lockdown in indian administered kashmir as hindu pilgrims and tourists were ordered to leave over security concerns. a store filled with weekend shoppers on a summer morning in texas when a gunman walked in and opened fire it quickly turned into a scene of panic when it ended 20 people had lost their lives in the latest mass shooting in the us it happened in the city of el paso police arrested a 21 year old man and say they're investigating what they believe may be a hate crime president donald trump has called the shooting an act of cowardice alan fischer reports. heavily armed police moving through a shopping center in texas after reports of an active shooter in other parts of the mall in el paso shoppers were held in place while people try to work out what was
5:02 am
going on. you know your column here right in. there and it got out there then there was what has become common in america lines of people being led from the scene of another mass shooting on on a day that would have been a normal day for someone to leisurely go shopping. turn into one of the most deadly days in the history of texas. lives were taken. should still be with us today. 20 innocent people from el paso. have lost their lives and more than 2 dozen more. are injured. we as a state unite and support. police have arrested one man
5:03 am
a 21 year old who allegedly posted a reese's grand online on an extremist website just a note or so before the shooting but needless to say this scene is a riff equivalent unfortunately because of the nature of the situation the scene will be in play for a long period unfortunately the c.s. will remain at the scene until the scene is process properly for. evidentiary purposes to be gathered for later prosecution the state of texas will be the lead agency for him to be prosecuting this particular individual. that has a nexus s. this will point in time to a hate crime the f.b.i. will be looking into that with the other federal authorities right now we're looking out for to capital murder charges for this individual clint emotional democratic presidential hopeful back to ork who is from el paso announced he was
5:04 am
canceling for the campaigning and heading back to the city and so i just ask for everyone strength for a passer right now everyone's resolved to make sure that this does not continue to happen in in this country u.s. president donald trump has been informed of the shooting and promised the city and state any help required this is the 13th mass shooting in the united states in just the past 7 days alan fischer i'll just read it. all rob reynolds is live for us now in el paso so rob what more do we know about the shooter at this point. well we know. 21 year old busy white male is alive and in custody the origins here say that he will likely be charged with multiple counts of capital murder you heard in allan fisher's report just
5:05 am
a few moments. that he had left some sort of writing on the on line from his political thoughts or. what can only really be described as a sort of racist screed i asked governor greg abbott the republican governor of texas a few moments ago when he was here talking to reporters if there was anything that he could think of that is brought in the body politic and the rhetoric in the united states political discourse these days that could have inspired someone to do something like this and he simply said that this is a disgusting and despicable act and doesn't represent. anything about texas as far as where this band was from we know that he was from a city called al and it's in the suburbs of dallas this is a big state texas and that's over a 1000 kilometers away so he drove here specifically to el paso to carry out this
5:06 am
deed it would appear. certainly this scene behind me where you can see police have cordoned off this a massive homicide investigation now and what already is will be looking into this individual's writing use it to. speed or actions possibly with other people if there were any either online or in person and attempt to find out more about his motive for this horrific act that has shocked the city the past so the state of texas and shocked once again the united states of america. yeah and as that investigation unfolds rob but as to what may have been the motives. for this the fact remains that we we are once again talking about yet another mass shooting in the united states you know on some on sunday night i was doing the same thing i was doing a report about a mass shooting at
5:07 am
a garlic festival in gilroy california so these things happen all the time and you can now and a mole in the wal-mart superstore to the to the long list of places in the united states that includes churches schools synagogues mosques bars nightclubs rock concerts country music venues where it is no longer safe where it is always possible that something like this could happen. and as far as texas i know that that is a state that has some some quite liberal. gun laws so. i suppose that 40 something like this was was perhaps inevitable. well nothing is inevitable course but it has happened before in texas and me and my fellow journalist covered a shooting in a small town sutherland spring several years ago were more than 2 more than 20
5:08 am
people were killed in a sure church yes it is true texas has lax gun laws it encourages. there are laws that allow for the concealed carry. weapons even on college campuses and places like that but let's note also that the california where the most recent form of this mass shooting took place has some of the remotest restrictive gun laws in the nation so what did the shooter do in that case he went to nevada right next door where he could buy a gun much more easily could and he would have been able to buy in california so really gun control and gun restrictions are only as strong as the weakest link the weakest state regulations and you're right here in texas those regulations are pretty weak for the moment. paso texas thanks paul.
5:09 am
our police station in hong kong has been vandalized in the latest the anti-government protests there have been going on for months now and began over an extra bush extradition bill that would have sent criminal suspects to mainland china the proposed law was suspended but protesters are now demanding greater political reform andrew thomas has more. than other nights and another area of hong kong is the site of confrontation this time the shopping district of kaolin on the northern side of hong kong harbor. protests that started calmly tens of thousands walking a route approved by place but thousands branched off and they'd clearly come prepared for violence you come with a gas mask with a helmet you've hidden your face white. afraid and after all the protests photos and i mean. our become the one who'll be
5:10 am
arrested aren't you provoking the place by coming dressed like this. are you wanting violence no i don't want titles but only protesting. these protests began back in june with specific demands that proposed laws allowing people to be extradited to mainland china be scrapped now though these protests are about political reform democracy so this is no longer about the extradition snow no longer get i mean maybe it's about 1 extradition 2 months ago but now is about our democracy we rudie space we all corners. real hong kong not china government not british but us but the protests are also now about expressing anger towards the policing of previous events this police station became the focal point on saturday with people hurling rocks at the compound. leaving cards smashed inside and lighting fires after an hour under
5:11 am
siege came the inevitable confrontation the planes have now moved and you can see them flying from the ground is moving fast. there are more protests planned to sunday the recruits for a general strike on monday it's impossible to know how or when the hong kong return to normal calm people lose their satisfaction to the government and now it's the summer of discontent. discontent which on saturday yet again turned ugly under thomas al jazeera hong kong are thousands of people in hong kong also rallied for an end to the protests they called for unity with china and said the one country 2 systems policy of hong kong works they urge protesters to express themselves peacefully and help posters showing solidarity with police. i
5:12 am
hate and firmly oppose the recent violent incidents which damaged our good life we are really loving our china and hong kong the violence make is a driven by all tyria motives and manipulated by external powers so they damaged our hometown hong kong they stand absolutely opposite to hong kong residents are just chang is a political analyst and former professor at city university in hong kong and joins us via skype from there thanks very much for being with us so. what do you make of what we've seen in hong kong over the last 24 hours. antigovernment protests and the clashes with police and then people on the other side coming out into the in the streets showing their support for for beijing what do you make of all that. so it has now become a test of political will those kerry administration has got to go
5:13 am
a strategy of no more concessions no more apologies are strong crackdown on the auto spurs and strong backing for the police. is waiting for the public opinion hard to turn at the same time the protesters have got a google warfare kind of picks they want to come and say the kerry go amiss ration has lost its legitimacy and has increasingly laws is effectiveness he could be involved one of the trying this of on july 21st in new known in the new territories and the strong backing of the police beating and by a good character and the situation probably pushed the crisis to a little level yeah i want to ask a little bit more about the pro-democracy protesters because i think it's fair to
5:14 am
say they've gotten a lot of sympathy from from the public outside of of hong kong or around the world but are they doing themselves any favors with some of the tactics that some of the have have deployed in that big of the clashes with police and there was the seizure of the parliament building last month as well does all of this work in their favor . it is fortune made that at least up until known public opinion and international public opinion has been on the side of the pro-democracy movement that the months are very clear but at the same time the protests are participate mainly by probably tens of thousands of angry young people they have no organization they have no leaders and it is extremely difficult to negotiate with them and therefore it is a certain deadlock and even if even if the government is willing to
5:15 am
step down and gates and you know god know it is extremely difficult to explore to see how a practice form can be established. good to speak with you joseph chang in hong kong thank you. oh plenty more ahead on this news hour find out what's at stake in the latest round of talks in qatar between the u.s. and the taliban. on the road with argentina's delivery workers who have plenty of jobs but no security. and a 1st for this formula one driver all the action from qualifying about hungary and grand prix coming up later. police in moscow arrested more than 800 people before planned protests on saturday but that didn't stop others from taking to the streets there is anger over the
5:16 am
exclusion of some opposition candidates in upcoming city elections saturday's demonstration follows a similar one last weekend imran khan reports from the russian kept. me from the police operation designed to stop large numbers of protesters coming to central moscow did exactly that still some did manage to get through the detentions was swift so all throughout today they've been arresting people like this they pick them up. and they take them into. a van where the idea is will be to. the protesters are normally take also police to them to register journalists were also detained but released almost immediately once they showed proper accreditation protesters a worry the upcoming last go city council elections are being rigged in favor of the governing party united russia most of the opposition candidates have been arrested but one who is at the protest said the numbers will load because the
5:17 am
authorities are cracking down. everything depends on how people will react so far there are not many of us many people are unhappy with united russia and support is the lowest since 2006 but people are scared of coming to the streets or taking party rallies half a 1000000. the streets. despite the crackdown the protestors that did make it were hopeful change might come down most don't mean yes i'm here because i have a conscience i don't like a lot of things that are happening in this country i'm happy that the young generation woke up and want to have their voices heard i am here because candidates weren't allowed to run i'm against banning of alice i'm against the crackdown and i think protest is the only way to show your opinion police say the protest was illegal and detentions were low and opposition monitoring group says the numbers were you much higher than the police who claim it's not clear what's next for russia's protest movement but the authorities are hoping the show of force has stopped a completely immoral cause how does a moscow. is
5:18 am
a professor of international relations at the london school of economics she says russia's government is using the same strategies it is used in the past to crackdown on protests. i think it could certainly backfire and in some ways this is a very clever strategy that the regime is using and has used in the past of provoking violence as a way to diligent to my eyes peaceful protest to make people feel who would otherwise not participate in acts of contention. that this is this is futile engaging in protest leads to violence chaos and disorder and that's a bad thing and this is certainly how the russian media up are trained probably just by way of leads to legitimize in the on the other hand we are seeing that it's not deterring people and certainly people who will be watching these episodes would be very disturbed and another tactic that the regime has been using in the past is
5:19 am
to penalize and many of these protesters by the way are school age children adolescents university students so there have been in the past retributions in the form of dismissals from university and other harassment of course we know about arrests at sadr beatings but that doesn't seem to be having a deterrent effect perhaps even the opposite perhaps the reached a certain tipping point in how the russian public perceives the stakes that are involved here for 4 months after sudan's president omar bashir was ousted the military join to an opposition coalition have reached a constitutional agreement but the deal is yet to be signed it's expected to happen in the next few days it will lead to the formation of a transitional government to run sudan until elections are held in 2022 the opposition coalition say they will appoint the next interim prime minister.
5:20 am
the cabinet will have no more than 20 ministers the freedom for change alliance will nominate the prime minister he will then be appointed by the sovereign council and the prime minister will then form a cabinet and that cabinet will need to be confirmed by the sovereign council and we spoke with sudanese people in khartoum as they await the signing of the declaration. congratulations to all the sudanese people of the agreement meet the demands of the sudanese people who called for a civilian state alone but i'm only 50 percent happy because the final agreement is not sign yet. ok ok well it is a good step forward people have to be patient. but i have not seen a signed agreement yet but the youth are not just looking for celebrations we want to rebuild the whole state. everything will change will be no corruption it won't be like what we've seen during the past 30 years of the democratic republic of

congo is racing to contain an outbreak of ebola in goma more people have been tested after 4 cases were confirmed in the densely populated city checks have been stepped up along the border with the to stop the spread of the virus 70 dec as more from the kept talking. it's a health workers nightmare a busy border crossing thousands of people in close contact and constantly on the move and you have an army going oh you're going to get this medical worker tells people to wash their hands they're going to know your. health checks and hygiene measures of tightened between the democratic republic of congo and rwanda ever since multiple cases of the abode of virus were discovered here in goma the congolese city of more than 2000000 people. people are washing their hands as a precaution to to the outbreak of disease to tell us it is spreading through their homes that's why they're asking us to wash water mixed with medication. the virus
5:22 am
is paul through body fluids including sweat there is a vaccine that has been used for quite some time the world health organization says it has a very high success rate and you only need one shot but there's a problem. the vaccination is not approved for mass use it's usually given to those exposed to the virus and it's also given to the doctors and health workers as they are handling those cases to protect them from contracting the virus there is still no officially approved vaccine on the market but we're told this one is expected to be officially approved at some stage there is also a lot of confusion around the virus and a lot of suspicion of foreign health workers here in eastern d.r. see. it's a remote region that has been neglected by the government and torn apart by years of conflict. it would have been better if our leaders and those who are concerned would give us more information they have not informed us where we can get this
5:23 am
vaccine so that all of us can go and actually get it. all of us need to be vaccinated. this is the 2nd worst ebola outbreak on record more than a 1800 people have died of the virus in the d.r. c. over the past year but the fact that it is now reached a border city is what's causing the renewed alarm that prompted the government here in rwanda to close its western border for a few hours on thursday as it beefed up its health screening procedures and the problem with this virus is once you identify someone infected by it you then need to trace back all the people they have come into contact with test them vaccinate them and potentially quarantine them it is a highly infectious disease and containing it is a real challenge stephanie decker al-jazeera the galley or shelling close the only functioning airport in libya's capital tripoli for several hours on saturday we think airport has come under a peter attacks and swore khalifa haftar launched an offensive to capture the city
5:24 am
in april no one's claimed responsibility for the attack the u.s. and the taliban are describing the latest round of talks in doha as the most crucial yet senior officials are expecting a peace deal that would lead to the word draw a foreign forces taliban says it will not negotiate with the government until the u.s. agrees to leave. need is at the door hard talks. this latest round of talks is again behind closed doors we have very little information of what is happening inside the meeting room but we do know that both the americans and the taliban have indicated that they were hopeful for a breakthrough now u.s. envoy zalmay khalilzad arrived friday evening in doha and he tweeted that he was hopeful for a peace agreement not the withdrawal agreement he said that the peace agreement would lead to a withdrawal a gradual withdrawal of foreign troops depending on what happens on the ground and
5:25 am
if indeed the u.s. gets all of these counter-terrorism guarantees that it wants from the taliban namely that afghanistan will not be used as a base by armed groups to then carry out a plan planned attacks on foreign soil that al about on their side have also indicated that they were ready to reach this peace agreement they did say that they were waiting to hear from the americans they were hopeful to get the assurances they need on their side now we don't know how long these talks will last but certainly you do have kind of a positive message coming out from both sides of this thing if indeed a peace agreement is is reach then there will be talk about foreign troops withdrawal about 20000 of them hurriedly in afghanistan 14000 being american soldiers the americans have said very clearly that that would be
5:26 am
a gradual withdrawal but i think also more importantly if a peace agreement is indeed reached then it would pave the way for interim afghan talks which are crucial to bring some sort of stability to that country tom balakot is with the doha institute for graduate studies he says there's been a great deal of mistrust between both sides. this round is very much a continuation of the last round which happened at the beginning of july then they reached the point of needing to sort out the timetable for for the withdrawal as you can appreciate the conflict has been going on for 18 years or so there are a great deal of mistrust between all sides not just between them americans and the taliban but also the americans the taliban's and the government in kabul and over the 18 years there's been a great buildup of forces and bases in afghanistan so from a taliban perspective they would like to see an immediate withdrawal and as soon as
5:27 am
possible on the american side of course they would like to undertake an orderly withdrawal which also offers guarantees to the afghan government and the afghan people and the various political viewpoints in afghanistan that it is not going to be done in a rush everyone is still very conscious of what happened in iraq and do not wish to see. a rushed withdrawal from from afghanistan or there's renewed tension in indian administered kashmir the government's cancelled a hindu pilgrimage and ordered all tourists to leave citing security concerns pakistan has rejected india's claims of possible attacks on pilgrims new delhi has deployed $10000.00 extra paramilitary raising fears it is preparing to broaden its control of the disputed region cut here lopez hold a young reports. it's

5:29 am
allowed to happen there is also mistrust of india's government and its intentions skeptics fear deploying more troops could be part of a broader plan to deny channeling kashmir special autonomy status it's an indication ok fine they are concerned about the security of the tourists and the arteries but what about the security of the people and i think what message are they giving to the kashmiris that they don't care about them that they have the absolutely no concern about them concerns include the removal of a section of the constitution that gives employment and land benefits exclusively to residents of the muslim majority state room of the body for days we've heard rumors that article $35.00 a will be revoked and now that the government issued an advisory pilgrims and tourists tensions are even higher people are really worried since the late 1980 s. tens of thousands of people have been killed in the region and the recent deployment of so many troops is causing concern. india insist it's

a way to ensure the safety of pilgrims but many wonder if the troops will remain even after all the visitors are gone. katia llopis of the young al-jazeera a soccer fan is a pakistan security analyst at cato institute she says the indian government wants to send a message of strength when it comes to security and kashmir. i think this is the more the government's. got their intelligence. strong and that there is very serious and any indication of any kind of attack. that have been very serious and so it ought to be happening now but when you think about the more the government and how do you. know of the country as you know is not. based on the. vision that they've been fighting for.

but indian forces over the past 2 decades have engaged in what i would call human rights abuses are out. there and they are very critical. of anyone with. a government that is i and i think this is certainly a threat to. even within that game. and i think the government especially has been. vigilant about this and they've been very strict about this too and they don't. want that to be. still ahead on al-jazeera attends calm in northwest syria where will warring sides take to the conditional cease fire. theory in south korea protesters denounce japan and iraq trade dispute. and later in support zimbabwe's cricketers say they'll play for free

5:35 am
you're watching it is it a reminder of top stories this hour at least 20 people killed in a mass shooting at a shopping center in the u.s. city of el paso texas 21 year old white men been arrested this is the 13th mass shooting in the u.s. this week. some protesters in hong kong have been tear gassed off the vandalizing a police station demonstrations began in june over now shelved plans to allow extraditions to mainland china protesters are now demanding greater political reform. of russia. police have arrested more than $800.00 protesters they were rallying in moscow after the government disqualified a number of candidates from standing in local elections next month. other u.s. defense secretary mark esper says he is in favor of putting into media range missiles in asia his comments come just a day after the u.s.
5:36 am
withdrew from an arms control treaty it had signed with the former u.s.s.r. in the late 1980 s. richard white is a defense and security analyst with wiki strad global consultancy he says the u.s. wants to balance the rise of china in asia but needs to find the right allies. many of the countries in the region are a core are concerned by china's growing strength and newfound assertiveness and they want the u.s. to counter that imbalance china but it's going to be a problem for the us a challenge to finding countries that are willing to host these systems because they would then accept a missile that is actually aimed at china which couldn't tighen eyes the chinese even more so australia new zealand are possible candidates guam is also very likely since it's the us position but ideally the u.s. would want to put these missiles closer to china for develop faster kinds of
5:37 am
missiles the kinds of russians are developing these hypersonic systems but again this is sort of new i mean the u.s. has now the treehouse the option consider these these these possibilities and it's going to work with these allies to figure out what's an acceptable and optimal strategy targets in north korea are covered by multiple possible attack systems so you can use aircraft in japan you can use missiles in japan and korea you could air aircraft carriers the problem is not attacking targets in north korea the problem is you don't want to do that because they're going to then destroy much of south korea and the retaliation so i don't think this is sort of an independent to the north korea situation it's more i think to balance china and give the u.s. more options to manage the rise of china in asia not so much north korea. there's been relative calm in northwest syria on the 2nd day of a conditional cease fire it was brokered during peace talks in kazakstan and
5:38 am
follows weeks of airstrikes in the province of idlib the last remaining rebel held area then a harder reports on the turkey syria border. there is a cautious calm in rebel controlled southern italy and northern hama russian and syrian warplanes have been repeatedly targeting towns like mine are not manned for the past 3 months a cease fire that came into effect on friday night has brought some respect for people living in that corner of northwest syria who have lost so much. money i mean i am a 3rd the more lost after all that happened isn't it too late for a ceasefire people have been displaced killed their homes destroyed but they are still scared to return to their homes. more than 400000 syrians have been displaced at least 800 civilians were killed their names documented by war monitors among the casualties 216 children but the syrian government and its allies failed to
5:39 am
recapture ground probably opposition. always here before with the russians with all their power were not able to make any gains along with the syrian regime they lost a lot of men and they were only able to take 2 or 3 villages and that's why they wanted the ceasefire early on the ground we are stronger i don't want to go to it proved to be a costly battle for the syrian government and its allies who reportedly suffered heavy losses in their ranks. the ceasefire was brokered by the backers of the opposition and the government turkey and russia but it is a conditional truce that puts pressure on turkey to create a demilitarized zone around the province free of weapons and fighters in line with the so-called saatchi memorandums the mainstream rebel factions left their positions in the planned zone last year but the strongest group at the leadership which many in the international community believe is still linked to al qaida
5:40 am
refused it hasn't said if it will comply this time this issue a challenge for both sides what to get to implement the agreement. to didn't. care and couldn't do before so i personally think that there is. tremendous and. that there will be a new escalation of. the syrian opposition believes the government will eventually violate the cease fire and the bombing will resume if not in a few hours then in a few weeks or a few months it lives fate is up to russia and turkey they still want to maintain close relations and as long as there are geopolitical interests are aligned the conditions attached to the ceasefire may be overlooked. because you have to have our police in thailand are looking for 2 suspects thought to be behind a series of bombings in the capital bangkok on friday they released these images of
