pyongyang is forging ahead with its nuclear program and evading sanctions on a massive scale. and bail is denied in zimbabwe fall position members charged with inciting post-election violence. we begin in israel where there's been a huge protest led by the druze community against the controversial nation state law which defines israel as a jewish state and downgrades the arabic language tens of thousands climbed into televisa are being square on saturday waving flags and holding signs calling for the bill to be revote it's the first time in recent history that the troops who are considered fiercely loyal to the state of staged a large protest. this will be cherished should be changed over the citizen is that i am. not to accept something else. because we are citizen bit doc said of
army dude i want to do two year and we expect from the co the government will look to us like everybody i mean israeli jew i'm originally from the united states i'm trying to stand with my jewish brothers and sisters for equality because everyone deserves a fair chance and safety and opportunity our masses that is that we're all equal ok so where we want equal rights for everyone for drew is for jewish people for. the t.v. people for everyone. well israel's druze community feel deeply betrayed by the law that they say cost them a second class citizens the injuries are an arabic speaking group with their own distinct religious and cultural traditions they make up two percent of israel's population and found mainly in the northern galilee in carmel regions as israel's most integrated minority the druze take part in military service around six out of ten men have served in the israeli armed forces more now from andrew symonds who
was at that protest. it's rare for the druze to protest in public at all and these are extraordinary numbers at one stage robin square was packed with people right now three hours in there are still many people here and not all of them groups jewish people young people old people not only the labor and the other left wing parties trail represented here but ordinary folk coming in off the street have the guts to listen. as far as the jews are concerned they are adamant that this law has to be changed radically or ditched i traveled to page john in northern galilee to find out what the people were saying on the ground. some of his from a minority excluded by israel in its nation state law she's a druze arab and her two sons were killed during military service is ruined.
she makes a promise. that if this law doesn't change i will get your bodies exuma in this military cemetery and bury you in your grandfather's land. back home is her youngest son yeah i mean his brothers fouad who was eighteen and twenty three year old sylar gave compulsory service in the military yamin became a prison officer in an israeli jail and he says that experience changed his perspective he became a human rights lawyer and activists for palestinians in the occupied west bank. i feel sad in the blood of my brothers was cheered and crying for a lie in an illusion they may have thought the military would give them rights but this law just proves that israel used them like mysterious. the druze are in all ranks for example major general communal abu rukun is the new coordinator of
operations in the occupied territories there is no public comment from him any soldier showing dissent is suspended. we ask the soldiers and officers not to get involved in this law and to depend on us to refund his delegation were given the promise of a new law giving benefits to minorities in the military but back in beit jan and elsewhere that isn't enough most feel nothing short of scrapping the nation state law will do you can still sense the anger here despite political developments and questions about loyalty continue to reverberate one of them whether young people will still feel the same way about joining the israeli army. this form a soldier's loyalty is tested maj decal tb completed his military service before setting up a restaurant business now he doesn't want his son to become
a soldier. it's up to him but now i say military service shouldn't be compulsory it's all a lie that we've been living for a long time and the nationality law made this very clear. bates jans dead soldiers make the feeling of betrayal here more potent more than sixteen names written in hebrew and below what now becomes an unofficial language arabic one of many measures in what most people in this village believe is a racist lol. the question now is how much more pressure could be put on the government will there be any change will it's highly unlikely that benjamin netanyahu will change his policies but then public pressure. there are further protests not only proves you represent two percent of the population but also the israeli arabs who represent twenty percent and then of course the option of more
possible demonstrations or the joining of demonstrations by jews is unclear no one knows really where this is going right now. when all the developments funerals have been held for two palestinians killed by israeli forces during protests on the gaza border on friday the. mourners carried the bodies of the fifteen year old and twenty five year old through gaza streets palestinians have been staging weekly border protest against israeli land confiscation for the past four months one hundred fifty seven palestinians have been killed in the protests. who see rebels in yemen as saying they've attacked the king holiday in southern saudi arabia using an armed drone heathy say they targeted a runway used by the saudi and emirate he led coalition to launch air strikes on

that kind of out on a toc or international airport something that was quickly didn't i buy you a officials if it is true that they've been cutting out these attacks it tells you that the who's the fight us up to the teeth and the so you equally should family believes that it's iran that is supplying the who fight us with these but weapons and one of the reasons why they're cutting out the talk on the city of they that and want the huth use to kate saying it is a port which they have been using to rearm themselves a u.n. report says north korea is still building nuclear weapons and engaging in illegal trade only in violation of international sanctions meanwhile the u.s. and north korea are still at odds over that disarmament deal in jordan reports on a more diplomatic tensions around in pyongyang's nuclear ambitions. north korea
promised the u.s. in june that it was committed to ridding the peninsula of all nuclear weapons but experts monitoring north korea's disarmament efforts have just given the un security council a report saying kim jong own is breaking his promise and violating other international sanctions in the process the expert's report says the north continues to build nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and it's still illegally trading in oil coal textiles and weapons it's also making deals the report says with who the fighters in yemen the syrian government and libyan rebels at the all see on security forum in singapore u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o told reporters it's clear the north koreans are violating international sanctions including the complete shutdown of illegal ship to ship transfers of petroleum destined for north korea we have seen reports that russia is allowing for joint ventures with north korean firms and granting new

so you've been very skeptical all along about north korea in stepping up to in. the spirit of its commitments that has articulated over the last few months the expert's report on north korea has not been officially released but the linked report is raising new questions about whether people in yong is serious about giving up its nuclear weapons program and about whether the international community has the will and the ability to make it do so rosalyn jordan al-jazeera at the united nations brazil's jailed formally to louise and asio minute to silver's been nominated as the candidate for his work as party in october's presidential election unless karr is having twelve years in prison for money laundering and corruption poll suggests he remains the most popular leader in brazil. has more from sao paolo . from the outside many might be surprised that the former president who is now
