thank you for joining us russia has told the united states its smart missiles should be aimed at terrorists not of the syrian government this follows u.s. president on trump's warning of missile strikes on syria following a suspected chemical attack in duma on twitter president from for 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 animal who kills his people and enjoys it. trumps tweet followed an earlier warning from a russian ambassador that any u.s. missiles would be shot down he also suggested that the launch sites would be targeted 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
. but you have there 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 as part of that statement the world health organization says more than five hundred people treated in duma have symptoms which suggest exposure to toxic chemicals they include difficulty breathing and the structure into the central nervous system the u.s. health agency says this is based on reports from its partners in duma it's demanding immediate unhindered access to provide care for the victims. well our white house correspondent kimberly halkett is monitoring events from washington so it looks like twitter diplomacy is alive and well at the white house what else has
trump had to say. well certainly we're waiting to hear from the woman who speaks on behalf of the president the white house press secretary calling in and scheduled briefing for about thirty minutes from now but they rarely start on time i should add the other thing that we've seen a bit of movement here at the white house reports wide reports that general mattis the defense secretary is here at the white house although i can't confirm that personally i did not see him walk in but certainly that is being widely reported here in the united states this is certainly an escalation that has been going on barbara for days we've seen the president meeting with top military leaders not just general mattis but others here at the white house we've seen him meeting with emergency sessions with principals of the national security council and of course he's also held and been conferring with world leaders like the french president emanuel macra as well as the british prime minister treece i'm a essentially what we've got here is the united states building
a case with photos with videos of a chemical attack that has occurred despite the denials by russia as well as syria that this is the case now certainly the president has also done other things like canceling his trip to latin america because the white house says he wants to oversee the response to syria but at this hour it's still unclear what exactly that response is so kimberly the president is coordinating or at least talking to a lot of other western powers but he does appear to have removed the essence of surprises something which of course in the past he said he'd never do but then again in the past the also said he was likely going to pull out of syria so i guess a lot of conflicting messages coming out of the white house. it's pretty hard to discern right now what this white house to syria policy is at this hour because it seems to vacillate depending on the president's statements or not on the day you're right just a week ago he was saying you want to get out of syria now we're seeing this military escalation reports of destroyers moving closer to the region as well you
talk about this removing the element of surprise and that's exactly what that tweet did that you talked about at the beginning of the store the fact that the start of the show rather the fact that he has in the words smart said that he would use the tomahawk missile something we saw the united states use one year ago in syria so certainly the president is telegraphing something he mocks former president barack obama for doing but now appears to be doing himself carefully how could the white house where of course waiting for that news conference i know you will be there to analyze it with us for the moment thank you well as we heard earlier a russian ambassador did say that any u.s. missile heading into syria would be shot down rory chalons now has more reaction from moscow. well the russian response to escalating tensions around syria is to say don't do anything that would destabilize the country any further dollar trumps earlier 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 that if there was a u.s. military strike against syria in any form then russian air 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 the russian chief of general staff general gerasim off 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 as sides governments and the kremlin has said rather dismissively that russia does not deal in twitter diplomacy that they are more serious in their approaches. now where three days of mourning have just been announced after a military plane crashed. killing everyone on board most were military personnel of the dead also include members of an independence group and dozens of refugees there on the hong 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 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 i've survived by the grace of god the military aircraft was on its way to the algerian region of bash it stopping all fintan do it's a region on the border with the disputed territory of waste in sahara thousands of whiston sahara and have sought refuge there 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 heading back after getting medical treatment and now g. is the aircraft was a soviet designed to military transport plane the crash is likely the worst in
algeria is aviation history maidana honed al-jazeera. saudi arabia has intercepted a who c. ballistic missile fired from yemen over the capital riyadh the who is easy to say that were targeting that the fence ministry in riyadh there are no reports of damage. well saudi air defenses also say they've shot down two unmanned yemeni drones in southern saudi arabia one of the drones was targeting the international airport the second was in the province who the rebels a said they were targeting saudi arabia's oil facilities just in broke is a research fellow of air power and technology here in london he said such activity from the who these is it to reinforce their strong presence and the manpower in the region i think the timing is potentially more about keeping up a steady drumbeat of missile attacks to show. 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 they 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 timestream time has 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 fact to the movies have kept up this regular drumbeat of strikes rather than trying to concentrate all their available assets for one can big action early exit polls suggest azerbaijan's autocratic president president. has easily won a force consecutive term in office the election was boycotted by opposition parties who are angry the vote from was moved forward from october neve barker reports. he's laid azerbaijan since two thousand and three and now eleven trying to be president red velvet seven years. there were multiple candidates in the race but
only ever one front runner politics in azerbaijan is a family affair lives wife mary was made first vice president last year. succeeded his father heyday president in the early ninety's the former k.g.b. general clamp down hard on opponent while at the same time opening up the country's huge energy reserves to international companies. this one's crumbling post soviet republic is now one of the world's fastest growing economies balancing relations with azerbaijan's former soviet moscow russia and the west this country is one of the main partner for the repeal in union from the point a few energy security but at the same time this country is located between russia and iran these folks in between the smart foreign policy helps as a bridge on to be and to have good relations with only ber's i but the economic
boom hasn't benefited all many people struggle on low incomes have made growing inequality. and this is what happens to antigovernment protesters. leading opposition parties boycotted the election accusing him of vote rigging and nobody can speak out in the ways that challenges the government and not face consequences and that means free will he says are either in prison or outside of his or by john well they keep quiet to many azerbaijan is a post soviet post a child an international player the host of major cultural and sporting events but it is to this day the only former soviet republic to witness the rise of a ruling in a city as the nation gets richer one family the only arabs remain firmly in control . still to come in this half hour police in indonesia
