2:05 pm
empty training facilities that's not particularly unusual but israel says that on saturday somebody infiltrated got through the fence between gaza and israel set fire to a tent used by a sniper and then gone back in to guard and this highlights what is one of israel's great fears is that if somebody gets through that fence they might try and kidnap an israeli soldier it would be a significant escalation from the garza side if they tried the palestinians trying to do that but nevertheless this is an israeli fear aid group doctors without borders says dozens of refugees and migrants have been shot and wounded while trying to escape human traffickers in libya the victims were from eritrea. and somalia they flowed from the town of bani walid on wednesday to local hospital says twenty of them are being treated for torture related injuries doctors without borders says fifteen people were killed and twenty five injured during the escape

2:11 pm
the first time sammy you're hearing. that paranoid racist and xenophobic comments even inside the bundestag where turning for germany have more than ninety seats so there's a big attempt a day by the counter protesters to try and drown out the. voice of the alternative for germany but if you look at the. democratic base if you like sammy that's very much in the east of germany it's amongst the blue collar workers the older people the older generation in eastern germany and these are people who are very afraid for their jobs their future that culture they don't feel they can integrate that sheer volume of refugees inside their communities and if you look at the polls the terms of the journey have been rising gradually above the thirteen point six percent they got in last year's elections and now they've overcome the green party here so as you said they are now the main opposition and this is causing some sort
2:12 pm
of rift in the grand coalition that the social democrats want a much more liberal attitude whereas anger merkel's party very much are afraid of the effect the rise of the terms for germany is having on the whole shape of the german politics and inside the people in the study so we're set for a confrontation real next few years in german politics and today was set for a large confrontation on the streets of berlin two thousand police have been deployed because they're afraid that up to nine thousand protesters some of them are extreme left wing and they've said they are determined to try and take action again against the also for germany who are about to set off for the brandenburg gate of plenty more for us to keep an eye on we'll check in with you later david for now that's david chase of that. still ahead on al-jazeera we look at south africa's president's first one hundred days in office and see if he's living up to his promises. and we meet the campaign is pushing to make new york city more

2:16 pm
least fifteen people have died and dozens of refugees have been wounded while trying to escape human traffickers in libya the victims were from eritrea ethiopia and somalia. a protest against refugees is taking place in berlin far right party alternative for germany is marching through the capital it swept into parliament last year on a wave of anti migrant sentiment counter-demonstrations up also planned. to be one hundred days since cyril ramaphosa became south africa's president he took office software his predecessor jacob zuma resigned under pressure from his party soon. i've been in power for eight years but faced allegations of corruption reports from johannesburg. they called it rama four yeah the reaction of many south africans when cyril ramaphosa became president
2:17 pm
in february things had gone from bad to worse for his predecessor jacob zuma his eight years were blighted by a series of corruption scandals. last year people protested calling for him to step down eventually resigned under pressure from his own party to run opposed he's been promising to clean up ever since this is the year in which. we were. in our public institution thanks he began with a cabinet reshuffle some of the controversial ministers to zoom out but other states including this man believes he's now minister of home affairs leaked documents linked him to major corruption scandals he denied involvement. but it seems rum oppose a has helped investor confidence south africa's currency the rand and its credit ratings have stabilized since he took over but the political opposition says it's
2:18 pm
not enough and i haven't seen anybody going to jail for the corruption top of the corruption in south africa all we hearing him is paying lip service to corruption and say he's going to do both and he's going to do that one hundred days i haven't seen anybody been arrested yet. last month rahm oppose a cut short a trip to a commonwealth summit in london and people protested in the northwest province they demanded the governor. to step down over all delivery of public services frequently recurring issue in south africa. another key issue is land since apartheid most of it still belongs to the white minority many black people the landless on the pressure from opposition in february opposes he supported a motion in parliament to try and amend the constitution to allow government expropriation of land without payment historically the a.n.c. is rhetoric has been radical with politicians promising redistributions of wealth but in practice its economic policies are centrist in that respect in spite of the
2:19 pm
talk of land redistribution things haven't really changed much on the run opposer he's been on the boards of several corporations is widely seen as a friend to big business with presidential elections due next year rahm opposes performance in the months ahead will determine if the a.n.c. can still win the majority it's always enjoyed malcolm webb al-jazeera johannesburg south africa. is a political analyst and author of the book when zuma goes he says has restored confidence in south africa. there are high expectations as to what he could have achieved within the first hundred days but as you correctly state when you look into government institution you look at the key ministries such as national treasury such s.s. they don't entities where corruption was beginning to actually sit in he has changed leadership in those institutions and i do think when it comes to extra
2:20 pm
little people going to jail for corruption and due course is being followed we have seen a higher level investigation in virus provinces where people are being investigated so i think that when it comes to confidence there is generally a sigh of relief among south africans that now they have a president with a sense of what is wrong and what is right but of course it will take time to unseat the league us your present job too much administration and eight years of corruption will not be undone in four months. less than two hours polls will open in colombia where people will be electing a new president the vote could decide the fate of the two thousand and sixteen peace agreement between the government and fock rebels our latin america and to listen human has more who's vying for the top job. he's the most politically inexperienced of all the candidates but conservatively than doogie has an enviable advantage he's the protege of colombia's still immensely popular former president
2:21 pm
of the don't. like his right wing mentor duke is a staunch critic of the two thousand and sixteen peace accord reached with colombia's fark rebels which many complain was too soft he told al-jazeera he would start by making a fundamental change. we want the leaders responsible for crimes against humanity to be obliged to tell the truth about what they did to compensate the victims and to go to prison. but that wasn't the original deal and many fear changing it could reignite a war that lasted for more than fifty years. on the opposite extreme of the ideological divide is former bogota mayor. colombia's first truly competitive left wing presidential candidate. he says maintaining peace and promoting social justice are his priorities better as feared by the business sector and others who predict he'd turn colombia into another venezuela. the problem with petro is that
2:22 pm
governability would be very complicated he would clash with the establishment but duke a representative congress passed with war and the implementation of the peace accords . but there are other options including with the us moderate former mayor said he had a little and center right wing former vice president hit man by the us polls indicate neither is likely to make it to an expected runoff but then lately polls have been wrong. this is colombia's first presidential election since the flock laid down its weapons but the army is nevertheless being deployed nationwide to guarantee security here they're not expecting any trouble but that's not the case in other parts of the country where there are still rebel groups and large. colombians have several choices the question is whether or not they will choose a new president who will stay on the current course of peace. you see in human.
