5:00 am
essentially, analogies, yeah. who play an important role protecting you in a. ringback face m for north korea claims to have testified. a new type of ballistic missile from a summary. ah, well i'm darn jordan. this is al jazeera live from dough are also coming up a haitian gang that abducted us and canadian missionaries demons. $17000000.00 for their release. a u. s. committee investigating january's capitol hill riots supposed to hold donald trump's long time aid. steve bonham, in contempt of congress. and a month on the la palmas volcano, stop interrupting farmers. tell us that bracing for long term pain,
5:01 am
even after the lava storms. ah no korea says it's testified a new type of ballistic missiles from a submarine day off to south korea and japan detected our weapons launch. north korea made the announcement through state run media, which also released these pictures. it last tested such a weapon in 2019 washington. so i'm tokyo, have condemned the latest launch. the un security council will hold an emergency close door meeting on wednesday. these launches violate multiple un security council resolutions and our threat to the region we call m and t, p r k, to refrain from further provocations and engage in said stained and substantive dialogue and our commitment to the defense of the republic of korea and japan remains iron clad. these launches also underscore the urgent need for dialogue and diplomacy. our offer remains to meet anywhere any time without preconditions. so
5:02 am
let's bring in robert kelly. he's a professor of political science and diplomacy at boose on national university and south korea. robert, good to see again. so if this is indeed new type of ballistic missiles from north korea, how worrying is this? and what's it telling us now about the north missile capabilities? yeah, the advancement towards a submarine launch missile is actually a pretty big step. i mean, the most obvious thing it gives north korea is tremendous rain, right? you could send the submarine basically anywhere in the world as long as remains undetected, which is something of a challenge depending on the subs, agent, engine type. but i mean, as long as that means on the tech them, you could effectively launch from anywhere. the big advantage to north korea that this gives is what we called assured 2nd strike. in other words, even if the united states hits all of north korea, land based weapons, north koreans have submarines at sea, the launch. and so this makes it harder for the united states to pull a 1st strike against north korea, which is probably the reason why they, they, they built it. but there's also a potential offensive possibility,
5:03 am
which is that you would just park this thing off the coast california or something like that. and that is why you're going to see the american respond sharply as they have. yeah. and this, this comes against the backdrop of these stool di neutralization talks with the united states. what message is peeling young, hoping to send with these launches? will it i think i'm looking for the americans to offer more than just what you heard there from gen saki would, you know, we'll meet anytime anywhere. and that sort of thing. i think the north koreans really. so they kind of maybe got their head a little bit that donald trump personally met that are 3 later, 3 times in the north mains. now feel like they're entitled to similar presidential attention that joe biden himself should be somehow involved in that, that he should be speaking about north korea that he should be talking about. meeting the north korean leader. this is one of the reasons why american president hadn't met the north koreans before because there's something of a big give away. right. but now the north koreans gotten accustomed to it sort of used the presidential attention. i think that's what they want more from the americans and just envoys. my secretary, you know, spokesman and stuff like that. they want something higher up. let's talk about the south koreans where you are because relations have been warming between the north
5:04 am
in the south, lately, with young young agreeing to reopen the official hotline with sol early this month . will that stay on track? do you think it will probably because this program at the current president, when jane is basically a dot north korea and deeply committed to just kind of break through some kind of peace deal or piece regime with north korea to a certain extent that is involved him looking the other way on these north korean launches for she's gotten a lot of criticism in the conservative press here. but jane, his term is almost over and he's really deeply planted the flag of his presence if you want to break with north korea. so unless the north koreans actually like, do something open, the violent against south green assets like, has happened in the past. my guess is the south koreans will sort of keep quiet, which they have in the last couple days and say, you know, we're continuing to push towards towards pete. there is a political logic here just to final thought. you robert, japan's new prime minister, premier casita, he says his country would respond resolutely, he call it to this miss our launch home where we'd been our regional players like japan to these up and down tensions across the korean peninsula. why they give you
5:05 am
the japanese. the missile program is the real threat right here. south korea, you've already been under conventional work for a long time. the missiles and the nukes don't add too much. obviously they make things worse, but they don't add too much, right? it's really sort of powers that are further afield, more pre that are now being ranged by weapons. you know, and so you're japan, now they're building out all the different types of types of weapons presented with different types of warheads, possibly, you know, chemical as well as nuclear and plus not got a summary, which again means they can sort of park it anywhere which you know, dramatically shortens the time of flight. so i think that's why you see the japanese getting sort of increasingly nervous about this sort of pushing the americans, you know, get on top of this because i'm going to burling all the stuff where i next door, robert kelly. always good to get your thoughts. robert, thank you. thanks for having me. now, a gang that could not members of a us based christian missionary group is demanding a $1000000.00 for each person. the 16 americans and one canadian were taken while returning to port a prince from an orphanage in the town of gambia, east of

5:07 am
there were protests on tuesday. the day that we arrived, 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 it kid nappies. this is a very serious problem here in haiti and people 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 nel noise in july of this year, 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 turf war here in the haitian capital. brazilian senators

5:24 am
worship 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 damage and destruction. they're also emphasizing that 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 lead up to that i. v gen has said that they have increased the number of relief cams of shelters in the state 200 and keeping in mind that as well as all of those people who all ready lost their homes over the past week. the 1000 to shelters more might need evacuation because of the release of the water from the dams and those heavy rains which are predicted for wednesday to come through. a 96 year old woman accused of complicity and mass murder in the holocaust has appeared before a german court. prosecutors say in gulf 1st contributed to the death of almost

5:26 am
working for the lead on this camp. and she knew all these things and she was not forced to be their rooms was trying to live as well as the past. if you nation will forget the own history, then perhaps the house will come back again and will be in the center of the society again and germany and most of the european countries they have to take out of all these pos awesome. so try a t which could be in their mind in such a way is mrs force now in the time when she has been in the shadow of camp pass is never a past is always,
5:27 am
always in the midst of the society as well. now it's been a month since they come to have ok now on the spanish autumn of la paloma stop interrupting and sung to say, there's no sign. it will stop any time soon. more than 1800 buildings, mostly houses have been destroyed, and agriculture has been badly affected. alexander lurch is on the island where he's met, banana pharma. so why did they won't have anything left to harvest? for more than 4 decades. jose alvaro has worked with families plantation near the western coast of la palmer, but he says the month long volcanic eruption is now affecting his health. of there's not a i don't feel good, i don't want to work or eat. i don't want to do anything. but the situation we are now living in reviews and we have to continue in a typical year, alvaro could expect to harvest more than 13 tons of the islands,
5:28 am
much prized bananas. but the erupt means the fate of this season's harvest is uncertain. is my last, i don't know if it, but those kind of effects everything because of their when it's everywhere, reduce production and income. we are washing the bananas with water and blower. the net is extra work yet in the end we get practically nothing. when we try to sell them, it looks like their banners have been funded down inside the same state. but on the outside to the eye, it doesn't sell that the lava has destroyed more than a 133 heck tiers of banana farms. scientists warned the erupt could continue for several months, but say a lesson may be drawn from the islands history to the plantation. here we're going to talk to what blended be because the transport saw from other from other places. when they put this on the lava flows on isolated options,
5:29 am
so probably the future will, they will do the same. i mean, they will transport thousands of 2 week meet this, and they covered a lot of flow, so they will, they will have new plantations. i mean, the only way to recover it. once the lab has cooled, there is a chance that some of the land may be reclaimed in the coming months and years. but for the farmers, all they can do is wait for the option to end. while they hope that the help provided by the government is enough to see them through the year, the bananas or the engine of the economy on the canary islands accounting for 30 percent of jobs. the spanish government has designated more than $16000000.00 in financial aid to help farmers recover. local officials say the government should do more. the eula is the word of the dental community. the $14000000.00 euros of a to been provided to the community is a start, but it's only equivalent to what the affected areas produce in just one year.
5:30 am
