6:00 am
on al-jazeera. europe faces many challenges but migration could become the make or break one for the e.u. . breaking news out of brussels the european union says it's reached a deal on how to handle the migration crisis. i'm sam is a dam this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up a temporary truce in the battle for southwestern syria not before nearly eighty people were killed. the search for answers after a gunman opened fire killing five people in a newspaper office in the u.s. plus. we're open for business made in the usa it's all happening and it's happening
6:01 am
very very well. president trump it's the campaign trail ahead of us midterm elections. now e.u. leaders have reached a deal i aimed at controlling the influx of migrants and refugees into europe they came to the deal after ten hours of negotiating at the e.u. summit in brussels the newly elected populist italian prime minister just separate conte earlier blog to join the e.u. statement and threaten to veto the entire agenda if no solution was found its go live now to lawrence taylor he joins us by the phone he's been covering that meeting in brussels so what exactly is in the deal. well it's it's pretty straightforward and it's and it's sally narrow to be honest i wouldn't say it's
6:02 am
quite right that it's it solves the in time i gratian crisis. but what they have agreed on the misses the french plan the man will take the credit for this is the french president microphone he started talking with the italian prime it can see much earlier in the evening with an idea of hosting what they call involuntary sensors. in it's really in greece the two countries clearly which is the main entry point for migrants and refugees to the consonance and the idea is that both of these countries now will be able to host voluntarily holding census it's a bit difficult so imagine exactly what these places would look like but the idea i suppose is that they would be very very large senses where everybody who. is putting them in process and then has decided that those places who might having each on seoul's getting any sort of asylum system playing. on who dozens
6:03 am
and presumably the ones with dozens of them immediately sent back and what happens in the rest of them is it is a bit unclear but the main points of this is to challenge the still what's been happening at the moment which is when people arrive they need to leave those countries in ceasars a canon china was on foot all but by whatever other means with you suggesting some western europe and eastern those places where the pressure was coming because austria and the polish the german coalition the sides we won't accept this anymore that the person is going to benefit clearly the most in the short sentence of this if it's if it's as good as what they say it is now is the german chancellor angela merkel because this is obviously threatens inside premiership in germany you mentioned the use the word voluntary is there an obligation in fact upon the members to share the responsibility of dealing with the migrants and refugees. well
6:04 am
no it doesn't it doesn't look like it you know from the dull problem that they had with ace that the dooms so-called closest system comes as a supposed to share refusing loglan saoirse was one of the reasons what they saw as a full of faults in the show's place because so many countries said. to look after anybody it's all. it looks like this is probably going to have to run well i haven't really been specified yet hand in hand with some source of reform of the so called dublin regulation where refugees is that i was a seek asylum in the country that the goats greece's signal that it might be prepared to take people from germany to dublin in order to shore up angle americal it's only a contrivance that said it's not prepared to do the little because it believes it is shouldering too much responsibility in things the refugees should be shared out more i think of what he sees in the absence of any way of setting it the source of
6:05 am
holdings and to deny the north africa or other countries outside the european union is a way of basically blocking the. the random movements of refugees outs of these border countries in the holding them in a way that will allow them to the process lol and then is presumably still to be determined exactly how they might be shat out of germany to be fast has had some suppose on this from countries like spain and from as well which was just seven months repentance like a few more people clearly what it doesn't is just all the influx and that's that still that still happens even if in less than numbers that we have been happening a couple of years ago but it does a thing take away quite a lot so the enormous italian thing which which is very important for the for the central parts of the european union and as i said the full it takes an awful lot of
6:06 am
pressure off lying in the muckle who's if she can go back home and sell this coalition it looks like this actually might at least in the short term save leadership of june. all right good stuff there from lawrence lee will come back to you no doubt lawrence when the details of this become a little bit clearer italy's one of the countries that refused to let in a rescue ship carrying more than two hundred migrants a lifeline eventually docked in malta after being stranded at sea for six days now is the subject of an investigation police questioning whether it was this is things mandalas johnson reports from the letter. the lifelines belong to the crew spent the day washing down the boat taking out rubbish accumulated during its six days at sea mission lifeline which owns the vessel has a more complicated cleanup of its reputation it's interactive accused of colluding to smuggle people to europe after it refused to hand over two hundred thirty three
6:07 am
rescued refugees to libyan authorities we picked up them on the twenty first of two in. about eighteen and twenty two miles. from the libyan coast so in international waters. you can coast guard boat approached us and told us to hand the migrants to them they wanted to bring back some migrants to libya where they put to jail so we said well there's no way for us to hand outs of migrants. refused to the lifeline a safe port in italy preferring to send refugees to camps in libya what italians do is illegal so we think that italian is breaking international law because libya is not safe and people are crowded in in such prisons and. face monitress and say i and tortured and raped so
6:08 am
we are sure that this is not a solution and should stop very very soon the plight of the lifeline embodies the broader european debate about whether to rescue refugees at sea and bring them to safety in the european union or ship them to camps in so-called safe countries stablished humanitarian practice is that of bringing them to europe but there is disagreement on putting sharing and a growing chorus of hardliners supports outsourcing humanitarianism. the lifelines refugees are now. at first processing center in walesa are lucky to have their asylum interviews in europe from their balconies they can see the freedom was awaits them unemployment television and dominoes in this ship breaker's good is safe but not a life and some european attitudes are hardening against freelance search and rescuers who would help bring others here mulder's prime minister
6:09 am
a liberal compared to some e.u. leaders holds this against them the captain of the said so who went against international rules and ignored directions being given by the italian authorities who were coordinating the rescue it appears that european search and rescue has become a political not a humanitarian act. al-jazeera valetta. five people have been killed in a shooting at a newspaper building in the u.s. state of maryland the gunman targeted the offices of the capitol because that newspaper in annapolis that include four journalists and a sales assistant a man's now in custody and being questioned by police. joe castro has more from enough there's also a picture is emerging from police about the gunman. that's right sammy so police have been very hesitant to confirm the identity of their lone suspect but the associated press in the local other news outlets here are reporting
6:10 am
that the suspect is thirty eight year old jared gramma's he reportedly attempted to sue the capitol because that a few years ago for defamation but his lawsuit was ultimately dismissed police are saying that they're suspect is likely linked to a social media account that has made threats previously to the capital because that the most recent one having occurred the same day as this attack they have also issued a search warrant and are presumably going through the home of the suspect as we speak now as far as the five victims police have released their names as you mentioned four of them we're journalists with that is that which is a newspaper that has been covering the capital of maryland now for more than two hundred years many say a beloved part of this community and of course the fifth victim a sales assistant and in the in this as this investigation continues to unfold
6:11 am
police have been very hesitant to jump to any conclusions and they have not themselves commented on the motive of the gunman but there has been ample speculation that the current political atmosphere fueled mostly by the rhetoric of u.s. president donald trump may have contributed to this at least as this attack was unfolding we know that trump earlier this month month had tweeted that the american news media was the country's worst enemy today at the white house he was asked by reporters to comment on the slaying of these journalists he did not respond to those questions but he did tweet his condolences his press secretary sarah sanders in a morgue. demming tweet did say that this attack on innocent journalists doing their job is an attack on all americans and as an ominous sign of these uncertain times we have seen police guards now protecting the offices of the new york times

terrorism is lowered by your victories to be replaced by the banner of peace and tranquility despite the terrorists and those who support them. more overnight rain has raised the water levels inside the cave complex in northern thailand where a football team remains missing the twelve boys and their coach have not been seen since saturday leaving many families anxious and desperate scored high level poles from chiang rai. yelling into the hills for their missing boys forefathers in the jungle above cave pleading for their son to come home but the only reply they got was the worrying of a black hawk helicopter after a night of heavy rain the skies cleared in the afternoon allowing helicopters to resume searching from the air frustrated with the lack of information and progress after five days the fathers went out on their own checking in with the searchers
6:20 am
and looking for answers. i want to ask the governor how my boys and all the other kids where are they do they have food and water that's all i want to know the only thing i can do is just wait and wait with. a group of rescue volunteers from bangkok where you see high tech laser scanner in an attempt to locate the boys we plan to lower down a recently located chimney that they hope lead to deep in the cave. me as can i can see through laser ten meters and can show a graphic of the cave if we drop it in the cave we can see the shape of a human more than a thousand people are now involved in the search including american troops and british diving experts. but was so many bodies and organizations at the scene there are also serious logistical challenges were deep in the hills that housed this vast cave network while some groups are using high tech to assist in the search and rescue operation some like these from the park service are doing it the old
6:21 am
fashioned way they're hiking through these woods to link up with some rescue officials deeper in the hills while the searching continues in the water in the air in the vast jungle families are focused on staying strong because at this stage that's one of few things they have control over while scott high blood joins us now from chan riser how's the search looking now this point scott. some of this morning we got a bit of good news as we walked up this road behind me that leads up into the mouth of the cave which is just off me about fifty meters to my right we heard the sound of generators and that's a good thing because we haven't heard that the last several mornings running because the pumps weren't activated today this morning they are that's because we had overnight rain but then it subsided this morning on friday so now they're able to start pumping some of the water and again this is a lot of water through this vast cave network so they're starting to get that water out now which is a good thing but it's still a lot there's a lot to go and there's
6:22 am
a challenge with pumping out that water it's very muddy so there's a possibility of those pumps clogging and the hosing clogging in the pipes clogging so that's something they're looking at very closely another thing they're doing now is they're again surveying the area both in the air we're hearing helicopters up now the cloud cover has lifted so helicopters have been launched to look around the cave area in these hills here in northern thailand what they're looking for something called chimneys these are holes that go down into the cave network most of them some they have found but they are blocks some have gone down all the way they believe into the cave they drop supplies down there they're looking for that again we also know that there's a drill team that's looking for a possible location where they can drill down from the top of the hill into the cave so a lot of operations going on in that front and also semi with the prime minister is here he came about forty five minutes ago early he wasn't supposed to arrive until just now this is his first visit to this mini village it's been set up right outside the cave mouth he is here he's been getting multiple briefings he's
6:23 am
actually in the cave mouth mouth area right now we expect him to come back and again get more briefings from different groups there are many many groups here military police park services and also internationals the american american troops are here a british diving specialist team is here laos officials are here so lot of people to get briefings from but he's still here right now and he's been here about forty five minutes and will probably get some more briefings come through as he walks through this camp. as you are talking them into go ahead the picture is in the box next to you of them trying to clear the water out these caves and wonder how long will it take to on clogg cave network to the point where they can take this to the next stage that is the big question and it's a very difficult question because when you look at this cave network it undulates so you have pockets that could you know fill up very easily with water because there's a you know i dip in it so fill up with water but then there will be
6:24 am
a hill and there won't be any water in that part so you have to drain as you go if you will so they have to kind of go work their way steadily and also this cave branches out in two different directions so they have two different directions that they have to work with to set me so it's very difficult to see how long to figure out how long it's going to take to drain it out what they're focused on right now is that base there's a basin at the mouth of the cave that flooded you know we came here earlier in the week and it wasn't that's where their operations were kind of being centered at going into the cave from there that was flooded a couple of days ago now it's slowly going down so they're making progress there but they still need to go very far back into the cave they believe that the boys and their coach could be in this area that's about five six kilometers in they haven't been able to make it there the furthest they've gone is three kilometers but again that's assuming they're going in the right directions and it's a lot of you know guesswork if you will but there is trying to get these drilling operations and the draining there trying to at least get some clues as to which direction they might have gone. to leave it there for now. at least nine

defiant ever boastful president donald trump came to take credit for thirteen thousand new jobs in wisconsin they wanted to do it someplace now in the united. and. i immediately thought of the state of wisconsin but the president remains a man under pressure he's born chandler and he should just go home no one wants him here. twenty twenty are coming for you you're going to be gone he's under fire over the russia probe with one former aide in jail and more indicted over a growing trade war with iconic u.s. companies like harley davidson planning to move operations overseas to avoid new tariffs and over immigration where even some of his own supporters object to a now rescinded policy of separating children from their undocumented parents keep the families together keep the don't separate the fans but part i think that's a good thing but he keeps giving his diehard supporters what they want as he does
6:27 am
here near milwaukee announcing a new factory and thirteen thousand jobs for the taiwanese manufacturer foxconn among his supporters there is a backlash against the backlash i love his policies i think is doing great things for the country. almost everything i don't like his rhetoric alla time but i really see things shaping out for america when trump is criticized his supporters are energized an excellent job he's not backing down he's fallen through on what he said he's going to door. doesn't back down from that support helps explain why many republicans like wisconsin governor scott walker and house speaker paul ryan are standing by the president trump's republican party needs all the support it can get to retain control of congress particularly in midwestern swing states like wisconsin which trump won two years ago are you going to vote in
6:28 am
november. of course he wants you to vote for republicans are you going to do that absolutely the president supporters are resilient he won the presidency despite losing the popular vote and has never had a majority if you're going to bring in polls but polls do show that about nine in ten. republican supports the president and they are likely to be pleased by things like his plans he would appoint a new conservative supreme court justice and it's a trade war doesn't do you really economy is there a sense like this one we're open for business made in the usa it's all happening and it's happening very very quickly we've created three point four million jobs since the election including over three hundred thousand manufacturing jobs despite his troubles the president is taking advantage of any chance to show he's bringing jobs home especially to key voting battleground states like this one john hendren al-jazeera pleasant wisconsin. i have least four hundred fifty flights have
