living conditions healing the economy and fighting corruption will be are you so you can take him out of the reach of a government comes it should do good for us we want water gas and electricity. obviously there are other problems as well they should be problems. in punjab province plans to form a coalition government but he has promised to fight tooth and nail to save their provincial influence the challenge for the cricketer turned politician is to create an inclusive government and then keep it running for five years so far all major political parties apart from the p.d.i. have reservations about the results they've called for an all parties conference in the federal capital islamabad it is going to be a numbers game to form a government and imran khan does not have those numbers alone the big question is who will he form an alliance with. others there are a lot jeremy irwin is a pakistani t.v.
2:04 am
anchor and political analyst he says imran khan has been responding to those rigging claims in a novel way. well this is a very tricky situation because the same thing happened in the last elections when emraan said there was a lot of rigging and his ballot boxes weren't opened not today the opposition is saying exactly the same but here i think we got a breath of fresh air and he said in his speech that he's willing to see whatever allegations and whatever you know mismanagement has been taking place he's willing to basically investigate it but to here the situation is not that e.t.i. has won the situation is the fragility of the matter age which might take place between p m l n and the pox on people's party that is where the real crux lies yemen is who the rebels say they've attacked abu dhabi airport with a drone a u.a.e. official has denied their claim they airport tweeted earlier that there had been an incident involving a supply vehicle but said it had not affected flights or operations it's not clear
2:05 am
if the tweet was referring to the same incident on wednesday the who he said that attacked a saudi arabian naval vessel but the saudis say they actually hit an oil tanker over the last three years the u.a.e. and saudi arabia have been leading a military coalition which is supporting yemen's government and its war against the who things in the past few months rebels have launched a number of missiles into saudi arabia and its capital riyadh well the spokesman for the u.n. secretary general stefan to judge says the latest events highlight the need for dialogue to end the crisis where all these events to underscore the need to put an end to this conflict and to find a political solution as if we still needed to be reminded after all these years after all the suffering of the yemeni people. this conflict is and has been has had regional implications when. commercial navigation
2:06 am
is starting to get impacted the movement of goods from global trade to start to get impacted all these the continuance of this conflict has many many implications the most important one being the suffering of civilians in yemen well david roche is an associate professor at the near east south asia center at the national defense university he's joining us now from washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for your time sir that appears to be a pattern here the who say they've launched an attack and either the saudis of the u.a.e. say either it didn't happen or they hit something else given your experience of this what do you think has happened here. well from what my experience tells me the first rule is that first reports in warfare are often wrong most likely wrong. i think that the these do tend to over exaggerate their reach and their prowess they're aiming for a strategic effect to cause unease in the u.a.e. and the saudi heartland which have been mostly not affected by the war in yemen
2:07 am
they want to bring that war home but the second possibility is that they have been able to have some sort of minor impact and if that is in fact the case i wouldn't be surprised to hear the way i do it if i was a hoot the i'd have a drone attack i'd wait for the denial than i'd show footage but we just don't have enough to know right now if i understand it correctly that up until about early april of this year the majority of attacks that the who things were carrying out involved ballistic missiles then there seemed to be an uptick in the number of attacks that they were claiming were being carried out by drones are we seeing a change in the way that the who these are carrying out this conflict or is it an addition to the way they've been doing it before. i think it's in addition i mean the who these have surprised everybody with their ballistic missile capacity i believe that they are being resupplied by iran and the fact that they have been
2:08 am
able to reach out towards riyadh so far they haven't been able to hit any targets in riyadh but that is disturbing for the saudis. the drones have been an ever present feature of the battlefield they've been providing reconnaissance and providing attacks for the who these and that's just the way of warfare now every modern battlefield now sees drones with the russians have had drone attacks in syria this is just the way it's going to be going forward for everybody if the claim is correct and they have used a drone to attack abu dhabi that specific target abu dhabi airport it seems to have been quite a sophisticated operation if it has come from yemen and it's traveled over i think saudi arabian territory in order to reach that specific target do you think that the who he's actually have the capability to be able to do something like that or has it been launched by somebody else from somewhere else. i don't think that it was launched from the huth the held parts of yemen i think that it's
2:09 am
probable that if there was in fact a drone attack which we're still not sure of that they probably the launchers probably moved towards the u.a.e. or possibly could have launched it within the u.a.e. you know we drones can be very small they can be you know concealed in commercial cargo it's possible that say a truck just offloaded by the side of the road set the drone up with the preposition g.p.s. coordinates and off it goes so we just don't know whole lot here but one thing we do know is that that sort of a long distance would be that would be surprising it would be a stretch for the who the capabilities i know that you've examined some of the drones that the who these have used in the pasta in your assessment who is supplying these drones iran. their chinese commercial drones they come from iran. there's no doubt that iran is supplying off-road mines ballistic
2:10 am
missiles drones and some small arms and that's been verified by a number of n.g.o.s let's widen out the context a little bit obviously there was the attack yesterday on either or a warship or a crude oil tanker depending on which side you talk to in the. strait given this attack that if it has happened as you say as you rightly say we don't yet know the full details but let's assume for the sake of argument that this has been some sort of attack by the who sees what kind of message do you think the who he's a sending by carrying out these types of attacks. yeah well first off it's very very common to mistake ships when you're when you're attacking them so i wouldn't be surprised if the who the narrative you know that they thought they were attacking a warship in his tanker but the impact of this is serious because this strikes at the juggler of saudi arabia in spite of the reforms under vision twenty thirty
2:11 am
which i think everybody says is needed saudi arabia still very dependent on petroleum and so any it has to export that by ship so any threat against free navigation of commercial shipping is a threat not just to saudi arabia but to all the g.c.c. states to include cutter in the u.a.e. . obviously the battle mand is only saudis but this is something will be taken seriously not just by saudi arabia but also by the maritime countries recall the united states you know also took a missile attack and we attacked facilities on the ground in order to do that freedom of navigation is a very serious thing for the united states and for the united states navy to see a major commercial and military partner sees shipping through an area that's that's viewed as a challenge to the u.s. navy i think so this won't last for long without a response from both the saudis and probably from from the americans and other partners let me ask you about the other response we've seen already the way that
2:12 am
the saudis have responded in relation to the incident that happened yesterday in this straight how do you think the u.a.e. is going to respond given the fact that this if it is proved that the who these have actually carried out this this attack and once again we should stress that we don't know whether or not that is the case but if it is proved the night is the case how do you think the u.a.e. is going to respond to that. it's hard to see to be honest i mean the u.a.e. is pretty much. fully committed into yemen there's not much more they can do that they can't do without incurring a great deal of damage to civilian infrastructure and the criticism from their security partners in the west. i think one possibility they might look at is bringing the fight to the iranian sponsors of the who thiis iran did not create the who thinks but iran does support the who these and his capitalizing off of them and so i think that it's possible you might see some sort of retaliatory measure
2:13 am
against. vulnerable raney in facility or maybe shipping in the gulf something of that nature but in general the iranians have shown a great deal of forbearance and if they're saying there's no attack then it's logical there won't be any reaction to the attack that they say didn't exist good as always to get your response to this david roche thank you very much indeed but i'm going to station has set off a new diplomatic row with turkey over a u.s. citizen who's been in jail since twenty sixteen and as our state department correspondent rosalynn jordan reports the threat of sanctions against ankara came during a conference to promote religious freedom. u.s. vice president mike pence talked about persecution during the first ever state department conference on protecting religious freedom around the world hence highlighted the case of u.s. born minister andrew bronson jailed nearly two years ago in turkey on charges he was involved in the attempted coup against president recip tayyip erdogan on but no
2:14 am
one expected pence to say this if turkey does not take immediate action to free this innocent man of faith and send him home to america. the united states will impose significant sanctions on turkey until pastor andrew bronson is free to nap after a tweet from president donald trump confirming the threat he is suffering greatly this innocent man of faith should be released immediately the turkish foreign minister immediately fired back also on twitter no one dictates to turkey we will never tolerate threats from anybody rule of law is for everyone no exception no i said i do this on you not to the fight over bronson's legal freedom has reignited what seemed to be a bit of reconciliation between the u.s. and turkey trump recently congratulated aired a one on winning reelection raising hopes the two could result disputes over
2:15 am
turkey's plans to buy russian made missile defense systems and over u.s. support for courage fighters battling eisel in syria the sanctions threat against turkey has overshadowed what was supposed to be one of the trumpet ministrations foreign policy initiatives protecting human rights or more specifically protecting religious freedom the conference discussed how people's religious beliefs make them targets for everything from harassment to death and what the international community can do to protect them indeed the vice president's speech highlighted the abuse suffered by the real hinge of me and maher the use edis of iraq and syria to bouton buddhists at the hands of beijing and jews living in europe and the united states but two new programs that pends announced may do more to help small christian communities around the world than these other people's human rights groups say that's worrisome what was most troubling for me with the absence of any
2:16 am
notion that people have the right not to practice the faith. and for national that people have the right not to have someone else's faith imposed upon them but this new call flick with turkey may end up overshadowing the u.s. efforts to protect people's right to worship as well as the oversight to ensure the u.s. doesn't impose its beliefs on other countries rosalyn jordan al-jazeera the state department an israeli and a palestinian man have died after a reported stabbing attack in the occupied west bank there's really was living in the illegal settlement of adam to this for them allah he died from stab wounds israeli soldiers shot and killed a palestinian they say carried out the attack two more israeli settlers have been injured the military wing of hamas in gaza says it's on high alert after three palestinians were killed by israeli attacks a commando for the al qassam brigades says israel will pay the price for the air
2:17 am
strikes and tank fire israeli army spokesman says it responded after troops were shot at near the border with gaza hamas leaders agreed to a cease fire with israel a few days ago to prevent hostilities from escalating. but he more ahead on the news including chinese president xi jinping calls for a joint effort to fight trade protectionism at the brics meeting. but trade isn't the only thing on the bricks agenda we'll tell you why some entrepreneurs in brazil think technology may offer a solution to many of the group's shared problems. thank you and we hear from alex ferguson for the first time since the manchester united legendary manager underwent brain surgery that's a sport with joe. french president emanuel says he's opposed to a new trade deal between the e.u.
2:18 am
and the united states in the comments during his first official visit to spain to meet the country's new socialist prime minister petro sanchez also said that europe and france never wanted a trade war with the united states by example on that for example in terms of access to the american public markets which are today primarily closed we need clear gestures from the united states we need signals of the escalations on the steel and i'll minium where illegal taxes have been applied by the united states and in my opinion that intervention in the subject matters before taking any further steps campbell is on is joining us now from washington d.c. gave donald trump and john close were very positive about the results of this deal that they say they've reached but it seems as though that might be a little short lived. yeah a little short lived but that sure hasn't stopped u.s. president donald trump from taking his message out to middle america that's where he was on thursday at
2:19 am
a steel plant in the state of illinois it's the first time the president has visited this state since becoming president he took his message there and it was a message it was very clear it was a message of a great victory in the words of donald trump victory because he's framing this agreement with the you're paying commission chief that he struck here in washington as a victory not only for him but for his administration but also for steelworkers and other industries in the u.s. this was a very nationalistic speech that. gave this invitation only crowd at this steel plant in illinois this is a little bit more of what he had to say there we have reached a breakthrough agreement yesterday with the european union john manley referred to as europe. to begin lowering trade barriers and establishing
2:20 am
a trade relationship that is fair and my favorite word receptor protocol receptor a call. what all the key trade divisions in the u.s. . well if trump wanted to see him he didn't have to look that far because they're right there in the state of illinois where he was today look at listen the billions of dollars in tariffs on goods from china that the trump administration has levied that has helped the steel industry in the u.s. the very people that trump was speaking to right there but also in the state of illinois it is the biggest producer of soybeans and soybean farmers as well as many are other farmers throughout the u.s. are hurting because of tariffs that have been reciprocity tariffs that have been put by china against u.s. agriculture industry such as soybeans so you get to really see the division cyrano a lot of the farmers and middle america's it's really called here are saying that
2:21 am
they're simply losing patience with this tit for tat trade war whether it be with europe or with china because it has having some serious of facts on them we're seeing that particularly with farmers are saying that it's hurting them very badly and that's why also trump on thursday visited some farmers in iowa and basically his message was patience patience patience will get through this but we need to renegotiate these trade deals but clearly donald trump was a one man that said earlier this year he said that famously said that trade wars were good and easily won i think now it's pretty clear the u.s. president's finding that it's not quite as easy as perhaps he first thought bill thanks very much indeed. leaders of the brics bloc of emerging economies are calling for an open and inclusive trading system that comes in the wake of a number of protectionist tariffs introduced by u.s. president donald trump has more from the annual bric summit being held in
2:22 am
johannesburg. leaders from five of the world's leading emerging markets say they are united when it comes to trade they say protectionism which is being pushed by u.s. president donald trump should be rejected. what is constant is the flare up of geopolitical conflicts and the escalation of protectionism an intellectual ism they directly affect emerging markets and developing countries. we must work together with the united nations the g twenty and the world trade organization to safeguard the rules based multilateral trading system liberalise and facilitate trade and investment and reject protection is it outright. it's the first time presidents from the brics trade bloc are meeting says donald trump threatened to impose tariffs on chinese imports economists say the trade could also hurt smaller countries some peer transplants will stifle global economic growth leaders at the bric summit say
2:23 am
increasing global trade encourages economies of all countries to grow but emerging economies could be damaged if the u.s. imposes tariffs on certain goods. to impose tariffs have given brazil russia india china and south africa more reason to increase trade cooperation between them it's also force china the world they could not just economy after the united states to look for other markets to buy and sell its products china has been the most important trading partner with the u.s. so as u.s. to china on but now with those leading trade tension we care in certain bad in the next few years to trade between those two countries will be heard for a wad along with very volatile exchange rate market exchange market. for china to extend or to strengthen other relations are europe and africa as
2:24 am
top choices because of the sheer shock sheer size of those markets brics leaders in south africa have suggested and never need to be held world players discuss the differences and perhaps prevent a global trade war for that to happen all parties have to agree to come to the table and try to find a balance between promoting national interests and those of the global community how to us al-jazeera janice burg. while at the big summit in south africa innovators and engineers from brazil are hoping that advances in their country's technology industry can help solve many of the development problems encountered by fellow emerging nations reports. brazil believes it has the solutions to many of the problem shared by its fellow brics members such as in medicine and aviation all major developing economies home to forty percent of the world's population with a vision that most would agree is straining to fulfil its potential the world is becoming less western white and less concentrated less homogeneous and it would be

run colorado's looking wet and could be some flash flooding in places showers across the desert southwest became very warm weather for british columbia through into washington state seattle there temperatures into the thirty's so as we move that forecasting see how that front moves further towards the southeast during supper and weakens but this area across the west actually intensifies and extends down into parts of texas through into the caribbean the islands for the most part are looking fine few heavy showers for cuba through towards the bahamas but otherwise with him plenty of sunshine kingston jamaica the highs of thirty two chance of panama costa rican up towards nicaragua and a few showers still on the pacific coastline of mexico but mexico city itself expected to stay relatively dry and fine we have heavy showers across northern parts of south america but largely fine conditions further south the rain across the river plate region is clearing away the fourteen and what is areas but still rather chilly in santiago.

2:30 am
you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories at this hour former cricketer imran khan has declared victory in pakistan's elections around half of the votes have been counted the official result isn't likely to be confirmed until friday but he's leading a rival shahbaz sharif as rejected the outcome making allegations of vote rigging. yemen's who the rebels say they've attacked abu dhabi airport with a droll box the u.a.e. has denied the claim airports tweeted earlier that there had been an incident but said it had not affected flights or operations it's not clear if the tweet was
2:31 am
referring to the same incident. french president emanuel mark kong has rejected any new trade deal between the e.u. and the united states. that europe and france never wanted a trade war and that the u.s. needs to make clear gestures and it's part of reducing the trade dispute facebook stock has taken a nosedive losing nineteen percent of its value in thursday's trading that wiped out one hundred and twenty billion dollars in market value that's the biggest single day loss for any publicly traded stock ever the plunge came after the social media giants earnings fell short of expectations and amid warnings about its future growth kristen salumi reports from new york. for facebook which has experienced exponential growth since its initial public offering in two thousand and twelve it was an uncharacteristic plunge in market value after an uncharacteristically bad quarterly report on thursday share prices tumbled sure profits were up thirty one
2:32 am
percent over last year but for the first time since two thousand and fifteen they fell short of expectations to some extent this correction was expected i think the smart money had expected this. and when you are priced for perfection there's no margin of error a series of scandals seem to be catching up to the social media company founder mark zuckerberg was called to account by congress over russia's use of the platform to try to influence the two thousand and sixteen election we didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake and it was my mistake and i'm sorry and the harvesting of user data through the political consulting firm cambridge analytical the company says increases in security spending are likely to continue eating into profits and tougher user protection laws in europe have already cost the company some three million users but there's some structural issues right now and they need to really work that out it's going to take some time but at the end at the end of the day at
2:33 am
the very end of the day facebook is a good company facebook remains one of the most valuable publicly traded companies heading into the two thousand and eighteen midterm elections when its new security protocols will be put to the test mark zuckerberg is attempting to reassure investors saying that this time he's confident the social media company will get it right christine salumi al-jazeera new york. the deputy executive director i'm general counsel of the electronic freedom foundation is joining us now via skype from san francisco thanks very much indeed for being with us how much of this do you think is down to facebook running out of areas for growth and how much is done to the bad publicity that its side. well i think it's got to be a bit of i mean certainly facebook has billions of users and there is a lower number you know they can only grow so much they cannot double again unless a lot more people start getting onto the internet where the same time they are
2:34 am
facing some challenges in the areas of privacy especially g.d.p. are that may impact their profitability but maybe that's all right maybe it's ok if they are a company that is slightly less profitable but more protective of the privacy of the users as we heard in kristen's report there one of the market on the santos was saying that to some extent this had been expected some sort of correction was in line and yet it seems the only one hundred twenty billion dollars to be wiped off the market value seems very significant was this is suspected in is that an overreaction. well it certainly is a very large amount but keep in mind that there's still a five hundred billion dollar company even after this correction so it's all it's all a matter of perspective when the cambridge analytical is came out there was a little bit of dip in there scott stock price then they are in some dips related to g.d.p. or compliance so all of this is part of an overall assessment but you know it maybe they should be satisfied with being a five hundred billion dollar company if they can do that and it gives more privacy
2:35 am
to you that's just give us a quick piece of context here the g.d.p. that you're referring to describe that to us. g.d.p. are the general data protection regulation comes from the european union and it's a new set of rules designed to provide more user rights require more consent from users to protect their privacy and affects companies doing business in europe as facebook does as most of the major internet companies do the way facebook is structured if i understand it correctly this still means that mark zuckerberg is going to be in control pretty much whatever happens but of course that puts all the responsibility for fixing all of this on to him how much pressure is he going to be under from his fellow investors. well he's already under a lot of pressure being hauled in front of congress to give some testimony can certainly put a lot of pressure on a company and i'm hopeful that the pressure that he's facing from investors is one that's looking at more long term not trying to maximize short term profits that
2:36 am
might lead to things that have been pressuring privacy for the users and look trying to make an ecosystem there that will respect privacy give user options and still be able to make a profitable company within those limitations if part of the problem is as facebook says it's essentially running out of humans it's reaching a kind of saturation point how can it change and develop to try to move forward as a company one of the things i see that facebook has been doing is trying to get more humans online there are a lot of places in the world where there's not good internet connections and i think facebook has already been active in bringing internet to those and that's an interesting social benefit that may come from their quest for more users who actually improving networking in certain areas of the world but nevertheless the other thing is to build a business that is not premised on maximizing growth but to to provide a good experience how people want to come back people have been leaving in part
2:37 am
because they don't see what they like on the service and want to have one that is more protective of their privacy of their or their rights and so create an environment that people want to come back to cut off of electronic freedom foundation thank you very much thank you. a court ordered deadline for donald trump's government to reunite two thousand five hundred families that separated the us mexico border is just hours away but hundreds of undocumented families are still waiting to be reunited at least one thousand and twelve children have been successfully reunited with their parents but the government also says four hundred sixty three parents have already left the u.s. it's not known if they were forcibly deported several hundred others are still under review. it's also not known how long families will be given to decide whether to seek asylum the government's proposed a four day waiting period but the american civil liberties union says a full week is necessary the u.s.
