nine eleven museum was there and there are now numerous holocaust museums is not beautiful a museum so countries around the world have walked to memorialize these events that have shaped them by titian is not about the political events that led up to partition it's about the impact on each person who went through it it's really important that we highlight the stories of humanity hopefully one outcome of this would be that we remember our shared humanity and the shared history. catalonia suppose president as a wanted man after spain issues an international warrant for his arrest for rebellion sedition and misuse of funds.
i'm richelle carey this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up fresh and syrian troops launch an offensive to retake all bookham all a border city under eisel control in syria. what is going on on models one of the movies and he will tell you the crisis and no one will help us a desperate plea from hundreds of refugees who say they have been abandoned on manis island. plus u.s. president donald trump is about to get has marathon asia tour will tell you what's on the agenda. and international search and arrest warrant has been issued for the deposed cattle on president carlos pushed him on spanish prosecutors want to investigate him for rebellion and sedition over last month's declaration of independence but the sacked leader has missed two days of court hearings and madrid who's dumon is in brussels where he intends to. any attempt to extradite him to spain but also has said that
he will cooperate with the belgian authorities belgium has twenty four hours to react to the european arrest warrant several of her months aides are also being sought catalans views are split on how the deposed president has handled the crisis . she did giggling live in india then you know i want catalonia to be independent and i think all politicians are doing everything possible so they can help calm the public we are suffering a bit because spanish politicians are playing like a cat chasing a dog but i think collins put him on is not going to let us down you know she. i don't know what beliefs they have but when someone does what he's done and calls for independence and then flees that's not good he's fleeing from the law the president has to fulfill the law if he starts doing something else a lot of it that is going to lose everything. david taylor is following the developments and cross also david what else do we know about the warrant or or
multiple foreign says it may be. this is a procedure taken under the european arrest arrest warrant the documents arrived at the federal prosecutor's office here last night let me explain a bit about that process it's a whole thing that's meant to actually increase the speed and ease of extradition between the e.u. countries before they actually brought this legislation in and it was first came in after the nine eleven attacks in the united states it could take a year maybe two years maybe three years for extradition proceedings take place now under these new procedures it can take up to sixty days and in special circumstances another thirty days on top of that so this means that under this procedure that the arrest warrants will be given to an investigative judge. here in brussels and then push tomorrow and the other four cabinet members will have
twenty four hours to surrender to the the judge appear before him and he will then start investigating the case he will decide whether they're going to be detained in custody whether there was a flight risk whether they have any objections to the arrest warrant so it's a long and complicated procedure but still very much faster than what used to be in place so this allows. for other deposed cabinet ministers to lodge complaints or challenge the arrest warrants on two grounds either their human rights are being abused or something called double criminality and that is essentially the clause which looks at the charges of sedition here in belgium and see if the shape that the same of the charges. sedition in madrid and of course there are very different here so it's plenty of ground for
a challenge on that double criminality clause so that in effect i think is what you'll find the arrest warrants are challenged on and this will give the cabinet ministers and his self time to continue using the whole of the legal process to challenge the arrest warrant and spend time here maybe up to ninety days and which time of course that local regional election on december the twenty first will have taken place but it allows him using the safety and freedom of brussels and the legislation within the courts to carry on with his campaign and to make sure that the independence of catalonia and his campaign can be conducted from here in brussels so an extraordinary situation but we do expect sometime this weekend an investigative judge to be appointed either today or tomorrow and then tomorrow and the cabinet ministers will have to present themselves at the court. wrap up there
in brussels david thank you. a military assault to push out of a border city under its control in syria is underway russian jets are pounding up on the syria iraq border and the tourists or countryside six civilians were killed after residential areas were targeted syrian army's elite forces aided by iran backed shia militia and hezbollah fighters are leading this operation on the ground on friday i saw was pushed out of doors or city the armed groups last major urban stronghold in the country. and top advisor same supreme leader says syrian government forces will advance soon to retake rock a city tehran has been backing syrian president bashar assad on the battleground against opposition fighters and i mean you know the americans by locating in eastern iraq are trying to divide syrians into two parts of they tried to do in iraq they won't succeed in syria we'll witness in the near future the advance of
government and popular forces in syria and east of the euphrates and the liberation of iraq a city go back to iraq in a moment but first let's talk the hotshot a whole bara about all these developments he is and ghazi on top on the turkey syria border saussure as i said we'll get to to that rock in a moment that's obviously important but let's focus right now. and the significance of what's happening there and its location. russia now the russians i continue their strikes against targets now they've been suspecting the top operatives to be basically dead book a man says this talk of pulling out from different parts of the country particularly rock and this is why they are aiming for the hideouts of the top operatives i mean the pows and also fortification posts they say that they've managed to destroy many of them over the last forty eight hours however civilians in that are in the book i might say that dozens of people were killed over the last forty eight hours particularly all the. book come
out of the same time we're seeing now the syrian army moving west from island mayor dean and a military base to words at a book about it about fifty kilometers from the area so we're expecting them to arrive later by tomorrow and that's where the intense fighting could start between the syrian army and i i said is expected to put up fierce resistance there for different reasons is that it's now squeezed on both sides of iraq and syria to it last it's a border crossing going to come out three has nowhere to go with the side to retreat further east for example it's a vast desert area and it's a good movement will be on the spot intercepted by the russians and by the about it goes so the options for ice are really very little for them so i think they just continue the fight until the. combat ok so let's go to rocket now or there is talk of the syrian government trying to retake that city and hosh and that seems to have
a lot of different parties a lot of different groups on a collision course. absolutely the implication is that will be very different for the simple reason is that you have the runs and controls the city of iraq is backed by the united states of america the syrian army is backed by russia and the syrian army made this quite clear over the last two weeks that it is determined once is. to move north towards the law and to control its goal the way towards that house like which is a stronghold of the kurdish taxes and later set its eyes on the east and also in the province of idlib which is the last remaining stronghold for the syrian opposition in syria if that happens if the syrian army moves back by the russians towards. what will be the next step for the americans are they going to abandon that in the region which is the s.d.f. or are they going to try to work out
a reconciliation and so you know i think the american are hoping to see a permanent solution to the crisis in syria but the s.d.f. says that it would like to continue its push to create a state of which this is something that would create new political dynamics in the region if the russians and the americans a further trapped into this conflict that could have. consequences to syria and to the region. the developments there joining us from gaza thank you. more than six hundred refugees have made a desperate plea to new zealand's prime minister ahead of her meeting with her australian counterpart for years a new zealand had offered to resettle some of the refugees australia locked in its offshore prison camps and an asylum camp was decommissioned on tuesday but hundreds of refugees there they're refusing to lean they cuz they fear being attacked by locals. we are pleading the international community to discuss what is going on on

that my teaching english we have to start right at the beginning with the phonetic alphabet and just the sounds of the language and. they come here to divonne avenues some call it the most diverse street in america landing place of successive wave of immigrant to chicago from eastern europeans to orthodox jews pakistanis indians and now they're all hinges. here they form their own community where they share their own store and their own worries i'm worrying about the us have to know so i buy the food because the government not allowed any aid international or united nation it is a fear for those they left behind the really injured here comfort themselves in knowing it least they've brought some of them to safety john hendren al-jazeera chicago this president has visited pearl harbor during a stopover in hawaii before him marks on his first official visit to asia pearl

looming over the visit is trump's brazen rhetoric with north korean leader kim jong un trumps escalated the crisis and raise fears even the smallest miscalculation on both sides could lead to war unlike the trip in the spring by u.s. vice president pence white house officials say trump will not visit the south korean side of the demilitarized zone overlooking north korea instead he'll visit u.s. soldiers at nearby camp humphries trumps meeting with leader moon could be tense trumps inflame the relationship by suggesting south korea alone pay for the u.s. missile defense system in itself. well moon has reminded trump there can be no military action against north korea without consent their money manipulators their currency manipulators trumps china visit may be equally complicated on the campaign
trail trump bash china's a currency manipulator stealing american jobs officials say he'll make a similar argument over unfair trade practices well in beijing private enterprise and open markets is the best model to increase prosperity throughout the region and despite trying to positive relationship with japan's leader. there is concern in that. a nation that trumps tough talk on north korea continues to put the country and wider region at risk those fears are casting a shadow over trump's attendance at two major economic summit in vietnam and also in the philippines overall it is i have to get genda for a region that remains wary given donald trump's consistently unpredictable diplomatic style can really help at al-jazeera washington. liberia's presidential election runoff has been delayed as the supreme court investigate allegations of
