when you're the most terrible thing in syria has to be that this has been the invisible weapon of the syrian dictatorship or the other whether sometimes a call to get better to god continue to be surely active than quarter of. the disappeared of syria but this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera is asked so where ever you are. north korea says it has successfully launched a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach the u.s.
mainland. this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up pope francis lead to service during his first visit to me but avoids making any reference to the ranger crisis. a u.s. jury acquits the man accused of masterminding the two thousand and twelve and galaxy attack serious charges. in a year on from a plane crash that killed nineteen brazilian plan we'll look at how much of a quinsey has rebuilt it's. so north korea says it has successfully launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach all of the u.s. mainland the announcement was made in the last half an hour on state t.v. kim jong un said the state's new capabilities are completed and says
a rocket reached four thousand kilometers an altitude never before seen from a north korean weapon let's go straight away live to kathy novak is in seoul and kathy tell us more about this announcement what else is north korea saying. north korea says this is a new type of missile that has not been seen before the hot saucing fifteen it's calling it we saw the test launches of intercontinental range ballistic missiles back in july those were some fourteen so what north korea saying here is that this is a new missile that represents advancement when it comes to their technology as you mentioned north korea is claiming this means that it has completed its final stages of developing its rocket program its ultimate goal of course we know that it's been stated that it wants to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that can be and with and armed with a nuclear warhead and hit all of the u.s. mainland north korea says here that this intercontinental ballistic missile can
carry a heavy payload and that it does have the range to hit the united states it seems from what it has displayed with this altitude of about four and a half thousand kilometers according to the south korean joint chiefs of staff analysts can look at those numbers and extrapolate that they believe the range could be as high as thirteen thousand kilometers which would indeed put all of the u.s. mainland in reach what analysts and governments will be looking at now will be further details will be hoping to see some pictures of the missile which haven't been released yet by north korea to see if they believe north korea's claims that it does represent the completion of their rocket program but what we heard from a south korean minister yesterday is in effect that north korea seems to move faster than many experts expect and analysts have said that north korea should not be underestimated because there were some estimations that it would take two to
three years for north korea to complete its nuclear program the unification minister here in south korea said he wouldn't rule out the possibility that that would be complete by next year and now we have north korea celebrating the success saying that its program is indeed complete right very troubling for the regional neighbors what are they saying. well here in south korea president monday and chaired an emergency meeting of the national security council condemning the launch we also had a strong condemnation from japan and the united states donald trump the u.s. president saying simply that the u.s. would take care of it staying away from some of the tough language we've heard before when he threaten north korea with fire and fury interestingly also north korea seemed to tone down its language even in the statement coming from state media regarding this particular missile launch if i can quote a bit of it to you it said that the purposes of the program is to defend the
sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country from the us imperialists nuclear blackmail policy and uclear threat and saying that it is making a solemn declaration that north korea will not pose any threat to any country in the region as long as the intrinsic interests of north korea are not infringed upon so seeming to demonstrate here or claim at least what many analysts have suggested in the past that ultimately perhaps what north korea really wants is a deterrence policy wants to demonstrate to the united states to the region here to the entire world that it should be taken seriously as a nuclear power and they want to defend against any potential preemptive strike from the united states that is something that president monday in a south korea also very much wants to avoid he made reference to that after chairing that emergency meeting this morning saying he doesn't want to see any sort of miscalculation that would lead the u.s. to launch a preemptive strike because of course the general consensus is if north korea were
to be attacked it would be very likely in the first instance to attack this city seoul or does he leave in the face very much a new coffee never reporting from seoul. the head of the catholic church pope francis is in man largest city of yangon he delivered a mass to thousands of people many lined the street to greet him he was brought into the venue on tuesday francis called for respect for the rights of ethnic groups as he appeared alongside the country's leader. he avoided any direct mention of the ranger muslim minority scott hardly has more now from. the pope conducting mass here and in these grounds to tens of thousands of people christians from across the country came here to see the pope and this is their first opportunity to see him first hand before he started the mass he drove through in his popemobile as it's known through the crowd behind me and then he went up to the stage and conducted the mass he also had a short family where there were broad themes like we've heard earlier in this trip

september the eleventh twenty twelve have been a rallying point for republicans 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 something sprang out of that an assault sprang out of that and that was easily but ascertained that that was not the fact but but the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know it 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 or decided they 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 and 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

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 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 as well as preventing any further rocket attacks. still ahead on the program a nation divided kenya's opposition leader vows to fight on as president who is sworn in promising unity. and a battle that pits jobs against the environment in the heart of u.s. coal mining country. sky by the time. or is the sun sets in the city of angels.

vice president my plan says president donald trump is actively considering when and how to move the u.s. embassy in israel to jerusalem in june trump signed a legal waiver that keeps the embassy in tel aviv palestinians say that the embassy would pre-judge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict the status of jerusalem and the money america's role as a mediator and wow for the past twenty. congress and successive administrations have expressed a willingness to move our embassy as we speak president donald trump is actively considering when and how to move the american embassy in israel from tel aviv to jerusalem. it well donald trump has ordered the environmental protection agency to begin rolling back obama era climate regulations it's a public hearing is taking place in the heart of america's coal industry there were
letters on that reports now from west virginia. and to see you guys he's the powerful owner of the largest underground coal mining company in the united states yeah i'm going to ask you first and while he normally would be greeting his employees at a coal mine today he's at the state legislature building urging the federal government to repeal it barack obama era climate change initiative that he says is illegal and killing his industry but unless this clean power plant is repealed this will force many of these coal fired power plants to close many more were closed which would destroy the jobs and the family livelihoods for thousands of coal mining families in this coal dependent state interest is high on the first day of public hearings the obama plan was to cut power plant emissions in america to reduce climate change but it now faces a repeal. something environmentalist say would be a disaster repealing the plan means ignoring the reality of the climate crisis
which puts our communities at risk of further disruption and deny them the opportunity to breathe clean air outside the state capitol a statue in honor of coal miners is a signal of how important the industry is to the state dot along the landscape signs of a one striping industry now in decline nationwide industry has lost forty percent of its workforce in a decade and production has dropped to a slow slow and forty years here in coal country west virginia the issue is personal it's about jobs and it's also political many people here seeing a friend in president trump in the white house but with the wind solar and natural gas cleaner and cheaper the future of coal in america might come down to a simple case of economics the economics of renewables are getting better all the time some of these things are just going to happen without government involvement
and so whether the government is. rather not the market is. saying it may have already decided we knew pools are considerably cheaper than coal and even if the u.s. reverses course on climate change policy prices likely won't change but in this part of america there is still hope they'll get the shot they need to revive an industry they're not willing to give up on just yet heber elizondo. charleston west virginia well oil giant royal dutch shell is denying the latest allegations of complicity in a military government campaign of murder rape and torture in southern nigeria in the one nine hundred ninety s. the international says that shell played a role in crimes against protesters reports now from. the homeland of the only people who saw the nigeria is calm now but the old reach delta has a history of murder rape. and oil pollution and rest against foreign
