hours young now says it can reach the u.s. mainland the new horse on fifteen intercontinental ballistic missile flew to an altitude of up to four and a half hours in kilometers and travelled nine hundred sixty kilometers spending nearly an hour in the air that high the missile traveled more than ten times above the international space station which orbits four hundred eight kilometers above the earth several weapons experts say the missiles aloft a trajectory suggest an actual range of thirteen thousand kilometers which is enough to reach washington d.c. and any other part of the continental united states but that also means europe which is seven thousand six hundred fifty nine kilometers away from north korea is also reachable by missile kathy novak reports from south korea's capital seoul. it's being celebrated as a priceless victory in north korea state media says the country has completed its rocket system development with the successful test launch of
8:03 pm
a new long range missile and you're going to get the i.c.b.m. what song fifteen weapon system is it into continental ballistic rocket took to the super large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the u.s. it's the third i.c.b.m. test this year north korea says this one is more advanced than the hawse on fourteen's in july traveling for around fifteen minutes to an altitude of about four and a half thousand kilometers before landing in waters off japan the intended target according to pyongyang's media from the u.s. president who has threatened to fire in fury in the past this response or we tell you that we will take care of it we have general mattis in the room with us and we had a long discussion about it. it is a situation that we will handle it went higher frankly than any previous top a pagan for research and development effort on their part to continue building ballistic missile that could threaten. everywhere in the world basically south
8:04 pm
korea says it detected the test in advance of the launch at around three a.m. local time and immediately responded with joint army navy and air force drills launching three missiles that simultaneously hit a simulated target the intended message to north korea the south could take out the launch site if necessary president trump spoke with the leaders of south korea and japan. japan will resolutely enhance its pressure on north korea to the maximum level we will continue to protect the lives and livelihood of the people of japan on to the strong japan u.s. alliance president monday and told trump that north korea's technology has apparently improved agreeing to. continue the sanctions campaign that anger is kim jong un's government but so far has failed to stop its missile and nuclear tests. yourself korea and the united states along with the international community have no
8:05 pm
other choice but to continue applying strong pressure and sanctions the south korean government says those sanctions are designed to force north korea to negotiations there has been no communication between the two countries since last year the u.s. and its allies have often said that denuclearization is a precondition for talks but it seems increasingly likely that if north korea comes to the table it will insist on doing so as a nuclear state cathy know that al-jazeera seoul mark fitzpatrick is the executive director of the international institute for strategic studies americas told me the capabilities of this misawa being exaggerated it's an evolution in the capabilities of north korea this missile flew eight hundred kilometers higher than the other one it was in the air seven minutes longer so it's a more capable missile but i i think some people are exaggerating its capabilities it cannot hit anywhere in the world i don't think it can even hit anywhere in the
8:06 pm
united states that doesn't matter north korea just needs to be able to hold one major city in the united states at risk and seattle is within the range of this missile what's interesting here is that north korea is now saying that it has reached its goal this signals that maybe no further tests are needed and it's judgment and if so that's a good thing because we've been worried the next evolution might be a nuclear test in the pacific that would be very very provocative. now u.s. president donald trump has shed and he muslim videos posted by a far right activist group is twitter account retreated three separate videos posted by jay de france and the deputy leader of the person first movement white house correspondent kimberly halakhic joins us now from washington d.c.
8:07 pm
and the reaction here is certainly been one of shock and condemnation what's the white house now saying about this. however the white house is defending the president's right to share these videos on his twitter account fact well they are on verified and the white house won't point to where the president may have gotten these they're certainly defending the fact that he has sent them out saying that the president has highlighted what he believes are real threats that need to be talked about whether the videos are real or not the threat is real according to sara sanders the white house press secretary as she further went on to say that this is just another extension of the president's agenda which is to promote strong borders but it has received widespread condemnation in the united states very quickly the. largest muslim civil rights group in the united states care in fact condemned the president's actions calling the videos islamophobia and incitement to violence against muslims and as well of course we've had the spokesperson for the
8:08 pm
british prime minister teresa mayes saying that in fact it's the belief of that office that it was wrong to reach week these videos and we've even had a member of congress a democrat in the house of representatives in just the last hour or so hitting the floor of that chamber to call for an expiration date on hate saying in fact that there should be an impeachment vote on the floor of the house of representatives before christmas saying that hate emanating from the presidency the solution is in his view impeachment. committee this isn't a fust time the u.s. president has made comments that you wouldn't necessarily expect about a group of people comments which have sparks control the sand scandal how surprising. is the fact that he's retreated these videos. i think for many particularly in the media and here in the united states it's not that surprising at this point you have to remember donald trump as
8:09 pm
a candidate called for a complete and total ban on the muslims entering the united states that was completely shocking and yet donald trump was elected and became president and one of the first policies we saw was the. putting in place through executive order of his travel ban which many say targeted through its policies muslim majority countries and with a thinly veiled muslim ban on travelers entering the united states the white house has denied this repeatedly but certainly the president has a history of calling out what he believes is islamic violence he has repeatedly used the phrase we're talking about eisel we're talking about al qaida saying radical islamic terrorism and as recently as even a month ago blamed in a tweet the uptick in violence in the united kingdom on radical islamic terrorism so certainly many have found this offensive not just recently but for some time certainly it is inflammatory the white house is defending it but at the end of the
8:10 pm
day this is not new for donald trump and millions of americans share his views and help him become president so putting it into context for us can be out at the white house. as kimberly was explaining their trump straits of also provoked a strong reaction online just to give you a flavor of what's been coming out t.v. personality and presenter piers morgan responded by asking trump what he's doing retreat in britain first a group he describes as a bunch of disgustingly racist far right extremist but ish politician and labor m.p. david lammy is also accuse the us president of promoting a fascist racist extremist hate group he continues trump is not an ally or friend of ours and the husband of british politician joe cox who was murdered by a far right supporter in two thousand and sixteen as also condemned the retreats writing trump as legitimize the far right in his own country now he's trying to do it in hours moving on a former bosnian croat military leader has died after drinking poison at a u.n.
