12:01 am
a united arab emirates prison the usa president issued the pardon to matthew had his as part of the country's national day celebrations it was back in may that hedges was arrested while researching the u.a.e. security strategy he was accused of spying on behalf of the u.k. which is an allegation he denies daniela to who appealed for clemency on behalf of her husband says you just can't wait to get him home in response to the letter from a family of mr hedges and it was doing clemency and in consideration of the historical relationship and close ties between the united arab emirates and the united kingdom his highness has decided to include mr matthew ridges among the seven hundred eighty five prisoners released following the story from london for us is paul brennan hi paul i love to say that you know all's well that ends well but this is been a real roller coaster journey for the family and diplomatically as well. it has i
12:02 am
mean six months of effective silence on the matthew has his case climaxed in a well a flurry of diplomatic activity starting last wednesday when he was sentenced to life imprisonment on these espionage charges by the court in abu dhabi provoking shock from the british foreign ministry and outrage from the hedges family then there was the turning and fro ing as to try and find some kind of compromise deal and if the timing was perfect in the sense that december second is the u.a.e. is national day and the president traditionally pardons hundreds of prisoners in the days leading up to that december second date so the if l. right into the plate of matthew hedges campaign that despite the one option being an appeal against his conviction which may or may not be successful so the appeal for clemency from the presidents instead they went down that route and it's borne fruit in the sense that this announcement this morning has meant that he is now
12:03 am
released from custody and will be on his way home in the coming hours although the foreign office are playing a cards very close to their chest as to the arrangements for his return that said though the foreign secretary jeremy hunt would like to see something like this not happen again let's have a listen circlip from the truth is that we should never got to hear and we are deeply perplexed as to how it happened but we also want to recognise that the crown prince of united emirates crown prince mohammed bin and the foreign minister abdullah bin so you'd have been working very very hard to try and resolve the situation they do recognize the importance of the strategic relationship between the u.k. and the u.a.e. they have reflected on that importance in the decision that they've made today. so essentially the two sides have agreed to disagree on what exactly matthew had his
12:04 am
was doing british insists he's just an academic conducting ph d. research the u.a.e. insists that the questions he was asking certainly fall foul of the letter of the law in the united arab emirates and there are researches that i've spoken to today in the arab world who would like to see more clarity and a little bit more compromise if you like so that the research that has taken place academic research can go ahead in this very important part of the world thank you for that update paul brennan in london really here in the studio with us it's important to note that is not just one case here these obviously a very big one an important one but you've got more that's right kemal well human rights watch is in the u.a.e. to not stop the release of matthew hedges and the exec at the executive director kathryn said how about the other political prisoners such as human rights offend oddments or who is currently serving an unjust ten year sentence while mincer is
12:05 am
a well known critic in the us government he was arrested in march last year after authorities accused him of using his social media accounts to publish false information and spread hatred and also sectarianism and honesty international is also sharing the stories of other prisoners of conscience held in the u.a.e. most of them have been detained since twenty thirteen or twenty fifteen and you did hear from the british foreign secretary jeremy hunt a few moments ago he also issued an appeal for others being held. but i think it's also a day that we should think about other people in similar situations but in different countries who are innocent being held in prison and in particular with thinking of nazanin zakari rockliffe who's coming out for three years in jail she's got a four year old daughter she's been in prison for more than half of her daughter's life and it's not just her there are other people in prison in iran as well and my
12:06 am
message to the iranian authorities is very simple get nazanin the medical treatment that she actually needs while not stones akari radcliffe is a british iranian charity worker who's being held in iran since twenty sixteen author a conviction for spying a charge that she denies now while the u.k. government is lobbying for her release and her family and rights groups are also campaigning online trying to raise awareness about her case many are using the hash tag free as me now one of the tweets i thought such so out quite a lot here whether talking about bilateral ties this uses says that the u.k. and the u.a.e. relations are very different to those of the u.k. and iran but we need the same and even more commitments to free nazneen while others are also calling on the u.k. to reconsider its bilateral ties with countries like iran and the u.a.e. and this is now really got to serve as a wake up who's the government who up until now have placed little citrate there
12:07 am
was open about any concern for human rights this is really going to change in the coming period. well send us your thoughts on the story tweet us use the hash tag aging is great or you can just simply message me directly and that he'll have it thanks for here interesting discussion on inside story a couple of days ago what does this magic matthew hedges case we were talking about tell us about the u.a.e. that sort of comparison if you like between the the glitzy glamorous side of the u.a.e. but also this judicial system which can appear quite draconian at times. he was hosting that discussion and you can find inside story as ever in the show's section at al-jazeera dot com now in the next hour the u.n. security council is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting excuse me after russia sees three ukrainian naval ships in a straight near crimea here it is on the map remember crimea was annexed by russia or over four years ago it's this area right in there and if i assume an unfortunate
12:08 am
is one of the strange things with google maps when two photos overlap and you don't actually see the bridge but that's the bridge right there where the ship is being used to block that kershaw straight and crimea to the left there just a bit of geography have a look at the pictures there the ukrainian navy says several sailors were wounded when russians opened fire in what they are calling an act of aggression ramming one of its tug boats during a very tense standoff moscow said the ships that had illegally entered its waters is the shot look at that ukraine's president petro poroshenko has said he wants to ask his parliament on monday to take action. so. martial law is introduced in order to strengthen ukraine's defense capabilities amid increasing aggression and according to international law duty cold act of aggression by the russian federation it's martial law does not mean our refusal to resolve the issue of liberating ukrainian territory by political and diplomatic means we have intentions
12:09 am
to keep at hearing to all international obligations including the minsk agreement rory chalons following this one from moscow rory petro poroshenko saying oh outlining his reasons i guess for wanting martial law one of the other takes on this from from ukraine and russia are actually. you know well his thing i mean there is obviously a time and a place for imposing martial law on a country if that country is under sustained threats which you could argue petro poroshenko does argue ukraine is at the moment and has been since the annexation of crimea however there are plenty of people inside ukraine and elsewhere who think that this is a situation that is being taken advantage of for political ends even in the darkest
12:10 am
days of two thousand and fourteen when crimea was annexed by russian troops and in the following year two thousand and fifteen when ukrainian troops were dying in the hundreds under withering bar edges of artillery of battles like. barrages of the re that came from russian armed units even then martial law was an imposed so people were asking at the moments in ukraine why with this relatively minor naval skirmish are we talking about possibly very soon to see martial law finally being imposed in ukraine and i think there are concerns that it's has various human rights and civil liberties restrictions that they don't like and they are also looking at the upcoming presidential election which is march two thousand and nineteen under martial law or you cannot hold elections so there is
12:11 am
a possibility that if martial law is imposed for sixty days although that doesn't quite reach up to the presidential election time slots it would affect the campaigning for it and people are talking about the possibility that the presidential elections might be postponed so that is concerning for a lot of people inside ukraine also in russia. the view is already the narrative is being portrayed vats this is all being done for internal political reasons in ukraine essentially it's a provocation so although the ukrainian perspective and the russians back to don't have the same kind of background to them they are buddies coming up with a similar outcome which is that this could be a concerning. course of events for ukraine to take just quickly were you said you called it relatively minor naval skirmish the fact is still you've got ships
12:12 am
ramming each other at sea which when russia and ukraine are involved i mean is there potential for this to get a whole lot worse. yeah i mean it could do it could be it depends how it's handled it is the most significant. open conflict between these two militaries since the days of two thousand and fourteen two thousand and fifteen but as i was saying in two thousand and fifteen there were much more serious ones and so. this is something that i think is militarily losing its steam russia has blocks the coast straits you do have commercial shipping that can now pass from the black sea into the sea of as of however the diplomatic ramifications of this are still pretty hot the political ramifications of it are pretty hot ukrainians looking around to see how much international support it can get for its side of this story
12:13 am
russia and ukraine i don't think have the appetite for this to flare up into a full blown military engagement between them russia is probably looking at the situation and thinking well we have made our point we have shown ukraine facts we can access under our own steam we can act unilaterally and ukraine wants to make sure that there is some sort of blowback for russia over this it's i think notable of the moments that we have not seen very much coming out of washington d.c. donald trump has made very little comments on it so in the moments the condemnation is coming from nato and it's coming from the bots the united states so far is staying pretty quiet hasn't really stepped in to back up ukraine at the moment ok
12:14 am
rory chalons in moscow thank you for that we're going to new york now on on skype. who is the executive board member of the ukrainian congress committee of america thank you for your time hopefully you could hear what rory and i would discuss and then let's pick up on that point there do you think that ukrainians will have enough support on this on this one given that as we were saying rushers well sort of made its point here. within an hour or two you had at least four european countries including the baltics and poland putting out statements of support this morning both the head of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs as well as the deputy chair of the entire ukrainian parliament were in berlin on an emergency flight and you just we just got a report about beach support a statement of support from the government of germany we are getting more and more countries to come out publicly from the united states that would be the special
12:15 am
advisor on the crane negotiations besar kurt volker putting out a statement very very early on that we've had a united states congressman we are anticipating united states senators to put out even more force or statements so the reaction has been quite one sided as far as i can tell i do not see any international organization or any other or statesman speaking in support of what russia did which should be clear was not actually in the strait but twenty three kilometers away from it so very clearly with g.p.s. responder's we can verify their e clearly this was an attack on a russian and ukrainian vessel in international waters let's talk then about the politics of this the internal ukrainian politics this idea of martial law the cynic the skeptic would say as well he was explaining that if there is martial little there are no elections they can be postponed what do you say to that. well that's this this term martial law it all relates to one term in the ukrainian constitution
12:16 am
for you on the stand that can be interpreted by different very different ways martial law refers to what happens internally in the country obviously it is a state of war that needs to be declared. in certain times to get certain mobilizations of certain units up to par and this is something that on one side people can say they can complain about what would happen theoretically intra inside the country as a result of this declaration such a martial law being imposed however at the same time there are people who are complaining for years as were you mention why wasn't this declared earlier where well in various point of fact ukraine needed to enact laws changes of law changes into the you can your constitution itself in order to meet certain western demands on the i.m.f. other it international reforms being called on by the west and over the last four years they could not do that with a formal declaration of war i believe ukraine at this point feels quite confident
12:17 am
that they have enacted anough reforms to set aside the best and at the same time they can declare a state of war which as we mentioned freezes things such as elections phrases things such as changes to the law while an ongoing state of war has been declared live but it is little that there isn't anything it's explained second because i don't want to run out of time to me put a question to you or a thought from one of our viewers a man who's watching on facebook live and who did this to put a shank i was just using martial law to save his own pants he didn't cool it when more than two hundred people were killed in dun banks in just one day double standards i guess he's pointing out. right as i mentioned at that time ukraine was both an acting massive performs on the civil side as well as fighting a war and it was something that ukraine had to be very inventive with calling that operation an anti-terrorist operation at the time trying to both fight corruption
12:18 am
on the inside as well as fight. foreign invaders so ukraine right now is actually doing things by the book according to the constitution declaring a formal state a floor and to knock ukraine for doing something as this constitution proposes is not really something that i don't think anybody is in favor of you know it should be said that this is something that the constitution calls for and there is also no statute in the ukrainian constitution about postponing election so any calls about the spawning election is very premature ok. joining us from new york thank you for your time i was just having a look at al-jazeera to come to their face and stories about ukraine this is a slight tangent but it's to really interesting out of ukraine a female fix on the frontlines you know when our journalists go into different areas where the maybe not as familiar they used fix as people on the ground who know the stories already and help us out and this is the story of one such fixer
12:19 am
kathy any model for you have twenty nine year old who helps out some of our crews there and others from b.b.c. and reuters for example just an interesting little insight into the way that we get our stories out of a place out like ukraine and that is just one in a three part series to have a look for yourself fixes i guess would be the need to call ukraine fix it down to zero dot com. and thank you for getting in touch with us with your questions and your thoughts lots of you wanting to congratulate marwan on his commentary a little bit earlier and he was very passionate about particularly our role as journalists in the jamal khashoggi story and remember if you want to follow him on twitter he's just as opinionated here in fact possibly more so with giving him a follow there in keeping in touch and if you want to send me anything at a hashtag. this is the news great if you're with us on facebook live story coming up for you know about children in afghanistan and how they are finding refuge in literature that's from our friends at al-jazeera online and then later the ocean's economy you know trillions of dollars worth of assets come from the ocean so what's
12:20 am
being done to protect them and to make the best use of them. how i'm pleased to say we have a local school some quasi weather coming in to the middle east for the time being at least well a lot of clout here still stretching its way from the gulf pushing further east was that sort brought as a very very heavy rain over the past twenty four hours or so now becoming a thing of the posix crazy pushing of its walls east inside of the regions of afghanistan could see a little bit of wet weather some snow over the higher ground of course but projects guys do come back in behind there are still a few showers having said that spilling out of turkey into syria a little bit of cloud there pushing into that western side of iraq and then you could see things clear up for a time like as we go i wanted to wed instead of the weather coming into the eastern side of the med but you come further south and here it is generally set fat
12:21 am

12:23 am
headlines are down to zero but calm and what's trending as well the latest on that new investigation in the church the case about one hundred kilometers south side of istanbul searching a couple of villages fair more on ukraine on saudi arabia the stories we've been telling you the u.a.e. releasing scott matthew edges as well have a look at the top stories that's what's trending at al-jazeera dot com this monday . mexico has promised to step up security at border crossings off the hundreds
12:24 am
of asylum seekers trying to cross into the united states. was mexican police say the group violently and illegally rushed the border on sunday u.s. border agents responded by firing tear gas mexico says it will deport those involved in this attempted crossing these just some of the thousands of central americans if they went through mexico hoping to seek asylum in the united states just quickly popping in on the maps you see you know where we're talking about this is about as far west as we can go with border crossings here it is that's the whole processing center. the u.s. customs and border protection center. i'm sorry miss san diego and that is the one which has been closed that is one of what donald trump calls the official day of the official crossings which he says should be the only places that asylum seekers are processed of course speaking of donald trump he's had something to say about
12:25 am
all of this on twitter in the past few hours here it is mexico should move the flag waving migrants many of whom a stone cold criminals back to their countries do it by plane do it by bus do it any way you want but they're not coming into the usa we will close the border permanently if need be congress fund the wall he says here's heidi castro in washington d.c. for us to she's actually just returned from the border area where you were covering that story for us and did a great job as well heidi tell us first of all about these developments i guess the fact that the asylum seekers already knew that the u.s. with donald trump was against them coming and now they definitely know the mexicans are serious. that's right and we just got numbers from the u.s. border patrol that there were some forty or so asylum seekers who did make it across the border and were then arrested after that another forty or so on the mexican side now they came from
12:26 am
a much larger group of about five hundred asylum seekers who included many mothers with young children as well as men and and younger people who started the day yesterday protesting in a peaceful march approaching the u.s. port of entry their main complaint was that the u.s. authorities were allowing only a handful of people a day to enter that official port as you mentioned that donald trump requires people to enter in order to make their asylum claim and so that led to this backlog of people living in the open air on the streets into you want to mess it go potentially having to survive there for months to wait for their turn to approach that court that port of entry so this large group of protesters marched to it to say that they should be more of people should be allowed in daily but then it quickly devolved when a few picked up rocks threw them at the u.s. side of the border. the d.h.h.s. secretary cure snelson said that some u.s.
12:27 am
agents were struck by rocks and that is when they responded by firing tear gas into the mexico side which was why did extraordinary step in u.s. history and that left these asylum seekers really many of these who were families not expecting this sort of response from the trump administration many of these were women who said that they were approaching the border hoping to in their words open donald trump's heart to their plight instead really after this violent attack having had to flee with their children saying had they known that this is what they would encounter they never would have attempted to get so close and that also leaves the many thousands more who are still in the shelter in tijuana which is a. now flowing over capacity of more than five thousand people and many of them when i was there said they were fine waiting they knew they would suffer through this however they wanted to approach legally and orderly and they condemn that this group made an attempt to push through by force.
12:28 am
castro thank you so much for that great to get your perspective as we say after reporting from there and actually you should have a listen to this at home if you go to al-jazeera dot com and go to the podcast section. and can we see it on screen i haven't got it it's not connected i do want to show you this though because. not going to fail but anyway go to the pub concept in a down to zero dot com we have a great series called the take hosted by m.p.'s tired and counter was a guest on that she was sending voice messages by whatsapp actually explaining what she was saying there it's a great way of seeing inside the stories that we cover one story every week as a in this case it was the border story with heidi georgetown story and with barry malone who is the executive producer of the streams a really do recommend you go and have a listen to that it's in the podcast section you can also go to i tunes or google play store and. subscribe to those what you can do now the initial reports and the
12:29 am
images of what was happening came through social media of course is where all the reaction has been as well there is here now with more on the reactions and how they've developed in the past few hours that's right while these images have gone viral a woman and her two daughters running away from take guess as they try to cross into the u.s. and on twitter people called it an attack on children and the closure of the border illegal since there is no declared states of emergency and some accuse president trump of creating a crisis to justify the use of force they are using the hash tag reichstag fire referring to the parliament fire in berlin that hitler used as a pretext to restrict civil liberties in germany now this incident has brought attention to immigration and also asylum laws the u.s. immigration and nationality act says migrants arriving whether or not at a port of entry have the right to apply for asylum however president trump says that people entering illegally will be deported
12:30 am
a practice which contradicts both international and u.s. laws now the hashtags covering the conversation include migrants caravan to one up border and also take us and some like evan career argues that no one is illegal on stolen land and journalist wendy fry covered the events at the border as they unfolded take a look. ok so what's happening right now the country i hadn't really had that was the other side this basically goes to the kremlin now. police are trying to get a map here there's a fight going on about was. a. border patrol fired off a shot back i don't think it was a real gun shot but they're certainly never that threatening these people that they're going to think. that maybe start right here i mean they're scared.
12:31 am
but if you are currently at that us mexico border we do want to hear from you send us a message just use the hash tag is going to well thanks regina we're taking a look at some other stories making news around the world as you can see tourism a is speaking in front of the house of parliament front of the house of commons i should say in the british parliament the budget no doubt trying to sell the brig's a deal since he returned from brussels keep an eye on that one but we've got some other news to tell you there is a tuberculosis epidemic in papua new guinea and it's getting worse officials say poor infrastructure is only adding to the problem so far health workers have only been able to get a fraction get to a fraction of those who've been affected after thomas reports now from the capital port moresby. tuberculosis improper new guinea isn't just an issue it's an epidemic more than one in two hundred fifty people are known to have to kill a disease the real proportion is believed to be much higher. carry dusty fell ill two years ago but living in a remote area accessible only by boat it was five months before she was diagnosed
12:32 am
after she was she had trouble after taking the pills she was prescribed. i faithfully took my medications however my body wasn't reacting well to it i started to experience some kind of allergic reaction and side effects. dusty is perseverance but in rural papua new guinea that's unusual to treat tuberculosis patients need to take an elaborate and unpleasant cocktail of drugs regularly for months a lack of clinics and transport to those clinics makes getting those medicines to people or people to the medicines hard when the base appointment when did on their review dates i do a stand. i go out into the villages and i meet them and i ask them why you are not mean health workers reach only a fraction of those infected and when people let their treatments lapse the disease has a resurgence and becomes more tolerant to drugs once it's more into what's called
12:33 am
multi-drug resistant tuberculosis the disease is much harder and more expensive to treat hall of all patients die organizations like doctors without borders are trying to help but there's not enough central coordination the frustration that many have here is that papua new guinea's government is known for years that it has a big problem and that it's getting worse and yet despite having the money the government hasn't been spending it in the right way and hasn't made typing tuberculosis enough of a political priority earlier this month papua new guinea hosted the asia pacific economic cooperation summit for world leaders to discuss economic growth but critics question whether a country in the grip of a health crisis should be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on a conference the government except it must do better whilst things like funding for medicines has been quite a quite a large number it's the. it's the execution of the health services at the front in
12:34 am
that is suffering and our government take lessons of coming as treasurer has tried to emphasise that some of the funding streams in a budgetary process are essential for delivery of those services you can't sacrifice some of those. when you're rushing financing view around here have ever been to their country's capital but it is in port moresby that the political impetus is needed to stop what's already an epidemic from becoming a health emergency after thomas al-jazeera port moresby papua new guinea. now there is something called a blue economy conference starting in nairobi today blue hasn't the ocean because there's not only a lot of water out there there's a lot in that water which is a view. to us the oceans actually provide livelihoods for more than three billion people in the world wildlife fund has put a price tag on all the oceans of what they came up with at about twenty four trillion dollars each year our oceans generate three to six trillion dollars in
12:35 am
revenue and that is projected to double just by the year twenty thirty helping to explain why more than four thousand people are now meeting in nairobi so look at how to harness the oceans resources and to grow what is described as we say as the blue economy as catherine sawyer from nairobi. will be. in the next two days. the potential is huge but. says this needs to be protected more measures need to be put in place and also how . can be more engaged in this conservation.
12:36 am
and. really get involved in. bringing this to the continent. of exports and imports. our own point five billion dollars in revenue from the. potential is huge so it's going to be interesting to see what kind of decisions are going to be made. for what how this.
12:37 am
economy is going to be implemented not just by individual states but collectively as well. andy is here to talk about the big story in sport i can't i just keep asking every time i talk to you guys is the match going to go ahead with game that never was maybe never will but i think the odds are against it now increasingly south american football bosses will meet on choose day to decide where when or if the second leg of the copper libertarius final can say place the game between argentinian same's river pirates and pocket juniors was postponed for a second sign on sunday what a reminder this is the consonance mice important club football competition for the first time ever these fierce point is there is rivals a meeting in the final the first like a boxer stadium finished in a two two draw another return game at river plate's ground was set to take place on saturday but was postponed after an attack on the pocket same bus and on sunday the match was delayed again when organizers said the equal conditions bach were demanding couldn't be guaranteed daniel schweizer reports from one is aries.
12:38 am
this time the argentine or thought he's got the security right controlling the situation that the previous day had spiraled out of control. the bulk of june his team boss attacked him players injured running battles between police and fans and violence inside the stadium the south american football thought bowl said the much would go ahead and three hours before the scheduled kickoff they said it wouldn't and the stands for the second time in two days streamed out. there in the no vote again i'm annoyed because we came to enjoy a party we were ready river were ready to play and because of a police failure to protect one bus seventy thousand fans are left with this twice i'm angry for those that came here from other countries other cities around argentina the river supporters who have had to return home because they can't spend another night here and have to go back to work. jr said the players after their
12:39 am
boss was attacked were in no fit state to play either physically or psychologically and the prestigious. should be awarded to them let i mean we were clearly outages advantage yesterday and we ought to sporting disadvantage today and i believe the best for a bookcase to not play because we do not have the same conditions as a roofer. meet at the headquarters in the paraguayan capitalists on tuesday to decide where when and possibly if the game is to be replayed the copa libertadores final is still not over neither is the political fallout from saturday's violence with questions still being asked of the security forces river plate football club the south american football authorities and the wider arts and sciences. the phrase it's only football has never really resonated here least of all now. what went wrong and who is to blame is still to be decided to name all the fans as they so
12:40 am
often all have been left indignant angry and confused. by a lot in t.n.a. yet again is faced with a dilemma how to tackle its violent. crime there. when osiris wants to announce a south american football expert one around here he's joining us via skype from miami thanks for being with us so hard to predict anything about this story but say in your opinion how likely is it this game will actually be polite i think you just answered the question thanks for having me on it it's so difficult to really get a gauge on this we're going to find out what happens on tuesday because obviously the president called the ball a hundred i mean guess and the president river plate for those who don't operate there on the same page but it's now book of presidents when you say look at them you'll actually see what he had looking to do he's going to go talk to the disability support area tribunal to see what he can get from an executive standpoint as far as getting the match going in is way getting everything in favor
12:41 am
and probably getting the title from a pretty much a very adverse manner which is pretty pretty much the theme that is going on in this whole entire controversy that's the most thing and most controversial thing about it and this is a country hoping to co-host the world cup probably in twenty thirty but just how damaging has this episode paint now that it's pretty much a death knell to that so that bid there's been a lot of talk too about argentina backing out of the world cup bid for twenty thirty that should be probably announced sometime in march when you start looking at the people council that are beating in place here in miami actually and that's another big issue to be talking about for for the time if you really can't organize a match of this magnitude imagine trying to get the logistics down for a world cup one we know about the rivalry at least we think we know about the rivalry between these two teams so i was there at the great predictability about what happened could you see this happening. it was i mean it was part of what could

have happened in we see the worst case scenario unfolding right in front of our eyes and it's unfortunate because it does i mean what we saw on the pitch a couple of days ago over at level one it is the potential good to be seen as far as a struggle in recent sort of the pageantry the intensity all those factors that people want to see on the pitch now would you want to see outside now when you see the rivalry in the political ramifications that it's sad and the divisions and it's created not just within football circles but also in sushil circuits in argentina that's where you start to see the big problems emerging as far as that's concerned i think that's really where you start to see the roots occurring and that's the biggest problem that this rivalry is really running to in the past couple of matches. joining is the from miami thank you so much as one saying we'll hopefully get some clarity on what's going to happen on changes that are meeting in power equality well footage that went viral on the social media has resulted in the arrest of a woman who was stopping at nothing to get some pyrotechnics into the red upright

between moscow and kiev guarantees the coach straight on the sea of azoff is shared as a shared territorial waters with us security council holding an emergency meeting in new york to discuss this flare up in tensions between russia and ukraine. live at the u.n. we're going to hear from her in a moment but first let's go to our series for you chalons in moscow and rory bring us up to date with the latest on what president poroshenko the ukrainian president is trying to achieve. well his view and he's articulated this to the nation with televised addresses to the parliament as well is that essentially ukraine is a country that is under assault of the moments that it has. a duty to defend itself and defend its interests against russian aggression and therefore this
12:51 am
martial law proposal is something that's necessary to safeguard national security there are plenty of people though inside ukraine perhaps outside as well asking if this is really you know the time the place for it because even in the darkest days of. the russian an accession of crimea and then the battles in eastern ukraine in two thousand and fifteen develops the device cetera martial law wasn't brought in then even though there were hundreds of ukrainian servicemen dying under withering barges of russian artillery fire so there are people who suspect there might be political motives for this that martial law gives the president gives the government increased controls over civil liberties political liberties and that sort of thing there has been an assurance from president poroshenko that this was interfere with the upcoming presidential elections but i think there are people who
12:52 am
are skeptical about the motives for this despite the fact that for the moment at least the military threats seems to have died down around as we can hear now in my report from earlier. things seem quieter around the coach straight on monday captured and damaged ukrainian vessels docked in curch the russian controlled harbor russia has blocked access to the sea for commercial shipping sunday saw the worst open military confrontation between russia and ukraine since russian troops. crimea four years ago russian ships blocked the kurt strait it's an important shipping channel to supply the ukrainian industrial city of mariupol the russian navy rammed a ukrainian tugboat and opened fire on navy boats which russia said had trespassed into its territorial waters several ukrainians were injured as shots were fired though the military confrontation has cooled politically it remains hot yes. she's
12:53 am
given its address the leadership of the russian federation with a demand the immediate release of ukrainian servicemen who in violation of the international law were brutally detained and whose fate is unknown. ukraine's parliament could well approve president poroshenko as recommendation to impose martial law later martial law basically suspends normal political life no rallies no changes to the constitution no changes to senior political personnel including the president himself and elections bear in mind that president poroshenko is up for reelection at the end of march. craney an anger against russia is on display masked men lit flares outside the russian consulate in kharkiv a fire started inside the consulate compound in the kremlin this is all patrol is a cynical and premeditated provocation to shore up poroshenko as declining
12:54 am
popularity and provoke more sanctions against moscow then with his lawyer in that there are constant violations of the international humanitarian law and ukraine even without martial law shelling of residential areas in social infrastructure killings of civilians ukraine has requested an urgent meeting of the un security council that the later on monday leaders in kiev are trying to gauge the level of international support they have and what they're calling a place intact of russian aggression. so they don't want thing that politicians in ukraine will have noticed is that although there has been criticism of russian actions coming from the european union and from nato out of washington d.c. there hasn't been very much so this united nations security council meeting later on will i think give kiev
12:55 am
a chance to kind of judge the law of the land and work out what's kind of support they have from the united states of course it also gives a big platform to russia as a permanent member of the u.n. security council if anything came to a vote russia obviously has a veto which it would presumably use to safeguard its own interests or have to wait and see what happens later on in new york or that u.n. security council or orian mosco thank you let's take you to the u.n. in new york and speak to our correspondent there kristen saleman kristen it's not the same is it to say there's a lot of international concern about what is happening now in that area between russia and ukraine. certainly it's a very tense situation both the ukraine and russia called for this meeting of the united nations security council which is about to get underway any minute now they
12:56 am
both want to chance to air their grievances on the international stage the ukraine submitted a letter to the security council calling this act of that an act of aggression on the part of russia it wants its ships back it wants its crew back russia for its part is labeling this a violation of its borders that is how it wants this incident to be seen and it's called for a meeting on that premise here in the security council now we don't expect any official action certainly not to criticize russia here in the security council the russian veto pretty much guarantees that that won't happen but as rory was saying the ukrainians no doubt want to know how far its allies are willing to go to back them up to hear some strong statements in support we've already heard that coming from european countries the ambassadors here from european countries many of them are actually in china right now but they've issued a statement saying that they are gravely concerned about the escalation of tensions
12:57 am
in this area they say that they want russia to ensure access to ukrainian ports for ukrainian ships the big question really is what the united states is going to say the united states under the trump administration's been criticized for not being critical enough of russian president vladimir putin and master nikki haley however is representing the united states in the security council and she has been quite critical of russia in the past even stepping out ahead of the administration when it comes to issues like syria and so on so given that the president has not said anything about what's happening there given that he is under investigation for possible collusion with the russian government right now it will be interesting to see what halle has to say and she is in her last month almost of work here at the united nations she will be stepping down so she may be free to come out stronger than the administration has so far will have to wait and see what she says all right chris and keeping an eye all not meeting there at the u.n.
12:58 am
thank you. now turkish police investigating the murder of the saudi journalist jamal who should she have been searching two villages in the northwest of the country offices using dogs and a drone have scoured the properties in yellow over one hundred kilometers from istanbul remains have still not been found almost two months after he was killed inside the saudi consulate let's take you to yell over and speech our correspondent there tony berkeley and tony bring us up to date with what's happening in these searches. well the lights are on but no one's at home the research team is packed out for the day we don't know if they're coming back on choose day but so far that they've done their work for the day they've been here forty strong team so most of the day scamming the of the gardens here and also the house they had a fire brigade here to drain two wells to take samples we understand and this
12:59 am
basically is an unanswered question about what is this all about because these phone records that the saudi at the top stories are talking about have been in their possession now for a while but they've now decided that this of the phone call made from the saudi consulate in istanbul the day before mr casady was killed they say that phone call was made by. a colonel who was in the saudi defense force and he's one of the fifteen member saudi hit team that's accused of killing a mystic a saudi his name is soft man abu hussein and we understand from turkish media that he has has served for the crown prince of saudi arabia now that the prosecutor in in ankara has said that in this phone call he discussed details of how to dispose of a mystic a soldier's body that's interesting because that was a day before the murder it just another piece of evidence showing that this murder was meticulously planned and premeditated there are two questions main two
1:00 am
questions now about mystical body where was he remains disposed of those two theories one that he was dismembered in the saudi consulate in istanbul and his remains were. put in an acid bath and disposed of that way or he was dismembered and then put in black suitcases which were purchased by members of the saudi consulate on the morning of the murder and then taken out of turkey under in bags with diplomatic privilege so they don't know which one it is they've asked the saudis for cooperation they complain that they're not getting any cooperation because the saudis are holding people accountable the safe. wives are facing the death penalty but the turkish authorities are concerned because they don't have any information about where the body and you know and they don't have any information that if it wasn't the crown prince who was responsible for altering the hit then who was it and they want information at the moment the saudis are not helping them out or attorney with the latest there from those searches at his residence in.
