and it's lucia with al qaida to conspire against us in. opposition to 20 that. bahrain playing with fire on al jazeera. al-jazeera. ellen malcolm and you're watching the news hour live from doha it's good to have your company coming up in the next 60 minutes south korea says north korea has fired 2 ballistic missiles into the sea of the country's east coast this just days after a similar launch last week. sudan's military general orders all schools to be shut down end after deadly after crowds of students protest against the killings of
5:01 am
5 pupils at a rally on monday. and setting the stage for a presidential race u.s. democratic candidates begin a 2nd round of debates we will be live in downtown detroit for that. and a call for investigation u.n. security council members demand an inquiry into the bombing of hospitals in syria's adlib province. south korea says north korea has launched 2 ballistic missiles off its east coast it's the 2nd such tests in a week now the missiles flew 250 kilometers into the japan see the south korean military joint chiefs of staff say they are monitoring the situation and case if additional launches and tests come at the united states struggles to reach a diplomatic agreement with north korea over its nuclear weapons program or we can get more on this from rob mcbride who's in seoul for us or rob what's been the
5:02 am
reaction in south korea to these missile tests. that's right so the joint chiefs of staff here in south korea say that these 2 missiles are indeed similar to 2 missiles that were fired 6 days ago they traveled as you said there around 250 kilometers reaching an altitude of about 30 kilometers they are still analyzing the data from these launches the reaction has been fairly swift here we've heard from the japanese they said that the while the missiles didn't approach their territorial waters the japanese defense minister has said that this is deeply regrettable and that if this is discovered to be ballistic in nature they could well be in contravention of u.n. resolutions so there could be consequences to this having said that last week's launch was also thought to have been in contravention of u.n. resolutions and there doesn't as yet seem to have been a consequence for north korea it's almost as though the world has come to accept
5:03 am
these launches now from south korea there's been a slightly mixed response the foreign minister has said that this is not conducive to easing tensions on the korean peninsula which is something of an understatement from the defense minister here in seoul there's been a slightly more robust response saying that if these threats and provocations as he calls them continue then north korea would have to be considered its regime and its military as an enemy which is fairly strong words fairly tough stuff from south korea coming of course after a year and a half of all of this diplomacy reconciliation and bridge building divya indeed so what kind of a message is thought korea trying to send with these missile tests. i think it shows north korea's frustration we saw that last week and then also a similar launch in may a just at the pace of negotiations we have these summits often very headline
5:04 am
grabbing events such as the one that took place months ago on the d.m.z. between donald trump and kim jong un and then alone nothing seems then to take place we have been promised by the 2 leaders that they had given authorization for their 2 teams to start working level talks we don't have any sign of those talks starting yet and that's where things tend to get bogged down in the nitty gritty so this is frustration i think on north korea's part they want to get negotiations started and the clock is ticking for them they see in donald trump their best chance of winning some relief from these crippling sanctions they i think sense that the more hawkish figures in donald trump's ministration such as mike pump peo and so on maybe losing of some of their grip on the president and with donald trump being being possibly going his own way and deciding his own policy they see
5:05 am
in him that they might win some sort of concession from sanctions if donald trump decides to do that so it is a reminder from north koreans and also a reminder of that their frustration and also their patience is wearing thin. thank you very much rob mcbride for us and sell out for more in this han park is the founding director of the center for the study of global issues he joins us live from augusta georgia on skype thank you very much for coming on the program and we have seen overtures unprecedented overtures from the united states most recently of donald trump for the 1st time crossing a u.s. president crossing into d.m.z. welcoming kim jong un why would north korea at this point in time risk of that relationship these missile tests. yet they were north koreans were substantive development not just symbolic gesture us on. day one to south
5:06 am
korea and us stop their showing to military exercise in exchange for their various steps to or complete to nuclearization i think north koreans who were willing to give up their nuclear program but we have to reciprocate. with the sanction reduction with non-aggression a gram of agreement maybe peace treaty diplomatic normalization we have a lot of things that we can also but nothing has been offered to north korea and their missile as it's designed to demonstrate that they're willing to strike back if there are attack or preemptive strike if they're educated right as you have as our correspondents were saying there were low level talks scheduled they're still in the works why wouldn't north korea then in that case i
5:07 am
mean this is as you said this is their best chance currently to try and get those some of those sanctions lifted why why would they risk this with washington and how difficult does this now make it for washington to continue their relationship with north korea or to even give them some space or leeway with regard to the sanctions . the days are untrusted and no no level productive effective noisy asian. the has of the state donald trump and kim jong un who greed at least in principle and change is fighting with their brief meeting in north korea border not too long ago but north korea once to have been implemented or nothing has been done since jan and american political situation is much more complicated nighter now donald trump would have
5:08 am
the ability to negotiate with north korea. without the approval or all the u.s. senate for example the united states sees has since has created demonized to north korea to the east down there not going to new or ca with north korea so it's only has to situation prove dale's as wrong as the united states else large amount of new military conventional weapons to south korea north korea really feel that their security's threatened so again we've seen we've seen the u.s. base in washington. give f. or give north korea time and time again after all kinds of provocative actions and still reach out their hand and try to engage north korean denuclearization do you think the u.s. is patience is running out or is this just another bump in that road towards more
5:09 am
engagement with north korea we have to put ourselves in north korea as the mind of mind a sad day think they're constantly being threatened because american troops stationed in south korea in japan in the. so dead part of the world. he said very everybody on the by the united states and north korea is very unhappy about that and threaten that in terms of security so we have to really sit down talk about mutual concessions we have to give something to them by way of reducing. sanctions and canceling the joint military exercise compromising on sales to south korea so these things would have to be coming together with north korea and concessions to would be
5:10 am
a complete denuclearization thank you very much han park for shedding some light on the situation in north korea you well. well as state and north korean official is tell expected to attend this week's meeting in bangkok between the bloc of 10 southeast asian nations known as ozzie and scotland has this report. as thailand hosts the foreign ministers of aussie and regional forums this week what's due to be discussed won't just be about southeast asia in addition to the u.s. secretary of state the foreign ministers from china russia japan and south korea are expected one issue of particular focus the tension on the korean peninsula a senior official from pyongyang is expected in bangkok for the meetings possible discussions on the next summit between chairman kim jong un and president donald trump could take place after 3 meetings the leaders have made no progress on moving toward an agreement over north korea's nuclear program. this after north korea last
5:11 am
week tested what it said were new tactical guided weapons and released photos of a new submarine the meetings here in bangkok could be viewed as an opportunity for the 1st to trump him at summits were held in member nations singapore and vietnam so ossie on the can attempt to provide a continuing role for the talks before the big players need to broker knew that the 3rd party media took some time to provide an environment of setting for for talks building in the past 6 party talks didn't go anywhere so perhaps if they can be persuaded that you know a 3rd party platform. would be a key catalyst the key confidence builder. long an issue for several of the aussie on nations china's claim of territory in the south china sea but there has been a lack of consensus about what should be done within discussions with china on a territorial code of conduct are due this week. some feel that part of the problem
5:12 am
is the rapid expansion of chinese influence and reach region wide through infrastructure investment and commercial and military deals and that's not just undermining the block critics say but also enabling china in its push for greater control over the south china sea it must be the collective position of honesty in all of that to tell the tide means that from the historical from the international law from the reality pie no view you have no. reasons no facts to support your claim to the whole of south china sea but the meetings won't all be about politics as a group has the 5th largest economy in the world so trade agreements in the trade war between the u.s. and china will no doubt be discussed on the sidelines. ok let's get more on this from scott hytner who now joins us from bangkok scott going back to the issue of north korea being invited to these talks. isn't sending even
5:13 am
a high level representatives and given these missile launches is there any hope for diplomacy chairing these meetings david yeah there's a lot of hope there but obviously you know if you don't have the foreign minister if you've got ministerial level discussions going on here over the next couple of days it's unclear just how forward how much forward those discussions can go we know that the ambassador from north korea to thailand will be attending some of these meetings you know the foreign minister usually comes to the regional foreign ministers meetings for the last 10 years the foreign minister from pyongyang has come down this is the 1st time in those 10 years they haven't met obviously with what's happened over the last couple of weeks you've got those missile launches last last week in the submarine that the new submarine being unveiled and then also with these projectiles launched today these missiles launched today on wednesday that elevates the importance the urgency of the talks that will take place but again north korea as we know now north korean foreign minister is not going to be
5:14 am
attending caught highland bangkok for us at that meeting thank you. so other news now and sudan's ruling military has suspended schools across the country indefinitely the announcement comes after security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas at protesters during mass rallies they were protesting the killing of 5 students on monday the military leaders have condemned those killings but says it's not clear who's behind it about morgan is monitoring the situation from neighboring ethiopia. voicing anger thousands of demonstrators mostly high school and university students came out on tuesday in sudan's capital sort of zoom and other cities there protesting the deaths of fellow protesters in in north korea defense state on monday. when protesters came out decrying the lack of bread and honey in transportation prices i security forces opened fire in response killing several and injuring dozens others. don't have any blood for blood we will never
5:15 am
accept anything but just as civilians we salute everyone in a robe a city for standing for the sake of the nation it is an epic moment in our country's history as of now the ago today i'll miss is to the military council is that it's time to go she oceans and i must stop killing our people the students in the streets this military council is nothing that remains of the old regime and they must step down thanks to this protesters were also met with tear gas and live ammunition with doctors reporting several injuries as a result the protesters are also demanding justice and accountability following an announcement from an investigation committee that the ruling military is not to blame for killing protesters on june 3rd when a month long pro-democracy sit in was attacked by the army the military council has been ruling sudan since ousting longtime president on monday bashir in april
5:16 am
they've been in talks with the opposition coalition known as the forces of freedom in change to form a transitional government and initial agreement was signed. early this month but a final deal is yet to be rehearsed talks for that final deal have been repeatedly postponed over the past few days with uncertainty on when talks would resume some analysts say what happens next depends on the military council you know the box right now of the gate or the transitional military council it is their responsibility to inform the security forces therefore i think there is some trust and confidence on the part of the nation that in the event that these forces. are holding to their demands that they have the right to go out and what those people do want some form of reckoning. in terms of some of the abuse of them violence and that have been perpetrated by the former regime but at the same time i think you do need some kind of compromise to give this transitional process
5:17 am
a trance but anger amongst the demonstrators is high as is the demand for justice as some demand a halt to negotiations and this protest has continued to be met with violence and certainty over sudan's future continues and if it can steer itself to a stable transitional period people morgan al jazeera i did. all the head of the ruling military gent as blame the opposition for the violence why don't you read about this protest has deviated from its course the group the called for the protests had exploited the students and other groups and attacked the market one of the banks and looted some of its property some people say they were people on top of the building of khartoum bank who started shooting others say security stationed in front of the bank of the ones who shot. we have plenty more still ahead this hour including i'll tell you how the u.s. administration defies a court order against separating migrant children from their parents. and caster
5:18 am
semenya will miss the world athletics championships we'll tell you why later in our sports roundup. so u.s. democratic presidential candidates get their 2nd chance to show why they should be given the nomination to run against donald trump in the 2020 election the 2nd televised debates are underway in detroit and john hendren joins us now live from there so john set the scene for us there and tell us what's been happening. well it has been chew hours of rock is debating the democrats consider themselves the party of civility but they came out swinging at least several of the candidates did at $1.00 of the candidates jim ryan a representative said to bernie sanders you don't know that you can get all of that done referring to health care for all of
5:19 am
public health program and sanders wrote i do said i do know i wrote the damned bill and then time and time again elizabeth warren senator who was really one of the most aggressive aggressive up there along with sanders struck and struck hard at her opponents at one point john delaney a former maryland congressman said over health care when she proposed medicare for all that is health care a public health care program for the elderly she wants to extend it to everybody he said he said we don't want to take away people's health insurance why do we have to be the party of taking things away she said we're the democrats we're not taking any health care away from anyone why are you using republican talking points and at another point she said to john delaney i don't know why someone would go through all the trouble of running for president just to tell us what we cannot do and
5:20 am
cannot fight for and there's a reason that this was a more raucous debate than the 1st one that's because they're now winnowing down the candidates there are 20 now over 2 nights and the party would like to winnow those those candidates down also the 3rd round of debates in september have much stricter rules it is expected that fewer than half of the 20 candidates who made this debate will be in it it does look like the progressives dominated the talk time but there were also impassioned moments from moderates like people who judge the south bend indiana mayor who said elect me and you won't be able to have a. veteran stand alongside donald trump and ask him to explain why he did not serve in vietnam so iraq is debate it'll be determined over the coming days who won and who remains funded after this happens and sit on to explain to us how important this particular debates are the 2nd round they'll be it will be broadcast to
5:21 am
millions of viewers and what is it that the viewers are looking for from these candidates. will viewers tell us we talked to several on the street here in detroit today and they tell us that what they're looking for is not really to see a lot of verbal fisticuffs they want answers to their problems a lot of people are doing fairly well in this country but there is increasingly a feeling that those at the top are doing far better than those at the bottom in particularly in a place like detroit a city that just a few years ago was under bankruptcy and that particular fact smarts for democrats because they lost the state of michigan along with other states that had been a long term democratic strongholds no republican presidential candidate had won here in michigan since 1988 and that shows that they really the democrats really fell down on the job of selling themselves and that people gave up they voted for donald trump instead so what they're trying to do was redeem their failure last
5:22 am
time around john hendren keeping tabs on that democratic debate taking place in detroit for us thank you well u.s. president donald trump has issued a warning to china don't wait to do a trade deal as it may backfire trade talks between the world's 2 biggest economies have resumed after they stalled in may it over tariffs trump has said he believes china is trying to wait until after the 2020 u.s. presidential election to make a deal. well anna tweets the president said if and when he wins that election any deal will be much tougher than what's currently being negotiated if there is a deal at all we can now go to wayne hey who is live for us and assange hi so wayne what are the chances of anything significant coming out of this meeting. i think the mere fact that these talks are taking place that they are meeting face
5:23 am
to face these 2 delegations from china and the united states for the 1st time since the negotiations broke down in may is being seen as a positive we are seeing this process restarting if you like it is tempered with an expectation that there will be very little if anything to come out of this meeting between these 2 sides in the form of concrete details about progress made towards a deal as you mentioned donald trump has repeated this line that he believes the chinese will push the south or at least will want to push it out beyond that next presidential election in the united states trying to put pressure on them to accept a deal sooner rather than later again that something he has said before it's unlikely of course of the chinese will take much notice of that all be influenced by it but there is a sense the chinese are quite happy in fact to take their time over this partly because some of the things that the americans are asking for very complicated and
5:24 am
very difficult for beijing to deliver on if they can be delivered on it all right says he said you know it seems to be stop start stop start one step forward one step back what seems to be the main sticking points in these negotiations. it was interesting that when the negotiations broke down in may we heard from the u.s. side saying that they believed that they were about 90 percent of the way there to ending this trade war that's been going on for more than a year of course again that's coming from the u.s. side mainly that's mainly where we get this information from it's very difficult to get detailed updates from the chinese side as to how far our how well these negotiations are going and exactly what the stumbling blocks are but it does seem what the chinese want in the 1st instance is all those tariffs that have been placed on the good since this trade war began more than a year ago to come off that is the 1st step and then they can start talking about some of the other details in these negotiations as far as the u.s.
5:25 am
side goes well i mentioned that some of the things they're asking for very complicated it seems that what the americans want go way beyond a normal trade deal in goods and services they want broader structural reforms in china's economy in the industrial sic good things that the chinese have certainly embarked on over the past couple of years but to go further along that process again is very complicated it's going to take a very long time even if this trade delegation meeting here in shanghai wants to deliver on those things they have to go all the way to the top in beijing so again it's going to take a very long time so there is a sense of the chinese are settling in for a long fight here when hey on those u.s. china trade talks thank you the u.n. humanitarian chief has pleaded with world leaders to end what he calls a bloody onslaught in syria's province mark lukaku warns that the continued violence may create the worst humanitarian disaster of the 21st century our
5:26 am
diplomatic editor james bass has more. carraige this the 7th meeting of the security council since the intensification of the bombing of a glib started in april and still division among council members and growing frustration the continued failure of the un security council to end impunity for these crimes is a blight on the credibility of this body to carry out its core mandate the u.n. soon monetary and coordinator. addressed council members directly you in the security council have ignored all the previous pleas you have heard. you know what is happening and you have done nothing for 90 days as the carnage continues in front of your eyes immediately after the meeting though 2 thirds of the security council said they believed it was mr locals boss the u.n.

5:28 am
a documentary about the war he's been in new york to express his outrage that the crimes he witnessed 3 years ago and now being repeated he has this message for the international community i think it is the last chance for them to do the right thing to stand with the people like in this situation that it's not like the bad guys and the good guys and who do we stand with just like there are children mothers. people are dying. this is the satellite imagery of one syrian town and what's happened to it in recent months but it's far from clear whether there's a way to stop yet further destruction and loss of life james out his era at the united nations. i had an al-jazeera the u.k. prime minister's threats of a no deal break that sent the pound tumbling to its lows value in more than 2 years . i'm natasha butler in normandy where the demolition of this dam has sparked

5:30 am
that heavy rain and even some cloud up into shanghai that should be dry with a high of 35 degrees celsius and those same rains extending really quite a long way southward so much of thailand vietnam and cambodia will see the cab and also the rain come with it but it does stay further dry farther to the south as you can see we've got messy case guys for the next couple of days into a city such as kuala lumpur and single pole $31.00 celsius is the high in singapore the very heavy rains there now across the central areas of india as you can see that's where the most of the satellite has been showing the cloud in the last few hours very heavy amounts of rain particularly down the west coast among by even for a very wet couple of days some torrential downpours at times keep in the top of those temperatures with the high the the 29. the weather sponsored by catalona. every week brings a series of breaking stories this maximum jail term has jumped from 5 years to

175 years during the listening post as we turned the cameras on the media donald trump shouldn't be the one deciding who is a journalist and who isn't and focus on how they were caught on the stories that matter the most they will cause a recall search of a tire shut down both international and domestic news coverage on al-jazeera. demain the intersection of reality and comedy and post revolution tennesee a. mission to entertain educate and provoke debate through satire how weapon of choice theater. and intimate look at what inspires one of china's year's most popular comedians to make people laugh. my tune is you hang on al-jazeera.
5:32 am
hello again you're watching our desire and here sara mind of our main stories this hour south korea says north korea has fired missiles of its east coast and missiles flew 250 kilometers into the japan see the south korean military joint chiefs of staff says they are monitoring the situation in case of additional launches. sudan's military council says it has suspended schools across the country until further notice they are not been comes up to security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas at protesters. mass rallies are being held against monday's killing of 5 students. and the u.s. democratic presidential candidates are taking part in a heated 2nd televised debate gun control and dominated the early parts of this
5:33 am
debate and for more on this we're joined by michael fauntroy is the sez he a professor of political science at howard university good to get you on the program thank you very much for joining us from what we've seen so far the big they seem to have been these candidates have been debating for more than an hour now who do you think looks like they're coming out the strongest well i think there are a few people who stood out for me a little bit that i didn't expect. didn't have really high expectations from i thought that john delaney former congressman from maryland talking about taxation particularly has a potential to. what i would consider to be unfair tax system we have spoken eloquently on also thought that. steve bullard from montana the governor of distinguished himself elizabeth warren was great on student
5:34 am
loans and you know this was this is possibly a good debate from our perspective because a number of candidates have ideas put things on the table that i thought were pretty interesting to me from ohio for example a point also start out i had a moment to i had some time to watch a little bit ensuring that simon was early earlier in the hour racial issues seem to be a hot button topic how important is that given the rhetoric we've been hearing from president and how important is that to the democratic base the people they're trying to appeal to. right so this is a very important time for any democratic candidate in my view you can't be a serious candidate for president and not have something responsible or or or well thought out on issues of race and racism in america is a very perilous time for us right now in my view the president out of status is has
5:35 am
embraced racism quite frankly and so the democrats have to speak out on it i was surprised they spent as much time on reparations as they did i thought there was a really good discussion and i think understanding in this is we're better or roca thought out a good moment understanding and acknowledging the history that the original sin in american slavery still has to this day centuries on i think was something that was well known well noted and well needed but this is same seen as a prime time pitch millions fewer so they're listening and watching closely what do you think they're looking for they're looking for strong policies from these candidates or someone who can square up with president donald trump. well all of the polling shows at least at this point the democrats want somebody who is electable so that's the 1st thing i think people are looking for but i really think
5:36 am
is important for your viewers to know we're still very early in the process and a number there are people on the stage today or likely going to be out of the race in 2 months because things pick up through the rest of the summer you know candidates begin to distinguish themselves in terms of fund raising the kinds of things that are necessary to go forward so i think we're talking about electability 1st and foremost and then at that point it's really about is anybody coming to the table with new ideas that really resonate and shake the tree if you will democratic voters and also forcefully responding to president trump who again has chosen to base his reelection in and large measure on an old view of america that is really much rooted in racism xenophobia and massaging rights and who is it that these candidates are trying this attention are they trying to get are they people that are already part of the democratic base or is there
5:37 am
a chance they can actually would those republicans who have been sitting on the fence. well at this point it's really is really about trying to solidify democratic voters you know if you if you run what i think could be called a general election strategy and focus on that before you secure the nomination i think you're going to have problems but at this point it's about securing the democratic base and then later once the nomination is sewn up for whomever it is that's running and presumably they're running low because i think the vice presidential running mate is going to come out of the group there today or tomorrow they don't think you can begin to get at some of those never trumper voters those republicans who oppose the president that's very fertile territory because there are a number of republicans out there who are sort of headed with the president but don't really have an alternative at this point to go to michael fauntroy from howard
5:38 am
university good to get your insight and analysis thank you while the us president donald trump has brushed off accusations of racism as he doubles down on his criticism a prominent black and minority leaders black state politicians boycotted an event the president attended over what they called racist rhetoric the event marked 400 years of u.s. democracy and trump accused those who stayed a way of acting against their own people trump's been involved in a series of online attacks against foreign on why progressive congresswoman a black politician who represents baltimore and a prominent civil rights activist i am. very sick there is anywhere in the world when you i don't know me you know i'm a girl might be right there with about what you are but i got along with. the race. will be.

a good american. president today who are today. and stay in the u.s. civil rights lawyer say that more than $900.00 migrant children have been separated from their families at the border since last year the american civil liberties union found that nearly one out of every 5 children taken away from their parents is under the age of 5 and 2018 a judge ordered that the practice of splitting families must be halted also in jordan has more on this from washington d.c. there merican civil liberties union said that it decided to file this latest challenge in federal court because of information that it says the federal government presented to it starting late in 2018 basically that federal agents were once again separating children from their parents at the us mexico border perhaps for the most frivolous of reasons they c.l.u. said in a court complaint filed in california on tuesday that some of these reasons included
5:40 am
a parent who did not want to awaken a sick child when she saw her diaper and then authorities taking his child away from him because they claimed he was a bad parent another person lost his child because he had been driving without a valid driver's license and yet other people were accused of being members of gangs even though in most cases they were not the a.c.l.u. said that the federal government is abusing what it says it has to have which is broad discretion to protect children in these circumstances and what the a.c.l.u. wants is an in court hearing with the judge that put in the original order stopping the forcible separation of families and it was the judge to spell out under exactly which circumstances the federal government can remove children from their parents a stance of for the children safety. the british prime minister says the must

compromise in order to prevent a new deal breaks it on october 31st johnson made those comments during a trip to wales where he pledged continued support for farmers in the event of no deal farmers face tariffs and the mass slaughter of livestock for all for reasons if the u.k. consequent deal. meanwhile the british pound has fallen to its lowest level against the us dollar and more than 2 years it's also dropped to a 7 month low against the euro the currency has been falling since boris johnson became prime minister last week and economists warn it could weaken further as the likelihood of a new deal breaks it increases donahoe has been following those developments from london. to an extent i think the u.k. will have grown used to a fluctuating pound in the 3 years and a bit since the break that referendum in 2016 ebbing and flowing with the fortunes of brakes at the concern from a currency point of view now will be how far the pound may yet have to fall and how
