this is. from berlin after a stunning loss of life in a single day in gaza the un security council holds an emergency session as palestinians and the international community condemns the excessive use of force by israeli troops but the united states it is defending israel meanwhile protests have moved to the west bank where palestinians have been marking what they call the catastrophe the displacement of their people when israel was founded seven decades
ago. also coming up tens of thousands of people have been killed in mexico's drug wars but who supplied the weapons six former employees of the german company go on trial. plus of football's world champions germany pick a provisional squad to defend. it includes a star goalkeeper manuel neuer even though he hasn't played for months some star players were surprised a loser. it's good to have you with us after one of the deadliest days in their conflict with israel palestinians in gaza spent this tuesday burying their dead almost sixty people killed by israeli troops on monday there were more pro. as in the west bank
today and worldwide condemnation of israel the u.n. security council held an emergency session today the palestinian ambassador to the u.n. he had this to say that about. we condemn in the most emphatic times the odor the massacre committed by israel in the gaza strip. one look at it call for a hold to the military aggression and some people immediately. and we call for a transparent independent international inquiry to be conducted. where u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley defended israel's response to the protest in gaza no country in the stranger would act with more restraint than israel has in fact the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained those who suggest that the gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the american embassy are sorely mistaken rather the
violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of israel in any vocation. and that was nikki haley now in the meantime the situation on the ground in the palestinian territories it remains tense authorities in gaza say two protesters were shot dead today by israeli forces there was also violence in the west bank town of bethlehem where israeli soldiers fired tear gas to disperse small groups of protesters they were marking what they called the catastrophe of the day seventy years ago when palestinians were displaced by the founding of israel. but correspondent myers waiter is in jerusalem tonight where protesters have been outside prime minister netanyahu is residents are showing their anger at yesterday's violence on the border good evening to you miles or tell us more about what is going on there right now. france or what you're seeing behind me are as the
end of this protest was started up the street at prime minister benjamin netanyahu residence and marched down to where we are now which is actually in front of the old u.s. consulate which is still in fact functional and what you'll notice about these protesters is that they're mostly very young this is what the israeli left looks like right now they're young voters who feel very disenfranchised and very unheard if you're a left wing person in israel right now you're having a very bad week or really a very bad couple of years as netanyahu has base of support is very very solid and he has no incentive to try to compromise on anything that he's doing right now and yeah you speak there to the demographic divisions in israeli society what about public opinion in reaction to the violence on the dogs of border yesterday. it is a deepening division in israeli society you particularly see it in these protesters who say that they are absolutely horrified by what they've seen and one of them was
actually holding a sign saying that that eight month old little baby girl who died in gaza yesterday saying the sign said bibi her blood is on your hands israeli public opinion at bread is very much on netanyahu side but there is a very vocal minority who is trying to work to build bridges with the palestinians and to stop this sort of violence and a lot of these people at this protest are those sorts of people however as we've said there really is no incentive for netanyahu to listen to these people to compromise with them to try to reach out to them in any way or include the israeli left in his policies right now because he is having to as we've said throughout the week he's having a very good week at his base of support the public opinion in israel is very much in general on his side we've seen cars driving by these protesters a lot of people making very rude gestures out of their windows at the protesters and driving by the u.s. consulate shouting things like donald trump thank you very much. you know internationally international community around lee condemned the israeli government
forged use of deadly force the israeli ambassador to the u.n. spoke earlier let's take a listen to what he had to say wouldn't go down to the mob rushing to the fans to many of the international community never meet them up with unity to legitimize the palestinian a voice. but when it comes to the three fifty or the very public too often the board is silent so what has the government said today. the government in particularly netanyahu today spends most of the day defending what israel did in gaza and promoting their story which is that hamas is the one that killed all these people essentially hamas is the one that sent those thousands and thousands of palestinians to the border who were then fired on by the israeli troops and also promoting the line of hay is written israel has tried other methods
they've tried nonviolent tactics talking about the fact that they dropped fliers into gaza telling people not to go to the border saying that hamas was using them as human shields and this is been the israeli line saying that this is not our fault we tried everything and hamas pushed these people forward oh right a correspondent my enjoyment on the story for us tonight in jerusalem why i think you. what is life like in gaza people there have been living under a blockade by israel and egypt for nearly twelve years hemmed in by land sea and air they describe a wife in the territory as well being in prison before the ways violence w.'s talking ukraine spoke to young palestinians in go about their hopes and their fears for their future. a niece of who on his way to training in the east of
the gaza strip sport and those him to switch from the pit to reality around him. a nice studies english literature at university in gaza city language is his key to the world and the country said he has yet to visit. you know be difficult so what do you want to look to the future finish school find a job find a place to live get married but i want there's no hope there's no hope in augusta because the only thing is to finish and travel is at that here in little subtle thomas which at twenty three a nice has only traveled abroad once to neighboring egypt the protests in gaza an issue at university and these things the demos porton but also too dangerous to hell in will the solution is that there should be some ease from the israeli side for the gaza strip a meeting that they open the border crossings and that will travel to provide them
with employment so that they are able to work and to pay attention to something else that is still really looked after as a ten year gaza's tide borders on in this capable reality for most people here for more than twelve years israel and egypt have sealed off the hamas controlled territory. nearby at the islamic university usma and. looking for new stories about everyday life for the beauty of the hunted twins have made a name for themselves on social media and if isn't that then the corn field of vision is to put content on the internet that shows gallion city as a normal city and not a place of war where people are just terrorists and troublemakers and even one the cows are is not like this and we are known for these architect to students have also from the demonstration taking place on gaza's borders they say they support the protests because they have put on the agenda and raise the issue of the right
of free turn for palestinian refugees their own grandparents fled to gaza in one nine hundred forty eight. but it's been a mystery that's allowed when it comes to the return matches from the moment they started i absolutely did not expect them to be this big i was very surprised with how people got involved in the us even people who would not be very much into such activity is. it out but. the protests along the border between gaza and israel have been ongoing for seven weeks israel says hamas is treating the demonstrations but it is and his friends say that young people have their own reasons for protesting they feel they don't have much left to lose. most of the us would leave if the border crossings were to open there's no future here so your life is abroad if you stay here it means that you would use expires i was thirteen years of my life like that. you know mix or come stances and the crossing points
these are the aspects that i need to change the most i wish i would see them change everybody wishes the same they want things to get better and to have the prospect of a normal life to elusive goes that gaza's younger generation has dreamed about for years. well tonight north korea is threatening to call off a summit with the united states scheduled for next month because of military drills that the u.s. and south korea are carrying out together now that's according to north korea's official news agency hopes were high after a summit between north korean president kim jong un and his southern counterpart to move in last month the two leaders promised to pursue denuclearization of the korean peninsula and to end the korean war has also canceled high level talks with the south which were scheduled for tomorrow wednesday. theories of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world at least sixteen people have

you know it's just one of his great thelma is here dell with our business bonfire for the absolutely icon the show that we use the same narrative technique try six former employees that all of the gemini. gun make ahead and call have gone on trial on charges of illegally exporting weapons to mexico which were used in suspected crimes and and indeed guns tanks submarines and ammunition made in germany all popular making it the walls for the biggest arms export last year german firms sold forty percent of their weapons to e.u. and nato countries in haven see that the remaining sixty percent went to other countries around the world in every single german needs a government license to knavery to nations outside the e.u. and nato come under particular scrutiny to make sure that they comply with the following criteria so they have to meet human rights standards they must not
endanger regional political stability and they shouldn't clash either with germany or the european union's political interests the question is though who is his to those principles will those on trial here in germany right now are accused of supplying rifles that were used in crimes including the suspected massacre of of forty three mexican students in twenty fourteen if found guilty they could face up to five years in prison. in twenty fourteen a bus full of mexican students was attacked by mexican police six of the students were killed and forty three others disappeared without a trace since then investigators have determined that the attackers used heckler and koch handguns that's proof that the german weapons makers guns landed in certain mexican states illegally the german government gave the green light to sell to the mexican government under the condition that certain states would not receive any of the weapons critics however say that all parties involved knew that control
over the distribution would be lost once the weapons and to the country exports to countries with dubious human rights records have proved profitable for a heckler and koch in the past. revenue took a hit after an export ban to the middle east in twenty fourteen in twenty sixteen the company decided to only sell its products to safe and stable democracies. eight years after an anti arms trade activist filed charges prosecutors in stuttgart are bringing the case against the trial at a district court some fifty protesters demonstrated against weapons exports it's the biggest trial in german history concerning the export of small arms. the world trade organization says the e.u. has been illegally providing subsidies to european plane maker the move could prompt retaliates remission measures worth billions of dollars from the united
states routing is the latest twist to dispute the dates back well over a decade. at the center of the dispute are the world's two largest plane makers european aviation giant airbus and its u.s. rival boeing the w t o ruling upholds a claim by the united states that the european union has been illegally subsidizing two kinds of aircraft made by airbus the a three eighty super jumbo and the a three fifty twin aisle jess that says the trade body has led to lost sales for boeing the decision enables the united states to seek the right to impose sanctions against the e.u. u.s. trade representative robert life hisor had this to say in response. this report confirms once and for all that the e.u. has long ignored w t o rules aren't even worse aircraft subsidies have cost
american aerospace companies tens of billions of dollars in lost revenue. the e.u. says it will take swift action to ensure it's in line with w t o rules but pointed out that the vast majority of u.s. claims were rejected. but the story doesn't end there the e.u. has brought its own case against the united states accusing it is of illegally subsidizing boeing the outcome of that case won't be known until later this year the tit for tough battle to dominate the skies comes at a time of a ready soaring trade tensions between the united states and the european union most recently concerning the threat of u.s. tariffs on e.u. steel imports the upcoming ruling on alleged u.s. subsidized ation of boeing is likely to lead to further turbulence and in new york standing by for us is our financial correspondent yes cool to see and we have another facets in the global trade dispute brewing what response can we expect from
washington at this point it seems pretty likely that the u.s. will impose a mess of tariffs maybe already at the start of twenty nineteen and when i say mess if expectations are we are talking billions of dollars maybe up to nine billion dollars and those terrorists will probably be not imposed on planes but on any product out of europe that the u.s. pleases we have to wait and see if it is going to comply with the w t o rules rather quickly and then maybe you can avoid some of those terrorists but at least at this point that's the likely scenario by the way there's also a case pending at the w t o regarding boeing that they also receive subsidies from the e.u. as side but this case is probably going to take years to be decided and of course we also have the chinese trade delegation on a return visit to the u.s.
what do we know so far. well we do not have that many details yet on the chinese delegates being here in the united states an old saw the general. told out of washington is the narrative is not necessarily consistent on one side we had the u.s. ambassador on china saying that the two sides are still well apart far apart to wait it comes to the trade talks on the other side larry kudlow one of the economic advisors to the u.s. president in an interview i was talking about a bromance between the u.s. and the chinese have president this good relationship that the two are having eventually could lead to a successful trade talker but it's really a wide open if those two countries the two biggest economies on the planet will find some common ground all right yes quarter for us in new york thank you.
finally we all know that the way we work what we earn how we need changing a lightning speed is commerce and industry changes as well so to keep up with the trends do you join us for. gemini. that you don't use new business magazine delving into everything from innovation to the shadowy side on the digitalisation don't miss a show on remuneration vs motivation is coming up in just over an hour or catch up any time on our web site www dot com thing with slash this. and it's back of it now well if you want to do business in your dancing to absolutely one zero zero and thank you very much the rainy void minister mohammed zarif has held talks in brussels tonight with top e.u.
officials in the future of the iranian nuclear deal alissa reid held what he called a constructive meeting with the e.u.'s top diplomat for the rican marine afterwards he met the foreign ministers of germany britain france tehran is urging europe to resist pressure from washington that's after the u.s. move to withdraw from the pact cast dell over the deal's future. america's withdrawal has also raised tensions with traditional allies the german chancellor angela merkel weighed in on that today well meant by the way we have now seen a rest and german american and european american relations we britain germany and france were of the opinion that the agreement on iran's nuclear program such only has weaknesses. but is an agreement that we should add here to. the american president so things differently. our vote was to impact their lives take this over
now to our correspondent much as he's on the story for us in brussels good evening to you georg so we've got the german chancellor and others saying again and again we want to keep the deal a live are they going to have to do it and do we know how. clearly there is no a magic option here and e.u. ministers are fully aware of that and that is why you have our strengths in for instance and said they're now looking at a whole package of options they want to explore some of them for instance involve the idea of providing credits to medium and small sized enterprises in europe to continue to make deals and to trade with iran as so that the european part of the promise could be fulfilled and they will always be careful here not to provoke the u.s. too much it's it's a thin line they're dragging because one thing is clear the europeans do not want to risk any counter sanctions or kick of a trade war with the u.s.
here yeah and that leads to the next question you know how exposed are the europeans right now we know that after the iran nuclear deal was reached in two thousand and fifteen we had that we saw a lot of europeans a lot of german companies rushing in to invest in iraq. well here here are two numbers that if you face a cli the answer and that is the the trade with iran between germany and iran totaled three billion euros now the trade with the u.s. and germany totals one hundred billion euros and if you want that already gives you the answer yes europeans are keen to keep the trade with iran going they have a vested business interest and they have not just a matter of pride because they help to bring this deal about but they also believe into the deal so there's also a diplomatic agency here they really want to keep this deal for the sake of it to provide security for europe but at the same time they are fully aware that there is
a lot at risk and that is why boris johnson said we have to be realistic about the electrified rail on the issue here yet and the fact that we're even talking about these realistic sanctions being slapped on europe by the u.s. i mean it tells us that we have a deterioration in transatlantic relations have we seen things this bad before i mean are we looking at a real divergence where there is no coming back from the head of the european commission's uncle junker. said put it in a nutshell basically and said transatlantic relations are in a crisis now we had a crisis before for instance if you think back at the time of the iraq war but it was always a diplomatic route this time it's more than that because it's not just the fact that trump has rejected advice from key allies but he is questioning the entire architecture he's questioning a u.n. approved deal he's questioning the multilateralism that has brought this deal about
. our correspondent is on the story for us. thank you. germany. has a preliminary squad for the world cup in russia today there was news about star players on and off the bit. mano noirs face welcome visitors to the german football museum on tuesday she was named in germany's provisional squad for the upcoming world cup despite injury concerns but the goalkeeper shouldn't because to get to russia just yet to be sent by disciples sides have to be completely honest because we can definitely say that no one can participate in this tournament without full match fitness. with plenty of players at his disposal gave some insight into his decision making process. was the only dot com player selected. who scored the winning goal in the two thousand and fourteen final was left out. at
the bronze in the mario is a quality player he has proven that to us but this season he wasn't at his best that's why i'm very sorry for him. and your own business like the biggest surprise of the day was fly book striker at neil's pietersen who has never played for the senior national team. nils played with a team that doesn't usually create a lot of chances in the. box he scored fifteen goals and it's no fun tortuous another at the when he steps onto the pitch he makes his presence known companies are you most of my gut feeling tells me that he will step up to the challenge thank you for the summit that. is his inclusion wasn't a surprise yet he made headlines after meeting with turkish president recha type error than the encounter which teammate also attended will probably not affect the player's future in the team though with live keen to ease any tension.
i have some understanding for them because i know that people with an immigrant background often have two hearts beating inside their chests and that is not always easy. so i'm focused on in which the playing and. three faces will be wiped off this wall when the final squad is announced on june fourth one of them will be a keeper perhaps even manuel neuer. to take you through the day but after this.
