5:05 pm
conclusions but he reiterated them later when speaking outside the white house you know you're going. we have to be very hard we've been very very tough. with that when i merely. british police described his comments as on helpful and tourism a was unimpressed i never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation as i've just said the police and security services are working just got the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible critics say trumps willingness to speak out about this attack and others when muslims are suspected to be involved is it all it's with his response to incidents such as the white supremacist rally in charlottesville last month where a woman was killed in a car attack when there are acts of terrorism that's where the perpetrators it is worldview. is almost in

a knee jerk. you know. reactor's date but when it is not the people that he usually leads to condemn then he will be much more deliberate about his statements. it's not clear which trumps tweets were based on intelligence speculation either way they irritated a close eye on a day that was difficult enough all the way to pictorial gate and b. al-jazeera. well the head of scotland yard has made an appeal to the public following the attack and listen i don't think people should get used to the idea that there will be constant attacks however we are trying to fight against a very considerable threat not only from overseas not only online but also of course as we're seeing coming from a very small number of people of a variety of persuasions in our own communities egypt's top appeals court has upheld the life sentence of the former president mohamed morsi the ruling is final

5:12 pm
tougher u.n. sanctions while working more closely with the u.s. but not everyone in japan is happy with closer ties to washington critics of shinzo abbay say that inconsistency is in the u.s. policy towards north korea have increased the risk of confrontation and japan's close alliance with the us might mean it being dragged into a conflict whether it likes it or not. given the potential consequences for japan many believe it's never been more important to be working closely with the u.s. as it weighs up potential military options rob mcbride al jazeera tokyo now security forces in the democratic republic of congo and killed at least eighteen burundian refugees in the eastern town of cum in your place and soldiers opened fire as the refugees protested over a resettlement plan witnesses say some of them threw rocks at security forces here
