9:04 pm
control and that everyone's been evacuated but the gunman is still at large there could be a hostage situation going on we're not quite sure because the gunman has not been detained yet by by police there are reports that they're bringing in his mother actually to try to negotiate with him to try to reason with him and get him to surrender again whether he is hostages or not not clear but it is clear that he is still holed up in this mall all right i'm with just been seeing some live pictures as well of a cordoned off area outside that shopping center have authorities said anything else about the attack and yeah he's been quite well publicized he's been called a 32 year old army sergeant a thai army sergeant in fact that's where he's got his guns reportedly that he stole them from the army base he was on starting in a village actually outside the city apparently shooting his commanding officer and then going to a buddhist temple and then going to the mall where this is escalated to. as far as motive they are mentioning something about a land dispute a post he made worse screeds about corruption in the country but it's very unclear
9:05 pm
what exactly is motive as that's going to have to be away yeah you just touched on the fact that he had been posting in fact on facebook what can you tell us about some of that he was apparently live streaming the shooting which is something we've seen as a feature in these kinds of terrible of bands but facebook seem to be pretty quick in shutting down his account shutting down the stream and facebook actually perhaps a statement expressing their condolences to the families and those affected and he was posting throughout at least up until a few hours ago posting live while he was holed up in this mall in fact at one point apparently complaining about that his trigger finger was hurting him so certainly not someone who is showing much remorse but police in thailand have used social media to get the word of who this person is and to try to gather more information ok and another disturbing development which we have seen in other previous attacks where you know if you crossed thanks a lot for your update. well here in germany the state from yet elected with votes

on the government for now. this is a thorn in the history of our democracy and one we will still feel for a long time to come but it can be healed and that's what we're working to do now. the government is now calling for new elections to be held in the renter without delay but after the events of this week the search for a new state premier looks to be easier said than done so on and now when people across the country all going to the polls to vote for a new parliament in the country's general elections growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo is leading many voters to reconsider voting for either of the 2 main established sinn fein a posse with historical links to the ira it is fine and struggle for a united ireland is looking to capitalize. sunrise in dublin and an early chance to have a say for these voters and what hints at being
9:09 pm
a generation defining election with more female candidates on the ballot than ever before and in a lecture increasingly dissatisfied with the status quo big change could be on its way you know island. chain paid to. you know. change is good changes to be seen. just. voters want to see a shake up with sion fame a party with strong historical links to the ira succeeding in appealing to risky voters people have told the straight this campaign that they want change and they want to change your representation and they want to change in government so i'm saying to people please come by today and vote for that change the polls suggest a surge in voting for the left leaning party with some even hinting at a narrow lead for irish prime minister leo varadkar faces a huge test to remain in power after his party phoenix came 3rd in recent opinion
9:10 pm
polls victory for shin fein would bring to an end the political drop paly which is ruled since 1937 with either 3 that go off in a foil in power since the republic formation is still remains are likely however with shin fein competing for considerably fewer seats than the big 2 parties both feet ago and feel of foil have ruled out working alongside sinn fein as part of a coalition but with an existing parliament already built on compromise some allowances may have to be made. i'm joined now in the studio by our reporter when. good to see you now shane fein has been polling strongly despite historical links to the ira why will people vote for one thing has been very successful in recent years distancing itself from. it played an active role in the peace process in northern. and the ira no longer exists as a paramilitary organization voters under the age of $35.00 have very limited memory
9:11 pm
of the violence that was associated with the group then there was also the financial crisis that came in 2008 and to reposition itself into a sterile parsi instead of the political wing of the ira. we have to also mention mary mcdonald she's the current leader of the party and she doesn't carry the political baggage of her predecessor gerry adams who had very clear links to the iraqi and she took over as party leader 2 years ago she's very very popular and she's been able to deliver a very clear message of change that seems to have resonated with voters during this campaign i'm talking about the current prime minister of india veronica one thing i will say is that he did manage to successfully defend irish interests in light of the braggs it to debate why isn't he being rewarded for that well for a career on his part of the fin a gale they may have gone into this this election hoping for braggs of they

9:13 pm
a government that's most likely to be phina for oil and the question then will be will they be able to form a government that looks like it's going to be very tricky. could play a role there as part of a coalition government and have already ruled that out it's also not clear if that will be in shin feigns interest so it's likely that they'll probably go into opposition and i will be the 1st time that aren't has a very strong left wing opposition or i d w reporter owen skits thank you so much. hopeful now and in the bundesliga full of joy instead of blame and on deep in relegation a child and coach slowly and cool fed it is clinging to his job but they were bored by victory over policy of dortmund in the german cup in the mid week and we're looking for a repeat performance as bellina came to town. concerned faces and braman and no wonder their team has been in freefall this season all 3 points
