them rogue nations if trump is thinking about surprising us with the sound of a dog barking then he is clearly dreaming the chinese government has reiterated its stance that the third missile defense system should be removed from south korea to deescalate tensions across the region in another development there is an offer of humanitarian aid for north korea from across the border the unification minister in seoul says a humanitarian crisis is separate from the political and diplomatic crisis. but a government has consistently clarified its stance that we separate humanitarian aid from political situations in considering the poor situation of north korean people especially vulnerable social groups including children and pregnant women the international community continues to stress the necessity of humanitarian aid for north korean people while we respond with strong sanctions to the north korean regimes provocation meanwhile japan has sent an anti missile systems the northern
island of hokkaido that's in response to the recent missile launches by north korea two of which flew over japan mcbride is on the island. early morning about how cold dieties port the squid boats are bringing back their catch from a night's work in troubled waters. the sea between japan and the korean peninsula is regularly targeted by north korea's missile tests some of the bigger boats are now getting insurance against an attack but there's only so much you can protect against propaganda to get it want to stop if the missiles nucular you can't do anything about it you just finished. the two recent missile launches the past overhead on their way to the pacific ocean i've added to people's anxiety. i worry for my son because he works on ships in the waters all the parents are worried. daybreak is the preferred time for missile launches.
but now at the local military base newly arrived patriot missiles point skywards they can't do much against missiles passing hundreds of kilometers overhead but are meant as a defense against a direct attack on their i feel safer but at the same time if they have to use missiles it means war started. i'm afraid there will be another north korean missile test when the alarm is raise sirens go off in the street and people are alerted on their mobile phones and biggest cities there would be subways and underpasses to go to but in how people are supposed to get indoors and take shelter as best they can at city hall the man whose job it is to prepare for another alarm is hoping north korea will finally stop its tests on you know what it will get an idea we know we are not the target but no one knows what north korea thinking and that is the scary thing. as last night's catch is auctioned off the fisherman
prepared to go out once more not knowing what they'll face next in north korea's missile lottery macbride al-jazeera japan. meanwhile second vice president has told the u.n. the situation in rakhine state is easing henry van tio denied there had been any violence since september the fifth more than four hundred twenty thousand muslims have sought sanctuary in bangladesh since the military crackdown began and we're at the end of last month many more remain trapped at the border yes no denying that this is a problem of significant when did you i'm happy to inform you that now i see tourism has improved now i am classes have been reported since
september accordingly we are concerned by your part the number of muslims coursing buying their debts remain. right we would need to fight terrorism for the exodus why doesn't your unknown is that the great journey of. this site or to remain here really. well let's throw that one to turn to be our correspondent in cox's bazar near the bangladeshi me and ma border town v a so officially the situation is easing it's calming what's the reality of what you're witnessing firsthand. well just to make a statement i just got a call from one of the. police already over and on the police who is on special duty in tech and of broader area he knows he is in touch with me he called me to
say that look we received two thousand five hundred growing refugees this morning and we have shipped them to the problem campaign for protection so they have shelters over there that's the ground reality we've been bothering. visiting the border and very almost every day every other day our team and every day is the same scenario trickle down of refugees coming down of course the pace isn't as much as what we saw in two weeks back but they're coming nevertheless and you can see villages on fire smoke rising the situation hardly seems to have changed maybe the exodus of people has been slowed down but there are refugees coming as giving us horrific tales of atrocities on the other side of the border and many of them are saying we don't want to go back until there is an international mediation to the situation that is the ground reality the statement coming out of the me on my side might be a reaction to the recent diplomatic pressure building up on them but the ground reality says very different another report we are getting just a little bit ago
a boatload of relief aid in the. state capital was bound for the affected area hundreds of but this whole style community but this people actually block that aid to ship to the affected area these are some of the ground realities so definitely not nothing has changed much and until there is a serious diplomatic effort from all sides there shouldn't be there has to be a diffused to this tension undoubtedly because almost half a million people are taking shelter in bangladesh by who desperate needs emergency aid whether protection and that need sanitation otherwise aid agencies that type of disease and death is very i mean and and the horizon so if we believe in except the range of muslim refugees are saying somebody across the border is still literally. to those villages. absolutely whether it is
a security force or hostile book dave who doesn't want a muslim community living in iraq and state it still defame you know that the village are saying that they don't want us that the security forces as well as the villagers but these villagers who are coming out there they've been here really and yeah communities who are actually pleading to bangladesh as one of our report showed earlier. thank you. the iraqi government has announced a new offensive to take all forces have started to advance on the group strongholds of hawaii in the province of kirkuk they're planning to clear the land in villages on the outskirts of the time before recapturing the main central area. has more now from iraq's kurdish region. this offensive was a long time in the coming and finally prime minister body and nouns it's beginning . some have argued that how we should have been dealt with before the mosul
offensive as there's a sizeable number of fighters there estimated between one thousand five hundred to two thousand and that how we've had this script has actually acted as a rear base for the fighters somewhere where they could have retreated safely now their defensive today started from two axes the northwest and the southwest of that dress trick the south this is quite important because it's a different of the hungry mountains the hammerin mountains have been also part of it. by the fighters which used it as a corridor to reach central iraq from there it's a really a straight line for example the. refinery if you recall they had taken over the refinery a couple of years ago they have also been able to reach places like the crete now these are the very early stages of that offensive at the moment it's only iraqi security forces and military forces and counterterrorism units that are involved
kurdish peshmerga out of it at the moment they're just securing their defensive positions south africa cook now this is going to take a while. for a while to be over with they still have to go all around the areas full of small villages and it's quite vast and quite poorest so they will have to go to try to circle how we shut down before they are able to get into it. breaching. the support for yemen's rebels on the third anniversary of the takeover of. from brisk news and fuel. to the warm tranquil waters of southeast

welcome back here with al-jazeera your top story so far three days of mourning have been declared in mexico at least two hundred thirty people have been killed in the worst earthquake to hit the country in thirty years rescuers pulled one survivor from the rubble after being trapped for more than thirty six hours. north korea's foreign minister says the u.s. president will trump sounded like a dog barking when he threatened to destroy his country made the comments during a speech to the u.n. general assembly in new york. second vice president has told the u.n. that violence in the northern states of rakhine is easing but teams on the ground say there is no sign that that is actually the case more than four hundred twenty thousand injured have fled to bangladesh since
a military crackdown began last month many more remain trapped in the border area. thousands of people holding a big rally in the yemeni capital sana'a today it marks the third anniversary of the who's the rebels take over their own weapons stay atop the leader accuse the west and its allies of causing chaos in the country. you know. as we said the iraqis are the front for the americans and today they're stealing yemen's natural gas despite the suffering of the yemeni people and both sana and people are suffering from issues related to both natural gas and petrol either in not being able to find it or not being able to benefit from its wealth in all of this the yemeni people are not the ones who benefit. ok let's take a look now at how the crisis in yemen unfolded the rise of the who sees can be traced back to november twentieth eleven when the then president ali abdullah saleh was forced to hand over power to his deputy and the current president months or
hardee that created a power vacuum who the rebels who say they represent the minority shia community took advantage they took control of the capital sana'a on september the twenty first twenty fourteen with iranian support in response a saudi led coalition began airstrikes in march of twenty fifteen to defeat the and to restore the yemeni government various rounds of u.n. mediated talks have failed to end the conflict and more than ten thousand people have been killed since the fighting began. that's put some context into this for you joining us live is our correspondent hashim who's covered yemen extensively during the day looking at those protests the capital looks to an outside eye as if there's a semblance of normality but at nighttime it changes and outside of santa it's a completely different set up it is indeed it is a completely different political landscape however this is quite an interest in important for the whole thing as they would like to this is a show force they would like to show the world the international community and the
sounding as coalition that is by three years of massive military campaign they're far from being defeated in this to control more than sixty percent of the country they still have. a huge territory of us russia's from all the border with saudi arabia all the way south to words. they haven't basically pulled out from any area they've controlled ever since so they remain the most powerful political and military group. in yemen i think today by staging this rally they would like to tell the saudis in particular the united nations and the americans that ultimately ultimately there's going to be any deal in yemen they are going to be the key player. in the future of the country when it comes to that deal do you sense that there is any back channel communication going on at all either between the disparate groups that have maintained a hold on disparate areas all there's a push for something to happen from outside the country well there are two things
happening now on the ground you have a divided yemeni the saudis this is hash this movement which would like to break away from the north then in the center you have groups loyal to the president also how does trying to gain territory particularly a rather capital audience as well they haven't managed to make significant gains and then you have this coalition of groups the hope is on the former president of the other ones who have the upper hand the u.n. has been trying to bring all the new go the parties to negotiate a settlement that didn't work saudi arabia on the other hand which leads this coalition against the hope is is reported to have asked the iranians over the last few weeks to help them to negotiate a political settlement. with the with the healthy because they do understand that after three years massive destruction of the entire areas in yemen and the humanitarian price that the yemenis have been paying ever since there's no progress that has started as coalition is making and therefore i think they are desperate for a settlement and briefly how should we nobody fighting on the ground it would appear
to an outsider again really cares about the people of yemen because you got that massive humanitarian disaster you've got one one point eight million children who do not go to school you've got cholera in the capital and those situations are getting worse not better the yemenis i talk to from time to time in the capital sanaa different parts of the country they basically say that no one seems to care about them this by the huge price they had to pay we're talking about half a million children in yemen under the risk of cholera talking about ten thousand people who were killed you are talking about more than eighteen million the yemenis under the line of poverty you're talking about entire areas where people don't have access to food medicine and water and the fight continues and casualties for every single day around the capital. around town in the south and also in the capital. of the u.n. you haven't heard from any world leader strong statement denouncing what is happening in yemen or calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities that and
asking the international community to bring about a political settlement you no longer hear this narrative and it seems that if the fighting continues we're just going to see further. suffering of the yemeni people in the coming and coming weeks and months thank you. tens of thousands of people are protesting in the philippines on the forty fifth anniversary of the declaration of martial law in one nine hundred seventy two the lately the ferdinand marcos imposed martial law citing a threat of communism now a group calling itself a movement against tyranny is using the anniversary to highlight human rights violations under the now president will be good to talk to his own going crackdown on drugs. joins us now from manila jamila to what extent do the people protesting today kind of reflect the old mira filipinos feel about to take. well basically we're seeing a lot of survivors. of the period of marcos compare that from the current one
of president to. a lot of them who survived torture and rape say that in fact the current administration is far worse when it comes to human rights violations former president for the market stayed in power for more than twenty years and during that time more than three thousand people have been killed a lot of people disappeared journalists and activists human rights lawyers aware however under president of the good that there is administration it is believed that more than thirteen thousand people have already been killed since is more on drugs was launched when he was sworn into power last year and this number that continues this this is a rising number of casualties of human rights violations a lot scarier over the last few weeks that there has. to impose martial law should protests like this one become violent it is something that is. right to downplay so there is tension here the president called for
a national day of protests and we're expecting thousands of people here call for an end to the war on drugs and he called. for the house or in fact the president will be. if he does declare martial law because he's clearly set himself on a particular course but if he does do that would he be crossing a line and unacceptable line for those people that you're discussing. oh well definitely they said that they will not allow to hear that the had. never again to martial law however if we look at over the last year this is practically a police state we're in a state of national emergency since the bombing in the town marshal law it's already implemented across the mindanao region you know there's been increasing surveillance and looting basically on human rights violations there's been a threat to shut down the budgets of the commission and human rights are been
attacks against journalists attacks against human rights advocates so this will come as no surprise a lot of human rights experts say you're just a matter of time before president actually declared martial law all across the country thank you. on a big story yesterday the kenyan opposition leader right now is calling for the prosecution of those responsible for the alleged manipulation of last month's presidential poll. there were celebrations by opposition supporters after the supreme court blamed the electoral commission for its decision to nullify president to her kenyatta his reelection more now from stephanie. that these are unprecedented times in kenya has been atmosphere of uncertainty ever since supreme court judges to know the results of last month's presidential election. and let's say. a lot of.
