meets. once just a regular municipality in eastern bosnia now a town scarred by the very worst of what humanity is capable of and still trauma 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 hear words 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 almost a quarter century ago the united nations and international community fav the people of. this former secretary general kofi annan said this failure on toller history for ever confronting their past is a vital step towards rebuilding trust more than 8000 bosnian muslim men and boys
10:03 pm
were massacred by bosnian serb forces fathers and sons forcibly taken from their families. one of those are the women and girls subjected to torture and rape. while the bosnian serb leader is responsible for the massacre of 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 stripping and continues to indoctrinate schoolchildren with its rejections of the 1995 genocide. do we have survived in many experienced genocide we are the only country in the region which does not have the law which prevents general denial. denial full cost so we are becoming. really. country in which the extremists can flourish and with their
10:04 pm
statements in the hate 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 survival of their families and for the international community for who the phrase never again has been outed too often and to little effect. al-jazeera. explains why the remains of some victims may never be identified. at this moment in the identification center there are 1009 and identified victims there are yet to be a date identified old old there was a large. 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
10:05 pm
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 srebrenica and that tells you that the massacre of evidence indeed 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 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 if there can be 8 or 10 different stages the pending on the methodology but not to go into the
10:06 pm
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 on the ring that they're suffering but also they consider it they perceive it as a sort of a shield for potential future suffering. now thousands of people are protesting in the israeli city of tel aviv angry at the government's handling of the economic crisis caused by the corona virus pandemic take a look at the live scene right now where demonstrators are saying the government's aid packages have been delayed and they've been insufficient israel reimposed restrict strict restrictions earlier this week after cases surged across the nation
10:07 pm
and at least 354 people have died so far let's get an update from harry foss and he's joining us from west jerusalem so the crowds appear to be swelling in tel aviv what is it that the protesters are asking for. yes it's an extremely sizable protest a little media reporting estimating around 10000 but there were similar numbers some weeks ago when there were very regularized socially distanced geometrical most protests in that rabin square in central tel aviv and not right now they're absolutely jam packed in there so i think it could well be even bigger as for the issue it's an issue of what they say is not enough government support to the people hit worst by the economic fallout of the pandemic the self-employed small businesses creative industries the hospitality industry the kinds of jobs which perhaps don't have the same kind of regularity and safety net of other forms of employment and they're been looking to the government for more support in the 1st
10:08 pm
wave of the pandemic there were complaints that people that felt they were intitled under the rules to certain levels of aid it just didn't come through and now they say that not enough enough is being done given the fact that we are in the midst of a 2nd wave in israel 1200 new cases reported during the course of the last day on friday benjamin netanyahu sat down with some of the groups being represented in this big protest trying to hear from them saying that he had listened to them and that support would be on the way he had just come from announcing a new round of measures including some $1700.00 every 2 months for small businesses up to a total of $144000.00 in aid for larger businesses saying that people who applied in the past and haven't got their money would do so with no checks that would come through straightaway but as you can see in the midst of this pandemic this 2nd wave people are just cramming into that square to say that not enough is being done and
10:09 pm
in terms of the number is harry of those that have been infected by the coronavirus pandemic what are the latest figures. the total is now up to around $37000.00 since the beginning of the pandemic and active cases are around $18000.00 and that's an all time high of people who currently have the disease benjamin as well as announcing these economic measures also said that he had been mistaken in opening up the economy too early and too quickly once it did start to open up and that he was going to rectify that situation now as for the political response to this protest that's a little bit mixed we've heard from netanyahu use alternative prime minister benny gantz his former rival now in the coalition with him saying that this protest is entirely justified and that he and his blue and white party will argue for a broader package of measures more than just the 3 month's worth that have been announced signaling that he wants a 2 year budget which is
10:10 pm
a sticking point between him and netanyahu meanwhile the finance minister from netanyahu likud party is saying that there's no reason for these protests that the government has not got the economy out of control and the people will find paychecks turning up from the government in their bank accounts on tuesday that is hardly likely to be welcomed given that some of the crowd have been chanting against another could ally of benjamin netanyahu who said that the story is weren't true of people not having enough to eat and the rest of it so another government minister appears to have misjudged the public mood on that front all right terry foster reporting from leicester a slim hairy thank you iran's leader says the country can't afford to go back into lockdown despite a sharp rise in new coronavirus infections the number of cases in iran has now topped a quarter of a 1000000. kid tag t v 8 cast because we cannot hold tell it cannot make it to videos any longer that
10:11 pm
there is no country in the world capable of doing so the only way to break through this tough time is to observe the social distancing recommendations a lockdown is the easiest measure that can be taken against the virus that the economic repercussions of the look down and resulting resentment among the public we have to ban gathering in the same clues weightings few rules and conferences any similar groupings are not necessary we also have to people to adjust their way of life during this period of time as the number of cases has risen of the past weeks . dozens of american marines have been infected with the coronavirus at 2 bases on the japanese island of okinawa this is the us reported almost 70000 new cases in just one day an upturn in the number of deaths has also begun there after falling for months 42 states in the district of columbia which as seen here in orange recorded more new cases last week than the week before while those same grey artists saw numbers level off or fall on 24 states have seen the number of deaths
10:12 pm
rise over the same period there are fears the rise in cases means a spike in deaths will follow most noticeably texas saw a nearly twice as many deaths last week as the 7 days before and disney world in florida as well coming back visitors while it's known as the most magical place on earth many people are worried about the gates opening during a surge in coven 1000 cases in the state's strict new health measures will be in place but that hasn't stopped thousands of workers signing a petition calling for the park to stay shuts or brunell's reports. walt disney world in orlando reopens on saturday with enhanced hygiene temperature checks and mandatory mask wearing to prevent the spread of culvert 19 florida's governor says disney world is safer than a party at home people are going to be it's a safe environment disney i have no doubt it's going to be a safe environment but a quarter of park workers have signed an online petition against reopening saying
10:13 pm

up and running one of the major obstacles that they see is that many of the venue's that were meant to be ballot centers pulled out in the very last minute many of them are shops and offices and they say that their landlords put pressure. or on them saying they don't want their property used for political means organizers say they've had to become creative to circumvent any last minute issues that may crop up for instance 3 district councils in this area of hard this bus to use as a polling station we used to. fight for the everybody can come and take a low remember dream in the past and they can dream for the future now a number of pro-democracy candidates and pro-democracy fringe groups are not taking part in these primary elections they say these elections could undermine the actual elections which will be held in september they fear that this could even lead to their disqualification but advocates of these primaries like legislative

10:25 pm
representatives speaker nancy pelosi warns legislation is needed to ensure that no president can pardon or commute the sentence of an individual who is engaged in a cover up campaigns a shield that president from criminal prosecution so roger stone had been set to go to prison on tuesday for 40 months sentence before the president commuted it he'd been convicted of lying under oath about russian interference in the election with deliver a trump to the white house stone claimed he had been the victim off a witch hunts let's bring in mike hanna he's joining us from washington d.c. as we're saying a lot of criticism to trust this is in from both sides of the political aisle mike . well not so much from one side mitt romney is the only republican who has spoken out against the president's decision the rest of the republicans of either state silent or have actually welcomed the president's move democrats on the other hand absolutely furious you heard from the speaker of the
10:26 pm
house but to a person democrats have repudiated this decision by president trump one must remember that roger stone was convicted of a several federal charges of lying to congress lying struction of justice and at one stage during his trial as well he put up a poster of the judge in his trial with a target next to it the judge was absolutely incensed at that particular level and one must remember too that the original charges the sentences suggested by the prosecutors was a minimum of 7 years that was reduced by the attorney general william barr to the sentence that he received and that sentence william barr said was a righteous prosecution a righteous decision and a proper sentence so the president trumped by issuing this commutation is actually repudiating as well his own attorney general let alone the rest of the justice system and mike on that particular call that nancy pelosi made saying that
10:27 pm
legislation is needed to ensure that no president can pardon or commute the sentence of an individual how much traction has this call gotten. well very little traction in terms of actually amending legislation because that is a case of amending the constitution the president is granted ranging powers in terms of the constitution both with the powers to pardon and with the policy of commutation so certainly that is not going to get much traction down the line but what will get traction is focusing on the destruction this does to the justice system the judge who issued the sentence and the conviction of the prosecutors who took part in the case this is yet another example of how the whole system is undermined and certainly democrats in congress and perhaps some others will be pointing this out showing that articles of where trump has made a number of products in the pasta all of them very controversial well most of them
10:28 pm
very controversial and this has of lasting impact on the justice system and that is something that will continue to linger president trump the office all right mike hanna thank you for that update from washington at least 10000 people have marched in a rare protest and russia's far east demanding the release of their governor. demonstrators in khabarovsk swan survey for gall to be flown back from moscow where he's being held in jail russian investigators say he suspected in the murders of several business men between 20042005 before his political career even began for galvanize the charges and his supporters say he's being punished for a landslide electoral victory over president vladimir putin's party in 2018. they you know if the listeners are dubious. and sick of it how much more can we take we
