2:01 am
the next sixty minutes. here on. panic in hawaii an incoming missile attack alert goes out it was a false alarm and now an investigation is underway. the vatican has held a day for migrants and refugees for more than one hundred years but for the first time the pope will devoted mass to the millions who had driven from their. the tunisian government opens new age to poor families in an attempt to stop the public protests. not going to school. you know and why the legend of johnny cash lives on in some of america's toughest prisons more than a decade after his death. but
2:02 am
first a wise governor has apologized for an accidental message that was sent out warning of an imminent missile strike the white house has said that the warning was a state exercise that this is the moment it was broke us on t.v. . the u.s. pacific command has detected a missile threat to hawaii a missile named packed on land or sea within minutes this is not a drill and people across the islands received a warning text as well saying that they should seeks shelter against the supposed impending strike now hawaii's emergency management agency later confirmed that it was indeed a false alarm the federal communications commission says it's now launching a full investigation into the missing the especially not of happened we are investigating the sequence of events that occurred and never meet in emergency management which on the us for someone to be said it was
2:03 am
a procedure that occurs at the change of shift when they go through to make sure that the system is working and employees pushed along by. well we've been speaking to ryan ozawa who is the communications director at the hawaii information service. i was in bed with my wife i thought we were going have a nice relaxing day you sure the emergency alert and in her way we get them it could be a tsunami threat it could be a hurricane although that would give you more time to prepare but when i checked my watch and then my phone processing that message i turned she. was my brain froze i had no idea that i could see something like that i decided to let my youngest son sleep my middle son was freaking out and we were trying to find information you turn on the t.v. it's information infomercials and sports but then you get that automated message that only reinforces that something is actually happening if i wasn't
2:04 am
a twitter addict it probably would have been an even worse place because it was clear on twitter that it was a false alarm probably in about ten minutes but it took almost forty minutes for official word to come through the same channels that told us that it might happen we've had the possibility of a strike in the news for months there was coverage of us coming up with a plan here and false alarm or not new i mean we get a lot of tsunami alerts whenever there's an earthquake and we just have to sit and wait and see i think the bad news is that this was the first time like this and the timeframe is so small i mean ten minutes is barely enough time to kiss everybody and say goodbye text your coworkers and tell them how you feel and i think that level of panic is going to be something we have to be prepared for more i thought i was a prepared person and i'm a ham radio operator i'm always into the news and suddenly i was even with panic so i can imagine what it was like for everybody else. patty culhane our correspondent who is in washington d.c. so what was. the minutes also of terror the people of the home why has the white
2:05 am
house been briefed and has president made any comment about this. he has not made any comments and we don't expect he will as they say has been called for the white house already meaning that do you will not see the president for the rest of the evening when this all happened he was at one of his florida golf courses we are told again he was briefed and they did what they usually do at the white house is the deflected any sort of blame or criticism saying this is a state issue it does bring up the wider issue of what president donald trump is going to do about north korea you know this is a man who has taken to twitter to call on rocket man little man and really try to provoke him on social media but at the same time in his latest interview with the wall street journal the president said somewhat inexplicably that he has a very good relationship with the north korean leader and he was pressed on that
2:06 am
have you spoken to him and he said well i'm just not going to say it but i have a very good relationship with many people so leaving that out there that there is some sort of diplomacy going on that he's involved in or he was just simply saying that and this whole incident shows i mean this is a somebody who pressed the wrong button the parent lee and there's just an indication is that of of how easily we could inadvertently be thrown into a wall situation and this is something that many people are blaming president trump for creating the the environment the climate in which this is possible. well this is potentially even more scary because we know that this is a president who doesn't tend to get his information from his military or his own intelligence services he responds mostly to things he's seen on twitter and also on a fox morning show so the fact that it took so long for this to be corrected and the president could have responded yes that is potentially a very scary thing i do think you could cause a brings into
2:07 am
a wider focus exactly what kind of system they have in hawaii i mean if this is true and it seems absolutely insane i think to any person that simply one person pushed one wrong button and it wasn't even like a system where they came out and said are you sure you want to terrify an entire state more than a million people then you have to say yes or no so obviously there's probably going to be an impact looking at exactly how their system is set up but i think it's important to remember we're talking to two very different things there's the state system that scared everybody on the island and there's the military system and norad which is the north american aerospace command that has the ability and the duty to track all sorts of missiles they know instantly what a missile is fired from north korea they have very different protocols than what let's say some state director sitting on a wrong button has so this the fact that it scared people yes but didn't scare the u.s. military no all right good to know thank you very much pressure live from washington . now israeli security forces have used tear gas to break up
2:08 am
a protest against the detention of a palestinian teenager. supposes of the sixteen year old girl i heard to mimi have been marching in the occupied west bank demanding her release she was detained last month when a video of her slapping an israeli soldier went viral lawyers say that ahead could face jail time if she's convicted of the charges which include just sort of she's doing court again on monday imran khan was on the scene covering the protests before and after fighting broke out. protesters gathering outside of the house of i head to me and there's really two messages that i want to impart the first is to the palestinian leadership they want determined nonviolent resistance movement the other of course is to the israelis that i mean the family now we saw
2:09 am
like this whole area will not be bowed will not be broken and they should release both the mother and i had to be me as soon as i can now this is ahead of a cool to parents taking place. on monday now we've been speaking to palestinians here this is what they've had to say extend their message today isn't really liked wing government but our studios are united behind i'm behind her passion behind her resistance we are all here. from all over was going to include more people to this program i have is not alone to me family is not alone not be solid is not alone in the other hand we ask our friends all over the world to show a bitter sort of duty and to start really concrete action to isolate israel and increase the cost of a completion. and the kids to eat i want to tell the israelis we as palestinian people and palestinian children we will continue to defend palestine we will get x.
2:10 am
a mosque in jerusalem back and we will make jerusalem the eternal capital for palestine. it's right to start firing tear gas canisters into the crowd to push them back. now this was a peaceful protest the protesters are now very angry and the israeli army using as much as they can to push them back syrian government forces are continuing to retake territory from rebels in the southern province in the southern province. within the last seventy two hours government troops have taken control of around forty villages the soldiers are advancing towards the rebel held a whole military airport and that's in neighboring province simcoe ziona reports now from a refugee camp in northern syria this is rama refugee camp in northwestern and left by the turkish syrian border there are five thousand refugees here who came

2:12 am
mass for the world day of migrants and refugees on sunday paper francis is asking that government and society welcome protect integrate and help the development of those who were forced to flee their countries the international organization for migration reports of at least five thousand migrants and refugees died in twenty seventeen more than three thousands of those were in the mediterranean sea half of those refugees departed from north africa the un's most recent report says there are more than two hundred fifty million migrant around the world that's thirty million more since the year two thousand this year the u.n. hopes to achieve a world agreement ome migration right let's talk to father thomas reese now who's a jesuit priest and a senior analyst at religious news service is joining us joining us live from washington d.c. d.c. thank you very much indeed for talking to us what do you think the pope would hope
2:13 am
to achieve by performing mass on this day to day this being recognized by the vatican for more than one hundred years. well this pope has consistently for the last five years deborah since he became pope has been a strong advocate for refugees and migrants remember his first trip outside of rome was down to the buddha of italy where migrants were floating up on the beach again because of the dangers of coming across the mediterranean sea so he has been a voice challenging christians to welcome migrants to protect them to integrate them into european society and this is something he's going to continue to do. and very strongly and do you think that the message no matter how strongly to kill a hit by the pontiff do you think the message actually resonates with those who
2:14 am
makes to make decisions to make policy with regard to refugees and migrants well sadly i don't think so the pope is not a miracle worker i wish he was on this issue sadly he's had to repeat this time and time again the same message for the last five years because people aren't listening they don't treat their these migrants and refugees like brothers and sisters i mean these are children of god no matter what religion they are as christians we have to look upon them as the children of god. and it's not just the pope saying this is what scripture tells us and the did it because nineteen for example it says you should treat the alien who resides with you no differently than the natives born among you choose show love the alien as yourself this is very strong language from the scriptures to us about how we should be treating aliens
2:15 am
and did the scriptures make a distinction between migrants and refugees. i don't think the scriptures made those kinds of distinctions we know for example that the holy family jesus mary and joseph were refugees they had to flee into egypt and so mary carried jesus across the border i wrote a column in which i pointed out that jesus was a dreamer we have this classification in the united states of people who are dreamers who have come into the united states so this is you know this is something that is very close to the scriptures because there are all sorts of migrants and refugees that are talked about in the scriptures father thomas reese really good to talk to thank you very much indeed for taking the time. to be with you know. we've got
2:16 am
