as we go on through friday and noticed some snow around the canadian maritimes behind that sunny weather coming back through and we will still see. up towards the northwest into western parts of canada dry the united states across a good part of california but some dry weather now into central parts of the caribbean still a chance of some showers there just around the western side of the region pushing across into costa rica nick you rock you out maybe all the way up into honduras. but it's fine that you make. i really feel liberated as a journalist about. getting to the truth as i would that's what this job. this is al-jazeera.
5:01 am
welcome to the al-jazeera news our life for my headquarters and me elizabeth branom coming up in the next sixty minutes. if war comes make no mistake the north korean regime will be utterly destroyed the u.s. leaves a course of condemnation against north korea following its latest launch. former egyptian promise to fix says he's being prevented from leaving the u.a.e. after announcing plans to contest egypt's presidential election. the us president lashes out of the british prime minister after she criticized her for tweeting anti muslim videos and a bosnian croat criminal dies after drinking poison and a u.n. court moments after a twenty year jail term. the u.n. security council has held an emergency session following north korea's most recent
5:02 am
missile test pyongyang says wednesday's launch proves that has the capability to reach the u.s. mainland where u.s. president donald trump says major additional sanctions will be imposed on north korea but support for the u.s. position does not appear to be forthcoming from china or russia from the united nations mike hanna reports. for the ninth time this year the security council gathers to discuss yet another crisis centered on north korea an emergency session called for by the u.s. japan and south korea and a grave warning from the french representative this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and scale the threat is shifted from being regional to global. the u.s. ambassador makes a direct plea to china to place greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor
5:03 am
we need china to do more president trot called chinese president xi this morning and told him that we have come to the point that china must cut off the oil from north korea that would be a pivotal step in the world's effort to stop this international pariah but no such pledge from china instead it called again on the u.s. to explore a freeze for free scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if the u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia the militant group of what we proposed a solution based along the principle of suspension for suspension which in visions of d.p. r. k. stopping missile tests while at the same time the u.s. and south korea decreasing the scale of their military exercises this in turn will pave the way for the principles of peaceful coexistence and peaceful discussions between washington and pyongyang. but this is being repeatedly and vehemently ruled
5:04 am
out by the u.s. and clearly while the council is united in its condemnation of the latest missile launch it remains divided on how to respond the question now with the missile testing continues will the u.s. continue to seek solutions with its security council partners or decide to go it alone mike hanna al-jazeera united nations let's go live to the south korean capital now correspondent kathleen novak is and so also while the security council discusses how to respond cathy how people their way you are feeling about the advances the north has been making. well i think we often have this conversation elizabeth when we see missile launches a nuclear test coming out of north korea when it comes to the south korean general public and generally people are used to this kind of behavior coming out of north korea i think there is an understanding that it is concerning that north korea
5:05 am
seems to be displaying advances in its technology we heard president moon confirming that to the president trump when they spoke on the phone yesterday that south korea's assessment is that north korea seems to have made an advance in intercontinental ballistic missile technology and one of the things that you hear from people here is that the factor that has changed is president himself the fact that he tends to use fiery language strong rhetoric when discussing north korea addressing the north korean leader kim jong un directly in the past in response to the latest missile launch initially all president said was that the u.s. would handle it that they would take care of it but later when addressing crowds he once again referred to kim jong un as a little rocket man and as a sick puppy and those are the kinds of things that really anger the government of
5:06 am
kim jong un disrespecting the leader in north korea is something that is taken extremely seriously and what i think people here and certainly the president here are concerned about is the potential for a miscalculation of north korea or the u.s. might read the situation in. a way that would force them to take the military option that is something that no one here wants to see they did not want to see a preemptive strike against north korea because the risk there of course is that north korea would retaliate by attacking this city meanwhile what actions what military actions has the south been taking since the test and is indeed planning to take kathy. well in direct response to the test in just over five minutes after the launch was first detected south korea launched a live fire drills of its own that was a combined military drill involving the navy the army and the air force launching
5:07 am
three missiles simultaneously to hit a simulated target but so what's known as a show of force trying to send a message to north korea that south korea has the military capability to take out north korea's test launch sites but as i say south korea are really doesn't want to take that option still it in gauges in shows of force and military exercises both on its own and jointly with the united states we heard at the security council russia and china again raising this proposal of a freeze for freeze scenario that would see north korea stopping its nuclear development in exchange for the u.s. and south korea scaling back their annual military exercises but that doesn't seem to be likely to happen in fact there's another round of military exercises jus to go ahead next week south korea's preferred option is still to go ahead with diplomacy to go ahead with added sanctions and pressure it wants to see china doing
5:08 am
more and in fact the leader of south korea's ruling democratic party is on a trip to beijing and she says she intends to raise this with the chinese leadership when she's there elizabeth kathy thank you very much for that is kathy novak joining us live from seoul well let's go to china now and china correspondent adrian brown is joining us from beijing so it's not just south korea that wants china to do more we had from the u.s. ambassador nikki haley at the u.n. security council asking china to cost off the oil seven diplomatic ties how realistic is that adrian would they do those things. no i don't think china has any intention of cutting off the oil or of severing diplomatic relations that said china believes it can contain north korea but you know in the past few days we have an example of how china's influence over the north is really continuing to wane they sent a senior envoy to pyongyang but he didn't get to have
5:09 am
a meeting with the dear leader in the past of course whenever a senior chinese official has gone to the north korean capital he's always been guaranteed a meeting with the dear leader so that in many ways was another slap in the face for china we've had some interesting things actually happening on the border between china and north korea during the past few days it's been reported that the friendship bridge that links north korea and china is going to be closed temporarily in order for repairs to be carried out now this closure was at the request reportedly of the north korean so is another message being sent out there also air china has now stopped direct links between beijing and on yang another sign of sort of incremental sanctions against the north beginning to bite china still believes that in the end sanctions will work we had another telephone conversation late on wednesday night between president xi jinping and president from president from urge the chinese leader to use all leavers to persuade
5:10 am
north korea to stop its testing the readout of the conversation given by the shin one user agency here in china was much rosier it said that washington had thanked president xi jinping for his efforts to try to calm things on the north korea on the korean peninsula so two very different versions emerging from those telephone conversations held on wednesday night is there any concern where you are adrian that president trump could be planning some sort of military action against an off . yes i think those words by the u.s. ambassador at the united nations nikki haley about you know perhaps the united states may have to take some sort of action to disrupt the oil that north korea receives from china will have really caught the attention of china's leaders you know at the moment where north korea you know fires its missiles when it carries
5:11 am
out its test those those missiles are being fired away from china but if there was a feeling a perception in the north that perhaps china and the united states were in a sense on the same side than people in the border regions really worry about what would happen if the north perhaps turned its missiles the other way and pointed them towards china now which we haven't reached that stage yet but sooner or later the feeling here in china anyway is that you know china is going to have to make a decision as to whose side it's really on and chinese people are confused by and large as it would be. i apologize we have lost our connection with our china correspondent adrian brown in beijing there let's move on now the u.a.e. has dismissed allegations by former egyptian prime minister our feet that he's being stopped from traveling to fix as he's being blocked from leaving the u.a.e. after he announced plans to run in egypt's presidential election next year so if he
5:12 am
left egypt after he lost against the muslim brotherhood's mohamed morsi in the two thousand and eleven election there's been a strong critic of egyptian president the father l.c.c. . my fellow egyptian citizens i have announced my intention to run in the presidential election and i was planning to start a tour amongst egyptian communities abroad before going back to egypt in the next few days however i was surprised to find out i'm prevented from leaving the u.a.e. for reasons i don't understand and i'm not willing to understand i've often stated my appreciation for you or you for hosting me however i reject any intervention in egypt furrows by preventing me from participating in a constitutional right now u.s. president donald trump has attacked the british prime minister tories away for her condemnation of her anti islam read tweets trump shared three anti muslim videos from a far right bush group to has more than forty million followers
5:13 am
a spokesman for make or transactions of wrong but within the last hour this is what the u.s. commander in chief replied word choice made don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we are doing fine. well plenty more ahead on the news hour including the trial continue the star witness training relations between turkey and the u.s. . with palestinians comes at a time when israeli pressure on the occupied west bank is growing. career. what we can expect from. time champions for ten.

twenty nine of the fifty four members of argentina security services have been jailed for life for they have all been a massive series of human rights abuses they took place when argentina was under military rule between one nine hundred seventy six and eighty three during that period as thought thousands of people had disappeared in the so-called dirty war reports. these people were disappeared or killed during the dictatorship in argentina more than forty years later their loved ones are finally seen justice done. rights father was one of them. they came and said goodbye to me and then went into hiding because he was a political activist he told me i'm going to fight for your future and for the future of thousands of other children i never saw him again thank the dozens of

people gathered outside this courthouse when a site is to hear the sentences against fifty four former members of security forces among them. known as the angel of death infiltrated human rights groups and had some of their members killed this is the third trial for the crimes committed in one clanger stand attention center during the big. leadership of the navy mechanical school and the tortures and killings that happened there is the largest trial of this kind in argentina's history because it investigated human rights abuses against almost eight hundred people. labor union leaders students and activists were among those who were disappeared some were thrown drug from planes into the river plate or the atlantic ocean those accused say they were fighting a war against the left. but people like. her husband was tortured and disappeared at the navy mechanical school he was a lawyer and
5:16 am
a human rights activist. i still don't know what they did to him i'd like to be up to put a flower on his grave but i can't because i don't know what they did to him they don't speak it's as if there is a pep talk silence among. the trial lasted for five years i period in which at least eleven of those accused passed away. it was a very big trial and the judiciary made it more difficult and handed it in a very slow way in the meantime not only those accused passed away but also some of the relatives of the victims that were hoping to find justice yet many of those on trial were sentenced to life in prison and even though the very day bring some closure more than forty years later many still don't know what happened to their loved ones and hold out little hope of finding their remains. when our side of. let's go back to the united states now the story about u.s.

president donald trump attacking british prime minister tourism a on twitter after she condemned and. tweets tweeted free videos from a far right group let's go to our correspondent rosalind jordan she is joining us live from washington d.c. with more on this trump's tweet roles of the president once again using those words radical islamic terrorism that has been told many times and once again telling that you have a problem with terrorism. that's right and this comes after pretty much a day filled with condemnations from the british government regarding donald trump re tweeting three videos that have been disseminated by the deputy leader of a group known as british first it is known as a far right neo nazi group in the u.k. it recently lost its ability to contest parliamentary elections because it forgot
5:18 am
to pay a fine of course the deputy leader has herself been on twitter thanking donald trump for reach tweeting this material material which has been soundly debunked by a number of groups that follow hate group activity and those laws have been understandably very critical of the presidents. of these videos and they're not the only ones either and what's been the reaction to these tweets. well not only has there been a response from number ten downing the prime minister's official place of business but there's also been this reaction from communities minister sabri job it who is himself a british muslim he basically said that what donald trump has done essentially has
5:19 am
given comfort and aid to people who don't like muslims who don't like people of color people like himself and i'm paraphrasing here and he that he is going to use his position to speak out strongly against what donald trump has done of course it is worth pointing out that right after mr trump was inaugurated it back in late january there was the question of whether he should be invited to london in order to basically be treated to a state visit and at the time minister job it said that he wanted people to keep an open mind he was trying to stand against those who said that the u.k. should not be welcoming donald trump because of his anti muslim anti immigrant policies but because of what is happened in the past twenty four hours there's been a very different tone coming from minister job is essentially saying that mr trump

5:33 am
danger zone have registered at these evacuation centers in bali which means that of course thousands of people are still up there very near to the crater risking their lives because it's been very challenging for the government to persuade them to come down because the situation has been going on for two months already than that than two months ago i met this family who is living actually very near to the crater also they told me back then that their village was completely destroyed by the eruption in one nine hundred sixty three fifty four years ago and they lost like five hundred people in their village. back then told me that five people in her family died because of this power of plastic material that comes of out of month during an eruption and also the rocks and a cold flow of water streaming from the crater as soon as an option takes place by in your mind here is her son in law and he just told me that there's like what he describes as fire rain coming from the crater right now. abbi can that.
5:34 am
be such. a lot to. talk about out of course. he says that. there's a lot of there's a lot of dust coming from the full cane into the village but all. also the stones who are very hot and i actually touch his skin and he told me also that according to the prediction if the eruption would happen the same as in one thousand six hundred three it could mean that in two weeks a very big blow could happen to
5:35 am
a man who can do. a local record as opposed to. exactly that's the pattern that we could see fifty four years ago but the thing is nobody can of course predict the behavior of mount are going because it is a very dangerous and very unpredictable at that time there was no seismographic equipment at the full kaino so nobody could actually measure the whole pattern but there is a still a risk of a very big explosion and that's why the authorities are ordering everyone to leave but of course it's going to be very hard to persuade people to stay in these shelters for weeks or even maybe months because that's how long these eruptions normally take place in the region is very well prepared for the serval canada ruptures because. more than in any other country are here in indonesia and of course they have all the warning systems in place but it's very difficult to live

a plan aimed at eventually allowing the regime drift to return to plan entails refugees staying in temporary camps close to their property and destroyed homes the rangers have suffered decades of persecution they often described as the largest stateless people in the world i'm not sure i know what our main demand is that they recognize us. and then we may go back to. it when you take a look at the various identity cards issued to the region that you begin to understand how vulnerable they are to further violence and discrimination these cards and pieces of paper highlight the kind of problems that the rangers have had for decades in relation to their legal status inside myanmar and they also highlight potential difficulties with respect to their identification if indeed this repatriation plan goes forward this is a citizenship card and it was made available to all ethnic groups including the
5:38 am
ranger after independence now in one thousand nine hundred two citizenship was withdrawn for the ranger it was a few years later that they were issued with this the so-called white card now the word ranger has disappeared from it instead there is written main goal and the religion islam. in twenty fifteen they had to hand these over and they were issued with this receipt now there is no mention of any ethnicity nationality or religion on this receipt it was a few months later that they were issued with these with a similar scant amount of information that the vast majority of ranger refused to ever pick these up from the government bangladeshis already registered hundreds of thousands of refugees living in the camps have those son muhammad with his new id card but the information on it is far from clear. that first they gave us

5:41 am
a great initiative between the african union and european union. leaders on both sides are expected to launch a plan to address the situation by the end of their meeting but the united nations secretary general is due to warn that unless new ideas of found to deal with migration human rights abuses will continue. we will not put an end to the tragedy in the mediterranean if we do not create significant legal migration. opportunities we must also ensure that people can find a dignified future home country this is essential to combat smugglers and traffickers the most horrible criminals of our time. activists say that more must be done to stop young africans leaving home in the first place we have to invest in jobs and employment we have to invest in basic to cover basic needs that's what we need to do and start from migrating but there's always going to be migration and

specially among among some fricken countries as it's always going to be that. there are more than eighty leaders at this summit finding one voice from any issue will never be easy critics say the when it comes to migration they have favored quick fixes rather than long term solutions the question is whether this summit will change that latasha al-jazeera. ivory coast. that the mail has accused the greek government of turning the island into the guantanamo bay of europe thousands of refugees living in squalid conditions and face a harsh winter as john a horrible it's a great government leaders are complaining of a lack of help from the european union. the evenings after the cold. most of the roughly ten thousand refugees and migrants stuck on the island live in the bleak confines of moriah camp no matter what you
