least nine people have been killed and sixteen entered when a van drove into pedestrian center also canada place a the van apparently jumped the curb this happened on one of the city's main streets which could remain shut now for days videos posted online show the standoff between a suspected driver and police before he was arrested. he just went on the sidewalk he just started hitting everybody he had every single person on the sidewalk anybody in israel you would hit the bus stop everything was shot or there's a lady in there and i saw i just stopped and then looked annoyed when after to generalize crumbling up one by one one by one assume the stroller i didn't see the baby i saw a stronger ha slit and i seen i seen people the most gruesome scene i seen was a young an interest on woman's leg and leg was all months home. it was really bad. i guess taking us down the arse and i saw the us know what you're just going to
2:03 am
find something wrong i know so many people just shouting stop the car not even just a good morning and he did something home and scream people lie down near and even and look at all so the car just kept hitting people do you think it was on purpose or did it look like it was on purpose i think it's on purpose because if the car going to work he should like it a car or something and stop but he just didn't go through this time. toronto's mayor is asking people to stay away from that area this is a time when this community should come together these are not the kinds of things that we expect to happen in the city we hope they don't happen anywhere in the world but we especially don't expect them to happen in toronto but things are as they are and beyond supporting our first responders as they continue to do their work and you'll hear more about the task that lies in front of them investigating this terrible tragedy i hope that we will as a city remind ourselves of the fact that we are admired around the world for being
2:04 am
inclusive and free and for being accepting and understanding and considerate and was there santa lakas live for us in toronto so daniel tell us more about we've mentioned that this is main street tell us more about this area and the kind of any pact something like this could have happening and in this particular part of toronto. richelle this was it's hard to imagine a worse part for this horrific attack to take place and it was a transport hub you had trains buses and subways coming together there universities and colleges that are connected through this hub and there are many offices and a very residential area surrounding it it was a beautiful spring day people were out on the streets there's a lot of shopping around there in short the streets were far more crowded than they might normally have been even though this was a busy day and it happened about one thirty in the afternoon local time the van came out of nowhere down the main street mounted the pavement the sidewalk and just
2:05 am
started hitting objects and people and that went on for several blocks it finally came to a halt about six blocks after the first time it mounted the sidewalk and a very strange encounter there between a single police officer holding what appeared to be a shotgun a long barreled gun and the person who's allegedly the driver of the white van then pretty damaged standing next to it with something in his hand going like this as if he were drawing a weapon and then going like this it's been speculated here he was trying to get himself shot because then the police officer moved in with his gun and put him on the ground and announced an arrest so we're waiting for details we don't have an official name for the suspect yet we don't have any idea what the motive might be but we do have horrific casualty figures nine dead sixteen injured many of those critically and there's obviously a lot of families in toronto very nervous tonight and a lot more very thankful that there are relatives loved ones and they themselves were in that area today to talk more about that as her it's
2:06 am
a great point that people obviously get scared and get nervous when things like this happen particularly these things don't really happen and they often happen in other places. this is what people here used to have to have in their lives to turn on the television into see these attacks in nice or paris or berlin or elsewhere in the world in the middle east and beyond and occasionally in the united states with all the mass shootings they have there canada has fewer of those that has fewer weapons in the streets just the fact that the police officer who made this arrest was actually leveling a shotgun on the man and telling him to get down and didn't shoot him it strikes many people here as being a sort of canadian approach to this the officer obviously knew he and the bystanders weren't in danger so yeah there's a lot of calls tonight for people to to get back out on the streets and to not worry the officials what they are saying about this attack while not speculating as to the cause or the motives just yet that they don't think it was linked to
2:07 am
anything larger in terms of a network or or other people that people should get back out in the streets and go about their lives they probably will see some extra cops around in the streets that area where this took place everything will be closed but for now we just need more details about what happened today and why ok daniel lak keeping us posted from toronto daniel thank you. tens of thousands of armenians are celebrating the resignation of the prime minister search for kids in he's stepping down after almost two weeks of anti-government protests opponents had accused him of a power grab robin forestay walker reports in the capital year. attention turns to celebration after eleven days of street protests the. prime minister. it was a humiliating to say. the band who has clung to power in the for the soviet republic for a decade on monday he was to preserve the peace he said just hours after. joining
2:08 am
the crowds. we know that the country has been suffering specifically under the rule of the. mandates of the president with absolute lack of institutional freedom so be it the judicial be it the the police me or be it the. the health or culture or even the religious of the fact that they really took the initiative on individual individual basis to come to the street shows that ultimately institutions are formed by human beings and human minds and intentions. stepped down after the release of the leader of the opposition his arrest the day before had only served to crowds her was president since two thousand and eight his second term in office had ended but the pliant parliament formed off the constitutional changes he presided over swiftly appointed

2:10 am
protest apart one was that this has generated huge crowds protesters both and people from various social backgrounds the second these were classical nonviolent civil disobedience acts basically since so many other countries in the post for that region. these changes have been very upsetting for moscow many would think that russia would be very unhappy with his daughters however there was no real absolutely no geopolitical geopolitical element in this protest and actually russia refrained from interfering because i think it's perhaps understood to do one doesn't want to tie its reputation with an unpopular leader. the secretary general has condemned an airstrike that had a wedding party and yemen more than thirty people were killed in the attack by the

saudi led forces in the western province of ha he tells our emerging up another saudi airstrike last week which killed a senior who the leader like hannah has more from the united nations. the wedding bowl which was to have been the scene of joyous celebration was turned into a death trap this video which al-jazeera cannot independently verify shows the off to math of the airstrikes believed to being carried out by the saudi led coalition local officials said the first missile detonated in the men's section of the wedding party moments later a second one hit the side on which the females were gathered this footage released by the rebels shows the horrific off the mats. a young boy screaming and crying next to what appears to be the lifeless body of his father dozens of people were treated in the nearby hospitals and they have no mercy towards children they've been killed without any remorse says this man
2:12 am
a spokesman for the saudi led coalition says it will carry out a full investigation the u.n. has set that off the estimated ten thousand menes that have so far lost their lives in the conflict some sixty percent have been killed in strikes. there's been no formal response from the security council as yet its members have just returned from a weekend retreat in sweden but the office of the secretary general has issued a statement on his behalf condemning the attack it reads in part the secretary general reminds all parties of the obligations under international humanitarian law concerning the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure during armed conflicts he calls for a prompt effective and transparent investigation and during the day details emerged off another salbi led air strike political council here. was killed in an apparent missile attack in what i province last thursday to burgle and.
2:13 am
with sorrow and sadness i mooned to our yemeni people the did martyr president saleh. he was killed on the nineteenth of april with six of his companions he was targeted in her data province on his way back from a meeting with local leaders by three airstrikes launched by the warplanes of the us saudi aggression sunday our summit is the most senior who feel leader to have been killed since the west and back saudi led coalition intervened in yemen just over three years ago mike hanna al-jazeera united nations peter solsbury sustain your consulting fellow for the middle east and north africa program at the think tank chatham chatham house he says some odd was symbolically important to the healthy movement. some odd was the head of the supreme political council that was formed in august of two thousand and sixteen and he was
2:14 am
a sensible. figure who filled the role of president in controlled areas but in terms of his decision making power on a day to day basis he was increasingly more of a figurehead than a major figure he came from the political wing and as the war continued the military wing and the more extreme wing of the movement really took over the overall decision maker for the who feasibly monocle hoofy who is generally recognized as the leader of the hoofy movement some odd came from the group's political wing. half brother mohamad is effectively sort of the the ruler of the who controlled areas of yemen from son and his full brother the holic oversees security and some on the ground a lot of the country so realistically when you look at the structure of the group he was a political figure a figurehead who was overseeing an organization which was meant to bring the who
2:15 am
these together with the g.p.c. the party of value to the sala the former president himself was killed last december by the who thiis so what we're really seeing is we're doing out of many political figures an increasing consolidation within the movement of military hardliners so it so again he's someone who had some significance he was symbolically important to the movement this will be a blow to them but overall it makes very little difference to the movement overall . plenty more ahead of the news hour including donald trump's pick for the next secretary of state faces a major test in the senate plus the. protests in nicaragua despite the president scrapping reforms that sparked be unrest and sport and footballer of the year is setting his sights on team success in europe and we will have that story.
2:16 am
french president mandela has arrived in the u.s. for a three day state visit he says he'll try to persuade donald trump to stick with the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal with iran u.s. president has until may twelfth to decide whether to remain in the path between iran and six world leaders the foreign ministers of russia and china say they'll block any attempt by the u.s. to sabotage the deal alan fischer joins us live now from washington d.c. so allan how likely is it that the crown actually will have any luck convincing donald trump to stay in this nuclear deal with iran. well the term say they have a special relationship there's a special relationship between the united states and france but you must think it would be highly unlikely given the statements donald trump made is kind of trump given the fact that he's always said that the iran nuclear deal was a bad deal for the united states that he said as soon as he became president he would scrap it essentially saying that twice as he has to do under u.s.
2:17 am
law to renew it but he said the last time he did it would be the last time and said others had to come up with a much better deal which address questions such as ballistic missile test by iran and also iran's influence in the middle east so you would suggest that it's unlikely particularly since he decided not to say he was going to not renew the deal next time around me the twelfth he's appointed the national security adviser john bolton someone who's talked about regime change in iran and also it looks as if he may well get his pick for the next u.s. secretary of state might pompei oh who's on the record to say he also didn't like the nuclear deal but here's the one caveat there is and that is donald trump also said he hated the transpacific partnership that he was going to pull out of it in fact it was one of the first things he did when he came into the white house and though he and his administration are saying well we have to look at this because it gives us some sort of security against the growing financial economic might of
2:18 am
china so we might come back into the t p p if we can renegotiate in some way so you would suggest probably not there's not a great deal for movement here but then this is donald trump and this we've seen that there's always the possibility that he might just might but. yes that seems to be how policy is now so what else is on the agenda during this visit. well he's going to talk about trade tariffs and of course he said on the record that he's looking at the possibility of imposing new targets on european goods coming into the country mccrone is against that climate change will be on the agenda as well donald trump of course pulled out of the paris agreement among mccall wants him to go back into it they will talk about syria to remember that when the airstrikes were carried out in syria at the beginning of april it was
2:19 am
carried out by the united states the united kingdom and france president mccall supported the action then obviously contributed military support to it as well but he wants to look at some sort of multinational approach to bringing stability on the ground in syria bringing about a political solution as well and so that is going to be one of the topics the undoubtedly will be covered during the private dinner at the venue in which we're told is coming under way the home of george washington and will be covered during the talks here at the white house and during the state dinner the first ever state dinner donald trump has hosted when president mccall will be the guest of honor on tuesday evening ok that's your life for us in washington d.c. thank you allan. a u.s. senate panel has narrowly voted to recommend cia director might pompei o as secretary of state republican rand paul changed his vote after earlier saying he would oppose the nomination that meant the eleven votes needed from the twenty one
2:20 am
member panel for his nomination to advance to the full senate. has risen rapidly from the french's of the republican party to became one of the president's most trusted advisers came to congress as a tea party republican from kansas in two thousand and ten and serve until trump tapped him for the cia last year a former u.s. army officer from peo shares trumps views on north korea and iran and is signal support for regime change and both countries he's been accused of promoting anti islam views once saying muslims are a threat to america wasn't born joins us live now from washington d.c. so roz when it came to comp aoe becoming the director of the cia democrats for the most part were ok with that they've had a lot of pushback though now with him being secretary of state why. well it's very simple being secretary of state is not the same as being the director of the cia one deals in transparency and in trying to promote good relations with other
2:21 am
countries the other person is responsible for trying to find out another country secrets and so the democrats on the senate foreign relations committee argued that just because mike pompei o finished first in his class at west point was a soldier was a lawyer from harvard also had a very successful business career doesn't mean that he's qualified to be the secretary of state well now that issue is going to be settled by the full u.s. senate all one hundred members minus one or two or who are absent including john mccain who is a way for treatment for brain cancer we should point out that the vote in the senate foreign relations committee ended up being ten in favor nine opposed one voting present that's because one of the republicans who sits on the panel was not at monday evening's business meeting and unless someone is actually there in person they vote does not count if it's cast by proxy so one of the democrats and what is
2:22 am
being described is a statesman like move decided to change his no vote to present given that he had already established on the record his deep opposition to mike palm pale as the next secretary of state as not the only vote change drives republican rand paul changed his vote in committee as well or why is that and do we know if that means that he will actually vote to confirm him once it gets to the full senate. well rand paul said that after assurances from both the president donald trump and from mike pompei o in separate conversations that they both supported his view that the u.s. led war in afghanistan needs to and sooner rather than later the war is now coming up on its seventeenth anniversary in october and for rand paul that is just seventeen years too long of course just because he endorsed his nomination in the
2:23 am
committee vote on monday does not mean that rand paul couldn't then turn around on the senate floor and then vote against mike palm pale of course the big question now is when will that vote happen that's up to mitch mcconnell the senate majority leader ok ross and jordan live for us in washington d.c. ross thank you the only surviving suspect from the two thousand and fifteen paris attacks has been jailed for twenty years and belgium for la salla was convicted for his role in a gunfight that led to his arrest in brussels he was not in court to hear the verdict natasha butler has more solid up to slums lawyer was in the brussels cooled for the verdict but not his client of dishonest can defend and sophia and i already have chosen not to attend the judge sentenced both men to twenty years in prison for attempted murder during a shootout with police in the belgian capital two years ago the judge said there was a common will from both the defendants to belong to

a view very clear passage where it says. these sanctions are not meant to have adverse negative effects on the people of. that's the official line privately even western diplomats will tell you there's a stigma to denature humanitarian aid to north korea for example an important program by the n.g.o.s the global fund to fight malaria and tuberculosis was caught earlier this year sanctions are having an effect in north korea but perhaps not the one the international community wanted james pays. doctors in the u.s. have performed the world's first total penis and scrotum transplant team at johns hopkins university and baltimore took fourteen our second plate the operation on a military servicemen who was wounded in afghanistan a late surge and is optimistic the patient will have close to normal physical function after he recovers sharp rise in drug trafficking and violence in mexico
