but when i heard the gunshot then i got scared when. police shot the suspect the twenty nine year old male and took him into custody the suspect is reported to be safe. from uzbekistan authorities say the suspect made a statement when he got out of his truck those words are why officials are considering this an act of terror let me be clear to based on the information we have at this moment this was an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror. aimed at innocent civilians aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them the governor is calling on new yorkers to carry on with their lives we felt the pain before we feel the pain today. but we go forward together and we go forward stronger than ever well it's being investigated as

a lone wolf attack however there's a great possibility that we can find a more broader perspective of a scale a skinny a cell this op of this fully operational in the city of new york. papua new guinea's immigration minister tells al-jazeera the country's police have no plans to clear out of form australian run prison camp six hundred refugees and asylum seekers have barricaded themselves inside and i refusing to leave the man asylum site was decommissioned on tuesday straightly and staff have left the facility despite a last minute call happy occasion to block its closure andrew thomas is following the story from sydney. refugees inside what is now the full the present amount of saddam's aren't getting any new food brought in nor fresh water they're using rainwater and nor is there any power inside the person that's been shut off as well they are managing to eat a little bit of energy to power up mobile phones and that's how we're getting information from them via social media but essentially they are living on their own
barricaded in and they're also faithful fearful that locals might break in it has happened before when the word god in the prison back into it fourteen when i was oh man i saw and some of the locals describe the refugees as animals you have to treat them like that they said so you can see the kind of content that both sides have for the other and where these fears come from they're also fearful of the place and the military forcibly removing them and taking them to the nearby town we spoke to propagate immigration minister there on wednesday and he denied that was going to happen. for forty. or forty. years if you so. it should be pointed out that the immigration minister doesn't have direct line management about the military nor the place and they have acted unilaterally in the past now strenuous foreign minister was talking to the australian media on wednesday about this papa new guinea side refugees all australians responsibility this is what she had to say had already been relieved to be suited commendation services are available you know to keep accommodation and
water a treaty and medical support. and i will not be reinforced with trying to do the ship is suggesting there that the refugees may be exaggerating the level of threat they face in an attempt to soften australia's stance she is saying that is not going to happen australia is still firm they will never come to australia and that the accommodation that is being provided elsewhere on the other even though it's not protected and even though refugee advocates say is only half built certainly not suitable to be moved into yet she says he's and they should go there now. catalonia is deposed interior minister has returned to barcelona to chance of traitor by unionist protesters the new san. joaquin foreigner and the rest of the catherine cabinet were fired by the central government after the region declared independence last week ford has been in belgium with former regional president catalyst. all fourteen members of the sacked cabinet are facing
rebellion charges spain's top criminal court has summoned the deposed leaders for questioning it's not clear though whether cardless pushed him or will return to madrid for the hearing andrew symonds reports from barcelona. carlos is only the mission trying to get international support while at the same time justifying why he left his homeland after charges were filed against him by the spanish prosecutor i'm not here to do in desirability because. this is not a village in. the middle of europe. this is not a matter of the. question of the. new relationship. i'm here. to act with freedom and safety. push them all says
he needs guarantees if he comes back and he wouldn't say how long he'll be away in the organization that's involved in all the big process session demonstrations the mood lifts a little i think it only makes sense that at least part of the government can remain operative outside the country because it would not be safe for them to stay in spain pushed him on spent a low profile weekend apart from a call for peaceful support then came the heat on monday with charges filed and he was nowhere to be seen when he emerged in belgium his supporters have a range of emotions from outright anger to dissent what's the mood like now and has pushed the mall's decision to go to brussels done damage personally i think. it did but it's something that we can only. analyze with time if he hadn't speak today it has been it would have been a problem for us because you cannot do that on a friday then go out like have
a weekend of and we don't know if we are a republic of we have we are still part of spain and he's missing christine and i thena has pavan secession for the past seven years she thinks pushed him all is right to leave the us because. i thought he was in political exile or that he wanted to internationalize the conflict both things being good to me initially we were this concerted but now we see it clearly but nothing is clear over what's in store for sacked ministers who have stayed in catalonia vanish from their offices they arrive for work at the dissolve parliament instead insisting their government is still the g eight summit and drew simmons al-jazeera barcelona. in syria people in a besieged neighborhood in homs were hoping that a lasting ceasefire agreement will eventually be negotiated opposition fighters their families and civilians are experiencing food water and medicine shortages.
reports from gaza and tap in neighboring turkey. mohammad and his family lost their house in an airstrike like thousands of people with no income in whole or rebel stronghold in homs mohammad relies on aid from local charities but as the government imposed seeds continue live has become even more challenging. i cannot afford to buy food for my family there's no water and electricity is the struggle. has been under siege since two thousand and twelve civilians wary of the government might let it continue to force people to surround or evacuated the area . around one hundred thousand people live here they remain defiant but that defiance comes at a price owns
a small grocery store supplies are in decline and prices on the rise. we sell at high prices because of the shortages of basic commodities sometimes the roads are blocked and which it was are out of stock for days when supplies arrive they are insanely expensive and my clients are poor how can they pay for their needs and i mean this runs the only local field hospital in the area for years the clinic was operated by charities but recently charities and aid organizations would unite. them we used to treat patients and give them medicine for free now we can't do that anymore our stock is running low if we don't get immediate supplies one month from now i am afraid we will have to close this facility the clinic could become one of the dozens of health facilities shut down in besieged areas across syria putting the lives of thousands of people. the un has described
the syrian government's siege of homes and outrage asking for its immediate lifting so that aid can reach the civilians who are dying from hunger and cold weather as well but i was busier. iraqi forces have taken control from the kurdish regional government of the only operating border crossing with turkey the border gate is located within the official boundaries of the semi autonomous kurdish region of northern iraq. stephanie decker is at the crossing on the iraqi turkish border. just clarify have they actually taken full control of the codes and how significant that would be. no they haven't done it yet it is business as usual here i just got nic to pan into that border crossing you can see the flag the kurdish flag still above the gate and the usual sort of you know
trucks and people are coming and going this is a hugely important border gate both for turkey and iraq particularly the k r g when it comes to trade now yesterday just briefly a lot of rumors as high up coming from the turkish prime minister himself saying that it had been handed over by the kurds to the iraqis that is not the case what was the case is that the chief of miniature the iraqi chief military came here to figure it out also went just a little further down where you have the border crossing with syria. trying to assess the situation before they're going to take control it is imminent sami and i think the bigger picture here is hugely significant what baghdad is going to do is take back federal control all of these crossing these crossings are not in dispute territory these crossings have been administered by the k r g since two thousand and three we're talking borders so borders with syria with turkey and iran were also talking international airports this is the plan and prime minister. has made
it clear even in his speech yesterday he said there will be no admitted joint administration there will be no negotiations what we're doing at the moment is discussing with the kurds a technical and military team but it is a huge reverse in fortune sami when it comes to the semi autonomous. you know administration that this region has considered a huge backlash from that referendum. i hear another huge setback those prima syria's of the moment bring how it's playing out within kurdish politics right now . is what i want. i didn't hear you there yeah how are all these setbacks since the dependent referendum playing out within kurdish politics you can't be sitting pretty. no in the irony of that you know present designer who is such a historical figure when it comes to the struggle of kurdish independence really he wanted an independent kurdistan to be his legacy will that referendum and in and the idea of an independent kurdistan on really lead to his downfall he didn't you
know he didn't admit defeat he didn't apologize that many people you speak to will say that in a way of settling down refusing to extend his term in a way except responsibility so now moving forward you know you have the prime minister who is his nephew net shavon brazil any sort of in charge together with parliament and the judiciary it was interesting we were talking to one political commentator was saying yes it's important for the kurds to get their house in order but what is more important right now in the short term is to have a unified strong delegation all encompassing of kurds who go to baghdad and he made a very interesting point he said you know we've the kurds have learned a very strong lesson when it came to that referendum one jug of free a sacred and you do not mess with that to never rely on america and three certainly baghdad has a lot more to offer than ankara and tehran but i guess at the moment those sort of political negotiations and all going on because iraqi prime ministers made it their
been very clear they need to know the results of that referendum not just freeze which was the get all the borders under federal iraqi control and then they can start talking politics and the role of the kurds going forward stephanie back over from the iraqi turkish border. still ahead on al-jazeera in kenya accusations police used excessive force in trying to contain election protests. however saying some nasty weather making its way towards the philippines recently some very heavy downpours coming in here over two hundred millimeters of rain coming in then and he can see that wet weather that big area cloud which will continue to drive its way further westwards big downpours tonight a little area of first storms storms affecting central and southern parts of
vietnam weather there to into where cambodia has seen some very heavy rain pushing through here we have got the water festival taking place of course and probably water coming out of the sky and the more that as we go on through the next day or so wet weather there for the philippines pushing across southern parts of indochina and it's all going to continue just nudging a little further westward so it's also increasing rain just making its way into the gulf of thailand much of tyler will see some lively downpours see some lively downpours recently around the eastern side of australia it should quieten down to should kill iraq as we go on through the next day or so this area of low pressure that's moving out into the tasman sea so high pressure coming back in behind my great shakes and the temperatures there just sixteen celsius in melbourne ninety degrees there for adelaide but at twenty two for sydney getting up to around twenty seven in brisbane similar temperatures for perth but a little more cloud spilling into the southwest.

president. to step up what he calls extreme vetting of foreigners after what police say was a terrorist attack in new york city eight people were killed when a driver plowed a pickup truck into cyclists and pedestrians new guinea's immigration minister tells al-jazeera the country's police have no plans to clear out a former strangely and run prison camp a man a silent six hundred refugees and asylum seekers are refusing to leave the camp was decommissioned on tuesday. spain's top criminal court has summoned catalonia sacked leaders for questioning after the central government imposed direct rule on the region it's unclear if the deposed regional president. will return from brussels to madrid for the hearing. now the palestinian hamas movement has handed over administrate of control of four border crossings on the israeli egyptian border to the palestinian authority the handover is part of deals agreed in an egyptian brokered reconciliation deal between hamas and the fattah political party in
october but israel remains the only authority that can allow people to travel through the crossings between itself and gaza burnet smith joins us now from the eretz border crossing in gaza so i guess the most important question on the minds of at least people in gaza will be will this mean life becomes easier for them does this alleviate the siege imposed on gaza. well i mean that's certainly the hope some am in the middle of what has become in the last couple of hours a deconstruction. check point. before palestinians could go on for the palestinian or for the. further up the road before getting into israel just get out of the way of all the noise as they cut down this building to you but they'll be some video you'll be seeing shortly of
when i arrived here a couple of weeks ago to show me going through the arrival proceed here in this building that is now being ripped apart now at and here at arras there isn't an immediate day to day impact for the palestinians living gaza because israel controls who goes in and out and it's a trickle of people at the very most but it's the most symbolic visible sign of hamas is power being stripped away from the palestinian authority taking over the last two three weeks the handover the institution taking place this is the first time you see something the most important significant crossing the palestinians is the one between egypt lots and lots of iraq for battle opened on december fifteenth is only not open today because a lot of construction work going on there but when that opens that will allow thousands of pounds of palestinians to cross in so we get the first time the borders been fully open really in the last ten years. all to really what is this
also mean because this is part of a bigger picture of palestinian reconciliation so what does it mean for that process. well it means that there is a suggestion there is there is evidence that there is more likelihood of this reconciliation working this time than in the previous other attempts now there are various reasons why that might be many people will tell you because of the pressure that the egyptians who brokered this deal mainly court on hamas and on the p.a. to come to an agreement egypt sort of turn the screw by keeping close by destroying the smuggling tunnels that hamas used between egypt and gaza that made life extraordinarily difficult for palestinians who were already difficult before those . close to that pressure on. that pressure on mahmoud abbas who might want some sort of legacy he's getting much older now it's not very popular in the west bank he might want to show he's achieved something as well so all of that suggests that
this time there is momentum to this reconciliation process actually we're. going to start there thanks so much bernard smith human rights groups are accusing police in kenya of using excessive force against protesters following last week's presidential election rerun least six people were killed and dozens were injured in the violence home forty people have died in protests since august when the supreme court overturned president ahead of kenyatta is when katherine sawyer reports from the guardi in western kenya. mary a ten year old son callings a chicken was shot during clashes between police and protesters after last week's election she says he was outside the house in the town of me gori in western kenya and in all the bitterest yes. will be president but we are hard to from the things his police have done to us people have been demonstrating peacefully we are not here to have our children beaten and shot. in another part of town.

questioning at a senate hearing she had returned to reports from washington d.c. . facebook now says it estimates that approximately one hundred twenty six million people may have seen content produced by a kremlin linked company at some point between twenty fifteen and twenty seventeen the foreign interference we saw is reprehensible that foreign actors hiding behind fake accounts abused our platform and other internet services to try to sow division and discord and to try to undermine the election. it's directly contrary to our values but facebook also says the russian content represents point zero zero four percent of news feed content in that period or approximately one out of every twenty three thousand articles in fact even as they emphasized the seriousness of the issue all three companies say the content trace to the russians has been minuscule as a proportion of total content and much didn't reference the elections all the
candidates nonetheless members of congress are urging action even as the goal of russian actors remains murky these ads are clearly intended to worsen racial tensions and possibly violence their goal is to divide us and discredit our democracy. that ability to influence is said to have been displayed at this rally after the election thousands gathered in new york to protest against donald trump its alleged will deny this black matter as u.s. were linked to the russian internet company that was advertising on facebook as internet companies trying to understand what's happening and attempt to prove that they're taking the issues seriously they're already censoring posts focusing on race or social inequality because they're deemed divisive and anti american and that has some concerned various sites that tend to publish more kind of radical thoughts had seen significant drops in their search traffic and obviously google
has a monopoly on search and is that's responsible for the majority of the search traffic that the site will see so that is one indication that that goes out arrhythmic updates tend to favor sites more like the washington post the new york times it's clear what the russians who bought social media content were trying to achieve nor what if any effect that content had on last year's election but can't will now be needed that any reforms that are made in the name of u.s. democracy don't leave uses only with content that's been deemed acceptable by silicon valley and members of congress share a town see al-jazeera washington. you can find much more on all those stories if head over to our website. let's take you through some of those stories now new guinea's immigration minister
