the u.s. is doing but we also heard over the weekend has a debate has been ongoing what to do with. security officials in israel has said it shouldn't be such an approach to ending up the funding because it will leave a vacuum and that is actually not in the interest of israel's security and it still is the question who's going to take care of all the refugees here in the region our correspondent tanya kramer in jerusalem thank you tanya. let's get you up to date now with some of the other stories making news around the world brazil's former president a new notice of has been barred from standing for the presidency again by the country's top of the actual court has been imprisoned for corruption and all but one of the courts judges voted against him being allowed to seek reelection. talks between the u.s. and canada sort of mend the north american free trade agreement to restore old off
