1:09 pm
a lot of what the iranians are saying now follow on from a report citing an unnamed source who is a member of a u.s. military team and in their initial assessment they seem to suggest that iran might be behind the incidents that happened at fujairah ports now since then we've seen a senior members of parliament saying that the information being provided about what is happening or what actually happened in fujairah is too unclear it is still too vague it may be a circumstance of someone trying to goad the u.s. president donald trump into a conflict in the region another senior m.p. during a close session of parliament just earlier today seemed to suggest that israel might be behind the incident that happened at the port and as you mentioned just a few hours ago during his visit to india the foreign minister jaafari from self making a statement that squarely pointed a finger at the united states here's some of what he had to say how. we discussed regional issues on the policies of extremists inside the u.s.
1:10 pm
administration and in the region who are trying to impose their policies we also discussed the concerns we have about suspicious about tiger operations that are happening in the region that we had earlier predicted that they would carry out such measures. in the region. never ronnie and members of parliament that have been speaking about the incident continue to echo some of the things the foreign minister divides vary from said himself has said all along which is reaching out to neighboring countries in the region to partner up on regional security jobs or from south has continued to say that the countries in the region have been here longer that the united states is an outsider in this part of the middle east and it is up to neighboring countries to maintain security and stability here in this part of the middle east of course they have been longtime trading partners iran as well as the other countries in the waterways around it they have been sometimes friends sometimes supposed but they have always cooperated on regional issues how. for the invitation from iran now comes at
1:11 pm
a time of heightened tensions with the united states the countries in the region are all looking out for their national security and remain on high alert and there seems to be no clear path forward at the moment especially with heightened tensions with more u.s. military hardware in the area at this moment. from the hair on the. plenty more still ahead on the news hour including. china heads back and the markets react we'll have the latest on an escalating trade war with the u.s. and we'll meet a lake chad communities struggling to survive after increase attacks in the. biggest names are on course to return to a historic track in 2020 and he'll be here with that story of. security forces in short tackling an increase of violence against muslims
1:12 pm
a curfew is still in place in one province after attacks on mosques and muslim owned businesses so far one person is being killed in rioting in the united nations is worried the unrest could spiral under simmons reports. security forces say the violence is a direct result of the easter sunday bombings muslim businesses have been either set on fire or vandalized here a factory attacked by what police describe as mobs this was in the north where a curfew continued on tuesday morning police say they've used tough counter measures and the violence is now under control sri lanka's prime minister gave this warning in his speech to the nation ip. the unit that i have given all necessary powers to the security forces to take stern action against those breaching the peace by violating the curfew and emergency law security forces will take all steps
1:13 pm
to take action against those breaching the law therefore i request the fullest cooperation to the military and police to safeguard peace. police say in the 3 worst affected districts north of the capital colombo young people grouped together in what appeared to be planned actions. among the targets were muslim owned shops mosques were also attacked butyl. this small group must stop the dangerous game they play against the lives and property of innocent people i must state that we want to allow the country to be led to anarchy by those who show their strength on unarmed innocent civilians sri lanka's muslims make up less than 10 percent of the country's $22000000.00 population and political leaders here are warning that violence will not only crease tension but also hinder the investigation into these 2 bombings in which more than $250.00 people died andrew symonds how does it. go now to colombo where we connect the very latest from the
1:14 pm
phone and there's a minute we know that the curfew has been lifted in most parts of the country how volatile is the situation there. tensions are still pretty high particularly in that northwestern province i mean where a lot of these flashpoints were about 80 to 100 kilometers north of the capital colombo where you have several sort of towns where there were full radek violence there will be mobs there will move in business because residences that were targeted and now there are indications of reports still to be sort of confirmed but that they're world organized groups that was going around these areas specifically targeting muslim order to establish mint and that is one reason for concern among the muslim community the. sort of government muslim politician is around hakim is
1:15 pm
called on the government of the prime minister the tribe forces and the police to ensure that they get a handle on the violence to ensure that this targeting of the muslim community is brought to our hold but even with the curfew lifted in the rest of the country but in in the northwestern province we were still hearing reports despite the curfew so i mean that there was still pockets of violence are back again something for concern that curfew in the northwestern province will be lifted for 2 hours from $4.00 to 6 pm local time obviously to allow people time to stock up and things like that but will be in place once again this evening sami one of 4 as he's saying about the criticism that police just stood by and been active to stop these kinds of raids. that those reports have been coming through from the ground sami it's not
1:16 pm
a sort of overall inaction but there's a significant number of people particularly victims of this violence who've seen their businesses being torched basically mosques being destroyed saying that the police and some in some cases the armed forces who had been present what a new bill to quote to control the mobs that in some cases there were large groups of very very violent unruly people that basically the police and security forces deployed in those local areas couldn't actually control so this stood by helpless while they went ahead vandalizing burning destroying all these properties so that is a cause for concern and particularly where the muslim community is concerned has sent concerns and fears among them because what they want obviously is the armed forces and the police to ensure their security so obviously 6 these these comments these
1:17 pm
i witness accounts coming through but obviously we are talking about hawaii the area of an entire province now it is something that we're hearing that these mobs or these groups seem to be working on an organized scale that they keep hitting places that are left blind for example blind spots where at the moment there might not be a security presence obviously the police can be everywhere at all times but these people seem to be working on a very organized manner hitting places withdrawing moving on to the next and also if you look at the arrests we're hearing that 9 people in minong going to one of the worst affected one of the badly affected areas within the northwestern province 9 arrests made those people being charged with being responsible for instigating the violence also reports that more arrests have been made to particular arrests of particular interest. 2 people associated with anti muslim violence in the past
1:18 pm
have also been taken in by authorities and that's what we're hearing at the moment i mean. there's there thanks for that. the rebels say they're responsible for a drone raid on saudi arabian soil 7 drones attacked several saudi installations including according rather to the television station but it didn't mention the locations that were targeted or whether there were any casualties well her saying oh boy haiti is a pro hoofy journalist he joins us now from sun our good to have you with us if we could start with these reports and perhaps you can clarify for us what the both iran and syria television has been reporting what exactly was targeted in these drone rates. they haven't declared their exact target but we have seen in this statement that they said by. the installation and this is the 1st time that
1:19 pm
they've declared that they have part of good military installation and they believe that. clarify the. term vital installations are non military installations. yeah i believe there are non military installation and they could be vital installation for the saudi economy. economy committee has one saudi 2 weeks ago that if they are not going to stop part of it in yemeni economy that yemeni army will do this a month ago i said i think he has at least 48 of one of them a saudi worth of plan or as we call it. with a blunt in jazz on and i believe this footage was a warning to saudi arabia that if they continue with the thought of get yemen they will be kind of installation will be thought to get it and they believe it could be this work that blunt one of those how to get. it the timing is interesting because
1:20 pm
this comes after the reports of attacks on ships including 2 saudi ships off the coast of the u.a.e. are there any suggestions from who see forces that that might be part of the attack . on a yemeni voters in some i have conducted previously. on saudi arabia would they have not declared only months or few weeks after that is not kid who conducted those i thocht. ships but maybe in the end if you come in a days we will know exactly. that but that i have to say that the yemeni army on salado they have the right to conduct any ship either military or nonmilitary any economy in that it just of journalism that if you are aware of a deliberate targeting or civilian infrastructure would be considered in
1:21 pm
contravention of international law when you say though things have a right to target even nonmilitary infrastructure. no i mean i believe after for almost the now over for 40 years of saudi war and yemen they have destroyed all yemen infrastructure we haven't seen any diet condemn nation from the international community or from the united nation yorkey or france this country who are directly involved in support in saudi so i believe that yemenis rather than those who would still apply to both sides. so that i couldn't hear you know the laws of war the abrogated even by the actions of another side if the other side does not respect him and. maybe will move on from that and i think that is the 1st time let's ask the question the officials also speaking on the syria t.v. talking about more harsher more unique time to come from your understanding with
1:22 pm
who forces what are they referring to. i believe that the come in stead of the war against saudi arabia it will be and it couldn't. war many investors just be steady feared or the oil companies in saudi arabia which are actually the backbone of this over the military campaign into yemen out of the world without the. us that i've just always wanted to be able to buy their weapons other support from saudi arabia so i'm sure that in the coming days and coming weeks we get to see and you type of attack for yemeni drone units what yemeni but is that missile against some vital infrastructure inside saudi arabia and the whole and many shipping in the red sea. say the average american who the on of the world. but isn't there some other was
1:23 pm
killed by saudi arabia last year he have said that if there is any actor on holiday that there will be a major i think. that it's the on of the well inside saudi arabia because it will be really really silly for yemeni to receive this war for almost 4 more than 40 years while so it is used in international water in that it's easy to attack yemen which it is against international law they are you going to yemen water to attack him and so it would be silly to leave the either or your ship. or any any thought of ship related to saudi economy to go through that it see without their product in it i think i can add the same way they do. that we always say an eye for an eye on whose party is the one who should stop the war that would obviously have major implications for the world as well as serious concerns about violation of
1:24 pm
international law there was clearly a lot to talk about well thank you for your comments last fall. a rise in attacks by boko haram has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes in over the past few years the un refugee agency is warning of a growing humanitarian crisis. of course people in one community by lake child in the defer region struggling to survive. lake chad is shrinking which means today's catch will be a small one but at least for now these men can fish here legally in 2014 the governments of jerry and chad banned fishing on the lake to try to prevent the armed group boko haram making money from the lake and its surroundings that restrictions have recently been east. one of the government's decided to lift the ban on fishing growing paper and exporting fuel into clinic for 2 lies is at the time these things have been banned years ago as the biggest beneficiary in. this
1:25 pm
5 year ban has taken its toll on those who live around the lake and boko haram remains a constant threat it's always been tough living in one of the poorest regions in the world it's even more so now as part of its fights against the armed groups the government stepped up security which includes a curfew. before book ahora everyone used to go to the lake but not anymore the government has banned vehicles from being closed and the fish isn't enough to sell . one feeling red pepper industry is also struggling these peppers are turned into chili powder and sold all over the west africa and although farmers are again allowed to grow them finding a market is not so easy the movement of goods between najarian neighboring countries is difficult because of boko haram attacks. these women are preparing incense as favorites in gulf countries where many of

the violence is happening just north of the capital where mosques and muslim owned businesses have been targeted so one person has died in the rising. for more on this we're joined on the telephone by your ofac team who is the president of the sri lankan muslim congress who joins us on the line from hetty polar in sri lanka good to have you with us have authorities lost control of the situation. for a few are lost control or are they have this controlled ready by now unfortunately . several incidents that taken place in the not distant province. particularly in the western portion of the crew actually expect. several villages have come under attack by a mob. very unruly mob to go in and every. muslim place of worship at the. business places and
1:32 pm
a few residences. that come under. attack by the mob that people keep complaining that they jump in so the criticism that the police are simply not doing enough and in some cases simply standing by and watching mobs attack mosques and muslim owned businesses. well i am sure affected areas at the moment have come to a meeting. this morning the prime minister did with us and then we. have also come some in p.d.f. we may see it and be. a media story or. probably. nearly standing by when last i heard it was attacked mosques and he says please and some houses. are generally being spoken about everywhere
1:33 pm
so there can be smoke without fire but still it all depended on because the forces and the police to give us protection and this we have as the insisted from the. clay forces top brass yesterday ready in a meeting that was summoned and subsequently. so i'm curious to know so you say you requested. better security assistance your also a minister in the government i mean what kind of response are you getting when you are speaking to your own government. governor. chris. christie and then they are not trying to. contain this. all right we apologize that we seem to have lost the line to rove i came that.
1:34 pm
an israeli cyber firm is accused of developing a software used to hack mobile phones through what's up u.k. newspaper the financial times says the n.s.a. group's pegasus program targeted an unknown number of people using the app whatsapp says the spyware was used to penetrate phones through missed the voice calls the firm has urged its 1500000000 users to update their applications now israel classifies any technology as a weapon the company must obtain approval from the ministry of defense to sell it to foreign governments the ferment tains its software is only sold to fight crime and terrorism but a number of lawsuits accused of improperly helping the governments of mexico the united arab emirates and saudi arabia to spy on journalists and activists the murder of the last year put the firm under renewed scrutiny a friend of the journalist ahmed abdul aziz filed the lawsuit saying his phone was
1:35 pm
monitored by the saudi government shortly before her death or for more on this let's be. in london he's an investigative journalist at the associated press has been covering the n.s.a. group extensively thank you for being with us if we could start with the latest allegations how strong is the evidence that it is indeed and this technology that's now being used to hack whatsapp. so this information comes from the financial times which is citing a spyware reseller. the strength of the evidence is going to have to stay between the f.t. and their source but it's important to note that whatsapp hasn't exactly denied that report quite the contrary they've referred in their statement to a well known private cybersecurity company that is known to sell hacking tools or
1:36 pm
that fits and it's so group to a t. and when we spoke to them late last night they said that they wouldn't push back against any of the media reporting so that's pretty close to confirmation how reliable i guess with a company be for what others do with its technology their line is though you know it has to be before we sell anything it's vetted by the ministry of defense and the so products that have been linked to the targeting of journalists nutritionists even a human rights activist who is now jailed in the united arab emirates. yeah that's an excellent question sam in the it's one that dogged the n.s.o. group for years in fact because on the one hand they say that they they sell a product and what their customers do with that product is between the customers and their own national authority on the other hand and it's a group has also said that they investigate allegations of wrongdoing and they suspend customers who behave badly so it's
1:37 pm
a good question and we don't yet fully understand just how much of an insight n.s.o. has into its own customer's behavior and that's a question i hope will see answered sometimes one assumes if you're selling spyware technology to regimes or governments who have such a wreck or of internal suppression of internal dissent of targeting journalists of targeting human rights workers and activists. can you really think that this is going to be used in a purely legitimate way. i think that in the n.s.o. group's defense i would be very surprised if it least some of their products were being used to genuinely go after criminals and terrorists and others of that iraq that being said if you sell to countries like saudi arabia or other authoritarian
1:38 pm
governments then i would hope that a company in that position would ask themselves some very serious questions about how their products are really going to be used and also monitor how their products are going to be used that's not so difficult in the cyprus in cyberspace so what you raise is a very good question if you sell to bad people i'm sure in some ways responsible for the bad outcomes. or i will leave it there for now thanks so much for. thousands of children in angola a risk of starvation due to severe droughts and as according to the united nations many are being treated for malnutrition how has this room for. these health workers trying to save the weak vulnerable and hungry it hasn't rained properly in months and some of these children are severely malnourished the united nations says more than 2000000 people in the southern puppets of can any urgently need food and water and there are fears the situation is going to get worse. when i'm not hearing food
1:39 pm
in the community and in defame milly's directly affect the children because they rely on families we have little food reserves that's why so many are in this precarious health condition. some families try to survive on wild fruit if they can find any and finding clean water to drink and to irrigate crops is another challenge. in some communities farmers like i saw. there they have lost everything. this year. soria is worried what water and food he has is running out and he has a family to feed and most of them it is in an emergency situation all support is necessary there is that only from the central government but also from the international part of the angolan government because this is a critical strategy ration one of the most severe in the last 20 years. some parts
1:40 pm
of southern africa have recently been hit by supply clones flash floods and droughts people affected by that extreme weather urgently need help and some humanitarian workers said that aid isn't coming fast enough. china's foreign ministry is again warning the united states not to underestimate its determination to protect its own interests as the trade war rattles global finances asian stock markets took a hit on opening they were badly effective as the u.s. which suffered its worst losses in 4 months on monday. retaliated against america's new tariffs for imposing duties of its own on u.s. imports. brown is live for us in beijing so clearly there the chinese foreign minister ramping up the rhetoric right. yes it's interesting we've seen falls today on the stock markets here in chains
1:41 pm
then and shanghai but the falls actually were very small not as big as you might have expected given china's return a tree moves on monday but the the market in hong kong though was down by almost 2 percent and that's you know a continued reflection of the nervousness among investors really worried now about where this trade war is heading what is changing i think sammy is the propaganda that's becoming a lot more strident i was watching state t.v. on monday night and the main anchor read a lengthy editorial in which he essentially said that china didn't want is trade war but he was now quite prepared to fight it and win it and he also quoted president xi jinping saying that the chinese economy is not a pond but a sea a rainstorm can destroy a pond not a sea so we've had all these sort of metaphorical flourishes which you always see
1:42 pm
times like this i was also caught actually by something the editor of the global times newspaper said he's a man who seems to be pretty well connected and he's saying that essentially it may be time for china to start selling some of the vast amount of u.s. debt it has in the forms of u.s. securities and also to perhaps start reducing the orders that it places with boeing now that's the sort of talk the really does you know unsettled the stock market. or a adrian brown there thanks for that. north korea is demanding the return of its cargo ship seized by the united states from gang says the seizure goes against the spirit of the recent summit between the u.s. and north korea the vessel was detained in indonesia last year and towed to america and some are on saturday washington says the vessel was carrying coal in violation of sanctions against north korea brive has more from the south korean capital seoul
