security council is due to hold the much session on this in the coming hours. young man now says it can reach the u.s. mainland the new who are song fifteen intercontinental ballistic missile flew to an altitude of up to four and a half thousand kilometers and traveled nine hundred sixty kilometers spending nearly an hour in the air that high the missile traveled more than ten times above the international space station which orbits four hundred eight kilometers above the earth several weapons experts suggest the missiles last a trajectory suggest an actual range of thirteen thousand kilometers which is enough to reach washington d.c. and any other part of the continental united states but that also means europe which is seven thousand six hundred fifty nine kilometers away from north korea is also now reachable by missile kathy novak reports from south korea's capital seoul . it's being celebrated as a priceless victory in north korea state media says the country has completed its rocket system development with the successful test launch of
a new long range missile and you're going to get the i.c.b.m. what song fifteen weapon system is it into continental ballistic rocket took to the super large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the u.s. it's the third i.c.b.m. test this year north korea says this one is more advanced than the hawse on fourteen's in july traveling for around fifteen minutes to an altitude of about four and a half thousand kilometers before landing in waters off japan the intended target according to pyongyang's media from the u.s. president who has threatened fire in fury in the past this response or we tell you that we will take care of it we have general mattis in the room with us and we had a long discussion about it. it is a situation that we will handle it went higher frankly than any previous thought they paid for research and development effort on their part to continue building
ballistic missile that could threaten. everywhere in the world basically south korea says it detected the test in advance of the launch at around three a.m. local time and immediately responded with joint army navy and air force drills launching three missiles that simultaneously hit a simulated target the intended message to north korea the south could take out the launch site if necessary president trump spoke with the leaders of south korea and japan. japan will resolutely enhance its pressure on north korea to the maximum level we will continue to protect the lives and livelihood of the people of japan on to the strong japan u.s. alliance president monday and told trump that north korea's technology has apparently improved a. to continue the sanctions campaign that angers kim jong un's government but so far has failed to stop its missile and nuclear tests. yourself korea and the
united states along with the international community have no other choice but to continue applying strong pressure and sanctions the south korean government says those sanctions are designed to force north korea to negotiations there has been no communication between the two countries since last year the u.s. and its allies have often said that denuclearization is a precondition for talks but it seems increasingly likely that if north korea comes to the table it will insist on doing so as a nuclear state cathy know that al-jazeera seoul mark fitzpatrick is the executive director of the international institute for strategic studies americas joins me live now from washington d.c. thanks very much for speaking to us how would you describe this lady here how would you describe this latest missile launch by north korea have we reached or are we reaching a critical point in the development of the nuclear program it's an evolution in the capabilities of north korea this missile flew eight hundred kilometers
higher than the other one it was in the air seven minutes longer so it's a more capable missile but i think some people are exaggerating its capabilities it cannot hit anywhere in the world i don't think it can even hit anywhere in the united states that doesn't matter north korea just needs to be able to hold one major city in the united states at risk and seattle is within the range of this missile what's interesting here is that north korea is now saying that it has reached its goal this signals that maybe no further tests are needed in its judgment and if so that's a good thing because we've been worried the next evolution might be a nuclear test in the pacific that would be very very provocative but would you rule that scenario out. i don't rule it out i don't rule it out at all but it's i'm just pointing out that if you're looking for some small silver lining here and
i'm not sure anybody is but the fact that north korea said that it had met its goal may indicate that it thinks that it has completed its missile testing there's one other interesting thing here there have been three i.c.b.m. tests all of them have worked that's rather extraordinary most of the time they don't work the first few times so north korea has a well developed system here at my institute we think they probably got it got the engine from somewhere else right so i know this is the first successful test of an i.c.b.m. following two launches and in july you're saying that that in itself is quite significant you surprise then the speed at which the engine is north korea has been able to reach this point yes it's very surprising that that all three tests have performed. well that's very abnormal in an i.c.b.m. development you know if you're if you're developing new systems they're not going
to work perfectly the first time so this is why we. think that the engines came from somewhere else and if north korea is now satisfied that it has a system that meets its needs maybe they want to do other provocative launches you know they had said that they might envelope guam in a series of missile tests and they haven't done that and let's hope that the they won't but you know depending on how the world responds there could be an escalation and the crucial question now is how the u.s. might respond does this in a launch propel or extinguish the prospects for diplomacy. well i wrote a piece published this morning that it has extinguished diplomacy for the time being not that diplomacy was going anywhere the north koreans showed no interest donald trump had told the secretary of state rex tillerson you know it's what you
know and forget about the diplomacy tillerson we're still trying but wasn't getting support from the president you know that this would have been a period when diplomacy had some prospects because during the autumn and winter when there are no joint us south korean military exercises that always are something that north korea treats as a provocation and there is always an escalation this would have been a period for diplomacy but this missile tests blows that prospect out of the water i'm afraid. mark fitzpatrick executive director of the double i double s. america's thank you very much quite happy to talk to al-jazeera thank you. u.s. president donald trump has shed and he muslim videos posted by
a far right british activist going to his twitter account retreated three separate videos posted by j. de france and deputy leader of the person first movement i want house correspondent can really help it has the latest from washington d.c. . the largest muslim civil rights group in the united states is condemning the video shared by the president on wednesday morning calling them islamophobia and also inciting violence against muslims still many well finding this outrageous are not surprised by the material that has been retreated by the president given the fact that he on the campaign trail called for a complete and total ban on muslims entering the united states as well as president in the early days of his administration putting in place a travel ban targeting travelers from muslim majority countries it's been challenged in the courts many people arguing that this in essence is a ban on most of them something that the white house has repeatedly denied certainly the white house still no public statement with regard to these latest
videos however not surprising given the fact that the president has had these positions and even as recently as one month ago blaming an uptick on crime in the united kingdom on what he called the spread of radical islamic terror the statement certainly inflammatory but also reflective of what many in the united states believe and helped donald trump become president trump's tweets have provoked a strong reaction online t.v. personality and presenter piers morgan has responded by asking trump what he's doing retreating burson first a group he describes as a bunch of disgustingly racist far right extremist british politician and labor m.p. david lammy has also accused us presidents of promoting a fascist racist extremist hate group he continues trump is not an old friend of ows and the husband of british politician joe cogs who was mugged by a far right supporter in two thousand and sixteen has also condemned the retreat writing trump has legitimized the far right in his own country now he's trying to
do it in our as spreading hatred has consequences and the president should be ashamed of himself. former bosnian croat military leader has died after drinking poison at a u.n. war crimes court somebody and probably ak drank the substance just seconds after his twenty year sentence has been upheld and it's misreports. with his twenty year sentence for war crimes upheld on appeal. it was not about to go quietly it we received it through. shouting i am not a war criminal a former croatian general took a drink from a small bottles. for a short time the presiding judge continued to deliver verdicts on the other defendants then probably heard again through a translator i have taken poison. the seventy two year old's lawyer peter klein's claim. klein says he drank a poison this morning she says. police. flew from zagreb to the
netherlands and surrendered himself to the hague tribunal in two thousand and four with his co-defendants he was charged with trying to create what was described as an ethnically pure greater croatia. probably ak was found guilty with others of helping a stylish concentration camps for bosnian muslims and specifically he was charged with ordering the destruction of the city of must ask ottoman era brick. these were the last verdicts to be handed down by the international criminal court for the former yugoslavia it was set up in one thousand nine hundred three at the height of the balkans wars to prosecute europe's worst atrocities since world war two bernard smith al-jazeera. and watching out is there still to come ages from europe and africa how that first joint summit on the ivory coast with migration top
