un's highest court has labeled actions by the united arab emirates against thousands of countries as racial discrimination judges in the hague say the moves have split families and they should be reunited cattle took a case against one of four countries that's imposed and at sea and land blockade more than a year ago. reports from the hague. qatar's legal battle with the united arab emirates has dealt a defining blow the international court of justice says the measures taken by the u.a.e. after the blockade of qatar amount to racial discrimination according. the usa has failed to respect the obligation is the i.c. j.s ordered the u.a.e. immediately to allow qatari families expelled from the country to be reunited students to finish their studies and those qatari affected access to courts and tribunals the order said the i.c.j.
president is compulsory the core fairness that this all of that is. and that article forty one of these that. bind in effect. and there's a international legal obligation is for any part to her the provisional measure is that it's last june the u.a.e. saudi arabia bahrain and egypt sever diplomatic ties with qatar and imposed a land sea and air blockade accusing catarrh of funding extremism and accusations it denies qatar says its citizens were either illegally expelled or denied access to the u.a.e. separating families and denying people access to health care education their properties and assets of course the u.a.e. is the only one of the four countries to have imposed a blockade on cattle but is the only one out of the four to be brought here before
the international court of justice why because it's the only country out of the four that signed up to the international convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination but bahrain egypt and saudi arabia will be watching this case closely and drawing their own conclusions this is a statement that there is a likelihood of discrimination so one would think that the other states in the region would say that means something again likely that this is a violation in earlier hearings the u.a.e. denied any policy of expulsion saying it's measures were designed to have the least possible impact on ordinary citizens it said his argument was with the qatari government not the qatari people but the u.a.e. must comply with the court or face further legal action qatar could go to the u.n. security council and demand an informant order this is one of a string of legal challenges mounted by qatar to try and end the blockade a ruling the country will welcome but whether it will help end the blockade now in
its fourteenth month is less certain neave back at al-jazeera the hague. that's the exact attacks have the absent of washington he says the court's ruling praised the blockade of castle as a legal this is certainly a victory and it breakthrough for a couple that i think i thought ought to be from gradual a to dip team the league of teamed up represented it under the leadership of my friend dr mohamad binocular as he's a whole life he did an excellent job in presenting their case before the court and convince it convinced that to take this professional who really doesn't necessarily imply the end of the blockade but it's certainly points to the illegality of the blockade in terms of human rights violations that he see today is not the same g.c.c. we knew fourteen months ago by choice i think the blockading parties. they
are responsible for that and they seem to be willing to destroy that most successful experienced if you will in a cooperation council within the arab world for rather some some fish reasons some of them individual states seeking to control and truth on the sovereignty of others i think the decision of the court prove something very important hoops that the blockade has at a serious impact it's a form of racial discrimination it is real in terms of daily impact on the lives of people in the region it is a kind of long lasting impact and it's harmful. new satellite images appear to show north korea has begun dismantling its main nuclear launch facility hey you can see the site this month and then a few days later part of the structure has been removed the pictures were released
by mongering site thirty eight north it would be an important step by pyongyang after kim jong un pledged to pull apart the facility join the singapore summit with donald trump while there are signs of progress in north korea the relationship with iran is getting worse the iranian foreign minister has released a tweet mocking donald trump's late night threats trump warns the republic of consequences never seen before the u.s. president says he's unconcerned that he may be heightening tensions shepparton see reports. the iranian foreign minister's tweet mimics of the all caps late night tweet from the u.s. president color us unimpressed it said the world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago and iranians have heard them albeit more civilized ones for forty years we've been around for millennia and seen full of empires including our own which lasted more than the life of some countries be cautious exclamation mark be cautious is how donald trump's tweet ended as well thanks at the white house donald
trump was asked if he had any concerns about provoking tensions with iran this was his response. things have changed in the administration everywhere now those around on from who've long advocated for regime change in iran notably national security advisor john bolton he released the following statement if iran does anything at all to the negative they will pay a price like few countries have paid before but white house press secretary sara saunders argued that the administration's approach to iran has been consistent and the president's been i think pretty strong since day one in his language towards iran he was responding to comments made from them and he's going to continue to focus on the safety and security of american people the president's tweet came at a time though when much of the international community is arguing that withdrawing from the iranian nuclear deal has made everyone less safe not more diplomatically i think a lot of countries are very resentful of the united states they think the u.s. pulled out of a perfectly fine nuclear deal that iran was complying with i think they're
diplomatically maybe iran feels like it's with europe and russia and china saying that the u.s. is overdoing it here world has become on sunday secretary of state mike said the u.s. would attempt to stir unrest in iran by beaming antigovernment broadcast into the country but beyond that it's still unclear what the long term strategy of the trumpet ministration is almost three months since the u.s. withdrew from the iranian nuclear deal she had zero washington. has already struggling to control. wildfires around the capital now have a new challenge strong winds whipping up the flames he's already in force in two areas and more than twenty four people have now died many fifth things will only get worse diane reports. smoke spreads across the greek capital carrying fear of what the summer may bring around athens fires having got several towns homes have burned to the ground the hillsides no match for the raging

because of his turkish descent from berlin dominic cain explains. his international career is over now club duties with arsenal have taken mesut ozil to the far east but in his absence the fallout from his retirement is reverberating around germany the newspapers have seized on his statement in which he pointed the finger at the german football association specifically and its president hein hardaker linda accusing him of having a racially discriminative background as ill has been in the spotlight for his off the field actions since this moment posing with the turkish president both alone and with other german players who have turkish roots red chip type area one is a divisive figure in germany as are the policies of his government but in the turkish community in berlin even among those who oppose aerotow on many support earth will and i think most became from begin fighting racism begins with showing people where the limits are we've had enough someone needs to say that to the
german football federation that all players with non german backgrounds are welcome and we will make sure that you feel well in germany if you have a second or third home that's ok but you're here and you're a part of our society some in the football world here remember what happened after france won the world cup in one thousand nine hundred eight how that multicultural team acted as a catalyst for the then german hierarchy to change its thinking first of all they try more integration they've tried to build of more schools and as you see it worked in whether you were twenty one in four thousand or nine and whether with the team in two thousand and fourteen in brazil. you know that if there are success nobody discusses where they come from. and yet after this summer's french victory in russia some did highlight the racial background of that team with one comedian describing the victory as africa winning the world cup something french
officials angrily dismissed saying there is no hyphen in people's nationality they are french and only french. here in berlin mesut ozil does have one very powerful ally angle americal says she values him as a great footballer who did a lot for the national team and in his career he wore the national jersey ninety two times scoring twenty three goals and helping his team to win the world cup but now he says the levels of racism and disrespect he's received mean he will never wear this again dominic came. in. the craggy as president has denied responsibility for months of violent protests saying he doesn't control the paramilitary groups blamed for most of the deaths more than three hundred people have been killed since the protests against daniel ortega government began in april demonstrators want to call early elections but in a rare interview with us television or take

flies in the face of a long standing position. well it looks as though it's legal hypocrisy i mean you're either in favor of the death penalty or you're not in favor of the death penalty you can't begin after fifty years of. steadfastly being opposed to the death penalty to start to carve out exceptions to that even if it is for purposes of terrorism i still think it's a departure from a long standing in afton much looked upon among other european countries as a a strong steadfast position the united states has a mechanism to pursue the death penalty in appropriate cases the federal government has a death penalty statute it hasn't been used quite frankly much over the last twenty thirty years but the statute does exist that's if we if the united states was what was going to try these cases in

eight is talking about six mill. i believe that it is much more because i've technology has to reach remote areas in the whole world and it's probably unlikely for us to get feedback of how many babies were born in these remote areas so it's an underestimate it's important to appreciate that currently predicted that by the end of the century there will have been four hundred million babies resulted as i from my very forward white christina in march that pioneering technology gave them families they would otherwise never have had happen stansell al-jazeera london now members of the thai football team trapped for two weeks in a flooded cave are taking part in put a ceremonies to thank the spirits for their rescue. but. they are as a ministry in their child right where they've also held a ritual for the time navy seal who died to join the operation later eleven of them
