state of florida to remember seventeen students who were killed during a school shooting there or wednesday it's not that the f.b.i. had a prior warning about the shooting suspect nicholas cruz also several rather poser has become south africa's new president pushing a message of clean government i think cruciferous the trade union leader turned a multimillionaire replaces jacob zuma who's years in power tainted by multiple corruption scandals thirty years parliament is planning to meet on friday as it looks to replace the prime minister who suddenly resigned. as announcement follows a violent unrest that's threatened the ruling party's hold on power. about to our top story now in the killing of seventeen students in florida this is america's eighteenth school shootings so far this year i was only in mid february. but as political hay ripples from washington d.c.
tougher gun laws seem as far away as. the sanctuary of a school punctured with screams. panicked children flee terrified parents wait we've seen this over and over and over again this is a couple of dozen at high school at universities and at an elementary school twenty children six adults slaughtered by an automatic weapon then as and now the flags come down and the politicians debate this uniquely american phenomena the core question they ask are guns really to blame president donald trump didn't even mention the word gun in his address not even once we are committed to working with state and local leaders to help secure our schools and tackle the difficult issue of mental health we have to have smart gun safety laws. and we cannot tolerate
a society and and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered the last time congress actually debated gun control after these six year olds were murdered in two thousand and twelve even with the parents of the dead children lobbying them the senate couldn't pass a bill requiring background checks to buy a gun and that proposal is hugely popular according to gallup ninety six percent of americans polled what background checks for all gun purchases seventy five percent want a thirty day waiting period to buy a gun and seventy percent want all guns to be registered with police so why does the popular will not have an impact here on capitol hill well many lawmakers in rural areas are afraid of angering their constituents were guns are more prevalent and there's also the issue of campaign money the gun lobby the national rifle association is very powerful if you add up the money it gives to candidates running
ads or lobbying they have contributed more than two hundred three million dollars for elections dating back to nine hundred ninety eight now that it has happened again a familiar refrain from people in power we owe it to every one of those kids trying outside their school yesterday you know those who never made it out of that they didn't make it out of a school a supposedly safe place that america clearly isn't anymore and there seems to be little political will to do anything to try and change that pedicle hane al-jazeera washington. the mexican government is trying to confirm if two dead bodies which have been discovered all those of two kidnapped federal police officers now the agents from a special unit went missing ten days ago from ninety eight states on the pacific coast they later peered in a you tube video surrounded by heavily armed masked men down home and possible from mexico city. the video first began circulating at the start of the week and it took
two federal agents on their knees and surrounded by armed men they were forced to read a statement made up of that he's ations about the treatment of people by mexican security forces. actions like dropping kidnapping and disappearing people with respect to their women or children in the video is really shocking image scary because it's rare for federal agents to be treated like this on tape almost in a way that's reminiscent of terrorist propaganda in part the statement the agents were forced to say that the cartel respected the as the authorities and that's why they were still alive but now it seems that the governing could have changed their mind the attorney general's office has released a statement saying the remains have been found that could possibly be the agents and that they're know for sure within three to five days now the gunmen are identified in the video but ninety the steak with the two agents were kidnapped is
in the control of the new generation cartel it's going to be one of the most powerful in mexico and it's been very militant against authorities in its territory in two thousand and fifteen its members shot down an army helicopter killing ten soldiers this is more bad news for the government violence has risen to record levels even higher than what was considered the worst period of the drug war and events like this only reinforce the impression of authorities failing to take control. in central america a woman in el salvador who's been sentenced to thirty s. and p. . having an abortion has been released after a supreme court ruling theodora delcarmen vasquez was convicted in two thousand and eight on charges of aggravated homicide but she maintains health issues had caused a stillbirth the top court has now ruled there's no evidence to prove our squares took any specific action to abort her pregnancy salvatore's one of four latin

longer subject to their regulations but also means that you won't be able to you know you miss out on a chunk of the audience that you're after which is the reason why i got a lot of com license in the first place i would imagine that it wanted to you know get access to all of our o. diaspora and they won't be able to do that unless of course they reapply for a license at some point. to five children in the middle east are living in a conflict zone according to a report by save the children there warned of the more dangerous places in the region is the occupied west bank where last year fourteen were killed but always a thousand injured belet smith has more from ramallah. it's hard to concentrate in class when a chunk of your skull has been blown away by a rubber coated bullet. mohammed to me was shot in december by an israeli soldier during protests in the occupied west bank he's fifteen years old. before the injury

differently i saw gary coleman go in various life he was a one son difference he was one shoulder to if he was one that was going on different holidays and different tours sets him apart emerging with fire with all the young people if you ask me i would say that jerry will have suffered abuse at the hands of barry we've also spoken to more than one witness with even more direct knowledge because it's so sensitive an actor is reading one man's words on a few occasions got he was in the same bad battery would abuse one of course then turn over and then abuse ilda you are absolutely certain that gary speed was appeased by the now hundred percent well mine on point nine percent because you literally both in the bed at the same time. you don't actually witness sidewise but basically the same process is happening to the other person in the trial this just ended gary speed was named as one of four players coached by been l. have died our investigation has revealed one of them mark hazel dein was
a former teammate of gary speed he also committed suicide two other players died off to troubled lives from problems with drink and drugs but now is due to be sentenced on multiple counts of sexual abuse later this month deborah davis al-jazeera london. and you can see debra davis's full report football's walls of silence on friday at twelve g.m.t. and then again on saturday. g.m.t. and twenty g.m.t. here on al-jazeera and also on our website at al-jazeera dot com. the berlin film festival road has a showcase of hollywood blockbusters and european movies opens on thursday with this year's program emphasizing cultural diversity it's also expected the me two campaign will be highlighting sexual harassment in the film world from berlin

highlighted the prevalence of sexual harassment against women in the film industry there will be really special programs offered me too but also about diversity we think said this cultural events but not only culturally rents are a sublight from now to discuss this and we are in the middle of sis's question one of the draws of this festival has always been its combination of hollywood style glamour with european art house movies and as a showcase for independent filmmaking is to attract attention to the causes they hold dear as this festival there is no overwhelming favorite to claim the top prizes and so many of the people trading these red carpets have high hopes dominic al-jazeera.
