12:02 am
ah. a warm welcome to the program. the palestinian attorney general says israeli forces deliberately targeted veteran al jesse were reporter, sheridan abil, actually with armor piercing bullets with the intent to kill her. and those who tried to help her. our crew are khattab says they've concluded that a sniper shot sharing in the head now occupied west bank. on may. the 11th need to abraham reports now from ramallah. the is really army, deliberately target the veteran. i just eat a journalist, treating a ball. claire with this is the mean finding of the palestinian public prosecutors investigation into the killing in a press conference and the presidential headquarters in the occupied west bank. the prosecutor explained how she was targeted while trying to escape a barrage of bullets about validating shuttling coffee. and it's been
12:03 am
proven conclusively that the targeting of shewn and the group are joined by the israeli occupation forces was direct and deliberate that has improved by the type of the rifle. aruba mini 14 and the type of bullet known as i'm up here in bullet stuck them. the investigation confirmed there was no firing from the palestinian side at the time, shooting was killed. the bullet is a key evidence of the case. palestinian official have refused to hand it over to the israeli authorities. the palestinian authority won't even release the picture of the bullet saying israel will try to use it to manipulate track. that mistrust is why the palestinian authority has refused a joint investigation with israel saying it can't trust israel to investigate itself. is really narrative changed several time since judy was shot. these really are mistress that it can't. that's her mind if she was killed by palestinians or by israeli forces. the i'll just either media network has formed the legal team to
12:04 am
refer shootings file to the international criminal court itc. earlier this week, the palestinian foreign ministry submitted the fall of shooting killing to the high tribunal, hoping the ice, his prosecutor would investigate the case. we will continue to resort to all international forms. we will not abandon a single right of the palestinian people. we will present all the document to the international court, including this significant report and we have already referred several documents onto the international criminal court. the palestinian investigation report is the latest addition to witnesses accounts and several investigations confirming that shooting was deliberately targeted. it's saying here as more proof as more evidence that if and when the i see decide to investigate the case that they will have more witnesses, they will have more finding. but the palestinians here are hoping that with international pressure, with the media attention to this case,
12:05 am
that the eyes to see will indeed investigate should ins, killing as a war crime. many here say that she is not the 1st victim of these really occupation and fear she won't be the laugh. they won't accountability, but fear it's a far fetched expectation. later, but him al jazeera be occupied westbank while the palestinian ambassador to the united nations has given an emotional address security cancel. we had mom, sewer is calling for justice on behalf of all punish palestinians who fallen victim to the israeli occupation. she reads, killing is the story. the same story. she was telling. the difference is that this time the world knew the victim. we are not being killed because of what we do, but because of who we are, we are not being killed by mistake. but as, but
12:06 am
a grand design a me to make sure we all understand. no one is safe so that we all live with fear in our hearts uncertain. no. impunity for a journalist at president the health worker. a you and stuff, a farmer, a child that may be a pregnant mother, an elderly professor, a dual citizen, and minister, an officer, a judge. if you are a palestinian, you are illegitimate, thought us ambassador to the un is demanding full accountability fisheries killing. we strongly condemn her killing, and we call for an immediate oral, transparent, and impartial investigation and apparently include conclusion of an investigation.
12:07 am
we expect full accountability for those found responsible. sharina killing is a tragic loss and an affront to press freedom everywhere. compounding this last was the violence at sharon's funeral procession on may 13th and we have directly shared our concern with israel regarding the troubling footage of israeli police intruding into the procession. kristin salumi is live now from the un headquarters in new york. i. kristen put these statements into some sort of context for us. what was the point of this meeting? this was the security council's monthly meeting on the situation in the middle east, a chance for the security council to get an update on pertinent developments in the region. what they refer to as the palestinian question and nearly every speaker
12:08 am
brought up the killing of serene ottawa clay and the need for an investigation to be pursued there. those speakers, however, put her death into the context of palestinian issues on a daily basis and what average palestinians are dealing with the middle east, envoy for the united nations tor van. aslan, i talked about a familiar pattern of violence that includes armed clashes, settlement expansions, demolitions daily violence. he called and pointed out that 10 palestinians have died since the last meeting of the security council on the situation and the middle east among them. a woman and 3 children and israelis have died as well, for israelis were killed in that period. and that was also condemned by most of the speakers there as well. but what sharon's death and the palestinian ambassadors comments about it highlight is that there is a lack of recourse for palestinians when i'm a journalist,
12:09 am
a child or humanitarian worker can be killed without recourse at kristen. the security council, as, as you've been saying, is already condemned showings killing, but doing expect them to take further action at this stage. right, the security council had a rare moment of unity on the situation in the middle east and made a statement calling for a immediate thorough, transparent, and impartial investigation. again, many people repeated that call today the you members of the security council when even farther and called for an independent investigation though they didn't talk about what that would entail or what, who would possibly do that. we know that the palestinians have been calling for the international criminal court to take up the issue and to look into it. and al jazeera network has also called for the isis see, to do so the e,
12:10 am
when even farther, and talked about settlement expansion and deplored b recent decision to construct 4000 new housing units in the occupied west bank. and as we heard from the u. s. ambassador, she also demanded accountability and as well as an investigation into sharina. steph, kristin salumi, they are joining us live from the you and kristen think he will lewis. marino campbell served as the 1st chief prosecutor of the international criminal court from 2003 to 2012, and he joins his life also from new york for more on that i. c. c, were pharaoh. mr. marino campbell, thank you very much for being with us. can you explain for us, how does this process work? how is a case brought to the i c. c? well, the frivolous wants some validity to vicki gave the crime in spanish thought. so that, but athenian oath, florida,
12:11 am
these are the main with ultimately mitigate. however, if they found they've they date that perpetrator, lisa, israeli told you that, but then also because law leo could bring it to eat, rescued him because echoing with boston can not prosecute it. therefore the only chance they have is that they did send castell, international criminal court in the hey, so the person who is now that g prosecutor guardian can p that person who's l 32. these do mitigate or not to me in the crime. the news on the international court and it isn't open in the palestine. so is read, it was incidents are investigated in there by the same situation that either responsibility of the current cheaper than cutting and how is that just to then
12:12 am
decide whether a particular incident has mary or not, in what ways that decision made well depend not depend he got his own credential and that that's it. look it user and he's a good lawyer, need evidence. so my point is we had to cook, i'd like to kill the bunny finance on the radio to solve this issue. we need a real good investigation and therefore in order to facilitate the work of the prosecutor shipping court would help him to get evidence for palestine is very difficult to interview is really focus. but i just see that, see, and then you can look and you can do that in formally as a journalist or you're going to do it with, with an s, as a lawyer would do. it was a nephew day to do when it's one payment or you can help bring the bringing the
12:13 am
witness to the i to see. i see can interview the person in the, in, in the court in the hague easily. so they're different in mall as to why i believe the fact that jesse that is involved in this and he sent to boosted investigation is very important. cnn also today make a few they to go make a big splash on different type of evidence. okay, that's very good. you can help the prosecutor to have a good the fact that is a way to move this case for what. what does the timeline in a situation like this look like? like if all the evidence is being compiled as you point out from all sorts of different sources, how, how long might it take until some sort of progress? and i use that word loosely might be seen. we are no, no is there is no time limit. so the procedure go, discretion is absolute here and also if he's investigating the crime,
12:14 am
he will not tell us. so he had to keep this investigation confidentially so that what we don't know, but, you know, to get momentum and to keep it going ahead because he's a lot of frustration now on this case and adding to live generation by this case. it beat them infiltration because she was a journalist. she, she had the american pathways. she's, she's a barry this particular victim. so i believe they went to move forward with k to expedite the process is to help in mitigation. i just, cedar will provide testimonies. i just like would call the general in judge of the military forces, asking questions about the could frankly in defy the sodium deisel food such as showing that the cars that were there. so you can in the fight who are in the cars and try to interview them. you're going to review the people who were with the
12:15 am
journalist here. so you can do a lot of c helping to, to expedite the mitigation, providing evidence with our help in the pacific to of, in the mitigation. this was marine ocampo, their 1st to prosecutor, the international criminal court. thanks so much for joining us. and you, coming up on the snooze are from london among cons, ultimatum to the pakistani government call new elections of face a string of major protests, exposing divisions of race and class, the former domestic worker who could become columbia's next vice president. and in support. the best player in women's tennis right now makes it 30 winds in a row to reach the 3rd, right. the french ah, long foresman officials in the us are under renewed pressure over their response to
12:16 am
tuesday school shooting in texas, the deadliest in a decade. 19 children and 2 teachers were killed at an elementary school in vall, day oh, a vigil was held on wednesday night to remember the victims authority say that gunman, salvador ramos entered the school without any confrontation, contradicting earlier reports that an officer engaged with him outside the building, he was shot dead more than an hour later. and despite a community in morning, the national rifle association has ignored calls to counsel its event in texas on friday. the shooting has once again brought gun control back into the national spotlight. even as members of you've all this small community still struggle to make sense of the tragedy with do it got burnt up. that baby all
12:17 am
just love blah blah, that i bet you i honestly think that it could have been a lot more to have been prevented to compare that a few barriers or surely that going further horizon. john hinge and joins us live now from the of all day in texas. and john, what do we learn from the most recent press conference that was held? this is a picture of a town in morning. this is the newspaper to day. it's all black, but for the date of the massacre, it was supposed to be the last day of school, but instead 21 crosses are standing on the school yard. one for each of the people killed 19 children, 2 teachers. and we now have learned that the husband of one of those teachers, irma garcia, has also died of a heart attack. i spoke to
12:18 am
a brave young man is 8 years old, named fernando rodriguez. we had the permission of his mother to speak to him. he said he was in the school at the time as the shooting was going on and those bullets were audible to him. he said he was scared, and now he says he misses his friends. there are a lot of new questions now being asked as to why it took an hour for border patrol agents to storm into that school. they had to find a key to get into the door of the classroom where the gunman was held, holding people hostage and shooting them. over the course of an hour. we are told by one child who survived in that room that hit the words of the gunman as he entered work. it's time to die. now what we've learned from police in a news conference today was they backtracked earlier comments saying that a guard at the school had tried to stop the gum. and in fact, they say that gum went right into their school and we have video here. this is
12:19 am
a little hard to hear, but there are parents who are asking police why they're not going in urging them to go in saying there are children inside who cannot defend themselves. asked about that at a news conference today. a police spokesman said, we want to get you the answers, but give us time. so a lot of criticism about the timing of this shooting until i'm high, would you sum up how the community are dealing with these latest developments as they come? i'm, i'm sorry if you're asking me a follow up. i am not able to hear that. i will tell you john hendrick, there will speak not to david casino from the give his law center to prevent gun violence and he joins us live from new york. i'm hi there, david. at do you sense that there's any sort of tipping point here in the aftermath of this shooting and can we expect any action to be take him? hi julian, thank you for having me tonight. i certainly hope so. i mean,
12:20 am
the car that we've seen in texas is not new. we just saw in buffalo years ago, and communities around the united states have been experiencing it day after day, year after year. and i hope that at some point, finally our politicians finally decide that they've had enough time to take some important action. and i hope that it's this moment and i find every day that it will be david, we've heard a few times now. and yesterday we heard from the texan governor, he said, you know, let's not make politics out of this massacre. but then again, families involved, they want this to be political enough, presumably to make change happen. i suppose looking at it from the perspective over here in great britain where these things don't happen, we ask ourselves, how can this not be political, isn't politics at the heart of this? well, i think the fact the question about whether you call it politics or not is beside the point and the attempt to call it a political matter is a way to sidestep responsibility for the fact that the matter is, texas has some but worse laws in this country and this country is not strong enough laws as it is, and until our officials recognize that and take responsibility for it,
12:21 am
there will be no action of need action. we've also heard, as we often do in the situation, david, that it's, it's not guns, but mental health in this case that needs tackling. so i guess my question would be, who are we going to see the republican sentences pledging bizarre says for, for mental health. i think that should be every resources a portfolio of mental illnesses that, that there, there could be. but i think what you'll notice is that in the same speech where the governor yesterday called for more mental health intervention, he also said that there was no indication that the individual needed mental health treatment until he walked into a school and thought all those children so that's obviously not the answer to distraction what, what is the answer because we've seen this happen time after time after time. and the world looks on, i think with a sense of absolute bewilderment. and we heard by to say yesterday that the 2nd amendment is an absolute, it's always had its limits. so why is it that what seems like common sense restrictions to the rest of the world seems so on palatable? it would seem just so many in the us. i mean what you said about this keeps
12:22 am
happening time after time. and that's true. and the thing that underlies every time that it happens, the fact that it was at the gun that was too easy for the person to obtain. it is far too easy to get a gun in this country. there are too many in the hands of people who shouldn't have them. so we need things like universal background checks. we need restrictions on people ages 80920 years old. they can't go out by a semi automatic weapon as the shooter did here, as the shooter did in buffalo, we need is kind of intervention desperately. and there's no reason why we can't have them except that our policies don't have the will for it. and it is not partly because we hear that politicians don't have the will, but is that because people will vote for them if they change direction? i don't know how to explain the cowardice of those politicians, but my theory is that it's not a matter of anything back there in the pocket of the n r i. the energy has been such a toxic force on our politics for so long. and there are an organization that like the gun industry they represent refused to take responsibility even when it's so
12:23 am
obviously at their feet. davis, you know, they are joining me from the different law center to prevent gun violence, and thanks very much, david for joining us. thank you, julie. now less than 2 months after he was ousted in a vote of no confidence pakistan's, former prime minister that's among con stage and biggest process. yet in the capital, islam abad. is one the government to hold fresh elections in less than a week or face more mass demonstrations. small hider has more not from some about hundreds of containers and police barricades have failed to stop dest brokerage, march powder, and supporters of former prime minister m. ron han bringing life to a what you're still in buckets on capital. if my by one group broke through. 3 barriers why largest glowed by tried to reach the protest retinue, hoping to catch a glimpse of delita people march for 30 yards and lying, stretching for several kilometer to reach the capital. and what would usually be to
12:24 am
drive 100? i'm on the left early morning on rent, day to day the city despite the barricade going on. thank you. a lot of the punjab police made things difficult for us and use tear gas and 2 dogs to stop by. but i still manage to get although it was made to be a beautiful protege. it soon turned violent the police you for your district, the protested and major city, and prevent them from joining the protest in the capital. hon supported including women and children 1st and then the guy came and rubber for late. it's bite, a court ruling allying the projects go ahead. hundreds of people who are all registered across buckets, dawn, including, and night rates throughout the nearly died m, ron con, said he had decided to temporarily call of the appropriate an issue to make him
12:25 am
i'm giving it the government 6 days to announce and you will action date and now it's election dates in the month of june ends is over simply. if you do not, then i will come back to islamabad with all of my mean. the former prime minister, i'm ron han had already left the renew of the rotate body and warned a government 6 days to announce fresh election, the government. and it will complete it all. but it faded and up, dodge in, dealing with a mounting economic crisis and reduce your force against baseboard per cache criticism of it is growing. come all have roger g. it's lama bod. well, aisha city is a senior fellow with the department of war studies at kings collision london. she joins us live via skype. sure, welcome to the program. and how would you describe what we're currently seeing and pakistanis iran con demands those fresh elections?
12:26 am
wow. the way his people have gathered in the queue also created is really depressing. but i think that his deadline is also recognition. that there was brush on him probably from the military who want him to go back and not create you know more, more in the sun. god bucks on is really under a lot of pressure with mommy pressure. it needs money from the math and it really needs to show our method this entire government. is that long enough for math to provide some resources for barcas on? for military, it's essential and will pockets on these resources are essential. asia, how much support across the whole country does? does it run con, have why don't you know when the last elections, 2018, about 31 percent of the voters voted for him. so you know, that is just to give you a sense. i would also imagine that given his rhetoric,
12:27 am
given his goal for, you know, conspiracy theory and american good thursday, again, spark is on. he's become more popular. i mean for what one has the you the fence sitters what neither in one body or the other. they have to, it was called and that's why call the election, but he's not even looking at, you know, in want, in order to return to power is not even looking at what it means for buckets on. i mean, this is really a very critical situation for the country. he also wants to kind of, you know, build support for himself, show this st. paul to impress the generals in the army so that they could also, you know, go towards it. but right now it's 5050. what, what could tip the balance i aisha, i mean, i'm thinking about this is
12:28 am
a kind of in the book situation could, could we see more violence, for example? i don't think not. i mean, he can, i mean, he gives a call, probably they'll be more people were agitated, boxed on is very polarized at the moment. so that could be violent, but i don't think that he would be allowed, greater violence. i mean, whatever boxed on his scene is kind of position right now. most confusions are thinking about how to kind of get through the day. there is no, no source really where i mean, china is hughie saw the rubia. all these countries were traditionally gave bucks on money, have austin to go to the i, m f, and i m f one focus on do in bows, new taxes to remove subsidies, and also reduce its deficit spending. that puts tremendous pressure and most
12:29 am
institutions for inflation is over 15.3 percent bucks on is really hurting. so more violence is going to hurt focus on more. it's not good. and i think what the ron khan is trying to do is make the govern durham government more kind of unpopular, which it will get eventually when things become more expensive. but this is certainly not the way i use as the kid there, senior fellow with the department of war study can college asia. thank you. thank you. there's lots more still to come this hour. ukraine admits russia has the upper hand in hand with 90 percent of the region under its control. unimed sport, boston take the upper handled miami in the n b a playoff. ah,
