12:04 pm
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 at 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 al-jazeera as i do joe castro reports. of. a sunday gathering at christian worshipers turned horrific when a man dressed in full combat gear walked in and opened fire. he was dressed in all black this suspect crossed the street to the church and exit is being cool and began firing at the church the suspect then moved to the right side of the church
12:05 pm
and continued to fire that suspect entered the church and continued to fire as he exited the church a local resident grabbed his rifle and engaged the suspect the suspect dropped his rifle which was a ruger they are assault rifle and fled from the church more than two dozen people were killed at least twenty more injured in a town of fewer than nine hundred the death toll made up a startling portion of the population members of the community gathered here to hold a candlelight vigil well into the night to remember those lost. in this town of fewer than a thousand the death toll makes up a startling proportion of the population if back home has a family or family so when it's just promised to stop for doing hard to pray and see how we can serve and that's what you're seeing right here in this community is rallying around these folks and so we're just going to try to do our best to

12:07 pm
. we join hands we lock arms and just through the tears and through the sadness we stand strong oh so strong the church regularly posts video of its sunday services raising the possibility the massacre may have been 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. they gather together in my name and worship me capturing the last days of peace before tragedy. castro al-jazeera southern springs texas which during his news conference with a few hours ago donald trump was asked about what can be done to curb violence this is how he responded that mental health is your problem here this was a very based on preliminary reports very deranged individual a lot of problems over a long period of time we have
12:08 pm
a lot of mental health problems in our country as do other countries but this isn't a. situation i mean we could go into it but it's a little bit soon to go into it 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 saudi arabia has blamed iran for saturday's ballistic missile targeting riyadh say that it could be considered an act of war the missile was fired by iran back hooty rebels from yemen it was aimed at riyadh's international airport but was shot down by saudi forces the saudi coalition fighting in yemen accused iran of supplying the weapons. 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 bandsaw bin muqrin al saud was the son of former crown prince margaret and believed to be
12:09 pm
a close ally of the current one mohammed bin sound on these videos posted on his twitter page hours before his death showed him inspecting defense and environment projects he was the deputy governor of the assyrian which borders yemen. iran and its ally the lebanon based cheer 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 minister to resign saad hariri they announced that he was leaving his position on saturday one a visit to saudi arabia hizbollah secretary-general has on the strada says that riyadh is behind the sudden resignation. says the statement written by assad is if you want to discuss it we need to discuss that. the way south is it's not the way of southern really it's not the way of. bloc and what has been written and that is ignition
12:10 pm
a statement is completely different even since they are the 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 or e says there was an assassination plot against him he criticized hezbollah and iran for their actions in lebanon israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu meanwhile says that iran is trying to dominate the whole region. and i think this is a wake up call for everyone it says what the middle east is really experiencing it's experiencing the attempt of the wrong to conquer the middle east to dominate in subjugated and i think when israelis and arabs and it's all the arms and israeli i want to agree on one thing. people should pay attention we should stop the suing the and take. life out of beirut al-jazeera is in test with the latest into some
12:11 pm
forty eight hours now after that shock resignation by the prime minister what are people there saying and in response to how strong the comments. made and i think it's pretty safe to say that as the political temperature here in lebanon is that people are pitching back in the last hour or so the security cabinet met at the presidential palace with the president michelle and michelle and of course is aide ally with hezbollah a very standard statement that should be said from the president just appealing for calm and promising that there is going to be calm in lebanon however we have had a statement from the justice minister. a nod if you will to this resignation by saad hariri who said that there was a plot to assassinate him the justice minister essentially saying that there was no evidence to suggest that there was some sort of security threat here in lebanon that really backs up what we've been hearing from intelligence agencies here in
12:12 pm
lebanon since that announcement or that resignation from saad hariri that he feared for his life and that quote the climate here in lebanon was similar to that of two thousand and five when his father was assassinated less than a mile from where i'm standing right now whatever the case said the reaction to house in this rollo who of course is the secretary general of hezbollah has also been one of i suppose if you will a sense that he said trying to do very much the same thing as the president which is to present. and image of kong there was a fairly balanced speech a speech in which he didn't isolate mr hariri a sensually putting the blame of this political crisis squarely at the feet of saudi arabia but again as we've been saying the political climate here is very hot indeed in fact we've seen a tweet from a very well known figure here in lebanon and that is saudi arabia's minister for
12:13 pm
gulf an arab affairs a man by the name of tom. he put out a tweet rather saying back quote lebanon would never be the same essentially putting it out there that the political leadership here in lebanon has a choice either at lines up behind saudi arabia or it supports iran and if it does the latter could be in trouble and the president has played down the tensions there is to see to spiral out of control as you said that trying to portray an air of calm there in beirut nonetheless there is this political vacuum now so what happens next. indeed there is a massive political vacuum left by varies resignation one that the government is very clearly at least behind the scenes trying to figure out a way to fill that whether they can find a candidate who can fill this role of prime minister at this stage is really quite frankly hard to say we have to remember that lebanon's political structure is defined essentially defined along sectarian lines which means the prime minister
12:14 pm
has to come from the sunni muslim sect and if they can find somebody to fill that there will be this political vacuum but whether they believe that they can still function without a prime minister at this stage is anyone's guess but as we've been saying they are trying to figure out a way forward and just many thanks indeed in test time there live in beirut a weather update next here on al-jazeera then twenty seventeen set to be mexico's most violent here will tell you what people there say is behind a surge in the number of deaths and u.s. sanctions against sudan have been lifted. but the economy is still struggling to recover take a look at why. welcome back as you look at weather conditions across southeastern parts of asia we've had
12:15 pm
our typhoon damrey breaking up across fee at now and so the weather here is quoting down a little bit house where we've got heavy showers across southern parts the philippine twenty showers across borneo and now some showers pushing in across java and bali now moving up through them in a pinch that we have showers in singapore in kuala lumpur notice this area of rain here and we've seen some torrential rain affecting penang. and really see further rain here and there's a potential for tropical storm development to surpass the rainfall over the following few days so weather conditions here are pretty bad now as they head down into straight here gerri we've seen fine conditions across many parts of the country but we've got this low pressure across southeastern areas that continues to give the threat of some rain so as we look at the forecast we've got the risk of a few showers perhaps just along that southeastern coast but for sydney it should be a generally dry picture for western australia weather conditions not looking too bad at all perth twenty eight dropping slightly ahead on through into wednesday on the
12:16 pm
other side of the townsmen sea we've got this low pressure center pushing across the western side of the south on it and here we're going to see some very heavy rain indeed. we witnessed documentaries that open your eyes at this time on al-jazeera.
12:17 pm
again the top stories this hour on al-jazeera north korea has dominated talks between the u.s. president on trump and japan's prime minister shinzo in tokyo both leaders agreed that the time for dialogue and what they called strategic patience is over trump is in japan as part of his 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 trump blamed the incident on the gunman's mental health issues. that iran and its allies at 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 minister to resign saad hariri announced that he was leaving his position on
12:18 pm
saturday while on a visit to saudi arabia. the top twenty three u.n. climate change conference has just opened in germany these are the first un climate talks since u.s. president donald trump decided that the u.s. would quit the. paris agreement. twenty three aims to drastically cut the use of fossil fuels this century and switch to wind solar and other clean energy as let's take you live now to our environment correspondent nick clock is there so nick is the us represented at these talks. they will be ahead but not in the way that they would have been it is that time of year when the annual climate bandwagon rolls into town twenty seven thousand delegates here they're all arriving right now from all over the world is obvious and politicians and scientists and journalists as well. hold the presidency this year important because of course it's a low lying island nation that faces the immediate peril of sea level rise what are
12:19 pm
they hoping to achieve whether it's all about the paris agreement of two thousand and fifteen remember that was about restricting global warming to two degrees celsius preferably one of the half degrees celsius. having a new iphone eight without the instructions so now they're trying to work out what the instructions would be and and in theory this would be a fairly interesting fortnight for the outside. text revisions and impenetrable wording being rearranged and poor but. then you factor in as you say donald trump in some pretty heavy weather in the past year let's get on to i guess . from world resources institute also former head of colombian delegation in years past so as far as the american involvement is concerned and president trumps position very clear position on climate change how do you assess that how important
12:20 pm
is it for the momentum of the paris review. three things the first one is the triumph right at the outset of the last and what we saw was clearly seen a determination on the part of all of the parties to continue forward with the negotiations i think we. an even better outcome and more decisive kinds of negotiations in america cash precisely because countries and constituencies were determined to show that regardless of what the position of the us was the paris agreement was going forward a second point that i was important to me is the fact that the u.s. delegation that has come to our board is a very seasoned delegation it's on delegates who've been an interest in these grounds for several years understand the issues and don't understand that it's in the u.s. interest to really step up and try to come out with a strong. to me to look back over the twenty
12:21 pm
plus years of the evolution of the climate change or gene has really hinged on us leadership it was obama was decisive factor in delivering paris but when you look across the years you had german hip hop one yet indonesia delivering you had the mexicans delivering the cancun agreement so we've already seen throughout the years many countries stepping up into different kinds of leadership and that's expected to keep happening ok what is interesting about this one as far as trump is besides the delegation is still here but also they said they got approved fossil fuel delegation yank looting whole john forty industries they're going to hold the event here what one can only imagine how that's going to go down. the fact is we are still facing very strong lobbies in constituencies advocating for continued use of fossil fuels i think that the writing is on the wall the economics the markets are very clearly showing that coal is simply not tenable from an economic perspective
12:22 pm
we see the incredible rise in renewables the drop in the price of solar the uptake and the kind of commitments we're seeing coming forth from many countries on renewables on electric mobility so they can have as many side events on coal that's not going to change the trend and the overall direction of travel or if i will even though i was reaching for like i was on thanks very much indeed it's all happening here all sorts of great spirit going on we've got lots of children here holding a save the world. events going on day one week one a fortnight to go by the more to report as time goes on many thanks to cluck that lives in. donald trump's commerce secretary perkins queen elizabeth and a top aide to canada's prime minister and among thousands named in a new leak of financial accounts. reports now of what is being called the paradise papers. more than thirteen million files taken mostly from the
12:23 pm
offshore law firm epilepsy and leaked to the same german newspaper that took hold of the panama papers last year this new release shedding 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 moves to 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 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
12:24 pm
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 a lack of fairness the offshore financial system is also incredibly secretive arguably enabling the wealthy and the powerful to hide today dealings and break the law very difficult when somebody is using five or six different offshore jurisdictions to get a true picture 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
12:25 pm
please come forward day one of the disclosures and already they've been some big names donald trump's commerce secretary wilbur ross with apparent links to russian businesses and aid to canadian prime minister justin trudeau using offshore havens to not paetec sit home and revelations around the investments of queen elizabeth the second the law firm epa be insists they reznor no evidence of 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 al jazeera with more than eighteen thousand people murdered in mexico so far this year twenty seventeen is set to become the country's deadliest year yet. reports from mexico city. would have turned twenty one today instead his family and friends gathered at their
12:26 pm
local church to remember him he was stabbed to death three months ago at a friend's party following an argument several men arrived and killed him in front of dozens of witnesses no one has been arrested get this through some with her family they must pay for what they've done because they destroyed our family they destroyed all of us he had his whole life ahead of him so many plans. i think. these kids just show up and kill each other that's so rough imagine reaching that extreme where these youths are killing each other there's a total lack of security. mexico's latest wave of violence is expected to claim over twenty four thousand lives by the end of twenty seventeen worse than at the height of the drug war a few years ago the main reason for the unprecedented numbers say crime tracking n.g.o.s is the splintering of drug cartels into smaller more violent groups that have disrupted areas previously considered safe we look at can. we look at
12:27 pm
garth. any of the high profile. mexico. and his state of the union address last month mexican president and said security continues to be his government's main priority but many here disagree arguing that his administration has persisted with failing policies of prior governments ever since the beginning of the drug war in two thousand and six mexico has made headlines both nationally and beyond in a conflict that continues to unravel but increasingly neither the government nor the private sector is speaking publicly about the worsening security situation or how to tackle it. something that worries analysts as mexico heads into an election year crime rates tend to go up when elections come along. and another thing and many mexicans might be distracted thinking that they can change something by
12:28 pm
electing another party or another candidate or whatever and this doesn't work this way we have to change our strategy. parents say they won't rest until those responsible for their son's death are found and tried but ninety eight percent of such murders here go unpunished so like thousands of other mexicans they may never get the justice they seek. you go last may become another statistic in mexico's year a relentless bloodshed. al-jazeera lexical city. sudan's government is being urged to take immediate advantage of opportunities for the country's crippled economy last month the u.s. lifted most of its economic sanctions which had been in place for two decades that had a devastating effect on the sudanese economy here bogan reports from khartoum but her man has had his shop for more than thirty years but he says twenty years of
12:29 pm
u.s. sanctions slowed history and he's yet to see any improvements in the economy after the lifting of the sanctions a month ago when the sanctions consumption went down but the value of the dollar in the black market hasn't changed yet its availability is what brings its value down and that's not changed u.s. trade and economic sanctions were imposed on sudan in one thousand nine hundred seven after the us accused of human rights abuses and supporting terror that along with internal conflicts and the secession of south sudan in twenty eleven which had seventy five percent of the country's oil fields crippled the sudanese economy prices soared and haven't come down many shopkeepers say there's talks there on the shelves longer than they should and if you want to see why in officialdom why there are months when people don't it's not because there is no money it has to be prioritized on other things like school fees for example for most people prices remain on affordable sanctions may have been lifted from sudan but just like it
