suring at least for now that their lives stay very much in limbo that's one of the reasons things have been set up differently here. at the beginning of the new show response that the additional response was to set that then as we need another shot but since they didn't like it they looked at the hamilton outside the cell. hammocks because it's what they're used to sleeping on not. fernando good you know with the u.n. h.c.r. tells me hundreds of them have been placed in this converted gymnasium to help the white house feel more stable there nobody already vulnerable position and it's clear when we receive them at the border when we check their health conditions it's very clear that they have more room than abilities in they need they have more specific needs. but it's not just the sleeping arrangements that are unique camp administrators also set up a communal kitchen. one of the more interesting things we found in this shelter is

12:05 pm
turkish officials believe and of and may have been used to dispose his body. venezuela's opposition leader says he will return home on monday to lead new protests against president nicolas maduro despite the threat of arrest ecuador was the last one of those latin american tour to gather support. now the u.s. consulates and joe islam but still to palestinians is to be absorbed by the new u.s. embassy in the city on monday the controversial decision to make them into a single type a magic mission was announced by the u.s. secretary of state i pump am a consulate has been in place for about one hundred seventy five years and access to fact a u.s. embassy of palestinians and the palestinians consider the merger a downgrade and diplomatic relations jacobs is a partner at the truman national security project and he says there's no going back
12:06 pm
on the embassy move even if trump leaves office bear in mind that in one thousand nine hundred five the it became law in america to try to move the embassy to jerusalem in every six months since then there's been a waiver to to prevent it from happening and it was passed on a bipartisan basis so i don't think the embassy in any way shape or form will will move back to tell of the the issue of the consulate in jerusalem once this change is made i don't imagine that it would change again but i think very importantly one part that's being missed i don't know that the israelis would object to the americans building a full fledged embassy in ramallah and i don't know why that's not something that's being discussed any change like that needs to be you'd significantly and again it just it points the direction that the trip administration is going in but again i do believe that the israelis would not object to the americans putting an embassy in ramallah i think actually in fact that they would celebrate it because one of the big issues that the israelis look at is the idea of in any sort of two state
12:07 pm
solution of splitting jerusalem and if they were at the americans were to put an embassy in ramallah it would dictate that the palestinians if they were to have some sort of capital in east jerusalem it would not be the same sort of wouldn't have the same diplomatic status as ramallah so again i think the israelis would actually welcome the idea. it's almost the reason he wants to end large scale military exercises in south korea is to save the u.s. hundreds of millions of dollars and washington and so have agreed to cut back the drills saying it's part of efforts to reduce tensions with north korea they will carry out smaller joint exercises comments come just days after denuclearization talks between the us president and kim jong un broke down in vietnam also in jordan has more details from washington d.c. . the u.s. president donald trump has long criticize the necessity of two key military exercises held by the u.s.
12:08 pm
and south korean military key resolve and foal eagle for the past decade or so military forces from both countries have trained to be prepared in case of an attack from north korea on south korea the u.s. has a treaty obligation to provide and to protect south korea in case of any attack from its enemies notably from north korea well even though the exercises themselves were very expensive it's long been thought that the president wanted to end those exercises one because that's something that pyongyang has been asking for and to to give a reason to want to strike a deal on its nuclear weapons program however there are some military analysts who suggest that the exercises themselves were quite valuable in terms of troop readiness and that the president and his ongoing efforts to try to broker a deal to get rid of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula might have given away
12:09 pm
some leverage whether or not that is in fact the case we'll have to see but certainly the south korean government is saying that for now it wants to support u.s. efforts to broker a deal with pyongyang on the nuclear weapons question and so it is willing to a focus instead on other smaller joint military exercises with the u.s. if that's what it takes to get and manti nuclear deal. an executive from chinese tech giant huawei who is facing extradition to the us is suing the canadian government its border agency and the national police. lawyers says her rights were violated when she was detained and questioned in vancouver last december. attorneys say she believes she believed she was undergoing a routine customs check but it was only after giving border agents information and electronic devices that they told her she was under arrest last week canada started
12:10 pm

12:11 pm
can return to the home she left more than a year ago health workers have to check to make sure she doesn't have the ebola virus as my i heard there was an abode outbreak and that it kills i also heard that if one person is infected in the family everyone else can get it too and i've seen the pictures of those who died from a bowl or i was afraid that me and my children got infected so i took them and i returned to south sudan. because an outbreak first declared last august is the worst in the republic history more than five hundred people have died and a further three hundred have been infected most of the cases are in areas controlled by armed groups making it difficult for aid workers to reach and if they do provide treatment well things have a preview camps near the epicenter of the epidemic more south sudanese are choosing to head home. people arriving from the neighboring democratic republic of congo are screened for ebola at fives like this one in the center of a people arriving from uganda which is also considered high risk country are also
12:12 pm
screened but others are getting through without screening because of challenges at the border. agency say between fifty and one hundred people are arriving in south sudan every day but not all crossing points have screening sites and not all screening sites are easily accessible which is raising fears about the potential spread of the disease screening sites they're located between the border areas between the r.c. in south sudan and uganda and south sudan they are extremely hard to reach due to complex security situation and extremely poor infrastructure so these two are the major challenge that we face in terms of stepping up. gaining access and maintaining access for continued. prevention and preparedness activities the authorities in a say they're trying to raise awareness to make it easier for people to get screened we have been advocating so much for people particularly. to make
12:13 pm
sure not to use more free channels where the screaming points should not be come to those points were goes over still in the fields most of them used to moves on but as a challenge but we are. getting that we really need to use the off issue because we don't have all the capacity to set up and screaming all those porous borders ilia has been screened and assured she's well but it claims more victims in the democratic republic of congo and fighting continues to cut off access to border points in south sudan there are concerns if the disease spreads aid workers here in a will have to step up from a position of preventing access to one of containing it people morgan al-jazeera arab or state. colors is set to become a stony us first female prime minister. after center right opposition party won the country's general election their reform party beat the prime minister's ruling center left party with almost thirty percent of the vote opinion polls predicted
12:14 pm

12:16 pm
in october the us national institutes of health decided that all chimps who are healthy enough to travel be brought here. this is a far cry from the lives chimpanzees lived in research labs instead of serving humankind with. bodies. they're being catered to themselves. so i'm like julie as we're born in the wild others have never seen a tree you would think if you gave a chimp a tree they would climb it that's not true chimps are territorial sometimes fatally so to newcomers so any faults is part behaviorist part mammal matchmaker when they arrive we actually go and do observations on the groups and on the individuals and try to see where we think that they're going to best fit in and with what family they're going to do best and once we kind of make that determination. they have a say in having
