3:02 pm
in christchurch new zealand which left forty nine people dead and forty eight injured have now been officially classed as acts of terrorism is a recap of what occurred. just trying to cover the bad calls themselves. one by one. and some people back to work believe me i mean the. people some of them would be screaming bloody. murder oh my god.
3:03 pm
this is from u.c.l.a. and darkest days. the first reports of the shooting came at one forty pm local time in the north mosque minutes later another mosque just five kilometers away was reported to also be under fire a video of the aftermath of one of those attacks has appeared on social media must warn you you may find this footage coming up now disturbing was. was. was. before people were initially arrested in connection with the attack one of them a male in his late twenty's has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow two others remain in custody authorities later said that the fourth person held was likely not related to the attack. has details. so far police have made four arrests but almost nothing is being disclosed about these four
3:04 pm
people we didn't hear any names from them the only thing that we know so far is that one man in his late twenty's has been charged with murder and will appear in court on saturday now two other suspects are definitely being held in connection with this shooting and i'll tell you what the police haven't even explained what the number of the shooters was and if everything danger has been caught so far still quite a few questions have been left unanswered at this point we are not really looking for any identified because we never of their own other people involved that's why we've got a. prison cell. across canterbury and right across new zealand we don't have nine or identified people that we're looking for but it would be wrong
3:05 pm
to assume that there is no want to. something else we learned from police boss mike bush and it's actually very astonishing that the agencies and the relevant authorities both from their preparations before hand so as you said earlier police aren't identifying the suspect yet but media are already naming a name through an alleged live stream then there was this life stream and we cannot confirm that but it looks like the attacker was live streaming everything he was doing on facebook and everything is absolutely disturbing about this shooting spree but the lifestream it's just surreal if you look at it you don't believe it's something that can happen in real life it's like a video game the authorities asked the media and the public not to show it not to share it but obviously in the first few hours after the shooting it was all over social media we're just going to show you
3:06 pm
a few screen shots from it again if you look at it just. you cannot watch it without crying or anything without getting shocked it appears like the camera was attached to a man's face or somewhere below so you can actually see the gun and the people falling from all the gun shots it looks like the man was shot to kill as many people as possible running around the rooms of the mosque people were trying to escape but they couldn't quite a few ugly things could have been found in the posts we could actually make a conclusion that the supposed terrorist was preparing for this for two years and one post there were actually photos of gun parts with names of christians who fought muslims in wars centuries ago the names were written on these parts so he was clearly going after muslim believers and a few hours before the shooting happened a manifesto by the supposed terrorists allegedly appeared online and this long
3:07 pm
manifesto law and the motives were racist they were anti immigrant sentiment was clearly there and it was also because of revenge for earlier terrorist attacks in europe now a little earlier the prime minister of new zealand spoke and in a quite emotional way she tried to elaborate why she believes her country became the target for these extremists we new zealand. we were not a target because we are a safe. height. we were not chosen for the sake of violence because we can darn racism because we are an enclave for extremism. we would chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things and any case we are waiting for more updates from the thora these from the police but new zealand will never be the same new
3:08 pm
zealand before this killing spree and after are to be different. as you mentioned earlier the alleged shooter posted a seventy four page racist manifesto encouraging attacks on nonwhites that he claims the been planning the attack for years the the us was his first choice he also identified himself as being a fascists the shooter also slide streamed the attack on facebook and twitter for around twenty minutes to social media giants are now under scrutiny for their failure to highlight the extremist material soon facebook twitter you tube and other providers have taken action to remove the video and other propaganda related to the attack the government has been clear that all companies need to act more quickly to remove terrorist content there should be no safe spaces for terrorists to promote and share their extreme views and breaded lies others the issue is not whether or not there's technology available to police social media the
3:09 pm
bigger issue is are we as a global community ready and ready to allow social media to be policed that's really the big question about here it needs to be a public private partnership government and social media corporations absolutely need to collaborate on cyber crime such as this we know factually speaking their terrorism regardless of its vaine terrorism uses social media to recruit to plan attacks we know this to be true in that be the case one of those elements can operate without the other the private sector of corporations social media companies and government need to work together to provide a safer global community more details and live updates on this incident had told website r.t. dot com. washington
3:10 pm
is certain to revoke or deny visas to members of the international criminal court if they attempt to investigate or prosecutor alleged war crimes committed by u.s. forces in afghanistan since two thousand and three. we are determined to protect the american and allied military and civilian personnel from living in fear of unjust prosecution for actions taken to defend our great nation these visa restrictions will not be the end of our efforts we are prepared to take additional steps including economic sanctions if the i.c.c. does not change its course the international criminal court has been investigating the crimes of the taliban in afghanistan and they published a report in twenty sixteen now the report described many atrocities committed by the taliban and the afghan forces in the country however a section of the report they published in two thousand and sixteen did refer to war crimes by u.s. forces it referred to torture cruel treatment outrages upon the personal dignity
3:11 pm
and rape and essentially according to the report the i.c.c. published in two thousand and sixteen they said that these crimes had taken place in detention programs in the early years of the us the us military presence in afghanistan is reasonable basis to believe these alleged crimes were committed in furtherance of a policy old policies aimed to eliciting information through the use of interrogation techniques involving cruel violent methods which would support u.s. objectives in the conflict in afghanistan now the united states has never been a member of the international criminal court however in the year two thousand bill clinton did sign the declaration of the statue of rome that essentially created the i.c.c. however the united states never fully joined the i.c.c. now national security adviser john bolton at one point threatened sanctions against the i.c.c. if they continued probing into american war crimes and activities in afghanistan we will not cooperate with the i.c.c. we will provide no assistance to the i.c.c.
3:12 pm
and lee certainly will not join the i.c.c. we will let the i.c.c. die on its own after all for all intents and purposes the i.c.c. . she is already dead thuggish attempt to penalize investigators resuming attacks against the court sends a dangerous signal that the united states is host to human rights and the rule of law so at this point there's a clear disagreement the international criminal court seems to be pursuing the end investigating the activities of u.s. forces in afghanistan and u.s. leaders are not happy about it. former pentagon security analyst michael maloof believes that the u.s. never cooperates with any agreements that could limited sanctions. but to keep in mind too john bolton doesn't like any international agreements now he's made this very very clear. and from the i.n.f. treaty with what russia has also canceled the president on barnabas the person
3:13 pm
agreement there is anything that limits u.s. capabilities in any way shape or form john bolton. seem to be opposed to it george bush and. dick cheney and others who were involved in the iraq war of two thousand and three were basically. accused and and held a full knowledge war crimes in the fact that the united states was not a signatory to the i.c.c. it. refused to cooperate whatsoever and in a perfect world it would seem that based on the old nuremberg tribunals and what have you been following world war two that you would need a court that would take action of the country itself failed to do so and that seems to be. backpedalling correction now. students from over one hundred countries have taken to the streets for climate

3:16 pm
in the forward and trying to do. is in fact at least for european states seeking information from pinto to aid their investigations into different cases related to football but they might not get that information because this week been to last the legal battle against extradition from hungary to portugal that is despite being represented in court by julian assange just form a lawyer a few. risks it in light of the european community and more about the very sophisticated structured character of the criminality which corrodes the football world. pintos league. team argues that if he returns to portugal its authorities will destroy all the data he possesses on top of that pinto fears for his life back home after a reported death threats to his family some believe that many in portugal the country that sees football as religion would want to extract their revenge on the whistleblower why because not only did he take

being certain of that and there are between seventy or eighty german young women children men who are currently being held prisoner in syria from a legal point of view i think the german government has an obligation to bring these children back for two reasons one is that they are german citizens and the other states is partly responsible for letting so many young people go to syria. an exchange of fire has escalated tensions between israel and palestinian islam missin the gaza strip and israeli warplanes bombed around one hundred amassed linked targets in response to two rocket center to tell of if it was the first such attack on central israel since the two thousand and fourteen war. there were no casualties on the israeli side while four palestinians were wounded a mouse has denied that it was behind the rocket attacks and media reports claim
