investigation into the violence but the u.s. blocked a security council trafford solution condemning israel's use of force. to delaminate has more from the gaza israel border. grief anger and defiance as gazans mourn their dead it's a scene that has become all too familiar adding pain to what do un calls and unlivable situation among the bodies being carried for one last time through the streets of gaza the one of mohammed abu amr an artist who took part in the so-called great march of return his friends say his art would be forgotten in all more than thousand four hundred people were injured more than half of them shot by live ammunition some suffocated by tear gaius the highest casualty rate in a single day in gaza since the last war in two thousand and fourteen israel had prepared for days sending reinforcements to the border area the army had warned
gazans against approaching the border fence as a matter of national security now the military threatens that if the violence continues it will escalate its response and go deeper into gaza. bus drivers receive voice messages from these really army advising them against moving people to the border area or else as this voice says they and their families will be held responsible but gazans fed up and exhausted from life under siege vowed to continue protesting civil tents were erected along the border and thousands of people planned to camp there many of them refugees who are demanding their right to return to the homes their families were evicted from generations ago that the so he still carries dickey of his parents' house in there is about now an israeli town that i go to but i will keep it until we get back there and die there
if not me my children will have been waiting for nearly seventy years and still nobody cares about us i live under siege with not a single aspect of a decent life. about sixty eight percent of the population in gaza are refugees the protests will continue until may fifteenth the day of the creation of the state of israel palestinians refer to it as neck back or catastrophe everyone on both sides is aware that this standoff can spin out of control at any moment but up to. along israel's border with gaza a large fire in yemen has destroyed tons of much needed humanitarian supplies the fire burnt out warehouses in the rubble help. has more. yemeni firefighters did all they could to stop the flames. but more than fifty tons 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. had the farming controlled from the beginning it wouldn't have reached this extent by sunrise the fly was huge warehouse isn't getting in the fall is expanding integrating 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 not 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 and twelve thousand u.s. troops will join south korean soldiers for
the largest annual exercises between the two nations. kathy novak joins us live from seoul pardon me. so tell us more about about the scale of these exercises. well when these exercises come around every year north korea usually reacts very
angrily so they were initially delayed as you mentioned because of the winter olympics the fear was that it may inflame tensions with north korea while the winter olympics and paralympics were happening here in february and march but not only were they delayed it seems they've been shortened as well so the overall scale we're told will remain the same but instead of going on for two months they will only go on for a month and that seems to be in light of the more peaceful atmosphere that is prevailing here on the korean peninsula in the lead up to a summit meeting between the leaders of the two koreas and with plans for a meeting between kim jong un the leader of north korea and the u.s. president donald trump so i think the sense
of between the u.s. and south korea is that they must proceed as planned with these drills but perhaps try to keep them a bit more low key richelle so there is this cultural exchange there that is happening between the north and the south tell us more about that. well that's right that's just another example of the improving relations between the two koreas
so this is an art troupe that is visiting north korea from south korea the first time in more than a decade that this has happened that it's sort of a part of a developing series of cultural exchanges between north and south korea we saw in north korean performers coming to south korea around the winter olympics and now there are musicians they'll be a take quando demonstration interesting lee among the performers will be members of a popular k. pop group and at times of heightened tensions we saw k. pop being used as a propaganda tool of south korea blasted into north korea through speakers at the border trying to show north koreans what is basically happening in the outside world the sort of thing that is usually kept from north koreans well now we're seeing the north koreans welcoming these performers with open arms and there are planned plans for a joint performance on tuesday as well richelle. kathy novak live for us in seoul thank you the last remaining staff have left the u.s.
