cup thanks to a record setting performance by striker harvey milk. i'm called aspen thanks for joining us nearly 2000000 people have been rallying in hong kong demanding the resignation of the city's pro beijing leader kerry lam she bowed to pressure and apologized to the public for her handling of the proposed bill that would allow extraditions to mainland china or democracy demonstrators want that bill scrapped altogether they worry the proposed law is one of many steps to chip away at hong kong's freedoms and legal autonomy. i i have to more than a week of massive protests the human tide showed no sign of abating it was kerry less. 2nd back step in as many days she admitted that the law had led to conflict
and distress but still hong kong people don't feel lam went far enough. right up there i'm here to condemn the police violence against us it's unacceptable that the police define our demonstration last wednesday as a riot. lambe even justifies the police violence as righteous measures and that's why i'm here to urge her to step down getting our order came out today to urge the government to release people arrested in mass clashes last wednesday actions speak louder than words we want concrete action from her but not a statement that the font and so i out they just jogging out the republic angle is still seeds following violent clashes on wednesday when police used tear gas rubber bullets and bean bag rounds to disperse chan's of thousands of protestors that's why you don't hear the peace must apologize for using excessive force and the
situation is still unacceptable and the stupidest withdraw and what she does is just model through half heartedly now it appears that nothing short of carry lem's resignation will make the people back down. joining me now in studio ban hard botches a senior chinese expert at the battles money institute here in berlin i mean just looking at those pictures sue 1000000 people they estimate marched on sunday in hong kong can you put that number in perspective mean is that unprecedented essentially for these kind of protests and is totally unprecedented 2000000 people in hong kong is more than a quarter of the population that's what the population of hong kong i mean about $7000000.00 fully equipped and would be $20000000.00 in germany or $90000000.00 in the u.s. or $300000000.00 in the people's republic of china for that matter so it's huge. bait wants kerry lamb to resign that was why they were out there what are the chances of that happening. i think politically kerry is pretty much done
for the interesting thing is it will be hard for beijing to replace you can't really imagine kerry lamb going around opening in the gods of giving university commencement speeches after this huge you can see her traveling abroad she was due to come to germany in a couple of days and canceled that trip of course the tricky thing though is. if they choose a new leader for hong kong the whole issue of how this leader is chosen not by the people aging is going to come up again and that is what triggered the umbrella revolution in 2014 and they don't want this topic to cook up again so kerry may have to sit it out for. this bill it was controversial it's now been postponed indefinitely they say but you know those protesters aren't they're not celebrating about that right i mean they say the basic afraid that this
could just come back at a later date they might bring this bill back what are the chances of that. i think that is going to happen the bigger story is that china wants to get control of the communist party is not very fond of the special rights. and off to every protest in the pots maging has come back with more repressions with pressuring protesters they've always tighten their fist and the question is how long can they keep tightening their fists before they break their own thing that. speaking of beijing i mean they've been very quiet about this you haven't really heard much from china what's the view there i mean how do you think chinese leaders view these protests publicly they don't talk about it they sense it on the mainland but internally they must be fuming because basically the hong kong government carry at one job and that was to prevent the protests in i'll keep it politically stable and what happened
the protests the political instability. you. briefly i mean want is this signal now for hong kong's autonomy from mainland china how much is that at risk i think the hong kong people have or time for themselves because there's a lot of things going on in china at the moment it looks like a very stable system but it's really cooking inside but the long term goal of the beijing government is definitely to bring hong kong under control and the systems tune 1000000 people out in the streets of hong kong bartsch with perspective on that from the institute here in berlin thank you very much thank you. now look at some of the other stories making news around the world sudan's former president omar al bashir has been charged with corruption related offenses after appearing in public for the 1st time since he was overthrown in april he was taken to the public prosecutor's office in the capital khartoum where he has been under arrest the

zone with syria a minister benjamin netanyahu dubbed the ceremony in trumps on earth for recognizing israeli sovereignty over the plateau project aims to strengthen relations between washington and tel aviv but critics are calling it a publicity stunt ahead of elections in september trump heights the new settlement is expected to be built near tayla in the northern lights. our correspondent on the cramer visited the site. this is the settlement of killer pull him on the occupied golan heights a new neighborhood is planned here named in honor of u.s. president on trump only a dozen presidents live in kill or pull him there right many years ago from the former soviet union 30. 1 of them the red terry is amused by the recent interest in this home. we suddenly
have lots of visitors coming here from all different parts of the country most recently was a couple from tel aviv and a family from jerusalem here it's because the settlement is going to be named after charm but they're also interested in the golan heights. billups of koskie helped build the settlement in 1991 over the years more and more families moved away to less remote towns now it's almost abandoned the new neighborhood named after trump will be built next to the old settlement it would be based on old plans that were never realized in april prime minister netanyahu announced that he would name a town in the occupied golan heights after u.s. president donald trump in honor of his decision to recognize israeli control over the territory and this is the place that eventually will be named after trump trump's controversial decision most criticized by the international community which
considers the golan heights to be occupied territory is captured the strategically important plateau from syria 967 here israelis were thrilled by trump's decision they hope the new place will lead to new infrastructure and investment then when i get there it is very exciting because no new settlements have been built on the golan heights for 30 years it's unbelievable a lot of young families with kids already waiting to come and live here. google can . that's also what's most important to long term resident flooding you. really should be named after. it's important not something that changes here doesn't happen just by changing the name. you have to shoot him that's done by people and money and time today or time tomorrow so it doesn't really matter.
what does matter is that the u.s. president agrees with the israeli government that this land should remain forever under israel's control. our let's talk women's world cup now in france there were 2 big matches in group f. on sunday the reigning champions the u.s. face off and chile speedin went head to head with thailand sports reporter pablo l.a.'s is here he's been following that tournaments closely you're watching those games today what starts with the usa i mean they've been a juggernaut 13 goals in their last match against ireland was this a repeat performance today against chile now it wasn't quite 13 goals but they've now scored 16 goals in 2 games so you've already kind of given away the result it was 3 nail against chile in paris they're just so strong they're so stronger the number one team in the world for good reason you know that talent herself stronger
just technically just far superior to them and pretty much every team you know that i've seen so far in the tournament but before we actually talked a bit more about them let's take a look at how they fared against chile. alex morgan scored 5 goals against thailand but was rested on the bench against chile so she's the strength in depth for the u.s. side. carli lloyd was restored to the starting line up and it took 11 minutes for her to score a record 6 in a 6 straight world cup game. she thought they'd equalize midway through the 1st half but colored a rare 0 was deemed to be offside and interfering in play despite not touching the ball. almost immediately the ruthless u.s. team increased their lead thanks to a superb header from juliet's arguably the best headed goal of the tournament so far. lloyd then made it 3 nil 10 minutes before the hof time break.
the late smith penalty robbed her of the chance for a glorious hat trick but the u.s. power into the last 16 with a game to span. where you have an amazing result again from the united states now what will happen is they're going to face sweden and other big team in the tournament on thursday whoever wins that game will likely play the host france who are actually you know been performing pretty well as well in the tournament but it will be a very very great game to watch for sure speaking sweden they also had a match on sunday they face thailand how did that and i have time as you mentioned for the team of course that last 13 ill to the united states that they were obvious you need looking to come out with a much better result against sweden was a little bit better they still lost the game but it was not as bad as we saw in the absolute thrashing they did lose 51 we actually take a look at how they fared against sweden and it was actually the swedes with linda
sam brown 2 headed in their 1st go on 6 minutes. threaten sporadically but it was soon to know for sweden after 8 goalkeeping. as lanny that was to survive there with the gold and sweden out of 2 more thailand they were plucky enough they struck like true kind yana sonia. before sweden sport . so 51 was to score their sweden actually qualified for the last 16 and good to see kyle getting on the board in a golden days all ingredients good for at the team's weekly looking ahead to monday welcome expect we've got 2 big games as well china take on spain and then germany take on south africa germany are definitely one of the favorites in this tournament spain didn't look so bad against germany spent germany death need to up their game a little bit last question can germany take on the u.s. . i think that will be a really good game if it does come down the road could be pretty tight i fun stuff
