a pickup truck drove down a cycle lane in lower manhattan the suspect is a twenty nine year old man originally from his back is stung u.s. president donald trump has condemned the attack and says he's considering terminating the green card lottery program i am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program. i'm going to ask congress to i'm really really. initiate work to get rid of this program diverse array of diversity lottery diversity lottery sounds nice it's not nice it's not good it's not good it hasn't been good we've been against it. so let's get the latest from kristen salumi his life first in new york so a significant announcement from president trump on the green card lottery program but how straightforward is it going to be full
a president to actually enforce his pledge. well look the president ran on tougher immigration policy for the united states he's three times now tried to impose bands that have been whole or in part been struck down by the courts because they were viewed as muslim bands and based on religion and not on other sound principles he's run into opposition from democrats certainly who have said that his policies and his ideas are against the spirit of the united states and the country that's been based on immigration so while he is talking about ending this diversity lottery and going to a more merit based system in fact he has been talking about this for a long time getting some form of a system that congress can agree on of course will be difficult he's also talked today about the possibility of sending this suspect twenty nine year old so i followed. to go on tata mowbray as an enemy combatant an issue that was first
brought out by senator lindsey graham of south carolina earlier today saying that investigators should treat this man as such that would give them more leeway in their investigation and give the suspects fewer rights in his prosecution and we have been learning more about the attack and way his allegiances lie what is the latest on the investigation. well we know now that there was a note inside of the truck that pov used to run down the street behind me and kill those eight people and injured twelve more the note did express some allegiance to ice all according to local officials here in new york it says they say that he was radicalized in the united states after coming here in two thousand and ten from his back a stand we know that they have been talking to him at his bedside after he received
surgery for a gunshot wounds that were inflicted by police we know they've been in new jersey where he was living investigating his home and vehicle that hit that store where he rented that truck to use in the attack and they're still investigating here on the scene they say that they were he was never the subject of an f.b.i. or n.y.p.d. investigation we know that the federal and local authorities work very closely on terrorism issues and have so many ongoing investigations and lists of people that they've been looking at two dozen planned attacks have been thwarted here since nine eleven this one got through he was not on investigators radar so now they are widening their search they're looking at whether or not he was connected to other known suspects and whether or not there was any wider plot or any wider connections with the group here in the united states they say so far they have not seen any connection of that but this is still very much
a young and active investigation in fact they're calling on new yorkers and visitors to new york anyone he was here who may have seen something anyone who knew the suspect in his role in his life in new jersey and so on to come forward if they have any information that they may think is used that may be useful to this investigation as they continue to look for those connections and i thank you very much for the latest from yale kristen salumi. well five of the eight people killed on tuesday were from argentina they had traveled to new york as part of a larger group celebrating a school reunion trey's a bow has more from one as irish five argentinians were killed on tuesday's attack one of them was seriously injured and remains in the hospital they were part of a group of nine friends that got together in new york city to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their graduation apparently they did this quite often to remember all time some of them could not afford for the ticket so they helped each
other out some of them were businessmen architects between forty eight and forty nine years old about three hours away from the capital is in the province of of some buffett the place where football star your mail may see was born and at this point that city is completely in shock of the mayor there has declared three days of mourning at this high school that this man attended there was a small ceremony earlier this wednesday and also their friends are calling for a vigil later on wednesday night at this point the argentinean government is trying to assist the victims are trying to help the relatives reach new york city and at some point of course repatriate the bodies for right here president of course condemned the attack and he also said that at this point there is no time this is not the moment to be great that all nations around the world need to condemn terrorism.
now they've been violent protests in the capital of eritrea an opposition group says at least twenty eight people have been killed and a smaller and more than one hundred injured are the claims can't be independently verified a spokesman from the red c.f.r. democratic organization says the protest was sparked by government attempts to close a muslim community school the u.s. embassy in eritrea reported gunfire at several locations in s. lar on cheese day earlier we spoke to salon kidani who is the director of the human rights group release eritrea she says protests in the country are on heard of i think it's about control. of the 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 eritrean public and squeeze out any public snarl where shootings were were heard in the streets separate shootings and even when children were coming out of school equally nursery school children very
small children and young people chased through the streets of us tomorrow. and complete pandemonium protests are not just rare enough announcement i've never seen or heard of 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 they're 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. 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 bernard smith now explains. the construction for the reconstruction of palestinian unity in
gaza this was until this morning 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 for 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 handover part of hamas is agreement to return control of gaza to the palestinian authority this is going to be the end of that division shylock this is the first time to be the end of that the end of the journey of course was the everything was very easy that is what has he said from. the other guys 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 when measured up on a question reconciliation is good for the people in gaza it will help to solve electricity problems leave to 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 tinian will be able to travel freely outside gaza for the first time in ten years bernard smith out has their own gaza well in other developments the palestinian

that has supported the national aspirations of a people who'd suffered discrimination and violence for hundreds of years the wording of the declaration contained a disparity that's borne bitter fruit in the hundred years since promising a national home for the then and future jewish immigrants while only safeguarding or committing to the civil and religious rights of the non jews who lived in palestine of a time ninety percent of the population here. on the other side of the separation barrier students and academics at hebrew university debate its consequences it was one in mongar many and gave a very important thing is for the corporation but nevertheless what happened on the garland was even more important what happened on the ground happened under the author of the british mandate which began a year after the declaration in centers like jaffa palestinian economic and
cultural life emerging from autumn and rule was beginning to flourish at the same time jewish immigration accelerated the zionist project already underway now had the support of a major nation to do i think you this is the beginning of israel and also the beginning of the recognition of israel by the world wide net of the balfour declaration deprive many of their properties nine one of them i mean refugee i live in to fight refugee camp i can't go back to my original village. by the one nine hundred forty s. britain worried about a forcible creation of a jewish state was attempting to hold back jewish immigration now the zionists targeted the british ninety one people were killed. in the bombing of mandate headquarters at jerusalem's king david hotel. i was told the cost little sympathy for the jewish cause surged in one hundred forty eight when the british withdrew the state of israel was declared. the palestinians that moment is remembered as the nakba strophe when hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes and land
students at the university in the occupied west bank say it all began with balfour and. we won't settle for an apology return what he made us lose then we'll accept the apology. and in bethlehem palestinian protesters weren't settling for british commemoration no matter how satirical for them the centuries since the balfour declaration has been one of displacement disposition and occupation force it better have in the occupied west bank. and watching al-jazeera much want to tell you about on the program our emotion was shot office in australia in one detention center improperly guinea six hundred refugees are refusing to leave. and it kills more than a million people each year and now doctors are gathering in brazil to find ways to eliminate the titus.
