6:03 pm
not commented on this crisis and then elaborate fashion over the last few days which has been questioned but otherwise of course the whole country has been anticipating the return even at the waca border itself crowds of locals had gathered through the day because it wasn't clear exactly when he would be coming to there was at least a five hour d.-day the reports are that it was a procedural deal either there were documentation issues that were that what caused it and of course the crowds eventually didn't pan out by the time the pilot actually managed to come through the border but right after he came through there was a brief there was a brief press briefing by the indian air force which basically just said that he had to be taken for a medical checkup they did not take further questions but from the wish was that we were able to see it looks like the pilot came back and the first thing he said once across the water was that it was good to be home. and that certainly listening to not pakistan says his release was a gesture of these but that hasn't stopped the shelling along the line of control
6:04 pm
in the mission that's the defacto border between the two countries in kashmir. yes some of the wild this release has led and it is expected to lead to a deescalation in the tensions that have been building over the last few weeks that there's no way to say that there is peace in the kashmir valley all along the line of control today which lies between india administrate kashmir and pakistan administered kashmir there have been firing in india agnes to push me today in an encounter in the complot or district and pushed me for indian soldiers lost their lives so clearly there's no simple solution at hand simply because of this release and india continues to allege that pakistan is not doing enough to fight terror pakistan released this indian pilot as a gesture of peace but india says that pakistan has to do far more to be taken seriously even the aerial strike by india that led to further escalation of these tensions india said it was at the muhammad camp now the gesture moment gleamed of
6:05 pm
terror attack in the push me in the district on february fourteenth which led to the loud loss of forty indian soldiers alive and that is actually what has been behind this entire escalation while baucus on the other hand says that it is taking all the steps and that there is no infrastructure of terror on its soil that it is supporting both countries on contradictory views and while this julies is a welcome step deescalation over all all of the tension between the two countries is not going to be so simple and we finish on this have been some very tense days for the two nuclear neighbors what is the mood like on the ground what are the people of india and pakistan saying. well i'm with are when the tension started both sides were calling for action they were quarreling in the indian side was calling for action against pakistan because the terrorists right the pakistani side was calling for a hit back against india after india's aerial strike but once tensions really began
6:06 pm
to escalate between the two nuclear powered neighbors there was also the hashtags the north toward trending on twitter off from board sites there were civilians coming out and saying that this must stop now even in pakistan there were little marches and rallies calling for the release of the indian pilot so of course the general sentiment right now is off relief that the indian pilot has been released there's also believes that there's no further escalation but as i was mentioning before a true deescalation off tension between the two countries would be if talks are restructured around me that's what india has to fear and pakistan of course also waiting for india to come to the table on that matter. jest did obvious correspondent in delhi thank you very much now india's ambassador in germany and looked at that that the join me in the studio earlier i started by asking girl for her reaction to pakistan's decision to release the pilot we are happy that pakistan has taken the decision the solution to
6:07 pm
release when come under a benign than. we had objected very strongly to. the vulgar display that pakistan had done of an injured personnel of the indian air force. which was not in accordance with international humanitarian law and the geneva conventions and we are happy that. they pakistan assured this maturity to take this the step to announce the release of. i mean come under them and has returned to india but to what extent will it deescalate tensions between the two countries. if we can just go back a little bit to why we are at the situation today. we are at the situation because of a very important reason of terrorism. you would be aware that that
6:08 pm
this immediate action took place because a pakistan based organization the jaish e mohammed and. which took responsibility for the attack launched an attack in. in jammu and kashmir on february fourteenth more than forty of our security personnel were kicked. india asked pakistan as we have been repeatedly doing to address this issue to capture the people who were convicted to bring them to justice. pakistan did not react in fact they completely ignored the situation with them had. intelligence reports with suggested and these were credible intelligence reports that the jaish
6:09 pm
e mohammed was planning another attack now in the face of pakistan's absolute refusal to act the only option left to us was to attack the jaish e mohammad. now our think was it was nonmilitary it was not an attack on pakistan we attacked no military installations it was a counterterrorism operation in a very remote part of india which of pakistan where there were no civilian populations. that there was a pleasure to have you with us on the w thank you very much. turning out to somali with police and the captain over the shoes says an almost twenty four hour battle with extremists is over special forces reportedly killed all the fight is who laid siege in the building next to a hotel they've bombed on thursday night that bombing
6:10 pm
a set of course heavy casualties. and not have chaos right in the center of mogadishu people flee for their lives just after an explosion in the busiest area of the somali capital the target hotel macao. a luxury hotel in impoverished mogadishu house about his targeted before last night it was ablaze after a car bomb exploded at its kites. while i was driving in market street suddenly i saw a speeding luxury car heading towards a hotel and the explosion rocked the whole area. for residents of mogadishu it was a horrifying night. we're being told the man who made this video in judah ho not a fighting just a hundred meters from his apartment where he took shelter. and this was the same in the newly opened library mogadishu a symbol of hope for somalians who have endured so much violence for decades now it
6:11 pm
has been badly battered and so too has the confidence of somalians. i can't express in words how anxious and shocked i was that he is what was left behind it took nearly a whole day for the security forces to put an end to the militants attack al-shabaab has repeatedly shown it can hit the center of mogadishu now after this latest violence somalians i get angry at the government which seems on to stop major attacks like this one from occurring and joining me on the line from the get issue is journalist up to aziz below the is the echoing the siege has ended what's the latest you can tell us from there. well you work at the siege and you measured the goal security forces announced that they put an end to the siege that lasted more than twenty hours and i'll be just one of the longest running attacks by
6:12 pm
militant group al-shabaab mogadishu now one of the reasons as to why it took so long for security officials to neutralize the al-shabaab gunmen who remain holed up in that building is because it's not just one building where the militant group say the targeted market has become a motel but inside after the explosion the militants. entered into a different building blocks around the same motel and that is one of the reasons why two security forces a long time to be able to neutralize the attackers we don't know the number of the attack as yet but as we speak a white now security forces are neutralized all the taxes to do to situation now under control the whole building the old furniture is now under police control and the local business community are now back to their pledges counting their losses a lot doesn't billions of dan attack us to being targeted expecting up all announcements from the minutes of security officials in the coming hours right now
6:13 pm
look you know we've heard a report that people are getting angry there with the government for not being able to stop such attacks what is the government have to say. well the minister of information did speak to journalists two hours before the signal to get over. the militants but despite the looting a large territory in the country continues to remain a threat in the country and this is one of the reason why locals in the country because one thing the president of somalia mohammed of the life of marjah wanted to office he promised the residents of somebody's got he will be able to and the al-shabaab militancy in the next two years the two years good has officially ended on more brazen attacks on high end hotels in the capital next to the presidential politics using government manages so that is one reason why to get the public and the reason also the public and that is because times are mainly targeted on the video they will continue to bear the brunt of these conflicts and of long as they
6:14 pm
don't see any major improvement in the roads of the capital especially mark i'll recover mark that has become a blood clot in recent months the thing that the government is not doing much talk of security on the job. in politics forgotten that al-shabaab remains alive and attacking civilians in mind so they're calling for immediate action on an end to the bloodbath in mogadishu. in mogadishu thank you very much for that update from there. let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world tens of thousands of people have been protesting across algeria against the country's president and his bid for a fifth still in office in the capital algiers demonstrators faced off against security forces while trying to reach the presidential palace president of the aziz a beautifully car has been in power since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and

6:17 pm
the right place for us. around half a million jews live in france the third largest community behind israel and the us last year there were more than five hundred anti-semitic offenses here in increase of around seventy five percent. flossy califano president of the umbrella organization representing france's jewish community is also alarmed he says the real figures are much higher as not every offense is registered he's most concerned for the young. is awful zarif we're noticing that in some regions jewish children are no longer going to public schools they're being pulled out because they can't have a normal school day they're being insulted and their physical safety can't always be guaranteed system cleavage. back in the synagogue young ballerinas are practicing for a big performance. the synagogue offers jewish children an afterschool program

6:19 pm
the group with the most influence on the powerful if you saw. a launch on them says he will never conceal the fact that he's jewish despite the dangers loser make issues it is really true that i've never hidden the fact that i'm jewish and i won't do that now when i go to the synagogue for sure but i will my kippah and i will continue to do. so little real. but when it came to the question of whether he would let his own children wear a key part in public in line couldn't give us an answer. francis ulti only european country that has seen a rise in anti semitic incidence did obviously rupert read a spoke to israel's ambassador to germany about his concerns over the issue. mr ambassador not only in france also in germany we see rising anti semitism rising numbers of anti jewish attacks how big is the problem from your point of view i
6:20 pm
think any form of manifestation of anti semitism should be of concern not only to to israelis but germany in general and to the essential democratic and tolerant nature of german society insults immigration minister dr golland has urged especially the jewish people in france to come home saying that it's not safe anymore for jews in france and in europe is not a solution to the problem look i i think it's very clear israel is always being a homeland for the jewish people and any jew who feels that they want to make ali and i would always want to somebody who's made that step that every jew should come because he is coming for positive reasons or not because he feels that he's been pushed out of his country and i don't think that that is the solution in the sense that we have to first and foremost look at the anti semitic activities
6:21 pm
and what needs to be done to stop those because even if somebody will get up and leave and go through israel you still need to deal with anti semitism so you have to look at the whole situation in a much more holistic approach germany has more or less freshly installed. special commission to combat anti semitism the german government doing enough to establish jewish life in germany well that's a very good point in the sense that his title is not only to combat anti semitism but promote jewish life in germany and i think that that is of incredibly strong importance to the german leadership and obviously we are fully supportive of that effort and i think it shows again the strength of. german society that we can overcome things that have happened in the past and can build a better future for our peoples as we can see in many different areas but definitely i feel that. not enough can be done there has to be very clear
6:22 pm
responses not just condemnations but clear actions to prevent and to to make sure that this criminal activity is checked is turned off law enforcement in the field i think there clearly needs to be more in the sense that the challenges in all of the different areas as i've said in different contexts in different venues but also given the history of the internet and the possibility of moving on social media anti semitic. tropes and stereotypes i think this is creates an ever expanding need for greater control mr ambassador thank you so much thank you. that was jeremy issacharoff israel's ambassador to germany talking to my colleague rupert. if we're not being offered it at some other news from around the world staying with israel israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu has said he is
