10:05 am
any use of such weapons would be a callous escalation is conflicts. and we were whole putin and his regime to account or in his nightly tv address. ukrainian president followed miss lansky warned russia could resort to using chemical agents. he referred to comments for him, rushing back east and forces in don. yes, co call for such weapons to be deployed. she would use as bulky, equal, blank to day. we heard a new threat about a new stage of terror against our defenders. one spokesman of the enemy made a statement today that they could use chemical weapons against the murder your paul defenders. we took it extremely seriously. i want to remind all the leaders of the world, but the possible use of chemical weapons was already discussed. and at the time it meant that it was necessary to end the russian aggression in a tougher and faster way. now the 6th sanction package is being discussed. we need to make it so powerful that even the phrase chemical weapons is not used by
10:06 am
russians. national isn't it? has parliament has passed a landmark bell to tackle sexual violence. dan, when dad, you know, when you're a new law will provide a comprehensive legal framework for cases of sexual abuse until now the issue had been regarded as a private matter. victims will be able to receive compensation and psychological support. last year alone, indonesia. so nearly 340000 cases of violence against women as gay, tall correspondent, jessica washington. his life was now in jakarta. jessica, tell us a bit more about this bill and how it will help victims of sexual audits. well, you mentioned some of those figures from last year. and as shocking as they might seem, indonesian ministers have really described those numbers. it's just the tip of the iceberg. because indonesia, like many countries around the world does have a problem with under reporting. when it comes to sexual violence and part of the
10:07 am
reason for that is that in the past avenues, the justice or survive is of sexual assault have been limited. and there are hopes to day that going forward with the passing of this bill that can change with now clearer avenues for survivors of sexual abuse to build a case and to secure convictions against perpetrators. now 2 of the key features of this landmark legislation include firstly that it takes what women's rights groups and survive as rights groups have called a victim centered approach. this legislation is not just about convictions for perpetrators of sexual abuse, but after an abuse happens, what happens to the victim? specifically, there is a victim of funds for compensation, which would ensure that a victim is able to secure compensation regardless of the financial status of the perpetrator of the assault. secondly, there are also all the avenues with ease and psychological support. but the other
10:08 am
interesting factor about this legislation is that it outlined some of the nuances, the different kinds of sexual abuse, including online sexual abuse, non physical, actual harassment, forced marriage among other all the ways that a person can be abused, going forward, women's rights groups and survive rights groups are hopeful that it will empower more survivors to come forward and to seek justice. it's interesting, you mentioned those crimes because my understanding is that this bill doesn't go far enough in terms of the types of sexual crimes that covers. it only include some sex crimes and also the emission of a specific clause of rape which was quite important. can you tell us a bit more about that? sure, i'm having a bit of trouble hearing you to be able to repeat the question. but there has been some criticism that the, that the bill doesn't actually go so far enough in terms of the number of sexual
10:09 am
crimes included dell, that is right. but it is important to look at the wider context here. this piece of legislation has taken more than 6 youth to pass and that is because of some of the difficulties in terms of different perspectives here in indonesia. now the reason for the delay is because mostly because of conservative groups, conservative parties, religious groups, who said that the mere distortion of issues such as sexual consent would encourage adultery and extra marital sexual relations. now they were able to make those claims, of course, without any evidence, but they were able to successfully help delay the process. so as a result, this legislation is by no means perfect, but today human rights groups and those who have really pushed for this legislation to be pos, happy with what they have been able to achieve despite some of the difficult circumstances. which meant that some factors that some of the nuances of sexual
10:10 am
abuse that they would have liked to be detailed in this legislation would not able to be included. thank you for that. jessica washington, that for in jakarta now is rarely forces have withdrawn from janine and the occupied westbank off to detaining more palestinians. 17 people have so far been held in israeli, raised in the occupied territory as well launched the operations officer. palestinian gunman shot and killed 3 israelis and televi late last week. at least for palestinians have died in the raids that followed separately. israeli forces fatally wounded a palestinian worker in asked long during a security check. let's go to nita abraham, who joins us from outside. a refugee camp in jeanine. it need has been a tumultuous couple of days, will meet that this morning. this morning. these really forces have rated 2 neighborhoods in janine,

10:13 am
everyone has permits. according to these radio forties, they say that this man who is yet to be ideal, we don't know who he is so far. but they say that he didn't have a permit to work in his room. that's not something new. tens of thousands of palestinians enter to work in his way without further. but what we know from the palestinian witnesses, they say that the man bids in for the threat that these really police has said that he attempted to, or he's even stabbed a policeman. and that he was likely injured, but the palestinians are saying that he didn't pose any threat. and these really police was acting in a way that was very violent. and then they shot the man and killed him. yes, to be id. so this gives you an idea about the tension here and how can the situation is in the area. thank you for that. neither emperor him outside that
