7:10 am
president we want to. we want to remain this repressive government the people of honduras have woken up and we are tired of what's been done to us over the last eight years. there's a large military presence in the city enforcing a strict six p.m. curfew the hundred military's response to a wave of violence and looting that gripped the country in recent days at least three people were killed and dozens others injured it's now been a week since the general election and while peace has returned to the city the concern remains that as long as the political limbo continues violence could spark up once again. that was he got the. former egyptian prime minister ahmed says he is still considering a presidential bid although he says he needs to explore the option for sure feet made the comments on egyptian television his first appearance since arriving in cairo on saturday last week while in the united arab emirates he announced he was

intending to run in next year's election a few hours later he issued another video statement saying he was not free to travel as family said they feared he'd been kidnapped has since denied the u.a.e. is a strong supporter of egypt's incumbent leader of the fatah sisi. the palestinian authority is calling for emergency talks over the possibility of the u.s. embassy in israel being moved from tel aviv to jerusalem the arab league and the organization of islamic cooperation are being asked to host the meeting israel's government considers all of jerusalem its capital while the palestinians hope that east jerusalem will be the capital of their future state palestinian president mahmoud abbas is warning of a new dangerous phase if the u.s. moves its embassy and recognizes jerusalem as israel's capital on the u.s. president has to decide on monday whether to issue
7:12 am
a waiver of that twenty two year old law requiring the state department to move the embassy the waiver has to be renewed every six months trump son in law and white house adviser says the president is still weighing up the matter he's still looking at a lot of different facts and then when he makes his decision. he'll be the one to want to tell you not me so. i'll make sure he does that at the right time. trump is expected to announce his decision in a speech on wednesday israel's communications minister says the doubts from will send a clear signal to the world i mean. i think that the u.s. president donald trump knows and understands the needs of the region by validating jerusalem is the eternal united capital of the state of israel it's something that declared and wanted and i think by implementing it you sending an important message . a lot of friedman is president of the foundation for middle east peace she says moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem will only bring negative consequences the last time this came

up six months ago it was the intervention of king abdullah of jordan that had a significant impact on president trump's decision not to move the embassy that time it's possible this time if he hears again from king abdullah who is just in washington if he hears from the saudis i don't know what he needs to hear from the palestinians the palestinians are in a weaker position in washington right now than they have been it any time since one thousand nine hundred ninety four when their mission was reopened at the start of the peace process the closure of the potential closure of their mission here and now hangs on them responding positively to the president's efforts to bring them back to the table which is blackmail already it isn't at all clear to me what leverage they on their part have on this administration at this point. powers in the region may not care that much about the palestinians but their people do and jerusalem specifically is a red line because jerusalem touches on things that are much bigger than the
7:14 am
israeli palestinian conflict that has been the conventional wisdom for jordan this is a domestic issue jordan under its treaty with israel is the keeper of the holy sites in jerusalem so what happens there is a domestic issue for jordan for saudi which wants to play a bigger role do the saudi people care about what happens in jerusalem my personal analysis is that yes this makes a difference i don't know we'll see same with egypt the other piece of it is what happens on the ground you know the palestinians are working on reconciliation both fatah and hamas are are working very hard to show that they are relevant leaders and relevant in challenging israeli policies that are anathema to palestinian interests so my understanding is that fatah and hamas are already talking about what the joint the joint response would be if the announcement on wednesday is bad on jerusalem and what that really would mean on the ground in terms of

7:21 am
is how china would respond to a conventional weapons strike china we are only used. to retaliate against a nuclear strike but we have to admit there are internal debates some people want to see china to change its new care policy and treat conventional strike on its nuclear weapons as. a nuclear strike on china. four of china's neighbors are nuclear armed russia pakistan india and north korea recent evidence suggests that china may have unintentionally aided the north's nuclear missile program when it sold these trucks supposedly destined for the timber industry analysts say those same trucks seen here were later modified to carry and possibly launch the long range missiles north korea's been testing china in recent years
7:22 am
also so. having tried to shout shout cease to north korea and in those cases north korea provide aid and certificated to china pledging that these heavy trucks would only be used for nodding. unlike north korea china doesn't boast about being a nuclear power but a recent military parade in beijing was a potent reminder of its growing military strength a strength underpinned by a nuclear arsenal that experts say is now the world's fourth largest adrian brown al-jazeera beijing. next in our series we're taking a look at the potential health impact of nuclear strikes the u.s. tested its weapons at home before it eventually hit hiroshima and to this day the area where those tests happened are still experiencing high levels of cancer that

a very nice term to use to get attention and to get everybody on your side because you can be against terror as you can be for terrorism thousands of people have taken to the streets of hong kong protesting against what they call all for a tarion rule by china they're demanding the justice secretary's resignation over a crackdown on pro-democracy activists one of the leaders behind the occupy hong kong protests three years ago says he will continue to fight despite starting a jail sentence next week it's twenty five years since the first text message was sent to a mobile phone the service revolutionized not only how we communicate but modern language and technology to pull breland takes a look. twenty five years ago human communication changed forever in the u.k. a software engineer used his computer to send the first of a text message to a mobile phone just two words merry christmas it was the beginning of
7:28 am
a true revolution a revolution not just in technology but also in language and the way we communicate that first text message or s.m.s. showed that mobile phones were capable of much more than just voice calls today's smart phone apps have their origins all way back with that eureka moments of the first text of the limitations of s.m.s. inspired the heavily abbreviated new language and more recently the rise of the m o g now in two thousand and seven u.k. users sent sixty six billion text messages by two thousand and twelve it was one hundred fifty one billion but by twenty fifteen internet based tech services like whatsapp and messenger were overtaking s.m.s. and twenty fifteen what's happened messenger together handled sixty billion messages a day that's nearly three times more than the twenty three billion texts sent through s.m.s. and twitter of course a direct descendant of the original s.m.s. is now the world's window into the mind of the united states president so has the
7:29 am
text message had its day well perhaps but it'll never really disappear because in an emergency even if you've got no wife i know three g. connection you can still send a simple text or neil papworth was the software engineer who sent that first text message he's been speaking to us about his experience at the time. back then it was just it was just a day's work it was something i was paid to do you know by my company it's come down here show the software that we developed show that it works send a message and at the end of the day it works we were just doing what what we were meant to do and you know i i came away from there just just happy that what we try to do with work it's not you know i am i dreamed what were once true becoming today kind of thing we implemented that managed to get that first text back in december of ninety two and no it hasn't made me rich you know i wish i'd had like point zero
7:30 am
zero zero zero one of a penny for every text message that's been sent but unfortunately i don't so i think people are just going to still keep texting really i mean whatever media may use either a text on a phone or what's apple messenger. you know how much more do we need to. take to get over here you know the. great uses for texting or things like you know i'll be home in twenty minutes or i'm going to be late and why why do we need to make that more complicated you know now you've got there is you've got those great things on your phone where sometimes central message and and your phone is going to pick you one of three responses and it's like saying i'm going to be late you know it will be on the screen you just tap it once so i guess you know the apps are getting smarter but what's getting sent over the text messaging is you know i think it's pretty much going to remain the same.
