7:01 am
hello i'm down in jordan this is on jazeera live from doha also coming up the u.s. calls on the united nations to act against iran over the firing of missiles into saudi arabia from yemen. catalonia leadership puts the emphasis back on autonomy rather than independence from spain plus. six scientists have just been locked inside this tin can behind me and they weren't becoming out to seventeen days on rory talents in moscow russia keep watching to find out what all this has to do with deep space travel. u.s. president donald trump has warned north korea its nuclear and missile programs are putting it in grave danger trump has wrapped up his visit to south korea with an
7:02 am
address to its national assembly he emphasized the role of the u.s. military in the region and push the message of peace through strength but also slam north korea's leadership as a cruel dictatorship not to be intimidated. today i hope i speak not only for our countries but for all civilized nations when i say to the north do not underestimate us and do not try this we will not allow american cities to be threat with destruction we will not be intimidated well tony berkeley joins us live from seoul turning this was a very forceful powerful speech from president trump not surprisingly he denounced north korea and significantly warned its leader that acquiring nuclear weapons would not make him safe but put him in mortal danger. yes i mean considering his comments on when on wednesday where around tuesday when he seemed to tone down his
7:03 am
rhetoric this is really very much putting it back on the front burner he was very strong in his condemnation about the dictatorship in the north the plight of the north korean people he was very firm in what he said about the possibilities that could happen he said that the north koreans were in pursuit of nuclear weapons for their ultimate objective which was to control the korean peninsula and he said that america won't let that happen he said that previous u.s. administrations shown restraint and that the north korea should not see that as weakness that would be a total miscalculation and he said his administration was a different one he talked about how the united states is spending billions of dollars and making it the most technical and advanced army in the world and he said they would use that if american cities were attacked and he said that to the north korean leader that you think that nuclear weapons will make you safer but in fact they make the risk greater for you and put you in peril so there was
7:04 am
a very strong message there from president trump a very impassioned description i think he's made now a lot of people uneasy but he was preaching to the converted in south korea the five hundred fifty lawmakers gave him a standing ovation very much the language they wanted to hear and also i think i'll go down well in japan how that will go down in china and russia is another matter tony and with tough talk from trump over north korea what sort of response can we expect from pyongyang. well we had an immediate one a very brief one where they described him as a mad dog and they said that he shouldn't miscalculate them and what they can do and of course they've done nothing in the half in the past fifty days as we know they've had six underground nuclear test they've been threatening an atmospheric nuclear test perhaps this will be the provocation they need to start this but obviously it seems like now to leaders head on here it's very difficult to see who is going to back down without losing face and nobody that i speak to. any belief
7:05 am
that it will be the north korean leader tony just a final thought from you there was an early on balancing moment for trump when he tried to make a surprise visit to the demilitarized zone but failed to tell us what happened quickly basically this was something we were told it was range yesterday at the instigation of president moon the south korean korean leader he went off in a helicopter before president trump and then when president trying when the weather became so bad that they had to turn back they made two attempts to land he is the first american president since ronald reagan not to have gone to the demilitarized zone that was a bit of a failure but everything else i suppose he will see is excess in this twenty five hour trip to south korea tony thank you. well the next stop on trump's tour of asia is china and he's expected to push president xi jinping to take a tougher line on its ally north korea it could prove to be difficult as agent brown reports from beijing. when richard nixon became the first u.s.
7:06 am
president to visit china forty five years ago chairman mao was in charge the cultural revolution was still on and the man now china's president was nineteen years old and working on a farm today she jinping is the dominant force in chinese politics he says he wants china to be center stage in the world not since he has a u.s. president had to deal with a chinese leader as powerful as she. trump is getting less attention at present and he doesn't like that because he is sort of he's leading the discussion of climate change and he's participate actively in the free trade discussion so bad for trying he doesn't have anything like that. last comfort fortunately and these she. definitely he definitely does it'll be tensions over north korea and chinese trade practices little be the dominant themes but china is
7:07 am
still expected to confirm several trade deals for which trump will be able to claim credit says one analyst she will play him like a fiddle he will he will be very polite he will be obsequious and he will basically pushed up around it make him pay attention to what he thinks he needs to pay attention to and everything will be smiles and handshakes and trouble go away getting nothing from the visit at first glance they appear to very different leaders but they do have some things in common both are populist politicians both take big political risks she jinping has a china dream from wants to make america great again and curiously they are born just a day apart although in different years with the exception of gerald ford every visiting u.s. president has gone to the great wall but it's not on trump's itinerary given his love of walls it could have provided a memorable headline adrian brown al-jazeera beijing they're not

7:13 am
victories are viewed as a rejection of the policies of donald trump and with climate change causing more floods and storms the middle it shows us how prevention is better than cure or in that state with us. from the sky. to the fresh breeze in the city. hello there we're seeing a fair amount of try out and some rain over the middle east at the moment you can see it on the satellite is this weather system hey gradually drifting its way eastwards and it has been giving us a fairly impressive rainfall totals more of them as we head through the next day with say behind it is not looking too bad for some by a read on maximum temperature of around twenty four degrees and just dropping a fraction as we head through into thursday that weather system that doesn't really had very far even on thursday just working its way steadily towards the east
7:14 am
working its way across the caspian sea this so back you can expect to see one or two more showers now here in doha no major changes for us over the next day you'll say we're looking at a top temperature of around thirty two degrees so it really is quite pleasant at the moment we're also at thirty two but we do have this area of cloud wet weather that's working its way towards us and it does look like it's going to be rather gray and damp there as we head through thursday as we head down towards the southern parts of africa where here are active area of low pressure is now just drifting away towards the east so if things are not dry up and they have been there many of us then seeing some settled weather as we have to at this day twenty one degrees the maximum may actually matching the temperatures that we're expecting to see in cape town most of the weather or not well that's in the far northern parts of especially across. the way sponsored by cats race. or is it weather online we were in hurricane. almost like thirty six hours
7:15 am

7:17 am
election call to arms the word independence hardly appears but. spain has carried out a coup d'etat against the legitimate government our colleagues who are now in prison have been subject to mao treatment by the spanish authorities and spain must now respond to international justice. the change of tone reflects how much and how fast things have changed for the independence movement probably independence is going to have a secondary role i mean this doesn't mean that people are going to forget what happened the last month but at the same time in their minds of the politicians are now also the whole society we are starting to think about this process as something that you need more time in other to to make the underpinnings of the neo con trip that new country now under the thumb of central government the independent republic they proclaimed less than two weeks ago has been stamped out the most urgent task
7:18 am
now lifting direct rule by madrid restoring catalonia is autonomy before deciding what to do next much will depend on the far left coupe party supporters of independents and previously kingmakers in parliament who may yet decide to boycott all disrupt december's election but here too the tone has changed. are people aware that this is very difficult right now yes but people are also aware. that the way to achieve our sovereignty is with a republic it does seem that those who support independence in catalonia are beginning to accept that their dream remains a distant one journal al-jazeera barcelona. the french prime minister has publicly back to these the terrible magazine charlie hebdo value to punish those of issued death threats towards the magazine over its latest issue charlie hebdo was attacked
7:19 am
in twenty fifteen after publishing cartoons of the prophet muhammad the latest edition features a sexually provocative depiction of terek ramadan he's a muslim scholar and professor at oxford he's taken leave of absence falling allegations of sexual misconduct including rape i still says it was behind an attack on a t.v. station in afghanistan that left two people dead and twenty injured gunman wearing police uniforms were holed up in the t.v. station for more than two hours security forces regained control of the attackers were killed it's being seen as an assault on media freedoms in the country journalists of the channel return to broadcasting almost immediately after the siege was over. new information continues to emerge on the gunman who killed twenty six people in a church in the united states on sunday according to a local t.v. station in texas devon kelly escaped a mental health facility five years ago he was sent there for beating his wife and stepson kelly also made death threats to military superiors and tried to smuggle guns onto a base while serving in the air force and as rob reynolds reports despite all this
7:20 am
he was still allowed to buy an arsenal of guns. a bureaucratic failure by the us air force allowed the texas church gunman to buy an assault rifle and other weapons despite a conviction for domestic violence devon kelly beat and choked his wife in two thousand and twelve while serving in the air force and struck her toddler son so violently he fractured the child's skull kelly was sentenced to a year in military prison and given a bad conduct discharge the air force should have provided kelly's information to a national criminal database listing those convicted of violent offenses who are prohibited from legally buying guns but for unexplained reasons it failed to do so that blunder ultimately allowed kelly to buy multiple firearms which he used to kill more than two dozen people in the small baptist church in sutherland springs
7:21 am
on sunday roseanne so elise survived my with hiding under the benches and i could feel when i'm with you one hundred back and forth and i know i know i was going to call that ball the air force says it has launched a review of how kelly's case was handled police say the killer was embroiled in a dispute with his strange to second wife's mother who sometimes attended the church but was not present during the rampage two men chased kelly from the church until he crashed his car and shot himself dead mass killings on this scale inevitably lead to call for stricter gun control laws president donald trump on a visit to south korea dismissed the idea out of hand there would have been no difference three days ago and you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun or
7:22 am
a rifle in his truck go out and shoot him and hit him and neutralize him. and i can only say this if he didn't have a gun instead of having twenty six dead you would have had hundreds more dead so that's the way i feel about it in the past eighteen months there have been more than five hundred mass shootings in the united states with nearly seven hundred people killed and thousands injured a record of violence unmatched by any other developed country robert oulds al jazeera springs texas. the democrats have won the governorships in two key u.s. states in what's being seen as a rejection of donald trump's policies democrat film if he took a swing state in new jersey replacing outgoing republican chris christie and in virginia ralph northam will take over from a fellow democrat maintaining the party's hold on the state with a victories are a moral boost for the democrats ahead of midterm elections next year mike hanna has
7:23 am
more from washington. it's a significant victory for the democrats in virginia democrat candidate ralph nor them winning the race for governor of the state and a defeat for the candidate who was supported publicly by president trump earlier in the day however in recent hours president trump appears to have withdrawn the support saying that he never embraced him as president but also major gains for the democrats in the state legislature they picked up a number of seats there including a very significant victory danika rome the first public transgender person to win a seat in the assembly she defeated day long term republican candidate who was known for his strong opposition to. people so there's some of the democrats saying there are signs of a trend
7:24 am
a rejection of the trump administration and great hope ahead for those crucial midterm elections next year not for all those files or even photo but this one's for you twitter is doubling the one hundred forty character limit that means longer tweets for all those struggling to condense their messages the boost to two hundred eighty characters will be available in all languages except japanese korean and chinese myspace limitations haven't been an issue pollution in india's capital new delhi is hitting dangerous levels with some reading so bad they go off the air quality scale young kids won't be allowed to go to school on wednesday and older children won't be allowed to play outdoors president of the indian medical association is calling it a pollution epidemic. germany is the backdrop as world leaders made to the annual u.n. climate change conference it comes as many countries are feeling the effects of rising sea levels powerful hurricanes and heavy flooding and they're turning to the netherlands for answers largely reports from rotterdam. a city which at its lowest
7:25 am
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 a levee 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 theatres but they're 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 cycle lane on top of it and that's and that's an end in quality but it's also creating more flexibility. to meet the netherlands was forced to address is geographic weakness in one nine hundred fifty three when a huge storm pushed the north sea inland nearly two thousand people died they
7:26 am
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 a full forty years after the great flood of nine hundred fifty three to complete the infrastructure necessary to keep the north sea out of the netherlands and of course river in rotterdam 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 water rather than against it and of course the political will to make it happen. 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. china we have already implemented some and we are hoping to work with the netherlands much more then the only ones that the amsterdam was a conference thirty global may as a listening to the mayor of rotterdam tell them spending on prevention is far
7:27 am
cheaper than having to evacuate their cities but if you do the math and you see the amount of money that you pay after mass 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 the moment we do. we will die at 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 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
7:28 am
. now six scientists spending the next seventeen days locked inside a giant metal box in russia's capital it's part of an experiment to test the psychological effects of a mission into deep space as well we challenge reports it could be a significant step towards a manned mission to mars. for the six scientists the world is about to get very small for a while the five russians and one german test subjects in the first of a series of experiments on deep space travel and not going to space so they'll be isolated in a pod inside a moscow medical research facility for seventeen days. among the. this is a team of professionals indeed each of them is a professional in his own failed altogether way like part of a mosaic that creates a team which you know earth research mission will accomplish all the tasks that we phase. where we are. after the press briefing it was
7:29 am
down to the whole housing the mock spacecraft it will be their homelands laboratory for at least fifty different experiments directed at how humans might cope on flights to mars and beyond and limited contact with the final waves and in through the hatch sirius seventeen will be followed by a four month mission next year eight months in two thousand and nineteen and a full year in two thousand and twenty. you may think it's a bit strange looking a bunch of people inside a tin can here on earth and running tests on them when there's actually a space station orbiting the planet and has been for decades seemingly much more suitable for these sorts of experiments but there are actually key reasons why this works it's not that the international space station isn't being used for similar tests it is but earth based analogs are much safer cheaper and in some ways can better mimic deep space travel yes us wasn't on one designed to be an isolation
7:30 am
environment it does i mean here you are isolated but more and more your own crew members have your cell phone in your pocket they can call their friends there is a requirement there's there are many thousands of commands i get sent from mission control to the vehicle every day with nasa russia and the european space agency all working together this experiment is also another reminder of the truly cooperative nature of space exploration rory chalons al-jazeera moscow. lots more news of course on our web site there it is on your screen the address out is your dot com al-jazeera. ok for the top stories then u.s. president donald trump has warned north korea its nuclear and missile programs are putting it in grave danger trump has wrapped up his visit to south korea with an
