6:03 am
trump then told reporters this we disagreed on what you look at the iran deal i think it's terrible i guess it was ok i wanted he's a regular to something he felt a little bit differently so we were not really thinking the same looking back it's clear trump and tillerson disagreed on the big problems of the day whether or not to engage directly with north korea how far to hold russia accountable brit's meddling in u.s. political and civic affairs something tillerson made a point of stressing the u.s. must do ultimately former u.s. diplomats say taylor since firing is no surprise and neither is the choice of his replacement the cia director mike pompei oh he's well known for his support of trumps policy trump is impulsive and trump is temperamental trump wants. once

a former assistant secretary of state for east asian and pacific affairs and former ambassador to south korea he says it was clear trump until her son we're not seeing eye eye to. certainly people have been expecting this for a long time really rumors back him over of the november december and people thought maybe he would wait for his first anniversary office which are a bit enough in february but frankly speaking it was it was absolutely inevitable and i think the big problem was that president trump wants people who. instinctively agree with him and so still listen who is and his own share of problems at the state department i can assure you there are not too many people in the state department who read seeing him go but he was very clear with president trump that he didn't approve of some of the things he was doing he felt that we were on the right track with north korea especially sanctions program and so we
6:06 am
thought we should continue that and then all of a sudden president drop announces that he's going to meet with kim jong and so i think to some extent it was a last straw there are other issues as well of course tillerson became more and more strong on the issue of dealing with russia and i think clearly the president didn't agree with. good morning on the woman who is set to take over the cia in haskell but she could face a tough confirmation hearing in the senate getting past allegations she oversaw the torture of detainees pedicle heinous more from washington. gina has spent most of her career at the cia undercover so there isn't much video of her but issue prepares to try and take the top job or we're going to see a lot more of her and hear much more about her past she was in charge of the facility in thailand codenamed detention site green the senate has detailed what happened to captors there like abu zubaida he was water boarded eighty three times
6:07 am
beaten by having his head slammed into a wall deprived of sleep for days he was kept in a coffin sized box possibly with insects for more than eleven days and held in a small box less than a meter tall for twenty nine hours the report also says that. he was held and tortured at the same site according to reports she was clearly in charge according to one cia cable quote only the detention site green chief of base would be allowed to interrupt or stop an interrogation process and that the chief of base would be the final decision making authority as to whether the cia's interrogation techniques applied to zubeida would be discontinued. zubaida had to be revived once after waterboarding torture didn't stop human rights groups are outraged by her nomination the idea that she would be put in charge of the cia should send. shimmers terrorists are most people who care about international law this is

a woman who was complicit directly in the torture of to detainees in thailand and then the chief of staff of the counterterrorism center back lushington as they rendered dozens and dozens of other detainees some of them merely innocent people who were swept up shall have to answer for more than that there were videos of some of that torture has reportedly signed the directive to have them destroyed all of this will be a big debate when she comes before the surge to try and get confirms democrats will be under pressure not to vote for her and if that's the case you can only afford to lose one republican vote and still get the job still president donald trump is sending a message with this nomination just like he said on the campaign trail he's fine with torture and also apparently fine with promoting those involved with it. al jazeera washington russia has defied an ultimatum from the u.k. over the poisoning of a former spy prime minister theresa may have given moscow till the end of tuesday

russian foreign minister said britain was being obstructive refusing to give russia samples of the nerve agent so that it could carry out its own investigation you know russia is not guilty but russia is ready to cooperate in the framework of the chemical weapons convention only when the united kingdom takes pains to fulfill their legal obligations are clinging to the same document that was the london's luxury properties luxury shops could britain target russians who spend money here an anti corruption group estimates more than a billion dollars of suspicious russian wealth is invested in u.k. property well it's certainly the case that some of the individuals that we've identified in this research are well known to the kremlin so if they were to find themselves subjected to police investigations by unexplained well for days for example then that would send a very clear message to the kremlin the corrupt individuals and their illicit cash
6:11 am
no longer welcome here british politicians want to send a message to russia that they won't tolerate what they see as a brazen attack on british soil but they also hope to cooperate with russia on issues like containing iran and north korea's nuclear ambitions in other words russia's international significance presents britain with a diplomatic dilemma britain says it's ready to act but if this crisis escalates western unity could come under great strain to be phillips al jazeera. marks mccoskey is a senior fellow at the atlantic council says the u.k. has several options on how to respond to russia's lack of cooperation. you know i think the u.k. government is coming to a critical crossroads they understand that in the past they may not have acted in response as robustly as they should have because they obviously are now a target of a new attack and as a result they're going to want to try to prevent this from happening again so one i think they're looking very seriously at economic sanctions against russia similar
6:12 am
to the united states magnitsky law that could target corrupt and human rights violators from the russian federation to obviously they're going to look potentially at expelling russian diplomats and intelligence officers from the embassy again that likely won't be enough and three they're likely to take this issue to multilateral institutions like the united nations nato and the e.u. with cooperation with u.k. allies to present a case that russia serves as a threat to u.k. interests and western interests and respond appropriately which which they should do british counterterrorism place are investigating the death of a high profile russian businessman that the law was found dead in london his home on tuesday and granted political asylum in the u.k. and was a close ally of late or as a prominent critic of president vladimir putin police say there is no evidence to suggest a link to the poisoning of secor scruple and his daughter. former south korean

6:14 am
damaged seven people were lightly injured. and his delegation pressed on to the water project where he said the attack would only make him more determined to return. they blew up three of our cars on entering the gaza strip this proves to you one hundred percent that it will not prevent us from continuing our path putting an end to this division. or to come to. that but that division between the palestinian authority dominated by fatah and its political rival hamas in gaza was once again on full display the palestinian president's office accused hamas of responsibility for the attack given its continued control of security in the strip hamas condemned both the explosion and the p.a.'s accusation. these three written accusations can only achieve the goals of the criminals that targeted the convoy of. the bank suspects who want to destroy the
6:15 am
palestinian clans is the occupation. some analysts suggest salafist groups aiming to cause political chaos were behind the attack on the crater itself shows you just what a sizable device this was the immediate impact obviously substantial the question now is how far the shock waves of what happened here will carry over into the political process between fatah and hamas. reconciliation efforts have been stalled for months since hamas dissolved its administration last year so far there's been no full resumption of p.a. control in gaza with talks pondering on issues such as jobs for tens of thousands of hamas members and control of its military wings weapons we are living. in between that is specifically of hamas or that de facto government and that a new government that's indeed not enough to. have it said it's possible that the palestinian prime minister arrived back in ramallah in the occupied west bank

6:17 am
is that wind coming in from the northeast the direction dragging in the into the very cold. copious amounts of snow fall have been falling across the northeast corner of the u.s. even into kentucky pushing further north what's right up the eastern seaboard through new jersey new york and up towards new england some parts could see as much as maybe thirty forty possibly fifty or sixty. centimeters of snow anywhere from around rhode island to maine by the end of this snow event very strong winds as well winds could gust as high as one hundred kilometers per hour so blizzard conditions not looking too much better by the time we come to thursday but i think that the worst of the weather will be over by that stage still a chance of one of two when three flurries wintry flurries to study a possibility over the rockies over the next game between it doesn't too bad pleasant sunshine there for dallas temperatures at twenty two celsius similar values to form a i mean we come down into the caribbean and start looking too bad little bit of cloud there making its way across cuba so the possibility of some rain here that
6:18 am
will sink further south which as we go through wednesday into thursday. you know like everywhere connected with this. poor infrastructure in the pentagon some form corporation speech truman. now a politician activists are building a home grown solution could make live huge and secure the nation's technological sovereignty. piques the citizens network this time as you.
6:19 am
are watching al-jazeera let's recap the top stories right now outgoing u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is urging a smooth transition after he was dismissed by donald trump via twitter the president says policy differences were to blame tillerson will be replaced by cia director mike pompei oh. russia has defied an ultimatum from the u.k. over the poisoning of a former spy a minister to resign may have given moscow told the into tuesday to explain how was sylvia terror a nerve agent was used in the attack against her face cripple and his daughter. and palestinian prime minister rami huntelaar has escaped unharmed after a bomb explosion hit his convoy in gaza palestinian authority has accused rival group hamas of trying to assassinate him moss has condemned the attack and tonight any call. a special election in the u.s. state of pennsylvania is too close to call with all but a few of the votes counted democrats are hoping to win the seat despite the
6:20 am
district being heavily republican donald trump carried it by nearly twenty points in two thousand and sixteen when the democrats did not even field a candidate there during the last two congressional election. and the seat opened its longtime republican because its longtime republican congressman that is resigned because of a sex scandal john hendren is in washington d.c. so. the race as we said is too close to call but what does that even tell us about the results that this particular race is too close to call. you know it's a nail biter of a race that was never supposed to be won as you point out donald trump had this district by twenty percentage points just two years ago the democrats didn't even field a candidate last time around and now it's too close to call there are over there's more than ninety nine percent of the votes in these are all electronic votes so not a lot of mystery less than three and a half hours after the vote and yet out of about two hundred fifteen thousand votes
6:21 am
cast we're looking at about eight hundred votes difference that means the absentee ballots may decide this one and one county that was planning on counting its absentee ballots tomorrow that's washington county is now saying that they're going to count them tonight because it's just that close and it was never supposed to be that way connor lamb is a new politician he's an ex marine a democrat young and charismatic but he was running against a state politician a state representative name rick succumbed he was widely expected to win and near the end of the race republicans pumped ten million dollars into that race because he wasn't fund raising very well democrats by contrast only put one point seven million in to add to limbs own three million dollars in fund raising so what happened is at the end of this race everybody realized that suddenly it was going a completely different direction and no matter what happens tonight the democrats are going to declare victory because they say this is going to give them momentum
6:22 am
toward the midterm elections in november when they're hoping to retake the u.s. house of representatives so let's talk more about that about why there is so much attention being played paid to a special election and and pennsylvania what can the parties take away from this both parties. well the house is has got four hundred thirty five seats the democrats just need to take twenty five more to win and their take on this is that president on a trump is a historically unpopular president his his popularity ratings rate hover around forty percent or a little more and they're hoping they can take advantage of that that a lot of these white working class voters in areas just like the one that is voting tonight poll workers steel workers those people were democrats traditionally went for trump the last time around of the democrats are hoping to take them back and it's important because donald trump just passed these steel tariffs to protect
6:23 am
regions like this and those don't seem to be working at least not in this case so the democrats are taking this as a sign a canary in the coal mine that they can take this district so therefore they can take others and they hope to win more than twenty five seats than they take the house and then guess what they are in charge of the in the house investigation into the trump administration and that's something they're very interested in doing ok john hendren live for us in washington d.c. john thank you there are reports donald trump is set to hit china with steep trade tariffs it's believed the u.s. president is seeking to impose tariffs on up to sixty billion dollars worth of chinese imports the move to target the technology and telecommunications sectors last week trump announced tariffs on steel and aluminum imports prompting fears of a trade war and trump has examined border wall prototypes for his proposed project to create a barrier on the border with mexico has shown eight towers that will be tested for thirty to sixty days to determine which design is best trump said he liked
