copyright rules for web sites in a vote later today. hello i'm terry martin thanks for joining us. in the u.k. lawmakers have once again frustrated prime minister teresa mayes plans for leaving the european union on monday evening westminster voted to take control of the parliamentary timetable in order to influence the breaks that process they will now hold a series of votes on the country's departure from the e.u. in an effort to find a solution backed by a majority of m.p.'s the government there will not be bound by the so-called indicative votes earlier the prime minister may acknowledge that she did not have enough m.p.'s behind her breaks a deal which while makers of already reject it twice. but it is with great regret
that i have had to conclude that as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the house to bring back the deal for a third meaningful fight. i continue i continue to have discussions with colleagues across the house to build support so that we can bring the footprint for which this week and guarantee breaks it if we can the government made a commitment that we would work across the house to find a majority on a way forward. by mr theresa may there well let's cross over to london our correspondent standing by bigot this brags that process is becoming more confusing by the day can you explain to us what happened there in parliament last night and what's supposed to happen next well the whole breck's a process starts reason mekon find a way forward say in a really unprecedented move now palm and is trying to do this for their holding
what you already alluded to is the so-called indicative votes so they're trying to find an alternative to that have to resume and it's most likely to include some forms of soft of rates of maybe staying within the customs union even another referendum so it's numbed by ending for the government but also it's a reason may has said she will engage constructively with it because if she can just cannot get her own tree that has to be a way out of this and this might just point to one possible solution. is under growing pressure pressure because from all sides what are the chances that she will have to resign. well terrorism a really is in deep water and there seem to be so. you want to see how droll there's been such a frustration with her leadership in her own party now others say well you might
change the captain but you're still in the same storm and on the same ship so there isn't yet a concerted action to let her go we've talked to some london us and that's what they've had to say i don't think now is the right time change me to i think that just creates more confusion i don't think she's left well but i'm not sure that trying to put someone else in different presence here i'm not sure what that would achieve at this point personally i really don't think that's going to help matters whatsoever she's probably got a handle on absolutely everything that's going on and at some point we do have to trust way. yes or a little embarrassing i would like to see her go almost immediately i'm not sure whether it would improve things but i think i'm a personal i'm a remainer so i want to stay in the e.u. and i want to see someone you know lead that will actually consider that as an alternative. was you can hear this get to
cism in people's voice because we don't know if anything would actually be cvs and it's just such a short period of time that's really left at the moment that you know that it might just not be the right time to change leader right now ok well several of teresa mayes junior ministers have resigned from the cabinet even if she herself theresa may doesn't resign or government just end up collapsing around her. well that is indeed absolutely an option how government is in deep trouble is in detroit since the wrecks of presence is absolutely stock so is monte speculation speculation as to whether its reason may might even survive the end of the week so we shall see there thank you so much steve barrett must in london.
to the middle east now where cross border fighting between israeli armed forces and militants in the gaza strip has entered a second day israel says intercepted dozens of rockets fired from hamas controlled gaza balling targets in response this latest violence comes after a surprise rocket fired from gaza hit a house near tel aviv and despite an announcement by hamas monday night of a ceasefire brokered by egypt. ceasefire appeared to collapse almost as soon as it was brokered israel said its ion dome rocket defense system intercepted several launches with most others falling into open fields earlier in the evening a rocket aimed at the border town of sderot cut through defenses and destroyed a home no casualties were reported. the tit for tat attacks were triggered by a rocket that obliterated a residential home outside tel aviv in the early hours of monday israel said that
rocket was launched by hamas the militant group that rules gaza the homes residents were awoken by air raid sirens and managed to flee before the rocket crashed through the roof and exploded. this is the real crisis and i just hated any of my family and if we hadn't got to the shelter in time i would now be carrying my family by nightfall the israel defense forces were retaliating with rocket attacks striking targets in gaza hideouts they say that's how mass militants. the ceasefire reportedly brokered by egypt and accepted by hamas late on monday was never confirmed by israeli officials the rocket attacks through the night show that if it ever really existed the cease fire is at best shaky and at worst over before it even took hold. over to our correspondent tanya kramer who's standing by with the latest in jerusalem tanya one side in this conflict says
a ceasefire is in place what can you tell us. yeah that's true there were are already at ten o'clock last night local time reports of the ceasefire being focused by egypt and hamas put out a statement that a mosque and the other militant faction were just here to a cease fire and would meet quiet for quiet meaning that it would hold just as. trikes also broke its attacks into southern israel would be a hole to the militant factions but it went on a couple of hours but for the last two three hours since the early morning actually it has been quiet this is obviously a tense quiet and we have to wait and see how the next hours have been developed egypt has in the past already broke it successfully. so it seems to be the case at this time whether it will hold is another question tanya stay with us we're going
to come back to you in just a minute we first though want to take another take a look at another development. the cross border violence comes as the united states reverses decades of policy in the middle east by officially recognizing the golan heights as israeli territory u.s. president don't trump trailed the decision on twitter last week during a visit by israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu in washington trump sign a proclamation calling for recognition of israeli sovereignty over the territory another go of heights or an area of strategic importance in the middle east. the occupied golan heights are a mountainous plateau overlooking israel lebanon syria and jordan until nine hundred sixty seven the golan heights belong to syria during the six day war israel captured and occupied the territory after the arab israeli war in one thousand nine hundred three a un observer force has been deployed to monitor the cease fire line and
a separation area between the two sides israel's annexation of the golan heights in one nine hundred eighty one was never recognized by any other country until the u.s. did so last week u.n. security council resolutions called for a withdrawal and declared israeli sovereignty null and void pending negotiations with syria several attempts to negotiate an agreement went nowhere today around forty thousand people lived there about half hours really settlers and the other half are druze and arab minority who mostly consider themselves syrian the plant is higher elevations offer military advantages israel's military can look deep inside syrian territory if syria held the golan heights its forces would enjoy a commanding position over northern israel the hilly area just next to the sea of galilee is also an important water source after the syrian civil war started in two thousand and eleven the security aspect of the area has become even more important
israel says that iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah both supporting the assad regime have entrenched themselves close to israel's boundary. so let's go back to china grave and out in jerusalem time here president trapes decided to unilaterally recognize israel's sovereignty over the go hides was this move widely expected and how could it affect security of a region. in is it at least they had been indications that the e.u.'s ministration would lean to would. recognizing israel's serenity so that was expected but the tweet still last week on thursday from president tom came a bit as a surprise it was warmly welcomed here by all parties that had been part also of the election campaign you can offer mr netanyahu compared to this there is a consensus in israel that this territory territory should stay. israeli territory
some had said you know this was an interesting timing because it is an election campaign it was an election gift also by mr trump and to mr mintz mr netanyahu could say that he had such good relations with the u.s. administration and you know leaders are very close but at the same time of course there has been also a lot of criticism across the region. decision it is against international laws against u.n. security council resolutions and the u.s. . had together with israel the only country and recognizing the occupied golan heights as israeli territory and trying you know good talking to you there thank you for bringing us up to date turkey w.'s tanya kramer in jerusalem. you're watching news still to come a window of hope for abused women in jordan we take you inside the country's first protective shelter for women whose lives are at risk from family members.
first let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world today chinese president xi jinping and his french counterpart a man well might call have held talks in paris china announced a huge purchase of their craft from air bus and voiced hopes for a quote fair political relationship with china president she's due to meet with other european leaders in paris as well. the pentagon has authorized one billion u.s. dollars of funding for president donald trump's controversial border wall defense officials said the money would pay for roughly ninety kilometers of fences and infrastructure along the us mexico border in february trump declared a state of emergency after congress rejected his budget plans mexican president andres manuel lopez obrador has urged the vatican and spain to apologize
for the conquest of central america's indigenous peoples five hundred years ago standing with his wife in front of my ruin. request would prompt historical reconciliation. over the last few days tens of thousands of europeans have been protesting a proposed reform of copyright law in the european union they're worried about how the new rules will affect free speech on the internet today the european parliament is set to vote on the deal so what's at stake well right now if a user uploads text video music or photos to a platform like youtube that person is responsible for respecting copyright restrictions you want to reverse this principle the new legislation would make platform operators liable for the content on their sites and they would face fines
if laws are broken now the internet is the intent rather is to force sites like facebook and you to to monitor what users publish but critics fear that web sites will end up using automatic filters that also block material that's not restricted opponents of the bill say that could have a chilling censorship effect online. takes a closer look. never again see is what the demonstrate just as shouting in front of the conservative party headquarters in berlin many are young and this is their first protest and they fear for their internet they believe the government is limiting their freedom. to have a small you cheap channel myself that might get delete you don't something because a place fitted to deletion censorship be it and things the government has underestimated the fear of article thirteen she's a c.d.u.
politician herself but she cites with the protests this. and if manchild a lot of people you too must have raised this issue people who normally don't share their political voice but now in this context they do and they reach so many people these are so huge discussions that until now have barely been considered and this debate. politicians have long ignored. but to the demonstrators they are heroes julian alone has more than five million subscribers and has called for protest by a music video that. somebody said that you. know people. other you tube stars to have suddenly become political tennis but ominous calling you represented to us and asking them to stop the reform. and once a prevent upload photos from deciding what makes it to the internet.
is going to machine work out the precise legal classification of something within a few seconds in billions of cases many of which would otherwise go to court in germany. i know stuff or has a completely different view he is an author who wrote the screenplay for a film about resistance fighters off the show and he has found all kinds of illegal copies on youtube. this means artists like him loose income the in the digital world we actually are nothing because everything gets stolen. that's why pinus office in favor of filters and police the opponents are being encouraged you chip itself has indeed warned of censorship and called for people to protest as seen here and so now is the time to speak up. the background is the major platforms with their economic interests
stirring up the kids and telling them the internet break be taken away from you or you'll no longer be able to have your own channels will no longer be able to advertise lipstick complete rubbish forget. whether to fear a conviction tens of thousands took to the streets of germany to protest upload features and more and more parties now share the concerns of the demonstrate to us . it could be that politicians have suddenly heard new arguments but it could also be that the pressure of future was and young people made the difference no politician wants the voters of tomorrow and no party wants to appear ignorant on the issues. this argument will continue to rage at least until the vote in the european parliament both on the internet and on the streets.
of. his list with reporters without borders thanks for being with us this morning so opposition to this copyright reform law is particularly fierce in germany we just saw tens of thousands of people there out on the streets why are people so concerned here i think first of all everybody realize now that in the internet everybody can be a copyright. everybody can be creative and therefore everybody can be kind of affected by this law and especially i think the outlook filters raise concerns and i think these protesters are all right because my organization has already a lot of experience with upload photos and just the problem of these outlook for the us as you also explained already they are not good in like recognizing all these nuances on the internet so because there are a lot of exceptions for for copyright law also if you have
a quota if you set tie you can also use. pictures or videos that have a copyright and yeah i think people are now concerned that they are not able to use the internet as today so there's a possibility that some things might get filtered that shouldn't that filter but as we saw in a report there there are screenwriters who who see their work being uploaded with no authorization over and over again the proposed law is intended to provide more effective protection for copyright holders is not a good thing it is a good thing i mean. my organization protects free press freedom globally and of course we also fight for the rights of jolly's who are of course by definition very much concerned about their copyrights i think no one in this debate like disagrees with the aim to protect copyright holders the question is just how do you do it. well we just have a lot of experience already with upload photos and i think. they are just too vague
and too broad in fulfilling the same ok assuming this reform law passes in its current form who is really going to be affected most so theoretically and i think also in practice everybody because on the internet everybody can be a couple right will they you and me like if we we want to share something on social media or we need kind of pictures and everybody kind. can be effective because everything will be filtered. and could take you know i think of calls that yeah creative but also john lists will be affected because the by definition we kind of produce more content and them yeah we have already cases in which john we're not able to upload things because they were blocked due to these upload photos so how do you see this playing out do you think the that this law will actually as proposed law will actually come into effect one of the next steps. well
the next step today well it will be i don't know what what will be the results today of the palm and has to vote for it if they agree european member states have to adopt that as well and that there will be two years for everybody kind of to enforce the law so i think it won't be kind of a dramatic change but i think it will change the way how we use the internet it if it really comes into force tenure thank you very much for bringing us up to date on this developing story daniel must book a tech journalist with reporters without borders now to jordan where years of campaigning for the government to better protect women threatened by domestic abuse is beginning to bear fruit under the country's crime prevention law it's been called in practice to jail women risk of all or killings for example
supposedly for their own protection but last year the government probably opened a secret shelter for such women as our reporters found out is giving women hope of starting a new life in safety. it's been years since my last saw her husband but the abuse she suffered at his hand is still fresh in her mind. when the beating got really bad i would run away to the neighbors when my husband suspected i was having an affair with my neighbor so he beat me again and strangled me. authorities feared minutes husband might kill her in the name of family honor so they put her in prison. the forty two year old mother of eight was incarcerated for seven months under georgians crime prevention law which has long been used to indefinitely jail women consider to be at risk of so-called honor killings supposedly for their own protection. the hope of
a jailed me with women facing the death sentence women convicted of drug crimes were the ones on death row are hard to believe the whole lawyers were able to get more out of prison after her husband left the country but the circumstances of her release are extremely rare. a woman is usually told that someone must come and bail her out in guarantee has safety usually a brother or a father her son or her husband and that's difficult because these are often the same people who were threatening her they had to do all. it is estimated that hundreds of women have been jailed under the pretext of protection with some spending over a decade in prison but after years of campaigning things are finally starting to change. according to the government cases like more that won't have to spend any more time in prison for their own protection in twenty eighteen the jordanian ministry for social development opened this home known as dot m n a the purpose of
it is to house women whose lives are under threat by members of their family today we're being given a rare look into the home and the lives of its residents. the shelter subject around the clock protection and surveillance its location is kept secret. as one of the first to be transferred from jail to the shelter after spending almost six years in prison. for safety reasons we cannot give details about the twenty six year old story only that her life is under threat from multiple members of her family. when i arrived here for two days i could not believe that i could just go out on the balcony and see people the world and life it had been almost sixty years and i had not seen the site and i had not seen people. shelter director does that insists this is not just a place for the women to eat and sleep here they also receive psychological
counseling legal aid and vocational training with the aim of reintegrating them into society children up to the age of six can remain with their mothers recorded for ted and when a woman comes to us she's entering an unfamiliar situation with let her know that being here is voluntary one of her choices on our first task is to comfort her help and once that happens working with her becomes much easier. since its opening twenty women have been transferred from prison to the shelter around twelve still remain in prison but the ministry intends to gradually move them here as well three of the women transferred from prison have left the shelter after they were deemed to no longer be in danger if a woman wants to leave beforehand she's informed of the risks and cannot be held against her will. my goal is to one day be able to leave and find a suitable place to lead to more i do not want to be threatened any more who had to go in there you heard the opening of the shelter has been hailed as
here's what's coming up on the going to sleep so much movement in the. mental side here when. it's time to take a look at what all that means for the type of clothes. going to sleep every weekend here on t w. for. me president of iran. head of the rwandan patriotic front to. the rebel army and to the one nine hundred ninety four genocide wasn't it when little in the roof there was and when to do you. need to reinforce it it doesn't need this but does that mean he was not floating in a. controversial leader to success is beyond question.
