a moment of truth a vote that we are faced with today so i would call upon each of the members of the security council speaking on behalf of france to take proper stock of what is at stake here and to live up to their responsibilities and to the us vote in favor of the american draft resolution as the day was the council continue to splinter a russian proposal for an investigative mechanism fails to get the nine votes needed to pass the u.s. not even needing to veto and an explanation of how it differed in two ways from the u.s. led resolution the key point is our resolution guarantees that any investigations will truly be independent russia's resolution gives russia itself the chance to choose the investigators and then to assess the outcome there's nothing independent about that the tone of discussion was no less a serb big than in previous sessions the russian ambassador repeating his assertion

6:10 am
a wake up call for the tech community. we want to hear more without delay about what facebook and other companies plan to do to take greater responsibility for what happens on their platforms with the core issue was summed up with one question from democrat to victor but mr zucker berg would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night. no. mark zuckerberg was called in front of the senate after it was discovered millions of users data was improperly obtained by you key piece political consultancy cambridge analytics the use that information to target ads to help donald trump's presidential campaign and the brics it referendum in the u.k. the facebook founder says steps will be taken to ensure such a data breach can never happen again but one senator asked if he was ready to follow through on that promise i believe you have all the talent my question is
6:11 am
whether you have all the will to help us solve this problem yes senator do you believe the european regulation should be applied here in the us regardless of whether we implement the exact same regulation i would guess that it would be somewhat different because we have somewhat different sensibilities perhaps the most contentious exchange came when republican ted cruz accused facebook of political bias are you aware of any ad or page that has been taken down from planned parenthood senator i'm not but let me just kind of i move on to work sorry about move on dot org i'm not specifically aware of about any democratic candidate for office. i'm not specifically aware i mean i i'm not and i'm not sure mark zuckerberg revealed facebook is looking into potential russian links to the cambridge analytical breach and also that the company has cooperated with special counsel robert mueller who's investigating possible collusion between the russians and donald trump's presidential campaign mark zuckerberg spent the weekend

6:15 am
again you're watching out there has a reminder of our top stories this hour i will propose rules from the u.s. and russia to investigate chemical weapons attacks in syria have failed to pass the u.n. security council and outrage over a suspected chemical attack on the town on sausage day. the crisis in the g.c.c. and security issues have dominated a meeting to end cause of the mistakes i mean been in how they dealt poly the u.s. president at the white house donald trump says he's working extremely well with castle. and facebook founder and chief executive mark zuckerberg has finished only five hours of testimony before members of u.s. congress he said he was sorry about the privacy days a breach at the social media giant talk about admits the way facebook connects with other apps was designed in
6:16 am
a way that's not good. one on our top story the resolution on chemical attacks in syria failing to go through the u.n. robert ford is a former u.s. ambassador to syria he says there is little hope of progress on syria at the u.n. . i think the odds of any productive united nations security council resolutions addressing the syria conflict are nil are zero and i'm going to be very frank here. i was involved in the two thousand and thirteen negotiations with the russians with secretary john kerry. russian foreign minister lavrov was there and the russians pledged that if the syrian government used chemical weapons again the russians would accept that chapter seven measures be discussed in the security council resolution and the russians broke there were many times issued vetoes and the russian simply aren't credible and i did i think the americans have reached the
6:17 am
point where they no longer have confidence that anything productive can come out of the united nations and therefore as ambassador halley said they are prepared to act out side the framework of the united nations israeli military has confirmed a video showing an army sniper shooting a palestinian on the gaza border is authentic and says the soldiers involved will be disciplined said in say it shows how gazans was shot despite posing no threat to us ready forces but despite reports from western very slim. 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
6:18 am
shared on social media by one of the soldiers. 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 take in hitting their target doesn't change the fact that the israeli military won't consider the snipers actions unlawful but it's according to one human rights group here. we have his keep hearing that anybody who is coming close to their true defense will be sure anybody who support this if they think in those demonstrations is part of the hamas and they want to destroy israel everybody is a terrorist then what's rationed so totally to me so if the public debate here
6:19 am
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 leg and injured i don't talk at shot that might on the sniper high fines 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 life israeli snipers many crippled for life thirty one people
6:20 am
