11:42 am
perhaps get across the line with some small margins and i think throughout this whole campaign and a lot of my press conference has a spike in about uncontrollable zz and there was a couple today that were. pretty hard to swallow and the epic final took place on center court of novak djokovic speed roger federer so we need 5th wimbledon title the match lost to just 5 minutes short of 5 hours loren smith reports with the tennis giants meeting in the final roger federer a new refused to make it 21 grand slam titles he'd have to achieve something he's never done in the previous 20 beats rafael nadal and novak djokovic the 1st set was a sign of things to come tight all the way eventually going to the world number one i. it sparks federer into life he responded dropping just one game in the 2nd was with joke of each would reestablish easily but federal wasn't forcing the match into

11:44 am
match had everything and could have call easily his way to try to take the good things out of this match you know tons of it. you know. and like similar to 08 maybe i will look back at it and think like well it's actually not that after all you know but for now it hurts and it should you know like every loss hurts here at wimbledon there were thousands in the celebrating a record 6 the victory in the british grand prix at silverstone the mercedes driver started his home race behind teammate felt that he bought us but got in front following a safety car incident on lap 20 and stayed on in front from there until the finish the closing laps provided some drama as the red bull of max for stepan and ferrari sebastian vettel crashed into each other but it was hamilton taking the applause from his home fans again at the circuit it's the 7th win in the 10 races this season and he's extended easily to 39 points in the f one drivers championship. you think you get used to something like that but i tell you it was like the 1st time

11:49 am
a group of democratic congresswoman. 18 months out of office spots former south african president jacob zuma is facing more corruption questions. and english than celebrated dramatic world cup win over new zealand. but we begin with new diplomatic efforts to end months of heightened tensions between iran and the united states iranian president hassan rouhani says his government would be willing to talk to the u.s. but only if washington lifts its economic sanctions and returns to the conditions of the 2015 nuclear deal or direct it was only when a big pair is a bully we have to stand up to it must stop being the bully we have always believed in top always right this hour right this moment if they stop the oppression if they
11:50 am
stop the beleaguered rence if they lift sanctions return to the table return to logic way already. well shortly after his comments european leaders who are signatories to the deal issued their own statements calling for dialogue between all the parties to resume in a joint declaration france germany and the u.k. said we are extremely concerned about iran's decision to store and enrich uranium beyond the authorized limits however they also said we believe that the time has come to act responsibly and to look for ways to stop the escalation of tension and resume dialogue the risks are such that it is necessary for all stakeholders to pause and consider the possible consequences of their actions and has more now from paris. it was clear in the statement from france britain and germany that they are
11:51 am
increasingly concerned about the future in the survival of the j c p o a now the 3 powers say that the 2015 iran deal should be supported they continue to support it they say it's the best deal out there to ensure regional security and curb iran's own nuclear ambitions but they say there is a real risk that this deal could collapse because of the ongoing pressure from the u.s. sanctions on the iranian economy now what they are asking for is for all sides to deescalate tensions to really carm the situation they also once again urge iran to reverse some of the steps it's taken recently to exceed some of the uranium enrichment limits that it agreed to under the 2015 deal they are not to break any more commitments that is made to the j c p a a and they say they will continue to work as hard as they can to try and find some sort of solution to all of this now
11:52 am
what we know is the french president a week ago spoke to the iranian president and said that the 2 had agreed to find some sort of climate or context for talks in the coming week so far we haven't heard anything more but in that elise a statement there was a date july the 15th now they lease are now downplaying that that date they say that it's not a deadline it simply shows that there is a sense of urgency and there is a real desire to try and find some way to break the deadlock and calm the situation we're going karla's a former deputy national intelligence officer for the transnational threats at the cia uses iran is taking steps to encourage the u.s. to return to its former position on the nuclear agreements. i think it's an astute step for iran to take because here we are talking about an offer to negotiate the substance of position that iran is suggesting or or trying to move back to
11:53 am
is really the status quo prior to the change by the united states towards iran withdrawing from the nuclear agreement and putting sanctions on iran it also is a stupid because it echoes or in forces or corresponds to position that the e.u. is taking which is that any negotiation is better than shooting and killing people which would have. fathomable. the potential consequences so from that perspective it's a useful thing in substance there's not a lot to it and the american response even from dennis ross who is no longer in america formal american official but for decades has been probably the premier american expert for the middle east. urges iran to stop its enrichment program and to stop its support for fundamentally the
11:54 am
hizbullah in lebanon and syria and then in yemen yemen and that is. not a position that iran is going to accept yours so substantively difficult diplomatically i think oh useful step from iran's perspective. u.s. president says under fire for a series of racially charged tweets against democratic congresswoman donald trump called them foreign born troublemakers and told them to go back to where they came from gabriel and this on the reports from washington d.c. what do you mean ization is not only with those families but it's also with the agents that we've had told to do this to these families their 1st time congresswoman and vocal critics of the u.s. president and it appears they've gotten under donald trump skin he took to twitter to say in part progressive democrat congress women who originally came from countries whose governments are
11:55 am
a complete and total catastrophe should go back to the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came however 3 of the congress women were born in the u.s. not elsewhere as he suggested alexandria cortez of puerto rican descent was born in new york ayana presley is from massachusetts and russia to tell you the palestinian american was born in michigan she responded to trump's attack on social media this is our country and no amount of heathfield bullying from the white house is going to change that we're going to fight back together and we're going to become stronger for it please know that i'll never back down no bully no kind of attack to silence me is going to work another target of trump congresswoman ileana omar was born in somalia came to the u.s. as a refugee when she was a teenager and became a u.s. citizen nearly 20 years ago omar responded to trump by tweeting mr president as
11:56 am
members of congress the only country we swear an oath to is the united states which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. the racially tinge tweets came on the same day trump said immigration officials would be conducting raids throughout the country to arrest any vict undocumented migrants with removal orders it stoked fear in immigrant communities of being caught up in a dragnet of mass deportations and earlier in the week trump threaten to go around the supreme court and demand people answer a question in next year's census on whether they are u.s. citizens analysts say it's all part of a troll pattern this is a president who once said that he called for the total and complete shutdown of muslims entering into the united states once referred to mexicans as the one start of the barack obama birth or controversy and so it's really important when you see
11:57 am
this sort of racism zina phobia massage any islamophobia coming from the commander in chief it's really important for minority communities here in the united states to act as intersectional allies to one another ensure that he's a one term president trumps anti immigrant and racially divided undertones in the run up to the 2016 election did not prevent him from becoming president he won anyway he now likely thinks that his latest rhetoric will not hurt his chances for reelection next year gabriel's on dough al-jazeera washington. former south african president jacob zuma is expected to testify at an inquiry into government corruption he was forced from office last year q receiving the mass looting of state funds and was it was jus to appear for certain several days it's not clear if you respond to the allegations reports.
