who would in mexico where people are counting the cost after the quake of the houses that have been destroyed and the lives that have been changed forever. bowing to pressure facebook agrees to share details of russian adverts on its site ahead of the u.s. election. for the first time in history a leader of north korea has directly addressed the world on state television tensions are high with the country now considering a hydrogen bomb test in the pacific kim jong un reacted to donald trump's u.n. speech in which he threatened attack to attack north korea kim said he spoke unprecedented ruge nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors a frightened dog barks louder kim went on to call trump a road. and
10:02 am
a gangster who was fond of playing with fire the north korean leader also called trump a dotard which is hard of hearing him went on to say he will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged us do tarred with fire can draw and statement was just read out on north korean state t.v. here's a taste of some of it after taking office trump has rented the world wrestlers three threats and blackmail against all countries he's unfit to hold the probative of supreme command of a country and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fonda playing with fire rather than a politician his remarks which describe the us option through straightforward expression of his will have convinced me rather than frightening or stopping me that the path i chose is correct and that is the one i have to follow to the last now that trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of the eyes of the world and made the most ferocious declaration of war in history that he would destroy the d.p. r. k. we will consider with seriousness exercising the highest level of hardline
10:03 am
countermeasure in history action is the best option in treating the dotard who hard of hearing is uttering only what he wants to say late on thursday of the un and more sanctions against pyongyang this was the response of north korea's foreign minister. who i think it should be a hydrogen bomb test on the ground of an unprecedented scale well china to announce sanctions against north korea beijing has been on the pyongyang's biggest backers in the past adrian brown is standing by for us in the chinese capital b. jing but first to kathy novak in the south korean capital seoul kathy how's this being viewed and reported there. well we just saw the statement being read out as you mentioned on north korean state television that's blocked here in south korea we're able to see it here at the al-jazeera bureau but most people will be reading about this second hand in south korean media and what the foreign minister of north korea in new york was talking about there was the
10:04 am
question around what kim jong un specifically meant when he was talking about the highest level of hardline countermeasure in history and suggesting it could mean anything including the detonation of a hydrogen bomb in the pacific now the south korean unification ministry was asked about this here's a little bit about what the spoke of the what spokesman had to say. please on the progress toward north korea should immediately stop reckless provocations that show a hostile attitude towards other countries and leads itself to isolation and destruction it should use dialogue to peacefully resolve its issues. we've said cathy the tensions are increasing but this must be particularly acute where you are i mean that city that you're sitting in right now so close to the border. well of course the concern here in south korea is that many suggest if the u.s. were to attack north korea north korea's first response would be to attack this city seoul with conventional artillery so south korea's president has been at pains
10:05 am
to stress that there will be no war again on the korean peninsula he used his speech at the united nations to call for calm to call for peace and to say that it the function of the u.n. is to promote peace and that the situation must be stable he managed to so that tensions are not allowed to escalate and so that accidental military clashes do not destroy the peace so he is continuing to say that south korea does not desire the collapse of north korea and does not want to force reunification and saying that this situation must be handled diplomatically and through sanctions and pressure on north korea and not a military option kathy thank you very much we'll get in beijing in just a moment first here's a diplomatic out of the james bays on those new sanctions as announced by the united states against north korea. days after he threatened to destroy north korea
10:06 am
militarily now a fresh attempt by president trump economic destruction for them announcing a new executive order just signed that significantly expands our authorities to target individuals companies for their jewel institutions that finance and facilitate trade with north korea he was flown by the leaders of the two countries most at risk from north korea the prime minister of japan and the president of south korea not present the nation which will probably be most affected by the new sanctions china but it appears there was some coordination before this move was taken china. their central bank has told their other banks it's a massive banking system to immediately stop doing business with north korea in his speech to the general assembly china's foreign minister wang ye made no
10:07 am
mention of that and again stressed dialogue was the only way to solve the crisis so if you want to. we are the d.p. r. k. not to continue in this dangerous direction we call upon the u.s. to honor its former commitment and we call upon all parties to play a constructive role in easing tensions there is still hope for peace and we must not give up negotiation is the only way out which deserves every effort. in a special security council session on nuclear weapons the us secretary of state rex tillerson cited south africa kazakstan and ukraine as examples of countries that have thrived after giving up the bomb parts in its official statements north korea often quotes another example libya gave up its nuclear and chemical weapons program in two thousand and three eight years later its leader colonel gadhafi was toppled
10:08 am
with the help of the u.s. and its allies james zero at the united nations. edinburgh and china correspondent monitoring events at that end of the story adrian more language more rhetoric more sanctions presumably precisely what beijing does not really want to hear right now. yes but i don't think these new sanctions really came as a big surprise peter back in june the united states blacklisted the bank of dandong a relatively small bank that operates in northeast china it has about one hundred branches and u.s. treasury officials said they had evidence that this bank was facilitating transactions with officials who were dealing with north korea's missile and nuclear program they also blacklisted a chinese shipping company so i think they got a foretaste of what to expect what i think has happened is that behind the scenes i
10:09 am
think u.s. officials have got china in a headlock and they said look unless you rein in these small financial institutions who are enabling business with the north then we will target one of your big banks we will blacklist one of your big banks so they can't operate in the united states financial system now china of course has four of the world's biggest banks and i think the leadership want to avoid a situation where one of its banks could not parade in the world's largest economy that's the first thing secondly the language the war of words between the united states and china is also happening here we've had a very strongly worded statement today by north korea's official news agency accusing china's media and the chinese government of being in the armpit of the united states they also talked about you know dirty excrement it really was pretty you know purple prose turned crimson but in that garbled rhetoric there was one
10:10 am
unmistakable message and it was this you know china and north korea are no longer as close as they once were and it's becoming you know abundantly clear now that china cannot resolve this crisis by itself because it's simply run out of good options erin thank you well japan says it backs the u.s. in putting more pressure on north korea. so. to have. some behavior provocative to regional and international security they're absolutely unacceptable we strongly support the u.s. decision on additional measures to put a new level of pressure on north korea. bangladesh's prime minister sheikh hasina made a plea to the un to help the refugees return home to me and here's what she told the un general assembly. first me and mom must unconditionally stop the violence on the practice of ethnic cleansing in the rakhine state immediately and
10:11 am
forever secondly secretary general of the united nations should immediately send a fact finding mission to me and my third all civilians irrespective of religion and ethnicity must be protected in me and ma for that saves earns could be created inside me and under a un supervision for ensure sustainable return of all forcibly displaced in bangladesh to the homes in me and ma. ok let's cross live to nicholas hawk joining us from cox's bazar in bangladesh close to the border with me and my listening to those comments nic from shaikh has seen it is clear that she actually wants the range of muslims to go home how is bangladesh coping so far. well the sheer number of refugees coming in is overwhelming and we still at the
10:12 am
moment can see villages burning in the wreck hine state people are still coming in to the country every day and as we speak there are both loads overhang guys coming in inside bangladesh most of them are young children and women why well they say that the men are being rounded up shots and put into mass graves or they're being put in internment camps the aid agency peter save the children says that there are more than six hundred thousand children that could end up as refugees here in bangladesh by december many of them have either lost one or both of their parents we met one of them in the kuta pollen count. asking for money from strangers is no easy task when you have never done it before it's especially difficult when you are a child just a week ago was playing in the fields near her home in myanmar is reckoned state
10:13 am
unaware of the dangers to come but then masked men set her house on fire killing her parents she travelled alone to bangladesh here a former neighbor took her under her care. i miss my mother had such hugs i miss her cooking i miss the way my parents made me feel she is not alone according to the aid agency save the children a thousand ringgit children have either been separated from their parents or orphaned and what the un describes as textbook ethnic cleansing by mean more security forces. for decades now mean mars government refuses to allow ring of children in state run schools. or denied access to government run medical facilities they live in poor conditions segregated from others and their recent experience appears to have brought the ring get closer they look after each other
10:14 am
with. my concern is that she doesn't end up being exploited by sex traffickers people trying to use her she's smart and she's now part of my family. there are brief moments of fun but for the most part running the children have to act like adults they work build homes and search for food. this is the hardest part of the day for. and all the others here she is going to have to compete with adults other children to try to get a small bag of rice and length and that will be their meal for the day. in the chaos she fails to get a russian she returns to her tent empty handed and alone. this is the start of a new life as a ten year old refugee in a foreign land. let's just say the coming. along.
10:15 am
is reporting for us. there are people. there. you know heavy rains having come through you can see the structure that essentially temperate structure on the left hand side of the. pictures will carry on a conversation with our correspondent i mean the country. anyway so i guess it's partly fiscal reality on the part of. she's looking at the. we cannot sustain this. that's right peter i mean this is a country of one hundred sixty million people it's a small country where the majority of the people live on less than two dollars a day so imagine you have an influx of. eight hundred thousand. coming into bangladesh this is something that bangladesh alone cannot cope on its own and has called for international organization. for the united
10:16 am
nations to intervene what bangladesh wants is that. these ranges as their own and that they can go back to their countries in. describes could be monitored by the united nations now the problem here on the bank on their side is that in this area in the southern area. this is an area that is very poor compared to the rest of the country bangladesh economy is booming. by seven percent and it is the factory of the world but none of that wealth is going down to the area so even the camps as we speak there is some sense of resentment from local bangladeshis that. there are getting so much help so it's important for bangladesh to try to get a third party involved the united nations involved because the relationship peter between mean more and bad. is. point bangladesh does not appreciate the fact that
10:17 am
the. are being described by me and mars government as. terrorists this is a term that that people here take offense and so they want the united nations to intervene peter nicholas thank you. to come here on al-jazeera hurrican area is upgraded once again as it barrels through the caribbean. the world's most powerful women days ahead of an election. we're still got some rather lively showers around the balkans they're making their way further race what's across the hungary in plain so we'll see some wet weather making its way into rumania cool weather as well temperatures in bucharest around nineteen degrees
10:18 am
a few days ago we were getting up into the thirty's that nineteen actually matches up with the kind of temperatures we're looking at across western parts paris ninety degrees. for london some time and rain coming in across the gulf in the north of england that will push its way further east was fizzling out in the process temps picking up to nineteen in london. they don't see bad at so let right not so far away from auckland another belts of rain coming through and another belt of rain still there across the central and eastern parts of europe over towards the black sea in between high pressure so it's five dry temper just getting up to twenty four celsius in a row with a fine weather the settled weather the sunny weather that's there across northern parts of africa that he wants to thirty five for car a little more cloud i would say was a northwest i'll just make its way across northern parts all the algeria. wanted to spots of rain but nothing much to speak of the majority of the rain will be across central pos ethiopia seeing more showers showers to into southern parts of gaza and

10:22 am
this house will probably have to be pulled down. on the edge of the turn they set up a camp for those who have nowhere to go to try to make it comfortable but you wouldn't call home. everyone works together to fill the trucks that regularly pool and this takes aid to those in times further away and those who simply won't leave home. didn't know what to do when the quake hit she's due to give birth any day for the moment that has to be the priority. and they helped me with some for me some diapers and clothes for my baby we left our house with nothing we barely managed to grab importance documents i'm afraid to return home it's badly damaged. but turn of a who will rebuild in some ways that's an easy fix and years to come the only scars will be those in the hearts and minds of people who've lost everything. alan fischer al-jazeera. mexico. hurricane maria picking up strength again as it makes

10:26 am
experience and achievements in the past twelve years both on the world stage and domestically to boost the economy oh this is the main thing is that social security and health care have improved and this is only been possible because we continue to enjoy the highest number of jobs and the lowest levels of unemployment since reunification. in traditional settings like this in her home state and that america is her family surrounded by friends and party supporters and here they are lapping up what she has to say and if the opinion polls are correct so are many people across this country which is all the more surprising given the just over a year ago her prospects for reelection looked far less rosy the refugee crisis which saw more than a million people allowed into germany was still very much in the headlines survey suggested many people disapproved of merkel's welcoming for refugees. senior
10:27 am
members of her own party began publicly to question the course she was taking but then last september voters in two states deserted merkel's party in favor of the far right alternative the germany merkel's response was contrite she promised no repeat of the scenes of twenty fifteen and a toughening of the rules regarding migrants who commit offenses at the same time the closure of the balkan route for refugees into germany meant what had been a steady flow became a trickle by the start of this year merkel's christian democrats were back in a healthy poll lead it's one they've maintained and improved ever since winning three state elections in a spring in america is so lucky in so far as the current be an old crisis in the media that hordes whatever migration agree its debts. in two of the narrative of a crisis it doesn't necessarily mean that there is no reason to be afraid of
10:28 am
something but one person merkel appears not to be afraid of his her direct social democrat rival martin schultz when his party chose him as its candidate in january it was because they hoped a so-called should see fact might propel them back into the chancellery but the opinion polls which one suggested he might have a chance now indicate he has very little chance with machall poised for four more years in charge dominant came out zira than can how can. the kenyan president has a court ruling that an old his election victory last month is a coup. as the supreme court has stolen democracy from the people the court blames the electoral commission for cancelling the results in the poll when the transparent nor verifiable vote will now take place on october twenty sixth. facebook's mark zuckerberg plans to share information about russian linked with the
