lem's 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 lamb went far enough. already i'm here to condemn the police while it's against us it's unacceptable that the police define our demonstration last wednesday as a riot. lamb even justifies the police violence as righteous measures and that's why i'm here to urge her to step down the idea already 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 of the font and so i out they just jogging out the republic anger still seems following violent clashes on wednesday when police used tear gas rubber bullets and bean bag rounds to disperse tens of thousands of protesters as i don't know if the peace must apologize for using excessive force and the situation is

still an acceptable unless the biggest withdrawal and what she does is just muddle through half heartedly now it appears that nothing short of carry lam's resignation will make the people back down. join me now in studio ban heart botches a senior chinese expert at the battles money institute here in berlin i mean just looking at those pictures to 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 is totally unprecedented 2000000 people in hong kong is more than a quarter of the population that's what the a 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. they once carry land to reside that was why they were out there what are the chances of that happening. i think politically kerry is pretty much done
1:04 am
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 beijing 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
1:05 am
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 hong kong the communist party is not very fond of the special rights that's an off the every protest in the pots beijing has come back with more repressions with pressuring protesters they've always tightened their fist and the question is how long can they keep tightening their fists before they break their own thing. speaking of beijing i mean they've been very quiet about this we 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 carried at one job and that was to prevent the protests in all keep it politically
1:06 am
stable and what happened the protests the political stability just. 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 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 urge the systems soon 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 let's take a 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 april he was taken to the public prosecutor's office in the capital khartoum where he has been held under

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 also are 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 at the 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
1:10 am
considers the golan heights to be occupied territory is very captured the strategic importance told from syria 967 here israelis were thrilled by trump's decision they hope the new place will lead to new infrastructure and investment there i guess 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 longtime resident fly to me. the shoes are going to be named after. it's important that something changes here doesn't happen just by changing the name you have to act and that's done by people and money trying to day or time tomorrow so it doesn't really matter.
1:11 am
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. faced off in chile speeding would head to head with thailand reporter pablo las 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 the game 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 the talent herself asked herself stronger just technically just far superior to them than pretty much every
1:12 am
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 chile if they'd equal. midway through the 1st half i thought tyler guerrero 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 was. the late smith's penalty robbed her of the chance for
1:13 am
a glorious hat trick the u.s. power into the last 16 with a game to span. well there you have it what an amazing result again from the united states now what'll happen is they're going to face sweden another big team in the tournament on thursday whoever wins doc and 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 in sweden they also had a match on sunday they face thailand how did that and i have time on those you mentioned for the team of course that last 13 ill to the united states of they were obviously 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 trashing they did lose 5 ones we actually take a look at how they fared against sweden and it was actually the swedes with linda
1:14 am
sam brown 2 headed in their 1st go on 6 minutes. threaten sporadically but it was soon for sweden after goalkeeping. thank us of as lanny that was there with the gold in sweden added 2 more for that title and they were plucky enough they struck late through canyon assuming it. before it sweden scored a so 51 was to score their sweden actually qualified for the last 16 and good to see title getting on the board in a golden days always a good deal it's good for at the team's very quickly 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 spec germany def 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
