1:01 pm
hello i'm sam is a than this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes tough talk from saudi arabia as it accuses iran of direct military aggression and takes aim at lebanon. north korea's take six test of a nuclear device and its missiles launchers are a threat not only to the people of south korea but to the people all across our globe donald trump warns the u.s. is prepared to use my attraction against north korea but opens the door for talks. gunman stormed a television station in afghanistan's capital and take hostages where live from kabul with the off them off. the vice president has consistently. and persistently. exhibited traits. of history. zimbabwe's president
1:02 pm
is number two the latest twist in a succession battle. saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed is accusing iran of what could be an act of war by supplying both the rebels in the yemen with a missile fired towards riyadh it's the latest development amid escalating tensions in the region saudi air defense forces you remember intercepted that ballistic missile on saturday although the houthi rebels claimed responsibility how the leaders say the weapon was supplied by iran now the iran bank who sees a warning saudi and u.a.e. airports are within their firing range and could be the next targets saudi arabia is also taking aim at lebanon its warning that it will be dealt with as government has declared war against riyadh lebanon's prime minister saddle how do you blame
1:03 pm
the iran and hezbollah of destabilizing the region how do you see who resigned while and beyond on saturday has arrived in abu dhabi for talks. so to hold him now joins us joins us rather live from beirut so i guess those words from riyadh must be raising concerns in beirut. no doubt really strong language some analysts are even saying that to these statements by saudi officials a number of saudi officials are unprecedented and they're analyzing this as a declaration of war against eleven on telling levanon lebanese leaders need to choose between peace or terror in other words telling them not to cooperate or deal with hezbollah now hezbollah of course is a party that has an armed wing its arms has always been a source of contention in lebanon its forces are fighting alongside the syrian president bashar assad but hezbollah is also a political party it has members in government it has members in parliament it has
1:04 pm
allies it has supporters here so telling lebanese leaders to choose between a terror and and peace really so people are concerned and some statements are even saying there are those who will stop hezbollah and make them return to the caves of southern lebanon so very tough rhetoric in fact threatening levanon but not saying or stopping short of saying what action they are going to take it is clear that saudi arabia is not going to accept hezbollah in the government but what else are they going to ask for this crisis to be resolved are they going to ask for hezbollah as arms to be disarmed for as well as to be this armed that is definitely not going to happen and hezbollah is not going to accept that it's not exactly a best time if there ever was one to be leaderless you've got a prime minister has resigned a broad who's running the show right now in lebanon to go through the political process. well the president has been holding meetings over the past two days ever since the shop resignation mainly with the heads of the difference and thirty agencies in the country as well as the army to make sure that the security
1:05 pm
situation remains stable people are worried as well about the economy what effect this will have on the economy the president also holding talks with business leaders and the economy. minister but at the end of the day we heard from the president and we heard from the speaker of parliament they are not considering the resignation formal not that yet they won't accept it until they hear from the prime minister himself they want to understand the circumstances behind this resignation so this whole constitutional process is now on hold because what is supposed to happen when a prime minister resigns and there's a political vacuum the president needs to hold parliamentary consultations and those consultations he will then appoint a prime minister but who will replace saddam he has to be a son a muslim which then the muslim in lebanon what figure will be accepted by all sides who need a consensual figure in order for this crisis to be resolved a national unity government but clearly the political price and that has now worsened and people are worried that it's going to be a prolonged political paralysis in the country all right we'll leave it there for
1:06 pm
now good stuff then to hold that in beirut omaha nabatean is an iranian analyst at middle east oil he joins us now from all good to have you with us so if you look at the some of the saudi statements that have been coming out of an act of aggression an act of war warnings against lebanon warnings against iran has iran deliberately escalated this conflict particularly by providing the hoa fees with ballistic missiles as the saudi narrative goes that can target riyadh. well i think this crisis is more reflective of the internal situation in saudi arabia than the country's external environment the crown prince mohammed bin man has clearly gone on the night of the long knives he's conducted extensive purges apparently with the blessing of some sections of the u.s. administration and i think this is more reflective of their internal situation in terms of the missiles being fired look i mean the yemenis they have very
1:07 pm
substantial stockpiles of ballistic missiles dating back from the one nine hundred eighty s. and it's very easy for them to modify these missiles with a view to hitting targets deep inside saudi arabia and contrary to what saudi military officials have been saying in the past forty eight hours or so this was not a long range ballistic missile this was a mid range ballistic missiles that had been modified and also why did the way they get those missiles prompted. well these missiles as i said some of them date back from the one nine hundred eighty s. some of them were supplied by iraq in the mid to late one nine hundred eighty s. and and some by the former soviet union yemen is awash with weapons but none of them came from iran. well i mean that that is obviously subject to some dispute i mean weapons may be getting in but i think you can't you can't categorically say yes the saudis are saying that this ballistic missile originated from iran there's no evidence for that. at the same time we've got the resignation of lebanon's prime minister happening in the saudi capital well we had
1:08 pm
missiles flying towards riyadh and now these strong saudi warnings i mean this sequence of events are not a coincidence are they. well this appears to be an artificial scenario and it's being engineered by the saudi leadership i mean look when saddle how do you believe left beirut following his meeting with. the the chief consultant to the reigning leader on the un external policy here to be in buoyant mood by by all credible accounts it's only when he was in saudi arabia that he appears to been forced into that position and also bear in mind that all the all the credible institutions in lebanon including the security services have come out and said there's absolutely no evidence that there was a plot against his life do you think i mean what do you think the next alister might be you expect a push against hezbollah to marginalize has bely in lebanon and how might this from
1:09 pm
the saudi perspective a move to contain iranian influence next well i think it is very difficult to say especially in view of the volatility of the current saudi leadership i mean mohamed man he's undertaken a very risky venture because the house of saud historically is achieved relative stability because it had multiple centers of power mohamed pencil man appears to want to make that system much more united if you will and he's moving against different power centers including the man who led the national guard. and so there's a large degree of volatility in there they've certainly taken a much more aggressive line in foreign policy since twenty fifteen but i think it will be very difficult for the saudi leadership to make any moves against hezbollah in lebanon simply because their policy is still not yet fully aligned with the israeli or the american ones it's only the israelis who can make real trouble
1:10 pm
eleven on and as far as we know so far all the indications are that the israelis are shying away from a large scale conflict in lebanon or i will leave it for now good to get your analysis on that. storm the television station in afghanistan they took over the building after an explosion in the capital kabul a security guard died the siege is now over and the station has risk you broadcast correspondent jennifer glass joins us live from kabul so the first obvious one whodunit. that's right so i mean we know that on of the attack happened just before noon today the head of the news director of the agency says that the guard the attackers were dressed as police throwing grenades at their guards killing one of the guards before storming into that t.v. station and firing weapons that siege went on for a couple of hours sammy and during that time the t.v. station simply had a slate up. they went off the air raid no no real programming going on
1:11 pm
a lot of the people who worked at the station employees of the stations jumped out of the second or third floor in order to escape those gunmen after they heard that first explosion now we're hearing from the governor of balck in the north calling this latest attack saying that this these are these are these attackers are trying to dampen freedom of expression the stations news director said that this will not stop them they will continue to work bravely he said to support freedom of expression here in afghanistan and the first thing they did once the siege ended was send their camera people in and get the station back on the air taliban have said they had not behind this attack do we know who is. we're not exactly sure there are reports that the islamic state has claimed responsibility through its media agency but has provided no proof
1:12 pm
a lot of times we'll see videos of the suicide attackers are of the attackers. as some sort of proof so islamic state claiming responsibility but offering no evidence of that attack they of course have claimed responsibilities for other attacks here in kabul but sami you know it's dangerous to afghan journalists is nothing new here last year thirteen journalists at least thirteen journalists died here in afghanistan making it the second most dangerous place in the world to be a journalist behind syria last year this year at least two journalists have died i know that a number of t.v. stations have been under threat but the head of this t.v. station said they hadn't received any threats before this attack happened all right jennifer glass thanks for that. trump says the u.s. and its allies are prepared to use military action against north korea but he's open to negotiations to end on the nuclear weapons program trump has been meeting south korea's leader in seoul so the two men were on the same page on north korea
1:13 pm
he's on his second leg of his maiden tour of asia. kathy novak joins us now from seoul so we know the two leaders have been meeting what's coming out of that meeting. well as expected the focus was very much on the threat coming out of north korea and the need for south korea and the united states to work together to tackle that threat donald trump saying that this is a worldwide problem that needs a worldwide solution then president moon was talking about bolstering south korea's capability to defend itself the two years finalize an earlier deal that would look for strictures on the payload for south korean missile donald trump also said that he's in negotiation and with south korea on the kerchiefs of billions of dollars worth of u.s. military equipment of course that donald trump happy because he says that will work towards alleviating the trade deficit between the two countries he also said that
1:14 pm
he sees some progress when it comes to the north korean problem and that china's president xi jinping is doing a lot to help now you wouldn't be drawn directly on the possibility of direct talks with north korea in the past he had suggested that that might be a waste of time and also president moon who has in the past pushed for dialogue engagement said again that right now the circumstances do not lend themselves to allowing for dialogue but that he hopes that further pressure and sanctions would bring north korea to the negotiating table here's a little of what both of us had to say all nations must implement u.n. security council regulations and see straight and business entirely with north korea it is unacceptable that nations would help to arm and finance this increasingly dangerous regime as we work together to resolve this problem using all
1:15 pm
available tools short of military action. the united states stands prepared to defend itself and its allies using the full range of our unmatched military capabilities if need be but. the united states has strong sanctions on north korea and i think it will have an effective impact and with china joining the united states it will bring force to the sanctions on north korea with all these international diplomatic policies i think when there are changes being made it will bring north korea back to the negotiating table b.j. kim is in the junks professor of foreign studies that one could get inverse to and the former south korean diplomat joins us now live from seoul good to have you with us first of all how do you think of the comments by president trump will go down in seoul is that what people wanted to hear there so far so good i thought what is
1:16 pm
there today who are quiet. you know for the people who've been bracing for the prizes and words so far he has mentioned a few of the your best politics but some some purpose statement of his. you know the press press gathering but the however overall it's been in many of the through the worse for the body a source or part in terms of making you know overall keeping the feelings here kind of his that. is from succeeding in convincing some of those asian allies to shoulder more of the security cost and responsibility in the region something which he talked immensely about at least when he was on the campaign trail. right security cause you know one of the important part of this trip today was his visit to the camp for his then campus was built ninety percent korean contribution about close to nine billion
1:17 pm
u.s. dollars for building it and he expressed his surprise and a strong impression about how great this base is it which is in fact largest us overseas it's big and he expressed his all there and korean side i guess so we noticed there's been a feeling of hope that he would go a little bit easy on his demand on a cost sharing on military presence here after seeing how much korea has contributed to building this came camp humphries all right b.j. came thanks for analysis on that we're going to continue to talk about this and let's get you some live pictures coming out of the south korean capital seoul what we're looking at. pictures while some people may be welcoming the sort of message that came from the u.s. president and. expressing that so far so good sentiment we just heard from.
1:18 pm
obviously that's not universal some people in the south korean capital that we're looking at right now not happy with the u.s. president's trip and message to so. plenty more still ahead on the news hour including with climate change causing more floods and storms the netherlands is now showing how prevention is better than cure. i'm just feeling i'm saving nine lives right now so. yes i think anybody. think about it. so doggy escort service passengers take stray dogs from mexico to new homes four thousand kilometers away and find out why international football friendly's may become a thing of the past. a supreme court in papua new guinea has rejected an application to restore

1:21 pm
to strengthen their defenses they're turning to the netherlands for answers lawlessly reports from rotterdam. a city which at its lowest lies six metres below sea level has for centuries had to work out how to keep the people dry if you didn't know how to do it nowadays you wouldn't even notice the wall at the end of the bridge is actually levied against flooding the road raised above the level of the houses to keep the water from the other side the spaces they used as basketball courts and open air theaters but there are also huge basins to capture rainwater the thing they figured out is how to make flood defenses work for cities we must add quality to the city. and that can be done in an integrated way so you can choose for a concrete wall but you also can choose for. a landscape in the shape of a levee with on top of it and that's and that's an end in quality but it's also

creating more flexibility. the netherlands was forced to address is geographic weakness in the one nine hundred fifty three when a huge storm pushed the north sea inland nearly two thousand people died they realized they had to do something enormous to protect the entire dutch seaboard this giant barrier is the first line of defense for rotterdam the dutch are full forty years after the great flood of nine hundred fifty three to complete the infrastructure in. sorry to keep the north sea out of the netherlands and of course . every day some of the projects are going on of course it's all underpinned by a belief that you have to work with the war rather than against it and of course the political will to make it happen. a stream in rotterdam the chinese are visiting being shown a pretty open space it's actually a flood place and they're impressed and want to copy it. it's carefully designed we could use some of it in china we have already implemented some and we are hoping to work with the netherlands much more they are the only ones there the amsterdam was
1:23 pm
a conference thirty global mayors listening to the mayor of rotterdam tell them spending on prevention is far cheaper than having to evacuate their cities but if you do the math and you see the amount of money that you pay aftermath in the aftermath to repair the damage there will be i think more money than we spent at prevention. building a resilient system of water defense. in a year when hoost and found itself under water in the us president disavowed the powers claim it's a cold the overarching message is this even if you don't believe in climate change think of flood defense as a business opportunity and when we do. we will die but the moment we embrace the opportunities also climate change brings up and we can see the added value for our environment our people but also to me to many people the evidence of twenty seventeen is that the terrifying prospect of the sea taking over is beginning to
1:24 pm
come true the better news is that the duchess figured out at least some of the answers and very many others are listening to lawrence lee al jazeera role to them . now the u.s. air force is in vesting i think how it handled the criminal records of the gunman behind sunday's church shooting in texas twenty six people including children were killed when former ammon david kelly entered the church and opened fire the air force says it failed to hand over information about kelly's previous domestic assault charges to a national database. i think calling takes a look back at the history of gun violence in the us this is a couple of dozen more states that are running out of the school and it wasn't the first mass shooting but it shocked the country columbine high school in colorado thirteen dead and you are getting shot already really that was nine hundred ninety nine these scenes only continued to the point it can seem that nowhere is safe not

1:31 pm
welcome back you're watching out there time to recap our headlines now saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed is accusing iran of an act of war for supplying who the rebels in yemen with a missile that was fired towards riyadh saudi air defense forces intercept the ballistic missile on saturday. saudi arabia says lebanon will be dealt with as a government that has declared a war against the country seven and prime minister sagal how do you blame the iran has a lot of the stabilizing the region how do you resigned while in riyadh he is now in the united arab emirates for talks. u.s. president donald trump has left open the door for negotiations over north korea but said his country and its allies in the region can take military action against pyongyang if needed trump has been meeting his south korean counterpart in seoul where he said the two men were on the same page as far as south korea was concerned

1:35 pm
that should be preventable twenty million people out of a population estimated at twenty seven million are in need of humanitarian assistance but it appears for now all international aid is being cut saudi arabia has announced it's completely blockading the country cutting all air sea and land links it's a reaction to a missile fired towards riyadh by the who these who control a large part of yemen including the capital sanaa to u.n. flights into the country have already been blocked and we're trying to see whether we can get our normal access restored and we're hopeful that we will be able to continue our normal operations we once more. underscore to all parties the need for regular humanitarian access to all parts of yemen that are in need when the u.n. says it's hopeful its aid can soon resume that's only based on the fact that the
1:36 pm
saudis current blockade is said to be temporary when you look at the words the u.n. is using it's clear they're treading carefully the reality is that saudi arabia has been making restrictions on the aid medicine and food allowed into yemen for years after facing turmoil conflict and an ongoing cholera epidemic the conditions in yemen can only be described as dire and they look set to worsen even further jamesburg al-jazeera at the united nations. now the united states and turkey have partially resumed to processing visas the us stopped issuing visas in turkey last month after a consulate employee was arrested in istanbul and queues of having links to businessmen federal law glenn and response turkey suspended its own nonimmigrant visa for u.s. nationals turkey's prime minister banally yielded in is urging washington to extradite girland is being blamed for last year's failed military coup. the
