1:20 am
started a crackdown on an armed were hanged a group which the military says was responsible for carrying out terrorist attacks . washington has long said that david l. has the right to ensure national security but that this crackdown has gone too far more than six hundred thousand ethnic were being a men women and children have fled from state into the neighboring country of triggering a massive refugee crisis the u.s. believes that it is now up to the authorities in naperville both civilian and military to ensure the quick repatriation of all of these ethnic rohingya as well as to make certain that they are protected from recriminatory and attacks they also are calling on the government to grant the rohingya full citizenship something which they have never enjoyed now the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has met several times with authorities
1:21 am
from me and maher urging them to basically change their ways and to make the situation involving the rohingya as safe and as stable as quickly as possible but so far there has not been any real change at least to the satisfaction of officials here in washington so now comes not just the determination that ethnic cleansing is underway but there is now also the threat of potential target u.s. sanctions against those people inside me amar who are responsible for the ongoing attacks on the rohingya it's now up to the people in me and mark both in the civilian and in the military leadership to try to see if they can actually comply with washington's demands it's a risk which they may not want to take leading palestinian political factions including hamas and fatah have agreed they need to hold elections by the end of next year that he just made the joint statement following marathon reconciliation

1:23 am
that represents palestine internationally will be reformed to include representatives from hamas and from some of the other factions and to adjust its mission and mandate accordingly all sides agreed that senior government officials from egypt will come here within the next few days to monitor these terms that have been developments of what's been agreed upon but no date was set for the permanent reopening of the rafa crossing for most people in gaza the only way in or out it's a border crossing with egypt has been closed to most of the last ten years reopen temporarily for a few days earlier this week but no date has been set for its permanent reopening. now the search for an argentinian navy submarine that's been missing for a week has reached a critical phase with fears the forty four crew on board could be running low on oxygen dozens of planes and searching the waters off the coast of argentina but
1:24 am
