5:06 am
of a session. punters placed bets on the team scoring on the low forty eight all about fifty people. then. went out on monday. an hour would tell the bookmakers to passively alist school being under forty eight because he knew the session to be fixed. it's very easy for them to underperform and not score as many always want to get out and make it look very natural. to watch them play thirteen times that india just criticized players for accepting bribes. some players are but the feeling that if i just fix a spot or i don't score in the normal i'm not doing something wrong because i'm not fixing a match. one player is being investigated by the i.c.c. full session six he said when it doesn't affect results or not so i was
5:07 am
a problem. come so come the sort of move after there was result to some not me a lot of them are due to not be the well was going to go to go down the other night but by then that the are do you got them to. or no i don't know because both of them were not but i've come as a put on the lot of comments that there. were no other metrics yet but that i thought that we had one guy a guy says i'm coming with the america. the first fix contained in them and all files is the ground the calls itself the home of cricket. matches between two of the world's leading international teams.

5:10 am
this bracket would be a major. behold there was a made. no effort to prevent. if i don't know if you go up i think the book up to. the moment of. the massacre. messed up because. it's very difficult the full cost of the made over is good to be bold because the best when do these really just on the edge of the level. so just go no way of accounting for it. and this is advised the international cricket council we showed him the full monella files including the names of those back to enjoying a fix names that for now we are withholding. any time surprising to me
5:11 am
one definitely wasn't because i know in the i.c.c. best of gates and before and adam in an interview room for several hours. a couple of names i'm not entirely surprised about isaac but that's. probably because that's some crossover with some of the information i'm saying here that i've. been privy to in the past so it's not hugely surprising. betty is illegal in india yet there are more than one hundred thousand bookmakers across the country in the betting markets has been valued at more than sixty billion u.s. dollars even schoolboys in india are seen with their book is number on the mobile phones. it's become a lot of the system has become a people feel good about it. this illegal cookie. operation is only known about by
5:12 am
word of mouth. if you want to place a bet in india you go to a friend who will introduce you. and you have an account set up. behind. the favoring tyranny. of the bookies get all its on the team scoring under or over a certain number of runs during a session of overs or hear. that cellphone did or rather than placed over the internet. no money pastas hands additionally when the bet is laid the messenger brings you your money will collect so money it's all based on trust and knowing where you live if you don't cough up. there to be very very america very. some bookmakers wept with max fixing syndicates to create a market for sessions betting. they have created these session betting because to

5:15 am
of the fixed session meaning he gets it right. there are some names there which will just blow people out also. but some of the others named. i've only heard whispers about them and nothing really particularly concrete so it's a little bit eyebrow raising for me to see the names this is here. i have seen everest born the day my b. match fixing at the lower levels of this world but it doesn't touch the delayed us that this is clearly provably wrong. we have evidence of key players such as hansie cronje for instance and others recruited. in two thousand and six received a life baton for taking both and a hundred thousand dollars for match fixes in india. then hunsicker on the episode happened those are the loot is open. coming in and trying

batsman admitted fixing matches are the views my position as a professional sportsman but choosing to accept money in fixing. any player who's out there no matter how strong is no matter how righteous he is is always open at a weak point to be approached and people will keep on praying to your managers to your friends because they feel that they can it was a bit of time you have players in every national team. in part to win all calls an unnamed english cricket a. lot or don't we think. and further evidence of menow is wrote in fixing international cricket you've got a large chunk of the history of the gang. pushed me question. a journey of person does. my great grandfather he was the slave of the lead

5:26 am
a lot of the syndicate heads lost the match fixes are based to buy and that's where the orders are coming from. cricket's popularity is growing in the u.a.e. and so are the opportunities for the match fixes base that. the no files include evidence of several fixes in the emirates they were carried out during a series of test matches between england and pakistan. as usual and all calls the bookmaker beforehand. it's a fix first session of ten overs. i don't know.

the score will be below the market prediction for the fixed ten of a session and he adds a second part of the fix. thought of going on. the last of the. will be a maid with no runs scored an hour's predictions our actors. said exactly as he suggests this is clearly somebody else since the evidence the cannot reject. the next test match is in abu dhabi. to get the details. but.
5:28 am
it's a fix for a ten over session. they will score below the market prediction and no more than two rounds will be scored in the last over of the session. such changes in the pace of the game all subtle and for spectators unnoticeable during a much lost in five days. ninety i was in and. so up. won all two i was here all that. and. the ten thousand as we cannot actually scoring runs probably would even think is match fixing. now calls the bookmaker again for a second fix during the same test match. now just before the start of the innings. you're not allowed.
5:29 am
it's a repeat of the previous fakes a tenth of a session low score last over amanda. the fix is to retain. the full mean i there often involving sign play as. the third test of the series is back in two by. the noddings in yet another fix. the pattern is familiar fix sessions of ten overs the score below the market
5:30 am
prediction and the last of the ten it was. once again in the now as information is correct. and you've got to fix is in the same gang. and the six nations three test matches. which is rather stunning. because test matches are not supposed to be vulnerable to match faces us while the i.c.c. always told us. test cricket is pure it's pedestal tainted by corruption. in. the finals include photographs as well as odeo recordings. on the night of the fakes in the third test in the following a member of the pakistan squad was in the lobby of the ground tires hotel. he met a month described by all souls who was in the hotel at the time as a d.

5:32 am
is investigating. in two thousand and twelve three lanka close to the twenty twenty will cup where each team goals twenty overs per match. the well's top teams were staying in hotels in the capital colombo. so women now antisocial. men are is seen alongside some of the world's most celebrated cricket stands. there is no suggestion that any of the plays in these photographs are involved in corrupt activities. and she was in the background until such time as you guys in a conversation this is a tactic that's very well nine. pages and now misses here is where the top level players. here are.
5:33 am
probably the greatest player. it is disturbing that the most famous for playing cricket there are clearly should have been the reason they exist. bernie. annealed no of. course got. the extra india captain who got down sammy of the. we've got chris go up the explosive his character. and now be targeting senior players. because the health crisis when addressing his own thought what that team's going to do in a match particularly batting players who potentially can. significantly. alter run rights during matches. is
5:34 am
a very high price for people and then top it off we have n.d. visualize the destroying coach and a selector. and he bickles said he was completely unaware of man hours identity and that no approach was made to the idea that he to test match fixing and the way it's infiltrated cricket. is no evidence that any of those players will captains are new i come from watch marginal but that was when else intention was if you can control the field apply the central fix. the i.c.c. is anti corruption unit deploys undercover officials to watch out for match fixes at major tournament it's. now is behaving suspiciously and that is something which is i.c.c. sports and should be able to. notice and challenge you know. why is that allowed to happen why the i.c.c. say allowing somebody to the hague suspiciously around players.
5:35 am
our investigation suggests that some players of the twenty twenty well were involved in corruption. the recordings reveal that minoa gave finished his bookie operation details of at least three fixes during the tone of. one was a match in the group stages. and now is right yet again. we hear and try to school this is the session this is the betting market. he predicts absolutely vietcong
5:36 am
accurately the outcome. the manana follow show that match fixing does not be an old formats of cricket including one day internationals. in which each side goes fifty over this. idea as a puppy as a six because as huge t.v. audience says here is amount of punters is very soon it's a twenty twenty also runs a space to be scored. run races have gone through the roof in recent years again and all the punters are expecting those runs. in two thousand and eleven the o.d.i. will comp is held in sri lanka bangladesh and india. the files contain the recording of a phone call made by minako to an unnamed player just before the world cup's dogs. are going to. and. then on.
5:37 am
a forensic speech scientists examined the recording which appears to show the now is sending money to an england player. the analysis concluded that the recording had not been tampered with. enough. that it. is that it. even. in all. getting a vote but i am. getting it or.
5:38 am
you. want me ok. al-jazeera approached the player believed to be speaking with the now he denied that the conversation took place and suggested the recording was a fabrication. the recordings include evidence of fixes in five matches during the two thousand and eleven o.d.i. will cup one involved england and south africa. i've not. been a. letter. to you i'm out of time and i will be more neither. are you. in the now as particular as accuracy. even the full costs of the
5:39 am
tent over of one of these brackets is going to be banned so it is only one run off and. that's the disturbing the. prophecy has been fulfilled exactly is this person is a. branch back out again are the details of the fix is always a range of the last moment there but it isn't a bucket of ice they are. no matter where you are why years after that now you know. there's no fix being arranged now cools calgary's bookmakers in the morning to let them know. we did. it. that not all of an hour's fixing work turns out as planned.
5:40 am
them in our files also show that another fix was planned during england's series against pakistan in the u.a.e. . for them. that. i thought of. the were in the event the session fix did not happen because the batsman scored one run too many. that could happen i suppose human error or the best guess for calcified heads when he's trying to defend. but even that was just what brought out it's quite extraordinary. the man our files describe fixes in fifteen international
5:41 am
matches six test matches six one day internationals and three t twenty world cup games suggests endemic widespread corruption in the game across all formats of the game and our correctly predicted twenty five to twenty six outcomes in fifteen matches. who has got a large chunk of the history of the gang wishes to be questioned. we took them in our files to a u.k. based company specializing in sports betting analysis. after examining the statistics it concluded that the chances of the scores predicted by menow are happening without fixing the matches. would be nine point two million to one. what is going on how on earth do you account for these. eventuality is all coming out exactly as for. nine point two million to one. that is mind
5:42 am
blowing. the analysis took into consideration the weather. condition of the wickets and previous head to head encounters at the same venue. for it to be . defies belief really. we also took the manaul files to another sports betting consultancy. its calculation was based solely on statistical probabilities. it concluded that the of minnows for cost comes. with a thirty three million to one. for these outcomes to being fulfilled exactly as full cost is crucial to winning the lottery it's. almost miraculous is it possible that the petitions could come true without the
5:43 am
complicity of the player as. it is almost impossible to believe. that's now as a crystal ball or is some sort of time travel. reality problems for aziz all of them if you have money you will do anything. the cricket world has and not about match fixing when as a match fixing story breaks. don't ride says the administration and x. plaza very quick to try and stem to outside rubbish. and i think that's a huge problem because if you're not listening to the evidence then you've got no chance of actually cutting out as serious credibility threats the guy. due to the seriousness of the allegations al jazeera has uncovered it is planning to provide interpol with a copy of the manalo files. this is
5:44 am
a matter of systemic criminality and it deserves something far more serious than to be denied with or without rights scientists are not up and i want to support. an investigation involving global obama's crime and global sport betting nice to have a coordinated law enforcement response. mcgregor's their money. in my view the first documentary has put so much of a break on the rails i took these two sides to the millions of people who watch cricket innocently but that doesn't mean he hasn't been replaced doesn't mean there's another one out there right now two or three of them analyse out their own . book or going to the game.

police confirm eleven people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a pittsburgh synagogue u.s. president to the attack an act of pure evil. saudi arabia pushes back against turkey's extradition demands saying those suspected of killing jamal khashoggi must be tried in riyadh the leaders of turkey russia france and germany joined forces on syria calling for a ceasefire around rebel held to be preserved and far right candidate. for victory in brazil's ronald's vote could rival fernando dad stage a dramatic comeback. with the sport not for the first time in his career christiane or not the produce is something special to send event is further clear at the top of the italian league.
5:50 am
u.s. president says a shooting at a pittsburgh synagogue is an evil and acts city officials have confirmed at least eleven people died in the attack which happened during a baby naming ceremony in the neighborhood of squirrel hill six of those including four police officers were injured. my heart breaks for the members of the jewish community. today pennsylvania mourns with you. similar to some has absolutely no place in our commonwealth any attack on one community of pennsylvania is an attack against every community in pennsylvania and i want the jewish community across the commonwealth and across the country to know that we stand in support of you as we together mourning this senseless violence. well joining me now i want house correspondent kimberly whole kit and kimberly vera
5:51 am
the details emerging to paint a clearer picture of the sequence of events when this synagogue was attacked. local officials have been briefing reporters the public as they continue to try and figure out what happened and how this baby naming ceremony went so horribly wrong the latest death toll now to eleven fatalities six injured including police officers that we understand were engaged in some sort of a firefight with the suspect who of course now is in custody i can tell you that the president donald trump has been briefed he has been receiving record of the white house regular updates from the director of counterterrorism mike burnett the president for his part making it clear that this is an act of hades in which america will not tolerate such acts take a listen to this wicked act of mass murder is pure
5:52 am
evil. hard to believe. frankly something that is imaginable our nation and the world are shocked and stunned by the grief. this was an asymmetric act you wouldn't think this would be possible in this day and age but we just don't seem to learn from the past. oh the f.b.i. have also been briefing reporters than they have said that they believe the gunman was acting alone we learn more about the suspects. well we are continuing to learn about the suspect including the fact that prior to this shooting we do believe that he posted on social media denouncing jewish nonprofit groups that protect refugees this is something that has come to
5:53 am
light as well as the fact that he may have been inside the synagogue for at least twenty minutes before he opened fire with what we believe was a long gun the sort of recalling of the situation and what they have seen is something that has been very painful for the police officers who have been inside and as these details emerge so too are the pronouncements or rather denouncements of hate coming from the political leaders in this country not limited to just the president's family including a vodka trump who we know is a practicing orthodox jew she did issue a statement saying that america is stronger than acts of a deprived bigot and anti-semite all good americans stand with the jewish people to oppose acts of terror and share the horror over the massacre in pittsburgh but certainly there is noting from not just civil rights groups human rights groups but also increasingly politicians sending out statements saying in fact that well this
5:54 am
is certainly incident that is catching the media's attention it is by no means isolated and there are smaller acts that are under reported that occur daily in the united states and so there are now is this focus on congressional responsibility and political leaders in terms of what they can do to try and make sure that this is something that is not only contained but potentially and hopefully even eradicated in the united states for now thank you very much for the latest on this story from washington kimberly. well joining me now is max abrams an assistant professor of political science and will cease and universe. he joins me of a skype from boston thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us what are your initial thoughts your initial thoughts on the circumstances of this horrific attack in pittsburgh and indeed what motivates an attack like this.
5:55 am
well terrorism by its very definition it's not a political tactic but what exactly the political fallout is is often not entirely clear you know there are all sorts of different kinds of terrorism in the world including in the united states and they seem tobe different affects so for example when it's in islam mr track when it's a jihad and maybe somebody affiliated with isis for example the political right in the united states tends to benefit i think that one of the main reasons for trump success was he was able to reassure the american public that in the in the face of this isis threat that there was going to be a strong hand to the executive however then there was that spate of mail bombings and it looks like that the c.e.o. is some right wing lunatic who is actually pro crop at least on his vehicle he had
5:56 am
