5:06 am
spent much of the day sending out tweets about this proposed meeting he tweeted how he'd been speaking to the president of china the prime minister of japan getting support for those unprecedented face to face meeting he also tweeted that the north korea had not conducted a missile test since november the twenty eight indicating that he believed the assurances that had been relayed to him by south korean mediators and in that campaign speech in the course of the evening backing a republican candidate in a special election he repeated that he believed that north korea was sincere in its pledges they're not going to send missiles think of it they're not sending missiles and i believe that i believe that i really do i think they want to do something i think they want to make these i think it's time and i think we've shown great strength i think that's also of course. well there is some concern in washington
5:07 am
about the state of the administration's preparation for such a meeting should it take place there is no ambassador in north korea one has not yet been appointed by the trumpet ministration in addition the chief of state department experts on north korea resigned last week so many contend that the trumpet ministration not in a position to be properly prepared for any negotiations with a team that has been negotiating with various parties for decades this is a point of concern should this meeting ever take place and mike we still haven't heard anything from north korea on all of this not even a confirmation that is issued an invitation to donald trump should what should we read into this. well this is an important point because what we know is that this invitation was extended by the south korean intermediaries the south korean national security advisor who here met with mr kim in the course of the week
5:08 am
he then relayed this message to president trump yet there has been as you say within the last forty eight hours since president trample leapt into this particular scenario there has been no independent confirmation from any source within north korea that this message was in fact given so basically president trump is accepting the assurances of these south korean mediators that what they are saying from president kim is correct and that that is the basis for his decision to accept an invitation which actually has not been made. by any north korean per se thank you for that my can ally for us in washington. present transair former advisor has addressed the far right national front party at congress in france steve than in praise party leader may not bend for what he called her vision that pits nationalists versus globalist david tate's have reports from need france
5:09 am
arena le pen is still bruised by the scale of the defeat to emmanuel macro nine months ago but as quoted britain's wartime leader winston churchill failure is not fatal it is the courage to continue that counts a change of brandon a change of name a coming in lille this weekend but not it seems a change in policies a ballot of eighty questions sent to national front members just return of majority of ninety percent in favor of a bridge that referendum on the european union and ninety eight percent want a drastic limit to immigration which delegates here described as a tsunami. it's not often that the spotlight moves away from marine le pen the president trumps former chief strategist stephen down and managed it when invited on to the party platform we had the single greatest candidate in american history thanks all we had to do was let trump be trump number one
5:10 am
stop mass illegal immigration and limit illegal immigration to get our sovereignty back and to help our workers told the national front they were part of a world wide movement that history was on their side and it was the tide that would bring them victory after victory after victory. but it didn't happen for marine le pen and twenty seventeen many blamed her poor showing in the campaign's final debate with a manual macro. eyes are now turning on her twenty eight year old niece marion charlottetown although now retired from politics she has been identified as a rising star by bannon and was spreading her message united states last month i'm not offended when i see your president on the trail and say america first. in prague. i want america first for the american people i want britain first for
5:11 am
the british people and i want friends her for the french people. the arena pen hopes exercise in rebranding will help bring support back and allow us to form alliances with other parties to change or how to steer a lever. jason stanley's a professor of philosophy at yale university and author of the upcoming book her fascism works he says banon speech will help give the french foreign aid the boost it needs. what's the band's macit is is he saying let's not try to win over the unconverted let's be unabashed about our sentiments here and that's a message that's proven very popular in the united states of course and in europe as well big there are beyond his show and and law and justice party and poland are both showing that these strategies work in euro we have they constantly attack the
5:12 am
liberal mainstream media in the lawn justice party in poland ran against the media for not covering its crazy conspiracy theories about this blunt disaster orbán is constantly attacking the media and european elites so it's very dark very similar strategies here and there are ports connections between the russians the far right in europe and the far right in the united states and obviously the kinds of bar right tactics that were successful in the united states out of her millionaire and long history in the european countries that issue in other words he is twenty seven identified over two hundred witnesses in their investigation into the poisoning of a former russian spy the u.k. home secretary says more than two hundred forty pieces of evidence also being considered. paul and his daughter a u.t.i. remain in a critical condition in hospital after being poisoned with an evasion sonia they
5:13 am
believe pour some land that. this is a fast moving investigation which is coordinating intelligence officials senior cabinet ministers as well as security officials as well now while the investigation continues in seoul spree and all the locations there which have presumably been visited by the victims said basically pile on his door to yes there is also a plan being formulated as to what will be happening beyond this and from this point onwards and as the home secretary amber rudd said this is an investigation which is going to require some fine combing of the evidence before being pointed out who's behind it. this is a serious substantial investigation over two hundred fifty counterterrorism police from eight out of far left and counterterrorism units involved there's over two hundred witnesses involved and there's over two hundred forty pieces of evidence so
5:14 am
we need to give the police and all the investigative parts around them the space to get on with that with that in mind there have been tensions also rising between britain and russia with certain politicians and officials tentatively pointing the finger that perhaps this bears the hallmarks of if not a state sponsored attack on mr powell and his daughter then perhaps it could be that of a criminal organization this has been something which the russian government has been strenuously denying from its part saying that has nothing to do with such a thing but at the same time the british officials this does raise parallels with the death of mr alexander litvinenko a russian dissident who was living in the u.k. and was killed by radiation poisoning twelve years ago however there will there will be the matter of how do you. tightly define exactly who was behind this once
5:15 am
the air. didn't seals that officials are saying that they will be raising this issue at a nato meeting in july together with nato partners as to how to proceed with perpetrators of such attacks on british soil and that of course is adding to a difficult time tense time diplomatically between london and moscow plenty more ahead on the news hour including the u.s. and europe barrington a trade war yet but a meeting in brussels saturday laid the groundwork plus. i recall reporting from our drug maker a very solid who went all through who are above that from the remotest bourses owner and joe will be here with the sport as manchester united tighten their grip on second place in english for me any.

police in hong kong have detained a number of protesters as polls opened in the legislative council by elections that hold is expected to be bitterly contested as the pro-democracy camp looks to keep its one third veto brok in the legislative the election is seen as a litmus test gauging reaction to be jean's increase interference in the city's governance dva gopalan has more video yet edward you know is too well that victory doesn't guarantee is placed on the legislative council the former professor won in the twenty sixteen elections and while being sworn in he added a phrase saying he would fight for universal suffrage after a year in office the beijing government reinterpreted hong kong's constitution to deem him ineligible because of that this time he promises his supporters he has a plan ranging you are going to united and they believe in the end of the c.e.o. ours which we will discuss about the political rights of all calm people i know you
5:17 am
didn't see the twenty fourteen pro-democracy demo. it's known as the umbrella movement beijing has tightened its grip on the city as it is that you would like to have you got to meet his new hair his new cap our. bosses the legal his fellow man although he made kellogg already these selections to replace for ousted legislative councillors are divided along very clear lines the candidates are either probate are pro democracy. this is the other camp rallying supporters in front of the government headquarters the. party's main office is to stabilize home paul. i suppose these are the government's preferred candidates if they win the opposition will not have the numbers in parliament to block bills or question beijing sections but many here believe these candidates will help the city run smoothly help is
5:18 am
a problem i know i keep trying to write i think all it takes is a kind of. analysts say this vote is mostly symbolic a victory for the pro-democracy candidates would be an expression of frustration at beijing's increasing interference in hong kong's affairs former colonies macau and hong kong are the only territories in china where the public can directly vote for their government but many here say with beijing becoming more intrusive and pushing for more integration with the rest of china voting is increasingly regarded as something that matters less and less hollande al-jazeera hong kong. trade officials from the european union and japan are calling for exemptions on steel import tariffs imposed by donald trump the demand came during a meeting in brussels in which the e.u. threatened to impose tariffs on u.s. products trading partners have warned that trumps tariffs which come into force in two weeks good massively backfire timespan will see
5:19 am
a twenty five percent tariff on steel and ten percent on aluminum imports paul brennan has more from brussels. this is a meeting that had been put in the diary several weeks ago to talk about the root cause of the industries the steel industries where as and that is overcapacity but president trumps announcements on tariffs have put new impetus into that part of the discussions that have been taking place here in brussels and the opportunity for the european union trade commission and the japanese trade minister to have face to face time with robert light hisor the u. s. trade envoy is very valuable at the start of this two week period before president trump's tariffs actually start to be imposed there are going to be intense negotiations over this next two weeks to decide whether or not the european union can be exempted from those tariffs and the big implications if they're not are an escalating tit for tat kind of trade war involving all kinds of other products such
5:20 am
as peanut butter orange juice harley-davidson motorcycles blue denim jeans all of these kind of things that the european union are threatening they will the slap tariffs on in retaliation essentially for what's happening to the steel industry now it's not a foregone conclusion by any means that the european union will find that it's a deal has tariffs imposed upon it overnight president trump appears to be coming close to a deal with the australian prime minister on security arrangements there which will mean president trump won't impose tariffs on australia so there is a glimmer of hope that european union still produces will escape the worst effects of it but with this president it's not there's no guarantee at all and that is why the european union is seeking clarity from robert lighthouses here in brussels. as second round of voting looks likely in sierra leone with results from wednesday's presidential election too close to call both the ruling people's congress and
5:21 am
opposition certainly on people's body on around forty three percent with half of the votes counted candidates require fifty five percent to win outright the election itself was largely peaceful that rival supporters clashed on saturday as results came and runoff all must take place two weeks after the final results and no one has more from freetown many civil unions believe that this election is headed for a run off with fifty percent of the vote counted but is little difference between the two leading candidates candidate of the ruling a.p.c. party and the biggest opposition party in the country the p.p. all of them have scored more than five hundred sixty thousand votes the third candidate is hundreds of thousands of votes behind them now there are reported cases of. stuffing which the election officials say they are investigating now the election commission is expected to announce twenty five percent more of the

hong kong have detained a number of protesters us polls open in the legislative council by elections the vote is seen as a next missed test for the strength of the city's pro-democracy movement. now police in the united states say the gunmen involved in a siege where three hostages were killed was a former servicemen suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder disorder three female employees and the gunmen were found dead after an eight hour standoff at the nation's largest veteran tell me in the californian town of don't fail thirty six year old albert wang who for a year in afghanistan had been a patient at the home psychiatric facility now the state of florida in the u.s. has passed modest gun restrictions after the pocket and high school shooting that left seventeen people dead last month but in washington there appears to be little appetite for new laws john hendren has a story. the outcry for stricter gun laws in america has perhaps never been
5:31 am
louder or more emotional. this makes me sick millions of children are rationally preparing for six students slaughter and this is normalized we cannot allow our nation to go along with this any longer how many more times probably more children are going to be slaughtered the names have become an international shorthand for mass shootings in america littleton colorado river new tech orlando's police night club sandy hook and now portland florida but little has changed since last month's school massacre there in this hearing by senate democrats is unofficial the republicans you control both houses of congress are holding no hearings on guns president obama hugged me and wouldn't let go until i could catch my breath and stop crying it's different this time because people are taking it personally he said. but it wasn't different. at weekend gun shows across the us guns
5:32 am
are easily bought with or without background checks and the appetite for weapons seems insatiable just try to find a parking spot at this one in virginia one reason background checks are such a point of contention is what's called the gun show loophole while licensed firearm dealers need to do background checks on buyers any individual can sell to any other individual as long as they don't have reason to believe that person is prohibited from owning a firearm and gun shows are where they meet. even many gun aficionados are willing to support some change like mandatory background checks for all gun buyers should there be background checks absolutely absolutely the state of florida has passed modest changes banning the bump stocks that turned semiautomatic weapons into automatics raising the minimum age to buy a gun to twenty one setting a three day waiting period in arming school employees but on capitol hill the senate has moved on to banking reform leaving all proposals for new gun
5:33 am
restrictions on the shelf john hendren dale city virginia when i speak to david burnett who is the former president of the sudanese for concealed carry and co-author off tough targets when criminals face andras distance from citizens from ohio thank you very much for being with us on allison with your formal going ization students for concealed carry in the wake of pot and there's been a lot of talk about teaches in the u.s. president trump is in favor of this do you think that's a good idea. with a subtle distinction that we don't need to arm teachers i don't think we need to turn the break rooms into armories necessarily but there are polls show that at least twenty percent of teachers would be willing to get more information and i think that those who would be willing to volunteer and those who go through very high standards of training should be allowed to protect themselves and if necessary their school children in the classroom these are already very highly educated people and we already trust them with our children and unfortunately we've seen
5:34 am
there are a lot of the other systems designed to protect them cannot so i think that as a last ditch effort highly trained individuals within that schools should be on the table should be an option for discussion now the report that we just heard from john hendren talked about the gun show new paul i tell us about your view on that and can background checks be thanked if if so many gun sales are in them tick. well again i have to make a subtle distinction there's technically no gun show gun show loophole i think you were put in that distinction but what we're talking about is private sales in other words i have cash to you and you have begun to me but it's illegal for anyone to sell to a criminal or someone who's otherwise unable to get a gun under the law but if you're a vendor you do have to do a check so it end criminals less than one percent of criminals incarcerated study by the f.b.i. it obtained their firearms through private sales like that so the question still is with this work right most of the mass shooters in this country have not purchased
5:35 am
their guns at gun shows the criminals are going to exchange cash and do that anyway whether on the black market or they might steal their firearms so i think any policy needs to be thought through to the question of what works like i said the mass shooter in florida did not get his gun and he should be able to get his gun but he got it he got is going to store not not a gun show loophole or not not at the gun show to tell us david you know hi international audience help us understand why so many americans think it's important to have guns i mean we talk about the second amendment and not why is it important for americans to have guns. well there's three different reasons that americans value their firearms number one would be self defense and self protection according to government estimates approximately one hundred one hundred twenty one self-defense uses of firearms in the united states every single day as opposed to approximately twenty nine homicides so guns are used more often to save lives than they are to take them and so we value that we also like hunting that's
5:36 am
a big thing in this country and of course as the founders of the united states put that as a safeguard against potential governor and government tyranny and whether it's president trump or president obama i don't think that any president current president has been speaking about taking away due process and i think that that's a dangerous level of rhetoric and that the civilians always should be prepared to to protect themselves whether it's against an armed invader or a good. tyrannical government but it seems like many americans connect gun ownership with their personal freedom as soon as you start talking about these gun laws people start talking about their personal freedoms and you know the government wanting to violate their personal freedoms why is that well i don't think that we are unfortunately we're not able to trust the system and we need look no further than florida to realize that you have the police who are called to that shooter's home thirty nine different times you had teachers and school officials who are aware of his the danger that he posed to school kids in that school were joking
5:37 am
that he would be the next person to shoot at the school as anyone did you have the f.b.i. who was given specific reports about this person and you have the mental health of the social workers who didn't do anything and you had an armed deputy actually multiple armed deputies who showed up and didn't go into that school so i don't blame the students for being upset of letting the teachers should be upset but i think that the ability to protect yourself especially whether it's in your home or whether it's in your classroom is very important to us because at the end of the day the only person that's there to protect you every second of the day is you and if you're armed with nothing more than a pencil or a textbook to throw back that's not a loss all right well thank you for sharing your views with us i know a lot of people disagree with you of course but thank you for sharing your views with us david burnett former president of the students for concealed carry and author of tough targets i thank you for joining us there from the high. level now tens of thousands of refugees have fled to djibouti to escape the fighting in yemen three years after the sound of that coalition first launch airstrikes against the
5:38 am
rebels the conflict has engulfed most of the country but once you many's reach safety in djibouti the struggle for survival continues as food is in short supply on that idol has more from the portanova book. its food distribution the mark as they come for human refugees in the dusty. the law mohammed of the law has just picked his family's food a location for the month he came here two years ago when a missile hit and destroyed his house in ha ha self in the yemen now a mother had a hand look at the shooting that i say have given us there won't be enough for my family or even five days a situation is really bad. apart from the legal regimes people here also complain of conditions of the come. the sweltering heat and ferocious sun hardly been many away this is a place where many don't want to stay for long at one point this camp was home to more than six thousand refugees today one thousand eight hundred one lived here
5:39 am
most of them have either gone talk on the town or to the capital djibouti yet others hover tonty yemen profiling the un something terrible was known to life in this can. also have chosen to stay see the option of a shared choice we have nowhere else to go where can we go we are forced to stay here yet the massive insecurity and shortage of some basic supplies in yemen is forcing many more refugees to cause the sea are some but are cut robbed of the come just three days ago from the city of thais which is under the control of both the fighters and again the yemen we fled from yemen because of war and hunger the hutu militias are also making life unbearable destroying homes of bullying and arresting people who will it's a disaster back in yemen. nearly thirty five thousand people admit the jenna's southwards across the bubble mandeb straight to djibouti since march two thousand and fifteen from the beginning to put you open its doors to yemenis fleeing from

the war the country has been uprooted from foreign investment in recent years due to it started to look. but the extreme poverty is still widespread. officials here say that is little else they can do for the refugees beyond giving them safety and asylum one hundred at all just era of the djibouti meanwhile an international conference is underway in london looking at the consequences of the war in yemen gemayel and child reports. there is more more interest in the saudi led war in yemen particularly in the capital cities like london in countries like the united kingdom which are or have a direct link true that conflict which has gone on for several years now in so much as that it is u.k. weapons that are being used by the saudis and there are allies in bombing yemen the fact the united kingdom just announced a memorandum of understanding to sell even more fighter jets through the saudis
5:41 am
during the visit of the crown prince mohammed bin saddam on a conference like this which involves not only yemeni experts but also very strong preserve different think tanks and analysts is trying to set about maybe an alternative to this or a way out of this war some sort of peaceful solution earlier we spoke to yemeni diplomats and asked him whether the u.k. is approach in terms of selling more weapons assad radio was the correct one or in his view of what you need what needed to be done in order to find an end to this war the solution in yemen which is all of all parties knows it should be a peaceful solution t.m. and selling more pins t.m. and it would not help them many people to to reach a peaceful settlement for their puppet problems. i would hope that united kingdom and other countries will add certain weapons to saudi arabia to exact more precious
5:42 am
