8:04 pm
the scope of the national security is far reaching article 38 says it can essentially target anyone anywhere extradition to children if a child and a maximum sentence of life in prison faces vandalizes of the legislation people were arrested during wednesday's rally for breaking the new normal they were in position of items cooling the hong kong's independence from china police sealed off the area fide the water cannon and tear gas and pepper balls to break up the crowd police say one officer. it was stabbed in the. strategy by police on wednesday it was a cordon off key areas where those protesters had gathered at one high times square i felt like i know much protests rival the radical right the police were still able to mike at least $300.00 arrests. earlier on wednesday the city's chief executive celebrated the handover anniversary of the swift introduction of the new security law kerry was sidelined in the drafting of the script but said it was necessary to restore order and rebuild hong kong's reputation as
8:05 pm
a leading international financial center in asia yet see a lot of the enactment of the national law is regarded as the most significant development in the relationship between the central authorities and hong kong since its return to the motherland in beijing government leaders were doing their best to counter critics who say china's actions marked the end of hong kong's special autonomy the government in beijing says one that is responsible for the former british territory and they want to prevent it becoming a springboard for subversion against china sir clock al-jazeera hong kong well it's week now to our white house correspondent kimberly hellcats kempley what else did the secretary of state mike pompeo have to say about this. yeah well he really is calling out the chinese communist party and concerned that this is going to in terms of article 38 that broad sweeping national security law
8:06 pm
that it's going to have an impact on americans but all residents of hong kong essential in his words they will be subjected to the whims of the party elites that the rule of law has been eviscerated the big concern for the united states is how broadly defined this law can be that americans living in hong kong could potentially be caught up and even prosecuted accused of doing just normal everyday business even with friends and family back in the united states and so that's why the united states and the secretary of state announcing that the united states is issuing a business advisory and what this means is essentially it is discouraging american companies and companies around the world essentially from doing business particularly with companies in china that may have ties to forced labor of violate human rights that they will be discouraged from doing business this is going out to a number of american agencies this trade business advisory and the united states also saying that they plan on more in terms of counter measures being done and
8:07 pm
clearly all of this of course adds to an already to tary orating relationship between the 2. absolutely it's been going on for say even years but just this week we should point out that the united states once again flagged its grave concern to the treatment of chinese muslim weaker women the fact that that is been revealed there have been forced sterilizations that have been taking place calling on the united nations to sort of call out these human rights abuses and we should also point out that it was just last week or so that the united states imposed visa restrictions on chinese communist party officials because of the concern for the undermining of hong kong's autonomy so this is a series of escalations that they say has to do with the concerns about the rule of law in hong kong but we should also point out this is an administration looking for someone to blame for the decimated u.s. economy as

8:09 pm
without to boo about this relationship and the inference is from france's foreign minister is that perhaps some of turkey's actions recently simply aren't compatible with what he would see as values shorey of the draw for example says that france believes that turkey is fueling instability in libya by importing francaise syrian fighters into the country in fact this echoes words from president mack rock who just earlier this week on tuesday said he had a criminal responsibility in libya for its actions are very strong words indeed from france are looking for eve foreign ministers to perhaps come up with some sort of new idea of a relationship with turkey going forward certainly are joy of a g r has suggested that the e.u. should baps consider imposing more sanctions on turkey for the time being there are
8:10 pm
sanctions from the e.u. on turkey over and or oil drilling dispute because there's a situation now what else is behind the sorry relations between paris and ankara. well the relations between the 2 countries have been soured for several years now particularly between presidents and crawl but of course the world war of words certainly stepped up a few weeks ago when earlier this month france claimed the one of its naval ships which is taking part in a nato operation in the mediterranean sea a security operation there france said that that shape was aggressed by a turkish warship now turkey denies those claims nevertheless france has taken its complaint to nato to both nato members and france is pressing they dated to perhaps take some sort of action well it seems as if nato hasn't acted fast enough for

a horrible details of torture inside the facility is different in an office full of prison facilities detainees since 2016 until now. they are in a very bad situation and even when covert 19 just a period in yemen we were very scared and we pushed that the detainees who should be released because we also have done research about the situation offer detention centers and different given rates and we know it's it's a horrible situation and if the court in $1000.00 just started with one case in any detention facility so it's going to be a disaster for all day to nice that's why it's very urgent that all parties of the conflict should release those data needs and the news ahead. stalin osce the un's cultural agency warns its logo is being used illegally. and
