a former u.s. ambassador to nigeria he says the international community needs to keep a close eye on a jury's judicial process. we should be concerned because we will have no independent way of verifying how fair the trials are but there are other reasons to be concerned as well i think first of all the numbers to be tried are very large sixteen hundred at least at first there are only four judges that have been chosen to conduct the trials. that means the trials will either be very quick or the whole process will go on for a long time and then finally most of those who are being tried have been detained without charge for a relatively long period of time and one has to question whether or not evidence has been gathered by the authorities or whether their detention was simply
3:07 am
arbitrary the conditions of night in nigeria and places of detention are pretty bad amnesty international for example has estimated that some thousands of detainees have died mostly from disease lack of water lack of food so yes the fact that the trials are going ahead means that there is a judicial process in place it remains to be seen whether it will be fair at least twelve or henge refugees have drowned after their boat capsized on its way from me in mar to bangladesh ten at the dead were children eight people were rescued it is the third and sit in of her hands are refugees drowning says the latest crackdown by the me and more military began in august hundreds of thousands from the muslim minority group have been forced to leave rakhine state mohamed shampoo has more from cox's bazaar in bangladesh. with news that yet another boat full of refugees

debate one is on this is a sight a few in catalonia would welcome the national police drafted in after a supreme court ruling to guard the high court ahead of tuesday's address to parliament by the region's president carlos preached a moment it's a bit scary to see. it in the streets because i am used to see them. used to see so many bodies we actually see yes and now they're here. we have them on our doorstep and it's like feeling under siege. these police. have really hit us hard and it's i think it's very bad here at the moment a spokesman for the squadron catalonians police force said it had no choice but to accept the supreme court ruling. we don't understand it at all we have being guardian disappear court of catalonia for the last twenty four
3:11 am
years and there's never been any aeration to our service so we don't understand it and we don't like it but it is a judicial distraction so we accepted. them with us while the extremely unusual you might call it provocative site of spain's national police on guard outside this important building in central barcelona is a reminder of just what sensitive times these are as this region and the whole of spain await a possible unilateral declaration of independence by catalonia on monday madrid again made it clear that an independence declaration would have immediate consequences. not at those. who are ready for any circumstances because we are already vaccinated against the fanaticism of mr pews them all and any hope that he will return to sanity and serenity therefore it's necessary to consider all possible options with worked on all of them one option is to use special

constitutional powers to revoke ptolemy if that were to happen there'd be far more to worry about than the national police guard outside the high court do you know how al-jazeera barcelona i am edges of armed police on the streets of catalonia and the violence during last week's vote echo the dark years of francisco franco's dictatorship many say the claim by some carillon nationalists that they were the only ones who suffered under franco ignores history and the vast majority of spaniards outside catalonia are bitterly opposed to any independence declaration or islay reports from central spain. across the her on the river valley you can see madrid away in the distance. the people here maintain the relics of war in tribute to the vicious history of spain. eighty years ago the forces of fascism try to encircle madrid the battle for rama is legendary this incline was called suicide hill by the anti fascist brigades twenty thousand died stopping franco from taking

the capital. basis was eleven and nine hundred thirty seven and ninety one his memory is undimmed. your number there more coriander like of what my mother and i run to a house looking for shelter we thought it was the end of the world we heard the explosions they made a great impression on me i understood then that we were at war. at the local museum you can see how outgunned the empty fascists were faced with the aircraft and tanks at franco's disposal these men and women came from across spain and far beyond to protect york from fascism only two years before the outbreak of world war two. and then i think if we get it after that madrid was called the heroic city they fought tooth and nail if madrid fell the next poets agree franco would have won the war sooner they want to talk all about this here because it's so important not only for historians what happened here eighty years
3:14 am
ago plays directly into the sense of outrage that many spanish people have about what's happening in catalonia right now the capsule as they say are using the campaign for independence as a historical crutch to cover up their own sense of entitlement and victimhood the sense that the cat's lands were the only people who suffered under franco when actually much of the rest of spain did too. in the nearby town which is nothing like as rich as much of modern catalonia the spanish flags are out in force large parts of spain suffered starvation after the war they will do it but the claims of the council are leadership for special sympathy and i look you up in april but here we are sad and worried we can't repeat history during the civil war the town square was washed in blood it wasn't only one region that was suffering. history can be read in more than one way. the legacy of franco is used in catalonia for a new sort of nationalism here though in an age of new european divisions they say

worse and smoke is drifting into the san francisco bay area. they trumpet ministration as scrapping rolls which limit air pollution from power plants that are the environmental protection agency scott pruitt announced the move in a speech to miners in kentucky he told them the war on coal is over it says the rules known as the clean power plan will be repealed on tuesday the plan was president barack obama's signature piece of environmental policy several u.s. states say they will challenge the top administration decision in court cheney hand works at three fifty oregon international climate campaign group he says advocates are working to stop what he calls an assault on the environment by the top administration by moving to repeal the clean power plan president trump administrator pruitt are continuing to just do the bidding of big polluters instead of actually representing the interests of our communities and our children's health and the environment so this is just the first move in a year long attempt to actually repeal this planet some things can be fought tooth
3:20 am
and nail on the way the evidence is clear that the clean power plant is a benefit for not only the environment but also for public health and for jobs the estimates were that it would save three thousand six hundred premature deaths tens of thousands of asthma attacks in our kids hundreds of thousands of job hours they're lost every year because people are getting out of attacks and are too sick to go to work on the economic side already in this country there are more than five times as many jobs in clean energy as there are jobs and coal or gas solar jobs are growing at twelve times the rate of the rest of the economy so this idea that there's a war on coal in this is bad for jobs as is the definition of fake news the real war here is a war on the environment the war on public health the war in our children and our communities this administration seems hell bent on continuing to roll back the types of protections we're going to need to not only address the climate crisis but to keep our communities safe from the pollution that's been devastating them for decades. iran is promising a crushing response if the u.s.
3:21 am
designates its only revolutionary guard as a terrorist group president trump has been promoting a more hawkish straight strategy on iran accusing it of supporting terrorism and exporting violence across the middle east and he say to withdraw u.s. government support for the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal this week iran says it is taking threats of any new sanctions very seriously. our position is very clear we hope that the american authorities will not continue their mistakes or commit such a strategic mistake and impose new sanctions that would declare the revolutionary guard as a terrorist organization if they do that iran's response will be decisive and overwhelming the u.s. will not be able to face the consequences we hope that those who are wise in america will take the right steps and stand against such a decision. it's a mess probably has more from tehran in the last few days the headlines here have been dominated by defiant rhetoric from iranian leaders who say that any actions by
3:22 am
the united states to impose new sanctions or to abandon the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal will be met with a strong response at a news conference iran's foreign ministry spokesman bufferin cos of me has said that it would be a strategic mistake for the white house to place the country's revolutionary guard corps on a list of terror organizations and that he hoped for a more rational response from the u.s. president the language in recent days from the revolutionary guard itself has been much stronger the chief commander has said that if the united states was to take such an action then its bases in the region would be considered strategic targets and that its troops in the region would be given the same status in the eyes of the iranian forces as isis fighters and even as countries who helped negotiate the nuclear dealers the united states not to take any actions to abandon it iran wants people to know that it will meet any new challenges from a position of strength it's posturing on both sides that is putting the obama administration's hard won nuclear deal in jeopardy. travis wished to withdraw from
3:23 am
the nuclear deal has to be endorsed by the u.s. senate but the latest target of his eye or on twitter happens to be the influential republican head of the senate foreign relations committee corker says trump is treating the oval office like a reality show and explosive newspaper interview he also said he was alarmed and concerned by the president's actions from washington al-jazeera as alan fischer reports. corker has a reputation as a reliable republican which makes his attack on the president even more remarkable in an interview with the new york times he accused donald trump of treating the office of president like a reality show but he warned his reckless threats on twitter could set the u.s. on the path to world war three such is the risk says the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee that he says i know for a fact that every single day at the white house it's a situation of trying to contain him it's not the first time bob corker has spoken out against the president after announcing last week he wasn't going to run for the
3:24 am
senate again he felt bold enough to see this i think. secretary tillerson secretary mabus and. chief of staff kelly. are. those people that help separate our country from chaos that kind of seems to upset president trump he took to twitter to claim that corker begged him to back him in the senate race but he refused that he asked to be secretary of state and was rejected and then you know expected corker to be a negative voice corker decided not to let that pass remember this is an open exchange from two senior republicans he responded it's a shame the white house has become an adult daycare center someone obviously missed their shift this morning he then followed up with the interview with the new york times i'm hoping that more senators will really echo what senator porker has said and really perhaps put some pressure on the white house to tighten their act and
3:25 am
really once in control of this president corker is said to be close to secretary of state rex tillerson who held a news conference last week to reaffirm his support for the president after it was claimed he called mr trump a moron let me tell you what i've learned about this president whom i did not know before taking this office he loves this country he puts americans and america first the smart center corker still has more than a year of his final senate term to run and could cause issues for the president and his agenda if his feud with the white house continues and if other senators actually break ranks and express the concerns senator corker insists the also have alan fischer i'll just you know washington nato says it is increasing its presence in southeast europe in the wake of russia's two thousand and fourteen an accession of crimea from ukraine and a multinational force is to be positioned in romania four thousand armenian troops will be supported by personnel from nine other nato countries. despite accusations
3:26 am
from moscow that nato is trying to win circle it organization secretary general says the multinational force is evidence of unity. they're not moving well to russia those so they're not mirroring rochelle playing by play in the shoulder by shoulder point but i think we're exposed by exercise we are responding in our way and we do it in the proportion to michoud and defensive way and we have to remember that of course you need to always have full force is we have more forces than they do response force but a whole lot of the you know we need to is to be so strong is to be so. united and so clear and coherent messaging that no adversary tries to know a potential tries to attack. hundreds of civilians are fleeing the iraqi town of a wager to escape the ongoing fighting there and u.s. back to iraqi troops an iranian trained shia militia declared victory over eisel
