government protests. and people in heavener, a cleaning up after a powerful explosion as a hotel killed nearly 2 dozen people. ah . but 1st we've got some news from north korea, which is believed to us as far as fight was believe to a b, a ballistic missile for the 2nd time this week, japanese and south korean army does say, atlanta just outside the sea of japan's exclusive economic zone. it's the 15th test this year off to pyongyang, resumed missile launches for the 1st time in 5 years. you s as it believes north korea is also preparing for a nuclear missile test, possibly with in weeks. that's bringing robert kelly. he's a professor of political science and diplomacy at pusan national university joins us from lusan. thanks very much for being with us. what do we know about what north
10:02 am
korea has 5 this time? so in the afternoons routinely fire a mix, a sort of ballistic missiles, right? which one of the ones that we travel all the way to new york america and they're also more sort of short range things. you have to wait to see actually it's actually sort of developing as you speak with the north koreans have a long history searching for testing multiple ranges, right? not only wants of south korean japan, but also one secret 1st pacific ocean europe. it's my guess is from what we've learned is published. rashaw range. thank it's no longer in one's really wrote a major american response to north grand boys should say those things are a big publication. that's probably what is. okay, what, why do you think we're seeing this string of launch is the 15th that we've had in recent month? so why, why we seeing this string now? sure, i think what the north koreans are doing is they're sending a message. the incoming north of south can present more me. so you and becomes present in a couple of days, i believe on may 10th. right. and i think the idea is to sort of signal for the
10:03 am
south koreans, you know, we're still here seriously. campuses around the north koreans abundance in the past . if i remember correctly on brock obama was inaugurated, there was a test and i can park and hey, was not going to present. so there was a test drive train with a long history of sort of doing this. and it's kind of a mix of signaling and bullying. so what do you think of in the us prediction that that could be a nuclear test by north korea within weeks? i mean, this would be quite extraordinary when it's been many years since north korea laugh tested and nuclear weapons. yeah, i actually think that's likely, i think the north koreans north, for example, nuclear testing, since 2017, you may recall for a short time, donald trump, for president. and they were serving effort to reach out to the north koreans for 2 years. it looked like there might be some kind of a top breakthrough in the north korean sort of hell off, but that really didn't go anywhere the north instantly put much on the table to be fair. the americans didn't really either. and so the whole thing kind of came apart, and if you're north korea, you're really not seeing much move and i'm going to go, she ation table. and 3rd year,
10:04 am
i presume the thinking is something like we need to keep on escalating rights trans . can't get a decent deal out of south korean, the united states, and they're going to want to really bulk up on the deterrence. and that means a regular testing program. i think the big concern in the last couple weeks had been the north koreans gotten a lot more aggressive and the rhetoric is talking about using these things outside of defense sorrows. and that's got everybody's scared right. that they may be thinking of using them or something. so they're getting the attention back on them . okay, robert kelly, many thanks. indeed for joining us from jerusalem. while rosalind jordan now has more from washington dc on any potential nuclear test. earlier this week to news organizations here in the u. s. reported that according to military and intelligence officials, they were detecting the apparent ramp up at of activity at the site where underground nuclear testing happens inside north korea. if this does happen during

10:12 am
he was ousted and peoples uprising in 1986 to man alan dougen joins, aside from the city of mcafee. that's where lennie robledo is holding her rally. and jamila greater strong track record is vice president, plenty of grass roots support. but how is her campaign furred well, it starts at quite differently. as you know, she may be the leader of the opposition, but she's also one of the most harassed attacks members of the opposition over the last 6 years, nearly 6 years since president rodrigo did that there was worn into office. now when she ran her campaign, which is 2 and she declared for again to this, you basically said that she does not have enough funds, does not have enough facility infrastructure to run a national campaign. but you know, this is turned out to be quite different in a country where traditionally national candid candidates are on the 3 things,
10:13 am
popularity, money, and family connections. and she didn't have that. but what we're seeing is unprecedented. we're seeing a grassroots sector road campaign. young people, mostly campaigning for our president, are reluctant candidate. in fact, so mean traditionally the surveys are showing that she's trailing behind the sign of the late president and former dictator president for doing marcus bumble market junior. but the reality really is far from the grout. here and mccarthy, which is, you know, we call this the meeting, the r boncey, which is the last round rally before the actual voting day. we're seeing thousands of since, of people really coming in after days and weeks of campaigning for a precedent that they never have done this before. so whether this will actually result, 2 boats remain to be seen, but there is a strong sense of hope they're seeing that basically their campaign, their push for vice president len,
10:14 am
you read that to become the nest for the next president is more than just an act of defiance against a 5 years of president would be good to start this policy, but a push back, they say primarily against the possible return of a marcus presidency. ok to mother and dugan pregnancy view that from mccarthy. thanks very much jamila. let's go over now to manila where florence louis is following the marcus campaign, and far as what is the attraction of mark cost genie a given, the dictates her history of his family. for the marcus campaign movie has been able to take advantage of the fact that more than half of the registered voters in the philippines are too young to have lived through his father's administration. or even to remember what of his like. it was a period wife with corruption and human rights abuses, but his campaign and his supporters have been able to re paint that as a golden era for the philippines. they talked about the infrastructure that he had built glossing over the fact that he got the country into huge foreign debt. now he
10:15 am
has been able to do this in part with misleading posts on social media. a fact checking group says that ferdinand ma cause junior has been able to benefit from has was the biggest benefit of misinformation on social media. whereas in contrast, the vice president, lenny robledo, his closest rival, was the biggest victim in the campaign of this information. now, he has been able to do this also and parts because he has a tactic of avoiding hard questions from the media. he pre selects who gets to attend his conferences. he avoids, he's very selective about who he gives interviews to. you know, just as an anecdote we applied for accreditation to cover the markers junior rally, but we were denied the rally. and the other reason is his partnership with sarah detective, who's the daughter of the incumbent president, she herself, is running for vice president. and even though voters vote for these positions separately, he's been able to leverage on the,
10:16 am
to turn the strong hole in the south and combine that with the mock or strong hole in the north. of course, if you speak to a supporters, they'll say that it is message of unity. even though it's simple and it's ambiguous, resonates with indeed i was going to be a very interesting race. and dave florence, thanks very much. sabrina's the latest from manila. so hes head on out his era, ah, celebrations of what looks like a historic victory for no been on a nationalist policy. that could be problems ahead. the white it straight it male is born out there. and we look at what's being done to change the image of professional ice hockey. ah,
