10:06 am
a coalition with will two of the smaller parties that have won a round about a lesson seat he could be looking at possibly two coalition partners what does he have to consider in the bigger picture of what's going on in pakistan at the moment . well we don't know what imran khan is thinking right now i think there will be concentrating on making sure all that they've got the right number of reported all of the right number of walls however it is something important to understand there and progress on the signals coming out from the all police in at this moment are make. no why why why should he be the leader of the bugs on muslim league now was he's already in big eight days he's quite happy to trigger on the open they can bend we also have to understand that the people's party has done much better than they did in the last election and they have a new young leader who has also won from his home constituency in larkana stole it
10:07 am
will be up to the door democratic parties to understand to work together to come to some sort of an arrangement so that progress on democracy and nor did a god what the right wing is now trading. they're doing good they did the late going to be considered null and wide a large number of them for going dad men dead had to be rich but very legit by day they're barely able to get the budget done people's party on board and muslim league now are gone bald and they're now your d.h. and that would be a daily double broadhead and make it even more and. then they went before a pretty girl by the country and we will get a clear direction out the way through the state of affairs going for a while get on the electric bike and don't bury it indeed for the election commission to announce those results and announcement from the party leaders later thanks kemal. our other top story any gesture from north korea amid the push to

keep nuclear talks with the us moving forward it's handed over the reigns of fifty five american soldiers killed during the korean war now a u.s. military plane was allowed into north korea on friday morning to pick up the remains and bring them to a base in south korea kim jong un had promised to return the bodies during his meeting with donald trump in june it's believed the remains of five thousand three hundred u.s. soldiers are still in north korea more than sixty years after the fighting stopped friday marks the sixty fifth anniversary of the armistice that ended the war gabriel is under has more from washington d.c. . the handover of these remains of these u.s. service members was one of the clear actions that was in the singapore communique from june when u.s. president donald trump met the north korean leader kim jong un over there in singapore and this was all part of it the handover of these remains it's unclear
10:09 am
why it took so long after the singha sports summit for this to happen but we do know that secretary of state my phone pale was over north korea recently and it's probably safe to assume that this is very high up on his list of pressuring the north korea's koreans to make this happen now over the years there's been a handover of repatriation of some other american soldiers that were lost during that war but it's believed that there are still five thousand three hundred u.s. service members that are unaccounted for from the war and it's believed that the north koreans pav about one hundred to one hundred fifty or so remains still ready to hand over to the americans at some point now what happens next there will be a formal and likely somber ceremony that will be next week honoring the fallen soldiers from this war so long ago. one israeli settler is dead and two
10:10 am
others injured after being stabbed in the occupied west bank now the attack happened in are them south west of ramallah a palestinian suspect was killed after entering the settlement and carrying out the attack. and it internal israeli military report is expected to find no grounds for further investigation into the recent killings of palestinian protesters by army snipers israeli media is reporting the army will not refer any soldiers to the military police over their conduct reports say the military is blaming operational mishaps for the deaths of anyone who was not an intended target our correspondent andrew simmons joins me now from west jerusalem operational mishaps andrew what does that actually mean and obviously what repercussions could there have been if any. well firstly this is a report in horowitz newspaper no other publications have gone with this it is said
10:11 am
that it's expected according to the newspaper for this internal inquiry to rule that as you say there were no open fire orders is really the term used for this and that it leads on for the conclusion that suggested by this report that these are total of one hundred fifty three palestinian deaths were not intentional the weren't individual targets made by israeli army snipers in the this instance it covers a period from march thirtieth until july the fall the fourteenth right the way across the gaza strip border with israel and there is what has to be said that this report isn't necessarily the end of the affair because it's being conducted by
10:12 am
a brigadier general it will then be moved up another notch in the army command and it's possible for any more senior officer to rule that the could be individual investigations are against individuals so by no means is this a done deal this is a report that isn't confirmed by the army i hasten to add we have put in for a comment where blessing to hear back from them on this right now in deed of course as we head towards friday perhaps we also focusing on the gaza border but of course let's talk about a stabbing incident happened in the occupied west bank late on thursday what more details you have about bot. yes up was an attack by a seventeen year old palestinian man he entered the illegal. settlement of adam in the occupied west bank and there was a tussle he brought out a knife and killed one israeli settler there were two others injured one seriously
10:13 am
the more lightly injured one is reported to have opened fire and killed this palestinian attacker that isn't confirmed but it certainly raised tensions in that area it's the first stabbing attack for a number of months now back in march was the last one and of course this all adds to a really tense feeling right across the occupied west bank and indeed gaza right now where you have that report which is not a good timing for it really in the run up to friday prayers which is always the trigger point for protests in gaza much concern about just what will happen in the roll out of events in the wake of three how mass fighters being killed by israeli army back and wednesday and another flare up in the violence more concern about what implications this has for peace moves right across the board

a research fellow at the institute for north korean studies in your. university good to have you with us this is a move that probably will help continue to build trust between north korea and the u.s. that's important at this time. but definitely it is very important for the u.s. and north korea to build trust first this is the one of the four agreements stipulated in the joint statement signed by mr king's own of north korea and mr donald trump of the united state in singapore so in meeting a pro so. you just have to show the world that they are genuine in fulfilling the agreement and progress has been made indeed i mean this is a deliverable issue that you might say it's low on the agenda it's the fact that it works for both sides but the issue and what they're working towards is the discussion over denuclearize station there the steps towards that are much
