4:02 pm
attack the attack actually does bear all the hallmarks of a nice let's hack a suicide bombing multiple gunman but that has been confirmed by the kurdish security sources but kurdish politicians are definitely pointing the finger toward ice will not be as been spared much of the violence that we've seen in the rest of the country in fact the last attack there by ourselves in two thousand and fifteen when a car bomb went outside the u.s. embassy the u.s. consulate in karachi and now the attack began around seven am local time before the workday began gunman entered there was a skeleton staff there two policemen were wounded they made their way up to the third floor where they started shooting out from the window. very quickly cordoned off the area and then prepared their assault they went in and cleared the building room by room by room and that's when the suicide bomber blew himself up using his suicide bomb belt then one sniper took out the one of the attackers and then
4:03 pm
injured another who then later succumbed to his injuries in the hospital now as i say politicians are blaming eisel for this attack it certainly bears all the hallmarks of ice and we don't have a confirmation on that yet. thanks for updating us on the situation. in iraq the u.s. and iranian presidents have been trading threats the rhetoric escalated on sunday when iran's leader hassan rouhani warned the u.s. against playing with what he called the lion's tail an angry response trump warned against threatening the u.s. shelob us reports. with television as their platform a ratcheting up of thrifts between iran's president hassan rouhani and the trumpet ministration on sunday secretary of state mike pompei or spend a full twenty six minutes criticizing rouhani and his leadership the ayatollah are in on the act too judging by their vast well they say more concerned with riches
4:04 pm
than religion these hypocritical holy men advised all kinds of crickets games to become some of the wealthiest men on earth while their people suffer as the u.s. administration is attacking iran from multiple angles in may president trump withdrew from the twenty fifteen nuclear chord in august he will reimpose sanctions aimed at crippling iran's economy pompei are warned tehran its exports will be squeezed in the coming months and is pressuring allies to stop importing iranian oil by november its biggest source of income and now the u.s. administration is seizing on process in iran to begin a media campaign president rouhani referred to the strategy and threaten trump against turning his people against him but don't machine was you not going to change don't play with the lion's tail you will regret it forever you cannot carry out these measures it is out of your capability you cannot force during ins to act
4:05 pm
against their own country you have clearly shown you are against the iranian people . those comments got this response from president trump who tweeted in capital aces never ever thracian the united states again or you will suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before we are no longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence and death be cautious . to tweet as a flashback to trump and north korean leader kim jong un kim was also at the wrong end of a new caps tirade last year before the two leaders came together at a summit in singapore in june. the difference with iran is protests the soaring cost of living has pushed iranians to the streets numbers not seen since twenty twelve but analysts say a media campaign to win them over will be received as u.s. propaganda i think it's quite clear that as much as they are frustrated and deeply frustrated with the government of iran they're not jumping onto trump side anytime
4:06 pm
soon from california to tehran the high stakes verbal sparring will be watched by its target audience the iranian people shall at dallas al-jazeera. a senior commander in iran's revolutionary guard says trump's tweet amounts to psychological warfare he says iran will never abandon its revolutionary beliefs despite pressure from the u.s. bank has the latest from there on. we've seen in the days since donald trump pulled the united states out of the twenty fifty nuclear deal with more sanctions looming large first in august then again in november iranian leaders are becoming more and more aggressive in their tone and we're hearing more consistent public speeches in which they criticize the u.s. unilateral decision to pull out of the nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions what is also at the center of this escalation in the war of words is a statement made by the president in
4:07 pm
a recent visit to switzerland iranian president hassan rouhani on a diplomatic trip. made a vague threat against the strait of hormuz saying that it would be unrealistic to expect that if iran can't sell its own oil that everybody else still can so we're seeing iranian leaders backed into a corner at every turn trying to secure their own economy against oncoming u.s. sanctions and playing every card they have it used to be that iranian leaders would threaten to restart nuclear enrichment at higher levels and now we're seeing them also play their other card which is to threaten or to disrupt international shipping lanes. the only her save me is a member of iran's parliament today told al-jazeera the recent threats are more evidence that trump has risen against the global order then more. in arrow pinion trump is angry because of his failures americans have been trying for years now to convince other countries to confront iran and stead of cooperating with iran
4:08 pm
but they haven't succeeded even their commercial partners in europe and china have clearly announced they won't go with these sanctions naturally russia won't cooperate nor will other countries in our opinion america's angry because it has isolated itself and it feels that it remains alone against iran america has many expectations of countries in the middle east region even they aren't complying so this anger is not because of his might it's because of his failures. is a professor of political science at the wrong university he says the u.s. his policies on iran aren't hurting the government. i don't i don't think iran wants the war in to be frank i don't think the united states wants a all out war either i mean the united states can also not afford a major war with iran nevertheless what is important here is the u.s. administration is trying to say we are supporting ordinary iranians whereas in
4:09 pm
reality the sanctions actually hurt ordinary ukrainians the most so you cannot on the one hand say that we're against the iranian government while sanctioning the people who are in essential he also we have to consider the fact that rowhani was elected during an election with over seventy percent participation rate and he got almost sixty percent of the vote so whether we like him or not he is the representative of the reigning people and we cannot essentially put on this face that we're supporting the reigning people but we're against the iranian government . china's president is demanding an investigation in a scandal over substandard vaccines hundreds of thousands of children may have been given poor quality rabies vaccine health regulators found the drugmaker violated safety standards it's the second scandal to hit the company in the past week adrian brown has more from beijing. it is a worrying time for parents across china outside beijing's top children's hospital

4:35 pm
racial discrimination as define it by the convention consequently the court finds that at least some of the right asserted by qatar and that article five of our plausible this is the case for example with respect to the leg did racial discrimination in the enjoyment of privacy such as divide to marry and to choice of spouse their lie to do creation as well as freedom of movement access to justice the cold now to the issue of the link between the right disclaimer and the provisional measure this request it. the court has already found that at least some of the divide

4:38 pm
the method the court must therefore consider whether such a risk exists at this is the of the proceeding. the court does not call it up on for the purposes of its decision on the request for the indication of provisional measure to establish the existence of breaches of stare but to determine whether the circumstances require the indication of provisional measures for the protection of these under this instrument it cannot at this is day make a definitive finding this or fact and the right of each party to submit an argument is in respect of the marriage these remain is an effect by the court this decision on the request for the indication of provisional measure the

4:48 pm
the court where fairness that it is all of that is on provisional measure is that article forty one of these tell you how binding effect and does create international legal obligation is for any party to whom the provisional measures are addressed the core. they are famous that the decision given in the present proceeding in no way brig judges the question of the jurisdiction of the corps to deal with the merits of the case or any question this relay team to the admissibility of the application or to the marriott is themself is it live is am affected the right is of the government is of cup our and the united arab immunity is to submit our agreement in

4:52 pm
handed down by the president of the international court of justice judge up to medusa saying that the court has indeed found a provisional finding in the dispute between carter alleging that the u.s. is in violation of the application of the international convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination saying that as a provisional finding the court found that the u.a.e. had to comply with the acronym goes of obligation that the u.s. must ensure families which include a qatari and was separated by the measures taken by the u.a.e. on the fifth of june two thousand and seventeen that those families must be reunited the students must be given an opportunity to complete their education in the u.a.e. or given the necessary documentation so they can complete it somewhere else and
4:53 pm
that parties must be allowed access to tribunals and other judicial organs within the u.a.e. for those countries who are affected by the measures taken by the u.a.e. when it imposed its blockade let's go to need for aussies the wives at the hague so i've kind of wrapped i think the what the finding is the overall headline here this is a provisional it's not the end of the case but this is a provisional victory for carter right. let me exactly explain what qatar was after it wanted the i.c.j. the un's highest court to rule in favor of it by granting something called provisional measures now they i.c.j. can in some cases take many months maybe even years to deal with cases but if there is deemed to be an urgent risk of harm to the. from certain countries example being
4:54 pm
you know cases like genocidal so on and so forth then the court can grant something called provisional measures that's an immediate binding legal ruling only granted when cases are deemed serious enough to be for them to be granted so what we've heard over the course of this statement being read out to the court there by the presiding charges example after example whereby the court believes that it does have jurisdiction firstly to try to create the case at all and secondly to issue these provisional measures and it's given those provisional measures which are legally binding now form the offset because the u.a.e. is a key signatory of the of this convention of the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination hence it must apply these recommendations are immediately and you mentioned some of the families must be right united students given the opportunity to complete their studies or to retain records of their of their studies to allow them to go on

a study potentially somewhere else and catteries who had been basically told to leave the u.a.e. should be allowed access to judicial services something the car side said that its nationals had been denied in the past and a message to for both countries that both nations should do everything possible to avoid escalating the political standoff any further. nieve now that we've kind of recap the finding let's go back and see perhaps some other important points the court finding a as you touched upon that it does have jurisdiction in this case of a claim that it doesn't. and that the the other statement made that the measures adopted by the u.a.e. did target only those are two important legal points that the court has made correct. yes that's absolutely right and that's something that the u.a.e. here to repeat the lead tonight throughout i was here at the end of june for the
4:56 pm
hearing the initial hearings where both cats are in the u.a.e. had a chance to put forward their argument the u.a.e. denied that there had been any policy a tool to expel qatari nationals from the country and that its argument was with the qatari government not with the cattery people. that it's legal team put forward several arguments and several examples citing students or family members that have been separated as a result of this alleged policy of expulsion and clearly the court has taken those on board and has said as a result that all of those cases were indeed plausible to now give qatar the right to this so-called provisional measures the right to now be able to instruct the u.a.e. to basically been toe the line and follow what the court is now insisting that it must do and the brief i think we've got about forty seconds you need but the court finding an imminent risk that. there is an imminent risk to the rights that is an
4:57 pm
important point as well. yes it is it shows that the court believes there is a degree of urgency and that also it believes that there is a possibility of a long lasting impact. act psychologically but the judge mentioned on cattery nationals that had to undergo the consequences of the results of this expulsion we wait of course to hear what the u.a.e. have to say about it as i mentioned though they've denied that there has been a policy of expulsion bickley the court now has made clear what it believes is indeed going on all right neve sorry did tell us for the second we're going to keep this going a little bit so nice although this is as we need to point out this is a provisional ruling this is a point to which the court says whether there is a sort of emergency situation going on that requires it to step in and make some
4:58 pm
provisional orders until we get to the end of the case which like you said could be months or even years the court has decided let me try and find the exact wording but something along the lines of that it did find that there was a risk for prejudice irreparable prejudice to the rights of the terri's imminent risk and that it needs to step in now this must weigh in to some degree doesn't prejudice the final ruling but it means something does it not in terms of where that final ruling can go it will be very difficult to see the cause of the fire ruling and say there was absolutely no prejudice to cut three rights after this. you're absolutely right the court has pretty much spelt out where it sees the
4:59 pm
situation as things currently stand let's recap of course what i had always said was that the rights of the human rights of its citizens had been violated because the u.a.e. had failed to live up to its obligations under that create that key treaty as a result it said that its citizens were unable to access health care education judicial services they couldn't access their properties or their assets and as a result that should be seen as a violation of their human rights and what the court has made clear in this ruling at least is that it doesn't believe very much that the impact of all of that would be long lasting could well have a psychological impact on people and the u.a.e. needs to do something about it and then an interesting point as well neighbors when the courts are reminded in firm and firm to everyone its findings have binding effect well that's going to be the key question now is how are those decisions going to be implemented.
5:00 pm
or yes the sheer fact of the u.a.e. out of the four countries that it impose the blockade upon qatar is the only one this is a signatory of this convention means that it is judy bound it is legally bound to uphold all of the details within that convention the judge went through point by point areas where the court believes the u.a.e. has erred from that now that does mean that legally going forward the u.a.e. could face other legal challenges other legal measures if it does not make changes if it does not implement what is advised by the court this is as i said the un's highest court what it says essentially goes there's no court higher.
