up across the great lakes is still inside just to the northwest of toronto on this particular satellite picture is brought out with a mass of warm air and now within that warm air not much has happened recently occasional thunderstorms possible the temps of all of this the reason because chicago thirty trying to five this is all warm or even hot but it's about to change as it will barrels off through the eastern side of the u.s. and eastern carol the temps are coming in behind of the air coming behind is cooler down to twenty three in chicago but that green there suggests and big downpours running through new england down through the appalachians as well and the circulation also developed over the counter the northern rockies and i think a few showers are likely from that and then the sun comes out of afterwards and then this looks potentially quite dangerous running through the the plain states steering saturday to the south
4:03 am
a lot of the obvious develop the showers and this is quite rapidly in the last day or so is running out through costa rica where it has been pretty wet. it's a centuries old battle and the battle is being passed to a new generation. witness follows a young native american as he takes the struggle into the twenty first century america everybody's been although we give you sacrifice of that. is going to be sound as can be remembered all all go on a knife edge on al jazeera. new possibilities fearless journalists or medical facility if they got that either already declared a state of emergency several weeks ago gripping documentary it's good to discover a wealth of award winning programming from around the globe. debates and discussion
4:04 am
on one side of the split screen dignitaries mingling on the other conduct see the world from a different perspective only on al-jazeera. welcome back you're watching i was there as news archives the whole robert these are our top news stories the trumpet ministration is imposing tariffs on steel an element of imports from the european union canada and mexico u.s. trade partners are threatening to retaliate with tariffs of their own and stoking fears of a global trade war the u.s. secretary of state says he's made great progress in his talks with kim jong kim
4:05 am
yong one of the north korean leaders closest aides this comes as the high level south korean delegation heads to the demilitarized zone to meet with their north korean counterparts and italy is that to get its first populist government and to the political deadlock the anti establishment five star movement and the far right party of succeeded in forming a coalition with just have become take as prime minister. let's get more on our top story washington's decision to impose sweeping steel an alum in the entire of sun some of its closest allies stacey is the managing partner of policy global development firm joins me now from washington d.c. good to have you with us on al-jazeera trade tariffs counter tariffs are we now heading towards a global trade war that getting gold economies. and damage the very delicate economy that we're seeing at the moment across the world.
4:06 am
in fact is your remarks there indicate that this is highly likely this will starts with a first round we're already hearing direct responses from the e.u. from japan from canada about what they're going to do reciprocal tariffs coming at the american economy and that means that if we respond again in kind this could go several rounds and lead ultimately to a very sizable trade war that will be detrimental to all of us well as we mentioned it all reported earlier in the program the e.u. is concerned china is furious with its own deteriorating bilateral trade issues with the usa that happened earlier this week is it too soon to talk about how they're going to lower this tension gradient or even talk about how bad it really could get well what we are hoping is that the administration will think twice here this is what our allies are hoping this is
4:07 am
what the leaders in japan in canada and all across europe are hoping it seems that this cabinet and this president in particular have things kind of reverse in their minds what they don't understand is that protectionism and mercantile isn't is a very bad thing for all parties involved average american people are effectively going to receive higher taxes direct higher taxes through these tariffs that's what a tariff is it's a tax a tax on the goods and services traded in the international trading system and when those taxes go up those tariffs go up the cycles through the system and will cause average american people the core supporters of this president to suffer so their lot their living standards will be detrimental effect so you would agree then with what the i.m.f. has been saying in that they said that these tariffs as you say would it would hit the world's poor and they would suffer the most. in fact they would
4:08 am
because average products like blue jeans like soda pop like apples and nuts and all kinds of things like this all the way up to cars and bigger things like buses or train cars all of these things anything with steel or aluminum in it plus all the things that are being targeted directly at americans and think about how savvy our allies are they are looking at this first they're shocked that this is happening because the u.s. is supposedly such a longstanding close ally of theirs so they really are quite shocked well if we look at them you know i went to graduate school with the foreign minister of canada and when she says what she's going to do. this really means well you bring in perfectly my next question because i want to bring in what the canadians have got a reciprocal list of trade embargo they've got strawberry jam manicuring pedicure preparations toilet paper inflatable boats play cards i mean who drew i
4:09 am
mean this is just part of the list too despite the the major list that's quite public or in the public domain who makes up these lists who looks at this and says hey we're going to hit hard or we're going to hit the americans with strawberry jam playing cards. well think about how regretful mexican canadian and european officials who are doing this are but they are people in their trade ministries in their ministries of finance and in effectively all these officials working for the top officials this is been their task in recent weeks do you think about where does this hit america the hardest and think about even this they're going to target some swing districts in the coming congressional elections here this could actually tip the balance in a certain way compared to none of this happening at all so this is going to affect us politically this is really going to affect us economically and not just us this is going to affect average people in these countries as well well it's
4:10 am
a fascinating story that we'll continue to keep an eye on and just a few thanks very much for your insight as well thank you now the red cross is sending teams of surgeons and medical supplies to garza to treat casualties from recent clashes along the border with israel one hundred fifteen palestinians have been killed and more than thirteen thousand wounded since the protests began on march thirtieth but across teams will prioritize gunshot wound victims it's middle east director says garza's health system is on the verge of collapse. imagine from one thousand three hundred fifty people with complex cases will need three to five operations each so per patient a total of more than four thousand surgeries half of which would be carried out by the i.c.r.c. youth. such a case load would overwhelm any health system in the world including in geneva. the
4:11 am
force that went to a hospital in gaza to find out more about the situation on the ground warning that some of his report was filmed inside an operating theater. the red cross team here the surgical team is operating on a young man who was shot several weeks ago in the leg just above the ankle and what this is is a follow up operation designed to remove fragments of bone which is still in the wound and could present a threat of further infection now this is this is very much the kind of thing which is at the heart of this new i.c.r.c. appeal for more funding they want to more than double the number of staff that are here in gaza for the next six months now this is despite the fact that the height of the protests for now at least appear to be over but the long term nature of these injuries is what they're concerned about one person the three hundred win out in badly to three to five a complicated because by the end festive that planning today with five point three
4:12 am
million don't know. how to respond to the accurate me at the health reform in gaza to increase the capacity of the fed to can and if that is of surgical unit and they begin hospital with them and also people being fed jails and there are thieves working eleven team members were not there then you know that in becoming clear that month this is just one among three thousand six hundred people who have been injured by israeli sniper fire in the last few weeks during the protests which started on march the thirtieth every more than thirteen thousand injuries in total and so this is why the i.c.r.c. says it's important to maintain and indeed increase its presence here in gaza to look after those people going forward there also of course concerned that there could be further injuries in protests which could take place in the coming days and weeks nine people including two children have been injured in croatia after police
4:13 am
opened fire on a van the carrying refugees and migrants around twenty nine people mostly from afghanistan and iraq were traveling in the van that were. they tried to crash through a roadblock police had set up the barrier after the van crossed the border illegally from bosnia the two children are in a serious but stable condition. and in a letter addressed to catholics in chile pope francis vowed to never again ignore the culture of clergy sexual abuse in the country but this comes as francis and else to send his top two investigators back to chile to gather more information about the crisis the pope also praised victims of sexual abuse in chile for bringing the truth to light despite attempts by church officials to discredit them . from us. the pope calls on everyone that is why it is a letter to all the people of god to overcome the culture of abuse and concealment now the pope not only said that there might have been some moments some things but
4:14 am
that the catholic church has created a culture of abusing concealment certainly we did not act with speed to investigate to where it's insane and those whom it concerns. now there have a nationwide protests in argentina calling for the decriminalize ation of abortion . they follow months of nationally broadcast hearings on whether to allow women to terminate a pregnancy within the first fourteen weeks a congressional committee is due to vote on the bill which would then still have to pass both houses of parliament trees about as i was. it's the last day of the abortion hearings in argentina and those who want to legalize it demonstrated in congress wearing as always the color green that's become a symbol of the national campaign for free legal and safe abortions a minute a single minute and we have been fighting for many years for something like this to
4:15 am
happen to separate the state from the church and to the side based on what's better for the country in the past decade we have seen a few reasons for aggressive reforms in argentina like gay marriage and sexual education policies but until now abortion has been off the table mainly because of the pressure by the catholic church in the past two months we have seen over seven hundred people coming here to congress to express their views for and against abortion the debate has polarized the country abortion in argentina is legal only in case of rape or if it woman's life is had risk but it is estimated that four hundred thousand planned the stein abortions are performed every year many women have died most of them are poor the outcome of any vote is by no means certain sure. i have to defend the right to life that is in our constitution and i cannot go against the right to life since conception but if you ask me if you want
4:16 am
a woman to go to prison because of an abortion i say no i think we can protect them in a different way if. this public debate has promoted the possibility of a problem a consequence that has. helps the health ministry and also szell sectors to begin talking about sexual education educate about contraception and prevent abortions precedent. is against a change in the law but he allowed the debate defying the pressure from the catholic church. was you know more some bishops have been very aggressive with lawmakers where they have the right those who are planning to vote in favor they generate fear they remain authoritarian but it's because they know they will lose. over the past fifteen years the campaign to legalize abortion has presented six bills on six different locations but no one made it to congress many hope it will be different this time. and finally a robotic bird of prey has been developed to help stop real birds from hitting
4:17 am
airplanes the row bird was developed by a dutch company clear flight solutions are they say the robotic peregrine falcon can help away from traffic and discourage them from nesting their runways. well still ahead here. the williams continues french open final closing in on a full time. with those details installed so don't go away.
4:18 am
4:19 am
thank you very much from madrid manages the nadine the don has quit the european champions after winning on precedented third straight champions league title the frenchman called a surprise news conference earlier on ending a three year career with the spanish the dan says it felt like the right time to make a change. look at. this club needs to keep winning and for that it needs a change after three years it needs a different voice a different method and that's why i made this decision because i really love this club and also the president who gave me the chance to come as a player to real madrid the scrape club and for that i'll be for ever grateful i mean mickelson running but i would have liked to have convinced him but i know his character and the only thing that i can do is to offer my love support and recognition and remember although he knows it at this club will always be his family the dam played for around madrid between two thousand and one and two
4:20 am
thousand and six before replacing rafa benitez's manager in two thousand and sixteen he won one hundred four of the one hundred forty nine games in charge of madrid twenty nine were drawn and that would just sixteen defeat he won nine trophies than all including the champions league titles his departure make them just the second coach off to get behind kids in two thousand and thirteen to leave a club straight after winning it that and also help to fail when one league title to spanish supercuts and two fifa club while cups are sports correspondent lee welling talks about the reaction to the dons departure. within this short response to this absolutely has to be a surprise because he's a young manager relatively forty five years old and has just won the biggest competition in european football actually world cup football three times in succession what a success he's my that job so to suddenly broke away from not will certainly have
4:21 am
people questioning it wondering why he's doing it but the more you hear from the down about this the more it might sense he's actually feeling that he's taken the club as far as they can go and that he can't go into further success with this side which makes sense when you think about it brownwood trade of course already deserved their triumph in the champions league but there's no guarantee that they're going to build on that for next season they do need to make changes and now the club you say they have to do that with a new manager actually i think there's a bigger picture here if you look at the french national team the french football association are understandably huge fans of that everything he did for them as a player and now what he's achieving as a manager and they would like him managing the national take didier to sean has been in the job for six years now which is a long time for a national manager he takes them to the world cup in russia i don't think the shop will carry on beyond that world cup and it will be a really good time to get it done in getting used to the job before the next major
4:22 am
tournament for france but just rewind a little bit when's it done. signed up for a while would do it as manager in twenty six that you haven't had a couple of years with that. there was a big question mark by him a lot of critics a lot of city what a success he made of that job. perry has been given a huge boost ahead of its fast world cup apparent in thirty six years that kept him paolo get out o. had been cleared to play in the tournament after a swiss court agreed to temporarily lift his doping ban and get out i was given a fourteen month suspension after testing positive for cocaine three time champion three no williams has booked her place in the third round at the french open serena b. american ashley barty who took the first that three three and a four back to take the second think three and take the third hole. world number one thrown into the third round of romanian with a straight sets victory over american and taylor townsend. i tried to stay focused
4:23 am
i got beast a little bit sometimes but. it's normal when you play with a player he saw in the end talented so i just try to not rushing the balls not rushing to finish the point but you know in the end measures if you win or not so i win i won and i was really happy that i could finish also the first said and also the second serve in that way i feel that i was much stronger in the second set after three four games started to feel that i am there so i can feel everything now former world number one maria sharapova also advances to the third round beating donna vec in straight sets. the twenty sixteen when i got. home a play of the owner federer in straight sets tell no face former u.s. open when i thanked those that in the. ten time french open champion and world number one rough and adele has surged into the theory that round
4:24 am
with the resulting straight sets win over argentina's guido paya has money and nicknamed the king of quite taking care of business six two six one one. in general i have to be happy noisy. of course a great result is to see it once is when it's not possible without playing well so . just before that time happy about the concentration that i was able to hold all the time and the right focus and on the much look at doing the things better but also through to the next round his third seed marin challenged the crowd lead potency about her couch by two sets before dropping the but he had to battle hard in the fourth before eventually winning six two six two six seven and seven five. former u.s. open champion juan martin del potro swept past local boys joining him beneteau the argentine defeating the frenchman fix four six three and fix things. it will be the fourth year in a row that the cleveland cavaliers and golden state warriors contest the n.b.a.
4:25 am
finals despite the era familiarity the build up has been i think fighting as ever and all starts with game one wrong thursday in california where the warriors have won seventeen of the last eighteen three the game but le bron james and of cavs will be hoping to change that even if some fans have complained about it being the fame to change the ethic and is it good for the n.b.a. to have the same two teams in the finals four years in a row. and in your thoughts. or. well there's been some blowback this talk on social media that people are sick of the same and i mean do you feel like it would be better if there's more parity in the league. teams that had the opportunity to beat the cavs over the last four years and teams that opportunity to be the wars of the last four years and if you want to see some miles in a poll seasoning and you got to beat him the washington capitals of even doubt the
