11:19 am
from taking any military action i think the iranians feel that it would be silly and foolish if they did not have a robust defense capability and the iranians believe that it is because of it defense capabilities and its defense industry and its high tech capabilities that the united states has refrained from any aggressive aggressive act towards iran well one of the things that the iranians have done is that they've developed a very. capable missile defense capability and both surface to surface surface to see surface to air and sea to sea and therefore it's made it much more different month many of iran's defense in sedations are deep underground this is the experience of the two thousand and six war between the israeli regime and hezbollah when the israelis invaded southern lebanon and were soundly defeated i think that experience really is part of iran's
11:20 am
defense strategy in other words taking all of your sense of it installations underground so that the potential enemy cannot strike them and would not know exactly where your facilities are so you run has extensive underground facilities and of course a submarine would be a part of that. yemen's government and the rebels have struck a deal over the withdrawal of troops from have data the warring sides have agreed on the first phase of a pullout from the port city it comes after two days of un led talks aimed at ending the four year conflict representatives from both sides have not given a date for the redeployments a strenuous government says political parties have been targeted in a cyber attack carried out by a foreign state the breach of the parliament's network was detected on february eighth promises scott morrison says the attack was sophisticated but investigators have found no evidence of interference in upcoming federal elections andrew thomas has more from sydney. the prime minister scott morrison didn't name any particular
11:21 am
country when he talked about a sophisticated state actor being behind this cyber attack but most people think the security service is most suspect china although russia is another possibility as indeed the united states or even is right now this all started ten days ago when the prime minister said the security services detected a cyber attack on the parliamentary computer system including the email accounts of some m.p.'s and it's been during the investigation into that cyber attack ten days ago that has revealed that political parties computer systems have also been attacked not significant because the major political parties here hold huge amounts of personal information about voters they use that of course when it comes to targeting votes is in the run up to elections and there's a national election here jew probably in may now the prime minister said there's no evidence yet that there's been any electoral interference by states but the concern
11:22 am
of course is that that could come. well health organization says the anti-vaccination movement is in part responsible for a spike in measles cases around the world most recently in the u.s. and the philippines was it blames conflict and poor access to vaccines measles cause at least one hundred thirty six thousand deaths globally the philippines is struggling to contain the disease in january there were more than four thousand cases that's an increase of one hundred twenty two percent in the same period last year seventy people most of them children died in the past month seventy two people died in europe last year and two hundred seventy people most of them children have been infected with the disease in the recent u.s. outbreak. is an associate professor at the university of sydney's school of public health and an expert on immunization she says health professionals need to do more to gain the trust of vaccination skeptics. it really boils down to two things
11:23 am
really access and acceptance of vaccination we hunt look at one fact there are a number of them and to deal with the measles problem effectively we are going to look at the way those problems affect access and except in subjects a nation building trust around vaccination requires action and a number of different levels starting from not using vaccination for political or military purposes through to making sure that health care systems. themselves trustworthy and running well that is transparency in the way that any program in medicine is brachial a shit and the safety systems that are in claims to monitor the safety of vaccines are shared with the public so they can see just how much if it carries at a global and country level to make vaccines as safe as possible and in that the
11:24 am
health care professional level to support health professionals to have those conversations with parents who has attention about vaccination so that we can try to maintain individual trust in childhood vaccination and intrude at the sort of community level where there is clustering of opposition to vaccination working we in those communities is challenging in many ways we need to drive the discontent but it's very important to. trying to build trust because essentially confidence about vaccination rests on people's ability to trust that scene's medicine health care systems and governments. it was once a model of integration in its lee but the town of ras che came under attack last year when is lee's far right interior minister. ordered hundreds of refugees be
