us in new york and kristen we're hearing more about the suspect what is the latest on the investigation. well we know that the police came to that conclusion that this was inspired by a cell from a note that was left in the truck that he used to plow into those people killing eight people injuring twelve more on the bike path that goes along this roadway behind me this remains an active crime scene we've been pushed back by police officers here because they are still very much looking at what's happening not only or what happened not only here on the west side of manhattan there in new jersey investigating where the man lived where he rented his vehicle from and they've been talking to the suspect twenty nine year old. from his back a sound as well now they say that they do not have any indication that other people here in the united states were connected to this attack although they do say
that he was inspired by i saw and followed their instructions to carry out such an attack pretty clearly to the t. as we just heard they are continuing to look for those other connections however they say this is a man who had never been the subject of a and y p d or f.b.i. investigation but they're now looking to see if he's connected to other people that were on the radar how he came to the united states while legally in two thousand and ten from baucus and the president of the united states donald trump picking up on that apparently after hearing a report on fox news that the suspect was allowed in through a diversity visa program calling for more that ing of people who come into the united states immigrants into the united states of course this was a campaign issue for him. investigators however believe that this man was radicalized after he came to the united states not before so that's what we have
latest from comments from investigators earlier today because it's a resilient city and people became to. but what does this mean for new york going forward. well we're seeing already increased presence of police officers on the streets doubling up according to officials of police at major landmarks like penn station where thousands of commuters travel every day the new york city marathon is taking place this weekend however and that it will not be canceled but you can bet that there will be added protection along an already very protected route here in new york as thousands of people gather to watch and take part in that annual spectacle of officials are actually encouraging people to go about their business however this is the largest attack on new york city since nine eleven but dozens of others have been thwarted in between the nine eleven and today and yesterday's attack so the mayor and the governor calling on people to continue
to go about their business and not be deterred by what they called an attack on our values an attack to break the spirit of new york in the united states thank you very much kristen salumi with all the latest from new york. but been violent protests in the capital of eritrea an opposition group says at least twenty eight people have been killed in us mara and more than one hundred injured though the claims can't be independently verified a spokesman from the right see afar democratic organization says the protest was spot by government attempts to close a muslim community school the u.s. embassy in eritrea reported gunfire at several locations in a small are on choose day earlier we spoke to salaam kidani who's the director of the human rights group release eritrea she says protests in eritrea are on hurdles . i think it's about controlling civil life i don't think it's about religion at
all whatsoever because if it was religion it would have been done in consultation with the people and getting the people on board i think this is a draconian measure to yet again control of the air tran public and squeeze out any public space and any freedom of expression any print i'm afraid just less ship any form of liberty civil liberty one of my colleagues describe it to me as bringing more by the short term to asmara this is a very useful city but they describe it as black hawk down moment for us tomorrow where shootings were were heard in the streets separate shootings and even when children were coming out of school equaling nursery school children very small children young people being chased through the streets of us tomorrow. and complete pandemonium protests are not just rare enough announcement i've never seen or heard
of the protests since eric has independence or maybe even before that so this is this is a very unique and maybe even a one of this young people have taken matters into their own hands and yet there i mean this is this is a country that is ruled by fear and yes people are taking enormous risks and it's a very courageous step to take. at least twenty six people have died in as strike in the northern side a province in yemen a stronghold for the hoofy rebels as thought the saudi led coalition was behind the strike the plane struck a hotel in a market and this a hard distrait near the saudi border the coalition hasn't confirmed or denied that it was behind the attack. the palestinian hamas movement has handed over administrative control of three border crossings to the palestinian authority it will now control the palestinian side of gaza's border with israel and egypt but the handover may not mean an end to the blockade on gaza as bonnet smith explains.
the construction for the reconstruction of palestinian unity in gaza this was until this morning hamas is customs post near the border with israel. al-jazeera was last here almost three weeks ago and this is where i have to have a visa or permission to enter the gaza strip. now it's been taken apart. the. mediators from egypt along with officials from hamas and fatah oversaw the hand-over part of hamas is agreement to return control of gaza to the palestinian authority this is going to be the end of the division shylock this is the first time to be the end of the journey because we see everything was very easy as you said. this is the seventh attempt i was doing in reconciliation in gaza in the last ten years but this is the
first time that we've seen the physical tearing down of hamas is institutions here and it's that it's giving weary palestinians in gaza a faint glimmer of hope this time of reconciliation might just work. the cost of living should also come down hamas used to levy taxes on goods and food a car could be twenty five percent more expensive here than in the west bank that's now stopped. at this crossing the handover of power will have little practical impact for palestinians because israel lets hardly anyone leave the few that left today were hopeful the conditions might improve. reconciliation is good for the people in gaza it will help to solve electricity problem. lift the siege and solve other problems it's the border between gaza and egypt that the people here are desperate to see reopened construction work is keeping it closed for another two weeks when it's ready i was students will be able to travel freely outside gaza for
the first time in ten years bernard smith al-jazeera gaza. the palestinian authority says it's planning to sue the british government over the balfour declaration a policy statement that pave the way for the creation of israel for just as in bethlehem in the occupied west bank made an effigy of affable for who was persons foreign secretary on november second in one nine hundred seventeen when the declaration was signed the pledge is generally viewed as one of the main catalysts of the not the ethnic cleansing of palestine in the one nine hundred forty eight many palestinians blame belfour for a century of conflict. elsewhen breath landing banksy has been marking the anniversary in his own unique way sorry for said was that. between the separation wall and his walled off hotel here in bethlehem the british street artist banksy is putting on a twisted version of a street party a british street party in commemoration of one hundred years since the balfour
declaration in which britain signed up to support the project of a jewish national home here in palestine only committing to the support of the civil and religious rights of the ninety percent of the population at that time which it defined as non jews i the palestinians and so there are fifty palestinian children from nearby refugee camps who are here enjoying this street party what we are waiting for is the unveiling of a banksy artwork which we expect to reference the balfour declaration. so there it is. in to the separation wall an apology of sorts from britain of course the palestinians have long been arguing for a proper official apology from the united kingdom right now the israeli prime minister is in the u.k. for functions marking one hundred years since about four declaration the british government has expressed pride in its role in securing
a national home for the jewish people although it does say that so far the other part of the balfour declaration safeguarding the civil and religious rights of the non jews has yet fully to be realized as far as palestinians are concerned it's much worse than that the two hundred years have been characterized by dispossession division displacement and occupation there will be protests both here in palestine and in london. and watching. using excessive force against protesters as the fallout from last week's election in iraq continues . and it kills more than. people a year now doctors are gathering in brazil to find ways to eliminate the titus.
