group the largest operator of siberian power plants dura pasta made headlines last year for his reported links to paul mann afford trumps former presidential campaign chair seventeen senior russian government officials and one state owned trading company have also been singled out the latest move comes in response to u.s. accusations russia meddled in the twenty sixteen us election its intervention in ukraine malicious cyber activity and its backing of syrian president bashar assad who the u.s. accuses of using chemical weapons against civilians the russian government calls the latest sanctions a mistake and has always denied meddling in any us affairs nobody has been tougher on russia than i have but it took months for trying to get tough on russia he was granted the power by the u.s. congress last summer. but waited until last month to impose sanctions the white house escalated its response weeks later joining nearly two dozen other countries
5:11 am
expelling dozens of russian diplomats and closing a russian consulate in seattle the actions were a collective international response to the recent poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter in britain still when asked this week if putin was a friend or foe trump replied we'll find out i'll let you know. i mean it will be a time when i'll let you know you know to find out very quickly the white house says despite the new sanctions against russia donald trump has invited vladimir putin for a meeting here in the united states time and date still to be determined kimberly helped get al-jazeera at the white house seriously media is reporting government forces have launched a ground offensive in the last rebel held area of eastern huta at least forty people have been killed in the bombing of duma where the last rebel group jason a slam is holding out russia and the syrian government have been pushing for

5:13 am
matter it's close enough to being one between china and the united states was enough to send the dow tumbling yet again the third time this week that followed president trump's threat to escalate the dispute even further with an additional one hundred billion in tariffs against china on top of fifty billion already proposed china is angry it's made it clear it will fight the us at any cost. we feel the u.s. action is extremely unreasonable the u.s. is seriously misjudged the situation and taking an exceedingly wrong action the result of this kind of behavior is like picking up a piece of stone and smashing your own foot with it even if the threatened tariffs don't become a reality the rhetoric has left a market volatility in its wake on friday at one point the dow dropped over seven hundred points the us president told a new york radio station the proposed tariffs could cause some pain but are needed to help us we've already lost a trade war i'm not saying there won't be
5:14 am
a little pain but the market's gone up forty percent forty two percent so we might lose a little bit of it but would have a much stronger country what to a finish and that's what i'm all about the trumpet ministration has various officials giving off different signals just on friday the director of the national economic council said this was not a trade war and there's still plenty of time to negotiate with china before the tariffs go into effect but on the very same day the treasury secretary. ari said the terror of threat could lead to a trade war it's that kind of uncertainty that left the markets tumbling and the white house struggling to defend its actions we know that there could be some fluctuation but at the same time the president has said enough is enough china has to change this illegal and unfair practices. the markets are now closed for the week but nobody is clear where they or this trade dispute will lead roles on doe

5:18 am
a new government in power men jane will not let her out we need to fight injustice but the number of park supporters paled in comparison to the hundreds of thousands who regularly turned out for the candlelight protests president moon j in came to office on a liberal agenda promising to stamp out corruption in a statement his spokesman said they say history not remembered repeats itself we will not forget today kathy novak al jazeera soul. all twelve and a half thousand kilometers away in south africa another former president faced courts accused of corruption jacob zuma on sixteen charges including fraud and money laundering over an arms deal catherine soy has that story from. him. this is a significant moment in south africa's history for the first time a former head of state is in the dock facing corruption charges jacob zuma looked subdued as a judge adjourned the beginning of his trial to june to give lawyers time to
5:19 am
prepare basement questions through the eighth of june twenty eighth. outside the courtroom he supporters we had when he came on stage he said the court proceedings had been politically instigated. probably in two thousand and five i was in this same court facing the same charges i've never heard of anyone having charges dropped then reinstated the judge dropped the case because if the matter had been politicized. zoomers african national congress party has kept its distance unlike in his previous scandals but party members arrived at court dressed in a in syria despite warnings not to from party headquarters supporters of come from across this region. which is a stronghold of the former president they say maybe even in a bin and. five and that it was done by him till the very end
5:20 am
he's accused of receiving bribes to use his influence in the a.n.c. in favor of a french arms company and later to protect the company from investigations. this group in fighter jets filmed a few years ago were part of the deal some legal and political analysts say that the state has enough evidence to guarantee a conviction one must remember that is former financial adviser. shaykh was in fact convicted of corrupting him the state at that time showing four instances in which it said it could prove and did prove that zuma had circumvented his duties under the constitution by doing favors for shake and his business interests as a consequence of being on what the state termed as a sort of corrupt retainer this is a matter that has divided south africans but many of them including zuma supporters say they are tired of waiting for so long for answers they hoped they would have to
5:21 am
wait many more years to get by ticked no matter what that verdict is catherine saw al-jazeera dampen or donald trump is moving to end a practice known as catch and release policy allows immigrants caught in the u.s. without proper documents to be released while their immigration cases are heard in court trump is also asking the defense department for a list of military facilities where detained undocumented immigrants could be held alan fischer has more from washington. donald trump has been talking about catch and release for a very long time in fact since the election campaign what is it well it is the policy of catching illegal immigrants as they come across the border undocumented migrants is another phrase that people use there held by border patrol or immigration officials their names are taken and then they're released until they get a date for their immigration hearing now donald trump has criticized this law in fact in a tweet just a couple of days ago he called it
5:22 am
a dangerous liberal democratic war that he wanted to change and actually dates back to when george w. bush was in the white house but no donald trump has issued a memorandum to say there must be norm or catch and release now add that to the fact that the department of justice has sent out a memo on friday to see that they want a zero tolerance approach to illegal immigration law longer will people because of phone back across the border but they will face the full might of the american legal system for essentially breaking the law by crossing the border illegally and the fact that we know that the white house is sending a number of national guard troops to the border particularly because of this caravan that is heading through central america through mexico towards the border at the moment but generally to help with border security this is donald trump delivering on election promises to get tough on the border and get tough with the issue of illegal immigration. colombia's government is starting to register all of
5:23 am
the venezuelans who come in illegally the u.n. is helping with the ambitious project which it is hoped will help the massive number of people who fled venezuela's economic meltdown asunder reports from the border city of cocoa tar. alison his family have been living in colombia for three months illegally a lack of medicine and food for their three year old daughter rosie left him no choice but to leave venezuela when they heard the colombian government was registering migrants in the country without the threat of the court taishan they wanted to be first in line. with orders an opportunity hoping it will bring his benefit in the future they asked for all their personal information and about her health condition and of the baby in particular massive numbers of desperate venezuelans have arrived in the past year. the say they could number more than half a million but there's no exact figure that's why it launched the registration look
5:24 am
at the images give me the money them because we want to know how many migrants there are and in what condition so we can measure what services we can offer an estimate costs because it's very expensive the basics are health and education services so the colombian government has set up more than five hundred registration points like this one across the country they will operate for the next two months this is a major humanitarian emergency especially for a country that has never before had to deal with such a massive influx of migrants the united nations is assisting in says colombia can't be left alone to deal with the exodus now you've got all this you know the arrival of the venezuelan population is a regional issue it's not only colombian so it's time to start a more coordinated effort across latin america and hopefully this can be the first step the colombian police and soldiers have been the ploy to support the efforts. oh those being counted include mothers with small children some of the women are
5:25 am
pregnant with no money for a room many sleep on the street you know. we are all just here hoping to work to help ourselves and those back home hopefully this will help formalize our situation i'm pregnant she's got five children they're all hungry and cold at night the colombian government has made it more difficult for being this way to cross the border but with no end in sight to the troubles in the country stemming the flow is just one challenge for these and the people caught up in the crisis alison there. former first lady grace mugabe is accusing the miners of invading her farms to illegally dig for gold they in turn are accusing her of defamation and say the land was stolen it's one of a number of battles she's facing since her husband was forced from power late last year i don't want us to report from. this is grace my god in my story just

5:31 am
showing. the arm forgiven a witness documentary on al-jazeera my old team ask. is not. one of the really special things about working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else would get what it is you know it's very tendency to believe but the good because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe.
5:32 am
and again you're watching al-jazeera reminder of our top stories this hour the israeli army has killed at least eight palestinian protesters and injured more than thirteen hundred in a second week of demonstrations along the gaza border. for brazilian president luis inacio lula da silva is expected to hand himself into police and soon as saturday that's after missing an early a deadline he's in a trade union building in sao paolo where supporters have been rallying outside who has been ordered to start a jail sentence for corruption. the u.s. a slap new sanctions on some of president vladimir putin's key allies the white house kohl's says the penalties are in response to what he calls russia's damaging activities. and more on our top story and while the demonstrations in gaza are inspiring more people to come out and protest is also reminding palestinians of
5:33 am
previous struggles homage and doom reports in the occupied west bank in gaza palestinian demonstrators did what they could to frustrate israeli security forces . burning tires to obscure the view of soldiers using mirrors in an attempt to blind snipers tactics that reminded many of an earlier era of resistance but i'm so proud of the fact that now all palestinian groups including chemistry had thought that if anybody i don't think this up a lot of peaceful nonviolent resistance which has proven to be the most effective way of dealing with patients with dealing with those that are a little bit ashamed of the palestinian people and this definitively brings us back to thirty principles self-reliance and for going to sion and defiance of. these exactly what are the three principles that govern the feds into fatah and that led to changing the balance of power. in the first intifada which began in december one
5:34 am
thousand nine hundred seven marked the first time the palestinians from all parts of society began such an intense resistance to israeli occupation. in the beginning boys threw rocks and people marched later fighters began attacking israeli soldiers and military targets it ended in one thousand nine hundred three and by the time it was over more than one thousand one hundred people had died tires were also burned in the occupied west bank just outside the illegal israeli settlement of bethel where a small crowd of palestinian protesters gathered. throughout the day it was a game of cat and mouse that has become almost a regular occurrence on fridays after prayer incoming tear gas from israeli security forces would force them to run only to return a short time later hurling rocks despite calls by palestinian political factions for residents of the occupied west bank to come out and protest today attendance at the demonstrations was relatively low which really underscores a growing like
5:35 am
a faith and palestinian political leadership activists say palestinian officials need more than ever to build trust one of the mean things is just like to show them . met honestly away from the situation to tell exactly the people what how we can go out of the situation to see to see people want to see an end to twenty five years of useless. but picnic negotiations that led us to the situation while officials may be disappointed at the dearth of demonstrators outside gaza they also feel their message this time will resonate with the international community what helps us a lot is the social media that ability of young palestinians to use social media and transmit to the world. actually. objectivity ality on the ground the fact that israel is a ruthlessly shooting civilians shooting peaceful demonstrators this is unacceptable the expectations are high the great march of return will inspire more unity for the
5:36 am
moment at least there is a small simlins of hope that seems to be rising above the usual political divisions mohammed atta the mullah in the occupied west bank the former cattle and lead a cost put him on is calling for a dialogue with the spanish government after his release on bail in germany which the man was detained last week when he crossed the border from denmark judges refused to extradite him though on the rebellion charge he faces in spain because that is not a crime in germany because still be sent back on the lesser charge of misusing public funds raised him on is also wanted for his role in the illegal referendum for catalonia secession from spain donna cain has more from outside the prison in northern germany. colors pushed a more surprised everyone by taking a considerable time to actually obtain his freedom to walk out to address the waiting media we have been led to believe it would be at some point early in the morning after he would have posted the bail of seventy five thousand euros and
5:37 am
agreed to meet the stringent conditions that had been placed on the his release from incarceration here at the prison in. but finally once he had come complied with all the formalities and did emerge from the prison doors and when he did so the message he came across to the media with was one of the need for dialogue to resolve this situation. the time for dialogue has arrived we are demanding that daily from the last that she hears and we only received a violent and a representative response no seeing the fall of that response it's time to do politics so carlos has managed to get himself released from the confines of this prison in time where he spent much of the past two weeks since his arrest he says now is the time for political dialogue to try to resolve the crisis
5:38 am
and indeed the german government has sent that there needs to be a regional government created in catalonia to help resolve the crisis but for the moment at least the direct future of mr bridger himself well that's in his hands but it is by no means certain that in getting out of this prison it doesn't mean he might still not end up in a spanish prison sometime soon. our surge in violent crimes on london's streets is piling pressure on political leaders and police to taint teenagers were fatally shot and another was stabbed in the north east of the city on monday night london's murder rate in february and in march was higher than new york's for the first time in modern history and more killings this week have taken the total to fifty most of the stabbings police and community leaders have held an emergency meeting and an extra two hundred officers will be put on patrol. we have not lost control of the
5:39 am
street so i can understand why some people are very worried at the moment. and particularly in some areas of london we've had some ghastly homicides as you know a petition in the last few days including those and really young people that is bound to be very frightened. a group of revenge of muslims fleeing violence in myanmar have been rescued by an indonesian fishing boat off the western coast of our province five people were found but the survivors say at least five others died hundreds of thousands of ranger have left me en masse since last year. elsewhere refugees including children have been held for years at a detention center in indonesia in borneo and the state of arson reports from up on there's little chance they'll be freed soon. they have been shouting for freedom every day for the past eighty days but no one can hear them except for
5:40 am
a few guards. these refugees are mostly ethnic us our who fled persecution in afghanistan now they are locked up on the island of borneo far away from the capital jack after the youngest. was detained when he was twelve now he's fourteen years old. the whole time it's been very difficult not only me but everyone is suffering from depression what once we tried to escape but one man fell from the high wall and broke his leg no one is failing. indonesia has not signed the un convention for refugees but the government decided fifteen months ago that refugees should be given proper accommodation while waiting for resettlement was still more than one thousand refugees are locked up without a verdict or a release date most of them for more than four years of course we expected when we scare from the priests accused and from the be here to inform the discrimination
5:41 am
from our country we start a similar and we come and here we are sifting not to log behind. what. the un commission for refugees the u.n. h.c.r. has recently told refugees in indonesia their chances of resettlement are close to zero strangely i do united states and europe have all but closed their borders and not allowed to work or to go to school what's been happening inside this attention center is a cry for freedom far away from the public eye. refugees locked up and treated as prisoners with no country willing to accept them there's more and more pressure on them to go back to the country they fled from in the first place. what unfortunate refugees in balloch papam have taken the offer of two thousand u.s. dollars from i.o.m. the international organization for migration to return to afghanistan money provided by the australian government. those who understand that it might be best
5:42 am
for them to go home we want to make it easy for them and we also wanted some incentive or whether it's could be seen as a center but it really is for something it's money for them to get started many of them have sold everything before they left the jets will be able to go back to the country that's basically nothing well they they make that determination like most other refugees sixty year olds russell that the sas returning to afghanistan is not an option and they're over there for they're the ones that are bomb blasts nearly every day only recently many people were killed in sokolow we have nowhere else to go we sought shelter with the international organization for migration and the u.n.h.c.r. we have nowhere else to go. the indonesian government says it's urging the local government to provide accommodation so to refugees can be released from detention but several groups and i looked up on with a sunni muslim population are free fused to accept the mostly shia refugees citing
5:43 am
