10:17 pm
he stockpiled his huge arsenal of weapons and ammunition over decades bidets girlfriend marty donnelly says she had no idea what a partner was planning describing in. kind caring and quiet. let's go live now to castro who's in las vegas for us and that have been some developments with the national rifle association in the past hour the talking about tougher regulation and devices. that's right this is not something that you would normally expect to marry him after a mass shooting the national rifle association a huge lobby here powerful among conservatives usually says we should not do anything to regulate and control guns further but in the statement that the organization just released they are calling for a federal review of a device called bump stocks now these devices were key according to investigators for the gunman stephen paddick to like the mass casualties that we saw here fifty
10:18 pm
eight people dead these devices allowed him to convert a semi automatic weapon into a fully automatic weapon sensually a machine gun allowing for that quick fire that killed so many in the n.r.a. statement they're asking for more regulation of these devices which is significant but is this a complete change in tone for the large swaths of american culture that support gun rights no it is not the n.r.a. in that same statement did it de cry the immediate call for more gun control after sunday's massacre and in fact is pushing congress to allow more americans to carry concealed weapons more easily but there is mounting pressure from the public and from democrats on the n.r.a. to do something as well as on fellow republicans and we heard some movement there as well this morning house speaker paul ryan telling reporters that he and other
10:19 pm
top republicans will consider banning these bomb stocks now with n arrays indorsement to do so that change may be more likely merriam. and of course investigators. still desperately searching for a motive for this attack what are they learned from the gunman stephen politics girlfriend. that's right mary lou dannelly is the key witness here for the f.b.i. and for the police officer she is the woman who lived with the gunman in two homes in this area she was overseas during the shooting and according to a statement released by her attorney she was sent away by patrick a few weeks prior she wasn't told why he wired her one hundred thousand dollars to the philippines where she has family and she according to the attorney thought that he was about to break up with her he she told she told f.b.i. agents who interviewed her yesterday that she had no idea this was happening and still many questions though how could you not notice when there are forty seven
10:20 pm
weapons accumulated in the two homes that she lived in with this man but that's just one of so many questions as far as determining a motive which investigators still do not have the answer to miriam. thank you. the speaker of the council. spain's constitutional court after it suspended its session planned for monday it was expected to declare independence unilaterally from spain off to two million catalans voted in favor of secession. but this is an act of extreme seriousness because it tells the freedom of expression of members of catalonia parliament this shows the total incapacity of the spanish government to result political problems in the political way we repeat what we've always said that we will not allow the parliament to be. meanwhile two of spain's biggest banks appear to be preparing to move their headquarters out of catalonia over fears the region will secede and which is spain's fifth largest bank
10:21 pm
has already decided to move its legal base to l.a. county and there are reports the board of chi should bank is also considering relocation because of the political uncertainty is spain's third largest lender and the biggest catalan company by market value so let's get the latest from call pan hole in barcelona call out to people out there on the streets feel about these latest political and economic developments actually with the banks. well mahram it very much depends what political side of the street you're standing on and right now you can see this relatively small but very loud very passionate very forceful crowd these three forced to flee opposed to catalonia breaking away from spain they described themselves the spanish troops and they turned out to fight the civil guard units in this barracks here in their attempts to stop catalonia breaking
10:22 pm
away from the rest of spying talking to members of that crowd they have well tried the constitutional court decision to suspend the kaplan parliament meeting for monday they say that the spanish state must do everything in it how to stop catalonia writing away of course on the other side as you already mentioned we've heard this week of the catalan allaman comment for a crackdown describing the constitutional court decision are sounding good off and she was a little ambiguous when she she didn't give a clear answer as to whether that parliamentary session on monday would go ahead or not right now we do know the legal experts are looking at that decision and see what the future will be for monday's parliamentary session area and of course we were talking about the banks transferring their legal base out. of the region how much of a blow could this deal to catalonia a time when they're trying to break away. we're talking potentially about
10:23 pm
banks about their land also the price of bank breaking away both of those are in the top five spanish banks facing catalonia back to feel a bit close to the spanish economy in general catalonia or spain's wealthiest regions contributes about one fifth of the entire national economy so will be a blow to catalonia but it will also be applied to the spanish national economy it's not just the banks. the high tech industries or so considering that we were told today they want fire to say they are heading back to be afraid of leaving facts alone but of course listen to this crowd here right now they are singing the it's fine yes long live by they are calling on the spanish government to state strong measures to make sure the break up never happens and hence if the breakup doesn't happen they hope the economic damage will only be temporary and emotions
10:24 pm
are running high there thank you very much call penn hole in barcelona well while much of the focus from the catalan secession referendum has been on barcelona there are claims in smaller villages of a campaign of intimidation by far activists people in the countryside say car tires have been slashed and windows broken since sunday's vote from the village of voters has largely reports. this is what verges woke up to on wednesday on street after street every single car that even parked outside had been worked over one hundred three cars in total very professional very fast nobody heard or saw a thing nor did the attackers care that some of the cars were full of children's playthings you keep some of your things in the car mark is a gardner so. he needs his car for work so no work there is exactly
10:25 pm
why it is i feel that. if the far right did this then we'd be surprised they never did it before but we all suspect is the national police or people close to them. vergers reeks of cancer land history they barely speak spanish air and afford for independence for hundreds of years the us signs from the referendum are everywhere if you want to hit the heart of the enemy it's as good a place as any as you can imagine a little tiny village like this in the middle of nowhere is never known anything like this at all the council and police have begun dusting for fingerprints but you haven't got to be sherlock holmes to figure out the conclusion the villagers have come to that this was a form of collective punishment for backing cattle and independence. bit of humor given all the talk from the doorsteps and balconies as a shock. revulsion against violence and resolve that they will not be overcome.
10:26 pm
several other villages were targeted as well local officials point out acidly that the spanish media are nowhere to be seen. that we know very well the message they're trying to foster the post truth message being created from spine that are trying to turn the truth upside down that we're acting violently in catalonia it doesn't exist. the nagging question of course is whether this is a one off or the start of a campaign of violence towards the cancer lands one thing is certain it feels like the wheels of falling off in spain lawrence li al jazeera verges catalonia israel is planning to close its borders with the occupied west bank and the gaza strip for an unusually long period the closure for a jewish holiday means no palestinians will be allowed to cross into israel for eleven days palestinians say the move is collective punishment as high force that reports from the occupied west bank. it's typical for israeli checkpoints to close
10:27 pm
on public holidays but not for this long israeli government announced this week that the occupied west bank and gaza strip would be sealed off for eleven consecutive days the longest such closure for more than a decade hardest hit by the tens of thousands of palestinians who crossed daily from the west bank to work mainly in construction in israel. on thursday someone renewing work permits and reflecting on the loss of nearly a half a month's wages for some it's worse he paid a broker of his permit it costs him more than twenty five dollars a day whether he works or not and to me about that it's hard on everyone that's daily suffering it's going to cost me more than three hundred dollars for my permits the economic situation in the country is. the forced closure has been linked by israel to an attack last month in which a palestinian worker killed three israeli security forces at the entrance to an illegal settlement israeli media report that the army's closure recommendation came
10:28 pm
only after political pressure from government ministers what israel is calling a security measure palestinians are referring to as collective punishment and with seventy five thousand permit holders working inside israel that comes at a serious cost to the palestinian economy the cost says the palestinian government that goes beyond the loss in wages of up to fifty million dollars. that is the new home and it means they won't be able to buy goods and so impacts on the economic cycle especially given that a number of workers purchased permits from brokers for more than seven hundred dollars a month that. permit renewed. is back home and while in israel work will resume on and off throughout the super hot holiday like tens of thousands of other palestinians who have to wait out the full eleven days it is a considerable expense sorry for sit al-jazeera in the occupied west bank. european union has pledged nearly six hundred sixty million dollars to help deal
