of this massacre the youngest victim was five years old the eldest seventy two now it remains unclear why the gunman who police identified as twenty six year old devon kelly walked into first baptist church during sunday service and opened fire on the congregants who had nowhere to be but what we do know it's likely that the military record air force officials confirm that he received a bad conduct discharge from the air force three years ago that was following his court martial for assaulting his spouse and his child and a twelve month long confinement now federal law in the united states does prohibit someone who has been dishonorably discharged from the military from owning a firearm and so it remains unclear how kelly was able to obtain his weapon but neighbors here reported hearing more than one hundred. rounds fired this is

2:11 pm
a security cabinet meeting at the presidential palace chaired by the president michel really needs to be said as a close ally of hezbollah who in this river is resignation public televised resignation from the saudi capital riyadh appointed to figure out as part of the reason why you know the situation in lebanon had become such that he had concerns and ultimately led to his resignation which he blamed on a plot to assassinate him though we've been hearing from various figures in the lebanese government and indeed from lebanese security forces that that threat is certainly not based on any intelligence they have what is quite interesting is we have been hearing from the lebanese justice minister who said that any resignation from the prime minister would only be accepted if it was quote voluntary now that in itself lends to what we've been hearing here by many sections of political society here in lebanon which is this was a force resignation that mr hariri was forced to resign but now we've seen this footage of him at the palace in riyadh meeting with the saudi king lear to present

2:16 pm
declared that no region or province can break away it's in response to september's kurdish secession referendum the central government in baghdad asked for legal clarification after what it called a misrepresentation of the constitution by kurdish leaders let's cross live now to what the hook in northern iraq stephanie decker is the people there reacted to that stephanie. well we've just had a statement from the prime minister his first since president stood down a member first i'll get into that in a second because the first reaction that we have had significant is from the iraqi prime minister had there are body. for clarification for the k r g to car for their position on this recent supreme court ruling so does that mean in layman's terms what it means he wants the k r g to make it clear that this region will not secede will not seek independence from iraq and because you know the the analysis the
2:17 pm
interpretation of the constitution is one of keeping the unity of this country so that people. will they don't go to really all there they got to accept what back that service. well the people here two of the kurds of northern iraq have seen one of the biggest setbacks that they've seen an extremely long time they will tell you that whatever it is that they want they've sort of been abandoned by their allies they're surrounded by neighbors who are hostile to them these days including turkey that used to be an ally of the k r g of the k.g.b. particularly turning its back after that referendum so now and i think important to bring now in that press conference from prime minister netanyahu on barzani that just took place in the last hour this is the first time adrian that he has addressed the people in a press conference laying out the way for his tone was interesting it was one of really stressing the need for dialogue with baghdad he said they had different interpretations of the constitution but that that didn't mean that there had to be
2:18 pm
any sort of military action of it it was again a case of dialogue we know that there is talks going on behind the scenes particularly when it comes to areas where we are now we're not actually into age and we are in the disputed territories this is nineveh province there's one town behind us where we've just been that's a christian town that hasn't had iraqi forces enter the town in that whole sort of operation that we've seen here over the last two weeks and there will tell you that they don't really care who takes care who rules them they just want peace and security and to be able to live in any normal way so there is still tension here people are extremely uncertain about how things are going to play for but i think reading between the lines there is dialogue happening they have unresolved issues for example the disputed territories the borders that baghdad is still made very clear that it will take back we know there's differences between the two sides but i think for the moment they are continuing to talk which is important because we have of course seen miss you confrontations which is seen deaths on both sides
2:19 pm
stephanie many thanks subzero stephanie decker there in northern iraq donald trump's called us secretary perkins queen elizabeth and a top aide to canada's prime minister they're all along just named it a new leak of off shore financial accounts. reports now on what's being called the paradise paper. 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 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
2:20 pm
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 techs 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
2:21 pm
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 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 day one of the disclosures and already they've been some big names donald trump's come a secretary wilbur ross with apparent links to russian businesses and made to canadian prime minister justin trudeau using offshore havens to not buy text at home and revelations around the investments of queen elizabeth the second the law firm f. will 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

2:30 pm
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 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 spectrum 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 young adam ahmed hopes that some day 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. it is good to have you with us adrian fitting in here in doha the headlines on al-jazeera north korea has dominated talks between the u.s.
