2:02 pm
we're waiting on to reason may any idea what she's going to say. i think she will announce some punitive measures against russia undoubtedly jane the question of course is how effective they'll be and to what extent the russians will retaliate themselves it's likely that britain will be looking at options like expelling russian diplomats targeted sanctions against certain powerful wealthy individuals using british legal instruments to freeze assets impose visa bans on the wealthy russians close to vladimir putin who've invested money who've bought property here in london those kinds of things i think are what the british are looking at but ultimately of course i think people in london know that multilateral action will be more effective let's look back at the events here in
2:03 pm
london of the past twenty four hours. is this the lull before the storm the british government says it's looking at ways of responding to what it believes is now rageous act by russia to this is part of a pack of behavior by that putin and his regime and you'll seeing this reckless support for the use of chemical weapons all the way from syria to the streets of. in our country and being encouraged by the determination of our friends to stand with us except that friends aren't so predictable these days the american president shortly after sacking a secretary of state who was highly regarded by the british government says it sounds to him as if russia was involved in the nerve agent attack but in moscow the russian foreign minister said britain was being obstructive refusing to give russia samples of a nerve agent so that it could carry out its own investigation but as you know it's
2:04 pm
russia is not guilty but russia is ready to cooperate in the framework of the chemical weapons convention only in the united kingdom takes the. to fulfill their legal obligations i cling to the same document such as the book london's luxury properties luxury shops could britain target russians who spend money here an anti corruption group estimates more than a billion dollars of suspicious russian wealth is invested in u.k. property well it's certainly the case that some of the individuals that we've identified in this research are well known to the kremlin so if they were to find themselves subjected to police investigations by unexplained well for days for example then that would send a very clear message to the kremlin the corrupt individuals and their illicit cash and no longer welcome here british politicians want to send a message to russia that they won't tolerate what they see as a brazen attack on british soil but they also hope to cooperate with russia on
2:05 pm
issues like containing iran and north korea's nuclear ambitions in other words russia's international significance presents britain with a diplomatic dilemma britain says it's ready to act but if this crisis escalates western unity could come under great strain. and what sort of unity then when it comes to the international community what has britain hoping to get out of this as well i mean. you saw john you saw boris johnson my report saying that he was encouraged by the support that britain has received so far and i think the noises coming out of nato and burley in paris and to some extent washington yesterday were encouraging for the british but make no mistake this is a big test of britain's international clout in the era of donald trump a man who has been ambivalent about russia at best you might say from britain's point of view and of course we're also in the era of breck's it which brings with
2:06 pm
the inevitable strains in britain's ties with europe yes britain would like concerted multilateral action so far it's been it's been words turning it into action it is going to be a challenge don't forget that britain has typically been at the hawkish end of the e.u. spectrum in relation to russia so for example those sanctions brought in in the wake of the annexation of crimea in twenty forty the british have pushed very hard for them to be maintained that sometimes has been a struggle countries like greece hungary italy not so keen some countries in europe with a sincere belief that those sanctions are counterproductive that they don't help dialogue with russia some countries are very heavily reliant on russian energy so frankly it's been difficult to maintain the status quo the british will be ambitious if they are asking for more action against russia thank you for that barnaby phillips and we will go live as soon as we hear from two reason may. take as president ridge of time better one says he hopes the kurdish held syrian city of
2:07 pm
free and will soon be fully encircled by turkish troops thousands of civilians are under siege of the turkish troops and free syrian army fighters encircled the town the u.n. is warning of a humanitarian crisis as the water supply has been cut turkey launched the military assault in general to clear syrian kurdish forces that control the region let's get more from alan fisher's live guys in top on the turkey syrian border allan tell us more about the military action and turkey's confidence or. well the turkish president was speaking to local government leaders in ankara in the last hour or so and during that meeting he said he expected that for him to fall by this evening you know just in the last twenty minutes at the turkish presidency has clarified his remarks to see what he meant was that the city would be fully encircled and we know that there has been a movement towards the city by free syrian army forces backed up by the turkish
2:08 pm
military so perhaps the president getting slightly ahead of his military commanders there by promising that the city would have fallen in the next few hours we know that there has been a humanitarian corridor established president and no one said that that's what he wanted to see tolo civilians to leave the city it has been established in the south of the city a number of people took advantage of it late on tuesday night a number of people have also used that on wednesday this is all part of operation all of branch as it was called the idea that the turks would push the wipe e.g. the kurdish militia away from their border don't towards our friend and beyond and certainly we know that the y.p. jihad said that they were bringing in volunteers civilian volunteers to create a human shield between themselves and the advancing three seven army and the turks and also that they were calling seven hundred fighters from other parts of syria to help in the defense of our friend while the assault on the city has moved so fast
2:09 pm
that it appears that the why p.g. the two measures that they've taken have done nothing to slow down the turkish assault i know the turks are seeing that probably by the end of whedon's day the entire city will be encircled at that point then they me try to use their military pressure to bring a political solution to perhaps see to the why p.g. and to others this is time to give up your fight and move away from the area and then if he refused to do that we expect there to be a full assault on the city remember there are hundreds of thousands of people enough for in many of them of move there. because of this ongoing assault the city has no water no internet and what we were hearing from on the ground is that in many homes four or five families are living there no because there's just so many people the president said at the weekend he expects there to be turkish soldiers in the center of our frame within days if they were considering the human and humanitarian issues no he says the city is encircled we wait to see in the coming

2:13 pm
diplomats say taylor since firing is no surprise and neither is the choice of his replacement the cia director mike pompei oh he's well known for his support of trumps policy trump is impulsive and trump is temperamental trump wants. once a neighbor's and validators more than he wants advisors tillerson didn't have many fans at state because of his plans to cut staffing by nearly thirty percent some senior diplomats quit in protest but the firings at state didn't end there at lunchtime the white house dismissed under secretary of state steve goldstein after he released this statement suggesting tillerson thought his job was safe the secretary did not speak to the president this morning and is unaware of the reason for his dismissal in any case tillerson said he had no regrets rex tillerson didn't lose his job because he didn't agree with the president analysts say he lost his
2:14 pm
job because he refused to pretend that he agreed if confirmed my pump ale will face a very high standard of agreeing with the president all the time especially because the president believes he already does rosalynn jordan al-jazeera the state department the world renowned physicist stephen hawkins has died he was seventy six children paid tribute to their father as an extraordinary man his work and legacy will live on for many it's still to come on al-jazeera india's highest court wades into a dispute that has divided into some muslims for more than twenty five years. hello take a look at the weather across asia this time in northeastern areas we got a frontal system pushing in from the northwest and some colder air up towards the

2:17 pm
again remind of our top stories this hour russia has rejected u.k. claims it was involved in the poisoning of a former spy and says it doesn't accept baseless allegations and will respond to any actions by the u.k. against russian interests prime minister to resign may has demanded to know why a soviet era nerve agent was used to poison sergei schiphol and his daughter. the former. president. is warning of what he calls russia's troubling behavior and actions urging its truth translation for his replacement cia chief mike pompei a. world renowned physicist stephen hawkins has died he was seventy six his children paid tribute to their father as an extraordinary man his work in legacy will live on for many years. into supreme court has begun final hearings into the
2:18 pm
discussion destruction of a sixteenth century mosque twenty five years ago far right hindu nationalists stormed and demolished the mosque claiming it was built on top of a temple destroyed by muslim rulers now judges will determine who the holy site belongs to pressure and bush on is a public interest lawyer joins us live from new delhi very good to see you and have you with us i believe you were in court can you tell us what came out alive. today they basically dismissed several intervention petitions that had been filed by the people there were three regional parties to the dispute there was a muslim board. and there was another body called the name on here kyra so they. don't get these.
2:19 pm
and. they also say that they will decide whether any issue has been decided by another judgment that a mosque is not an essential part of. whether this issue needs to be reconsidered by the constitution of the supreme court and they have started hearing back issue and they have concluded they would resume the hearing on the twenty third i can summon. help ok what really is at the heart of what makes it so important. what makes it important is the fact that this has been. kind of simmering. dispute which was made into a political issue by the party who tried to sort of mobilize voters
2:20 pm
across the country on the basis that. this place is the birthplace of large who was a guard. and that therefore. the mosque was built over a temple which was dedicated to the lord and that this was the ground and therefore it should be restored back to the in those and they went on to demolish the sixteenth century mosque which was a very large mosque which had been standing for more than one hundred years and it was. demolished and then in a shocking act of vandalism while the legal disputes with bringing in the court as to who should have ownership and possession of the site so that's why it's politically important but the issues are really who was in positions and what. and therefore whether the suits filed by the various parties are barred by time whether this mosque will really build hindu temple go in my view that is an
2:21 pm
irrelevant question if it was built more than four hundred years ago whether the hindus really believe that this is the place. nor ground was born. muslims have been using the mark. mark i'm sorry we haven't really tried yes sorry thank you very much but very good to get your thoughts thanks. says it has a list of more than three hundred seventy who is ready to take back after their fate a military crackdown bangladesh originally provided a list of more than eight thousand names but minimise ministry of foreign affairs says it couldn't verify all of their identities it's unclear whether the referenda on minimize list want to return many say for their safety if they go back across the border for and so he has reported extensively from him joins us now from kuala lumpur why such a small number and what else did officials say at the press of. that's
2:22 pm
right three hundred seventy four names is really just a tiny drop in the ocean compared to the number of refugees who fled to bangladesh now as you said this list comes from a list of about eight thousand names that bangladeshi officials have provided to them myanmar counterparts but myanmar said the information on on that list was lacking as there wasn't enough documentation including fingerprint records or photographs so they weren't able to verify all of those names now young officers were also keen to point out point out that they've taken a very broad and liberal interpretation of what constitutes proof of residency because that's essentially what people have to prove to show to be able to return home to me that they're willing to accept not just national registration cards but also temporary i.d. cards as well as business ownership documents and there was a sense that at the press conference no no officials were very keen to point out that they are doing all they can to start the repatriation process going especially
2:23 pm
since we've heard in the last week bangladeshi officials saying he didn't think the repack process was likely to succeed and blaming the myanmar government which he described as an evil rogue government thanks for that flowing story. human rights groups of criticized a deal between italy and libya aimed at curbing migration they say it's led to even more appalling conditions with people hoping to cross the mediterranean sea one refugee from the told he was captured bought and sold while in libya before seeking safety in tunisia. reports. life may still be hard but at the very least mohammed feel safe here in tunisia. today he's picked up a job cleaning a beachside villa work that helps keep his mind off the horrors he experienced in libya so how do you always welcome it's enough if you run away from diminishes they
2:24 pm
feel free to shoot you because well it's a cheap mohammad left his home in the air because the people of his town were being terrorized by boko haram he had hoped to cross the mediterranean and settle in europe but after reaching libya he found himself stuck in a vicious cycle of violence repeatedly captured and beaten by militias who would always demand payment for his release. at one point he couldn't afford to buy his freedom from one of the armed groups that had imprisoned him so the fighters found another way to get the money. like it they sold me i was sold and i'm. forced to work for the man who bought him mohammed was in slave for months before being freed why the inside exam is if i am a human just like cannot be good and only difference between me and him is that god created me with that skin and he was white this is not my fault god created me like
2:25 pm
this i was very upset because i didn't hold any value to any of them i wasn't worth anything to them as if i'm not even a human being which like many others in his position mohammed eventually made it onto a smuggler's boat but it never reached italy. instead he ended up in southeastern tunisia humanitarian workers hearings are aziz expect the migration crisis to continue that's why they're asking the tunisian government to do more to protect the rights of migrants and refugees now mohammed lives at a center in nearby made mean run by the tunisian red crescent dr manji slim who heads the southern tunisian branch of the aid organization says that as long as human traffickers continue to exploit the chaos and conflict in neighboring libya things won't improve the lot of. them the chin is in a thought he's had many other issues that the focusing on so we hope that the international community will remember these migrants and help them to achieve
2:26 pm
a solution either with a voluntary return to their countries or with integration or by helping them seek asylum. even though he's barely making ends meet mohammed still feels lucky. to have escaped the kind of trauma most people could never imagine to be in a place where despite the difficulties he says he's being treated like a person. zeese tunisia germany's chancellor angela merkel has been re-elected for a fourth term parliament voted by three hundred sixty four to three hundred fifteen in favor the new government will be sworn in nearly six months after national elections earlier this week merkel's christian democratic party at the very end party and the center left social democrats signed the official agreement to form a grand coalition officials from football's world governing body fee for a meeting in greece after the president of one of its best known teams marched onto the pitch with a gun. was enraged when
