decision is entirely provocation let me speak clearly we will never give our consent to this decision that tramples muslim and christian rights on jerusalem will bizarre turn. the united nations security council also stood against trumps move. these decisions are helpful to the prospects for peace in the region a name that i know all of us in this council remain committed to this was welcomed by palestinian groups. it's very positive that many countries of the world came out to say that what america has done is not in the interests of the palestinians know the palestinian cause and not in the interests of the middle east in general. you know them but anger at donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital has gone global demonstrations in london athens tunis
and rome. scenes from around the world echoing the cold of those living at the center of the tensions in jerusalem it sounds. as go live to jerusalem on our correspondent tanya kramer right now and there have been clashes on the streets of jerusalem throughout the day but they were thankfully not as violent as feared what is the situation in the city right now where i'm standing here in is through some it's relatively quiet now i mean you see the streets almost empty it's also rather code so people are probably staying at home but the scene here protests today especially here in this main shopping street today and also there were protests as you seen in the reports in the occupied west bank and also in the gaza strip more intense of that also dozens of people injured
so people here are saying you know we have two ways of dealing with this is either going out on the streets but they're also hoping that their political leadership will basically come up with some kind of plan and some kind of response to this decision by mr trump and one of the responses of course is the arab league meeting which is taking place right now in cairo what exactly are palestinians hoping for. well we heard officials in ramallah saying today and also the foreign policy and foreign minister saying that they are hoping for a very strong word just a statement of condemnation by the arab league they are hoping also and i think this is what you have to look at that this some kind of maybe action plan i mean the arab league is not really known for going much further than the statements but i think what the palestinians are hoping for is that they have finding some kind of common response with other countries what to do next and to decide on the next
steps and they hope of course i mean they see that the u.s. isolated itself with this decision they hope also to make some impact for example when it comes to decisions on the u.n. security council. that was tanya kramer speaking to us there in jerusalem thank you for that. hundreds of prominent artists have called on the turkish government to free imprisoned german journalist and as you chat popstars bano and staying and several nobel prize winning author is are among those who've signed a letter calling on her to free dennis each is a writer for a german newspaper de velde sunday will mark his three hundredth day in prison and the turkish government accuses him of being a spy and a terrorist he was jailed after of course on corruption in the government there it's still unclear when he'll face trial. and some of the other stories making headlines this hour. iraqi prime minister buddy has declared victory
