5:03 pm
numerous firearms within the room that he occupied and like i stated earlier it's going to be a long and tedious investigation obviously this is a tragic incident and one that we have never experienced in this valley. investigators were quick to tell the public that rumors of multiple shooters at several locations were false this is now the deadliest mass shooting attack in u.s. history paul childer gian al jazeera. joins us live now from washington d.c. can play what more are we hearing from the white house in addition to their comments on twitter. well we do expect the president to react he had a previously scheduled media appearance in the next hour that has now been moved up by thirty minutes clearly the white house has according to the press secretary been monitoring this from the moments that the first shots rang out and that was we are
5:04 pm
told the police was or rather the president was informed of the shooting so that he could monitor it throughout the night if not only did he have the reaction on twitter where he sent his condolences and sympathies but we also had a statement from the acting homeland security secretary elaine duke where she said in fact that she has no information to indicate that this may have been a specific credible threat regarding public venues because of course this took place at a concert where thousands of people were in a public open space however she does say that the homeland security department is now monitoring other public spaces in and around the united states and in some of those areas there has been stepped up security again until this investigation can be completed and that is going to take some time given the scale and scope of the crime scene certainly it's going to be a while before the motive of the sixty four year old gunman stephen paddick remains clear now certainly we've also had updates from law enforcement that they are
5:05 pm
continuing to try and determine what caused this man to act we do know that the only reason that he stopped was when he turned the gun on himself when police officers breached his hotel room so a lot of unanswered questions a lot of rifles found in that hotel room and of course we are awaiting the president's reaction and also updates perhaps on what more is known by law enforcement officials given the fact there are now three levels of police investigating not just the local police but also state and federal investigators ok kimberly how can it live in washington kimberly thank you. callen his government is claiming victory in sunday's referendum and says ninety percent of those who voted back secession from spain but only forty two percent of catalonia is five point three million registered voters are believed to have turned out for the referendum so that's just under two million people many opposition groups in the region boycott of the vote because they believe the poll to be
5:06 pm
illegal in line with the spanish government that's estimated spanish police shut down about half of the polling stations preventing many people from being able to vote either way. and the entire world is seeing that on one side we have violence and shame and on the other democracy and dignity this is an easy election to have moreover this is an election that we asked for from the european institutions and from governments of other countries who want desire and call out for us to be able to build a more open democratic world. luckily we've been being coexistence is a good that we must begin to recover as soon as possible and i say very clearly i'm not going to close any door on if it did it's not my way of doing politics and i've always offered an honest sincere dialogue but always within the law and always within the democracy frame. john hendren has more from barcelona. spain considered it a crime but catalonian leaders consider the reverend here a triumph they were aiming for
5:07 pm
a spectacular show of force when it came to churn out what they got was about forty percent that's far less than spectacular but there were extraordinary circumstances leading up to this spain tried to shut down the election at did not happen although spanish police did certainly dampen turnout there were some brutal confrontations with demonstrators in which the demonstrators came out much for the worse as spanish police invaded polling stations took out the ballots which they considered illegal so that reduced the number who were turnout so extraordinary circumstances nevertheless president carlos told me whatever the the level of turnout was under spanish law it didn't matter he says that he will go forward with his efforts to declare independence if more and more people said yes in that vote and they certainly did by about ninety percent but here on the ground in spain the day after the referendum looks pretty much like the day before for this region or catalonia
5:08 pm
has a booming economy a booming tourism industry and a lot of people here say that is just the point with or without spain things here will remain pretty much the same. senior leaders have arrived in the gaza strip this part of efforts to mend ties with rival palestinian factions hamas the palestinian authority's prime minister rami huntelaar is leading the delegation that's its first visit to the script since two thousand and fifteen gaza has struggled with months of electricity shortages perry fossett is following this visit from gaza city. well if the want of the welcome is any indication of the signs for this deal finally sticking and having a workable reconsideration between fatah and hamas after all these years then the signs are relatively positive at this stage there has been a very warm welcome but both from hamas officials that the senior hamas a delegation that's been welcoming the fatah the palestinian authority delegation from ramallah and also from the hundreds of young people who gathered at the erez
5:09 pm
crossing the gaza side of it to welcome the delegation led by the palestinian prime minister. now it's time to stand together and to work the only beneficiary of a long division is the occupation in that context i would like to say the decision by hamas to respond to the new palestinian president mahmoud abbas by dissolving gaza's administrative committees is an important step upon which we will build we are confident that mutual understanding and positive will will fail we look forward to working with all political factions and now one of the things that one dollar committed himself to was specifically trying to fix the crisis among the youth here in gaza and it is a crisis sixty percent youth unemployment forty four percent unemployment more generally these are people who have really been left alone and really lost over the last ten years of palestinian split and israeli and egyptian blockade will this new
5:10 pm
fatah led administration the new p.a. administration be able to make good on some of its promises and actually improve the lives of those people of course one of the things it can do is remove some of the restrictions that it's imposed recently in order to bring hamas to heel to cause this moment where the unity government can be reestablished so it can it can restore some electricity supplies it can restore salary payments to the staff that remain here in gaza and will now have jobs to do once again but exactly how they come back into those jobs will they be threatening to displace the hamas be. well we've been doing those jobs in the intervening years who exactly will be in control of the hamas military wing the brigades in the future these are all obstacles which of scuppered such a tend to deals before some of these issues are likely to be pushed down the road a bit while the ministerial hand of his take place while easier things are resolved but they will have to be resolved at some stage in the future says have bombers have attacked

5:12 pm
time this police station has been targeted in a suicide attack in december of last year a nine year old girl wearing a suicide vest was able to get into that police station and detonate that device given the fact that we've now seen two major attacks on this very sensitive location in less than a year certainly will have many people in damascus certainly many people inside the government of syrian president bashar al assad questioning the sort of security that they have on the ground in this area and indeed around the capital but in the background of all of this we of course have seen some major and considerable gains by the syrian regime elsewhere in syria damascus has always been seen as a safe spot a safe location for the regime given just how much security they have on the ground but yet here we are a police station now in the grips of that second major suicide attack in less than twelve months. still ahead on al-jazeera and malaysia two women accused of
