frank assessment is orcus likely to change biking behavior. it'll, it's not going to change their behavior. they are going to continue to do what they do. and in depth analysis of the days global headlines inside story on out jesse era, ah, north korea pfizer 5th ballistic missile a little more than a month as talks with the u. s. stall about is controversial nuclear program. ah, i'm sammy's a them. this is al jazeera alive from dell hall. so coming up me and miles military leaders released democracy activists as they come under pressure from regional block a ziann to bring back civilian rule. one of our great military leaders in the men
10:01 am
will be decent. president joe biden leads tribute to america's 1st black secretary of state colin powell. but iraqis, blame him for the devastation of a country. and the un sends a special and void his in bob way to assess the effects of decades of u. s. and e. u sanctions ah, but begin with one of the most significant north korean ballistic missile launches . since u. s. president joe biden took office, south korea's reporting at least one was 5 into the sea of japan. the military says the weapon may have been designed for submarine launches. japan's prime minister is canceled election events and returned to tokyo to assess the situation. if you're the case that is very regrettable that the country has continued launching missiles
10:02 am
since last month over the you thought you see, i'd rather not predict north korea's intention of firing the missiles from my point of view, but i think we must continue making efforts on grasping the situation and collecting information, katrina, you joins us now live from beijing. so katrina got few conflicting details about what north korea did today. what details do we actually know about this missile test? what we do know it was an under water massage. it's still unclear whether it was from actual submarine, if it was, this would be the 1st time this kind of technology was successfully tested by north korea, or whether it was as previously just launched from a underwater test barge. now according to the south korean government, it, the launch took place at 10, 17 am local time from this area of shin pool, which is where north korean submarines are based. south korea says it was one
10:03 am
missile, but the japanese government says it was true missiles. now the south korea national security council convened shortly after the launch expressing deep regrets, echoing the sentiments of the japanese prime minister, but a japanese spokesperson youth strong to stronger terms. he condemned the test saying that it was a danger to regional peace and stability. now we know at the mormons that as you mentioned, the japanese prime minister has canceled his electioneering campaigning events to return to toko. this massage was launched off the coast of japan. they're extremely concerned. assessing this situation closely so far. they say there had been no damages or casualties, but these bodies are concerned because this is the 8th missile launched this year from north korea earlier test defied un sanctions on north korea. and the previous one was just a few weeks ago at the end of september, when peeling young tested a hypersonic miss auto and katrina. where does this leave the prospects of resuming
10:04 am
talks now? well, the timing of this is interesting. south korea is in the middle of a big diplomatic push to reengage, north korea, and the dean nuclear is ation process. this process completely stalled. under the previous u. s. trump, administration, and n boy from the u. s. reiterated a message to young young just yesterday on monday, saying that the u. s. has no hostile intent towards north korea and to on tuesday, the intelligence chiefs from south korea, japan and the us are expected to meet behind closed doors in sol. now, south korea is pushing for an official declaration to end the korean war, which is still still technically under way. so we don't know whether this missile launch was in response to this flurry of diplomatic activity. what is also interesting about the timing is that this week, in sole, is the opening of this big weapons trade for the
10:05 am
a decade trade happening in so where a range of asian countries are doing their shopping for the latest new, high tech weapons. so those countries include south korea, so it could be that north korea is also responding to this event taking place this week. we'll leave it there. thanks so much. katrina, you may not penetrate government. his releasing political prisoners, relatives have been waiting outside the prison and young gone. the amnesty grant's freedom to those who took part in the anti qu, demonstrations. so most of the political leaders of the former government, including on census, she will remain in detention in mas move, follows a z and decision to exclude the gym to leader me on lang from an upcoming summit. that's scott high lane, following developments from bangkok. so 1st of all, how those prisoner releases shaping up for today with them, we know that, you know, a few 100 several 100 have been really since this announcement came on monday today
10:06 am
on tuesday, we know that dozens more have been released. you know, information will probably trickle out pretty slowly because of the communication issues in vietnam and getting the word out. but what we do know is it, as you, you know, you mentioned there are some very happy family members receiving some of those prisoners who have been in political prisoners who have been behind bars for some, up the 8 months since the coo 1st took place on february 1st, so a lot of them were arrested throughout the months that since then. right now we're hearing that it's about $5600.00 prisoners will be released. we know that there are over 7000 political prisoners currently in prisons throughout me and more because of what they've been doing since the coo took place. so there are still, as you mentioned, some particularly that top leadership of on, on su cheap. and the end of the government that will remain behind bars. but right now we are starting to see these, these numbers trickle out. it's probably it will take several days if not more than
10:07 am
a week for all these $5600.00 to come out. but right now we're starting to see some of them. how all these prisoner release is being seen. are they seen as a genuine indication of a change in heart, or simply a token to appease a ziann? it's interesting, you said that to me because actually the you in special repertoire to me and not put it pretty much in those words. he said that, you know, these print they, they welcome the prisoner releases, but they said the un said that they should never, never have been put behind bars to begin with. and it's not necessarily as you put it semi a change of heart, but it's them reacting to pressure. and that pressure really started last weekend when asi on this block of 10 nations here in se asia said that the leader, that the job to lead him on line was not going to be attending summit and the on summit that will be next week. it's
10:08 am
a virtual summit that he is not invited and non political member from me and mars jones would be able to come, but not the leader of the job itself. so you can look at this and it is being seen as a bit of a reaction to that pressure. the release of these prisoners, they came out, the government came out and made a statement yesterday that that's not what they're doing. this is because they, they said that they wanted to have a humanitarian act by the judge to release these prisoners. but it's very difficult not to see it as a reaction to what happened over the weekend. and that, that, that the leader may lie of the agenda is not going to be attending that. so it'll be interesting to see how that unfolds next week in the several days over that summer to see how the member that isn't by the agenda will be interacting with these other nations as well as other outside the region actors to right, thanks so much. got hi la. the buys met, ministrations, top and voice, rough ghana, stan who negotiated with the thought of on the step down that my holly inside lead
10:09 am
the trump administrations talks in cuts out for us troops to leave the country. he continued his role into biden's presidency. his deputy thomas west will now take over. the us state department watched august to review the chaotic end of the biden administration's diplomatic operations in afghanistan. it'll assess the evacuation of the us embassy and cobble and how these special immigrant visa program was handled flags across the us. so being flown at half staff to mourn the death of collin pow, of the age of 84. he was a decorated military leader and the 1st black american to become secretary of state . but his reputation was tarnished for his false claims to justify the 2003 us invasion of iraq. his white house correspondent, kimberly how could the news the colin powell had died of covert complications came as a shock to medi powell had been battling cancer but was fully vaccinated. a sad reminder
10:10 am
that the vaccine doesn't always offer full immunity against the disease. immediately the tributes to the retired 4 star general poured in is not only a dear friend and a patriot, one of our great military leaders and a man of overwhelming dishes. and i believe secretary 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, he was accountable. yeah. he, he admitted, you know, his mistakes ah, me or later, ah,
10:11 am
about 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 uphold 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 endorsed democratic candidates for president. he put duty to
10:12 am
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 in iraq, many a blaming column power for the 2003 invasion and the years of war that followed a man died but will not forget what he did to iraq and his wrong policy, which led to today. he was difficult to handle and didn't want to build to iraq. this feel policy led to the destruction and to all would be felt iraq. and it unfortunately took us backwards. in india, the southern states have carola more flooding is expected. 10 dimes on nearing capacity and that has been forced to reopen off the heavy rain. thousands of people
10:13 am
have been moved to relief camps. at least 30 people have died in the past week. at least 43 people have been killed by attackers in northern nigeria. so called her state gunman, storm the market and got on the o. on sunday. their assault carried on into monday morning. attacks by gangs have been increasing in that region. so head on al jazeera canada has begun to face the reality of the truth of this country. after a long delay canada in 5 minutes to visit a former residential school where the remains of indigenous children were found and find out why people in parts of the laser have been told not to eat certain seafood, like climate oysters. ah
10:14 am
hey, there your world's weather update begins in europe and we've got a weather makers striking us with some heavy rain whales right into central england . but there is some warm air to be found will call the dividing line pretty much copenhagen. so north of that, a cool pool of air, we do have frost advisories across lithuania. and then south of that, look at this. we've got some temperatures in the 20s, but my, all my seats are going to change. check this out. a comes crashing down in london by the end of the week. just have 12 degrees, it's below average, but hey, lease, it's going to be dr. continues to be dry, cross iberia, some of the best weather on the continent were hanging on to some thirties, seville at 32 degrees, but look at this in incoming weather maker. it's going to give us some rain, northwestern spain, northern and central areas of portugal on wednesday, much quieter weather picture across the south east of europe, where we had that torrential rain in greece, the remnants of it now over turkeys, northeastern black sea region. so tribes on still getting into that driving rain on
10:15 am
tuesday or in this weather broadcast right now in africa where the storms are bubbling up. cameroon nigeria. but also as we look toward benito gone right through into the ivory coast. so abi john has a high $27.00 degrees on tuesday that shopping the end of the country with an abundance of resource raid far and wide indonesia, his ferns forming, we moved full to growth and frock. we balance for green economy, blue economy, and the digital economy with the new job creation law, indonesia is progressively ensuring the policy reform to create quality jobs investment. let's be part linda. this is growth and progress. invest in indonesia. now, lou,
10:16 am
the me welcome back. you're watching out the time to recap the headlines now. north korea has testified at least one ballistic missile into the sea of japan. south korea is military says, the weapon may have been designed for submarine launches. main. mog, military government is releasing prisoners who a jailed for protesting against the coo, joan, to says more than $5600.00 will be freed. it follows the exclusion of lead me on lang from an upcoming asian summit, the by the ministration top and vote for gamma san who negotiate to the us exit with the top bar and the step down. my cutting inside will be replaced by his
10:17 am
former death, thomas west. returning to our top story north korea's missile launch while, while hardy cha tom is in a junk professor of political science and international affairs at temple university in japan. he joins us by skype from tokyo, good heavy. we're so 1st of all, what is north korea? try? what kind of message is it trying to send to regional countries by conducting this test? so soon after the us kind of reaffirmed its readiness to resume talks. right, well, there are various reasons why north korea would want to do with test like best. there's usually a combination of various reasons for a very technical purpose that north korea odyssey wants to test s l b n. so this is what it seems to have tested this morning. so a submarine launched ballistic missiles. these kind of missiles will be very useful as a deterrent in case of a warrant. that makes perfect sense for north korea to try to invest in this kind
10:18 am
of missile and to test these missiles. it also wants to keep up with other countries in the region. we're seeing something that is similar to kind of arms rates at the moment. and north korea certainly wants to keep up with south korea, which recently also developed his 1st us submarine launch ballistic missile. it obviously wants to put pressure on the united states as while it wants the united states to drop or live some of the sanctions on north korea, which the united states doesn't seem very, very keen to do at the moment. and there's always finally the domestic component components of these missiles, it's important to kind of rally the population behind the leadership. so these, these are nutshell the kinds of reasons why north korea would have conducted such a provocative test this morning. ok. but coming back to the diplomatic angle, it is north korea trying to just increase its leverage and talk. so trying to actually undermined the prospect of tools. well, it always, traditionally, north korea tried to increase its leverage in parts,
10:19 am
which is why when ever there were going to be diplomatic meetings, whether we're talking about the 6 party talks, whether we're talking about one on one meetings or bilateral meeting meetings with the united states. it was very common for north korea to kind of do a demonstration of for us to show that it had the upper hand that to try to try to get more concessions from its counterparts, mostly the united states. so this is like the indeed what north korea is trying to do at the moment, although it might appear to little perplexing, given the fact that north of the united states has reached out to north korean bite and said very clearly, they're willing to meet north korea without precondition and it can, john regime so far has rebuffed to all of these overtures by the united states over and you mentioned the whole issue of submarine technology launches. what does this test reveal about planning young's military development? how far it's got along down that road. right, right. well that's a great question over the last few years. there have certainly been some
10:20 am
significant advances by north korea. there's been a flurry of tax over the last few weeks, not only the past from this morning, but there was recently a long range cruise missile that they tested. north korea has also, has also claimed to have tested a hypersonic weapon. there are very few countries in the world and master this technology, so it really illustrates very vividly the extent to which north korea is willing to do almost anything. it can to make sure to have as powerful a to turn to as possible and to make sure that it is able, the regime is able to survive in the face of what it sees as a hostile us policy toward north korea. so it's all about really increasing its revival and it determines kit and determine capabilities. all right, good. talking to thanks for your thoughts that thank you very much. a you and envoy as arrived in zimbabwe to assess the impact of years of us in the u sanctions. the measures were designed to prevent government corruption, which is still rife,
10:21 am
according to the opposition. hallmark also reports from ha you in special wrapper to elena to hand is in zimbabwe to assist the impact of sanctions sanctions that were imposed in 2002 after accusations of electoral fraud and human rights abuses. backward, roberts mac gabby was in charge. emerson and gaga is now president, his administration says those sanctions are stolen, economic development, and hurting the bobby into one defensive remote because there are fixed it every 1st little for life. so in a nutshell, our document that we are going to give them will clearly indicate the effects of fences or not so fair to the united states. the european union and britain insisted restrictions only tell the companies and specific individuals both live as the bobbin government and those associated with it. that's the united states, embassies and bobbins who want the sanctioned removed. having protesting here for
10:22 am
more than 2 years, they believe the government is being punished by the us. britain and the european union was even white, owed farms more than 2 decades ago. most the bobbins are struggling to cope with high unemployment inflation and rising fleet prices. those capping outside the u. s . embassy, blame the country's economic crisis on what they call politically motivated sanctions. they taco for who know? i think these law for the role of look in, if i'd be to fight the precise teams in the way in the world. so some of this issues they took off human rights up to quite sure if they knew issy and not is happening in all those countries, but function desperate they are not under sanctions. so what for special upwards and barbara elena do have plans to spend 10 days in zimbabwe on a fact finding mission. she would then present her report to the un human rights council next september,
10:23 am
opposition leaders and civil society groups here. so they hope to meet her to their blames, the bob was economic problems on government, corruption and mismanagement harder. matessa al jazeera had at the head of lebanon's has the law movement says he has a 100000 trained and armed fighters at his disposal. hassan osalla spoke off to violence in or has the law stronghold of beirut last week. 7 people were killed, a smaller blames the christian party called lebanese forces buses will la. while mickey that's just has the law and i am just talking about the man. i am talking about the live by need, and i'm touching up the lebanese from 100 years, not from 10 years trained, organize, structured with experienced and embodied spirit. and even they just got a glance not even ordered. if they were given a chance, the kid were on to the mountain. right is down 100005

10:26 am
clear, you could see the sand, we didn't have any problems here. now the river is polluted and it smells bad. sediment and development have altered the course of the river. it no longer flows to the sea. and around 10 years ago, it became more susceptible to red tides, a name given to a phenomenon, when a higher than normal growth of tiny single celled lp happens, the boom of al gay causes discoloration in the water. i'm going to scoop some of this water out and you can see there's a rough color tinge to it. red tides now occur here as often as once a year and can last for weeks. even months to modern philip at pollution can be a factor. the hot weather to and in this particular spot of the river devoted, he's very calm. this can all produce conditions that are right for all good to multiply faust. not all algy are toxic, but tested by the fisheries department show. the lp in the getting river is of the
