hundred others were injured and the u.n. says half of those are wounded by life fire united nations has called for an investigation into the violence but the us blocked a security council trafford solution condemning israel's use of force to sarasota delaminate has more from the gaza israel border. more and more videos are emerging about what exactly unfolded at the border fence on friday and from the evidence on many of the videos it seems that israel was shooting quite randomly at protesters now israel had warned in the days leading up to the friday protests that it will have this zero tolerance policy that it also had announce that it had the brilliant all these elite snipers about one hundred of them all along the border however after friday israel also said that among the protesters they were armed people there is no evidence so far of that noise that any evidence that petrol bombs where
hurled across the fence as the israeli army says the organizers of the sittin here and of the protests keep on saying that they want this to be a peaceful protest they made their utmost to make sure that no one was arwa no one was going to shoot at the israeli soldiers the tents behind me are pretty empty now just because yes they going to stay here for six weeks but people also have a daily life to go back to so they go to work they go to school they go to university but in the afternoon and certainly on weekends the students will have thousands of people just as what we have seen on friday a large fire in yemen has destroyed tons of much needed humanitarian supplies the fire burnt on warehouses in the rubble help port city who data halted urging and has more. yemeni firefighters did all they could to stop the flames. but more. than fifty tonnes of critically needed food and relief supplies were lost
the five warehouses in the rebel held port city of what died were being used by the united nations food program the red sea port has been a lifeline for people in the war torn country. that had the thought of being controlled from the beginning it wouldn't have reached this extent by sunrise the fire was huge warehouses and putting in the fall was expanding in spreading from store to store. the u.n. says it's investigating but some port workers are blaming an electrical short circuit. and that has. caught the news of this fire from the governor right a parade when we arrived here we found a lot of safety and security negligence and this has led to a huge spread of fire all over the place. the internationally recognized government of yemen is blaming the rebels that hold the port it says the criminals behind this fire should be punished yemen is one of the world's poorest countries.
the three year war between iran backed with the rebels and the saudi backed yemeni government in exile has left more than ten thousand people dead there are also outbreaks of cholera and diptheria. this warehouse fire is a further setback for those trying to help civilians in what the u.n. calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis paltrow dirge on al-jazeera. the u.s. and south korea have military trials after a pause during the winter olympics only twelve thousand u.s. troops will join about three hundred thousand south korean soldiers for the largest annual exercises between the two nations. more from seoul. these annual joint military drills usually take place earlier in the year but they were delayed so as not to coincide with the winter olympics and paralympics that were taking place here in south korea north korea usually react angrily to drills like this calling
them a rehearsal for an invasion even though the u.s. and south korea say they are defensive in nature but of course lately there has been a more peaceful atmosphere here on the korean peninsula and in light of that it seems that these drills are likely to be more low key the scale will be the same as in previous years but instead of running for two months they are expected to run for one month of course that is a time when will there is a lead up to a summit meeting between the leaders of north and south korea and plans for a possible meeting between the leader of north korea kim jong un and the u.s. president donald trump so another sign of a more cooperative atmosphere between the two koreas and indeed between the u.s. and north korea with shorter drills planned and we're not likely to see what's known as strategic assets including nuclear powered aircraft carriers this time around at the same time in another sign of the cooperation between the two koreas

a common complaint from iraqis who feel the government has abandoned them the iraqi government is seeking money to rebuild for meisel areas it's appealing to the international community for help and says it needs one hundred billion dollars nowhere near enough cash has been played so far people like no idea how to contact in return because there's nothing to return to the house is destroyed in a family scattered across refugee camps and rented accommodations in northern iraq she herself lives in erbil but this is home to me often. all of my belongings were looted and the house is destroyed i'm left with nothing at all i live in a rental and. i can't return my health is deteriorating and i need medical attention my husband suffers two in baghdad the christian community was spared much of the violence the others faced on the eisel even here in baghdad churches are hidden away behind lost walls and tight security now religious leaders in the
