immanence to insist a third party website searches would exclusively show google adverts that was later changed to a demand that google ads would simply get premium placement there was no reason for google to include these restrictive clauses in their contracts except to keep rivals out of the markets. and this is why we concluded every tree in two thousand and six and two thousand and sixteen who was behavior was illegal and the e.u. actually trust rules google has issued a statement saying we've always agreed that healthy thriving markets are in everyone's interest we've already made a wide range of changes to our products to address the commission's concerns over the next few months who are making further updates to give more visibility to rivals in europe to twenty seventeen the european commission has fined google three times the penalties so far totaling nine point three billion dollars and there is global concern as well earlier this month news corp australia urged
3:33 am
a government inquiry there to break up what it described as google's unparalleled power but there is no quick fix these things take a long long time and so far the evolution of tech companies behavior happens faster than legislators legislate and that's been the case for at least the last twenty years and i'm sure will be the case for some time the latest one point seven billion dollars fine is barely a dent in the thirty one billion dollar profits of google's parent company alphabet but the cumulative effect is significant and it shows a growing determination to hold big tech companies to account paul brennan al-jazeera london. that is it for me on the team here in london now back to doha and come on a big thank you from the city now a jury in the u.s. has sided with a california man who says monsanto's popular weed killer roundup was a substantial factor in causing his cancer one son to have aggressively defended
3:34 am
its product over against thousands of similar cases with us from kansas city missouri to talk about it is carrie gillen research director of us right to know a nonprofit public health research group carrie i mean this is actually i think it was the second this is the second legal blow against the company because it was a similar case in an eighty million dollars settlement in that one very very hot from on sun to deny this any longer yes it certainly is this decision by the jury yesterday was a real blow to monsanto and to its new owner bear the german company that shares in bear drop this morning more than twelve percent in recognition of this the trial is not over of course this was just the first phase but the jury did go out and was instructed to come back and they came back with the unanimous decision that in fact round of exposure is what caused this man's anon hodgkin lymphoma mostly reading it
3:35 am
from the bloke you've been writing about about i think it was the prosecutor saying roundup has been monsanto's billion dollar baby for decades and they've just been trying to protect the bottom line so there's a whole issue there about what they have known and how long they have known it. right the first phase of this kid this case is unusual because it was bifurcated the federal judge decided not to let this case be tried the way it was the first time in which all the evidence came in together he decided to bifurcate it meaning that he would he put it into two phases the first phase was for causation only evidence scientific evidence that pertain directly to can round up can go life the state based or besides cause not hodgkin lymphoma that was what the jury considered now we move into the second phase and we had opening statements this morning in california and the second phase opens it up to monsanto's conduct conduct what did they know when did they know it and what did they do to try to cover it up to try
3:36 am
to hide the dangers of this and the plaintiff's attorneys they're out for a lot of money they really want punitive damages to try to punish monsanto and bear for what they say is a is a decade long decades long deceit upon the public carry monsanto is a huge company it's got a lot of money it's no stranger to controversy do you think this is something which will really effect to the will a almost be able to pay their way out of trouble no i mean this is definitely this is a body blow to this big company we have eleven thousand cases here in the united states that are pending against monsanto slasher bear and the judge in this trial you know considers it a bellwether if they lose this one again completely and they get another multihulls hundreds of millions of dollars verdict against them you know i think the dominoes are going to start to fall very quickly very interesting carrie give them also the
3:37 am
author of the book what washed the story of a weed killer and the corruption of science really interesting talking to you thank you. carter says a nuclear plant under construction in the united arab emirates poses a serious threat to regional stability on the environment qatar is called on the international atomic energy agency to create a framework for nuclear security in the region the usa denies any safety issues with the but i plant in abu dhabi which is being built by a korean firm all set to come online in the year twenty twenty saudi arabia hired a public relations firm to rebuild its image following the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi riyadh's public investment fund signed a one hundred twenty thousand dollar a month contract with the firm the cia has of course concluded however that crown prince mohammed bin salman ordered the killing of casualty at its consulate in istanbul last year ellen walz senior fellow at the atlantic council and the author of saudi incorporated earlier told us rhea will she believes riyadh believes that
3:38 am
time and money can make people forget things. saudi arabia doesn't seem to want to wait there are they're very keen and pressing forward fairly quickly with investment they've had some some high profile setbacks in that area the. future investment initiative conference in october just after the killing is one that really can be pointed to as having been a particular. point of a bad p.r. there were many many high profile departures from that conference and it really did i think set back the p.i.a.'s investment initiatives it perhaps did slow down or make companies you know more wary of taking saudi money i've definitely heard you know from some places that people in silicon valley are definitely wary of saudi money more so than before or so it may have slowed down some deals that they were
3:39 am
hoping to make on the other hand i've also heard that you know the saudis have money and so there are people who are definitely still willing to you know to to deal with that there were i believe these two deals that were announced shortly after the incident i believe and in november afterwards one had to do with a window tech company called view so that seemed to be evidence that the investments weren't really suffering as a result but then again you know the p.i.f. hasn't made any you know big splashy announcements since then sport coming up on this news hour and the gloves are off in the fight to clinch a spot in the n.h.l. playoffs. and angry.

3:41 am
let's get you caught up in sport with andy thanks so much come all the seattle mariners have won the first game of the new major league baseball season tokyo hosted the match up with the oakland athletics an event dominated by a japanese legend of the game. i want to start shuras is it he was the sense of attention at forty five east the second oldest position player to start an eye game in american league history. and saw it his best to steal the headlines hitting a grand slam home run that helped the mariners secure a nine seven when teams play again. you know it's a great honor for for us to come back here with the chiro and understand what he
3:42 am
means to the mariners franchise and what it means to baseball here in japan but it also means a lot to the fans in our entire group organization wide in seattle so we want to send him out here in front of his home crowd in japan the best way we can and you know just trying to give him every chance to tip his hat because he's certainly deserving of it basketball star james harden has made more n.b.a. history he's become the first by its record a thirty point game against all of the league's twenty nine other teams in a single season the last franchise on hardest hit list with the atlanta hawks he got the record by scoring thirty one points against them helping his houston rockets team win one twenty one so want to fight. has been breaking records all season in february set a mark of thirty two consecutive thirty point games which is the most since the n.b.a. merged with its rival league in one nine hundred seventy six it's also recorded for
3:43 am
fifty point triple doubles which is the most in n.b.a. history he did it with a game winning display against the l.a. lakers in december this season harden averaging just over thirty five points a game that's up they'll have the best regular season scoring average since michael jordan back in the mid one nine hundred eighty s. well earlier we spoke of black sports on line is that despite holden's achievements he's still got a long way to go before he can be considered one of the greatest of all time. james so i mean it's definitely it in b. blair he's a player that's like he said breaking a lot of records i think without question most people would say that he's one of the top five players in the n.b.a. right now as far as you know great is the ouattara you know that's a very you know lofty list with a lot of heavy hitters on it and i don't know james who i mean has the body you work to say put him up in a top two or top eighteen. at big you see the potential for him
3:44 am
getting to that you know level but what you really see where you're talking about top ten players in the n.b.a. specifically is all those players have multiple championships and no matter the stats not big russell westbrook is another example of this no matter what type of legendary stabs record breaking stats but it would not be hard for them to break into the top two. unless they stored away some championships into the final stretch of the n.h.l. regular season with james fighting for a spot in the postseason the gloves coming off in this one in new york as the islanders matt moss in question boston is again a chara the prince had won six straight meetings between its aims heading into the gang kept the dome aside for the islanders boston winning five nothing. women's well footballer of the game on says described how discrimination almost derailed her career before it had begun the present and was one of six recipients of the
3:45 am
olympic women's sport trophy at a ceremony in new york an award for those who have helped encourage female participation in sports. always i thought rigid this and lack of opportunity hurt me many times along the way it hurt when the boys would not let me play it hurt when adult coaches from opposing teams took me out of championships because i was just a girl heard to leave my family at the just fourteen to face its three day bus trip with very little money in my pocket and then to live alone in rio de janeiro to play professional football and a problem most cyclists can relate to cos some title hopefuls of mountain bike use cape epic here in south africa a puncture hitting the chances of last forster who'd been leading the overall standings in the world's toughest mountain bike stage race they're back at the scene did eventually get him going again but they've slipped down so fourth place that race finishing up all sorts of acting. ok to be more sports throughout the
3:46 am
night about is it for me and thank you and. plenty of news coming out of europe today. well. let's go back to london just after the break but for the. eternity. of us military occupation. my prison my freedom my heart beats my life by languages my occupation so the
3:47 am
thought of a little. well can help the. jerusalem a rock and a hard to please coming soon is cold war where on line what tina is taught us is to be able to be concise in expressing exactly what is happening in the moment and what it needs traditional church or if you join us on saturday israel is an apartheid state engaged in the ethnic cleansing of the palestinian people this is a dialogue everyone has a voice and we want to hear from he'll join the colobus conversation. a three year investigation into the pro-gun lobby have been implementing those meetings are going to really. revealed secret so you want to put resiting out
3:48 am
there that we have people our age you know. and connection some don't want to expose sneak in legacy media. mass shooting. documents with night al-jazeera investigations how to sell a massacre on al-jazeera. relatives of victims reacts as un judges sentence the former political leader radovan cottage to life in prison. their own felicity barred you're watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up. the e.u. says it would grant the u.k.
3:49 am
prime minister's request to delay brix it but only if she can get her exit plan through parliament. almost a week since cycling eagle hits rescue workers one thousands of lives remain at risk in mozambique. and the e.u. fines google one point seven billion dollars for blocking rival online advertises its third penalty in just two years. we begin in the hague where one of the most dramatic trials of a genocide committed during the balkans war in the one nine hundred ninety s. has and the former bosnian serb political leader radovan cut a ditch will now spend the rest of his life in jail after being recent by a un court candidates was appealing against his twenty sixteen conviction for genocide for which he was given forty years behind bars but the judges said that.
3:50 am
the sentence for the massacre in one thousand nine hundred five was tonight given the gravity of his crimes thanking the families of the victims all sharper needs to celebrate at the sentencing watching it from the memorial to those who died all the eight thousand muslim men and boys were massacred in the genocide of the bosnian time by the bosnian serb army when you're going to go has more leg. it's not just for the relatives of the victims that it's significant for but also exactly. that underlines the the justice meted out to a rod of iron carriage which for the crimes that he committed when he was the defacto bosnian serb leader and that includes queues to genocide a war crimes crimes against humanity and in fact when the prosecutor when the tribunal stated that he his sentence hadn't been wasn't enough then that really was
3:51 am
a relief to a lot of the relatives who were outside here who wanted for there to be this prosecution they wanted to see that sentence passed down to him for life behind bars as well but it's also in effect a very important case for the international tribunals and it underlines one of the most devastating episodes of the yugoslav wars and that is of the massacre of that ebony in which as you said more than eight thousand muslim men and boys were slaughtered at the hands of the bosnian serb forces this also has a direct implication exactly for how such defacto leaders can also be held to account for their actions during such conflicts of course there have been other conflicts around the world since then and still currently there so this really is an important ruling for the international tribunals say despite the fact that there
3:52 am
has been ever increasing pressure from countries such as the united states and the philippines to try and calm down and really sort of clamp down on the all thora t. of such tribunals. to the banks a crisis now in the european council president says britain can delay the date it leaves the e.u. if the u.k. parliament approves the existing withdrawal agreements next week about deal of course has already been rejected twice by british m.p.'s earlier prime minister to resign may wrote to the e.u. all scheme for the u.k.'s departure to be delayed by three months. prime and the proposal of the thirtieth of june we each know it creates a series of questions of the ego and political. leaders who discuss this tomorrow. given that the whole for a file of
3:53 am
a theme for you. even illusory. teac is increasingly the rule and the justified recall not to give up seeking the very last moment a positive solution. of course without opening up his role agreement i have always wanted us to be able to leave on the twenty ninth of march but i believe as was said as was said during the referendum campaign by those who wanted to leave that it was better to leave with a negotiated deal with the european union yeah that is why i am saying that i think we should look again at being able to leave with a negotiated deal but in order to do that we need time for this parliament to ratify any deal and in order to do that we need an extension until june thirtieth. more from brussels there's a general sense here among the e.u. twenty seven in the european council of frankly amazement that some reason may seem
3:54 am
still to be pursuing a deal is lost twice despite the fact that the your opinion is said to her you will only go on extension if you come up with a different deal and yet in the letter she said i want extension based on the same deal with already had and when she comes to speak to them tomorrow afternoon here in brussels i thought i'm sure the question they're going to ask raise if you lose your votes for the third time next week are you actually prepared to drive the u.k. out of the european union despite the fact there's been voted down twice in the british parliament despite the fact it would crush the british economy and would jeopardize the peace process on the island of ireland is that actually what you're intending to do and do you genuinely have no other plan whatsoever there is so little trust in stories you may hear now because she keeps stonewalling and saying she going to do something and then doing something else that they are not even sure that they'll take what she says it face value but when some reason may isn't in the room and they have private discussions that discussion is going to have to be what
3:55 am
it's reason why does lose the vote next week for the final time and we in the european union don't want no daylight are we actually going to fold and go for a longer extension and is anything going to happen the british parliament that would allow us to do that and so the inaction and the lack of ability by some reason may on the british parliament to come to a decision is creating all sorts of impossible choices now for the twenty seven other members of the european union as well. rescuers in mozambique fear the number of deaths from cycling die will continue to rise with more bodies being found in the flood waters president felipe now you say says more than two hundred people are known to have died since a dime made landfall last thursday he warned that three hundred fifty thousand remain at risk many people have lost all their possessions in the flooding
3:56 am

3:57 am
cyclon struck he was found clinging to a tree almost entirely submerged in water now just sayas navigates the same water that nearly drowned him to rebuild what little is left of his flooded home now my snow broom would be were there is no more reason to go back all of our houses have been destroyed risky workers say they've moved as many people as possible in dando district but there are many more they say the situation was made worse because people refused to leave their homes ahead of the storm this is poor river its banks burst soon after the psycho hit some of the people who've lost their homes have come to this school to find a place to stay they may have found shelter and some water has been delivered but there's very little in the way of. a few hundred people are living at the school several families a crammed into one classroom there you go ashore again i have been here since a cyclon hit by days ago all the roofs were blown away when i looked for help my
3:58 am
neighbor but his house was also destroyed the devastation is worse in rural areas at this point too far away and flooded to be reached by road. we are now at the point on taking people that are there for water up to their heads and and taking them by helicopter a boat to places where they're stranded up to their ankles we're in the lifesaving phase where we're not even at the point where we can do medical assessments because they've been out there for many days drinking stay waters with bodies and animals and so health is going to be our second most important thing relief efforts have been hampered by poor communications phone and power lines no match against the cyclons power the water has to recede for life to return to anything like normality but for now the rain continues from al-jazeera. in new zealand the first funerals have been held for the victims of last week's mosque
