hello. i'm geeta guru-murthy with bbc world news. our top stories. russia condemns nato activity on borders as western powers impose sanctions over the situation in ukraine. north korea has drills near the border which remains on high alert. >> what now for the middle east? after decades of talks and continuing conflicts, there's no peace deal. storms across parts of the united states, devastated
6:01 am
communit community. hello. moscow has attacked the european union for its latest sanctions over russian activities in ukraine. deputy foreign minister called the measures absolutely counter productive. they target 15 individuals. among them is the russian deputy prime minister. he's responsible for overseeing the annexation of crimea. also the office of eu says they're active in eastern ukraine and chief of staff for
6:02 am
russia's mass. all will have assets frozen and subject to a travel ban. all this comes amid for violence in the country. bbc hasn't been able to authenticate this but it shows a pro ukrainian rally of 1,000 people under attack. there have been continued take overs in buildings by armed men. the bbc is told europe is prepared to go further with sanctions if russians continue to show disregard for what they call international obligations. duncan is in brussels and told me the other names on the @3 c1 >> well this is the are list here with 15 names on it. it's certainly not as wide a list as announced by the u.s.
6:03 am
yesterday that sanctioned 17 russian companies. but amongst the individuals on this list, you've named some of them. broadly it's split between people linked to crimea annexed and those linked on the ground in ukraine. the head of the people's donetsk republic. he's led pro russian act vis in the seize of local administration buildings in donetsk. he is named on this list. if he has assets in the eu, they will be frozen. he'll also have a visa ban. also the staff member of the intelligence unit in the russian armed forces. he was said to be involved on the ground in the city of sloviansk, the most rebellious
6:04 am
city. they believe there are people linked to russia in events on the ground in ukraine. western officials have accused russia of orchestrating events in the east of ukraine which is something of course russia has repeatedly denied saying it is a local uprising against the new leaders in kiev who they few as illegitimate. >> duncan, obviously these measures are not as tough as the americans for obvious reasons. we've seen that in last sanctions too. will they make a difference to asset freezes and travel bans on these people that actually hit them? >> it's difficult to know if the people involved on this sanctions list if they really do have assets in the eu or indeed if they want to really travel within the eu. but the european union would argue it's a clear signal to
6:05 am
russia once again it's opposed to actions in the east of ukraine. it doesn't speak to business men or companies like the list announced with by the u.s. yesterday. i think that's clearly because the eu has a lot more financially at stake in russia, a lot more trade with russia. fears, the possibility of counter sanctions. up until now, you know, eu sanctions and u.s. sanctions combined. they don't appear to have influenced events on the ground. certainly that's what's hoped by this latest announcement. well david stern is in kiev. we heard duncan craw ford with that analysis. has there been reaction there to list of 15 names released by the eu? do you think it goes far enough? >> it's difficult to say if it goes far enough. in general the reaction of
6:06 am
officials is positive to any move against russia, any form of sanctions. they see this as a form of support from the west. they welcome any sign of support from the eastern leaders and capitals. as duncan was saying, it's difficult to say what effects this will have on the ground given it hasn't stopped situations for example the annexation of crimea. russia is orchestrating the events in eastern ukraine and obviously if that's true, it hasn't stopped that yet. there's the question of maybe it is taking a bite out of russians and they're not saying it. we have heard sharp words coming from moscow today accusing of cold war tactics of the european union being under the u.s. thumb. some point to this and say this is a sign it's had effect in
6:07 am
some point. >> is this to say they're getting more political support from the u.s. than the eu? is there a disappointment with the response from the eu specifically? >> well they don't say that in public obviously. when we have spoken to ukrainian officials they say they are happy with the support they're getting from the eu and united states. however, there are observers here who are critical or disappointed the eu has not been as forceful as the united states. also recognizing the united states is one country where eu is a many nation organization. that needs to reach unanimous decisions. i think there is, depending on who you talk to, a sense of recognizing reality. they would like to see any sanctions and see more forceful sanctions given some things this has not had an effect on the
6:08 am
ground as duncan said. >> david stern in kiev. thanks for joining us. now, other news. north korea has completed its second live fire military exercise in less than a month. the drill took place near the island west of the korean peninsula. it lasted a few minutes and unlike the similar drill, no shells lasted in south korean waters. i spoke to john in the south korean capital for the latest on these exercises. >> these latest drills appear to be more limited and shortener duration than the ones we saw a month ago. the government said they two minutes at 3:00 local time. 50 shells were fired, all landing in territorial waters.
6:09 am
last time the shell crossed the line and south korea responded. there's been no reason for response this time. the military remains on high alert. >> what does north korea say about why it's carrying out the drills? >> no specific statements out of north korea about the particular drills other than the warning they were to take place. of course north korea will claim, and if it does transpire if there is more firing, that all shells have fallen within its own territory. it will claim these are simply legitimate military drills and testing of conventional weaponry and nothing for south korea or wider world to be concerned and. with north korea, it is the con
6:10 am

6:18 am
talks with palestinians. the group, peace now, says the current government has broken previous construction records. the deadline set by the united states expired a few hours ago. neither side committed to further talks. with me the director of regency university. thanks for coming in. we've heard about this a par tide comment made by secretary of state john kerry saying, worrying about this deadline coming and going today. will israel be left as an a par tide state. that affects many globally doesn't it? >> should have chosen better words for this. if the situation continues, they find themselves actually holding
6:19 am
the life of the population which is bigger than the one. whatever the name is chose to call. i think should less different terms. reality is how to to bring this to an end. if it doesn't recognize quickly, it find itself isolated. >> if this is the end of the two state solution, a, what is it? b, what alternatives are there is this. >> i'm not sure it is but we're getting close. what's left for united states is now seeing no progress has been made in nine months. maybe publish its own peace agreements. say this is what's on the table. after months of negotiations maybe united states together with the united nations
6:20 am
community, that's the best both sides can get. take it or leave it or negotiate on the basis of it and advantage salvage the two. if not, ask for recognition of the state. there's a possibility the situation now continues longer. >> but recognition the u.n. for example more recognition as a separate state. that would be blocked. what about the israeli settler activity that continues? why is that continuing? >> the country that blocks now is the united states. the rest of the international community agrees with that. if united states reaching the conclusion that it's to blame for impasse now, maybe they should change their mind. as for settlements, symbolically, this is one of the
6:21 am
biggest obstacles for peace. symbolically, when you see palestinians see the continued expansion of settlement, you send the message this is not about peace. this needs to stop quickly. >> many thanks for joining us. >> pleasure. >> thank you. reports from nigeria say 200 girls abducted by the boarding school may have been sold into marriage. it's exactly two weeks since the girls were taken in the nighttime raid on their school. it's thought the raid was staged by the group boko haram. i spoke to our correspondent for the latest. >> it's been difficult to find out what's going on especially from the government which hasn't given much away. sources are telling us several
6:22 am
things. girls are not kept in one particular place, one camp. they're being moved around. sources tell us they've been spotted being move add cross the lake a lake. we have reports unconfirmed from the area they're taken from, girls have been sold off for as little as $15 each. that's what we're hearing from that part of the country. >> what do we know about what the government has been trying to do if anything to help the families and help the girls? >> initially we were told many had been rescued. that turned out there appeared to be a disconnect between different government agencies dealing with the issue. what they toild us as well they had the camp surrounded where they were being held. the uk and united states have
6:23 am
been providing some sort of support in terms of surveillance trying to monitor the region and find out where they were held initially. one of the world's most famous team is to be unveiled near the site of the original in egypt. will tourists be happy with a co copy? we are finding out. >> this contains some of the most famous and visited ancient burial chambers in the world. the most celebrated is the boy king discovered by a team led by the british archaeologist in 1922. for more than 3,000 year this is tomb survived in almost pristine condition. in nine decades of tourism with up to 1,000 visitors trooping in
6:24 am
everyday, it deteriorated drama dramatically. the reason is human breath. >> pollutants that come in with people have effect on the two. >> previous attempts of restoration have added to the problem. it was agreed a replica would be created with public access limited to the original. with 3d printing we used to make it. the backdrop has been the crisis in egypt over the years. tourism has collapsed. the town center is desserted. local traders are desperate. >> as you see yourself, temple is empty. market is empty. most the place empty. every part is empty.
6:25 am
in tourism, we need more than anything else. >> replacing the star attraction, the tomb, may well be seen as commercial suicide for a town already on its knees. an initial reaction was skeptical. >> negative for tourism because i'm sure every country has replicas for tombs. tourists don't need to come anywhere to see the tomb. >> the public will be given a chance to see the original and new one judged for themselves. >> we took someone down too. >> i'm sorry. i have to say it's my breath. this is just the start of a roadw

. i'm geeta guru-murthy with bbc world news. our top stories. eu targets president putin's government has it imposes sanctions on prominent russians over ukraine. reports from nigeria say the 200 girls taken may have been sold into marriage. which famous name is facing embarrassing headlines for not paying electricity bills?
6:31 am
hello. welcome. moscow has attacked the european union for its latest sanctions over russian activities in ukraine. deputy foreign minister calls the measures absolutely counter productive. one of his colleagues says the u.s. is going back to iron curtain policies. sanctions themselves target 15 individuals. among them is the russian deputy prime minister. he's responsible for overseeing the annexation of crimea. also eagle on the list, director of russia's successor to the secret service gru who's offices the eu says are active in eastern ukraine. and the general who is chief of staff of russia's armed forces. the eu blames him for failing to
6:32 am
deescalate the crisis and deploying massive russian forces as they put it on ukraine's border. all will have assets frozen and be subject to a travel ban. it comes amid more violence in the country. this is the eastern city of donetsk which shows a pro ukrainian rally of around 1,000 people apparently under attack. there have been take overs in various towns by masked and armed men. we are in the eastern city. >> reporter: protests last night was a demonstration, detete display of support in this eastern ukraine region for kiev, for ukraine to stay united. people were telling us they certainly don't want to become
6:33 am
part of russia and don't want independence to this region of the country. they were out demonstrating, about a thousand marching through the main avenue here when are that protest turned quickly ugly indeed. there was what appeared to be a carefully coordinate add tack by groups of pro russian men with baseball bats, iron bars. i saw one man carrying a shotgun. certainly we understand from organizers more than a dozen were injured as that turned violent. a sign of real divisions in this part of the country and tensions on the ground even in the international community continues to sanction russia, russian officials and russian companies in the attempt to persuade russia to use influence on pro russian groups to deescalate the situation, reduce the tensions here. reports from nigeria say
6:34 am
some of the 200 girls abducted by the boarding school may have been sold into marriage in neighboring communities. it's been two weeks since the girls were taken on the remote borno state. it was thought the group responsible is boko haram. what do we know about where the girls might be now? >> it's difficult to know precisely. there will be some reports of initially a siting close to the border on friday. in the last 24 hours, one of the elders from the town where the school is located, he said he has information that some of the girls have been taken in boats across the lake into chad the country. others have been taken across the border into cameroon.
6:35 am
he says he has information some girls have been married off to the group boko haram. it's difficult to get information to verify this. it's certainly possible that's one of the motives for abducting the girls because when i have spoke ton other girls that managed to escape captivity over the past year or so o they've spoken about fellow captives being forced to become so called wives of militant commanders. >> is any information about the whereabouts of the girls, is it not possible to help them, identify them? >> no information coming from officials in government or military at the moment. they're saying really it's a delicate operation and to give away the kind of information the media wants might hinder information to rescue them. we've gotten no evidence the
6:36 am
military has located the girls and has a plan in place to rescue them. a big information gap at the moment. as far as the parents especially of the missing girls, it's now two weeks since they went missing. they're increasingly desperate. they're relying on rumors circulating about where they are and how they are. no information from officials is reaching them. that's adding to hair misery and desperation. incredibly two weeks since they were taken, there's still confusion over how many there were. the head mistress told us 187 missing. a gentleman i spoke to today said the number is still 230. so just seems extraordinary not do we not have accurate information on where they are, we are still not 100% clear are missing. >> alarming and sad news on
6:37 am
this. thanks very much indeed. a u.s. deadline for peace talks in the middle east has expired leaving the process in disarray. a week ago israel pulled out angry to the palestinian reconciliation deal. secretary of state john kerry pushed hard for the agreement. israel is accused calling an a par thied state. he denied. >> the israeli occupied west bank is where fences and soldiers divide the large population of palestinians who live in that direction from jewish settlers that live some of them over there. when i first came to live in this part of the world 20 years ago it was the high point of the peace process. there were lots of palestinians and israelis that thought there
6:38 am
was a good chance their lives were about to get a lot better. more than two decades on, no peace agreement and conflict continuing, i think the people now are skeptical, even cynical about the chances of things improving. they get on with their daily lives. people go to work, but it means for israelis and palestinians, there's an uncertain future. this is a cave that's being made into a home by a palestinian man who's house in occupied jerusalem was demolished by the israelis. he admits he's making a political point. he says he's living here because he wants to show the palestinians will not be shifted from their land. he says as well 20 years of peace talks have made his life
6:39 am
not better but much worse because so many israeli settlers have come to live around here. as a matter of fact the one thing that unites israelis and palestinians more than anything is skepticism about peace negotiations and about where they might ever lead. israelis say their first duty is protect their people which is why they say they have been forced to build walls and fences to separate themselves from the palestinians. now for 20 years or so, off and on, they've been talking israelis and palestinians about creating the palestinian state along side israel. the so called two state solution. the idea being they would split the land they're fighting over. look at all this. it hasn't happened. maybe the time has come to face uncomfortable fact that there will be no two state solution.
6:40 am
so commentators have been talking about alternatives. nobody has come up with anything that looks any easier than the solution they've been trying and failing to get more than 20 years. which is why on this sunny jerusalem day, the future looks stormy. >> it's a mystery that shocked the world and still unsolved. the search for the mh 370 flight has suffered another blow with investigators admitting plan a has failed. optimism had been high after searchers heard pings thought to be from the missing black boxes. the scan of the seabed found nothing. richard wes scott has been to look at the technology they may need to help find the aircraft. >> it really felt like they were
6:41 am
getting close after scouring some of the most remote corners of the world, often by site. searchers were confident they were coming in on the missing airline of the black box voice recorders after hearing electronic pings under the sea. a few weeks ago the australian prime minister said they could be within kilometers of the search site. >> we're baffled and disappoi disappointed we haven't been able to find undersea wreckage. >> looks like something out of a scifi film. sitting on the side south of england, this technology may be used. searchers may look around the world for more advanced kits to make the break through. >> this looks like the equipment they're using in australia.
6:42 am
it is bigger, stronger and can dive deeper. the problem is, there's only a handful of these around the world. they're not sitting idle. they're committed to scientific work years in advance. >> this is also our 6,000 rate today. this is the vehicle we use for mapping the bottom of the ocean. that's concrete. an auto sub can potentially find telltale wreckage. don't let the size fool you. you'd need a ship to get it there. >> you have the vehicle, launch recovery system and also a contain area like the base of operations that carries this. it's the workshop for the vehicle. to ship this, we would normally ship in three 20 foot containers. back inside is another machine normally used to gather samples for scientists. it could come in handy if and
6:43 am
when the crash site is found. this is the kind of equipment used to retrieve parts of the aircraft. very bright lights, high definition camera so people on board can see what's going on. very strong robotic arms used to pick things up and craws that won't crush delicate objects. after optimism, the trail has grown cold. families are staring at months, even years, before they know for certain the aircraft ended up here. bbc news. stay with us on bbc news. much more to come. the films that germany would rather forget. nazi propaganda movies republican on the screen ago. but should they did be?

this is bbc world news. i'm geeta guru-murthy with the top story this is hour. eu targets president putin's government as it imposes sanctions on 15 prominent russians over ukraine. reports from nigeria say the 200 abducted schoolgirls may have been taken a broad and sold into marriage. if you're in charge of a whole country, you might think someone would pay your energy bills for you where you work. that's not the case in pakistan. it's reported the office of the prime minister has been cut off. it's embarrassing the prime minister because he just acknowledged a crack down on people that default on power bills. jeffrey is in islamabad. what's happened? >> reporter: well in a way the prime minister has become a victim of his own drive against
6:47 am
defalters. last week he held a meeting with electrician and gas companies and ordered a crack down against defalte defalters. he told them they go after poor people and never go after rich people. later the gas department came and cut the connection of his office last sunday. since then, the gas is cut off. spokesperson of the gas company says that the sector had not paid the built past six months. there were 28,000 pounds outstanding against them. after repeated reminders, they cut off their gas on 0q1ah'÷dsu. spokesperson of the prime minister shows that nobody is above the law in the country. the prime minister has given a message to the rest of the
6:48 am
department. he says there's another department responsible of upkeep. it was their laziness they didn't pay the bills. >> is it really all as straight forward as that? often there's a lot of corruption linked with paying of these bills. everything in pakistan is political isn't it? >> reporter: yes, it is. many believe it's a political gimmick and he wanted to show the people he's a lawful person and it will improve image as a prime minister. on the other hand it has improved the recovery. it has sent a strong message to rest of the government departments. now the recovery has picked up. they are now paying bills. there are billions outstanding against government departments in pakistan. >> is the office connected back? how are they functions without their power?
6:49 am
>> reporter: they were functions without gas since sunday. today they have paid some of the amount and now their gas is being restored. >> okay, thanks very much. now, germany can never escape the nazi past, but it's taking steps to come to terms with it. at the moment in berlin, films from the era are being screened. the community must attend the debate before the screening. is this enough? steve went to one showing. >> reporter: it is 80 years old, classic of its time, a film about the spirit of sacrifice of german use. since the war it's been banned to the public.
6:50 am
it's good drama but propaganda. the nazi son and unshaven brute father. this film was made in 1933 and given as a gift by the film company to hitler. 80 years on it remains controversial. it is well made, powerful, dangerous. so dangerous the screenings have to be preceded by a lecture. germans can only see the film if first told of evils of nazis. >> maybe 20 years or so ago, people would have been more frightened to see these films in public. now we can find they are well
6:51 am
made films. they have a propaganda sort of message. still it is part of our heritage. at least we shall discuss them. we shall not lock other way them. >> should this heritage be freely available on dvd perhaps? did did the audience feel they needed the lecture? > > . >> i feel educated enough myself without lecture. >> germany is always coping with its past, even 70 years on. it does debate, does think as germany reinvents itself as a global economic power. the shadow never goes. bbc news berlin. now with a few weeks to go until the start of the world cup, brazil has trained one in
