9:05 pm
posted a racist anti immigrant anti hispanic screed to an extremist web site just hours before the shooting one democratic presidential candidate back to ork who comes from el paso says the president bears the responsibility for that shooting the president's language his rhetoric has produced the kinds of hate crimes that we saw you know passed yesterday but we've been seeing across this country they've been on the rise for each one of the last 3 years so we cannot act as though this were just some kind of natural disaster or a matter of course for this country or the new normal for the united states there is a very real cost to this and president trump is part of that but he exists in a racist environ. that is being fueled by by fox news by those who on the internet traffic in these conspiracy theories the open hatred and intolerance that has found a home in people like the shooter and what he did yesterday but the president's
9:06 pm
chief of staff dismissed that idea i don't think it's fair to try to lay this at the feet of the president i think there are people in this country this morning thinking the president was was was happy by this that's a sad sad state of this nation he's angry he's upset he wants it to stop. i don't think it's at all fair to sit here and say that that he doesn't he doesn't think that white nationalism is bad for the nation dayton and el paso are no different. parts of the list of places in america where they have suffered experienced lived through mass shootings and with the presidential election 15 months away changing america's gun laws may become part of the bigger conversation. on what will this week we can mean for the debates around gun control in the u.s. will it affect any change. well there are those who would say that if nothing happened after the shooting at sandy hook elementary school when more than 20 children were killed then nothing is going to change in america certainly we've had
9:07 pm
sherrod brown who is the democratic senator from ohio calling for the senate to return from its summer recess to debate but grown check laws but it's unlikely that the republicans and the republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell will bring a vote to the floor even though a bill outlining just that has passed the democratically controlled senate we are seeing republicans on the sunday talk shows here in the united states talking about how there needs to be action over video games rather than the real violence that we're seeing and have seen over the last 24 hours on the streets of the united states and 2019 those who want to see change well they believe there may be a glimmer of hope and that is the presidential election. in just 15 months time in 2020 our number of democratic candidates are talking about how there has to be a change donald trump himself has talked about in the past how there needs to be
9:08 pm
a change but is he ready to move away from his base to try in court people who want to see change interestingly enough the majority of people in the united states want to see different gun laws at the very least they would like to see background checks of those who go to buy a weapon but those closest to the president say he cannot be blamed for what has happened they have been mattia things for many many years in the united states and that much is true and they say that those responsible for the most shootings are those that walk through the streets of dayton ohio and el paso in texas pulling the trigger on their weapons and killing people that they came across. on official reporting live from washington out of many thanks the secu live to el paso i'll just soon as rob reynolds is there rob what's the latest on the investigation into that shooting. well relevant to your discussion with allan just now adrian the rifle that 21 year old patrick brucia is
9:09 pm
allegedly used to carry out the shooting of 20 people in the wounding. of more than 2 dozen more was purchased legally that's according to the chief of police of el paso greg allen and chief allen also noted that in the state of texas there is a law that permits open carrying of rifles and other types of weapons so that it's possibly and i stress possibly one reason why as patrick perseus stormed into or strolled really nonchalantly as eyewitnesses say toward the mall in the wal-mart shopping center with his weapon. described as an a k 47 type semiautomatic weapon and no one really raised much of an alarm because again it's legal now the other main development here today is that
9:10 pm
federal authorities are considering taking charges taking measures against bruce is that could result in the death penalty here's u.s. attorney john basher we are also treating this as a domestic terrorist case as a statutory definition of domestic terrorism 18 u.s.c. 2331 this means that it appears to be designed to intimidate the civilian population to say the least we're treating it as a domestic terrorism case and we're going to do what we do the terrorists in this country which is deliver swift and certain justice. of course many people in the united states have questioned why domestic terrorism charges are rarely brought against right wing extremists who commit violent acts whereas they are routinely brought against people who advocate the ideologies of groups like al qaida or the islamic state but be that as it may patrick cruciatus is in custody
9:11 pm
he's been formally charged the 21 year old also faces charges of capital murder in the state of texas and those charges could result either in life imprisonment without the possibility of parole or the death penalty adrian. reporting live from el paso robin a thanks to a case president threats of top of the one says that he's sending troops into an area controlled by kurdish y p g 5 says in northern syria the y.p. g. has been an important u.s. ally in the battle against eisel but turkey sees it as a terrorist group some good. shit about it is they do to me the opposition leader warned us against entering afrin and we did then we entered jet up to the us and then i'll bump city and now we will enter the east you free. yes we have talked to russia and the united states because we cannot remain silent with the continuation
9:12 pm
of the provocative strikes that come from that area we have been patient but our patience has limits from of zeros in a hole to who's in gaziantep. turkey is growing impatient to believes that there is a national security threat along its borders and it wants to deal with that threat president or the guns statement is just another it's just another really in a series of threats being made by turkish officials that they will carry out a cross border operation in the east of the euphrates area an area under the control of the syrian armed group the white p.g. a group turkey considers a terrorist organization and and an affiliate of the outlawed kurdistan workers' party the p.k. case so for turkey it is a national security threat and it has carried out cross border operations in syria over the past 2 years but on both occasions the area of operations was under this fear of influence of russia turkey and russia cooperate in syria but east of the
9:13 pm
euphrates is an area under the control of the united states which is allied with the white p.g. so this this issue really is testing and already frail relationship between nato allies turkey and the united states they've had meetings over the past few months turkey accusing the united states of stalling a new delegation is arriving in ankara for further talks on monday but whether or not they can find common ground it's hard to see because deep differences remain over a planned safe zone they're discussing a plan safe zone turkey's insisting it's 20 kilometers deep in turkey can insist that they it controls the zone which is something the united states has so far not except that iran's revolutionary guard say they've seized an iraqi oil tanker in the gulf which they accuse of smuggling fuel to quote some arab states this would be the 3rd season by iran in less than a month in gulf force is still such a binary reports now from turkey. the revolutionary guards media relations
9:14 pm
department have released a statement saying that they have seized a vessel that they've accused of trying to smuggle 700000 liters of fuel this seizure apparently took place near the island of farsi island which is in between iran and saudi arabia and it apparently happened on wednesday the revolutionary guards have said that they seized this vessel and the 7 crew members on board and this vessel is currently now at the port city of shared the 7 people they have been arrested in iran and their national police have not been revealed yet this is another example of how the revolutionary guard have exerted their power and strength and willingness to carry out the security and safety of the waterways around iran this is the 3rd vessel that they have seized in the past month earlier on sunday the government spokesperson ali rabbi spoke about the latest sanctions on the mohammad javad zarif that have been imposed by the u.s.
9:15 pm
government and the invitation that was extended to the foreign minister while he was visiting new york at the united nations earlier this month let's hear what he had to say in. the u.s. action on foreign minister zarif is against all diplomatic procedures and is an unprecedented event in the history of diplomacy that one government keep claiming to be ready for negotiations and then to put sanctions on a foreign minister of that country well isn't that ridiculous he was invited by a senator to have a meeting at the white house then they imposed sanctions on him foreign minister zarif is responsible for foreign policy and the diplomatic path should pass through him. the feeling here is that the sanctions that have been imposed on the foreign minister are another example of how the united states doesn't really understand the power structure in iran the c excuse that was given for the sanction was that the foreign minister is not a person they want to negotiate with and they were looking for someone higher up now the officials here have said that if they think the u.s.
9:16 pm
government is going to negotiate with anybody else other than the foreign minister who is tasked with hold the negotiations with western powers they're very much mistaken the position here is that the foreign minister is not going to hold any kind of talks with u.s. officials until the united states lifts its sanctions on iran which they've imposed since they withdrew from the nuclear deal last year the ukrainians say that the u.s. government has waged economic terrorism on iran and until they seize this behavior they will be no discussions how between the 2 countries still focus is a lecturer at the university of applied sciences in turkey he says the both iranians and forwardness have been smuggling oil in the region for decades. as a matter of fact and i'll ever since oil was found in discovered in iran. the governments before and after the revolution they have been subsidizing fuel prices
9:17 pm
heavily because the people believe that now they have the largest or 2nd largest oil reserves in the war so they shouldn't be paying much for fuel so iranians are not paying even 110th that's 10 percent of real prices and the persian gulf any other open market for each leader a fuel that is encouraged in all smuggling and it has made it a very lucrative illegal business activity and there are been thousands of iranian and foreign arabs who have been smuggling huge cargoes in order to make a fortune and after decades of fighting by the law enforcement police coast guard and others they called i.r.g.c. nabi for help in especially considering that he cargoes like 1000000 liters or dis one that they just seized today this 700000 will be their cargo that was being
9:18 pm
smuggled out of iran and seized in the iranian water near the far sea island in the persian gulf it was heading south work toward some arab states on the southern rooms of the persian gulf we are not sure exactly if it was headed to the scent or to some business activity is the legal business people or else this is the news out from al-jazeera still to come on the program as a bonus spreads to a border city in the democratic republic of congo but look at how other countries are preparing to tackle the disease a change of tactics by protesters in hong kong as they try to keep police guessing . and in schools high flying the best of the action from the world where the championship coming up a little later with these. it turned out to the outbreak in the democratic republic of congo and doctors without
9:19 pm
borders says that nearly 2 thirds of those who've been infected have died one in 3 patients is under the age of 18 now other countries are preparing to prevent the disease reaching that border which is 2000 kilometers away is setting up disease checkpoints along its border with malawi rwanda briefly shut its border with the sea on thursday after 4 patients in the eastern congolese city of goma tested positive for the disease 12 others are being tested for possible infection al-jazeera stephanie decker reports now from rwanda's capital kigali. it's a health workers nightmare a busy border crossing thousands of people in close contact and constantly on the move further than only going to get this medical worker tells people to wash their hands on the. health checks and hygiene measures of titan between the democratic republic of congo and rwanda ever since multiple cases of the abode of virus were
9:20 pm
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 the front that's why they are going to wash water mixed with medication. the virus is paul through budget the 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. but 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. fishley 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.
9:21 pm
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 vaccine so that all of us can go and actually get it. all of us need to be vaccinated this is the 2nd worst 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 on the problem with this virus is once you identify someone infected by it do they need to trace back all the people they have come into contact with test them vaccinate them and potentially it is a highly infectious disease and containing it is
9:22 pm
a real talent stephanie decker al-jazeera. is a serious specializing in infectious diseases with the johns hopkins center for health security joins us now via skype from pittsburgh good to have you with us dr what is this break in the proving so difficult to contain. one of the things we know about ebola outbreaks is that there are simple methods that can usually stop them but it only works when the community is engaged and they're actually receptive to that idea and you saw this in the west african outbreak in 2014 is that a community isn't going to be receptive to these public health interventions you can really have an outbreak spiral out of control and out what we've seen in the d.r. c. and a couple to that we have armed violence there as well which is made and probably the most challenging ebola outbreak in record in history if this outbreak is allowed to continue to focus on a month he is even what impact upon the people of the sea could it have.
9:23 pm
what the real fear would be is that ebola would become what's called in demick in that area meeting it becomes a normal infectious disease that they deal with on a day to day basis and that would be a disaster if we let that happen to the d.r. see ebola has never done that in any other place we've been able to stamp out these outbreaks but it would be devastating in terms of the economy in terms of the isolation that would happen to that country and the stigma that would happen we've already seen a border slowdown in rwanda we've already seen saudi arabia failing to issue a visitor's visas to people going to the heart from the d r c that would only get worse if this isn't controlled we heard a man expressing frustration that he hadn't yet been offered the vaccine in our report a few moments ago that there is a vaccine i was reading today that there is another one as well which is as yet untested but the signs are that it is affective as the vaccine that is currently in use why isn't there a widespread vaccination program against a boner. well right now you have to remember that this ebola vaccine is
9:24 pm
experimental and we don't have a whole lot of it there are stockpiles of it and we're using what's called a ringback the nation strategy when we can which means vaccinating the contacts of people down were in that have ebola trying to really use this vaccine in the most strategic manner to stop the outbreak but it actually hasn't worked so there are some some calls to really start vaccinating in a more blanket action if we can in the fact that we've got a 2nd vaccine now going into clinical trials is all good news these are tools we didn't have even 5 years ago against ebola so that makes us a little bit more optimistic but we have to use this acting in the most effective manner and we also have to do the normal public health activities of finding cases and isolating them and getting people to stop this now brace so what is the magic bullet here if there is one is it the vaccine is it the public health initiative is it getting the people on board so that they are aware and they learn to trust the health care specialists who are there to try to prevent the spread of the disease
9:25 pm
there isn't one single magic bullet but if there was one thing that's lacking in this outbreak it is community and receptiveness of the population to health care workers there that are trying to save their lives and stop this outbreak and what we've seen is unprecedented violence hospitals being bombed doctors being killed that can't that's not going to do anything but allow this virus to continue to spread so there has to be some control of this violence there and some receptivity by the population to any kind of intervention to work towards a really good to talk to many thanks indeed for being with us. and on the other thank you hong kong government is warning that illegal protests a pushing the territories what it's calling an extremely dangerous edge hundreds of people of blocks major roads offer a last peaceful protest sonia and the day activists are angry over a proposed extradition and the police response to the protests on syria's andrew thomas is that. sunday night in one of the most

9:36 pm
sort of websites become a more more. almost almost a challenge to get to and to be found and yeah i want to ask you one more question about the prevalence of online shooting games that we've seen now sometimes you know you look across at that kids using using their phones and they're playing these and assassin games these hitman games does the overall acceptance now of these online shooting games normalize. killing with guns. edgin sally the this is a body of evidence to say that the answer to your question is yes. because those. gaming platforms they provide a route for young people directly to those sort of websites where they can have free discussions about all sorts of things and this is how they are being
