to tell you all sponsored this protest in the south korean capital seoul. city not known for its snow in a country not renowned for its interest in winter sport is getting ready to host the next olympics. u.n. agencies say food insecurity in south sudan has reached a unprecedented levels more than sixty percent of the population is at risk of starvation by july well displacement due to ongoing violence and a weak economy has contributed to the crisis have been morgan reports from the capital juba barely able to stand and to think. that's what john told the doctors when she brought in her two year old son go in for a check up but she cannot hide her grief when asked why he was in bad condition. we have no food in the house i plan to because of greens but that's not enough and
9:19 pm
we can't afford to buy food from the market every day sometimes we eat one meal sometimes we don't eat doctors think. and it's not alone the u.n. children's organization unicef says more than one point three million children are at risk of being malnourished by july if not given assistance. son philip is one of them. i brought my child here because he hasn't gotten proper food for so long that the little food we do get he can't eat it and we can't afford regular meals. africa stand as nation has been its war for more than four years infighting between rival groups has claimed thousands of lives and displaced a quarter of the twelve million population it's also resulted in what the u.n. calls an unprecedented level of food insecurity as much as it is hard for those here in the capital juba to get through the situation is worse for millions of others around the country who have no access to markets and rely on aid to survive
9:20 pm
that total is rising the u.n. says six point three million or fifty seven percent of the population is a trick of starvation by april and the u.n. says one hundred fifty five thousand people are at risk of being classified as an catastrophic things of food insecurity by july it is serious and that is why we are seeing and less drastic measures to can by the unitarian actus in this situation is likely to form but from last year we have an increase of food into fuel and food insecurity forty forty percent so if you compare last year with this year is so to do better but the u.n. says without an end to the conflict it will be hard to fight against the hunger as long as you have to concede continuing people will not feel secure in their own being and where they are and without that you don't have them actually producing food and i could be contributing to the food needs of what our imperatives i should maintain lactase is to look at now the people who are in need and make sure we get
9:21 pm
the resources to provide them the assistance that any needs that keep increasing day by day with adults and children at risk of starving to death and there are millions people morgan al-jazeera juba. three c. male nobel peace prize winners of called aung san suu kyi to speak out about violence against range of muslims in the in march warning this year risks prosecution for genocide the women are visiting range of refugee camps in bangladesh have told their fellow nobel laureate to wake up to the atrocities facing the minority group the law doesn't recognize the written and has the violence in rakhine state on terrorists who are at mcguire is one of the peace prize winners visiting cox's for zone. the genocidal chore chair murder of anger people and the world has to do something to stop what so that's what but also we want to tear the burmese government to the international.

work nearly two weeks after a shooting at a school in florida they were greeted by supporters eyesight marjorie stone and douglas high school in parkland seventeen people were killed on february the fourteenth when a gunman entered the school and opened fire and one thousand year old former student has been charged with the shooting president trump has been meeting governess from around the u.s. with school safety at the top of the agenda let's get more from our white house correspondent kimberly how so what have we heard from that meeting kimberly. well the president has been holding a number of listening sessions this is a meeting of the governors around the united states here at the white house talking about the issue of school safety gun violence and how they can prevent a tragedy like we saw in florida in their own state there certainly is an indication the president feels a sense of urgency about this in terms of trying to put in place measures perhaps
9:24 pm
like an age restriction on purchasing a firearm ending the sale of bump stocks that don't increase the accuracy of a gun but certainly its firepower and certainly there was a lot of receptive support for the president's efforts and measures but at the same time donald trump being donald trump he managed to make news within this serious discussion particularly when he began to criticize the school resource officer that has been criticized for not going in to try and stop the gunman in florida the president has criticized him but also now the president making news saying that he would have had the opposite reaction of that police officer who was posted outside the school as those shots were being fired i got to watch some deputy sheriffs performing this week and they weren't exactly. medal of honor winners all right the way they performed was frankly disgusting they were listening to what was going on
9:25 pm
the one in particular he was then he was early then you had three others that probably a similar deal little bit later but a similar kind of a thing you know i really believe you don't know until you test it but i think i really believe i'd run into even if i didn't have a weapon and i think most of the people in this room would have done that too because i know most of you but the way they performed was it was really a disgrace. so many people horrified by the president's comments suggesting that he would have gone in to stop the shooter unlike the actions of that officer that was posted outside many people also fighting be comments by the president rather amusing even concerning given the fact that it is well known he took very strong efforts to avoid being drafted and doing
9:26 pm
any sort of military service in the years of the vietnam war at kimberley not until the u.s. supreme court has dealt a blow to president today insisting that he must keep these protections that he's trying to end for immigrants that can you tell us what end. yeah essentially what happened here is the supreme court said we're not going to listen to this case you're going to have to pursue it in the lower courts that have already ruled against the trumpet ministrations efforts to end a program known as dock of us deferred action for childhood arrivals was put in place by barack obama essentially it allows hundreds of thousands of children now adults in the most cases who have grown up in the united states were brought here illegally and if they're living without status of need to status to work need that status to go to school so louis president isn't in that program and those protections were running out march fifty directed congress to act congress has not
9:27 pm
acted and essentially the trumpet mistress was not very happy that the federal court said he could not end this program so they took it to the supreme court hoping that it would rule in favor not only did it not rule the trumpet mr ations favor it said we're not going to listen to this case at all you're going to have to work through the appeals process at the federal court level so what this means is this case continues and in the interim those who are seeking protections don't have protections but at least know they won't be deported as of march fifth can have at their lives at the latest from the white house can be thank you still to come on the news our anger in the occupied west bank over israeli plans for settling land to speak cases save lake chad experts gather in nigeria to find ways to stop one of africa's most economically important lakes from trying. out in sport we'll tell you why the fans may be missing from monday night's game in germany's top only.
