this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes. i am today starting the process of terminating the diverse lottery. program. donald trump announces plans to crack down on immigration in the wake of the new york truck attack that left eight dead. in order to ban religious teachings of the school needs to read public protests in the northeast african nation of eritrea. russia's president meets his iranian counterpart in tehran the past bond over their common enemy washington. and in sport for the second straight year the world series is going down to a deciding game seven the l.a. dodgers winning game six three want to let you know the series with the houston astros.
begin in washington where the u.s. president is calling for an end to the visa program that allowed the suspect in the new york truck attack to enter the country. describes a photo site both a citizen of his biggest on as an animal and said it was time to get less politically correct white house correspondent can really help it joins us now from washington so kimberly he's going straight in the on this what's the reaction been . well the reaction has been divided mostly long political lines as it's long been in the united states but you're right the president is calling on congress to now begin dismantling the diversity visa program that has long been contentious in the united states that allows fifty thousand to enter the united states and eventually apply for a path to citizenship people originating from countries that typically don't have a large number of immigrants to the united states but the president in speaking
earlier the white house says that he believes that lets in the wrong people he pointed out that the man alleged to have caused the new york city attack in fact led to what the president calls chain migration letting in twenty three family members something he says endangers national security what we have right now is a joke and it's a laughing stock for donald trump the new york attack is justification enough to launch a radical overhaul of america's immigration system you have to go much less politically correct we have to get tough we have to get smart we have to do what's right to protect our citizens. on twitter the u.s. president said liberal immigration policies supported by one of his political foes a top democratic senator set in motion the attack the terrorist came into our country through what is called the diversity visa lottery program
a chuck schumer beauty i want merit based the twenty nine year old whose back national allegedly behind tuesday's attack came to the united states legally in twenty ten with a program designed to expand entry from countries with low rates of immigration to the united states that send him to get more i would certainly consider that yes. he's back instead is a u.s. ally and it's immigrants are considered low risk by the u.s. state department indeed she were with a democratic member of congress who helped initiate the program in the one nine hundred ninety s. but it was signed into law by our republican president george h.w. bush the president ought to stop tweeting and start leading the american people long for leadership not divisiveness not finger pointing not name calling and activists say ending the lottery program proves the trumpet ministration is once again portraying immigrants as
a national security risk president trump is trying to further engender that has been anti immigrant and anti refugee an anti muslim in the very beginning of his campaign did it campaign days and so when he threw this opportunity to promote this agenda he's going to take it still the white house maintains there is a correlation between immigration and what happened in new york and the way to stop it is through stepped up extreme vetting. and certainly that is a sentiment that was acard by the white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders and speaking to reporters earlier she said that it is a fundamental right of this president and the trumpet ministration to advocate for protecting u.s. citizens through any means necessary including extreme vetting and certainly this is something that donald trump not only campaigned on but within days of being elected to office began to try and reform not just immigration but also the number
of refugees that are entered into the united states of course we've seen his travel ban challenged in the courts and also altered a number of times somewhat unsuccessfully i did speak to some of the conservative members of the media here at the white house to get their take on all of this they said that essentially there is a large part of the united states that is applauding what the president is doing in their view feeling that it is long overdue committee how could thank you very much lisa the suspect had been planning the attack for weeks and that he'd been studying instructions on how to carry out such attacks posted by eisel on social media papers on to has the latest on the investigation. shortly after daybreak and crime investigators continue their search of the scene after the worst terrorist attack in new york city since the nine eleven world trade center attacks in two thousand and one while the investigation is still in its early phases authorities said on wednesday the suspect saifullah. a twenty nine year old from his back to stand who

thousand runners and two point five million spectators but the event will go on. new york once every mentioned in his report of five of those killed were tourists from argentina to his abode joins us from the city of. where the men were from so presumably that the news still sinking in. well people here are very much talk about what happened we're talking about with the travel to new york city to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their high school graduation where here right outside the school. the victim that people here i planning to hold a vigil in the next two hours to honor those who were killed forget the both who probably are nine people met. here and had attended the school travel to new york city some of them even help each other out to pay for the tickets we're talking

organization says the protests were sparked by government attempts to close a muslim community school the u.s. embassy in eritrea reported gunfire at several locations yes maher on tuesday so i'm good and is the director of the human rights group release eritrea she says the government's response was very heavy handed i think it's him years that they should that they should take arms against effectively high school students and their parents that's how it started out so i think they're taking it extremely sit in your article is seriously actually to shoot at. children that's what they're doing but also there has been funny responses on twitter there hasn't been any. acknowledgement or any official. statement pertaining to this but on twitter the information minister actually tried to play it down and accuse the people who were actually breaking it into the international news iran's supreme leader has told the
russian president they must step up cooperation to isolate the united states and help stabilize the middle east that to me putin met ayatollah ali khamenei during a one day visit to tehran moscow has stood by tehran after u.s. president donald trump threatened to abandon the iran nuclear deal from tehran saying by striving report. there was little time for ceremony after vladimir putin a little bit into her own he went straight into an hour's long meeting with his counterpart iranian president hassan rouhani. on most other occasions talks between the leaders of these countries would almost be considered routine but with the islamic state of iraq in the levant having been beaten back in syria and iraq and iran expanding influence in the middle east moscow into one are likely to play a key role in shaping future events in the region. we have had a great and fruitful cooperation with iran regarding syria through our
collaboration with turkey the situation in syria is going the right way when it comes to the fight against terrorism. the russian leader also reaffirmed his support for the multi-party nuclear deal with iran for his part the iranian leader hailed russia as an important partner in stabilizing the middle east. they were two leaders speaking in almost perfect harmony iran and russia are developing their strategic guys and they are i believe in their spring. there is much time left of their winter they are just at the beginning as is so often the case having a common enemy can bring countries together russia and iran are no exception the point is that when iran and russia are both on the sanctions of the united states they and they share enemy. one single standing a very powerful enemy the russians and ukrainians are trying to work out similar ways and they are trying to help each other in order to stand against washington
with iran's help russia's for a into syria has been a battlefield success that allowed them to reposition themselves on the world stage for iran russia is a strong ally it feels it can trust. the day before putin's visit a russian company broke ground on two new power plants due to be built at the bush era nuclear facility the project is a ten year commitment both presidents putin and rouhani have said that political dialogue is the next step in syria and whatever a post-war peace looks like it will no doubt be heavily influenced by iran and russia. and as both countries drop a roadmap for future cooperation in the middle east how they deal with serious humanitarian crisis is likely to become an important benchmark of their success is in basra v al-jazeera to her. much more to come here around their news hour including. palestinians parade in effigy about off about for as protests mount the run up to the centenary of his famous declaration. and talk to

protect civilians and civilian infrastructure against attack the secretary john that was very clear as was missing in her statement yesterday and i think the report that the secretary general issued also makes his position clear what we're continuing to see in yemen very unfortunately is the continuing suffering of of the civilian population of men women and children whether it's from attacks or whether it's from a denial and of access to humanitarian aid and this only redoubles our our efforts to find a political solution the palestinian authority says it's planning to sue the british government over the balfour declaration a policy statement that paved the way for the creation of israel protesters in bethlehem you know by the west bank in effigy of. who is britain's foreign secretary nine hundred seventeen that is generally viewed as one of the main catalysts of what's called the nakba the ethnic cleansing of palestine in one
hundred forty eight hundred years bonamy phillips has more. a man of the british establishment in one thousand nine hundred seventeen arthur balfour was foreign secretary his country fighting the first world war on many fronts including in what the british called the holy land against the ottoman turks when balfour issued his fateful declaration his majesty's government view with favor the establishment in palestine of a national home for the jewish people and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non jewish communities in palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by jews in any other country the british government wasn't thinking about when it made that declaration is the simple truth it was thinking about its immediate goals for the
war for the aftermath of war about propaganda about rivalry and also securing for itself a loyal population in palestine the serious can go the route to india the imperial context is terribly important to understand what was happening but then in one thousand nine hundred ninety but for the arab majority balfour's promise however vague was a betrayal in the twenty's and thirty's britain governed palestine as a league of nations mandate and discovered that balfour declaration had not balance the demands of jewish and palestinian nationalism it had exacerbated them. by the time the british left with the foundation of israel in one nine hundred forty eight they were despised by many on both sides with the creation of the state of israel and the palestinian not but that resulted from that the consequences of still with those all today and palestinians do see
a direct link if you talk to post and. israeli occupation today no it's. just market fiftieth year is a direct result of what happened fifty years before that in one thousand nine hundred. gathering in london to mark the centenary. through lines on us and give away territory without consulting the people who live there yes different era but one with profound consequences today many israelis will celebrate this centenary many palestinians will be for britain this is a part anniversary. of the phillips al-jazeera. i don't know about neighborhood
or correction and its ramifications i'm joined now by muslim mastery who lectures at city law school here in london just on the issue of the past you know for having this idea that they would sue the british government over this how realistic prospect is that. this idea was floated in the summer of last year twenty sixteen and i actually don't see that it is a realistic move for a number of reasons one of them is. many of them are actually related to law and legal obstacles whether it's in terms of substantive law so the grounds for which they can bring a claim against government because at the time colonialism was the norm so what cause them was not an issue that's contrary to international law and also in terms of. or so it's not possible to bring it to an international court of justice and i don't think british courts will also accept such a claim and in terms of the declaration itself do you how much do you see it having actual consequences nowadays i mean obviously that it is a historic kind of entity and there's this really emotional you know side to side
of it but in practical terms when legal terms are they run occasionally these days that you can still pin back to the bow of the us resource in practical terms you can see here so this became the british policy for palestine and this policy was adopted by the allies after the end of the first world war and became the policy also the mandate for palestine was the policy of the league of nation and as a result of this policy of for them under the palestine the essentially the british government as a mandatory power sponsored the colonizations on a scale in ization in palestine so it helped facilitated the immigration help build institutions empower these institutions and give them powers and even allow them to for example build an army. and which resulted in the war in one hundred forty eight and the in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of palestinians in the element that sort of never seemed to happen was the protection of rights it was also part
of the about regulation what why do you think that side of it didn't actually materialize in the way that the other side perhaps did with the protection of rights itself is problematic because if you look at the text did not talk about national rights talked about religious rights and civil rights and not actual rights so that means that they did not see the palestinians who were the overwhelming majority about ninety percent of the population as a nation so that even the rights that were knowledge were problematic. but even on that level we can see that the these were not respected and we see that also on the level of the very basic level for example that during the men that there was supposed to be in. elected parliament which never came. to fruition because the. big because of the discussions about the quarters and how many. seats will be allocated to each side so equality which is very basic civil rights was not really
a pelt and what about now when people talk about the idea of perhaps you know apologies for you know historic wrongs and in the past you know governments have apologized for various things that happened in the past do you think those kind of apologies ever make a real difference these apologies make a real difference if there are sincere apologies and meaningful apologies so without any change of policy this apology is going to be meaningless and we can see it for example on the level of the ballot for relationships between israel and the u.k. so the u.k. making an apology when at the same time still has cells weapons to israel so we can see arms trade between the two parties we can see that it's not holding israel accountable to international law violations in in the form for example settlement construction settlement expansion so as long as the u.k. is maintaining business as usual is it will and does not our put pressure on israel too and she would rights violations international organizations this is such an
apology is meaningless as mary thank you very much leave your thoughts your bank of japan. the palestinian hamas movement has handed over administrative control of three border crossings to the palestinian authority it will now control the palestinian side of gaza's border with israel and egypt but the handover may not mean an end to the blockade on gaza as ben smith explains. deconstruction for the reconstruction of palestinian unity in gaza this was until this morning hamas is customs post near the border with israel. al-jazeera was last here almost three weeks ago and this is where i have to have a visa for permission to enter the gaza strip. now it's been taken apart. the. mediators from egypt along with officials from hamas and fatah oversaw the hand-over part of hamas is agreement to return
control of gaza to the palestinian authority this is got to be the end of the division shylock this is the first time to be the end of that the end of the journey because we see everything as was that is it that is what has he said from. the other guys this is the seventh attempt i was doing in reconciliation in gaza in the last ten years but this is the first time that we've seen the physical tearing down of hamas is institutions here and it's that it's giving weary palestinians in gaza a faint glimmer of hope this time of reconciliation might just work. the cost of living should also come down hamas used to levy taxes on goods and food a car could be twenty five percent more expensive here than in the west bank that's now stopped. at this crossing the handover of power will have little practical impact for palestinians because israel let's hardly anyone leave the few that left today were hopeful the conditions might improve. reconciliation is good for the
people in gaza it will help to solve electricity problems leave to siege and solve other problems. it's the border between gaza and egypt that people here are desperate to see reopened construction work is keeping it closed for another two weeks when it's ready i was twenty and will be able to travel freely outside gaza for the first time in ten years bernard smith out a zero garza. u.k. defense secretary michael fallon has resigned following allegations of inappropriate behavior the minister says his previous conduct had four short of the high standards expected from his position fallon apologized earlier this week over an instant fifty years ago in which he made unwanted advances to a journalist repeatedly placing his hand on her knee. and oscar winning us actor dustin hoffman has been accused of sexual harassment against a seventeen year old intern would and thirty years ago it's alleged the hollywood star gripped a teenager on the set of death of a salesman in one nine hundred eighty five eighty

people around the world every year that's more than all other chronic illnesses including hiv malaria and tuberculosis. and joins us now live from the world summit in sao paolo a big turnout in brazil pledging to eliminate viral objections by twenty thirty is that realistic. pledge are they going to do that but they really have brought together representatives health ministers doctors scientists from over one hundred ninety countries they've got the world health organization behind this the world hepatitis alliance so it really is a very big turn and it's only the second conference of its kind and the idea is to bring together all the knowledge and experience of all those countries where hepatitis is prevalent in all sorts of different ways so this conference to try to find a unified way to fight the virus and as you say eliminate it by twenty thirty or twenty thirty it's definitely ambitious but the people we've spoken to here
certainly confident that it can be done if they apply those right measures if they find the funding and also if they bring to bring into the equation a civil society organizations to raise the profile of the disease and to try to diagnose it diagnose it more effectively and bring the money and the and the right methods into play to fight it and how serious a disease is it where is it found. when it's found all over i say prevalence in different ways in different countries. it was first found among the aboriginal australians and it is prevalent among indigenous people certainly in the amazon improve in brazil it's also this different the different strains of hepatitis appetites a c d m b which are very prevalent sometimes among the homosexual community sometimes among drug users it can be found in the insane. contaminated food so the way you contract to be could be very very different in different
countries is the methods used to fight it's a different in different countries the biggest challenge show the people here are saying is that the symptoms are often very difficult to identify you can carry the disease for something like five or six months before you even know you've got it so one of the big challenges is to try to diagnose people to have a screening process in place where that's where that will be adequate in many countries around the world to try to spot the disease which can often lead to liver cancer cirrhosis of the liver before it becomes very very serious but spotting it early is certainly one of the main aims of this conference thank you very much. let's get more now on our top story that truck attack in new york that left eight people dead the f.b.i. says a second person is wanted for questioning in relation to the attack christian to me is in new york for us as a christian what more details have been emerging in the last few minutes. yeah we're just getting word that they are looking for
a second man back national who's described as a person of interest his name is muhammad jail here. and we don't know a lot about him we do know that authorities have been questioning the suspect himself. in his hospital bed where he's recovering from surgery and injuries gunshot wounds to his abdomen and while authorities were not for mil you're with. he was not someone who had been on their radar as a person of interest or a potential threat to the united states they did say that there were possible connections with other people who were on their radar so it's not clear if he is one of those people that they were talking about but they're releasing a wanted poster this evening asking for more information and looking for him for questioning for what happened really you can hear the sirens maybe on the street behind. highway that stretches behind me is where this terrible incident happened where. plowed his truck into pedestrians on a bike path and cyclists on
a bike path the investigation is going full steam ahead we know now from evidence recovered at the scene in the form of a handwritten note in arabic that side pov was. loyal to isolate he did this in the name of ice so we know that he came to the united states illegally in two thousand and ten and authorities here the governor here has said that he was radicalized here in the united states so they are attempting to put all this together talk to this man they're concerned of course about a possible network here in the new york area somewhere in the united states that could strike again although at this point they've been saying they don't have any credible threats that something like that might happen obviously they don't want to take that for granted and they're pursuing every lead to to rule out any further attacks and try to prevent any further attacks which is why we're also seeing such an increased presence of police on the streets of new york and at various landmarks
around the town as well as this ongoing investigation on the street behind me which is still closed down in new jersey where side pov was living and in the hospital room across town where he lays recovering from his injuries and crist in the meantime also charges being filed in court as well. that's right there have officially charged him with terrorism related offenses not a big surprise there this was civics will come out in days forward it'll be interesting to see in the indictment in the documents that come out more history what they found perhaps in terms of will begin to seeing some evidence of what they've gathered from his computers and his social media interactions and things of that sort presented to me thank you very much indeed. it's been six weeks since harken maria devastated the u.s. territory of puerto rico the island's power company is still producing less than
half its normal output and around a fifth of the population is without running water u.s. congress is starting to examine the official response but there are accusations that they only want to hear from those who are positive about the government jabber turns you horse from washington d.c. . six weeks to the day after hurricane maria devastated puerto rico the mayor of san juan was scheduled to be giving testimony at a congressional hearing on the u.s. government's response not holding this press conference in a corridor on capitol hill thank you very much but the hearing was scrapped by republicans once they heard that a democratic congressman had invited the outspoken man to testify why do you think the republicans cancelled today's hearings. i don't know the fact is that they did not the fact is that with that they tried to silence the voice. and the echo of the voices that i represent and they did not accomplish and i think they know it's very
difficult to. have a dialogue look good when actions look really bad so they know they haven't done a good. governor rick how to resale received a very different reception in washington d.c. he was invited to the white house where he thanked donald trump for his leadership the president appeared satisfied what how would you grade the white house. i chair was attending however it was clear that the man whom the president has attacked over twitter wouldn't have agreed in her testimony to congress president trump again lives in a reality that is just of his own doing well i was too water with human excrement and sleeping in a car to say oh in san juan he was playing in mar-a lago so when your life is from that perspective it's not that you don't get it said you don't want to get the congressman who invited mccready's is disappointed. in the witness could tell the
story. involved in it so. we offered him a test but should we draw any conclusions from the fact that what they heard about the invitation they counsel the entire hearing. if they heard. imitation and also all money. there leads me to believe they didn't want to hear what the mayor. but both the congressmen the mare are adamant that this is not over she average homes the older zero washington still to come on the program celebrations as down to their network knocks twenty one years on it despite continued calls by katter's gulf neighbors put to closure. and they didn't pick flame touches down in south korea but organizers hoping its arrival was sparked local interest in the winter games.
