5:02 pm
a day of tragedy there are no other words with which to describe what actually happened there is no justification for the killing there is no excuse it serves no one it certainly does not serve the cause of peace i have ways heavy today as they begin by expressing my condolences to the families of those killed yesterday and in the last six weeks of demonstrations in gaza well meantime u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley defended israel's response to the protests in gaza take a listen no country in this chamber would act with more restraint than israel has in fact the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained those who suggest that the gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the american embassy are sorely mistaken rather the violence comes
5:03 pm
from those who reject the existence of the state of israel in any location. such a mood that was the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley well in the mean time the situation on the ground in palestinian territories remains very tense one man has been killed today in clashes with israeli forces on the gaza border it was also violence in the west bank town of bethlehem where israeli soldiers fired tear gas to disperse small groups of protesters at least fifty nine palestinians have been killed in the past two days alone. the tiny kramer is in gaza for you a tiny what is going on right now where you are. well i'm here at one of the gathering points where also the demonstrations took place yesterday and raef witnessing all over the afternoon people coming here. the governing today of the protests the small here in the afternoon but still as you said one person has been
5:04 pm
killed and another part along the border and some clashes reported from there and what we've been seeing here is that drones and yeah and then they're dropping. people so the situation yes quite volatile it's through it i would say it's not as many people as yesterday. gathering at the border area right on time a stunning loss of life that we've seen yesterday entire families in mourning today what's it like being in gaza. well that's right at today's the day of the funeral and i talk to people and they say we still have to comprehend what happened on monday because the high number of people who were killed and also all the high number of people who were injured and some of them have very severe injuries that has really shocked people so you know people here that don't really know what is
5:05 pm
there to come they're saying they don't know how a mass who's controlling the gaza strip ruling the gaza strip how they would react what they would make out there some reports that egypt is trying to mediate to calm down the situation and these are reports for now and people really want to see a change you know that these protests are not for nothing so at the moment it's rather uncertain i want to happen next here tanya talk to us a little bit about the geography of gaza because it's very difficult for far to understand how cut off this sliver of land is. but gaza is surrounded by a fence and there are two pedestrian crossings theoretically. you know should be open for people but at the crossing to egypt and rough it's most of the time close it opens very sporadically sometimes two days a month sometimes it's closed for a month and the other crossing with israel where people would go you know to what's
5:06 pm
the west bank you also need a permit from the israeli authorities and most of the people don't get these permits you have almost two million people there here in this territory there's another crossing of course for goods but that has also been closed last week for couple of days because it was a demonstration at the protest by palestinian protests and now it has opened again so it's a very enclosed area and even plus we can go in as journalist you know in the morning because certain time in the afternoon the crossing is closing and then you're here you can't go anywhere and this is the feeling that. the half special young people i've been talking to they say if you haven't been traveling follow a night for the past and yes. as long as disposer has been going on the right time and you have filed that report exactly portraying what to people have been telling you for now thank you so much for your continued coverage because as tanya has been
5:07 pm
reporting people in gaza have been living under a blockade for nearly twelve years many describe it as living in an open air prison eerily or a tiny a kramer met with students in the territory and she asked them about their hopes and fears for the future a niece of who on his way to training in the east of the gaza strip sport of those him to switch from the pit to reality of around him. n e studies english literature at university in gaza city language is his key to the world and the country said he has yet to visit. yet it will be difficult to say what you want to look to the future finish school find a job find a place to live get married but i watch there's no hope there's no hope in augusta because the only thing is to finish and travel that is a little subtle thomas look at twenty three a nice has only travelled abroad once
5:08 pm
to neighboring egypt the protests in gaza an issue at university and these things the demos porton but also too dangerous to head and will the solution is that there should be some ease from the israeli side for the gaza strip a meaning that they open the border crossings and that you know travel to provide them with employment so that they are able to work and to pay attention to something else that is still really looked after as a ten year gaza's tide borders on inescapable reality for most people here for more than twelve years israel and egypt have sealed off the hamas controlled territory. nearby at the islamic university usma and. looking for new stories about everyday life for the beauty of the huddy twins have made a name for themselves on social media and if isn't that then the corn field of vision is to put content on the internet that shows gaza city as
5:09 pm
a normal city and not a place of war where people are just terrorists and troublemakers he and even her on the gaza are is not like this and we are known for it these architect to students have also from the demonstration taking place on gaza's borders they say they support the post has because they have put back on the agenda and raised the issue of the right of free turn for palestinian refugees their own grandparents fled to gaza in one nine hundred forty eight. but it's been a mystery that's allowed when it comes to the return much is from the moment they started i absolutely did not expect them to be this big i was very surprised with how people got involved in the mess even people who would not be very much into such activity has. always miss it out but. the protests along the border between gaza and israel have been ongoing for seven weeks israel says hamas is straight into demonstrations but the news and his friends say that young people
5:10 pm
have their own reasons for protesting they feel they don't have much left to lose. most of the youths would leave if the border crossings were to open there's no future here so your life is abroad if you stay here it means that you would use expires i lost thirteen years of my life like that. what i looked nomic circumstances and the crossing points these are the aspects that i need to change the most i wish i would see them change everybody wishes the same. they want things to get better and to have the prospect of a normal life to elusive goes that gaza's younger generation has dreamed about for years. want to tell you now about some of the other stories making news around the world. iranian foreign minister mohammad javad zarif says he's also a mistake that his country can work with europe to salvage the iran nuclear deal well that's after what he called a constructive meeting in brussels with the e.u.'s top diplomat become greeny serif
5:11 pm
is on a diplomatic tour to secure support for the pact after the us pulled out of the iran nuclear deal last week. russia has unveiled a new bridge to the crimean peninsula territory it annexed from ukraine three years ago russian president vladimir putin drove a truck across the bridge as part of the opening ceremonies ukraine's prime minister said the bridge is a violation of international law it's still claims crimea has its own territory. germany's coach has unveiled a provisional squad today that he hopes will defend their world cup title in russia and our very own and leroy shirts from our sources joins us now to talk us through the line of who's in who's out while the biggest talking point is obviously manuel neuer who's in after his injury kept him on the sidelines in september he hasn't played a game so obviously that's
5:12 pm
a very controversial pick and he might still not go to the world cup because on june fourth they're actually going to cut the squad again and they have three keepers now they have four keepers now sorry but they need to cut down to three so will be kevin top and then of course there's mario gazza who didn't make the squad and news piteousness who was in the squad instead of some who doesn't has never ever played for the german national team and now he's in the provisional squad for the world cup that must be very exciting for the super exciting and there's a first time for everything so as good luck to him we now have live talking about germany's chances of defending world title. i'm too young to vote because we're the defending world champions i mean when the confederation's comes in you seem to love me is going to go for us has to be to win the title we want to reach the maximum and that's what the atmosphere in the training camp during our travels will be about when you slog on because guys and i think we all possess the determination of motivation and a competitive enough people to get to win this title again and bring the company to
5:13 pm
germany you know not certainly is this the team that's going to be able to defend the title they're definitely the team to beat i mean they have such squad depth and also so much talent in that squad and it can be very very difficult to get past germany the only flaw they might have is that their attack is not as great as some of the other countries like you have brazil where you have neymar where you have for me in your continual here france with big. greaseman i mean these are all very very talented players in attack and germany i mean they have team of anna and the newspaper gomez but you know they're non you know they're not as experienced and not as dangerous in the final third of the pitch really are still secure victories so maybe that won't be too much of a vulnerability let's talk about at the end about this controversy regarding this photo op has that there was that is storm in a teacup in the end i mean a little bit so ms it isn't going to go on met with turkish president at a gun in
5:14 pm
a hotel in london on sunday and that was obviously very controversial in germany people want wild over i mean first they asked for them to be taken off the national team which is kind of extreme and then i mean they even went so far as calling them traitors are saying they have to decide between their two nationalities which is a little bit harsh because i mean they're also turkish of turkish descent right so you can't really hold that against them that they feel for both countries and in the end they did make the team or not they made the team absolutely and some of them really play a role there anyway all right emily russia thank you so much. and we're going to wrap things up now with some colorful scenes from kioto japan where revelers there have celebrated the festival. with siri the event is one of the city's three main animal festivals that centerpiece is a march featuring hundreds of people decked out in costumes from the ancient hey on arrow it's
