summit when u.s. president donald trump met with vladimir putin he said it was an honor to meet the russian president days or ninety eight and in august when the u.s. congress passed legislation to sanction russia iran and north korea trunk grudgingly signed it into law but failed to sanction moscow for alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election until now on thursday the us treasury sanctioned twenty four russian entities and individuals including two russian intelligence agents for interfering in the twenty sixteen presidential vote the announcement coming just as the white house issued a joint statement with the united kingdom germany and france blaming russia for the nerve agent attack in the u.k. leaving a former russian spy and his daughter comatose to a very sad situation it certainly looks like the russians were behind it something that should never ever happen and would take an adverse seriously the u.s.

says thursday sanctions are part of a broad effort target what it calls russia's malicious cyber activity and critical infrastructure clued in america's energy grid nuclear facilities water supply and aviation industry it also targets an alleged russian troll factory the u.s. justice department recently singled out for the reported interference in the twenty six thousand vote for months members of congress have been pressing the trump administration to act questioning why it has delayed responding to what it calls russian aggression and we're still waiting for the president president trump to order one word public criticism for what putin is doing to the u.s. and democracies around the world i say to president trump. your silence speaks on this issue. the white house disputes that accusation i think you can see from the
6:04 am
actions that we've taken up until this point we're going to be tough on russia until they decide to change their behavior this move by the trumpet ministration will immediately freeze russian assets in the u.s. and block the sanction to individuals from traveling to the united states only adding to the tension between the two countries kimberly health at al-jazeera washington. as we mentioned earlier the u.s. has joined britain france and germany in blaming russia for the poisoning of a former spy and his daughter in the u.k. the country's released a joint statement saying there's no plausible alternative explanation for the attack on wednesday in britain expelled twenty three russian diplomats and suspended high level contacts with moscow a u.k. correspondent barnaby phillips reports. the prime minister visits seoul spring a small english cathedral city not accustomed to this level of international attention we do hold russia culpable for this brazen brazen acts and
6:05 am
despicable acts that's taking place on the streets of what is such a remarkable city and while she met the people of seoul spree her ministers continued to press home their argument that russian guilt is disputable something by the way in the kind of smug sarcastic response that we've heard from the russians that to me bit-o. indicates their fundamental guilt they want to simmer tenuously to deny it and yet at the same time to glory in it and the reason they've chosen this this nerve agent is to show that it's russia and from the defense secretary words that may cause even more offensive moscow frankly russia should go away should shut up a joint statement with the americans french or german as described events and salt

spray as an assault on british sovereignty and from nato this this is the first of sensitive use of a nerve agent on alliance territory since nato's foundation all of us agree that attack will sic clear breach of international norms and agreements this is unacceptable. it has no place in the civilized world as for the russian reaction contemptuous of british accusations. the british prime minister has made several statements over the last few days in parliament they were completely insane accusations against the russian federation against our country against our nation so now it's london bracing itself for the retaliation that moscow has promised and with everyone in the british government assuming that vladimir putin is about to be reelected the seams no prospect of anglo russian relations improving for years to come but to be philip's

6:13 am
world the saudi economy is larger than the iranian economy and that iran is far from being equal to saudi arabia but i've seen that you call the ayatollah khomeini the new hitler of the middle east absolutely why. he did it because he wants to expand he wants to create his own project in the middle east very much like hitler who wanted to expand it at a time many countries around the world and in europe did not realize how dangerous hitler was until what happened happened i don't want to see the same events happening in the middle east does saudi arabia need nuclear weapons to counter iran assured you that even today a saudi arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb but without a doubt if iran developed a nuclear bomb we will follow suit as soon as possible robert mugabe has spoken out for the first time since being ousted. president mcgarvey gave an interview to foreign media from his home in harare he called his removal from office in november

6:16 am
towards the cascades to los angeles should be largely drive with highs of sixteen so let's head down into the caribbean here we've got a frontal system moving across central areas so there's a line of cloud associated with it and perhaps a few showers it does tend to weaken as we head into the weekend so i think the sunshine will return across most of the islands thirty and bright in kingston jamaica through the u.s. missed weather conditions gerry looking fine we've got to one or two showers coming off the caribbean side but generally should be fine mexico city highs of twenty six heading into south america thirty showers across the amazon basin further south some rain for parts of paraguayan into the far south of brazil rio will see some rain but it should be fine further south in buenos aires. to train and equip the opposition in syria so they can help push back these terms the people in power investigates how the us supplies soviet style weapons to its allies through private companies. wash their hands and say well we didn't know

6:19 am
the government but also by society in general we've been along this whole time as if nobody kiddies it's been four months since a submarine went missing in the southern atlantic it was sailing from the southern argentine city of. the commander of the vessel told his home base water had entered the resulting in a battery function. and the water listening devices scattered around the world's oceans identified the hydro acoustic anomaly in the area the navy believes it was an explosion. that was part of the crew he has been pushing for the government to continue with a search and the investigation into exactly what happened there with almost. it's been one hundred twenty days when supposedly an explosion was detected and we have more doubts on ever because over two hours after the supporters of explosion there is an attempt to contact base nobody has been able to give us any answers we want
6:20 am
to know the truth because there is an attempt to hide what happened the government says it has done everything possible to find the missing submarine but people here are desperate and they're coming bands but not enough has been done some of them are even asking for small donations so that they can hire a private company that will help them find their loved ones. there's been an international search for the missing sub russia and the united states provided ships and technology but weather conditions were difficult at the time no trace of the bethel has been found the search is continuing though with a reduced number of ships. but as if it leaves there might be another reason why finding the submarine has become even more difficult. most probably the submarine got stuck in underwater canyons with enormous currents and very probably the submarine could be covered with sediments which makes it more difficult to find us
6:21 am
now we need to continue combing the area change the top of technology it could take years to find. and that's what these people want they've lost hope their relatives will be found alive but they need to know what happened no matter how long it takes . thousands of brazilians have been mourning the death of a city councilor after what the president is calling an assassination marielle franco and a driver anderson gomez was shot dead in their car on wednesday in rio de janeiro the thirty eight year old was a popular public official and a critic of killings by police and some of rhea's poorer districts the military took charge of policing in the city last month. the murder of council member mariano driver anderson is unacceptable like other associations that happened in rio de janeiro it's an attack against the rule of law and against democracy the u.n.

bad feelings it's a reminder to the world that the war was bad and together we must maintain peace the just one u.s. soldier was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison but later had his sentence commuted. the message and other similar incidents helped galvanize the antiwar movement in the united states and turned more vietnamese against the american soldiers today of course the vietnamese haven't forgotten the war but for most there is a sense of moving on. relations between the two countries have steadily improved to the point where they see strategic and economic benefits of being on the same side . last week saw the largest u.s. military presence in vietnam since the war as the navy visited the city of dumbing and took part in several community events. but moving on is not so easy for those who survived one of the most horrific acts of the war. giving the local people who will always retain some hatred for the american so jews who had no

a whole al-jazeera moscow the world health organization has launched an investigation after particles of plastic were found in some of the best selling brands of bottled water researchers tested two hundred fifty bottles imported from nine countries and found an average of ten plastic particles per liter each particle is about the width of a human hair and the w.h.o. is looking into whether that affects our health tested samples included evian and. seamus in as the science behind the report she says people should look at how much plastic they use in daily life and try to cut down. i wasn't surprised that we found plastic because quite frankly you know i my right work started and and the great lakes and i've looked at water i've looked at sediment i've looked at rivers i've looked at fish i've looked at sea salt they looked at beer everywhere we look we find plastic even in remote areas like a lake up and mongolia so i wasn't surprised to find plastic but i was surprised at
6:30 am
the quantities that we found and the different types of plastics that we found but i really think that this really comes down to us reevaluating our relationship with this material right most of us have access to clean safe water that we can use and reusable containers instead of going out and buy bottled water similarly you know you don't need a plastic bag when you go to the grocery store you don't need straws to drink your beverages and so i really think we need to reexamine our relationship with this material because the reality is every piece of plastic we find in the environment ultimately comes from us which means that we're the problem but that also means that we're the solution. the top stories on al-jazeera the u.s. imposes new sanctions on russia targeting more than a dozen people for trying to influence the twenty sixteen presidential elections
