frankly out of the united states $21.00 states have made the decision to stop using the death penalty all and each of us they present verdicts using life in prison without any possibility of wall as an alternative we believe that that is a type of punishment that states should be considering rather they are looking at the death penalty which again we believe is simply inhumane and should be taken off the table altogether an american rapper whose case has been taken up by president donald trump has been charged with assault in sweden asap rocky whose real name is rocky miles will remain in a jail pending trial he was detained earlier this month after a fight the 2 men miles lawyers says he acted in self defense last week trump urged the swedish prime minister to free my eyes and said he would personally vouch for his bail patrick o'brian has more from washington. u.s. president donald trump obviously not happy at expressing it in the place he usually

he's willing to work with the protesters and we are committed to. finding a weak or. in a peaceful more concerned mood looking forward to harbor dialogue and much opposition will be required. as we move forward i don't want to see anyone suffer and we will see people get sick and die if they're forced to spend 3 weeks 3 months or god forbid 3 years blocking this road i'm heartened by his presence i'm glad he's here i think he will experience what we've been saying about what this place looks and feels like about our conduct of. the passion of all the people who are willing to withstand these these cold temperatures and i should conditions many native hawaiians have long been angered by the presence of a number of observatories on the mountain they know as mana chaos but the

a women's race equal to the men's because the tour de france is monuments it's the race for the best way to encourage young women to cycle is with media coverage of a big women's race 5 years ago this group of women set out to raise awareness about the inequalities in professional cycling each july they ride all $21.00 stages of the tour it's a challenging route of nearly 3500 kilometers but they do so in conditions far less comfortable than the men's with traffic a modest support team no prize money or fanfare. this year these international riders have joined them where every day guys have got full time jobs and if we can do it anybody can do it we've got a lot fatigue in the legs it's like that nations all over the place as well because it's quite draining mentally as well as physically because we don't have the support that the professionals have in the 1980s the organizers of the tour de france experimented with the women's race but they said that it failed to attract enough public and media attention but times have changed women's sport is popular
and now the organizers are saying that they are considering an equivalent women's. the a.s.o. company that runs the tour has yet to provide details of a future race but it's expected to be longer than they were one day women's event these tour enthusiastic they it'd be a welcome addition to the cycling calendar. woman's world cup team had lots of coverage so why not a women's tour de france at the end of the 18th stage the galley be a pass is a grueling climb but the prospect of a women's tour makes the efforts worthwhile. yes euphoric at the idea that the organizers of the tour think it is possible to create a big stage race in france for women riders they really deserve it. reaching the top is overwhelming for some but the sense of achievement is clear and with only days until the end of the 3 week challenge these women are riding high natasha

for up to 90 days while elections are organized. i swear by god almighty to protect the independence of tunisia and the safety of its lands to respect the constitution and law and fully take care of the people's interests and be loyal to tunisia in this young democracy a vacant post for the country's leadership could spark a power struggle among tunisia's political parties deafened lot of what candidates who are considered to be quite popular and quite strong but also very controversial . have been barred from running the presidential elections by parson parliament not too long ago this was not yet been signed by missteps in before he passed away and i think we'll hear a lot more about this controversy next couple of days president benjy kiters said speed who spent the last few weeks of his life in a not of the hospital was a leading figure in what was known as the arab spring uprising as prime minister and then tunisians 1st democratically elected president he helped draft
a new constitution guaranteeing freedom of speech. his accomplishments though were often overshadowed by a weak economy and high unemployment rate there is despair nobody can deny that there is the sense of hopelessness nobody can deny that however in comparison to other countries there is no hope. we can fix the pot and go to all the more prosperous than 87 days of national mourning have been declared as the country honors the life and legacy of a says speech no know what it is though he started his mission on a positive note and he finished that the same way may he rest in peace his predecessors heard the country but he was a good man who served his country no one did that before him no one shot. we hope the next president will be even better we hope our country will be stable and safe we have some terrorism but the country doesn't blame him it's unclear who will be the front runner in tunisia's next presidential election but the groundwork has
already been laid out for what should be a smooth transition katia lopez so the yawn al-jazeera. david chaytor has more from tunis. the presidential elections were due to be held in the vendor but now they're being brought forward to the middle of september this is written under the constitution that allows the speaker of parliament to serve in a temporary position as president for up to 90 days so the constitution of course is one of the main legacies of the president and it is that which is guiding the future and the future stability it has been extraordinary that this president has managed to steer this country to a successful transition towards democracy perhaps the only one in the arab uprisings which actually managed to do that now has yet to be seen how contentious
this fight will be for the presidential election but there is the legacy of the president as much as he tried to weave together both the secular and religious elements of politics and he did that successfully wall that still be maintained after his death will the unemployment problems here the unemployment rate is now risen to 15 percent it's much you and i are in that amongst the youth there is a huge amount of protests swirling about the fact that the moxy might have come and stayed in tunisia but the economy is not responding and there's a great deal of pressure on the government to do something about that so they're hoping for a smooth transition but we'll have to hold our breath and wait and see if they get it. algeria's interim leader. has set up a 6 member panel to oversee a national dialogue it's aimed at organizing the country's presidential election
the move follows months of demonstrations which led to president of the disease with of his resignation and then his 20 year old protesters say they want to complete a political overhaul with the ruling elite how to account for corruption. now north korea says thursday's missile launches were warning to south korea and want solved to stop importing high tech weapons and end joint military exercises with the u.s. the announcement on more korean state television confirms suspicions that the tests were a new kind of missile launchers were the 1st since may well despite the missile tests u.s. secretary of state by pompei remains optimistic the united states can reach an agreement with north korea pompei it says he hopes to start a new round of talks next month well let's get more on this our correspondent rob bryant is joining us live from the south korean capital of the north koreans or was bragging about these missiles capabilities rob what are they saying.
that's right elizabeth the north korean television friday morning confirming also that north korean leader kim jong un personally oversaw this missile test and as you mentioned they are saying that this is a new type of missile it has a guided tactical capability and analysts here in south korea and also in japan have been analyzing further data from these 2 this double missile launch they are confirming that it does seem to be a new type of guided missile a south korean defense ministry official here telling us it seems to be based on a russian misstep miss are known as the skandha this has the capability of being preprogrammed to change course and direction mid-flight and now the concern for the militaries here in south korea and also in japan is that it makes them a lot harder to intercept with anti missile systems already in existence or being
developed by the militaries in south korea and japan so that's the concern that really does seem to be a growing sophistication in the north korean missile systems interestingly on the timing of this north korea does says it is a warning to south korea not to take part in these military exercises also seemingly for increased increasingly importing sophisticated military hardware of its own particularly the f. 35 stealth fighter calling south korea war mongers but interestingly not directing any of its anger at the u.s. it still wants to try to keep good relations with the trumpet ministration where it sees its best chance of trying to win some relief from the sanctions and on the sanctions rob where you are in south korea they're releasing their estimate of the north economic figures for 2018 and they will give us an idea of how much sanctions
ahead in the country how much pressure it's under because that will of course have an impact on how willing north korea is how much is willing to compromise end any talks. absolutely in fact those figures have just been released in the past few minutes and they do show that in 2018 the north korean economy contract is by 4 point one percent now these figures are compiled by the bank of career for the south korean economy but they also provide figures for the g.d.p. of north korea because north korea doesn't publish its own figures so it has shown that there was a minus figure last year the economy contracted by 4 point one percent and that is on top of a further 3 and a half percent contraction that we saw in 2017 that was at the height of the missile and nuclear testing crisis when these sanctions really began to bite so for .
