israeli government minister who was once imprisoned for trying to smuggle drugs is back behind bars after being charged with spying for iran going and saying it was extradited from guinea and arrested on arrival in israel last month or suspicion of acting as an agent for iranian intelligence and relaying information related to the energy market so i gave a set of met with his operators twice in iran and with the rain in agents in hotels and apartments around the world israeli government has endorsed a bill that seeks to have all of the filming of israeli soldiers with the intent of shaming them for the release of a number of videos which the government has deemed harmful to the army's image rights groups say the bill is a stain on democracy and an attempt to conceal the reality of israel's occupation force it reports from western islam. the killing of abdel-fattah a reef in hebron in twenty sixteen became one of the most controversial incidents
10:21 pm
involving israel's army in recent years the reason the existence of this video showing soldier. shoot our sharif in the head as he lay on the ground which military court said happened more than ten minutes after the palestinian was first shot and disarmed while attempting a knife attack as our it was released last month after spending nine months in jail a new bill awaiting consideration by israel's parliament the knesset proposes a maximum ten years sentence for anyone recording similar videos the defense minister avigdor lieberman tweeted his support saying i.d.f. soldiers are subjected to attacks from those who act against the israeli people and tera supporters who try to humiliate the shame and harm them we will put an end to this but the proposed law comes in response to a series of videos recently seen as harmful to the israeli military's image the bill's wording though has been questioned it refers to the intent of the person recording a soldier's behavior being to injure their spirit or harm national security
10:22 pm
israel's attorney general has called the bill in its current form illegal if and when the bill does become lords understood it would be in a very different form the maximum sentence reduced from ten to three years if n.c. changed from filming or distributing images of soldiers to impeding them from carrying out their duty the head of the human rights group that circulated the hebron video says that doesn't mean the bill is being watered down rather that it's being incorporated into existing law now that can actually shift a norm and create this gray area in which it would be under the capacity of you know random soldiers or commanders to just claim that almost any photography is somehow struction of soldiers ability to carry out their duties. but selim says the eventual law could be used against media organizations as well as activists and send a message to soldiers that they can treat those recording them more a. simply it wouldn't however apply in the case of this video of an israeli sniper shooting another man near the gaza border fence of the celebrations that followed
10:23 pm
it was taken by a fellow israeli soldier the defense minister called for him to be punished under military law and for the sniper who fired the bullet to be awarded a medal are a force that al-jazeera west jerusalem a new study has found that u.s. civilians own more than forty percent of the world's guns despite making up just four percent of the global population a small arms survey found that out of one billion firearms around the world eighty five percent are in the hands of civilians ministries and law enforcement agencies hold the rest or can i speak to a cop from the small arms survey so you've made this remarkable finding that the u.s. in particular forty percent of the world's guns the civilians there seem to own how does this come about and what kind of things do that what kind of arms there. are the number itself didn't come about quickly it's the result of about ten years of work on the part of small arms survey blast two years especially we've devoted
10:24 pm
a lot of institutional attention to getting everything together for this the united states is obviously an extraordinarily important part of the overall picture but we did every country we could we did two hundred thirty countries and a lot of autonomous territories even so i mean in the us i mean is there any kind of from the the figures that you found him and is there any correlation between the number of civilians have and the levels of violence for moms can you make a direct connection. it's extremely difficult every country is very different and even in the united states there's a lot of variation among the fifty states in puerto rico guam so you find a lot of variation habits part of what makes america so difficult is you have an awful lot of relatively normal gun owners people who own two or three guns but the surveys also show they're all an awful lot of what american statistician's call super owners people who have forty firearms or more which in the united states of
10:25 pm
course can include things like some my automatic rifles for example or what about places like india and china isn't it just that they were in second and third place what kind of weaponry do they go for why do civilians decide to those kind of trees . well it makes a big difference just being a very big country. china and india both have relatively low levels of firearms ownership when you measure it see how many guns per one hundred in comparison side is that way they don't stand out at all in fact they look relatively innocuous but the sheer size of india and china mean that even when gun ownership is relatively rare the cumulative effect is enormous so you have tens of millions of firearms there because mostly it's a measure of just how big those societies are tell me about yemen that that that comes in terms of one hundred residents here it comes second to the u.s.
10:26 pm
with fifty two point eight guns per one hundred residents so although it was a small of a population that actually a high in a ship of guns there how can a very poor country that yemen has a population afford guns are they that cheap these days. firearms aren't that expensive and it's a culture we're going to ownership seems to be very important we have a broad number of estimates for yemen what everyone's agreed to is gun ownership there never was unusual and since the war broke out of course since two thousand and fourteen gun ownership is becoming even more commonplace there it's fair to say if you see an adult man there's a firearm very close by aaron copland you very much indeed to share in the results miss for seven thank you for people being killed and hundreds injured after a powerful earthquake hit japan's second city a saka minute huge six point one quake struck at the height of rush hour causing
