certainly glad to have you with us. as heaped praise on his guest emmanuel macron at a meeting at the white house u.s. president called the relationship between america and france a special one and he had his own unique way of showing it. but the united states lonely frons thank you. mr president the old saying what a great relationship we have and they're actually correct it's not fake news finally it's not fake news so it's a great honor they don't know that you're here but we do have a very special relationship in fact i get that piece of. peace we have to make them for years perfect so it is really it is really great to be with you and your special right now a lot of the basis of recent unity between donald trump and french president mccraw
10:02 pm
on has been the recent attack on syria france and the united states along with the u.k. cooperated in the recent air strikes in syria now it seems pretty clear that mccrie on was hoping that this recent attack could kind of lay the basis for a continued cooperation between the united states and france kron has been referring to the united states as kind of a gerund turf contemporary multi-lateralism however when he brought this rhetoric up at the white house donald trump didn't seem quite eager to go along with it in the long run we need to bring peace want to make sure that syria does not become an enemy in the region be we have spent seven trillion dollars in the middle east and we've got nothing for it nothing less than nothing so far as i'm concerned that difference and striking rebuff from trump is a little bit of a blow to him across on especially when he himself bragged about the possibility
10:03 pm
that he had convinced donald trump to keep u.s. military forces in syria now donald trump says that that's not the case but mcclellan has been insisting that it's him who is responsible for convincing trump to keep a military presence in syria trump later went on to underline the fact that the. united states will be leaving syria as soon as they can as far as syria's concerned i would love to get out i'd love to bring our incredible warriors back home when it came to the iran deal just an hour before the press conference donald trump and the french president they were both very adamant in their positions trump was at that point saying what he said for a long time which is opposition to the p five plus one conclusion in the nuclear deal were as mcclaren was saying that there was no good plan b. that they needed to stick to the nuclear deal people know my views on the around it was a terrible being old should have never ever been made we could have made a good deal or a reasonable deal the original was a terrible deal we have to take you as
10:04 pm
a part of the road because your trip which is security in the oval room it's insane it's ridiculous it should have never been made but we will be talking of what we want to do it contains iranian residents and the bridges and d.c. view it's part of this growth rather good not going to be restarting anything they restart it they could have big problems bigger than they've ever had before and you could mark it down they restart the nuclear program they will have bigger problems and they have ever had before but after sitting down with the donald it seems that mcclellan has changed his tune somewhat this is mccraw on after meeting with trump . the people. in the barnacle for a number of months i've been saying that this was not a sufficient deal but it will enable us at least until twenty twenty five to have some control over their nuclear activities if we therefore wish to work on a new deal with iran but mr president you were saying that there was no plan b.
10:05 pm
. not in the. iran deal was to be preserved no you were talking about a new deal with the boundary why did you change your mind. but when i said there was no plan b. i usually refer to the fact there is no plan it be brutal it was about climate change rather than iran's to put it. what do you have a better option i don't see what is the what ifs and i all your plan b. i don't have any plan b. for nuclear are against against iran thank you. thank you. thank you thank you thank you. for the french president added some symbolism to the meeting with president trump by presenting him with a tree sampling and of the site of the two leaders digging a hole in the white house garden got plenty of attention on twitter.
10:06 pm
build up an argument that the soul is a great author to take part there's a personal and these veterans or they call witness trees that that lived through the war see around you have continued to grow. looks like the bearing of bodies like the body of allah dying to see ha ha get it from from across france and paul ryan's find at the white. house which pink floyd album is made it's the to love those branches look like treat hanson to strangle. denise soprano season this is the best. tennis of francesca know who represents the french national front in the united states told us that the apparent friendship between the french and u.s.
10:07 pm
leaders was just a display for the media. for a better year you know microland the french media just hated trump and now suddenly you know trying to appear to be like the new body of prison my crown i think they just have to show going to face value to the world after what happened you know in syria i do also think that it was you know mostly any major that was created for the past twenty four hours jill's that. there's been a shift of characters and now you know mike brown wants to go to war and. where trump is more like you know let's we have done what we should have done and let's just let's go back home i'm not sure what michael has in mind but i think he will be definitely like triggered between france and the media and french people said you know we have nothing to do there and is international interest. human rights groups are demanding answers after a saudi led air strike hit
10:08 pm
a wedding party in yemen the bombing raid killed at least twenty people and injured dozens more this according to local officials but some reports suggest as many as fifty people died and we should warn you that the following video showing the scene of the strike is distressing a seven year old boy can be seen clinging to his father's body they're said to have traveled a long way to attend the wedding the man's body was reportedly the last to be taken away following the air raid as the boy refused to let go many of the victims were women and children. i was the bridegroom on and i was our friends gathered in our place and were hit by an airstrike many innocent people were killed and injured. this was my nephew who was injured last night by the airstrike he's two brothers
10:09 pm
who were killed. well we contacted humanitarian groups for their reaction human rights watch said the saudi coalition can tin used to target civilians and refuses to compensate victims oxfam condemned the attack and called for an investigation meanwhile the saudi military says it is taking the report very seriously and will conduct a probe saudi warplanes have been bombing yemen for the past three years the intervention was launched to prop up the yemeni government against shia who the rebels united nations has described the conflict as the world's worst humanitarian disaster earlier my colleague called bray was joined by the former head of the red cross in yemen who explained it just how much needs to be done in the country. why didn't the family in and there is a problem with a structural collapse of the system in yemen you have problems of water you have
10:10 pm
problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no doubt that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some to a large extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed to ensure a decent level of life for the population otherwise the country goes downhill the problem is is one of a structural decay. yemen is not a country like you can find another come hell is where with village little infrastructure in yemen you have a lot of infrastructure and this particular infrastructure is falling to pieces and we international organization including the i.c.r.c. we try to do what we can to support these structures but of course we can only do so much so i do agree with you that bringing back the country on the on back on its
10:11 pm
feet will be a long long lasting tones and that sounds like it's a technical problem that needs dealing with that aid is somehow just a front line is to do with water and food but it's not it's a there are few doctors the ones who are there are being paid the very structures of what the country needs in order to keep rolling and keep facilitating just our very them and it's not only one of the most serious crisis that i've seen it's also as you point out one of the most complicated i have seen and i am afraid that this is becoming a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the beginning of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor during the one unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was reluctantly should i say it's simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex you. infrastructures which are falling to pieces up to the point that on the whole system we have commissioned a study from
10:12 pm
a well known british school that's going to carry out a full study of the health system in yemen to to get to know where we are today in yemen you were very serious crisis there was a food crisis there was also a crisis that has led to one million suspected community cases of cholera last year in a matter of six months it was like bushfire in twenty two years in the i.c.r.c. had never seen something like that and feel like an almost impossible task though because you broke almost a year ago quite passionately about your experience in tyee is the difficulty of getting into certain places just what kind of uphill struggle is there for aid workers once they get together unfortunately we had a tragedy three days ago where one of the staff of the yemen delegation was killed in today's and and today i cannot help but think about him his family and and wife and this you know expert is a stark reminder that working in human remains extremely difficult we do it under
10:13 pm
extremely difficult circumstances in because of. extremely. tense hard fighting taking place doing this work documenting the cases is something that takes a toll and sometimes takes a toll on the lives of our colleagues. or the israeli human rights group abed salim has released a video showing a soldier cheering after shooting a palestinian with a rubber bullet in the west bank. ah . we asked views really defense forces to comment on the video they replied saying
10:14 pm
that the behavior seen in the video is not what is expected of an i.d.f. soldier but they pointed out that the commander was heard instructing the soldiers to act professionally the israeli military also said that appropriate action will be taken over the incident. and the scandal follows three weeks of deadly unrest on the israel gaza border thousands of people have been rallying by the border fence each friday in a so-called march of return calling for the release of palestinian prisoners and more than forty palestinians including four children have been fatally shot by soldiers. and when israeli general has defended the use of live ammunition against people who try to breach of the border fence and attack soldiers he said that in such situations fatal incidents are sometimes unavoidable to make great stories sometimes when shooters and you intend to hit is almost shoulder there's even higher pictures not a pretty picture of the price that we have to pay to preserve the safety and
10:15 pm
quality of life of the residents of the state of israel and that's the price. the israeli army accuses hamas which controls gaza of using children to carry out acts of terrorism the i.d.f. released of the picture appearing to show a group of boys trying to breach the israel gaza border fence and the israeli defense minister echoed that view he described as cowards use women and children as human shields however the head of the palestinian national initiative told us that the protesters on the border pose no threat to israel. well it's something that i have seen myself during peaceful demonstrations the israeli army uses lethal weapons against peaceful demonstrators who present north over to the soldiers and they are celebrating the fact that killing palestinians is very clear the i.d.f. do you have a case to answer here because of those civilian casualties as the un have said you have said what would you say to those that have said hamas or the parents of those children are responsible as the i.d.f.
10:16 pm
of said for bringing these miners very small children to a protest where violence is likely to happen with young people yes but mainly everybody is but is it with men women and we've been advocating to hummus and to other groups to give to get told not to use military forms but to use peaceful nonviolent demonstrations for sixteen years we've been advocating nonviolence and today they accept our methods of nonviolent resistance we want is for the world is to know the truth and exercise pressure on this country that which is israel that claims to be a democracy why using force in this manner. the u.s. government is spending billions of dollars on bolstering its defense in space artie's nichiren has details. military defense hollywood style united states air force has opened its high ground of space for day to other nations other air
10:17 pm
forces who dream of making such a claim but what if their dream became a reality never expects something trust to turn against you. millions killed the facts paint your boards infrastructure. so. skilled players will compete and will win. the u.s. has unveiled its latest splurge in space with a plan to step up security on its satellites but not just its own those of its allies to their concern is that potential adverse stories may be capable of hacking or disabling the satellites they were getting hardware as we know is crucial to communication navigation and intelligence gathering all things that would be crucial in the advent of war and it's hope that by sharing this information with its allies that would deter any potential attacks but is just the tip of the iceberg because space warfare is the big defense trend right now which the new
10:18 pm
black don't take my word for it ask the u.s. top brass of the air force i cannot think of a military mission there's not depend on space russia and china are developing capabilities to disable our satellites as the u.s. deems ahead with its space odyssey it's pouring in billions and roping in the likes of space that is a long muskrats proven he can not only deliver but he brings the goods fast but with john king of satellites is one thing the question now is how long will it be before we see actual physical attacks in space well some think it's just a matter of time before american forces find themselves fighting from space we're going this of whether this is the case though not one thing's for sure the u.s. is determine. and to remain a leader in this field the character of warfare has changed in vision a constellation of nana satellites always the predator never the pre and one person
10:19 pm
unable to contain his excitement is the us president space is a war fighting domain name just like the air and sea we may even have a space force develop another one space course with the air force one of the space schools we have the army the navy now you might think there's no no war regulation on taking things a step too far in space but in fact there is almost a decade ago one hundred seventy eight countries voted on a u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s. and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space so perhaps an inkling that the u.s. has long been planning on staking its claim to the stars we talked to physicist and arms control researcher dr mark goober route he thinks that the space threat is
10:20 pm
being exaggerated. as to the specifics there the specific threats i think much of this is exaggerated actually. the notion that some other country is going to attack the united states sort of sit in a scenario of attack on civilians for stocks or via space i think is quite overblown are mostly some people in congress almost entirely republican and these are the people who have been pushing this idea i don't think the military really wants it lead to an expanded budget could lead to more money for the contractors and that could very well be some of the motivation for people in congress to be pushing this idea i think it's high time that americans woke up to that and realize that we need a different policy we need a policy that would seek to avoid war in space to who i weaponization is based on our policy didn't gauges proposals for arms control in space. the german chancellor angela merkel has voiced concerns over
10:21 pm
a new wave of anti-semitism in europe since the start of the migrant crisis. noire we have a new phenomenon as we have many refuges and on whom they're off for example people of arab origin who bring in another form of anti-semitism into the country fortunately and to some it isn't existed before that. you know the leader of the belgian league against anti-semitism told us that the german chancellor needs to do more to tackle the problem. so i hope that some get a message to say it will be followed by deeds by actions by this listen and not on the you know the republic to comment on the recent event it's not an issue for jews actually it's an issue for europe jews are the first target but when jews will fall to the other will follow more and more people will think that. they will be able to clear the play which is islam is. which is the far right they should keep in
10:22 pm
mind you die of balls jewish communities are facing a similar problem in france french politicians and prominent figures are now pushing for attitudes to change as part of a manifesto against anti-semitism they signed a petition denouncing a quiet ethnic purging that is being driven by radical islam among the signatories are former french president nicolas sarkozy and his wife carla bruni actor gerard depardieu and former prime minister manual falls we demand that the fight against this democratic failure that is anti semitism becomes a national cause before it's too late before france is no longer friends france has the largest jewish community in europe with more than half a million people recent study found that there was a twenty six percent increase in violent incidents against them during two thousand and seventeen and in many cases this is forcing people to leave france the
10:23 pm
president of the belgian league against anti-semitism again believes that we're seeing a worrying trend. but is very new in this article is that they go to the core of the problem speaking about some verses some sort in the koran calling for a to gain jews and christian against the nonbelievers. to change this to make it actually can make it obsolete that could be part of the solution it's not a fight between muslims and the most teams it's a fight between openness between total runs on one side and on the other side you have darkness you are in toronto you have a. u.k. defense secretary has claimed his country needs to reassess the threat from russia we have to be realistic about the challenges the challenges are posed by russia
