2:04 am
missionaries, or whether the united nations needs to expand its peacekeeping operations in a nation where hostage taking is now on average in every day occurrence. john henry and al jazeera millers burg ohio. well, manuel rapids joins me now from the haitian capital money. so what's the latest you are hearing on the ground about the ransom of the gang behind the kidnapping? so information on the status of the 17 missionaries is quite limited. we don't know if those $70000000.00 is going to be shelled out by the aid organization. a $1000000.00 per head as the gang has put it. but local authorities here in puerto prints are working hand in hand with us of federal agents to find a resolution to the case of these. 17 missionaries, we know that this gang 400 of mulatto is very well known here in port a prince. they are, are known actually for these types of brazen kidnappings. just in april there was
2:05 am
a kidnapping of a catholic clergy by this same group. now we can also tell you that the attitude from people here in port princes the day that we arrive have been quite tense people are. people have been protesting who are protests on monday. the were protests on tuesday. the day that we arrive, people calling attention to violence, calling attention to this worsening trend of kidnappings. and we should note that while this specific case of the 17 missionaries, whoa, as sort of captured international headlines for the simple fact that 16 out of the 17 missionaries are us citizens. in just the 1st 3 quarters of 2021. there been more than 600 reported kidnap uses is a very serious problem. here in haiti and people are, are calling for accountability. people are quite angry with the government, but more so than anything else. people are afraid and simply because in the wake of the assassination of haitian president of nell noise in july of this year,
2:06 am
there has been this spike in violence, the spike in fighting between rival gangs seeking to control different areas of puerto prince and people are scared that they're going to be caught in the crossfire of this, of this ter, for here in the haitian capital. now authorities have not been very vocal about the security situation. they haven't been vocal about the status of these uh these missionaries, but a source within the office of the haitian prime minister did tell al jazeera that we should expect, ah haitian authorities, federal authorities to give an update on these efforts to free these missing mercenaries and this is something that was actually brought up by u. s. secretary of state entity blinking earlier today where he was saying that these efforts by the u. s. in these efforts, these joint efforts with haitian authorities could be hampered if the deteriorating security situation on the ground here in the haitian capital isn't brought under control. all right, mano rapid alive was the importer, prince money. thank it. now north korea says it's testified
2:07 am
a new ballistic missiles from a submarine. the day off to south korea and japan detected a weapons launch north korean state. meta reported that a new type of submarine launched ballistic missile was fired from the same submarine involved in a 2016 test intelligence cheese from the us, japan and south korea met after the launch. north korea has conducted a series of weapons tests in recent weeks. let's bring in, david said me, he's a former deputy assistant secretary defense for east asia. he joins us from falls church in virginia. david. good to have you back. so if this indeed is a new type of ballistic missile from north korea, how worrying is this? and what's it telling us about the north's missile technology? well, i think it's quite wiring, not just for south korea and japan, but actually for countries throughout the world. now the ability to launched ballistic missiles armed with nuclear weapons from me, a summer rain that gives north korea much greater reach than many people had
2:08 am
believed at hand before. now of course, they haven't moved that summer in far from your coast yet. now they haven't shown the full capabilities, but when, when north korea has shown over the years, is the ability to do what it says. so the continued testing of nuclear weapons, the expansion of their ballistic missile arsenal. and now this addition of a summary launched ballistic missile, i show that that north korea is a threat again, not just to the region but to the entire world. and david, this comes against the backdrop of stole d. neutralization talks with the united states. what methods do you think pyongyang is hoping to send with these launches? well, they've been very direct about their message, both in these launches and a display of new missiles earlier in the year. what they're saying is they don't trust the act states don't trust the rest of the world. and they are prepared to use nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that in case they feel threatened, um they're trying to use what people, some people call hedgehog strategy to try and get now the rest of the world to
2:09 am
resume what it was doing in the past. which was paying north korea to not be a threat. it is interesting, david, because relations have been warming between the north and south lately at with pyongyang, agreeing to reopen the official hotline with so early this month. will that stay on track? do you think? well, it's interesting this launch of a summary missile by north korea follows the launch of a ballistic missile from a self to read summary about a month and a half ago. so it was the same time some of these political relationships, as you mentioned, are saw on the military side. south korea is accelerating. it's a military capabilities because it has less and less trust in the united states, particularly after the reign of donald trump. just a final thought to david, japan's new prime minister female casita says japan would respond resolutely to this missile launch from the north. how worried our regional players like japan to
2:10 am
these up and down tensions on the korean peninsula? are there quite worried that the relationship between north korea and japan? i have been mainly down over the last decade, the nautilus, japanese have made really strong efforts to try and reach out to north korea. they've been robust almost at every turn. and this, these missile launches are really aimed more at not at south korea, the traditional frontline, the enemy of north korea or the united states. but at japan and other countries in the region. but the japanese are quite worried and they should be they would certainly really good to get your thoughts. thank you very much and even talking to us. thank you. now dozens of palestinians have been wounded and arrested in scuffles with israeli forces and occupied east jerusalem as thousands celebrated a muslim holiday. israeli forces moved in on damascus gate in the old city for the 2nd day in a row on both monday and tuesday, activities for families were taking place there. to celebrate the prophet muhammad

2:15 am
a weapons launch of korean state me to report that the missile was flawed from the same submarine involved in a 2016 test, a gang, but could not members of a us base christian missionary group is demanding a $1000000.00 for each person. the 16 americans and one canadian were taken while returning to port or prince from an orphanage in the town of gun pierre, that's east of the county. and pictures of emerges of damage caused by government airstrikes on the capital of e p. at this tick roy region. these 3 people were killed in michaela. strikes were denied by the government, but come days are often new offense was launched against to gripe forces a u. s. congressional committee investigating john was assault on capitol hill in washington, dc. it's the pairing for contempt. so it's a long time donald a donald trump, a steve bannon, if he democratically controlled committee votes in favor as expected, it'll pay the way for a full boat by the house of representatives later this week. and that could lead to a criminal case against band of particle, hey,
2:16 am
joins us live now from washington dc party. so just talk us through what we're expecting to happen with this vote in the house. well, in just about 15 minutes time, we think it will be a fairly short order that we do expect. it's probably going to be unanimous. there's 7 democrats on the committee to republicans. obviously this has become a very partisan issue. republicans objected to having this bipartisan committee. there are 2 long time critics of donald trump, republican members of congress that have joined the committee. so it does have a bit of bipartisanship. we expect that they are going to go ahead and endorse this . so what is all this about steve bad and was once a very close confident of donald trump, he was basically thrown out of the white house not long after trump was inaugurated, but he became and continue to be a loyal friend to trump well on ban. and radio show on january 5th, he told his audience that in this is a quote, all hell is going to break loose in washington dc tomorrow. and he said it's going to be quick like anybody expected. so what did he know about what was going to
2:17 am
happen? was it planned? that's what the committee wants to do. they want to hear from them. they want to see these documents. he said, no, he said, i'm not going to because president trump has and has said that it's covered under executive privilege. problem with that is donald trump is no longer the president joe biden is. and joe biden says, nope, that not executive privilege, that doesn't count here. so basically now they're, they're sending the message to ban in that you can try this, but you're going to lose. so this is the 1st step in the process. yeah. proxy. so what happens next in the house? it's like to play out, do you think well, and that's a concern for democrats, because they think the banner could really sort of dry his feet. and if he was able to do that, and if republicans take control of congress in the mid terms, then they could bury the inquiry. so what this is, what will happen now is the committee is going to go ahead and pass this. they're going to pass it to the floor of the house. likely it's going to pass the floor, nancy pelosi, the speaker of the household, and refer the matter to the u. s. attorney in washington. who will work with the
2:18 am
attorney general. they will that need to, under the statute convene a grand jury, and for grand jury comes back and says, yes, there's enough for this criminal charge. then there's a trial. and again, the justice system moves incredibly slowly. so if there is a trial and he's found guilty, could face up to a $100000.00 fine or up to a year in jail. i so it obviously pretty high stakes. the bigger point here is the democrats and in this committee want to send the message to all the other trump associates, that they're going to play hardball, that they are going to try and get you jail time if you don't comply. so at the beginning of a process, but a very high stakes one at that. all right, a particle hang live for sand, washington patty, thank you. at least 50 people have been killed in a road accident in southern democratic republic of congo just to passengers survived. when a truck overturned and plunged into a river in health, catan got brought in on sunday. bad roads. poorly trained drive was an old vehicles, a blame for high accident rates in the d. r. c. at least 24 people have died and

2:20 am
live in downstream along the petty of river as far as the city of co ci have been put on alert in case of flooding from the release of water. now they doing this because there is more heavy rain predicted for all of canada from wednesday, and this is what the states water resources minister told us about the preparations dinardo. i'm horrible for all the dems are under control now. and the government has made all arrangements regarding the delegation of people living in the catchment area of the dams and also to other places where this water could flow. no one is relocated as of now, as the water discharging is in a limited and controlled manner. now what the government is trying to do is avert the kind of disaster that happened during the months in floods of 2018 when at least 400 people lost their lives. the government faced criticism for both delaying
2:21 am
the decision to open the waters to release the waters rather from the reservoirs. and then once they made that decision for not giving any notice to people who were living downstream, those are both sides or just reasons to some of the widespread, much and destruction. they're also emphasizing then, the release of the water from the dance is being done in a staggered and in a controlled manner and catalyst chief minister that the state leader that i vision has said that they have increased the number of relief cams of shelters in the state 240, keeping in mind that as well as all of those people who will ready lost their homes over the past week 2002 and shelters. more might need evacuation because of the release of the water from the dams. and if those heavy rains which are predicted for wednesday do come through. now, the sen leading a probe into the brazilian government's handling of the pandemic has recommended.
