bush the younger than i did him and i'm standing with people who are threatened by hate and violence when we are together we stand side by side nightgowns i against violence and language that degrades and excludes people. all too often paves the way for violent acts. in big. the night before and how now a 43 year old german national killed 9 people on a shooting rampage most of them of turkish and kurdish descent the suspect was later found dead in his home his mother also shot dead he was a member of a gun club and was not on authorities radar as a threat germany's attorney general has taken over the investigation he said the suspect wanted to send a provocative message oh. home page has more suspects with page contained a video message. the kind of manifesto not money fist.
you need full of confused thoughts and conspiracy theories almost healed me in all sorts profoundly racist mindset it should be seen on our flights and in berlin chancellor angela merkel condemned the violence. that's this was racism is a poison hate is a poison and this points in exists in our society and is responsible for far too many crimes few and far but i can mention we don't distinguish citizens according to their background or religion. we stand with all our strength and determination against all those who try to divide germany. last night and. berliners gathered at the brandenburg gate to show solidarity with the victims this is a kind of i'm here because i don't want murderers in my country. grief fear rage
everything you would feel on a day like this. dov i'm here because i think we have to show our faces to show that the majority of people in this country are different and. many questions remain one of the biggest is why right wing terror has been able to grow into such a phenomenon in recent years. and reporter kate brady has been following the developments in hot now she sent us this assessment of the mood among the city's residents. hundreds of candles and flowers have been laid here in just meters away from the scene of the 1st in the double shooting on wednesday evening the city today was one left in shock but also one with a sense of frustration for stray ssion that many members of the community here particularly those of turkish descent still feel like they're treated as outsiders but also a sense of anger that germany's 3rd fall right extremist terrorist attack was able
to happen here just 4 months after an anti-semitic attack in eastern germany now the city and the rest of germany alike a looking to politicians for. and as germany mourns the victims of the attack on 1st world leaders have been expressing best sympathies. for the gunman's rampage has reverberated far beyond germany many of his victims were of turkish descent president wretch of type offered a message of support. you know my honor. i express my condolences to our expired trades who lost their lives in the german city of hono last night. i wish patients for their families and friends. i believe that the german authorities will make every effort to shed light on all
angles of this attack. european leaders gathered in brussels for a budget summit also offered sympathy and denounced the attacks can see it all we say very clearly that xenophobia and racism have no place in europe and that this despicable and cowardly act is against everything we stand for and. i want to express france's support and solidarity and i wish to stand by their sides in this sad time of grief also in the fight against hatred and racism that is being strongly led by the chancellor and also by most of the german political establishment considered full support it's. a misuse of shit was a horrible right wing radical terrorist attack that took place in germany which must be condemned in the strongest possible terms and it also shows us that it is important that we continue to fight against all forms of radical thought in europe woods and kids. this comes as far right parties are surging in many european
countries while germany mourns the latest victims of extremist attacks. that's now take a look at some other stories making news around the world. irish prime minister live arrived has formally resigned but is staying on as caretaker leader the move came as island's parliament convened for the 1st time since an election 2 weeks ago that has left 3 parties wrangling to form a stable government. a boat carrying over 90 migrants has apparently gone missing in the mediterranean according to the un refugee agency the inflatable boat carrying mainly african migrants set out from alcar bully about 50 kilometers east of the libyan capital tripoli there's been no communication with any of the migrants since the boat set out. but livia's electoral tribunal has announced that all my president will morales is not eligible to run for the senate position in the

ever happens this is a mass concede ground and start caring about the people. only by doing this will be able to survive for another 40 years. you know just sort of the you want to take your tears you can use in an eggplant now cost 10000 on voting really make a difference. i don't expect anything nothing from the parliament and nothing from the president if they really represented the people they would have long since done something but all they do is talk names and. skepticism is a problem for the reformist candidates close to president rouhani their promise of increased prosperity by working with the west is one they haven't been able to keep many have been disqualified by the guardian council from even running and those who have been know that chances are. the mood in the opposing campaign office couldn't
be more different than hardliners like say at mohammed hussein he feels their time has come and they want to win back parliament in the country than to give. it time to end the cooperation with the west to stop trusting western countries. people are turning towards candidates who support the values of islam it revolution all year towards hardworking people who believe a region must share resistance his own house gave him the ball in matters. of. resistance to the west the islamic republic sounding noticed seems to be enjoying a comeback at the moment but analysts say that recent tensions with the us arch enemy 6 play a part 6. when you have so much pressure from abroad people tend to be more conservative. so you have what happened to a major general officially it was announced that he was assassinated sapir which tend to feel that this is
a major security issue for iran and right now we have to be tough to keep the integrity of the country. let's go to apathy is strong even in the traditional stronghold to run. them and i guess i would i'd rather cut off my arms and legs than go out and there are no real elections here in iran just appointments that guardian council in other words come and i makes all the decisions these candidates are stooges they won't achieve anything. victorious in this election with no voter participation could also be interpreted as a vote of no confidence. the berlin film festival is underway as the festival 17 yeah 18 films are competing for the events top prize a golden bear all reporters david leavitt's and helena humphrey went to see the opening film and the 70th berlin international film festival kicks off with the red

a lot more i'd say about female emancipation and i think that it will have pretty mainstream appeal it's a very sincere movie overdub it fantastical at times maybe a little too fantastical but of chance for my taste i would say a little bit too fantastical but nevertheless i think it's a movie which easily segues between hollywood and here at the international film festival. in football and the europa league round of 16 the 3 german teams taking part on thursday night played at home and gave their fans something to smile about and track frankfurt flew past salzburg frankfurt's daiichi kumud a letter to have tricked in the fall one victory by leverkusen defeated porto by 2 goals to one and it was also $21.00 as vosburgh. paris and german chairman nasser. has been charged by swiss prosecutors in connection with a corruption case i'll kill
