nuclear test site it's not believed to have been another weapons test diplomatic editor james bays has the latest from the united nations democratic people's republic of korea this was the podium with. president trump threatening to totally destroy north korea now it was time for the country's top diplomat to give his blistering reply. due to his lack of basic common knowledge and proper sentiment he tried to insult the supreme dignity of my country by referring to it as a rocket by doing so however he committed an irreversible mistake of making our rockets visit to the entire us mainland inevitable all the more none other than trump himself is on a suicide mission this clearly rankled the north koreans rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself the foreign minister kamal quipped with nicknames of his own. u.s.g.a.

mara online the person who is just even by american says commander in grief lion king president evil is holding the seat of the us presidency and the dangerous reality that the gambler who grew old using threats frauds and all other schemes to acquire a patch of land holds the nuclear button these are what constitute the grave threat to international peace and security today. north korea has proved once again it won't back down in five days of diplomacy in new york this crisis has got worse not better diplomats feel the situation is dangerous the insults being hurled may sound like schoolyard language but the u.s. has carried out a show of force with jets and bombers flying close to north korea's eastern coast and there's talk of north korea carrying out an atmospheric nuclear test that's a dangerous proposition which will be conducted in the pacific ocean unlike the
5:04 am
previous six nuclear tests which were contained underground the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists who had a rare meeting with a north korean foreign minister after his speech has warned there's now a real risk of miscalculation leading to conflict james phase out zero of the united nations or kathy novak in the south korean capital forest cafe someone usually strong words from the north korean foreign minister in the united nations they're just ramping up the rhetoric yet again. absolutely and in response to donald trump's words referring to kim jong un and the insults against the leader in north korea are taken extremely seriously people inside north korea would never speak ill of kim jong un fearing death if they did so we've had this week of exchange of rhetorics ramping up this kind of talk and the fear here in south korea is what happens next we heard the north korean foreign minister suggesting that
5:05 am
when kim jong un was talking about making gunnell trump pay dearly that perhaps north korea could be considering as james bays referred to there detonated in detonation of a hydrogen bomb in the pacific we've seen the show of force with the u.s. flying bombers off the east coast of north korea and coming up in the coming week south korea's marking its armed forces day it is expected to unveil some strategic weapons to the public and there are some dates coming up in the coming weeks and next month between south korea and the u.s. the u.s. is expected to send an aircraft carrier strike group to waters near the korean peninsula and we've heard for weeks now from the south korean government that it remains on alert for another missile launcher a nuclear test from north korea and that a particularly looks out at a specific specific important dates in north korea and one of them is coming up on october the tenth north korea will be marking the anniversary of the founding of
5:06 am
its workers party so the tension is likely to just remain high here in the coming weeks. threats from north korea are really nothing new as far as south korea is concerned we've talked about this before that many south koreans disregard this as part of their daily lives but as i mentioned before of course these are very strong words from north korea in the united nations south koreans reacting to this latest development. well i think as you mentioned south korea's do take this sort of in their stride they are used to an exchange of rhetoric between north korea the u.s. and its allies they've been technically at war with north korea for decades but there's been some movement basically at the top of the key players here you have the change in leadership in the united states donald trump talking much tougher than we would have seen in the previous administration threatening military options against north korea and then here in south korea there was also
5:07 am
a change of leadership mungy in was elected to office with this platform of more engagement perhaps dialogue with north korea he now says under the current circumstances dialogue is impossible but when he spoke to the united nations he was really pushing forward this message of peace when we have donald trump and the north korean foreign minister and indeed kim jong un issuing his own statement and all of them ramping up that rhetoric what it was trying to say is that there must be a peaceful solution that there will not be another war here on the korean peninsula specifically what he mentioned being concerned about is accidental a military exchange of fire that perhaps there's a bit of a miscalculation when they're all there's all of this tough rhetoric that perhaps one side might misread the other and that will cause a military clash that no one wants and that is likely to have an effect here in south korea. thanks very much indeed for us back coalition of coalition arab

the kurds who are ruling or in control of the city that is there is a lot of resentment directed towards them from the arab population in the area who've accused them in the past of trying to change them a graphic make up of those areas in order to pave the way for future kurdish autonomous entity if it was bashar assad's troops the government troops who are in control but obviously also there is a lot of opposition to him because this seven year bloody civil war started with a revolution erupting against him and obviously the opposition factions themselves who are opposed to both the kurdish groups and. since forces aren't exactly united amongst themselves so whilst there will be a lot of celebration amongst some sections hailing the victory of iraq and expelling i saw that doesn't necessarily mean that it will usher in and immediately right or a more stable more peaceful situation in the area of syria turkey's parliament has
5:10 am
renewed a bill allowing military intervention in iraq and syria is being seen as a final warning against the kurdish independence referendum vote on monday turkey's prime minister banally yielded and has called the vote a mistake anderson. ns has more from the turkish city of there back here. more forces have now been deployed on turkey's border with iraq it's no coincidence this exercise started in the run up to the iraqi kurds referendum on independence turkey's parliament has now approved the extension of an existing mandate for military intervention in iraq one of several options the details of which have yet to be disclosed. and. the steps will be taken in close cooperation with iraq iran and other neighboring countries these measures will have diplomatic political economic and security dimensions the tension has tempered excitement among turkey's minority kurdish population here india but care where there's been
5:11 am
violence and dissent for decades many kurds feel weary and anxious about the future the ancient walls of the old city along with temporary fencing mark out no go areas in some poor districts security operations have involved houses being demolished it follows a move by the kurdish armed group ekk to bring the long running conflict to urban areas as a result kurds who have no connection to the violence have lost their homes while history hasn't treated the kurds at all kindly there are underlying fears here that a referendum in iraq on the dream of independence could present more nightmares and for some here they've had enough nightmares for a lifetime but magnet dar is defiant he's refusing to move from his home that's earmarked for demolition and he's turned down compensation he believes it's right
5:12 am
to have the iraqi referendum now. thank you. mikey i'm in favor of the referendum as kurds we should have our rights here the turkish state puts pressure on us oppressing us i even consider moving to iraq now but. aside from the demolition there are teams now working on urban regeneration projects in the city that's home to around a million kurds but there's a real danger though there's an independent spoke by kurds next door in iraq may prove to be more of a hindrance than a help. andrew symonds al jazeera. the spanish government has placed cattle on police under its come on in another bid to try to block next weekend's independence referendum leaders have opposed the move calling it an unacceptable interference by madrid john hendren has more from barcelona.
5:13 am
a standoff in catalonia just got more tense and potentially far more volatile the interior minister of spain's catalan province says local police will not take orders from spain and once again we denounce the government's intention to take control of the catalan police the catalan government does not accept the intervention of the state he says that was the message he and catalans police chief delivered to the spanish interior minister in a meeting on saturday what we see here is not a technical. see is a political maneuver the spanish government is trying to take control of because of the police because the spanish government has vowed its voters that the referendum the fund referendum will not take place catalonia leaders insist they will carry out an october first referendum asking voters whether to separate from spain spanish president marianna calls that vote illegal and says he will stop it. the most sensible the most reasonable and the most democratic thing to do is to stop
5:14 am
they should say there is no referendum they know there isn't going to be one. spain has arrested and released senior catalan government employees instead in three to four thousand national police and civil defense forces to stop the vote spain can no longer count on those seventeen thousand regional bullies known as marceau's and that sets up a potential conflict between two armed forces with very different goals for the national police charged with shutting down the referendum and the more so to see their duty as protecting the rights of catalans making matters worse the spanish troops are housed in four ships off the coast of catalonia and boycotting local port workers refused to dock the ships as spanish delegate in catalonia says spain is not trying to control the most just to coordinate with them but i don't know if what we have is a not a substitution of the roles of the police they keep their role as far as population
5:15 am
security goes however they will be helped by dissident guards and national police and they will be coordinated by the interior ministry the muscles have long been criticized for not cracking down on the referendum now it's not at all clear whose side they will be on john hendren al jazeera barcelona. but about ahead in the news hour including more allegations that all hinge advantages are still being burned in myanmar state. germany's main candidates wrap up their election campaigns ahead of sunday's vote. what you love to see one of these n.f.l. owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a the field right now. u.s. president donald trump attacks n.f.l. players who've been silently protesting against a racial injustice and find out what he had to say with santa is for.

5:17 am
a leg injury then surely before eight a.m. local time a six point two magnitude aftershock sent everyone running from the teetering rubble the new quake centered about seven hundred kilometers away halted the rescue operations for about half an hour each minute his counts and volunteers marking their arms with names and blood types as a precaution continue to work without rest you know one of their. own asli i'm tired but what i'm feeling is nothing compared to what the people trapped inside are feeling it can't be compared rescuers believe perhaps six people are still alive under the debris a crane removed a significant portion of the fourth floor once an accounting firm underneath a list of more than forty names of those who are still missing their family members have set up a makeshift camp the family's sleeping here now for more than four nights living off the generosity of strangers who've been bringing food and words of comfort
5:18 am
they're clinging to hope even as the hours pass is just. the idea that my niece is still alive. gives a strength not just her but all the people inside the building was sure she and everyone else will be rescued a lawyer while some families put on a brave face others cannot hide their anguish each moment of waiting an eternity i spoke with a rescuer from israel who said that his team thinks it's still going to be many hours before it finally makes physical contact with these possible survivors but he says he has said that since hour one and now stretching on past hour one hundred nothing has shaken his feet are still signs of life under the rubble and that is what's motivating everyone here the rescuers the families and the community members to continue their job. emergency services in puerto rico are grappling with the

scale of the devastation left by hurricane maria the storm hit the u.s. territory on wednesday bringing widespread flooding and strong winds towns are still without running water fuel power and phone services but it is now a category three storm and it's making its way towards the bahamas the storm cut a swathe of destruction through the caribbean. has more from one of the islands which has been hit. we're here on the island nation of st lucia and it's a staging place for aid operations in to domenica the island of domenico is completely destroyed the situation is very bad there nearly a week after hurricane maria hit that island nation it remains essential he cut off from the outside world in many ways we've heard reports that u.s. military helicopters are flying over the island and literally plucking people to safety to get them evacuated some of the ferries are now just starting to run from
5:20 am
dominique back here to st lucia and other areas again bringing people for the first time off the island and in to some safety now tony because prime minister roosevelt skerritt spoke to the united nations on saturday and he described the situation is in his country like this. old building roofless a water pipes. on route infrastructure destroyed oh hospital is with. and schools have disappeared beneath the rubble scare it was also very clear on what he says is the underlying issue that caused the hurricanes that have destroyed his country. i was dominant the brunt of climate change i repeat we have shown or in the consequences of the actions of autos. actions that indian
5:21 am
joe very existence the situation on is beyond desperate the island nation is home to about seventy one thousand people but many don't many kids live abroad in other countries and they've been trying to reach out to see what's happening with their relatives if they're ok if their houses are destroyed and also even if they're still alive. the head of the un's refugee agency has been meeting a hinge of refugees in bangladeshi camps. says he's shocked by what he calls the terrible violence inflicted on the minority group from me in long over the past month and more than four hundred twenty thousand have escaped the violence in me and by fleeing to bangladesh the influx of into buying that actually is hurting local businesses in the border districts of cox's bazaar has been speaking to market vendors in the town here. to buy their.
5:22 am
food and vegetables and it's around this market that. have set up camp with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of people and you informal economy has. that's particularly popular among these. there used to build the homes to protect them from the rain inside the camp. so he's saying that business is going as well as. the government are distributing plastic sheeting for free and therefore he's not getting as much business as. this is the home of
5:23 am
a bangladeshi family right around the corner from the refugee camp and look at their home it's made out of the same plastic sheeting that you find inside the camps in fact the circumstances of the refugees and of the bangladeshis living here are very similar the difference is the refugees get international aid these people depend on their government for help and most here live on less than two dollars a day the biggest challenge is that the help that's coming through doesn't build that resentment rangers have been coming here for decades persecution and the relationship between local bangladeshi and there. hasn't always been easy. well scott heiler isn't mean mars largest city jangling far across the border there scott what is the view of the situation given the amount of international coverage there has been of this crisis. we're it's very interesting we've
5:24 am
been traveling throughout the center part here of myanmar over the last several days in mandalay the second largest city here in myanmar and then obviously now here in yangon the largest city and speaking with some people last night now when you look at what's happening in myanmar since this were hinge a crisis started about a month ago it seems as though it feels as though and speaking to many people there is a kind of a slide toward nationalism that people here feel as though a lot of the criticism internationally is something that they need to be prompting them to kind of draw together we've been seeing more and more kind of pro-government rallies the media for the most part has really been toeing the government line when it comes to their hinge crisis now it's very interesting you know it's the people here still do have access to international media but they still are really focusing more believing more if you will the narrative pro-government narrative that's coming out from most of the media here rob so it's very instant you talk to people and for the most part that's how they feel they
5:25 am
feel as though they're being criticized their feeling is that you know the government line that has been the government line for decades that they were hinged are illegal migrants from bangladesh for the most part a lot of people feel that in their bar are believing that narrative from the government even though they see these numbers and things there is some sympathy that it's expressed for those refugees but they really kind of stick to the idea that these are hinged had been in the country illegally for decades. a couple of days ago we saw the bangladeshi prime minister sheikh hasina to the united nations general assembly calling for an investigation into what's happening to the engine but also calling for the return of the hand job back to me and mark do you get a sense that that would be welcomed by me a more. i think it will be interesting it's something that's going to be a massive challenge for the government here on songs to cheese government now this is something she said in her big first speech directly dealing with the issue last tuesday that was one of the main things that came out of that speech and she said
5:26 am
there will be those who came from myanmar will be able to return to myanmar. it's kind of this process she said that will start clearly that's going to be very very difficult when you have you know already a situation of a refugee camp before this last month right across the border into bangladesh four hundred thousand plus people over just entering just over the last couple of weeks so the paperwork in the process is going to take a long time and i know that in the last couple of weeks she met with the committee to look into how that process is going to going to unfold but you know we don't really see any movement on the ground right now right now for that like other centers being set up to process these people coming back into the villages and also their you know a lot of these villages were burned to the ground is has there been any building are they going to be going back to scorched earth what are they going to be returning to are they going to be returning to i.d.p. camps are they going to be returning to those villages so a lot of work needs to be done on that i think right now the for the most part to me and more people are are believing what the government is saying that the process
5:27 am
will start there will be a process but we haven't seen really any kind of logistical moves that that process is going to start anytime soon scott had a live person young and thank you very much indeed. still ahead on al-jazeera. thousands rally in paris a day off to the french president signs his labor reforms into law. on thousands evacuated on the resort island of bali as rumblings sparked fears of a possible volcano eruption and in sports team europe paraded roger federer and rafael nadal on day two of them have a cup find out how they got along. from dusky sunsets if you spring savannah. to sunrise atop an asian metropolis. welcome back across much of southern china in taiwan the

weather conditions are fairly quiet at the moment being see this massive cloud moving away from the philippines being very wet here the last twenty four to forty eight hours and that whole system is going to move further towards the west towards high now and eventually into parts of northern vietnam hong kong too will be on the northern edge of that system so heavy showers are likely so as move the forecaster into monday you can see that system getting into vietnam also some heavy rain the on the along the yangtze river valley further south though for taipei it may be rather cloudy but it should be largely dry for southeastern parts of asia generally we've got to find conditions across much of the philippines for the time being scattered showers across borneo and then some showers begin to push in across java and bali so bit of a change there through the midday potential we have bright conditions for singapore in kuala lumpur once we get into thailand looks pretty wet weather conditions extending across much of cambodia and southern vietnam into south asia and we still
5:29 am

5:30 am
that. might. be an overreaction. at the operational costs. by contrast. you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour north korea's foreign minister has launched a scathing attack against donald trump at the u.n. general assembly calling him the biggest threat to world peace it happened the same day the u.s. long range bombers flew along the north's coastline and a show of force. turkey's parliament approves
5:31 am
a bill allowing its military to intervene in iraq and syria and head of the kurdistan independence referendum the move is seen as a final warning to iraqi kurds to call off the vote on monday. a six point two magnitude earthquake has forced mexicans back on to the streets the aftershock is a setback for rescue efforts following tuesday's quake that killed at least three hundred people. syria's foreign minister claims a military victory for the assad government is now within reach why did more of them use his united nations address to update world leaders on the six year conflict forces have been accused of carrying out atrocities targeting civilians and using banned chemical weapons one of them has denied the claims and has criticized the u.s. led coalition. in the so-called international
5:32 am
coalition led by the u.s. which was created three years ago to allegedly fight terrorist groups such as eisel has killed many more innocent syrians mostly women and children the terrorists and has destroyed vital infrastructure that syrians have worked for years to build it is also used phosphorous bombs and other internationally prohibited weapons before the eyes of. the syrian foreign minister also told the un general assembly hopes the deescalation zones well how to bring about a cessation of hostilities but he said damascus was the right to respond to any violation of those areas where i was and jordan has more from the united nations. the syrian foreign minister walid muallem was defiant in his address before the un general assembly on saturday not only did argue that syria is about to win the six year long civil war against the military and political opposition he also argued that syria is about to win the war for its reputation on the international stage
5:33 am
especially in the face of challenges raised by countries such as the united states and syria has fully eliminated its chemical program this is enough proof that there is an ill conceived intention to tarnish the real image of the syrian government in the international public and come up with new excuses to continue the aggression against syria in favor of terrorists and their supporters this was the case when the united states blatantly attacked air base claiming that it contained chemical weapons used in the alleged. shape who knew. him as of course numerous investigations including those from the un the us and the u.k. have found that syria may well have committed crimes against humanity and commit war crimes against its own people including using sarin gas against of people living in college earlier in twenty seventeen. well how much a car is a professor of conflict resolution at george mason university he's also the author
5:34 am
of what is enlightenment continuity all wrapped up in the wake of the out of uprisings and he's joining us live now from washington d.c. thank you once again for being with us do you think that the foreign minister is right to suggest that victory is within reach for the assad regime. i think the speech. of power politics and to convince the world community by the studies squawk in recent months that the syrian military has made. gains in various territories within syria and now we have heard this mood here in frame one of them turning to them so the syrian speech was constructed within this go in counterterrorism dime as if all the opposition forces
5:35 am
within syria and outside syria part of this in a terrorist community that is targeting syrians as well as the rest of the world so i think it is a mix of issues a political violence a resistance opposition and counter terrorism that cannot be put under the same number of the same time i think the syrians the syrian officials and the must course have relied heavily on their russian and iranian support to the extent that they believe they can impose this new study of school and just ignore the rest of the humanitarian and political crises for the last six years it was interesting that he directed a lot of his comments against the united states and its actions within syria and yet as we were just reporting earlier it was a u.s. backed coalition of kurdish and arab fighters were says it's retaken around ninety
5:36 am
percent of isis capital in syria in rockets so there is a strange kind of balancing act there if it's supposed to be the syrian regime is supposed to be fighting terrorism and yet at the same time criticizing the people that are also supposed to be fighting terrorism. well i've fully from the very beginning for at least the last three years i've been saying that when we try to address the complexity of the conflict in syria facing four crises within one bit is the human ear in crisis political crisis with the regime should stay in power or should be kicked away we have also the diplomatic crisis with video and efforts unfortunately whether we look at the geneva process or the surrogate lover of john kerry process neither of them has achieved much on the ground then we have another crisis that is now holding all the syrians hostile which is the new cold war regional cold war between the iranians deterrents the saudis and we have this
5:37 am
region that is now pushed towards some settling old scores with various rivals and of course mr mildly has some logic within his political doctrine to target who ever is seeing in the counter a song before or he is bringing an issue of a humanitarian this is city or a way of exiting this conflict without maintain in the study score so whatever is not part of this study score that is. in obion over the by syria with the with the help of all the studies it is not acceptable so it's a matter of the discourse that is now being given some steroids from moscow from the heron and unfortunately it's no go in march because there is still the question how we can solve the crisis without pushing for more militarization and use of
5:38 am
them so in other words the military solution is not the solution no matter what and i think the syrian conflict is poised to become a protracted conflict for years maybe decades to come mohamed sarkari thank you very much indeed for your opinion. sidings foreign minister has addressed the ongoing blockade against scott and his united nations address he says the position taken by the four states is to demand doha follow the principles of international law in combating terrorism the second secretary of the qatari mission to the un rebutted those claims. to those countries that accuse qatar of supporting terrorism we say you need to follow our example the state of qatar has fully implemented security council resolutions this record has been amended and a number of united nations reports these reports stressed the constructive role
5:39 am
that cats are is paying to support the un in sustaining peace in providing humanitarian and developmental assistance which paves the way to sustainability and contributes to rooting out terrorism saudi arabia's foreign minister also defended his country's military intervention claiming it had no choice i don't. know was forced to assess the yemeni government against iran back one thousand fighters the conflict has caused a humanitarian crisis which he says his country is committed to ending. this was not a choice for us in yemen it followed sustained political left most to preserve safety stability territorial integrity as well its independence and we reaffirm our full support for the political process in yemen and we will stand by the side of the u.n. special envoy to arrive at a political solution in saudi arabia is aware of the humanitarian suffering of our brothers and we have and we have spared no effort to come to the help of yemenis

german voters will go to the polls for a general election that could see chancellor angela merkel win a fourth term a third of voters are still undecided feeling uncertainty about what kind of coalition could emerge from the vote buckles main challenger martin schulz has urged germans to boycott the far right a f d party. it's expected to enter parliament for the first time since the end of world war two canes been following the final day of campaigning in berlin. with voting now imminent the politicians make the final push for votes for angle americal there was a chance to meet her party's younger activists and thank them for their work but also to spell out why she wants to remain chancellor for the next four years. yeah but. we think of the future which is especially important in the eyes of young people and it's important that we also address the issue of social justice but it's equally important to talk about how we can work to achieve our prosperity i think
5:41 am
we have found a good balance and then it was on to her home state where the photo opportunity was with a medical team teaching resuscitation techniques but if anything needs reviving it's her rivals campaign the social democrat candidate martin schultz has crisscrossed the country these past weeks but from the start polls have suggested he and his party are less popular than merkel in hers his last election rally was in his home state where his message was about the need for greater social justice i mean. we don't want to focus on the bad side of this country when you make germany better we make it more just that's the difference between them and us the final opinion polls might make grim reading for his party the social democrats face the prospect of one of their worst ever results while the christian democrats have a commanding lead the closest race seems to be for third place which in germany's
5:42 am
proportional electoral system can be a pivotal position of the building coalitions if the polls are right more than one in ten german voters may opt for the far right alternative for germany although no other party will work with this party its lead candidate is taking nothing for granted because as new of your photo you can. only represent a different view on questions of principle and so there will finally be a lively exchange in parliament again that's a reason for the parliament to be the result of society and that's why the want to get in there. after six weeks of campaigning there's nothing more the politicians can do to shape this election now the decision rests with more than sixty million voters who do they want to represent them in this parliament dominic kane al-jazeera berlin. thousands of demonstrators have been rallying in paris against changes to france's labor laws president emanuel approved the sweeping reforms on
