we begin with syria's war russia has hit back at the united states saying it's smart missiles should be aimed at terrorists not at the syrian government that comes after u.s. president donald trump warmed of a missile strike on syria following a suspected chemical attack in duma on tuesday he wrote russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at syria get ready russia because they will be coming nice and new and smart he added you shouldn't be partners with a gas killing an animal who kills his people and enjoys it well trump was responding to an earlier warning from the russian ambassador that any u.s. missiles would be shot down washington has been threatening military action after the alleged chemical attack russia's defense ministry has called it a fabrication saying there is no evidence of poisonous substances. but you put your flute but you have the peter which i want to stress on the ninth of april the day
after the alleged chemical attack in duma russian military specialists in the area of radiation chemical in defense and also medics arrived in the place of this alleged chemical weapons incident they took samples of the soil and collected the remnants of the so-called use of chemical weapons their expertise was conducted in it showed the absence of chlorine or poisonous substances but the world health organization says more than five hundred people treated in duma have symptoms which suggests the use of toxic chemicals they include difficulty breathing and disruption to the central nervous system the u.n. health agency says this is based on reports from its partners in duma demanding immediate on him that access to provide care for the victims and i want house correspondent can really help it has been monitoring events for us and so president trump suggesting that a missile strike could be imminent what's the latest that we're hearing from washington now. well we are told that there has been updated guidance from the
white house there will now be a daily press briefing that was not previously scheduled so we are hoping to get some clarification on the tweet that really left a bit of a collective gasp when many read it early this morning here in washington i imagine around the world trying to make sense of whether or not the president just use social media to almost in essence declare war certainly there's a lot of nervousness as the president's taunted russia but we know for days he's been working out a military response there has been this effort to build some sort of a case using videos and photographic evidence that in fact this chemical attack not only occurred but the syrian government is behind it along with support by russia this is of course something that has been denied by both russia and syria but the president is continuing to meet with his military advisers foreign policy advisers he's even canceled his trip to latin america at the summit of the americas to in the words of the white house oversee the syrian response so certainly appears that
there is an escalation in the works but again we're looking for some sort of clarification of what that might look like given the fact on monday the president said there would be some sort of decision made within forty eight hours and that window seems to be closing on that i think seems to have removed the element of surprise. yeah that's very odd for a commander in chief particularly one that on the president's rather on the campaign trail donald trump as a candidate mocked president obama for what he said was telegraphing his moves as commander tree chief particularly when it comes to iraq and certainly this seems to be with this tweet exactly what the president donald trump has done and what he said the word smart in that tweet he seems to be referring to the tomahawk missile precision guided missiles that were certainly used in twenty seventeen following a chemical attack in syria so there's certainly this sort of understanding that
perhaps the president saying this is what would be used again removing that element of surprise as you point out the other thing though we have to remember that donald trump as a whole so said this week in the cabinet room is that we may not know what's going to happen until after it's happened in fact he said his exact words were that the media and the world will find out what his decision will be after the fact. thank you very much from the white house can really help thank you kimberly. or a challenge brings us the latest reaction now from the russian capital moscow. on the russian response to u.s. collating tensions around syria is to say don't do anything that would destabilize the country any further door trumps your tweets seems to be a direct response to something that the russian ambassador to lebanon said recently in an interview to a hezbollah controlled t.v. channel which was essentially events if there was a u.s.
military strike against syria in any form then russian defense systems would shoot u.s. missiles out of the sky and hit back against the launch sites of those missiles now he seems to be slightly misquoting something that's the rub. in chief of general staff general gerasim of said about a month ago which was that if russian personnel russian infrastructure was threatened by u.s. strikes in syria then there would be such a response so we don't quite know whether this misquoting was intentional or not but the russian general response to all this has been not really to take donald trump's bait the foreign ministry says that any u.s. missile should be targeted at the terrorists in syria not as the foreign ministry puts it the legitimate governments assets governments and the kremlin has said rather dismissively that russia does not deal in twitter diplomacy that they are
more serious in their approaches. all to algeria now where three days of mourning of just been announced after a military plane crash is killing all people on board most were military personnel although the dead also include members of an independence group and dozens of refugees around a honda has mill. 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 was soldiers some of them accompanied by their families a number of people survived this family was among those being treated hurt when the plane crashed into a field close to where he was working. i could see that as soon as the plane took
off it started falling the plane flew over my head and came really close the wing clipped me as i was jumping to get out of the way and then it burst into flames have survived by the grace of god. the military aircraft was on its way to the algerian region of bash it stopping often to do it's a region on the border with the disputed territory of waste in sahara thousands of whiston sahara and have sought refuge here the polisario front a group that's been fighting for the independence of western sahara sit in a statement that thirty of the passengers will whiston so hiren's hitting back after getting medical treatment in now g. is the aircraft was a soviet designed to military transport plane the crash is likely the worst in algeria is aviation history made on one hand al-jazeera saudi arabia has intercepted a hoofy ballistic missile fired from yemen over the capital riyadh say they were
targeting the defense ministry in riyadh there are no reports of any damage saudi edge of fences also say they've shot down two unmanned yemeni drones in southern saudi arabia one of the drones is targeting the international airport the second was in just an province with the rebels that they were targeting saudi arabia's oil facilities just as a research fellow it's airpower in technology here in london he said such activity from the who sees us to reinforce their presence and manpower in the region. i think the timing is potentially more about keeping up a steady drumbeat of missile attacks to show you send a message to saudi arabia but also to other actors who are watching in the region and beyond that the threat isn't going away that the who these are not being militarily defeated. and probably hoping to send the sort of message that a wait and starve them out approach isn't working so perhaps the time is trying times come for something else i believe from the perspective maybe dialogue. i'm
not sure that's going to work but it's certainly an interesting factor that the these have kept up this regular drumbeat of strikes rather than trying to concentrate all their available assets for one cup big action police in indonesia trying to tackle the illegal alcohol trade after more than one hundred people died in one week from drinking bootleg liquor high taxes and a crackdown on legal alcohol in muslim majority in the nisha has created a black market among the pole step fasten reports now from chechen lanka in west java. people thought at first they were suffering from a bad hangover but doctors soon discovered it was much worse those who rushed to hospital just days after buying drinks at a food stall had organ failure and blurred vision when one hundred people have died so far one of them was twenty two year old her research her man who had just started working as a motorbike taxi driver together with autumn and he drank liquor from
