4:02 am
settler. he was then shot and killed by police. now, we have spoken to somebody who lives right next to where the incident took place, and he makes clear he didn't see the event happen, but people who did told him that there was no attack, a knife was found at the scene, but it was more than attack on a man by a settler. once again, she is are confusing issues, confusing points. i must mention too that the man that gave us that explanation, we heard in the last few minutes, had his home invaded by israeli army, cell phone confiscated and computers taken. in the occupied area, jerusalem, the israeli neighbourhood, there we understand a palestinian was walking in the neighbourhood and stopped by a police patrol.
4:03 am
they demanded his identity. he took out a knife, allegedly, attacked the police officer, and he was shot and killed. each of these event has a context, a story. difficult to ascertain the exact sequence, the course of event. >> there has been international condemn nation, with a plea to end the violence, and kristen saloomey following that in new york. let's given. >> the security council got a briefing, who blamed both sides from making reckless statements. he welcomed comments by binyamin netanyahu, that there would be no changes to access to the al-aqsa. but criticized the heavy-handed response of israeli security forces forces. >> there is an international
4:04 am
presence around al-aqsa mosque in order to guarantee that the status quo to be maintained, that that is in the mind of members of the security council, that is in our mind. >> the facts speak for themselves. for decades israel maintained the status quo and will keep on doing so. let me be crystal clear. israel will not agree to any international presence on the temple mount. such a presence would be a change in the status quo. there are many calls to end the violence and provocative acts. now, there seems to be little appetite that the palestinians have been talking about. >> president obama raised his concerns over the situation. >> we condemn in the strongest possible terms, violence directed against innocent
4:05 am
people. and believe that israel has a right to maintain basic law and order and protect its citizens from knife attacks. and violence on the streets. we also believe that it's important for both prime minister binyamin netanyahu, and israeli elected officials, and president mahmoud abbas and others in position of power to try to clampdown a rhetoric that may feed violence. >> mike, despite the usual statements and accusations made by politicians, we know that the scrair says that he's -- secretary of state john kerry says that he's hoping to visit the region, do we know details
4:06 am
about who that is and what he mite do. >> what we understand it that binyamin netanyahu, the israeli prime minister had a trip to germany to meet angela merkel. we understand that he will visit binyamin netanyahu in germany on that trip, and the state department says he's likely to talk to the palestinian leadership in the west bank city of ramallah. once again, clearly here, there is no thought of all the leaders sitting together. talking about a series of bit lateral meetings involving the israeli leader and probably the jordanian king. and to explain the palestinian position on this. they insist that they only control some 13% of the occupied west bank. it's structed to look at what
