i can help them with lots of things but mrs ford to me the great thing is it's not just about museums about forming a new life is part of life it's culture news has never been more available it's a constant barrage of it with every day but the message is a simplistic you have been trained good logical rational person crazy months and misinformation is rife dismissal and does not well documented accusations and evidence is part of genocide the listening post provides a critical counterpoint challenging mainstream media narratives at this time on al-jazeera. we cannot and will not accept you as a nuclear state the u.s. secretary of state sends a message to north korea the new clear pyongyang is not acceptable.
10:01 pm

10:03 pm
the list stick missiles now you've heard from rex tillerson in that sound bite is the same kind of message that there can be no nuclear north korea but the tone is has been varying a very tough message from the united states as well as from japan but the south korean foreign minister neck has shown a more accommodating as it were indicating that there is a possibility of trying to build on the recent opening around the upcoming winter olympic games only if north korea does something about its nuclear weapons program so more of an all of branch from south korea rather than simply saying we have to change the status quo in sight north korea and to rosa say two key players are not that russia and that's china they're not happy about this meeting getting ahead of an old so what can i hope to achieve without them. well
10:04 pm
there is a lot of skepticism about whether this meeting which does not involve the u.n. security council writ large because russia and china aren't here actually has any effectiveness that people have been it pains to try to figure out when the so-called human sending states those of the countries that supported south korea during the korean war between one thousand fifty and fifty three actually got together to discuss security issues on the peninsula this may well be the first time since the end of the actual conflict and so there are real questions about whether these countries which traditionally have not been involved in these type of high level diplomatic discussions on north korea can actually bring new ideas to the table as well as trying to generate some momentum in terms of trying to resolve
10:05 pm
the crisis ultimately analysts we've been speaking to suggest that this is going to simply come back to the united nations to the security council to really push for some sort of ultimate solution to this crisis with our road thanks very much indeed that's a picture in vancouver rose children reporting. the saudi led coalition in fighting the heathy rebels in yemen says it will allow for cranes at the port of her data to begin operation cranes bolt's with the us funds will be used to offload basic necessities such as food and medicine and as mohammed jenji reports that aid cannot come soon enough. amid the worst humanitarian crisis in the world what could be a sliver of hope these four to donald cranes which have just arrived at her data

10:07 pm
stresses however that while aid is arriving in yemen it's not coming quick enough. in the city of tire is dozens of protesters demonstrated against what they said is government negligence government leaders are accused of failing to control the collapse of the national currency or protect yemenis from rising food prices the companies that you money do need is not enough these i found out and said can you even so many different agencies get enough fuel and crude and meant it for the whole country what we need to use for pollution what's that got me and then let will those inside the fish. the poorest country in the middle east is facing multiple crises the worst cholera epidemic ever recorded and a diptheria outbreak that is spreading quickly in a country with some of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world and where more than eight million people are on the brink of famine a new report by unicef details how children have been scarred by war and says that
10:08 pm
since the escalation of the conflict in march two thousand and fifteen three million children have been born in yemen that's approximately three thousand every day unicef says more than eleven million yemeni children need humanitarian assistance just one of the many reasons why few believe the suffering of the yemeni people will end any time soon. to know where pope francis is express what he's called his pain and his shame over the country's sexual abuse scandal it is the first time he's commented on the crisis running a former priest who was found guilty in two thousand and eleven of abusing teenage boys came before he held an outdoor mass in the capital santiago from there is a lot of america to use in human. chilean catholics and immigrants from many parts of latin america spent the night here for the chance to see pope francis helps me get you know there at the beginning it was worth it i love this point
10:09 pm
because he underscores the need for social justice which our political parties have forgotten. this isn't the largest park and organizers calculated four hundred thousand people came to the pope's first mass in chile less than half of the estimated one million who attended pope john paul the second's mass here thirty one years ago during chile's military dictatorship but those were different times back then john paul's mass was interrupted when riot police began firing massive amounts of tear gas into the crowd to disperse those who were protesting against human rights abuses and calling for the pope's support which they thought three decades on chileans are still thinking about abuses but this time those committed by the church. so pope francis wasted no time confronting the issue in his first address here at the presidential palace he asked for forgiveness for clerical sex abuses against innocent minors. here i feel
10:10 pm
bound to express my pain and shame the irreparable damage caused to children by some ministers of the church and. i am one with my brother bishops for it is right to ask for forgiveness and make every effort to support the victims even as we commit ourselves to ensuring that such things do not happen again. this if we do many will be holding him to his word because a lot of that has to be correct or forgiveness is necessary but abuses have to be fought for every day no matter what the song during the mass the pope spoke of peace before leaving to meet women prisoners on tuesday he's into the most complex stop of his trip it's the epicenter of a restive territorial dispute by indigenous my pooches a place where chileans are hoping that his message of peace and reconciliation will
10:11 pm
be heard you see in human santiago. chile and police arrested dozens of protesters near where the pope celebrated mass they were marching towards you can square occurring and to church placards the police fired tear gas before moving in to make the arrests. the dow jones industrial average has raced poncy twenty six thousand for the first time in history the peak appears to show rising rising economic optimism under us president donald trump carol is under a small. whether it be here in the u.s. or abroad the first year of president donald trump's time in office has been beset by controversies and setbacks he's one of the least popular presidents in modern times with his approval ratings in the thirty's to at best low forty's but one area where trump has seen a lot of success is right here at the stock market many people saying the u.s.
10:12 pm
economy as a whole is roaring like a freight train now the dow is one of the oldest and most watched economic indicators anywhere in the world it's the weighted average of thirty significant stocks traded on the new york stock exchange and nasdaq it's been around for over one hundred in twenty years and the dow has reached twenty six thousand points for the first time ever shortly after trading began on tuesday and it's a signal of the strong health of the stock market and the u.s. economy as a whole the g.d.p. growth is up and unemployment is down the stock market started making gains shortly after trump took office on his promise to cut regulations that hinder economic growth and he's done just that cutting hundreds of regulations in the last year and now the markets are responding positively to trump's tax reform legislation which is promising huge tax cuts to corporations and seen as
10:13 pm
a gift to wall street add it all up and the dow has shot up more than forty percent since trump became president further helping is that crude prices are up to some of the highest prices in the past three years driven up by production cuts by opec and strong demand fueled by economic growth but going back to the dow in the stock market while without a doubt it is seeing record gains it is mostly benefiting the rich and well connected millions of americans are seeing no or very little effect from it or only one third of the bottom fifty percent of wage earners have stocks in many ways this is a search that's a lot about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. so to come on the program the problem kosovo's politician who was standing trial for war crimes shot dead outside his office. in the deal to repatriate hundreds of thousands of or
10:14 pm
hindu refugees is missing a lot of details. hello there we've got a big old storm system that's in store for europe at the moment is already pretty blustery am pretty wintery over the northwestern parts you can see of the speckled cloud here that's plenty of snow showers that have been rattling in on some very very strong winds but if we head through the next few days we'll see what's in store for us so this is wednesday then strong winds yet more of those showers but as we head through wednesday and into thursday see this system here galloping its way eastwards that's developing feature we'll see winds while over one hundred thirty kilometers per hour as a system borrows its way towards the east so very strong winds on that and also some very heavy snow even some parts of the u.k. are likely to have around twenty centimeters of snow from it as it crashed the
10:15 pm
edges its way eastward so i'm a just system here there are likely to be reports of power outages and trees down as well for the eastern parts of europe generally a lot quieter here but we do have this weather system here this bringing us some rather intense outbreaks of snow as we head through thursday for the northern parts of africa generally a lot quieter for us here we have had a little bit of rain in the far western parts about geria but that's all fizzling out now and we're just seeing a little bit more in the way of clouds roll the breezy though so that we could be picking up a fair amount of sand and dust in hades. the controversial leader of islamic jihad focused on the most wanted internists in history is really coming to terms on his alleged extra judicial killings by israeli intelligence and aside the sense of being caught in the mask was the outcome is only death if someone tried to. talk to the media syrian intelligence was shut down
10:16 pm
the borders kill him in damascus at this time on al-jazeera world. ever get a reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera and u.s. secretary of state bret phillips says a nuclear north korea is not acceptable he made the comments at a meeting in canada is looking at ways to implement u.n. sanctions imposed on. the saudi led coalition fighting the heathy rebels in yemen says it will allow for cranes at the port of poti to to begin operation cranes were aboard with u.s. funds and will be used to offload basic necessities such as food and medicine. pope
10:17 pm
francis has expressed what he's called his pain and shame of the abuse of children by priests in chile it is the first time he's commented on the scandal involving a former priest found guilty of abusing teenage boys. donald trump's former chief strategist has been subpoenaed to testify on possible russia collusion in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election understood that steve benen will be required to testify before a grand jury but it was recently quoted in a book saying that trump's son in law son son in law and campaign chairman met with a group of russians during the two thousand and sixteen campaign describing it as treasonous live to our white house correspondent can be how it can be tell us more of what you know about this right well it really marks a bit of a game changer in the ongoing investigation into potential trump ties and tom campaign ties with russia and here's why it's likely that steve bannon will never
10:18 pm
actually testify before the grand jury but instead this is a bit of a strong arm negotiating tactic by robert muller essentially what this could be is a bargaining chip look steve bam if you cooperate with us you ask investigators questions you won't have to go through the jury trial proceedings so essentially this could be very problematic for the president at the same time we've learned that the subpoena came out last week but we're only learning about it as of today we do know the timing is rather interesting given the fact that steve benen is testifying up on capitol hill before a house intelligence committee that's also doing a similar rush of probe steve bannon said nothing about the subpoena for the special counsel when he went into this all day affair of questioning but it's certain he will be asked about it by reporters on his way out kerry did mention that this could be problematic for the president especially considering of course their relationship which is all reveled in recent weeks. right you touched on it to
10:19 pm
nick at the beginning of the segment when you referenced that meeting in june of two thousand and sixteen between donald trump jr and kremlin linked lawyer where there was the promise of some sort of incriminating or damaging information on presidential candidate trump's contender at the time hillary clinton who was his of course rival later on we know that junior called this meeting a waste of time but we know in that book fire and fury that in fact steve bannon called the meeting in and of itself to be treasonous but of course also to the president has been name calling steve bannon saying was forced out of the white house on social media he said essentially that steve bennett had lost his mind well certainly the relationship has unraveled that could be some incentive for steve benen to do some talking as well to this is certainly frustrating the white house given the fact that the investigation continues one that they have said repeatedly will be wrapped up by thanksgiving will be wrapped up by christmas well it's still
10:20 pm
ongoing so there's that and also to there is the fact that the president is still frustrated this is is going he is recently as this morning was tweeting in fact calling this investigation once again a hoax and also name calling the journalist covering it basically once again saying that those who reported the story were simply part of the fake news media oracularly things very much they can be like a reporter from washington the. u.s. so calling for calm of your problem because of and politician was shot dead president described the killing of a live event which as an act of terrorism at a meeting in brussels between kosovo and serbia was brutally cold all for news of the shooting in britain as its report the yellow forensic markers show where all of the event of a tree fell in the sixty four year old shot at least five times outside his party headquarters in the town of me true. he was rushed to hospital but doctors couldn't
10:21 pm
save him. the killing appears well planned with no witnesses and the speculation a silencer may have muffle the sound of the gunshots and avoided drawing attention but the repercussions were quickly felt all across europe in the serbian capital belgrade the country's president and prime minister convened the national security council was sort of. the state of serbia considers this act an act of terrorism and we were treated as such to the costs of an government also convened its security council and warned against speculating about motive. shows us for us this was a shock for all of us particularly for kosovo so it is very important that as soon as possible we have the answer on who did this and in brussels as news of the murder emerged the latest round of e.u. mediated talks between serbia and kosovo one of broccoli called off its source of paramount importance is that the situation remains calm anything important at all
10:22 pm
sites and a show of restrain so that the rule of law and justice can take its course despite serbia losing control of kosovo after the one nine hundred ninety nine war some fifty thousand ethnic serbs still live in northern kosovo and the town of mitrovica remains starkly divided between serb and ethnic albanian areas after the war all over event of each came to prominence as a relative moderate among the mainly ultra nationalist kosovo serb leadership he was a central figure in the post-war talks involving nato the un and the e.u. . in two thousand and sixteen though he was convicted of war crimes linked to the killings of four ethnic albanians a retrial was ordered last year and at the time of his death if an of age was actually free on bail in july his car was set on fire and no one was injured now his murder raises serious tensions in a region where entity's were already delicately balanced twelve thousand dollar reward has been offered for information leading to the kilis. paul brennan al
