welcome to the program the u.s. president has warned russia that missiles will be coming to target syria's government donald trump's tweets was a response to a warning from russia that american missiles would be shot down russia to shoot down any and all missiles fired at syria this week tarted great get ready russia because they will be coming nice and new and smart to you shouldn't be partners with a gas killing an animal who kills his people and enjoys it the u.s. has been threatening military action after a suspected poison gas attack in the rebel held town near damascus well we have a challenge standing by in moscow for a reaction out of russia will be live to him in a moment but first let's go to our white house correspondent and kimberly healthcare there would have been a great deal of anticipation kimberly what the president would do next and these tweets seem to sort of ramp up the rhetoric at least. certainly i mean
this almost amounts to a declaration of war by the u.s. president on social media certainly something we've never seen before this president tends to speak very boldly and brashly often as a negotiating tactic it's unclear whether that is what is taking place right now but certainly the white house has been very clear repeatedly in the last forty eight hours the president saying that he would make a decision that window seeming to close very soon and still we have not heard from the white house how the response will be with regard to what they say is amounts to a chemical attack in duma but certainly the white house has said repeatedly all options are on the table now the president another one of his tweets seemed to almost be pleading with russia to change its behavior noting the fact that relations between the two countries deteriorating to the point of the cold war levels certainly there is no question though that the white house is building a case for some sort of military response we've seen that in terms of the consultations that have been going on the emergency sessions on syria with meeting
with top military leaders of course the white house says it is also building a case in terms of evidence looking for largely with videos and photos that in fact a chemical weapons attack has occurred something that we should know russia and syria say it is not the case as well we've seen the president canceling his trip to latin america something that he said was necessary because he needs to oversee the syrian response as well as the fact that he's made telephone calls with the leader of the france as well as britain saying that there would be some sort of ford nation that's taking place so when you put all of this together in terms of its totality certainly it does appear that something is imminent but again no signal yet from the white house on when this could take place it was cool so you can believe the president likes to keep things close to his chest to a certain extent but it was really the baikal miscarry society again. absolutely this is something that is really striking in all of this and
particularly since we saw donald trump on the campaign trail in two thousand and sixteen mocking former president barack obama saying that he was telegraphing foolishly and this hurt the u.s. mission in iraq so this is something that he said he would never do he doesn't like to telegraph his moves but it appears that's exactly what he's done removing that element of surprise and even sort of revealing the tactical methods that are under consideration that tweet when he uses the word smart essentially what he's pointing to is the use of tomahawk missiles that are guided with precision satellite technology and certainly we've seen the use of this before in twenty seventeen in april when the u.s. launch strikes on that syrian air base whether or not that is something is being considered to get it certainly appears that that is what is under discussion revealed by the president's tweet something that he said he would not do but now has done mostly what has happened certainly in the coming hours for the moment kimberly thank you let's cross over to a correspondent rory channel and susan moscow i mean the russians really have said
what they had to say that they've really hidden the thought that they would defend syria come what may so that statement so really no great surprise except pretty their reaction to what mr trump has to say. yes so they have responded to donald trump's tweets we've had comments from various lawmakers who said things like these are irresponsible comments also that these tweets have horrified the world is a car of a who's the foreign ministry spokeswoman has said that the u.s. is missile shouldn't be targeted the legitimate government of syria has been fighting as she puts it international terrorism on its territory for several years rather the u.s. that smart missile should actually be targeting the terrorists themselves she or also went on to stoke the kind of conspiracy angle of this by saying we're chemical
weapons experts warn that smart missiles might destroy all evidence of the use of chemical weapons on the ground perhaps she suggested this whole idea was actually to quickly cover up the provocation that russia has long been saying that the united states is engaged in regarding this chemical weapons attack with smartness are so that international experts would have nothing to look for as evidence when they get to the scene that's what she wrote on facebook and of course we are expected to go to the foreign ministry later in this program for a statement need to hear what they have to say rory but in the meantime the defense ministry that that in the meantime the russians have been making overtures to the p c w i mean what are they planning to. yeah well these are the chemical weapons experts them are is a car of it was referring to in a facebook post and they have been invited by russia russia says that it will
guarantee their safety and security sergey lavrov the russian foreign ministry foreign minister was saying yesterday that we cannot have another situation like we had in the aftermath of the can she couldn't chemical gas incidents where the o.p.c. w. didn't send experts to the actual sites because they fear for their own safety so that the location wasn't secure enough well this time saying we can absolutely guarantee the safety and security of chemical weapons experts and they should go there they should get samples they should send them for analysis etc now the o.p.c. w says e's planning such a trip at the moment is not necessarily because it's been invited but because that's what it should do anyway bans it's asking the syrian government to make the necessary arrangements to facilitate this trip we don't know exactly what it's going to be but in the coming days now the o.p.c. w.
has said that if it does get to the location and it does collect evidence and it does do what it's supposed to be doing there this will not be for apportioning blame it will just be collecting evidence and remember of course that yesterday in the un security council their work competing draft resolutions being tabled by the united states and its allies and russia both of them calling for an independent inquiry into this incident both of those draft resolutions were torpedoed by the opposing side so diplomatically we're still at an impasse but the o.p.c. w. is planning to visit duma will full member leave rowin of course come back to that situation changes thank you. as if it's the us now where the republican house speaker paul ryan says he won't run for reelection he'll serve out his current term before retiring in january ryan's announcement follows a series of regional election wins for democrats and mounting republican concerns
about holding on to their majority in the house of representatives present donald trump acknowledged the decision on twitter saying ryan would leave behind a legacy of achievement. a military plane has crashed in algeria killing at least two hundred and fifty seven people now it happened near the blue fabric military airport south of the capital algiers maria honda has more. two hundred fifty seven people were on board the military aircraft it went down shortly after takeoff crashing near a military airport south of l.g. is the defense ministry says that many of the passengers were soldiers some of them accompanied by their families a number of people survived this family was among those being treated hit when the plane crashed into a field close to where he was working going to pull over i could see that as soon as the plane took off it started falling the plane flew over my head and came

welcome back you're watching out of their arms the whole robin a reminder of our top stories president donald trump has warned russia on twitter that missiles will be coming hours after russia's ambassador to lebanon said his country will shoot down any american missiles launched against syria's government it follows international outrage over a suspected chemical attack in the town of duma on saturday a military plane has crashed in algeria. south of the capital algiers his defense ministry says at least two hundred fifty seven people have been killed most of the victims were military personnel. also u.s. republican house speaker paul ryan says he won't run for reelection ryan's
announcement follows a series of regional election wins for democrats a mounting republican concerns about holding on to their majority in the house of representatives. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg is testifying u.s. congress for a second day about the massive breach of users private data he sat through a five hour grilling on tuesday when he admitted to making a mistake. let's have a quick listen to his parents be full the house of representatives and then and calmness committee and ourselves to be a financial institution although you're right that we do provide tools for people to send money so you've mentioned several times you started facebook in your dorm room in two thousand and four fifteen years two billion users and several unfortunately breaches of trust later facebook's today is facebook today the same kind of company you started with a harvard dot edu email address well mr chairman i think we've evolved quite
a bit as a company. when i started it i certainly didn't think that we would be the ones building this broad of a community around the world i thought someone would do it i didn't think was going to be us so we've definitely grown and you've recently said that you and facebook have not done a good job of explaining what facebook does and so back in two thousand and twelve and twenty thirteen when a lot of this scraping a user and friend data was happening it ever crossed your mind that you should be communicating more clearly with users about how facebook is monetizing their data i understand that facebook does not sell user data per se in the traditional sense it's also just as true that facebook's user data is probably the most valuable thing about facebook in fact it may be the only truly valuable thing about facebook why wasn't explaining what facebook does with the users data higher priority for you as a co-founder and now as c.e.o. mr chairman you're right that we don't sell any data and i would say that we do try
to explain what we do is as time goes on it's a it's a broad system you know every day about one hundred billion times a day people come to one of our products whether it's facebook or messenger instagram or whatsapp to put in a piece of content whether it's a photo that they want to share or a message they want to send someone and every time. there's a control right there about who you want to share it with you want to share it publicly to broadcast it out to everyone do you want to share with your friends a specific group of people do you want to message it to just one one person or a couple of people that's the most important thing that we do and i think that in the product that's quite clear i do think that we can do a better job of explaining how advertising works there is a common misperception as you say that is just reported often keeps on being reported that for some reason we sell data i can't be clear on this topic we don't sell data that's not how advertising works and i do think we could probably be
doing a clearer job explaining that given the misperceptions that are out there live pictures solve. the chief executive of course facebook speaking to the house of representatives and the g. and commerce committee let's bring in as she had her town say in washington d.c. of course one of the committee members that she had to say the most valuable element to all facebook is mostly it's it's use the data so he's getting really much of a grilling in the house as he was perhaps in the senate. yeah but i think the reason why we heard about rather pointed exchange just there is because there was a perception during the senate hearing on tuesday that some senators didn't really grasp the facebook business model they were kind of suggesting that facebook sold users data facebook doesn't sell data it offers targeted advertising and of course the ability of apps to sort of take data from us but it doesn't actually sell data itself or that was a point which led to some observers of the senate hearing on tuesday thinking that
zuckerberg did pretty well on tuesday he was allowed to evade questions sometimes it seemed at some who didn't really understand the facebook model amde another reason why is ok but was thought of done quite well on tuesday was there was a sense that senators weren't prepared yet to legislate to regulate facebook through congress through the lord they seem still despite some pointed questions to be willing to allow facebook to fix itself rather be for the government to step in to regulate more forcefully what facebook does or perhaps even to break facebook up because of its monopoly status so what's the aim then of mark zuckerberg speaking to this committee of energy and commerce i mean what did they hope to get out of this meeting all of this you might say conversation interrogation however you want to describe it. well clearly there's a great deal of public alarm about how big facebook is and the amount of power it has over our information now that is the question the how what does congress want
to do and that's why do they want to actually take forceful action to legislate all we just got to have a nice bit of grandstanding in congress once again and i was about. to go back in and take care of things themselves without any level of action that's what facebook's stockholders are hoping for there is a hope that this committee they have a better investigative arm so perhaps the members of congress on this committee will be slightly better prepared they'll be able to to seize upon any evasions for a mug zuckerberg and there were plenty of evasions on tuesday about his one hope for example i mean questions. on whether facebook is even a monopoly about zuckerberg didn't answer that question on tuesday questions on the harvesting of data for example the cambridge analytical scandal that we've been covering a great deal of al-jazeera was there a decision by facebook management not to inform uses that that data was being harvested by came out of the figure for example questions on discrimination. whether they track our movements online facebook even when we're not logged into
face but we know that they do do that but again zuckerberg was allowed to evade that point in the senate testimony the question is now having seen the senate testimony where the house representatives will be a bit harder on zuckerberg she up on choose day we heard one of the senators say tomorrow. if there's a will there's a way is there a way. to six the problems that have been highlighted in the lead up to the senate hearings and house savings in your opinion do you think that this is actually resonating with mark zuckerberg and his officials in facebook and do you think there is a will to try and sort the problem out before it gets any worse. i mean just judging by the stock market reaction to testimony on tuesday shows up four and a half percent it's clear that those who are making a great deal of money out of facebook that they don't think that there is a will in congress to act forcefully divisively through legislation against
facebook and there again i'm afraid we'll just i mean it's very difficult to to to discern that that level of commitment amongst congress that something now must be done we did get that sense on tuesday that members of congress are still willing to allow facebook to fix itself and that's very good news for those october perhaps not the greatest news for consumers who are worried that their data is being harvested in ways we don't even know about well for the most we'll leave it there and continue to monitor what mark zuckerberg has to say thank you. a palestinian who says he was shot by a palestinian man who was shot by an israeli sniper the video that emerged this week insists that he was not a threat to mir was hit in garner in december which is when the video was filmed it depicts israeli soldiers celebrating the shooting how the force that went to talk to him. it's. dark it is nearly four months into an eighteen month recovery from

injured sixteen hundred with live fire many like a shot in the lower leg often with devastating consequences israeli military is promising disciplinary action against the soldiers who shot the video and who celebrations it says did not suit the degree of restraint expected there will be no action against the soldier who pulled the trigger israel has made it clear that targeting unarmed protesters who approach the fence remains official policy ahead of the next round of protests on friday harry forsett al-jazeera gaza. south africans have said their final goodbyes to the woman many call the mother of the nation winnie mandela now the memorial service was held and so where to where she lived and fought against apartheid the activist and former wife of south africa's first black president nelson mandela died last week at the age of eighty one when he was no uncompromising methods cheering the struggle katherine saw he has more from sweater. we're in to celebrate sorry mood here long as it is
