suffering a stroke in two thousand and thirteen. the mosque massacres in new zealand and australian man is charged in what has become the deadliest terror attack to ever take place in the country police say with those small camera attached on his head connection to facebook and a semiautomatic rifle in his hand he had all the tools he needed to kill and ensure that he have a live audience watch i'm. this is the day. what i'm telling you is that this is trojan horse tidy ology this was a terrorist attack on innocent men women and children that it really targeted to close the faith they belong to. now actually to condemn these ultra nationalist spreading we call upon all political leaders to call this attack on
innocent civilians an act of terrorism we feel the rituals all fail and we feel the rituals of sorrow of our brothers and sisters in christ church these are fascists and we have to recognise. coming up tonight to breaks it means we've heard that slogan many times but after the events in the british parliament this week breaks it may have a different me. i thought. it was just a mess i think the governments have a strategy and the strategy is to do nothing to achieve that. to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and around the world welcome we begin the day with the darkest hours for new zealand that is how the country's prime minister declared describe the massacres which left dozens of people dead on friday police say at least one
man was involved they say he was an australian who allegedly entered a mosque in the city of christ church during friday prayers with a gun and began shooting the same nightmare happened twice at another mosque in the city tonight the investigation is in full throttle at the same time new zealand's leaders are reaching out to the victims their friends and families and a damaged commute. with a form of grief and anger that we have not experienced before we are seeking answers we can to give that to give says as quickly as we can and as i said in my opening statements if there was any suggestion that these individuals should have been known to us we are looking into that as we speak out to she was to keep everyone who is in new zealand of course new zealand harm sayf there has not occurred here is some questions must be ounces. well we understand that the perpetrator in christ church was motivated by right wing extremism to talk about
that joined here at the big table by rick no i was with the washington post you write about security issues as well as foreign affairs and you also reported from new zealand for a while i understand that's correct i spent one month there and well just every so what do we know. as it stands right now what do we know about the suspect or suspects and the motivation what has been an extreme focus on one suspect and that is the man who had a camera on his head while he entered at least one mosque and then shot dozens of people there might be two more suspects whose identity hasn't really been mentioned or clarified yet but what we do know about this one suspect who was you know who was filmed during this attack is that he is from australia he moved apparently to new zealand to prepare for an attack and then committed in new zealand we also
heard a lot today about a manifesto that he wrote what do we know about that and also help seriously can we take this manifesto well we should take this manifesto differently with a grain of salt and be very careful about how to interpret that because it piers like there are certain references in there that are supposed to mislead media outlets or investigators to deliberately cause tensions but the manifesto is still is quite relevant and interesting because it does provide sort of an indication into his very globalized world view he had and sort of the countries that were on his mind not so much just really where he was apparently from and not so much new zealand either but countries like france countries like the united states but he had come here to europe and as i understand it things that he saw in for. and sweeten he said were reasons that i guess radicalized him what do we know about
that well he mentioned one of the victims of the twenty seventeen attack in stockholm that was apparently that name was written on one of the weapons used during this attack so apparently that attack was a striking moment for him that may explain how he radicalized he also in his manifesto describes. incidents in friends and being confronted with ideologies there that may explain why he came to those leaves but we do understand that those aren't the only countries he traveled to or it's sort of unclear where he went he said there's so many so many questions that are not answered this evening what will we are hearing that what we're seeing is this man who is a white supremacist is actually using the same arguments the same methods of hate that you would find from al qaida for example and that i heard earlier this evening that almost like a scene b.o.c.
is developing between these two extremes to actually try to kill each other. would you agree with that and what can world leaders do then to mitigate against that is really interesting question and when you look at the islamic state propaganda from a few years you know you'll find a lot of references about how they want to create a backlash from those right wing groups white right wing extremist groups essentially provoke what would happened on friday in christchurch and and then you look at what he's describing in his manifesto or what we think is his manifesto where he essentially takes the same view but just sort of you know pretends it's his invention or he came up with that that is quite striking and really witnessing a cycle of violence here that is really hard to break when you have politicians that. very much playing to dead not not directly by not saying all right this is
great this is ok but boy. by saying muslims are a problem refugees are problem and that's that's the sort of sentiment that that is really a problem and to spread that sentiment social media is perfect for doing that right and we saw today this one suspect allegedly had a go pro camera on his head and wanted to show the world he knew that he could possibly have a life global audience watching if that is the case then are these social media platforms do you think are they being held to account for their power and their responsibility also in these acts of terrorism well it is difficult i mean you tube and facebook and other platforms have invested into technology to try and sponsor such continent to take it down but also they have redesigns you know they have to criticize but from their perspective they have to doing steps they have taken steps to to take there was documents were videos down it is frankly really hard to take
them down in certain cases today for instance you saw people uploading them in a crop version or deliberately as a photo that you wouldn't be able to have a machine really recognize it and that does make it hard but certainly there is a point here that those social networks the platforms aren't doing enough you know rick and you know what i think with the washington post we appreciate your insights tonight great thank you thanks so much well the terrorist attacks on mosques in new zealand bring to mind martin luther king jr's response to white supremacist murders on a house of worship back in one nine hundred sixty three when he declared that the slaughtered did not die in vain and that the victims had something to tell us in their deaths and what about those who experienced events in christ church let's hear now from mohan he was inside the mosque when the shooting started he spoke via skype shortly after reaching safety. well i'm really speechless and i can recall to go again on
that area because it's not happened just one most there's a mosque in the area so it was like fifteen minutes distance in between the mosque and it happens to that mostly as well i'm sorries scared like you know i knew that the you know it's maybe one of the safest place to leave to leave didn't but now i don't know what will happen so he was he wants to know who. you were against i don't know what the people who are people in there or on the street. on the people of those who are inside sort of. we know that the gunman lined street the footage of the massacre on facebook why once again drawing attention to how social media can be exploited by terrorists i'm joined you know the big table by didn't use digital reporter i'm sure it's good to see you again so this is this is an explosive topic today because of what has happened with facebook this isn't the
first time that facebook live has been implicated in some type of criminal or terrorist using that platform to broadcast a violent crime why hasn't the company taken more radical action to stop it while facebook already has. yet to tackle this and uses a mixture of artificial intelligence and some content what arranges to actually identify and take down violent content but the problem with that with today's and didn't was that it was a life stream and today's content monitoring algorithm is just smart enough to actually automatically recognize violence as it happens in the lifestream so as a human would have had to have seen that and reacted in the end like an algorithm can't artificial intelligence can't see that and recognize it as quickly it's likely it needs something it needs a reference to. actually you like it can actually recognize ok it's violence but
a full. body conscious stuff everything that's going on i'm because like it can happen and a movie it can happen and like in a movie trailer and late yes i know that i know that facebook and youtube both say that they took down the video quickly but what does quickly mean be because i know before we went on the air tonight it's still possible to see this video if you search enough on the internet yeah. it actually has taken out like it actually has taken hours for facebook to actually take this to take the videos down and the problem with that is that it was a life stream video and so the users were actually notified about this on another website on another social media site so they were prepared and so when the live stream actually happened so they recorded it and spread it and so after that original video was taken down. the video got real again and again
facebook on twitter on you tube i mean are we seeing here that this is probably the ultimate. for a terrorist knowing that once you line stream something once it's up there and someone has recorded it for example or shared it it's on it's perfectly impossible then to stop it from being seen by others right yet but we're hearing that from the social media platforms is that type of honesty being given to the public or are we hearing more talk about artificial intelligence and the promise of algorithms you know. of course there are. artificial intelligence like taking like working on this but like as i've said it is pretty much impossible for them to actually take off every kind of content. and so. and actually in this case you. we're actually able to move content across platforms just mohnish that platform can react
yeah yeah and then the platforms can react maybe even more humans need to be a part of the equation they are wondering leave as always thank you. well it has been a strange week for anyone reporting on britain's struggle with itself to leave the european union that process known as breck's it and as we were pondering today how to best illustrate the political drama and desperation of this week the artist salvador dali came to mind but he must have seen the future mr dali his painting take a look persistence of memory captures the state of bricks it tonight a surreal desert landscape where time itself is warped a world in which strange and surreal replace normal and authentic and if you look closely the woman in the painting she even looks like a caricature of bridge prime minister to resign me. in two weeks the u.k.
is scheduled believe it or not to leave the european union and almost three years since brights it was given the green light by voters parliaments and the government see nothing but read there is no plan for how delete this week m.p.'s again rejected to resubmit its plan and in desperation agreed to ask the european union for a three month delay to breaks it but here is where surreal becomes downright strange next week parliament may vote a third time on to resubmit his plan a third time on a plan rejected twice already by unprecedented margins well here is a synopsis of what happened this week watch it because it may have been the rehearsal for next week so the bodies have ate the eyes of it so the no use of it the no use kind of it so the eyesight it no no no no that's wrong no she can meet it we don't we. we live in it for you you could leave with the deal which this
government is the case isn't it cost you yes no no no no. we could leave with the deal we have to give the subject to a second referendum no no no no but that this risk no threats or. you just look to see is gone out that way because democracy doesn't this country is just don't think we definitely need telling but we get we take us in front of how the rest of europe i mean she no longer has the ability to lead this is a rottenness government in the face of a huge national crisis can the prime minister tell us exactly what the plan is now thousands today provides a clear majority against leaving the house a deal however i repeat which i have said this. was. a. long time to get.
days subsequent. long time to go you don't know whether to cry or to laugh and you don't know if you should feel guilty doing either but the talk about break stands tonight i drove by the brakes and political blogger john worth a familiar face to our viewers i mean you know what happened this week how would you describe what we saw in parliament this week we saw poem and follow unity starting to eliminate some options just a little bit so to resume a steal is almost off the table no deal is now almost off the table and delaying breaks it is going up in terms of its chances of being approved so i think that's the conclusion that we can draw from this week. as your introduction said it is quite an unprecedented situation on tuesday this week three's may's deal was rejected for the second time by the fourth biggest number of votes in british
parliamentary history having been rejected by the biggest number. back in january and still she thinks it's going to work again next week which is to think is going to work in getting sweet used to resume a stubborn because she has no other option because essentially to accept the price that we're not working or to accept a delay or to accept any other option would be an incredible to feel like. viewers something how can she force a vote next week on her plan a third time when it's already been rejected twice that that doesn't seem to make sense that defies logic but you have to bear in mind that the british parliament. has very flexible procedures so therefore it's within her power we think although there is a technicality that might be used by the speaker to stop it but we think it's there within her power in order to manage bring the deal that the speaker maybe could say this speak you could say no but if he did that he would really love britain with a constitutional crisis so chances are he's not going to do that we have to
remember is you've got to get to two reason mase motivation he listens to reason and she says i have understood what the people want i'm going to do that i'm going to see it through and she believes that deeply in a heartfelt so she thinks she's right the people were right in two thousand and sixteen but the members of parliament are wrong when do you believe that she believes she knows what the people want she thinks she knows about now if you want to even look in opinion polls she doesn't know that public opinion has been changing there is there have been solid majorities for remaining in opinion polls over the last twelve months and if you look at the details the two reason they steal the deal is on the table that's actually dislike to me. more than of the bricks varian's so this very idea that theresa may somehow hisself symbolizes the views of the british population is strictly speaking not true and also the birth
arindam almost three years ago past fifty two percent of the vote we're talking we're not talking about a huge margin the prime minister she really speaks about the forty eight percent who wanted to remain in isn't there a huge democracy deficit in the u.k. parliament because those forty percent seem to just have no vote we see that these although. there are two components to that question the first is to resume a herself as pursued a strategy to appeal needs about fifty two percent is now through a strategy is she could possibly proceed no if it's a try to reach out to the have assigned to try to make a more pragmatic bricks and the problem in parliament is a different one parliament is just split so many ways you've got fifty or sixty hardcore brick city is that what out on one out now with no deal is get away as quick as you can you get some of this around trees maybe one herd deal you've got the jeremy colby loyalists in the labor party they want to slightly different breaks it and then you've got maybe one hundred hundred fifty who still want to
remain and so poems views. don't precisely represent the views of the general population but ultimately the reason there's no progress being made is because they split four ways and you just simply call it on what i can majority of anything will parliament can find consensus just just like the population has really struggled to find consensus on this so take me then to next we've got this extension that they're going to ask your opinion for a three month extension. does that make a difference if next week this plan but a recently is passed there are two ways forward next week the first is to resign may's deal is passed in poland on tuesday we think the very does going to be she will then go to brussels on thursday and ask for a three month extension which will be granted because essentially it takes brits in up to just build the european elections everything is relatively simple exact path is clear but that is the less likely path because the chances of getting the deal
approved next week as i see it very heavily oulds again so what will she do then if it's rejected the third time then just go to brussels not rigidly but we don't know how long now brussels will look we we will give you a delay but we'll only give you a delay if you give us a plan of what you're going to do that brussels is tired of this never ending threesome a going off to an emergency meeting going back and forth give us a little bit can you give us something extra on the northern ireland border question brussels is going to essentially send them to london and their label will give you more time but why why we should we give you extra months if you've not managed to solve it in two and a half years or it is to resume a going to be prime minister a week from now i think there's a chance that she will pull an exit and that's one of the things that being talked about also about a week from now new she'll still be a week from a week from now she may have said i am willing to go under these criteria because it's one of the things that's being remade in the tory party is if she whipped to probably still you've even tells me to that might be
a way of increasing the chances of getting a good deal for you before we run out of time some people have been saying this week that breaks it is the beginning of the end of britain's status as a global power i think when everyone looks at britain at the moment as one of the people in the short film we sort of a moment ago said britain looks ridiculous in the eyes of the world already regardless of what actually happens of bret's whether they see this through or not britain is going to an enormous amount to rebuild. to do under a new prime minister in the future to improve its role in the world again because it's already taken enormous hate however breaks it in the end goes through it all ok and we've got twenty seconds at the end of the day do you think that breaks that will happen one do you think they'll be a second reform it. will not happen but not just yet it's going to require a delay for through the end of the period of that delay maybe then a referendum or a new general election and we may still be sitting here at the end of twenty twenty
brant without with britain still in the european i mean i feel like it's a broken record and we just can't stop skipping all right john where there's always the thank you for sharing your insights i'm sure we'll see you next week. well thousands of children around the globe skipped school on friday to cole and world leaders to do more to combat climate change the student strikes took place in an estimated one hundred countries they are part of the fridays for future movement started by the sixteen year old swedish climate activist greg the to this was the biggest day yet for gretta and for other young activists who were following her lead. great to turn bird started it with a simple bit of activism a student strike today things were still fairly simple for her a march on the swedish parliament as with just about every friday for months now and a simple message of action on climate change young people didn't cause this she says
but young people will have to live with the consequences of commission then we're not going to acceptance and that's why we're striking we strike because we want to future and we will continue. i they want a future in india as well students took to the streets in delhi i supported it and like she's the only one who took initiative in sweden and because the thought of you got to know about this is just hand me out of supporting her benefits on young people in delhi were joined by some with a few more years experience of breathing delis in from a small older protesters have all but given up on their own generation and are looking to the next for a solution. now the culinary come forward it's for them their future we have ruined it for them and i have no hope from our generation also i mean even if we get the government even if it doesn't in italy there were strikes and protests in dozens of cities students left class to hammer home the same messages that great a tune first made in her first strike this the biggest day in
