6:01 am
japan and back again. hello. thanks for being with us on bbc world news. three palestinians killed, four injured in an irali raid on central gaza. it's the latest incident recorded of strikes on gaza over the last few days. palestinian medical officials say the total killed since hostilities broke out stands at 78. most of them are civilians. the egyptian government ordered the opening of the strip. that is for palestinians to be treated there. israel says in 24 hours, more than 100 rockets have been launched onto itself land from the gaza strike. one strike killed nine people as they watched the world cup in a beach cafe.
6:02 am
with me now is bbc arabic editor on what is clearly a messy affair on both sides of the fence. let's be honest. what's the impression you're getting as to where this is leading? >> it's not clear what israeliss are planning for coming days or next hours. the latest we've got through our correspondent there is that israelis warn some people in the northern part of gaza to evacuate their houses which could be interpreted by analysts, could be the beginning of ground operations. it could be also for air strikes because this is the israeli measures taken sometimes when they ask people to evacuate before attacking. >> right. they've not been afraid to step back from talking about ground offense. that's clear. both sides it seems have no real qualms about saying we're not
6:03 am
interested in the cease fire unless -- >> of course. both parties were pushed to the edge now. behind this, there should be political solutions at the end. still we don't know how this will will unfold in the coming days on the military level. hamas went to the extreme yesterday. one of the top leaders gave the speech. he was urging people in the west bank as well to start a new uprising. >> we're looking at pictures here. what is in it for hamas to maintain this situation at the moment? >> hamas consider from their own angle they were pushed to that. they didn't choose to go to war and israelis provoked them into this. on the israeli side, it's the opposite. they consider hamas led to all these violence in gaza. >> of course both sides could
6:04 am
say let's sort this out between us, have a break, a truce. it feels as though neither side wants that? >> of course. this sort of war, tactics are aiming for political plans. this is not clear what israelis are aiming. yesterday one of the top leaders of hamas hinted we would not go back to truce period. so he was like setting the ceilings or the cards on the table if there is room for negotiations in the coming days. there were rumors regarding an egyptian mediation. we still don't know the details. there is something happening behind the doors on the political level. all sort of declarations or statements or positions now will help into this in a way. >> and the importance of opening the border crossing.
6:05 am
will there be a lot of palestinians use that? >> it's only one day as far as we understood and for humanitarian reasons to evacuate. egyptians couldn't keep the blind eye of what's happening in gaza. they should do something, give a hand, and this is the way they found. >> purely temporary. thanks very much. we'll certainly bring you the latest developments on the story as they come to us and as it unfolds. follow the updates and analysis on the website. just to remind you, the address the ukrainian government delivered a stark warning to pro-russian separatists in donetsk it's determined to take back the city which is the regional capital of the east of the city. ukrainian forces have pushed rebels out of their best strong

6:07 am
stalemate. >> they've been taken back by government forces. they're going to do the same thing with donetsk. >> i would say a victory of the army wasn't planned to retreat. there's just no point of defendi defendi defendi defending. most forces here are called to regroup to come up with a plan. i think the next move will be an attack. >> an attack by your forces you say? >> yeah. >> right. in which direction? are you still getting material, support armed men coming from
6:08 am
russia? >> i can't say much about it. from what i've seen, most of the arms are coming from donetsk region. most are ex ukrainian weapons. there are willing to fight. >> the donetsk people's republic. here's stirring pictures. tropical storm neoguri forced thousands to seek shelter. it has killed three in the south of the country injured others as well. it's been downgraded from a typhoon but still causing lots
6:09 am
of damage. >> the effect of several days of torrential rain, typhoon neoguri might have weakened to a tropical storm but it's stretching furtherer and further here. conditions are perilous. landslides have decimated huge areas of the country side. >> i thought it was an earthquake at first. then earth and sand flowed into the house. i was clinging to a wooden pillar. >> a 12-year-old boy was killed with when his house was swept away 10 minutes before he was due to be evacuated. two men were killed when they fell into irrigation ditches. >> it's always scary this time of year with heavy rainfall. i get worried. >> when the storm plowed in thursday morning it was gusting up to 126 kilometers per hour. elsewhere the main damage is being caused by heavy rainfall
6:10 am
and flooding. >> bridges have been destroyed, cars overturned and railway lines rip ed from the ground. trains have been cancelled including the bullet. workers have started to clear up debris after the storm. as rain continues to fall, concern for the next 24 hours is spreading to the rest of japan. >> time for business. aaron is here. big country with a big budget day. lots of problems to sort out. hopefully this budget will do that. hello. this is what india's prime minister has warned his country needs to get the country back on track. he swept in may. we've got the details of his government's first budget. they announce measures to attract foreign investment and stabilize government finances.

news with me david eades. the latest headlines. israel continues to pound gaza for a third day with 80 palestinians reported killed in this week's air strikes. there's widespread damage in japan has a tropical storm brings flooding and landslides. one of south africa's most notorious figures waiting to hear if his parole will be granted. he was sentenced to 212 years in jail in 1996 for the torture and murder of black south african activists in the 80s and 90s. let's get the latest from milton. parole or no parole? >> we have just found out from the justice and correctional minister, he told south africans the former squad leader of the
6:17 am
apartheid government has been denied parole. he's already spent 20 years in prison for a prison sentence of 212 plus a life sentence. he applied for parole. parole has been denied. the minister said he denied the parole because he found out that victims of those who were killed had not been consulted. he said mr. dekock can apply in three months. >> he's recanted hasn't me? >> very much so. de kock was an apartheid leader, ran an operation from a farm. his nickname was prime evil. he appears as a very intelligence man. wears thick lens glasses and
6:18 am
apparently is polite. according to those that know him, he once killed a man because his colleagues got jammed so he used a spade to kill an apartheid activist. we'll hear in a year's time whether he gets to be a free man. >> if he is freed, is that going to create rupture in south africa or is this seen as something from the past? >> we'll have to see david. south africa has moved through the truth and reconciliation commission. nelson man della was leading the debate. people are talking about it on social media and radio stations. >> thanks very much. let's move onto the world cup. argentina is through to the
6:19 am
final, playing germany in rio after beating netherlands on penalties. >> blue and white or simply orange, original tiargentina fa good choice. ♪ we are the champions >> feeling at home in brazil, both sides had a point to prove making it to the finals. the key players made their chances, messy and created more than rivals. he broke away from what seemed a three man defense from his left food. they struggled to break through. the game was tough and lived up to it's name as a contact sport. pressure on the keepers was consistent if not overwhelming. neither gave away too much. counter attacks came and what. a number of fans ask, what if?
6:20 am
plenty of good will, both watched on at the shootout. rodriguez never doubted his role at this point. argentina get a chance to prove worth as they take on great rivals germany. for day 28 of the world cup, this ends on a sad note for some. for the other half, well the rhythm of football keeps going on. bbc news. >> going to change the mood again. going to iraq where the kurdish leader has called on the leader to step down. all this comes exactly a month since isis seized mosul. here they are. heavy fighting has been taking place across the country. government forces try to stop the advance of isis troops and
6:21 am
take land back again. isis have taken control of vast areas in the north and west of iraq. for example, you can see tikrit there, fighting in other areas as well. it extends from aleppo down the east to iraq. that yellow area as you see, that's the area of operations for isis now. let's have a look back at key events in the past month. hundreds of isis fighters seized the city of mosul on the 10th of june. they took the airport, government buildings. a day later, insurgents took control of tikrit. isis continued the advance towards baghdad moving into towns an hour away. isis declares formation of islamic state. the first session of the iraqi
6:22 am
parliament ended with no agreement at all on the prime minister, president or speaker. the kurdish leader did announce an independence referendum will be held in a matter of months. now today the united nations has said materials seized by isis do not pose a security risk. it's a response to news isis may have obtained nuclear materials from the university in mosul. we are in baghdad. >> of course there's alarming -- despite the initial assessment from the international agency for atomic energy. i said earlier this whole thing of weapons of mass destruction. it's been used in the past for political reasons. the fact here we're talking about is the control of militant
6:23 am
organization, radical organization, isis, of a large swatch of iraq and syria. big cities like mosul and tikrit that have universities and scientific institutions. this is actually the fact that should be alarming more and of course the fact that isis captured heavy weaponry from its battles with the iraqi army last month. this whole thing is alarming enough. >> are there clear indications as to how far iraqi government efforts might have gone in terms of looking at nuclear as a possible source of weaponry? >> not yet. of course, but for the iraqi government this is a crucial battle. they have to win it.
6:24 am
of course they need the support of the international community. so they need to make their case. so far we have seen the slow progress in the iraqi armies attempts to retake the cities and towns that they lost for isis last month. for now, as things stand, without a significant military support, specifically, american air support, or without a significant change within the sunni minority in iraq, you know, those attempts to regain control of the parts of iraq that the government lost, it will be a struggle and not easy. when a farmer in oklahoma saw his mobile phone disappear in a pit of grain, he thought it was gone. he got a call from another country.
6:25 am
>> there's pictures on here i forgot about. >> this oklahoma farmer dropped his phone with little hope to see it again. >> had it in my pocket. bent over to work on a hopper bottom door. it fell out of my pocket into the grain pent. went up the elevator. i thought i'll never see that phone again. >> that was in oklahoma. the phone traveled by trip to japan where it was mixed with 2 million bushels of grain. then mr. whitney received a phone call. >> is this kevin whitney? >> i said yeah, this is kevin. he said did you lose a cellphone? i said yeah i lost a phone last fall. >> a worker at the mill found the phone, scrolled through to find the owner contact. >> i couldn't believe it. what shocked me about it when i got the phone call is what a
6:26 am
small world it is. >> a small world it traveled around without suffering so much as a strike. thanks for watching bbc world news. you bring your banged up car to the repair shop. when you get it back, the paint job doesn't match. the guy who owns the shop says "looks fine to me". of course, he's wearing red pants with an orange shirt. his cashier says "if you squint you don't even notice it". what?! use a liberty mutual approved repair shop and all repairs are guaranteed for as long as you own your car. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.

6:32 am
last night as they watched the world cup in the beach cafe. the bbc is in gaza. >> the streets now in gaza city are completely empty. as you can see a densely populated place. nobody at all is on the street. it's been a noisy night here, shelling by forces. the israeli military says it's hit more than 100 targets since midnight. in that time it says five rocks hit israel fired by militants in gaza and further seven intercepted by the defense system. of course here at the moment there's a lot of concern about the increasing number of civilians killed. more than 60 having killed in gaza since the military operation began on tuesday. increasingly civilians have been killed. the policy of going after
6:33 am
militants in their homes. one case where the israeli military apologized saying it was a tragedy what happened to to a house that belonged to a commander. they have a policy of doing a knock on roof idea. they either send a rocket as a warning or send a call telling people to leave and then attack it. people massed there in a human shield thinking it would stop it from being attacked. israel returned too early to the home. eight people were killed in that attack. that having been said, there are a number of people who got killed in a beach side cafe as they were watching the world cup semi final not far away- night. this policy still going after homes seems to be continuing. >> israel of course has been on the receiving end of hamas rocket attacks coming from gaza.
6:34 am
our correspondent james reynolds sent us this report. >> this is one of the most recent palestinian rocket hits on israel. this is an art workshop in the village. i want to show you the damage here. here's the rubble. look beyond the police tape up towards the room. that's where the rocket landed. it punched through the room. there was no one inthat workshop at the time. that wasn't the only hit on this small village last night. there's a family home you can't see a couple of blocks away. a rocket landed in the play room of that house. no one was in the t house at the time so no one was injured. this community has been shake aen. it's following the military operation in gaza. i can hear a drone in the sky at the moment very high. people here say they want calm.
6:35 am
they're fed up of rocket strikes, feel vulnerable. they want the israeli army to act. >> that's the situation on the ground. what about the political responses? >> president of the palestinian national initiative party told us that hamas is ready to stop attacks on israel. >> hamas is ready. they told us yesterday. their president told us they are ready to immediately stop all firing of rockets if israel stops attacking them. they're ready to accept a mutual declaration of cease fire. this could bring a huge massacre in gaza. two previous attacks on gaza, israel kill d 2,000 palestinians including children. this would be grave and much larger massacre. gaza is only 140 square miles
6:36 am
with 1.8 million people living in it. it's the most populated area in the world. as we are seeing today, any israeli bombs, israeli air strike will affect the lives of people. >> he's saying hamas is ready to stop rockets provided the israelis stop their air strikes. this is the response from the israeli government spokesman. >> with all fairness, he's not a spokesman from hamas. if they want to stop firing rockets they can do it. >> maybe you need an agreement on a time at which both sides just stop? i'm sure there's no point batting back and forth about who started it. >> we can have that discussion if you want. israel does not want to see a
6:37 am
situation. we've been hitting hamas very hard over the last three days. we don't want a situation where okay. you have a i quick fix band aid. hamas gets to regroup. then once again you have missiles on israel. this immediate quick fix to give hamas a breather, that's not going to happen. there was ample deescalate before this. messages were sent to try and prevent this. hamas kept sending rockets into israel trying to kill our people. we were forced to respond. we don't want to give hamas a basketball term, a timeout to come back with more energy to come back and hit us next week. details of a leaked official government plot about the plot to blow up the eiffel tower and
6:38 am
other landmarks. it coincides with the revelations of this week. we are in paris with christian. tell us more. >> no doubt david this plot was leaked to strengthen the government's case for terror laws. it points to a man living in south eastern france, a 29-year-old butcher who was in communication with a senior lieutenant from al qaeda in the islamic. through the course of communication in encrypted messages which were ciphered by the intelligence services, he alluded to targets such as eiffel tower, popular with tourists. also small nightclubs where average citizens from poorer classes might gather.
6:39 am
he impressed the people he was a talking to so much they invited him for training in nigeria. he would return to france to a wait instructions. france worries there's an increasing number of people like him, those that have been to fight in syria that pose a threat in france. yesterday tighter laws were introduced by the interior minister that will try to prevent these lone wolves from carrying out attacks. >> is it clear how close he got? >> it's not. from the reports we've had from the french media, it's not clear whether he was any near toer to carrying out attacks. i assume he was not. the french government say there are people they want to prevent from traveling. under the bill laid out
6:40 am
yesterday, there will be travel bans up to six months renewable at the discretion of the interior minister of people like him they pick up on websites. they're trying to put forward passenger lists, people that can't book tickets or shouldn't be allowed. those that do -- it's difficult to stop people traveling within the area. they will be subject to international arrest warrant. there's also legislation within the new bill that would allow intelligence officers to circulate within internet websites. laws david that are similar to child pornography laws. they'd be able to close down sites that encourage these lone wolves. they have experience in france. we have the attack in brussels recently. the man that killed three at a jewish museum and also mohammed
6:41 am
that turned guns on a jewish community. these are people they have in their sights and want to prevent it again. >> that puts us on a theme. here in britain, the prime minister announced he's rushing through emergency law to give police and spy agencies access to mobile phones and internet data. he says powers are needed to keep people safe from criminals and terrorists targeting the uk. >> i'm not talking about the content of communications just the fact they took place. the so called communications data. information about who contacted who, when, where. this is at the heart of our entire criminal justice system. it's used in 95% of all serious organized crime cases handled by the crime prosecution service. it's been used in every major security service, counter
6:42 am
terrorism investigation over the past decade. it's the foundation of prosecutions of pedophiles, drug dealers and frauds. the killers have reached drones in the men that groomed young girls would not have been convicted. >> interestingly coming out now, it's a common theme for countries. >> the prime minister was references iraq and syria has one of the reasons this emergency legislation is needed. actually the real reason is to deal with a court ruling by the european court justice in april which validated the existing system of keeping phone and e-mail records. this has been done a number of years and all european countries were doing in different ways implementing this from europe. in april it was said it was
6:43 am
disproportionate the way it was done. effectively the system became invalid. the government here is saying we need to put our own system in place as fast as we can so we can continue to keep the phone records and e-mail records so that police and security services act. they are making the case. this isn't new powers. it's not new powers in the way france are talking about. this is maintain an existing capability to do something they've been doing. >> it will be as much power. they're not relink kwishing eating senator. >> no, they're not. they're saying we'll put more privacy and safeguards around the use of power. more transparency, more information about how it's being used. the power is not theically new. also there's a kind of clarification of the relationship with companies. this is held by companies like
