i don't think we needed the war but some of my british officials did hear their story on talk to al-jazeera at this time. talking. about shooting people or not must try to shoot themselves and then all the countries of managed to solve this problem are you worried that this conflict could erupt into its own right. that this is. where the people who pay the price the right top unprejudiced setting the stage for a serious debate on front at this time on al-jazeera. north korea and celebrate as their nation launches its most powerful weapon yet a muscle observers believe could put all of the u.s. and rain.
i'm richelle carey this is out there live from our world headquarters in doha also coming up the man accused of coronated may two thousand and twelve benghazi attack in yemen as acquitted of the most serious charges also. former bosnian croat leaders wait to learn their fate as u.n. judges hand down their final verdict for war crimes committed for the breakup of yugoslavia. and some good news for thousands of tourists transit on the indonesian resort island of bali. or praise us as it successfully tested its most powerful and or continental ballistic missile yet a weapon it says can reach all of the u.s. mainland these were the scenes of celebration inside north korea were locals. films
reacting to the news outside though there is the usual round of world condemnation of the un security council will hold an emergency meeting later on wednesday so this do missile call song fifteen was launched from kyung song not far from the capital at a port only reached a height of about four and a half thousand kilometers so let's put that in perspective that is ten times higher than the international space station if live for fifty three minutes before crashing into the sea off the coast of japan richard singer is senior fellow and coordinator of the military transformations program at the s. rajaratnam school of international studies in singapore we appreciate your time very much so. for the people that watch these things aware of that north korea had reached this level of capability well i think we pretty much assumed that they were trying to get there and they've been making. pretty steady state types of
progress. new missile launch. you know beyond below what kind of we're. talking about building the i.c.b.m. it will be so it's not very surprising little clouds a little bit of a shock but why do most of the suppliers so it having said that that it's not a surprise can you still put in perspective what this could mean this this type of capability this range. well i mean as it's been pointed out is theoretically it's capable of hitting some target in the eastern united states such as washington d.c. we still have a long ways to go before i think to be able to develop a warhead that small know that keep it in the something like this apparently what we heard was the only way they were able to reach that kind of altitude was they had a very very light warhead by the way the warhead broke up on reentry of course
you don't want to do that and produce more original one out of them so they feel that their work out had a lot but again like i said it was just shows that they are keeping their eyes on the prize and marching for several towards that goal basically having w m d a that's capable of threatening all of the united states and if the international community wants to actually do something about this what do you think it is has been missing and their response to this since that continues to happen and continues to escalate while if you're trying to do here we're eyes north korea the i'm sorry that ship was that was something they could have done ten years ago or twenty years ago to really push the button they have done. all the old commands that north korea have for say peace treaty with the united states were some kind of motives for bend they were the world that would come as part of
a new nuclear isolation but that's off the table the worker ants are going to keep to their weapons no matter what. i don't think you're going to get them to freeze i think we're just going to have to accept that north korea's a nuclear weapons state and that in the few years of that we have nuclear weapon states with i see. ok richard but singer thank you very much. francis preached a message of forgiveness for people to avoid acts of revenge during his first public mass and myanmar's largest city and calm a crowd of about one hundred fifty thousand turned out to see the leader of the roman catholic church in what is a mostly buddhist nation when he spoke a day earlier pope francis called for everyone to respect the rights of all ethnic groups that avoided using the name of myanmar persecuted muslim minority. so. i know that many in mean marbury the wounds of violence both visible and invisible
the temptation is to respond to these injuries with a worldly wisdom that will make the king in the first reading is deeply flawed we think that healing can come from anger and revenge yet the way of revenge is not the way of jesus. it's got hired last more from yank on. the pope conducting mass here 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 firsthand 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 on tuesday nothing specifically about the revenge of but he said that this country the people of this country have been victims of anger and wrath that the only way for a future for this country is through peace so again broad terms on how myanmar should go forward coming from also meet on wednesday with leaders of the buddhist religion
council will be meeting with them and also meet with bishops from the catholic faith and then they'll start his second phase of this trip will go over to bangladesh that's the other side of the range of prices who leave for bangladesh on thursday. the pope's next stop is in bangladesh as scott said and the tiny catholic community in dhaka is getting ready to welcome him on thursday some occult prayer sessions in their homes hoping the pope's visit will promote more tolerance for their religion in a muslim majority nation christians make up rather fewer than one percent of bangladesh's population. president is accusing saudi arabia of targeting his country as a way of shifting focus away from saudi involvement and regional conflicts tension has been escalating between the regional rivals since sanctions on iran were under the nuclear deal. country has to act with professionalism when dealing with the kingdom. seeking to solve two fundamental problems that's why
they try to characterize it as an enemy saudi arabia. and finally failed in lebanon they failed in all of these regions and one book i would the failure by doing it out of an enemy secondly inside saudi arabia the dense and the internal disputes so there is an enemy to cover of the failure and they've done a problems that's for the must professionalism. and jury in the united states has convicted a libyan man of supporting terrorism by orchestrating the attack on the u.s. embassy in benghazi five years ago. faces life and president despite being cleared of the most serious charges of murder four americans including the u.s. ambassador killed he has more. the attacks on 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 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 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

the situation. this is twelve kilometers from the top of mt argonne this is still considered a safe area that's why families from villages closer to the crater five kilometers from the top have taken refuge here but as you can see during the day there's hardly anyone here most of the men have gone back to the top despite instructions by the government and also risking their lives mainly because they have to take care of their animals i'm going to ask if you want to hear if she's not worried her husband is so close in the danger zone a very close to the cradle of humanity and evil from e.m.i. so we are passing around what delia. but you cannot select the people. that. you become an image and yet he says she is very worried but her husband has no other choice because he has to take care of the animals and this is
a situation the government is facing right now two months ago they instructed everyone to leave because at that time the alert level was already raised but on one hundred thousand people then left their houses and came down the mountain didn't interrupt so many people had to go back to their houses and now it seems many are reluctant to leave again while everyone is watching mound are going very very closely and it's now completely covered in cloud scientists say they have detected tremors which could indicate a major eruption is about to happen any time soon although nobody can predict exactly when in one nine hundred sixty three mount argo erupted explosively killing up to fifteen hundred people and that happened just one month after the volcano started to massively erupt ash clouds and rocks similar to what is happening right now. next a look at whether the wait is on engine maven to go. for the arrival of the syrian

tonight or tomorrow same time the snow will become even more of a large area covering a good part of slovenia austria slovakia not through poland as we get to what's thirty centimeters maybe more than that i think in one fall with heavy rain to the south of that and tempers behind even lower five in london three in berlin down to ten in madrid a real touch and a real push of winter now at the same time of course is going to be a consequence across the other side of the water north africa that cloud at the moment is just gathering but in the next two days i think they'll concentrate in a line of rain which will produce something substantial through morocco or tunisia temperatures are coming down obviously but the concentration or rain could cause some flooding. sponsored by. their online the us response to. the drug trade over the last fifty years.

geneva are 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 has been involved in a major intensification east and. its trip to 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're supposed to be. well i was just informed by do russia and then do it today or did people a meeting did the russians have their proposals there and the government they've accepted a defiant it's difficult because we were and are very content up till now we need to feel where they did take place but it did not please you then told that they've actually been proposed to end their greed upon just the day of the beginning of the
station. there is tension within the opposition camp two groups the karo platform and the moscow platform were 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 is tilting towards to be the supporter of a brutal regime russia is not a neutral party in syria. but i believe that the man is between.
the rock and the hard place. with comments like that on the first day the prospects for this round of mr stories talks can't be good james zero at the u.n. in geneva malaria infections are increasing around the world according to the world health organization which is asking for more money to fight the mosquito borne disease. has just put out a report which estimates that four hundred forty five thousand people died of malaria last year eighty percent of those were in sub-saharan african countries and india two thousand and sixteen saw about two hundred sixteen million cases of malaria nigeria is the worst affected country followed by the democratic republic of congo the number of infections last year was a million higher than two thousand and fifteen although that's a lot lower than it was five years ago james to vent iran is equal technical director at malaria consortium and he joins us now from london we appreciate your
time so this this increase did it surprise you all that it catch you off guard. yes it did catch us off guard although we have noticed an increase for the last three years we thought that the increasing use of insecticide treated nets as well as the increased use of tests for malaria would decline would cause a decline but it's a consistent increase and certainly eighty surprising so what if some of the tactics you just described aren't working what is causing the increase what is missing. i think it's a combination of things i think the first. i think w. chose modeling of the occurrence of malaria as well as the cause of death is improving and because of that they able to correct some of the missing information they had in the past so i think there's an element of how the data is being
collected i also feel that the number of people who access treatment is not as high as it should be we have made certain assumptions and yet almost forty percent of children under five who should be getting treatment are not getting it at all so when you say should i want that what is some we'll say when you say making certain assumptions assumptions like what. for example we assume that a large proportion of the children will be accessing treatment through the public sector but in a country like nigeria used to find that seventy percent of the population in nigeria are still accessing treatment in the private sector and a lot of the interventions we're doing with relation to diagnosis and treatment tend to be in the public sector and so you have a large proportion of people accessing treatment in the private sector and yet many
of our interventions are not actually reaching the private sector. is this something of that more fines could help or it would be effective in getting these numbers to go the other way. yes certainly more funding would help i also feel that we need to make more effort to work with the private sector the private sector consists of formal like hospitals. clinics then you have the informal sector which tends to be cure six pharmacies or even relatives now the regulation that is required to get standards in the private sector needs to be strengthened as i also have mentioned forty percent are not accessing treatment at all and something needs to be done about that it's either we make for example diagnosis and treatment free or we subsidize it
or we bring in additional regulation that engages the private sector. but i do feel strongly that without accessing without creating access we will struggle to bring down this burden of malaria especially in nigeria that we can get these numbers to start going in the right direction james to enter on a thank you very much with the malaria consortium appreciate it thank you very much to you as president donald trump is considering when and how to move the u.s. embassy in israel from tel aviv to jerusalem vice president mike pence revealed the plan at that commemorating the seventieth anniversary of the un's go for the partition of palestine that paved the way for the creation of the state of israel and even the embassy will anger anger that is arab states and palestinians who claim part of the part of jerusalem capital as a future of the palace future capital pardon me of the palestinian state where we

that this would be a good gamble for them to get in there have been signs the financial world has become more accepting of the virtual currency japan has recognized it as an official method of payment and the world's largest derivatives exchange operator c.m.e. group plans to start offering bitcoin futures before yours and bitcoins market capitalization is now larger than giant reality based companies like walt disney and i.b.m. investors have taken notice calling bass a popular online trading platform now has more than thirteen million users up more than three hundred thousand in the past week alone some financial experts see the rapid run up in bitcoins price as a classic symptom of economic delusion bitcoin as a speculative bubble the only question is when it's going to burst and who is going to be left holding the bag in the end the people that are holding it will hold

repeatedly promised to halt what he believes is a growing secularization of a christian holiday day don't use the word christmas because it's not politically correct you go department stores and they'll say happy new year and they'll say other things and it will be read they'll have a painted but they don't say well what we're saying merry christmas again. even trumps official white house holiday card is a stark contrast to that of his predecessor the word christmas was absent in all eight of president obama's annual cards a frustration for christian conservatives. two years ago many christians in the united states including donald trump were outraged when the coffee giant starbucks remove christmas symbols from annual holiday coffee cups still in recent years private businesses have moved away from overt christian messages to include those
who do not celebrate christmas in the holiday spirit i do think that it's very important to be cognizant of the speed and to respect them and it's like merry christmas because it's tradition. you know important the president has been accused of not embracing the traditions surrounding a key month in the calendar for us muslims for the first time in nearly. and he yours the white house has not hosted an if tar dinner to commemorate ramadan the islamic holy month there is no doubt the trumps are putting the christ vacuum christmas included with the predictable gingerbread house and christmas tree lighting a trump has also prominently displayed the nativity scene honoring jesus' birth kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington.
