world war 2 support from sun you're going to go. more and they came to grief. but in a pandemic far fewer were able to gather together to remember the dead. once just a regular municipality in eastern bosnia now a town scarred by the very worst of what humanity is capable of and still control normality scorched by the horror of what came to pass here 25 years ago. on saturday the bodies of recently identified remains of 9 victims were laid to rest in the memorial cemetery. dignitaries gabaa to hayworth's from international leaders now and then remembering the lives lost of what was termed ethnic cleansing and acknowledging how the international community allowed this genocide to happen
9:03 pm
a quarter century ago the united nations and international community favor the people of. this former secretary general kofi annan said this failure we all are history for ever confronting the past is a vital step towards rebuilding trust more than 8000 bosnian muslim men and boys were massacred by bosnian serb forces fathers and sons forcibly taken from their families. one of the women and girls subjected to torture and rape while the bosnian responsible for the massacre spending the rest of their lives in prison many still deny what took place mr lederach the government of the bosnian enclave. has repeatedly questioned the number of bosnian muslims killed in . and continues to indoctrinate schoolchildren with his rejections of the $995.00 genocide do we have survived in many experience genocide the only country in the

region which does not have the law which prevents. so we're becoming. really. the extremists can flourish and with their statements in the speech the massacre that happened in $78.00 so was ruled to be the only want to have taken place on european soil since world war 2 the recognition of that vitally important for the survivors and their families. and for the international community for whom the phrase never again has been outed too often and little effect sunni triangle al-jazeera. doing research with al-jazeera balkans and srebrenica here he explains why the remains of some victims may actually never be identified at this
9:05 pm
moment in the identification center there are 1009 and identified victims there are yet to be a date identified although there was a large wide scale in a sample gathering now the experts say that the problem the probable cause why. they are still to be identified is that there's just no next of kin you know there's no close enough relative that could guarantee a d.n.a. match now that tells you that whole families have been wiped out of existence here in eastern bosnia in threatening and that tells you that the massacre of evidence in the end was a genocide and that was confirmed by basically every court that ever touched the case including the highest court in the world the i.c.j. which confirmed that the massacre amounted to the crime of genocide both by the acts of physical violence but also by the intent now imagine surviving all of that the victims find genocide as
9:06 pm
a slap in the face and not just that the genocide watch organization has classified has found that all genocides always happen in phases in stages. there can be 8 or 10 different stages the pending on the methodology but not to go into the details the point is that the last phase of the genocide is genocide denial and that is an indicator that. it could happen again so denying it genocide for the victims is not just a slap in the face and recognizing genocide is not just honoring their suffering but also they consider it they perceive it as a sort of a shield for potential future suffering we got some perspective earlier from a former guantanamo bay detainees he now works with the u.k. based campaign group cage but he spent a lot of time in bosnia before the massacre delivering humanitarian aid and he says
9:07 pm
the kind of hatred that led to srebrenica still persists. we remember 70 today but 70 so was it happen in a vacuum and it was a culmination of multiple approaches atrocities that were taking place that led to the deaths of tens of thousands ethnic cleansing mass rape and rape as a weapon of war that was used to impregnate muslim woman it's so that the so soldiers that you will give birth to the next generation of of of serps the mandate of the united nations was as peacekeepers now the problem is being a peacekeeper is when one side is much more militarily advanced and has much more firepower and is carrying out atrocities and in that sense in that place you don't keep the peace there you stop the aggressor and that's what they didn't do because their mandate didn't allow them to do so i spoke to many soldiers from various united nations forces who told me that they were deeply upset and troubled that
9:08 pm
they couldn't they were sitting there arm and their tanks helicopters and aircraft and armed to the teeth but what's the point of being in that situation when you're not allowed to do do anything about it and though i have been myself attached to the united states american have suffered torture at their hands i will say that united states intervention did actually bring about an end but the end happened after the european forces let it happen and nothing could be more vivid than what the dutch forces did intrapreneur and laing internally displaced people to come into sharp relief only then to abandon forces. and then of course the rest as we know is history. we move on to other news and iran's president says his country just can't afford to go back into lockdown even though there's a sharp rise in new corona virus infections the number of cases has now topped a quarter of a 1000000 there the idealisation a kid tatty be a castle caught we cannot hold toa konami collectivities any longer that there is
9:09 pm
no country in the world capable of doing so the only way to break through this tough time is to observe the social distance. recommendations a lockdown is the easiest measure that can be taken against the virus but the economic repercussions of the lockdown and resulting resentment among the public we have to ban gathering in the same clues weightings funerals and conferences any similar groupings are not necessary we also have to urge oh people to adjust their way of life during this period of time as the number of infected cases has risen over the past weeks. more from now in teheran he reports the government doesn't want to see a repeat of the economic anger that spilled into the streets late last year the economy just can't gild it going into this pandemic inflation is around 41 percent the country has seen an increase in unemployment the country has lost value against the us dollar but also the economy is under u.s. sanctions so what president hollande is essentially saying is that the economy cannot deal with it but also he acknowledged that the government does fear that
9:10 pm
there will be opposition from the public and it was only in november last year that we saw widespread protests against the government fuel price increase but the government are trying that made face masks mandatory in enclosed spaces they've been running campaigns on state t.v. telling people that the crown of ours is no joke but they do face a challenge according to the health ministry adherence to social distancing and some of those regulations started off 80 percent at the start of the pandemic now is down to 10 percent but here at the iran support centers that have close contact sports are not now closed so impulse a close and reception holds that host wedding ceremonies and mourning ceremonies of having told not to host those and that's seen as a key factor in the spread of the virus now president rouhani did go on to say that iran has dealt with the virus better than some european countries something that he said in the past saying that despite all the sanctions iran is still doing well but he encouraged the public to observe social distancing to abide by the rules and to face this challenge together. at least 5 people have been killed your in a sage at

a church in south africa police say gunmen stormed the church on the outskirts of johannesburg over a leadership dispute there have been 3 sections feist's of control following the death of the church leader 40 years ago some of the men i was at the scene and so as hosts as the church is a huge membership it's. over 40 people have been a risk to me and they have been a shooting and then a hostage situation at the church just behind us just south of johannesburg it seems that there was a factional battle of these 3 factions of this church with their members with at least 3000000 members across southern africa so it back till really was about the leadership of the church since the previous leader passed away in about 2016 at the time of his death it seems that he had left behind in a state of at least $26000000.00 so i wonder standing at this point is much
9:12 pm
of the tensions around the leadership of the church is related to income of the church membership of the church and its results of in a hostage situation that so at least 200 people who look on the premises kicked in the church while these factions vassal did out at least 5 people were killed and in fact all of them were killed in a vehicle just outside of the church and it seems that they will burn up burnt to death it's not quite certain given what the police have said so far but their bodies were found in those burnt yoko and we also know one other person who's been killed and all of the people realize that they're also members of the police the national guard or as well as the metropolitan police which really is quite bizarre given agree it didn't all go violent the napoles church during the course of the day. now look at a story out of the philippines now the shutting down of the country's main

venice the largest television network in the philippines that that's been in existence for 50 years if this largely symbolic of our estimation of press freedom in 1972 at the shop at down with 11000 jobs on the line it's really sending a clear message that if you don't knock that with a line in the government then you're going to be next. fax from the administration so it started with a newspaper that used the biggest newspaper also the philippine daily inquirer and then wrap that came next and then the unthinkable shutdown of a busy bin has happened so that you really think the white house about what you're right and what you published but i mean we are we the are a country to space this attack on press freedom before so we're just trying to hold the line and trying to do our jobs as best as possible under circumstances that are a west side and only last friday and yesterday this this happened so there's there's really been a chilling effect because i think there are

9:19 pm
tel aviv. thousands of people and their demonstrators who are angry about not receiving an aid package that was promised by prime minister benjamin netanyahu back in march. more than a 1000 people have been infected over the past 24 hours plenty of people out in tel aviv on the saturday evening protesting obviously not much chance for any social distancing there either live pictures from tel aviv there now thousands of people in eastern russia have protested against the arrest of a regional governor who is accused of ordering several murders. i. alleged crimes happened 15 years ago the 4th circuit for the girl and to politics he was elected governor by a landslide in 2018 candor of a supporter by president person demonstrators chanted and he put in slogans as they demanded his release but we've got with us now
9:20 pm
a lecturer in modern european history at queen's university in belfast a russian political analyst as well thanks for your time alex i think 1st of all we should deal with the allegations accused of ordering several murders 15 years ago. is there anything behind that. well we would we don't know for show but those he came from a very. region which is going to vanish away for his community in the far east and he was involved in the. very you know dangerous type of business selling. metals and so forth so i mean it's not completely both of all but well basically we don't know that special so that's that's 2 to be to be seen but they have the timing of the unstudied soul comes 15 years later and it's only becomes usual when it's convenient for the government politically is certainly points to the fact that even if those crimes were committed it's not the real reason why why they being
9:21 pm
brought up to fail him to face now he's been arrested. for a girl can he be just removed from office by president putin we know president putin's got a lot of power can he do that yes he can he can nothing and i think that's a bit of that plan for the kremlin because that's what they want to wait out of a referendum has been out of the way if they remove him from bottom now that president has the balls to do so they can install somebody else for now the acting governor before the next elections are called in september 20th 21 so that would give the new appointee hopefully from the credit point of use that fission time to establish themselves and we next elections bonds looking at the sentiment on the ground in the fall race that's a very big gamble by the grammarian we've just been looking at some pictures of the protests in a couple of. the fact that people feel confident enough to go out in the streets in
9:22 pm

9:32 pm
serbian forces like the father of most of it she was 14 years old when she was separated from him at the compound guarded by dutch troops the stage but what is really painful to me is that until now they say they did not think we were in danger that's a blunt line and that hurts me maybe even more than the genocide back then. don't create awareness has told her story in a podcast made by 2 young journalists who themselves had no idea of this a brain needs are killings researchers say nearly 60 percent of young people between 16 and 29 have no idea of what happened in somebody needs to change that young bosnian women have started this campaign to ask corporal monument and to give the genocide a more prominent role in that history books a 25 years after the largest massacre since world war 2 so vital say they're still struggling to be heard for the last year after a long legal battle the dutch supreme court found the state partially responsible

for the deaths of hundreds of bus and young men to prime minister margaret and the former members of the dutch battalion has this message i think that the best what they should do is to travel to strip in its act together and be respected the victims only then they will show that they don't look away anymore how powerful would that image be we don't want to continue to put the blame but we want to be seen and heard former dutch soldier elise bed burka bomb was 19 years old during the fall of her brain eater she says a collective visit to the graves of the victims could help members of the battalion to deal with their trauma they have faced accusations of cowardice for their role in the massacre she also urges to un and dutch government to admit that they send the dutch through. still an impossible mission exile so vague as. if i was the prime minister i would be much more open about what happened just admit it a lot would change after this but in the netherlands it is so difficult to self reflect i know other soldiers are still struggling with this but i never had the
9:34 pm
feeling that i could have done more maybe no we sometimes wonder what we could have done but at that time we were totally overwhelmed it was total chaos the. brody events in taipei need to people in the netherlands and in boston for rafa connected only with that shared responsibility we can together prevent that genocide ever happens again on the european continent just like we promised after the 2nd world war a shared history that needs to be remembered together to make the dark chapter of scribbly need more bearable for everyone who suffered step fast and al-jazeera the hague protests are expected to go on through the weekend against the serbian government's handling of the corona virus pandemic the president also accused of becoming increasingly authoritarian. some in the crowds through fireworks at police on friday night here in then

9:36 pm
border because it accounts for 85 percent of aid deliveries but the u.s. says 1300000 people living in northern aleppo depend on the other crossing which is known as. his senior fellow at the harvard kennedy school who says divisions are an extension of bigger divisions over the fate of syria as a whole. it's the latest phase of this war in which regional and external powers like turkey and iran and china and russia and the us are all chocking to maximize their strategic influence and position they've all essentially said that aid can flow to the people who need it but they want to this russians of the chinese want to make sure that they use this process to maximize the reassertion of control in northern syria by the syrian government of bashar less that they're
9:37 pm
afraid that if you have too much international aid flowing that this weakens the syrian government then strengthens the opposition already to border of course to border crossings for aid from jordan and iraq will close earlier this year and they're now down to 2 in the north they may be already renewed for 6 months now a sort of one year so this has to be seen as part of the regional strategic game very complex game which includes kurds and syrians and tribal groups and russians and turks all kinds of people who are physically in northern syria and jockeying for position back to you is round now these pictures from tel aviv of huge protests over new coronavirus restrictions harry forth and joining us he's actually in west jerusalem but keeping across developments there hairiness lot of people coming out to protest. it is an extremely large protest local media reporting some
9:38 pm
10000 people and now in rabin square and the surrounds the roads around there been closed since 5 pm local time and the numbers have been swelling throughout the evening this is a protest against the policies of the current government against benjamin netanyahu handling of the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic and the organizers have said that they are apolitical they haven't invited politicians of any party to come and speak there are people there who are talking to the local media saying that they are coming out because promises have not been met this is particularly to do with the self-employed with small businesses with industries such as hospitality and entertainment and the creative industries where there are potentially the same sorts of safeguards and safety nets as there might be with other more regularized forms of employment and it's also about the fact that there have been self admitted problems with getting some of the economic aid through to such people even during
9:39 pm
the 1st wave and they say not enough appears to be being done now that we're in the grip of the 2nd wave in israel just in the last 24 hours another 1200 cases have been reported 1200 new cases benjamin netanyahu met with some of the groups involved in these protests on friday so that he tried to assuage some of their concerns he announced on thursday a new package of measures including some $1700.00 every 2 months for small businesses. with larger amounts for bigger businesses but you can see by the numbers who are out on the streets of tel aviv on this saturday night they feel more needs to be done and his partner in government former rival now alternate prime minister benny gantz appears to have come out very much indorsing these protests and saying that the government needs to do more than he will argue for more. are these protests violating if i can use that word any
9:40 pm
lockdown restrictions i'm just wondering how strict things are as you say now into a 2nd wave of infections in israel well no there's no national lockdown at the moment 5 cities neighborhoods in 5 cities were announced as restricted zones on thursday night into friday morning but that is only to do with localized hot spots but even in the very height of the lockdown a couple of months ago political protests were still allowed in so that continues to obtain now the police said that they wanted to ensure that people could express their opinions in a proper way there were promises made or at least acknowledgement of the need for social distancing and mosque wearing organizers talking about expectations of that and you had seen extremely almost geometrically arranged protests some months ago during the lockdown against benjamin netanyahu this seems to be
9:41 pm
a bigger protest and less regimented and an expression of what is a very real sense of anger even desperation among people about the way that businesses and jobs have evaporated israel has a unemployment rate of 21 percent and rising it was at 25 percent at the height of the pandemic the 1st word and there are concerns that a lot of these jobs may have gone not to come back unless more is done harry force that is in west jerusalem thank you these pictures though from tel aviv robin square harry tells us where around 10000 people are out protesting the new packages put forward by prime minister benjamin netanyahu overcovered 19 recovery lots of people out saturday night protesting in tennessee. now opponents from outside and indeed within donald trump's republican party are expressing outrage after he commuted the prison sentence handed to

a long time friend and former adviser basically want to the way roger stone who was convicted of lying to congress during the russian investigation republican senator one time presidential candidate mitt romney tweeted this unprecedented historic corruption in american president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury. of lying to shield that very president's let's talk to mike hanna in washington d.c. about this what's been the reaction to that because mitt romney has become one of very few republican or dissenting republican voices. well actually at this stage the only republican voice to have spoken out in strong protest against president trump's decision romney has a long history with president trampy has opposed him on a number of other issues but the rest stop the republican party has stayed silent
9:43 pm
