weapons i can't i can't the geneva based coalition of campaigning groups for more than one hundred countries has promoted a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons. this is a time of great global tension. where fear. to unspeakable horror the specter of nuclear conflict looms large once more if there's ever a time for states to declare their opposition to nuclear weapons that moment now. with north korea's repeated nuclear weapons tests and its trading of insults with the united states war seems a more real possibility now than at any time since the cold war the united states has great strength and patience but if it is forced to defend itself. we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea donald trump is also threatening

to take the united states out of the iran nuclear agreement the negotiations for the nuclear treaty were boycotted by the americans but the other nuclear weapons states britain france china russia israel india and pakistan also say they won't sign the message we are sending is to remind them of the commitments that they have already made that say also are obliged to work for nuclear free world. these weapons of fire and fury have not been used in anger since one thousand nine hundred forty five but the haunting images of hiroshima and nagasaki still testament to their horror to be phillips al-jazeera london. the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons or i can works with four hundred sixty eight partner organizations across the world it was founded in vienna in two

thousand and seven during an international conference on the nuclear nonproliferation treaty the group promotes a u.n. treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons adopted by one hundred twenty two nations it doesn't include the united states russia china britain or france well though this week icon's executive director tweeted that donald trump was a moron speaking after the award she was more diplomatic the election of president donald trump has made a lot of people feel very uncomfortable with the fact that he alone can authorize the use of nuclear weapons and there's nothing people can do to stop him. or you can be with a tweet. who seems to be taking rational decisions very quickly. and it's sort of not listening to expertise is it just puts a spotlight on a spotlight on what this nuclear weapons really mean. there are no right hands
3:11 am
whether for the wrong weapons or u.s. president donald trump plan to decertify the iranian nuclear deal has been criticized by many governments the european commission says iran is complying with the agreement and that all sides should stick to their commitments russia's foreign minister is also supporting the deal from washington d.c. told markham and reports. in typical style the u.s. president heightened suspense over the fate of the landmark nuclear deal with iran when he posed with senior military officials cryptically he said maybe it's the calm before the storm donald trump wouldn't explain whether he was referring to iran but again he made clear his distaste for what he's condemned as an embarrassing deal made by his predecessor barack obama we must put an end to iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement as to the letter of the deal his administration has twice certified
3:12 am
to the u.s. congress that iran is fundamentally complying with the terms earlier this week defense secretary james mattis said holding iran to it was in america's security interest i believe at this point in time absent indications to the contrary it is something the president should consider staying with but if he does refuse to certify donald trump could force congress to make the next move it has sixty days to review its options and those include sanctions the u.s. president's allies in congress say their aim is to force iran back to the bargaining table i'm saying that we need a new and broader approach that looks at fixing the problems with the deal and confronting iran to campaign for a purely aggression in the region that may involved were imposed sanctions but there's no reason we shouldn't have some time for diplomacy to work with iran's foreign minister told al jazeera that by withdrawing trump would be damaging u.s.
3:13 am
credibility so i believe the united states would be much better off if the united states agreed to abide by did the because if it didn't the international community would never trust any commitment by the united states even those who say the deal is bad acknowledge that renewing sanctions would have an economic impact on the united states boeing were. of america's biggest employers has signed twenty billion dollars in orders from iranian airlines it warned that one hundred thousand american jobs are in jeopardy if sanctions are re-imposed trump is also at odds with his allies including the british embassy here pointedly tweeted the nuclear deal it's working we'll all be listening closely when the president makes his announcement next week a few days before the resort of occasion deadline tom ackerman al-jazeera washington post and i had an al-jazeera also suchi won the nobel peace prize in one thousand nine hundred one but is minimized leaders still worthy of the owner. and

3:18 am
but it was the could his body was wrapped in a message clearly saying. it was iraq's current president fled massoud and childhood friend who. followed by kurdish president. at times his political foe and at other times an ally. then it was iran's foreign minister followed by iraqi officials but the big absence was iraq's prime minister hyderabadi perhaps a reflection of the current tensions between the central government and the kurds following to vote for secession. but this was a day for his people the generations of kurds who grew up during his. i'm very sad after he was sick kurdistan had many sorrows we lost many soldiers in the war now we're all friends he created a women's battalion in the america i'm very proud to be part of it. this grievance
3:19 am
of the many people lined the streets of his body was carried through to city kurdish authorities had declared a seven warning period certainly the mood is somebody here people have been lining up throughout the city to say their last good bye to mom this is how they refer to him ma'am uncle in kurdish. an affectionate term that was given to tell about me by his friends one that he carried throughout his career. has been waiting from early morning near de berry a place like many here he regrets the demise of tell about any just as iraq's kurds are facing turbulent times many are now at the mire if he was still a long life the kurds would get independence now the turks iran and the west are all against the fight we don't want to close the borders the situation will be
3:20 am
different if he was still here in two thousand and twelve taliban he said this was not to call for independence stating that neighboring countries will close the borders five years later iraqi kurds have never been so close to secession to predictions of taliban either pragmatist now a very real threat hanging over the kurdish region but at the. the body of a missing u.s. soldiers being found two days after an ambush of a military patrol in the soldiers' one of four u.s. troops killed in an attack by suspected i so linked fighters it happened two hundred kilometers north of the capital niamey. a gun show that was shadowed for this weekend at the las vegas casino has been counseled the organizers say it didn't seem prudent in light of sunday's mass shooting which left fifty eight people dead gun homicides have become a common cause of death in the u.s. but the federal government still does not fund research into gun control jake award
3:21 am
reports a few facts are clear the u.s. leads the world in gun violence it has the most relaxed gun laws of any developed economy and americans own more guns than anyone else but there's almost no good data on gun violence in the u.s. because the government does not fund gun research here since one thousand nine hundred ninety six congress has forbidden the centers for disease control which tracks all threats to human health from pursuing any research that might advocate for gun control essentially killing the study of gun violence but researchers have found new methods of measuring the effects of so many guns siddarth size part of a stanford research group that uses computing power to model the effect of so-called right to carry laws on the states that passed legislators have argued that carrying a weapon or to determine a crime but that is not what the math shows. a right to carry law is increased
3:22 am
crime specifically and there's pretty robust findings that violent crime would increase between thirteen fifteen percent every year tens of thousands of americans die of the loop and that's why the government here has spent billions studying the outbreaks and promoting safety in producing cheap vaccines but guns kill more americans than that and yet the government does not effectively study that's why california is going its own way the california state legislature just put aside five million dollars to establish a california firearm violence research center at u.c. davis to study the unique side effects of guns in america. well frank zimring of u.c. berkeley says research about california could reveal truths about the nation so if you can get the answers in sacramento california you have answers that are probably going to apply for the rest of the country and the rest of the organized world
3:23 am
perhaps it's the first step to truly understand the risks in a country that has more guns than people jake aboard al-jazeera berkeley california the american civil liberties union is suing the trumpet ministration after it rolled back measures on birth control employers will now be exempt from providing health insurance to their employees that covers contraceptives the measure is aimed at protecting religious freedom the lawsuit claims the change will be unconstitutional estabrook has more from washington. well the a.c.l.u. says that this is a real setback for women's reproductive rights keep in mind before obamacare most insurance plans didn't cover contraception for most women and if they did have contraception coverage many women had to pay a huge co-pay so the obamacare eliminated all that providing free birth control for many women many or some non-profits religious organizations contested that
3:24 am
and so the white house says that this would actually this new rule would appeal to them it would only affect about one hundred twenty thousand women but keep in mind this new rule says it would not only apply to not for profits but it would also apply to for profit so companies publicly publicly held companies could say that they have a religious reason or a moral reason could deny potentially health care or contraception coverage to their female employees and this is what the a.c.l.u. is so upset about at the same time they say those insurance plan would also cover a reptile dysfunction medications for men so they say sort of a double standard so that's why the a.c.l.u. is filing suit it's it's unknown at this time how successful they will be in challenging it it is going to be in san francisco which is it's been filed in sandy's not for profits with these companies not paid for contraception that women
3:25 am
might still be able to get coverage under a government plan and that might be something that the a.c.l.u. may be looking at in this lawsuit that they're filing the u.n. says it's braced for a further exodus of range of refugees to bangladesh already over half a million will hinge or have crossed over for me and since the end of august scaping the military crackdown in the state of iraq and that's being denounced as ethnic cleansing claims it's fighting separatist fighters in the violence against the hinge it has led to calls that mia mars' lead to all sides who choose should be stripped of the nobel peace prize she won twenty six years ago but despite the current crisis she remains popular at home got a boom album reports from young grown. a military campaign is being waged against the ruhi northern mean but here in yang gone you wouldn't know it the city is celebrating the lighting festival which signaled the end of the traditional period

and the violence the suit change is not the first place prize winner to disappoint supporters who once campaigned for her former israeli leader she moaned paris launched an offensive into lebanon in one thousand nine hundred ninety six just two years after receiving the prize for his part in negotiating the oslo accords for the arab israeli conflict barack obama received the prize months after becoming u.s. president by the time he collected it he devoted u.s. troop numbers in afghanistan to triple. analysts say that when it comes to suit she the focus shouldn't be on the peace prize but on the military which effectively controls mean she has no real control over the actual commanders in the forces doing this and her main failing here is spain not speaking out about it she's not to blame for focusing on her as a distraction the important thing is to actually look at the plight of all these
