a year ago comes together again in a show of you to see. them come from al this is just there on live from doha also coming up. hurricane laura makes landfall along the u.s. gulf coast with warnings that it could cause unsurvivable damage. we need for more years of president john the truck u.s. vice president mike pence makes his case for why he and president trump should stay in the white house for another 4 years. and more national guard troops are deployed to can no show wisconsin to support police during another night of protests over the shooting of a black man. for the 1st time in new zealand's history
a judge has ordered the convicted person to spend the rest of their life in prison without the possibility of getting out the sentence was handed to brenton talent the self-confessed white supremacist who killed $51.00 muslim worshipers and knowledge of last year he was responsible for the country's worst mass shooting reports. after a harrowing emotional 4 days in the high court in christchurch justice cameron mander delivered brinton terence sentence on each of the $31.00 charges of murder charges while the $41.00. was sent to life in prison. or did you see the citizens who are all terror and showed little emotion even when being told he would spend the rest of his life in prison outside the court there was relief and gratitude that the convicted murderer and terrorist had been given a sentence never before handed down a new zealand but it was mixed with the realisation that the pain will go on. no punishment. will bring our loved ones back.
we respect our justice system and then using a muslim community. known most of them as well we're still to go there again is to the court was told terance actions after he entered the 2 mosques on march the 15th last year were premeditated and calculated he had studied the layout of the buildings and when they would be busy and in interviews with police expressed disappointment that he hadn't killed more worshippers because your opinion caught extreme arms. it was brutal and beyond. your actions in human. week the sentence brought an end to 4 days of statements by survivors and family members of those killed at least 90 statements were given some of them expressing anger some offering forgiveness all of them emotional the prime minister spoke soon after and expressed his support for them
and the sentence the trauma of much 15 is not easily healed but today i hope is the last. we we have any cause to hear or the name of the terrorist behind it has deserves to be a life time of complete and utter silence. the sentencing of brinton terrine closes a chapter in one of new zealand's darkest days and means no one has to relive the events in a parole hearing but for the relatives of the 51 people whose lives he took away and those he injured trying to recover will be a long difficult process wayne hey al jazeera. well paul buchanan is the director and principal at 36th parallel a political risk consultancy he joins us on skype now from old friend in new zealand thanks for your time paul from a legal standpoint this case and the sentence with firsts for new zealand on
several fronts is that right. yes it was i mean it noted the magnitude of the murder charges but the fact that this is the 1st time that a successful prosecution has been done under the terrorism act and the terrorism act if you remember came after $911.00 and was designed for java's but as it turns out the threat didn't come from the muslim community they were the targets and so he's been convicted of terrorism he's been convicted of $51.00 cancer murder 40 plus counts of grievous bodily harm or something to that effect and now he's been given a life sentence without parole which hasn't been used for over 100 years and i merely point out that the last time it was used it was used against mouthy independence activists in the late 19th century so this man is australian as of yet we've not had a mainstream new zealander convicted of any of these crimes but nevertheless it's
a significant step even for those who don't like the idea of no parole because of the heinous and the magnitude of this man's crimes. paula the deputy prime minister winston pieces is now calling for town to be extradited to a stray via i mean one of the towns as if that actually happening or is this just politicking ahead ofan election. well that's a good point because that that's exactly it it's an election year and 2 things have happened 2 legal things have happened that are not entirely salyut jory the 1st is yes the foreign minister and minister deputy prime minister he wants to do a little payback to the australians because the australians have been sending new zealand born criminals back to new zealand even though there's no bilateral extradition treaty or an ending of the sort that covers prisoner changes and so once that peter's is in election mole and he has decided that the best thing to do
is start you know that it will cost us too much to imprison him here news you know $1800000.00 a year apparently and so it'd be best to just send him back that resonate with you know some of his constituents bunch and there's no legal basis for it the prime minister i think very wisely said it's up to the victims whether they want to pressure to have them returned to australia but even the main opposition party thinks that's of ludicrous idea so this is an internal politics the other legal aspect of this is that the 2 main right wing parties in new zealand national party and the act party are now want to repeal the gun reform legislation that occurred in the wake of the march 15th massacres they want to do away with the ban on semiautomatic weapons high capacity magazines and the like so even those those very
quick reforms that were made are now under the gun if you will to pardon upon and won't get only hope that regardless of the outcome of the election those sentiments will not prevail ok thank you for your analysis paul the canon there director and principal at 36th parallel. well landis del valle is the mayor of christchurch and joins us now via skype. what's your response to the sentence. i think that it was well received i was relieved when i heard that that was the result i know many of us standing alongside our muslim communities who had been so tragically affected by the events of much for staying were late when they who the sentence was without parole it had to be life but to make it without parole means that nobody even hates to think about fronting up to
a parole board and and having to argue for that this man sections couldn't anyway lay to anything less than they now we're seeing so much coverage dignity over the past few days during the sentencing hearing how do you think the city has responded and also changed as a result of this. i believe that the community has changed and changed on march 15th and we saw it and the response from the whole community you know the tribute wall that developed over the days that followed which really did indicate an outpouring of grief and compassion and love and the in the one that really sticks in my mind was the call to prayer one week later standing and south park hopper search eleanor mosque. just thousands of crush its resistance to end
up quietly and silently to seen the strong message to the muslim community that we're here we've got your back and the seats of togetherness the spirit of togetherness what are i believe will see us through and that is what we must continue to demonstrate to all of our communities in their in their diversity as a city saying that this is a place where there is no no place for hate and our city and certainly i mean there's no doubt that this city is the country in fact it has really come together and show in this unity this love for the for the muslim community. i mean i worked in and process for many years and many people have questioned whether christ in particular has confronted issues of white supremacy of white racism both historically and present day what do you think do you do you think that has
happened. no i don't think we have and i think that you know i recall many years ago going on an anti racism match and you know it was very well attended i think. it really did start to open up people's eyes to the reality that there is this fear that there is that there are these individuals that have these views that are now able to be spread across and to need you know and i just think of facebook. 2004 and here we are just 16 years later that. individuals who have these views can can have them amplify through social media and a way that just simply wasn't possible you know 16 years ago and i think that has made a real difference and it does mean that people like the individual the terrorists
who attacked out to mosques and i can find comfort from others around the world who share these extremists it's these views that we must. strike out they don't represent the best of humanity and the best of who we are and i so i do think that as a city we do have to from top to. being rice's i'm an absolutely. small white supremacist movement here and crush number of years ago we need to confront we need to make sure that anyone who lives and born into such a way that they come here from another country where they come here from another part of new zealand. they are able to develop true scenes of belonging but i just want to pay tribute to the courage of every single one of those people
who stood up and court and made the statement. that not victims that they are courageous individuals who deserve our speech they wish so now 5 and i just my heart goes out to each and every one of them and i think them for what they have been prepared to do for our city and we will continue to work together to make sure that this is a city where everyone has seen its a belong and thanks so much for that is the mayor of christchurch new zealand and. hurricane nora has made landfall in the something united states with forecast is warning off on the survivable storm surges winds of more than 240 kilometers per hour have been recorded in southwest louisiana or near the border with texas tens of thousands of people are without power state governors are worried that some of
the hof 1000000 coastal residents on evacuation orders have chosen to stay. i'm asking people right now to pay attention to this storm to get out of harm's way if there is an evacuation order in place where there is mandatory or voluntary and i understand our state hasn't seen a storm surge like this in many many decades. well joining me now in the studio is there is meteorologist everson fox ever since so how strong is this storm now and what's the latest in terms of how it's tracking well it made landfall as a category 4 hurricane laura a very strong one as well top end winds around 240 kilometers per hour and significantly higher gusts gusting this as of 300 kilometers per hour so it is something of a monster of a storm and we're looking at tornadoes as well several tornadoes have been reported across parts of louisiana but i'll show you on the satellite picture what we were
up against here is a well organized system there you can clearly see the eye of the storm makes its way further north was pushes up towards that southwestern corner of louisiana where we have seen some very a very violent weather pushing through storm surge may reach 50 kilometers inland so that gives an indication of the push on this system as it makes its way into that western side of louisiana as we go on through the coming as eastern parts of texas in the mix as well as you say in there came we're talking in terms of the potential for unsurvivable storm surge reason for that is the winds coming in you can see the the dirty side of the storm the strongest winds from the right hand side of the system moves in a clockwise direction and it's moving in a general northerly direction as a system as a whole as we go through the remainder of thursday it runs right up that western side of louisiana pushing into arkansas as we go into friday by this stage those winds will weaken off it'll become a tropical depression not
a not concerned about the winds as such then it's going to push all the way up towards kentucky towards sets the eastern seaboard as we go on through the course of saturday pushing out into the open waters on sunday and those waters remain warm enough for him and it may well develop back into a tropical storm ok we will be keen eye on that here on al-jazeera thank you for that everson. still to come here on al-jazeera. troubling signs for the president of bellows from his traditional support that's. a players from one of america's most popular sports express their views on racial injustice in the country it will. be. hello storm frances is moved quite
a big one now opening up so not quite as powerful as it was but it's very obviously a storm that really belongs the middle of winter not the end of summer however that's what we've got it's moving through the sudden baltic into the baltic states and better as ukraine leaving behind a bit of a gap for next one tries to wind up as nothing not the same beast still wet and windy there considering we're still in august and i think it expands there although much of central and southern europe is enjoying now warm settled sunshine and the showers that were around the igi and the adriatic of god. we are going to see this expand there for sink south was which means you've now got the potential for big storms all the way from the northeast to spade across the french riviera and into the out still the sunshine is the south because this leaves enjoying it but the north africa is as well the temp is quite high in the middle of algeria morocco and tunisia not quite the extremes we had a week ago but there will say. about $31.00 now that we have got the band of
