had said but we will effort to do whatever we can within the time that we're able to work. well russia has vetoed a u.n. security council resolution which would have criticized iran for failing to prevent its weapons from falling into the hands of who's the rebels in yemen this is the first time russia has protected iran in the security council the fifteen member council did however unanimously adopt a resolution drafted by russia that extended targeted sanctions related to the war in yemen and diplomatic editor james bass has more from the united nations well we've seen some pretty high drama in the last few minutes in the security council on yemen to rival u.n. security council resolutions the mechanics of that gets pretty complicated i'll explain it in just a moment but actually the take away from this is not about yemen it's about iran russia for the first time in the security council has used its veto power to
protect iran remember a central point of the trumpet ministration is that iran is involved in destabilizing the region well if there's going to be any action against iran russia has just shown it will use its veto there were two resolutions to renew the u.n. xm mandate for its panel of experts and it sanctions in yemen one was a u.k. drafted resolution which included language criticizing iran the other was a russian version that didn't have that language and didn't have that detail in eat well it came to a vote a short time ago at the security council they voted on the two resolutions one after the other the first one they voted on the u.k. resolution with the iranian language in it and eleven countries were in favor of that but there were four others who were not they were starting china who abstained bolivia who voted against and russia who voted against which means that resolution
did not pass because one of the five permanent members vetoed it so then they voted on the russian resolution without the iranian language because and. none of the nations around the table wanted the sanctions in yemen which would be expired it would not to run out that was passed unanimously but an important moment in the security council russia backing iran very very strongly and sending i think a signal to the white house. south africa's new president has appointed his deputy and new finance minister and carried out wide ranging shuffle of his cabinet several run the post has replaced several ministers including shaking up the planning energy and public enterprise ministries a number of ministers have been linked to a growing scandal relating to the influence by private citizens of the public officials has this update for us from johannesburg. it's
not the overhaul that many ram opposed the supporters or many south africans who were hoping for a clear change of direction and an anti corruption drive would have hoped for many ministers from the previous cabinet who appointed by former president jacob zuma and implicated in many of the corruption scandals that afflicted his government have been reappointed but in different positions the most controversial of those reappointment is malusi gigaba the former front former finance minister he's been reinstated in another powerful position the ministry of home affairs one position that will point and that will reassure people who are hoping for a change of direction is the appointment of pravin gordhan the former finance minister he's been appointed in the ministry of enterprise he has a reputation for cleaning up any ministry that he's been in charge of so that will reassure people who were hoping for some change poses stuck with iraq and a hard place on the one hand trying to please the supporters and those who wanted
a complete change of house and a new direction on the other hand he still has to take the a.n.c. as national executive committee that put him in position as the leader of the a.n.c. and can recall him at any time to keep his job he has to keep different factions within the a.n.c. placated as well as trying to push through what he says is his agenda of cleaning out corruption and fixing the economy u.n. agencies say food insecurity in south sudan has reached unprecedented levels more than sixty percent of the population is at risk of starvation by july displacement due to ongoing violence and a weak economy is contributed to the crisis and the morgan reports from the capital juba. barely able to stand and too sick to eat that's what john told the doctors when she brought in her two year old son garen for a checkup but she cannot hide her grief when asked why he was in that condition. we have no food in the house i plan to basic grains but that's not enough and we
can't afford to buy food from the market every day sometimes we eat one meal sometimes we don't eat dr say getting his money and is 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 ok my 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 standers nation has been at war for more than four years in fighting 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 food and the situation is worse for millions of others around the country who have no access to markets and rely on aid to survive
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 in catastrophic things of food insecurity by july it is serious and that is why we are seeing a less drastic measures to can by the imagery and actors in this situation is likely to fall from last year we have an increase of food into fuel food insecurity forty forty percent so if you compare last year with the year is zero 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 the conflict 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 actually contributing to the food needs of what our imperatives.
lactase is to look at now the people who are in need and make sure we get the resources to provide them the assistance that in the needs that keep increasing day by day with adults and children at risk of starving to death and there are millions of people morgan out of there are juba the u.s. supreme court has dealt a blow to attempts by president onil trying to end protections for children of undocumented immigrants on monday ruled the trunk administration must wait before ending the program can really help it has the story. it's an issue that has divided americans for years the deferred action for childhood arrivals daca program was put in place by president barack obama it allows hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought to the u.s. illegally as children to live and work in the united states trump wanted to end it and plan to start phasing out the program in march raising the threat of deportation for many of the so-called dreamers but last month two federal judges
blocked that saying it needs to go through the legal system so the trumpet ministration tried to bypass the federal appeals court by taking it to the country's highest court on monday the supreme court refused to hear the case well it makes its way through the appeals court. the administration is appealing lower court rulings to the ninth circuit the same court that block the president's controversial travel ban that would deny entry to people from mostly muslim majority countries it's really sad when every single case filed against us is in the ninth circuit we lose we lose we lose and then we do fine in the supreme court but what does that tell you about our court system the supreme court announcement is a victory for roughly seven hundred thousand dreamers. for months they've been demanding congress act to protect them from deportation but congress has failed to come up with a solution the white house says it's not giving up but that legal process could take
months leaving the ultimate fate of dreamers uncertain kimberly health kit al-jazeera washington so ahead on the program. so you're right to be martha kearney killer like left. an emotional a pale eyes and sang sea cheese fellow female nobel peace laureates visit bangladesh to meet rangar refugees. in two weeks after a mass shooting as a florida school teaches return to what but questions remain a police action. out of there been some tremendous thunderstorms recently in queens and and they generate in the afternoon down new south wales as well affecting sydney and brisbane but the heaviest rain as record has been further north not far away from
