share. in speaking to palestinian victims taking the sheep to pasture has become a daily gamble for every young his village i know is surrounded by several illegal jewish settlements up there under. and more and more often settlers come down. in one week he came twice the first time i was alone and there were eighteen of them i told one of them that i had called the police but they didn't go away my main worry was the sheep then six more attacked me and the others headed towards the sheep still some i couldn't do anything alone. zuffa i was wounded in the head and says he lost a third of his life stock this video shot by the organization rabbis for human rights shows the second attack a few days later about twenty settlers many must seem throwing stones at
palestinians with israeli soldiers standing by. the u.n. says the weekly average of settler attacks has increased by fifty percent since the beginning of the year these are not isolated incidents such attacks happen a bit all over the occupied west bank and there's very little people can do simply because israel is in charge of the security in about eighty percent of the palestinian territory and palestinian security forces are not allowed to operate in those areas the village of zeph it is in the so-called area b. which means that palestinians have only civilian control security matters are indeed hands of the occupying forces bible. the army itself attacks palestinians with tear gas and rubber bullets even when it's the settlers who are provoking and the palestinians are trying to protect the villages no settler is ever detained only palestinians legal proceedings rarely reach

bank. the london offices of cambridge analytic are being searched as part of an investigation into the alleged misuse of private information of millions of facebook users the raid by the u.k.'s data watched all comes after a high court judge for hit a sore point for the company's offices last week a whistleblower claim the firm harvested private data from fifteen million facebook profiles information was allegedly used to support all trump's two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential campaign some companies are now distancing themselves from facebook following the revelations of that major leak the user data must lead at the facebook pages for space x. and tesla companies after he was dared to do so on twitter other companies have followed suit including web giant mozilla and german bank commerzbank it's the latest fallout rather from the scandal that has seen facebook stock tumble amid an online movement to delete personal accounts the company is planning a closed door staff meeting. as
a corporate branding specialist he says there are still a lot of questions facebook needs to answer. i don't think many people are naive to think that everything's safe and no one's looking at you the very nature of how we do it the way that we want personalized services the growth of ai all of that means exactly that that there's more information out there for people and most of us are often willing to give it its when we're juked into giving the information as exactly what happened here with this academic app that we're put was put out and go to the hunt three hundred thousand people submit their data that's actually a con and we know there's a lot of bad people out there so the job facebook has is to make sure those people don't get access to my data and that's where they failed so here's the big question i've got to ask right there either incompetent because they didn't know it happened and it was a toll calamity or they knew about it or are aware of it and that makes them complicit we're only going to see more and more information we want detail we will understand step by step what happened here where else has it happened other other examples of this so we're we want to get to the real deep details of this we want
to get zuckerberg in a seat so he can testify about what's happened here and give us all the detail we're going to ask and i think what you're going to see is a seismic shift in people's attitudes and behavior when this case comes to come to comes to the hill and he explains what the hell happened. cambridge and a lot of his influence may have spread further than just the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election candidates in that coming mexican presidential election are denying reports they also hired the u.k. company john heilemann has more from mexico city. cambridge journalists could told on the cover of quarters that it was working in mexico what we do know is that the company did set up shop here and it was looking for a presidential candidate that it could work with now all of the major candidates said that they had nothing to do with the company but this is still a timely wakeup call for mexico and that's because it's heading into the biggest elections in its history a move in sixty percent of the population over the age of six is now online making
the potential targets for influencing there and it's slowly going on in the massif the biggest election where the most young people are going to vote and wherever the most votes connected many will be in better ways of using new technology and almost all of my facebook and a lot going to depend on how effective a strategy in influencing them as much make news is voting him a sheet depending on when the last is that they hear us the country's already seen some do you b.s. online and tech practices for example since two thousand and twelve experts have noticed that when there's a hash tag on twitter that's in particular being criticizing the government then other accounts have sprung up bringing out hundreds of tweets per minute to dilute or to the rail that protesting hash tag they've been cool those accounts penya bots named after the country's president it also emerged last year that the government has a book surveillance technology that was then used to spy on human rights lawyers activists
and journalists but the focus isn't just going to be on mexico this year there's elections coming up across latin america including brazil colombia and venezuela and there's going to be a lot of our eyes on the online battle for the electorate. there are violent clashes between police and protesters in catalonia after spain's top court detained five separate leaders for their role in last year's independence bit i was just a tonsil keep demonstrators away from the federal government offices in barcelona comes after the court's decision to prosecute thirteen he counted on separatists for rebellion and also issued international arrest warrants for six of those leaders including former regional president pushed him off he was in exile in brussels. rescuers in western australia have been able to get just five whales out of a pot of one hundred fifty that's stranded back out into deeper water a sixth the whale that initially survived had to be euthanized after it beach
