there is carter being bused through and so that you should be maintained in the european council as we have been up to now. so that's important to continue. but such an upbeat assessment was soon dashed by the e leader with the friendliest relations with vladimir putin hunger as recently reelected prime minister victor or ban has 4 weeks been the one to oppose the oil ban, to win him over to now being proposed that to begin with the bam will only apply to oil that com on ships from russia not supplies that are delivered by pipeline. but mr. all been told reporters, there was no deal yet. let me the little the we are in a very difficult situation. ah, basically because of the responsible behavior of the commission, the head of the commission didn't address such criticism. but she did suggest there wouldn't be a breakthrough during this meeting, which we are not there yet. but it has mature for shawn. my expectations are know that it will be solved in the next 48 hours, but i'm confident that there,
after there will be a possibility. the european leaders we're joined by video link from key by presence lensky, a show of unity and solidarity for ukraine. but all last is rather overshadowed by the continuing impasse on sanctions. james bays al jazeera brussels, or in his video massaging cranium present. laudermill zalinski urged the blocks leaders to bury their differences and agree on sanctions. that is to move probably mid this would you each water finally will. all quarrels in europe must end it until it is good that only incurred russia to put more pressure news on the whole of europe. now that the sick sciences package must be agreed unseen. if it must be effective or including oil, to make russia fill the consequences, or what is doing to ukraine and the whole of europe. to me is that let's just take a look at what's been done on the part of brussels to help ukraine so far. the block is saying it's mobilized about 4 and
a half $1000000000.00 in financial and humanitarian aid spent about $2000000000.00 on military assistance. individual e countries of also donated large amounts of arms and heavy weaponry such as tanks and artillery. the e is also passed its harshest ever sanctions against russia, but member states are struggling to each consensus on whether to ban energy in ports. mcqueen is also pushed forward. it's been to join the european union, but france has warned that could take decades. or fans has also demanded an investigation after a french charlotte was killed in easton ukraine, 32 year old frederick le clerk him off was fatally hit by shrapnel while covering the ukrainian evacuation operation happened, as francis knew, foreign minister was on a visit in keith and with a promise of weapons to help in the war with russia. algiers saying bas ravi reports now from cave. france's new foreign minister
catherine calona began her visit to ukraine by paying her respects to the dead in boucher ukrainians. describe what happened to civilians at the hands of russian forces as war crimes suggest the sentence. we must tell us that they should never have happened here. and it shouldn't happen again from stand with it fred. it's allies to do what ever possible was to bring back peace support and solidarity likely to help paris reset relations with keith. ukraine has accused france of siding with russia as the war carries on, the hope is france. diplomacy with moscow will help ease russia's blockade of ukrainian ports and restart the export of ukrainian crops vital to the global food supply. but that is not all ukraine. hulsy chavonee. sure. i stress today during the meeting that ukraine's need of additional artillery systems of $150.00.
5 caliber remains extremely important to win the battle for don bass. we need to significantly strengthen our artillery potential to another bus. you a clear message from colonus counterpart, ukrainians who have been paying the price for russian aggression in lives for years, need more help. her trip was underlined by a cruel coincidence. the brutality of the war brought closer to home with the death of a french journalist covering the war, frederick lick clerk im off from b f mtv was killed by showing of the law husk region while accompanying an armored mission to evacuate civilians. colona called for an investigation into his death. the number of journalists killed covering the war now stands at 20 for the war towns and villages in the east and south has become a patchwork of fighting. the spotlight is currently on separate. that's one of 2 cities in the husk region,
still barely under ukrainian control. the russian siege of the city has come at a high price in lives and military assets on both sides the phone with a lot of medical weapons and ammunition left behind on the battlefield. this russian soldier says are from ukraine's western allies, even as they collect trophies and conquered territory. what they considered decisive battles may not be over what your friends is sending ukraine more help. during her visit, the french foreign minister said that her government will be committing more essential equipment to ukraine, fire trucks and ambulances to help cope with your daily bombardment of rushes, villages, towns and cities, but more crucially heavy artillery long range howitzers that it is hoped will help turn the tide of this war in ukraine's favor vain basra, the oldest era. ah,
now israel defense minister benny gowns is calling for 2 extreme right wing jewish groups to be declared at tara organisations, members of la familia and la, hover were at the forefront of violence against palestinians on sunday, when tens of thousands of israelis marched through east jerusalem to mark the anniversary of its occupation in long con has more in this the 2 groups he's talking about all the hava and la familia, la familia, is a full hooligan organization. there's no other way of describing them. other than that, they follow jerusalem by tom, but they've been accused of races behavior of attacking palestinian israelis. arabs, and they both have been accused of criminal activity lava. oh, a religious ojo nationalist organization that dedicated to the purity of jewish blood. they don't want any arabs, any palestinian israelis in historical palestine at all. they want rid of them all and they espouse things like attacking people. if they find out that they're in
a mixed relationship. so that's those, the kind of groups are talking about. but this message, it doesn't mean that those groups will be designated any time soon a and find out what might happen is that this could take quite a while because there has to be a wide agreement between all of those members of the coalition for it to go forward and that's very difficult. the other thing that natalia bennett needs to worry about is the language we saw the jerusalem flag box, those insults that hate speech. death, arabs insulting the gymnast colin and terrorist, you know, we are there. that's exactly what i experienced. all of that may mean that another palestinian israeli member, the kinessa key member of the coalition, resigns. if that happens, the coalition falls to pieces. the government falls on this early elections when at least one person was injured. when is riley forces tried to disperse palestinian protest as in the occupied westbank on monday, a demonstrating against a group of israeli out nationalists who had marched to hebron. my thing is rein
flags. the policy in prime minister describe violence in occupied east jerusalem as aggression which crossed all red lines. some items, the shower israel yesterday has crossed all red lines and international treaty. it's reputed aggression against alexa and jerusalem. all of it attempts to impose a reality that doesn't align a historical status quo of or lacks a mosque in jobs or who are customer. all the use delegation in the west bank and gaza is held a reception ceremony to mark europe day with some of its some of its dedicated alger there. janice tree and apple app claim sharing was shot in the head by israel forces while an assignment in jeanine at abraham was at the event in the occupied west bank. when we entered the reception here, there was a poster of her. she's here in spirit. people are talking about her, i just eat

gorilla and a rightly populous. i'm rob reynolds along the banks of the klamath river in northern california where the biggest damn removal in us history will soon get under way. ah, it's the last day of may, here's your forecast for europe in africa. hey everyone. so it's just a few days ago. rome set a temperature record for the month of may. and once again we're seeing those temperatures hot up over the next few days. so i think once again, rome will break a temperature record for the month of june, and it's going to happen probably within the 1st day or 2 of the month. so the number to be 36.8. we've got yen at 36 on wednesday and up to 37 on thursday with wall to wall sunshine. lot of sun for greece and turkey is settled conditions here,

head of state because she has done absolutely nothing. what these country white mad, where is the progress? i haven't seen enough racialized do. sports journalist, i look like me if you need to listen to those voice perspectives even when it's hard it when it challenges some of our foundational thinking. this green on al jazeera lou. ah, welcome back. look at the main stories this our now you lead is meeting in brussels is struggling to reach consensus over proposed embargo on russian oil hungry is leading a group of countries that rely heavily on washing energy in a so far refused to sign on francis school for an investigation to the death of
a french john list killed in ukraine's la hans region grading official site frederick the clock. him off was killed when russian shelling hit a vehicle that was evacuating civilians. and israel's defense ministry school for to out to national. rightfully groups to be declared and tara organizations, the groups were at the forefront of violence against palestinians during upgrade to jerusalem's old city on sunday. well now in other news, the following chinese foreign minister is urged 10. pacific island nations not to be nervous about his country's aims in the region. after fighting to strike, a sweeping you agreement on trade and security, one e as in fiji as part of the term of the pacific wire diplomatic battle for power and influences. brewing between china and the west. wayne hay reports now from the for jan capitol suva. as pacific island nation slowly emerged from the covert,
19 pandemic, and new diplomatic battle is under way and china is on the offensive. rebuilding the regions, economies will take time and outside assistance, and beijing is extending a helping hand, leaving job or don't be too anxious and don't be too nervous. because the common development and prosperity of china and all the other developing countries would only mean greater harmony, greater justice and greater progress of the whole world. the latest stop on chinese foreign minister, one year, 10 day tour of the pacific was b g, where he met prime minister frank binding. madame a jill political point scoring means less than little to anyone who's a community is slipping beneath the rising seas. whose job has been lost or pandemic, or whose family is impacted by that ip address in the price of commodities. the main feature of his visit to suva was supposed to be the signing of an agreement
with foreign ministers from 10 countries. but it didn't happen. the so called common development vision outlines wide ranging plans to improve relations between china and the island nations, including increased cooperation on security. last month, aging, signed a security packed with the solomon islands, that some observers say may lead to a permanent chinese military presence there. this vast region, again, finds itself caught in the middle of a much wider struggle for power and influence at the moment being courted economically, isn't a bad situation for these countries to be in. but the areas strategic importance has many worried that that struggle could be taken to a dangerous new level. the pacific nations are also on the front lines of climate change. and that's been a feature of the foreign ministers to many countries here are at risk from rising sea levels. and there's a sense there concerns haven't been taken seriously enough by regional powers, australia, and new zealand. despite that, experts, a fiji in particular isn't going to sign any agreements that will harm relations
with its allies. figured as i want to have. i think i'm too much dependence on any one country. ah, and it's, it's very, i think important for fiji to have good relationships with all the major powers. one ye may not have secured the regional deal he was hoping for, but the chinese will be taking a long term view of their pacific relationships. this has been a highly visible to us so far and that in itself may be viewed as a success. wayne, hey, al jazeera soother fiji, which heiner insist that its corporation with pacific entrees is only growing stronger. katrina, you has more on that spectrum now from beijing. here, one year's trip to the pacific islands is being viewed as a diplomatic success and a demonstration of the failure of western countries to contain china's influence in this region. now what has been covered by chinese state media here isn't the lack of consensus about any sort of agreement. instead,
what they've emphasize is the rule. welcome one. v has received a by fijian leaders and other leaders in the south pacific chinese president. she didn't paying also sent a written address or speech ahead of time to those lead is expressing the deep friendship of china long history of this friendship between china and this region. he said that china use all countries big or small as equal and that it will continue to have good relationships with these countries of brotherhood. he mentioned who i think baiting is at pains to emphasize that china is reaching out to these countries in a very friendly way that it does not want to exert any undue influence. paging has denied that it plans to militarize this zone. and it's also trying to say that even if you have good relationship with good relations with us or australia, china will not make you choose wanna go to columbia. now because a former left,
his gorilla fighter has come out on top and the 1st round of the countries presidential election. but gustavo petro did not win enough votes to avoid a run off race against his right when challenger rodolfo hernandez on a summer run ramp, yet he reports from the capital bogota. it's any story the result for a leftist candidate in columbia, more than 8 and a half 1000000 votes from a rebel fighter, gustavo faith. looking clearly on top in the 1st round of the presidential election, running on the promise of profound economic and social change, pedro managed to get 40 percent of the vote. 10 percentage shorts of what do you need this for an outright victory? or hoping to come up with us because there are changes that are empty. there are changes that don't lead to real change. we want to invite all of columbia in society to embrace real change yet the success was diminished by the surprise. second place over the flat man, this
a 77 year old business man who rose in the polls in the last 2 weeks as an unexpected and corruption crusader given. and this a former mayor of the city of hooker among managed to present himself as an alternative and say establishment candidate. despite being investigated himself for a number of wrong doing, he has been compared to a colombian version of from and in the past said he was an admirer of those hitler . yes, his message connected with many frustrated columbia voters in a campaign mostly conducted on social media. or he saw a most guy. you're not alone. we see that citizens have the will to incorruption as a system of government. today, the country of cheap politics, incorruption lawsuit, better the crew up to thought they would govern forever. last say that over here is the defeated candidates back by the traditional establishment. immediately endorsed this for the run off against what he calls to the dangers of
a patron presidency. and it is potentially set forth around and had to campaign with really confidence that kevin, around when no one gave him a strong association with the right, with savage man, the whole situation changes. now, given his anti establishment, this course is the origins outside of politics. he's most clearly an outsider. the main takeaway here is that these results represent, 1st and foremost, as founding blow to columbia traditional conservative establishment. the question for gustavo federal though is that if you now will be able to convince enough people that voted for those for it man this, that he represents the true change that columbia needs allison, that i'm picked the, i'll just, you know, both that more protests of broken out in sudan, this by apparent attempts by military leaders to play kate demonstrates his state
emergency and post after the army seize power. last october was lifted on some day more than 60 detainees of also been released, governing military councils. i hope the move would facilitate fruitful and meaningful dialogue, but nearly 100 people have been killed in a series of mass protest against the armies takeover. morgan brings this one out from him. the lifting of the state of emergency by the head of the sovereignty council and the head of the army, general abdel albert hon, seems to have no impact on protesters on monday evening. once again, they took to the streets to voice their anger against the military. now one thing that they have been repeatedly saying is that they don't recognize the military empower and life any decision said the military make including the decision up and listen to the emergency. they never recognize the state of emergency in the 1st place. one thing that emergency allowed for was security forces arresting people and detaining them from the protest and political activist as well. at least
63 protective were released as well as political detainees were released following the decision to live the state of emergency. the protesters once again took the district and they're expected to once again, go out and demand the military hand of authorities develop on june. 3rd, that's the day that come on the rates. the anniversary of an attack on approved democracy in front of the army headquarters in 2019. now the political parties here today have welcome to move to live that day to do maintenance which was imposed on the day of the takeover last year. but they said that's not enough. they say it's paid way for with the indirectly or directly between the political parties and the military. but they seem more need to be done to create a more conducive environment. and for fruitful talks, the united nations mission here has also welcomed the lifting of the state of emergency. they've been calling for that move for weeks. now, seeing that it will precipitate, it will help facilitate talks between the various political parties here to break
the deadlock and the stalemate, but has left them without a functioning government for nearly 6 months. now, a police, a nigeria, hunting kidnappers, who've taken one of the country's most senior religious leaders hostage, samuel connor had the methodist church, and i cheerier, kidnapped, seized him and 2 other priest in the se state of ob, yeah. it's not yet clear who's behind the attack or their motive. fidelis ambar is in a boucher with more some will, connell i'm toward a priest that sunday afternoon on the way back from it. we just program, in se obvious, the police say the last in my home and their divorce will be reaching out to member of the public to volunteer information, to be able to rescue the web and adopting their family. members have also issued a statement more like making a question about lead. a lease will be to release them. but then no group are claim
responsibility window at the southeast as witnesses of not being seen recent times by people who reflect locally on the government. because most of the groups and they've been nothing people for ransom. and in some cases we've had the park where those kids not died in cost for the whites on my lead ransoms page. it be the big group of separately. it's wendy region who are competing for brickley with the recipe. and the government has come to some of cutting out some mail and keep nothing. but he said they're not behind any form of kidnapping. and that they've not been talking to places out the largest dom removal operation in us history will say, begin in california. it builds on a wide trend. almost 60 dams have been torn down in the past 2 decades as well.
brenda reports now from home, brick. it's latest deconstruction isn't just about the environment. ah, the klamath river leander is through steep mountain sand. lush forests. it's banks are home to ospreys, and great blue herons. and playful babies of otter's fishing guide. jack trout is worked here for 29 years. there is something about the klamath river . a that just makes me feel better about life in floating feeling, the waves. but in spite of the apparent abundance trout bleeds, the klamath is in crisis. there was something terribly wrong with the salmon ran. and i mean, the spine was just here and gone so fast. it wasn't natural. salmon were once incredibly abundant. here they were the cornerstone of the ecosystem and the main food source for indigenous people in the region. the, your rock,
the hoopa, and the carrack, those days are gone. this is the iron gate damn one of several built decades ago for hydro power. it blocks off the salmon from their sworn and grounds up stream. the fish have steadily declined ever since it was built on dams. when and we saw these huge population crashes and salmon and other species, these salmon fry are swimming in a hatchery just below the dam. but hatchery fish have failed to restore the salmon population. for the tribal people, the result has been disastrous without recourse to their traditional diet of salmon rates of diabetes and heart disease have sword. so it's really hard to emphasize just how important the seminar to us. i mean, for me, it's not just a food source, it's also the connection to my ancestors. now, after decades of negotiation and bureaucratic delay,
the iron gate dam is going to be torn down. the process will take several years and will be the largest dam removal in us history. when this dam and the others along the klamath river are finally removed, native americans and others who depend upon the river hope that it will once again flow free and clean and full of salmon, all the way to the sea. from here at the mouth of the klamath salmon travel up stream to spawn, after their mysterious journeys in the pacific ocean, where intertwined in every way, with the klamath river and without the klamath river. there, there are yacht people, a river to be restored for generations to come. rob reynolds al jazeera on the klamath river. an unusual story for you now a man in disguise. as land lies the wild life.
