backed kurdish fighters and later armed them. then last year's coup attempt and it got worse blame to cleric for two of the golan who lives in the u.s. they wanted him extradited for his alleged role the obama administration refused and the trump administration hasn't moved on it either that was a big issue when he first met president donald trump but that was overshadowed by what happened when he left the oval office. turkish security officers violently attacked what appeared to be peaceful protesters outside the turkish ambassador's residence fifteen of them were indicted in u.s. courts and as a result the u.s. stopped a planned sale of small arms to turkey turkey further angered the u.s. when it agreed to buy a russian missile defense system equipment that wouldn't work within nato has indicated he would be willing to trade americans imprisoned in turkey for golan but given that would be hard to do within the legal system something he really wants

the case thrown out against her citizen reza zurab who was awaiting trial in the u.s. for allegedly helping turkey. they'd sanctions against iran if it was a matter of wanting it back than wanting the case to go away it wanting him not to testify not wanting any of the details about their role in helping iran evade sanctions coming out in the course of a trial it will be yet another chance for the ole ready frosty relationship to cool even more practical al-jazeera washington or honest promising to give a crushing response at the u.s. to designate its revolutionary guard as a terrorist group president trump this been promoting a more hawkish strategy on iran accusing it of supporting terrorism and exporting violence across the middle east has to do withdraw u.s. government support for the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal this week it's a matter of he 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
5:05 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 buckram kasumi 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 to meet him. 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 will 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 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
5:06 am
and that its troops in the region would be given the same status in the eyes of the iranian forces as i saw 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 need any new challenges from a position of strength it's posturing on both sides that is putting the obama administration's hard one nuclear deal in jeopardy. travis' wish to withdraw from the nuclear deal has to be endorsed by the u.s. senate this latest target on twitter happens to be the influential republican head of the senate foreign relations committee bob corker says trump is treating the oval office like a reality show and explosive newspaper interview he said he was alarmed and concerned by the president's actions from washington al-jazeera as alan fischer reports personally have 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
5:07 am
office of president like a reality show but he warns 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 but 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 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 candor 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 past remember this is an open exchange from two senior republicans he responded it's
5:08 am
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 hoping and that more senators will really i go to her program has said and really perhaps put some pressure on the white house to tighten their act and really let some control and 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 a 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 they also have

alan fischer i'll just you know washington. officials in the u.s. state of california say ten people had been killed in fast moving wildfires there's been massive evacuations as the fire moves through the state's northern wind producing region two wineries and fifteen hundred homes have been destroyed in that fire claims covered eighty hectares of land in napa county while a second fire burned in neighboring sonoma center is a police department along with our fellow law enforcement officers throughout the county in the region as well as firefighters have been engaged in continual evacuation and rescue efforts those efforts are still ongoing we do still have new fires flaring up within the city meanwhile in southern california a wildfire has spread over more than two thousand hectares and burned at least six buildings authorities in the area are expanding
5:10 am
a back you ation orders and called on residents to heed their warnings or than sixteen hundred people are facing mass trials in nigeria accused of being members of the rebel group boko rom the trials are being held behind closed doors at a military facility rights groups say they're worried about the lack of transparency that's estimated twenty thousand people had been killed and millions displaced during eight years of fighting between government troops and the armed groups john campbell is a former u.s. ambassador to nigeria he says the international community needs to keep a close eye and i'm sure he is 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
5:11 am
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 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.

5:15 am
to be top of mind at the u.n. is trying to trying to contain north korea what's the latest. that's right this is a very important day in the north korean calendar it was a day we show when we were expecting another missile test from north korea that didn't happen in fact there hasn't been a missile test by north korea for nearly a month now the speculation is possibly they are holding off for a week or so when the communist party congress of china gets underway in beijing as a way of upstaging xi jinping we will see but yes this is an important day and preceding this there has been an important gathering of the workers party of career in pyongyang which north korea watches have been. trying to see any shifts in the power structure at the top of the leadership in north korea and interestingly they believe that. the seating arrangement with a country like north korea because it is so opaque at times you are reduced to
5:16 am
seeing who is sitting next to whom but interestingly the two senior figures who are in charge of the party and also the economy were given greater prominence than the person who is in charge of the military so this is being interpreted possibly as a sign of confidence on the part of north korea that it has advanced so far on its military development it can now concentrate on the economy alternatively it could be a sign that its economy is really in trouble because of the sanctions and it really is staving off some sort of collapse as you mentioned there for the bad news for north korea with regard to its sanctions with the prohibition of these ships calling at any point ports of member states some of these vessels that supply waters between north korea and neighboring states have been suspected of getting around the sanctions so this does seem to be a further tightening of the sanctions screw richelle let's talk about where you are right now this military festival south korea tell us more about that about the
5:17 am
display there. this is a military festival it takes place once a year right in the heart of the south korean peninsula it's a chance for the south korean defense forces to show off their hardware and you get a sense talking to people here that it through the current time it does come as a reassurance people tell us they see the north koreans parading their guns their weapons missiles through the central and it's nice seeing their own stuff and they are seeing new and material new hardware this is part of the policy of president of south korea of building up south korea's defense capability not to be so reliant upon the americans he announced big increases in the defense budget over the summer the aim is to try to have the kind of ability to say launch a preemptive strike on their own against a missile site in north korea all is
5:18 am
a way of deterrence now is a liberal he has said since he came to power that he wants dialogue with the north but that must be accompanied he says by keeping up a strong military in south korea very much a policy of walking softly but with a big stick which ok. and south korea thanks rob the japanese broadcaster has shown what it says is the final video of the half brother of north korean leader kim jong un before his death in malaysia and february third . kim jong nam lying on a stretcher in an area next to a lift at kuala lumpur airport he died after the highly toxic v.x. nerve agent was smeared on his face as he waited for a flight to women are currently on trial in malaysia for that killing. nato says it's increasing its presence in southeast europe in the wake of russia's two thousand and fourteen annexation of crimea from ukraine and a multinational force has to be positioned in romania four thousand armenian troops

will be supported by personnel from not nine other nato countries the move comes despite accusations from moscow the nato is trying to encircle it the organization secretary general says the multinational force is evidence of unity do not mirroring what russia does so they're not mirroring rochelle playing by play in the shoulder by shoulder tank but i think we're exposed by exercise we are responding in our way and we do it in the proportionate michoud and defensive way and we have to remember that of course you need to always have full of own forces we have more forces than the nato response force but the whole of the you know with nato is to be so strong is to be so. united and so clear and coherent no messaging that no other city tries to know a potential adversary tries to attack nato pressures increasing on the cattle on government to back down from its planned declaration of independence on tuesday
5:20 am
france's european affairs minister says her country would not recognize the region if it's a seeds from spain meanwhile catalonia is high court has requested extra security from the spanish national police outside the building in case that declaration goes ahead john hall has more from barcelona. no matter which side of the independence 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
5:21 am
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 been guarding the spear court of catalonia for the last twenty four years and there's never been any relation to our service so we don't understand it and we don't like it but it is a judicial destruction 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. ready for any circumstances because we
5:22 am
are already vaccinated against the fanaticism of most of 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 catalonia ptolemy if that were to happen there'd be far more to worry about than the national police guard outside the high court during the whole al jazeera barcelona the images of armed police on the streets of catalonia and the violence during last week's vote echo the dark hair so francisco franco stick tator shit and he said the claim by some catalan nationalists that they were the only ones who suffered under franco ignores history and the vast majority of spaniards outside catalonia are bitterly a plough opposed to any independence declaration lawrence lee reports from central spain. across the her on the river valley you can see madrid away in the distance.
5:23 am
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 of her rama is legendary this incline was called suicide hill by the anti fascist brigades twenty thousand died stopping franco from taking the capital cases was eleven in one thousand thirty seven ninety one his memory is undimmed. my mother and i ran 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. or the local museum you can see how outgunned the n.t. 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
5:24 am
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 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 cats 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 willed it but the claims of the catalan leadership for special sympathy. up in april but here we are sad and
5:25 am
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 it is a reason for unity lawrence lee al-jazeera in the forum of early. british prime minister tree some may says the amount the u.k. will have to pay to exit the e.u. won't be known until the country leaves an address to parliament and they said the final details of britain's withdrawal will be agreed on at the end of the go shopping process and that's march two thousand one thousand ports indicate brussels could demand as much as eighty billion dollars from the u.k. to satisfy commitments made under treaties. hundreds of civilians are fleeing the iraqi town of a wager to escape the ongoing fighting there goes back to iraqi troops and iranian trained shia militia declared victory over i school there on thursday after
