told long continues to call on all men and women to fight what they describe as the brutal regime of yangon and and to the oppression of religious. we met one of the group's members in a secret location it's the first time they accept to talk publicly he says they have no choice but to take up arms in order to stop what they describe as the start of a genocide against their people. if they don't give us all rights if they keep killing our people raping all women then yes there will be more attacks to come this is our land we will find. more as response to the groups 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
a people stateless and in limbo. who continue to suffer of unspeakable violence. nicholas hawke al-jazeera at the bangladesh me and more border. the main challenger to germany's chancellor angela merkel has cast his ballot in the general election the leader of the social democrats martin childes has urged people to boycott the far right and immigration a.f.d. party polls suggest that merkel has a strong lead for a possible fourth term in office put a party isn't expected to win a majority feeling uncertainty about what kind of ruling coalition will emerge let's go live now to work but when i was here as lawrence lee is there so historic fourth term win then more or less an assured for anglo merkel lawrence but what about the makeup of this this coalition that she's going to have to form.
yeah i mean. clearly a.j. one of the things that's come out of this is the emergence of the alternative for germany as a new force in german politics and that's that's come directly out of merkel decision to bring in a million refugees which was a very very brave thing to do some people say stupid certainly and in any other country she would have survived that but here she has because because she's so well respected but clearly there is a substantial body of opinion in germany that doesn't want immigration and doesn't like muslims and and in a sense in proportion representation is sort of coalition government is fair enough that these people have a voice and therefore some seats in parliament the question for merkel i think on the assumption that you know she's going to win is whether or not she retains the coalition with the sense of left party called the grand coalition here that would put the alternative for germany as the main opposition policy and actually give them quite a platform inside domestic politics if he doesn't want to do that they want to
sideline them then she would break away with a sense of left they then would become the opposition and she form a coalition with other parties instead including the greens which is also fine because in a sense merkel doesn't actually need the sense of left because she's effectively a social democrat wrapped up in conservative play the anyway her policies are so close to those of martin in the sense of the party that you know sort of carry on in the same same way and so i think i think obviously it's a tremendous achievement winning winning for. helmut kohl has had that amount of power before in modern germany but there will be a level of bittersweetness i think that there what they'll have to do is defeat them in argument in the bundestag what is the significance then of a fourth term victory for. both germany and for the wider world. yeah i mean i think i think i think for germans and the european union in a way it's very much the same thing you know she's become sort of indispensable i
think and germans you know they're very clued in saw something in the news they they they watch television news a lot and they and they take it very seriously and they by and large as a body politic can't stand trump. and they and they are very very worried about about the shape of things a lot of them a can't understand why britain is leaving the european union either and merkel herself has said that germany can no longer necessarily trust the u.k. and u.s. is too close its allies merkel is also very much aware that emanuel not grown the french presidency is wrapped up in stuff to do with labor reform an internal french policy even though he can talk to trump and so in the end you have a situation where when she looks around she sees a self as the most important democrats elected politician and that is a big duty for think now lawrence many thanks i was there as lawrence lee reporting live from berlin the taliban says that it was behind a suicide attack on a nato convoy in afghanistan's capital kabul security sources have told them to
zero but at least three people died and several others were injured the attacker detonated a car bomb targeting a danish military convoy taliban fighters have escalated attacks in recent months challenging afghanistan's thinly stretched security forces. there's been protests in mexico after a ports that partly collapsed buildings will be demolished just five days after the huge earthquake that relatives have been demand demonstrating calling for rescue efforts to continue the number of confirmed dead is now close to three hundred following the magnitude seven point one earthquake heidi jocasta reports now from mexico city 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 the. honestly i'm tired but what i'm feeling is nothing compared to what the people trapped inside are feeling it can't be compared 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 and words of comfort they're clinging to hope even as the hours pass is the most it was just. the

again the top stories here on al-jazeera the crisis on the korean peninsula shows no sign of abating korea north korea's foreign minister has delivered a response to donald trump's threats at the united nations general assembly and u.s. bombers have flown north of the demilitarized zone in korea and shows a show of force. the head of the un's refugee agency has been meeting. refugees in bangladeshi camps they've told filippo grandi about the murder rape and violence they say is happening in mass rakhine state. chancellor angela merkel's main challenger martin childs from the social democrats has cast his vote in germany's general election workers expects to win
a fourth term in office but there's uncertainty about what kind of ruling coalition will and much like. the u.s. has warned of unrest in iraq's kurdish region ahead of monday's historic independence referendum preparations for the votes are in full swing despite calls by the u.s. the u.n. and britain to delay as iraq's central government maintains that the referendum is illegal while turkey and iran are warning of consequences of a serious heart of the honey joins us now live from a bill in iraq's kurdish region so it looks very much as though despite all this pressure the referendum is going to go ahead. i don't know whether you can hear me it looks as though the referendum is going ahead. but doesn't look as though holder can hear me luckily we have a report from. here it is. he has dedicated his life to the kurdish flag
making a living out of it even after spending two years in. jail but since he started his business twenty one years ago it's never been so good his products are selling like hotcakes. why are flags from all countries raised at the u.n. except ours it's enough our children died in the war against i so now they send us the shia paramilitary forces to scare us we are mountain people and we're not afraid of saddam hussein and now we're not afraid of the molecule. it's plastered with kurdish colors there's a spike in national ever since the referendum for self-determination was announced . also proud of their president muscled barzani who stands firm despite international pressure to push the referendum the majority of the five million registered voters are expected to say yes the vote is also taking place in the disputed territories currently under control of the kurdish forces but one of the
biggest challenges is that most of the people from those areas and now scattered around the kurdish region many of them living in camps here there is none of the joy celebrations just a short drive away. is more worried about the fate of her son she hasn't heard from him since he was captured by i still about a year ago from the town of. the life we've known for thirty or forty years we will say yes but who knows if we look at our rights we from the disputed areas. we want someone who will be able to stare us to safety an estimated three hundred thousand displaced iraqis will vote in one thousand camps across the region their ballots will go through a special procedure. for example this is the ballot any vote yes then it's put into an envelope this envelope will go into another with
a name and ration card number once checked if the name is on the registering we will count and if not we will throw it away. but this is a historic moment once they have been waiting for for a lifetime even if non-binding for many this referendum is the last step before declaring independence. i think we fixed the problem hala can hear me now she's with us live from erbil in northern iraq in that kurdish region i was asking just before your report it seems that despite all the pressure that's been applied here this advisory referendum is non-binding referendum is going to go ahead. indeed actually kurdish president said on saturday that about postponing the referendum is now. there was. a delegation. baghdad having talks with the central government but reach an impasse there are
many thorny issues between the two sides. that it's because of all resolved issues that he took the decision to go ahead with this referendum back that keeps on saying that they want negotiations before devote their bill at this point to saying no we will have the vote and then we can. have negotiations after that they say that they would never be the ones that are pulling out of these negotiations now that at this moment kurdish president is holding a meeting with the various kurdish political factions he is supposed to be holding a press conference we'll be hearing more from him in the hours to come and we will be from here many thanks indeed. more than fourteen thousand people on the indian resort island of bali have been told to move

orders from spain and once again we denounce the government's intention to take control of the captain and police the catalan government does not accept the intervention of the state he says that was the message he and catalans police chief delivered to the spanish interior minister in a meeting on saturday what we see here is not a technical. see is a political maneuver the spanish government is trying to take control of because of the police because the spanish government has vowed to its voters that the referendum the fiber in the will not take place catalonia leaders insist they will carry out an october first referendum asking voters whether to separate from spain spanish president marianna calls that vote illegal and says he will stop it. the most sensible the most reasonable and the most democratic thing to do is to stop they should say there is no referendum they know there isn't going to be one. 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 those 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 who 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 disorder guard and national police and they will be coordinated by the interior ministry the muscles have long
