children were killed in the attack i do jocasta reports now from southern springs texas. inside the white steepled sanctuary of the first baptist church of sutherland springs a scene of horror unfolded on sunday morning survivors described a young man wearing a skull mask and dressed for combat walked in and opened fire on men women and children the youngest victim killed was just a year and a half old why this trip why would you do this to people like that that are just praying there just were speak why would you attack them on something so wrong on a sunday when there defenseless police say people had nowhere to flee more than two dozen are dead and another twenty injured the victims account for a start only ten percent of the small town's population leaving a gaping hole in the community i'd still like to think i don't even have the need
to hear the president donald trump speaking at a joint news conference with the japanese prime minister said the massacre reflected a mental health problem at the highest level 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 a guns situation from said in fact a gun in the hands of two men who chased the gunman from the church may have prevented further carnage i did what i thought i needed to do which is they said that there's a shooting i pursued and i just did what i thought was right that the gunman identified as twenty six year old devon kelly crashed his car and was found dead inside next to a cache of weapons police say they're narrowing in on a motive there was a domestic situation going on within this family. the suspects mother in law
attended this church we know that he had made threatening threatening she had reset threatening text from him military officials say kelly received a bad conduct discharge from the air force three years ago after serving a year in jail for assaulting his then wife and child his parents in law were not present at sunday service today with rapid fire you can see. the f.b.i. continues to process the crime scene outside of the church agents are now using metal detectors to sweep for discarded bullet casings it is startling to see this scene unfold on a field normally reserved for picnics and games but life in this community will never be the same again a time of peace a memory. let's go live now to heidi who is in southern springs texas and we are learning more about the background of the shooter with police having established
that a domestic dispute was at the heart of this mass shooting what more are we learning . that's right mary and more reports of the violent history that the shooter have with his family going back to two thousand and twelve court martial in which kelly was prosecuted for having cracked open the skull of an infant stepson that leading to his twelve month long confinement in military jail and finally his discharge for bad behavior so that leads us today four years later he was able to purchase weapons after leaving the military making many question whether some laws might have been tightened to prevent him from owning firearms that may have prevented this violence from unfolding mariyam as you say heidi many questions being asked about how he was able to acquire a gun with this history of violence and with this conviction for assault against
his own family and what about the community there it is a very it's a tight knit place how are they how are they reacting how they are and how are they digesting what has happened. before sunday mariyam this was a town that was little known outside of its immediate area it's one of those towns in texas where you drive through and you don't even realize you've been there until it's in your back to back you mirror and for many here that's how they like to they like to be quiet it was idyllic it was simple all of that peace was shattered on sunday in this community remains in disbelief i spoke with a woman who owns a restaurant across from this church she saw all of this happen she's still in shock. she says that she lost a good friend and that friend's three young children as part of a massacre. you know that in
a community in this small there is simply no one left untouched by this violence. thank you heidi jo castor with the latest from southern springs texas. former lebanese prime minister saad hariri had been told by saudi arabia that acts of aggression by hezbollah were effectively a declaration of war this is according to saudi gulf affairs minister tom are all sub par and quoted in saudi needier now this comes as harry met the saudi king solomon in riyadh two days of his shot resignation he blamed iran for destabilizing the region and said he feared an assassination attempt as iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah of a q saudi arabia forcing him to step down well united nations says it's worried a blockade against yemen could hamper humanitarian efforts saudi arabia cut to land
sea and air access to yemen after who see rebels fired a ballistic missile targeting its capital on saturday riyadh is threatening to retaliate and has called on the u.n. to act diplomatic editor james bays has mall. the humanitarian situation in yemen is one of the grey vista in the world it's so bad a child under the age of five dies in the country every ten minutes from causes that should be preventable twenty million people out of a population estimated at twenty seven million are in need of humanitarian assistance but it appears for now all international aid is being cut saudi arabia has announced it's completely blockading the country cutting all air sea and land links its reaction to a missile fired towards riyadh by the who these who control a large part of yemen including the capital sanaa to u.n. flights into the country have already been blocked and we're trying to see whether
we can get our normal access restored and we're hopeful that we will be able to continue our normal operations we once more. underscore to all parties the need for regular humanitarian access to all parts of yemen that are in need when the u.n. says it's hopeful its aid can soon resume that's only based on the fact that the saudis current blockade is said to be temporary when you look at the words the u.n. is using it's clear they're treading carefully the reality is that saudi arabia has been making restrictions on the aid medicine and food allowed into yemen for years after facing turmoil conflict and an ongoing cholera epidemic the conditions in yemen can only be described as dire and they look set to worsen even further jamesburg zero at the united nations. meanwhile who sea forces are threatening saudi arabia the armed group says that
a saudi airport is within firing range and could be targeted it's also threatening an airport in the u.a.e. . you know. we call all passengers an airline and not to be at any saudi u.a.e. airport as they are legitimate military targets for our missiles and we shoulda no responsibility of to such warning the continuation of the aggression against us forces us to search with strong and diverse ways to respond to such aggression and terror. the u.s. president has wrapped up his trip to japan where he met prime minister shinzo r.b.a. the nuclear threat posed by north korea dominated the talks with both leaders agreeing the time for dialogue is over donald trump now heads to south korea as part of his twelve day visit to asia arguably the most at risk from north korea tony reports from seoul. the u.s. has been flexing its military might for president visit its state of the art u.s. b.
one supersonic bomber has been flying close to the border with north korea in the western pacific three u.s. carrier groups stand ready and in japan stealth bombers are be moved to within striking distance tensions have been on the rise on the korean peninsula since the u.s. president and kim jong un began their war of words the north korean leaders planning to produce an intercontinental ballistic missile tipped with a nuclear warhead that can hit the u.s. mainland trump has vowed to stop that happening some south koreans are worried the president's saber rattling could provoke a conflict those sorts of rhetoric increases the possibility of war rather than decreases it is behavior raises a question about his qualification as the leader of a country. rather than pressuring north korea with rhetoric a dialogue should take place for a peace treaty between north korea and the u.s. that this crisis can be addressed. before war breaks out south korea will be put in a grave danger. conservative south koreans however who've lived through the war
under the threat of several unpredictable north korean leaders see president trumps similarly unpredictable character as an asset he believes trump who is a bit irrational could be a factor in rational approaches taken under the clinton and obama administration did not work north korea developed a number of nuclear weapons and new approaches like trump could solve the issue the threat of war is at its highest in years assessments commissioned by the us congress estimate that if conventional war broke out in korea twenty to thirty thousand people would die every day some koreans remember the terrible human cost of the last war which ended sixty four years ago nearly three million people were killed during the three years of the korean war one point six million of them were civilians and no one here is under any illusions about just what another war would mean. south korea's liberal president moon j. in insist that dialogue is the only way to resolve the crisis which donald trump
has called appeasement and our policy is not an appeasement but a realistic one with no alternative taking military options to take out north korea's nuclear weapons which trump i mentioned in another words staging a war to end north korea's nuclear program would be a very foolish policy has been little rhetoric coming from the north korean leader recently state media has been releasing pictures of him focusing on economic development such as visiting farms and cosmetic factories but no one is discounting the possibility that behind the smiles he's planning something to mark donald trump's visit tony berkeley al-jazeera so i watching out as there are still to come from donald trump's commerce secretary to britain's queen elizabeth they report on explosive offshore financial information late in the paradise by us. and germany the host of the un climate change conference comes under fire for its own environmental promises.

donald trump secretary of commerce wilbur ross has ties to russian businesses linked to people close to vladimir putin and it appears that portions queen elizabeth has avoided paying tax thanks to money funneled through offshore tax havens these baka has more now on the so-called paradise papers. it is a massive leak one point four terabytes of material more than thirteen million files most from the offshore law firm applebee they shed light on the secretive world of offshore tax havens and the financial dealings of the mega rich the far as who obtained by saddam the same german newspaper that acquired the panama papers last year this is a well established part of doing business these tax measures may not be any. but the same thing chrissy is used by people who are seeking to cover the tracks of their criminal behavior grand corruption kleptocracy requires offshore
secrecy as the getaway car for the proceeds of those crimes the files are being examined by around one hundred different media outlets newspapers a ball casters from around the globe it's ross please come forward day one of the disclosures and some big names donald trump's commerce secretary wilbur ross with a pound links to russian businesses and revelations about the russian tech tycoon yuri milner documents examined by the new york times suggest that kremlin controlled entities bank and energy giant gazprom partnered with milner to acquire sizable chunks of facebook and twitter the disclosure is likely to increase concerns over russia's use of social media to apparently interfere in last year's u.s. election. also in the spotlight of revelations around the investments of queen elizabeth the british monarch around thirteen million dollars from the queen's private estate the duchy of lancaster were invested in funds in the cayman islands and bermuda
it's not illegal for the queen to have done that but given that she is the head of state and that her duties are paid for out of the public purse can she really afford to be secretive about her finances. some politicians are calling for a public inquiry into the findings anyone is. putting money into tax havens in order to avoid taxation in britain obviously investigations have to take place should do two things not just apologize for it but also recognize what it does to our society the boston consulting group estimates that ten trillion dollars is held offshore that's the combined output of japan france and the u.k. the law firm appleby insists there's no evidence of wrongdoing. investing money offshore powered by silence outside a company's financial regulation is not illegal but an important question still remains is it ethical the park out zero london the cop twenty three u.n.
climate change conference is underway in germany is the first such meeting since donald trump decided to pull the u.s. out of the twenty fifteen paris climate agreement government experts gambon in bonn will be discussing how to put their plan in place to combat climate change fiji is chairing the two week summit the country's prime minister has already called for urgent action on climate change as the island is suffering from its effects the clock is in on force and said this update. it is that time of year when the climate bandwagon rolls into town twenty seven thousand delegates this year the conflict presided over by fiji which is a nation of course very much facing its own peril immediate sea level rise what is this conference all about it's all about trying to figure out the rule book for the paris agreement which was forged back in two thousand and fifteen aiming to keep global warming below two degrees celsius preferably one of the half degrees celsius someone like in the paris agreement to
a brand new i phone ten but without the instructions and this conference is all about trying to write the instructions for the paris agreement there's still a u.s. delegation here despite president trump promising to pull out of the parents agreement that can actually physically happen until twenty twenty so that delegation is here and they along with everybody else are going to have to work very hard to move things on especially as two thousand and seventeen it's just been announced as one of the hottest years on record. it's a hundred years since the bolsheviks on the wind. one of the key events in the russian revolution that's a woman in world history it's been described by historians as the birth of the soviet union. reports from long days in the centenary has been largely overlooked by russia's current leadership. old habits die hard in st petersburg events marking the bolshevik revolution sent ten
or at least something of the old celebrates reactions to the anniversary was how to quit the soviet times a day of pomp and ceremony but these days russia. was a thing it was. after a while you start to re-examine these events and there is no unequivocal opinion on it is too complicated too many things are connected with it. at school we were told one thing then there was more information and we learnt the other side nothing is ever black and white there are ten different shades this unease goes all the way to the top. we see how ambiguous its results were how closely the negative and we must acknowledge the positive consequences of those events are intertwined let's ask ourselves was it not possible to follow an evolutionary path rather than go for the revolution. few beyond a handful of still committed communists would appreciate bombastic anniversaries
like in the soviet days but it seems there's zero state enthusiasm for holding an official event or even market moments that change the world it's not hard to see why putin's government finds the bolshevik revolution a difficult subjects that brought down an empire led to the murder of the former ruler and millions of citizens and shattered the global order of the day how do you follow all of that in some modern russia states indorsed mantra stability. the governments may be mostly mute but others aren't st petersburg's winter palace now houses the hermitage museum and it was down these corridors that revolutionaries ran a century ago to depose the provisional government's visitors to the near exhibition here can amongst other things see portraits of perforated by bandits in one thousand nine hundred seventeen. journalist and author. has set up project nine hundred seventeen which reports the revolution day by day as if it were happening
now he's happy there's little official interest in today's russia sometimes almost all all the time history's being used as a propaganda tool so now in terms off nineteen seventeen there is no official put in approved person off that revolution and that's cool that means that we can discuss it we can explore it we can make independent historical or media projects about that and we see no obstacles. whether it be packaged as education like make of project or entertainment like this projected sound and light spectacular interested russians are talking about a revolution even if that government is. rory chalons al-jazeera st petersburg. iraq's highest court has reacted to the non-binding
