1:00 pm
♪ >> and a very warm welcome to this al jazeera news hour. live from london from me david foster. let's take a look at some of the things we'll study in detail for the next 60 minutes. north korea facing tough u.n. sanctions after it's missiles program after an unanimous u.n. security vote. seven men killed in a raid by special forces linked to isil and were preparing attacks. donald trump calls on republicans to back him in what
1:01 pm
is looking like a straight-up contest with hillary clinton. >> i'm felicity barr live in washington, d.c. with special coverage and analysis of what those results. we'll discuss what this means for the race to the white house. >> we'll have all the day's sport including tottenham have a chance to move to the tomorrow of the english premier league. details coming later this hour. >> so the united nations security council has voted unanimously to impose the toughest sanctions yet on north korea. well, this resolution comes after a nuclear test by the country in january and a rocket launch last month, which both were previous u.n. solutions. they were responsed by both the u.s. and by china. >> our collective security
1:02 pm
demands that we stop north korea from continuing along this destructive and destabilizing course. yet, we've got to be honest that while previous multi lateral efforts including the four previous sanctions resolutions adapted by this council has undoubtedly made it more difficult for north korea to advance its weapons, the regime continues to plow ahead as it demonstrated the last two months. that's why the resolution we have just adapted is so much tougher than any prior north korea resolution, and why it goes further an any sanctions regime in two decades. >> james bays, it's not every day that you see the names of the united states and china on the same page when it comes to international diplomacy? >> no, but on this issue certainly the security council these are the two countries that make a difference and can negotiate a resolution. this can go to the highest level at one point.
1:03 pm
there was a communication fought by phone by the president and two countries last week. negotiations by the foreign minister, the chinese foreign minister and secretary of state to agree to the wording on this resolution. almost 20 imagines long, extensive and specific. this resolution, which they hope will have an fact. having said all that the two countries the u.s. and china that came up with wording of this resolution don't agree on everything. they certainly don't agree on the idea that the u.s. is talking about, which is the u.s. deploying a high altitude missile defense system to sout south korea. that was mentioned specifically by the. chinese ambassador. >> sanctions are not an end in themselves. the security council resolution cannot fundamentally resolve the nuclear issue on th on the
1:04 pm
korean peninsula. all parties' concerns should avoid further actions on the ground. such an action harms the strategic security in china and other countries in the region and goes against the goal of maintaining peace, security, and stability in the peninsula. >> so we have this new resolution in place, the resolution and the most extensive one, david. the big questions now are two questions. one, how will these--how will the terms of this resolution be implemented. and secondly, what is north korea going to do in reaction to this. in the past when there has been punishment, it's provoked pyongyang to take further action. >> that's the point. this is now the four preceding haven't worked, or we wouldn't
1:05 pm
be in this situation. what makes them think that this will work this time around. >> they've closed a lot of loopholes that were there in the past. north korea in the past has changed the names of its companies, and changed the names of some of the individuals involved. they're trying to keep up with all that and push to areas that sanctions haven't gone to before. certainly here they are saying that they believe the scope of this new resolution will have an affect. >> good to hear from you, james. >> in the race super tuesday has been and gone. but felicity barr has not. thankfully she's in washington. >> thanks so much, david. yes, americans now know it is donald trump and hillary clinton who are likely to fight it out and become the 45th president.
1:06 pm
it isn't a done deal yet. they have neneither have enough of all the delegates to support that nomination, but the pair do appear to be unstoppable. let's begin with a look at the two horse race for the democratic nomination where clinton is pulling away from bernie sanders. to win the party nomination she needs the total of 2,383 delegates. right now she has 1,034 compared to sanders' 308. there are five candidates in the republican camp. donald trump, of course, with ted cruz, marco rubio, john kasich and retired surgeon ben carson. the republicans need a total of 1,237, so looking at the latest figures touch appears to be unstoppable.
1:07 pm
he has 360, so then moving forward, florida and ohio likely to be decisive races in the coming weeks and campaign something already under way in both of those states. patty culhane has our report on its highs and lows of the race so far. >> as super tuesday turns into a regular wednesday, the people of the voting states woke up that for better or worse they helped to make it more likely that donald trump will be the republican nominee for the president of the united states. >> he tells the truth. i think he just is just on a lot of people's minds. what other people are afraid to say, and it's blatant honesty. i think that's great. >> i'm hopeful that he won't be the president. it's hard to understand that he harnesses a lot of the anger that is going on in this country for how the country is being
1:08 pm
run, but i think there's someone better than him to run the country. >> make america great again. >> in the end trump won seven states. as that momentum continues he'll march towards the nomination leaving the republican bosses little chance. >> he sits close, or there are questions about some of his delegates, some of his supporters, or there has been a tremendous amount of buyer's remorse that he's the nominee by april. then come july it wouldn't be all that surprising to see the republican party try to maneuver things to their favor. >> the party's fear, trump can't beat hillary clinton. >> sir, you seem to be saying that hillary clinton will beat donald trump. >> no, i'm not sayin say seeming to be saying that. i'm saying that like a drum.
1:09 pm
>> hillary clinton is continuing her march towards the democratic nomination. but her rival vermont senator bernie sanders did better than expected winning four states, and he's giving little indication that he's willing to bow out. >> what i have said is that this campaign is not just about electing a president. it is about making a political revolution. >> super tuesday moves the process along but didn't change any of the dynamics you but up next, big states, florida, ohio, the candidates have two weeks to win there in what could be a deciding factor of who gets to run for president of the united states. patty culhane, washington. >> we're live with kimberly halkett in miami in florida. john hedron will join us in columbus in ohio. but first we'll take you to
1:10 pm
texas, houston, and one of the big prizes was where ted cruz managed to beat donald trump. the republican establishment don't want trump, quite honestly, to be in the nominee. what can they do to stop him? >> well, what was seen over the last 12 hours are calls for unity in the republican party. look at where they're coming from. everyone should unite behind him because he was winning not just in places like alabama but also in massachusetts. he believes that he is the candidate that can unite republicans across the country to beat hillary clinton in the presidential election in november. then we have ted cruz who won texas in two other states say those who don't want donald trump as nominee should unite behind him because he has proven that he can beat donald trump. and then we have marco rubio saying everyone who doesn't want donald trump to be nominee should unite behind him because they don't particularly like ted cruz as the alternative.
1:11 pm
and before the fact super tuesday we had five candidates who were going after the nomination and we still have five candidates chasing the nomination although perhaps only four of them have realistic chances and there are three front runners at this stage. all the campaigns will be moving on from super tuesday. ted cruz has moved out of texas, and they'll be looking at the he exit polls. how does it help them to tailor their message. there are a couple of things to point out, first of all, those who believe the candidate shared their values tended to vote for ted cruz. those who want change from thinks distrusted government and republican party, they tend to favor donald trump. then we saw late-breaking votes as people made the decision in the last couple of days where voting more marco rubio. his numbers have gone up as he has taken on donald trump and confronted the debate and call him names and be down and dirty
1:12 pm
and grubbing. but there are questions whether that is a long-term strategy. people may be looking at him saying that is not the person i want representing me going forward and not the person we want as the republican nominee. this is strange times in american politics. they're not sure what to make of donald trump. they're not sure what to make of him over the last few months. you have lindsey graham in a packaged report. former presidential nominee. he really disliked donald trump. really dislikes him and really dislikes ted cruz with a passion. yet in the last few hours he has been saying maybe we need to unite behind ted cruz to stop donald trump. he's trying to pick the lesser of two evils in his mind. this is a strange time in american politics. and what a time to follow it. >> it is strange times in american politics. let's go to kimberly halkett in
1:13 pm
miami. the campaigning in florida has already begun, kimberly? >> it has, and we've got our first indication of that on super tuesday when three of the presidential candidates were in florida, and it under scores how important it is not just on the republican side but the democrat side. we have donald trump, marco rubio and hillary clinton. why are they interested in florida? it's delegate rich, 99 delegates at play and winner take all state that means if you win you get all those delegates. and on the republican side, moriche, 246, a lot of math there, this is by proportion analyst representation, which means bernie sanders and hillary clinton could pick up delegates. but hillary clinton is hoping to pick up the majority. she's already on a wave of momentum, a very successful sweep of the southern states. this is a southern u.s. state as well, and it has very similar
1:14 pm
demographics. she was given the delegates by people of color. hillary clinton hoping that she'll do well in florida. she's 30 points ahead of bernie sanders. she has got the momentum and almost a grip on this nomination. on the republican side, well, i tell you that in the case of marco rubio, this is a must-win for him. he is an u.s. senator from this state. if he doesn't do well here it's inconceivable that he could carry on. right now he's campaigning, a cuban american, he is there are substantial people who are campaigning on his half. >> so florida is curb as is ohio, john hedron is live in columbus for us right now. john, talk us through what we can expect in the state of ohio.
1:15 pm
>> well, felicity. ohio is important because more than any other state history shows you have to win here in order to get to the white house. when it comes to general election, since 1964 ohio has voted every single time for the investment actual president. since 1900 it has missed just twice. those are the elections truly won in 1944. kennedy won in 1960 both very close elections. the reason for that is ohio is really a microcosm of the nation. and it has rural black and white. and then john kasich is the ohio governor. and just as marco rubio has to win in florida, as kimberly just said. well, kasich has to win here or his campaign is probably over. he has not won in other states. he has hopes of winning in mississippi and michigan on the way here. but if he does not win here then he's probably going to have to drop out of the race. he says he has been waiting for
1:16 pm
that home court advantage. he's polling behind donald tru trump. trump came here today in columbus. and mispronounced kasich's name and said he wants to take the buckeye state. if kasich were to lose, his supporters would likely go to rubio. rubio is the closest candidate to him if rubio were to stay in the race and take florida, that is. that would give voters someone to coalesce around donald trump. he has not been winning the majority by and large, he has been winning the minority. but after march 15th what you have are winner take all states like florida and like ohio on the republican side. that makes it easier to start collecting those delegates they need. if someone wants to stop donald trump, march 15th is a good date to do that. they might be able to deny him just enough votes so it goes to a convention without a decision and that means it can be
1:17 pm
brokered, and the party does not like donald trump. >> they do not, indeed. march 15th is a date we're all focusing on. john hedron, thank you very much. i'll be back in a few hours with much more on the race to the white house. let's take you back to london and to david. >> the felicity, thank you very much, indeed. stay with us if you can. on the news hour this is some of what we've got coming up. the e.u. will give $700 million to help refugees trapped within europe. >> i'm rory challands in the moscow museum experiencing just a little bit of what the men who just returned to earth experienced after nearly a year in space. >> and in sport, a gifted man on the pitch. he now has his coaching skills tested as real madrid. we'll get that and all the rest of the support later from farah.
1:18 pm
♪ >> well, at least two civilians and a policemen have died in an attack on an indian consulate in jalalabad east of afghanistan. a suicide-bomber blue himself up to the entrance of the building. four gunmen would run in and enter the compound. >> indian diplomats say it was a pre-planned and organized attack, a suicide-bomber they say blew himself up at the entrance to the consulate before gun men stormed the building. it damaged many of the surrounding buildings, but the attackers didn't get far before being stopped by afghan security forces. >> the security person who provides security for the consulate killed all the attackers and suicide-bombers with the help from the police and other security forces. >> india has long supported afghanistan as it struggled to

1:22 pm
support in jordan for groups like isil existed long before the syrian conflict. the leader of al-qaeda and iraq was from jordan. the armed group attacked hotels in the kingdom in 2005. jordan has closed all but two of its border crossings in syria, and there are now almost 20,000 refugees the government said it needs to make sure that isil fighters respect among them. jordan until now has been relatively stable. but it's a small country with volatile neighbors and pockets of support for isil. hundreds of young jordanians have gone to syria to fight for the armed group. the risk of violence spreading here is one of jordan's biggest fears. al jazeera. amman. >> the syrian kurdish group called the ypg say more than 40 of its fighters have been killed fighting against an isil

1:27 pm
the coast in other places such as dunkirk. this is a short hop when you consider the distances that many of these refugees have made in the last months. but you can see there are no structures allowed here. only tents, and the time is limited even in this place because the decision has been made to try to evacuate this camp, too. a census has been made around 1200, 1500 people who are at this camp. a new camp is being made and you can see some of those volunteers here. this camp is going to be closed. that puts yet more pressure on the refugee who is are here to decide what their future is. many are confused. many are by which will derred. but it's not whether they're trying to get to the u.k. or whether to accept the offer of asylum here in france. >> we'll be talking about this,

1:33 pm
but of course money will help to alleviate the situation of refugees and migrants stuck in greece. but we also need to find ways to relocate those people out of greece into the rest of the european union. >> yes, how is this money going to be used. >> giving money to the refugees there is not enough. >> how will it be used? >> we don't know how it will be allocated. we don't know yet how the money will be allocated, but we have made ourselves an appeal last month for some 235 million u.s. dollars to do activities in greece. so far we've received half of that. but we hope with that announcement more money is forthcoming. this provides for assistance to children.

1:35 pm
migrant crisis? >> well, in the sense that what is happening in is a crisis in the management of this ways. whether the country is greece, germany or another, we take the whole of the european union with the combined population of over 500 million people, 28 countries with some of the developed and richest countries in the world will be able to deal with this situation. compared to a country of $4 million that ha4--a country of 4 million that has to accept the same number of refugees. >> it sounds like your pretty appalled at how the way things have been happening in the response there.
1:36 pm
>> well, there has not been a proper coordinated response. country have been dealing with it in the right way. other countries have been dragging their feet. they have not really participated this crisis affecting a few countries in europe. many countries are not being really affected, and they don't seem to care so much about what is happening, and not showing enough solidarity with countries that are affected. many countries close to the borders are hoping that the problem will go away or someone else will deal with it. they have to have cooperation in europe. they need to address the problem not simply close our borders and hope that someone else will deal with the problem. that is not going to solve it. >> the difficulty, the leaders of those countries put their forces over the border. put up razor wire to prevent workers coming through. they have recognized that this disquiet among their own population at what is happening.
1:37 pm
>> we understand the concerns in you were about the large number of people arriving. we understand the security concerns and all this needs to be addressed. but the reality of refugees needs to be addressed. what is the alternative? where are they going to go. they need to manage it, not try to close our borders and open that people will go somewhere else. we need to find ways to first of all find a political situation in syria. now we're the u.n. is beginning to more effectively reach places in syria that has not been accessible. that is important. we need to provide assistance inside syria. secondly we need to provide assistance to countries that are hosting the vast majority of refugees to try to stabilize the
1:38 pm
refugee populations in this country. thirdly, the rest of the world, north america, the rest of the middle east, asia, need to show solidarity to take some of the refugees we estimate 10% of the refugees that are in neighboring countries at the moment will need resettlement. we would like to see resettlement programs strengthened. we would like to see humanitarian admission programs, student visas, family reunifications outside of countries into europe, north america, and the rest of the world. >> we thank you very much, indeed. talking on behalf of the unhcr. thank you. there isn't always a lot to celebrate if you. to be a migrant. but these in thailand have a rare victory.
1:39 pm
money has been paid to workers for unpaid overtime. >> this there is a sense of change among some workers in thailand's food processing very. emboldened by the decision from their employer to pay compensation to more than a thousand of its workers this group came to see the provincial governor to see why they weren't clued. the governor would not speak to us on camera. he assured that the workers would also be paid after initially being excluded because they're not full-time employees at the tuna processing factories. but they shared the same complaint. they're owed money for overtime. >> we're so upset they paid for the others, but why not us. we work there, too. >> al jazeera highlighted problems at golden prize last year after workers walked off the job in protest. company management would not
1:40 pm
comment about the $1.3 million payout, but it comes at a sensitive time for thailand. in july the united states will release it's latest trafficking in person's report which at the moment these thailand ranked among the world's worst offenders and the european union is still deciding whether to ban all seafood imports because of illegal fishing practices and labor abuses. millions of migrant workers mainly from myanmar are below "bed" in thailand's foot processing sectors. they know there is a long way to go. >> we feel very happy. this is a first for migrant workers in thailand. it sets a standard for others who do not pay their workers. >> workers are becoming more aware of their rights in an industry where they often have them taken away.
1:41 pm

1:42 pm
at the bail hearing took place in court. thousands of people took to the streets of new delhi. once again denouncing the government's decision to prosecute three students for allegedly chanting anti-indian slogans at a campus event. for many it exposed a wider region where freedom of expression is under threat. >> we want to express our opinions. >> haven'ting their frustration many hearsay no matter how loud they shout their voices aren't being heard by those who run the country. this is one of many protests that are taking place over the last few weeks. they boycotted classes to show their anger at the government, but they say the government yet has to reach out to them. >> and some accuse the government being out of touch with its people.

1:44 pm
in these forum they are clear majorities who are in favor of moving ahead quickly with the establishment of the government of national court and the country needs to move ahead now or risk division and collapse. >> it is almost a month now since zimbabwe's declared a state of disaster in country areas hit by terrible drought. still there is no sign of any rain. al jazeera went to a farming region where almost 20,000 cat tall have died since the turn of the year. >> farmers say if it doesn't rain soon some animals won't make it. the drought is believed to be linked to the el niño weather pattern. it has been severe in the south of the country. in some places the cattle are so thin few people want to buy them. desperate farmers are forced to sell their livestock at give away prices. they have found that it's a buyer's market. >> in is no money.
1:45 pm
>> they find an area to feed the areas, but it's not enough. government officials say 20,000 cattle have died since the beginning of this year. rural areas are remote and hard to reed so it's likely the number is much higher. grazing land is disappearing. traditional water sources already have or drying up. a happy cattle is a sign of wealth often eaten at funerals and weddings, they're also used as collateral at banks. some farmers until the last minute even during hard times. >> the risk scenario is that it

1:49 pm
museums like this and media coverage of missions like the one that has just returned to earth are testament of how excitement human space flights still generate and maybe among these children there are future visitors to mars. >> a little more sedate this travel. >> i'm le lee wellings. when the olympics moved on, it did not stop the racing taking place here.
