6:38 am
of south korea this wednesday morning giving an instruction that south korea should be working more with china on what is seen here as a shared problem it's thought a lot of this pollution comes from deserts in china with the fine dust being sucked up into the atmosphere mixing with pollution from factories and power stations and then being pushed by the prevailing winds just far enough to cover the korean peninsula but not strong enough to take it any further so sophisticated cities like seoul having to wait for a change in the wind direction before it can get a breath of fresh air. after nations from the champions league and the restless fought over to joe. lauren thank you paris sentiment are on the verge of going through to the champions league quarter finals despite trailing to munches seen ninety five minutes of their round of sixteen game remaining in

6:40 am
blamed with some saying the region's unusually wet and cold winter has damaged it earlier we spoke to daily racing form journalist jay proven who told al jazeera the problem may lie with the way the track is being managed. but i've spoken to a number of trainers right now their main thought is just trying to figure out how they're going to keep their horses training for races that they had expected to ride and they're obviously concerned over what has gone are but i do know that a number of trainers top traders hall of fame trainers have continued to work their horses over the surface and that to me is indicative of people who don't believe that the root cause of this is solely the surface because i can't imagine that they would be jeopardizing the health of their horses and their top quality forces by consistently working over a track that they thought have extreme underlying issues with it but i think there
6:41 am
are other factors that have contributed to the situation here there's pressure that has been put on trainers to run more the track has tried to run more races per day than they have in years past and i think the cumulative effect of some of those things have contributed to the situation. the formula one season gets underway in a matter of weeks but human rights groups have criticized f one management for looking the other way at a pieces carried out in bahrain the country house this season second rice human rights watch is concerned about the case of activist nature and. if he was jailed for three years after criticising the rice and social media in two thousand and seventeen in a lesser form when one says that the bahamian government assured them present had nothing to do with criticising the crime pre well they went on we were assured that anyone who mainly criticised or continues to criticize formula one in bahrain is free to don't do so can say whatever they want and would be left alone to do so
6:42 am
from when one is committed to respecting internationally recognised human rights and its operations globally. i am. middle east research at human rights watch she is highly critical of formula one's response their response formula one's response is a clear indication that they have not taken this case reset this case very seriously the fact that they're relying on assurances from the bahamian government that no punitive measures will be will be taken against activists and that. conviction and sentence had nothing to do with her peaceful opposition to the formula one races is just false and all the evidence points to the contrary so in a restaurant heard one week after she released a series of posts critical of holding the formula one racism but then we reviewed we human rights watch reviewed the evidence that the public prosecutions submitted against and found that they relied very very heavily on her social media
6:43 am
posts opposing the holding of the one with one verses and back then as well as calling for marches to release to release the protesters that have been imprisoned due to their role in opposing reform without one races and formula one has also seen the court judgement and that's why they raised their concerns with the back in the government in the first place and so relying on baseless assurances by the bahamian government that the charges have nothing to do with the. opposition to the theorists this is false and they have seen the evidence claiming otherwise for me no one should publicly call on the bahamian government to drop the charges against most national himself that are related to her exercising her right to free speech and they should also use their leverage with the bahamian government to pressure them to conduct an investigation into her allegations of torture and of treatment

and what the officers were subjected heard that the treatment to account was only a couple of months ago that andy murray broke down in taiz in australia fairing a hip injury could end his tennis career with a second operation behind him the three time grand slam champion is tentatively targeting the doubles competition at wimbledon this year and he says he's feeling much better about the future. i'm in no pain when i'm walking around and stuff so you know that was the reason for having that the operation the first place so i feel there's still a lot happier and much in myself. on a daily basis yeah it was pretty good take us back to the cheerful press conference because you must have been a a very low point to speak like that to speak about the interview career you know but i was struggling you know i was struggling for a long time and you could see that in just the way i was walking around in terms of you know limping it everywhere i was going so it was it was tough enough to ask i'm so sick kind of spoke from my heart a little bit and kind of opened up and it been been tough kind of eighteen months
6:45 am

6:49 am
on our intended this is our jazeera live from london also coming up a record breaking trade deficit the new data which reveals the u.s. trade deficit has hit a ten year high. germany extends its ban on sending weapons to saudi arabia despite pressure from european allies to end it. the european commission declares the migration crosses over but says structural problems within europe still remain. a u.s. president donald trump has responded to reports that north korea has begun work to restore our space rocket launch site just days after talks with kim jong un ended in failure he said he would be very disappointed if they were true satellite images appear to reveal that buildings at the site in the north west of the country have been rebuilt it's
6:50 am
a very early report we're the ones that put it out but i would be very very disappointed in germany and i don't think i will be but we'll see what happens we'll take a look it will ultimately get solved. the pledge to dismantle aside had been seen as a confidence building measure between pyongyang and washington and actually o'brien reports. these satellite images appear to show north korea's rocket launch site the web site thirty eight north which specializes in studying the reclusive state says they show efforts to rebuild between february sixteenth and march second. and those dates put it right around last week's summit in vietnam that's where u.s. president donald trump walked away saying he couldn't meet kim jong un's demands to lift sanctions analysts say this could be punching back the north koreans haven't actually used it for a long range test missiles they've used it in past for satellite launches which
6:51 am
a lot of people say for double as missile tests but they haven't actually sort of formally used for missile tests and it's not necessarily clear that the rebuild is actually leading up to that my own sense is that this is sort of peek at the way donald trump treated them in north korea are in vietnam this into the strategic and international studies says the images show rapid rebuilding at a site partly dismantled last year when p.r. nyang entered talks with the u.s. and south korea here if you're reading you right it's not immediately clear though how the satellite images could have fixed the fragile nuclear diplomacy. that japan has its eyes fixed on north korea's nuclear missile development have been gathering and analyzing information i will refrain from commenting in detail due to the nature of the matter. how much you know would you change under the current situation we hope that all related parties can take the right approach to

6:54 am
a ten year six hundred twenty one billion dollar high their numbers not seen since the global financial crisis of two thousand and eight that means quite simply that the united states imports far more goods and services worldwide that it sells this despite promises made by the u.s. president on the campaign trail in two thousand and sixteen that his policies would put america first in the global marketplace the u.s. is currently embroiled in a tit for tat trade war with china posing tariffs on more than two hundred fifty billion of chinese goods china hit back with tariffs on a hundred ten billion of us products as the two sides continue to negotiate trump has delayed his threat to impose tariffs on two hundred billion more of chinese imports in the u.s. and in september the white house released this video arguing the tariffs have already had a positive impact we're changing things and we're changing them fast but the
