who is in djibouti the last stop for much of the aid found for him and mohamed so we'll get back to the aid aspect in a moment first though what is the latest that you know that you can add about what is happening at the airport. well richelle residents of the city all telling us that the seals from sport are the quiet. gunfire going on within the court although the so did live holy shit has already claimed to have taken who home school told the don't talk started with aerial bombardments of the few positions with before the troops all the sudden that whole dushan the talk from a closed three different of homes according to sources within the yemeni military these that there was heavy fighting in the compound all the port
alia with the hope the fight is using tongues to live and to try and stop the troops from advancing into the airport and taking over now there's been also a massive. people from the areas on the airport same bus yesterday when i talk helicopters probably preparing for these all out of. these morning targeted. the snipers who are pashtun groups of most schools on a residential buildings it is unarmed and so was we mentioned where you are now in she is one of the stops for aid as it tries to get to yemen and what is the status of getting aid into yemen. well very little ladies living going to yemen the aid agencies thought i here who have established a hobby for going to yemen from djibouti only using aircraft and they're
taking the aid which is mainly in the form of food and medicine to some of the cup which is so where you from some of the places where the most needy ovals twenty two million yemenis who need aid you leave ok the poll has been cool szell on the steel is to the delivery of aid to these millions of people who need aid eight million of them would stop to death if they don't get these vital aid and the aid agencies that are stationed here in djibouti getting desperate they have not sent any shipments to. almost a week they sent to shipments that did not get trained to get. permission from the cold lucian and had to be returned back to duty now some smaller aid agencies are using. fishing boats out of dispossession and barges to deliver but
repeatable ones like the world food program and unicef are saying they cannot do that because they don't want their way bills to end up in the hundreds of smugglers something that could spoil the image so there is a lot of food coming in there quickly about an alter of storage and they say something has to give way the coalition has to allow them to dock ships into the port again the world's worst humanitarian crisis at the moment thank you mohammed. house and you are as a professor of international relations and security forces university he joins us now from leone and france on skype we appreciate your time very much so what do you know about the condition of the airport even aside from the fighting just how functional is this airport. probably. not gone beyond. heavy bombardment by
a good quality and forces but also. say that you are not functional for the stupid reason that. city and they. are not forgotten though they are. an important air force so consequently devalue all the airports more symbolic just try to. find so you got a sense that if thought ok for going to the goss forces for that would be fine it could be. trying to say he says. consequently some kind of a security meant because he's so how much of a turning point is this potential loss of this airport and what does that mean what comes next. for this forty six year be important psychologically. if you guys are really important so.
if that's what they call. you can vote for the. recall. consequently more pressure on. the card in your. reports that more or did. you have any. they get most. a. trophy potentially catastrophic. or timid. would be very. different militarily speaking does. the rebels have any type of means at all to to to fight back or are they simply overwhelmed by
the resources of the coalition. they are all about the are talking about equality and all the numb got all arab countries. who thought all. dream big was from down. on the other. day and said. it really meant the very end trace of their unity ministry kept from the farm it. consequently the day best are the one on the face of a deity to match the power of all or did. it all. if this situation continues. those more very very they might be forced to become a fine force. fit to conduct a different type called war it would be time to call it so we did it also
when you say a different type of warfare so yes say that say that the spillover from the airport that type of warfare looks like for the rest of the city. or you could be. a. big fires defy the law you ought to consequently you'd be more someone to do cause for the coalition forces the groups there to control or supporting and i think being involved in the shooting of the airport they are. what it would it professor haasan thank you so much for your insight we appreciate it. very very large. more than fifteen hundred migrants have tried to cross from africa to spain over the weekend it is the largest single influx of migrants to the area and for years it comes as more than six hundred migrants arrived in the
spanish city of a lengthy on sunday after their ship was turned away from italy and malta karl pinhole reports from the maria on in the southeast coast of spain in the last four days spain's marine rescue services plucked more than fifteen hundred migrants and refugees from the seas of the western mediterranean and brought them ashore to ports like here in el maria and points further south with this latest influx that effectively means that the number of new might go into rivals has more than doubled compared to the same time last year in the last four days more than a hundred fishing vessels and row boats and even child rubber dinghies have been detected as they cross from northern morocco from here and now maria that's a distance of about one hundred miles or one hundred sixty kilometers because of these new arrivals the national police and immigration services say they are overwhelmed they say that there is simply no space to house and give these migrants
the services and help that they may need and so in practice what is happening is that once the migrants and refugees have been processed the gates of the port are being thrown open and they're free to continue their journey into spain or deeper into europe german chancellor angela merkel is facing a growing immigration crisis of her own she's been given a two week ultimatum by one of our coalition partners to tighten asylum rules or lose support that can bring down merkel's government and force a new elections and there are more refugees in the world today than ever before the latest u.n. refugee agency report finds more than sixty eight and a half million people are displaced worldwide around hondros a closer look at the numbers. every two seconds a person is forced from their home over a day that's forty four and a half thousand people over a year more than sixty million this is the un figure for newly displaced people in
two thousand and seventeen the un's refugee agency says it's part of a worrying upward trend a number that's risen every year for the last five years and is fueled by war violence and persecution crises like those in the democratic republic of congo war in south sudan the hundreds of thousands of muslim or head injury flooding into bangladesh from neighboring me and most of them a children fifty three percent of the world's displaced and often unaccompanied or separated from their families one in every one hundred ten people is a refugee internally displaced or seeking asylum that adds up to more than sixty eight and a half million people to put that in perspective if the world's refugees were single nation that roughly equal the population of the united kingdom and in the time i've been talking at least thirty four people more than half of them children
have been forced from their homes. day as the high commissioner for refugees at the united nations there is this sense of urgency but the response is continue to be too fragmented then to isolate this is a global phenomenon that requires international so be very thin cooperation on a global scale and this is what these raise the rising figures and the world's response to these political positions are not right. refugees are fleeing violence war persecution we have an obligation to help them and they're not even effective you can see easy you just reported on a few close avenues on the one side and on another we need to look at the root causes we need to address the reasons why these people leave violence were born we need to help the countries where they are in majority let's not forget that the
sixty eight million refugees and displaced eighty five percent are not the rich countries that are in poor middle income developing countries and then we need to maintain asylum systems that are effective that receive those in need of protection of refuge and give other options other solutions for those that move for different reasons. the secretary general antonio the terrace is warning that gaza is on the brink of war has support has been sent to the security council ahead of a meeting on tuesday on the israeli palestinian peace process a diplomatic editor james faces more. this is a report that israel in the trumpet ministration won't want to read it's from the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorist to the security council most of the points he makes in here have been made by the un before but the fact that they're all here in the same place at this time is significant he is critical on garza of the
violence and the deaths of palestinians he says that gaza is on the brink of full scale war and already has faced economic collapse on the west bank he says that israel's settlement building is a flagrant violation of international law and he's critical even though the trumpet ministration is undergoing consultations on a middle east peace plan led by the president's son in law jared kirshner he's critical of the international community saying he's greatly concerned with the state of our collective efforts to advance peace and urges international and regional partners to reengage the report ends the current trajectory is not sustainable. a former israeli minister has been charged with spying for a rod. who had been living abroad was arrested during a visit to equitorial guinea he was extradited to israel last month on suspicion of

backed by saudi iraqi military coalition the say they have now taken control of the airport and today to they were trying to retake a front with the rebels because it would be a key way of resupplying military forces. more than fifteen hundred migrants tried to cross from africa to spain over the weekend it is the largest single influx of migrants to the area since two thousand and fourteen on sunday more than six hundred migrants arrived in the spanish city of a lengthy after their ship was turned away from italy and malta. financial markets in shanghai and hong kong have fallen after the u.s. president on a threatened to impose new tariffs against china obsessive beijing goes ahead with new taxes against u.s. goods washington will introduce a ten percent tariff on chinese imports worth two hundred billion dollars beijing says it will respond with strong counter measures for more adrian brown joins us live now from beijing so this adrian this seems to escalate and escalate is this
the first really drastic market reaction to this. yeah it's almost as if sort of tariff for tea had been setting in until now but we are starting to see aren't we the markets don't like what is coming out of washington and beijing the index here in shanghai dropping almost four percent at the close on choose day the falls in the rest of asia weren't quite as sharp but i think there's a a growing realisation michel that washington and beijing are trapped in a downward tit for tat spiral and you know there seems to be no way out at the moment both washington and beijing have backed themselves into corners and in a sense washington is asking beijing to in a sense. change the whole way it does business with the united states and that includes in many ways getting president xi jinping to roll back on one of his key policies this is known as made in china twenty twenty five this is his way of
trying to push china up the value chain by focusing on the high tech industry that the but the united states says that china is doing that by heavily subsidizing it by pouring billions and billions of dollars of government money into the high tech sector and that's creating according to washington an unfair playing field and also there is of course you know that the trade deficit this simmering issue between washington and beijing at the moment china exports you know far more to the united states than the other way around last year the united states took some five hundred billion dollars worth of chinese imports china took about one hundred thirty billion of u.s. imports that means that at the moment this could potentially be quite serious for china because the united states has more potential targets for terrorists than china does but china could all start could also penalize and punish washington in
other ways because there are so many big chinese companies here some of the big u.s. companies here in china and they are feeling very nervous right now and this is something that is not even in washington in general they're trying to ministrations specifically triggered this really without a lot of support from his own party there are many people in his own party that do not think that a trade war is wisely to contain and continues to spiral in spiral is there any type of compromise president trump seems to have his own way of negotiating for lack of a better term is there a way out of all of this. well you know take top goes the clock i mean the first of these tariffs is a jew to kick in on july the six that doesn't give a very much time that's what sixteen seventeen more days and at the moment there are no talks taking place between washington and beijing that we know of the
negotiating process has stalled remember just a month ago the u.s. trade delegation that came here said that the the trade war was on hold you know a compromise had been reached will clearly that hasn't been china now says that the concessions that it offered the united states saying that would actually buy a lot more from washington in the future that is all finished it says that that that that that whole notion has been has been jettisoned so we're at a very very difficult stage and i think you know realize ation actually if you speak to economists and analysts here in china that actually we are now on the brink of a trade war this is not notional this is real and of course you know this is going to impact not just the economies of the united states and china but also those of of south korea japan and hong kong all those countries who are sort of part of the the global supply chain all right major and brown live for us in beijing adrian thank you and it isn't rescue workers happen battling heavy rains and high waves in

common practice in indonesia for these kinds of boats to not have any passengers manifest nor any official ticket sales it also seems there were no life available rescue workers are now searching the link to look for more survivors. the trouble is trace of us not backing backing down from its controversial policy of splitting up families to try to cross the us mexico border without documentation the practices drawn criticism from across the political spectrum that president trump says he will not allow america to become a migrant camp as he said i did a castro support begins with an audio recording of children crying because they've been separated from their parents. for. the children are heard crying for their mom and pop over and over and over again this audio recording released by a civil rights lawyer reportedly comes from the inside of a u.s.

growing criticism from democrats and civil rights leaders trump remained defiant asian in a tweet the president referenced the refugee crisis overseas both lee claiming crime in germany is way up big mistake all over europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently change their culture in fact the number of crimes in germany last year fell to the lowest in twenty five years but administration officials further defended the hardline border measure with homeland security secretary cares to nielson putting the blame back on the immigrant parents parents who entered illegally are by definition criminals illegal entry is a crime as determined by congress by entering their country illegally often in dangerous circumstances egal immigrants have put their children at risk republicans insisted democrats must and join them to fund
