7:05 am
. it wasn't quite clear, but there was clearly some sort of blood or red liquid. going in many directions. a collective sigh of shock from the audience with rusty's alleged assailant was quickly taken into police custody in the attack to cried by local leaders. we're undeterred and our commitment to make sure that we call it out. we condemn what happen. we condemn all violence, and we want people to feel that freedom to speak and to write truth. salman rushdie was forced into hiding in 1989 after his book. the satanic verses was denounced by the iranian leader, ayatollah ru, holla, khomeini. many considered the book blasphemous. in its portrayal of the prophet mohammed, but even before khomeini's ruling, it had sparked protest and been banned in several countries. a bounty of
7:06 am
$3000000.00 was offered to anyone that would kill the british author. but even as rushed, you was being burned and apogee. he was celebrate in the west and later knighted by great brin, many in the city did not believe that it amounted to an act of blasphemy. nor indeed, did many in this world believe that he deserved to die for it. but those voices of moderation, and indeed those voices a more just ation well crushed. more recently russia could often be seen at public events. the lecture was expected to focus on the role of the united states as a home for free expression and an asylum for writers and other artist and exile. christian silly me al jazeera, new york, or treat a passage from the quincy institute. he says they attack us, motivations are still not clear he would most likely be born on the same year
7:07 am
that the iranian government, essentially, to clear that they are not going to be seeking sell on rushes death. and they're not going to be aiding anyone else to do so, either it's not a for rescinding of the fats. why? because the phosphor belongs to the ayatollah cannot be rescinded by the state, according to iranian practices. but they took this distance thing from it, as part of a pre condition for the iranians and the united kingdom to restore diplomatic relations. and ever since that picture against my rush, the seems to have decreased quite significant, but clearly not enough. there's still been elements inside of the audience that nevertheless are speaking of that, as well as if it is still a fully part of the volume state of policy. we don't know more, we have no indications as to whether this person has issued any tweaks of social
7:08 am
media our yet left something to explain why he did this. i committed this crime, but it does appear unlikely that it is completely disconnected from the picture. the larger picture, which range is not just from the original photo against them by i for the whole many, but also our efforts by other groups later groups seeking his assassination. the former us national security advisor to donald trump, as described on the ledge plot to kill him as tantamount to an act of war. in an exclusive interview with al jazeera john bolton says, the evidence is overwhelming. washington accuses iranian revolutionary god, member, shot on per sofie of being involved in the plan. prosecute to say it was probably no tele ation for the 2020 us trend strike appeal to ron's elite could force leader . awesome. so the money i think be charging documents that the u. s. department of
7:09 am
justice filed last week and were unsealed a few days ago presented an overwhelming case that this is the government of iran targeting a former government official in this case may to, to try and attempt to assassinate. and as the charging document indicates, and as others have said, that this threat extends well beyond me. a former secretary of defense mark as for former secretary of state, mike pompei, when number of other people whose names have not really become public are targets of the iranian government. and i think it's, it's very serious. it's tam out really to an act of war by iran against the united states. at the same time that the, the, the u. s. government is being urged to get back into the 2015 nuclear deal with iran, which i think is a huge mistake. now your sources will conduct exercises in the taiwan straits in the coming weeks. the white house says the exercises will reflect its response to
7:10 am
china's drills in the, in the area. it also says the us will operate were of international law, allows the white house as described, china's drills as provocative beijing regards taiwan as part of its territory. launched the drills after us how speak and nancy pelosi visited taiwan earlier this month were don't live on skype from hong kong is angel young. he's an international and independent china strategist under good to have you back. so how significant is this statement by the us that it will conduct these exercises? presumably, angel, this is about washington saying look, we not backing down of a tie one? well, all these activities, all these acts cannot be seen in isolation. football is one tie, one china policy has consistently been order out by the united states administrations over here, the kids are sending more and more. see the officials to visit by one and also
7:11 am
creating why didn't wider bag space. but i want to pray is almost independent row as the pie one was a separate country, a lucy visit. i lost all the candles back. that's point one. wanted to visit came as of the way up front to president c. all his private calls and warnings to let us know by so this is ok run and amanda lee. yeah. and let me just jump in there because the push for time, i mean in the wake of the nancy pelosi visit that you just mentioned. we saw china stage, huge miniature drills around tie one in terms of the optics. andrew, does beijing want to show that this could be a rehearsal of any future full scale invasion of tie one? well, this is likely in the immediate future because that not get and that's what we get
7:12 am
that is looming. both try to and the united states will be j is the national people's parties, conrad, which is supposed to con presidencies. and then because of the united states, because it's coming up, so any kind of immediate war, it's unlikely, however, because the relationship is to be capital manage in the south china sea because the united states is bought capital. this was well to comb with to inspire our control as i say, andrew, many analysts say that both sides are not likely to have a full scale war of a taiwan. now, at least anyway, i mean, how would this playing out politically for president? she whose long term goal is of course re unification. well actually, because as i say this, the china one sided policy is constantly being pulled about at the top one is people moving and moving more away from the mainland together with
7:13 am
pro independent voltage in taiwan. the reality remains, the taiwanese people do not support implication, but no law to be that the great dependence and they want to. busy the status quo wherever our before, but it's not an option because presidency has quite played 2049 after the deadline for this location, which is it was for the font public sign. it just took the final thought to andrew . how worried our regional allies like japan, south korea, other asian nations. how would they view in different of worsening geo political firestorm as both sides seek to increase their presence and the military posture in the region? i think that those countries in asia do not. busy want to a. busy war or the not a stays north, china for that matter. so i think the countries want to and keep the situation on
7:14 am
even q and plus the fact that app throughout asia, most of the nations of china is the largest trading partner and taught of course, it's at the heart of the regional comprehensive economic partnership, which is the largest trading in the world, i can there was a 3rd in the world population. so all the countries in the region while it. ready not necessarily support china, 100 percent, but they do not want to be forced to choose and they want to maintain relations with china. and really i'm really good to get your thoughts as always. thank you, andrew. thank you. all right, time for a short break here. now to sierra, when they come back cows under quarantine, indian cattle farmers, race to controlled an outbreak of a potentially devastating disease and italian firefighters. rescue a man trapped on a ton. what police say, he may have been planning to rob a bank one status. ah,
