embassy in ankara and a warrant issued for another the u.s. took the unusual step of saying they would stop issuing visas for some turkish nationals traveling to america the first explanation was posted by the u.s. ambassador to turkey on twitter we don't know if these arrests are singular offense or if we should expect other turkish staff members to be arrested turkey quickly followed suit with similar measures but president rich a type one said he did it reluctantly and on kind of this is a very sad decision and the ambassador has taken a decision and started implementing it so it's a source of sadness. this is just the latest in a growing list of diplomatic back and forth the relationship between these two nato allies started souring during the syrian civil war turkey upset the us didn't do enough against the assad government even angrier when the u.s. 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 of aid sanctions against iran it was
a matter of wanting it back then 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 political hang al-jazeera washington. moving on to other news now and iran is promising a crushing response if the u.s. designates and the revolution we've got as a terrorist group president trump has been promoting a more hawkish strategy on iran accusing it of supporting terrorism and exporting violence across the middle east and to withdraw u.s. government support for the two thousand and fifteen u.k. a deal this week say invest has more. in the last few days the headlines here have been dominated by defiant rhetoric from iranian leaders who say that any actions by 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 backroom 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. 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 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 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 won nuclear deal in jeopardy. about four u.s. republican senator bob corker has issued more criticism of president donald trump and to view with the new york times the chair of the senate foreign relations committee who set to retire said trump is trading the presidency like a reality t.v. show and making reckless threats that could stay the country into world war three the comments follow a spat on sunday between the two men and which trump claimed senator corker had bad temper one endorsement ahead of a congressional election and his state of tennessee. officials in the u.s. state of california say ten people have been killed and fast moving wildfire has
there been a massive evacuations as the fires move through the state's northern wine producing region to one reason fifteen hundred homes have been destroyed in the blaze flames covered eighty hectares of land and napa county while the second father and a 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 well meanwhile in southern california a wildfire has spread over more than two thousand hectares and burned least six buildings authorities in the area are expanding evacuation orders and called on residents to hate their warnings. more than one thousand six hundred people are facing mass trials in nigeria accused of being members of the rebel group boko
haram the trials are being held behind closed doors at a military facility rights groups say there why about the lack of transparency it's estimated twenty thousand people have been killed and millions displaced you in eighty years of fighting between government troops and the. well john campbell is a former u.s. ambassador to nigeria he says the international community needs to keep a close eye on line derrius 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 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 some odd ways president robert mugabe has a shelf of his cabinet and a bit to boast of party support for his wife grace gobby resigned reassigned rather
ten members of his cabinet and five the finance minister is a high profile contender for the party leadership the evening zanu p.f. is divided over who should succeed mugabe he intends to stand in the election next year at the age of ninety four. but these twelve one hundred refugees have drowned after their boat capsized on its way from myanmar to bond and ten of the dead were children eight people were rescued as the third and sudden to four hundred refugees drowning since the latest crackdown by the myanmar on the train began in august hundreds of thousands from the muslim my logic would have been forced to leave rakhine state mohammed has moved from cox's bazaar and bank with a. with the news that yet another boat full of refugees capsized while it was attempting to cross from me and more to bangladesh comes another reminder of the magnitude of this refugee crisis and the fact that remains are refugees are still trying to flee and come into bangladesh this area you see behind me these
people that are here they all crossed by foot into bangladesh just earlier today we've heard horrific tales from them about what happened to them was a woman over there who told us that her husband was executed in the past week by me and mars military there's a young boy over here showed us a wound on his leg said he got that when me and my army shot at the group that he was with very sad stories more reminders that this exodus doesn't seem as though it will in anytime soon that's one reason why aid groups humanitarian organizations are so concerned about the plight of these people japanese broadcaster has shown what it says is the final video of the hot father of north korean leader kim jong un before his death in malaysia in february for t.v. shows kim jong nam lying on a stretcher at an area next to a left at kuala lumpur airport he died after the highly toxic v.x. nerve agent was made on his face as he waited for a flight to him and

hardware that is increasing in sophistication and also in the type of new materials that they are getting this is the policy of president moon j. in increasing the defense budget for the largest increase for several decades so it is now two point nine percent of the g.d.p. the aim is that south korea will gain the kind of military self-reliance that it can launch if it has to for example preemptive strikes against north korean missile missile bases instead of relying upon the united states forces it is all the way of boosting its own sense of deterrence giving them the build up of the north korean nuclear threat moon jay is the president is a liberal he says he wants dialogue with the north but since coming to power he has stressed that it has to go hand in hand with a stronger military very much
a case of walking softly but with a big stick. british promise in terms of may says the amount the u.k. will have to pay to exit the e.u. what p. noy told the country he lives in an address to parliament may said the final details of russian's withdrawal will be acquainted at the end of the in the go shaking process and march two thousand and nineteen reports indicate that brussels could demand as much as eighty billion dollars from the u.k. to satisfy commitments made under treaties. pressure is increasing on the card along government to back down from its planned declaration of independence on tuesday the region's high court has requested extra security from the spanish national police outside the building in case the declaration goes ahead the vast majority of spaniards outside catalonia are basically opposed to any independence declaration as long as the reports from central spain many believe the car long nationalists are ignoring the country's border history 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 of the 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 go 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 catalans they say are using the campaign for independence as a historical crutch to cover up their own sense of entitlement and victim hood 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 will do it but the claims of the council are leadership for special sympathy. up in april but i feel 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 it is a reason for unity lawrence lee al-jazeera in the forum a valley. still ahead on the vote down on climate change denial. ending and i bomb. emissions from coal fired power and. cleared from taking a look at what's being done to bring the former i somehow back to life.

air act and was put in place by president barack obama to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by twenty thirty it sets emission targets for each state in line with the amount of energy they use and gives them flexibility in meeting those targets but the plan has been a sore point with the fossil fuel industry president trump a climate change skeptic made a campaign promise to revive u.s. coal and support other fossil fuels vowing to scrap the clean power plant and withdraw from the paris climate accord pruitt was the ideal u.s. administrator to help him carry out that mission as attorney general of oklahoma pruitt joined attorney generals from two dozen states in a suit challenging the obama administration's efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions it's unclear if pruitt will replace the clean power plan with another rule the e.p.a. is likely to face legal challenges from environmental groups over the repeal and one such group the natural resources defense council says it's already
