11:04 am
tokyo said now that is going to be the meat of what is taken away from this meetings in this visit by president trump here to japan the start of the press conference the two leaders were very chummy they said very good things very positive things about each other about their relationship but the bottom line at the end of this press conference is that more needs to be done about the north korea situation the last official event on this stop here for president trump in tokyo is a state dinner on monday evening. a vigil has been held for the victims of a church shooting in the u.s. state of texas at least twenty six people including children were killed in the attack on sunday police say the death toll may rise the shooting is the latest in a string of mass killings at the hands of lone gunman as heroes heidi joe castro reports. after. a sunday gathering of christian worshippers turned horrific when a man dressed in full combat gear walked in and opened fire he was dressed in all

11:07 am
tears and through the sadness. we stand strong oh so strong the church regularly posted a video of its sunday services raising the possibility the nasa current was captured on camera this clip is from a week ago we have gathered in this place may you be able to look down from heaven and say those are my children so they gather together in my name and worship me capturing the last days of peace before tragedy castro al-jazeera texas. but during his news conference with around ninety minutes ago president trump was asked about what can be done to curb gun violence here's his response. the mental health is your problem here and this was a very based on preliminary reports very deranged individual a lot of problems over a long period of time we have a lot of mental health problems in our country as do other countries but this isn't
11:08 am
a guns situation i mean we could go into it but it's a little bit soon to go into that but fortunately somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction otherwise it would have been as bad as it was it would have been much worse but this is a mental health problem at the highest level one of saudi arabia's princes has been killed in a helicopter crash near the border with yemen a number of saudi officials also died prince mansoul bin mogen all saad was the son of the form a crown prince migron and believed to be a close ally of the current one mohammed bin salman these videos posted on his twitter page hours before his death show have inspecting defense and environment projects he was the deputy governor of the syrian which borders yemen. iran and its ally the lebanon based shia group hezbollah have accused saudi arabia the u.s. and israel of trying to fuel tension in the middle east by pushing lebanon's prime
11:09 am
minister to resign saad how d.d. announced that he was leaving his position on saturday want to visits to saudi arabia has been as secretary general has says that riyadh is behind the sudden resignation. this is the statement written by saudis so if you want to discuss it we need to discuss that. the way south is it's not the way of some of the really it's not the way. block and what has been written and that is ignition a statement is completely different even sense that harry reid. came to power the way he thinks the way he deals with matters the way his salt problems doesn't go. with the content of those of a nation statement hariri says there was an assassination plot against him he
11:10 am
criticized hezbollah and iran for their actions in lebanon israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says that iran is trying to dominate the whole region and i think this is a wake up call for everyone it's what the middle east is really experiencing it's experiencing the attempt of iran to conquer the middle east to dominate in subjugated and i think when israelis and arabs and it's all the arms and the israelis i want to agree on one thing. people should pay attention we should stop this is a rainy and take your life out of beirut houses here as in test with us so thirty six hours or so on from that shock resignation in tears as the news sunk in with the people of lebanon what are they making of it and of. response. well it's very clear from that speech adrian from the secretary general of hezbollah while putting the blame squarely at the feet of saudi arabia for the
11:11 am
shock resignation of the prime minister saad hariri that he was also trying to calm the situation down it's very clear that this in this role and indeed members of his factions here in lebanon are concerned about this vacuum left by this resignation concerned that it could spiral into a much more serious crisis beyond that of the political it's very interesting again listening to that speech although he didn't point the finger directly at mr hariri in fact that sometimes seemed even conciliatory to mr hariri at one point saying that he was hoping that that he would return to the country as early as thursday if the saudis would bite him in saying all of that the reaction certainly has been coming through here in lebanon people we've been speaking to saying that although lebanon is a very small country it really is oftentimes victim of far more bigger games at play or regional. differences have played most notably saudi arabia and iran people
11:12 am
saying to us frankly that they're tired and all they really want is a functioning government and all they really want stability countries from president to put the idea that this could spiral out of control nonetheless that there is now a power vacuum in lebanon so what happens next. well the what happens next is really an attempt to fill this vacuum but we have to remember that lebanon has an extraordinarily complex political system a political system which is essentially drawn along sectarian lines sectarian lines which means the president needs to come from a maronite christian sect the prime minister has to come from the sunni muslim sect and for example the speaker of the house has to come from the shia sect so when you can. all the sectarian dynamics at play we also need to look at the fact that many of these religious sects also have national patrons or international patrons as
11:13 am
well and that's where the complexities around who's going to fill this role of saad hariri comes in who can hezbollah who can be allies of the president michel and find from the sunni muslim minority here to place into that role at this stage there is no obvious person who can not only take the job but also be seen as legitimate and one would imagine that is something they would try to do or on the other hand may not feel the role all together we have to remember adrian up until this unity government or unity cabinet was put into place at the end of two thousand and sixteen lebanon had no president for two and a half years the idea of no prime minister is seen as something is that the government the country rather the government may be able to manage but what it exposes itself to is that kind of instability is that kind of uncertainty that has in the style of very clearly in his speech was trying to clamp down on and say that the situation is fine but at this stage just what's going to happen next and how
11:14 am
they're going to make their way through this very uncertain time is frankly anyone's guess and just many thanks in test reporting live from beirut what a weather update next here on al-jazeera then ousted cattle and lead a kind of pushed him out of four x. ministers afraid by belgian police but with strict conditions will turn evil and too young to be blacklisted live in canada where parents a lobbying the government to rethink the country's no fly lists. from the neon lights of asia. to the city never sleeps. hello and welcome to international weather forecast now this area of low pressure in the mediterranean in the gulf of genoa is still a very active feature we've seen a lot of snow falling over the alps up to half
11:15 am
a meter in places were also a line of severe storms extending across parts of italy and pushing through towards the balkans the center low is actually going to stay there for a while yet but france pushing on ahead of it giving some really heavy rain some storms tornadoes hardly likely i would have thought the snow still continuing quite conditions across more eastern areas well western areas nothing very special terms of temperatures as you can see so then moving on to choose that a front pushing in across the u.k. some cold air digging down behind it and then that low pressure center still very much anchored to that general region of the mediterranean eastern there is there looking fine care of a bit of sunshine highs of seven degrees on the other side of the mediterranean we've got that low pressure center influence the weather here some strong winds on the coastal jury and with the risk of showers but otherwise for the east fine with highs of twenty five expected in cairo for central parts of africa some heavy showers across d.r. congo towards gabon across west africa there are
11:16 am
a few showers here but lagos nigeria should be dry and fine highs of thirty. the weather sponsored by. provoking debate the corporate tax has not hurt job growth under barack obama. that's not true tackling the tough issues restrictions on media freedom. but challenging the established line every single one of the three thousand people who was killed with a drug dealer yes how do we know that you didn't try them you didn't prosecute them . up front at this time on al-jazeera.
11:17 am
again the top stories this hour on al-jazeera north korea has dominated talks between the u.s. president donald trump and japan's prime minister shinzo tokyo both leaders agreed that the time for dialogue and what they called strategic patience is over trump is in japan as part of a twelve day tour of asia a vigil has been held for the victims of a church shooting in the u.s. state of texas at least twenty six people including children were killed in the attack on sunday the shooting is the latest in a string of mass killings at the hands of so-called lone wolf gunman trampas blame the incident on the gunman's mental health issues that iran and its ally the lebanon based shia group hizbollah have accused saudi arabia the u.s. and israel of trying to fuel tension in the middle east by pushing lebanon's prime minister to resign saad hariri announced that he was leaving his position on saturday while on a visit to saudi arabia. donald trumps commerce secretary britain's queen elizabeth
11:18 am
and a top aide to the canadian prime minister among. it's named in a new leak of offshore financial accounts but in a whole new reports now on what's being called the paradise papers. more than thirteen million files taken mostly from the offshore law firm epilepsy and leaked to the same german newspaper that took hold of the panama papers last year this new release sheeting light on who was secretly investing huge amounts of money in offshore tax havens there's a new global industry that caters to money that moves around the world and this money tax havens and it used to evade taxes to hide assets to steal money if you are going to crime if you buy large businesses the paradise papers are being poured over by around one hundred different media outlets newspapers broadcasters from around the globe and over the next week they'll be disclosing
11:19 am
their findings so why so much interest well first up the money involved here is huge boston consulting group estimates ten trillion dollars is held in these offshore financial centers and while most of us know them as text havens few of us actually use them that's because around half of that ten trillion dollars is concentrated not in the rich but in the mega rich think zero point zero zero one percent of households and while in most cases putting your money offshore and outside of your country's financial regulations is legal many argue hiding from the text men is unfair and critics say governments have been slow to deal with it. but it's more than an equality and aleck affinis the offshore financial system is also incredibly secretive arguably enabling the wealthy and the powerful to hide their dealings and break the law very difficult when somebody is using five or six
11:20 am
different offshore jurisdictions to get a true picture of what they're really doing and in countries need that because law enforcement not easy to cross borders but crime can cross borders so this ross please come forward in day one of the disclosures and already they've been some big names donald trump's come in a secret tree wilbur ross with apparent links to russian businesses and aid to canadian prime minister justin trudeau using offshore havens to not pay takes it home and revelations around the investments of queen elizabeth the second the law firm epa be insists they reznor know if wouldn't survive wrongdoing but legal or not as more information rolls out the public will be assessing with the what's being done is ethical even appropriate or maybe given who's involved just not a good look down the hall and to zero wife not to london and seriously barker is
11:21 am
following reaction to all of this what does the league say in particular needs about queen elizabeth's finances. well it's all over the newspapers are already talking about investments totaling around thirteen million dollars in two companies the first a company called thrasher which is since out of business as a beer and wine company went out of business with a loss of six thousand jobs the other is a company called global house which is has been accused of hard sell low selling utilities and other facilities to low income families often and high credit ratings meaning that people often end up being tremendously out of pocket. these investments were largely made in the cayman islands and in bermuda through the duchy of lancaster which is the queen's private as state the duchy of lancaster have since come out saying that they didn't realize the
11:22 am
investments of be made roughly around fifteen years ago they may have been made as part of a much wider portfolio of investments in multiple different locations some of them of course british overseas territories those sunny islands that of course given this leak the name the paradise papers i think we have to assume that there will be a response from the queen's household called at some point over the course of monday it doesn't of course look good to the marquis has made it massive inroads in recent years to try and be more and more transparent by publishing for its finances ever since two thousand and one by paying income tax voluntarily since one thousand nine hundred three how if you are the head of state this could happen is a big question if you are of course the queen your financial dealings need to be whiter than white and that's of course what the big question will be next is how this happened as far as i understand it no one's actually done anything illegal
11:23 am
here under british tax law but as you say it's all over the papers so is that likely to be any fallout from this. yes i mean the legality of it is is pretty unclear we know on the whole this isn't in any way breaking any laws in the u.k. for the most part a least but there are concerns about the ethics of this as we heard it. report there the boston consulting group estimates something like ten trillion dollars is invested in offshore entities you know that's the combined g.d.p. of japan the u.k. and france together at a time in which you know nations around the world governments around the world are asking their citizens to pay more in tax should it be the case that of course the head of state like the queen or world famous pop stars like bono also linked to in the latest are not paying the tax that they they should be it seems to be more
11:24 am
a question of ethics rather than a question of legality but of course that all that really needs to be deemed to be ironed out should the queen be even associated with offshore entities that we know in the past have been used to avoid tax and bust sanctions it most certainly doesn't look good need many thanks d.p. back to their live in london catalonia supposed president carter's push to mount has been freed from police custody in brussels pushed him out and four of his former ministers handed themselves to police in belgium after spain issued a european arrest warrant. says that he was released under conditions and it's expected to appear in court within fifteen days more now from the dean barber who's in brussels. the charges for which the european arrest warrant was issued include rebellion sedition and at the misuse of public funds charges which carry a possible jail sentence of thirty years so extremely serious lots of people were
11:25 am
wondering whether the five will actually start to apply for political asylum something that color's put him on said he wasn't interested in at the moment that's not an issue but there are several steps that could happen in the next couple of months for those five to appeal if in fact the belgian legal authorities decide to extradite them back to spain beyond that political asylum could buy them some more time although be very unusual for belgium to grant asylum to citizens of another e.u. country for the moment the politicians here are probably very grateful but it's not up to them to decide what happens it's purely a judicial matter it's extremely of course extremely divisive here and in spain parents of children who are mentioned on canada's no fly list calling on the government to remove their names hundreds of children some of them under the age of two are on the secret list which is shared with airlines and foreign governments
11:26 am
danny alack reports from toronto. you'll meet adam ahmed loves video games and he's an avid fan of ice hockey his country's favorite sport two years ago he and his father were heading to boston to watch a match when he was stopped from boarding a flight in toronto a six year old boy is name had been on canada's no fly list three years when we went on a family vacation to mexico my son adam was eighteen months at the time our passports were confiscated for an hour and we weren't given a reason or explanation so we've seen what happens with false data being shared that this can have broader implications on the civil rights and the help and safety of canadians unlike the us canada doesn't allow people to put mistakenly on the no fly list to apply for the right to travel on hinders it's all about a person's name as another canadian called adam ahmed discovered when he was stopped in two thousand and sixteen boarding a flight home during
11:27 am
a trip to india now that he's legally an adult he's worried it'll be even harder to clear his name because there's no official list that the public is aware of but i was very scared being eighteen makes my situation a lot worse. a social media campaign by parents of children whose names are on the no fly list has led to more than one hundred fifty members of parliament from all parties demanding the government make sure everyone on the list is a legitimate national security threat legal experts say as it stands the list is probably unconstitutional these people are deemed too guilty to fly but too innocent to charge and i think that's real the real paradox of being on these kinds of lists is you have suspicion attached to you but there's not enough evidence to bring a court case against you canada's government promised to fix the no fly list last year but then didn't provide money for the program no explanations have been offered parents of the hundreds of children still on the list try hard to explain
11:28 am
the situation to their families what we do try to tell our son is that there are hundreds of canadians who've helped across the political spot from americans as well who are supportive we want him to see that you know you have to push forward that's what you do you have to help your fellow canadian you love your young adam ahmed hopes that someday he'll be able to do what many others take for granted board a flight and take a simple family vacation daniel like al-jazeera toronto the conflict in kashmir has had a profound impact on the region's film industry in the early days of the troubles many cinemas were forced to shot by some groups residents that had to rely on d.v.d.'s and tapes to watch the latest movies but now a new festival is hoping to change all that by reviving the once strong cinematic tradition that sania guy go reports. it was meant to be a welcome distraction from reality
11:29 am
a trip to the cinema and it was no different in srinagar once the post is the cinemas have served other functions including military camps and hospitals. it's a legacy from the early days of the indian administered kashmir as separatist movement that's when a rebel group tigers shot down cinemas no movies were able to be screened anywhere student because he was safe and his friends say they feel they've missed out i think it's high time that the cinema should be reopened i mean we have been hearing from our father for father that they used to go to cinema watch movies watch two or three shows but. why have we been denied from that entertainment but it's hoped the cash may well film festival will change that and introduce a new generation of film fans to the pleasures of the big screen a generation that was brought up watching films on rented videotapes pirated c.d.'s and internet downloads and for the festival's organizer it's essential for
11:30 am
kashmiris freedom of expression we have newspaper and we have television we have radio channels coming up to our already coming so why is. our collecting behind. this a very strong medium and a wonderful art. it will be a challenge to restore the cinemas from the military base camps and the hospitals they've become but the hunger is there specially from younger people who want to experience film in its original form. al-jazeera. video along with the very latest news and analysis that our website look at al-jazeera dot com . it is good to have you with us adrian frank and here in doha the headlines on al-jazeera north korea has dominated talks between the u.s. president donald trump and japan's prime minister in tokyo both leaders agreed that
