a new 2nd vaccine for clinical trials is raising concern this new maxin that's being discussed is one that requires 2 doses about 56 days apart so there's a lot of discussion about if we know we have an effective vaccine that's being used and has taken so long to get acceptance by the population if there's enough of that dexie and we know it's effective why introduce another vaccine into into this outbreak for now at the border travelers are relieved that operations are back to not one but many people in the city of around 2000000 are afraid that the disease that has arrived on the doorstep may spread catherine sorry al-jazeera nairobi kenya. olivola has been around for 43 years and in that time it's claimed 15000 lives the disease is easy to catch hard to contain and has no cure you
can get the virus either by eating animals that have been infected or through contact with other people's bodily fluids the symptoms are severe they include high fever muscle pain organ failure as well as internal and external bleeding on average half the people who get infected do not survive the latest outbreak has an even higher mortality rate of 66 percent well joining us now via skype from the capital kinshasa is heather kerr she's the head of the charity save the children in democratic republic of congo madame thank you so much for joining us here. to talk about this incredibly important story or c n n and of course the region right now to give us your assessment of what the situation is now when it comes to the spread of ebola within d r c have occurred can you hear me hello. hello thank you so much for
joining us could you please tell us what the situation is like in the or c. right now when it comes to the spread of ebola. well as you know there have been no more confirmed cases in goma and goma is a big city on the edge of lake right on the rwandan borda so many people in goma really worried by the fact that there are new cases and one of those cases traveled a really long way all the way from the cheery about 500 kilometers back to go mo so he came in contact with a lot of different people on the way so it's really vital that contact is made with his contacts so they can all be vaccinated and followed up so we don't see many more cases in goma and for that victim his immediate family has been quarantined the band how difficult is it going to be is going to be possible at all to try to contact the people that he's been in touch with or at least spread the word that
you know he did have the disease and people should look into vaccination of that have come in contact with him. i mean it could be in the city of goma itself i think it will be will be much easier but the distance that he traveled and he i know because i'm a different bike so it might be really difficult to. find all those different people that he traveled with but it's vital that they get vaccinated and remind us what the challenges are in the r.c. particularly which has its own set of challenges beyond bola one of the difficulties in i guess spreading education about the disease and getting people to vaccinate. it is difficult as you know this is taking place in a very insecure area active complex going on you've got a really mobile population who are on the move across borders or within diaz see
itself and then you've got many people who actually don't believe that it exists and this is the thing we've got to we've got to crack i mean more people understanding what it is but i've even come across doctrines. even among them which is deeply worrying so this is our biggest challenge is really to get people to understand what a boat is but they've also got you know problems of their own they've lived in a really in secure area for a long time and what they really want is peace and security for their families so it's hard to convince them about it but we simply have a few that have their current head of the charity save the children in the democratic republic of congo madam thank you so much for having joined us thank you . and this plenty more still ahead in this news hour including why iran says washington's latest sanctions are quote childish and will have no effect

on an identified short range projectile launch from the country's eastern coast it's the 3rd such launch in one week or so korean state media says the leader kim jong un oversaw the previous test firing over a new rocket launcher system on wednesday but south korea says it fired 2 short range ballistic missiles u.s. president don trump says he's not concerned by the missile tests. well speaking of him in a few hours time trump will outline his pitch for reelection in 2020 a campaign rally in the city of cincinnati america's economic strength is likely to dominate the event even as worries remain over the trade war with china the trumpet ministration is reportedly frustrated the talks are not progressing as fast as it wants and has now announced a new set of tariffs well it is your caster is live for us in cincinnati be good to see you what do we actually know about these new cars. even
brazil these areas were actually announced by trying to be a twitter a few hours ago he said that this will be a 10 percent tariff on an additional $300000000000.00 of chinese goods and it would take effect in september and the reason that trump gave was that china he said has not fulfilled its promise to buy more american agricultural products and it has not done enough to limit the export is spending on free for service to the u.s. now this effectively puts an end to that temporary trade groups that we start taking effect in june when both sides had agreed to start asking leading this trade war while talks were ongoing in fact the u.s. trade representative's just returned from another round of talk. it's in china and trump's content just a few days ago was that these talks were progressing he said they were constructive and that he was looking forward to a more positive dialogue so today's development is something that certainly takes
another turn and escalates tensions further the president spoke for reporters earlier. what would you say when china for the last 20 years has been taken hundreds of billions of dollars out of our country and we had a president that would never do anything a number of presidents that never would do anything about it what would you say for many years china has been taking money out by the hundreds of billions of dollars a year we have rebuilt jai that so now it's time that we change things around if they don't want to trade with the city for that would be fine with me would save a lot of money. the president speaking a little earlier and heidi behind you trump supporters a streaming into the rally that will start quite soon that in cincinnati where you are what can we expect from trump at the rally tonight. was round the day today mara trump has been attacking the democrats who really were
the headliners in the news cycle for the last 2 days because those 20 candidates vying to be the democratic nominee for president were debating on stage the last 2 nights of trump today said that is that foreign adversaries of the united states would want any of those candidates to win because they would in his words make it easier for never serious to revive the united states he also went on to attack democrats saying that no one among the pack of 20 hopefuls would be able to sustain the economic progress that the u.s. has seen while he's been in the white house and so that is the talking point that is expected to be further here when trump takes the stage in about an hour or two's time and that is certainly what his advisors are hoping he will sell that story of economic success which has resonated not only with his base but also with americans in general however because of the unpredictable nature of this president we know he
likes to talk a lot off topic off of the script for these rallies there is some expectation he may again go into that to this of language a has these racial undertones that has been criticized by democrats at this last rally the happen to leeds ago there when the crowd erupted in send her back to chance if you recall that was targeting a somali i'm bored congresswoman from minnesota a trump has attacked for her progressive ideas so the crowd here i've spoken with sound they say that that kind of stuff doesn't bother them trump did say that he disavowed the. chance but he also seemed to revel in the moment 2 weeks ago at the last rally so it remains to be seen whether that happens again tonight barbara and you will of course be monitoring all good all the developments from that rally had to show castor life for us in cincinnati for the moment thank you. well meanwhile a rat has accused the u.s.
of being quote childish for imposing sanctions on its foreign minister mohammad javad zarif assets in america have been frozen washington says he promotes the reckless agenda over iran's supreme leader has more now from the iranian capital iran's president taking center stage at an event in azerbaijan province but his speech was yet again dominated by foreign politics attacking the united states decision to impose sanctions on iran's top diplomat foreign minister mohammad javad zarif on. the shows that they got frustrated and now if they say we want to negotiate well the path for that is with the foreign ministry and the foreign minister as the head of that ministry they're afraid of the ministers interviews this shows that the white house is shaken and it is afraid of the logic of an intelligent deployment. zarif is the latest victim of the u.s. maximum pressure campaign on iran it's freezing his assets in the u.s.

finance or biggest arm or the sentients come at a time of heightened tensions between tehran and washington be it in the waterways of the gulf or in proxy conflicts in the middle east the united states says it doesn't recognize the reefs authority in leading the goshi. many here see that as ironic given zarif is known to be very close to iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei and if anyone has the authority to engage with the west it will be him but washington says it also doesn't want to engage with anyone from iran's government the foreign minister is now the latest on a long list separating officials under u.s. sanctions and with each new designation any real hope of resolving the conflict between tehran and washington gets bleaker there are such a pari al-jazeera to her on. violence by drug cartels and criminal gangs is pushing mexico's murder rate to a record high that's this fight a pledge by the president and the rest find

a sharp economic decline forcing business owners to close shop and leave town a kidnapping is a what really of. making news headlines about kidnappings has also been bad for us it's had a devastating private investment in the city but. the escalating violence and vera cruz is just one example of the deteriorating security situation across much of the country there were 17608 murders recorded in wide in the 1st half of the year a 10 percent increase from 2018 which happened to be a record setting year for homicides in mexico. i worry about homicides i worry about kidnappings and robberies against people. the mexican president's strategy to combat violence has been the creation of a national guard. critics say this militarized response by the government has until now failed to deliver its intended results the almost that they have been seen by
the main strategy of this government has been the national guard which has not even finished being established so it's difficult to evaluate if they are even fulfilling their goals. and much of mexico in security is rooted in the splintering of drug cartels who fight over control of territory that violence however frequently spills into the community we're walking along the boardwalk in quotes a bit a cruise a part of town that would normally be full of people enjoying the beach in the sun as you can see there's hardly anyone here afraid of becoming the next victims of extortion or kidnapping or murder many of chosen to leave but resident. what's a better cruise. italy's that pretty prime minister met their son vinnie has warned that authorities will seize a mediterranean rescue vessel if it enters italian waters the allen currency owned by the german aid organization the cia is heading for the talon island of lampedusa the crew pulled 40 people out of
