fired and fights and suing thankfully we haven't seen that today this this friday afternoon has ended peacefully and the city slowly seems getting back to normal show ok rob mcbride with the latest from hong kong thank you and there have been as really airstrikes on gaza and rocket fire towards israel just less than 24 hours after a cease fire was agreed to has really forces an islamic fighters exchanged across a border fire the violence began on tuesday after the israeli army assassinated a senior leader of the islamic jihad in gaza 34 palestinians have been killed sense rob matheson has more from lester islam. the last few hours in gaza have been quiet since those israeli military airstrikes were taking place against what the israeli military says were islamic jihad training grounds no in real terms we understand that means open and agricultural land in gaza that was being targeted but the israeli military no saying that that operation has been concluded this followed

rockets that were fired from gaza into israel round about 10 pm on thursday night local time we don't know exactly how many rockets were fired we do have a sense that it was a smaller number than the number of rockets we have seen fired into israel over the last few days israeli military saying that at least one of those rockets had been downed by its iron dome aerial defense system this was coming at a time when things appeared to be returning to normal the crossings between gaza and israel had been reopened with goods and people moving through but also israel had reinstated the fishing limits and extended the fishing limits but for gaza fishermen as well but on thursday night islamic jihad we understand had released a video showing what it claimed to be a longer range rocket that islamic jihad had been using in the conflict in the
11:05 am
previous few days which was able to reach further into israel and it said it was all palestinian made an islamic jihad a military wing spokesman said that the group also still had its finger on the trigger and later on thursday night we saw protests in northern gaza against the cease fire and we also understand that schools on the israeli side of the gaza border have been told to stay closed on friday now in past history shows us that a cease fire between gaza and israel does not mean that conflict immediately ends that there is almost always tailing off period as it were. after the announcement of a cease fire it is possible that that is what we are going through at the moment but since the ceasefire was announced in the early hours of thursday there have been rockets fired from gaza into israel at least 3 times both sides must be wondering whether the overall cease fire may still hold libya's former president evo morales

says calling for international assistance to end its political crisis made the comments in mexico where he's been forced into exile after disputed election results. i have plenty of confidence in the u.n. because we've had extensive talks at the un secretary-general he has a lot of social conscience plenty of commitment to the poor he should be the mediator not just a facilitator accompanied by the catholic church and of pope francis is needed we should add him there's about has more. thousands of protesters around bolivia's presidential palace they came here to show support to their leader ever want to. embed william is a 25 year old student he says he's warned about what's happening in his country. it's an interim government that does not represent us it's filled with white people
11:07 am
that look at us with racism and hatred we came here to show who the original people of bolivia really are on wednesday interim president anyone yes sure in a new cabinet in a place where bolivia's mostly indigenous community was well represented and where this spirit of but mama or mother earth sacred to that community was once revered it's now been replaced with a bible across and mostly non indigenous representatives. if people are demanding the resignation of. the i mean. they're also saying that now it's time for civil war. to a seriously or and even though the new administration that they want to get by the . most a they are. not representative i like that. the government is trying to quell the protests with police and military presence on the street
11:08 am
they're also trying to paint a negative image of abel more alice and accuse him of excessive while in power by granting media access to his private quarters in the presidential palace given the vietnam record he lived like a rich man and spoke and defended the poor this is an example of something he did and everything he has robbed even morale has never allowed the media to come to the floors of the presidential house in spite of the deep divisions in this country members of moralists m a s party agreed to hold a senate meeting with the legislators of the new interim administration they fear the party will be banned and one to be allowed to participate in the elections as it's unlikely it will more or less will be allowed to run. i would suggest to the movement for socialism party that from now on they have every right to participate in the general elections but they need to start looking for a candidate evo morales is not qualified for a 4th term that's why they have been so many protests by bolivians on the streets.
11:09 am

11:10 am
authorities as being so dangerous that they can no longer stay on turkish soil and yet for the german authorities the difficulty that they face is that on the face of it these specific 7 individuals have no charges against them they cannot be charged for any activities or their participation in any activities in the middle east under german law and as i say these people are then perceived to be innocent they can go about their own lives back in germany for the government there is the serious issue that many people in this country are opposed to the return of people who the turkish government have referred to in such disparaging terms but they must also a bay the law the government just as much as these individuals it is polarizing opinion in this country and of course there are more people the turkish government says it wants to return to germany. the u.s. is reportedly threatening to hit egypt with sanctions over its plan to buy russian
