7:06 pm
so far as the spokesperson for the mine is saying that all of the miners have been accounted for and aren't in any danger but of course reeling from the unions who are concerned about the hydration just how long they've been on the ground and also trapped underground to might be needed medication just in general so they are worried about the length of time the miners sure as assured everybody that there is anything to worry about they have said that they've brought in generators to try and get those miners. to get them up so far have managed to get electricity to two of the shafts but one shot remain without power the generators up to now haven't worked and so it's not clear when the mine will be able to get these miners up if that will happen tonight. in the hours after that or i will keep it on that's of minute thanks very much indeed tell us more about

7:09 pm
but india is where the mass graves were discovered. but when i was talking to some of the refugees amounted to me he had he had buried four hundred in thirty plus body before he escaped his town. and i. grow names of people who. i let you kill for missing so this is something that needs to be investigated and this is why we've called for a fact finding mission and human rights watch says there's growing evidence of genocide in rakhine state what is most worrisome about this report beyond obviously the killings is now the effort to cover this up that they discovered. in some instances acid is being used to burn off the features of the people killed or burned off the fingerprints to try to obstruct any accountability and that shows
7:10 pm
a degree of pre-planning that will really i think impact the international community's decisions about whether this is constitutes genocide or not you know mars government has previously denied any reports of a massacre it has now cut off access to good up in other than tightly controlled government trip to the area north of what kind state where there was violence has been closed off to the u.n. humanitarian groups and journalists it's got harder al-jazeera yangon israel says it's adamantly opposed to a polish bill that would make it illegal to suggest it was complicit in the nazi holocaust herman's upper house but the draft legislation despite objections from israel and from the united states as this report. the polish senate voted overwhelmingly to approve new holocaust legislation that makes it a crime to refer to wartime nazi extermination camps as being polish or to accuse

7:16 pm
news agency. israel and the united states have criticized ponens decision to approve a bill that would impose jail terms for suggestions it was complicit in the holocaust . now the man who drove his van into a crowd outside a london mosque last year has been found guilty of murder and attempted murder one person was killed and nine people were injured when darren osborne rammed his valiant west was in finsbury park prosecutors said osborn was influenced by far right ideology and motivated by hatred of muslims u.k. correspondent ought to be phillips as this report. daryl's born in a pub in wales days before the attack the police call him a hate filled with a history of violence drug and alcohol abuse in the pub he wrote a letter which was found in the van he used for the attack a letter so full of hatred for muslims say the police that it's too offensive to release he rents the van to drive to london police say to find muslim targets he
7:17 pm
says he wanted to kill opposition labor leader jeremy corbin he drove all over london arriving at the muslim welfare house in finsbury park after midnight where people were leaving after ramadan prayers and one man back alley happened to fall ill on the street c.c.t.v. footage shows the van moments before it drove into the crowd on the left of the screen. down all the corn drove down this road the seven sisters road into this little cul de sac where a crowd of people were trying to help mark riley who by coincidence had fallen ill just a few moments before he plowed into the crowd as he got out of his van i wouldn't think court said that he was smiling the local him and protected him from the crowd until the police arrived moments later the crew say that this was an attack on all londoners why do you know why the police have released a call from someone who asks for help for macro is he conscious.
7:18 pm
then specifics we hear the attack. are already come out of people are going oh oh. the police told me darren osborn acted alone but right wing extremism is a growing threat in britain we have arrested more individuals than we've ever done in relation to domestic extremism related activity. we've seen three groups described by the government the government was also appointed a new extremist commissioner which is welcome. and we are pushing more people through our prevent and channel program relevant to again this category of people down those boards attack was a shock to a very diverse community in this part of london a troubled individual who turned into a politically motivated killer barnaby phillips al-jazeera finsbury park in north london. the f.b.i. is questioning the accuracy of a secret congressional members the claims law enforcement tools we use for
7:19 pm
political purposes in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election the memo written by top republicans and members of the house intelligence committee suggest the f.b.i. and justice department misused their powers while investigating the trump campaign but as we know it's a white house correspondent can be how could he joins us live from washington d.c. say they've agreed to release this memo what are we likely to see is well that is the million dollar question at this hour it seems that when we might get that in terms of the timeline is becoming more and more murky there certainly has been a loud cry from not just the f.b.i. but also democrats not to release this and now what we're hearing there has been some reporting here in the united states that in fact we know that the white house is is certainly looking at this under legal review but may now in fact send this back to the house intelligence committee which is something that democrats on that committee say they've wanted all along given the fact that it has been revealed
7:20 pm
that the memo that originated that committee was voted out of that committee to go to the white house was in some way altered between at the time it left capitol hill and the time it left the white house where the legal team there had a chance to review it so it's unclear when this will be released we know the president as you heard in the state of the union and has been reported on for more than twenty four hours he said it's one hundred percent going to be released it needs to be released we've also heard the same from his chief of staff john kelly but whether or not that will happen in the next hour whether this will happen next week is still very unclear and whenever it does happen but of the implications of all this. the implications are grave to use the words of the f.b.i. in terms of public confidence in these institutions it's certainly been the perspective of the president that he believes that there are subversive elements within the intelligence communities even the department of justice that have been
7:21 pm
working to undermine his not just presidential campaign but also his presidency you've seen that in the firing of james komi the former f.b.i. director in the requests for pledge of loyalty by the deputy director advocate who has announced he's departing the f.b.i. even from the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein but it is certainly. worth noting the fact that the president is now clashing with the current f.b.i. director one that was appointed by donald trump it certainly gives us some insight into the mindset of the president how much mistrust the institutions that are certainly there to work alongside the executive branch and certainly this is a roving public confidence as well one that has been concerned about these institutions that predates the truck presidency and certainly there were concerns when eric holder was the attorney general there were accusations leveled that the department of justice and the f.b.i. were being weaponized but that is certainly intensified under the presidency of
7:22 pm
donald trump say plenty of children as need be released yet kimberly as when it is more from you than can be helped reporting. about twenty eight russian athletes had their lifetime bans from lympics sport overturned just over a week away from the winter olympic games in people trying another decision was made by the court of arbitration for sport after an appeal last month they were banned by the international olympic committee for doping at the two thousand and fourteen games and so the court has now found that there was insufficient evidence let's focus on we're joined now by our sports correspondent leigh welling's and leigh all this of course great news russia but what about going down to the i.o.c. headquarters and into committee this is the last thing the international into committee wanted or needed nick bain it in a position of being criticized for the past couple of years of being too lenient with russia we're going to see one hundred sixty nine russians already in pyongyang the neutral athlete from russia not the official flag people say that's a lot for
7:23 pm
a nation of a system but it's not it doping that now of course it's the other side where the russians can look at them and say well hang on a minute you didn't have enough evidence to take it to that degree with the individuals and that's why they haven't stopped that's why there are going to be lifetime bans or that they've been overturned the i.o.c. have come out and said this will have a serious impact on the future fight against open you can tell i don't think that these athletes a clane but there just wasn't enough evidence from russia wow this is the perfect thing for vettel putin who's had very little to work on now he's got all of this evidence to back him up and say well we've been cleared by the court of arbitration for sport so frankly it's just a complete mess isn't it it's an absolute mess punk chang i'll be covering it for. days a while he the destruction the good destruction has been a unified korea and that same that will take part that's been the big story the big political story and the i.o.c. of look like good guys with that one but with the russian dark cloud can the public
7:24 pm
trust what they see can when dulls and so was a bronzer one by updates neutral but actually from russia complete. in the gangs can the public trust what's going on the i.o.c. don't think so this is not what i want or need with the big event about to start and just quickly what these athletes themselves will they be able to compete will they be competing in probably i don't see it actually said the twenty eight have not been invited so it's whether russia can test that is whether the individuals have the time because also they've needed qualifying standards as well so actually get chang and compete if they don't they will feel they've been victimized discriminated against and you could see more legal battles or ali thanks very much indeed for that update lee wellings the turkish foreign minister has given an exclusive interview to ad zero about turkey's cross border offensive in northern syria. says his country has no interest in annex in parts of syria if
