10:01 am
hello world nor does their life and i'm asking denis also coming up palestinian reconciliation a senior faster delegation goes to hamas controlled gaza to try to end the ten year rift that's left nearly two million gazans more deprived than ever. the u.s. secretary of state's diplomatic efforts in china to ease the north korea crisis is a waste of time to it says balsa president trump plus the emotional family reunion as puerto rican struggle to put their lives back together almost two weeks after hurricane maria. first the official results are in from catalonia as controversial succession referendum which happened on sunday more than two million votes were cast ninety percent of them voted to split from spain the voter turnout was quite low it was around forty percent even thousands of even in madrid the spanish capital files of
10:02 am
people celebrated the yes vote. president meanwhile says the region one the right to become an independent state that's why this prime minister says the recession the secession referendum and the track on the roof. that and the entire world to see and that on one side we have violence and shame and on the other democracy and dignity this is an easy election to have moreover this is an election that we asked for from the european institutions and from governments of other countries who want desire for us to be able to build a more open democratic world. coexistence is a good that we must begin to recover as soon as possible and i say very clearly i'm not going to close any door and if it did it's not my way of doing politics i've always offered an honest sincere dialogue but always within the law and always within the democracy frame let's go live now to our correspondent john hendren his
10:03 am
in barcelona john let's have a look at the numbers then the numbers the turnout was around the forty percent mark but about ninety percent of those he did. yeah those seem like a couple of things first of all that those who were against this referendum largely did not show up at the polls that is because spain declared it in a legal election and that was the point of view of many of those who union voters who wanted to remain within span so they didn't show up at the polls and that's why you get this almost russian election number of ninety percent where the people who came out came out to vote for this referendum it should also be noted that there was a massive police presence here by the spanish police and the spanish civil defense forces but their main job was to prevent this election from going off so i don't
10:04 am
think it's terribly surprising that those numbers are a little lower than they might have otherwise been they convert. seven hundred seventy thousand ballots we don't know what was in them but assuming that there was another ninety percent vote for secession that that would have increased those numbers somewhat but there's no there's no doubt that that number is slightly disappointing in the sense that there was a two thousand and fourteen referendum were two point six million people voted course the spanish government did not crack down that time so this is probably not terribly inconsistent with that level of voter participation what we did see from those voters who came out with extraordinary enthusiasm and a dedication to carry out this banned election they would by the thousands they would stand outside of these electoral centers and block police from coming in and it least in one case in the largest voting center that we saw here in barcelona
10:05 am
they actually blocked police from going in and taking those ballots so that number of seven hundred seventy thousand ballots that police confiscated would have been higher. so clearly this is a disputed result what happens next. well that is the million dollar question carlos put them on the president of catalonia the region that is seeking to split from spain with this referendum he said before this ever happened if the vote is yes that we are going to declare independence and he said that there is no minimum threshold i spoke to him a couple days ago in an interview and asked who does the vote need to be one million does it need to be two million and he says no under spanish law it does not and considering the special circumstances of this referendum he said there is no minimum threshold so i think we can certainly expect that from the catalonian president yesterday he called this a shameful page in spanish history he said they gained the right to be respected in
10:06 am
europe and they gained the right to create an independent state so he pretty clearly states that he will be. declaring independence what really is remaining question out there is how the spanish government will respond mario in a room and spanish prime minister yesterday was very clear about that he said this election did not happen that it was illegal and he said the spanish police abided by the law that defies what we saw on the ground where there was a lot of baton use rubber bullets people bloodied who were apparently simply peacefully protecting poles. so this point could form some kind of compromise with catalonia catalonia has always sought to have the kind of tax situation that the basque country next door has where they collect most of their taxes spend it mostly within their borders that's a major complaint because they give more to madrid to madrid gives back but it could be at this point that this is been such a bad rift that the divide between the country and the region is so bad that it's
10:07 am
going to be hard to bridge that gap all right. thank you very much. that live in barcelona now the two women who are accused of assassinating the brother of north korean leader kim jong un have both pleaded not guilty at the trial in a malaysian court a large international media contingent was at the courthouse to see the arrival of the indonesians and vietnamese suspects now they're both charged with killing. by smearing his face with a banned nerve agent at the airport in february they face the death penalty if found guilty florence city has more from the high court near. the two suspects from indonesia and one p. hong from vietnam have pleaded not guilty to charges of murdering kim jong nam on a february now the lead prosecutor in his opening remarks said the prosecution will
10:08 am
put forward evidence including calling expert witnesses to testify that kim jong un died after being swamped with a lethal dose of v.x. nerve agent and he said they will be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that these two women knew what they were doing and knew that what they were doing was enough to kill kim jong un now of course these two women are not the only thought specks in this magic has that for the north korean men but they are still at large police malaysian police have not been able to question them much less put them on trial now they are thought to have left malaysia a couple of hours after the killing was committed and they're believed to be in north korea there is an interpol red notice alert out for these men now of course at this stage we don't still know what the motive was this could become kara in the coming weeks but the two women have said told diplomats from their home countries that they are not guilty that they thought they were just taking part in a harmless prank for a reality television show that the u.s. president has dismissed as secretary of state's efforts to negotiate with north

korea as a waste of time donald trump's comments came in a tweet a day after rex tillerson revealed the u.s. was directly communicating with pyongyang mike hanna reports from washington d.c. . secretary of state rix to listen has been holding high level talks in beijing dealing both with north korea as well as the wider relationship between the u.s. and china this seen as a crucial part of a warm up in relations between the two countries and china would have welcomed to listens apparent commitment to pursuing a diplomatic track in dealing with north korea in an off the camera interview the secretary of state confirmed publicly that the u.s. was pursuing back channels in dialogue with the pure nyang administration this was the president's reaction less than twenty four hours later i told ricks to listen now wonderful secretary of state that he's wasting his time trying to negotiate with little rocket man followed by save your energy rex will do what has to be done
10:10 am
. president trump continued tweeting on north korea while he traveled the short distance from his golf club to another to watch the final day of the presidents cup tournament at parity unconcerned that he'd publicly contradicted his secretary of state but given that to listen appears to have given his commitment to chinese leaders to pursue avenues of dialogue on this occasion is particularly embarrassing to the country's top diplomat and his up and stated policy this is not the first time the president has publicly contradicted his secretary of state but given that to listen appears to has given his commitment to chinese leaders to pursue avenues of dialogue it's particularly embarrassing to the country's top diplomat and is often stated policy we're going to continue our our peaceful pressure campaign as i have described it working with allies working with china as well to see if we can

bring the regime in point yank to the negotiating table with a view to begin a dialogue on a different future for korean peninsula and for north korea this policy now reversed without consultation in a few thumb strokes and no matter how wonderful the president may describe his secretary of state ricks to listen is cutting an increasingly lonely figure in what is clearly a divided administration mike hanna al-jazeera washington. news is coming in from the united states from las vegas of there being multiple shots having been fired at a large crowd police is saying that one attacker is down at a shooting incident is on going is all happening at the mandalay bay casino on the city's strip reports coming in of multiple injuries details are still emerging but we'll bring you more details as soon as we get it we'll be talking to a correspondent in fact just after this because as well to age that is emerging
