11:04 pm
of seats in the lower house since i will say this election victory as a strong mandate to deliver on his reform agenda and act on his lifelong mission to revise japan's pacifist constitution and give the country's self-defense forces a more active role but the issue is controversial and voters are divided over constitutional change with the escalating nuclear threat from north korea will be hoping it's enough to convince voters to back its campaign to allow japan's military to respond to direct threats but any change to the constitution requires approval first by two thirds of both the upper and lower house and then a public referendum sarah clarke al-jazeera tokyo. human rights groups in france denouncing an upcoming visit to paris by the egyptian president they say france shouldn't support president politically or sell weapons to egypt activists say torture repression and unfair trials against civil rights advocates and

11:07 pm
a spirit of friendship and cooperation we can and will deliver the best possible outcome that works for all our people and that belief was shared by other european leaders mr speaker we are going to leave the european union in march two thousand and nine to. delivering on the democratic will of the british people. of course we are preparing for every eventuality to ensure we leave in a smooth and orderly way but i am confident that we will be able to negotiate a new deep and special partnership between a sovereign united kingdom and our friends in the european union that is my mission that is this government's mission and i commend this statement to the house. also here in the u.k. it's going to be mandatory for doctors to check patients immigration status before offering them free health care the new rules mean some migrants and visitors to england will be charged up front for treatment the government says it's to recover vital funds but critics say it might prevent vulnerable people from getting the
11:08 pm
treatment they need barnaby phillips explains. right they say they trade to cure diseases check immigration documents retour is a doctor who thinks the new rules requiring workers to make sure patients are eligible for free care workable even if. she's based in a part of london with high immigration although most europeans and people needing emergency care or with infectious diseases don't have to pay she worries the new rules may prevent the sick from coming forward. then the conditions become less and then the. treatment which. will be much more than the charges would have initially been. in theory the n.h.s. has already been charging naam eligible foreigners the difference now it's asking
11:09 pm
for money up front but how does that work in practice this indian woman told me she's been repeatedly asked for identification documents in n.h.s. hospitals in recent months it's actually not. immigration status it's just that. and has a serious impact on. whether or not i decide to go in for treatment sometimes. being racially profiled yeah definitely. the. pressure on the british. funding as it struggles to cope with the growing ageing population. is. that the government did not grant us an interview but provided this statement. it says that overseas visitors are welcome to use the n.h.s.
11:10 pm
which is paid for by british taxpayers and that visitors must also make a fair contribution if we decide to spend the money on providing a national health service there's actually an international health service for the whole world then that's going to mean british citizens are going to have less to deal with cancer to deal with long term conditions to deal with elderly care so there's always going to be a cost. but how much money will the new regulations raise the protesters and even the government projections say they'll be worth a very small percentage of the overall n.h.s. bitit barnaby phillips al-jazeera. much want to bring you still as iran seizure of illegal drugs reaches four hundred tons since march a week sam in the country's growing opiate addiction. and later ins for a wrong time proves costly for the leaders at the venice marathon.

11:15 pm
more education about the dangers of drug use we don't have any discourse we don't have any bars we don't have any such a discard nothing and those people the young generation they think that this is illegal so it is good what they were at the government said that it's in a godly thing that it's good that they are just you know make it illegal like drinking like anything like girls you know like boyfriend and girlfriend it's illegal here whether it's illegal it's given you know that that we are interesting to use that to see that some lawmakers acknowledge that strict rules aren't enough to stop people from using drugs but in safe havens like this perhaps addicts can learn they don't need drugs to get high zain but al-jazeera to her on. the u.s. city of las vegas is looking to change its motto after a deadly mass shooting three weeks ago city tourism officials believe that what happens here stays here just doesn't feel appropriate anymore meanwhile a unique art exhibition across the country in new jersey is trying to take

a new approach to america's history of gun violence elizondo reports talked panic at a concert last vegas as a man kills fifty seven people in the worst mass shooting united states in modern times the gunman on forty seven guns and had twenty three of those firearms with him at the time of the shooting not states of america has a obsessive. attraction and love for guns in a way that other countries just don't have and that's why she helped put together an exhibit at one church to help raise awareness to gun violence through art and in this piece tissues on each piece of tissue a name and age of someone killed by gun violence in the area so this is a tissue for a lock rows read greek is they someone was murdered the day before the exhibit

11:18 pm
a change that we simply can't go on the way we've been going on the art exhibit is called loving arms of course it's a play on words arms being what we used to hug or embrace somebody but also arms being weapons as well the message here that this world needs more love and less violence one church where trying to indigo unveilings has become an art form for peace gabriel's onto al-jazeera jersey city. let's get andy now he has all this for thank you so much mary and all the rivalry between cristiana run our legal mess in neymar is about to get personal thief is annual awards ceremony just kicking off in london ronaldo won the individual prize for player of the year at the last event also up for grabs of the women's player of the year and we'll find out who is the best coach according to a panel of players and managers fans and journalists real madrid's isn't it enough that dan max alegria eventis and chelsea's antonio conseco on that short list. i

11:27 pm
a day of diplomacy for u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson as he makes a surprise trip to afghanistan and iraq. i'm jean macdonald this is al jazeera live from london also coming up one hundred and twenty eight people are killed by myself in western syria while in east and go to children are dying of hunger as a five year government siege continues. bangladesh calls on me in march to allow a million what hands are refugees to return home as international donors pledged three hundred thirty five million dollars in aid. and as iran seizure of illegal drugs reaches four hundred tums since march we examine the country's growing opiate addiction.
11:28 pm
it's very warm welcome to the program u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has made an unannounced visit to iraq's capital baghdad is due to hold a second meeting with the iraqi prime minister hi to all a body who has criticized to listeners call for arabian militias to leave iraq in comments made in riyadh on sunday a body says the arabian backed popular mobilization forces which have helped baghdad defeat eisel consist solely in iraq a national. and iran's foreign minister has waded into the debates aloha my job as a reef has tweeted exactly what country is it that iraq is who rose up to defend their homes against eisel would turn to he says it's shameful us foreign policy dictated by pixel dollars. earlier to listen made an unannounced visit to afghanistan meeting president gandhi and chief executive of dilla at the bag airbase to listen says the u.s. is committed to keeping its presence in country until its more stable. president
11:29 pm
made it clear that you know we're here to stay until we can secure a process of reconciliation and peace it's not an unlimited commitment he's also made it clear it's not a blank check commitment that's why it is a conditions based commitment but i think if if you consider the current situation in afghanistan and we were talking about this a few minutes ago and you look a few years in the past what circumstances or afghanistan has come quite a distance already in terms of creating a much more vibrant. population much more vibrant government. well stephanie decker is in our bill in northern iraq and joins us live now hi there stephanie so what is it exactly that to listen once to get out of the east on a nice visit. i think we'll be talking about two main issues and you know it's the second the second time sorry in two days that is meeting with the iraqi
11:30 pm
prime minister so the fact that he's made this trip to baghdad off her being in afghanistan quite a long day for the secretary of state goes to show that you know they're treating this with a lot of importance particularly the events of the last week which are unfolding here which sure rocky forces together with the hash oil shot with a shia militia push kurdish peshmerga forces out of about twelve thousand kilometer squares of territory those disputed territories now we know that the americans want the two sides to sit down to resolve this through dialogue and also they've made it very clear until or some actually said this in doha yesterday that this by no means meant that they were a result of the fact that the federal forces are back in control of those areas that they weren't since two thousand and fourteen and this has to do with the iraqi constitution so there are things that need to be addressed that need to be done with a lot to talk about and just briefly also as you mentioned the issue of those shia militia these are the popular mobilization forces there formed in two thousand and fourteen to help fight eisel well he's now saying that fight is largely done
11:31 pm
they're going to have to be you know taken under the broad of the iraqi army that is complicated so i think there will be difficult talks ahead and steph how important given the current iraq u.s. tensions is it that these tensions are put to one side and that relationship building continues. i think the relationship is still pretty much on track at the moment these are two allies that have worked incredibly closely together over the last couple of years to push actively on the battlefield you know we saw them in mosul started very much hand in hand with the iraqi army with the peshmerga forces which is of course why. the irony that you now have two forces the peshmerga the iraqis pointing their guns at each other but i think they're going to be key to trying to resolve these issues perhaps pushing forward some form of you know timeframe to resolve the issue of disputed territories that should have been resolved ten years ago under the iraqi constitution that's what the kurds here will tell you is a real issue they don't want to you know they say they had all this time this is
11:32 pm
why we went ahead with the referendum and then the the issue of those paramilitary you know shia militias that do have some form of a formal structure these days iraqi prime minister did that you know they are paid by the government they fall into the cauldron chief which is that but they are iranian backed so there is a separate command structure with iranian leaders and shia clerics that the u.s. will want to curtail because also big part of to listen this trip here has been to saudi arabia will be to try and stem iran's influence in the region it's an influence that has been growing stephanie dechen there joining us live from erbil stephanie thank you. to listen is also made to me a walkie prison food must occurred in an apartment reaffirmation of u.s. support for a unified iraq following the controversial kurdish referendum last month he's called on the iraqi government and kurdistan region to resolve the conflict through dialogue meanwhile iraq's interior minister is calling on the kurds who left
11:33 pm
joining us weeks takeover to go home. and hard look the communication between baghdad and erbil has not been severed we are not living in two states it is only one step it we could have different views but talks are underway any issue can be resolved there is no issue that is beyond resolution so long as there is a basis for negotiations and intentions are genuine. i saw has been accused of carrying out a massacre in the syrian town of all cutting a town that witnesses say the group conducted a revenge campaign killing at least one hundred twenty people before the times capture by government forces the syrian observatory for human rights says the killings in central holmes took place over three week period i sleep queue's the civilians of collaborating with the syrian regime the troops we captured the time from i saw today how do we get. the attack just like animals they came to kill us
