Malema slams African governments for attending Jerusalem embassy opening

Saying that Hamas had incited people to lob flaming objects toward the Israeli side of the border fence and urged protest marchers to breach it, Haley asked: "Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?" Hospitals in the Gaza Strip have been overstretched by the more than 2,700 people injured along Israel's border fence, including 1,300 by gunfire, United Nations agencies said in Geneva.

Putin and Erdogan also discussed the Syrian settlement and Russian-Turkish cooperation in the energy sector.

Monday's protests in Gaza had coincided with Israel's 70th anniversary - an event Palestinians refer to as Nakba or the Catastrophe - and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The 2,700 people injured included 1,360 by live fire, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Julius Malema, one of South Africa's representatives at the Pan-African Parliament, has slammed African governments which attended the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. Its forces have killed 116 Palestinians since a campaign of protests on the Gaza-Israel border was launched on March 30.

PayPal gains bigger in-store presence with $2.2B acquisition

In response, Israel ordered the Turkish consul in Jerusalem, Husnu Gurcan Turkoglu, who is responsible for Turkey's relations with the Palestinians, to return home for consultations.

The Turkish president and Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exchanged furious tweets, and both countries have expelled each other's diplomats.

But in Europe, several European Union nations summoned Israeli ambassadors to express concern over what many view as excessive force by Israeli troops against unarmed Palestinian civilians. The Israeli military, which has come under global criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, said Hamas militants tried to carry out bombing and shooting attacks under the cover of the protests and released video of protesters ripping away parts of the barbed-wire border fence.

Monday's bloodshed took place as the United States opened its new embassy in contested Jerusalem.

Guatemalan lawmaker Marcos Fenando Yax said that most people in his country believed this was the right thing to do.

Trump tells North Korea that denuclearization will preserve its security
Trump said North Korean officials are discussing logistical details about the meeting with the U.S. "as if nothing happened ". Trump said he was not pursuing the " Libya model" in getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow on Wednesday that Israel's statement about dozens of "peaceful" protesters killed on the Gaza border by Israeli forces on Monday was an act of blasphemy. Hamas says the demonstrations are a popular outpouring of anger, and Israel carried out a "massacre" in response.

The Israeli military has come under heavy global criticism for firing on unarmed protesters, and faces accusations of using disproportionate force.

"We have no choice but to stop the North-South high-level talk scheduled for the 16th under the ugly circumstances where there is indiscreet North-invading war fuss and fight rampage", KCNA said. It was considered as the bloodiest day of cross-border firing since a 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.

"We are very disappointed at African countries which had celebrated the declaration of Jerusalem as the official capital city of Israel by the USA".
