2:00 pm
overwhelmed by the crush of orders that's all of our type. the news continues this is al jazeera. hello there. this is the news hour. live from london, coming up. >> palestinian pros test against israel's security clamp down, as violence continues in the occupied west bank. the u.n. general secretary has been meeting the israeli prime minister we will have the latest from jerusalem. china's president addressing britain's parliament on the first day of his visit. >> less turn liberal leader
2:01 pm
swept in canada ending a decade of conservative rule. >> separated for more than 60 years what happened when families from north and south korea are reunited. >> hi, everybody robin adams here with sport, live from doha. essential for the next president continues as planned. with the latest from an emergency meeting at the governmenting body. a warm welcome. the dip lo t maic campaign is gathering, trying to force an end to the violence in israel, and the occupied west bank. but on tuesday, the anger spilled over once again, protestors threw stones at forces in bethlehem, with similar scenes that's near ramallah. also nearby a palestinian man was shot and killed after
2:02 pm
stabbing a soldier, and in another incident, a palestinian man was shot after a car ramming incident, they were injured in that same attack. well the u.n. secretary general is now in the region, and he is appealing for calm, and he is meeting with both sides. andrew simmons has been monitoring the day's developments and he sent us this update. >> we have seen violence certainly, with those attacks there. right across the occupied west bank, and here a prolonged demonstration which involved one stage four to 500 it's been pretty heavy here, with masses of tear gags being fired into the crowds. and at one stage, molotov cocktails being thrown, one being thrown directly at the media. you can see what happened here, the molotov cocktail was thrown through the air,
2:03 pm
this lone protestor who managed to move around the security forces and of course, it landed on -- right beside our tri-pod. we got out of the way, but the real issue was the amount of battlegrounds being fired by the army. and they were -- well, i lost count, a massive amount. these are basically plastic coated steel bullets and a lot of injuries were caused to protestors. a number of ambulances were in action, taking people to hospital. the situation as i say, which is just near the location in ramallah, where ban ki-moon has been meeting with president of palestine. if mac mood abbas has gone a couple of kilometers off his course, with his motier kade,
2:04 pm
he would have seen it for himself. a very large demonstration there as well. but the violence just goe on and on julie. >> receive deck live for us. we heard that press conference earlier, and imseems to further reinforce, that the sites are still light years apart. >> absolutely, i think it is significant that the u.n. secretary general came here. the u.m. is criticized for not being able to do anything, certainly when it comes to this conflict, but i think the fact that he came, it was a last minute meeting showed a heightened sense of concern, certainly on the ground. extremely tense times. let's have a listen to what both ban ki-moon and the israeli prime minister has to say earlier when they issue
2:05 pm
as joint statement. >> israelis and palestinians stand on the brink of the catastrophe. we need to keep the situation from escalating into a religious conflict with potential regional implications. we must create conditions for negotiations and the occupation, and realize the peoples.ons of all the >> in the face of this terror im, israel is acting as any democracy would to defend it's citizens. we are not, i repeat, we are not using excessive force. the international community warrants to help end the bloodshed and violence, i believe it must affirm israel's commitment to the status quo on the temple mass, it must support the right to self-defense. and it must hold president abbas accountable for his
2:06 pm
dangerous words. >> well, i think the israeli prime minister's words there go to show as you mentioned earlier, the opposite polars we have here when it comes to what you have from the palestinians and the israelis. this is not new. every time we see a surge of violence, it goes to show there's very little common ground. i think what is significant over the next few days will be the u.s. secretary state jon kerry, he is expected to meet the israeli prime minister, either -- tomorrow or on thursday, and then he will be traveling to meet the jordanian and president mac mood apass, what is key is to try and as kerry says clarify the actual status quo, the muslim access to pray at the mosque compound. this is the key that has triggers what has happened here, because palestinians will tell you they have seen
2:07 pm
increased numbers of right wing groups visits the site. they are not allowed to pray, but they are concerned this is the intense. also doesn't. we have had members of the cabinet, israeli cabinet coming out and calling for the construction of a third term, very complicated sensitive issues i think this difficulty is is that the diplomatic efforts are well and good, but how does it translate to the ground and instill some kind of confidence and hope on the people especially the palestinians who will voice oing concerns through this wage of violence. >> stephanie that was going to be my next question, is how to get this to translate on the ground? it is so difficult,er and fez that those who want progress and clang, who can influence them now. >> i think that's the key question, i think that they have lost trust in their own leaders.
2:08 pm
they don't trust israel, that goes without saying but they don't trust their own leaders. if you talk about the generation, this is the accords sign to try and bring peace between two sides they have seen more and more of their land taken away, even the last round of negotiations we had where u.s. secretary kerry was involved settlement expansion, was continuing. so they have lost all faith, and that's what they will tell you when you hear them going out to protestors. they don't listen to anyone, this is something that has come within grass roots so i think it is very difficult, how to instill confident, how to show the palestinian street, the youth, especially, that something is happening that will actually give them hope that the occupation will end, and they will get their state. i think that is the only way, but they have been disappoint sod many times when you look at how people are living under occupation, is it in the occupied west bank, in
2:09 pm
gaza, under a siege, and now occupied west jerusalem. neighbors being quartenned off. they have now imposed laws that extend possible penalties for ten years in jail. now we have had a real count down. there is a spiral of violence, and oppression they will tell you that doesn't instill any confidence. they are the only way to solve it is to get two sides of the table, and just to become a solution to any occupation, how to convince them that is a genuine thing that will happen, very very difficult. >> stephanie decker joining me there live, thank you. >> now syrian observatory
2:10 pm
says 300 people, a third of them civilians have been killed by air strikes in the last three weeks,s and at least 45 people have been killed in strikes on the rebel held region. the coastal province is a regime strong hold, and has been the target of russian air campaigns. care line malone reports. air strikeslize teaks have killed a number in civilian. when fighting began more than three years ago. the ministry says they hit depo by what it calls militants. government forces as well as further north. opposition groups say they had an armor personnel carrier. while the agency says the
2:11 pm
government retook a number of agencies. the violence has forced 35,000 people from the region in the last few days. they they woundn't have had much of a chance if they stayed this is what is left of the area most of the victims are barrel bombs are civilians. aleppo was one the hub. it's been the focus of a three way fight, regime forces for months. there may be a change on the power on the drowned.
2:12 pm
as more are forced to run away from home, carolyn malone. a large proportion of the refugees making their way across central europe. with little sign of them slowing. >> the progress has been hampers by bad weather, and official restrictions but on tuesday, the pressure reached critical mass on the border. from the refugee camp, more thank 2,000 men women and children gave up waiting and came streaming down the hill to the front tee. >> we told them we want to just -- we don't know, we don't want anything. just we want to go to complete our journey.
2:13 pm
soldiers and police, translators used megaphones to apeople for calm. the atmosphere, is anything but calm. the pressure grows so does the impatience, this group behind me has come walking down the street, and in an unofficial way they are not registered and they are just trying to push they way through, clearly it won't succeed, but you can see that the authorities are having difficulty in maintaining order. the breaking point is the arrival of hundreds more to the slow screenian camp already hosting nearly 2.5000 people. until then the camp had been orderly. with donationing providing food and warm clothes. >> these people hurt my heart. i empty my closets. i took over children's stuff, because i have a small child o. and bring them here.
2:14 pm
i brought them here. just to help people. because they are wet. >> slovenia a country of 2 million people, say it cannot cope with the numbers arriving, continue to outstrip the numbers being allowed on ward. in direct response, police have now reinforced their camability, and brought riot vehicles. austrian denies restrictions numbers and police say that processing refugees has quickly as the system allowed. >> because we want them to have aid, and food, and so that they can have -- so that they can sleep somewhere. and there's no limitation about persons that we get from slovenia, but we need to have a correct order. >> correct procedure. >> a correct procedure to get them. so this is the problem. >> the police don't lack compassion, but it seems the system cannot keep one the reality.
2:15 pm
but for this group, the journey is almost over. they are now boarding coaches they will be taking into austria, once they are closer to their preferred destination of germany. al jazeera. on the austrian border. >> there's a lot more to come here, including we will tell you about a new agreement, aimed at reducing the risk that comes from russia and the united states flying over syria at the same time. where tomorrower typhoon continues to dump huge amounts of rain on the island. many sport we have the latest from major league baseball playoffs coming back from the series in kansas city. canada's liberal party has swept to power in general
2:16 pm
elections ending nine years of conservative rule. it's leader 43-year-old is set to follow his father and become prime minister. well, there are live pictures where he is expected to address his supporters shortly. opinion polls have shown that the liberals were on track to win, but not by such a big majority. >> third place in the opinion polls but as the days and weeks went by, the party support climbs steadily. >> canadians from all across this great country, sent a clear message tonight, it's time for a change in this country my friends. a real change. >> the result was a shark
2:17 pm
rebuke for prime minister stephen harper who first came to power in 2006. harper has cut government taxes and emphasized national security. during his final term in office, he will resign as conservative leader in the coming days. canadians have chose an national parliament. well tonight result is certainly not the one we had hoped for, the people are never wrong once the official opposition, they were the biggest loser dropping seats canadian voters it seems wanted change, and they wanted the liberals to lead them there. he reminds us how toll site the government has become. what struck me is when the campaign began we had three parties all-ing around 30%.
2:18 pm
the conservatives didn't budge, the mvp dropped 12 or 13% that was the difference, because the election was built around the mange issue whether people wanted to keep the government or not, you have strategic voting on a massive scale. and will now govern with a strong majority, be uh the same challenges remain, low oil price as weakening economy, and an uncertain international scene. daniel joins me now live, hi there, so a new era started today, that much is clear. what does that promise. as it materialized. well, what we really need to get is the official beginning he will be sworn in a few days as the new prime minister and then they need to get their files out and
2:19 pm
tell us what they are going to do we have heard from the white house, they welcomed the election result. the being a good friend, and relationship and then raised what could be a sticky issue. stop participating in the bombing and emphasize troop training. there's a number of files that are lying on the desk that await his position. >> what are the big challenges you mentioned it. what kind of things are you going to have to grapple with on the to do list. >> the biggest thing is the expectation of voters, there is not something unfamiliar when he came in in 2008, he ran on a ticket of change, he thought washington and found out you have to proceed increment bly. probably true here. the economy around here won't
2:20 pm
turn around overnight. it is low growth, it isn't really wonderful. we could use more jobs he has to find ways to do that. and also on the foreign policy front, he has to get ready for the climate change. come to the table with gas emission production. he has to make that plain, so he has to hit the ground running. there is no time here for a honeymoon period so hackett exactly is this, what is a memorandum of understanding mean. >> well, basically, this spells out the steps that the russian and the u.s. militaries have to take, in order to make certain that
2:21 pm
their aircraft both those flown by pilots and unmanned aerial vehicles or drones don't get into each other's way, and have a collision or cause some sort of incident. but that's about as much detail as we can get. the pentagon spokesperson didn't even want to say who from the u.s. actually signed the memorandum of understanding on the u.s. side, because the russians made a request to try to keep many of these details confidential however, cook did tell reporters that not only are there certain steps that both sides have to take to make certain they don't run into each other over syrian territory, but also that there is a direct military to military communication channel to try to talk through any possible problems. one thing that is not included is whether or not this would effect air space over iraq, one other factor is this does not involve the syrian government. so that's pretty much what we know, but it is a deal which
2:22 pm
the u.s. said it had been wanting since the rushing starting flying and they say that they are satisfied that this is doing to at least make the situation a lot easier to manage. >> rosalyn jordan there, joining me live from washington, d.c., thank you. >> china's president has begun his four day state visit to the united kingdom. britain has rolled out the red carpet, treating him to a presession with the queen through central london, and a royal gun salute. at the start of his four day visit he was given the rare honor of atremendousing both houses of parliament. >> parliamentarians are the
2:23 pm
cream of a society, i bid you well as we chinese often say, to scale higher to see further. i hope you will continue to promote the u.k.'s relation with china, strengthen our friendship and support our cooperation, and i hope we will build an even brighter and promising future. >> a largely ceremony yeah day, before the two sides get down to business. the ministers expect him to endorse more than $45 billion of trade and investment deals as they look for cash for procorrects to nuclear power stations. there will be big announcements i have no doubt, infrastructure, health, finance, quite a wide range of sectors and it's a chance for him and quite abietic of ministers to engang with us at a lot of level. >> but not everyone want as closer relationship with
2:24 pm
china, protesting outside the palace the hue moon rights groups anxious that the u.k. is putting money before morales. >> many the last three years there's been aalarming deterioration, and already poor human rights situation, so we have seen a crack down on human rights activists and government critics early this year, several hundred people were arrested some have now been released but 20 remain in custody. many don't get access to lawyers. so a very worrying crack down, and what happens to those that criticize the government, and then the on going concerns about free expression. >> rounds off the events will be a state banquet, where talk of human rights is unlikely to be a topic, and prince charles a long type friend and supporter of the tibetan spiritual leader won't be attending. >> over the next few days the president will visit chinese owns companies and take a trip to manchester.
2:25 pm
it will make northern britain more competitive. both sides are hoping that these few days could mark the beginning of a golden era in their relationship. joining us now to discuss this further. mark jake whose is a senior fellow of the department of international studies and a visiting professor. i won't even try to pronounce the name, you can tell me in a second, he is also the author of the book when china rules the world. it is fascinating to watch this visit develop. it is a massive shift in foreign policy for britain, why sit necessary. >> i agree it is a massive shift, the biggest shift in my view since 1945, and i think it's based on a recognition of the profound changes in the world as a result of the rise of china. so the world is being reconfigures by the rise of
2:26 pm
china. what does britain do, does it remain locks in the old world. or does it seek to engang with china which by 2030 will probably be twice the size of the american economy. in a situation like that, you have to engang with it. so i think the government has done definitely the right thin. >> so it is pragmatism. >> >> it is following your interests. every country in the world has to pursue it's interests, it can have values and so on, but it's got to be material interest involved in the it, and clearly, i think correctly, the government is identified a new relationship with chine othat, as in britain. >> and credit this move has it's critics. exposing our economy to the investment of another major economy, but it is not a good
2:27 pm
idea that we aren't a match on other things like human rights what do you think about those criticisms. >> well, i understand them, but i don't agree with them. of course the rise of china is something new. we have not seen a huge developing country arrive to become now the biggest economy in the world. by some measures. and it comes from very different history call roots. to traditional leading countries that have all been western. and so we have to learn to live in that world. we can't just occupy the comfort zone of 15%, the west represents 15% of the population. there's 85% coming from the developing world, and the developing world is on the rise, and of course led by china, a fifth of the world's population. >> so brings tape takes this in some ways bold step, but what does it do to britain's
2:28 pm
allies? that we have these consider verible relationships with. >> well, i think -- i don't think it -- it doesn't overturn those relationships. i think that the british move owill be essentially an economic move. you might say then, well, there isn't a chinese war between economic interests and political security measures. what we are talking about a new economic strategy. and you know it is a recognition. this is what is so interesting it is a recognition by the british to actually they have a very specific and distinct interest. which is not the same as the united states. no long tore leading power in the world and hasn't been for a long time. america is the top dock. it is still the world super
2:29 pm
power, and it has interests based on that, but they are not the same as britain's interest. >> what does china get out of the relationship? >> well, i think that the chinese approach is to try and -- you notice the chinese don't have alliances. they don't have military relationships. the chinese approach is to try and get on with all the countries of the world. and so they -- and every continent of the world, they sought to engang. and i think for the chinese what this represents is the britain is saying we can be your best friend in europe, etc., so or best friend in the west, well, you know, the chinese will think if the british are doing that, that will encouraging overs in the west, and particular in europe, to get closer to us, although germany has been ahead of us, over quite a long period. and so for the chinese it is
2:30 pm
another drawing towards china, a recognition of china. of another important country, a country they respect with a great history, and has been tradition nally closest ally. >> fascinating stuff, thank you very much for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> thank you. plenty more to come including why the deportation of a pregnant refugee is threatening to goaf shadow australia's attempts to join the u.n. human rights council. also. >> argentina's economy is struggling and with presidential elections only a few days away, producers have proud their protests to the center of bean necessary air rest, where they are demanding a change in the country's economic policy. >> now arsenal aimed to stop the goal scorer in the champions robin has all the very latest coming up a little later in sport.

2:34 pm
here. >> there have been further outbreaks of violence. palestinians have clashed with forces. the pentagon says the u.s. and russia have agreed on a set of rules on how they can avoided arielle conflict, if their carry out separate air strikes over syria. china's president has addressed the u.k. parliament during a state visit says he wants to strengthen ties between the two countries. let's get more now on our main story, joining froes the israeli city the legal sane tiff for moor knowty rights. a very warm welcome. listening to ban ki-moon, he was appealing to have everybody in the situation to calm down and halt the violence, how can this take place? what kind of things need to happen? is. >> .
2:35 pm
>> well i think one of the foremost things that needs to be addressed is the policies and practices of the israeli security forces. not only in the occupied territories and west bank, but also the police forces inside israel. as we are seeing in the recent weeks much of the violence has been occurring in the occupied territories themselves. this is being characterized by brutal violence, being conducted for palestinian demonstrations in an attempt to quell and push back protestors. we are seeing this with he that will force that the soldiers are using live ammunition, to attack palestinians and this is leading to what is now possibly over two dozen deaths on the palestinian side. we are also seeing this inside israel as well. where police are very quick to use live fire against suspect terrorist, and this
2:36 pm
is a i have key issue, because this is fueling the tension, and indicates how much the state is continuing to choose to use very violent force in order to address these kind of issues and in order to put down demonstrations. >> this is one of the foremost things that needs to be death with. >> and of course, the israelis say they are simply protecting their residents, but i am wornries about the palestinians that rely on troops for protection, what is the trust like there? >> the israeli army is an occupying army. there is neither trust nor reliance, so this is not existing in territories. but for citizens of israel, for example, who are supposed to be treated equally, we are seeing the israeli state is receiving them in the same
2:37 pm
sense as palestinians in the territories. with how as i mentioned before, the police are trying to crack down on demonstrations by palestinian citizens. these are police officers who are supposed to be protecting palestinians but are doing everything they can to quell them. we are seeing this through arrests and violence, of demonstrations. we are seeing think how during interrogations that palestinian citizen minors children under the age of 18, all the basic productions they are supposed to go to them in these situations are being severely violated. so there's very little interest on the part of security forces to take part of citizens and protect them in the same way they would for jewish citizens. we are seeing this with massive deployment of israeli forces along palestinian times. they are stopping and searching cars and especially in jerusalem where you find
2:38 pm
these to be most severe. so for citizens and palestinians in the territory, there is very little sense that there is institute to provide the security. even for those that have citizenship, they feel their rights are being compromised in the interest of making jewish citizens feel safer. >> joining me live, thank you very much for joining us on the program. >> france's far right leader is standing trial for inciting racial hatred, it is over comments she allegedly made five years ago completely muslim street prayers to the nazi occupation. al jazeera eave barker has the story. >> the leader of the front national is rarely out of the national news. for a shrewd politician, familiar with controversy, this isn't just a court case, it is a media spectacle.
2:39 pm
ma do you think of these accusations before you? >> those who brought me in front of the court, for freedom of expression, and for a representative of millions of french people from standing up for the values in the individual, i have not committed any crime. she is charged with inciting occupation the comments made a 5rty rally have enranged antiracist groups. >> when the your upon parliament limited her immunity, four human rights organizations seized the moment to press charges. she cannot compare people who are peacefully praying in the streets to an occupying army which made millions of deaths
2:40 pm
this is not acceptable. >> supporters say the accusations are part of a smear campaign to kit credit her and her party, ahead of regional elections when the front national are can'ted to make some gains but she also has sites on a bigger prize, the presidential election in two years time. she isn't expected to win, but she is expected to steal votes from leading parties. she has been credited of pullerring the party of extremist views. out of the party she founded for antisemitic results but now they accuse of swapping antisemitism. are if found guilty, she can face a year in prison and a $50,000 fine. a final verdict is expected at a latest date, lee barker al jazeera.
