going to work as a politician and a statesman emanuel mccrone decided to be taking the opportunity of a sunny spring day in washington to walk to the lincoln memorial the french president arrived a few hours earlier with a warm greeting but a clear agenda we will have your board meeting to discuss a lot of bilateral issues and to discuss about her security about trade and a lot of issues very important for our countries and beyond our two countries at the white house he was welcomed for the first official state visit of the trump presidency donald trump gets on well with ammonia crawl but in the talks that have to follow the french president wants to convince him to stay inside the iran nuclear deal not to abandon it and to also think again about possible trade tariffs on european goods. the white house press secretary seemed to indicate there was little chance of change on iran front the president's been extremely clear that he
1:04 pm
thinks it's a bad deal that certainly has not changed and speaking in canada become acting u.s. secretary of state things the nuclear deal is at risk because of iran's actions the united states has significant concerns with iran with its blistering mick did ballistic missiles program it's destabilizing malign influence in the region in yemen in syria and elsewhere iran's foreign minister is carrying out his own tutor in the u.s. international inspectors see iran is in thought compliance but he warns the u.s. collapsing the deal could have consequences politically it would be difficult for donald trump not to abandon the iran nuclear deal given his previous statements the first chance for president mccrone to raise the issue was a very new and george washington at a private dinner for the two men and their wives he will hope when german chancellor angela merkel arise through or visit in the coming days donald trump might have something positive to see alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house
1:05 pm
when i talk to my stuff he's a political commentator and joins us via skype from tehran i mean these are very strong words coming from the iranian president a warns of severe consequences if trump withdraws from the deal what do you think he means by this. hello and thanks for having me well there and you know iranian officials had a different view when donald trump almost last year said he would drop out of the deal iranian officials there that they would continue with europeans but apparently europeans have this a point to iran with regard to iran's expectations from them and now it's about a month that iranian officials are issuing stern warnings iran iran is the aim to have developed a number of packages in response to any abrogation of the deal by the united states that includes. actions and
1:06 pm
a package in the nuclear and this tree and other package also that comes and missile industry and missile technology as well as iran's a regional clout and influence and activities but these three packages are over the state people and it's believed that iran would choose all of them the nuclear package itself i need to say it includes restart and resumption of all halted nuclear activities some even believe that iran would get out of the n.p.t. but of course we hear it every now and then but it doesn't seem to be very much likely now it's widely believed that if things go wrong iran might also adopt such a measure ok now donald trump says that the iran deal is far too lax on these criticized iran over its ballistic missile program and for backing the syrian regime in the war so do the iranians see all this as new conditions which cannot now be added to the deal. now iran has repeatedly stressed that the deal
1:07 pm
is not going to be changed iranians know the game pretty well they know that the united states has failed you know to harness iran's power now it's trying to contain each and every component of iran's power that includes its nuclear missile technology these two as well as its really regional presence and activities so they are they know the u.s. has and they are not going to agree to that because they know they go weak if they agreed to grant more concessions and then they would have to be forced to comply with the u.s. demands so they have done you know their part on their in a good gesture and in goodwill and now they expect the other side to remain you know committed and loyal to the deal but they are not going to agree to that that's the major difference between iran and europe on their conditions if the u.s. drops out and up against a deal iran has
1:08 pm
a stress that it would not grant any more concessions if it's requests of light ok let me just get up i thought let me get a final thought from you most often the french president emanuel macro is visiting the u.s. trying to convince trump to stick to the deal what do the iranians want to see out of micron's trip. this is a very important juncture you know iranians expect macedoine and the e.u. to advise trump to not just keep it alive and stay on the deal but also comply with it this is something that we have failed to see ever since it was the deal that j.c. was a struck under obama even obama did not comply with its undertakings under the nuclear deal so iranians have warned that they want to see the united states under that deal and in full compliance with its undertakings that's the least thing that they want to see this there and warning that was issued today i sent more to the
1:09 pm
europeans of course iranians are warning that they are not going to continue to deal with you or all on their present conditions that they are demanding regional and missile concessions from tehran ok let's talk face tough questions and we have to we have to leave yes are we have to leave it there i'm afraid thank you very much indeed for talking to al-jazeera thank you while another skeptic of the iran nuclear deal seems to be making his way to the u.s. state department donald trump's nominee for secretary of state the current cia director might pump a zero has cleared one hurdle at the u.s. senate panel they has now really backed his nomination with republican rand paul changing his vote after earlier saying he would oppose pompei oh well that gave him the eleven votes needed from the twenty one member panel his nomination now goes to a full senate vote. well my campaign has risen rapidly from the fringes of the republican party to become one of the president's most trusted advisers he came to
1:10 pm
congress as a tea party republican from kansas in twenty ten and served on two trump made in the head of the cia last year a former u.s. army officer pump a.o. shares trumps views on north korea and iran and has said he'd support regime change in both countries where he's been accused of promoting anti islam views one saying muslims are a threat to america. now it's a conflict that's already killed more than ten thousand people in the past three years and caused what the united nations says is the world's worst humanitarian crisis but now there are signs of an escalation in the war in yemen more than thirty people were killed in a saudi air strike on a wedding party in the western province of hush on sunday and another airstrike on tuesday killed nine people at a gas station elsewhere in the same province and the saudis are released footage of an airstrike from last week that killed a who the second in command out summer saudi arabia had placed a twenty million dollars bounty on his head when the who things in turn have
1:11 pm
intensified attacks on saudi territory firing an average of one ballistic missile a day over the last ten days on the latest attack on monday targeted on iran co facility mike hanna has more from the united nations. the wedding hall which was to have been the scene of joyous celebration was turned into a death trap this video which al-jazeera cannot independently verify shows the aftermath of the airstrikes believed to being carried out by the saudi led coalition local officials said the first missile detonated in the men's section of the wedding party moments later a second one hit the side on which the females were gathered this footage released by the rebels shows the horrific off the math. a young boy screaming and crying next to what appears to be the lifeless body of his father dozens of people were treated in the nearby hospital they have no mercy towards children they've been killed without any remorse says this man
1:12 pm
a spokesman for the saudi led coalition says it will carry out a full investigation the u.n. has said that off the estimated ten thousand menes that have so far lost their lives in the conflict some sixty percent have been killed in strikes. there's been no formal response from the security council as yet its members have just returned from a weekend retreat in sweden but the office of the secretary general has issued a statement on his behalf condemning the attack it reads in part the secretary general reminds all parties of the obligations under international humanitarian law concerning the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure during armed conflicts he calls for a prompt effective and transparent investigation and during the day details emerged off another saudi led air strike the political council here. was killed in an
1:13 pm
apparent missile attack last thursday he burned. with sorrow and sadness i mooned to our yemeni people that did martyr president saleh. he was killed on the nineteenth of april with six of his companions he was targeted in her data province on his way back from a meeting with local leaders by three airstrikes launched by the warplanes of the us saudi aggression sunday our summit is the most senior who feel leader to have been killed since the western backed saudi led coalition intervened in yemen just over three years ago mike hanna al-jazeera united nations or let's talk to her saying alba katie he's a pro who through journalist and joins us live now from the yemeni capital sana'a there seems to be a clear escalation in the violence in the war in yemen let's talk first if we can about the killing of the who three political leader sally out some out how much of a blow is this to the two things are now they likely to react much more
1:14 pm
aggressively going forward. it is not as some people say big blow to the whole thing because during a war is expected that some of the commander and political leaders to be killed so they have targeted mr before they have failed so it was something expected there but i think this will be a big blow to the. coalition because we've seen that within three days of the killing of. jose has appointed mr mad and he's considered can be considered as one of the hard like inside the hotel movement to be from this hardline more close to the military wing of. the this means that there will be more attacks in saudi that will be and this will effect any this going to effect any peace told going out in yemen or outside yemen because this is huge
1:15 pm
and i believe that. the medical hold you have said that there will be a big and huge response. and in terms of that response we've also seen an escalation in the technology on the number of missiles being fired by the east towards saudi arabia but this is a worrying escalation of the violence there recently. the who started the escalation is the saudi all with the yemeni army and the who they are doing is self defense they are not the one who started the war against the saudi was the opposite and there we've seen as you mentioned that now they are launching a daily ballastic missile inside saudi arabia and i continued that they have more missiles that they have not actually used till now and i think in the coming weeks we will see these missiles like put in will be put in into service and we have
1:16 pm
notice that the latest missile strike on saudi targeted. company we know that mohamed bin salamander bent on. a company as he say for his vision in the coming fifty years in saudi so i believe that the coming strikes will be mainly targeting oil field companies. because this is the backbone of the saudi led coalition but as always it's the civilians who are paying the price of the war in the last few days dozens have been killed in coalition airstrikes despite reminders from the u.n. all sides about their obligations to protect civilian life yet dozens hundreds of civilians continue to be killed. i mean of course when you have a war there's going to be a civilians but if you see who was the party who was mainly thought to get in a civilian in the saudi led coalition and who was responsible of all of this killing this idea that coalition they have propagated just in the last week.
1:17 pm
seventy to one thousand people being killed that how to get in schools the mosques if you. why didn't so that's how the out of the me of this. we have. the attack in yemen that killed civilians is not only saudi that that court is indicted this that i can only fifteen thousand killed by this that ike that out over two hundred thousand yemeni people ok shows that in the whole died because of this over the blockade and the he has nothing to do with this but ok is this all he was involved in his book a whole killing yemenis every day percent of the game thank you so much for talking to al-jazeera well plenty more still to come on the news hour including. who will stop them on armenia now the protesters of for the prime minister. on the part of the fabric we look at what's changed in bangladesh's garment industry. and

1:22 pm
century at the hands of the ottoman turks will be a sad day but as one man remarked to me today is feels different somehow the sun is shining and it's often raining at this time of year he said you know been really a good sign after yesterday's tumultuous events. attention turns to celebration after eleven days of street protests that brought down the u.s. prime minister was it was a humiliating and said his son. the man who has clung to power in the for the soviet republic for a decade on monday he resigns to preserve the peace he said just now is off to soldiers and seen the crowds. we know that the country has been suffering specifically under the rule of the. mandates of the president with absolute lack of institutional freedom so be it the judicial be it the the police be
1:23 pm
a be at the. the health or culture or even the religious of the fact that they really took the initiative on individual individual basis to come to the street shows that ultimately institutions are formed by human beings and human minds and intentions. so he stepped down after the release of the leader of the opposition his arrest the day before had only served to crowds was president since two thousand and eight his second term in office had ended but the point parliament formed off the constitutional changes he presided over swiftly appointed him prime minister with enhanced powers stripped from the presidency the peaceful protests had focused largely on high level corruption and persistent poverty in a volatile region they were closely watched by russia who had formed close ties
1:24 pm
with the kremlin said it would not intervene for the scribe events in year of an as a domestic matter and crowds evident delight. now about an hour from now where expecting again huge numbers of people here on republic square they won't be gathering to voice their opposition they will be gathering in unity for this genocide memorial day and they will be departing from here and walking up to the genocide memorial on a hill a beautiful spot above the city of yerevan to lay flowers. later today we expect opposition leaders to to talk to the media and we're hoping we understand that they may be wanting to set out their agenda and agenda obviously is likely to include their calls for elections as soon as possible.
1:25 pm
robin foster was there and you have i'm robin thank you. now a cambridge university academic connected to the facebook data misuse scandal is appearing before a british parliamentary committee alexander kogan is linked to the u.k. based cambridge analytic a firm that is being accused of improperly accessing the information of nearly nineteen million users through facebook john a whole joins us live now from london so general what more do we know about alexander tobin what's he been saying to the committee. well he's speaking to the committee at the moment are in this is an opportunity of course for them for everyone really to hear from the man who effectively is the sort of missing link the middleman in this whole scandal who connected to facebook and cat again reach out a little go through an app that he created that harvested the information the personal information of some eighty seven million facebook users and then passed it on to the british based political data consultancy cambridge analytic of the use in developing so-called psychographic models to influence and predict the voting
1:26 pm
behavior of voters principally in the us democrat as the us election and former c.e.o. of cambridge analytics claims other companies denied it that it was instrumental in getting donald trump elected alexander kogan is the academic a sort of brilliant psychologist and academic a senior researcher in the famous psychometric department of cambridge university created the zappers an app that takes down also information voluntarily for people in return for a small fee on facebook their gender their location their likes and dislikes and this sort of thing and because it was created before two thousand and fourteen it also has the unique ability in terms of facebook's terms of service to target their friends as well which is why this immense dataset was accumulated and he then had an arrangement with cambridge analytical and passed it on he mr cogan insists he did absolutely nothing wrong he said he was totally upfront with facebook throughout the process he had a long standing arrangement with them as a researcher he'd had data passed on to him from facebook before that they never
1:27 pm
once raised any objection to what he was doing and on the other side cambridge analytical had assured him that what they were doing was thoroughly legal so he claims that he felt it was all completely normal but of course as this storm has grown as the scrutiny has grown on facebook and cambridge analysts they have sought very much to point the finger at him he claims he's being targeted scapegoated they say he breached facebook's terms of service on the. one side can reach analytical says he wasn't upfront about how the data was collected as a say in the middle east alexander kogan will find out more about him today he insists he did nothing wrong and just briefly jonah i mean as you say he's been implicated in providing the means for the scandal so is what he did illegal i think that's an incredibly difficult question to answer this is a largely unregulated space of course the digital world that is one of the crucial issues under examination now there are very few rules governing what facebook does
1:28 pm
with data and of course facebook has existed from the beginning of obvious exhibit existence accumulating aggregating data using it for advertising models and so on and cambridge analytic what it was doing in gathering data and then targeting political ads that particular subsets of voters based on their likes and dislikes is the sort of thing that political parties have been doing since the beginning of democracy it's a question of where these two things intersect and whether that data was improperly used in other words not with the knowledge of the people giving it to subvert the political process that is the crux here but i think delineating lines of legality or illegality is extremely difficult to do john howard thank you. in a few moments we'll have the weather the richard but still ahead here on al-jazeera . a backtrack on pension changes isn't enough for protesters in nicaragua now they want action against an unpopular president. keen to learn the challenges confronting jordan as it tries to give syrian refugees an education. and sport
