this place there was a village with peaceful working people running through the structure fully a floor these villages were completely destroyed my will is to show you all the lives it was here and to say be careful never ghana why more. these days it's hard to imagine the sheer scale of the terror that was unleashed on the hills above. but the last entry in a war diary by a french soldier gives you some impression he wrote that crazy to do what they're doing now what a bloodbath what horrible sights what a slaughter hell cannot be as hideous as this people are insane it was here president francois mitterrand chancellor helmut kohl held hands in a historic act of reconciliation and friendship between france and germany the tide of warfare may have moved to different shores but it still shows no sign of turning . david chaytor al-jazeera there dan. any number of

things going on online today to commemorate or almost as what did you come up with so much kemal but many on line at the moment are using the hash tag on a stay one hundred marking the day the king at how communities from all over the world contrary to or for jury world war one and more than three million people across the british empire and the commonwealth served alongside the british army including many muslims four hundred thousand of them in fact but some say that their contribution has been forgotten and a think tank called the british future is trying to revive that in schools today and they shed this clip on twitter. it's a pretty story people of every community should be aware of that significant contributions from so they. feel an ownership in the community they themselves feel they belong to. which i wasn't the only country which contributed to the success of the war but
12:02 am
those also indian people canadian people i'm australian people who helped out in many different ways someone might not be born here and they come over here. is interesting because you learn about that transition and who they are and how they feel about being british and that ethnic background how that mix is into that. and now shifting on to belgium a third generation moroccan is proud to learn about her family's contribution from north africa. from the us here in this learning about this part of history makes you feel stronger if you're confronted with your roots then you can say i was born here and this is my country if you learn about your grandparents contribution to country that was back then not theirs it just gives you more energy and it is empowering and the conversation goes as far as new zealand as you mentioned earlier around one hundred thousand new zealanders or ten percent of the population at the time served overseas during the war and over eighteen thousand of them were killed the nation's firefighters took part in

general william mats with an american flag as a symbol of our nation's gratitude to the american battle monuments the commission has done such an incredible job in general we very much appreciate it today we renew our sacred obligation to memorialize our fallen heroes on the soil where they rest for all of eternity thank you very much. general this is a great honor thank you very much u.s. president donald trump speaking at saran the cemetery there where he's been speaking about the sacrifices made by u.s. forces during the first world war today armistice day one hundred years since the end of the first world war james bays is out diplomatic editor in paris has been singing along to that as well i guess james this is the speech that we were supposed to hear yesterday when donald trump chose not to go to the cemetery
12:14 am
because of the weather. yes a different cemetery but there was a combination of paying respect to those marines that he was going to visit the graves of twenty four hours earlier and that clearly some of that speech was about them in this speech it's worth telling you about where he is right now saran it's on the outskirts of paris on a hilltop overlooking the city and worth telling you that there are mainly those that died during world war one one thousand five hundred and forty one veterans who died there although there are also twenty four unknown soldiers from world war two but it's worth telling you that they actually these people who are buried in surrender with those that died in military hospitals there are people who died because of their appalling wounds because of illnesses because of an influenza
12:15 am
epidemic i think an indication of the appalling conditions in the trenches jury in what is known as the go the great war ok james thank you james bays is our diplomatic editor in paris as we've been watching that speech from president trump now we also have max arthur with us who is a world war one historian author of several books on the great world wars joining us from london it's a pleasure to have you with us we get a lot of comments coming through to us on this show from our viewers watching on facebook and on you tube and the thing i'm getting from all of them is saying we haven't learned the lessons one hundred years later elizabeth has said we didn't forget world war one we ignored it and one of our other viewers raney has been saying although we remember the past we're still repeating it do you agree with that. war is very more the lone time where since a preemie of times. first there was
12:16 am
a grey and horrifying war you'd sink if any war is going to finish and in mine ever contemplating war it would have to be the first world war but the second world war was any twenty years afterwards so it remains a mystery to me as to why we're still fighting still developing arms. still getting ready for the next one ready would cause such a massive army war that americans chinese are massive on is ready for war and mirrored in the art of ours ever wants and you can see that from the sentiments on. the veterans that have been there men i met i never met really a first world war veteran agency the first who other than as some like i guess who keep going go ahead lou.
12:17 am
reich me yes i've got to go ahead write a so on are not. a not a tool sure why it continues but it does continue past everywhere in brit peroration for possibly another war. i think oh we haven't lost a breeze soldier in the last four years apart from some people in the special forces so there is good it's a good sign but what do you make of the lot of pillar eight hundred two what do you make of the sort of world order that we have now could be is is today we had seventy world leaders going to paris there are clear divisions in them and emanuel mccrone wasn't afraid to port to call it out was that he was wasn't afraid to say we have nationalism and we have patriotism and patriotism is better he said i sickly. crew of. pages
12:18 am
is such a tricky word to use. it's nice to feel pride in one's country's eden assyria have to go to war over it pressures in the feeding of growing into one country is fine and remarkable it's nationalistic and it's it's what we see a problem is cricket matches news that don't have to go to war to prove anything at all but we do. max out there i'm sorry a pleasure talking to you thank you for your time on this very important day. but i would say we've got more of that global perspective of course this is from al jazeera dot com an opinion piece on how the end of world war one actually much the beginning of some big changes in places like turkey and in the middle east as well and right down the bottom of the scroll further we haven't loops and embedded video there of a special series on al-jazeera called world war one through arab eyes so there's that one and then there's also a feature piece from tanzania on
12:19 am
a battle you've likely not heard about a four year guerilla war against a german force in east africa during world war one both of these pieces you will find just by searching for world war one around as they were dot com if you click the latest filter these have both been posted in the last five days or so as you find those pretty easily thank you for your comments as well coming in i read some about the gifts and as i say the overriding feeling is people saying that we haven't learnt lessons from first world from the first world war donna watching in australia points out that the first world war remains the costliest conflict for australia in terms of deaths and casualties and some of you struggling with watching president trump giving his speech there given the fact that he decided not to go yesterday because of the rain feeling there was a level of disrespect shown by the u.s. president your comments your questions the hash tag a.j. newsgroup on twitter facebook whatsapp and telegram now one of the attendees in paris was president reject type one of turkey he has just arrived home from those
12:20 am
events in paris he met as you're seeing here with president donald trump the white house says the two leaders discussed the killing of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi jamal i'll show you how it is with us to talk through that in istanbul bring us up to date with what came out of that meeting and any new developments. well come of the exact details of that meeting we expect to hear. within the next twelve hours or so on monday morning to actually present in our two undecided for a brief some people on the plane on the flight back i understand from my sources that he described his meeting with the u.s. president as a positive one however the details as i mentioned of that meeting won't be disclosed of until early on monday morning. this is obviously on the backdrop not only of the fact that the charts had shared information and the
12:21 am
evidence they have of the killing and murder of john paul two with the american counterparts but also on the wider things that comes on the backdrop of relations between iran and washington following that huge fallout over the trial of a past u.s. pastor was then eventually released as well as the u.s. imposing trade tariffs on strike and essentially effectively devaluing the currency so it would have here according to the talk president that they've overcome maybe those bad days so to speak of those relationships she's case playing central to the discussions there but also on economy. relations as well in those meetings aside from that one of the main talking points that are also indirectly related to this is the war in yemen come out as you know there are a lot of countries have been talking about how there is a need now to evaluate the policies that have been detrimental and essentially
12:22 am
damaging just ability not least the war in yemen and the fact that the u.s. is one of the biggest or the biggest rather military supplier to the saudis and has been refueling for example giving support to the fighter jets there there's talk about that there's been a protest outside the saudi consulate in stumble earlier today a couple of hours ago not that large but it was a loud one must be noted it was organized by people. i was simply calling for an end to the war in yemen but they are supporters of i did medical doctor with us the shia militia there so it's not a. objective let's say or neutral group but it does show that's the case of jamal khashoggi is much much broader and bringing in a lot of people to try and use it to further their own goals or principles or agendas ok thank you jamal as shale in istanbul and jamal talks about yemen you know at least sixty one people have actually been killed as the fighting intensifies in yemen this is the port city of her day that we're talking about
12:23 am
between those forces backed by the coalition and the rebels a group say the humanitarian crisis is dire as many caught in the conflict just lack access to the basic medical care for forces are trying to close in on who the held areas in the east of the city all of this says a hoot the information minister actually defected and fled to saudi arabia let's check in with mohammed oh he is following the story from djibouti at the moment mohammed good evening the latest from you on what's actually happening in the data this this escalation in attacks. good evening come all fighting is going on in a list very different from around. the city of the. part of the city fighting happening on the streets in some of the residential areas thousands of pro-government militia fighters who are being supported by united arab
12:24 am
emirates helicopters as well as the strikes have been cutting out. all through positions. east to take this strategic and vital port from the control of the fighters also know that the stakes are really high and losing a day that would also deny them much needed a moment of supplies for most of them all feels wrong and i've been putting up here resistance the concern right now is for the people who are still holed up in this city the people who could not leave when their neighbors. quite close up because of the wrong. checkpoints that have been put there by might is also concerned about what the fighting could. hold and ellen this eruption could be catastrophic for the entire yemeni.
12:25 am
we might leave you there sounds like it's getting a bit noisy behind you but thank you for that update from. we're looking at the california wildfires now where firefighters say they're up against some of the toughest conditions they have. the death toll now at twenty five with hundreds of thousands more people forced to leave their homes rob reynolds with the support now from malibu california. at least two hundred thousand people in southern california have been evacuated as the wildfire there has doubled in size our far far has been a seems an extreme. parkinsons that they say they've never seen him on. two thousand firefighters are battling the blaze many homes have been burnt to the ground in northern california a separate huge wildfire killed a number of people as they tried to flee the town of paradise the town itself was virtually incinerated dozens of people are missing in that area and authorities
12:26 am
fear the death toll may rise we've gone to lots of you know wild land fires over the years and this is one of the worst we have seen personally so it's pretty horrific. the fires broke out on thursday and fanned by high winds quickly raged out of control towering clouds of smoke were visible from outer space. on a trip to france president donald trump tweeted as california burned blaming the state's liberal democratic government for poor forestry management he threatened to cut off federal funds for overseeing california wild lands the winds are calm here at the moment but that's not going to last the weather forecast is for high winds picking up in the coming days so unless the weather conditions improve california's
12:27 am
wildfires may take a long time to die rob reynolds al-jazeera malibu california. actually let's just pick up on that tweet which rob mentioned there donald trump on saturday this is what he said in a bit more detail there is no reason for these massive deadly and costly forest fires in california except that forest management is so poor he goes on to say remedy it now or no more federal payments they don't sunday it was as if someone had taken this phone from him and tweeted a more sympathetic response so with those fighting the fires the fifty two thousand evacuated the families of the eleven as it was at that stage who have died god bless them all however it didn't last presumably at some stage just before the armistice celebrations in paris we had this once again with proper forest management we can stop the devastation constantly going on in california get smart . all of that will certainly be viewed by people as not terribly helpful given the circumstances but i've seen a lot of social media that is trying to really help people out all across
12:28 am
california and this raise awareness of the issue just more generally as well so i said we can see a lot of videos and pictures of the california wildfires and the aftermath being shed on line the fires have spread and the number continue to break out the los angeles county fire department operations is also sharing regular updates on that have on the developments on twitter as well there's also this interactive map which is a good indication of what is currently happening on the ground and they are continuing to update it as we can see there. but it was that tweet that kemal mentioned from donald trump which has drawn the most reaction and hollywood stars are among the most angry and many are concerned for their properties to say a katy perry called trump's tweet heartless and then you have the actress alyssa milano she quoted a response to that the california congressman ted lieu sched saying guess who owns much of the forest land in california your federal agencies california only two
12:29 am
percent guess who cut funding to forest management in the budget you did well milan a day go on to say that her house is still standing and she's currently on her way to bring firefighters water and food and the actor will smith has shared his video to twenty four million of his followers on instagram. you see on the news they don't read stuff. we're not in the. evacuation. zone. i don't like it we're going to go and then have others who are taking matters into their own hands actor james woods has been organizing efforts with community outreach and he's
12:30 am
edging people online to use the hash tag camp fire james woods help share resources throughout the state and people can register on the american red cross to mock themselves safe and also notify about missing family members and some have also been contacting woods directly asking him to help find the missing relatives and he has done so by retreating many of those posts there are also a lot of lodges as well taking donations for things like clothes and blankets and toys for those affected many showing pictures like this one so also help raise awareness so if you are currently there or if you know of another disaster recovery effort taking place in the area let us know is the hash tag aging is great just discussion goes to show doesn't it that celebrity rage the amount of follows you have an instrument to it it does have power in a an acute situation like this thank you for that repeal or with staying in the u.s. looking at the state of florida which is once again the center of an election battle eighteen years after the presidential race they descended into chaos
12:31 am
a recount has been ordered for two high profile races for governor and the senate after they were too close to call using the new york times interactive map a florida sixty seven election department will be given five days to recount or one point three i'm sorry i should point three million ballots cast this is the governor race republican run the census is ahead but only around thirty thousand votes as you see he gets most of his support from all those red rural areas democrat andrew gillum has his base in the urban centers i would also point out georgia just over the border also under side of brian campus a lead over the democratic challenger abrams who has not conceded trying to become america's first black female governor so that's what's happening in the governors' races we'll look at the senate as well a close race. let me start here arizona again and off to warrant a recount right now it's the democrat kirsten sonoma who is leading but it is florida again that has got people talking republican challenger rick scott only in
12:32 am
by around thirteen thousand votes over the incumbent bill nelson and just as it is in the governor's race you see it again that very clear split between the rule republican areas and the urban democrat and so what is it just what is it about florida gabriel elizondo starts off with that. the midterm elections are over but not in florida the race for governor and senate are still undecided too close to call so winners have not yet been announced in the senate race republican rick scott got fifty percent of the votes bill nelson the democratic incumbent forty nine point nine percent only fourteen thousand votes separate the two candidates out of over eight million cast in the state i winced now both republicans and democrats are accusing each other of wrongdoing and it's gotten ugly i will not sit idly by while an ethical liberals try to steal this election from the great people
12:33 am
florida the governor's race in florida is also headed for a recount with republican congressman ron decentest at forty nine point six percent of the vote compared to andrew guillen's forty nine point one about a thirty six thousand vote difference we don't just get the opportunity to stop counting votes because we don't like the direction in which the vote tally is heading that is not democratic and that certainly is not the american way and america we count every vote regardless of what the outcome may be broward county is florida's second biggest county home to nearly two million people many provisional ballots were counted late and dozens of rejected ballots mistakenly mixed with knowledge ones for u.s. president donald trump it's personal he campaigned hard for the republicans in florida had them both holding razor thin leads trump insinuated without evidence the democrats are trying to stuff the ballot boxes and all of a sudden they're finding votes i mean after the election they're finding votes
12:34 am
nelson rejected trump's claim votes are not being found they're being counted the confusion has stirred outrage with protesters on both sides gathered outside the offices election officials are meeting to sort through the ballots. this isn't the first time florida has been at the center of an election controversy who can forget the florida recount between george w. bush and al gore and the two thousand presidential race bush ultimately won florida by less than six hundred votes giving him the electoral college victory thus the presidency the florida recount eighteen years ago was ultimately decided here at the supreme court it's unclear if will see a repeat of that what is very certain that the current recount most likely involve a lot of lawyers lawsuits and drag on for a very long time gabriel's on dough al-jazeera washington has john jones with us
12:35 am
now political analyst former us congress and senate official in washington d.c. i'm going to invoke invoke a bit of the late n.b.c. journalist tim russert here and say florida florida florida he always used to say it was that important can we say in two thousand and eighteen why it is still so close there so i like to say divisive and decisive. absolutely look close votes in florida is like sand in the desert it's the norm when you look at florida you have one of the most diverse states in all of the union you have persons who come from the american south the new york region the midwest latin america the caribbean israel asia and you have a number of people who come from all over the united states for low taxes and for the cultural appeal in some ways college students are retirees so what you get there is a very unique situation in so far that you have one of the most ideologically and
12:36 am
culturally diverse states in all of the union very few states have what har what florida has in its diversity but what you also get with that and that appeal is also a very very split electorate so going forward today two years and four years from now you're always going to have very close elections in florida is this a good reminder then that every vote counts you know how people think on sale on my phone won't make a difference when you're only talking thirty thousand dollars between candidates he a good reminder. it's definitely a good reminder that every vote counts but even more important than that this demonstrates that the counting of every vote counts and what does that mean exactly when you look at what's happening in terms of the recount that is just ahead
12:37 am
florida has never had an official state wide recount in its history now it's going to have three in terms of its senate race the gubernatorial race and a little discussed race for agricultural commissioner so when you look at that and then you put that along with the fact that you've had some concerns in terms of management understaffing and lack of funding it demonstrates that florida still has a ways to go when it comes to the counting of every vote john jones thanks for your time today we've got a bit more news to get to but thank you so much for joining us on the news grid. as there is new podcast series is the take the latest edition looks at america's post midterms and how the trumpet ministration navigates divided congress it is called checking trumpet features an all star washington cost of chemically halkett rosen and jordan and patti culhane along with host india's tie up podcasts are in the
12:38 am
more menu at al jazeera dot com of course you can subscribe to play over if you get to put costs. now when someone tells you to stay in your lane it basically means butt out you stay over there let us who apparently know better so deal with things but when the n.r.a. the american national rifle association suggested health professionals should stay in their lane over the issue of gun control very refused here has been looking at the resulting hash tag this is my lane and this caused a lot of outrage online kemal and it all started after the american college of physicians released a report last week about reducing firearm injuries and deaths in america while the n.r.a. then tweeted a statement this week saying they want to toss off this to stay in then when it comes to gun violence research i quote someone should tell self-important anti gun doctors to stay in that lane while the tweet has caused outrage just hours before twelve people were killed in a mass shooting at a california bar the medical community has been using the hash tag this is my lane
12:39 am
and some of sharing photos of blood sure in trauma rooms arguing that it is the way others talked about the moment that they had to share news with a parent or a family member that their loved ones just didn't make it and the stock to shed a picture of a chair that she sat in to tell parents that their child had died another approach that we are not anti gun we are anti bullet holes in our patients. well the n.r.a. has not replied to the responses from the medical community on twitter but instead posted this picture of a billboard supporting gun rights if you are currently in the us we do want to hear from you and find out what you think of these a gun laws do you think more control would help reduce gun violence tweet us is the hash tag aging is great and really interesting one thank you for that one retailer . now we're going to talk about the world's most fortified border in their latest trust building step north and south korean troops have withdrawn from eleven gun
12:40 am
posts on the edges of the d.m.z. the demilitarized zone which divides the countries the move was agreed during recent into korean talks and the truce village of pam and john the two are discussing demolishing all god posts on the d.m.z. almost two hundred of them in total lean in other sign that relations have been improving this see a not to forget that north korea have officially been at war since the nineteen fifties let's hear from robert kelly now professor of political science at south korea's prison national university who told us this is just the start of a very long process. a militarily it's not a particularly big deal right i mean the two koreas have large numbers of forward forces on the digital tries on and so these are only posts they're pretty small but it does sort of make the hair trigger a little bit less delicate and it does mean that there's a little bit less sort of immediate forward observation by the two sides so that's good it's something of a build down but it's mostly symbolic but that's what you would expect them something like this that's really sensitive right that what they would start with small steps first and then work up the d.m.z.
12:41 am
is pretty the developer a zone is pretty heavily militarized you were saying that mines and barbed wire and you know you've got north korean artillery and things like that i mean there's you know got american forces in south korean forces and stuff obvious to the south and so what the current government is looking to do is sort of continue to expand the sort of demilitarized space to sort of you know the mining has been mentioned removing barbed wire the no fly zone over the demilitarized zone has been expanded but a lot of that sort of depends on how these sort of small steps go the big really big thing would be if the two sides could actually start would draw forward based. forces right because the north korean artillery on the south koreans are really worried that if there's a war the north koreans would shell soul which is very close to the d.m.z. so that's really the big one but that's probably a couple years away all right we're looking at the world of sport today with leo if you got football quite a bit of it yeah we have breaking news actually out of argentina the copa libertadores final between river plate and boca juniors bin has been rescheduled after a twenty four hour rain delay fans have been waiting to hear if the show was going
12:42 am
