this is their life and it was a coming up. run and russia defend the iranian nuclear deal while u.s. president ponders reimposing sanctions. protests continue in tunisia against austerity measures more than two hundred people are arrested while the prime minister conned. a mudslides and flooding street where homes in california at least a dozen people are killed with many more missing. understood international is calling for an independent investigation into suspected atrocities by me and my military follows the army's admission for the first time that its soldiers murdered ten muslim rangar their remains were found in a mass grave in the western rakhine state last month the army's commander in chief says action will be taken against the soldiers involved a crackdown was launched by the military against the rangar community in late
august scott hyder is live for us in bangkok this is a reversal for the military isn't it scott. it is ginia back in november they issued an internal investigation as to what happened in rakhine state and. sees me august and september after there are rebel attacks on some military posts in rakhine states and then we had this very very heavy handed crackdown for the weeks that followed the military coming under a lot of criticism obviously and weeks after that by the international community because of eyewitness accounts of atrocities so they did their own investigation they said and the outcome of that they announced back in november said that there was no wrongdoing by their soldiers on the ground in rakhine state obviously that is reversed by the statements that we're seeing now on facebook from the commander in chief's facebook page saying that there was wrongdoing that their soldiers were involved in the murdering of ten the hinge in rakhine state and on earth in this
mass grave so a reversal of some sorts in that report from that report saying that and they say their worst was no wrongdoing now saying yes in fact some of the soldiers were involved in the killing of ten ranger and is likely to raise or appease international consent. definitely were i would say raise international concern obviously it could be viewed as a favorable that the military is now saying that yes there were some elements within their ranks they were carrying out going wrong doings ranging from obviously murders here but also a lot of accusations more serious accusations so yes it's a probably viewed as a good thing because the army is coming forward with statements and evidence that yes there were some wrongdoings but what's interesting is that how things move forward from here is this the tip of the iceberg is this all that the army is going to say that their soldiers carried out when it comes to wrongdoings because it's
such a closed situation in rakhine they have an independent investigators that's we heard amnesty international calling for they've been calls for that for the months since these atrocities supposedly took place but this is the first time the military said that yes there are some within their ranks that there wrongdoings but obviously it's going to increase the international call for access to rakhine because it's been so very limited for independent investigators from international bodies like united nations but also for journalists it's very very restricted so until independent investigators and reporting can be done inside there's always going to be i believe an international call for more access to thank you for that scott had that. european leaders are set to meet an iranian delegation ahead of a u.s. deadline to reaffirm the twenty fifteen year russia confirmed its support on wednesday when its foreign minister lavrov met iranian counterpart a reef in moscow the iranian delegation is now in brussels to meet helped broker
the deal the agreement needs to be signed off every ninety days and the u.s. president has until friday to decide if he'll re impose sanctions. as the deadline for the iran nuclear deal approaches the world's once again second guessing trumps next move. is taking over the middle east the us president's repeatedly threatened to tear up the agreement that was so far he's reluctantly kept it alive. it was a moment in international diplomacy seven countries signed the agreement at a time of heightened tensions across the region some of iran's neighbors have been talking about a possible military strike against the country. iran's made no secret of its arsenal of russian ballistic missiles israel and washington's middle eastern allies feared it also had an active nuclear weapons program. iran insisted its nucular
agenda was purely civilian but under the deal it agreed to end research in return for the partial lifting of sanctions allowing it to access global financial markets and crucially sell its oil. as part of america's commitment to the deal congress requires the u.s. president to confirm every ninety days that iran's up holding its part of the agreement trumps recertified the deal several times so far but things could be about to change last october he announced a new iran policy iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal i am announcing a new strategy to address the full range of iran's destructive actions it's a strategy many iranians believe is motivated simply by trump's growing support for israel i think on the tram u.s. and israeli interests are closely aligned and i think trans main problem but iran
is that the class of for that simple reason so for that reason i would also add that should iran and israel's relationship improve which is not on the horizon any time soon you would see major changes in the wrong with. trump's refusing to recertify the deal until congress amends it he's called for sanctions on iran's revolutionary guard which he described as a corrupt personal terror force of iran's leader he also wants to extend time limits on the country's nuclear research and could tell its missile program but as congress didn't draw up the deal it's not down to them to change it any alterations it makes with the president would be in breach of the international agreement. it leaves donald trump with two choices recertify the deal and keep it alive reject the deal violate the agreement and almost inevitably trigger an international crisis needs parker. demonstrators rallied in brussels on wednesday head of the
