a week international says more than 140 people were killed in a brutal crackdown. donald trump is planning to designate mexican drug cartels as terror groups in the united states the president called for a war on the cartels after an american family was attacked in mexico earlier this month president trump says the decision has been in the works for the past 3 months mexico's foreign minister has called for an urgent meeting with the u.s. state department officials on the issue alan fischer is in mexico city he says trump's decision has taken many officials from both sides of the border by surprise it appears that donald trump was under pressure from the law banning family that's the american family who deal mexican u.s. citizenship who were driving through a remote part of northern mexico at the beginning of this year when they were ambushed by one of the cartels 6 children 3 adults were killed many members of the le baron family petitioned the white house and said they felt it was time for the
8:20 pm
u.s. to designate the cartels as a terrorist organization donald trump his self has said that it's time to start clearing the cartels out you know there could be quite a distance between donald trump making this a moment when he's speaking to a right wing radio talk show host and something actually happening there are several legal steps but it certainly would kaito towards his position of being hard on mexico or hard on the drug traffickers as well but in mexico the president was asked about it during his daily news conference and he just said look it's the eve of thanksgiving this is about cooperation not confrontation the mexican president has famously refused to go up against donald trump so it doesn't want to upset him at this point but we know that the foreign minister said just a couple of days ago he didn't think the united states would take this step and certainly the mexicans have experience of donald trump saying one thing and then
8:21 pm
then not following through you remember almost a year ago when donald trump said he was going to close the mexican border and nothing happened. opposition labor party leader jeremy corbyn says he has proof that the u.k.'s whole system is for sale in tried talks with the us corp and says a $451.00 page document is evidence prime minister boris johnson discussed offering the us access to the n.h.s. johnson has previously denied that allegation labor has promised to safeguard the n.h.s. if it wins next month's election. the n.h.s. is a hugely emotive issue in this election because it goes to a fundamental. desire to receive people i think to have universal health care and the picture with which the n.h.s. is health is enormous 90 percent believe in the founding principles of the n.h.s. in the recent opinion poll that is the pair should be free at the point of contact
8:22 pm
regardless of the sorry of the ability to. question is how to pay for that cap in an age where costs are going up the price of drugs is going up and the reality is the conservatives have a very different perspective on that from labor despite that boris johnson the prime minister has been absolutely adamant so far in this election campaign that the n.h.s. is not up for sale you'll remember the leaders' debate that took place so we could go through which he said it was an absolute invention when confronted by jeremy corbin and some redacted papers and after an invention that the n.h.s. was even on the table he said that a no circumstances in which the government or any conservative government would put the n.h.s. n.h.s. on the table in any trade negotiations fast forward to today and the labor party has issued this 451 unredacted pages of trade minutes dating back about 2 years and 6 rounds of discussions which labor says proves that
8:23 pm
the n.h.s. does form part of the government's planning if you like. the u.s. has reportedly sent teams to saudi arabia and the u.a.e. to investigate how american made armored vehicles got into the hands of rebel fighters in yemen transfers of any military weaponry would be a violation of the agreement with washington the u.a.e. and saudi arabia deny any wrongdoing and bruce smith is the spokesman for the campaign against arms trade he says this is not the 1st time u.s. made weapons or ended up in the wrong hands and says arms export policies must be overhauled entirely. this hasn't even been specific to the trumpet ministration g.b.'s white house these were democrat or republican of team full of much the same policy in arms exports the u.s. government the kinds one for all arms sales in the world and when they dominate market to that extent if absolutely no way of knowing which atrocities these
8:24 pm
weapons could be used if you will because ultimately when somebody is buying weapons is because they have the intention to use them and short term profits drams companies have been ahead of human rights for part too long we've been where that of democracy and the weapons that are being sold today could be used to fuel atrocities in the beauty's 3 years to come the situation in yemen is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world and one reason why it's been able to get so bad is because of their complicity in support of arms exports and governments some european governments have taken action a little hasn't time to be one to exporting most so it needs action from the major arms it's what governments like the u.s. and the u.k. need to take the lead because if u.s. and u.k. were to end their arms sales to save the regime one in yemen would stop very quickly a new report from amnesty international is accusing egypt of misusing counter-terrorism laws to instead detain peaceful protesters and journalists the rights group says
