5:16 am
loved ones from aboard began arriving to claim the bodies of the victims kristen salumi has more from new york. lifelong friends from argentina on the trip of a lifetime they were in high spirits as they rode along the hudson river bike path in new york to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their high school graduation just a few kilometers later their ride would put them in the path of a truck driver intent on killing five of the ten men died in tuesday's attack the deadliest in new york since nine eleven. back home in argentina a vigil was held in their honor there were candles and tears which marks such occasions in new york consular officials from the country said the men's families would be arriving over the next few days to claim the bodies of the victims really strong yes suffering a lot they've been friends through all the lives they lost very very very close
5:17 am
friends but they keep fighting and we are with them three others were also killed in the attack a belgian mother of two a new yorker and a man from new jersey prosecutors say twenty nine year old subpool was inspired to carry out the rampage by eisel and found videos from the group on his cell phone. the bike on the roadway where the attack happened have reopened and new yorkers are going about their lives as usual but investigators are still trying to find out if anyone else was involved while the trumpet ministration is looking for ways to ensure an attack like this doesn't happen again. the country's attorney general says guantanamo remains an option for terror suspects terrorists this this administration will use all lawful tools at our disposal including prosecution in article three courts or at guantanamo bay if anyone has any doubt about it they

5:19 am
of legal problems arise when the president himself makes a statement as he has when this case hasn't even gone through the law courts at the moment yeah well the biggest the biggest concern for everyone at this point is whether or not the president's remarks will taint a potential jury pool that would hear the case if it's brought in the federal district court in new york there is a sense that the president has an enormous amount of thorny and power with the bully pulpit that he's given and the fear is of course that jurors will be swayed against the defendant because the president has convicted him and sentenced him to death essentially before we even have all the facts it is quite interesting that the united states is often criticizing other capitals around the world for their human rights abuses for their use of capital punishment but it's been so overtly stated in this particular case is america perhaps looking at its own scenario and
5:20 am
the relationship with capital punishment it seems to have quietened down in recent years. that's right yes since of the year two thousand we've seen a sort of slow decline in the popularity of the death penalty according to public opinion polls we've also seen executions fall the average number of executions went from a high of approaching one hundred in the late ninety's to a few dozen in recent years and we've seen as a result as part of that trend juries refusing to give the death penalty to capital defendants and prosecutors are increasingly reluctant to pursue capital charges there's a bunch of reasons for this some of it comes from the d.n.a. revolution that revealed the convictions of folks in the death sentences in some cases who were later exonerated we also see some states adopting life without
5:21 am
parole they didn't used to have it which appears to give juries some sense of security that the people that they convict won't be paroled at some future point so there's a number of explanations for the decline one of the biggest i think is the disillusionment that many conservatives have with the death penalty in the united states it's imagined as a penalty that's inflicted you know to bring about the ultimate justice but of eight thousand people that have been sentenced to death in the united states since the seventy's just about fifteen hundred or executed and the average time it takes to execute them can can take up to decades so there's a real kind of decline here. if there is this disillusionment with capital punishment and as you say d.n.a. evidence a vest a geisha techniques have taken precedent over the decades we also a good trend since two thousand and seven where six states have abolished the death penalty new york new jersey new mexico illinois connecticut no are allowed is this a trend to just you might say to the west of the country not sort of middle america
5:22 am
you might say over towards the east. so you do yeah you know we see the states that have abolished the death penalty as states that weren't even really using it they had capital statutes on the books they may have had a few people on their death rows but they weren't there execution chambers had had been going on use for very long stretches and in some cases since the death penalty was legally revived in the one nine hundred seventy s. you have a state like texas in which forty percent of all executions since the seventy's occur and so it's hard to imagine a state like texas ever letting go of its death penalty nonetheless we see even in a place like texas decline in prosecutors seeking the death penalty and juries giving it out or for that we will leave it down they were transferred me fascinating talking about the subject i'm sure we'll invite you back when we have more to say about this particular case thank you very much america's top diplomat
5:23 am
who's to visit me and to discuss the rangar crisis secretary state rex tillerson will meet leaders and officials on november the fifteenth pressure is increasing on the white house to impose measures against the government when they put all in the search for a bipartisan group has introduced a bill which would restrict military cooperation until the violence stops while me and miles lead own son suci has visited rakhine state for the first time since the military crackdown forced over six hundred thousand ring go to flee their homes has been facing international criticism for failing to stop what the un is describing as ethnic cleansing from your own gold florence levy reports. this is all signs you first time in rakhine state military offensive began in august accompanied by government officials and prominent business leaders she visited several villages and spoke to people there including both muslims and buddhists. all of us want to
5:24 am
live in peace she reportedly said adding that everyone will have to try hard to achieve that analysts say that's a wider message it's trying to put across i think it's all designed to give the appearance of some kind of stability and a normalcy that simply doesn't exist there and again i think this is her dissolve tree attempt at spin to convince the world that everything so kind and that she's in charge of the situation these are the scenes that would have greeted the myanmar and her aunt to watch house after house destroyed by fire entire villages once home to a hinge of families deserted the government has refuted allegations that its troops are committing ethnic cleansing is defending the military operation as a legitimate counter offensive against a group of fighters it calls a terrorist organization the spokesman for the rakhine state government told al jazeera that. but it's too long to show that the region is now stable. legitimate

spoken to say they don't believe have that it will change things on the ground or that more than six hundred thousand people have crossed into bangladesh it's august and the exodus hasn't stopped largely al jazeera yangon well aid groups are warning of the potential for a major cholera outbreak coming the ripping who fled meanwhile they face poor sanitation and a lack of hygiene facilities in makeshift camps across in bangladesh now the un's refugee chief says it's time for the united nations security council to find a solution to the running a crisis for the playground i spoke to al-jazeera was james bays about his recent visit to the refugee comes in bangladesh. i felt as i felt more than twenty years ago in those camps in eastern congo is the time when rwandans were coming by the hundreds of thousands of contacts is different but the could dish and the physical conditions of this huge out floor in
5:26 am
a very poor area without proper shelter proper sites without enough water without enough sanitation reminded me of those tragic moments in the ninety's when we had to deal with those emergencies we've had a visit now by and so on suchi to iraq own state the first time since this crisis she's been there she's seen things for herself what does she now need to do the refugees that orange refugees have a right to return to their to their to their homes seemed rakhine state but to do that you have to recreate the conditions for them to feel safe to go back and that means. addressing finally the issue of citizenship which is really the fundamental crux of the matter here you've made strong comments on this do you believe that the security council has been strong enough or would you like them to take further action i think the security council to use their jargon
5:27 am
remains seized of the matter and that is already something i don't think they have found us often happens yet the unity necessary to propose and to put forward the the solution you know if you think of syria all the years which we have waited for the security council to fight who have unity on on on resolutions on syria these are this is the difficulty this is why my message to the council today is lack of international cooperation which can happen here at the council favors the. refugee flows or rather prevents solutions to refugee flows from being established and therefore these refugee flows to and so it's time for them to step up the council time to step up and to agree i would say this is the key word will still hold here are the news out

5:31 am
welcome back you're watching the al-jazeera news archives a whole rom of these are our top stories the ousted leader of catalonia has warned of a long period of repression for his people by spain. his staying put in belgium the spanish government is expected to announce a warrant for his arrest on friday into his ministers have been jailed in madrid over the region's independence declaration. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu was in london to mark the centenary of the balfour declaration when britain promised the creation of a jewish homeland in palestine he's marked the occasion with britain's theresa may
5:32 am
the declaration has long been condemned by palestinians. aid groups are warning of the potential for a major cholera outbreak amongst souffle. more than six hundred thousand people have crossed into bangladesh as cox's bazar since august the twenty fifth they fixed poor sanitary and conditions and a lack of hygiene facilities in makeshift camps. venezuelan president nicolas maduro says he plans to renegotiate all. future foreign debt payments with banks and investors it's in response to financial sanctions imposed by the trumpet ministration will come into effect after the state owned oil company makes its next debt repayment the company has sunk into a deep recession following the collapse of oil prices it's been struggling to deal with shortages of basic products such as food and medicine and that's going to be one thought we got to you know you've got to listen only venezuela has always met
5:33 am
its international obligations we have met them in doing old times and during times of low prices we have paid every last cent of our foreign debt sometimes with great sacrifice and great effort we plan to continue meeting our international financial obligations but our intention is to put a stop to the financial persecution by banks and international organizations well it's a day after murder of a new one hundred thousand bodies in a bid to reduce the number of notes people have to carry or by daily goods but the large paper bill is worth less than two and a half u.s. dollars on the black market you also raise minimum wages by thirty percent but in dollar terms it's still lower than the figures for september due to skyrocketing inflation and a depreciating currency well antonia burra is a journalist and latin america analyst joins me now via skype from by having good to have you with us on the program again i mean one wonders how does restructuring its debts help in the current crisis because when you look at the numbers that
5:34 am
venezuela has and it goes as much as eight hundred million dollars in interest repayments to international institutions that i wonder how it's sort of got to get out of this crisis right it hasn't paid those eight hundred million dollars that have already come due and so my principal payment or at least the initial i'm putting those at risk for payment of one point one billion dollars so technically as well we can look out by midnight tonight. is going to be made tomorrow it is so how to put it simply it's. so this is the day of reckoning that everyone knew was going to come but as well it simply does not have enough money to pay its foreign debt and this has very little to do with the american sanctions that's what mcgrew would want people to think the reality is that under charges reduced us or and them under the venezuelan government has indebted itself. astonishingly most of that money has been robbed by the government itself there are norms public works projects that were financed to the tune of billions of dollars in venezuela they
5:35 am
want to know where that money went into the pockets of the government so it is a government that has indebted itself terribly and would have been in in bad shape anyway and then had the oil prices fall which made things even worse so this is a disaster that was long in coming indeed tony as you say if the narrative that the the crack is government is actually saying that a america is the actual problem here i mean how dependent has venezuela been on the financial houses either in the us all in the international market with the way that it's been able to garner they stet. well the way it's been able to survive and pay debts over the last couple of years has been because the chinese and the russians have kept it afloat already to china i the chinese seem reluctant to keep throwing good money after bad so they seem to be more reluctant to help anymore the russians have been there and giving them more money but also the russians aren't going that
5:36 am
well so how long can russia keep doing that and with the problem with the american sanctions is that american financial decisions cannot be if they were so inclined which at this point would would seem to be kind of a crazy thing to do under the circumstances if they were inclined to give in as well more money they can't it's been banned american financial situations have been banned from issuing any new new debt so they cannot come to the united states and ask for four or more money nor will they it will be able to restructure the american debt because. american financial institutions can't negotiate with tariq ali salami the vice president of venezuela who has been named. a drug kingpin by the u.s. treasury so it's against the law to deal with this guy and even if even if they put somebody else who wasn't sanctioned in that position they still would have issues because it any restructuring would involve the issuance of new financial instruments and that's not allowed onto the american sanctions if that's the
5:37 am
scenario as we see it right now very briefly antonio who does venezuela rely on if all these tools of slowly closing by wall. i don't know that we can rely on anyone unless the russians and chinese want to step up to the plate and the problem is that if they do default and international financial institutions assigned to go after them as well assets abroad are going to payments to them as well for oil shipments it's going to create an even more terrible situation inside venezuela or people are starving or medicines that you know the most basic medicines people are dying because of not being able to treat simple diseases well for them and we'll have to leave without any of our thanks for joining us from miami thank you twitter says a customer support employee on the last working day for the company shut down donald trump's account on thursday it was reactivated eleven minutes later the company initially said human error led to the brief closure of the account to says it's
5:38 am
working on steps to prevent such incidents occurring again well the u.s. president has named jerome powell his pick to leave the federal reserve powell is a multi-millionaire who now serves on the central bank's board he was one of five candidates interviewed for the role including current chair janet yellen who finishes in february ellen fisher has more. it is my pleasure and my honor to announce my nomination of jerome powell to be the next chairman of the federal reserve this is the man donald trump wants to steer economic policy in the u.s. if confirmed drone poll over the next chairman of the federal reserve a position many call the second most powerful job in the government inside the federal reserve we understand that monetary policy decisions matter for american families and communities i strongly share that sense of mission and i'm committed to making decisions with objectivity based on the best available evidence in the
5:39 am
long standing tradition of monetary policy independence the decision to replace janet yellen is not a surprise but it is a break with precedent the last three fed chairman more automatically be appointed even by presidents of the opposite political party i think it's very much a political decision it's a very much a desire for president trying to say that he is replacing current fed chair janet yellen because she was appointed by obama and is essentially affiliated with the democratic policies but many people will know the name of the new fed chair not many people will care there is a new fed chair but the position holds enormous power over pensions over savings and over job prospects across the united states the fed steers economic policy in the u.s. while it sets interest rates its job essentially is to maximize employment and stabilize prices janet yellen to control in twenty fourteen the u.s. was through the watch of the financial crisis in a first year g.d.p.
