last year it was by far the country's worst mass shooting when he reports to us after a harrowing emotional 4 days in the high court in christchurch just as cameramen delivered brinton terence sentence on each of the $31.00 shocking murder charges while he. was fit to live in prison. oh you serious 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 muslim community.
known most of them as well we're still to go there again is to the court was told terrence 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 his europe in cause she extreme arms it was brutal and beyond. directions 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 acid the name of the terrorist behind it has deserves to be a life time of complete and utter silence. the sentencing of brinton tyrant 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 earlier we spoke to earlier and the mayor of christchurch and she had a message of healing and unity for the people of her safety. i was relieved when i heard that there was the result i know they many of us standing alongside our muslim communities m who had been so tragically affected by the events of march 5th day were late when they hit they seem to was without parole it had to be life
but to make it without parole means that nobody ever has to think about fronting up to a parole board and and having to argue for that the man sections couldn't anyway lay to anything less than the age i believe that the community has changed and changed on march 4th jane 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 end of the one that really sticks in my mind was the call to prayer one week later standing and south hadley park opposite now in the war most we're just thousands of crushed resistance to quietly and silently to seen the strong message to the muslim
community that we're here we've got your back and their sense of togetherness the spirit of togetherness that has brought our i believe will will see us through and that is what we must continue to demonstrate to all of our communities in the air and their diversity as a city sang that this is a place that there is no no place for height analysis 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 victims that courageous individuals who deserve our respect they were. 5 and i just my heart goes out to each and every one of them and i thank 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
a long and. hurricane or has made landfall in the southern united states with forecast is one of unsurvivable storm surges winds of more than 240 kilometers per hour have been recorded in southwest louisiana now the border with texas tens of thousands of people without power state governors a warrior that some of the hof 1000000 coastal residents under evacuation orders have chosen to stay. by my asking people right now to pay attention to this storm to get out of harm's way if there isn't a back you ation order in place whether it's mandatory or voluntary and i understand our state hasn't seen a storm surge like this in many many decades. i'm joined in the studio now by al-jazeera is meteorologist everson fox ever seen i mean and uncivilized of all storm surge is how it's being described do you ever heard of something being described that way now that's
a new one to make and this is obviously an absolutely massive storm a monster storm you know this is this is off the scale is actually the the the most powerful storm to hit the louisiana coast in more than 100 years so that gives you an idea of what we're up against and of course a lot of low lying land here so as the surge of water comes in that's going to cause problems you can see on the satellite picture you get some idea of the actual vast size of the storm there swirling away making its way just through out just across the southern coast of louisiana now pushing inland the back end of the storm has actually made its way inland is a little further north than we're showing here we could see as much as 300 millimeters of rain possibly 450 millimeters of rain again back could well be record breaking rainfall as we go through the next couple of days and there's that storm surge that we're talking about there can we're looking at possibly pushing as much as 60 kilometers inland so that will inevitably cause widespread flooding
we're looking at river flooding we're looking at flash flooding and flooding the full should bank that makes its way further north which as we go on through the course of friday pushing up across arkansas weakening further and then as we go on towards the weekend we will see the system just making its way across the upper mississippi valley pushing across through the tennessee valley easing up towards that eastern side of the u.s. another area showers say tuck their way back in behind that will of course add to the flooding problems more showers this week go on into sunday for those southern parts adding to the problems and we'll see wetter weather also pushing up towards tennessee in. the u.s. vice president mike pence. has used the 3rd night of the republican national convention to praise donald trump's record on the economy and the war in order he criticized the democratic presidential candidate joe biden for attacking america

of it. singapore is being accused of expanding its coast guard with illegally dredged satins some of the islands off the coast of indonesia literally valid it's a big business smuggling spear when they go take to sit there in the sand is there to save this beautiful beach but behind it is something that's not so profound tragedy is that people are just not aware and ecological investigation into a global emergency soundboards at this time on al jazeera. i am steve clements i have a question to ask these days it's hard to filter out the noise in keep track of what's really important to the bottom line tackles the big issues this is shaping the united states its people its economy and the way it deals with the rest of the world the bottom line only on al-jazeera.
oh. i'm can but al of you are watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour parker nora has made landfall in the southern united states with forecasters warning of unsurvivable storm surges we see out there and texas state governors award about coastal residents who've chosen to stay despite mandatory evacuation orders. the man responsible for new zealand's worst mass shooting has been given a life sentence without parole self-confessed white supremacist brandon tarrant killed 51 was on watch this in march of last year. well holly karen is a reporter with news hope she joins us now live from christchurch holly just give us a sense of the feeling inside court and outside of court today. well
inside course it was incredibly emotional as justice mandel was handing down his seem to he took a moment to read the names of every single vote and it was so emotional and cool that the court had to bring in extra boxes of tissues and outside court was just beautiful to say crowds and crowds of people gathered in the freezing cold waiting for hours for the survivors when they emerged from court just once again to show them that we are one i was interested to see the new zealand media collectively agreed to limit or censor reporting of the trial in a bid to limit the broadcasting of tyrants ideology i mean in my experience even in new zealand never seen anything like it is that reflective do you think of where the country is at trying to tackle this this ideology.
i think you're right kim it was something that we had never experienced before and this was new zealand 1st in terms of what we were dealing with but really what they did was they sit embargoes twice a day once at 1 o'clock and one at 5 o'clock for when they could release the information it wasn't since it actually throughout the court case but it was just the air to make sure that we understood the the dignity of the court procedure because we really didn't know what we were going into and with the defendant would behave in self or not and what we would see half an inside court so that's why they put that process in place and we were lucky in the end that we were able to report everything that did happen inside it just came out at those 2 different times
throughout the day i was interested also to see this describe this attack described as the end of innocence for new zealand kiwis sort of used to thinking oh this is this is something that only happened. you know in other parts of the world what's your take. absolutely i think potentially naively way like to think or above that sort of thing that doesn't happen in new zealand but i think it's been an opportunity for every single new zealand to take a good hard look at themselves what is it that we stand for and i think what happened was that we all got united saying we stand against terrorism and that we really needed to to move forward and embrace the different cultures with the new zealand that make up the country that that is new zealand. ok i think that holy karen there reporter with news have
