4:09 pm
weapons, which are g parked anti aircraft systems, basically cheap guys. they also called in english. it took a while for germany to make this decision. as i said, there was a lot of pressure, not only from within nato, also from the united states, but also from we did the own government, especially the chancellor. all of shows was accused for not doing enough to help you crane. and you have to understand, of course, the history germany has been reluctant, basically not sending any military equipment to any other country, any war because of what happened during world war 2. it's basically something that they have maintained for so many years. but now, because of the war and ukraine and all the images that also have reached the german public here, that seems to be quite a turn around. we have to say also that there will be 20 ukranian soldiers coming to germany next week to get training to operate the howitzer hillary system. thank
4:10 pm
you. morehead on the news, including northern on and looks, that's a big change in political leadership. we look at what that means for the future. growing anger, another big day of action should banker against the government humbling economic crisis. i met magic how the new york i told us that biggest combatants with the action lays in schools. ah. now police in israel are searching for 2 men, suspected of a stabbing attack in the central city of lag. they've released pictures of the pair . 3 people were killed and several others injured. and thursday's attack funeral for one of the victims has been taking place. the attack happened as people
4:11 pm
celebrated what israel referred to as independence day while the stephanie decker joins us live now in that west jerusalem. and, well, what's the latest on the search? you can tell us well, it's still law ongoing. you mentioned there are these ready police issuing pictures of the to one of the 19 years old. the other 120, from the village of amana close to jeanine in the occupied west bank. the city of a lad in central israel is very close to the occupied west bank from what we understand. both these men were working in a land illegally. and this is something that does happen. you have tens of thousands of palestinians who cross into israel looking for work without any official permits. so this is the situation at the moment. these radio security forces searching for both these men, which is why that issued these pictures. they've had roadblocks. security has
4:12 pm
increased in a lad or using helicopters, but certainly this happened as israel was celebrating at 74th year of existence. and again, you know, it's causing tensions. and things had been relatively more peaceful here and the last or end of the last 2 weeks or so. we've seen other attacks of this nature of the last 2 months until i've even basheba killing now around 18 israelis civilians. so there's been condemnation from all sides. also president mahmoud abbas, but have mass in garza praising the attack. so the so, you know, just gives you a sense of the complications on the ground. but certainly at the moment the man hunt continues for these 2 men, or for now stephanie decker. thank you for that. update. counting is underway in elections for northern honors. regional assembly were a party that wants to leave the u. k. could come out on top trim phone was once the
4:13 pm
political wing of an armed move and sort of posed british rule. a win for the nationalist shin, feign as opinion polls predict, would make history in northern ireland. it up ends a century of dominance by parties dedicated to the union with great britain putting on top a republican party that exists to forge a united ireland. that isn't going to happen imminently. and many voters with suede, instead by more immediate concerns, all united allens on the cardinal data, on up to important in the form of what you think the other chief chief of of us for to get the rates will get better and better hospitals. so just to open game sheet frame was once the political face of the irish republican army that waged a decades long conflict with the british army and pro british loyalist paramilitaries
4:14 pm
. its electoral success with struck fear into the heart of many unionists who already feel marginalized by westminster as handling of breakfast negotiations with the you and a new trade border in the i receive that they say undermines northern islands place within the united kingdom that need to get a wake up call my. nobody wants to ship fare minister. the union. people don't want to ship a minister coach for 1st, 1st and foremost. if we have it, then you're going to call for a border pull. and there's no died if there's even a question mark over whether the democratic unionist party leader will take up his position as deputy 1st minister behind. shin feigns michel o niel. jeffrey donaldson says he wants to see border protocol removed 1st. in northern ireland, symbolism matters hugely. so while power sharing enshrined in the good friday peace agreement ensures that the positions of 1st minister and deputy 1st minister shared
4:15 pm
between the largest unionist nationalists parties have exactly equal powers. the changing of places in the store months assembly in this election carries enormous symbolic way. unionism isn't a very unfair place. northern ireland had its antique re last year, the celebrations of rather muted. and there was a sense of the future of the union, very much being at stake and partly because breaks it and what that means. the northern ireland change relationship between overland and the u. k. with all agreements in the protocol. and that also what's going on with in unionism itself, it's very fragmented. and with that fragmentation comes the fun certainty over political stability in the short term and longer term questions about the future of northern ireland itself. joe al, jazeera belfast, or under the 998 good friday peace agreement. not not as main republicans in the
4:16 pm
unionist rivals have to share power. the government must have representatives from republican parties who want a single and an unionists who believe north not and should remain part of the u. k . a unionists and the republicans take the 2 top jobs in parliament. the storms with equal powers. one cannot be in position without the other since not in creation in 1921. it unionists have dominated the storms. meaning that so far the 1st minister has always been a unionist. duncan maro is a professor of politics at also university. he says there are 3 issues to consider on one side and a very narrow group. the union is that population, some of it, it's very exercise by the consequence of the protocol and by the whole break debates still and how that was worked out in northern ireland. but there are minority. there's another group probably within the nation group who quite came to get the symbolic way of seeing champagne at the top of the pile. and even though it
4:17 pm
doesn't actually change the arrangement very much, but it is a big symbolic victory and then their ethnic group. and that may be the biggest growing group in the action of people who actually we need to find a compromise here. but in the meantime, there are lots and lots of practical issues under for getting worse, because the economic situation thinks that after the war and ukraine, it may be that if you're looking at numbers rather than them both the biggest winners or the group in the middle the union, as parties have, they know that they may not even go back into government, that they may call the political crisis if in fact the, they don't become the largest party. the good friday agreement is the overarching structure and how the, you know, that there must be this correlation between people. obviously if either they are not prepared to work it anymore. it become very difficult. the difficulty, of course, being that previously when that happened, there were strong relationships between the iris government and the british
4:18 pm
government. which if you like, could referee or at least put things together at the crisis, emerged. one of our definitely brag to the those relations have been strain. so we're in site in new territory here. the future of the good friday agreement, everybody a publicly committed of course, to pay. and we certainly think that the vast majority and people here do not want to go anywhere near violence by the same time. it's always very fragile and very unstable. so every time there are concerns and the good friday agreement itself and the future, the good friday agreement could be at stake, depending on what the systems are taken after the lesson of britain's opposition leader is being investigated for a potential breach of coven 19 lockdown rules. please confirm they're looking into footage of that labor parties, care star merchant in alcohol with colleagues indoors in april last year. stomach has led calls for prime minister or as johnston and finance minister. she seen act to resign or to being fine for downing street birthday celebration. and in the wake
4:19 pm
of what's become known as the party gate scandal, they have been key losses and local elections for voice. johnson's conservatives, they've lost control of several areas of london, while labor and a liberal democrats have gained ground. vote is the 1st major test for johnson since party 8, and the war in ukraine. under simmons is in that westminster at forest. andrew, something of a tough night, the conservatives, but boys johnson has come out to speak hasn't what's even say what he said precisely that it was a tough night in places. it was a colossally bad night here in london because there were losses in westminster for the very 1st time. 1964 was when westminster city council was formed. margaret thatcher described it as the later as the her, the pride of her, of her councils, along with another one ones with now both of those barriers. a city councils have
4:20 pm
been taken by labor. that is a major developments, a barn. it's also a went to labor elsewhere in the country. there have been modest gains and there is a acceptance by the conservatives that it was a bad night. it wasn't good and it was disappointing. but the word disastrous isn't used at all. and the suggestion is that if there was a general election again, they would win for as johnston has been a negative factor, there's no doubt about that on the doorsteps. a good with campaigners from all parties fighting. that's the case party gates, along with a whole other areas of controversy, but party game. now it is a major issue. and also we're hearing bit from the durham police that kiss darma is to be re investigated about an incident last year in which he was drinking beer with colleagues or an m p. 's office inside a building. and i was originally put by the side by the, by the police,
4:21 pm
but now they're re investigating it based on new evidence apparently. so that has been thrown into the mix after the vote. it would have influenced it, but certainly that is an area of concern for some people. and in general, in the northern, the red wall, as it's known, the area that was devastated by the conservatives in 2019 labor hasn't done too well. let's talk now to someone who's common states a lot on labor, a general, the political commentator, an analysts, jonathan liz, thank you for joining us on the new south. what's your assessment briefly of what's happened here? i think it's been a really bad night for the concert. it's not just in london or where as you say, labor is. may, tamara gains are in a 3 council so far, but also across the country? the fact that labor hasn't actually made a lot of gains, for example, in the north, in the so called red wool are which labor took, which was labor loss, sorry,
4:22 pm
in 2019. the conservatives isn't actually that bad for labor because these counts the results are being compared to 2018 when labor actually worse, the party that represented those seats. so through the situation is the same between now and 2018 is suggest that labor could actually be on cause to take back some of those seats that had lost the consensus in the general election 3 years ago with a lot of fir labor m. p. 's and indeed gear storm himself aren't necessarily referring to 2018 the last lecture referring to the general election in 2090. and they're saying that they would win, or if it was to happen now that there they are in much better place. but the conservatives are rightly pointing out this would not necessarily based on what we've heard so far, mean a labor victory. obviously, local elections there sometimes quite difficult to analyze and to extrapolate nationwide are projections from because they deal with local issues in many ways.
4:23 pm
but i think his up see if that say the labor is building ground, the conservatives are stalling or they're losing a lot of councils these. i think mr. very credible base on which to build belabor. it's not going to be a landslide election victory at the next election of labor. storm is not tony blair . that doesn't mean however, the labor can't win. let's cut to borrows johnson. now party gate is here, liability. does it seem that way? absolutely. and that is why a lot of concerns were actually our branding themselves as local conservatives to distance themselves from the westminster party because they know the miss johnson. i doesn't have any idea the cost of living crisis or which is going to plunge a lot of people in britain into poverty and oversee this part, gate route is going on and on. and both boys dorsey could be about to receive more fines from the metropolitan police. yes, the, the jury is out on that wall. and what about this development on kiss darma that durham police? now we investigate, obviously the hard news, the case darma i, he wanted to put very clear water between himself and the conservative party on
4:24 pm
this. or there was immense pressure from the daily mail i principally, and also some lunch there to them. he's to reopen this investigation is over to little little labels, concert cons conserves is supporting papers and also concerted appeased to reopen. are this investigation that's not going to happen? of the none of us knows what will happen. stormers are offered a credible explanation of what happened if, if he does, if he has bounces broken the law that soci very damaging for him. i'm not sure it means we'll have to resign, but it will mean that a staying is taken as part of the boys. johnson and boys johnson were probably had a better chance of getting away with it. but is this is your overall assessment that britain should think that, that labor party is fit to government and kissed armor as a credible enough figure out to be prime minister? does that, does that sort of ring with you from these results? absolutely. are labor is making gains in london is making gains the south as well. south hampton, i was a labor gained from london. we talk a lot about the red wool. not as much about the blue wool. and the seas in the south and west are which the concert is upheld for
4:25 pm
a long time. i. labor hasn't made big losses or in its red rule like you did in 2019, i think is a very credible basis and foundation on which to build labor is not guaranteed to win anything, but they sounded very good chance. and if i guessed armor, i be very reassured by these results. ok, thank you very much, jonathan liz. and just to add to that, that server smaller part is the liberal democrats of may very significant gains, and also the green party that they're not to be forgotten. they've done very well so far more results to come in scotland and from wales, especially. okay, for now, andrew simmons in westminster. thank you. now there's been another nationwide strike in sri lanka, the latest protest among the governments resignation. millions of workers stayed away from work on friday. his anger mounts against the worst economic crisis in 70 years. i've been months of power cuts and shortages of food. few medicines, no fernandez, has more not from columbia housings of government workers like these trade union
4:26 pm
members of the shall, uncommon, port have joined in the works to operate on the heart of tal as it is locally called, effectively crippling all government services as well as public life obviously can see the security watching carefully as the sort of demonstration by these workers happen. and it is across the boards, whether it is the health services, where they the transport services, as well as the general, you know, shops and day to day, which have put out black flags and shut down for the day. and these are the cards that keep the heart of sher lancoste, trade capital moving. but as you can see, all of them parked as all business ers have lent their support to the strike or the hospital. now it's millions of rupees worth of business that these people are foregoing, but they say that they have to take a stand to lend support to the campaign,
4:27 pm

4:31 pm
says it's gathered evidence of war crimes by russian forces in ukraine. the criminal denies committing any atrocities. but amnesty is chief, says there are clear signs that cross to munitions have been used as well as the abuse of civilians and extra judicial killings. we know they are popped other back to him that as characterized rush. yes, conduct of the or steely tease from the outset. a repeated pattern large in scale, and they by stating in impact. well on a tele rivera is a senior crisis response advisor at amherst international. she joins us live not from here. thanks for being with us here. today or what kind of 1st hand reports have been uncovered. so i spend the past 4 weeks hearing ukraine investigating gross human rights abuses,
4:32 pm
violation of international humanitarian law, some which constitute work crimes. in the areas north of the capital and our findings as we presenting them today, concern the air bombardment of several residential buildings in bought a car where more than for disability and were killed. these were strikes that also left hundreds and hundreds of families, thousands of individuals, homeless, munitions that were used by russian forces attach a large payload that they course enormous destruction beyond the point of impact. these attacks were both disproportionate and indiscriminate, and such may constitute war crimes. i also investigated exteriors of extra judicial execution in a number of villages to the noise of the capital in the town of boot child that
4:33 pm
many will have heard, but also in towns and villages all around the area where i found the same patterns or banks or judicial executions, all men who were either shot dead on the spot or who were detained and subsequently exist traditionally executed in one area in boucher. i also found that that are very particular because they can only be fired by certain vice balls. and we know that does rights bold, i or you are if you to certain in the or seems of the russian horses in the same area. we also came across military documents that indicate the presence of some of the unique russian food says are using these particular type of rifles.
4:34 pm
so there is clear evidence stream of evidence of war crimes. and in certain cases, when it comes to extra to the shall aid situation in some bases linking to specific to parts of the rational ok. so all this material that you mentioned has been collated, but what actually happens next? well, what happened next and what needs to continue to happen as the conflict unfolds because unfortunately, we see no signs of the end big. it is crucially important that all available evidence is collected as soon as possible before before the area changes before the buildings are demolished, before all of the remain munitions and so on their career. and the evidence is properly preserved. so that's eastern when at some dates in the future,
4:35 pm
because i'm fortunate, maybe she's not going to happen today or tomorrow. but when the possibility arises for prosecuting the perpetrator holding the traces to account, the evidence will have been connect to them present to the reply. it's time to stand up in a court of law realistically, though. is there much chance of holding anyone to account for what's being alleged in the future? yes, there is. as i said, this case, the stake a long time being best against them themselves. take time because they need to be rigorous and detailed. and also this situation factor today means that, you know, i'm not very likely. sure. but we've seen in other conflicts more that have been brought to justice to the rates by the international criminal court or in
4:36 pm
the individual countries having rich voice, international jurisdiction. you know, that k do more or to decade after the event. busy so this is certainly not something that is going to happen immediately. and for that reason he's very important that the expectations of him so obviously wish to see the perpetrates is being brought to justice. very swiftly. that does expectation be managed because this is his work that needs to be done in the long term. ok. on a tenant, senior crisis response. advice at amnesty international. thank you for joining us from keith. thank you. now authorities in fiji has seized a super yard owned by a sanctioned russian businessman of a request or the united states. $300000000.00 vessel is believed to belong to

a favorite to become the country's next president. ferdinand marcos junior is riding a wave of public support despite the notoriety of his late father. so in st. louis reports from manila. these are replicas of some of the jewelry belonging to imelda marcos, part of a stash. she tried to smuggle out of the philippines after her husband, precedent, sudden, and marcus was ousted in people's uprising in 1986. the artist, po, about was partly inspired by his parents who are anti marcos activists. the marcus is vast collection of valuable paintings are also on display, reproduced on postcards, visitors. i encouraged to take some home away to reclaim what the artist says belongs to filipinos. it helps us to remember what the marcia long period was about and how the marcus's use art and culture. oh,
