mounts the trade is booming. hello i'm barbara starr you're watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up on the program. before. and i repeat. the promises to unite kenya and warning for a second thought i'm as president carefully chosen words pope francis avoids mentioning the rohingya crisis or claims of ethnic cleansing during a key address in myanmar plus bali's airport shuts down for a second day running as mt of gunk heap song from. the start of program a with some breaking news that we've received just in the past
few minutes the south korean news agency young yep says north korea has fired a ballistic missile now earlier japan detected radio signals suggesting that north korea was preparing another ballistic missile launch and now the south korean news agency say north korea has indeed fired a ballistic missile well for more on this let's speak to kathy novak she joins us on the phone from seoul kathy obviously this news broke out just a few minutes ago but what more can you tell us what context can you give us. well what we know right now is coming from south korea's joint chiefs the that has released brief confirmation thing that north korea launched an idea an identified ballistic missile eastward from the visitors' vicinity of pyongyang song south carolinian province that don't today that's not far from pyongyang and south korea's joint chiefs of staff are saying that the south korean and u.s.
authorities are analyzing the trajectory it's been since september the fifteenth when south north korea launched a missile over japan and that was the last time that we had any kind of missile launch any productive action in fact from pyongyang in the form of either in this file launch or a nuclear test and some questions had been asked about why it had been a relatively long lol in north korean terms for the cyle test some had questioned if perhaps that break in missile testing could point to whether north korea might be willing to come to the table for negotiations but others were pointing to the fact that it was simply seasonal perhaps with winter time here and that is usually a time when north korea does not launch as many missiles we've seen in the past a bit of more of a slowdown as north korea moves towards the military train winter training so these
questions are being asked also of south korea's unification minister when he spoke to the media yesterday and he was also saying that there could be a number of reasons why it had been since september that we saw on the south has but it seems now that north korea according to the south korean joy to use a staff has launched another missile we're not sure what kind of this file if it is another intercontinental range ballistic missile the one that it launched over japanese territory where intermediate range of these war will be the questions that are will be being asked and what kind of technology. north korea might be trying to demonstrate in this new file on trial for notice of notable it's the middle of the night in north korea it's about three thirty a.m. four a.m. so old time then it's not the first time that north korea has launched a new file in darkness seeming to want to demonstrate that it can launch from anywhere at any time but details still coming in on exactly what kind of missile as
i say north korea has launched and kathy i know you'll be following all those details and developments for us on the story for the moment though kathy novak from seoul thank you. now the u.n. security council is a briefing on the libyan slavery crisis evidence has emerged that hundreds of people are being auctioned in modern day slave markets in libya for as little as four hundred dollars libya is the main transit hub for refugees and migrants attempting to reach southern europe by sea we're going to have reaction from the u.n. in just a moment first though this report from burnet. this is not where these migrants want to be heading back to the african continent thanks to a from the italian government to reinforce libya's coast guard it's helped cut the number of migrants arriving in italy two hundred twenty two thousand in the last three months it's the lowest total for four years but people trafficking networks
in libya continue to flourish because of government chaos as rival groups battle for power. these are repatriated to the ivory coast from libya so they risk being sold into slavery. they sell africans over there in libya they sell men even fifteen year old libyans are there in a car they're armed the coming kidnap you and the cell you for seventy two one hundred fifty dollars and then others will resell you. as soon as you arrive in libya the first thing that happens is that you are taken away and sold our black brothers from west africa wherever you are from a million or any other nationality from the west even ibori and you are sold and for what seven hundred dollars. but these migrants will tell you that life is so hard in their home country that it's worth almost any risk to make a new start in europe now with the advent of the smartphone and with facebook and others pushing into africa a youngster can meet
a smuggler in two seconds on the phone now that nothing is being done to challenge that they think they're following a dream to europe they end up in the more in the grip of these repay shoes smuggler despite increased patrols the u.n. says more than one hundred sixty thousand people have made it across the mediterranean to europe this year about three thousand have drowned on bernard smith al-jazeera well as we mentioned the un security council is holding a briefing on the libyan slavery crisis and like a lot has been there. like one a week after the u.n. security council passed a resolution condemning the traffic in slavery france called for this emergency session which has been taken place it insists that more needs to be done more quickly in order for this massive problem to be addressed we've heard from the french ambassador the word barbaric also saying that every single element within
the u.n. security council's power must be used to address this ongoing problem of slave trafficking within libya especially this is what the u.k. ambassador had to say today let us stand together as an international community in our commitment to eliminate the a bar and crime of modern slavery and human trafficking and safeguard the lives and dignity of those who are most vulnerable like many libyans in country i share the discussed in grave concern that the news footage from last week i'm deeply concerned that civilians continue to suffer inexcusably from the conflict in libya and that in the absence of the rule of law they can suffer human rights abuses of the worst kind. and i welcome the announcement by the government of national accord of libya of an immediate investigation into this matter the security council is exploring ways in which to deal with this immediate problem that is of slave
trafficking the french ambassador has mentioned perhaps imposing sanctions against individuals and entities responsible for it he's also said that every aspect of international law must be brought to bear including possibly the international criminal court but what we've been hearing in security council discussions as well is slave trafficking is just a symptom of a wider cause that cause is forced migration within the african continent refugees moving within the african continent drifting out of their native countries by conflict by groups such as boko haram in nigeria but i saw in various parts of the continent and one must remember as well that ninety percent of would be refugees and forced migrants pass through libya of the way in an attempt to get to europe on the other hand what you have increased controls in europe of the movement of migrants and refugees so what you have in a way in libya is
a perfect storm of human degradation the issue of slavery very much a consequence of far wider problems existing throughout the continent and in europe itself. kenya's president who can yet has urged is the vital nation to move on from months of political upheaval after being sworn in for a second term his inauguration ceremony follows a violent and drawn out election process which included two disputed calls him yet has called on all leaders to serve the nation regardless of political affiliation and says he will dedicate all his energy to building unity and nationhood. today is the one hundred twenty third day. since we began on august eighth. two days you know that isn't. there for months.
and i repeat the end of our electoral process the elections. on now firmly behind us it's been a trying time. but once again kenyans of showing their resilience. in coming their pensions and the passions that accompany political competition. yes or there will catherine sawyer was at the swearing in ceremony in nairobi. president who are looking at the must be very relieved it's been a long and difficult election period and his message today really was about unity was very big on unity he knows too well that millions of supporters of the opposition do not support his presidency so he is reaching out to these people saying that he wants to be a president who will say that he's going to devote this five years in office to you know unite all king and he also talked about achievements of his government in the
last five years and this is something that he wants to continue he's talking about introducing free secondary education expanding maternal health care a continuing with a road construction that he had started at the railway that he had started that his government had started constructing he's also talking about connecting more people to the national electricity grid but a lot of people are really saying that he needs to deal with the apollo ricotta the streets and many kenyans will tell you this struggling to make ends meet the cost of living is very high more than sixty thousand people came to cheer. on many of them are leaving not knowing where they're going to get their next meal so this is something that he wants they want him to address as a matter of i don't see many other people also saying that he needs to decisively deal with corruption in the public sector that is something that he didn't really do in the last in his last stand so people are saying he needs to deal with that this is his last time he needs to leave
a good and lasting legacy he needs to make this things work. well to people including a seven year old child were killed the supporters of rival leader raul odinga clashed with police but being a rejected kenya his inauguration found to hold a zone swearing in ceremony as president in two weeks police fired rifles and tear gas to break up a large crowd of his supporters from the miller has more. residents of this area have been gathering all morning on on the. outskirts of the track around the ground now that's where the opposition the national super alliance and its leader raila odinga had wanted to hold a rally or a commemoration of its supporters who have been killed in recent days police are determined to keep these protesters out of the jacaranda ground are now moving in to the residential area when demonstrators have been gathering all morning they say they're angry with police they're calling police murderous this is after
a number of opposition supporters have allegedly been killed by police the opposition says at least twenty seven in recent days that's after the presidential rerun the protesters here say it's their right to gather to demonstrate peacefully we've seen protesters throwing stones though and we've seen police retaliate with tear gas a number of times the planned commemoration and rally were abandoned but raila odinga did try to come to this area but he was stopped by police while speaking to supporters he said he will have a swearing in of his own he says who are akin yatta is an illegitimate president who's beginning his second term in office after a sham election. actually used chapter one of our constitution the people. and we have said that and before but well we should hold the people's assembly that will swear me into office once raila odinga finished addressing his supporters here
in america c. and they were dispersed police have maintained a high presence in this area confrontations between themselves and demonstrators appear to continue and there's no sign of the tensions easing anytime soon. well still to come. as a new diplomatic push. away. i'm going to holland a greek island published boss where more than two and a half years after the great influx of refugees to europe and people are still making this perilous crossing from turkey every day.
some rather cool air across a good part of europe at the moment because. down across the northwest this is the line of the cooler to the north of that. lined up coming from a northerly direction from the arctic speckling of shallow cloud following on behind and that cold air will continue to slide its way further south as we go through the next few days and even getting as far south as the mediterranean temperatures in london and paris struggling to get to around seventy right celsius and screaming although it will feel pretty cold a few showers along the east coast as well so wet weather that across the mediterranean into central and northern parts of italy and up towards the bowl and seizing up of course in the most part still looking at snow in the snow becoming more expensive as we go on through thursday pick sway coming in here heavy rain there for the balkans still cold up towards the northwest coast still actually just five celsius there for london and paris is going to feel a good deal cold in that when you add on the strength of the winds that whether it
a lot of us are in london here's a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera the u.s. says that north korea has carried out a missile which japan's prime minister has ordered an emergency cabinet meeting the u.n. security council is meant to discuss reports of a growing slave trade industry in libya and kenya's president who took in yet has been sworn in for a second term as to what position supporters are killed in fighting with police. but francis has avoided any direct mention of me on mars or hinge a muslim minority as he appeared alongside the country's leader and son suchi the pope touched on the rohingya crisis but never directly named the ethnic group scott hyder explains. pope francis traveled to the
capital a poor tuesday on a day trip for me i'm going to beat on song suchi she introduced the pope after their closed door meeting of the many challenges that our government has been facing the situation in the rakhine has most strongly captured the attention of the world. touching on the issue that many are waiting to be brought up the plight of the religious. well not calling them by name though he has before he alluded to their plight a growing number of nations and international bodies are calling ethnic cleansing. the future me and my must be peace a peace based on respect for the dignity and rights of each member of society respect for each ethnic identity respect for the rule of law and respect for the democratic order that enables each individual and every group not excluded to offer
its legitimate contribution to the common good earlier in the day here and the pope started his first full day by conducting an interfaith meeting with buddhist christian hindu jewish and muslim representatives. when represented muslims he was on the rakhine commission led by the former head of the united nations kofi anon to provide recommendations on the real hinge a crisis like i didn't use the word i didn't mention about the crisis but i did say that. multi racial multi-religious literalistic society where diversity and unity prevails but recently religion has been hijacked and it has been politicized the roman catholic leader is due to hold mass in a stadium and gone on wednesday it will be the first time to speak to the tens of thousands of christians who've traveled from all over me and mar the c.e.o.
scott harbor al-jazeera. the un syria envoy stuff in the midst or a says the syrian government has agreed to a cease fire. after days of heavy bombardment it came at the start of a round of talks in geneva to try to find a way of ending the violence our diplomatic editor james bays reports from. the syria talks in geneva back on but for now with only one of the two sides present u.n. envoy stefan de mistura met the delegation from the opposition but the government which has been involved in a major intensification in eastern. geneva the suspicion is they wanted this aerial bombardment to strengthen their hand at the talks and you have any optimism when you see what's going on. as you were supposed to be because well it was just informed by the russian then do it today or to people
a meeting that the russians have proposed to end a government they've accepted a defiant is difficult because we were and are very content up till now we need to feel where they did take place but if not coincidentally that they've actually been proposed to end their greed upon just the day on the beginning of this stage. there is tension within the opposition camp two groups the karo platform in the moscow platform or previously shunned by the rest of the opposition now they've been brought into the negotiating team but that decision made in recent days in riyadh is deeply controversial many including the former leader riyadh his job resigned their posts and now a letter signed by over four hundred prominent opposition figures saying the team here in geneva does not represent them that delegation is led by nasa hariri but even those with him in geneva believe the process may have been compromised his
spokesman says he's worried that special envoy de mistura listens too much to the russians the man who was tilting towards to be the supporter of a brutal regime russia is not a party in syria. but i believe that the man is between. a rock and a hard place with comments like that on the first day the prospects for this round of mr de mistura can't be good. at the u.n. in geneva u.s. vice president mike pence says president trump is actively considering when and how to move the u.s. embassy in israel from tel aviv to jerusalem pensa made the comments during an event at israel's mission to the united nations now the controversial move is something trump has previously vowed that he would do in june trump signed
a waiver to keep the embassy in tel aviv but that's up for renewal early next month zimbabwe's new president has opened a three month amnesty window for the return of stolen public funds emersonian gal was says those individuals and companies that have illegally stashed money abroad have until the end of february to give it back when jaguar was sworn in as president on friday and promised to tackle corruption following the roberts my god is thirty seven year of war. president amisom and i was sitting at the ground running and he seems to be doing that he the poison into the government it's embarrassing will be good we is the acting president is minister patrick chinamasa is the acting finance minister both men were fired by robert mugabe they have years of experience in government is thought they will likely try to reengage with the international community patrick chinamasa the acting finance minister has a history dealing with the i am if it also seems that there are some signs on the ground that things could be improving for the first time in
a long time the my way the saying banks are now issuing u.s. dollars instead of the local bonds note cards with some people here say is the worthless and is devaluing too fast the present also has given people who give the externalized funds and assets three months three months to return those assets no questions asked and they won't be fined which could be a sign that he is willing to give them estates of the possum trying to move the country for the big question now is how many people are going to comply. police in greece have detained nine people after finding bomb making equipment and detonators in raids in athens eight men and one woman are being questioned after police searched three separate locations the suspects are sold to have links to a turkish armed group up to two hundred refugees a day arriving at the main government run camp on the greek island of less force is struggling to cope with the influx and harsh winter conditions are fast approaching as jonah hill reports now from lesbos there is
a prospect of the people there travelling further into europe. for more than two and a half years people have been making the perilous journey across the water from turkey many have lost their lives trying to reach the safety of europe's shores and still they come. i lose my house. i was. just my life i. feel for i baby. i just know that. it's now well known that europe's borders are closed the greece offers little prospect of one would travel to countries like germany. you know. but beyond the friendly smile of a volunteer camp worker they're about to discover another grim reality.
there are no bathrooms we haven't had a shower for ten days. hussein and her family from iraq weren't prepared for the dire conditions inside the main government run camp boss i looked at them and this is all greece has for them and with winter approaching they're trapped here like thousands of others i believe what we see today is also part of a big current strategy the message is very very clear if you want to apply for asylum in europe this is what you will find that where you will stay with them for a long period of time your needs will not be even met. and you will probably stay there for a year or longer if as a person seeking asylum you managed to survive the sea crossing by small rubber boat from turkey twelve miles away you might arrive as many have done at this pretty greek fishing port imagine if your first sight of the european union was a place like this. and yet you ended up stuck for months on end in
a place like this not all will have valid claims to asylum some will be considered migrants economic opportunists but whether they fled war or poverty there's no doubting their determination to find a better life i myself have been talking you know. more than where ever i have even . maybe i don't. have many good. bye and these. days i have this is like from head to head with staffers place of origin gambia isn't recognized as a country at war it's likely he will be deported under the terms of e.u. policy back to turkey his journey from hell to hell not over yet jonah how al-jazeera lesbos greeks. well this airport has been shut for
a second day as an erupting volcano disrupts travel plans and threatens thousands on the in the island. is a spewing huge clouds of ash into the air at the. towers of volcanic ash continue to shoot into the sky over bali after more than half a century of calm experts are warning of a catastrophe on mount. explosions can be heard and felt twelve kilometers away. for the second day the airport near the island capitol dome pasar is closed up ending the travel plans of thousands of tourists anyway so we don't know we don't know what's going to happen but even the dream. the government sent one hundred buses to the airport and to the island's ferry terminals to assist travelers ten airports elsewhere in indonesia are ready to handle diverted flights but the
response hasn't been quick enough for some medics have said the government is doing enough to help the foreign tourists there are thousands of people stranded here at the airport they have to go to another airport and they are trying to do that but the government and the thirty's. islanders are nearby lombok say the amount of gong eruption is hurting their businesses but it will not go the number of foreign tourists has dropped considerably while local tourists have increased in dealing with photographers are enjoying the spectacular event but it's of our ten show a life or death situation for the estimated one hundred thousand people in the danger zone the last major eruption of mt a gong in one thousand nine hundred sixty three killed around eleven hundred people natasha going to al-jazeera. and more on our website al-jazeera.
