7:04 pm
more than ten minutes it stopped when police breached the hotel room door the gunman then turned his weapon on himself at least ten rifles were found in paddocks room. emergency responders expect a number of casualties to continue to climb much of the mandalay bay hotel is now being locked down as police continue to investigate what motivated the gunman to act and what's now being labeled the deadliest mass shooting in modern u.s. history. on a date a press conference has been held in las vegas in the last ten minutes or so just some of the key lines coming out from the press conference we now know that at least fifty eight people have been hurt a more than five hundred others were injured country music festival in las vegas the information that the f.b.i. and the police were able to give us was that there was no known connection between
7:05 pm
the gunman and any international terrorist organization so they were stressing at the moment there has been no known connection between the gunman stephen park and any international organization related to terrorism. just looking down at the latest lines coming in the appeal for blood has been issued again more. people in las vegas to come forward to help some of the people out in those hospitals in las vegas. now at least eleven people have been killed in a series of suicide bombings at a police station in the syrian capital damascus the syrian observatory for human rights as a car bomb went off near the station then two suicide bombers also blew themselves up next offices and civilians are among the dead nobody has claimed responsibility
7:06 pm
for the attack in his time is monitoring that story from beirut in neighboring lebanon. well this is a very significant attack in damascus in the area which is in the south of the city a car laden with explosives went off causing considerable damage and we understand . number of casualties but shortly after that bombers also strapped with explosives detonated their devices causing even more destruction and devastation syrian government has. i'm out to say that they will continue to fight what they describe as terrorism but this attack on this police station really begs a lot of questions about the state of security inside damascus this isn't the first time this police station has been targeted in a suicide attack in december of last year a nine year old girl wearing the suicide vest was able to get into that police station and detonate that device given the fact that we've now seen two major
7:07 pm
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 that 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 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 its second major suicide attack in less than twelve months afghanistan's defense ministry says an accidental as strike but one of its bonuses kills at least ten of its soldiers the strike hit a checkpoint run by the afghan force in southern helmand province the victims of from the afghan police and intelligence agency

7:09 pm
shut shops and disrupted social media but that didn't stop the english speaking movement they use facebook life twitter and whatsapp to spread the news and the last shot. due to it i think the level of damage. is too good to keep people shop do it trust. independence activists say five of the dead were prisoners escaping a jail that caught fire cameron's president paul bia responded with a statement on facebook saying i strongly condemn all acts of violence regardless of their sources and their perpetrators let me make this very clear it is not forbidden to voice any concerns in the republic however nothing great can be achieved by using verbal excesses street violence and a final authority. gunshots were heard throughout the night heavily armed military personnel patrolled english speaking areas on monday and shot tear gas at residents
7:10 pm
on the street. you fired tear gas canisters. so i had to scramble for safety just to show you how tense and how. the situation is the roots of this crisis began after the first world war when cameron was divided between the french and the british and its independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty one english speakers from british areas joined french cameroon instead of neighboring nigeria they complain the french have always stifled their language and culture french speakers disagree and supported a unified cameron on sunday and some english speakers agree with them the separatists wanted a crisis to. try to. change the constitution. for a vote power has been cast in southern areas of cameroon and when phones die so are

7:12 pm
fifty eight people and more than five fifty people killed among the five hundred others injured that country music festival in las vegas let's cross to las vegas and speak live to n.b.c.'s jay gray jay bring us up to date with the latest on the investigation because i know there has been a press conference there in the last half hour. yeah but we'll see if this drug moves out the way you can see behind me where they have the strip locked down at this point a police presence everything going on behind that that's where this a riff attack took place we now know that police are inside the misstate nevada home of the suspect in this shooting stephen paddock we know that they found other weapons there ten weapons were recovered inside the hotel room where this took place apparently the mandalay bay it was the thirty second floor looking down on the area where this concert was going on and that's apparently where he carried out the attack we do know that as police made their way into that room forced their way
7:13 pm
in with explosives he apparently took his own life we're also being told that they've seized two vehicles in this investigation and they're trying to glean any evidence they can in all of these locations about how and why all of this happened but officers are quick to point out this is an investigation that's going to be long it's going to be difficult and they may not have those answers for quite some time for the city and on the ground itself of course the police the emergency responders trying to deal with so many victims and trying to identify those who actually died in this shooting. yeah it's horrible and what police have said within the last fifteen minutes or so is that this scene behind us here that the crime scene is going to stay that way for some time they've got to deal not only with the investigation any potential evidence that may be on the ground here but but. and it's a grim situation but they've got to deal with the removing the bodies of victims
7:14 pm
here and a dinner flying them and notifying next of kin that horrible process is going to take some time as well and it's very difficult for a lot of people who have seen a lot of bad things in their time in service never anything quite like this most deadly mass shooting in u.s. history president bush spoke about an hour ago to the american people sending his condolences and best wishes obviously to those in las vegas no mention in his address the american people of the word terrorist or indeed guns but the issue of gun control is going to be debated yet again isn't it. yet we'll listen i think and not to correct you i think you meant president trump who made that statement not too long ago you're absolutely right and i think that we'll see that debate again resurface but i painfully remind you it was
7:15 pm
a debate after forty nine people were killed in orlando thirty six at virginia tech more than twenty five elementary school students in newtown so while the debate has raged at times there's been very little substantive change will this be the event that changes that a lot of people hope that's the case we won't know obviously until all of this moves through but that not the primary focus at this point it's the investigation it's the families that are grieving here and it's this city which has been really rocked to its core horrendous a horrendous incident j. craig joining us live there from us vegas with the latest on that investigation appreciate it john thanks so much. or i still has on this program two women pleaded not guilty as they go on trying to malaysia the app organizer of kim jong un's home brother. on three u.s. scientists we talked about on this the research that's giving us a deep insight into pilot. with.

7:18 pm
international city they're very interested and that global perspective that al-jazeera provides. and again undermines at the top stories here on al-jazeera a gunman in las vegas has killed at least fifty eight people and injured more than five hundred others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern u.s. history. u.s. president donald trump has called the attack on acts of pure evil and says he will visit las vegas on wednesday. let's stay with that story and take you live to our white house correspondent kelly how chris can really give us some idea of the reaction there in washington d.c. to this atrocity in los vegas. well certainly there is the presidential reaction as
7:19 pm
you point out the president calling this an act of pure evil saying he will in fact be meeting with the victims' families as well as first responders also ordering that the flags in the united states be at half staff trying to unite the country really as it is overwhelmed by the grief that many americans woke up to sort of a traditional role of the president to try and do just that but it isn't just the president who is trying to comfort americans right now in the victims' families but also members of congress the top republican in the house of representatives paul ryan the house speaker saying this is an evil tragedy that horrifies us all and we are united in our morning in our shock the top democrat nancy pelosi saying that despite this tragedy americans will never allow fear and violence to break our spirits now in terms of the motive as we heard jay gray there reporting just a few moments ago the f.b.i.
7:20 pm
as well as local and state officials all investigating which is a massive crime scene at the moment but certainly there has been a statement coming not just but from the f.b.i. but also from the department of homeland security repeating again that right now there is no link to international terrorism and in fact when it comes to a credible threat regarding public venues well security has been stepped up around the united states because of concerns about large public spaces there is no credible threat right now with specific details regarding public spaces trying to calm the public right now that is understandably confused and concerned about what the motivation could be in one of the most deadly mass shootings in decades to take place in the united states can we how could live with the latest that in washington d.c. all machine in las vegas thanks kony. now catalonia as president has called for international mediation to resolve the crisis over his region's attempt to break away from spain
7:21 pm
almost nine hundred people were injured when riot police tried to stop sunday's referendum on the issue carlos pushed them all said the overwhelming yes vote meant catalonia had won the right to be an independent state but he softened his previous line saying he wants a new understanding with spain not a traumatic break with spanish prime minister mariano rajoy is meeting the opposition leader to discuss his response spain's constitution gives him the power to dismiss catalonia regional government and suspend its autonomy wisdom on the e.u. to intervene but it considers it to be an internal matter for spain european commission spokesman has called for all the players to move from confrontation to dialogue let's take you live now to our visitors john hendren who's in barcelona for us and john all of this leads to great uncertainty for the people of catalonia. it does indeed felicity that there was celebration here today in this square where i am
7:22 pm
right now and all across parcel lonna and catalonia but it was measured they were really hoping the leaders of this is session movement were really hoping for a spectacular outcome a spectacular turnout in that election and what happened was they got about forty percent far less than the spectacular threshold they were looking for but the extraordinary circumstances that led up to this election and during it or this referendum rather than made it significant that level there were arrests of electoral officials leading up to the election there were threats of arrest for those leading it including sedition which carries a fifteen year criminal penalty and then of course you had the this spanish police spanish national police and spanish guard who civill that's the paramilitary force that was accompanying and that's about fifteen thousand or so of them descended on catalonia in order to stop the election and confiscate the ballot papers which they
7:23 pm
did several times over ten million of them they confiscated and then during the referendum they raided whole place after a whole place sometimes violently injuring people which we of course ran on tape that intimidated other people who were going to come to the polls so all of that probably had some effect on turnout nevertheless the president of catalonia carlos says he wants to move ahead with independence. defiant catalans want to turn a disputed secession vote into an independent nation. is a strong nation and i think. only two thousand two hundred just been is because of the bio names because of the repression and i don't like spain because of on a. catalonia is leader asked the world to accept his region's vote for independence
