a pack of lawyers that was the reaction from iran john occasions by israel's prime minister about iranian nuclear weapons binyamin netanyahu showed reporters in tel aviv what he called conclusive proof the terror on how to one point a weapons program where u.s. diplomats say they believe netanyahu and germany are investigating the israeli accusations particle again as more from washington d.c. . it wasn't you know suspicious start a technical glitch with the audio meant a brief delay describing a highly sophisticated intelligence operation this was an innocent looking compound it looks like a dilapidated warehouse. but from the inside israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu says his intelligence agents tracked the paperwork from an iranian nuclear weapons program to this building and that they were able to take this. proudly displaying paperwork and disks he says were from iran according to his own
visuals the program ended in two thousand and three but he alleged it continued in secret using these visuals and television performance to send the message the iran deal the nuclear do is based on lies it's based on iranian lies any rain in the separation one hundred thousand files right here prove that there log at the white house it was clear the u.s. president was impressed by what he saw i think of anything what's happening today and what's happened over the last little while and what we've learned. has really shown that i've been one hundred percent right that matters because by may twelfth the president will decide if the u.s. sanctions will continue to be waved under the iran nuclear deal negotiated between the u.s. iran and five other countries around foreign minister dismissed the new allegations tweeting breaking the boy you can't stop crying wolf is at it again undeterred by
cartoon fiasco at unga you can only fool some of the people so many times the president has said nobody knows what he's going to do perhaps trying to build suspense but there seems a lot less of that after what he saw on his t.v. pedicle hain al-jazeera washington herefore sets in a western islam with israeli reaction. well the domestic israeli reviews are in for what was very much an internationally focused televised performance by the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu last night very positive reviews of the how of all this the fact that the entire intelligence services were able to get all of this information out of iran a half ton of documents benjamin netanyahu said more than one hundred thousand files one hundred ninety three c.d.'s worth of information about iran's former nuclear program but it is that word former that is at issue for many of the commentators in the israeli media the haaretz newspaper terms it perhaps in the
most catchy way saying that this was a photograph taken several years ago of a smoking gun rather than a smoking gun itself the times of israel says that this was a stunning operation which overshadows the actual intelligence which was stolen that's because benjamin netanyahu himself admitted in his televised broadcast that this was a program which was paused in two thousand and three he says though the key thing is that iran has continually lied about it even during the signing of the j c p o a the iran nuclear deal in twenty fifteen and that negates the deal others though saying that that's precisely the reason for the deal the e.u. says that there was always the assumption that iran hadn't been forthcoming about the nuclear program and that's why the j c p o a was framed in the way it was the haaretz newspaper is also quoting from james mattis the u.s. defense secretary making a similar point that several weeks ago the language in the j.c.
suggested that iran was assumed to be lying all along so the question is who does this influence presumably not those who are against pulling out of a j c p o a does it give donald trump that extra impetus before may the twelfth the deadline for him to make a decision. well robert kelly is a former director of analysis with. the u.n. agency investigating iran's nuclear activities he says there's no smoking gun information obtained by israel netanyahu speech is the dates are all missing everything he presented it appears to be related to developing nuclear weapons was longer growing as well no there's nothing that he presented about the former weapons program that was news i think what you have to see is a lot of countries have a lot of secrets they like to keep him holding some of these feet to the farm and saying you know everything you did last fifty years is not going to happen we're looking to the future i think it there are cases been made very well now that the j c p a where you need to stand because the jury c.p.o.
is the thing it's keeping the information that netanyahu presented yesterday from actualized there's not going to be a nuclear weapons program there's a j.c.b. away so trump would be a fool to walk away from this war. break out as a rout when we come back afghanistan is mourning for dozens of victims of monday's attack us. internet freedom tens of thousands of people take to the streets and most of them on that status. hello there we're seeing quite a bit of cloud and rain over the northern parts of asia at the moment we can see one system that's moving away from japan but the next systems gathering itself together making its way of the eastern parts of china and we'll see more cloud work its way across the korean peninsula as well that's gradually working its way eastwards then so it's with us on wednesday shop showers across this whole region
including across a few shoe where i think we'll see some of the heaviest of the downpours that system will still be intensifying as it works its way eastwards might even give us a little bit of snow along its northern edge for the south of course far too warm for it here but still wet and windy tokyo twenty seven degrees so mild despite that wet windy weather towards the west a lot quieter weather wise here twenty seven degrees will be our maximum temperature there in beijing of a further towards the south and here's where all the showers originating over parts of china but this system is gradually sinking its way southward so it's stretching from the northern parts of it now all the way up towards the dirge young province to the north of that city looking a bit drier force in shanghai temperatures around twenty six degrees i mean for the towards the south plenty of showers here most of them working their way towards the west towards us in vietnam we could see the or shower around the coast.
he was the world's most wanted man the last meeting i had with him was off to. finland was very nervous about nature had not met a western reporter before in part one of an exclusive two part documentary. speaks to the met osama bin ladin he never showed hostility towards me as the west i knew bin ladin on all jersey. welcome back a quick recap of the top stories here this hour please one person has been killed
off a building in south dakota fire and collapse the abandoned twenty floors form a police headquarters was occupied by squatters the search is underway to find several missing people. and i mean u.s. capital yerevan thousands of gathered outside parliament which will soon vote to elect a new prime minister opposition leader nicol passion of the soul candidate for the post after a deadline passed on monday was no other candidate entering but. on iran's accusing israel's prime minister of a propaganda show by revealing documents he said proved the twenty fifty nuclear deal was based on lies eleven days before donald trump decides on continuing the deal or not binyamin netanyahu showed reporters what he said was an archive of stolen nuclear lab. for more on what about top stories that vote in armenia to elect a new leader robin foster walka as the latest from the armenian capital america. has been speaking inside the parliament there m.p.'s if there is enough of them to votes that would make his nomination go forward to prime minister. vytas that he
can get enough votes a majority and he needs at least six republicans they are the governing party to come on inside and support him he has the rest of the political factions in parliament the question now is whether the republicans are willing to do what the country demands of them we have seen tens of thousands of people again back on the streets in the city center of yet if more than i've seen all week but huge numbers today and they expect an outcome and they are grady to celebrate because they anticipate that nicole tyson yann will be this country's next prime minister and if that happens he will form a transitional government and he will hope to be able to make changes to the electoral system that would allow for a free and fair elections in armenia something this country has not enjoyed of late and that would give his platform an opportunity to lead this country because at the
moment the will of the people seems to be overwhelmingly in support of change here they've had enough of the former leadership of said sudsy and he resigned last week and then they decided this movement that that wasn't enough they wanted the republican party gone they did not want said she's candidate the acting prime minister to take over so this vote is going forward and now the question is whether the republican party or members of it are willing to make that step because if they don't there's going to be an awful lot of very disappointed very angry people on the streets of the capital there will be a chance for another vote next week but at the moment all eyes and all expectation is on a revote results today that would take our media forward to a new government and a new future not roman catholic cardinal is to stand trial in australia for sexual abuse decades ago cardinal george pell pleaded not guilty to dozens of witnesses
gave evidence in a months long committal hearing the former archbishop of melbourne in the one nine hundred ninety s. rose to become vatican treasurer and aide to pope francis thomas reports. cardinal pell arrived at a melbourne course hoping this would be his final appearance. it would be george pell was until recently the catholic church's treasurer arguably the third most important person of the vatican inside here a magistrate told him he will face a criminal trial accused of historic sexual offenses police formed a barrier to help clear his path out a large crowd of media and people who say they were abused by priests in the catholic church was writing. the magistrates had barely finished. before he answered very very not guilty they were only words during
the hearing they think granted bail but he's not allowed to leave australia a legal suppression order bans the reporting yet of exactly what will stand trial for it also prevents the reporting of how many accusations have now been dismissed and what they were as a priest in the state of victoria and later archbishop of melbourne and sydney cardinal pell became australia's most senior catholic during his committal hearing a magistrate tested the credibility of pelts accusers and the strength of his defense she said her job was to decide whether a jury could convict not whether it would she only dismissed charges where established facts made the accusations impossible or where an accuser's credibility was so poor their attitude to giving evidence so cavalier that a jury couldn't possibly trust what they said on that basis the magistrate decided there was sufficient evidence for about the charges she examined to go to trial victims of sexual abuse by other people in the catholic church say they are
delighted to die surely does restore your faith in the system you could say that the judge. went through very very far away the crimes against the cardinal spoke about the climate's. yes it's. a very historical absolutely historic on wednesday cardinal pell the place another court that will be a first hearing to determine where and when no longer just whether he'll stand trial after thomas al-jazeera meldon well kathy kettleman is the president of the blue not foundation which helps adult survivors of child abuse she joins us via skype from sydney and how significant is this case regarding cardinal pell i mean he's australia's most seen a catholic and is close to the pope this must be very embarrassing for the vatican look i think it is very significant and won't show is that no one is above the law obviously everyone. is is due to.
the low shows that everyone can be potentially able to go out and the vatican has been criticized for not pursuing cases of sexual abuse by priests much more aggressively i mean will this case add renewed impetus to the vatican piece simming priests who have abused look you would you would hope so in this country in australia we've had a five year old commission and that there were two one thousand mainstream institutions in which children and sexually so this is not just a problem of the catholic church although a large percentage of those. needs in the mission were from the catholic church and we know that you know certainly the church has been very reluctant. clergy and lay people who are alleged to be users to account and hopefully we will see this unchanged from the secrecy see this sort of thing that we've seen. and many of the
abuse allegations in this case go back decades so how does your organization help adult survivors of child abuse. look it really can be very very difficult for people to come forward and speak about you know the core of their trauma what happened to them years ago and people take on a very often to take on a very inappropriate cents a share and so frayed and feel very guilty and we've had a system and a society in which to blame victims and we've seen that very much in past generations it's very very hard for people to so the rule commissions change that in australia we've seen lots of survivors come forward been heard by people in a position of authority been believed and been validated and that's very very important and we need to see the blame where it belongs with the traders kathy you talk about the rule commission but what about the broader issue of child sex abuse in australia what more needs to be done to tackle the issue particularly in the
church look i mean this is a massive issue you know that. you know obviously it could significantly in the church but it's much more common in the family as well and of course in this very broad based social practice so you know within the church certainly we see need to see a much more open transparent system where there's zero tolerance to a child being at risk of power well being how. well need to see child safe practices we need to see mentoring reporting we need to you know. that. no one is complicit in covering up these are crimes against children and we know that children and never to. use that because kathy castleman thanks for talking to al-jazeera thank you know people in afghanistan are remembering those who died on monday in a twin bombing in kabul i source says it carried out the attack jennifer glass has more. the morning continues here in afghanistan there will be prayers in mosques
across the city for those twenty five people who died in twin eisel bombings on monday morning that injured of that also injured more than forty nine people this is the second i saw a bombing here in kabul in just over a week last sunday an attack on a voter registration center killed almost sixty people and wounded more than one hundred and ten and the attacks continue in eastern afghanistan or early tuesday morning a bombing targeting a provincial council member killed his bodyguard injured several other people and the fighting continues in eastern afghanistan as the bombings were happening here in kabul afghan security forces and want to american were killed in fighting in eastern afghanistan that is the ice will stronghold and there was a car bomb on monday in the south which is the taliban stronghold the taliban announcing the start of their spring offensive just a few days ago the fighting continues throughout afghanistan the afghan people

quotas on their steel and aluminum exports to the united states as the white house is requiring and in fact the e.u. saying that they will impose tariffs on u.s. goods like bub and jeans and holly davidson motorcycles if the u.s. does go ahead with tariffs on their goods wilbur ross the commerce secretary was pushing for some sort of delay he's convinced donald trump as for the other countries we knew actually about the u.s. and canada that was announced over the weekend the negotiations there lumped in with the negotiations over the north american free trade agreement lots of positive noises but some sort of agreements maybe maybe in the works from mid may and then the three other countries that were mentioned in this proclamation argentina australia and brazil they are out of the danger of tyrus as long as the agreement that's going to that has been put into into play in principle is followed through within the next thirty days south korea already had agreed to putting a quarter on its steel and aluminum exports so they are also no longer in danger of

had been used to organ. eyes antigovernment protests that swept the country in january it's a combination of something like what twitter about you might have here in the united kingdom so it's the two platforms combined for iranians often times so it's very important and if you look back to previous elections you can kind of correlate the victories of those that why in the most part of them and or their own heinie victory kind of see how they were so yes especially very eloquent and all that was supporting so telegram be seen as a threat by those opposed to reform in iran and protesters in russia would say the same thing the apps found a russian entrepreneur pavel bure of his fighting back he's promised to fund anyone developing proxy platforms online able to dodge the ban jonah how al-jazeera zimbabwe has become the second african country to legalize cannabis cultivation
