5:10 pm
more provocative actions between from north korea around mid october so the question will be if tensions do rise u.s. and china will seize on that urgency to cooperate more cohesively and to make a more united front or if the more tense situation leads them to break apart in some way and they have some differences on the best way to move forward so we'll have to states you know over the next couple weeks and see how things develop with a full calendar we'll certainly be watching that closely steven burrill a console thank you and now to some of the other stories making news around the world dozens of people have been arrested after clashes broke out at a neo nazi rally in the swedish city of golfing burg counter-demonstrators protested against a march by the nordic resistance movement and police struggled to keep the two sides apart a police officer and several people were injured russian opposition leader alexina
