and sacked its government on friday says new regional polls will go ahead in december. as a message that i want to convey sometimes is that we have to be patient but if we have to have perseverance and it was about money it is clear to us that the best way to defend what we have achieved so far is to have a democratic opposition to article one five five this is the response to the deliberate action against catalans who have for many centuries felt different we have to overcome any threats and to act in a civil and peaceful manner not wish to use force or someone else the majority government has praised him on will be allowed to take part in those december polls . but you know he has no powers no competence there's no financial means so i insist that if you want to continue in politics which is his right i think he should prepare next elections to be held as have mentioned before on the thirty

regional the actual police force of the spanish national police force and the civil guard and in fact to fact the commander of the force years luis perez actually was charged with sedition for failing to actually stop people from voting in what was described as an illegal referendum not only he has been sacked now but also the general above him a sort of the director of of him who is a political figure and all offices of being told to stay neutral now the most source actually god's this building behind me is the palace the seat of government should put him on actually come back to his office here he could well find that he's going to be arrested that could happen in the coming days furthermore other ministers could be arrested they could be actually technically jailed according to
legal experts so no one is quite sure how this is going to actually progress. and there is a real mood of uncertainty of trepidation here you know the extraordinary images you had in this square on friday night now being replaced by something of a surreal atmosphere seems normal when you look at it but certainly much more difficult than people actually realize in some places there's also another aspect to all of this and that is the preparation for the madrid government taking over jobs here ministers jobs and a whole raft of other things is a word from activists that they will they will actually stop any attempt to make arrests of government ministers and they may well guard public buildings like this one right now people are unsure who's in control here the spanish flag is still
flying above this building but in other places in catalonia right now particularly the flag is being withdrawn and people are quite concerned about exactly what is going to play out. anderson thank you very much indeed. leader of iraq's kurdish region is reportedly not planning to extend his presidential term past november the first parliament is you to meet on sunday to redistribute the powers held by must. be facing mounting pressure to quit foreign september's controversial secession referendum the iraqi government opposed the vote calling it unconstitutional. joins us now from the capital of the kurdish region so what we expect to happen exactly.
what it's all still unofficial and on can for of a certainly you know the the details coming out from various sources also to kurdish media advisers close to the president is that he seems to have sent a letter to parliament parliament which will be convening tomorrow afternoon two p.m. local time where he will be stating that he will not as you mentioned be seeking an extension of his presidential term not just to get into sort of the specifics of the floor and in term technically ended in two thousand and fifteen it was controversially extended now he said he was never going to run in new elections which was supposed to be held just coming up now november the fourth those elections have been postponed by eight months so we expect him to say that he will not be running it all sounds very little logical but it is actually hugely significant once we hear that official announcement because of what happened here because of the repercussions of that referendum but of course he they are headed that he despite the warnings from the international community and her and iraq's neighbors and baghdad went ahead with he always said in particular one quote in two
thousand and sixteen that i will stand down as president once we have an independent kurdistan so despite having this overwhelming yes vote ninety three percent the repercussions of course a huge huge turn turn in fortune for the kurds that no one would have expected stephanie to be the first thank you very much indeed. and he's ten people have been killed after two bomb attacks rocked the somali capital mogadishu one blast targeted a hotel where the president was due to hold a meeting the other was an apparent attack on the somali military comes just two weeks after a huge bomb killed more than three hundred fifty people but at zero ports from neighboring kenya this is the target of the first explosion of the mass of blood to tell a story about waves from the presidential palace a car was driven up to the gates of the hotel before exploding causing a blast that was hard across the city. at least three heavily armed fighters then

a practical solution the rice crops are ripe for harvesting and if they were left to just stand in the fields they would go to waste so the myanmar government has put in place a plan to harvest the crops bringing in combine harvesters and laborers to do the work and agricultural ministry spokesman has told us that the local government is in charge of the harvest and the eventual fail and the proceeds of the sale will go to the local government or there are no details on how they plan to use it but the other issue is this raises ethical questions as the asia director of human rights watch puts it you really can't call a crop ownerless when you've used a campaign of arson and violence to drive the owners from their land and this is what the myanmar military has been accused of doing and the other issue pertains to future use is this harbors perhaps the first step of the myanmar government to appropriate the land from revenge or refugees have been driven to bangladesh now if
it is it will raise other questions what about repatriation and resettlement of the refugees now granted we are a long way from that bangladesh and myanmar officials haven't yet worked out details of how they plan to repatriate range of refugees but they will have to be other questions that need to be asked such as where will they return to and what will they return to if their farms and villages are no longer there. at least thirty one people including eleven children have been killed when a bus crashed into a river in nepal it was filled with passengers coming back from a hindu festival when it skidded off the road about eighty kilometers west of the capital kathmandu it's unclear how many people were on the bus. yes defense secretary james mattis says the threat of a nuclear missile attack by north korea is accelerating speaking at an annual defense talks in neighboring south korea not just insisted that diplomacy was the preferred course of action but stressed it was only effective when backed by
credible force make no mistake any attack on the united states or our allies will be defeated any use of nuclear weapons by the north will be met with a massive military response the fact of an overwhelming tony betty is following developments from the south korean capital. there were strong words from the united states defense secretary he was here in seoul on part of a two day visit partly to discuss the defense of the peninsula which is an annual thing between the u.s. and south korea and partly to pave the way for president transfers it on the seventh and eighth of november now that visit in itself is creating increased tensions here and general mattis was at pains to warn north korea that any nuclear attack with weapons would be met with a very very massive military response and he did intimate that north korea could not win in that situation having said that his tone in the last two days has been
more conciliatory than that of president trump you may remember his fire and fury speech at the united nations in august and also his threat to totally destroy north korea and he has resorted to a word a war of words of mass destruction and people are worried that the world may turn to weapons there was a lot of concern here the united states is upped its defenses its bought three naval carrier groups into the region it's flown it's moved its f. thirty five stealth fighters to japan just in case the president trance visit produces some kind of reaction from north korea they've conducted six nuclear test most of those have been underground but the north korean foreign minister has warned that they will conduct an atmospheric nuclear test and who knows what that will provoke but there is a lot of concern on the korean peninsula that will happen what will happen general mattis is said basically the actions of north korea are provoking and accelerating the situation and causing a greater possibility of conflict on the korean peninsula but he also stressed that
the need was for diplomacy for talking he said the united states would not want war it wanted a denuclearization of the canary a korean peninsula now also said that he couldn't imagine any situation whereby the united states would accept a nuclear north korea now north korea is well on its way to being a nuclear power so something has to give the big question here is what will give and who will give it. u.s. media is reporting that a federal grand jury has approved the first charges in the investigation into russian meddling in last year's presidential election but charges are said to be still sealed under orders from a federal judge a special counsel robert miller a former f.b.i. director is leading the investigation he's looking into whether trump campaign officials colluded with russian efforts reynolds has more from washington d.c. . we don't know yet who has been indicted by special counsel robert muller in the
