6:49 am
you know i'm maryam namazie with al jazeera live from london also coming up the world health organization decides not to declare an international emergency over the apolo outbreak in the democratic republic of congo and uganda a military spokesman for the who is the rebel group in yemen warned civilians to stay away from airports in saudi arabia and the u.a.e. and mexico's president promises tighter security at dozens of border crossings to combat the flow of migrants to the united states. britain has joined the u.s. in accusing iran of attacking 2 oil tankers in the gulf of oman the united states released a grainy video to back up its claims but iran denies it's to blame and germany is saying the video is not conclusive stephanie deca has this report. what happened to the 2 tankers in the gulf of oman well it depends on who you ask. in
6:50 am
iranian t.v. video shows the norwegian own tanker altera on fire. and u.s. central command released this footage early on friday claiming it shows iranian revolutionary guards removing an unexploded limpet mine from the japanese cookoo cook courageous the time stamp according to the americans shows it happened after the vessels crew had been rescued nothing is clear but the message from the us administration is iran was behind it it is the assessment of the united states government that islamic republic of iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the gulf of oman today. this is a cessna that's based on intelligence the weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar raining attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication. in tokyo the breakdown from the japanese who owned
6:51 am
the kuka courageous seems to shed some doubt on the american version of events the company official shows where what he calls a shot hit the tanker in 2 areas the head of the company gave more detail the holes and more than a good many the crew is saying that it was hit by flying object they're saying that something came to light to put a bomb on the side of the boat is something we are not considering iran has dismissed the u.s. accusations that it was behind the alleged attacks calling the incidence especially as its foreign minister accusing the americans of trying to sabotage diplomacy as the incident happened when the japanese prime minister shinzo abbott was into han on an official visit both tankers were hit early on thursday morning after posturing through the strait of hormuz all crew members were safely evacuated both tankers suffered damage around the waterline i mean the main thing to notice is that they're quite small warheads whatever they are so those are not enormous entry
6:52 am
entry penetration mox they clearly haven't. had a huge amount of explosives behind them so yes it was something like. you would expect a lot more damage on the ship at the moment there are far more questions than answers but what is certain is that this is a provocative and dangerous development in an already tense geopolitical environment stephanie decker al-jazeera they run in present as an iranian says the u.s. is pushing an aggressive stance that cannot be tolerated. as the government of the united states over the last 2 years is using economic and military capacity and is creating an aggressive approach the united states has stepped over all the norms and regulations of the international community and has created new threats for the region and the world when the policy now is the us defense secretary patrick shanahan has been speaking about the tanker explosions kristen salumi has been
6:53 am
following this from washington and kaylee the trump administration has been emphatic in its conclusions that iran is behind these attacks though iran denies any involvement but has there been any indication of how they might act on these assertions yes certainly the trump administration is not backing down on its stand that it is wrong iran is responsible for these tanker attacks but we did hear from the acting defense secretary patrick shanahan earlier on friday and he says the focus now going forward is to build international consensus for those claims the united states had trouble building consensus when it withdrew from the iran nuclear deal even its closest allies decided to remain in that pact and that caused some tension with allies as well as iran now we're hearing that the united kingdom is supporting the united states claims and shannah heads shanahan said that moving forward the entire administration is committed to building more
6:54 am
support for their point of view. because you can tell we have it here in the situation they're in because it's not a us situation the focus. for myself and that's rebuilding. capon pale is to build international consensus to this international problem as all the you are very aware of the department of our rules to set the conditions for diplomacy. that i would share with you and this is part of the conversation that we all have transparency in getting intelligence to see if we have the big push in the last 24 hours to continue to get information out. shanahan was also asked about the possibility of sending more troops or military capabilities to the region he said that the united states is always planning for contingencies but
6:55 am
again brought it back to that consensus building concept he pointed out that the pentagon's role now is primarily sharing this intelligence to help build that support he pointed out that 15 percent of crude oil on the market comes through the strait of hormuz and the line from the united states continues to be that they don't want conflict in the middle east but they will defend u.s. interests and that includes commerce thank you very much with the latest from washington kristen salumi. well the u.n. secretary general has condemned the incident in the gulf of oman and says the truth about what happened must be established diplomatic editor james bass has more from the united nations headquarters in new york. addressing reporters alongside the arab league secretary general arma double gate antonio good terrorists said remarkably that he had not seen this video released by the pentagon and broadcast around the world he said he believed there should be an independent investigation
6:56 am
into the incident but the u.n. is not the right to launch investigations only the security council can do it and. in relation to that obviously not the right person to answer your question he also said that high level mediation was needed but again his hands were tied obviously the the mood offices of the secretary general are always available but the office of the secretary general of the mandates on the bodies of the. u.n. can only be exercised with the full agreement of the parties the secretary general seems to be placing limits on his own possible actions and they are limits that are not laid out in the united nations governing document the un charter so why does mr terrorist appear to be so reluctant to get involved i asked his official spokes person can you tell me where in the charter of the limits on his good offices where
6:57 am
are the limits in the charter to stop him setting up his own investigation i can't find any secretary general needs a legislative u.n. legislative body to set up an investigation is he because it has that has been that has been the practice. for as long as i've been here what does he need to carve out a more powerful role and is he not in effect shirking his response no i don't think he's sure at a time of global crisis he should be leaving that i don't and he's finding excuses not to i don't think he's shirking his responsibilities at all the secretary general is clearly putting the ball in the court of the security council but there are already clear indications on this. issued the council is deeply divided if mr good terrorists is waiting for a unified security council to give him permission to get involved he may be waiting a very long time limit game he probably already knows there aren't james out
6:58 am
jazeera but the united nations. just a developing story to bring you here that iraqi security forces say were rockets have been fired towards the capital baghdad this near the u.s. embassy it happened near the area district in the capital at least one rocket has reportedly hit a building opposite the embassy 3 mortars also landed at balad air base some 60 kilometers north where u.s. troops are stationed all this of course significant in light of recent tensions in the gulf. the world health organization has decided not to declare an international public health emergency over the outbreak in the democratic republic of congo and 1400 people have died there since august and the 2nd west outbreak in history it comes amid concerns the virus may have spread to uganda where 2 people died after
