welcome to the program two palestinian men have been killed by the israeli military during protests israel border palestinians are holding another major rally for the fall friday in a row another sixty people are injured the deaths bring the total to thirty five palestinians killed by israeli soldiers since the protests began nearly a month ago bernard smith is our correspondent following events for us in gaza we know that two people have been killed but what seems to be the latest. so significant increase in numbers of people. now we've got about my colleagues estimate similar numbers to last week in all there was about ten thousand protesters at the five different sites in gaza behind me there you see these tents now these tents part of the symbol of this protest of the right of return of edge forward by about three hundred or so meters closer to the israeli border which just if we climb up this little berm here we can see sort of seven hundred meters away
5:03 pm
down there is the israeli friends now although they've been different themes every week for these protests the ultimate theme of all of this is this right of return and the reason those temp tents are edging forward is because the palestinians want it all to mostly by the end of all of this by may fifteenth. the when they were all forced to leave their lines in what is now israel they want to be able to get to that be out that fence and many say they want to be able to try and cross that fence and this is what the israelis are worried about at the moment and of course burn it in the days leading to each and every demonstration on the friday the israelis have been warning the residents that to really stay away in different ways . why are they attempt this week what they've been doing is they've been they were dropping yesterday these posters these flyers by helicopter this was warning palestinians here not to take part in the protest it was warning them that israel
5:04 pm
would not tolerate any attempt to damage its friend its friends damage the security of the integrity of our friends it doesn't appear to have much effect after saving the numbers of people here and we've seen over the last couple of hours burning tires over the volleys of tear gas coming over so the pattern that we've seen develop since these protests first began continues so for the moment bernard we'll leave it there and continue to monitor events in gaza with you through the day thank you. now the u.s. says it has credible information that syria's government and its allies russia are removing evidence of a suspected chemical attack on the outskirts of damascus they both deny the allegation and insists the attack itself was staged chemical weapons inspectors are still waiting to be given access to the site in the former rebel held town of duma county lopez who do in reports. access denied inspectors with the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons are on standby waiting to
5:05 pm
enter the area duma a visit to the site of the alleged chemical attack has been delayed for days the investigation stalled the white house says russia and syria are trying to buy time to tamper with evidence we believe it is an effort to conduct their own staged investigations russian officials have worked with the syrian regime we believe to sanitize the locations of those suspected attacks and remove incriminating evidence of chemical weapons use security concerns to the inspection a u.n. risk assessment team says it came under fire as a try to clear away for the inspection days later inspectors are still waiting to go in the u.n. says discussions are taking place in damascus to ensure the o.p.c. w team can go in safely and as quickly as possible i think you could understand the juge. the volatility of the situation the dangers involved we don't want to
5:06 pm
telegraph what will happen but the discussions and planning is ongoing thank you. more than forty people were reportedly killed in the alleged attack almost two weeks ago syria and its strongest ally russia have denied the use of chemical weapons they also refute hindering the investigation was going to. it's absolute rubbish a lie that russia prevents inspectors from entering duma we don't know what made them think that from the beginning we were sincerely interested in sending o.p.c. w. inspectors there we made public statements and that moreover we contacted the syrian side so that all documents including visas were provided to the inspectors as soon as possible. the u.s. u.k. and france retaliated by bombing several syrian government sites now it's not just western power. sources are keeping a close eye on the pending inspection all the parties have agreed to allow the
5:07 pm
o.p.c. w teams access unfettered access immediate access to these sites you know we can't get around the fact that the syrian government and their russian allies control the territory we're talking about a race against time as concerns grow that possible evidence of the alleged attack may be tainted or even disappear before inspectors begin their investigation could see a little pissed of the young al-jazeera. russia's foreign minister as the u.s. led strikes on syria last week did not cross what he called a red line so says the kremlin told the us which areas would be unacceptable to talk it heals us as donald trump has invited to me a putin to visit washington hospital. where you know we had contacts between the military leadership and the level of generals with our representatives in the commanders of the u.s. led coalition they were informed about where our red lines are including geographical red lines on the ground in any case the result showed they have not
5:08 pm
crossed these red lines were chalons has more from moscow. russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov has given an interview to a man called dmitri kosloff who in the west is regarded as russia's head or chief propagandist he's the boss of you know the kind of overarching state media organization. and what lavrov told kissimmee of these. trump and putin would not allow the two countries to march into war with each other you get the impression i think that after the pyrotechnics last weekend russia is interested diplomatically at least being in a kind of holding pattern not escalating the situation with the united states even further so it says that russia was very clear or lover of says that russia was very clear. with the united states that there were certain red lines that there had in syria not to be crossed with its airstrikes and the united states listened and
5:09 pm
didn't cross them there has to be some. notion of russian pushback kept on the table though but the only threat that we're really getting from the russians is keeping the idea of supplying syria with its sophisticated s. three hundred air defense system keeping that on the table but actually this is a system that is already in operation in syria because the russians actually have it in their arsenal there but we're also going to get something from the diplomatic track later on today when the lever of meets with steffan de mistura and to be interesting to see what comes out of that meeting because with the military campaign going so well for russia at the moment's mopping up these last enclaves of rebel activity with the model that it used aleppo then in eastern bombardment followed by offers of humanitarian true so that the rebels and their families can clear out without going so well is it in russia's interest now to move back to the
5:10 pm
diplomatic track in geneva and get some sort of advantageously peace deal on the table we'll have to wait and see what comes out of that meeting and whether russia is yet ready to do that. well inside syria rebels have abandoned the pocket of northeast of damascus under an evacuation deal it's believed all members of a group known as the army of islam have now left the area of doing there and in nearby rebels have agreed to lay down arms as expected they'll begin leaving within days. tens of thousands of american students are walking out of their classrooms to mark nineteen years since the machine columbine high school in the state of colorado these are live pictures from various schools across the u.s. being transmitted by american networks in one nine hundred ninety nine two teenagers shot and killed twelve students and a teacher at the school the anniversary is carrying extra significance this year
5:11 pm
students are demanding gun reforms have to emerge shooting at a school in parkland florida in february where seventeen were killed of course they were all teenagers our correspondent andy gallagher is live for us in parkland in florida and he really a national walk out of students on an anniversary of a previous massacre really doesn't get more poignant than that does it. that's right you said what happened there at colombine where thirteen people were killed nineteen years ago not much has changed since then obviously in february seventeen lives were lost there were the marjorie stoneman douglas high school the students here have begun to walk out there are three thousand students at this school i've only seen perhaps less than a hundred walkout because it's not just about the walkout today it's also about students doing what they call a day of service there's lots of voter registration going on here and more than two thousand schools across the country are taking part you can see pictures from
5:12 pm
across the united states where as people hit that ten am time zone on the eastern coast students are walking out to call for gun reform to service their local communities to register to vote come november this is really about keeping up that momentum that we sall build that spark clip we saw build here in parkland where the students from this school who lost so much of being speaking so eloquently of course took to the streets of washington d.c. and the hundreds of thousands so it is an anniversary of what happened nineteen years ago a remembrance of course of what happened in sandy hook when twenty six first graders were killed a few years ago so it is that momentum trying to keep on building these students trying to keep pushing for change some of them will actually leave the schools and they will go to their local senators offices to build that pressure to call for change and although not much changes happened since february here in the state of florida of course governor rick scott signed new legislation pushing the minimum
5:13 pm
age for buying an assault rifle up to the age of twenty one that was seen as something of a major victory for the students campaigning but not nearly enough to what they actually want they want to see a complete ban on assault rifles they want to see that minimum age range to twenty one across the country increased background checks and of course increased funding for school security and of course the question does arise that even after those horrific incidents that you just mentioned if you know of. sandy hook and columbine and parkland very little changed in the aftermath in the years that went by except maybe more school security and even now we've seen sometimes even that can lapse on occasion. you know what more besides putting pressure on the lawmakers and having big demonstrations in the capital ordinary people do across the united states if there is a will at all. well i think this is about the power of the vote i've seen lots of polls of republicans people who traditionally support the
5:14 pm
national rifle association support at the second amendment the right to bear arms some polls i've seen say sixty percent of republicans now want to see some kind of what they call commonsense gun reform the politicians off eeling those winds of change i think certainly as we've traveled the country and certainly as i've covered lots of these kinds of mass shootings over the years part bunda sensually change the conversation that was in part due to the eloquence and the determination of the children from this school and how they spoke but i also think you've got this generation growing up post colombine that all the mass school shooting generation it's these children some of whom are now adults who got to live with this scenario that was never seen before and i think public opinion is shifting but it will be a very long and hard fought battle to change the gun laws in this country the national rifle association is still extremely powerful it still gives millions of dollars to politicians in this country lots of them like senator marco rubio of miami i determined not to change their minds but i think these students as they
5:15 pm
come to become adults as they register to vote they will apply their own pressure they certainly don't plan on giving up and i think the public wins the public opinions are slowly changing but it will still be a very hard for fight i think that will keep monitoring it with you and your colleagues across the u.s. for the moment time to thank you. bill in a moment we'll have the weather and then with the old town the poll is trying to clear the air and it's roads also scarred for life we meet some of the most vulnerable survivors of violence in the democratic republic of congo those stories after the break here on al-jazeera. welcome back we have an area of rain across parts of eastern china which is being
5:16 pm

5:17 pm

5:21 pm
did the same in the house next door as well another family lived here and they ran a business they were repairing motorcycles and selling spare parts also completely destroyed. and it's a similar story of destruction as you go down the street. many of the homes on this side belong to people from the hammer ethnic group they weren't any targets just across the road homes and businesses belonging to ethnic cleansing were destroyed as well. as being conflict between the two ethnic groups in the past in the one nine hundred ninety s. in two thousand uganda and rwanda the congolese government control of eastern congo in a turi and lendu militias were their proxies tens of thousands of civilians were killed but now look kind of safari told us there is no conflict between the two groups he's a lendu who says he haiti's hammon neighbors here in his house when the militia are attacked like many he thinks politicians planned the violence to further postpone
5:22 pm
congo's elections. were that they were waiting for elections so we can have new leadership this is our will but the killing started without reason where this was already prepared for linda with him or to start killing each other i consider this a deliberately planned conflict and my. government denies this since the attacks began soldiers to take control of the villages. it's difficult to identify the enemy right now army intelligence working to identify who killed and burned houses and who was behind the massacres we've arrested some alicia who are already facing justice. the army says the area is now secure and people should return some have many more have not because they still don't feel safe because they have nothing left to return to malcolm webb al jazeera it to republicans in the democratic republic of congo. they spanish separatist group better has

apologized for its violent campaign in the northern region more than eight hundred fifty people died during forty years of bombings and attacks before two thousand and eleven cease fire at or is now in the process of dissolving. the polls government is banning older public vehicles in an effort to better control our pollution some say the move is unfair for people who rely on their wheels to make a living. has more from the capital kathmandu. government is traffic can be a nightmare and often the pollution levels exceed that of larger cities like new delhi and beijing you know to manage pollution in accidents in the past government started enforcing an old decision to ban public vehicles that are more than twenty years old last year public eagles alone were sponsible more than seventy thousand major and minor accidents and the valley. twenty year old vehicles were banned from the city two years ago but the ban has now been imposed across the country according to the department of transportation as many as sixty thousand vehicles
5:24 pm
will be taken off the roads because of this decision. just a few hours outside gottman due in bank village there are a few buses transporting locals drivers here are happy that the ban has just come into effect but i know why it didn't register on or worse is on these roads bridges and the student can fail and there can be accidents but vehicles older than twenty years to even thirty years are you still operating around here. but the decision has upset some transport entrepreneurs' were often accused of acting like cartels just last month to come to their monopoly on bus routes and allowed new buses now don't trip in your see this twenty year ban will impact the group is the most. we have got is operating in the hills they cost one hundred to one hundred fifty thousand dollars now can't replace those vehicles and people will be deprived of the services if vehicles are damaged even within five to ten years they should be removed from operation capping the life of big girls to twenty years is
5:25 pm
unscientific and pallies pay high rates of taxes to import new vehicles up to two hundred eighty eight percent government officials say it takes no longer than twelve years to recover paid investment on public transport and extra eight years its profit transport entrepreneur say they already run at a loss and it was subsidies to buy you vehicles now threatening to go on an extended strike but government officials say they are not going to back down. on the government so far has only a regulatory and managerial role in the public transportation sector we need to operate our own public transportation system like the metropolitan cities in developed countries we are lobbying and hope to demonstrate this all over the country the ban of all vehicles might not have much impact on lucian but if both sides don't compromise and vehicles are not replaced on blue roads the poorest
