9:02 pm
major discovery. so the new u.s. president has promised a major decision over the alleged chemical attack in syria for the next twenty four to forty eight hours at a cabinet meeting trump again condemned the attack on the rebel held town of duma which syria's civil defense says killed at least forty people many of the victims were children the syrian government has denied responsibility for the attack trump said russia's president vladimir putin may bear responsibility and that nothing is off the table in terms of military action where you are studying that situation extremely closely meeting with our military and everybody else. making some major decisions over the next twenty four to forty eight hours. we are.
9:03 pm
very concerned what a thing like that can happen. this is about humanity we're talking about humanity and it can't be allowed to happen well the u.n. security council a g. to me to the next hour to discuss the attack in duma the u.s. is urging it to adopt a new resolution to condemn the continued use of chemical weapons in syria the un human rights chief has lambasted council members for offering only feeble condemnations saying the failure to react more strongly could have died quick don't consequences for decades. ok we've got correspondents monitoring events the united nations and in washington let's start with our white house correspondent kimberly how could. jump still very much playing up the possibility of significant action. that's right even the defense secretary echoing the president's statements that hit nothing is being ruled out right now and also questioning with regard to
9:04 pm
responsibility pointing the finger at not just iran russia for supporting the syrian government but question how this chemical attack was even able to occur at all the defense secretary saying earlier today when russia was the framework guarantor of removing all chemical weapons so putting that question out there is just one of many that is being mulled over in a series of emergency meetings that are taking place here at the white house the national security council meeting earlier today the president not present for that meeting but certainly his principals discussing and weighing options the president holding his cabinet meeting and later on today at the white house top military leaders will also be meeting with the president for a meeting as well as a dinner an extended working dinner as they continue to as you stated at the start of this program and that was that the president expects there could be a decision on next steps in terms of a u.s. response to that chemical weapons attack in duma as early as the end of the day but
9:05 pm
before the next forty eight hours or if you're returning some of that story from the white house let's go to new york united nations mark kind of standing by for us there in that meeting mark as we mentioned due to start right about an hour's time . so what can we expect from it do you think. well the way the meeting is going to be structured is that it will be opened with a briefing from the u.n. syrian unvoiced as well as the un's disarmament expert that will be followed by each of the members making some statement on this ongoing crisis within syria after that there will be discussion of a swedish resolution basically asking for free access to be given to the fact finding mission of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and then yet a nother resolution will be discussed this one drawn up by the united states which proposes a long term or a body with
9:06 pm
a year's mandate that would investigate such chemical attacks and apportion accountability or mike thanks very much indeed that's a picture of the united nations more from there as that meeting proceeds my kind of time in fact a lot world syrian rebel fighters have begun leaving do mary it's part of a russian sponsored deal which requires the judge show islam rebel group to surrender all prisoners before leaving so no one has more now from beirut. they are leaving from the last rebel pocket in eastern huta duma has surrendered up to eight thousand fighters from the rebel group and more than forty thousand of their family members and anyone else who wants to leave are being bussed out of the city the russian military has given them safe passage to rebel held areas in northern syria as part of a deal that also involved. releasing all of its prisoners many of them held for years and among them women and children they arrived at a government controlled crossing late on sunday. the deal came after
9:07 pm
a suspected chemical attack in the city that killed dozens of people doctors and rescue workers saying many of the victims suffocated informed at the mouse symptoms indicative of exposure to some kind of chemical agent damascus and its backer moscow dismissed the claims as fabrication it isn't the first time chemical weapons are believed to have been used by the syrian government against civilians hours after the attack agreed to return to the negotiating table it wasn't clear why the initial collapse on friday but when it did the pro-government alliance launched an all out military offensive to pile pressure on the rebel group the evacuation deal reached or what amounts to a surrender is similar to the agreement with two other rebel factions. who gave up after a fierce bombing campaign. was hoping for a different deal that would allow it to remain in control of duma but under the
9:08 pm
overall jurisdiction of the government that didn't happen what they did manage to get is a guarantee that russia's military police will enter the city and those who chose to stay won't be harassed or detained by state security forces much of duma is now rubble the largest urban center in the eastern suburbs of damascus has been a target since opposition fighters captured the area in two thousand and thirteen. it was the main hub of anti-government protests close to the capital and from there rebels were able to strengthen the government seat of power by frequently launching rockets into neighborhoods. seven years later the pro-government alliance is declaring victory but the seven week offensive killed nearly two thousand civilians this is the worst defeat suffered by the opposition since the fall of aleppo in late two thousand and sixteen sen beirut russia and syria have accused israel of
9:09 pm
carrying out airstrikes on a military base in central syria they say to find a jet struck the tire space in homes killing several people four radians are said to be among the dead the site is believed to be controlled by radio forces which back the syrian government's let's talk more about all of this with lawrence korb he's a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense and a senior fellow at the center for american progress lawrence korb welcome to the program how do you think this says a strike on the ties based fits in with everything that's going on right now well i think there are two things one given the fact that assad has used chemical weapons it's created an environment in which people could take actions against him or those supporting him including the arraigning and the other is that the israelis are very concerned with what the uranium the deal we now it has a law around their borders so they took advantage of this situation to launch an
9:10 pm
attack i had sort of a preemptive warning so russia and syria because it's a nine they suspected chemical attack that but nobody's ever going to admit it but the russians are saying the russian military says that medics did not find symptoms of chemical poisoning in patients in syria's duma. well again there's no doubt the russians are naive every time i mean they've been denying that going back to two thousand and thirteen but the fact of the matter is if you just take a look at the pictures they are particularly of those young people you know there were chemicals and the people on the ground talked about you know barrel bombs with these you know with those with those chlorine so there's no doubt that it happened the real question is what is the world going to do about it and what is the trumpet ministration going to do about it that that is the real question when this let's try it on through mr cool but it what should the international response be because it seems as if president assad things he can unilaterally and he which when he
9:11 pm
chooses yeah i think what should happen is ideally the united states with the british and french you've also condemn these attacks particularly walk call home the president of france who said even before if it happens again we're going to do something that would give an international legitimacy to the united states acting and send a signal to assad and the russians that just because trump has talked about leaving syria does not mean we're going to turn a blind eye to you what happens in the region say send a signal is one thing but doing something is another and if if the international community wants you nine thousand and make something happen what would that be. well i think what you would see is an attack particularly against syrian aircraft because remember a year ago when the president responded we just hit the the airfield and they were
9:12 pm
able to fix it you know and in a very short period of time i think this time you're going to have to disable their aircraft to prevent them from doing this again at least in the short term but i want to i think it's important to keep in mind that even if we do this the fact of the matter is in a couple of months they'll be able to do it again if they want because the united states and the international community is basically staying out of the civil war we only one in to defeat isis we weren't even at the negotiations that they had last week to talk about the future of syria laurence golborne it's great to get your perspective and appreciate it very much thank you thank you for having me. well coming up on this news hour the family of it american journalist killed in syria launches unprecedented legal action against assad's government. independent monitors question the fairness of it all bans election between hundred. and the hype surrounding baseball's breakout star isn't going away for him we'll explain
9:13 pm
why in sports. so then the facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg has apologized to u.s. lawmakers for a pretty breach affecting millions of users in a written statement he admitted his social media network did not do enough to protect users data so his back is in washington where hill appeared before two congressional committees on tuesday into wednesday he'll answer questions about the misuse of up to eighty seven million users personal information facebook is also contacting the affected uses giving them detailed information about what happened and how they can protect themselves all face but users will also be sent a link to see what apps a use and what information has been shed with various apps is going to take this on our first up with pretty culhane our correspondent in washington d c tell us more
9:14 pm
about what about you can say. well mark zuckerberg is up there on capitol hill right now behind the scenes talking to some influential members of congress but he's facing two days of what is expected to be some pretty tough grilling you know mark zuckerberg he really has pretty much avoided any public scrutiny sort of known as the goofy kid who invented facebook in his college dorm room and doesn't wear business suits is always wears that sweatshirt that a hoodie that's changing though people are very angry not just users but members of capitol hill they're responding to the scandal involving cambridge analytic. people who didn't and didn't know that if their friends. looked at apps that their information could be targeted as well that's eighty seven million people as you mentioned so but succored was pretty slow to respond to this but now he is trying to get ahead of what could be some pretty fiery testimony saying he's sorry that it's his fault that his company should have known should have done better that they will do better in the future promising to hire as many as five thousand additional
9:15 pm
members to look at security also saying that they will notify the members that were the facebook clients that were impacted in that they're changing their rules that the new standards for privacy that are in place going to be in place in europe are going to be used across the globe on facebook and it's also saying that there is a facebook is going to allow its dated be shared to academics so they can research whether or not social media impacts elections importantly for a company as rich as facebook they're not paying for it that's going to come from some foundations but right now on capitol hill he's trying to get ahead of this facebook this is been a huge disaster for them in this her terms of public relations he needs to make sure that it doesn't become a disaster for him the terms of more restrictions government oversight or her attention the government finds great thanks very much indeed protocol here in reporting joins me now in the studio is jennifer piper she's a lecturer in digital culture at king's college london welcome to the program
9:16 pm
jennifer. so trying to get ahead of this is probably he was just saying but is he doing enough. i don't think so because in the end he's we we know that it's now eighty seven million people have had their data breach his apologizing he's letting people know but he's not actually telling us what he's going to do what is going to happen in the future is he going to change the actual practices in terms of how that data gets distributed to their advertisers and ultimately is he really going to change the platform as a revenue source so he's just trying to troubleshoot your crisis if you like in the face but will just carry on the way that it always was absolutely and if you look at the history of that platform all they have done since its inception is open open themselves up more and more so that they can gather more and more information from its users and as a result if we look at the amount of money that they've made especially from advertising last year they procured forty billion u.s.
9:17 pm
dollars which is a significant increase from the year before if they're suddenly going to change and and start gathering uses data that means that they're going to not make any more money so this is done a lot of damage to facebook because it's and he will know that the they do need to react to they do need to change some things about how much damage would you say i think that it's impacted trust and we're seeing that in the news we see a lot of people that are showing how they can delete information a lot of people talking about how they want to quit facebook a lot of people are asking hey if you're going to make all of this money off of me we would like to have some money back as well and be part of this but they're not they're also not talking about what are they doing on instagram because they also own instagram what kind of you know is this affecting this platform is it affecting whatsapp because they because they own this as well so we're i think we're going to see the impact of this but at the at the same time this two billion users who are using facebook are they all going to quit tomorrow. the bottom line he's going to
9:18 pm
convince all those uses that enough is being done to protect their privacy and you would say that that is not we can. i don't think that they're doing enough i don't think they've ever done enough and if we look at the terms and conditions of facebook it says quite clearly actually everything here if you sign and agree to our terms and conditions we're going to take information from you if they're going to convince people that they're really there for them and they're not going to be selling their data to third parties and i think we need to see exactly how then are they going to be using our data where there is a point there is that if we do agree to these terms and conditions them then we have to adhere to the we may not read them but we you know we should do we should do but then at the same time one of the statistics i read is that they would take three days in order to read every single terms and condition that we're faced with on an everyday basis so is that really our responsibility to read through terms and conditions that are really there as legal documents to prove it protect platforms instead of users i think that governments need to be able to step in right now and
9:19 pm
these are also questions to have around policy what does privacy mean what data that belongs to us should really be allowed to be taken by these companies jennifer great to get your perspective on this issue pretty sure thanks very much for the thank you. independent monitors are questioning the fairness of hungary's elections which saw a victory or about when a third straight term as prime minister the organization for security and cooperation in europe says other candidates were not able to compete equally with all guns rooting for the party voters had a wide range of political options but intimidating and seen a photographic media bias and opaque campaign financing constricted the space for genuine political debate hindering voters' ability to make a fully informed choice the ability of contestants to compete on an equal basis was significantly compromised by the government's excessive spending on public
9:20 pm
information advertisements that amplified the ruling coalition's campaign message. well o'brien's two thirds majority would allow him to press ahead with constitutional changes in hardline policies on immigration general reports now from budapest. analysts to fatigue left wing activists thought an energized opposition would strike a blow to victor all bands power they were wrong maybe name starting our country hungry is still not there where we would like it to be but it's already started to go the way that it chose for itself we are going to go together this way in victory or been declared himself the defender of traditional hungary and values a familiar theme the enemy mainly muslim refugees poised to invade despite a large fence built on hungary's southern border in defiance of brussels also those who enable the pro immigration n.g.o.s and independent media. he's changed
9:21 pm
the constitution before how far might be prepared to go. it's really on for seeable i mean i'm pretty sure that you will go against civil society organizations you try to shut them down you probably try to limit their finances i think he will go against independent media outlets will still exist in the country and i also think that he might go against independent judiciary. there's a name for viktor all bands system of government he calls it a liberal democracy it's basically the primacy of populist nationalism over individual freedoms and along with popular economic policies half the voters of this country support it those who don't are in for a troubling four years but it just isn't a choice for us because they are. every rule hungary they are didn't respect the people in hungary they think they can do anything the hungry people.
9:22 pm
very much like these from. in the sun outside hungary's impressive neoclassical parliament building on the banks of the danube a military. god is on constant parade where once an e.u. flag flew there are now hand banners invoking nostalgia for a lost imperial past. these are all bans innovations in a country cementing its place as a standard bearer for rightwing nationalism in europe jonah how al-jazeera budapest . international shipping is the backbone of world trade transporting trillions of tons of merchandise each year but it's also responsible for a significant proportion of greenhouse gases when at a conference in london this week there are calls for the industry to clean up its act from computers to clothes to children's toys is estimated that nine out of ten consumer items filling the shelves of the world's shops get there by ship and ships
9:23 pm
use some of the lowest grade most polluting fuel there is it is the dregs of the refining process and emits not just ca two but poisonous gases like sulfur dioxide and oxide and because the pollution mostly happens way out at sea it gets a little attention well if the shipping industry was a nation it would be this sixth largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world critics say the sector is way behind the goals of the paris agreement which aims to phase out carbon emissions by the end of this century now one hundred seventy three nations at the international maritime organization a meeting this week to draw up a strategy to eliminate carbon pollution a negotiating text circulated on friday proposed cutting emissions at least fifty percent by twenty fifty and this fall short of the seventy to one hundred percent reductions european and pacific island states is needed but that figure is strongly opposed by nations like brazil india and saudi arabia who've raised concerns about
9:24 pm
the impact on trade and development and what alternatives other ocean going ships only powered by renewable energy may be some way off yet but all electric ferries are already at sea in scandinavia so let's explore this some more we're joined now by david paul who's environment minister of the marshall islands which under major threat from climate change of course he is here in london for the talks so mr ball tell us first of all how the talks are going and what you hoping to achieve by the end of the week well first of all are were are very optimistic we have to be optimistic of the what the outcome is going to be because the end of the. yes we are still in the early stages of the discussions we have all week until friday to have an outcome but what are you pushing for what what do you want to see done what you want to see agreed by the end of the week well we have for me for main objectives to have we have to have a vision to phase out greenhouse gas emission from the sectors to an industry wide
9:25 pm
quantify the mission's reduction goal three is to. be able to adopt measures to achieve the goals and then for an assurance that this proportionate impact on state from proposers surance measures should be identified then take into account before they are top ok but you're getting a lot of pushback from nations on this how are you going to convince them that this needs to be done because as we just saw like brazil and saudi arabia and india saying hold on we need shipping for our economies we can't we can't hold back on the way they get around the oceans well i as i say these thiele early in the in the game we have until friday to come up with with a tax and i and i'm getting vince that after everything is all said and done i think we should be able to have. a tax that will be very you know what would you say to them what would you say to those people who say look we're not going to do this yet it's too early there's no excuse there are no excuses because we have the technology in the market that will if all the ships in the world will
9:26 pm
deploy these technologies we will be able to be cop and eyes the entire sector by twenty thirty five. and and it is really a good business sense and good economic sense for them because their return on investment and then the net present value of these investments are positive but twenty thirty five that's less than twenty years away is that really possible it's chiva bull because there's no infrastructure in place at all yet absolutely because the technology do exist the market the market actually have the technology that can retrofit what is already out there for them to be more energy efficient and be profitable at the same time maybe the capital layout in the front end may be. maybe a lot steeper but in the long term they will get their. return on investment rather quickly because the technology to exist what is it that is give it to the shipping
9:27 pm
industry over the edge into this more positive arena as you would see it that's going to encourage them to to make the decisions a big financial and put to make that happen all they ask to be really at the end of the day has to be a political will by all the members because if you look at the the members of the union you have to oppose see they are the same members of the i am all so i think the political message has to be a line across across the entire spectrum because you know you cannot have a different message position at the u.n. of triple c. to commit to the climate change. the climate organization is called same thing as the i am or because the i am no is no different and this sector the shipping sector is not isolated from the entire climate movement all right well four days and counting we'll know more by friday let's see how the week pans out david who appreciate your time thanks very much to thank you. for still plenty more to come
9:28 pm
this. is really interrogators are accused of taunting jailed palestinian teen activists are had to meet bus. i don't think anyone is ever going to be brought to justice now. twenty years after the good friday agreement ended in sectarian violence in northern ireland many a family still want justice. we have sport coming up jamaican sprint star your hand blake is upstaged to become once again. how the raid that was in iran two days ago is still falling but now he's done this same frontal system just on the edge of your screen behind the tolls not completely caught and there are some bright top clouds here in the cape hell storms showers of rain lashley in beirut in lebanon and syria and i think significantly in

southern turkey and if anything this generation is circulation might produce rather more wavering in northern iraq northern syria and something to eat and there's the cloud bands still there run down through kuwait bahrain and iran to qatar and the society it's got the potential to generate one to thunderstorms but i think there's the potential has now been spent now that's a cloudy picture quite a dusty one more recently from the gulf states we think the wind is dropping is that slightly improved come wednesday there are still fairly regular shastri out the tropics but once again we generated quite significant rain in namibia botswana and south africa what top class here again unfortunately not so much for cape time but go to the east i want to get focus around this burg that's the area where shouted out to build during tuesday and wednesday they fade but it's still wet in mozambique.
