8:49 am
killed in 2 attacks in the yemeni port city of then one who defied his claim another hit on saudi arabia. mozambique's president signs a peace deal with the leader of a former rebel movement ending years of hostility. another day another murder scene fear of crime is creating ghost towns in mexico. along the south korean military says the north has launched an unidentified short range projectile from the country's east coast if confirmed it will be the 3rd launch in just over a week earlier on thursday north korean state media released these images of lead. there kim jong un overseen the test firing of a new rocket launcher system on wednesday but south korea says it fired 2 short
8:50 am
range ballistic missiles. live in saw south korea's capital seoul for some rob what morrie hearing about these latest tests we are still waiting has them for more details we know that they were apparently 2 short range projectiles that were fired from the east coast and it happened much earlier than some of the other launches we've seen in the past week or so in fact in what's basically the middle of the night here and you are reminded about an apology that kim jong un famously made when he met during one of his summits with moon j.n. of south korea last year when he said he all of the missile launches that have been taking place during 20162017 had been waking up the people of south korea he was sorry for that but that was all a thing of the past well think again why are we having this flurry of activity as you mentioned there the 3rd such testing in about
8:51 am
a week it could well be more monday reasoners given by south korea's spy agency in a briefing thursday to the government here that basically the north and accepts that we are about to have these very important long awaited negotiations working level talks between north korean and u.s. officials after the meeting between donald trump and kim jong un on the d.m.z. and you cannot be launching these things in the air while people are sitting at the negotiating table so according to south korea's spy agency we could print probably see until those talks take place which might be in the next couple of weeks more launches like this one so what kind of a message north korea sending with these missile launches that. they are always very calculated in doing these launches it may look appear to be reckless but we know from donald trump that he isn't bothered by these short range
8:52 am
missiles being launched so they know they can get away with it basically also they are angry at the exercises that are about to take place the military exercises between the u.s. and south korean forces even though they've been scaled down so normally characteristically they have to make some sort of gesture this seems to be it's also of course a reminder of the huge arsenal of weaponry that they still have and that they've been building up while these summits been taking place there's no concrete agreement that says they have to dismantle their nuclear or missile arsenal so they are continuing to develop their weaponry as we can see it will be those slightly depressing for south korea because of course they do have an agreement with north korea about these tests their joy and one of the summits last last september at the south and north korea signed a military pact a military agreement that was meant to ease tensions on the korean peninsula and
8:53 am
a very important part of that was north korea stopping these missile tests so it will be very depressing for the government here of south korea that we are seeing this flurry of missile activity and also gives ammunition to many of the more conservative critics of this liberal administrator here who say look this is what an agreement with a north korean signature on the bottom of it is worth as i'm rob thank you rob mcbride in seoul for us alan fish airs morning from washington d.c. . we talk about short range missiles but these missiles have a range of about a 1000 kilometers an hour would certainly bring in most of south korea and japan were not only are the u.s. allies but there are many thousands of u.s. troops based no donald trump just a week or so ago was hailing the fact that there's been enormous l. launches there for 18 months as a great foreign policy achievement when it comes to the most recent launches he
8:54 am
says no big deal here at range missiles we never made an agreement that i have no problem we'll see what happens. range missiles a very standard. there are talks ongoing between the united states and north korea to come up with some sort of deal that the 2 leaders can sign that will lead to north korea reducing its nuclear arsenal but there's no sign of any breakthrough at the moment and certainly these missile launches don't help the atmosphere what is clear though is that donald trump needs some sort of political when they're given how much capital he has invested and if he doesn't get something and get it soon then what we've seen are just 18 months of for 2 or and warm talk from donald trump rather than any concrete steps towards reducing north korea's missile. now u.s. president donald trump has announced more tariffs on goods from china in a bid to raise a pressure on them to reach
8:55 am
a deal he says he's not happy with the progress of trade talks and wants a 10 percent tariff on the remaining $300000000000.00 worth of chinese imports trump is back on the campaign trail for his 2020 reelection bid attending a rally in cincinnati ohio alongside fice president mike pence castro is also there for so heidi on the terrace 1st how did this come about so we're all hearing about it. why hasn't trump made news prior to departing washington on this tariff each we did about the 10 percent tariff on the additional $300000000000.00 worth of chinese goods he said that the u.s. was doing is because china has not followed through on its promise to buy more american agricultural products nor limit the number of sentinel and precursor chemicals that slipped through and are shipped to the u.s. now this effectively ends the truce that we had seen between the 2 countries that's
8:56 am
that was the agreement struck in june when both china and the u.s. said that they would try to avoid further escalation of the trade war while tasks were ongoing and in fact those talks have continued in just a few days prior president from hold those talks that said they were making progress and that he was looking forward to a positive dialogue to continue however today it appears that there was a change of heart and he has announced this temper centerra that could be put into place september 1st and as we can see from the live pictures there are president trump still speaking of this rally been speaking there for almost an hour now i think what's he been telling his supporters at that rally. yeah well a big question here was whether he would continue a rather controversial line of attack against american large urban cities he was
8:57 am
criticized because he equated one of those cities baltimore to what he called quote a rat infested place that you would never want to visit any attacked that city's black representatives in congress so he took a lot of heat for that but today he didn't back down he actually just said that he thinks the homicide rate of baltimore is higher than that of afghanistan without providing any evidence he also equated san francisco another large urban american city it's another problem this urban area controlled by democrats of course san francisco the hometown of house speaker democrat nancy pelosi the other topic that's come up so far has also been the border outing what he calls excess in lowering the number of illegal border crossers at this at the border because of the pressure he had put on mexico to step up its immigration and force meant but
8:58 am
notably during that part of this speech there was a 5 minute interruption in which he really couldn't get out a word because of protesters there was one young man holding up a sign that says immigrants made america and of course after that break he was quickly ushered out of the arena by security as a. castro live for us in cincinnati. iran and the u.a.e. will strengthen and expand their maritime border security cooperation a deal was signed in tehran by iran's border police commander and his an iraq officials say it was the 1st meeting between the 2 sides in 6 years and it follows a number of incidents in the gulf. pretty rebels seen yemen say they've carried out 2 major attacks on saudi and amorality backed forces both the attacks in and around the port city of them killed $49.00 people they come just weeks after the u.a.e.
8:59 am
started reducing its military presence in yemen stephanie decker has more. it started as a military parade. it ended in this the result of what he said was a missile strike in aden the seat of the saudi backed government the campus a base for amorality trained and supported units among those killed the senior military commander brigadier general monied seen here earlier in the week wearing the red bray but it wasn't the only message the hooty sent on thursday they also said they'd fired a long range missile at the port city of demand in saudi arabia hundreds of kilometers away a 1st in this saudi led 4 year long war 2 brazen attacks with a very clear message they are layers you know true to this military action by her and i think that one of the 1st thing that they want you to do is that the moment in conway the new reason actually during cro-magnon i think they wanted to show the
9:00 am
saudi duck when they are losing support and their and allies there who are the all quite capable of actually hitting them and he didn't quite where they fell them with calls to go where they fell but they had a stronghold in the saudi led war was launched to remove the iranian backed 2 things from yemen or to weaken them at least there seems to be no end in sight the latest attack is going to the message that. the buck to voters is going to come under attack under the are a legitimate target because the are working with a buck towards has no political achievements on either side saudis ally the u.a.e. is pulling back its presence and even held a rare meeting with an iranian delegation on cheese day to discuss issues in the strait of hormuz it's a political stalemate in a conflict this killed thousands of civilians left tens of thousands of children starving and crippled what was already one of the world's poorest countries.
