welcome to the al jazeera news hour. coming up in the next 60 minutes, an israeli settler shoots and kills a palestinian teenager but there are doubts about whether he posed a real threat >> syrian civilians are dying in homs as russia backs a new
11:01 am
offensive. plus, all the days sport including world champions new zealand prepare to take on france in the quarter finals of the rugby world cup. it's a story becoming all too familiar in the occupied palestinian territories. young palestinians shot and killed accused of random stabbing attacks. it's been repeated at least three times on saturday. 41 palestinians and seven israelis have been killed this month. >>reporter: one of the palestinian dead came from this neighborhood and was shot and killed in the adjoining settlement. it is one of the most heavily
11:02 am
blockaded park of east jerusalem. questions about the killing in hebron in the occupied west bank, this video shows a jewish settler in white clothes still waving his gun. no attempt is made by the soldiers to disarm him and several residents allege a knife was placed on the body of the palestinian the settler has just shot. the deep divide is reflected in an urgent meeting of the u.n. security council with representatives of each side exchanging blame. >> we come to you today asking you to urgently intervene to end this aggression against our defenseless palestinian people and against our shrines which are subjected to violations by
11:03 am
the israeli military occupation and the israeli settlers and by extremists. >> as we sit here today, israel is facing an onslaught of terrorism. there's been no command for an emergency session of council, no call for the palestinian leadership to stop their incitement, and not even a whisper of condemnation heard from this council. >> the israeli prime minister is due to meet john kerry in germany on wednesday and will present israels view of events. the root cause of the conflict lies in israels control of the old city and in particular the control of exercises over access to the al-aqsa mosque compound.
11:04 am
palestinian leaders insist that the focus of diplomacy should be the core issue. what does israel mean when it intends to -- the arrangements by which access is given to the al-aqsa mosque compound. we are talking to al jazeeras senior politicalage list. does this blatant attack represent a turn for the worst? >> it certainly does but more importantly, that's the worst that would be seen over the past few weeks and months. one of the important distinctions between this up rising and previous up risings in palestine, especially 2000
11:05 am
and 1987, is that this has come against the backdrop of major escalation of jewish settler violence in occupied territories. for our viewers around the world, many of those settlers are members of the israeli government. many are members of israeli parliament. a lot of them are soldiers in the israeli army and a lot of them do police within the west bank. so you have armed militias in the west bank illegally also serving the israeli army and for the last several months and years have been escalating the violence against the palestinians. and that's one of the reasons why we see the rise of the new generation if you will in pal state prison. >> proportionality is always a use words when it comes to the israeli palestinian conflict and
11:06 am
several groups are now raising voices of concern regarding the use of live ammunition against people who are using at worse, a knife. >> i think there's a lot of misconception. originally it's about a means to end, meaning what means do you use in order to achieve the ends that you have. now, if the ends is simply to confront palestinian children, that's one thing. if the end is to control the palestinian territories and make sure that the palestinians never dream of freedom from occupation, that's a whole different thing. so israel would probably need to use a lot of force not only to confront those throwing stones but they need to use the kind of force to pre-empt the palestinians to rise once again in order to ask for the liberty
11:07 am
they need from occupation. in 1988, we had exactly the same thing, that's almost three decades ago. the then defense minister ord order ordered soldiers to break the bones of palestinians. the logic of force is not working. >> finally, it seems as though the international community is reengage, the issue. we have a meeting of netanyahu with john kerry in germany next week and of course we have that urgent security council meeting of yesterday. >> yes. i'm not sure how helpful any of that is to be honest with you. the idea that they're meeting in berlin and not the near east, the idea that kerry is not going
11:08 am
to see any of the palestinian leadership. now, for the united states to call for calm is a bit dis disendisengeneral -- beyond talking about calm and the goal of two-state solution. either it admits its failure and israel and palestinian and the international will pick up the responsibility in terms of illegal occupation and settlement or a whole different idea. it's doing neither. >> thank you. the palestinian ambassador says the palestinians are united in resisting the israeli occupation to protect themselves by any means possible
11:09 am
>> there's an attempt by a group who are now in government by a terrorist group in israel. the settler movement now in control of the israeli government and in the last few weeks, they have tooken control of israeli society and they have one plan, to depopulation depopulad depopulate jerusalem and colonize it. we will resist all the attempts to turn us from history and i assure you today that every palestinian is united and i assure you that the palestinian leadership will take every possible action to protect our nation as you saw what was done yesterday. i want you to point to the daily
11:10 am
assassinations that happened this morning in hebron and in jerusalem. today we are living in a mat house inside israeli. this has turned into a horror house. people are killing with impugnty. >> russia says it's carried out 49 air strikes in syria in the last 24 hours, all which targeted isis but syrian activists say they also hit residential areas. >>reporter: a mourner recites the names of victims in this grave yard in homs. 36 names, 36 people he calls mar tires. sons, daughters, brothers sisters, all civilians killed during air strikes. they say russian helicopters are
11:11 am
responsible. >> they were killed while waiting in line for bread. they're innocent people. they're not isil. we only have god on our side. a new offense has been launched on homs in the last few days. it's not the first but this time it has russian air support. another 20 civilians were killed leaving behind a blood soaked prayer rug. >> the bombs landed here. where are the terrorists here? this was a bakery owned by family and this is their property. >> army commanders say they're targeting terrorists including the provinces of idlib and hama.
11:12 am
if the syrian government recaptures homs, it would be able to regain control of roads linking the capital damascus to aleppo. there have been protests in the capital of turkey a week after two bomb blasts killed almost 100 people there. the attacks, the worst in turkeys modern history that prompted widespread anger against the government. three of 12 suspects in custody appeared in court on friday last weeks attack has highlighted the deep political divisions within turkey. >> i think if people showed up at the protest site today, what they would see is a great mistrust of the government, for example, i went through a volunteer citizens initiative
11:13 am
checkpoint. there's such distrust of the turkish government and the police that they are taking matters into their own hands. turkey continues to be a very polarize and divided country. people felt more secure that the police were not there today and that security was provided by the volunteers. it's sad to see that the citizens these days tend to trust civilian initiatives more than the police who are responsible for creating safety and security of their own citizens. politics election campaign but what do voters really care

trails. many quake victims in this area are living under iron and tarp shelters. to survive the winter, they need more than just extra food. >> insulation has to be put in some of these places. we have to put stoves in some places and then deliver thermal blankets just to make people ready for the winter. >>reporter: but fuel for helicopters are also running low and the polite of survivors of the quake has become worse. the philippine authorities have warned that a typhoon could be around for several more days. forecasters say it could strike early on sunday. it's expected to affect 7.5 million people. refugees have started

11:20 am
humanitarian situation on the ground. absolutely disasterous. >>reporter: these were the last refugees to get into hungary on friday. the government has built a razor wire fence to stop people from crossing into its territory. it says it was forced to shutdown the crossing point. >> this is not the best. only the second best solution. but the best solution did not come about yesterday at the european council meeting as there was no agreement on the protection on the borders. >>reporter: the sheer number of refugees who have arrived has strained europe's asylum system. germany has received most of the asylum seekers. the government of hungary has so
11:21 am
fared ignored criticism of how it's handled the crisis. it's now sealed a second border with serbia last month. its message to refugees is clear, go somewhere else. 12 refugees including four children and a baby have drowned off the turkish coast as they tried to reach the greek island of lesbos. 28 others were rescued when their boat got into trouble. almost 400,000 refugees have made the journey across the water this year. european leaders offered turkey money this week to help contain the wave of refugees interesting europe >> cross canada in -- prime

11:24 am
of this nation. >>reporter: both opposition leaders have strongly criticized the government for emphasizing these issues and promised to reverse some measures including the tip line. but opinion polls show some support. will it mean votes on election day? perhaps not. >> we asked almost a thousand people a day during the campaign what the most important issue is for them during the election and most people are saying the economy. >>reporter: in the end, voters will decide on monday whether what seems to be singling out muslims is a way to get elected in canada. if so, in is a very different country than it used to be. the new government cut backs in greece include pension reductions, raising the retirement age, and higher fines

11:31 am
holding a gun after shooting one of them. soon after, israeli police killed a palestinian woman who killed an officer. and in jerusalem a 16 year old was shot dead for allegedly threatening police with a knife in india's capital, two girls, age two and five have been raped in separate attack. both girls are in stable condition in hospital civilians in syria are being killed by russian air strikes. the war in syria has driven many to neighboring jordan. almost a quarter of a million people there are facing food shortages after the world food program had to stop assistance and some have also lost free medical care. >>reporter: most syrian refugees
11:32 am
in jordon who have chronic diseases are battling against the odds to get treatment. they've been left on their own after medical care for refugees was suspended because of a lack of funding. charities have stepped in where they can. the red crescent is covering the cost of dialysis treatment for 34 patients in this hospital but they still have to pay for essential medication. >> aid agencies used to give us assistance and then they cut us off. i swear my children and i cry at night. what's the solution for our tragedy? why don't they just give us poise so we can take our lives. i swear i think about suicide because i don't know what to do. >> the continuing war in syria raises concerns about whether
11:33 am
there will be any assistance for years to come. >> we're worried about funding. this patient relies on dialysis. a few sessions may be provided by grants but continuity is not guaranteed. >> on top of that, syrian refugees are not legally allowed to work in jordan. they have been forced to make difficult choices like spending less on food in order to pay for a family members treatments. and if that's not enough, last month about a third of syrian refugees lost their food assistance. many living in jordan say they have nothing left here. he has leukemia. her chemotherapy was paid for a few months but then it was suspended. >> sometimes we borrow money. sometimes my husband finds work and uses all the money for her
11:34 am
treatment. that's how we get by. we cannot afford expensive food. >> last month, the family also lost the little food assistance it had been getting from the world food program. she has an 85% chance of healing with proper treatment. her parents say if they run out of money, all they can do is pray for her. mexicos top drug lord has done it again. he's made another great escape three months after he tunnelled his way out of a maximum security prison. el chapo is thought to have sustained some injuries as he narrowly avoided recapture. our correspondent in mexico city is here with us now. how does he do it? >>reporter: well, this is the way that it panned out this time. in the mountains in northeast mexico is where he's from and where he's made his strong hold.
11:35 am
the mexican navy were apparently partially tipped off by a foreign intelligence agency which a lot of media reporting was the u.s., u.s. agencies tipped them off that he was in a ranch in this area. so the navy sent in helicopters who fired on communities and then hours after that sent in the infantry. by that time, el chapo was already gone. sources tell us he was in that area at some point. whether he was there when the helicopters attacked or had already left is unclear. but the government also said he's injured his head and also his leg. >> there must be some suspicion that he has the complicity if not collusion of some people in the authorities be it in the law enforcement authorities or in
11:36 am
politics. >>reporter: that's been the suspicion for a long, long time with him. he's a very powerful man. one of the heads of mexico's most powerful cartel. he managed to get out of prison and tunnelled underneath the walls of mexicos maximum security prison. and just this week, audio was released of that scene when he escaped from the prison and incredibly, you can hear the sound of tunnelling going into his cell and you can hear his rescuers calling up to him as he sort of leisurely puts on shoes and crawls away. that could not have happened without corruption and vast incompetence from authorities. there's the sense that once again he's put one over them in getting away but he's now nearly 60 years old, he's a diabetic and now injured and there's a sense the mexican government really have to capture him to
11:37 am
regain any sort of the prestige that they have lost in his repeated escapes from their prisons. so they're definitely after him and you have to wonder if the clock is now ticking on him the >> all right. thank you, john. more on that disturbing story of rape of two little girls that has shocked india. now, the capital city witnessed massive public outrage in 2012 after the gang rape and murder of a student. this led to the introduction of tougher laws. the number of rape cases nationwide was 37,413 last year. that's up about 11% on the year before. but the rise in delhi was way above the national average recording 1,817 cases in 2014. 26% more than previous year. the government says this is
11:38 am
because of the increasing numbers of victims who are actually coming forward to report the crimes. we'll talk now to a lawyer at indias supreme court. thank you for talking to us. this is a terrible case which could happen in any part of the world. these sorts of terrible crimes do happen all over the world, don't they? what is so awful about it happening in new delhi of course is that it comes on the back of a string of sexual assaults carried out against women. >> yes. delhi -- let me share my anguish with you. i'm completely stunned today and i'm really broken with the fact above all that we are really -- we have failed as a society. we have failed on grounds of
11:39 am
humanity. this is all the more shocking when after the death -- the grew some incidents of race. it's shameful that this crime has increased. >> following the case of 2012, the gang rape on the bus which led to the young student eventually dying of her injuries, the government did move into action and put into place some tougher legislation. but that doesn't seem to be working. it doesn't seem to be enough to change attitudes in india. >> i tell you, nothing will change unless the legislation itself carries some degree of -- and i -- menace. we need toe have the most
11:40 am
stringent laws in case. the death penalty should be the ultimate punishment for the perpetrator of the crime. it should be enough to send shivers down the spine of the prospective offender whenever he thinks of committing such a crime. >> i'm wondering if we should wonder whether it's fair that we are referring to india as always with this stigma if you like of being particularly prevalent in terms of sexual abuse of women because it happens everywhere and it's a terrible, heinous crime. does india suffer from this more than any other community? >> that's true. an increasing number of such cases forces one to believe and
11:41 am
ponder and introsuspect what is in our society. that's why i call it a menace. >> thank you very much for the time. thank you. now to thailand where the government is planning to seize the assets of the former prime minister. she was forced to step down last year during a corruption scandal which is now being highlighted in an unusual new museum. >>reporter: corruption has become an accepted part of many aspects of thai society. this so-called anticorruption museum was an unusual display of several high-profile cases. the nongovernment organization behind it aimed to educate people and send a message that the stealing must stop. >> we have a culture of
11:42 am
compromise to everyone and everything. corrupted people tend to use that as an opportunity to cheap and rob from people and our country. >>reporter: it's estimated at least $8.5 billion are lost to corruption in thailand each year. the latest case involves the former prime minister who was impeached and tried for dereliction of duty. according to critics, the program was riddled with corruption. >> it is not being looked at itself that was corrupt but it was the local politicians and cabinet members who created it. >>reporter: the rice scheme was given place in the anticorruption museum despite
11:43 am
the fact no one has been found guilty yet. there's one very powerful political force that's missing. the army which is now running the country has been involved in several high-profile cases. none more so than when it purchased hundreds of devices that could apparently detect drugs and explosives. they turned out to be useless but the price paid was around $25 million. the anticorruption commission is investigating but no one expects anything to come of it. the organizers of the museum deny they have any political motives or that they deliberately avoided highlighting military corruption >> now the internet is transforming the way we live and the changes are often for the better but not for some in australia. a new offense known as virtual murder is causing concerns for both police and internet user as andrew thomas reports from sidney. >>reporter: a text message from
11:44 am
her bank warned rhonda to check her account. when she did, she found it had been emptied probably by stealing posts from her mailbox, someone had gathered enough information to pretend they were her on the phone and carry out transactions. the bank refunded the stolen money but a second attempt was made. >> when is this going to stop? what's going to happen next. my identity will probably be used over and over again and i can't stop that. >>reporter: identity theft is a growing problem worldwide. in australia and new zealand, more than a million people have their identity compromised each year. a new help line has been established and has had over 14,000 calls in ten months. >> one in five of their clients require professional mental health support. to have your identity stolen, there's always something over your head. you don't get your identity back. >>reporter: in some cases, the
11:45 am
identity stolen are from the dead when malaysia airlines flight 17 was shot down last year, criminals saw an opportunity. >> within three days of that plane going down, mobile phones, credit cards, and social media were being used in victim's names. >>reporter: it could be getting worse. most of those buried in this grave yard died way before cyber crime came about but the next frontier in id theft is death. often now the administration of death is handled digitally. in many countries, doctors and funeral directors fill in electronic forms and death certificates are processed online. with enough information hackers can have people declared dead. you might electronically kill yourself for a life insurance payout or you might want to kill
11:46 am
someone you have a grudge against because being officially dead can be a barrier to everyday life. >> you could be dead and not even know it and i could be and you won't know until you go for a renewal and then you have to unsort the mess against you. >>reporter: virtual births are possible too. the worlds fastest growing crime is following the circle of life. andrew thomas, al jazeera. sidney. thousands of refugees fleeing violence in brundi are crossing into neighboring tanzania. overcrowding and limited resources have meant that the government is having to fall back on shuttered old camps. >>reporter: they are used to being called refugees. this is the second time they've sought refuge in neighboring
11:47 am
tanzania. they were previously repatri repatriot -- they are on the move again. >> the situation in brundi is not good because there are killings going on. i was chased by the ruling parties youth group. i ran away and even when i came back home, they came and invaded my house. >>reporter: one of the worlds biggest and most overcrowded refugee camps is home to 160,000 people. it was originally set up in the 1990s, to keep with people fleeing civil war in the drc. but authorities have had to reopen the camp. >> it's not good that you see people up and down. it's not good.
11:48 am
they will not go to school. i don't think it's good. >>reporter: many of the new arrivals say they face daily intimidation and violence especially if they did not support the ruling party. members of the security forces have also felt threatened. >> we have a few cases where the refugees have reported there are some members in the camp. we have also some police and soldiers that have also arrived. >>reporter: for his family, the new camp is a welcome sight. >> it's become like our home. no one wants to go back. there's no peace in brundi. >>reporter: families receive their own plots of land along with individual family shelters. it's worth celebrating. doubts raised about the
11:49 am
building of a new engineering wonder. government leaders insist the new project to rival the panama canal despite the stock market crash in china. >> there's growing concern over the future of the grand canal project after its main investor lost most of his foreign. >> it's causing concern. he's misled them. no one has been hired. he's not bought any property. nothing else. it's all false. >>reporter: the opponents were already questioning why the canal is needed. with a newly enlarged panama canal just a short ways to the south. they're concerned about the environmental threat to lake
11:50 am
nicaragua. and the people that possibly will be displaced. residents on the proposed route of the canal say they don't need a canal. it will only benefit rich investors. >> this project will change the physical geography of nicaragua without us knowing where the cost is coming from. >>reporter: the government is building what will not be -- full environmental assessment is carried out. >> what's important here is that the investors and we're not just talking about faith in one person, have confidence and certainty that the project is important, necessary, and bring benefits to all countries in the world. >>reporter: the $50 billion canal linking the atlantic and pacific oceans will be deeper, wider, and longer than the panama canal accommodating the
