millions of people for political clients and says sends the scandal there's been a sharp drop in business. the basque separatist group has announced it is disbanding just days after apologizing to its victims more than eight hundred people were killed during its fifty year campaign for an independent state that eclair to cease fire in two thousand and eleven that a court some sense of fashion. in the end it came in the rather mundane form of a letter dated the sixteenth of april to various basque organizations a long awaited announcement that the group that waged a violent campaign for independence for five decades was disbanded for good and the what it called its historical cycle. it's fifty years since it's occurring that first victim a secret police chief here in the coastal city of. the announcement that it has this funding comes as no surprise to anyone here but many people do hope it marks
the beginning of a new era the name of that police chief was carlos diaz his daughter says people like her are still waiting for a real apology. is the way that no matter in principle it's good news that they're not killing more people of course it's great news that there are no more victims but there's absolutely nothing to thank for it's a formed in the late one nine hundred fifty s. in response to the crackdown on bus culture by spain's dictator francisco franco in one thousand nine hundred seventy three they killed his heir apparent prime minister luis cairo blanco public attitudes hardened and opinion even inside split when the group killed twenty one people in a barcelona supermarket in one thousand nine hundred seven and a series of arrests of better leaders in both spain and france weaken the group significantly. last month which had observed a ceasefire since twenty eleven did apologize to what it called innocent victims of its bombings and assassinations but that wasn't extended to the families of people
in the security services or politicians who were among the more than eight hundred killed by it or over the years for some people in spain's basque region the latest announcement is a missed opportunity and even the lesson here in terms of society i don't think we're going to notice much change and at a personal level i don't believe in is is because there are many missing did people there are many assess the nations that have not been clarified there are many victims that have not received compensation. for their part campaigners for the rights of its of prisoners currently in jail across spain and france. be able to service sentences near their families in the basque region so this is not closure but it has reenergized the debate on where the basque independence movement goes from here. al-jazeera. britain's upper house of parliament has voted to oppose any deal with the e.u. which would bring back controls on the irish border the house of lords heard that a so-called hard border would violate the peace agreement that helped and decades
of conflict in northern ireland so this puts more pressure on prime minister threesome a who's facing a revolt from within her own party which could threaten her fragile government m.p.'s in favor of bracks that oppose a customs partnership with the e.u. and the options being considered by many and want the u.k. to have no links to the new laws or regulations after it leaves the us and say we will be leaving the customs union we want to ensure that we can have an independent trade policy we also want to ensure that we actually we deliver we are committed to delivering on our commitment of no hard border between north. and ensuring we have as frictionless trade as possible with the european union. the hall has won the debate and lessons star. talks in the so-called war cabinet on breaks of the likely to go past wednesday of course but they begin in earnest today on britain's customs relations with the european union after breakfast and what position the government decides to take into negotiations may well determine the nature of britain's exit
from the european union why because well if it goes in with a position that would require some sort of border to be set up between northern ireland in the u.k. and the republic of ireland in the e.u. to monitor trade well that is something the e.u. would not accept and that likely would push britain towards a so-called hard breaks of leaving with no trade deal at that economists many economists say would be very damaging to the economy here the prime minister is pushing for a particular arrangement called a customs partnership in terms of which britain would mirror e.u. regulations at its borders charging tariffs for the e.u. on goods passing through to the e.u. and then giving refunds to importers delivering goods only to the u.k. potentially based on its own trade arrangements that it makes separate to the e.u. after breakfast that is something that would not require a border if might therefore be acceptable to the e.u. the problem is that it is not acceptable to a pretty influential bunch of progress of m.p.'s in her own party who say it will
deliver nothing but a break sit in name only that it is a customs union in order to all intents and purposes that demanded she drop it and have tacitly if not directly threatened her lead to leadership over it all the while time is against the government here they've got to reach a settled position before a big meeting of the e.u. in june at which it will be decided whether to advance negotiations or not towards a final deadline of october by which time they hope to reach a final deal for britain's exit from the european union or no deal at all. hundreds of women in england may have died prematurely from breast cancer following a computer error in the national screening programme around four hundred fifty thousand. and women aged between sixty eight and seventy one were not invited to their final routine breast examination the lives up to two hundred seventy women may have been shortened because of that mistake u.k.'s health secretary has apologized calling it a serious failure that francis has apologized to victims of chile's clerical sexual
abuse scandal and asked for forgiveness it comes after days of meetings at the vatican with three of the victims that of the roman catholic church admitted last month he made mistakes in handling the crisis after discrediting the victims he says he is was quote part of the problem the victims have urged him to end the epidemic of sex abuse and cover up in the catholic church. we were able to speak frankly and respect for you to the pope we talked about difficult issues such as sexual abuse abuse of power and especially the cover up of the family and vicious realities that we do not refer to as sins but as crimes and corruption that do not end. but are an epidemic an epidemic that has destroyed thousands of lives the united states says it remains gravely concerned about north korea's human
rights record despite warming diplomatic relations in recent weeks the comments from the state department come ahead of a planned meeting between donald trump and north korean leader kim jong il and u.s. concern about human rights in the north spiked last year after american student auto warm beer was released from north korean custody it was arrested in good health while on a tour of pyongyang but let go fourteen months later and a vegetative state and he died soon after the highest ranking chinese official to visit north korea in years has arrived in pyongyang for mr wang years on a two day visit to try to ensure beijing plays a role in the next round of nuclear diplomacy with its longtime ally adrian brown reports. it's eleven years since the chinese foreign minister last stepped foot in north korea a measure of the strain in relations between these allies and now of china's desire to repair them one year is in pyongyang five days after the historic into korean summit when kim jong un and president mungy in agreed to pursue denuclearization of
the peninsula and the peace treaty one will be hoping for a detailed briefing on the results of that meeting thanks unusually last friday chinese leaders found themselves on the sidelines of a major international event happening on their doorstep and they won't be part of the planned meeting between president donald trump and kim jong il either. analysts say china's president who met kim jong un in late march wants to ensure that the chinese aren't left out of future talks that could possibly include the united states and i want to make sure that in any war on these questions china will have this here seat and that negotiating table it is hard to believe that china won't play a role in any future discussions it is in theory at least the only ally that north
korea has and china was also a signatory to the one nine hundred fifty three armistice that ended hostilities on the korean peninsula but not the state of war that still exists between the two koreas adrian brown al jazeera in beijing. military spending is on the rise across the world according to a new report from sweden the russia is backing the trend with its expenditure falling for the first time in almost ten years the u.s. remains the world's top spender is expected to fork out even more the share are on a hot reports. two hundred and thirty dollars that's the amount of military spending last year for each person on the planet it adds up to almost two trillion dollars or two point two percent of the world's economy military spending in china rose the most last year based on the latest figures from the stockholm international peace research institute all sipri the twelve billion dollar boost leads a twenty nine year upward trend in asia china's two hundred twenty eight billion
