6:01 am
a long delay, canada's prime minister visits a former residential school where the remains of indigenous children were found. and the un spends a special envoy to zimbabwe to safe sanctions against leaders of only ended up posing the people. ah, he was a decorated military leader of the 1st african american to become the u. s. secretary of state now flags across the united states being thrown at half staff to mourn the death of colet, colin powell. he died on monday at the age of 84 from cove at 19 complications. pol is being remembered as a trailblazer, but his reputation was tarnished over his faulty claims to justify the 2003 invasion of iraq. his our white house correspondent, kimberly alcott the news, the colin powell had died of covered complications came as
6:02 am
a shock to many. powell had been battling cancer but was fully vaccinated. a sad reminder that the vaccine doesn't always offer full immunity against the disease. immediately the tributes to the retired 4 star general poured in his family. a dear friend of the patron, one of our great military leaders and a man of overwhelming dishes. and i believe sugary palsy, yours is a soldier or what made him such an exceptional diplomat. he knew that war and military action should always be a last resort in iraq's behavior. show that as secretary of state under president george w bush, powell will be remembered as the person who made the case to the world in 2003, that iraqi leader, saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. a key justification for the american invasion of iraq. it was a claim he later regretted your to his credit or he was accountable. yeah. he,
6:03 am
he admitted you know, his mistakes early or later. ah, that is not something that you we've heard across the bush national security team on monday. bush issued a statement, pointing out the powell was so respected, he earned the presidential medal of freedom twice. powell, a vietnam veteran serv, most of his life in the u. s. military before he entered politics. as the 1st african american secretary of state, he set an example for those who came after him. the senate, a po, the 1st black president, brock obama said powell never denied the role that res played in his own life and to in our society more broadly. but he also refused to accept that race would limit his dreams. he has been my mentor for a number of years. i always made time for me and i can always go to him with what tough issues. colin powell served multiple republican presidents. but later in life
6:04 am
endorsed democratic candidates for president, he put duty to country above allegiance to any political party. yet another reason that in a divided united states, americans from the right and left are honoring the example set by colin powell. kimberly, how can al jazeera washington general mark kimmitt is a former assistant secretary of state for political military affairs. on the president george w bush. he worked on the colon pile and says the relationships with tears will forever be part of his legacy. she was everything that the eulogies and the admiration that is being spoken about a minute. he was larger than life, but he had a humility and a care for the individual that i think you rarely see either in senior government officials or senior military. so that's what i'll always remember about him. the way he had that individual touch with people of much lower ranks than he. but again,
6:05 am
this is a guy whose ego was very low. he probably said to himself, i regret doing this. i made a mistake. but for people like him that don't have a great concern about his place in history, i think he got over quite quickly. his legacy will be that un speech that he made in 2003. but i think those are sort of served in the military and admire what she has done and what he meant for a generation of soldiers, particularly black and african american soldiers that realized there were no limits inside the military for them and others of their race. that's what he'll be remembered for. the us to pop and watchdog will review the end of the by the administration is diplomatic operations in afghanistan. it'll take in the evacuation of the embassy and cobble and how the special immigrant visa program was
6:06 am
handled. this includes the processing of afghans as refugees and their resettlement in the united states. my camera has more from washington is exactly that. it is a review, a spokesman for the inspector general's office is saying that this is a review. it is not an investigation that may be purely semantical, but it has been massive criticism, not necessarily about the fact of the withdrawal, but the way in which it was conducted. and this is what the inspector general, the acting inspector general is going to be looking at. essentially 4 different areas. the issuing of special immigrant visas are the resettlement of afghan families. how they are resettled, or are going to be re settled back in the united states and a very important point as well. the emergency procedures at the embassy in kabul and whether those procedures had been sufficiently thought through and were exercised at the time of that rapid withdrawal following the advance of the taliban
6:07 am
. so it is a wide range of investigation. we only know about it because a letter has been sent to the senior members of congress, heads of various committees. being notified that this investigation or review is about to get underway, but very much a recognition of how much concern there was in congress about the manner of the withdrawal from afghanistan. the us and voice were afghan, histones only coil south has stepped down. calozaro led the trumpet, ministration talks and contra with the taliban. that resulted in the agreement for u. s. troops to leave. his deputy thomas west has been named takeover. japan's prime minister says that north korea has fire to ballistic missiles. earlier south korea's military claim. the pyongyang had fired one missile from its east coast. so i said that a projectile had landed in the sea of japan. north korea has conducted

6:09 am
september, they conducted a launch of the hypersonic missile. and now this is all taking place as south korea is the middle of a very strong diplomatic push with the use of the u. s. and japan. at the end of september, the south crane president moon j in restarted talks and dialogue to try to reengage north cree after months of stagnation. as a result of fail talks between the trump administration and pyongyang, and recent days we've had a press conference in the us with us and boy talking about the need to engage with young young. this week there was due to be a number of meetings taking place between south korean officials and us officials as well as discussing the situation in north korea. so it could be possible that this particular launch is in response to those meetings. but we get to hear any confirmation 0. katrina reporting live from beijing. katrina, many thanks. that of labrons,
