10:09 pm
this position because of his experience and skills in diplomacy by the president rouhani now these sanctions come a month after u.s. president donald trump signed an executive order protein putting the sanctions on the supreme leader and it's part of the u.s. policy of maximum pressure since they pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal last year so the questions are being raised here about who the u.s. actually wants to talk to. thanks very much. the united states is playing to north korea's latest missile tests state media in pyongyang says kim jong il and watched weapons days launch of 2 short range missiles the u.s. national security adviser says they don't violate a pledge to stop testing long range weapons rope mcbride has more for us from seoul . the weapons system north korea says it tested is very different to the 2 short range ballistic missiles 1st described by south korean officials on wednesday in an
10:10 pm
official statement from its state run news agency north korea says that it was in fact a multiple guided rocket launcher system a test that was overseen by north korean leader kim jong un he was said to be pleased with the test a system which it said would cause inescapable distress to whoever was on the receiving end the fact that it doesn't seem to be a ballistic missile makes it less of a provocation but it also seems to indicate that if a rocket could be mistaken for a missile then it does show a significant advance in north korea's rocket technology and still this is a system that would put much of south korea within range the timing of this test is still significant it comes just ahead of planned exercises between south korean and u.s. forces in its statements north korea made no specific reference to south korea but
10:11 pm
in another editorial wednesday it has criticized the south for so-called double dealing in being involved in these exercises meanwhile the u.s. national security advisor john bolton has been speaking on u.s. television playing down this test saying it doesn't break with kim jong un's promise that he made to donald trump not to test long range intercontinental ballistic missiles but as far as the working level talks are concerned that are meant to get under way between north korean and u.s. officials that they agreed on in their meeting on the d.m.z. a month ago he had no news on that saying it was up to north korea to respond that basically it was for them to make the next move. the u.s. secretary of state has criticized china for what he called its coercive behavior in the south china sea pump made those comments after meeting china's foreign minister in thailand mr pump is also meeting leaders from the asean regional organization in

bangkok it's the 1st stop in a weeklong trip that includes australia and micronesia scott hide from bangkok. in bangkok many different types of meetings taking place throughout the day foreign ministers of those 10 aussie on member nations meeting with a 3rd country foreign minister we had bilateral meetings between the united states and china but at the end of the day there really was no movement on any of the big issues being faced here in east asia and southeast asia what were discussed though were the big east south china sea territorial disputes the tension on the korean peninsula the trade war between the united states and china but none of those issues were really moved forward they were just brought up a lot of pleasantries people saying they want to continue working together but no real concrete action but interestingly later in the day u.s. secretary of state mike pompei i held a press conference and in that press conference a lot of these pleasantries but also some very strong words to china on its relationship with cambodia i want also to address something that came up in the
10:13 pm
u.s. ministerial meeting cambodia refuted reports that is allowing the chinese military installation to be built on its territory the united states welcomes cambodia's strong defense of its national sovereignty and we encourage other nations in the region to follow cambodia's lead and protecting it and the meetings will continue here on friday again a lot of bilateral meetings trilateral meetings but one meeting that is quite interesting it's actually a form of regional forum so all of these hundreds of diplomats who have gathered here in bangkok will meet under one roof. china is preventing many of its people from traveling to taiwan the decision to stop issuing travel permits will affect people from 47 mainland cities china views taiwan as a breakaway province and tensions between beijing and taipei have been rising in recent months when a mourner from shanghai. in the 1st half of this year more than $600000.00 people from china visited taiwan so this decision will certainly have an economic impact
10:14 pm
and that seems to be the motivation behind it to apply pressure on the government in taiwan led by a president sighing wind who very much opposes the one china principle we have the election to coming up in january next year and there's no doubt that the government in china would prefer to see a more pro beijing person in office in taipei the decision also comes after some fairly provocative events recently we had the latest arms sale announced by the united states to taiwan worth more than $2000000000.00 that certainly angered beijing there was a visit also by president sighing when to some caribbean nation some of the few countries that still have diplomatic relations with taiwan on her way there and back she stopped off in the united states words which also angered the government in china and the government in taiwan is also offered to provide sanctuary to
10:15 pm

10:17 pm
i have been looking at your instagram account and reading takes into the apples for behind the scenes this is a dialogue when donald trump announce his candidacy for president after that everyone has a boyce the best chance for democrats have to beat donald trump is to nominate an exciting inspirational callus mother nominee to join the global conversation in your thoughts get twitter and. on down to 0. america is divided like never before a site is so convinced that they are absolutely correct that the other side is dangerous people in power investigates how partisan politics are raiding the civil norms vital to american democracy every indicator shows america to be the least well functioning democracy of any established democracy. one of the strange death
10:18 pm
of american civility on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching the news a lot from my headquarters here in doha and pizza told me in the church today updating your top stories to us next on the security force. isn't something yemen have killed dozens of people to see fighters say they targeted a military camp in aden used by amarok to train forces separately a police stations attacked in the city center. rwanda has now reopened its border with the d r c after closing it earlier today the ongoing crisis one year old child has now become the 3rd patient to die from the virus in goma in the city close the
10:19 pm
border with rwanda more than $800.00 people have died since the latest outbreak began a year ago and the iranian president accusing the u.s. of quote childish behavior after put sanctions on the foreign minister zarif the u.s. says he's promoting what it calls the reckless agenda of iran's supreme leader. let's get more on our top story for you here on the news are let's talk to our senior correspondent my colleague who has covered the region extensively so where we are today is the u.a.e. he carries through on this drawdown creates a power vacuum must have known it was going to create a power vacuum and everything else begins to fracture even more than it was fracturing before it is it is definitely a huge crisis now for the saudi led campaign in yemen a senior yemeni commander was killed today in the attack where the healthiest are getting of the military installation is chose of the whole thiis commanders to gather more intelligence about the gathering about who's who invest gathering and launch and attack it shows also some of the one number
10:20 pm
a vulnerability is that these are the coalition continue to face in yemen and will continue to face in the near future which is how to stop the houthi is from gaining ground and how to prevent further fragmentation in yemen it's definitely a very delicate situation with the saudis do you think trying to get a handle on this get their grip on it and if they do how do they do it because there was a point maybe a year ago when people were saying actually the saudis are kind of overstretching themselves anyway because they've got strategic interests or they're trying to manipulate strategic interests in other areas around the region the saudis have never managed to put boots on the ground there were basically all the time relying on local militias affiliated with them to advance their own agenda it was the emirate is home montagne it is substantial military presence in the southern part of the country. it has a lot more there are insecure. and and especially in aden with their gradual
10:21 pm
pullout from from aden they're going to create a huge crisis for the saudis down the saudis will have to make a choice about either to commit further soldiers sound sources of the ground or to build a local force. to try to. put an end to the. over what to the rise of the whole is the problem is that they haven't been able to equip train. a solid group based in yemen to do that but if that's what they want to do the success or failure of that in part depends on whether the who sees can maintain what they've been doing just over the past 24 hours because they seem energized afresh in a way you know if we believe this claim that they go ballistic missile all the way up past bahrain up to damage in the oil rich region that's significant in itself but can they keep on doing that kind of highly symbolic tactical maneuver they
10:22 pm
can't account for the fear for the obvious reason that for more than 4 years since the start of the campaign the hope is us to maintain the same strategic areas they have controlled says they took over the capital sana'a in 2014 they are inside there all the border with saudi arabia they are in the are on the ask us of ties the us to buy the they control huge area in the northern part of the country that's where they have strong loyalties that's considered to be their stronghold i mean the sound of his campaign has not really when you look at it managed to somehow sideline the whole things or undermine them mr capabilities we have also to remind our viewers that the whole thing is managed to grade the extent after the killed former president ali abdullah saleh to have all the units loyal to the former president joining the host is to have switch allegiance automatically to the whole thing so some of those units particularly the republican god it's been about officers who are trained in the in the former soviet republic very well trained
10:23 pm
very well equipped and some of them have been working on advancing the missile missile capabilities of the of the of the yemeni republican over many decades so i think the whole thing is are using those offices those units particular the republican guard to launch the missiles that have been lost over the last particular the last 2 years to target areas inside saudi arabia and also in yemen thank you so much. protesters in sudan have taken to the streets for what organizers are calling a nationwide 1000000 man march there demanding justice for the killing of of the 6 people on monday when the security forces fired live ammunition on a student protest the ruling transitional military council has blamed paramilitary rapid support forces for the killings it says some members have now been arrested our correspondent had a morgan joins us live here on the news from the ethiopian capital addis ababa how many people do we think are actually on this march now. well here is going to be
10:24 pm
very hard to determine how many people are out simply because it's not just the team that is under streets there are tests happening in some of the art of the country as well as demanding and just and reducing not just an overkill in the protests were killed on monday but for protesters who have been killed since december they're saying that the ministry is not able to set up an independent and srinagar investigation committee and they're demanding that another in the end but you've got to look into the killings of those protesters so not high time to turn out on. their own as the dow fights he's actually is the a body that has been also protests since december and they're saying that they're demanding not just unjust and justice and accountability but for a swift transition to civilian rule and do we know that what happened and will continue to be blamed on the rapid support forces. well it's not just iraq and support forces that is being blamed here it's irish the transitional military
10:25 pm
council is also blaming the city needs professional association for inciting its words inciting the protest is to go out on the streets in the 1st place but let's look at the reasons that those students took to seats on monday in the city of not reduced lunch there are protesting the lack of bread. in price of transportation and heating which incidentally is the stated reason that people took to the streets in december and never stopped since then so it is months of only security opposition coalition as the forces of freedom and change which the sunnis a special dispensation is ourselves is blaming the transitional it's very on something that people didn't have the right to protest and saying that it's the job of the military council and security forces to protect the protest and so there's an extra year of this happening as its eyes are going to need to discuss the final details of a transitional government thank you. the

10:31 pm
until now failed to deliver its intended results the almost a list that they have been seen by the main strategy of this government has been the national guard which has not even finished being established so it's difficult to evaluate if they are even for filling their goals. in much of mexico insecurity is rooted in the splintering of drug cartels who fight over control of territory that violence however frequently spills into the community we're walking along the boardwalk in quotes likewise goes better crews a part of town that would normally be full of people enjoying the beach in the sun as you can see there's hardly anyone here afraid of becoming the next victims of extortion or kidnapping or murder many of chosen to leave madrid up a little. bit accuse. the israeli army has killed a palestinian man who it says crossed the gaza fence and shot at the soldiers 3 soldiers were injured in the attack israeli army says the man was a member of the military wing of hamas and israeli tank targeted a hamas military post in pawn units in gaza in response but there are no reports of
