12:13 pm
bought this house he has the documents that he says prove his claim but since twenty fifteen he and his family have been living under the threat of eviction. we were shocked we had lived here i was born here grew up here and married here me my brothers and my kids we're all here the whole family is here a jewish trust claims ownership of the neighborhood citing a deal struck in the late nineteenth century providing homes here for yemeni jews in two thousand and two the justice ministry reordered the land to that trust now controlled by a process and organization that buys and builds homes in occupied east jerusalem now palestinians with homes here have petitioned the high court the state's attorney in the case admitting procedural failings in the way the land was transferred the residents argument is that the ottoman era law which is being used in the attempt to evict them has been misinterpreted that it should have implied ownership only over the buildings that were once lived in by jewish occupants here
12:14 pm
not ownership of the land it still remains and they point out that in a separate dispute over land elsewhere in east jerusalem the government ruled that land ownership was not conferred by the law judging in that case that a muslim trust shouldn't be awarded the rights to it or get it locks our problem is that we oppose the jewish claims that this area is a jewish and even the court has issued a verdict against the arabs the right wing jewish organization involved a terror at koa name declined our request for an interview on the court case but it is generally happy to promote its work increasing the jewish presence in east jerusalem so here he has placed security cameras around his home for evidence of his own in case of disputes with acetylene neighbors the larger dispute over the ownership of this land will be decided in israel's high court harry for sit out his era occupied east jerusalem. i will not be moving its embassy in israel to jerusalem despite strong support from the ruling party's base and overalls he's on

12:16 pm
couple of years but your florence's came out quite quickly and said no the initial information suggests that the driver kyrgyz had lost control of the vehicle he had been arrested various charges have already been brought against him. parts then the footage was released which actually search shows something a little bit different it seems to show the driver. pulling purposefully off the road he was standing in stationary traffic mounting the curb and then driving quite far since the pedestrians making it look like a much more deliberate thing of course there are ways in which you could explain that away more innocently but it does raise questions and the russian authorities do have previous history do have form in taking a very long time to attribute things to deliberate actions i'm talking about the bombing of a plane over the sinai peninsula in egypt
12:17 pm
a few years ago which the russians didn't want to say was related so any kind of terrorist acts as a eventually ended up calling it the russians have a very high profile events going on at the moment the world cup there under the international spotlight they want it to go off without a hitch and so i suspect that they might try to say that anything like this that happens is not a deliberate attack until the all the evidence shows and i think otherwise. technology has now as now played its part at football's world cup and russia a video assistant referee was used for the first time in awarding a penalty to france in the two one win against australia in the other groups a match denmark defeated three hundred quid a argentina's start little messy missed a penalty and the one old draw against minnows iceland crisis outclassed nigeria to no. i'm not

disappointed because you have. five zero. to zero and this is for me. to say with all the very latest from the world cup there on our website out zero. zero zero zero these are top stories the un envoy to yemen is in the capital sana'a after talks to stop fighting over the port city of data iran back to the fighters say they're still in control of the airport dismissing claims by government forces supported by the saudi and alliance. a car bomb attack has marred celebrations of a temporary ceasefire between the afghan government and the taliban at least twenty

independent investigation into the death has been given the go ahead but the opposing sides remain on able to find a solution to political divisions. seventeen people have been killed in violence well as cops in caracas after a tear gas canister was set off during a student graduation party in a nightclub the interior minister says the device went off during a fight triggering a stampede eight people were arrested including two teenagers accused of detonating a canister. there as president has used his weekly address to blame democrats for not closing loopholes that allow gang members into the country donald trump says the democrats are protecting immigrant criminals connected to gangs such as m.s. thirteen his administration has adopted a zero tolerance policy to immigrants crossing the border illegally one of its policies of separating children from parents has been heavily criticized of state all the headlines do say with an al-jazeera counting the cost is next.
12:21 pm
in this. one it's still. demonstrably. with the human. oh and has a seeker this is counting a cost on al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics by warmer relations with north korea u.s. president donald trump continues to threaten international trade ties. gregg's it count down why businesses are warning that parts of u.k. manufacturing risk becoming extinct. plus the growth of the videogame industry it's outpacing music and cinema in the money race. so us president donald trump's relationship with north korea's kim jong un seems to
12:22 pm
be all smiles but his trade ties with western allies and china are on rattling the u.s. slapped a twenty five percent tariff on imports of steel and a ten percent tariff on alimony i'm on the european union canada and mexico earlier this month not surprisingly they plan to respond with their own tariffs on u.s. goods and it was reported on friday that trump has approved tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of chinese imports the decision could spark a trade war between the world's two biggest economies lawrence louis has that. ultimately the u.s. wants to reduce its trade deficit with china and it wants to give american companies greater access to the chinese market the two countries have been holding talks to avoid a possible trade war and after three rounds of talks the chinese have agreed to increase their purchases of farm and energy products from us by as much as seventy
12:23 pm
billion dollars but if these tariffs go ahead that deal will be void and china has threatened to further action through what many of. them if the united states takes unilateral protectionist measures harming china's interests we will quickly react and take necessary steps to resolutely protect our fair legitimate rights if the tariff posed they could complicate the relationship between china and the u.s. at a time when the u.s. needs china's help in enforcing u.n. sanctions on north korea the trumpet ministration believes it is these tougher sanctions that played a part in forcing north korea to the negotiation table but some analysts also say because the talks between north korea and the u.s. were a success then trump now has a little bit more leeway to be tougher on china with regards to trade because china is not going to want to derail the process for denuclearization on the korean peninsula because that is consistent with china's own security interests for joining us now from london to talk more about this is andrew kenning him chief
12:24 pm
global economist at capital economics thanks very much for being with us so first off what are the implications then of what is looking right now like a major trade rift between the u.s. and canada. well the implications for canada itself are potentially fairly large in canada exports a lot of steel to the united states. and it's one of the key members of nafta and if the united states walked away from nafta as well as imposing the steel tariffs we could see slightly weaker growth in canada perhaps or by about half a percent of g.d.p. over the next couple of years so it's a negative not perhaps a huge one but certainly a negative what what what are the chances then that the the u.s. under try could actually walk away from nafta i mean there are questions in the u.s. about whether he actually has the authority to do that by himself but putting that aside. given that given the current state of relations is it is that
12:25 pm
a real possibility well it did look rather unlikely a few weeks ago because the two sides seem to be reaching an agreement on the most controversial issue which is about cars and the local content in the car export so we thought an agreement might just be reached but it's now looking less likely again and we have elections coming up in mexico which could result in a more populist president there who would be less likely to reach an agreement with the u.s. so i think that is a possibility i mean it's very hard obviously to read president trump's mind but it's a possibility but not perhaps the most likely scenario i think more likely we see negotiations drag on. and then along with all of this we see china stepping into the breach more it seems when it comes to the issue of free trade with a whole one one belt initiative what do you make of that because that's something
12:26 pm
that would would have been unthinkable just a few years ago i think the china u.s. situation is potentially more damaging for the world economy and we could well see trump the u.s. administration impose significant tariffs on china in the next few days even the suggestions that could affect maybe up to one hundred fifty billion dollars worth of chinese exports to the united states and certainly that would have a negative impact both on the chinese economy and also on business confidence more more generally but i think the provided that the measures don't go much wider than what has been threatened so far these world remain issues for particular industries and for particular countries rather than something that threatens the overall situation of the global economy which actually still looking quite good and it would seem as well that the. the much heralded trump kim summit in singapore is
12:27 pm
already reaping benefits for china what's your view on that why i think it's very early to to jump to that conclusion the markets barely reacted to the summit which is interesting but then of course they barely reacted a year ago when trump was threatening north korea with fire and fury so i think the markets are right that they think that we need to wait and see and that there's a long way to go before we can be confident that the north korean regime and kim himself is willing to denuclearize it will be very difficult thing for both sides to do does he have it right on tariffs. no i think i mean i'm i agree with the vast majority of economists that protectionism is is very unlikely to be helpful the only way he could work out it could work out well i think is if other countries were to open up and there would be some kind of a trade deal for example china being more willing to let investment into its
12:28 pm
banking sector and perhaps reduce tariffs on on the car imports so that's the only potential positive outcome but it doesn't look like that's going to happen and the way that the trump ministrations going about things is very odd because they're putting the tariffs on a lot of their key allies as well as on their enemies in terms of the trade war and that's not going to help so be better if they were to work with europe to put some pressure on china for example rather than. creating a sort of atmosphere where it's everybody against united states good to speak with the and you can and thanks for being with us you're welcome all right still to come on counting the cost it's being dubbed the naf start world cup despite their frosty relations catarrh that mexico and the usa will jointly host the event eight years from now. but first some of the biggest names in media are teaming up to survive time warner owns news channel c.n.n. and h.b.o.
