12:01 pm
have a live update. one of our great military leaders in man, overwhelming decency president joe biden, leads tribute to america's 1st black secretary of state colin powell. but iraqis, blame him for the devastation of thy country. ah, we begin in north korea and the launch of a ballistic missile. south korea is reposing, at least one was fired into the sea of japan. the military says the weapon may have been designed for submarine launches, a trilateral meeting of intelligence chiefs from the u. s. japan and south korea has been cold. they agreed to strength and cooperation. japan's prime minister is cancelling election events and condemning the tests. it's like your though it is very regrettable that the country has continued launching missiles since last month
12:02 pm
. the you couldn't sleep villa. i'd rather not predict north korea's intentions 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 have the latest from beijing now. well, according to the south korean government, it took place at 10 17 am on tuesday, local time from the area in north korea on the coast known as sin pole. now this area is the base of north korean submarines. it has a naval shipping yard there as well. now what we don't know is whether dismissal was launched from the submarine. and if it was, this would be the 1st successful test of this technology by north korea, or whether it was fired from the test barge. as p young has done previously, we do have some conflicting report. south korea says it was just one missile. while japan says there were 2 missiles. now shortly after it was flying, south korea security council convened. they expressed deep regret at the incident,
12:03 pm
echoing the sentiments of japan's prime minister. the u. s. has released the strongest statement condemning the test, urging north korea to refrain from further destabilizing acts and china for its pull. it had very muted language. it simply urge both policies, both north and south korea to continue efforts to maintain peace in the region. japan is particularly concerned about this slide. just off the coast of japan, japan so far says there were no damages or casualties, but they are keeping a close eye as is china and south korea of course. and the for good reason. they're also racing themselves for possible future missile tests. this is the 8th so far this year. bye young young. earlier test breached un sanctions. and the last test before this was just a few weeks ago, at the end of september, when come young tested a hypersonic missile by law. the shop found is an adjunct professor of political
12:04 pm
science and international affairs at temple university, japan. he explains why north korea would conduct test so soon after the u. s. reaffirmed readiness to resume talks. it always, traditionally north korea tried to increase its leverage and talks, 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 were bilateral meeting meetings with the united states. it was very common for north korea to kind of do a demonstration for us to show that it had the upper hand 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, all though 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 the can. john regime so
12:05 pm
far has rebuffed to all of these overtures by the united states over over the last few years. there have certainly been some significant advances by north korea. there's been a flurry of tests over the last few weeks, so 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 illustrate very vividly the extent to which north korea is willing to do almost anything. it can to make sure to have as powerful a deterrent as possible and to make sure that it is able, the regime is able to survive in the face of what it sees as the hostile us policy toward north korea. so it's all about really creasing in survival and it determines kit, in deterrent capabilities. main mas, mandatory government is releasing political prisoners. relatives have been waiting out by the prison in the young, gone to be grants freedom to those. it's
12:06 pm
a part in the queue demonstration, but most of the leaders of the former government, including on fans to cheat, will remain in detention. mean mars move follows a decision to exclude the gym to lead a min online from an upcoming summit. money. my sister was arrested after someone reported her for publishing books. they ordered 50 books from her and arrested her with police vehicles and military trucks. i hope that she gets released soon. she has 2 kids at home. i want her home as soon as possible. skyler has more now on the reasons behind the amnesty, the un special repertoire to me and me are put it pretty much in those words. he said that, you know, these print they, they welcome the prisoner releases. but they said that the un said that they should never, never have been put behind bars to begin with. and it's not necessarily a change of heart, but it, them reacting to pressure. and that pressure really started last weekend when
12:07 pm
asi on the block of 10 nations here in se asia said that the leader, that the job to lead him in on line was not going to be attending a summit and aussie on summit that will be next week at the virtual summit that he is not invited a non political member from me and mars joint 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 men on lie of the agenda is not going to be attending that out on. so it will 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 judge will be interacting

12:09 pm
for a stage. so some of them have spilled a lot into neighboring states like so could, although they keep talking. so could from time to time in from that basis in some for and other parts of north what's to niger. but now we understand that these benefits, according to officials, also have moved from that basis after they've been dislodged by military as strikes and ground operations. and they are targeting communities in other parts of north western nigeria, especially as states like so called to state. and why are we seeing security deteriorate in the north? likely? basically you saw me the northwest has vast areas in one state, in particular commuter state. you can fit in the entire states in the southeast of the country, 5 of them into that state and who still have some space. now, you also have issues of governors. these that are a lot of and govern spaces in the north west of the country,
12:10 pm
like just in the northeast of the country. why bulk or another? and i've been operating there is little or no government presentations, funding areas, no infrastructure, no security presence, nor government facility is bad in terms of government presence, there virtually deserted, so gross, a criminal alarm goes, have taken over these spaces and operating as well. in fact, they've been imposing taxes and functions and communities like just like book or i'm did in the north west in the northeast of nigeria. and then i also feel that some of the book what i'm fighting just lot from military operations in the north east of nigeria. i've moved into the south what not the west of nigeria where they are operating alongside. i'm groups like the like the bandits as the official here called them and they're also getting a lot of money by the way, kidnapping, for rent. some is high right now in the north of the country and in the notes in front of my junior why i'm groups have been gathering hundreds of millions of
