a sanctions regime which has been in place since 2011 and would like to you know despite the fact that they want to uphold the nuclear deal and they want to iran to be able to get away allowed as part of that deal to keep the iranian economy going they can't really turn the total blind eye to this situation that's ongoing when it's pointed out to them happening right under their nose and that's why when the americans it seems gave them the information that this tanker was in their neck of the woods that the british and gibraltarians had to act i mean i can talk a bit more as well about the operation itself i think you've got a photograph i understand it is a heat sensitive photograph all of the tank being intercepted by that boarding party made up of royal gibraltar police and royal marines you can see the bow all busy of the. that wildcats helicopter hovering above the

12:09 am
country doesn't have an asylum system the n h c r says that they're trying to help to get some of those sent to other countries including europe to safer countries now a few of them said that they work you'll notice that there's quite a few empty beds they work illegally they do the odd job here or there to earn a little bit of money and that money helps them buy food and very basic stuff that is not. rioted here at this camp when i spoke to the red cross and they said that there's a lack of funding but also the government at the moment in it is in political turmoil and the economy and unemployment is high and for that reason they said that they haven't actually adopted the draft asylum law that was signed in 2014 so many people here are coming from libya and are still stuck here in denver there's plenty more still to come on the news hour including protests against police brutality in israel we'll bring you any developments from ethiopia and community leaders. and

suing the government or a group of indonesians are doing their bit to combat air pollution in jakarta. and in sports a former player returns to kickstart a year i've been with the premier league team at chelsea. where people across it are it's on the streets once again demanding a civilian led government. hold talks are expected to resume for a 2nd day between the opposition and the military giunta processors are demanding accountability for those killed during a military cracked and last month. well so far the military has agreed to demands from the opposition to release prisoners and restore the internet the go see asians collapsed last month after security forces raided
12:11 am
a sit in killing at least $100.00 people sedans opposition leader madani of us mother on the line the conditions of the talks. any negotiation has to start from the points that we cannot agree on and it is one main point the transitional council it is the point regarding the head of the council because both sides agreed to a civilian majority it was suggested $8.00 to $7.00 and it was then adjusted to $5.00 and $5.00 plus one and that would be 6 civilians and 5 military. we also said that there has to be a deadline to these negotiations we suggest 72 hours the sudanese people and we don't have the space to keep dragging these endless negotiations. silliman baldo is a policy adviser on saddam for the enough project a genocide prevention organization and a former director of the said on democracy 1st stripy joins us now on skype from the jersey thank you so much mr bond for joining us today i just from your point of
12:12 am
view where do you think things stand with these negotiations. or simply it is cautious optimism and we put in the long term of the thought but. taking the word of the streets these people who are sitting i think today if you know what we call mission of mercy where there's not a cancer that's why i keep him on the has to be in it but. what if the only grants investigation into the killing of peaceful protesters when you throughout the months is from somebody. more than 200 people killed under almost a power than in your community separate medical community party and military guards and it's done. well of all of these. especially in our
12:13 am
house only. stipulation about the principle and how i likely do you think that will be is the military and what is the sense of do they have to agree to be censured and to agree to be punished almost in the eyes of of the world's they have any incentive to meet those demands well it is a lot of pressure coming from the. therefore the stocks are not you know by not the last. party talks with the population being really clear message of course no they're not going to accept a government by a warlord an army that has been compromised to unleash a force and therefore it is continuing to protest you serve the purpose today only for those of from high schools right of course or than i thought people in our off work list from other news in our course the. downs that are now what
12:14 am
is the steelers in the states is supposed to go into another 1000000 person march if you live here in the last night the population will mix with ungovernable for the foundation of military council unless it concedes an independent investigation and a full and meaningful response rate of power to see really a move that it appears and good but the leadership of this but this year is several interesting points there i'd like to pick up on the 1st what do you notice a year of saying that this is almost a tripartite negotiation because they also have to take into account the views of the street but i mean with so many people involved how do you nineteen's are the opposition these protesters and those who are negotiating with the military are we starting to see some splintering at all or do you think they can keep this united front. well there even on the. do it the population of the grassroots
12:15 am
movement for modesty justice and peace in sudan and i get really really close. to political leadership that is the expression of these protests that it has opted for a lot of intimidation because of so many people or really not a monster mission difference of appreciation of dark lives of course choose the military council rather than have. the freedom and jane force of the whole of that miss india in the one to the shows to the weakening of the pollution is happening but the unity of the 3 and the one is the cornerstone of what democracy is putting pressure also on the political leadership in this unity under the present thing interest of the parliament was a woman who was his boss or the military council so everyone is very sick but
12:16 am
obviously it will. have to they that are in force over thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us here on al-jazeera. the leaders of the ethiopian community in israel have agreed to end the recent violent protests against police brutality demonstrations began in response to the killing of an 18 year old ethiopian israeli who was shot by an off duty police officer on sunday the officer said he was trying to break up of fights but witnesses said he started the altercation with happy days of protest and violence with police across israel the officer has been arrested it's the parents of the victim solomon tika say they want peaceful protests to continue along with and i want the demonstrations to keep going but not violently until they charge the policeman who shot him a limit of what we believe violence should be solved with violence i only support
12:17 am
there and nonviolence demonstrations because we are all demonstrating to stop the violence while barrett's breath is live for us in just south of tel aviv bernard we've seen there have been calls for a process to continue it may seem a bit calmer but what's the general atmosphere like in israel after these events. well i think we've got an indication of the sort of wrong that's been touched here by what the minister of internal security said this afternoon after visiting the parents of the solomon ticket he said that israel has a racism problem he said it is not just with the police it is inside every person in all of the ministries and is the job of every person to work on the racism inside them and this is really very something that's pretty surprising to hear from minister in the likud party ministry one of the most right wing governments that israel has had now the police investigation into the shooting this is this is
12:18 am
causing major problems for activists in the ethiopian community as well because the officer who shot solomon chica is being investigated by the police the activists here say that's just not going to work because they will try and protect him they're very suspicious of the police investigating themselves they don't believe it will be thorough enough and indeed over the past 5 years 10. israeli citizens of been killed by the police no police office has ever been charged and activists point to those figures to say they want a prosecutor externally looking into this case and bernard there is some people may see some parallels here with the the accusations of violence we often hear about the treatment of palestinians at the hands of israeli authorities but this seems to be an entirely separate but somehow similar. event what does this reveal about the relationships between the ethiopian community in israel and and the rest of the
12:19 am
communities there. well i think a couple of the activists we spoke to over the past few days they've said that they've got there for years and years and years have this problem that they're not sort of israeli or jewish enough to be accepted by the community here and people have got to recognize that they are just as much a part of this country as everybody else i mean there was a government commission 3 years ago into the treatment of jewish ethiopians ethiopians of jewish descent and it put forward is whole raft of recommendations this was after very widespread protests more than 3 years ago now the government says the minister of justice says most of those recommendations have been implemented that's things like having monitors for racism racist behavior inside various government ministries it means making the police monitor themselves more
12:20 am
carefully stronger punishment for police officers who've been found guilty of extreme violence but the problem activists say is while on paper the government says these changes have been introduced in practice they haven't and they are going to be paying lip service to them and that is why you still have this sort of institutionalized racism that people really need to start addressing parents not their life in rishon those young thank you very much indeed. also more still to come on al-jazeera including clinging to life colombian once missiles are struggling to cope with an influx of venezuelans needing medical help. and had a real sense of a call americana showdown with brazil. all the details for us.

time of the year to have cold nights and sunny days it is typical at the moment temperature is barely above the 20 mark for most places and occasionally an onshore breeze brings card and rain for example to durban. the refugee problem is something which is a geopolitical issue that's for governments international institutions to manage on the one hand refugees don't have the right to more freely on the other hand goods can move freely as far and as much as they want if you multinational colonialism this is a very unnatural moment over the democratic process these companies they just want the money europe's forbidden colony episode one on al-jazeera. examining the headlines scientists are telling us that we have just 12 years to
12:23 am
make i'll pass that any changes unflinchingly journalism i am told to leave toward complete. absolutely sharing personal stories with a global audience we simply don't make the sacrifices this is what i want to see explore in abundance of world class programming the world is watching on al-jazeera . says al-jazeera current round of the top stories for you this hour iran has someone in the u.k. as ambassador into iran over what it calls illegal seizure all of its oil tanker prisons royal navy sees the arabian vessel off the coast turn u.k.

12:25 am
thousands of troops will march to the lincoln memorial where the president will address the nation the spin fierce opposition to the events with protesters and politicians accusing truong of politicizing the events well our white house correspondent kimberly orkut joins us now live from washington d.c. kimberly this is the sort of imagery one would normally associate with countries like north korea why is this type of military parades taking place in the u.s. . well there's no question the president trump has been fascinated ever since he visited and saw the best still celebrations in france see you sort of it was then that this idea sort of came to mind one that he's tried to implement one tall ready this time successfully so you know one can speculate that that is his source of inspiration but in terms of the controversy i think that is what is really the lightning rod for most americans this is typically been in
12:26 am
a political holiday and now in a divided america this is yet another opportunity for those that support donald trump to showcase that and those that are part of the resistance movement that has been in place since his inauguration to voice their protest of his presidency so we expect that we will see flag burning that there will be all kinds of counter protests how big these will be is very hard to gauge but at the same time what the fear is is. both groups descend on the national mall here in the united states where this will be taking place that they potentially are on. a collision course on a day that typically was celebrated with barbecues and burgers and those sorts of things so there's that concern there's also the concern that this may violate what's called the hatch act that means that there is a law in the united states you cannot use federal resources for political purposes and in the midst of all of this parading is the centerpiece of
12:27 am
a speech by donald trump and many have some issues with where this will be taking place namely the steps of the lincoln memorial that is the site of the 1963 march on washington where martin luther king delivered his i have a dream speech so it's very symbolic for many americans and. concern that this is some ways been politicized by donald trump who is highly attuned to producing a made for t.v. moment is certainly bristling his critics at the same time the president himself is defending all of this he took to twitter to say this is going to be the show of the lifetime again using some of that reality t.v. language he's so familiar with and he really seems unfazed by the criticism in fact he started his day at his golf course just outside of washington d.c. for a round of golf. we'll have to leave it there for know but thank you very much indeed happy 4th of july. the north korea has accused the u.s.
12:28 am
of being hell bent on hostility towards its being obsessed with sanctions responding to accusations that breached a cap on petroleum imports north korea's mission to the u.n. issued this statement the united states is practically more and more hell bent on hostile acts against the d.p. r. k. it's quite ridiculous for the us to continue its pressure campaign considering sanctions as a panacea for all problems with the markets change of tone from these scenes just days ago. became the 1st sitting u.s. president to cross into north korea he met kim jong il. the demilitarized zone between north and south korea and they agree to resume denuclearization talks. now the indonesian government says being sued for not doing enough to tackle air pollution last year a study ranks jakarta the most polluted city saif east asia a group over $31.00 indonesians is now taking the government to court. reports from

a keen cyclist i use my bike when i go to most places in my lungs have to work hard i'm not sure what the long term impact of very pollution is but i know i cover a lot more when i've been out on my bike the biggest contributor to add pollution is traffic the air quality index or jakarta reached unhealthy levels in 24 out of the last 30 days according to data from head visual a city of jakarta sides requires more than 60 senses to reach the age why there are only fixed here operated by the government i to say they also want authorities to apply more stringent standards when it come. the measuring at politics. h.q. i readings are based on measurements of particulate matter of less than 2.5 micro meters in diameter or pm $2.00 the government has set the backs of a daily level of that scale at 65 micrograms per cubic meter that's 2 and a half times more than the world health organization. is director general of air

12:38 am
day driving this is totally sufficient of course there are distances for example if you drive from here fast approaching where this is not sufficient and therefore we have always had a standard on the car the so-called. which allows you to chose the car in 40 minutes which is a brake you probably would do anyhow i'm such a distance so is that right there or not that's giving me the case let's find a half hour we can drive. as it stands the car is saying we can drive it for more than 300 kilometers before recharging many green camp i say this is not a problem because most daily journeys are only around 20 to 40 kilometers so it's fine for urban driving but out here on the outer band comes the real test will be driving at high speeds. are available right has dropped considerably which means we want to carry on driving much further to find the nearest charger. and that is
12:39 am
another traditional shortcoming that these sorts of cars in germany a glance at this map shows the distribution of charging points right now on the face of it there appear to be very many but some people think society needs to think more creatively to make electric cars feasible such as providing charging points in lamp posts and other existing street furniture. testified about $5.00 to $1.00 if were to this long as cobbett thought and we are convinced that it is a good solution in areas with drivers park their cars for longer periods of time we see from statistics that cars are charged where people park for longer and that's usually at home or at work and so we want to have a way for people to charge their cars close to home. the house and land. back in the e.q. see our 3 hours behind the wheel almost it's time to head back to base the car says it can go another 200 kilometers or so manufacturers say electric power is the

but the u.k. says the ship was carrying on wild seas syria in violation of e.u. sanctions well spain's foreign minister says the operation was carried a tz at the request of the united states i mean that alan moore's korean did a little bit naturally we were aware of this operation police patrol boats were guarding the area but we are studying the circumstances in which it happened it was a demand by the united states to the united kingdom and we're looking at how would a fix our sovereignty because it happened in what we understand a spanish waters well let's talk to paul brennan his say in london for us paul will work itself. well let's talk 1st of all about the jurisdiction impacts i mean we just heard from joseph burrell the spanish acting foreign minister saying that as far as he was concerned it happened in spanish waters the understanding from the u.k. point of view is that it was but 2 miles off the coast of japan which the british
12:51 am
say is in british territorial waters and as far as the chronology of how things went the spanish say it appears that information was provided to the gibraltar in or thora seas by the americans and the gibraltar. busy authorities then contacted london britain asked for a contingent of royal marines who have specialist ship boarding skills to be sent from the u.k. out to gibraltar in order to carry out this operation timed perfectly you might say because the footage that we've seen all of that ship the grace one is literally within i mean it's in the shadow of the rock of gibraltar so if you come up the western coast of africa the contingent of roll marines have been sent out there to rendezvous effectively with that ship just in time before it sailed on out of british jurisdiction and paul does this risk making an already tense situation
