get the file it's remained relatively muted the real echo has been on the international diplomatic front. all along color come on let me look at this 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.
though 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 well 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 this 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 to try 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 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. have us tanya kramer speaking to us there in jerusalem thank you for the us. hundreds of prominent artists have called on the turkish government to free imprisoned german journalists and as you chel popstars bano and staying in several nobel prize winning authors are among those who've signed a letter calling on uncorrect to free dennis he is a writer for a german newspaper it developed sunday will mark his three hundredth day in prison the turkish authorities accuse him of being a spy and a terrorist he was jailed after reporting on corruption in the government there it's still unclear when he'll face trial. now to some of the other stories making

a bit that one really swept the awards this year because often the european film awards like to give prizes to more serious movies this is really laugh out loud funny and i really think it will scott now pretty good chance to maybe go on and maybe go to l.a. maybe maybe do some do some work at the oscars in a couple of months excellent square but what about some of the other highlights yeah i mean the europeans awards are always really political and this year was no exception and for me the most impressive moment was that there's a german director who's also president of the european film academy he gave a really passionate speech again. it's nationalism which as you know is rising across europe and he decried nationalism sculley of the old sickness of europe and he called the people in the crowd which are all filmmakers just stand up against that and said what you're what we need is more europe and more diversity and that's definitely what was on display tonight because unlike maybe some of the other film awards out there the european film awards are all about diversity you have this
incredible range of filmmakers and and film styles across the entire with stephanie not if there's a good overture is now what about reckon they are watching tonight yeah definitely i mean they mention the square it's already sweden's contender for the best foreign language film for the oscars i think this gives another push up and maybe even beyond that maybe it could get some nominations outside the four language category another person people maybe of noticed from hollywood from tonight was the best actress winner alexander belly she's an actress she was in on body and soul and she plays a autistic woman who somehow finds love in an avatar of all places a very very funny film as well she's incredibly touching in this in a performance and was really a discovery for me i've never seen her in a film before she really blew me away obviously did for the european film academy as well and who knows she might be getting a call from hollywood any time soon fantastic so it's got rocks for thank you very
