1:01 pm
a dozen tests, so far this year, north korea is accused of firing another ballistic missile. as its forces battle ukraine of russia puts its military might on show the dress rehearsal of well go to it today. parade. and afghanistan's taliban leaders order women to cover their faces in public, some of the groups, toughest rules since the season. and i'm sort of hired with your sports and it's another landmark moment. the rising star of men tennis 19 year old carlos alcaraz beats his idol, raphael, and the dal to reach the madrid monster semi final ah, always stop. this news are in france where a newly reelected present emanuel mac cron has promised to unify the nation after a divisive election campaign. while speaking, after being sworn in for his 2nd to find the time. a con,
1:02 pm
said france was dealing with unprecedented crises including a war in europe. the pandemic and climate change. while he sent his country was at his best despite the difficult times he promised his 2nd term will not be a repeat of his 1st meal of purple fancy said vicky dizzy newfield pleasant. don't hyster french people who choose their representatives and president gra, giving me this mandate to day. the french people have not extended my turn that began 2017. a new france different to the other 5 years ago. have given a new president in human date of remove or france journalist, an unless peer haskin is in paris for us. now, what did you make of his speech then? very much a call for unity. would you say? yes, and i would say it was a humble event that emmanuel mccoy, sometimes known for a grand jose events and, and trying to he's been this quite sometimes as oregon is been trying to portray
1:03 pm
himself as a humble, a new president for a 2nd mandate. who will act to the different crises that you have mentioned, whether insert the war in ukraine, that them, they make the climate change. and also the domestic challenges, social and democratic challenges that is facing and as the recent elections show and on the international front than he made it clear that a strong support for ukraine would continue. yes, this is really he said, though we have to give the means for democracy to win, which means supporting ukraine against russia. but he also mentioned that he was looking forward for a new or alignment of peace in europe and the new security arrangement for europe and autonomy for europe. so these are the, the key words that he's been mentioning since 2017, but which, which take new meanings today in the context of the war and ukraine. and which are
1:04 pm
trying to portray a europe that is not totally aligned on the us, but has it's all in the agenda. and domestically then, what challenges does he face with the coming june parliamentary elections? well, the election, the presidential election showed that france was divided not in 2 blocks, but in 3 blocks. and that's going to be the challenge of the next parliamentary elections in june. because we have the far right with mary le pen who was, is challenger in the 2nd round, but we now have a united left block behind mr. middle show game, 3rd in the presidential election and who is the leader of the radical left. so he will have to face 2 challenges from both right and left. if he wants to get a majority in parliament, which is the key for stability and for governing in this country. so the next 2 months are still going to be very much focused on domestic politics with those
1:05 pm
parliamentary elections at the same time with the european presidency. that fraud still has for another 2 months. so it's it gonna be a busy 2 months for president mccomb. and she mentioned domestic issues that will be the biggest, finished domestic issues coming up for him in the run up to those elections. well, the biggest issue i think is worldwide is the rise of inflation and the discontent of the poorer sections of the population. in the face of rising prices and we, we see that everywhere as a result of the ukraine war of the problems of energy of food. and this is being felt in for us as well. and this is a big challenge for a government that is both trying to support ukraine and be involved in this crisis and at the same time and limit the damage and the consequences of this crisis to
1:06 pm
the french population. but obviously a lot of people are unhappy about rising prices, so that's good, definitely going to be a big, big challenge for the president. ok, french janice, and honest peer, husky. thank you for those insights here today. now north korea has 5. what's believed to be a ballistic missile for the 2nd time this week. japanese and the south korean army leaders sate was launched into the sea of north korea's east coast, south korean military and says in the south flu for 600 kilometers. an altitude of 60 kilometers is the 15th test this year and comes to just days before that migration of the south korean president elect units. so no u. s. these north korea is also preparing for nuclear missile test. but kelly is a professor of political science and diplomacy at p son national university. he thinks it's likely pyongyang wants to send a message to south korea's new president. so you want to becomes president in
1:07 pm
a couple of days, i believe on may 10th. right. and i think the idea is to sort of signal to the south koreans, you know, we're still here. yes. i think a seriously campuses around the north koreans abundance in the past. if i remember correctly when brock obama was inaugurated, there was a test and i think when parking hey was inaugurated present south, there was a test drive train for a long history of sort of doing this and it's kind of a mixed signaling and bullying. now i've been a new testament since 2017. you may recall for a short time, donald trump was president and there was sort of an effort to reach out to the north koreans for 2 years. it looked like there might be some kind of a hot break through in the north korean sort of hell off. but that really didn't go anywhere. the north koreans didn't really 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 station table once or year. i presume the thinking is something like we need to keep on escalating north 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
1:08 pm
a regular testing program. i think the big concern in the last couple weeks has been the north trains have 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 a cramped or something. and al jazeera is rosalind jordan in washington, d. c has more on the u. s. warnings of a 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 the month of may be the 1st time in more than 4 years, that of the of young young government would have carried out what is considered under international law and illegal nuclear ro arms test. this is of course, a situation that very much has on the u. s. and south korea concerned,
1:09 pm
especially because of their just out some 28000 u. s. forces inside of south korea. but there have not been any nuclear weapons stationed on south korean soil since the early ninety's. and that was at the order of the president at the time george h. w bush of the u. s. is also trying, but so far, unsuccessfully to get north korea to return to the bargaining table without pre conditions about efforts to end it's nuclear weapons program. the current leader has yet to respond to those overtures. one thing that is clear of the white house is already said in light of, of these reports that the u. s. president's plans to visit south korea and japan later in the month of may will not be put off just because of this a possible threat.

1:16 pm
and millions of voters and getting ready to choose them. president, protest against the congo these president turns pilot demonstrate to say they won't decide it, the weighted straight it mail it or out there. what's being done to change the image? a professional ah, tell me about leaders in afghanistan of ordered women to cover their entire body while in public. the decree came from the taliban. supreme leader also says if a woman refuses to cover her body from head to toe, her father or male relative can be sent to prison or fired from government jobs. rebound leaders have cracked down on women's rights since taking power last year. as despite promising to expect such freedoms well, kate clark is a co direct 12,
1:17 pm
afghanistan, and with network, a non profit policy research organization. he joins us from london now, thanks to him with his have on the programmer. what do you make of this decree? well it's, it is quite extraordinary many months into the reign of power enough canister on the telephone of imposed probably the most iconic aspect as a rule from the 19 $190.00, which is forcing women to cover their faces in public. and it's clearly aimed at controlling women who have been the most troublesome section of the population. if we see any of the, the demonstrations that have taken place since august, when the taliban took up, its, its been women at the forefront women and girls. and this is intended to ensure that women have no public face. the taliban believes that a woman's places in the home she should not come out without a male close male,
1:18 pm
relative mhm. and she does come out, she should cover her face. so this is women haven't enjoyed much greater freedom. and the 20th of the republic there were women and peas, politicians, heads of agencies, business women, teachers, doctors, you name it. women have been in the public faiths and covering forcing a warrant to cover her face is a very, very symbolic act. that the taliban of now and juice that women have no place in the public room. and what's the reaction likely to be from the international community then in your view? well, i think was a couple of things. one, i mean, i would actually say that the countries that were supporting afghans on the donors, they already had sanctions in place against the taliban. as an opposition group,
1:19 pm
when they came into power, of course, a sanctions that went into power against the country. and they've been a number of ways that have been introduced. the donors were supporting us canister with large quantities of age. the telephone were warned that would be cut if they took pan militarily. they went ahead, it was cocked, the toners of given humanitarian assistance from lots amounts because of the huge economic calamity that we fell off counting on. this makes it so much, much more difficult for the donors to engage with the telephone. i've got us on need help. it economy has been shredded of the result of the telephone take over the toners need to have some sort of sense of the telephone, a willing to, to, to meet them on equal ground in every stage. the taliban seemed to put up mo, barriers of something like forcing me to dress code and extreme dress codes for women. not allowing older girls to go to school,
1:20 pm
killing her opponent, the sort of revenge killings forced disappearances not allowing but virtually anyone outside their ranks to have a position in government. he's fucking throughout myself. i mean, you mentioned that down is that how much international reaction impact ordinary afghans struggling in the severe economic conditions that you mentioned when it just makes it much more difficult, but return to work with the telephone and, and actually it makes, and i mean the one of the other things that i would say is the economy is shreds. is insurance. what the taliban? concentrating on the thinking about the length of the mens beta to think about what women were thinking about the type of sleeves that oldest to girls might where where is the urgency from the, from the government in kabul. and can talk about the very real hunger and difficulties that there are people are facing. and of course, if women come work,
1:21 pm
that's a huge blow to many households where women's incomes were important. along with this edict today came direct you but women should stay at home unless they have a good reason for going out further to the economy. and of course, i think as well, this type of moral policing, hon. my roof is what the, this touch of policing is cold enough, gonna storm the promotion of virtue and the prevention of 5. it's not only about and forcing telephones version of shadow on follow africans. many seem to share the version of islamic law. it's all about social control. it's also an intrusive way in which the government, the state looks into people's personal lives and tried to police them. and certainly in the 1990 s that went along very much with a very strong intelligence outlook. so you, you pose these lows, you create a mechanism from forcing them, it's a way of controlling the population. ok, with
1:22 pm
a bit that came clark, director of us, going to start on this network. thank you for joining us here today. the final day of campaign valleys in the philippines, the head of a presidential election described as the most important in the country's history. one of 2 front runners. none. marcos is holding a large valley. in manila, buck us is the found the fall at present ferdinand. marcus, he was ousted in people's uprising in 1986, and the candidate hoping to beat marcus is vice president, and the reader route is being held at a symbolic location is where a huge march was held in 1983 after the assassination of a senator, who struggled against the marcus regime radio has run a grassroots campaign, the political elite and political dynasties. well, the matter is that the great radi will speak to her shortly. first to florence louis who's covering the marcos campaign events with such
1:23 pm
a tainted family legacy. how has marcus junior managed to gain so much support that he's now the front runner in the upcoming elections? well the more close campaign has been able to take advantage of the fact that more than half the registered voters in the philippines on too young to remember what life was like during his father's rule, this was a period full of corruption and human rights abuses. but he has been able to, or rather his campaign has been able to gloss over that period and re cast that as a golden age for philippines. and he's been able to do that using very slick videos posted on social media. now a fact check, king group has said that macos has mostly benefited from misleading posts on social media, and in contrast, his close, his rival, vice president, lenny robledo has been the biggest victim of a dis information campaign. now, marcus junior has also been able to avoid tough questions by simply limiting which
1:24 pm
media gets access to him? and he does this by pre selecting who attends his press conferences by limiting access for coverage to his campaigns by giving limited interviews. now he's also very cleverly a strategically pad up with sarah detect a who's the daughter of the incumbent president rodrigo do today who is herself running for vice president. and even though these positions are elected separately, this is very strategic because he's able to combine the michael's family popularity in the north with a deter it, a strong hole in the south. but if you speak to macos supporters, they will say that they are voting for him because of his simple message of unity and promising to restore economic prosperity to the country. but although, even though he is rather thin on details of how he is going to accomplish that, that message seems to resonate with his supporters. ok, florence, they're either a thank you for that. the we're going to cross now to,
1:25 pm
to maryland dugan who's not the rally for lay note robbery though. so roberto is the opposition leader with very meager resources and comparison for a campaign. but how has she furred nonetheless a well, just the perfect description would be what we have seen today. i mean, we've been here at the business district of middle clearly as mentioned, a historic one for the philippines since danny and people have not stopped arriving and the local latest estimate as of 5 pm local time. it's now 6 pm here is that there are already around $300000.00 supporters of vice president len. you to read the clearly a show of force on the last day over it can mean. and yes, as mentioned when she ran, she was a reluctant candidate. she was no match against the wow. very sophisticated and well funded resources of her political arrival. bobo marcus junior. but what has changed really is how she was able to mobilize
1:26 pm
a grassroots campaign that is completely decentralized and quite different from the previous campaigns with the coverage we're seeing. this is clearly a movement led by the youth. as you know, there are more than 27. there are more than 27000000 voters now in 2022 compared to 20. 19 during the mid term elections, more than half of the thought. those 6 to 7000000 voters or young filipino. so despite her trailing in local surveys over the last few months, there remains to be a strong sense of hope. here they say, because of this unique electoral landscape brought about by her campaign message, radical love, no weather. this will definitely turn into votes. that would be enough to be bobo market junior, that remains to be seen, but clearly now this has become more than just a regular campaign as menu of servers both year and the broader set read this campaign really has become a people's movement. and thanks for that campaign update from manila
1:27 pm
much more still to come should anc, his president imposes another state of emergency crackdown on anti government antiques act one man race to lead hong kong through its most types bus and sports white newest hamiltons junior has taken the shine of lead up to the miami country. ah hello friday brought him a welcome and much needed rained in 2 parts of norway. you see this band of cloud making its way 3 bergen on the west coast. had $27.00 millimeters of 5, or we could do with the right to southern parts of norwood. we didn't get too much of that. i'm afraid that this is where we have the fire risk given major causes

1:32 pm
and abroad. we've had our human rights activists. we've had the bar association that's a professional body of lawyers that have condemned it. they say that that agree of concerns at the promulgation of emergency to be used at what have been largely peaceful protests. and the president of the vazo, c asian urging the president to revoke the state of emergency and essentially to withdraw that new set of regulations that that's what we have the protests as themselves saying, they're not going to be cowed there are, you know, they've had it with successive governments, you know, trying to scare people to get their own ends achieved. and they said that after this long of having looted the country, having driven the country to its knees economically socially, that they're not going to be have, they're not going to have their voice as silent, they're going to speak up. and they're not going to be afraid by emergency
1:33 pm
regulations that they will face these regulations. so that's where it stands. ok for now, michelle fernandez. thank you. whether hes a closer look at some of the sweeping powers, the presence has obtained under the emergency to creep by which a pack sir can change or suspend laws cease property in order detentions on the military can be called into controlled or dispersed protests. meanwhile, people can be arrested and held for extended periods of time without the involvement of the courts. dinner. she code the seneca is the deputy regional director of south asia research and honesty international. she's in columbus now. so let me ask you, then, what do you believe is behind this new declaration of a state of emergency? thank you. carry the problem with the state of the emergency that has been declared that it cannot be challenged in a court of law. and the result of the sleeping powers under these laws. you know,
1:34 pm
it can inhibit federal human rights issues, including in process when people stood and detained for extended periods of time. and you said the seed can take control of the property and entry. and so i extended for the military properties and we continue extremely concerned given that the protest had been largely peaceful and the response of the state has included existing support. and so the reasoning behind it remained debatable but the government must ensure that the drugs are predicted, the president might say, there's national disorder. he has no choice but to come up with some kind of national solution. the solutions to the problems of raising is not by be glad to be much of the solution,
1:35 pm
