removed by the then secretary general ban ki-moon pending a review that was never completed u.n. aides confirmed this happened after the saudi government had threatened to withdraw its funding to the united nations we are told the current secretary general carefully vetted personally and endorsers this report this year there's a change in the format of the report an x one the black list which contains the names of the perpetrators has been divided into two sections section a contains the names of nations and non-state actors guilty of acts against children but those that have been subsequently found to have attempted to improve the protection of children during the reporting period have been moved into section b. the saudi led military coalition is in this category along with the afghan national police and the somali national army this may not be enough to avert what is likely
7:04 am
to be strong protest from the saudi government in coming hours. my. united nations spain's biggest political crisis in decades the country's top court has suspended a session of the regional parliament in catalonia local leaders were planning to declare secession during monday's sitting the speaker of parliament says the central government in madrid has put freedom of expression in danger. but this is an act of extreme seriousness because it cut tails the freedom of expression of members of catalonia parliament this shows the total incapacity of the spanish government to result political problems in a political way we repeat what we've always said that we will not allow the parliament to be sounds that. spain's biggest banks appear to be preparing to move their headquarters out of catalonia. he decided to move its legal base to come to the country's southeast on their own reports the border is also considering
7:05 am
relocation because of the political uncertainty. reports from boss alone.
7:06 am
only this money that was sent into right now and that referendum on safe promises shows etc. helps me add up thankfully i don't make impact to cattle i'm place banks already saying that they could move outside the region at this point out that if catalonia state needs to find a plane that economic impact would be for temporary. u.s. president donald trump has accused iran again of not living up to the spirit of the twenty fifty nuclear deal trump ministration is expected to decertify the agreement next week saying it's not in the national interest of the u.s. military leaders at the white house to discuss the deal we must not allow iran to attain to obtain nuclear weapons the iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence bloodshed and chaos across the middle east that is why we
7:07 am
must put an end to iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement particle hain has more now from washington d.c. . just saw twenty four hours ago secretary of defense jim mattis tell the u.s. congress that he thinks that it's in the u.s. national security interest to stay in the iran deal and at the time that many people thought he was speaking to an audience of one president donald trump but if you really look back in now with this reporting that president may have found what he sees as a loophole where he can decertify but the not push congress to reimpose sanctions satisfy his base mattis is a key voice he is respected on capitol hill and we're starting to see some republicans especially within the leadership say basically it will quote the uses the toothpaste is always a out of the bottle the money has been given to iran the sanctions have been lifted if they were to reimpose sanction they know the allies would blame them for and
7:08 am
walked away from the nuclear deal and it's not at all clear that the allies would follow suit and which would mean the same sions were somewhat toothless so it's not confirmed that the republicans will go along but it's also important to point out when ever things go in the congress anything could happen lobby matters so you will be faced with a choice between the pro israeli government lobby and all of the l. eyes and other countries like china and russia who said we signed this deal we're not renegotiating so there will be pressure on congress not to mention the fact that the trump administration cannot point to any evidence that iran isn't living up to their part of the deal the i.a.e.a. has said they're in one hundred percent compliance to get around that the trump administration keeps saying but the agreement said that iran would and this is important that they quote the deal they said positively contribute to regional and international peace and security the deal does the agreement doesn't say that it doesn't say iran will contribute it says the agreement will contribute they can't
7:09 am
quite square that peg when you ask them about it so there might have a shaky argument but if they do this that it goes to congress to decide if they scuttle the deal at least from a u.s. perspective. iraqi forces have captured the town of how we and the surrounding area this was i saw as last stronghold in northern iraq the military says some fighting is still going on to the north and east of the town where i solicit around it troops were greeted by jubilant villages in that six kilometers northwest of the town where the capture of her wages the only air that remains on the ice of control in iraq is a stretch along the western border with syria well the army's been trying to defeat i so since the group captured large swathes of northern iraq three years ago after months of airstrikes by u.s. led coalition warplanes iraqi forces launched a major offensive to retake to crete in march twenty fifteen they declared victory a month later then the army moved on to ramadi in anbar province i still was forced to retreat from the area in december twenty fifth dene ramadi is strategic because
7:10 am
it's roads connect to syria and in june twenty sixth seen the army reach out for the first city to fall to eisele it's also in anbar province and about seventy kilometers from the capital baghdad where the battle for mosul lasted nine months and victory was declared in july the capture of how we genoud leaves just one remaining area under eyesores control the focus now is on that area along the syrian border hundreds of people have gathered in las vegas to remember a police officer who was killed in sunday's shooting at a country music festival thirty four year old charles and hartfield was off duty during the incident he was among fifty eight victims of gunman student paddock it was the worst mass shooting in modern u.s. history. meanwhile the u.s. is most powerful gun lobby the national rifle association wants to restrict the use of a device which allow semiautomatic weapons to fire automatically some of the weapons used by gunman steam have been modified with the device on
7:11 am
a delicate reports from las vegas. for years the republican party in the powerful national rifle association or and already resisted any calls for gun control and president donald trump they have a staunch supporter of the right to bear arms something he made clear in april you caved through for me and i am going to come through for you so proud to be the first sitting president to address the n.r.a. leadership forum since our wonderful ronald reagan in one thousand nine hundred eighty three. but in the wake of sunday's mass shooting in which stephen product killed fifty eight people the n.r.a. has called for a change and republicans say that open to talks at issue is the use of stocks a modification that allows semiautomatic weapons to fire automatically something police say steven product used with horrific consequences these types of
7:12 am
modifications a currently legal but in a statement the n.r.a. say additional regulations and now needed senior republicans say they're willing to talk fully automatic weapons and demand for a long time apparently this allows you to take some automatic turn in a fully automatic so clearly that's something we need to look into and people are just coming up to speed with what these things are and so that is something we're definitely going to look into. the n.r.a. statement and consequent republican backing is significant despite a spate of mass shootings in recent years talk of restrictions on gun control are extremely rare we certainly welcome that would like to be part of that conversation and we would like to see a clear understanding of the facts and we'd like to see input from the victims' families from law enforcement from policymakers and we're expecting the hearings and other. important fact finding efforts by now and we want to be part of that discussion are certainly open to moving forward democrats of long clamoring for a chance to talk about new gun control laws now they may have the chance many would relish the opportunity to push things further and talk about limiting magazine
