threat. threat that danger to world peace regional peace and sort of united in response south korea test fired its own missiles a show of force against its northern neighbor. at the state department official said secretary rex tillerson left a meeting with the king of jordan in order to consult with allies and at the united nations a sense of a long arm if it was launched you know towards the island over japan. if you fail you know economy because it would be of course an even greater. danger to ships to airplanes the u.n. security council recently passed two resolutions imposing new sanctions on young as punishment but analysts say this latest launch shows pyongyang doesn't care about international opinion and part of that is i think to signal to beijing you know
pushes too hard because we were not going to back down and we could go a little crazy you know it might not be so good for you either at the request of the u.s. japan and south korea the u.n. security council will meet later on wednesday to discuss this latest missile launch by north korea at most it's going to give member nations a chance to express their dismay with refusal to comply with international law and international resolutions it's going to take a lot more diplomacy than just one meeting in order to resolve this crisis rosalyn jordan al-jazeera at the state department well steve in nigeria is an associate professor of politics and international studies at the international christian university and he says the timing of the test is important coming after the chinese communist party conference donald trump's tour of asia. koreans are tested at this particular time because they understand that shooting isn't in a very powerful position after the ninety party congress is not willing to put more
pressure on the north koreans. they he also view the kim regime of use what's happening in south korea and the souring relations with japan and south korea as a potential this or between these two countries in terms of the cooperation with the north china and the united states are not seeing eye to eye on these particularly on north korea and we do have the russian continued trade and deepening trade relations with north korean north koreans of all stakeholders within the region are fractured they're not working together nor cooperate in any synergize way to put pressure on the north and as a result the north has been able to continue to expand its missile and missile technologies and development the international international community community need to work together in a unified way to deal with the north korean and what we see right now with the major stakeholders are not being north korea in the same way and seeing it as a the same urgency and secure a security challenge of the united states and japan and south korea now that the
head of the catholic church pope francis is in the mirror most largest city of yangon he'll be delivering a mass to thousands of people many have lined the route to greet him as he was brought into the venue on tuesday francis called for respect for the rights of all ethnic groups to see appeared alongside the country's leader in terms of she thought he avoided any direct mention of the wreckage it was a minority but now it's all across what it's called hyde lou joins us from yangon and scott the pope has had to tread a very very delicate path here hedley. absolutely now again hit the masses still going on here tens of thousands of people have gathered at the grounds here in central yangon to see the pope some even slept out overnight hundreds slept out overnight so they could come into this venue he came in probably about an hour and a half ago going on two hours now he rode his kind of trademark popemobile through that large crowd of tens of thousands behind me so they could all get
a close look at him and then he went up to the stage where he still is now he delivered a short homily and one message that he came of it came across through that is he said that the people of myanmar your country of myanmar has been a victim of anger and wrath and he said that the only way for a positive future is through pete obviously again we're going back to these very broad messages that we heard when he was speaking after leaders meetings in a bit or this nation's capital yesterday yesterday was a little bit more of an allusion to what was going on in in the or kind state and with the range of crisis today is much more broad strokes he also mentioned that you know he's delivering this message not just to the christians about three million in country or the catholics about seven hundred thousand and country he said he's delivering this message to all people of myanmar that peace is the only way forward as i now say had to be very careful what was his main concern in how he approaches will it more about fears of repercussions against catholics within man
well. there was this the idea that range is a name that the government and a lot of the people in myanmar don't use so it's a very sensitive topic they are viewed the ranger are viewed as by the government a lot of people in myanmar as illegal bangali migrant they don't consider them to be part of myanmar that's why it's a delicate issue in the past the pope has referred to them as the region has said that they are peaceful people and that they are being oppressed because of their beliefs so that's what he was saying coming in today there was concern how hard he would push that message while in. country because it's such a delicate issue and yes there was concern that there could be kind of backlash in other groups that don't believe that there are part of the any more ember leave that the way the government has handled it is the right way to go there was concern about that he did deliver a message but not as strong as he had before he came in country so yes he had to really kind of walk that fine line you know acting yes as
a religious leader but also as an artful diplomat. well as the pope conducts mass there in yangon him in ma scotland thanks very much. the man accused of masterminding the two thousand and twelve benghazi attack has been acquitted of the most serious charges against him. that was captured by american forces in two thousand and fourteen u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack on the u.s. diplomatic compound she everton's he has this report. the attacks on the state department and cia compounds in benghazi libya on september the eleventh twenty twelve have been a rallying point for republicans who accuse them secretary of state hillary clinton of not doing enough and then lying about the incident that led to the death of four americans including ambassador christopher stevens we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that an assault sprang out of
that and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact but but the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans was a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night or decided they'd go kill some americans what difference at this point does it make. i was detained in twenty fourteen the government accused him of being a ringleader in the attack prosecutors presented testimony that khattala had called for attacks on americans however his defense lawyers say he was a bystander who arrived on the scene after the attack a point conceded by the prosecution in addition a key prosecution witness was paid seven million dollars for his testimony and having been detained in twenty fourteen could tell i was held at sea for almost two weeks his defense lawyers say he was deprived of sleep and had no legal counsel after five days of deliberation the jury found him guilty of one count of conspiracy to provide material support or resources to terrorists one count of
providing material support or resources to terrorists one count of maliciously destroying and injuring dwellings and property and placing lives in jeopardy and one count of using and carrying a semiautomatic weapon during a crime of violence but he was acquitted of the federal murder and other charges he faces decades in prison she has. the foreign ministers from the u.k. saudi arabia the u.a.e. and oman have met in london to try and find a peaceful solution to the war in yemen britain's foreign secretary boris johnson called the crisis the number one impending humanitarian catastrophe and urged countries to work together paul brennan this report no defining breakthrough moment from these talks this forum that's been held here in london but an indication from the u.k. of the urgency of the matter and recognition according to the foreign and commonwealth office at least from the saudis the u.a.e. oman and the u.s. and of course the u.n.
about the humanitarian plight being faced by the yemeni civilians three million of whom have been displaced tens of thousands of whom have been killed over the past three years and this blockade of the past two and a half weeks causing real genuine hardship now although the blockade is being eased the trickle of humanitarian supplies which have been able to get into yemen is hardly enough to feed the starving thousands of the those affected by cholera as well and aid agencies are extremely worried about the deteriorating situation there the foreign office minister from the u.k. has spoken in the wake of the meeting to say that the saudis understand the urgency of delivering humanitarian aid but at the same time they also want to have security from the kind of missiles that we saw fired from the hutu rebels that said there is a recognition of the great urgency although resolving the situation will be dictated by events on the ground and that includes the delivery of humanitarian aid

latest myself and japan says it's the highest altitude achieved by north korean missiles. the man accused of masterminding the two thousand and twelve and godsey attack has been acquitted on the most serious charge for the games that. was captured by american forces in two thousand and fourteen u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack on the u.s. diplomatic compound. at the catholic church pope francis in me in moscow lodges and . delivering a mass to thousands of people francis is treading a difficult diplomatic line during his visit having to avoid any direct mention of the engine was in the minority over six hundred thousand were injured and fled to mustn't oldest after a military crowd. now the the international airport on the indonesian island of bali remains closed for a third day is. continues to spew volcanic ash the second biggest in indonesia i suspect is a closed until thursday about one hundred thousand people living near the volcano
have been told to leave their homes and scientists warn that a major eruption could happen at any moment let's bring now to our correspondents that vastly joins us live from the foot of the mountain at the volcano what is the latest how's the mountain looking. well i'm going to i'll go my mt i will miss completely confident clouds at the moment the weather has been very bad here in the area i was a psycho loon actually and also that has changed the direction of the wind going to the west now so all the ash the ash that's been erupting from the volcano for the last couple of days is now going to a different direction also rocks up to four kilometers has been thrown out of the crater but so far a life i has yet to arrive from the volcano mark mind is already building up inside the crater up to the to the highest level and you can actually see the
pressure building up and the tremors were recorded on tuesday which actually according to folks on a los focus on the largest say that this is an over option that could be very imminent a very big eruption but the problem with this volcano is that there are no scientific data of the latest a very major eruption here in one thousand nine hundred sixty three so it's very unpredictable at the time actually there was a the very first we call a russian an optical scan kilometer so a lot of people are very worried about this and that's why the authorities are saying that the whole area has to be cleared of people and their cattle and at the moment though still a few people are quite reluctant to leave actually going to syria or because there's no way of knowing when or indeed if she will actually blow it must be very difficult to persuade people to leave the area because ultimately you might not dirt all. exactly it has a huge impact on their life of course if they have to evacuate they can't work on
their land their and their cattle is left behind and actually two months ago radio thought you had already cleared the whole area they said everyone had to evacuate because at that time they thought the market was going to erupt didn't happen for people went back home and of course now they are a lot more reluctant to leave their homes again because it could actually take a few months nobody knows nobody can predict or it's that thanks very much indeed. on that situation in the meantime thank you mr snow now the u.n. security council held an emergency session on human trafficking in libya evidence emerge of hundreds of people being auctioned for as little as four hundred dollars mike hanna reports now from new york. a small crowd of african ex gather outside the libyan embassy in protest against the practice of modern day slavery. none here disputes that libya is now a failed state but many argue that those who are affected the overthrow of the
gadhafi government six years ago must share responsibility for the consequences of the political vacuum that was created among them the abuse of migrants and refugees who fled their native lands. just up the road the security council discusses what is to be done. calls for a strong expression of condemnation from the security council the horrific images emerging in recent weeks. they underscore the urgency of improving our global policy to tackle the scrooge and put an end to this human tragedy. the un's refugee chief proposes immediate measures but says funds as well as words must be deployed strengthening refugee protection and offering solutions along the routes. including in chad that me share is key but dramatic funding gaps persist especially in
sub-saharan africa some ninety percent of refugees and migrants attempting to get to europe pass through libya and it's the most vulnerable who are the prey. they sell africans over there in libya they sell men even fifteen year old libyans or they're in a car they're armed the coming kidnap you and the so you've heard seventy to one hundred fifty dollars and then others will resell you. soon as you arrive in libya the first thing that happens is that you are taken away and sold under discussion in the security council the possibility of sanctions against individuals and entities and of applying the full range of international law including the use of the international criminal court but the session ends without resolution it could be weeks even months before the u.n. security council agrees on concrete measures to stop slavery but those suffering in africa and their contacts in new york my adamant even today.
