12:03 am
they approach the fourteenth of may seventy years since israel declared statehood in the day the u.s. is moving its embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem we will be ok then the next the next for a this is the we have a good message also from the will there be able to continue all of that was that it should. be able was eating or the boys to see what. israel continues to accuse islamic jihad and especially hamas which controls gaza of using the protests as cover for what it calls terrorist activity. of the seven thousand palestinians participated in these riots we had several attempts to cross the technical fence and to throw molotov cocktails and other terrorist devices against israeli troops. here comes more tear gas there's been a lot of tires being burned just behind which people have been gathering some are being using slingshots to throw stones and here comes the tear gas in response from the israeli side as people massed at
12:04 am
a second location south of the main protest site the tear gas volleys intensified. as did the sound of live ammunition ambulances departing with greater frequency. the protesters have seen this for weeks now dozens dead and hundreds injured even the wounded keep coming back and abed was shot in both legs during the first demonstration on the thirtieth of march. as have come a model of. how. i'm ready to go back to the israeli border to tell the world that this is our right we should get to return to our land as soon as i recover i will join the protest again. head of gaza's mental health committee says the deadly sniper fire is so far having little deterrent effect would that increase the anger among people or would that make them more scared you know i'm more scared of what the most scary thing that people are scared off because their live the life conditions you know what he or she have to do. and live this moment come give them
12:05 am
the right to speak. this week's protests continued a downward trend in shooting injuries but concerns are deepening about what could happen on the fourteenth of may protest organizers are calling for a million man march on offense which israel has repeatedly shown its willingness to use deadly force because it gaza. u.s. president donald trump has addressed the national rifle association for the first time this is a high school shooting in florida left seventeen people dead earlier this year and she's inspired mass protests across the country calling for stricter gun laws speaking of the lobby groups annual conference trying to protect the second amendment. your second amendment right. are on the scene but they will never ever. be uniters. as long as i know your president. well let's get all the details from heidi jocasta his side the conference in dallas
12:06 am
texas heidi what else to trump have to say. julie is so president did talk about guns but because he talked about so many other talk to topics it was hard to determine what the main point was he talked about criticizing the iran deal he said that the u.s. now was doing well with north korea he referred to the russia investigation as a hoax any again criticize what he calls the fake media a point he did return to was the need for republican voters to turn out for these upcoming congressional elections in november the u.s. house of representatives has the potential of slipping to the democrat control if that party's able to flip twenty three seats and right now with the low approval of donald trump and public sentiment it appears that the republicans are indeed in danger in that chamber of congress and said again and again that this was the time
12:07 am
for his supporters many of whom were here at the n.r.a. association that contributed more than thirty that thirty million dollars to election campaign and they indeed greeted the president's words with approval with applause these are among his most ardent supporters truly be anything to give much hope to those who want to loosen the grip as they see it over the n.r.a. . in today's comments from trump truly there was none of that although today is the key word here because prior to taking the stage i spoke to some protesters here who said they had a glimmer of hope that perhaps the president would strike a more. compromising tone as he had done in the days after the parklane florida high school shooting in which seventeen people were killed is a remember of following that shooting president trump had a televised meeting with lawmakers in the white house in which he said that he
12:08 am
would support raising the age limit for buying assault weapons and he point at least that to some of the republican senators present that perhaps they were scared of the n.r.a. but that he the president was different and he wasn't although the day after that meeting at the white house before that and that with n.r.a. leaders and very soon backpedal them all of those statements the white house is current stance on gun control was it supported a bill that did it. did did improve the background check but only slightly and now the president is pushing for his idea of arming school teachers as his administration's response to these massive shootings truly. joining me there live from dallas. well earlier don't jump contradicted his lawyer rudy giuliani over comments he made about adult film star stormy daniels said giuliani would quote get his facts straight in a t.v. interview giuliani said trump knew about payments daniels after the alleged affair
12:09 am
in two thousand and six trump previously denied knowledge of the hush money. there will be no regard during the day. will get it back great great guy but what he does will be very deadly drug rehab. aid workers in kenya say they've reached only a quarter of nearly fifty thousand families who need help because of severe flooding the warning comes from kenya's red cross which is struggling to find enough funding for its emergency operations under simmons has traveled with one of the already thousands which sets out by speedboat to try to reach thousands of people were and by the floods in taina river country. looks like a vast lake yet this is the river town and it's consumed villages and lives.
12:10 am
we changed course away from the river going deep into the bush. and. the mango trees full of fruit. the birds make good out of most situations. but any illusion of normality is lost when you look through the clearing. was a seasonal stream has turned into this. the forces of nature of the water line that still rising. on the shoreline ahead people who have walked for hours from higher land. they've waited days for help to arrive no cheers no shouts no pushing but the need here is deep seated. it's not everywhere in the world why you'd find people so calm in a situation like this when they've been marooned for several days with absolutely nothing coming in until now but there are pockets of anger because i hadn't heard
12:11 am
of that and you know it. sounds like that hearing that i have been here for the days waiting for the help i haven't received any of the days no way i can wait any longer i need it now and he has all the right saying that but again i can also help way come. across we've done what we can for now and we are asking more people to come and help us so that we can reach more people. and even some of those getting their rations of food and enough aid to give them basic shelter feel it's not enough this mother of eight is setting out on a two hour walk back to where she's living rough her home has been lost along with her life story on and on so much that i was on i did i was on the i'm scared about my children the hungry they're exposed to the rains and because of that we're likely to fall sick for those left behind you can see it from their expressions they need help now along with so many others and even more remote places than this
12:12 am
andrew simmons al-jazeera in kenya is ten a river county. still to come on this al-jazeera news hour a regional tensions could influence the outcome of this when we can see elections in lebanon. the mexico city police are overworked underpaid and sometimes even forced to buy their own bullets. in school world and limb pick champion caster semenya runs into an all star and conversation. with. his main opposition party has announced more i'm in this as its presidential candidate thousands of people attended the rally in ankara where the republican people's party and i'm still him as their candidate in his first speech he promised to struggle for democracy and to be
12:13 am
a president for all turkey's eighteen million citizens or two and called the snap elections in june the twenty fourth that's a good year and a half ahead of show. that people in lebanon will cast their ballots on sunday in the parliamentary elections it's likely regional players iran and saudi arabia will be closely monitoring the outcome of the vote as the rift between them deepens lebanon remains calls in the middle of reports from beirut. it's the last day of election campaigning opponents trade accusations and lebanon's main political parties why for a bigger say this is a country that is divided along sectarian lines prime minister saad that had to be the most powerful sunni politician here has told his supporters that this election is about protecting against iran's growing influence. there this election is a confrontation between two visions one that wants to protect beirut's identity
12:14 am
while the other aims to change its identity well beirut the house really accuses his main rival and hezbollah leader hassan nasrallah of controlling lebanon's decision making process see it in the arm and the lebanese should listen to anyone who wants to drag the country into civil war. a saudi arabia and iran remain locked in a battle for regional influence people here are worried about their future. saudi arabia has its men in lebanon and iran has its men in lebanon want the country will continue to be the battlefield for the struggle for now it's political unless it turns into a military confrontation. how do you he has stepped up his campaign beirut is his stronghold while is eager to make more gains in the big. and the south.
12:15 am
the regional influence paralyzes the government paralyzes political life lebanon had no president for two years and this was a result of regional disagreements. in two thousand and sixteen saudi arabia and iran set aside their differences behaving the way for the election of a new president and a new government led by how do you but it's not clear if that deal would hold amid the growing tension between the regional rivals. this is a course a moment not only for lebanon but also for the two political heavyweights saudi arabia and iran both will so are their local allies will consolidate their gains in the election. beirut. this in mexico city said they're struggling to fight crime under such poor working conditions as violence surges in the capital officers have told al-jazeera they often have to buy their own supplies including bullets they're also battling against regular accusations of corruption being infiltrated
12:16 am
by truck gangs john homan explains corrupt inefficient and in some cases even in league with the organizer crime not surprisingly many mexican simply don't trust their police officers but there is another side to the story a survey of almost finally found some policemen and women found that many especially at municipal level a badly paid and lack the basic equipment to do their job this office into quanah one of the most violent towns in the country told us they aren't supplied with enough bullets regularly have to buy their own it. it's not just doms elsewhere francisco escovedo had to retire of the damaging his spine push starting his police truck every morning he says he spent a year asking superiors for a new battery to implement and they were told me the same he says put up with it or buy one yourself ngo counselling commune who surveyed offices across the country
12:17 am
found some police paying for uniforms car repairs and petrol all out of their own low salaries so if you could have police that badly trained and not paid the right amount what are the implications for society in general in mexico well if you get paid like two hundred bucks a month and irish prime counting to one thousand a month of course has to take for many those few other ways to get ahead more than two thirds of police surveyed had never been promoted officer is my old ramos told us that in many cases the only way to get a step up is to pay superior officers it's called the quota but here we have intermediate positions superior positions and all costs depending on the position of the one and it's legal of course is the legal but that's a system in mexico city the mix cross city police force told out zero they didn't know of any such cases although the quota isn't present in every force other
12:18 am
municipal policeman told us they have to pay not for promotion but to get a car or decide where they patrol they said the systematic corruption at least to some offices extorting the population to pay their own superiors which in turn leads to the mexican public this trusting the police it's a vicious cycle and it's happening just at the wrong time it's can murder levels of the highest in two decades and the country needs a strong respected force to deal with that and those for the police who are trying to stay honest is my rameau's has twenty years experience to decorations for bravery and a master's in public security but he's been assigned the job he says of a new recruit guarding a metro station john homan how does it or mexico city. now a massive volcanic eruption in hawaii has forced one thousand seven hundred people to be evacuated from their homes lava flows are threatening residential areas close
12:19 am
to killer where one of the most active volcanoes in the world after set up said on thursday local time m hayward has more. in the heart of a residential area in hawaii molten lava pools down the road burning through woodland and sending smoke ash and rocks into the sky. kill or where to dive to several quakes were felt on hawaii. and hundreds of people living close by and now being told they have no choice they must leave their homes since it's right there behind we could hear this loud. exploding. right from my house and so you know there is a house going to still be there when we go back over there. the emergency services are now involved in a major incident trying to assess the scale of the eruption on the ground and in
12:20 am
the air and how best to help those who live and work in it's path the roads are being blocked talk to keep people out of the most dangerous areas there's a cracker here the road rage right here. helicopters above let's talk. all right so. there are one street over from a lot of the. kill aware has been erupting continuously for more than thirty years but there's been more to pity in recent days. it's. about fifteen kilometers away from where it had been in for roughly two and now. a high frequency of earthquakes it's not known how long list current will last. is urging people to stay safe and. they would. well tanno will one is a vulcanologist from the carnegie institution for science in washington d.c.
12:21 am
dan a very warm welcome to the program good to have your company diana how much to know about this particular volcano. this is one of the most well studied volcanoes in the world we know quite a bit about its behavior and what to expect in situations like this we have seen about several weeks of warnings that this activity was coming so this is one of the nice things we do get a sense of impending activity from volcanic activity at diana just how difficult is it to predict the finer points of when a volcano might erupt well this is the challenge especially with a volcano like killer way or that's huge and very complex the question is often not if or when but where the volcano will erupt the challenge with this activity is the fact that it occurred in a populated area now the question is will it stay in that area will it move to
12:22 am
another part of the part of the volcano and how long will it last and down over the years. much progress has been made in this sort of monitoring and wondering you know what goes on behind the scenes in the monitoring of these full cables. we have a wide range of technology but we still learn things just by simply watching the volcano so in fact some of the clues were simply visual changes at the summit of the volcano but at this point we have very sensitive instrumentation that we can install on the volcano and we can also watch for signs of unrest using satellites which lets us look at volcanoes around the world even in remotely populated areas so the technology and the science has really advanced incredibly in the past few decades and we heard from some of the residents who live close to the volcano obviously there was talking about you know the sort of toxic gas that the volcano emits and they were talking about the slow lava flow that they were seeing but but what are the big risks in reality. for this type of an
12:23 am
eruption the big risk is more to property and infrastructure than to people obviously there are concerns about air quality with gases being released by by the lava and also fires that are being set in the area as this lava moves through but really the concern is about people's houses roads potentially being blocked and cutting off access to supplies or medical care but the concern is largely you cannot walk a lava flow but you can't move a house out of the way so so property is likely to be lost in a situation like this one and will obviously end of this is extremely concerning for those who live close to the volcano how interesting is it for you in these moments to see things to watch and observe and see things develop. most of okinawa just these sorts of episodes are extremely interesting and one of the great things is the data that we collect during this episode will help us in the future
12:24 am
to be more specific about what is likely to occur it will basically help us our advance advance our science and our ability to let people know what they can expect so it is an opportunity as well as a hardship for the people living in the area that are impacted to handle and they're joining me live from washington d.c. to am a funky i'll just say a journalist mark with his same as i when held in an egyptian jail for five hundred days he was detained without charge by authorities in twenty sixteen during the holiday to chiral egyptian national is just one of many journalists have been harassed or threatened with arrest in recent years some of binge of eight reports. five hundred days locked up and counting mahmoud hussein and al jazeera deny provoking sedition incitement against egypt and spreading false news the un condemned his detention hussein was stopped questioned and detained in december twenty sixth seen after travelling to cairo for

12:42 am
a win but whatever china gives it won't be sufficient for trump or for the u.s. because there's no way for china to abandon its industrial policy. it's six months since president trump and china's leaders she jingping last met and they could be getting together again soon after trump tweeted that he looks forward to seeing she in the not too distant future that could mean after his planned summit with kim jong un the cheating ping had someone else on his mind on friday karl marx the german philosopher was born two hundred years ago on saturday the president repeatedly said the communist party mustn't forget its socialist roots as it strives to bring about the rejuvenation of the chinese nation and that rejuvenation includes maintaining a tough line with the united states on trade adrian brown al jazeera beijing
