mainly teenage boys had lost their lives. such as we can see from a certain angle their hands waving out for help when we had no choice but to ask them to jump out and we tried to catch them we did try to enter the house but the fire was way too hot until certain point there was a blackout when that happened the building started to fall apart we withdrew after that the fire started near the dormitory on the top floor first thing in the morning and quickly ripped through the entire building. the interior of the building is one hundred percent destroyed the mattresses books and all other things in the very damaged but the cause of the fire is still unclear we're still investigating it would have been difficult for the boys to escape as the rooms had barred windows and the fire blocked the only exit. through the window we dismantled the window grip opened the window and clung don't know if we force a window grill open at the time we couldn't think much of fire department

1:04 pm
should be. in this school. because of the student cannot get out on the field because the only exit been blocking the fire and spread very fast and some people consider the cause of smoke inhalation usually the routings. ground floor second second floor of the building itself and of course based on any field the common that i would have found one it's very clear that if i said this. i too would too you know business just want to. number of bad. i think sharon end up with the senate become. varia one shouldn't do it at the exit looking at that now but the bad. side of the rule if they have no party there now but that the six be just nice but because that is what did to me if. the

a new pope. north korea has threatened to use a nuclear weapon against japan after the un impose more sanctions against pyongyang the state run korean central news agency says that japan is no longer needed to exist near us it went on to say that the four islands of the japanese archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb japan's cabinet secretary russia hita suger has condemned north korea's threat. this announcement is extremely provocative and outrageous and raises the tension in the region and it is unacceptable let's get some analysis now from others here as craig leeson who's following developments for us from tokyo. certainly this threat was considered and expected by the japanese because of the support that this country is giving to its alliance partners the united states over the recent strengthening of the u.n. sanctions against north korea but japan is taking this threat very seriously given
1:09 pm
the recent hydrogen bomb test that took place two weeks ago a bomb that was ten times stronger than the one dropped by the united states on hiroshima and the missile that was launched across the north of japan so it is a very serious threat the defense systems here have been strengthened or will be strengthened we've been told certainly that japan is hoping the united states in that regard by shipping fuel out to these ages destroyers these anti missile destroyers that are in the sea of japan these are part of a range of defense mechanisms that been set up by the alliance which include the fed missile system in south korea. and we have the patriot battery here in japan and of course the a.g.s. ships contain interceptors which are capable of locking on and taking out any missiles as they launched into space so certainly japan is in readiness the united
1:10 pm
states says that the defense system here is strong enough to contain any missile threat that should come from north korea u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in london right now for talks with britain's prime minister to resume a he's arrived at ten downing street where he'll also hold a meeting later with foreign secretary boris johnson to listen will then attend the meeting on libya along with representatives from france italy egypt and the u.s. take you live to downing street al-jazeera sleeve baka is there so what are we expecting from this to happen in this libya meeting later need. has been goal here from downing street to meet the british prime minister to resume a largely a courtesy call. ahead of what is the main event later on the stuff to do talks largely about libya but also north korea too he will sit down with his counterparts from the u.k. but also other special delicate sort of come over here from italy from france from
1:11 pm
egypt from the u.a.e. and also the u.n. special representative to libya lovely to map out the possibility of future political talks over libya going forward they may well also discuss u.n. plans to send between one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty peacekeepers to libya we believe there likely to be nepalese soldiers to of course help stabilize the country but also to keep the peace between libya's warring factions instability is rife in libya ever since all ghibli the nato led bombardment of the country that led to the ousting and death of colonel gadhafi back in two thousand and eleven they may well also discuss a report that came out in june from the united nations that allege that the u.a.e. had broken a weapons embargo to libya by supplying a renegade command with attack helicopters and other weapons so there may be some
1:12 pm
forty issues that need to be dealt with before they can move forward as i mentioned then north korea also a key priority after pyongyang carried out its six and largest and you kill or weapons test earlier on this month really the question is now is what options are open to the international community going forward they have many thanks they backa downing street in london. you know the news out from al-jazeera still to come on the program. and i think that we're going to see we're going to see a scale up of emergency very quickly the situation gets worse the u.n. says that more help is on the way we'll tell you more. and staying put victims of last month's month's slides in sierra leone refused to relocate despite fears of another disaster there. and in sport a band about racism disrupts a major league baseball game in the united states so i will be here with all the details a little later. representatives
1:13 pm
of the syrian government and opposition groups are meeting in kazakstan for a sixth round of talks aimed at ending the civil war the talks of a start up brokered by russia and iran it's take you live now to. stratford is there so what does this latest round of talks aimed to achieve. well it's the first day of two days of talks here in a star we understand that they have been piled actual meetings going on the smalling in the hotel behind me between the garance is all of this in this conference the russians the turks and the iranians participating also the delegation from the syrian government but we also understand that the opposition are staying in another hotel and haven't actually arrived here yet despite these
1:14 pm
talks having started a few hours ago very much the focus of these talks of these four deescalation zones that was a plan that was signed by russia turkey and iran in may we understand that the focus is going to be very much on the area of italy of the province in northern syria which is one of these deescalation zones there are big questions being asked about how viable a plan it is because of the specific groups in control in that area groups that members of the international community the syrians and the russians say are terrorist organizations is also going to be discussion about the very power paramita is all of these deescalation zones exactly where they start and finish so we expect to hear news lines about mapping out the zones in the specific areas and also crucially discussion about who will be monitoring the zones which countries will be offering potentially forces soldiers on the grounds to make sure that this
1:15 pm
effort to try and hold the violence in these specific areas can continue for the six month period which is the aim so the russians say up this plan. this is the sixth round of talks is as we said very little has been achieved by the previous rounds any any more reason to think that this round can go further than that any before. well there are potential pitfalls everywhere you look and listen forget that during the last round the opposition delegation actually walked out for a period of time because they said that the areas their positions were were being formed as the last round of talks was going on the opposition are hugely against any suggestion of either the russians or the iranians for example being involved in any kind of monitoring force it has been put on the table the suggestion that
1:16 pm
people troops from kurdistan or kazakstan may be involved in some sort of potential monitoring mission but that is very muted at this stage then there is of course as i say italy province hugely problematic the groups in control there are considered to be terrorist organizations we understand from people on the ground there today our sources in italy that they may actually be groups with in that umbrella organization an organization called tata sham that may actually be defecting all splitting away from them concerned that they actually may be targeted and we've also heard from civilians in those areas as well who say that despite the cease fire as despite there being a deescalation in these areas so far the fighting has continued so it's a very complicated situation on the ground and certainly the talks that have happened here so far have actually gone a very little out zero chance strafford reporting live from a stand a chance many things or many victims of the war in syria are critical of the
1:17 pm
representatives at these talks saying that they're too far removed from the situation on the ground caroline malone reports. this is the kind of violence that you started talks on syria aimed at reducing the last round in july delegations from russia iran and turkey talked about creating four main deescalation. one of them is in the north of homs province where around one hundred eighty thousand civilians. men women and children live under the control of a rebel alliance and i said. i'm the chief of police in a village that belongs to alcohol i feel sorry to say that the last talks gave us a negative impression they talked about ceasefire but we only saw the opposite yesterday there was an ongoing mission in the sky. another deescalation zone is in the north west of the country including northeast latakia western aleppo and northern hama is home to more than
1:18 pm
a million civilians people in some parts have suffered years of war and we're glad to see some relief since july but it hasn't lasted long enough. laws than the previous talks gave us nothing except a truce on warplane activities the average number of reconnaissance flights and the artillery shelling is the same i expect nothing but the same failure from the coming talks nothing is expected but force displacement. the last round of talks was aimed at getting rebel groups backed by turkey and government forces supported by iran and russia to stop fighting for six months and to get syrian president bashar al assad's government to allow humanitarian aid into rebel areas but moscow tehran and i'm correct failed to agree. with the sun on well it was something we were hoping the last round of talks would let us see good results but in no way every day in alcohol or there is an escalation of violence we still hope the next round of talks will decrease the escalation here i expect
1:19 pm
a new era in syria that needs new faces and new leaders so as to sort the crisis out once and for all. the syrian opposition is being represented at separate un backed talks in geneva with damascus to cooperate in the fight against isis they want to see a political transition to remove president assad from power but that's the sticking point for the government delegation whose focus is on getting rid of those calls terrorists. syrian civilians still hope food real progress on talks whether in a stand up or geneva to bring them security and peace after more than six years without caroline malone al jazeera. two news is parliament has passed a controversial law granting amnesty to public officials who are accused of being corrupt before two thousand and eleven as arab spring the session was temporarily suspended before the vote when the opposition walked out in protest bill's been the subject of months of demonstrations opponents say that it's
1:20 pm
a setback for democracy recolor fabiani is a middle east north africa senior analyst at the eurasia group he joins us now live from london recolor good to have you with us what practice what does this amnesty actually mean well this honestly doesn't really mean that much anymore the earlier versions of the draft have been watered down every time because of significant opposition by both political groups and to a society organizations that have opposed this project from the very beginning initially it was supposed to include both businessman to have been involved in corruption cases before it does and eleven and government officials at the end of a lot of negotiations and pushback by your position in civil society are we now have a draft that includes exclusively government officials and basically hopes to achieve a degree of restarting basically projects at the bureaucratic level and basically
1:21 pm
you inject confidence in bureaucrats and civil servants that they would not be pursued and that they can do their job with a certain degree of confidence that built them so these are people who are affected we were carrying out orders from from above this is that right in the may have led to corruption. well this is basically the current version and. i would say the largest and most widespread interpretation of it is that we're talking about basically public officials who were involved in corruption cases but did not benefit directly from this and were executive orders from coming from above so basically we have narrowed down quite a lot. of who can benefit from what is effectively an amnesty ok
1:22 pm
what about the tension between the ruling coalition and opposition lawmakers as as you said there have been huge protests over this is that a tension that that's likely to continue. so we have seen tensions not only between the majority callie's should and the opposition but even within the majority coalition itself we d. is them is party and not expressing doubts regarding this project and leading to a watered down version of it and obviously the main tensions have been between a majority coalition authorities and the opposition in the civil various civil society organisations now these tensions obviously are not going to disappear overnight just because the project of the draft has been approved they are likely to continue however in itself this project this law is not i in my opinion enough to actually trigger a new round of of tensions an escalation in tensions between the authorities and
1:23 pm
civil society this is still an issue that obviously is seen as important by many donations but there are other more pressing priorities and issues that the opposition and civil society believe that are more important which is all about it can be economic recall very and jobs except there are so i believe that basically tensions will continue but they will not necessarily spill over in the next few weeks recolor good to talk to you many thanks indeed ricardo for biondi there in london. a woman and child of drowned when a boat carrying raw hinge or refugees capsized in the river separating bangladesh and be a man most of the thirty five other people on board managed to swim to shore aid agencies along bangladesh is border have been overwhelmed by the number of ranger entering the area since the military crackdown in myanmar began in late august the u.n. says that the scale of emergency requires a swift response. bangladesh has

1:37 pm
spread throughout the twenty four storey building in the early hours of the morning the investigation is expected to look at several factors including building regulations and the response of local government. joins us now live from outside the inquiry in western house this inquiry going to work to be in what we heard so far in the opening remarks. much outside methodist church in the shadow of. that terrible fire occurred some three months ago and relatives survivors. have been gathering and listening to the judge. who has been speaking for the last hour or so at a separate venue in central london outlining what he's going to do he says that they're going to be two phases he's going to look at the specifics of how the fire
1:38 pm
began in that high rise building how it spread how the emergency services responded and then in a second phase he's going to look at wider questions of building regulations for high rise residents whether they were in this case the response of the central government he says that he is aware that this process could be extremely painful for many of those who have to give evidence that his desire is that evidence will be given as openly as publicly as possible but he needs the people not to have that exacerbated if you like that the inquiry is not to find people guilty it is that to establish the truth and. lead to criminal prosecutions in the future well so be it. away from any conclusions because in fact one of the family's been been saying to be ahead of the beginning of this inquiry.
1:39 pm
well i think it's pretty clear that so martin more big is up against some serious headwinds i suppose you could say there is a great deal of suspicion and animosity from people caught up in the file there's a feeling frankly that he wasn't necessarily the right person to be in charge of the inquiry calls for him to be replaced feeding that he was a man of the establishment a white male of a certain age you wouldn't necessarily relate to people who are caught up in the disaster and these are to do with if you like the divisions of class and race in modern day britain a feeling that the inquiry was too narrow in its scope some of the victims wanted it to look at wider questions of social housing and indeed wealth inequality in this part of london so those are the sorts of difficulties that some martin will be is going to have to overcome to establish trust with people who were caught up in
