executive. issued a statement today she said she thanked all these people for expressing their opinion but she would not consider this opinion she would push ahead with her bill and she would not step down. this of course will most probably spark further protests and more anger in the city it is you've been covering these protests and we did hear from authorities that there were clashes last night between police and these protesters what can you tell us about that. yeah our own 12 o'clock when most protesters had left a group of students said that they would camp outside of the building you can see here behind me. the parliament the city's parliament until. wednesday that is when the bill is due to be discussed in let's go. and. then there are several world versions one version is that part of these people tried to storm
2:07 pm
the government headquarters which are just next to the parliament and were then dispersed by the police others say that when time according to the protests ended at 2359 at midnight the police dispersed the people who were gathering around and that erupted into clashes. it's both both things did happen it's hard to say which one was the 1st and then the clashes continued until you early morning their own 6 o'clock i think there was news that all everything out to be terminated around the streets around here. spending a reporting in hong kong for us thank you. let's get a round up now some other stories making news around the world an indian court has sentenced 3 hindu men to life in prison for their role in the rape and murder of an 8 year old muslim girl last year 3 others all police officers got 15 years in jail for destroying evidence the girl's death sparked outrage and inflamed religious

tension in indian controlled kashmir. international observers say sunday's presidential election in kazakhstan was tarnished by human rights violations the country's electoral commission says the winner of the vote is katherine jo marc tucker a handpicked successor of former president nursultan nazarbayev the election was overshadowed by the arrest of hundreds of opposition protesters. a falling crane has killed one person and injured several others in the u.s. city of dallas the crane collapsed into in a park. building during a storm crews searching the building found the body of a woman 6 other people were taken to the hospital. iran's foreign minister has said that his country will work with the european union to to save the 2015 nuclear deal that decision comes after talks with the german foreign minister in tehran as iranian counterpart zama jobs are reset the discussions have been frank and serious but he also warned against an economic war with the u.s.
2:09 pm
to. go to tehran and a correspondent for the news agency a.f.p. joins us hi i'm here at the talks between mass and a job at sorry seems to have seemed to have had some success what do you make of the words that we've heard coming from them today oh and thanks for having me well go for. you saw the pros. in to be going that. interview a little attention you know 2 men and. the 1st question was about israel and on a lot of the differences between the 2 made it even more significant because coming from the words that they say during the process it is both. resolved you could. feel what is expected from the european union to our own germany what were they. able to give a. clear understanding of what could offer what they didn't mention in the form
2:10 pm
that evolved it's been more than a year and all that happened so i mean from iran's perspective what is iran looking for what does it need to see from germany and europe to save the steel. although i do want to show us just what is wrong with its being able to sell its oil and its being able to have its banking relations without the utilize interference with that would be that is not the ideal and that's very hard to happen and that seems rather you could say close to impossible for europe to make happen because of the close financial relations and defenders they have on the u.s. market so your model is expecting europe to step in and be able to live on this commitment to the nuclear deal but it seems very unlikely that europeans would actually be able to do this especially if they are trying in other requirements or talks with just talking about iran's missile program or its regional policies which
2:11 pm
iran really again today that it won't be part of any negotiation on one of the talks all right i mean have a secret sponsor for the a.f.p. news agency in tehran thank you so much for joining us. now the deal was struck in 2015 between iran france germany britain russia china and the us it was meant to restrict iran's ability to make nuclear weapons in exchange for relief from economic sanctions but since donald trump pulled the u.s. out of the deal there's been rising tension between washington and tehran. iran nuclear deal requires parent to limit its atomic enrichment in verifiable ways so that it cannot make weapons and requires it to submit to international inspections . in return tehran is supposed to get relief from sanctions and gain access to frozen assets but the us has pulled out unilaterally and really imposed sanctions
2:12 pm
president obama made a deal the iran nuclear deal which was a terrible deal because it was a short term deal didn't do the trick and i was very much against it i was very much against the deal i terminated the deal on iran is a much different country today the u.s. has also sent additional warships to the middle east as part of a pressure campaign that some fear risks escalating into open conflict the other signatories to the nuclear deal insist they can still make it work french president emanuel has tried to project unity from the european side while accommodating washington. we do share some of the if we want to do 1st you want to be sure they don't get. meanwhile the re imposed economic sanctions have hit the iranian economy hard on just the employment situation is a catastrophe those who had a store had to close it and look for another job those who have studied need to look for a job but where where are they going to work. the broader danger should iran break
2:13 pm
completely from the agreement is that a new nuclear arms race will take place the u.s. recently announced it wants to renegotiate with iran but tehran says the u.s. has not shown good faith. whenever they stop cruelty against a nation that put aside the cruel sanctions fulfill their commitments and return to the negotiating table which they themselves left the road is not closed for them. the road is open how much. but as president trump has made clear over the past year the u.s. is unlikely to agree to any of that and trust among the parties is in short supply . iranian regime with this let's bring in our political correspondent simon young for some analysis on the story hi simon we heard there trust is in short supply this is a difficult delicate mission for the german foreign minister can he really ease
2:14 pm
tensions with iran here is it is really difficult he's going to see tehran with this message that you know there's still a bit of room for diplomacy that dialogue can work and asking them to stay with the iran nuclear deal but it doesn't really look as if he's had a lot of success in the press conference after his meeting with the iranian minister of foreign minister zarif the iranian said well you know the u.s. cannot expect to stay safe after launching an economic war and they also said whoever starts a war with us will not be the one who finishes it so pretty tough language there and worrying language given the fact that the united states has wrapped up its military posture in the region with an aircraft carrier and heavy bombers there and it's got its tough sanctions in place as well as well so it's not clear what the german foreign minister can do other than keep talking and yet come again we've
2:15 pm
heard from germany from the european union that they are committed to saving this nuclear deal despite the u.s. pulling out what is at stake here what happens if it unravels. i think if it unravels then the international community will looking for another way of solving the spec given the list tough rhetoric that would be a very worrying situation the security implications are serious for not just for iran but for the whole region of course iran is involved in the conflict in yemen and also the situation in syria and so on so you know who knows what they might do if they're sort of unleashed in this way there are also economic implications here as well germany all the european countries would like to see. the arabs of trade with iran. and of course u.s. sanctions mean the moment they're not doing nor able to do that they're trying to set up payments scheme a banking sort of work around to allow them to allow european companies to trade
2:16 pm
there but it's not really clear if that can actually ultimately be successful all right our political correspondent simon young with us thank you simon. now sudan's military has used tear gas to break up protests in the capital khartoum one report says 4 people were killed in the process the government was responding to a general strike organized by a group supporting democracy and opposed to military rule that strike has left shops closed and streets deserted. sudan's security forces patrolled the capital i mean to contain opposition protests have been stopping demonstrators from setting up makeshift roadblocks which are intended in part to slow soldiers down the opposition is responding to the military crackdown just days ago that left dozens dead. despite the dangers the protesters are pushing on. our demands have to be accepted completely. authentic and i don't want people who

2:22 pm
was finally applying sustained pressure to the race leader vettel 100 breaking. the german overshot a chicane and took a detour through the grass on reviewing the incident bryce marshall's deemed that the former world champ should have allowed the englishman to pass vettel was hit with a 5 2nd time penalty that meant that hamilton them aside his driver was the rice winner despite getting to the chicken flag 2nd the decision sealed a 5th race win of the season for the running champion. naturally it is not the way absolutely not the way i wanted to when i was pushing to the end to trying it must. force him into an error of the german stage his own unofficial people and protest hold no grudge. i think i've said enough you should ask the people what they think i think we had a great show. show some respect so yeah us the people hamilton
2:23 pm
will take a 63 point lead over the fatal to the next rice in the south of france. great day 3 of the women's world cup and france is done and the public fully. support has been following all the action for us i see me so australia took on italy yesterday a surprise is there well 1st and foremost the results because it was a huge shock for a strike and yet now everybody thought that they'd ease through this match against italy considering that they have many great players including superstar striker sam courier but it wasn't to be before a give away any more details it's probably better that we take a look at this report. australia were awarded an early penalty and a chance for a dream start captain samantha current took responsibility. fluffing her lines 1st before slotting home the rebound was a heavy touch from defending clint poking home allowed its release but i've been in
2:24 pm
a run i'm told in the 55th minute. was the strike is staying cool to draw her side level. with the game well into injury time it's really one of free kick. i've been in see i was under it's again to school and hand her side a dramatic late winner. the whistle went shortly after confirming that she won results it's a pill to swallow for dark horses australia. what went wrong there for australia it was more like what went right for it in the sydney to be honest it was let's not forget that italy in the women's game hasn't been a successful as the men will say over the past couple of decades in fact they
2:25 pm
haven't even qualified for a world cup in 20 years so the fact that they're even there you know is wonderful news for them and their coach bettany said that the reason why they did so well was because of the team spirit that really made a difference in the 2nd half in particular but there was so much drama in this game let's not forget as well that they actually took the lead twice but twice the v.a.r. denied italy that lead and came in that 95th minute so high drama there and what's happened in italy is that the game is really exploded in recent years you know it's a big footballing country but it's taken a while for really to take off in the women's game but we're really seeing this and it's going to be a great boost for the squad and they have you know great players among their ranks but also panic stations in australia because they weren't expecting this result whatsoever. all right the other mass a lot of people were walking watching yesterday was in beating scott was that an easy one it certainly wasn't done in fact has been
2:26 pm
a lot of criticism towards the england team and in particular phil neville he's the coach. it's been said that they looked quite sloppy that they you know sort of what we saw with the italy side in the 2nd half which was that they they work together now if we take a look here at the game itself. handball as we just gave england a chance to score from the penalty shot which they did to paris converted to make it one nil and then the lionesses double their lead before half time when white. on a loose ball in the box. certain got to go to 4 adults and pulled a goal back through player emsley in the 79th minute. but he held i have to confirm their victory not what i will say you. should be for england really are lacking a little bit of unity in their squad and they really need to improve let's not forget this is a team that finished 3rd in the last world cup all right hope. you sports with us
