5:02 pm
israeli forces while on assignment the occupied west bank on may. the 11th that the lawyers are representing palestinian journalists, who they say were systematically targeted by israel. jennifer robinson is one of the barristers. she sans palestinian journalists are still in danger of being attacked by israeli forces as we warmed in our i. c. c. complaint, back in april. the attack, some palestinian journalist by these really defense force have been widespread and systematic. and the threat of an ongoing attacks against journalists is clear. sadly, showing up who are close. murder is a clear demonstration of the ongoing threat posed journalists and palestinian journalists reporting in the occupied territories and an urgent need to address impunity for these attacks. is there a media network has also decided to refer the killing a sri number actually to the international criminal court. the network says it's put together a team of international legal experts. al jazeera has decided to take should he and
5:03 pm
his case to i, c. c, to hold her kilo accountable and bring justice to shitty. in addition, al jazeera is exploring all legal, was a bill was civilities. and is that her mind to bring justice to sitting? and we will come every initiative to follow up on this guy. the barbara has been following the press conference in london. the key message was that there is no shortage of evidence that is ready, forces have targeted palestinian journalists carrying out their job and clearly marked as civilians in press jackets who have been either killed or maimed by israeli armed forces. not just him in recent times, going back to 2018 and the guns a border protests in which 2 of the cases in which the initial complaint,
5:04 pm
the i t. c. a centering on, but going right back many, many years. there are, there are many different journalists bodies around the world who have different figures, depending on when you start. but it runs into the doesn't since the year 2000. and that's journalists who have been killed in the occupied palestinian territory. most of them were palestinian generalists. all of them were civilians, clearly mart doing their job. and in the eyes of those journalists targeted for doing so. because as we've heard, israel does not recognize the international federation of journalist press card in effect de legitimizing palestinian journalists. rob matheson is in the occupied east, jerusalem. he says, palestinians are hopeful that the c, c will take legal action against israel. the cases that are being put forward to
5:05 pm
the i c. c, for their consideration that we've been talking about are only a small fraction of the number of cases where journalists have been killed or attacks in this region over many years. now in almost. 6 cases, there has never yet been a prosecution that brought where somebody has been held accountable and somebody has been found guilty and somebody has been punished. and as a result, the palestinians are very cautious about being showing any sort of confidence that the this latest development and as far as the international criminal court is concerned, is actually going to give any sort of justice as they would see it. while the palestinian authority has carried out its own investigation, it has concluded that the bullet that was fired but killed sharon did come from the weapon. elvin israeli soldier. it still has the bullet and it is not prepared to share it with any israeli investigation because it's about to quoted. it basically doesn't trust israelis. israeli military, for its part,
5:06 pm
is holding its own internal investigation. but that's what happens in every case such as this is really military police are not going to carry out a criminal investigation because they say there was no criminal act. so as far as palestinians are concerned, that's kind of gray area, that kind of lack of transparency that you see here on a regular basis doesn't really give them a lot. a lot of optimism for this case that may go to the i. c. c should consider it, but one thing that is interesting is that the palestinians are very aware that the i c c has said that it's jurisdiction now covers the palestinian occupied territories. and israel as well. israel doesn't recognize of course the, the i c c. but as far as the palestinians are concerned, this is essentially a test case for the i see, see if it doesn't meet the mark as far as the palestinians are concerned. if it doesn't investigate this, or the investigation takes a long time. as far as the palestinians are concerned, the i c. c will have virtually no credibility to tune. funerals are being planned

5:10 pm
white house correspondent, i mean, that seems to be some positive talk. kimberly, in the corridors of power over gun control. but it's sort of the type of legislation that still the gray area that everyone can agree on. after this tragedy happened, many people shrugged their shoulders and resigned themselves to the fact that this is what happens in america. and nothing will change. but in the last day or so, there have been some hopeful signs that perhaps this time might be different. what we're seeing is some talking among a bipartisan group of 10 senators. and why this is significant is that in the past, what we've seen is legislation to prevent tragedy, such as we've seen in texas this week have passed in the house of representatives, which is the lower chamber of commerce congress. but then when it gets up to the upper chamber of the senate, aide is blocked by a handful of republicans. but this time lows,
5:11 pm
republican seemed to be willing to work with some of their democratic counterparts . and why this is significant is that in a 100 person senate, where you have roughly a 5050 split of democrats and republicans, you actually need 60, in order to pass legislation. that's why when democrats are on board, they're going to need republicans at least 10 to get some of this legislation through. and that's why this was a hopeful sign. what we see are some republicans willing to talk about potentially entertaining legislation that would include red flag laws that would take hand guns out of the hands of people that are mentally ill and potentially could cause harm to others. expanded background checks more funds for school security and even potentially looking into an assault weapons ban one, like we saw back in the ninety's, the president joe biden worked on what he was a senator. it was in place for 10 years. it drastically cut the number of
5:12 pm
incidences like we've seen in texas this week was allowed to expire. there was an attempt to try and bring it back in 2013 that failed. but now we're seeing some hopeful signs that there may be a vote. and some sort of legislation that include some components of what we've just outlined, maybe as early as june. kimberly, thanks very much for the other can be how could that for us? oh, warranties correspondent not fighting in the democratic republic of congo has fullest illness, 40000 people from their homes. and just for days. government forces a battling rebels from the m. 23 group. when congress, the seeking refuge and neighboring uganda, a government official last as result of the stretched to breaking point kenya was due to host talks between rebel leaders and the d. r. c president. but those meetings have been delayed. malcolm web has more from nairobi. what are the few days? the $23.00 rebel group is fighters took controls,
