4:03 pm
a shopping center in el paso texas after a gunman opened fire in a crowded area. in other parts of the shoppers were held in place while people tried to work out what was happening. right. there at a concert there and then there was what has become a common scene in the united states lines of people being led from the scene of another mass shooting. one on a day that would have been a normal day for someone to leisurely go shopping. turned 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.
4:04 pm
are injured. we as a state unite and support. despite reports of multiple shooters police say only one man is in custody and will face charges that could if he is convicted lead to his execution but needless to say this scene is a riff it $100.00 fortunately because of the nature of the situation the scene will be in play for a long period unfortunately to see school 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.
4:05 pm
this will point in time to a hate crime the f.b.i. will be looking into that with other federal authorities right now we're looking out for to ensure with capital murder charges for this individual he is a 21 year old white man who allegedly posted a racist rant online on an extremist website just an hour or so before the shooting at an emotional democratic presidential hopeful that oh all roark who is from el paso announced he was canceling further campaigning and heading back to his city and so i just ask for everyone strength for a pass on right now. everyone's resolved to make sure that this does not continue to happen in in this country u.s. president donald trump called the shooting an act of cowardice and promised the city and state any help the federal government could extend but democratic presidential candidates including o'rourke linked trump and his rhetoric to the
4:06 pm
shooting senator bernie sanders wrote on twitter we must reject this growing culture of bigotry espoused by trump and his allies the shopping center behind me is now the focus of an intense criminal investigation and as authorities gather the physical evidence they'll also be looking at the suspects activities on line trying to trace the roots of his rage rob reynolds al jazeera el paso. well let's go live to another rock correspondence in the u.s. alan fish is in washington d.c. said almost 30 people we think alan killed in 2 separate attacks within the space of what 1514 hours. one thing you talk about 29 victims and one shooter certainly el paso was shocking people were out on a saturday morning they were going about their normal business they were preparing their children for the upcoming school year they were buying clothes they were
4:07 pm
buying supplies they were out doing their weekly shop getting food in for the week ahead when suddenly a man walked into a wal-mart and started firing and by the time he was done 20 people were dead or dying certainly the hospitals and el paso are still treating those who suffered trauma in the incident late on saturday i know many people across america will be waking up to news of what happened in ohio i certainly did just after midnight their time there was a shooting in a very popular entertainment someone armed with a long gun wearing body armor with carrying a magazine that had the capacity to carry extra bullets walked into the area partly it was heading to a nightclub if the police hadn't got there in time the mayor believes who knows what death toll we could be talking about no but in the end it was 9 people that were shot dead there are 26 injured and of course the police say that they got there within a minute and were able to neutralize the shooter which is police shorthand for
4:08 pm
killing the man who had the gun and had killing on his mind and there are those already making the direct link between the kind of languages being used recently by president trump and what looks very much at this stage to be a possible hate crime certainly carried out in el paso. well the police the f.b.i. are investigating whether or not this is a hate crime the man in el paso who was arrested a 21 year old it is alleged that he posted a screed on an extremist website which was very anti immigrant very violent in torn and that is something that the police are looking into as far as data is concerned no one has any idea at this stage that they're making public about the motive for the shooting although we are told that the suspect is thought to be a white man but it's always in the should incidents of this case better not to leap
4:09 pm
to assumptions and with until it is confirmed by police is this link to what donald trump has been saying all the people who pulled the triggers are the ones that are responsible for mass shooting but certainly the torrent and some of the phrases that he uses remember donald trump was a man who when confronted with nazis chanting slogans on american streets said there were good people on both sides that is for politicians to make that sort of judgment and certainly there are politicians in this country who are making that judgment and have done in the last couple of hours all right thanks for that alan fischer there live in washington d.c. well there's been 13 mass shootings in the united states in this week alone the shooting in ohio with the 251st attack this year that's according to a u.s. based group that monitors gun violence it defines a mass shooting as an incident where 4 or more people are shot or killed 270 people have been killed in such attacks this year despite those figures 219 looks
4:10 pm
to be better than last year that's when 368 people were killed in gun violence well i've been speaking to scott lucas is a professor of american studies at the university of birmingham in the u.k. and he blames donald trump for what happened in el paso. the suspect patrick cruz yes in the apostle shooting used rhetoric a 4 page manifesto which said that he was carrying out the sat because of the invasion of america by emigrants he said in words that echo those of donald trump used recently that those immigrants should go back to their countries i think we need to be honest and say that the man in the white house and other politicians when they carry out an anti migrant can language when they use language which can appear to target those who are of a different color or different religion they don't put the guns in the shooter's hands but they provide the excuses for those guns to be used so it's not enough
4:11 pm
just to simply condemn bigotry there needs to be responsible action by all politicians and if they're not responsible then to be help they need to be called out as accomplices iran's revolutionary guard say they've seized a foreign all time here in the gulf which they accuse us smuggling feel to some arab states and this will be the 3rd season by iran in less than a month think our forces can go live now to our correspondent is in the iranian capital tehran jabari tell us more then about this season oh of another oil tanker . well martin this is a vessel the revolutionary guards say they seized near farci island which is a military island in between iran and saudi arabia they say that they seized this vessel on wednesday when they found out that it was trying to smuggle 700000 liters of fuel they say that this vessel was heading to arab countries they didn't specify
4:12 pm
where it was going but they said that they seized it and it is now sitting in the port city of share along with the 7 crew members who have now been arrested in iran they say that the revolutionary guards carried out this seizure because they are trying to combat smugglers in the gulf and the strait of hormuz this is one of their missions and it is something the revolutionary guards have said that they are able and willing and to carry out that is the security and safety of the waters that surround iran this is yet another example they say that they are capable of patrolling these waters and keeping it safe and it is this is one of the reasons the revolutionary guards have said that any kind of foreign forces presence in the waters of the gulf is not necessary because they are present themselves and they're able to guard these waters and another interesting line to come out of tehran today is news coming from the arabians at least of an interesting move that you made
4:13 pm
a priority by the white house yes we heard from the government spokesperson i leave out the earlier where he said that the foreign minister mohammad javad zarif was in when he was in new york in a mission to the united nations earlier this month and he received an invitation from a senator to visit the white house this was an invitation that course the foreign minister turned down but let's hear some of what else he had to say. in. the u.s. auction on foreign minister zarif is against all diplomatic procedures and is an unprecedented event in the history of diplomacy in that one government keep claiming to be ready for negotiations and then to put sanctions on the foreign minister of that country well isn't it ridiculous he was invited by a senator to have a meeting at the white house then they impose sanctions on him foreign minister zarif is responsible for foreign policy and the diplomatic path should pass through
4:14 pm
him this is. the government spokesperson also stressed that these sanctions that have been placed on the foreign minister are just another example that the americans are not really sincere in their quest to hold any kind of dialogue with the iranians the position here is that the iranian officials will not be engaging in any kind of talks with the american officials until these sanctions that the u.s. government has imposed on iran since withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear agreement are all lifted that is the condition that they have they believe that these sanctions are really not helping the situation of course the foreign minister is tasked with holding any kind of dialogue with the international community so these sanctions are seen as a step in the wrong direction if the u.s. officials believe that by sanctioning mohammad javad zarif they will be able to hold talks with a higher level person they are mistaken because the foreign minister has had unequivocal support from the highest authority in the islamic republic that is the
4:15 pm
supreme leader ayatollah ali how many and the spokesperson today reiterated this position that not only does the foreign minister have the support of the supreme leader but also all the various military entities inside iran including the revolutionary guards have all expressed their support for the foreign minister on all the efforts he's done in trying to bring together this nuclear agreement which the americans have completely disregarded dosage of live in tehran thank you. we've got a lot more to come on this al-jazeera news hour including how democratic republic of congo's neighbors are preparing to tackle the bowler as the virus spreads to a major border city. we're on the road in argentina where mobile apps are helping workers earn a living in a struggling economy. and in sports the english premier league champions manchester city get their 1st chance at silverware this season but find out why their manager
4:16 pm
thinks his team doesn't get the recognition it deserves. the protests in hong kong of move to a luxury shopping area after police used tear gas to clear them out from another part of the city and this is the 4th straight day of demonstrations every marches in both central hong kong and in the outlying suburbs activists are angry about a proposed extradition law and the police response to the protest andrew thomas says more. what's happening here is that head 1st is taking apart this french they're hiding identities behind umbrella's but they're going to use the different sections of this paints lighter as a barricade this is becoming a pattern in hong kong peaceful rallies in parks finish and then people make their
4:17 pm
way to a target it seems on sunday the target is most likely to be beijing central government there is an office here in hong kong and this group are partly those who went to the peaceful rally earlier but they're being joined increasingly by people hiding their identities behind masks carrying gas masks and they're wearing helmets people are expecting yet more confrontation with the police. that are dan's military jointer and the opposition of signed a deal on the constitutional declaration it's an agreement that was reached through mediation 4 months after the long time president omar al bashir was ousted the african union's envoy to sudan says the document outlines the division of power until elections can be held in 3 years prior democracy activists of welcomed the deal saying it's the 1st step with more to follow. the priority during the transitional phase will be transparency and the investigation for all
4:18 pm
the crimes for the sake of justice in order to put on trial the perpetrators who killed our muscles we have to have peace because without peace we can't have democracy based on today's declaration the transitional government will be committed to finding justice for all. dear honorable citizens today we turned a page a very difficult page in our country's history that was full of conflict and fighting we agreed to move forward to build a new state in the transitional phase. right here on set with me is mohammed a correspondent who's reported extensively from sudan and. mohammed i was quite quite struck by the tone of the 1st bit of sound that we just heard from one of the representatives of the protestors of the. civilian coalition and that was the emphasis upon justice do we really believe i mean that must be an integral part of this declaration constitutional declaration absolutely and it's what people have
4:19 pm
been clamoring for during the protests chants of blood for blood we would not accept any compensation from the protests in the square and also throughout the time they've been holding this process of the they were disposed to talking about the past injustices cutting out by the bush era g.m. against people in darfur in the nuba mountains but also recent violence visited upon the protesters by the rapid support forces who have now been brought under the general command very interesting to see muhammad undone duggal himself a man being blamed for some of these crimes having initialed the agreement itself so this was. you know the opposition talking to people like him down there going to saying you will not escape us once we start the transition we will pursue people like you right and the cynics and the skeptics will will not believe that this military. will be prepared to subject themselves to full accountability
4:20 pm
and justice however what are the other elements of this constitutional declaration because of course it's not a new constitution is it. right drafting a new constitution is part of the limits of the transition or 40 but that will be done towards the end of the transition you know there has to be the collection of views from the people of sudan and there has to be unanimity when it comes to the. having a document that is going to be the foundation for the news done and the crowds it's done that the people want but there's also the issue of creation of opportunities for the young people of sudan who've been missing out on opportunities in most of the past 30 years so it's a mix of both you know trying to create the necessary and bottom and for elections once we get there after 3 years and a few months and also ensuring that the transition period is also
4:21 pm
a period where people see some real change in their lives and in their daily so it might be a good opportunity for us to reflect on the achievements of this is in these people it was december wasn't it last year when we 1st started to see those protests on the streets and to see now today well on their way it would appear to a democratically elected government yes in the field people expected things to come this far about point when the military council this passed the protesters from that square are said the military headquarters and at one point people had lost hope after they declared that the elections would be held in my months people unfold the demands collated the public and taken the the self-determination of the country into their hands but now it looks like they have finally reinvented themselves and come to a place where they can start building a new sudan but i made it
4:22 pm
a thank you very much. now to syria where there's been a relative calm in the northwest on the 3rd day of a conditional cease fire the truce that was brokered in peace talks in kazakhstan and it follows weeks of airstrikes and bloodshed in provincetown which is the last remaining rebel held area then a hotter reports now from gaza and tap on the turkey syria border. a cease fire and it is holding but it remains fragile the syrian government conditioned the truce to the rebels retreating 20 kilometers from the front lines in compliance with last year's such a deal. russia and turkey who support opposing sides in the war have reaffirmed their commitment to the deal that involves creating a demilitarized zone around the rebel controlled province but the most powerful rebel group. says it won't comply its leader mohamed ogle ani said what the regime could not take militarily or by force they will not get through peaceful
4:23 pm
means or through negotiations and politics we will never with draw from the zone we will not change our position neither at the request of our friends or our enemies turkey was supposed to create the 20 kilometer deep zone last october at the time the leadership which is considered a terrorist organization by the international committee also refused to comply russia publicly scolded and blamed turkey criticism it rejected turkish officials believe an all out offensive against the leadership would only risk civilian lives . turkey naturalized one of the 50 terrorist group's leaders inside the area and also sharing all kinds of intelligence information together with the russia so far i know that department of defense off turkey and the chair for the intelligence services of the dorcy had made frequent visits to russia in order to keep sharing information with the russian offer shows what's going on inside. that
4:24 pm
clearly is not enough for russia which is demanding turkey and the mainstream opposition fighters that is a sham and other so-called radical groups it has even offered to partner with them . that leadership or h.t.s. did turn its guns on syrian mainstream rebel factions forcing them to leave it live in january but when the syrian government launched an offensive in april those factions returned to the front lines in the province and allied with h.t.s. and what they called a battle of survival they prevented the government and its allies from taking ground but there were heavy civilian losses. turning their guns on each other now would only weaken their position the opposition says it won't retreat without written guarantees from russia it seems the terms of it live cease fire are still being negotiated jennifer there doesn't have. the former
4:25 pm
deputy of cambodia's camaron rouge leader paul part has died at the age of 93 no one cheer was serving a life sentence for genocide in crimes against humanity a un backed court convicted him last year for his role in mass killings that wiped out a quarter of the cambodian population almost 2000000 people were killed in the 1970 s. when the camero targeted minority groups and anyone with ties to the previous government . at least $31.00 people are dead after 3 ferries capsized in the philippines police say bad weather caused the boats to overturn in waters between eloi low city and groom are silent at least 6 people are still missing 55 others were rescued. indonesia's capital and surrounding towns have been hit by a major power cut the energy supplies says the outages g to a problem at a number of power stations passengers on
4:26 pm
a train in jakarta for instance they were left stranded and had to wait for help it's unclear how much of an impact it's had on the city with more than 10000000 people. pakistan has expressed serious concern about india's decision to send thousands of additional troops to india that minister of kashmir india says the move is to stop attacks by side says it believes pakistan supports its order to hindus attending an annual pilgrimage and tourists to leave the area but praise separatist politicians are accusing the indian government of preparing to broaden its control come out has the latest from the pakistani capital islamabad. although there are no fresh reports of a forder escalation along the line of control that separates aboard indian and pakistani administered kashmir the pakistani military spokesman had accused india of using cluster munitions they were fired by indian artillery along the watched
4:27 pm
range of the line of control and reached 2 people including a 40 year old boy 11 more wounded the foreign office all 3 issued a statement rejecting the indian claims august on responsibility for doing it while asians and hording. now pakistan saying that this is a breach of international conventions and that the huge of cluster munitions are what they're brilliant for britain. for. remain also endorsed and encouraged by the international committee of the red cross now pakistan saying that this is indeed a grave escalation and warns the international community to take notice of this and all thoughts. the pakistani opposition party is warning that india is playing with fire the leader of the opposition shahbaz sharif has called for an end camera session of parliament to get the ongoing situation in freshmen including
4:28 pm
a fresh deployment for their troops entered that rally august on a process concerned that there may be another explanation along the line of control added time when the us president had offered busy mediation and the on the other hand of course had rejected any all 4 of that mediation thing that it is a bilateral issue that has to be thought of between the 2 nuclear neighbors. but i've been speaking to challenge the professor and dean at the jindal school of international affairs and he had gave us more on the indian perspective so there is a lot of the how destructive media and lot of a fundamentalist groups there are itching to attack non muslims so i think there is a problem here and we're trying to resolve and at the same time i must say that india does have a plan as you mentioned i think they want to integrate it as simply a question of saline to india because kashmir has had a special status or an autonomy within india long time under the indian
4:29 pm
constitution under the new newly reinvigorated leadership of prime minister narendra modi after the elections they are looking at you know taking preemptive measures to sideline the separatists and the secessionists and to use security as well as other development means to train you know integrate kashmir better so i think that's the long term plan what you are seeing now at the border what you're hearing from the corresponding some about the day are you know preparing for war all beasts in obesity are tricks and i think what didn't really happen in the long run you know the cleaner assimilation of course we're into india which is i think just a moody's long term goal. the weather now his efforts and everything then you're saying in the sub continent yeah that's right particularly in sea we're into mum by it's the monsoon season of course employee of a scene a loss of rain july was a pretty wet month and orcus is looking much the same you can see this huge swathe of cloud right up the west coast of india and by really has been in the mix

4:33 pm
all right time for a 2nd look at the top stories here in the hour jazeera news out to mass shootings are taking place within hours of each other in the united states the 1st at a shopping center in our paso texas where a suspected gunman killed at least 20 people and in dayton ohio police say 10 people including the gunman were killed iran's revolutionary guard say they've seized another foreign oil tanker in the strait of hormuz accusing it of smuggling fuel to arab states 7 crew members have been arrested in the ships being taken to the polls at both share. sudan's military and the opposition have signed a deal on a constitutional declaration the african union's envoy to sudan says the document outlines the division of power until elections can be held in 3 years. the 8th round of u.s. taliban peace talks is currently taking place here in doha senior officials said
4:34 pm
a peace agreement could be expected between the warring sides in the coming weeks and that would enable foreign forces to withdraw the taliban the said it won't talk to the afghan government about the future of the country until the u.s. agrees to withdraw its troops we can speak now to michael semple who's visiting researcher at queen's university belfast and a former negotiator with the taliban and he's joining us live now from the irish capital dublin michael so this expectational then of an agreement on a withdrawal of foreign forces could be before august the 30th or something as soon as that do you get the sense that there is a rush on this deal there is now tremendous pressure on both negotiating teams to reach agreement on the issue of u.s. troops it's a very important stage in the in the peace process it will not bring peace in afghanistan but it will allow them to move forward right i'm
4:35 pm
not entirely sure the next stage which can't be negotiations amongst afghans very successful sorry michael the lines the lines dropping in and out just stick with you for a bit longer. ok you say you said that if there is an agreement between the taliban then the united states for the u.s. forces to withdraw all foreign forces i should say to withdraw all of the taliban be giving in exchange they are giving a promise that in areas they control they will not allow foreign terrorists to act against the u.s. or overseas targets and they are agreeing to move forward to the political negotiations undergo seasons about a cease fire and those negotiations then would have to take place with the afghan government no. well they've come up with a classic 5 inch whereby
4:36 pm
a delegation will come from kabul with which will include both authorized members of the afghan government opposition and civil society figures at the people in kabul considered a sort of government negotiation the taliban will say we're not really talking to the government or the government is only one small part of an overall arc on that occasion so that's sorted out there is a there's a formula that works for both sides to allow those negotiations to go ahead if they can get that 1st agreement with the us right but it seems very much as though. that the people of afghanistan cannot look forward to peace a cease fire at least in the near future. there is a route forward and we know that there is a huge demand from the population and frankly from fighters on both sides but like you know when anyone tries to bring an end to a conference which has gone on for so long it's difficult there are hurdles at every stage at least there is now
4:37 pm
a way forward and we have to see how that to how it plays out in coming days michael semple thank you very much thank you. now to the outbreak in the democratic republic of congo doctors without borders are saying that almost 2 thirds of those who've been infected have died one in 3 patients are under the age of 18 and now other countries are trying to stop the disease from reaching their borders mozambique for instance which is 2000 kilometers away is setting up disease checkpoints along its border with malawi rwanda which is a neighboring country shut its border briefly with d.l.c. on thursday after 4 patients were discovered in the major transport india see. that's where they tested positive for this disease 12 other people are being tested for possible infection we can go live to our correspondent stephanie decker who is in the rwandan capital kigali and as we've already sort of inferred
4:38 pm
goma is me and the major. hub of the city for this part of africa central africa a lot of cheering you're hearing it across borders what israel wonder doing oh i'm afraid we can't we can't talk to stephanie decker right now but let's hear a report anyway. it's a health workers nightmare a busy border crossing thousands of people in close contact and constantly on the move and 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 they tell us it is spreading through their homes that's why they're asking us to wash water mixed with medication. the
4:39 pm
virus 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. 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
4:40 pm
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 renewed alarm. probably going to try steph again stephanie decker who is in the rwandan capital and stephanie i was just looked at your report centering around goma which as we said is a a major hub with a lot of to ing and fro ing over the border between deal c. and rwanda what are the rwandans doing to to make sure that it doesn't get into their country. well they've tightened the health checks at the border which means making everyone wash their hands screening for an elevated temperature because that is one of the 1st symptoms of the virus is a high fever but of course it's
4:41 pm
a challenge i'm having said that there's never been a case of a burglar in rwanda but they've also been training their medical profession professionals they vaccinated them and they're holding drills in hospitals throughout you know not just the border areas but also here in the capital the challenge with containing the virus martine is exactly the fact that you have to trace back who ever the patient has come into contact with and the eastern part of the d r c is remote it's an area that's been neglected for years by its own government it's an area that has been through it with fighting between militias it is very very difficult to do that so this is why you have agencies and government officials in the d r c being very frank saying that this is a massive challenge that they're only really identifying 50 percent of potential patients and that this could last for 2 to 3 years 70 to live in kigali thank you. opposition groups in russia say more than 800 protesters have been arrested after calling for free elections in moscow the police moved in to contain
4:42 pm
