an island now has a booming film industry rules remain. the begin at the united nations where rival russian and u.s. proposals on investigating chemical weapons use in syria of both failed to pass russia wanted to create a new inquiry into the attacks but the vote fell short of the minimum required for a resolution to pass moscow only a vetoed a competing u.s. attempt to establish an investigation which would have had the power to attribute blame for chemical weapons attacks in syria the us ambassador nikki haley accused russia of serving the interests of its ally president bashar assad over the syrian people there were really only two key differences between our draft and russians but those differences speak volumes. first russia wanted to give
themselves the chance to approve the investigators who were chosen for the task and second russia wanted to have the security council assess the findings of any investigation before any report was released does any of that sound independent or impartial. so russia's proposal wasn't about an independent impartial investigation at all it was all about protecting the assad regime. you have already appointed the guilty party before the investigation you do not need the investigation you do not want to hear anything you do not want to hear that no traces of a chemical attack was found in duma you've simply been looking for a pretext all this time a mike hanna is live for us at the united nations now what are we going to see happen in terms of an inquiry into events in duma. well
what is happening is that the fact finding mission of the international chemical weapons watchdog has already started investigating that alleged attack in syria its inspectors will be on the way but and this is a very important but the o.p.c. w. its fact finding mission has the power to decide whether or not a chemical attack took place however it does not have a mandate to apportion responsibility to identify the perpetrators this in the first resolution of the day is what the us attempted to do to create an investigative medic mechanism that had the power to both investigate and identify the russians brought a resolution saying the same thing with two important differences that it would appoint the members of the commission which the opponents of argued would not make it independent and secondly that it would be the security council who would apportion blame not the body itself laying open once again ongoing argument within
this council the third resolution brought in the course of the day and apparently non-controversial one in support of the chemical weapons watchdog that failed to get the nine votes as well many members believing that it was a superfluous photo because the o.p.c. w. was already at work its inspectors will be on their way to investigate what happened in syria this past week and so we saw today the usual war of words between russia and the u.s. at the security council this time over the terms of an investigation into chemical weapons use in syria what are you now hearing about the possibility of a unilateral u.s. action in syria. well there's been no talk at the united nations apart from something the us ambassador said in the course of the discussions the past twenty four hours saying that the u.s.
was going to take action whether or not the security council managed to get some kind of resolution through that is a suspicion that the u.s. was waiting for this resolution waiting for the establishment of a viable independent investigative mechanism that as not happened also it must be pointed out too that it's not necessarily just the u.s. that's contemplating unilateral action old though we've heard the u.s. president say that he will be deciding within twenty four to forty eight hours with the to do so also allies of the u.s. the united kingdom france we've seen intense discussion between the representatives here at the united nations in the past few days so that is the possibility now the security council has clearly failed in its attempt to get some kind of unity on the issue that is the possibility that the only option left on the table is some kind of unilateral action by the u.s. alone or together with its traditional allies thank you very much mike hanna at the
united nations. has said he's sorry about the privacy data breach at facebook and social media c.e.o. still facing questions a congressional hearing on capitol hill he said the breach was his fault and the company needed to do better over the next two days ago but will be questioned in detail about the cambridge analytical scandal and russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election. all the senators were preparing to take a break when zuckerberg suggested they keep going but he might have regretted that because he was sharing the terms of service between facebook and cambridge analytic and they directly contradict what he's been saying about selling data i want to show you the terms of service that alexander colgan provided to facebook
and note for you that in fact facebook was on notice that he could sell that user information have you seen these terms of service before i have not who in facebook was responsible for seeing those terms of service that put you on notice that that information could be sold senator our our preview team would be responsible for that has anyone been fired on that app review review team. the senator not because of this. it was also a simple question from senator dick durban that reinforce the impact of having one's privacy breached mr berg would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night. i.
know. if you message to anybody this week would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged. a senator no i would probably not choose to do that publicly here i think that might be what this is all about your right to privacy the limits of your right to privacy and how much you give away in modern america in the name of quote connecting people around the world the question basically of what information facebook's collecting who they're sending it to and whether they were asking me in advance my permission to do that. an investor has been monitoring events on capitol hill for us and them not isn't a bad looking rather uncomfortable in the clips that we missing that alan how much of a grilling did he get today. probably sound a few awkward moments that durbin as a lawyer could you tell from the way he asked those questions and he had a fairly pointed exchange with ted cruz the republican senator from texas many
people remember that name because he ran for president of course back in twenty sixteen and the kids face book of bias that was a claim rejected by much as i said that simply wasn't the case but mark zuckerberg has spent the weekend here in washington d.c. preparing for this hearing and you could tell for a man who normally likes to dress in tee shirts he's polished and so was his performance it's all about appearing to try saying saudi so many times and also making the point as he's done many times that facebook started as a small enterprise in his dorm room at harvard we've certainly heard that a few times and to see that things are definitely going to change but a number of senators made the point look you may have the talent to make things change but are you going to do it and he said yes the he would and they talked about the potential of bringing in european style privacy legislation in the united states he made the point the sensibilities here are slightly different which is
perhaps true but it's certainly something they could look at and then there was a senator who said look you've apologized for data breaches or problems in the past at least three times to his counting is this the latest in the apology tour really to stop or from the apology tour mark zuckerberg said that wasn't the case and that he wanted to make things better now the reason he's saying that he wants to make things better is that facebook and other tech companies which much rather self regulate themselves and make the changes themselves rather than be put in the position by senators and members of congress that they have to make the. changes because they have decided to legislate for that so that's why this is all a boat and why. performance isn't being watched just by eighty seven million facebook users around the world or for the data breach of the two billion people around the world who use facebook on a regular basis but by titans of the tech industry in the united states who are
wondering if his performance will in any way to flatten them and be reflected at the end of this with the threat of legislation and did we learn anything new. russian collusion and the way cambridge analytically used that facebook data to try and sway they says. well two things i would point to as we know cambridge analytical provided the information that they harvested from facebook to donald trump's presidential election campaign they also supplied the leave it campaign in the e.u. referendum in the united kingdom what we've found is that mark zuckerberg and facebook are no looking at potential russian links to cambridge analytical he was asked specifically is there the possibility that this information could be stored somewhere and russia and he said that is a possibility that they were investigating and one other big thing that we found out is that facebook cooperating with special counsel robert miller's office you'll
remember that he was appointed to look into possible collusion between the trump campaign and the russians that inquiry is still ongoing mark zuckerberg said a number of people at facebook had been interviewed or certainly seem to suggest that there was a subpoena issued as far as he was aware but they are certainly cooperating with robert miller's office something that had been rumored for a while we got confirmation under questioning from mountains so coburg that that was actually happening thank you very much and cat capitol hill alan fair share. in and out is there i still think on the whole and. yet i see. israel confirms a video showing soldiers celebrating after shooting a palestinian is authentic. and president trump attacks the f.b.i. for writing his lawyers office in connection with a controversial payment to a porn film.
our records have been broken of the last day or so for heat in april in australia there are still closed trucking through the bite so you can see is not much of a land the record heat still exists is going to i think decline a little bit but was still a potential for thirty three in adelaide on wednesday and we heading towards the thirty marks too in a city in melbourne and in sydney it's the written mass but all that's been taken away from post twenty three degrees and not used so dragging through the bite is part of a system that will still produce a little bit of rain i think even during wednesday's most fits over the water but it is trying to hit tasmania much just catch the south of victoria next essay and look at the big change as the wind direction is twenty two to adelaide a draw for about ten degrees so that he weighs almost gone but not quite to be

al-jazeera selects hunted. up and back the top stories this hour rival proposals put forward by the united states and russia the chemical weapons attacks in syria have both failed to pass at the united nations security council. and a facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg has apologized for the social media giants data breach off the facing a grilling by senators of the misuse of uses data. our us president donald trump has praised his ties with catalyst saying they are working extremely well he and checked i mean ben had a funny have discussed the g.c.c.
crisis and combating terrorism at a meeting at the white house. report from washington. a crucial moment for the emir of qatar gimmes the man who just a few months ago publicly sided with his country's we gen y. balls but in the white house a clear sign of chopped being turned in march it's a great honor to have the emir of qatar with us it's a friend of mine knew it long before i entered the world of politics he's a great gentleman very popular in his country his people love him we're working on unity in that part of the middle east and i think it's working out very well the emir whose country is under blockade by saudi arabia the u.a.e. egypt and bahrain reiterated his commitment to build a strong relationship with washington our economy quarter ship is more than one
hundred twenty five billion and our aim and goal is to double it in the next coming years our military. cooperation is very solid very strong as everybody knows that the heart of fighting terrorism is from a low data base last year donald trump accused qatar alone of financing extremism now he says all of the gulf rivals have a part to play those countries are stopping the funding of terrorism that includes u.a.e. it includes saudi arabia it includes guitar and others who have now become a very big advocate appreciate. the events in syria also near the top of the edge and the u.s. administration is said to be seriously considering as riots following alleged chemical attacks by syrian army in duma on the outskirts of damascus the president and the emir one in blaming syria's for the alleged atrocity and seventy years of
war we can't tolerate with a war criminal record to tolerate was someone who could more than. half a million of his own people and this matter ship and the media but u.s. officials are concerned they own going d.c.c. crisis could undermine a coup dated bush to the syrian conflict still talk of trump leading a summit meeting to the almost year long diplomatic standoff but divisions among the rivals persist this is a significant moment for the emir of qatar months ago president trump singled out qatar accusing it of funding extremism now the emir of qatar is being commanded by the same president and top u.s. military commanders for fighting terrorism and promoting stability in the middle east. washington d.c. . the israeli military has confirmed that a video showing an army sniper shooting
a palestinian on the gaza border is authentic and that the soldiers involved will be disciplined palestinians say it shows gazans are being shot while posing no threat to soldiers but israel's defense minister has defended the action of the soldier saying the sniper deserves a medal and it's necessary ports from west jerusalem this israeli soldier has in his sights a palestinian apparently unarmed standing a few meters beyond the separation fence the divides israel from gaza just by being there this man is according to israel's military regulations a legitimate target for a sniper the army imposes a minimum one hundred metre buffer zone into garza's territory it's a regulation with no backing in international law the video seems to have been shared on social media by one of the. yes. we don't know who the victim is or what he was doing in the time before he was shot
israel's military says it happened in december the delight the snipers colleagues taken hitting that target doesn't change the fact that the israeli military won't consider the snipers actions unlawful but according to one human rights group. we haven't looked keep hearing that anybody who is coming close to there for defense will be shoot anybody respect he said they think in those demonstrations he's part of the hamas and they want to destroy israel everybody is a terrorist then what's rationed so totally you get to me so if the public debate here that is being conducted by the being led by the political level. showing the prettiest thing in the snow deserving the same rights as any other person. it's not surprising that they think they're in
a statement israel's military says the video depicts a short part of the response to a violent riot which included iraq hurling and attempts to sabotage the security fence and lasted about two hours during the riot means were taken in order to disperse it including verbal warnings and calls to halt using riot dispersal means and firing warning shots into the air after none of these were successful a single bullet was fired towards one of the palestinians who is suspected of organizing and leading this incident well he was a few meters from the fence he was hit in the lag and injured. i don't talk at shot that might earn a sniper high fives from his buddies has of course devastating real life consequences in the last two weeks in gaza more than fourteen hundred people have been injured by live fire from israeli snipers many will be crippled for life thirty one people have died. but it's mythologised era question recent. u.s. president donald trump has blasted the f.b.i. is right on his lawyers office as a disgrace and
a witch hunt it's been suggested the agents working on behalf of the special investigator robert muller is looking into alleged links between russia and the trunk campaign and that's raising fears trump may be looking to file a menace soon i think calling explains from washington. are white house handlers didn't even wait a second shouted reporters out of the oval office before the president could be tempted to answer questions donald trump stayed silent tuesday the night before was a different story they broke into the office going on a long rant about the raid on his lawyer michael cohen's hotel and office. why don't i just fire him over where i think it's a disgrace what's going on and we'll see what happens but i think it's really a sad situation where you look at what happened there many people have said you should fire him that is giving democrats i mean ition to call for new legislation this congress must respond forcefully and on
a bipartisan basis by reaffirming our belief that the president cannot fire special counsel without law without cause and by passing legislation to ensure that any attempts to remove robert muller. the unsuccessful so far republicans have only gone as far as to warn the president not to act but he is tweeting calling it a witch hunt and posting attorney client privilege is dead it actually isn't but that's what makes the read on cohen so surprising investigators and judges very rarely subpoena attorneys in order to get a judge to sign off the roll say that they have to have evidence that the attorney and his or her clients are actively committing a crime and it has to be signed off on at the highest levels of the justice department at the white house insistence the president has the power to fire the special counsel i know a number of individuals in the legal community and including at the department of
justice that he has the power to do so most experts believe that is not true the president can't directly fire special counsel robert mueller but he could try to force the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein to do it like if you won't try to replace him with someone who will say or he could replace attorney general jeff sessions with someone willing to close the special counsel's office that would provoke a constitutional crisis putting pressure on congress to step in potentially giving miller even more power and money to pursue his case that president trump clearly feels it's getting closer to him by the day. al-jazeera washington. argentina's congress has started public herring's on whether or not to legalize abortions president who is usually conservative on social issues as last time in the way of lawmakers choose to debate the legislation abortions a car in limited to when the mother's life or health is in danger or when the pregnancy is the result of rape to raise a bar reports from one is iris. it's
a debate that divides this country deeply and that's why on tuesday hundreds of people took to the streets to make their voices heard phil black of join an obvious says that abortion needs to be legalized in argentina so that women like her have some type of protection i am poor i hardly make an offer money to support my childhood i'm tired of seeing women living in shelters taking care of children they cannot support and the reason they have them is because there is no education we need a law that would guarantee sexual education that will assist women to get concert civs i will allow women to have an abortion if they don't want that child. abortion is illegal in argentina in most cases but the health ministry says that between three hundred and seventy and five hundred thousand clandestine abortions are carried out every year. thousands of women are hospitalized because of complications in the procedure some of them die there also are driscoll being
detained the hearings are going to be ongoing for over a month when i believe one thousand people will have the right to express their views on abortion the vote is expected to happen in june and it's going to be the first time in this country's history that congress will debate the legalization of abortion. but there are many who are not happy with the possibility of decriminalizing abortion in the country. they also took to the streets on tuesday. we want to save the mothers but also the babies all lives are important and that's why we're pro-life in argentina. we defend life not. the hearings include we now doctors journalists and doctors who are hoping abortion will be legalized in the country the. against it are members of the powerful catholic church and politicians among others the debate has already polarized
argentinean society and he will probably intensify in the months ahead. more than ireland has been walking the twentieth anniversary of the good friday agreement it ended decades of violence between pro irish catholics and pro british process sense but with the country still in political deadlock and the uncertainties of breck's it many say it's a time of mixed feelings on a b phillips reports from belfast the class of ninety eight told their reunion at queen's university belfast the men and women who made peace a day to celebrate the dramatic reduction in violence that good friday agreement brought to the alternate what else the devolved government that was an essential component of the agreement has not function did over a year where. one can play at your insistence peace is not at risk the institutions will be barred from players the good friday agreement. the accord
which is going to politics. and relationships and into the for future so i think the future is very bright from the opposite side of northern ireland's divided not a key player britain's withdrawal from the e.u. should not damage the agreement. completely different there is no interaction between them or. what is happening at the moment as some people. are trying to use protection to the aggrieved and i hope that they successfully. later the chief negotiator for the united states senator george mitchell and former president bill clinton were honored with the freedom of belfast i will always be grateful i came to belfast when peace of been made with the city was still troubled
one was in good and decent people had to actually make a decision to do the right thing to be the right sort of person to give children the right sort of future it was a fortunate. that blew me here one of the good friday agreement that outside pressure needed to bring peace to the world and i. would still end up breaking down i don't think the world the modern day i sure about writing poetry is no longer a bad thing for me. it was a time when as the irish poet seamus heaney wrote hope and history rhymed and elusive harmony that can never be taken for granted. bobby phillips al jazeera belfast was mourning everything we're covering including of course analysis that takes you behind that lines al jazeera dot com.
just a quick look at the top stories now rival russian and u.s. proposals at the u.n. over chemical weapons use in syria have both failed to go through russia wanted to create a new inquiry into the attacks bought the votes fell short of the minimum required for the resolution to pass and then moscow earlier vetoed a competing u.s. attempt to establish an investigation which would have the power to attribute blame for the chemical weapons attacks in syria. there were really only two key differences between our draft and russia's but those differences beat volumes first russia wanted to give themselves the chance to approve the investigators who were chosen for the task and second russia wanted to have the security council
assess the findings of any investigation before any report was released does any of that sound independent or impartial. so russia's proposal wasn't about an independent impartial investigation at all it was all about protecting the assad regime. you have already appointed the guilty party before the investigation you do not need the investigation you do not want to hear anything you don't want to hear that no traces of a chemical attack was found in duma you've simply been looking for a pretext all this time and there are other headlines monica bug has said he's sorry about the privacy data breach of facebook a social media c.e.o. has been facing questions at a congressional hearing on capitol hill he said the breach was his fault and the company needed to do better so coburg is being questioned about the cambridge analytical scandal and russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election and all the developments u.s.
