missed the runway and burst into flames in a nearby field. this president has blocked singapore to make a broad comes broad comes bid to take over u.s. rival. on grounds of national security donald trump said he had evidence the proposed one hundred seventeen billion dollar takeover pose a security threat and presidential order puts an end to what would have been the largest technological tail in history einstein as chief analyst for digital services at i.c.l. japanise an i.t. research and pfizer firm he joins us on skype from take it so has this blog come as something of a surprise no i actually think that this move was widely expected we've seen many companies that want to acquire tech terms in the u.s. particularly from china not being able to do so with weiwei and with ali baba so no
7:18 am
i would say that this move was actually rather expected ok do you think then that it's warranted is this about protecting national security or is it for commercial reasons so i don't think that this is so much linked to national security broadcom has you know a lot of ties to singapore i think this is commercially related. being one of the major producers of five g. chips or about the launch of five g. networks starting this year and so for those reasons i would say that this is wired to be commercially driven ok they really does send us a clear message doesn't it the us is not open for business. i think that that is much truer than it was a few years ago as i said you know not only this deal but also you know ali baba being very expressed told that it can't get into the financial services markets in the united states and also chinese handset vendors are being told to back off from
7:19 am
doing deals with u.s. carriers so i think that that statement is a lot truer today than it was a few years ago why did broken want to buy call come in the first place well as i mentioned we have five g. coming broadcom had acquired this would have made the third largest chip vendor in the world after intel and samsung there's a lot of enthusiasm about what five g. networks are going to do and also something called the internet of things where we're seeing more chipsets being put into everything from from cows to cars to clothing so you know this this market is very exciting in is expected to grow very quickly in the near future so it's exciting market but does this move concern the tech industry are we saying the world becoming less globalized or more nationalized i think that that is a concern you know particularly between the u.s. and china and i think that we will see you know less and less of these cross border
7:20 am
deals concerning these two countries in the near future ok guys i can speak to you thanks very much for joining us here is president donald trump has repeated assertions by republican members of the house intelligence committee that they found no evidence of collusion between the two hundred sixteen trunk campaign and russia but the top house and senate democrats as dispirited they claim saying there is clear evidence that russia tried to help trump in the run up to the vote john hendren has more from washington d.c. . the house intelligence committee on capitol hill as ended its russia investigation that committee concluded after listening to seventy three witnesses and reading three hundred thousand documents that there was no collusion between the campaign of donald trump and the government of russia the republican leadership vacuum maybe because there were active measures taken by the russians to interfere in the election but they disagreed with us intelligence officials saying that that was not done to aid donald trump and they say that while donald trump jr and jared
7:21 am
cushion are the president's son in law and aide both met with a russian lawyer in june of two thousand and sixteen that was just bad judgment that was not collusion so as that investigation winds down the independent investigation of special counts or robert mueller has ramped up he has already indicted thirteen russians in absentia and several top u.s. officials none of those people was interviewed by that house committee and some of the people who were interviewed gave very little information democrats were incensed joaquin castro on that committee called it a stunning betrayal of the american people and the top democrat on that committee adam schiff called it a capitulation saying that republicans placed the interests of protecting the president over protecting the country so this investigation will go on independently but in the house intelligence committee it is over and it's for roll
7:22 am
call the newspaper specializing in reporting from capitol hill he says the committee findings are not surprising. it looks like there is a lot of partisanship at play here as there has been throughout this process with the house intelligence committee what i think we saw today particularly because the summary was released at least a one page summary before either adam schiff and the democrats on that committee were able to review the findings and also before they've been able to go through a declassification review process where folks at the intelligence agencies going to chance to to go through the report and scrub it for potential items of national security interest the fact that this was put out now in this way is interesting because they also disagreed with some of the findings of the intelligence community and they really wanted to get that out there i guess if there were house

republicans and since nasa has really satellite images said to show a man miles military building and for structure and areas one's home to a hinge and muslims as described the construction as a land grab they while the u.n. is accused man miles government of using a policy of force starvation against her hands until it is just tired reports. life continues to be a misery at this rigid refugee camp in eastern bangladesh many of those who live here say they just want to go back to their homes in myanmar's rakhine state but if you are certain if they ever will what's also unclear is whether they will ever see justice for the abuses the feast abuses the u.n. describes as bearing the hallmarks of genocide there appears to be a policy of forced starvation and place designed to make life in northern rock kind unsustainable for a hunter who remain. amnesty international is also questioning whether the more than seven hundred thousand written injured displaced in months of violence will

7:25 am
evicted to make way for an army base we're witnessing a genocide in real time the mistreatment of the rich by me and my military and me and mas authorities surely meets the criteria to be considered a genocide and we actually need to see sanctions back on the table this should be visa bans for the pipa trite as all of these atrocities and that should include not just the military but it should should should include the civilian authorities of me and the me and maher government doesn't deny bulldozing the remains of the wreckage of villages in recent months but says it did so to make way for the new homes for returning refugees u.n. investigators say it's been difficult to ascertain what's happening in rakhine state because it has largely been sealed off from them rights groups and the media in al-jazeera. yes and wintle as a story and in southeast asian affairs he says the satellite images prove the military campaign was deliberate well i think it it points for
7:26 am
a long that this thing has been choreographed by the military me and my military if you go back to the end of august when some. rebel what he would want to call them launched pretty small scale attacks in two stations the response from the. military was massive totally out of proportion but wharton that it turns out that they had been a buildup of troops within wreckin state which is where was the thing from the beginning of all was now we're faced with what's called after all these working and they'd be mass exodus as before but this is on a scale into two and no it turns out that they are building on the land which has been deserted who things have been going out for and again it looks as if it's part of a premeditated picture a new un who are humanitarian coordinator of a yemen is pledging to do more to help the millions of people facing starvation

often disregard the human toll the psychological toll on individuals i believe in the catalytic power of art for social change i believe art allows us to question authority to rebel to provoke to elicit a certain response and i really believe that art also allows us to call for justice this wall is a symbol of resistance an act of defiance almost but also of unity solidarity within the community this wasn't to separate the swallows and to keep anyone out this wall is to do the opposite to represent to show to engage people. as ours are the. as are our top stories the u.s. has backed preston's assessment that russia was likely was sponsible for the poisoning of a former spy and his daughter in southern england more than a week ago the british government says gania script attacks using
