12:02 am
with more news on the developing story in canada a toronto police have confirmed that nine people have been killed and another sixteen injured after a van ran into pedestrians police say the driver of the vehicle has been taken into custody and is being questioned the incident happened on one of toronto's main streets which police say could remain shut for days while they continue their investigation over using c.c.t.v. cameras in the area and repeating for witnesses to come forward. i just named us not marks and i saw there is no white you just go to the night sunday morning at night so many people just shouting stop the car but he didn't he just don't give warning and he did something home and nursery people lie down there and they didn't pull at all so the car just kept. hitting people you think it was on purpose or did
12:03 am
it look like it was on purpose i think it's on purpose for the card on the mark being sure like a. car or something. but he just. someone over there then i seen him go ahead i thought he had a heart attack or something so i was trying to chase it down in a way almost trying to catch up see what happened all i see this guy is crumble i mean he's going seventy eighty clicks he's just hitting people one by one going down. and it was a nightmare scene that i was going in for us and i seen the lady with her leg and. you since you just really thought of. his life for us in toronto daniel we had that place to confirm the numbers of casualties so far do they have any more details about what might have been behind this incident. right now they're saying that any word of motive or anything remains completely up
12:04 am
in the air this is this is an investigation they say that's just beginning so the point of speculating is moot truly we will find out more there's probably going to be several more news briefings live news briefing tonight local time but what we do know from those many witnesses because this happened in a major transport hub is that this happened in possibly one of the worst places in the city where it could happen trains buses subways all coming together people going to and from offices to and from homes there's a major university nearby it was a very crowded area and this van came down the street mounted the sidewalk and as you heard from the witnesses there just kept hitting people the injuries apparently sixteen of them so far confirmed many of them are quite serious some nine are sorry some five are said to be critical to very serious and more details are expected to major hospital trauma centers had to be involved so what the police are doing is what they often do in these circumstances not saying a great deal beyond
12:05 am
a few numbers at the top but saying we need more information more witnesses to come forward it was not used to this sort of thing it sees it happening around the world it's not happened on this scale here before so they really don't know what has happened to canada's public security minister is joining the calls for people to feel safe to not worry and saying that the country's national security threat level will not be changed but canadian media has also been reporting that counterterrorism police in the united states have alerted the toronto police they're keeping an eye on it and sharing information if they need it it's a very early stages it's a horrific event the city is probably going to have several days weeks of trauma and more details of the investigation to deal with but having the suspect a driver under arrest should mean that more answers are force forthcoming shortly for now though it's the sheer scale of the tragedy that's affected some people the injuries in such a public place in such a place that is probably going to shut down the city for days in that area in that particular transport hub as the investigation continues it's
12:06 am
a constant reminder to people here of just how vulnerable they are daniel lax thank you very much indeed for that update there live from toronto. tens of thousands of armenians are celebrating the resignation of prime minister sarkozy and he's announced that he's stepping down after almost two weeks of mass antigovernment protests opponents accused him of an unconstitutional power grab robin first year walker reports from the capital year of an. attention turned to celebration after eleven days of street protests the. prime minister. it was a humiliating and facilities for. the band who has clung to power in the for the soviet republic for a decade on monday he was to preserve the peace he said just hours after. joining the crowds. we know that the country has been suffering specifically under the rule of the. mandates of the president with absolute lack of institutional
12:07 am
freedom so be it the judicial be it the the police or be it the. the health or culture or even the religious of the fact that they really took the initiative on in the do individual basis to come to the street shows that ultimately institutions are formed by human beings and human minds and intentions. stepped down after the release of the leader of the opposition his arrest the day before had only served to crowds was president since two thousand and eight his second term in office had ended but applied parliament formed of the constitutional changes he presided over swiftly appointed him prime minister with enhanced powers stripped from the presidency the peaceful protests that focused largely on high level corruption and persistent poverty in

a volatile region they were closely watched by russia with. close ties to the kremlin said it would not intervene describing events in europe as a domestic matter and crowds evident delight. our. enemy for obvious of any generation but especially the young writing with the right . side is. the real what they are deciding this country's future from the first she woke up al-jazeera arabic. and i had to share nan is an academy associate at the think tank chatham house he joins us live via skype from europe and so were you surprised by the turn of events the. yes and no. the reason is that because well i mean it has a track record of. protests. and these ones according to
12:09 am
many analysts could actually end up just like many other protests that have either not traced recorded and results or have recorded very limited results. however this time around as well there was something perhaps something in the air there were perhaps too serious features that sets these protests apart one was that these has generated huge crowds of protesters involving people from various social backgrounds and the second that these were classical nonviolent civil disobedience acts basically we saw was there any suggestion at any point that russia might try to get involved the former soviet satellite and in the past they have not been particularly happy with this kind of protest movements. yet this is an interesting question because in so many other countries in the post of that
12:10 am
region some of the these changes have been very upsetting for moscow many would think that russia would be very unhappy with this project however there was no absolutely no tripoli geopolitical element in this protest and actually russia refrained from interfering because i think it perhaps understood to do one doesn't want to hire its reputation with an unpopular leader so what you think will happen next. the next two days will be very much to see if we know that on thursday the. leader of the opposition. is going to meet with a first a pretty prime minister. now basically acting prime minister got a bit arm and will help talks about the peaceful transfer of power the opposition has demanded that new parliamentary elections be held. and in order for that to
12:11 am
happen they're going to come up with a solution that suited to be within the. confines of the law and i hate to share in ian thank you very much indeed for your time today thank you thank you. where the top political leaders of the who sees in yemen has been killed in a saudi led air strike cell or some other has headed the hooted ministration says august twenty sixth seen it had been considered an effective second income command for the rebel group who theists say he was killed last thursday in her day to a port city also under their control that the from. the forces of this aggression led by washington and the saudi regime are legally responsible for such a crime and all its implications this crime will not pass without accountability we will not allow any crime committed against our dear yemeni people to happen without repercussions. one this we're joined by peter solsbury from new york is
12:12 am
a senior consulting fellow the middle east and north africa program at chatham house thanks for being with us sir can you remind us how significant a figure he was. well this is actually a question of some dispute of the moment some odd was that the heads of the supreme political council that was formed in august of two thousand and sixteen and he was a sensible. figure who filled the role of president in the controlled areas but in terms of his decision making power on a day to day basis he was increasingly more of a figurehead than a major figure he came from the hoop these political wing and as the war continued the military wing and the more extreme wing of the movement really took over what about the location of the killing is that significant while there have been a lot of rumors for some time and we're seeing an increasing concentration of
12:13 am
fighting of airstrikes around the red sea coast around her data the city that he was in the who he's been preparing to mount a defense there for some time but it would appear that some form of intelligence bit of a mobile phone or an inside informant let the coalition know where he was and they were able to able to kill him. or see him quite often with rebel groups one media is killed and then another one steps right into the shoes and that doesn't make a huge difference is it your impression that this is the case here would you think that actually. there might be more of an effect in this case. not not really the the overall decision maker for the who these are demonically hoofy who is generally recognized as the the leader of the hoofy movement some odd came from the groups political wing. half brother muhammad is effectively sort of the the ruler of the who controlled areas of yemen from
12:14 am
son and his full brother the holic oversees security and some on the ground a lot of the country so realistically when you look at the structure of the group he was a political figure a figurehead who was overseeing an organization which was meant to bring the who these together with the g.p.c. the party of value to the sala the former president himself was killed last december by the who fees so what we're really seeing is a we're doing out of many political figures an increasing consolidation within the movement of military hardliners so it so again he's someone who had some significance he was symbolically important to the movement this will be a blow to them but overall it makes very little difference to the movement overall and in terms of how it affects their the progress of this conflict if if you say the hardliners are perhaps more at the forefront does it make it more difficult to
12:15 am
come up with a political solution. i think that's probably writes at him a shot who replaced silas a modest the head of the s.p.c. is known to be a more hardline figure known to be much closer to the key military commanders of the goofy movement and what we've seen again and again is political figures from within the movement being the people who are sent to try and negotiate a settlement and then decisions being made on the battlefield to undermine it so it could be the by having someone close to the military side of things or the top of the political wing of the party if you like at least that communication flow will improve but also were some odd was publicly quite bellicose toward saudi arabia internally he was more in favor of compromise when the shot his replacement is very much of the view that these should should push as hard and as far as they can because of the thank you very much indeed if you announce this thank you thanks for

12:19 am
twenty fifteen agreement between iran and six world powers trump is often called the deal which lifts sanctions on iran in exchange for limiting its nuclear program one of the worst ever in u.s. history. promises another signature to the deal president in one year in a hole has arrived in the united states for a three day state visit back or has already said he'll use the trip to try to change trump's mind our white house correspondent can really help it explains. no european leader enjoys a better bond with u.s. president donald trump than french president emmanuelle macro. macro has carefully culture the relationship inviting trump to paris for bastille day celebrations playing to transend well known admiration for the military the result troubles consulted with matter on the telephone with an any other world leader that ross says he even managed to convince trump to prolong u.s. involvement in syria. president trump was saying the united states of america had
12:20 am
a duty to disengage from syria so i assure you we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long term. his influence over the u. . s. president will be tested on issues ranging from syria to the future of the iran nuclear deal with iran maintains it's in compliance with the twenty fifteen agreement which the u.s. signed with iran and european allies back from a favorite keeping the deal as does german chancellor angela merkel who also visits the white house this week the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into but trump has vowed to withdraw by mid may unless european allies fix certain aspects of the agreement including improving inspections of iran's nuclear programs so far that hasn't happened trumps recent appointment of john bolton to national security advisor and
12:21 am
his nomination of mike pompei oh to be secretary of state both of whom have criticized the agreement have caused even more concern about the deals future in less than a month donald trump must decide whether to allow iran sanctions to be put back in place affectively killing the deal that makes the influence of emanuel macro and angle a merkel pivotal in ensuring whether or not the iran agreement remains intact kimberly help at al-jazeera at the white house. at the white house alan is it really likely that michael can persuade trying to change his mind over that their own deal given the stance he's taken so. seems incredibly difficult given that from the time he was candidate trump before he became president trump he railed against the around deal said it was a terrible deal for the united states and he wanted to make sure that as soon as he was president that america backed out of it he signed it again as he has to do
12:22 am
under u.s. law a couple of times but he said he was not going to do that again that to the fact that his recently appointed national security adviser is john bolton someone who's talked about regime change in iran and the man that he would like to see is his next u.s. secretary of state might pompey or is also someone who has criticized the iran deal it seems highly unlikely that donald trump is going to listen to president my call and reverse his position having said that having said that there is a slight possibility because you remember that as soon as donald trump came into office he said he was going to pull out of the trans-pacific partnership and no the white house is looking at going back into the t p p if he can renegotiate around the edges because he believes that it could be important in trying to stand up against the economic might of china. mccall is good with only one saying look you've got to stay in the iran deal because it's working and we know it's verifiable as well and america will be here in the next few days and she will also
12:23 am
be humming that same tune and fisher thank you very much and the senate foreign relations committee is deciding whether to endorse president trump's pick for secretary of state cia director mike pompei could become the first nominee for the position not to win the panel support with more than half a cent as say for refusing to back him when jordan is flying following events person washington d.c. so how unusual would it be if he didn't get the backing of this particular committee. lauren it would be very unusual only a very few times since the nineteenth century has such a scenario actually come to fruition but it does appear as if mike pompei o who is the current director of the cia will get the endorsement of the senate foreign relations committee in order to become the next secretary of state this is an intermediate step part of the advise and consent function which the senate has
12:24 am
under the u.s. constitution in order to consider the president's nominees to run the cabinet agencies and certainly the secretary of state post is perhaps the most important of all of those posts they've just started their business meeting in the last five minutes or so all of the senators are being given an opportunity to discuss whether they're going to support or oppose mike pompei o but certainly with the last few minutes rand paul the republican on the committee has indicated that he will vote for mike pompei o and that's going to make his confirmation that much more certain that did it split completely and apart on and on party lines well they haven't actually taken the vote yet but it does appear as if it's going to be a firmer vote along party lines we still don't know how some republicans are going to vote of course john mccain the senior senator from arizona has been
12:25 am
a way of fighting brain cancer it's not clear whether he's going to be able to come to washington for that floor vote once it's taken place and there are three democratic senators all three who are running in states which donald trump carried back in two thousand and sixteen who have already announced that they're going to vote for mike pompei oh so not completely as a vote along party lines you do see some people crossing party boundaries for other reasons president jordan thank you very much indeed. still ahead well stocked shelves despite hefty sanctions were taken to a shopping center in north korea whether or no shortages. somali troops take over a u.a.e. run a military base in mogadishu as relations between the two countries deteriorate further. and find out which n.h.l. team silenced this colorado crowd details coming up on transport.

12:32 am
the shelves here are full we managed to visit a number of shops in the city center all were marketplaces catering to the elite we found no shortages and luxury items like chocolates and bottles of alcohol that were clearly smuggled in in defiance of the sanctions the official line is that foreign imports have been replaced by increase domestic production. do you believe i don't know why others around us are starving us dear reporter when we return please tell them we are indomitable no matter what sanctions are upon us. the only medical facility we were taken to was a gleaming new hospital most of the equipment here was imported clearly a problem in the future when spare parts become needed we were shown the eyeglasses which is subsidized for north korean citizens you know what is amazing yes what's the name of the north korean brand oh our. hero yet not yet not ok
