We have I confident with respect to who conducted these attacks still Pompeo suggested he has some work to do to convince you. US allies, about Iran's role in the attacks amid a number of calls to my colleagues around the world yesterday, I am confident we will have partners that understand this threat, the UK express cautious support saying it had come to the conclusion, it is almost certain Iran was involved in the attacks.

Dr Sonam Vakili is a senior research, fellow at Chatham house. A London-based think tank.

The US pulled out the. Nuclear deal in pursuing its so called maximum pressure campaign today. Iran said it will start ramping up its nuclear program. I think that Europeans in general, and policymakers are frustrated because they can't seem to work with Washington and coming up with a calibrated response that would protect the Iran nuclear agreement, Joe McLaughlin. Former acting director of the CIA says part of the problem is the Trump administration lacks credibility people have to believe that what we say is true. And the problem for the administration. Is that so much of what it has said is demonstrably false that at this moment when we really need people to believe us, they are lacking in confidence McLaughlin, says there needs to be consistency of leadership and policy in order for the rest of the world, to trust the US, a lot of reports that people like the national security adviser, and the secretary of state or interested in regime change.

BBC news. Hello. I'm PASCAL hotter. Welcome to from our own correspondent here on the BBC World Service. The program that gets behind the headlines to dig deeper into news from around the world in this program. We ask whether Israel's rewrite of some of its basic laws leave some of its citizens less protected. We also look under the bed in Afghanistan to see what monsters lurking there, and it isn't just a story told to frighten children and from conspiracy theories in Kabul to something very fishy. Going on in California in northwest Spain. What's happened the seafood? Our first stop though is South Africa land of hope and beauty that right now. This set by the politics of faction rumor and revenge when the governing African National Congress forced out its leader Jacob Zuma this spring, there seemed to be a national cya of relief perhaps the new president Cyril Ramaphosa would as he promised. Call time on corruption or at least reduce it scale, perhaps the ANC would really turn its attention back to the jobless the low waged the struggling South Africans. He'll have loyally kept the party in office term after term. But then again politics is also theater and some actors don't know when to leave the stage, Andrew Harding notes that the plot has thickened in a cavernous gray room in grey office block expensive lawyers in grey suits, a sifting with no apparent sense of urgency through a pile of Bank statements. Yes, he does sound monumentally. Dull? But this is South Africa, a raucous, adolescent, democracy, and anything that involves politics here is this is pretty much rule. Never dull like diligent, archaeologists those suited lawyers. Witnesses a combing through the wreckage of Jacob Zuma presidency. Zuma was kicked out of office this February and plenty of South Africans breathed a sigh of relief almost immediately. The seventy six year old found himself facing trial for alleged corruption his son to a much broader judicial inquiry also began looking into something known here. The state capture that's the widespread belief that Mr. Moore and his friends didn't just line their own pockets. But to stretch the metaphor sought to steal the whole coat the shop, it was sold in the warehouse the factory, and so on that Zuma was at the head of a plot to turn the South African state into his own private fiefdom allegedly. It's not as far fetched as it sounds. Those legal archaeologists working for something called the Zondo commission. Interstate capture digging out an impressive haul of evidence this week, for instance. South Africa's banks have been called in to describe under oath how Mr. Zuma's allies tried to bullied them into helping out the Gupta's an Indian-born family accused of being part of the looting machine. The Gupta's recently fled the country, but insist innocent he would be understandable. If South Africans now sat back grab some popcorn or biltong strips of dried meat, local, favourite and cheered on the spectacle of the Zuma's under Gupta Zander alleged enablers being meticulously exposed to the harsh glare of Justice. But it's not quite that. Straightforward nothing. Here ever is a few days ago. A group of prominent politicians gathered discreetly, but a luxury beach hotel in Durban, the host was Jacob Zuma and it. It's alleged the group was plotting to get rid of the man who doused did Mr. Zuma as president the man who took his job and promised a war against corruption. President Cyril Ramaphosa. When reports of the meeting surfaced members of the group indignantly denied that they'd been at the hotel tool one even sent a photograph of a gun to a journalist who dead ask her about it. But then a photograph of the event was leaked and those involved suddenly change tack and insisted they met there by accident or had been discussing other trivial matters a plot nonsense. Except that we know it's not nonsense. We know there's a battle raging within the governing. ANC the party itself admits as much. These days. Jacob Zuma describes himself with his disarming chuckle as a pensioner. But he is an unusually active pension, a man who still has powerful allies in the ANC, including people implicated just like him in alleged state capture was a group or faction. They are now highly motivated by which I mean that some of them are in the sort of alleged trouble that could put them in prison to avoid that they need to regain control of the ANC of government and of the institutions that it's alleged Jacob Zuma once captured Zuma has sensibly disguised this plot to take back power as an ideological struggle. A fight for the soul of the ANC soon after his beach holiday, he made a speech in front of university students in which he sketched out his plan a Venezuela style lurch to the far left nationalizing much of the economy and steps to weaken South Africa's constitu. Titian his argument. There is a simple one the majority is always right. The government by which he means the ANC should be above the law. It's an argument worthy of Lenin. And it presupposes that the ANC will always be in power here. And by implication that South Africa should be a one party state. It's radical plans unconstrained by such trifles is the rule of law might it ever. Come to that. I've lived here long enough to be skeptical of the shrill voices, predicting Armageddon. The white farmers warning of another Zimbabwe or a new Somalia, the agitators stoking fears of a race war or the end of democracy. But the stakes are becoming rather high the economy in trouble anger rising. It feels like change is coming here. Maybe for the better. Maybe not. Andrew Harding in South Africa since the summer. Contrive ac- has gripped Israel over its new nation states law. The Bill narrowly passed the Israeli parliament, the Knesset in July. It's promotes Israel's Jewish character and has been hailed by some Israel is who want to more religious nation and by supporters in the USA and Europe, but inside Israel, it's been more divisive. There have been many protests among its critics of the country's nearly two million Arab Israeli citizens who say it exposes their second class status. Here is Tom Bateman much is contested between Arabs and Jews in this land. And one debate that generates a heat all of its own is over who can produce the finest philophical in the town of fool Fula on the road. Running south from Nazareth is Gelani's some online guides will tell you this Jewish. Israeli restaurant has the best falafel in the Middle East claim open to dispute. I expect I find myself here as I set out to gauge reactions one of Israel's most controversial new laws. I stare at an array of hot sources there is a strong smell of crushed chickpea balls thinking deep into fat. They crackle above the sound of the conversation. And there is much of that in Gelani's. This place was named after an Israeli army brigade in which the owner's brother fought and died during the Yom Kippur war of nineteen Seventy-three many soldiers still pass through my lunch. Companion wants to tell me about that. This is the world's only Jewish state says Ilan vaccine, local lawyer turned Merrill candidates Israel is surrounded by Arab nations and needs protecting. He asserts he supports the new nation state law the legislation passed this summer is an emblem for the Israeli right championed by Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister with an eye on elections next year. Trying not to be out flanked by more hard. Line nationalists in his coalition the single page. Laura stacked with symbols of Jewish sovereignty. It's states. The Jews have the unique right to national self-determination in Israel. The what it calls Jewish settlement is a national value that Hebrew is the state's official language statement seen as downgrading Arabic, but water the central complaints from the laws. Many critics I ask that it shreds Israel's founding pledge of equality for all the inhabitants, regardless of their religion or race Ilan vaccine says the Jewish people in Israel must safeguard their land. There has certainly been a struggle. Among the people of a Fula when forty eight hour Disraeli families tried to buy plots of land on the edge of this. Jewish majority town there were protests by Jewish residents Mr. vaccine acted for those who wanted to stop the sales. He claimed the Arab families had illegally coordinated bids. The courts ultimately throughout much of that argument and most of the. Sales. Went ahead. Many such land disputes elsewhere have not always gone the way of Arab citizens. A foolish story seemed to echo a desire in the nation state law to assert Jewish identity. Mister Netanyahu said that those who protested against the legislation wanted to turn Israel into an Israeli Palestinian state. A foolish sits in the Galilee region with deep scars from past conflicts. It is a high Rev drive up the mountain road to the home of guides Zoabi one of the hour of Israel, easy, bought a housing plotting a Fula from her village, we look out onto a dramatic landscape between bitter sips of Cardamom infused coffee. She tells me how generations of our family have lived in works the land in nearby nozzle with her grandfather would recall stories from nineteen forty eight when during the war surrounding Israel's creation more than seven hundred thousand Arab Palestinians fled or were forced from their homes. Those who remained. And their descendants now make up a fifth of Israel's population. Her grandfather lost land in Nazareth in nineteen seventy six when Israel expropriated swathes of land privately owned by ourselves in an event now Mark annually by Arab-Israeli citizens as Land Day. She says when Jewish protests took place against families like hers buying plots in the sense of division felt overwhelming. She worries for children who she fears have harder days to come as long as the right wing controls Israel. She claims it is heading fanaticism. She believes the nation. State law sends a message to people like that they are citizens second to Jews. I wonder whether Mr Netanyahu sees the gains as worth cleaning further into this lands fault lines. He has had to try at political repair job to earn back. The trust of one minority. Members of the Druze religion who loyally serve in the Ghilani brigade and across the Israeli army ending government, the lorries increasingly cited by Israel's critics he counters that.
