8:17 pm
department of justice is going to argue that the book has a number of classified paragraphs which contain information which should not be out in the public the problem that they have got is that the president didn't see that what he said is the book is full of lies the other problem they've got is the book is out there the media have it extracts have been published people have copies of i have a digital copy of copies circulating here and many many many thousands of copies have hit the bookstores in the u.s. and beyond ready for the publication date on tuesday so it is very difficult for the court to argue. that they've ministration to argue to the court that this book needs to be stopped john bolton well he's opposing it obviously it's the actions against him rather than against the publisher it's john bolton he says is donald

8:19 pm
a yemeni minister has called on the coalition to end the fighting and to restore order on the island but earlier i spoke to catherine check them she is the director of the yemen unit at the next century foundation that's a think tank that operates in conflict zones she says the resurgence in fighting is possibly because of turkey's growing involvement in yemen it was a real fear that they would try to encroach on to the south and problems of yemen and try to open not you know and use one i've been through if you will and i think that the u.a.e. reacted to you know and you see what is happening now in secret trials and we need to remember about i suppose the uys concerned the whole intervention in yemen anyway i was always about having control of that which you raise in yemen so in the south and making sure that for example secret how would not fool read in someone else's jurisdiction as far as they are concerned that it was a matter of. national security so i think that the 5 knowledge that we see around
