1:02 am
a news conference in which she accused iran of quote fanning the flames of conflict in the region she says to her hands applied to the rebels in yemen with a missile that the group fired into saudi arabia this is a blatant violation of what they are not supposed to be doing and what we are saying is everybody has to total around iran in fear of them getting out of the nuclear deal and they are allowing missiles like this to be fired over to innocent civilians and hurt and that is what has to stop and so we will continue to raise and build the international community support to say this is not about the nuclear deal this is about all other actions and the president will work with congress on how do we go forward in dealing with iran at this one in this way but the nuclear deal is not something that we're focused on now it's focusing on the threat that iran is posing as we know it was and jordan has more now from washington. well people are simply saying that this is just a continuation of the trumpet ministrations offer it's to put increased pressure on
1:03 am
iran from the very beginning the administration has been very suspicious of iran's oil compliance with the nuclear deal that was a negotiated and proxy fruition at the end of two thousand and thirteen it's the it's a deal which the president donald trump has always said basically has too many loopholes for iran to get around the restrictions of the deal and to continue not just trying to build a nuclear weapons program but to also basically allow it to put no send weapons to other groups to other countries across the region and thus he stabilize it so the perception is that this is simply part of the administration's efforts to put more pressure on iran and perhaps indirectly try to scrap the nuclear deal once and for all. is the director of golf as in government relations in the middle east institute he says iran's actions have escalated tensions in the region well i think
1:04 am
what there are has been is a growing concern about iran's continued support for the hooty we've known for least five years that the iranians have been sending materiel as well as training and assistance support to the who tease but the launching of a missile against riyadh is an escalation and a clear demonstration that the iranians are not only not trying to help resolve this three year old conflict but in fact they're trying to expand and deepen it. united states is going to overturn net neutrality rules eliminating the regulations which ensure a free and open internet the u.s. federal communications commission voted to undo the obama era legislation being large corporations can pay internet service providers to prioritize their websites and even block competitors and he got to has more from washington d.c.
1:05 am
. well this vote now essentially takes the power of the internet away from being a consumer oriented service and puts it firmly in the hands of the internet service providers it is a very controversial decision because net neutrality meant that the internet was a level playing field that everybody could have access everybody could have their say and in theory that has now changed dramatically by getting rid of net neutrality internet service providers can potentially charge more they could even ban certain websites and if you are under represented member of the community let's say your black lives matter and you want to organize and get information out to the people that you represent it may be much harder right now but this is been a deeply unpopular move eighty three percent of americans are against ending net neutrality something like twenty million took to the internet to sign petitions and i think this is all set the stage for a huge legal challenges in the next few months the a.c.l.u. of announce that they will sue or with this decision district attorneys from across
1:06 am
the country have announced that they will also pursue legal challenges so although this is a very controversial decision it's a very deeply unpopular decision on the one that will face many much time in court lots of legal challenges and all of this could drag on for months if not years. and now at least nine thousand range of muslims died or were killed in the month a military crackdown in myanmar that's according to the aid group doctors without borders this is the highest estimated death toll yet in a conflict the u.n. has described as ethnic cleansing according to their report most of the deaths were caused by gunshot wounds other victims were burned alive inside houses or were beaten to death mohammed june imports doctors without borders estimate that nine thousand roll hinges died in the month that followed the start of the military
1:07 am
crackdown in me and more which began in late august most of the rohinton who died were killed violently. the estimate contrasts sharply with me in mars government total it said four hundred refugees were killed that month. doctors without borders says their estimate is conservative and the actual total is likely to be far higher we have published the most conservative fake arish we had. and if you look at the surf a.v. did the interview with more than twelve thousand people which were randomly sampled from a fallacious of six hundred thousand we have heard stories of complete families which were killed so we believe that yes this number is what the belief is the lower range and our saying it's actually higher in reality the doctors without borders report states that at least nine thousand rohinton died mostly violently in iraq and state between august twenty fifth and september twenty fourth some of these
1:08 am
atrocities according to the refugees we talked to are commits it's by military by police but local military forces and nation if that will and we still talk to people who have just arrived in the last few weeks who are still tilting about fire lines which affected them in the last two weeks so this is only going at least six hundred twenty thousand row him to refugees fled to bangladesh from rakhine state since fighting started between me and more government security forces and rohinton gunman on august twenty fifth. army commanders in myanmar say troops responded to coordinated attacks on border posts by a rebel armed group they've consistently maintained no what trost of these were committed the u.n. however has called the army's actions against the rohinton a campaign of ethnic cleansing. research by doctors without borders also reveals at least seven hundred thirty rohinton children below the age of five years old were violently killed in that first month. in the saying these numbers are staggering

1:20 am
would as most of the world had predicted in the first round less than a month ago to have an easy win but that hasn't been the case in fact what doug election showed the first round is that chileans want more reporters not less and this is what they were asked to get up to adjust his program significantly in order to win over some of these people or at least some of the people who are still in doubt when they go to the polls on sunday but these people here are feeling triumphant it is not going to be very close. thank you very much i know you'll be watching it all for us that's going to be a nail biter second round as we go into sunday finale scene even in santiago thank you the syrian government has been criticized for failing to engage in direct negotiations at the un brokered talks in geneva the un syria and boy called on russia to play a greater role in convincing its ally president bashar assad to accept a new constitution and elections on the syrian opposition appealed for the international community to do more to pressure the government to engage the

1:23 am
around a third of those those cases have been settled already out of court but there was still over six hundred cases remaining unresolved including the four that were judged on on thursday and it's expected that this judgment will actually set a precedent for some of the other cases because there were similar legal issues at stake and it's clear that beyond this there is the possibility of cases against british soldiers in iraq going on for many years because just recently the chief prosecutor at the international criminal court in their hague said that there were reasonable grounds to believe that there were abuses committed by british soldiers in iraq. the u.k. prime minister to resign may has been meeting european union leaders in brussels a day after a defeat on breaks it at home on wednesday night parliament backed an amendment giving them a legal guarantee of a vote on the final brights
