5:02 pm
-- taken control of severely houthi conditions. >> reporter: sources in aden say the men is not what they appear to be. their clothing is similar to this area. they are said to be arab troops to help pro-government forces fighting against the militia. local forces don't usually have access to what is seen in the video. >> it's probably an antitank weapon light infantry troops. typical weapon used by special operations forces. at the end of the day you have to defined your objective and find the best way to achieve it. going with a grand operation is not the wisest way to do it. it would be costly.
5:03 pm
>> reporter: local sources agree they are special forces in a reconnaissance mission. saudi spokesmen deny sending any troops. >> translation: i assure you if troops were brought in to aden there the sea, we would have confirmed during the daily briefing. all options are open. the coalition will not spare effort backing the resistance and achieve positive outcomes on the crown. the coalition will not spare any efforts and back what is happening on the ground. i reiterate no troop landings occurred in yemen. >> reporter: ground troops is a major operation in the war. once a ground operation starts many casualties are inevitable as is a protracted conflict. ambiguous comment were made when asked about future operations.
5:04 pm
saudi arabia and allies suggested that there may be a ground invasion, but appeared optimistic. but it wouldn't be necessary. a coalition suggested air strikes was enough to take down capabilities. forces loul to the president seem to be making gains, but are not in complete control. there doesn't seem to be a unified central command to coordinate the effort of the militia at least 20 police officers and protesters have been injured in clashes. violence broke out as thousand marched, protesting against police brutality and racism. police showed a video clip showing people shoving and punching a soldiers. prime minister binyamin netanyahu said he will met the
5:05 pm
beaten soldiers and representatives of the community on monday. >> mike hanna joins us on the line from jerusalem. bring us up to date with this story. >> an uneasy calm returns to the center of tel aviv. we have been looking at picture of what happened a couple of hours ago. this followed hours of peaceful demonstration by a group of demonstrators led by the yooethan jews over -- ethiopian jews demonstrating on what they perceived as racism on israel. they waived israeli flags. some wore police and armed uniforms making it clear they considered themselves a part of israeli society. for hours the demonstration went on peacefully. travelling was distrupted in tel aviv throughout the period of
5:06 pm
time. there was no sign of riot gear among the police monitoring the process, and then within the last few hours some of the groups who had been kiking part in the demonstration gathered in the square in the center of tel aviv. police opened fire with tear gas. water cannon was used and we sue the theme of police ridding on horse back into the square, named after a former president and architect of peace of israel. certainly the images shocking to israeli to see it as a center of the nation. and seeing a nation divided. israeli police and special forces coming up against a group, a minority ethiopian who are jewish as well.
5:07 pm
this is something that israel is looking at closely. the pictures truly shocking. >> more broadly, how much of a problem is there with racism in israel. >> well it's been a constant conversation for a number of years. what happened in recent weeks, is last week a video was released of an yooethan solder accosted by israeli police covering a backpack. he was beaten on the camera by the israeli police. this is viral with an internet. yooethan minorities some number of 20,000 people most of them were important within israel second generation jews came together to protest what they
5:08 pm
saw as intense discrimination as what has been they argue, years of distrim nation and marginalisation by the israeli authorities because of the colour of their skin. because they are yooethan jews. they come from africa and this is something that is underlying israeli society for a long period of time which peaked with the showing of that particular video, lead to a demonstration in jerusalem, which ended in voim and cull min -- in violence and culminated in a demonstration that was peaceful for hours culminating in violence. important to say the incident in which the israeli soldiers was beaten by police. the prime minister is meeting with that police officer tomorrow. also meeting with members of the
5:09 pm
ethiopian community. clearly the binyamin netanyahu administration sees this as a major problem. they are addressing it as quickly as possible hence the meeting in the next 24 hours. >> thank you for the live update there more than 5,000 migrants have been rescued from the mediterranean sea. the coast guard and the navy is taking advantage of calmer seas as migrants risk their lives to reach europe. in a few moments we'll get the most from libya. stephanie dekker reports from sicily on a remarkable rescue. >> reporter: it's pitched back. imagine what it feels like crammed into a wooden boat with no engine floating hopelessly
5:10 pm
on the italian sea. the arrival of police that patrol the sea is a relief. this boat has women and children on board. rescuers try to maintain calm. if the boat is unbalanced they could fall into the water. they have been thrown life jackets. most that brave the journey cross with nothing but hope. this is one of 17 rescues. this is another, 397 people, including young children crammed on to an engineless boat at the mercy of the speed. one of the aid agencies say the arrivals have been from sub-saharan africa mainly libya. medical health is not great. almost 2,000 of those rescued will be brought to sicily. smugglers are taking advantage of the good weather, and it is set to last. numbers reaching the shores are the highest it's ever been.
5:11 pm
thousands and thousands more will be attempting the crossing over the next few months. the libyan coast guard brought 470 people back to sure who are trying to reach italy. we have more from misrarta. >> about 470 people were rescued by the libyan coast guard. they have sailed off in the middle of the night on board the zoedia. they have been -- zoediac. they have been brought to misrata. the question is where do the people go. the holding center in misrata is overcrowded. they'll have to be dispatched to other cities along the coast. this is a huge problem for this country. it doesn't have the capacity to deal with staggering numbers of people that want to cross the
5:12 pm
mediterranean, and they'll increase in the coming months because of the summer. we heard from officials complaining there's no assistance from the e.u. or no coordination with the italian navy or coast guard, and they fear if left to their own devices. you feel that libya feels they are taking the blame, and is increasing in numbers all the time. one estimate on the ground is they are about 1 million people who have come to this country waiting to cross to southern italy, and they are waiting to do that. the libyans are saying everyone is putting the focus on us. everyone says they are leaving from our country. we don't have the means to do that. they are calling on the international community, from the u.n. to come to libya to put together a mechanism not only to prevent these people
5:13 pm
were leaving, but once rescued and coming back to the country, what to do with them. most of the airlines are shut, most airlines don't come to the country. and most of the people tell you they don't want to come to their country. they fled war, hoping it would be better. they are fleeing war, and only want to go to europe. despite the dangers and the risk and what they have seen on hardship. everyone told me they'd try to do the trip once again syrian activists accuse government forces of carrying out an attack. women and children in idlib were treated for breathing problems. it follows two other attacks. government forces are reported to have bombed a kindergarten in
5:14 pm
aleppo. at least 12 people were killed at least 10 children meanwhile, the united nations says the syrian government must stop the bombing and shelling of yarmouk refugee camp. it was hit overnight on friday. thousands were thousands were forced to leave after armed groups entered a month ago. >> reporter: the united nations wants this to stop. the syrian government has been bombarding the yarmouk camp as part of an ongoing military organization. the camp is home to thousands of palestinians. since 2012 they have been unsiege by government forces. over recent weeks, they are being attacked. >> i'm a resident of yarmouk. we were sitting in our homes with children when missiles rockets, barrel bombs landed around us. look around you. they hit civilians and children.
5:15 pm
that is paying the price. there's no fighters here somewhere the united nations. >> the camp turned into an urban battle ground when the fighters entered yarmouk a few weeks ago. most have withdrawn after fighting with other rebel groups. despite this the syrian army has not stopped its military operation. the united nations is worried about the safety of the civilians inside. the the secretary-general in a statement issued by a spokesperson said that thousands of civilians in the camp are besieged by terrorists and armed troops on the inside and government forces on the outside. he called on the government to end an operation that could danger the lives of civilians, and urged parties to stop the violence so as to grant sustained access to civilians inside the camp. the people of yarmouk had to
5:16 pm
rely on handouts. many died from malnutrition. since the flare up in fighting the situation and hardship have worsened. the united nations security council demanded all parties allow humanitarian aid to reach without obstruction, and a delegation is being sent to damascus. the organization wants to find alternatives to a military solution to relieve the suffering of syria's palestinians. the damascus group wanted armed groups to conduct operations with its forces. the p.l.o. doesn't want to be drawn in the conflict. regardless of its stance, the government is unlikely to stop its offensive. yarmouk is at the doorstep of the government's seat of power. still ahead in the newshour - a test for

5:19 pm
vehicles through on the main road from kathmandu, which was cracked in many places. three landslides blocked it off. we got through after a bulldozer finished off the work. however, when you get to the next town a large capital of the district which is known in european terms, that is as far as you get. you can't get any further because of landslides. it's the same picture we have seen so many times. harder and harder to obsort of because of the enormity of what happened. more than a week after the earthquake, people are still in shock. trying to get on with things. coog to really survive through the day. now, the number of dead here was in the region of four. that's for the distribute.
5:20 pm
apparently five bodies were caught in the earthquake down the hilly mountainside area. so the number of casualties was not new, but the damage for life is something that will take is long time to put right. phone video of a crowd lynching a woman has been shown in court in afghanistan, on the second day of a trial of 49 men over her killing. some police officers are accused of standing by while the 27-year-old was beaten after being falsely accused of burping a copy of the koran. >> reporter: it's a case that captured attention of many in afghanistan. among 49 men on trial, 19 police men accused of stopping the murder. a 27-year-old was beaten run over by a car and her body burnt, on a kabul street on the
5:21 pm
middle of a march afternoon. hundreds watched, many recording it on cellphones. some of that was used in court to identify the defendant. when charges were read out, many admitted to being there, but said they didn't participate in the beating. >> the trial is not with the murder of akonda. it's a test of the system. because the family lawyer failed to testify against those. law number 54 is failing to help a victim of mob violence. it's never been enforced. but it is hoped that successful victims mean the law will be in force in the future. >> definitely they should be prosecuted for murder. but if you are standing by filming not doing anything you have a legal obligation to step in and protect. >> reporter: senior police officers testified about the breakdown in communications and
5:22 pm
a failure to send police to stop murderous crowds. junior officers held in custody told the court they called for help and none came. >> our expectation is that everybody, regardless of the pos of the government should be equal. we see a lot of people are punished. people with high level support are free to speak. >> i think it is political, and life exhibition. they don't do the judicial real court processes. >> reporter: the men on trial agree with them. as the court adjourned, some shouted that they tried do their jobs but they didn't have the support of demanders i.s.i.l. fighters claimed responsibility for twin bombs that killed 13. the bombs wept off minute apart in a popular commercial area. some say i.s.i.l. fighters are

5:24 pm
behind the attacks. this is a community leader in charge of the camp. >> translation: this is a move by politicians to inflame sectarian hatred. look at the camp. it's mainly women, children and babies, there's no i.s.i.l. >> baghdad used to be a mixed city almost evenly split. the demographics change as many sunnis left. >> reporter: sectarian violence is still felt today. since then shia communities stick to the sunni communities in their neighbourhoods. the blame game has many worried there'll be a return to the sectarian blood-letting and the city will see more violence. the egyptian army said it killed fighters during raids in northern sinai.

5:32 pm
would include people from yemen themselves, people working with the saudis and members of a coalition based outside the country. they would know the territory best and be able to mix with the local militia. >> is it likely to be special forces and possibly that's why saudi arabia will not comment on what is going on? >> yes, possibly. they could serve many functions. at a minimum they could take a look on the ground and get a sense of the battlefield, they could assist with the air campaign because it's good to have ground spotters. they'll make sure a target is hit instead of a civilian target. it's possible that this was designed to do what we are doing now, to communicate over the
5:33 pm
media, of forces a time of warning that the houthis continue to vans and they could see a greater study. so thinking about their reasons as well. >> in that context. if that's the message, is that likely to influence the houthis at all? >> that's a good point. i mean if they want - what they probably want to do is use it as a deterrent and keep on advancing, likely trigger an intervention. in the korean war there was volunteers. as you imply the houthis could say bring them on. they could rally all the yemenis and nationalists behind them with what they describe as a saudi interthings force. >> why do you thing this would happen at this point. in terms of the timing.
5:34 pm
>> i suppose because the air campaign has not met all the goals that the saudis declared and the houthis - if they capture aden it would be hard to mountain intervention without having access. they may want to make sure there's some area where an independent force can be established. thank you for your thought on the story. thank you. >> thank you for having me 275 women and children rescued from boko haram are spending their first night in a camp in nigeria. this video is showing fighters driven out of the forest. amnesty international estimates 2,000 women and girls have been kidnapped by boko haram since

5:40 pm
successive westminster governments offered no replace. . grimsby doesn't have an electrified railway to connect it with the rest of the country. >> it's not difficult for a party like this to blame the european union for what happened. but the real anger that they represent in england is deeper than that. it's that there are literally dozens of towns that are just like this. they are not just in a different country to the one inhabited by the metropolitan elite, it's like a different planet. >> further down the coast are other towns where ukip's leader is decided. its leader is contesting this place. if he losses the party will fall apart. the conservative party candidate is taking soundings from businesses that want to stay in the european union. the conservatives that accepted logic that immigration causes

5:42 pm
ukip cannot make inroads. >> the argument prospers. there's often hardly a foreign face to be seen. the westminster party that looks after england - perhaps they wouldn't have ukip to worry about now. it's five years since presidential elections in belarus sparked unrest. the european union had a lot of hard rules following the break. the country has overcome criticisms of human rite of the monday they'll discuss the record. from minsk, rory challands reports. >> if they come at all, the letters from marina's husband arrived 10 days or more after they were sent. this person stood against the president in the 2010 elections. haes in a penal cole jobby,

>> that is the sport. more for you later. >> thank you very much indeed. peru century's old techology is bringing water to one of the largest desert cities. 9.5 million residents. they are tapping ancient canals. s we visit a tiny village making it possible ancient peruvians in the peaks of the andeans know how to store water. the canals date back to the 7th century, and the peasant farmers are restoring and keeping them. it's a main source of water. >> we are cleaning the way from rocks so the water runs and doesn't overflow. 4,000 meters above sea level ancient andeans let the water through the canals, straight into rocky areas where filtration is high. the ground is a sponge.

the technique is one reason why they are so efficient. the bottom of the canals is porous, allowing the water to filter into the ground. it will resurface weeks or months later in springs down the mountains. the springs centuries old reservoirs during the rainy season, and non-governmental agencies helped farmers to restore one of nearly 10 canals in the area. the recovery costing $20,000. >> the investment is peanuts for a reservoir needed in the mountains. >> the filtration helps the water to end up here. one of only three rivers that provide water to the capital. lima is the largest city. experts say water is guaranteed until 2025. if the canals could be replicated, lima and the coast

can benefit. >> if we compare the capacity to water in a dam versus in the ground, the capacity for storage is larger than building reservoirs. it has companies investing more than 22 million preserving the basins in the andes. people like 85-year-old are already seeing the effects. >> it has helped. we have water filtering and running down ravines. five years ago i used to carry water to water the fields. now they grow radishes, articokes and alfalfa. if managed well, the ancient technique will contribute to guaranteeing the right to millions of peruvians to live with running water that's it for the newshour.
