2:02 am
with more on this it is a developing story john the city's sticks fluctuating according to different sources i mean what do we know about the timeline and in deed about those that have died and injured. well so that we know very little more than we have known all day long and the reason for that is that we're waiting on a press conference right now in which governor abbott is supposed to be speaking about this and local police authorities but we have had little bits of information trickle out there a local television station k.s. eighty quotes authorities saying that the gunman has been identified as a white male in his mid twenty's the new york times we have not confirmed this independently but the new york times has identified the gunman as devon p. kelly twenty six years of age and we're really waiting on more information all we know now is that the gunman came into this very small church in
2:03 am
a town of just over six hundred people. shot dozens of people killing more than two dozen and wounding many more and this of course is simply the latest in a series of shootings here in the u.s. mass shootings and right now without that news conference information we don't know what any motivation might have been for the gunman this was obviously someone who went into that building to kill and he managed to kill more than two dozen people before he was stopped so but we are waiting for more details on just exactly what happened there and what the motivation of that gunman might have been well of course while you were talking to us john we all seeing pictures obviously of the location aerial shots and of course that's devastates of the community so and so we're actually hearing what. local religious leaders are saying this is what they had to say just a short time alyea. when we got a call that there was and that if you were going actually shooting going on down to
2:04 am
earth or first baptist church those people first responders immediately that guard church to come down to help our church immediately went into what we do and we started writing for everyone that was involved in it. the people of this church and the first responders that are going out here. it's just a pack a song you know as a family or a family show what it does it just it causes us to ok to stop or doing start to pray and see how we can serve and that's what you're seeing right here in this community is rallying around these folks and so we're just going to try to do our best to comfort and and minister how we can with a difficult time for those involved at the center of that story john and just for some context ravi is according to one agency the gun violence they say that in two thousand and seventeen there were two hundred seventy three mass shooting that's three or more people dead in an incident eleven thousand six hundred fifty
2:05 am
have died so far this year twenty three thousand five hundred injured it does again raises specter of debate within the u.s. all about gun control the gun lobby on the constitution. that's right so this is absolutely going to rekindle that debate but the problem that gun control advocates continually have in this country is that it runs up against the second amendment which depending on who you talk to whose interpretation you're using either says that people have the absolute right to bear arms or a limited right as many people believe but congress is firmly in republican hands the republicans are firmly pro gun control and what we have seen time and time and time again with these shootings is that congress has not taken action or it has sought to take limited action and gotten nowhere president barack obama a democrat sought to pursue legislation after
2:06 am
a mass shooting and he was able to achieve really nothing and we have heard talk after this last shooting in las vegas in which the gunman used a bump stock which basically turns a weapon into an automatic weapon congress has not even been able to limit those in that measure does not seem to be going anywhere it will be interesting to see if anything happens in this particular case but time and time again congress has not acted you have in president trump a republican president who is firmly a fan of the national rifle association which has resisted most efforts to limit gun use here although interestingly they were willing to consider restrictions on those bumps docs that i reference but it's very difficult to get anything done in this country in terms of limiting the weapons that are use the munitions inside those weapons. in congress or at the white house right now well for them we'll
2:07 am
leave it there of course we'll wait for that press conference to happen in the town of stockdale will come back to you john to that press conference live when it does happen thank you. donald trump commerce secretary and aid to canadian prime minister just in trudeau and queen elizabeth the second of the united kingdom well they're just some of the people mentioned so far in a huge leak of financial documents that show how the powerful on the wealthy have allegedly been putting arguably or hiding their money in offshore tax havens now this is a mountain of material more than thirteen million files called the paradise papers and leaked from the offshore. applebee an estimated ten trillion dollars is held in these offshore tax havens and in most cases it's perfectly legal but critics argue enabling the mega rich to hide from the tax man is unfair an issue governments have been slow to address but more importantly here the offshore financial system is also incredibly secretive arguably opening the way for companies and individuals to
2:08 am
commit wrongdoing the law firm appleby says it's confident the papers will show no evidence of wrongdoing next week's disclosures apparently will reveal the truth of that drew sullivan is the editor of organized crime and corruption reporting project he joins me now on skype from sorry have a good to have you with this i mean what does this tranche of paperwork and details actually tell us about large companies and individuals in the way that they manage their money. i think what you're seeing and we saw this in the panama papers too is is there's a new global industry that caters to money that moves around the world and this money moves through tax havens and it used to evade taxes to hide assets to steal money if you are going to prime it used by and large businesses and what this is really doing it it allowing globalizing money you're allowed to move your money
2:09 am
legally into places where you don't have to pay taxes and the problem is is that the countries which were getting taxes when a yacht was bought or a plane with about it is there an issue that as you say of legality for example her majesty the queen of england is one of the most wealthiest women in the world she might actually be doing the tax man a favor by actually. taking so i think how many off you might say into offshore accounts i'm not expecting the british taxpayer to fund all the things that the british royal family are expected to perform in their duties as part of the royal household across the u.k. . well it's all depends on the jurisdiction i mean in some places what's going on is clearly illegal activity and even apple b. was aware of some of this illegal activity but you know the larger issue is you know whether it's tax mitigation or tax evasion the problem is it's not it's not
2:10 am
fair because you only can really do this if you have a large amount of money there's a criminal services industry that kind of caters to this market and allows people to do this and regular people are just not allowed to do that there are some countries such as the u.k. for example that are tightening their grip on offshore accounts but not saying they're illegal but they all monitoring offshore accounts certainly in places like jersey and the isle of man if that is correct all of the countries following the united kingdom's route in this particular scenario well for every hole that's closed in a new one open somewhere else that that's the problem there becomes new jurisdiction's all the time and what's really essential here is that jurisdiction should require that any money or assets or businesses that mine sure. give the kind of disclosure that's necessary to be able to trace these three difficult when somebody is using
2:11 am
five or six different offshore jurisdictions to get a true picture of what they're really doing and in countries need that because law enforcement not easy to cross borders but crime can cross borders and if for the moment to do someone is going to pleasure speaking to you thanks for joining us from sari eva thanks if you. want to saudi arabia's princes being killed in a helicopter crash near the border with yemen eight saudi officials also died in the crash prince manzullo been moved in our sound was the son of the former crown prince muqrin these videos were posted on his twitter page hours before his death showing him carrying out an inspection of the sense and environment projects he was appointed as the deputy governor of the share of the a c a region which borders yemen it's not yet clear what caused the crash. more than a dozen saudi princes and ministers have been detained in a sweeping corruption crackdown the kingdom restricted to flights and rounds at the
2:12 am
officials just hours after the establishment of an anti corruption committee one of the world's richest men is among those being held now this happened a saudi arabia announced a major cabinet overhaul widely seen as consolidating the power of the crown prince mohammed bin salon natasha going to reports call it a surprise saturday night shake up saudi state t.v. reported that eleven princes three current and dozens of former ministers have been detained as part of an intake irruption probe only hours after the formation of an investigative committee was announced it's difficult to relate this to corruption since they didn't have enough time to make a prosecution to make investigations about that if there was something or some information collected previously why did the and with. the case by case in different be with before about the not doing this overnight all these people
2:13 am
together which is rather a quick way suspicious. the saudi cabinet overhaul is viewed as a power play by king solomon analysts say it's designed to ensure his son and heir to the throne crown prince mohammed bin solomon consolidates power and does so among their branch of the royal family he's making this public relations stance to get more public support and also a little bit of the way for his popularity one of the most high profile figures pushed out is the minister of the national guard prince metabo bin of dollar he was the son of former king abdullah and once thought to be next in line to the throne he was the remaining member of the abdullah family in such a high level position. also detained is prince will lead bin tell out he's one of the wealthiest men in the world and given his widespread investments is detainment could have an impact on global business. this shake up sends
2:14 am
a message there's a new political order but only do we have a new chapter opening up in saudi arabia where the whole new book a whole new political i bet if you will accept i mean with one exception that's still all done in secrecy it's also a reminder that for months after the crown prince was named heir to the throne there can be no mistake mohammed bin selman is the future for saudi arabia natasha going to zero well staying in the region in yemen asteroids talking the hooty run defense ministry and a square used for mass rallies of hits the capital sanaa it follows the firing of ballistic missiles into neighboring saudi arabia on saturday he's released this footage which they say shows the launch into riyadh it was aimed at the international airport or near the saudi capital that was intercepted and shot down before it reached its target. well saudi arabia has pointed the finger at iran for
2:15 am
arming the who teams with such missiles and expertise saudi is leading a coalition of countries which are fighting the who tease in yemen's war constantly bombarding the country with as strikes the spokesman for the military operations as saudi arabia has evidence of iran's involvement with the rebel group. you would would you know you these militant who are supported by iranian experts iran provides the who is military experts on the planet in collaboration in cooperation with the terrorist organization of his ally in lebanon they are trying to control the strait in a dangerous challenge to regional peace and stability and to the movement of ships through the strait international trade with iran and hezbollah have accused saudi arabia and the us as well as israel of trying to fuel tension in the middle east by pushing lebanon's prime minister to resign saad hariri announced he was leaving his
2:16 am
post on saturday has been secretary general says saudi arabia is behind the sudden resignation and says the statement written by assad is so if you want to discuss it we need to discuss that. the way. it is it's not the way of really it's not the way of. block and what has been written and that is ignition the statement is completely different even sense that harry reid. came to power the way he thinks the way he deals with matters there where here sorts of problems doesn't go. with the content of those of a nation statement. hariri made the resignation announcement in a television broadcast from the saudi capital riyadh saying that there was an assassination plot against him he criticised hezbollah and iran for their actions
2:17 am
in lebanon and israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says iran is trying to dominate the whole region but i think this is a wake up call for everyone it says what the middle east is really experiencing it's experiencing the attempt of iran to conquer the middle east to dominate in subjugated and i think when israelis and arabs and it's all the arabs and the israeli i want to agree on one thing. people should pay attention we should stop this rainy and take over. iran's government says saudi is using the resignation of hariri to cover up its own internal political crisis which is there is a mess ravi has been speaking to a member of parliament for the iranian national security and foreign policy commission. not having hussein is a member of the iranian parliament he's also the spokesman for the parliamentary commission on national security and foreign policy he gave us his perspective on the events unfolding in saudi arabia over the last few days regarding the
2:18 am
resignation of the lebanese prime minister he said there's no doubt in the iranian government's mind that saad hariri was pressured by the saudi government to step down and it was a cord needed effort to distract from saudi arabia's own internal political problems here's what he had to say. based on your crew in the government of saudi arabia there has been a coup and saudi arabia tried to use the resignation of saad hariri to hide any tunnel movements inside the saudi government but the first headline is the resignation of saad hariri not incidents happening inside the government of saudi arabia so we believe that this is coordinated now he also said that iran's government has information to suggest that hardline political groups are taking over saudi affairs but he took the opportunity to reach out to the saudi government a lot and we believe if there is cooperation between saudi arabia and iran it is beneficial for the rage and it could bring calm to the region but they rely on
2:19 am
america they rely on israel they think that with american weapons they can be a power in the region this is a wrong theory the government before the revolution in iran the shah's regime with totally saving america but americans abandoned him during the islamic revolution so instead of relying on american powers and foreign powers pay attention to the countries of the bridge and finally hussein he said that attacks by yemen's hooty fighters on targets inside saudi arabia are in evitable he said that hundreds of yemenis are dying every day in saudi bombardment and that the people that they're fighting can't be expected to do nothing saying he said that yemen had become a quagmire for saudi arabia in the same way that vietnam had become a quagmire for the americans and he said that it was time for saudi arabia to stop the violence and negotiate their way out of the conflict because as he said the era of empires is over. lebanon has long been a source of regional strife civil wars confrontation with israel and the role of
2:20 am
hezbollah which is often described as a state within a state has put the country at the center of middle east politics for decades well in the wake of hurries resignation political leaders are again concerned about the potential for the spread of instability cynical to reports now from beirut. yet again lebanon is on the brink its prime minister has resigned a country not immune to political crises and its people know all too well what instability can bring. we've lived through the civil war and we know a small incident can player up a situation if it's not resolved and there are no mature minds the country will fall apart and that is what we are will happen. so i did a how did these announcement came as a shock from the saudi capital riyadh he cited concerns for his life and blamed iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah for meddling in arab affairs many interpreted the move as a declaration by saudi arabia of all out war against hezbollah and it cannot be
2:21 am
isolated from the iranian saudi rivalry playing out across the region. the resignation is related to what's going on in the region there are a true main powers vying for influence and lebanon is in the eye of the struggle this is not an internal lebanese matter. iran's ally the lebanese party has and its allies had a powerful role in government but hezbollah is not only a political party it has an armed wing that has helped keep syrian president bashar assad's government in power iran's influence has expanded across the middle east and saudi arabia the united states and israel have all made it clear they intend to take a more aggressive stance to curb iran's power in lebanon now there is a dangerous political vacuum that can't be easily filled levanon it is a parliamentary democracy but in reality it is a consensual democracy the two rival political camps need to agree on a compromise candidate who will be able to put together
2:22 am
a national unity government that won't be easy how did he and his allies refuse to share power with hezbollah and appointing a candidate close to hezbollah will risk isolating lebanon this isn't the first time political life in lebanon has come to an end and it isn't the first time the saudi iranian rivalry is to blame in the past the country has pulled back from the edge the question many ask is if it will be able to do so again it's out of. beirut . responsible here in the news hour including kohli's officials announce a new presidential election two years after widespread protests broke out over president could be has refused to step down. and install the new york marathon gets his first on. american female we're in the fourteen yes that's coming up in sports . to africa now election officials in the democratic republic of congo say
