4:02 pm
a margin of thirty eight to thirty one the bill that would have allowed abortion up to the fourteenth week of pregnancy the issue has deeply divisive in argentina it's the homeland of pope francis and the roman catholic church campaign strongly against the proposed lol. the marathon session in the argentinian senate and it shortly before three am as the news broke opponents of the bill erupted in celebration abortion remains essentially illegal yet we came from the country and we're here to protect the rights of the unborn child i thank god and the senators. prior to the decision thousands of pro-choice demonstrators had gathered outside the senate building and the cold and rain the majority of them came here to protest the senate they're the ones responsible for all those women who have died during an illegal abortion they are murderers. a slim majority of argentinian senators
4:03 pm
eventually rejected a bill that would have legalized abortion. the decision came after heavy pressure from the argentinian catholic church which lobbied hard against the bill. now at the recent polls suggest that most option times back legalizing abortion the votes left many frustrated and disappointed beatings of violent protests in some areas. joining me now is a she is a journalist in bonus you said tell us more about the reaction there to that very emotional senate vote on abortion we just saw violence in the streets of going aside this. that's read after fifteen hours of the senator of being in the congress debating this bill they finally voted at three am and many many protesters stayed until that time to wait for the vote and some of them reacted in a violent way mainly from the pro-abortion side of course there compared to the
4:04 pm
scale of the demonstration this is a very small minority it's expected that it's estimated that about one million people came out to the streets yesterday and that people that are at the scene because of the violence are but for now it just seven men and one woman so compared to the scale of the them straight violence we can say that it was a very small part lucky but it's true that a lot of the demonstrators were sorting out stones and bottles police reacted with tear gas to some of the scenes last night at three where were quite violent and concerned things. you see why is the country so divided over legalizing abortion. well you mentioned it a bit in the report but the main reason is religion like many latin american countries argentina so while the catholic country over seventy six percent of the population is christian and the poll by the catholic church have come out strongly
4:05 pm
against this bill so in argentina a woman who undergo abortion can be jailed for up to four years but this is a lot of women it's estimated almost half a million women every year undergo this procedure. and yet the main division i think is is religious and it's very interesting because the abortion issue has divided even political parties in this case yesterday there's not one single party that voted as a block even the most conservative star even the most progressive socially progressive parties had at least one or two scenarios that voted against and it's also very graphic on the about it so the north of argentina is usually the more conservative nars than was really just region and all the senators from those provinces voted against the bill whereas in the center and the south of the country they what it's for the legalized legalization and you see it briefly now one of the implications of this vote for women who still want to go ahead with abortion you
4:06 pm
mentioned a half million women but you know estimated to have abortions can they do it illegally leave their health and face prosecution or will they just go abroad. no i mean they'll continue doing the like they've been doing it for all these years a half a million women are still undergoing legal abortion in argentina and there's no real eternity of our. closest country that has legalized abortion. they have legalized is since two thousand and twelve but a lot of the women that and then go abortion are very poor soul of their possibilities of going abroad and getting an abortion done somewhere else are very low for them so they'll probably continue doing it you legally it's very interesting because they are washington readies also a class issue there are a lot of private hospitals that are known to it's widely known that private hospitals perform abortions those abortions are only accessible to woman that kind
4:07 pm
of support it on the other hand the woman that don't have the financial means to pay for this procedure is in a private hospital under god in secure and unsafe conditions that are causing a lot of deaths over the past few years writing. this i psec you very much for that life update from there. well. with me this is you know i have religious and ethics correspondent. also from welcome us into we have to see if it is a whole lot of questions religion politics class let me begin by asking you as you know the country as they divided is this divide in your perspective based on religious than ethical grounds or political well i think both i think that there is a very strong sense of you know political division i mean clearly this cuts right along the line of conservatism and progressivism on the other hand it is true that
4:08 pm
there is a lot of cross police station so that is to say there are a lot of people that belong to what would be the center right that are mostly liberals or near liberals that basically have a proportion or a pro-choice position while you have people on the left that actually remember the history of argentinean which thirty thousand people disappeared many of them pregnant women those babies actually were never returned and that actually also defined a bit the way in which argentine society thinks about fetuses and pregnancy so i think it's a very complicated topic stree what do you think it's worthwhile pointing out is that by and large to one side and to the other there's been sort of a an agreement i mean a base agreement in the conversation that this is something that is in nobody's benefit that this is not something i mean that has to do with allowing or not allowing abortion this is a law that has to do or this discussion was about what happens with their organs that are already taking place those things are not going to go away and most certainly i mean what just happened will if anything rick night the debate as to
4:09 pm
what happens with the organs that are already happening absolutely and then all of this involved is a we heard figures about two hundred fifty full women die every year going through illegal abortions but now coming back to this is a look at the division. does also the homeland of pope francis of the catholic church they had quite a critical role in this campaign to get a report suggested a majority of the means would. supported this legalization of. many fears are very interesting one of them half of the women and half of the women senators that voted voted actually against the bill and so voted against choice there thing that is really quite curious is that the majority of voters against it came from very deeply got fairly provinces in the north while the south tended to be more progressive i think that what is important to point out is that while the church and evan jellicoe groups very importantly do have a lot of fluence the conversation indeed shifted in their reaction that most of the
4:10 pm
argentine community seems to be understanding it to go which is this has to be put on the table we cannot simply say that this is illegal and then put this question to rest this no longer works so there's still a lot of room for discussion masinga thank you very much for sharing your perspective on this very divisive issue of abortion in argentina. now the gaza has ministry says israeli airstrikes have killed a pregnant woman and her young daughter in the gaza strip when hamas fight it was oh it's a kid the israeli army launched the attacks after hamas militants five more than one hundred eighty rockets into israel injuring at least four israelis the security situation the vision has been tense since march when palestinians began staging reeking to test along the gaza israeli border israel has want hamas against the escalation. and for the very latest i'm joined now by a middle east correspondent on the crema in judaism john what's the latest you can
4:11 pm
tell us about this incident. well the situation seems to have quieted down in the past hour or so but it's not yet clear where this is going. we've seen such as collations in the past month or so already several times so it's always said i don't have an interest to take it any further but i think only the next hour will tell according to the israeli army about a hundred and eighty protect us were fired from gaza into southern israel. about thirty of them were intercepted by the israeli defense system. and these are in the army says they have targeted over one hundred fifty sites and locations in the gaza strip since yesterday three people there in the gaza strip where killed according to house officials and people on both sides. tony has just been in the palestinian territories before i talk to her again let's look at a report which shows the situation for the people in gaza since the budget cuts for

4:13 pm
a ninety million dollars shortfall in its emergency fund which supports food distribution mental health and cash for work programs we're trying the best we can to prioritize the food distribution and that means we have to borrow some money and do less of the other two programs a number of our stock staff roughly a thousand staff are affected by this some of them will continue full time their job some of them will have to move to part time so that we can fit into the budget the food distribution and how must control gaza the crisis over the agency which provides services normally supplied by state comes amid a tense political situation as ceasefire between hamas and israel remains elusive people here are very that the cuts in u.s. funding are only the beginning of a wider come pain to take the refugee issue off the agenda israel and the us accuse the un organization of perpetuating the refugee problem but people here say that
4:14 pm
without the little support they get the situation would be even worse. at the distribution center at the refugee camp people come for their basic items. with the gaza strip seared off by israel and egypt over eighty percent of the population are dependent on aid one way or another. every three months imagine how much in the picks up his family's ration of oil lentils drawer and other items he's a tailor but hardly finds work is a little agency has reduced its own stuff so what will happen to people like me if our coupons are cut even slightly it will hurt. them today i'm getting seven bags but if they cut it by half the quantity will not be enough. it will never be enough the food. like for him and his fellow two million gazans remains deeply uncertain. telling your report gives us
4:15 pm

4:17 pm
a move china won't like germany's government once brought a veto powers when investors from outside europe buy into local companies starting at fifteen percent stakes instead of the current twenty five. the new regulations come after berlin effectively blocked a chinese company from buying a twenty percent share in electricity grid operator fifty hurts chinese trade representatives claim they're being singled out however the sudden surge in chinese purchases is striking while the volume of chinese transactions in germany has comparably low in the years before twenty sixteen it's accelerated quickly since then a sudden surge to twelve point six billion dollars in twenty sixteen was followed by a new peak of thirteen point seven billion dollars in twenty seventeen. and it's not only the size of the investments that are ringing alarm bells in berlin. many of
4:18 pm
them are focused on certain sectors. those ten key industrial sectors president z. wants china to become world leader in the acquisition of robot manufacture a cooker for four and a half billion euros last year falls into that category. and this year lee shoe food c.e.o. of chinese carmakers sheely acquired ten percent in germany. now germany is slamming on the brakes by planning tighter scrutiny of foreign investments but german industry representatives fear the government stricter controls could deter chinese investors and that's not necessarily good news after all investors also provide capital and create jobs. now a twelve year wait is over earlier today ikea the world's largest furniture retailer opened its doors in india in the southern city of heider about now it's an outsized project the thirty seven thousand square meter showroom is expected to

4:21 pm
instance ikea has introduced more color in its products introduced mattresses it's introduced dhaka so far fabrics because there's a lot of dough to dust in india it's also come up with alternatives to lead them because the cult is the will ship of india and i think most importantly ikea has really kept in mind that india you know with its abundant supply of cheap labor really has a kind of do it for me culture of that and do it for sales and and so i can has a full in-house team of people to help customers actually assemble the french and now india has been somewhat of a tough turf for western companies how is. trying to to. not share their fate. well it's interesting i mean you're right it is is india sort of india is a tough market to crack you know ikea did try to enter india earlier if you remember back in two thousand and six but at the time it was foiled by very strict
