4:00 am
nights on higher ground a few men came down to collect their belongings. but. come to help push it we have a little bit of food we're still waiting for help from the government and praying it will arrive soon. with the mosque severely damaged prayers are held outdoors. all the time being we're trying to calm everyone down by spending the night in the hills many are still in panic and traumatized it's better for us to stay there maybe one or two weeks until help arrives. more search and rescue workers have reached the island two days after the earthquake struck the digging for survivors with their bare hands trying to recover the body of a shop owner trapped under the rubble with his wife she was taken out alive. this woman was lucky to know what and fourteen hours after the quake struck she was rescued from the debris house because of the rescue operation has been here at this mosque
4:01 am
where initial reports said that times of people were buried under the rubble so far two have been found alive but no most science of life has been detected and rescue workers say that a lack of heavy equipment is seriously hampering the chances of finding anyone alive. after two days of digging and searching rescue workers have stopped the operation but. we really don't really need heavy equipment like excavators i don't know why they're not here that's not our responsibility we have brought all our own equipment and. finally an excavator arrives at the not a mosque where cries for help or hurt hours after the quake for two days relatives had tried to get rescue teams to look for people in the rubble but help may have come too late because no one has been found alive step fasten al-jazeera them and
4:02 am
none. much more to come on the program including rights groups slammed bangladesh over its handling of student led protests and the detention of journalists who reported it. also coming up rescuers dig by hand to find survivors from sunday's earthquake on the island of long. hello and welcome to international weather forecast warm air is streaming up across central parts of europe thirty five thirty six degrees on the cards for berlin on wednesday in the warm air extending all weapons to southern parts of sweden on a warm day in stockholm some severe storms still around though across parts of eastern france through into the alpine region and space to continue as we head on through into thursday all westerners also seeing some heavy rain with
4:03 am
a chance of some significant storms a much much cooler conditions for the u.k. nineteen degrees in london but those central areas still looking very warm indeed on the other side of the mediterranean sea weather conditions looking fine we've got thirty seven as a high in cairo rising to thirty eight as we head on through thursday but otherwise fine conditions we've lost all the showers that been across to nazir for instance into central parts of africa showers across the ethiopian highlands across sudan also but showers across chad and chamonix still seeing some downpours bamako looking fairly west of the moment indeed some heavy rain likely across parts of west africa generally and then as we head down into southern portions of africa at the moment it's looking large draw and fine but by the time we get into thursday we could well see some snow across parts of the.

4:05 am
sanctions came into force china russia and the e.u. of all criticize the u.s. . a diplomatic dispute between saudi arabia and canada over human rights is escalating with the kingdom's national carrier canceling its flights between jeddah and toronto. columbia's new president is you to be inaugurated in the next a half hour event is the young this colombian leader to be elected in a popular vote he faces a number of challenges including shoring up an increasingly shaky peace process diffusing tensions with venezuela and curbing cocaine production let's go live now to miner apollo who is in bogota and that's a pretty long to do list not one for the faint hearted what says biggest focus actually going to be. you're absolutely right it's it is a long list of. of challenges that the new president is going to be faced with
4:06 am
after today all of them are actually wind in one way or another front and center one thing that we have been notice a lot of people talk about is the issue of illicit crop cultivations over the last few years we've seen a sharp rise in the cultivation of coca which is the the right greeting in the production of cocaine this this sharp increase in the production of coca coincides with the timing of the peace deal that the government side signed with the revolutionary armed forces of colombia or the foreign and so what we've been seeing in these rural parts of the country is that in the absence of these territories controlled by the part new or of groups some of them being dissenters from the far others or or do armed groups that are opposed to the government. are fighting for control of these territories and it's sort of opening the gates for illicit cultivation another big issue that the new president is going to be faced with is the issue of venezuela not only not not only mediating this this refugee crisis and see it influx of every anywhere between
4:07 am
a thousand and two thousand venezuelan refugees coming into colombia every day. trying to figure out how to reestablish diplomatic tensions for example we already know the president said that he will not be appointing an ambassador to venezuela signaling that those diplomatic relations are practically nonexistent but again a whole plethora of challenges awaiting for the new president here in colombia so a very young president relatively speaking with a lot of challenges to people there and very high expectations of him. i think so judging i mean the rally that we are out right now is actually in opposition rally and people are in very high spirits i think that there's a lot of a lot of optimism about the new president coming in but at the same time a lot of worry a lot of tension for example the people that are at this pro at this protest right now are are here because they're trying to highlight in college tension to an increase of assassinations against civil society leaders assassinations against
4:08 am
human rights leaders so mediating in bridging that divide that exists here in colombia is going to be yet another challenge for the new president a. man who had with the latest there in bogota many well thank you. human rights watch has accused the bangladesh government of using heavy handed tactics to stop a student led protest that has swept the country the protests began last week after two schoolchildren were killed in a road accident the rights group is also demanding the release of reporters have been detained for covering the unrest imran khan reports. what started his protests in high schools has now got university students on the move in the capital dhaka and beyond police have tried to stop the protests using take gas and rubber coated bullets observers say the government of prime minister sharon is concerned the protests could become larger and he's using tactics it's used before. i do this and my own person in.
4:09 am
this government is behaving in a way that bangladeshi governments are very used to behaving in terms of this and they just see people selling dissent even though they're young and what they're protesting is way beyond any kind party political issue they haven't been able to show anything on it in the usual way of responding to this which has been a lot before. it all began ten days ago after a speeding bus killed two two ladies in late july student demonstrators took to the streets calling for tougher law enforcement of bangladeshi road traffic the government says it's going to introduce the death penalty for some road traffic accidents. human rights groups have weighed in as the government crackdown has spread to arresting journalists show hill islam a photographer who was arrested sunday after appearing on al-jazeera and criticizing the government human rights watch wants an investigation into
4:10 am
allegations he was beaten in jail after these pictures emerged of him in court and also saying ruling party workers attacked protesters. the government's deny the allegations that its activists were involved bangladesh's government has been accused of arresting thousands of opposition activists in recent years there's widespread anger about that on the road deaths on social media the government has responded by restricting internet access imran khan. at least twenty three people most of them young girls have been rescued from an alleged prostitution ring in northern india they were found in a privately run shelter in uttar pradesh state after one of the girls escaped and complained to police andrew thomas reports now from new delhi. these are some of the girls rescued from police say was forced prostitution their home in northern india had to be in a charitable shelter for children without stable families but last year its owners
4:11 am
lost their lives since the shelter should have closed it didn't instead say place it's kept girls captive renting them out for six. we conducted raids at three or four places in two hours and rescue nearly twenty four girls and we're still looking for fifteen more children. police found out about what was going on when one girl escaped she ran to a nearby police station and described how the woman running the home kept children captive she used to say that they would kill us she used to threaten us she took children to the office once and told us to hit the policeman our media it became. children being forced into prostitution is relatively common in india the government's national commission for the protection of child rights says care homes often hide it about a quarter of a million children live in one of seven thousand of them of which a fish are unregistered with little official oversight when such
4:12 am
a balance is exposed the associated criminal cases are often poorly prosecuted first of all investigations are not done in the manner that really standish the case in the court because scrutiny of the court most of the cases i'm not able to stand and then second thing in the time in the cases so we've missed on so starting there is no proof it is everything gets lost by the time because really comes to a final. nationwide protests about women's safety a growing issue of children safety is increasingly wrapped up in those place here again to show that they are exposing and ending child sexual abuse but the truth in this case is that they got lucky one girl escaped advocates for children the authorities need to be much more active in finding and then hopefully prosecuting those who exploit children one rescue does little to address a chronic nationwide problem after thomas al-jazeera. hearings are taking place
4:13 am
a brazil supreme court mauls the potential legalization of abortion doctors specialists and religious figures have been testifying to the court the issue provokes strong feelings in the country where abortion is illegal in almost all cases and your shrine live reports. an estimated half a million brazilian women have abortions every year it's still illegal under the nine hundred forty penal code except in cases of rape if the woman's health is at risk or in the case of an insufferably and stephanie has a baby is born without brains there's a strong movement here to keep that door as it is especially for the religious organizations the catholic church and the very strong. but the movement is changing there is a growing movement to have that law changed to have abortion legalized the supreme court judges are very keen to hear as many people opinions as possible and over the last three days i've been speaking to groups from all sides of the debate from those church groups for women's groups human rights and health workers to hear what
4:14 am
they have to say before they sit and make a decision about changing the law there's a social movement right across latin america to have abortion legalized how the law are relaxed to some degree this debate this public debate in brazil comes finishes just the day before in argentina there is pressure right across latin america to relax the abortion laws this three days of debates a public hearing in brazil comes just before on wednesday the upper house of the argentinean congress will decide whether to legalize abortion then after the lower house of congress passed a law back in june. a wildfire burning in northern california has become the largest in the state's history it's the steroid more than a thousand square kilometers an area almost the size of the city of los angeles the fire started in the cleveland national forest and forced nearby areas to be
4:15 am
evacuated another fast moving fire is now ignited in orange county. meanwhile a wildfire in portugal's algarve region near a popular tourist area has flared up again the blaze was almost forced on the control on monday but the country's fire agency says changes in the wind rekindled the flames forty four people have so far needed medical assistance. or local swimming pools are even being used to help tackle the fire twelve a water dropping planes and helicopters have been gathering water from the pools and pouring it on to the flames. in kenya and tanzania people are marking the twentieth anniversary of civil ten years from attacks on the u.s. embassies in nairobi and dar es salaam a prayer meeting was held in nairobi to remember the two hundred and twenty four people killed by suicide bombers affiliated with al qaida the u.s. response to the attack involved firing missiles at alleged al qaeda targets in
4:16 am
afghanistan and saddam. almost five thousand people were injured in the attacks we heard from one of them at the site of the nairobi bombing about how survivors can rise above their personal tragedies my name is douglas and. i was in this location when i got blinded. of the one thousand nine hundred eight years in both bombing in kenya. i never knew i would be in the wrong place. wrong time. when i lost my son so i was a bit a bit above in fact i imagine that if if. the man behind that barbaric and he knows act of cards out of keeping them alive so that he could feel and experience they've been going through. and over and we've lost their loved one but don't delight. i realize that bitterness
4:17 am
and anger only hinders. so my brain is of a challenge and tools with like. i'm currently involved in. information communication technology. business and energy. space. space we are victims but we could be victims whatever we have to pick up all these pieces and move on with a like. they have been most attacks are only world. vision of terrorism does not really being white the arab israeli being american we are all but victims of these but buddy up to code they say i don't know what this was about to read a little of themselves us so viber does but didn't do something that
4:18 am
they can look at and say i'm not as a bio but i'm a victim because i have conducted. the words there of a survivor and the victor in his own words of the attack on the u.s. embassy in nairobi twenty years ago now much more on that and everything else we have been covering here on al-jazeera on our website there it is the address al jazeera dot com. and now a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera iran's foreign minister has held talks with his north korean counterparts as u.s. sanctions on iranian goods come into effect the homage of adds a reef to every home haul in tehran and was feeling seen as a defiant message for the u.s.
4:19 am
president. trampas tweeted that the sanctions are the most binding ever imposed and has warned businesses not to war with iran our white house correspondent kimberly halkett says some of them are listening while the governments are doing one thing business is doing something very different in the last couple of hours we have news that the french automaker peugeot citroen and an even dollar all saying they will not do business with a rod so certainly be us continue to wield some clout given the fact that it holds that the u.s. dollar is the world's currency the question comes though when those very punishing sanctions we've been talking about in november against iran's oil industry what impact that could have whether the u.s. will continue to hold sway. a different dispute between saudi arabia and counted over human rights is escalating with the kingdom's national carrier canceling its flights between jeddah and toronto on monday riyadh froze all new business with canada and that's after canada called for the release of activists detained in
4:20 am
saudi arabia. where the ceremony for the inauguration of columbia's new president is underway right now in the capital of bogota even duke it will be the youngest colombia leader to be elected in a popular vote once he's sworn in he faces challenges including shoring up a peace process with far rebels and the fusing tensions with venezuela. rescue teams in indonesia have yet to reach parts of long island where the search is continuing for survivors of sunday's earthquake that the structure of roads and bridges is making it difficult for emergency crews to access some areas at least one hundred five people were killed in the magnitude six point nine quake. a wildfire burning in northern california has become the largest in the state's history the fire has destroyed more than a thousand square kilometers an area that's almost the size of the city of los angeles and i have more news for you in half an hour stay with us coming up next
4:21 am
it's the stream for watching. my name so you're right again i'm an associate director for the gun violence prevention team of the center for american progress and your english. high up on the ok welcome to the string of the body i'm really could be loud if you're watching us on you to chat us your comments or questions we'll try to get them into the show today kilo robotic technology should it be banned we'll look at the debate over letting weapons decide or when to pull the trigger.
4:22 am
using artificial intelligence or ai weapons of war are being programmed to be smarter and more independent but should machines be given the ability to decide when and who to kill representatives are meeting this week in geneva to consider a preemptive ban on all thomas weapons technology that may someday power what activists call killer robots the world's high tech militaries including the u.s. russia and israel are all eagerly pursuing ai applications but is there a line developers shouldn't cross when creating weapons designed to think for themselves or with us to talk about this in london l.k. schwartz she's a member of the international committee for robot arms control or i cry she lectures at the university of leicester and is the author of a soon to be released book death machines the ethics of violent technologies in geneva paul shari he is senior fellow and director of the technology and national
4:23 am
security program at the center for a new america. insecurity and also author of a forthcoming book army of nine autonomous weapons and the future of war and in san francisco alex i'll keep her he is a writer and futurist and the co-author of the driver in the driverless car welcome to all of our i guess you could have a book club with just you three. here so we asked our community their thoughts laws which is lethal autonomous weapon systems and what some are calling killer robots this is what one person tweeted us back and that's because this is what's in the public imagination it's a gift and it's from the black mirror and it depicts a robot designed to kill this robot in fact is taking a knife and it's going to pursue a woman but paula how far from reality is this what's your definition of a lethal autonomous weapon the kinds of intelligent robots that are in that black
4:24 am
mirror episode which is a great. a ways away still there still in science fiction it would be possible to build weapons today at home to military targets things like radars that are emitting in the electromagnetic spectrum would be easier to distinguish particularly if you're flying through the air or or at sea you were there's not a lot of well there are objects or civilians in the way. i guess i'm just curious about this phrase killer robots when i say it i don't know if it's a cry or it's a lawful i have to exact opposite emotions. this time is it helpful to us to understand exactly what we're talking about. and say but that's right i don't think i'm off i get you to a feeling good shape. just give you a beat catch a breath of this race killer robots yeah i think it's
4:25 am
a useful tool. against sanitizing what the technology could potentially do which is kill so it might be slightly overdrawn it might appear to be slightly overdrawn and of course it invokes always the idea that the image of a terminator but i think it's useful to have a bucket of time analogy in order to also bring it home to the general public what the signal is you could potentially be on about so i think it's quite a useful term is it technically accurate. is a different story about i think of the useful i'm just selling out so everybody understands for the rest of this conversation. a killer robot. autonomous weapon system is a weapon that can make a decision about a kill without human necessarily being involved in that equation that weapon cahill by itself but so that the controversial technology that is being debated is lethal autonomous weapon systems and the function that is most controversial about the
4:26 am
critical functions which means engaging selecting a target and engaging in a target meaning finding somebody and killing somebody just make it bluntly and so actually just interject they're going to be situations where humans may be killed because the system is doing its job recognizing an image or footprint so for example there's talking about if there's a human in the radio station they would die if it struck or if it is programmed to recognize a tank as a russian style tank you know field of battle but it is a target there are humans in the tank and they could die so there's a sort of these gradations along the way it's not just wind you know human identify them kill them so this definition when you can argue about what you're talking about the gradations i hear you paula i'll give this to you alex mentions the greedy actions i get what you're saying but i want to make sure our audience is on the same. one person sent us an example and i want to hear what you think about it t.v. gordon says when that man in dallas killed four cops they blew him up with
4:27 am
a robot so this is clearly real and happening now and what he is referencing is something that happened in twenty sixteen this is from the guardian use of police robot to kill the dallas shooting suspect believed to be first in u.s. history and it was the lethal use of a bomb disposal robot is that what we're talking about here is a slightly different because the robot itself didn't decide to deliver that bomb. but did not did not make the kill decision i'll apologize. it's a very different i mean there are there are sixteen countries today that already have weaponized robots and a number of non-state groups so the debate going on internationally about autonomous weapons is really looking forward into the future and saying ok describe what happens when the robots themselves are making the decisions and so it's not people killing other people with robots it's people launching robots and then the robots are making these decisions there is some debate over whether we're talking about robots that are targeting people or military objects and depending on who he
4:28 am
talks to people of very different views about you know what's acceptable i want to share with people because we're not in science fiction right now there's a story that you put out in the wall street journal and you say meet the new robot intelligent machines that could in an era of autonomous warfare already here i want to give people a couple of examples these are illustrations but these are. pieces of weaponry that are being used right now the you ran nine what's the you and i what does that do people. so it's there you are nine is a russian ground combat nicole that is entirely robotic it is equipped with a machine gun and anti-tank rockets so it would you know designed to go toe to toe with other tanks and then blow months and there'd be no one always at all inside it now what's not clear is who's pulling the trigger is there were human remotely deciding and that is really the essence of the question with an atomic weapon or is
4:29 am
the robot deciding on its own we don't know you can look at it like you can't see from the outside what software has and how it's that you can. do another one here this is interesting this takes us into the oceans here it's called out of the this isn't us is the sea hunter yeah this is a u.s. navy ship that is totally unmanned on the surface that's designed to hunt for enemy submarines right and it's clearly unarmed has no weapons but the u.s. has talked about putting missiles on it in the future so this is actually out there why are we getting illustrations pull and not the real thing and let the this so i think. that maybe it was all right. well i could show you but then i'd have to kill you one more hey this is a long range and to ship missile. yes so this is the long range missile. it's sort of on the cutting edge of intelligent missiles today yeah
4:30 am
a human still decides the target right there you see ok. a human said i'm going to take out that ship with a missile has a lot about on me and how it gets to the ship and to navigate on itself so what i understand i read your article very carefully is that if it seems obstacles on its way it's not going to do a little detour and blow up something else it's going to make a decision and can't going on to its target and the missile that is going to be thinking that's right and the missile has the ability all on its own to avoid other threats that might be in its way caesar ship between on their way to a target. that's right little xnu around it just stay on course to its target if it works as designed which is a question a couple people are bringing up what happens when they don't and who then takes responsibility for that i want to play a video comment from thompson chan get out and he talks about some of the legal implications behind this and direct this to you have
4:31 am
a listen we're killer. we are likely to hear on the beauty gap you know you mean responsibility for used to weapons this is an affront to the record prints and the international human rights law that victims have the right to remove it right to remove includes prosecution of the perpetrator in the initial human terror in legal norms tennis in this case it is not the law that his to keep up with the technology it is due to that should keep or conform with the law. so ok who is responsible if the robot makes a mistake. yes may have but so the million dollar question really and i wholeheartedly agree with this comment in the in the video clip the problem really
4:32 am
is that when you have to acknowledge the way you don't exactly know where the decisions made or how the business is made. who can be accountable. and you can feel responsible about it so it's not as easy as it would be with a ok i'm using a tool and i'm actually actively pulling the trigger i am that responsible as a whole decision mechanism which cannot necessarily be attributed to a single person or a unit that could be happening either decision could be happening by programming through an operator and a whole system of participants so putting your finger on accountability or responsibility in the first place and then big accountability is really difficult with the systems and that is obviously a huge problem for existing frameworks. i also add that countermeasures are something that we've seen in military systems forever they will be deployed against
4:33 am
the ai systems as well to potentially to really tragic results so i mean we already see systems or in situations where non-state actors use human shields to hide military targets behind them or you could see that is the reverse for political means meaning that they make a school bus look like a tank to draw a i fire additionally there's a whole field of computer science know in ai called adversarial that. are adversarial attacks we make things appear to be something that they're not in order to fool the ai so i mean as we strip humans out of the decision loop and the time between essentially the decision being made and the impact happening or the trigger being polled the problem got goes to nearly zero the time to correct these kind of errors shrinks and becomes negligible so get the the problem here is the accountability gap is is a risk it could happen but there's actually no principle in the labs of war that says you have to hold an individual person accountable that's actually not a thing it's appealing personally i think to many people to say well who's
4:34 am
responsible for this but there's nothing in the laws of war that says you have to have that and there are actually then that that happened today with people with humans. sure but there is something really profoundly morally troubling about not having anybody be accountable specifically when it comes to kill decisions specifically when it comes to decisions to eliminate a human being or an entire group of human beings so saying that ok well this may happen this may not happen it happens in other contexts it's not really how close to unpack or perhaps even limits what is quite kid in a country ability with systems in which a decision may be preprogrammed. in which you know i mean our adage shouldn't be taken so right there actually isn't really what i'm actually describing counter-measures like different terrorist group decided to fall in a i instead ended up walking up a school and you get those things happen today they do with their eye it's going to
4:35 am
be much more difficult much more challenging and i don't mean that most of what's happening with their eyes we make it sound like it's some required to or magic technology and it's actually all been source software in the computer necessary to run it is shrinking and shrinking and i will be something that every actor can use that is able to affect limited play baby systems then here is another problem with the bias by is an artificial intelligence systems and this is something that the entire artificial intelligence community now if you want to just want to just give an example for us a very quick visit example for what you mean by nice. ok so my prime example always bias is something that we're all familiar with but if you go into your google search engine and you type in vo and this is an example that kate crawford uses when she talks about i think bias and you type in what you will find is usually usually largely white middle aged men as women barbie is
4:36 am
a bit sort of scattered among unifying women it's all blonde women too. so we won't stop and also how does it makes know that. i've actually written about algorithmic yes your studies of saying ok continue yes so the way things are labels. in order to be able to be. process through algorithms is by no means clear cut right than that or that you know in the training that it. is all decisions that are made before hand and they may not necessarily represent the entire diversity of. the population you're dealing with and so once that is in the system it's very difficult to untangle disentangle. you know what is already data that is coming in as biased and what comes out. ok you're basically saying we could end up with racist weaponry yeah definitely.
4:37 am
i hear you there alex but i am glad that you brought that up because we got this question specifically on that case what your human biases will be programmed into the robot she's assuming that they already will be but of course we're all biased so that is a good assumption but i want to shift just a little bit here to bring up this week from anthony who says the list of countries who wants to ban them is the same as the list of countries that can make them be careful what you're cheering for it may not exactly be accurate but paul his point there i think is well taken and you being someone who actually has been in the arena of war you are in the military what do you make of being on a battlefield when automated weapons are either alongside you on your side or on the opposing side. when we look at america it's a great point when you look at the list of countries that have said to support a brand none of them are leading military developers and what's driving so many of them their desire to support a band is not humanitarian concerns it's politics now the n.g.o.s like iraq and
4:38 am
others they're motivated by the humanitarian concern but for many of these countries they don't have to know thomas weapons or to know that they're against them because they know they're not the ones building them and look at some of the worst a lot of them are not leaders in global human rights and so you know enter nationally all tamil who were drugs the conversation is politics among nations. i'm just curious about this list despite all of this down to basics the fact that you go to war using a machine on the sense of my point that's making its own decisions ok why is that worse than going to war without that. because i think when we go to war we have to think about how to achieve peace so there should be a reluctance towards violence or you could use the violence the church not but we're already having l.k. that's not even real that's not realistic i mean that's a historian's perspective know that at the end of this war that we're already in
4:39 am
that there's going to be peace negotiations but we're in it right now and we're killing people why do you why would you be more upset about how you killed somebody . because certain technologies i fear lower the threshold for the use of violence so there's more violence and. there is plenty of scholarship that shows that more violence is not likely to lead to a more peaceful context down the road in fact there's an escalator. dimension to that so as you lower the threshold for the use of violence and as you feel or as the as the current thinking becomes the thinking becomes ok we can have this technology where we can perhaps engage. more risk free in. the application of violence i think distortion takes place in terms of how or the dimensions that are necessary to solve the conflict so ok there's a magician who just aren't there someone who agrees that ok here that i just want
4:40 am
to get them in this is live on on you tube tom says wouldn't killer robots desensitize humans to the already atrocious acts that they would be committing so picking up on your point there but on the other side alex this person says having killer robots do the fighting would keep soldiers and police officers out of harm's way alex. so what i was going to point out is that emotionally i were kind of want to agree with what else you're saying but if you look historically as we've injected more and more technology into warfare the levels of casualties and violence and incidents of worker has actually gone down i mean at least that's according to what steven pinker writes about and you know angels in the greater nature and you know we don't know enough necessarily about ai to think to be sure that it will be worse to have them better and i'll give a specific example i mean if there was a way to codify. not to kill civilians or to recognize children very clearly how does
4:41 am
a much better job of this kind of stuff over time in the heat of battle and it also doesn't get tired or snappy you're angry it doesn't take drugs it isn't drunk you know it won't make the kind of human errors so i'm kind of on the fence both ways which i like that better counter and also contact mercy ican consecrates you with with you know continuous humanitarian act than ever because you compare it to have mercy could you do an algorithm that was a masterful algorithm and what about the secular values no sexual violence in the film neither so absolute i mean as horrendous things humans will just there's absolutely no doubt about that humans are entirely not to be fallible and there's terrible things being done and i wouldn't. by any stretch of the imagination try to mitigate that but we also have to consider the fact that humans can also do a positive things good things this empathy their compassion their ways of acting human relationships your human relations that i think are important to or.
4:42 am
not do away with for the sake of technology i don't think you can you can code. you can call it a loss. rules or ethical guidelines into machinery in some way and some form or another but that relies on some sort of quantification of what you think is good and what is bad and everything that you cannot mathematically quantify i.e. program into a system or code then kind of falls by the wayside pull out and i think there are ways that you know i do think that there are ways that we can find there's a balance both of these concerns to use the technology in ways that reduces the incontinence and reduce the risk to soldiers but also hold on to our humanity you know one of the things that people mix up a lot of times is the value of physical robots and giving soldiers or police officers more standoff from threats and then atlanta missed weapons that would make their own decisions and i don't like the term killer robots and i think it mixes up
4:43 am
all of these important differences among the technology. if you could increase the physical distance so people are not harm's way and then have to make a decision in the moment do i shoot right now to defend muscles that could reduce harm in warfare and would be a good thing and there might be other things we could use a on to make factual decisions is this person holding a rifle or are there holding a rate and we can do that we can do that was a to that i who was ok we probably still want to find ways to use this that we will hold on to our humanity that we don't get to a place where humans no longer care about what happens in war i think that would be terrible it's a part sounds like you're saying there is a middle ground here there is a way to make this work but i bring john tweet in here he says lethal automated weapon systems are problematic because it's uncertain that their automated intelligence algorithms are capable of meeting the international humanitarian law requirements and so alex actually give this one to you because right now we have
4:44 am
state actors who don't meet international human he managed requirements what is it about these robots that means they might be different is there a way to program them so that they do. the fear you could hold them to meet any requirement is ok said if it can be reduced to mathematics of some sort a code of conduct then you can program to meet that code of conduct though there will always be edge cases because the world is very messy but at the same time it certainly is easier to encode that type of thing in you know in the computer code that it is to figure out how it works in our brains at this point but one other point to make around this is that. whether we like it or not we're going to have to fund a lot of research around this even if we have banned it because we're going to have to have the capability for countermeasures should someone else use it or just to be ability to deal with it in case it gets out of pandora's box i just want a lightning round in the sixty seconds we have left in ten years time will we have
4:45 am
killer i want. someone's going to build them someone won't care about international humanitarian law whether it's terrorists or right you know rogue acting like for show assad was terrorizing civilians like someone will become a stand sometimes want to do it right now ok when we have them. we probably somebody will probably built them but i would really wish that we have some sort of robust international legal framework or some sort of norm established that they use them for the whole actions. wrestling with the ethical conversation make up sarah received here says she doesn't think there's a willingness by governments to ban the use of ai robots and it would be the equivalent of governments turning in their guns and promoting world peace thanks for watching the stream you'll find plenty come myself online i still see that site .

5:50 am
meanwhile has dismissed any talks with washington to try to resolve the crisis from tehran here is. the day after the united states reimposed nuclear sanctions against iran the foreign minister of another sanctioned country sat down with leaders into iran. north korea's foreign minister really young ho met iranian leaders in an effort to improve ties the timing of this visit is likely no coincidence iran wants america to know it has friends everywhere. in a televised interview on monday night iran's president admonished america praised his european allies and asked his people for a little more time to fix the country's economy. that if. we need more solidarity we should be more united i'm telling my dear people god willing with your help we will get through this problem american economic pressure has been destructive for iran but officials and civilians alike say mismanagement
5:51 am
by its own leaders made iran's economy more vulnerable it's about time you start first of all sanctions will be imposed the harder the station will be for the people no one is satisfied. i'm so worried about my life future country and as a young girl i'm worried about my job there are no job opportunities and i'm afraid of losing my job as sanctions took effect on tuesday so too did new fiscal policy to try and save the falling value of iranian currency government subsidized american dollars meant to help import foreign goods will no longer be as easily available the system was open to abuse by people who would buy low and sell high to make quick cash instead of importing food medicine car parts and other necessities iran is also allowing people to open u.s. dollar accounts and earn interest in the hopes of halting mass capital flight that
5:52 am
according to the islamist parliament research center has seen fifty nine billion dollars drained from the economy in the last two years the latest comments by the european foreign policy chief perhaps give iranians a reason to be optimistic. we in the european union. they did our blocking said it you're very much up to date. with this this is a legislation the european union has in place to protect european businesses from the effect of secondary sanctions of sanctions that u.s. imposes outside of its territory at home the president is under pressure to make something good happen later this month he's expected to appear in parliament where m.p.'s are likely to grill him about the economy and on wednesday parliament plans to impeach his minister of labor in a no confidence vote over high unemployment scattered economic protests across the country signal growing public discontent with economic conditions but the worst is
5:53 am
yet to come in november more u.s. sanctions will go into effect this time striking at the very heart of iran's biggest source of revenue oil and gas. ron well donald trump took to his favorite medium twitter to talk about the sanctions he wrote that they were the most biting ever imposed and he warned anyone doing business with iran will not be doing business with the united states he added i am asking for world peace nothing less while political gain joins us live now from the u.s. state department and patty you've been at the state department briefing obviously iran featured quite highly what was said. well of course the question becomes then how does one go about achieving world peace at least when it comes to iran what i asked her new or at the state department spokeswoman is exactly how do you expect any country to negotiate when you are in essence asking them to give up their entire foreign policy to negotiate basically everything they
5:54 am
do around the globe and she answered by saying well we're not alone other people would like to see iran not pursue these activities but in this it's i think very important to point out that the u.s. is very much alone in this and when the president says these are the most biting sanctions ever that is simply not true the sentients put in place before the nuclear accord was reached those were much tougher because they involved basically the entire world that is not the case here this is the united states saying to its allies to its enemies you need the u.s. more than you need iran and many companies are saying yes that's true and they're backing away from iran but here's the key thing the u.s. is counting on the u.s. dollar basically the world currency is paid to the u.s. dollar and most of the financial transactions go through new york city so the president is thinking by having that power he can basically stop the world from doing business with iran it doesn't have to stay that way there can be other beckon isms put in place where other currencies can be used and we are seeing every
5:55 am
indication that countries including the european union wants to stay in the deal they have done that very unusual statement where they're trying to protect their companies so we are seeing an impact there have been major companies that have said we're going to pull out of red we just don't know what's going to happen the other big factor here is how well is the treasury department actually going to monitor this especially if they don't have that access to the new york markets it's unclear exactly how tough they are going to be on these companies that do business with iran so the president is talking tough he is making false statements once again but they could be biting they will have an impact but it's not going to be anything like it was when basically the u.n. security council. these resolutions back these sanctions this is the united states banking that it is still the most powerful and pivotable economy in the world and i think we're going to have to wait and see if it turns out to be that absolutely pedicle him with the latest from the state department thank you and of course one of the countries that will continue trading with iran china president rouhani
5:56 am
rouhani made a point of emphasizing iran's close links with china in his televised interview on monday it row brown has reaction now from beijing china is very important to iran's economy china is now currently iran's biggest trading partner trade between these two grew in fact by more than eight percent in two thousand and seventeen china buys more crude oil from iran than any other country something like eight hundred thousand barrels a day and those figures really tell you how china provides such an important economic artery to iran the question hour is what will the united states do to china once it begins to sanction iranian oil on november the fourth will it penalize china china has various ways i think of getting round sanctions it can use banks that only deal in the chinese currency rather than the u.s.
5:57 am
dollar that's one way but as we've seen in the past the united states has been quite prepared to go after chinese companies that are violated sanctions against iran the giant chinese telecommunications company zed t. is a case in point it was heavily fined by the united states and is still recovering from that fine iran of course is important to china for other reasons geo political reasons china sees iran as playing a pivotal role in its one build one road project this is china's plan to increase its economic influence not just in central asia but also the middle east. well as for the u.s. threats the european union is encouraging them back and tries to continue doing business in iran many lot larger companies though including the french energy producer total and the car manufacturer renault have already suspended investment plans as they reach eighty reports though from shutter who some smaller businesses

iran. we have tried to value this risk. and the house more people are too small company to. cost more so we're exiting iran so we go on with small companies like this one won't appear on president trump sanctions radar but they believe the european commission won't be able to defend them they know who they're taking a risk. it's a risk the big multinational companies in france dare not take companies such as total and purges citron have too much to lose the same applies right across the european union through a treat from doing business in iran could turn into a rout the idea over here is basically to suffocate the economy and to strangle its financial system so i'm not going to allow for anything that is going to enable iran to be able to enjoy

6:01 am
paul is here with that story. but first columbia's new president has been sworn in but that even duke is the youngest colombia leader ever to be elected in a popular vote if this is a number of challenges including shoring up an increasingly shaky peace process the fusing tensions with venezuela and curbing cocaine production. let's go live to mind who is in a boat but so the new leader has quite a lot to to do what will his biggest his primary focus and be the. role right as you mentioned there are so many different challenges that the new president is going to be facing not least of which is the issue of illicit cultivation that has skyrocketed in the last few years coincidentally around the
6:02 am
same time as the as the far east deal the deal between the colombian government and members of the revolutionary armed forces of colombia and what happened as a result of this is that. groups in the mountains of colombia in the territories that were previously controlled by the foreigner who have now who are now fighting each other for control of these territories this sort of opened the gates for these illicit. production to another major challenges that of venezuela it's a very complicated subject for colombia the new president is going to have to mediate this influx of venezuelan refugees that are coming in by the thousands at an almost daily basis here to colombia as well as the international relations between the two countries. but at this point it really does seem like all of these issues are interconnected and and following today looks like it's going to be
6:03 am
a lot on the new president's plate. and i know i mean we've been talking about how he's the youngest president elected by a popular vote what does it do to people's expectations of him do you think a particularly high. i think it that it's a mixed bag especially if you take into consideration where we are now which is a it's an opposition rally this is this is a rally put together by supporters of the person who lost the election of. last to do gain that runoff election people are telling us here is that they're not . necessarily pessimistic they're actually optimistic about about the potential that this new administration could bring what they want is to make sure that he makes good on the promise of the the current peace deal and he makes good on the promise to bring justice to assassinations of civil rights leaders of civil society leaders given the fact that there's been a rise in these assassinations over the last few years. and republic with the
6:04 am
latest for a say in the book thank you. now the diplomatic dispute between saudi arabia and canada over human rights deepening on monday saudi arabia froze all new business with canada and education agreements the immediate losers will be the more than fifteen thousand saudis who are studying in canada they've been ordered to leave along with their families now going home could get more difficult though that's because saudi arabia's national carrier says it's canceling its four weekly return flights between jeddah and toronto it's unclear how the saudi ban on new trade with canada will affect existing trade worth about four billion dollars mainly oil from saudi arabia with vehicles and defense equipment go india other way there's also a big question mark over a thirteen billion dollar defense contract that was signed back in two thousand and fourteen under which canada is to supply nine hundred armored vehicles to saudi
6:05 am
arabia but saudi arabia is only canada's twentieth biggest trading partner and with a gross domestic product of more than one and a half trillion dollars for canada and almost seven hundred billion for saudi arabia well the loss of trade would make too much of a dent in either economy well it's to get more detail on this let's cross live now to kristen salumi she is in toronto for a so christine good to see you first of all what's the fallout in canada there where you are right now what are you hearing. from the canadian government is not backing down from the statements that caused this controversy a tweet from foreign minister minister chrystia freeland essentially calling for the release of two female activists who were arrested without charge without explanation they are continue to call for their release and say that canada will always stand up for human rights women's rights and free expression to put this in
6:06 am
perspective one of those women samara is the sister of ray for down. who is an activist also in prison and saudi arabia whose wife is now a canadian citizen so canadians feel personally connected to this issue and in fact in the past have been very critical of the canadian government's dealings with the saudis selling their military equipment there been calls from the left here for the government to get rid of those contracts because of concerns about human rights so for the most part the government is not backing down but we are starting to hear from some critics who say that perhaps the timing of the statement and the method of the statement wasn't true and of course as any financial implications were that criticism could increase yeah and also there's been surprise at the saudi reaction people still trying to figure out if it was calculated or a bit of a knee jerk reaction to the statements made by canada but ultimately a lot of other countries are now hoping that the two with the escalate these
6:07 am
tensions what is what are the potential way. ways out for the two nations. while absolutely and human rights activists here in canada are saying that this is the time for the world to rally behind canada and show support for these issues and show support for the activists in saudi arabia if they were hoping to get that support from the united states however they haven't gotten it the state department issued a what many consider to be a very lukewarm statement that essentially calls both countries allies asked the saudis to respect due process but today when pressed about it a state department spokesperson basically said it's for the two countries to work out so reportedly canada is now working the back channels quietly talking to other allies in the hopes of making some progress on the ask awaiting this tense situation. with the latest from toronto christiane thank you meanwhile below is the
6:08 am
director of gold matters which provides analysis and journalism from the gulf states he says the timing of saudi arabia's action is curious. canada in the past as the united kingdom as america have frequently made criticisms of the saudi human rights record which is abysmal so from the saudi perspective it's almost less a measure say how dare you criticize us it's quite an extraordinary. way in which is a unfolded very quickly in very high handed improved three manner for me it has all the markings of mountains all monster rather brash and rather arrogant handling of pretty much all of saudi arabia's foreign affairs he's not very skillful at this and i think many canadians and indeed the canadian government are just perplexed at
6:09 am
why this is a rock did so quickly and in the manner in which the saudis have have really gone after the candidate the fact that the saudis are saying they will interfere in canadian domestic affairs if the canadians don't stop criticizing human rights on the human rights issue that too is it's laughable and i think it makes mountains on mon and the saudis looks look a bit of a fool on the international stage they shouldn't to pick this fight it's all that they've chosen to do it now why they've done it perhaps they thought they could send a message they go after canada and then other countries cross who toned down their criticism it's not going to happen rescue teams in indonesia have yet to make it to some parts of long island where the search goes on for survivors of sunday's earthquake one person was found alive on tuesday that's two days after the disaster but at least one hundred five people are known to have died steadfast and reports now from payment on long island. behind long books pristine

. i just got back from this and my impression is that this government is behaving in a way that bangladeshi governments are very used to behaving in terms of this and they just see people shouting dissent even though they're younger and what they're protesting in way beyond any kind of party political issue they haven't been able to show anything other than the usual way you are responding which has been a lot before. it all began ten days ago after a speeding bus killed two teenagers in late july shooting demonstrators took to the streets calling for tougher law enforcement of bangladeshi road traffic the government says it's going to introduce the death penalty for some road traffic accidents. human rights groups have weighed in as the government crackdown has spread to arresting journalists show hill islam a photographer who was arrested sunday after appearing on al-jazeera and

of trafficking andrew thomas reports now from new delhi. these are some of the girls rescued from or police say was forced prostitution their home in northern india had to be in a charitable shelter for children without stable families but last year its owners lost their license the shelter should have closed it didn't instead say police its owners kept girls captive renting them out for sex. we conducted raids at three or four places in two hours in rescue nearly twenty four girls and we are still looking for fifteen more children. police found out about what was going on when one girl escaped she ran to a nearby police station and described how the woman running the home kept children captive she used to say that they would kill us she used to threaten us she took children to the office once and told us to hit the policeman our media if they came
6:20 am
. children being forced into prostitution is relatively common in india the government's national commission for the protection of child rights says care homes often hide it about a quarter of a million children live in one of seven thousand of them of which a fish are unregistered with little official oversight when such a balance is exposed the associated criminal cases are often poorly prosecuted first of all investigations are not done in the manner that really standish the case in the scrutiny of the court most of the cases are not able to stand and then second thing in their time in the case is so with mr. there is no proof it is everything gets lost by the time comes to a final. nationwide protests about women's safety a growing issue of children safety is increasingly wrapped up in those place here a keen to show that they are exposing and ending child sexual abuse but the truth in this case is that they got lucky one girl escaped advocates for children the
6:21 am
authorities need to be much more active in finding and then hopefully prosecuting those who exploit children one rescue does little to address a chronic nationwide problem under thomas al-jazeera. former e m salim is a senior women's rights campaigner for amnesty international india she joins us now via skype from bangalore madame thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera i mean that report by andrew thomas paints a very bleak picture and really shows how vulnerable a lot of these children mainly girls but children are in in these homes as part of your your role at amnesty international as the woman rights campaigner there you've investigated looked into some of these homes the paint us a picture of what they're like and how rare or not rare you think a case like the one that's just emerged days. this is not an isolated gives so
6:22 am
if you've been following media and other reports that have been coming in from was a for poor which is a district in bihar there was an audit done which found that and it will be found it was only conducted in one hundred indentured to homes in the district it found that there were scores of girls in a particular children's shelter home which was sponsored by the government run by an ngo they will sexually harassed and and they were raped and the news only came out because it was there was an audit done maybe for the first time ever so this is not something that is not normal to us it is not something that comes as a surprise also if i may add a child to holmes in general those that are sponsored by the government run by n.g.o.s that i'm not very safe spaces really there was a there was an answer that was put out by the ministry that looks after women and child development in india there was a question on. a shelter
6:23 am
a particular shelter home scheme call this what are grad or a shelter home for women in difficult circumstances and the question raised to the minute she would have that ever had they ever noted cases of sexual harassment in these five hundred fifty nine homes in the on third simply was madden. so you have that best to tell you a lot about the state of the safety and security of the inmates in the shoulder who is. so i mean in this particular case the case came to light because one of the girls managed to escape and went to the police station and i guess you know it has to be said she was believed and taken seriously in the case was investigated what else needs to happen to make sure that the police can act more quickly when they get. tip offs like this and i guess also to educate in a struct the local communities which would always be the first people that might notice that something isn't quite right. i think it's extremely important the
6:24 am
fact the fact here that they enjoyed life and had been ganser last year and it still continued to house these girls and it still continue to run that says a lot about how much really we cared about women and children what a terrific so that should have been that should be immediately investigated who are these people who you know took of took the life of me and then what follow up action was done and yes you're seeing a bystander action of extreme important especially when we're talking about children who come from my delayed community of children who come from a difficult circumstances so. i mean at a personal level i would suggest that if there is any physician if people do think that there is anything suspicious happening within. a compound which they should report that they should absolutely take that first step and report because these are children and girls and young women what a curious kind it is out of sponsibility also as it's wonderful for them but if we
6:25 am

6:45 am
what it can be well this is my he's one of the brains behind it when people think theater they think four walls i think velvet seats they possibly even think popcorn during the intermission but what we have here is something completely new completely different is that what this festival was all about the evolution of theater you think yeah i mean what is really exciting for us is breaking down the the long standing barrier between the audience and the performer we'd like people to feel inspired to play for themselves and to really believe in themselves as a bit performer a bit of audience but everything you know we were kind of challenging this notion that there should be some people who are the genius amazing people who should everyone else should watch you know more about everyone being a part of a creative process that we can all you know joyfully share with each other i think is a round of applause and i think over here. a

6:50 am
sanctions against iran the foreign minister of another sanctioned country sat down with leaders into iran. north korea's foreign minister really young ho met iranian leaders in an effort to improve ties the timing of this visit is likely no coincidence iran wants america to know it has friends everywhere. in a televised interview on monday night iran's president admonished america praised his european allies and asked his people for a little more time to fix the country's economy. that if. we need more solidarity we should be more united i'm telling my dear people god willing with your help we will get through this problem american economic pressure has been destructive for iran but officials and civilians alike say mismanagement by its own leaders made iran's economy more vulnerable it's about time you start
6:51 am
first of all sanctions will be imposed the harder the station will be for the people no one is satisfied. i'm so worried about my life future country and as a young girl i'm worried about my job there are no job opportunities and i'm afraid of losing my job as sanctions took effect on tuesday so too did new fiscal policy to try and save the falling value of iranian currency government subsidized american dollars meant to help import foreign goods will no longer be as easily available the system was open to abuse by people who would buy low and sell high to make quick cash instead of importing food medicine car parts and other necessities iran is also allowing people to open u.s. dollar accounts and earn interest in the hopes of halting mass capital flight that according to the islamic parliament research center has seen fifty nine billion dollars drained from the economy in the last two years the latest comments by the
6:52 am
european foreign policy chief perhaps give iranians a reason to be optimistic. we in the european union are bait it our blocking said it your very much up to date. with this this is a legislation the european union has in place to protect european businesses from the effect of secondary sanctions of sanctions that u.s. imposes outside of its territory at home the president is under pressure to make something good happen later this month he's expected to appear in parliament where m.p.'s are likely to grill him about the economy and on wednesday parliament plans to impeach his minister of labor in a no confidence vote over high unemployment scattered economic protests across the country signal growing public discontent with economic conditions but the worst is yet to come in november more u.s. sanctions will go into effect this time striking at the very heart of iran's biggest source of revenue oil and gas. ron let's get more now on what
6:53 am
donald trump has been saying about the sanctions he wrote on twitter that they were the most biting ever imposed but he warned anyone doing business with iran will not be doing business with the united states adding i am asking for world peace nothing less well despite the threats the european union is encouraging member countries to continue to do business in iran but the u.s. is counting on the power of its dollar to keep companies in line as equal when explains from washington d.c. . the u.s. plan when it comes to iran hurt the economy hurt the people forced the government to agree to change much of its foreign policy the policy is not regime change but we definitely want to put maximum pressure on the government and it's not just to come back to discuss fixing a deal that's basically not fixable dealing with the nuclear weapons aspect we want to see a much broader retreat by iran from their support for international terrorism their
6:54 am
belligerent military activity in the middle east and their ballistic missile nuclear related programs all things around is unlikely to agree to still as the partners in the nuclear deal are urging dialogue we really just encouraging united states to start talking to. iran in order to be able to find a route forward the european union is trying to protect its companies taking the unusual step of issuing a blocking statement that says european companies should ignore u.s. sanctions but still car companies drug manufacturers and many other big names are leaving iran the reason if a company does business in the united states and then chooses to do business in iran well the u.s. government can basically cut them out of the u.s. market that is a much more important economic one government officials here say they will be watching closely and they plan to aggressively enforce the sanctions that have been put in place. still the u.s.
6:55 am
is going this alone unlike last time the other major economies like china are vowing to continue to do business with iran and even though they technically will not be able to use the u.s. dollar the world's currency former state department official jarrett block says they will find a way to work around that and that will hurt the u.s. in the long term the world's banking system is like a sewer and all of the plumbing runs to new york there's new laws of physics there's new laws that says that has to be true it's just the way things have developed since world war two right now you. the e.u. which is their economy is as large as ours you've got china growing to the point that they will soon be larger than us and if we abuse the power that we get from that central role if we could precisely apply sanctions without taking into account the national security concerns of our closest allies and partners we're going to lose that position. the target ministration is the power of the u.s. dollars key to economic growth the world around hoping that by the u.s.
6:56 am
going it alone that will be the case. washington. president has been sworn in. even to pay is the youngest colombian leader ever to be elected in a popular vote if this is a number of challenges shoring up an increasingly shaky peace process with the fog the fusing tensions with venezuela and curbing cocaine production. was at the inauguration. columbia's new president evo duke is certainly being faced with a number of challenges as he begins his administration not least of which is the increase a sharp increase in cultivation of illicit crops in some of the most rural parts of colombia that happened somewhere around three years ago coinciding with the signing
6:57 am
of a historic the seal between the colombian government and the revolutionary armed forces of colombia otherwise known as the feyerick so a lot of these cold divisions are happening in territories that are outside of the control of the colombian government outside of the jurisdiction of the colombian military and the euro but there are new armed groups some are dissenters from the far others or new groups that are opposed to the colombian government who are fighting for control of these territories all of that is sort of opened the gates for the sharp increase in alissa production of cocoa which is the raw ingredients in the production of cocaine another major challenge for president is going to be mediating that crisis that's going on that ongoing crisis in venezuela and the influx of thousands of venezuelan refugees that are coming into colombia on a near daily basis and and then trying to figure out what the diplomatic relationship with with venezuela is going to be we know for example that president who has not has decided not to appoint an ambassador to venezuela signaling that
6:58 am
the relationship between the two countries is practically nonexistent one of the other challenges the new president faces of course is bridging that political and ideological divide that occurs here in colombia but the mood today during a digression is festive i think people here in colombia are optimistic tense but optimistic. the diplomatic dispute between saudi arabia and canada over human rights is deepening on monday saudi arabia froze all new business with canada as well as education agreements the media loses then will be the more than fifteen thousand saudis that are studying in canada they've been ordered to leave along with their families going home. though could get more difficult saudi arabia's national carrier says it's canceling its four weekly return flights between jeddah and toronto it's unclear how the saudi ban on new trade with canada will affect the existing trade worth about four billion dollars mainly oil from saudi arabia with
6:59 am
vehicles and the fence equipment also going the other way there is also a big question mark over a thirteen billion dollar defense contract that was signed in two thousand and fourteen under which canada is to supply nine hundred armored vehicles to saudi arabia but saudi arabia is only canada's twentieth biggest trading partner and with a gross domestic product of more than one and a half trillion dollars for canada and almost seven hundred billion for saudi arabia the loss of trade wouldn't make too much of a dent for either economy but below is the director of gulf matters which provides analysis and journalism from the gulf states he says the timing of saudi arabia's action is curious. canada in the past as the united kingdom as america have frequently made criticisms of the saudi human rights record which is abysmal so from the saudi perspective it's almost less
7:00 am
a measure say how dare you criticize us it's quite an extraordinary. way in which is a unfolded very quickly in very high handed and predatory manner for me it has all the markings of mountains all monster rather brash and rather arrogant handling of pretty much all of saudi arabia's foreign affairs he's not very skillful at this and i think many canadians and indeed the canadian government are just perplexed at why this is a rock did so quickly and in the manner in which the saudis have have really gone after the candidate the fact that the saudis are saying they will interfere in canadian domestic affairs if the canadians don't stop criticizing human rights on the human rights issue that too is it's laughable and i think it makes mountains on mon and the saudis looks look a bit of a fool on the international stage they shouldn't
7:01 am
a pick this fight it's all that they've chosen to do it now why they've done it perhaps they thought they could send a message they go after canada and then other countries cross who tone down their criticism it's not going to happen. still to come here and arrests are made in india after police discover a children's home where young girls were allegedly kept and sold for sex and rights groups land bangladesh a very time playing of the student led protests and the detention of journalists who've reported on the. welcome back starts in australia this time weather conditions looking fine for the most part a few showers across parts of victoria but otherwise a decent day in sydney with highs of twenty degrees celsius and as we head on through into thursday for most central easterners it's all looking fine but we've

7:51 am
by its own leaders made iran's economy more vulnerable it's about time that you. know sanctions will be imposed the harder the situation will be for the people no one is satisfied. i'm so worried about my life future country and as a young girl i'm worried about my job there are no job opportunities and i'm afraid of losing my job as sanctions took effect on tuesday so too did new fiscal policy to try and save the falling value of iranian currency. government subsidized american dollars meant to help import foreign goods will no longer be as easily available the system was open to abuse by people who would buy low and sell high to make quick cash instead of importing food medicine car parts and other necessities iran is also allowing people to open u.s. dollar accounts and earn interest in the hopes of halting mass capital flight that according to the islamic parliament research center has seen fifty nine billion
7:52 am
dollars drained from the economy in the last two years the latest comments by the european foreign policy chief perhaps give iranians a reason to be optimistic we in the european union. they did our blocking said it you're very much up to date. with this this is a legislation the european union has in place to protect european businesses from the effect of secondary sanctions of sanctions that the u.s. imposes outside of that at home the president is under pressure to make something good happen later this month he's expected to appear in parliament where m.p.'s are likely to grill him about the economy and on wednesday parliament plans to impeach his minister of labor in a no confidence vote over high unemployment scattered economic protests across the country signal growing public discontent with economic conditions but the worst is yet to come in november more u.s.
7:53 am
sanctions will go into effect this time striking at the very heart of iran's biggest source of revenue oil and gas zain zero. well let's talk to me he's the director of iranian studies at stanford university he joins us now live from stanford in california president trump said these are the toughest sanctions yet against iran is this pressure likely to force iran into agreeing some kind of new deal one that trump thinks is more favorable. well first of all i don't think these are the most biting sanctions trampas given to hyperbole i think the most biting sanctions were the ones that the international community brought with the help of the u.s. china russia and e.u. none of those countries except the u.s. have yet joined the sanctions but it is a biting sanction and it is hurting and it's hurting both the iranian economy the iranian regime and more sadly it's also heard in the iranian people i doubt it's
7:54 am
going to bring them to the negotiating table the way they brought it in goshen last time when the u.n. wrote an international consultation actually it's an important point about you make about the europeans because trump position a stern warning to anyone doing business with iran but that's likely to cause more friction with his european allies who remain committed to the original deal and have vowed to protect companies doing business with iran both e.u. has announced that turkey has announced that they're going to not abide by these sanctions china has announced that it's going to try to continue doing business russia is very busy making deals barter deals albeit deals that do not use the dollar but i still think because the economy as your report accurately reflected is in a very fraught situation any pressure on the economy is going to make the iranian
7:55 am
regime hurt even more and then also. hurt the people of iran so let's talk about the way forward if we can i mean trump says he's open to talk to the iranians but hassan rouhani has said look there be no talks with sanctions in place so where does this leave the possibility of dialogue then. well i listened to mr ronnie's talk and he said a lot of the nasty things but he also left i think the door opened to the possibility of negotiations there was a world within the word that said that if push comes to shove we will be able to we will be willing to have unconditional negotiations the problem i think with the trumpet ministrations policy is that it can go from one extreme to another we saw this in north korea we saw this in this tweets bringing wrath and fury to the iranian people and then almost overnight saying that he is willing to. negotiate
7:56 am
with them unconditionally i think the problem is that it is the whim of the president rather than a. thought through policy that one can see the logic of step by step about let me get a final thought from you we talked about the raman economy i mean what about ordinary iranians i mean they thought that the original nuclear deal would bring better economic prosperity but more sanctions as you say is going to bring it more misery for ordinary people. it is going to bring more misery to the people and i think the people are rightly blaming primarily the. corrupt economy the incompetent economy and the enormous influence that there are g.c. and the religious in the elements have on the economy so the people are pointing to the incompetent management of the economy holding common a responsible holding rowhani responsible but at the same time their lives are being lost every day of the iranian currency and has lost only eighty percent of
7:57 am
its value so every iranian that doesn't have foreign currency has virtually lost eighty percent of everything they had in life and that is a very major blow to every poor iranian that is the victim of this regime problem i think with these sanctions it is ok that it is primarily punishing the people of iraq that are the victims of us military thank you for talking to al-jazeera. well despite the threats from the u.s. the european union is encouraging member countries to do business with iran but the white house is counting on the dollar to keep companies in line to go again explains from washington. the u.s. plan when it comes to iran hurt the economy hurt the people forced the government to agree to change much of its foreign policy the policy is not regime change but we definitely want to put maximum pressure on the government and it's not just to come back to discuss fixing a deal that's basically not fixable dealing with the nuclear weapons aspect we want
7:58 am
to see a much broader retreat by iran from their support for international terrorism their belligerent military activity in the middle east and their ballistic missile nuclear related programs all things around is unlikely to agree to still as the partners in the nuclear deal are urging dialogue we really just encourage united states to start talking. in order to be able to find a route forward the european union is trying to protect its companies taking the unusual step of issuing a blocking statement that says european companies should ignore u.s. sanctions but still car companies drug manufacturers and many other big names are leaving iran the reason if a company does business in the united states and then chooses to do business in iran well the u.s. government can basically cut them out of the u.s. market that is a much more important economic one government officials here say they will be watching closely and they plan to aggressively enforce the sanctions that have been
7:59 am

as the united kingdom as america have frequently made criticisms of the saudi human rights record which is abysmal so from the saudi perspective it's almost less a measure say how dare you criticize us it's quite an extraordinary. way in which is unfolded very quickly in a very high handed and predatory manner for me it has all the markings of how this all monster rather brash and rather arrogant handling of pretty much all of saudi arabia's foreign affairs he's not very skillful at this and i think many canadians and indeed the canadian government are just perplexed at why this is a rock to a so quickly and in the manner in which the saudis have have really gone after the candidate the fact that the saudis are saying they will interfere in canadian domestic affairs if the canadians don't stop criticizing human rights on the human
8:08 am
rights issue that too is it's laughable and i think it makes mountains on mon and the saudis looks like a bit of a fool on the international stage they shouldn't to pick this fight it's all that they've chosen to do it now why they've done it perhaps they thought they could send a message they go after canada and then other countries cross who toned down their criticism it's not going to happen. well that's more still to come here in the news hour including a zimbabwean court battles dozens of opposition supporters accused of taking part in post-election violence. in georgia the breakaway region of south over there ten years after its war with russia this is a country still in the grip of a frozen conflict. and in sports wimbledon champion novak djokovic steps up preparations.

8:10 am
years old their crimes include murder and rape. the warden admits at first even staff are afraid of these young men the rehabilitation program doesn't just include learning trade skills such as cutting hair or repairing air conditioners. or they enjoy the simple pleasures of music and playing football pastimes often forbidden by eisel in their previous lives. they feel like they belong somewhere they think that once again people care about them they are transformed from a destroyed person into someone who has a life that. the attack on the regional government headquarters in erbil last month is a reminder of the challenges and limitations of any rehabilitation program the security council of the kurdistan region says one of the man arrested from
8:11 am
a suspected eisel sleeper cell involved in the attack used to be in this program so hard with him to tell you the truth they don't always change one hundred percent there is a fifty fifty chance they will change. five hundred eisel juveniles were arrested during the iraqi army's offensive to recapture the city of mosul in twenty sixteen it was jailed for what is described as terrorism related offenses most have been released and as far as the warden knows haven't committed any additional crimes but part of rehabilitation involved in bates acknowledging their crimes and accepting accountability those we spoke to denied belonging to eisele and maintained their innocence. ali is serving a five year sentence for weapons training with eisel now all of us. i'm angry there were two hundred members inside here everybody knew that they committed crimes all
8:12 am
of their sentences would have for years and they have been released why does my sentence have to be five years when these men are eventually released from detention in the kurdistan region they're worried they might find themselves behind bars again serving time for the same crime but this time they would be in a jail run by the federal government in baghdad natasha going to hell dizzy erbil. now google has removed more than a hundred applications from its up store after they were found to carry software that attacks computers it says one hundred forty five apps on google's play store were loaded with a virus that would then be stored on an droid phone device while the virus couldn't affect the phone itself they could attack a computer as windows platform once a smart phone is plugged in the virus within be able to track personal information revealing credit card numbers and pos woods let's talk to
8:13 am
a digital strategist mike st to join us live now via skype from new york mike so how damaging all these infected google play apps on just how big is the problem given the number of times they may have been downloaded. well what they're really saying is that you know it's shocking for a company as big as google it if this is actually a continuing problem because this is the first time that absent been found to be malicious when they're stalled on the phone so i think this is the bigger issue that really needs to you know it's a long hard look at an address you know especially when you look at the i'm tunes app store where it's taken take many months for an app so i actually get approved to be an absolute or versus something that can be pushed on google pretty grown through the quickly you know so they really need to have a more vetting process to take care of this issue yeah mike as you say it's not the first time that malware has appeared on the google play app store mean companies like some antec that make antivirus software have been alerting google in the past
8:14 am
to apps that contain malware yeah stuff oh yeah i mean it's a it's a growing issue and i think a company as large as the school or you know with the millions millions of dollars if they really want to take it to the next level road and become the second trillion dollar company you know this isn't an issue that they need to fix the android ecosystem it's you big now for these kind of issues to continue so it's something they need to address and make sure that it's fully fixed and even though the apps have been taken off google play the dangers that the malware could have already infected uses computers and harvest their personal data. yes that's correct i mean eleven and date and time of people are you know are very data hungry and you know the dark web is there are a lot of people who are going to malicious things but with technology out there they're trying to get your data out because you want to sell it in some you know not so friendly places you know so again companies like facebook and google and
8:15 am
everyone else really you know are taking bigger looks at their data and where it's actually going so these you know even though it's one hundred forty five apps i still think that's too. you know our data now is very precious to you know there's many things that are sharing online like our our identity our credit card history everything else so look for even up to one hundred forty five apps or is this they can actually use or that type of data to me that's too many so mike if you haven't understood device and a windows p.c. how can we protect ourselves against this malware what do we need to do i think what you need to do as a consumer and as a user of the global web is really read the comments before you download and make sure that nobody else who is out there has had any kind of issues or any kind of problem with that so really take the time you know even though it says it's a free app you know make sure that you are actually going through the comments
8:16 am
meticulously and saying like you know is anyone having any kind of issues or growth you know that it crashed a month phone or that someone noticed something weird happened you know so just like review sites like yelp you know guys who stores and also entering stores how extensive review are commenting systems and make sure that your option statements on syria read that section and seen does anyone else out any kind of issue that's going to be suspicious and that may harm my phone my street thank you for talking to us thank you. now funerals have been held for two house members killed by israeli tank fire in the gaza strip they were part of the al qassam brigades that's the military wing of hamas israeli army says it was retaliating offered soldiers were fired upon the un in egypt trying to mediate a long term truce between israel and hamas to end for months of violence along the israel gaza border under simmons as more from gaza. shortly after the funeral of

8:26 am
early one nine hundred eighty s. but democrats think they have a chance to win the result could offer clues to november's midterm election with john hendren joins us live now from westerville in ohio john so just talk us through why this race is so important. well there and that's right the polls have juice close in this race is important because normally we wouldn't really be talking about ohio's congressional district it's a solidly republican district tailor made for republicans it was actually redrawn by the state legislature in two thousand and eleven to become more republican donald trump won here by eleven percentage points and no democrat has won in this house race since one thousand nine hundred thirty nine with one exception and that was back in the one nine hundred eighty s. so everybody took notice when a democrat named danny o'connor came neck and neck with troy balders in the republican in recent polls the republican party didn't fail to notice that either and they have thrown a lot at this race donald trump was here on saturday giving
8:27 am
a full throated endorsement to balders and the vice president has and so has the governor of ohio and outside groups that spent millions of dollars in ads on this race even though o'connor has raised boulders and those ads were predominantly for republicans so for democrats they're looking at this not just as a trophy but also as one of the twenty three seats that they need to retake control of congress and they got a little bit of help from the republican opponent yesterday and that's because he said they didn't want he told the crowd they didn't want people representing them who were from franklin county that happens to be where danny o'connor is from it's also the county that delivers the most votes out of the seven counties in this election. these two candidates are running for a term that ends in three months time then they'll have a rematch for the next fool to it will that race be as important then. that's right it sort of a permanent campaign for the short term anyway i talked to denny o'connor earlier
8:28 am
today he said he's going to start running for that november term right after this in both of those candidates are going to have to keep up the enthusiasm that they have so far i talked to a poll worker this is obviously unscientific and said that the turnout today seemed very high that it was more like a presidential election than a special election which this one is so they have to maintain that kind of enthusiasm because even the the enthusiasm drops on one side you could actually have one candidate win tonight and another one winning in november so for democrats this would be a symbol it might also give them reason to expand their targets if they win tonight they might be looking at more seats in trump territory and they just won another special election deep in the trunk territory of western pennsylvania so they're going to be looking at this is one of those twenty three seats but also is something of a trophy but even if they lose by two or three percentage points it marks a kind of victory for the democrats here because they usually lose by much wider margins here daryn john thank you now they asked

a region on the edge of europe. i don't think. ten years on buildings have been repaired but the pain of loss is still felt that. it had so much she was my only child. so life is very hard to miss out. the bombing by russia of an apartment complex in the georgian town of gori claimed fourteen lives among them. only daughter forty three year old my newspaper reports show her watching over her daughter's body in the rubble. nothing was a chipped they just abused us our nate there but it is also our to me that the end of. a war that destroyed families and divided communities was driven she says not

as something that would engender a lot of anger in saudi society is not the case absolutely this is an unprecedented unrelenting crackdown on all forms of dissent and criticism in the country now the difference this time is that it's highly unusual for the saudi authorities to one actually detain the activists and at the same time take credit for their reforms in previous times of course they've arrested or harassed and intimidated activists but never in a manner in which they the it was a concerted campaign of arrests before it was always in relation to something so the women defied the driving ban so they were arrested so it was sudden acts that led to them back she being arrested this time around they were rounded up and arrested from the minute in the middle of the night from their homes in such a concerted a way with a smear campaign something we've not seen before eva such as our it is a launching of a social media campaign to malign the reputation within site arabia and at the same
9:26 am
time trying to make sure that they have a p.r. savvy campaign in order to ensure that the saudi crown prince mohammed bin someone is able to take full credit for the reforms that these women have been championing for years. let me ask you does this does this you know crack down and also this rift now with canada does this have a risk at all of backfiring on crown prince mohammed bin some from either inside or outside the king. well to me the truth i mean how can it not backfired on him unfortunately this is. an almost irrational action i mean it's just an emotional impulse and he acted on it i don't think that the makes his case any better domestically or internationally for what he says you know he's trying to you know to to kingdom that basically on the cusp of modernization or that i don't
9:27 am
think that modernization comes by arresting woman or any civil society activists what anybody for that matter so i really doubt that this is going to help the saudi cause at all so tom does the fact that canada granted citizenship in early july to an soft hi there who is the wife of jailed saudi blogger and activist that i have by the way does that play into this i mean how angry was saudi arabia about that and has that added you know fuel to this fire you know that emerged because of the tweet. well i think the citizenship was granted earlier this year but the asylum was given back in two thousand and fifteen and drive a diet he was imprisoned in saudi arabia in two thousand and twelve so canada you know way has something to to justify why they should be concerned about what's going on in saudi arabia however i think probably the medium in which and the way
9:28 am
in which they reacted was very unfortunate i think this is there to two stories here one is the crackdown within saudi arabia and the second is a lesson to all that you cannot really conduct foreign policy based on tweets and when they express their concerns of course i don't think that came directly from freedom and but it has been she has she she got implicated in it and the uni of warre is the way it escalated so quickly over the last few days and i think again the saudi. totally irrational response is a series of responses that followed that tweet made the situation much worse and in these circumstances i think it will very quickly grow beyond that initial family problem and the sister in law of. the day we are often if we could just step back for a minute because our viewers are hearing a lot of names they may not be familiar with saudi human rights activists both
9:29 am
female and male who have been detained the past few months let's talk specifically for a moment about somebody by the way she is the person who was mentioned by name in that tweet by the canadian embassy in saudi arabia let's talk for a moment about somebody by the way of course she's known for being a very prominent human rights activist herself a recipient of u.s. state department award in two thousand and twelve formerly married to a double care very prominent rights lawyer saudi arabia has been jailed sister of the week very prominent blogger who is in jail in saudi arabia why would she be targeted now. that's a question that's actually been on many people's minds who actually know someone by the way summer is a prominent women's rights activist not as you say not just awarded but for the very activism that she's campaigned on inside reveals she herself was a victim of the abusive male guardianship system she forward in the courts to remove the guardianship from her father to her brother she also sued the government in a number of occasions because of just going to policies like for instance the driving
9:30 am
ban so she sued the government in trying to ensure that because they didn't give her driver's license back some years ago she also through the government for not allowing her to stand in the midst because elections a fight that they later won because in part of these actions now summer has actually gone through the quiet there was an intimidation campaign by the authorities against women's rights activists and they were clearly concerned by that some of them may still be speaking to the media around the time of the driving ban being lifted because that was a time when international journalists were flying into saudi arabia to cover the this reform and so a lot of these women were arrested but some are wasn't and why she's been arrested now is unclear but she is not the only one who's been arrested two other women have also been arrested and it seems as if they're trying to get rid of all vestiges of activists within the who may have the potential to speak out or you know just make it very clear that you simply even for your previous activism you cannot stay within the country without being prosecuted and just to be aware of summer but that
9:31 am
we actually had a travel ban on her before she was actually arrested and this is been going on for some time now i'm a u.s. leadership you know has been close for decades with saudi arabia but you know they have been critical in the past at least somewhat of human rights policies in saudi arabia that seems to have stopped with the trumpet ministration is the fact that the u.s. is no longer being vocal when it comes to perceived rights abuses in saudi arabia is that emboldening the saudi regime well it's a. unfortunately yes the white house has basically absconded on the issue of protecting democracy and human rights around the world and including in the gulf and saudi arabia is one of those states which washington basically tries always to avoid. to criticize but the last year's state department report on human rights
9:32 am
mentioned issues of spouses and things like that and saudi arabia but yes i under that hand say that maybe the current so did leadership is that this is a really waiting for the trumpet a musician to approve or disapprove of what they're trying to do they have a program they have a program of modernization all that and they say they think that all of this is going to affect their modernization efforts which is which is definitely wrong so i doubt that the time but musician whatever of london musician does or because the size or does not get the size i think the saudi leadership will continue to do whatever it wants to do to gun human rights and democracy to do the heavy development assault on critics of the canadian prime minister justin trudeau have have charged that he has not been strong enough in the past of his criticism of saudi arabia and i say the fact that he is allowing arms deals to saudi arabia that were negotiated before his tenure to go through that that shouldn't happen and some
9:33 am
have said that this criticism that has come up in the last few days is really just essentially a p.r. move to deflect criticism that he's been receiving because of the arms deal what do you say to all that is there merit to that. well canada like sweden and others can and even countries have declared the human rights and feminist agenda very much central to their foreign policy and they've been very proud of this the go around the world speaking about this policy and i think that has raised expectations particularly within human rights corners advocates. southern countries mostly that they expect a stronger stand from canada and those countries that. are fast developing a lobby in that direction now that hasn't been coming forthcoming and of course the real disappointment has been around yemen the whole intervention in yemen that
9:34 am
attracted very little criticism from those countries that actress's them and from the americans as well know this i go back to the point that i think it's been an fortunate incidence and had the saudis chosen not to respond to the tweet probably nobody would have noticed it over if you would have noticed that i don't think conducting foreign policy affecting changes. is going to be code on twitter i think the canadians should and could have written to the saudis sean more support and there may or may be behind the scenes they're doing all this and the saudis are not responding but there are other channels for for to press to place pressure on the saudis at this very important critical time given their agenda of modernization and given their very broad interventions around the middle east so that they do need critical friends and i think canada could be one of those friends that chose
9:35 am
the saudi the right way ok to leave but it has to be done in a way that the saudis feel appropriate and not insulting rotton amnesty international has called for the international community to speak out against rights abuses rights abuses in saudi arabia can we expect to be hearing more from countries specifically the u.k. and france at this time. if the u.k. france and other e.u. states other countries allies decide to review and care about human rights care about women's rights as they supposed to according to their charters and within their own laws they should be standing up and declaring their support for what canada has said and urging the release all of these activists inside rebiya the fact that they have been silent so far is deafening the silence is absolutely deafening and it sort of leaves the side raving authorities much more emboldened because what that's what they really doing is they're trying to silence all of their critics not just internally but externally by reacting so harshly and so
9:36 am
aggressively against the canadian authorities they want to make it clear these are the consequences of what it means when you criticize us but the u.k. france and others if they stood up at the same time and said no in these cases you can't call simply a criticizing you simply urging you to release some activists as unlawful interference then you know that would then show that he has to continue trading with many countries and if all of these countries stood up and said something they would then be pushed they would be required to actually respond in a more adequate munna but right now they're getting away with the idea that this so-called interference when it is just normal and adequate criticism that is absolutely reasonable in the circumstance they're getting away with and i'm not saudi arabia of course have been trying to burnish its image especially with the west i mean you had crown prince mohammed bin so you know take that trip to the united states really put on a charm offensive with potential investors and with government figures how does
9:37 am
something like this help that i mean we keep talking about this in the past few months even in the run up to women driving in saudi arabia finally they were granted the women to drive in the run up to that some of the most prominent activists who called for the right to drive they were arrested and there was outrage because of that i mean what is the in game here when it comes to public relations and saudi arabia and all the. well for one thing there is that is unfortunately a little ignorance of what the preserve what the what the function of public relations is i mean you have to really be always work on your image abroad but i think the underlying truth here is that the saudi leadership and many bitter ships like it consider the economic relations to be separate from political relations or political reputations around the world so i think the they could own prince baby thinks that if a strike deals enough deals with the companies and make sure that for instance you
9:38 am
know what american president is happy with how many jobs i'm helping to create in the united states maybe then they won't say anything about our human rights record but. it's very difficult to day in our day and age to really separate economics from politics or from the reputations of states this is not it's not helpful you know war and in fact only this i mean of the war in yemen is obviously not helpful yes you know what the american administration is happy because they're buying weapons to use in the war and all that but you know what killing children and women and different places by the way they're not the only one doing the killing whole bunch of others are doing the killing but it's really does not serve any purpose of public relations here so don we were just talking the economic aspect of this and i could ask you to expand on some of what i might was saying i mean saudi arabia is going to great lengths these days to tell potential investors that it is open for
9:39 am
business there is the crown prince's saudi vision twenty thirty initiative how does this help that at a time they're trying to bring investors to saudi arabia wouldn't potential investors be scared. of course they would i don't think it's helping at all i think it's another episode of shooting themselves in the foot as a result of this rush to reaction and the reliance on. facebook and twitter and so on as a form of communication the trade relations between canada and saudi arabia around maybe four billion dollars a year mostly exports to canada from saudi arabia and they have a huge program of higher degree higher education so it is going to occur and therefore education health cetera and stopping all this all of a sudden is really causing a lot of hardship to to the saudi citizens themselves first to suddenly expect
9:40 am
students to switch and look for other places where they cannot continue their studies in canada or to arsk. patients to look for alternative sources of medication and so on it's too difficult for those individuals and i think the saudis should show more concern to their own citizenship and and really react in a much more measured way which is becoming extremely difficult giving the way mom advance a man seems to have. given the rein to some of his advisers to conduct policy over or over twitter the moment they tweet is very difficult to attract they say they find it too embarrassing to say sorry even when they publish this very unfortunate image of an aircraft. flying towards toronto they are in english they apologize and that are big they did not dare to apologize
9:41 am
they just would do it now i think someone should really be taking control and if saudi arabia and muhammad is a man is serious about his modernization reform done for about i'm starting recital to i should just mention there there was an apollo. by those who issued that tweet of the of the plane the image of the plane there was an apology that was issued hours after that was generated and then. there was an admission that it was inappropriate but the texan arabic never said sorry ok but i met read a tweet but this is what i did that a big can english ok it's clearly apologized for causing the stress or thanks for clarifying you know your personal phone there talk about how he believes that saudi leadership should show greater care or in pathy to their citizens is there any way to actually gauge what saudi citizens are feeling i mean clearly people in saudi arabia are afraid to speak out because it represents if there seem to be seen
9:42 am
criticizing the government there could be severe consequences so can you actually gauge what the saudi public feels about what the government is doing right now. unfortunately you can't we have no idea really what the vast majority of side raven's really feel about what the government is doing i think there is a genuine concern of course that the saudi authorities are really cracking down on dissent but the fear now has penetrated that they cannot say anything i mean this is a saudi arabians who are prominent on social media they're like one of the biggest users of twitter in the country in the world i mean and yet you know when you look at the kind of reactions like one of what's happening with canada the vast majority of those attacking the sort of things that are happening i usually try to bots the usually done in the sudden kind of manner that suggests these are on recruits these are not regular side arabians who are showing outrage about what side really is doing and about what side rubin's allies are saying about them and so it's not
9:43 am
really clear what the side re bins are able to say or think we will never really know because the saudi authorities will not allow a polling you know won't allow for the for the outrage to really to to come out in public and if anything those who have been somewhat critical of so for instance after the arrest of the women's rights activist one woman had tweeted her support of those women who had been arrested she was arrested shortly after her friend then posted the letter to it she had prepared if she was arrested in that instance and then that friend was arrested now that friend was not not an active is she simply posted something her friend out also to do online and the previous friend was also not really a prominent activist either she just showed support for these activists so it's a very very clear you cannot not only be an activist you cannot express yourself but you also cannot show some support for these activists so they are really going out of the way to silence saudis to even a you know to prohibit them from coming out and speaking their minds and what we
9:44 am
all you really see are the twitter bots that will come out in support of the saudi government so we don't have a whole lot of time left i want to give you the last word here this is not expected to have much of an impact on canada's economy are the biggest losers you're going to be those fifteen or sixteen thousand students that potentially will have to leave canada and get education elsewhere now these saudi students. in the immediate terms i think it is this only students and patients are going to suffer most and those who don't will business holidaying travelling directly between so dear abia and canada but in the long term of this escalates further i mean there is a thirteen billion dollar deal or at least initiate a deal between sodhi and canada to provide them with vehicles and maybe this is a good reminder in a way it could it could there could be a silver lining to all this is that you can't buy your way over issues global
9:45 am
issues of human rights that have become more and more central in the way we conduct our affairs seventy is important intervention is not acceptable but increasingly human rights. there's a global agreement that you can and you should interfere and maybe make some noises or highlight issues and only in extreme cases it could justify a responsibility to protect in certain circumstances now that of course it is not going to reach that level but i think it's good that canada has spoken out it's important that other countries do the same but we should do it in a medium and in ways in the channels that are established for doing this sort of business through you know embassies and and foreign policy mechanisms all right we're going to have to leave it there we're out of time thanks so much to all our guests rotten a big time but a card and i'm out how to and thank you too for watching you can see the program

9:51 am
that they will soon be larger than us and if we abuse the power that we get from that central role if we could preciously apply sanctions without taking into account the national security concerns of our closest allies and partners we're going to lose that position. literally ministration is betting the power of the u.s. dollar is key to our economic growth all around the world around hoping that by the u.s. going it alone that will no longer be the case al-jazeera washington the us has announced the final list of chinese made products to be hit by sixteen billion dollars worth of new tariffs in fifteen days' time a twenty five percent tariff will be applied to items from electronics to chemicals and relic couldn't donald trump's now plays duties and around fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods in a growing trade war beijing is about to match washington's moves even decay has been sworn in as colombia's new president he's the youngest leader to be elected there in a popular vote to kay has promised to revise the peace accord with rebels defuse
