at least one young man there are several others being questioned but with quite clear fall rights uncompromising. hateful views of others i mean does it surprise you is there a rise in the number of these sorts of young individuals or are we just noticing them more it's definitely not surprising we are seeing a rise i think one of the most depressing things about this is its utter predictability and it's very similar to other kinds of attacks that we've seen it's just escalation and we're seeing larger numbers of deaths and and but you know it's not that different from from the pittsburgh shooting from the sikh temple shooting from the from from the shooting of african-americans in a church we're seeing again and again these kinds of violence in very peaceful places and being in acted. in a climate of rising hate why what is enabling that climate then of rising hate.
10:33 pm
there are many things going on and it's you know it's just like when we saw a rash of school shootings in the us some decades ago there's no there's no actual formula that that can predict this but we know there are on the one hand there's a rising legitimacy of white supremacy rising from political leaders from kind of populist anti you know anti immigrant sentiments that are out there in political discourse much more commonly and social media enables these kinds of conspiracy theories and deep radicalization to take place in in ways that often aren't detectable until pretty close to the to the actual violence and so so individuals can be much more. radicalized in online way that makes it harder for people to detect what's happening what you say it is it may be too simplistic to say that
10:34 pm
it's the political environment the tone of politics today certainly in in europe and north america that is perhaps adding fuel to this kind of hateful rhetoric. that the political climate has definitely added fuel to it i think we can't you know draw a direct causal line but it certainly legitimized added fuel to mean when you have language that dehumanizes migrants are immigrants that you know depicts immigrants in really negative dangerous ways that deploys language of invasion of infection you know all the kinds of language we've heard about migrants and refugees that feeds this this kind of radicalization and fear of the other that is at the root of a lot of these white supremacist movements cynthia idris thank you very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us from washington thank you. that china has passed

economic growth could drop to six percent this year the lowest it's been in almost thirty years china's economic growth would be the envy of many other countries but it's still slowing complicated by a number of other factors the trade war with the united states among them but china's leaders can't blame previous governments for their problems because for almost seventy years there's been only one party that has ruled this country adrian brown al jazeera beijing. the drive by shooting of a reputed mathy abbas is raising fears of a return to mob killings like those seen on the sopranos t.v. program and hollywood movies police fare the murder of frankie carlin will provoke revenge attacks as gabriel is under reports from new york considered one of the greatest movies of all time the one nine hundred seventy two big screen classic the godfather depicted the italian american muster wars in new york. not good meeting

you liz. now the scenes are coming back in real life friend jesco cali was gunned down wednesday night by unknown assailants outside his home in a posh neighborhood in staten island. he exits his house but he has a conversation with an individual in front of that residence and that individual at some point in time it's only about a minute into it pulls out a firearm and shots are fired known by his nickname of frankie boy he was widely believed to be the head of the gambino crime family unlike high profile mob bosses of years past cali was different he kept a very low profile one of the first time ever appeared on the front pages of the local papers was with the news of his death gambino boss whacked read the headline of the new york post. retired new york police sergeant joseph jack alone says high
10:39 pm
profile mob hits have been rare the past twenty years so investigators might have a hard time trying to solve the crime this as a lot of implications because is this within the italian mafia or is it from outside the italian mafia is it another group trying to make the name for themselves there's a lot of working parts here and law enforcement needs that play catch up the last time a mob boss was murdered in new york city was thirty five years ago that's when john gotti ordered the murder of then gambino boss paul castellano outside a manhattan steakhouse gotti was convicted of extortion and cast a lot of murder in one thousand nine hundred two ten years later he died in prison . mob violence has subsided since then and that might have led many new yorkers to feel a false sense of security. fast food restaurant now the.

10:42 pm
christchurch mosque shootings in new zealand the team had just arrived at the mosque for friday prayers when they heard gunshots the team stayed on the bus and later made their way through a park to the headley oval cricket ground the third test against new zealand which had been shared tool to start the on saturday has now been cancelled not only. because you're not here i'm thankful we're very lucky because we were not inside that place we saw it from outside like watching a video like in the movies we saw many people coming out bloodied we were in the bus for about eight to ten minutes we had our heads down in the bus just in case there was firing and it promises to be a purgatory day for the cutter world cup as fee for president gianni and frontino continues he's push for plans to expand the tournament as council is meeting in miami to discuss increasing it from thirty two to forty eight teams that would require carter to share it with neighboring countries probably oman and kuwait
10:43 pm
because it's currently being blockaded by saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt have already been noises of support in miami. yeah i think i've been there before there as long as it was a well studied on as well photo. that i think congo would have supported this correspondent and the gallagher is in miami anyway what are we expecting at the feet the meeting today well they're looking at this eighty one page feasibility report that wants to expand the twenty twenty two world cup hosted by qatar from thirty two to forty eight teams of his was it gets complicated the suggestion from fee for is that neighboring nations including as you said saudi arabia bahrain and u.a.e. host those extra games those sixteen extra nations but obviously those three countries are blockading qatar at the moment so that becomes very complicated the
10:44 pm
other suggestion is that q wait and i'm on host those countries but again this is not a simple decision for a favor to make because amman and kuwait don't have any facilities at the moment we're only two way eight years away from that world cup and they may not even meet fief is human rights conditions so this is it would be an oversimplification to say this is a done deal we're not expecting a final decision from favre in miami today that will only happen in june when they meet again in paris but is the important part of all this fever has said that any decision about the twenty twenty two world cup will be made in conjunction with the host nations qatar who in essence may have to give up some exclusivity who may make less money with these extra sixty nations going to these other countries so no done deal at the moment decisions not going to be made for a few months ago away but we do understand that some qatari officials will be in the meeting that will be out later on today and they got together in miami thank

10:49 pm
again welcome to live from doha i'm martin dennis also coming up still not satisfied there are ailing presidents there longer running for another term but our jury and keep up their demands for change. israeli airstrikes target girls there is rockets fired at television for the first time in five years. health fears him a laser as tons of toxic chemicals are found dumped in a river. but first it's been described as one of new zealand's darkest days they've been two attacks in christchurch targeting muslim worshipers during friday prayers forty nine people were killed in the gun attack this is the country's worst ever mass shooting now the police have charged one person already with ill appear in court on
10:50 pm
saturday new zealand's prime minister. has called it a terrorist attack. but tara begins our coverage with this report the this is the scene shortly after a gunman opened fire at a mosque in christ church the bushes some injured themselves all surrounded by the bodies of family members and friends of the owner the. as the wounded were rushed to hospital police were arresting one of the suspects in a busy suburban area in another part of the city they say they say for disabled one of two bombs found in the car that he was driving. early the city's main al new mosque was targeted during friday prayers by a white man wearing military style uniform and a camera mounted on his helmet here but. what i would not talk with here looking or
10:51 pm
not that we. started shooting and the people of the. undershirt in under me. that's a good insight and you go one by one everybody and some people that the gunman live streamed his attack on facebook as he indiscriminately opened fire on more than two hundred worshippers i was hearing that a shooting after a shooting of the shooting it went on. six minute or more in. could hear screaming and the crying in. some people you know drop dead shortly after that shooting there was a similar attack on worshippers at lynnwood mosque about ten minutes away police have arrested a number of suspect think looting an australian born man new zealand's prime minister said they weren't on any security watch list and said new zealand had been
10:52 pm
the target of what she described as a terrorist attack because it was a diverse nation that welcomed migrants we new zealand. we were not a tag it because we are a safe harbor for those who fight. we were not true isn't for the sake of violence because we can darn rices them because we're an on clay for extremism. we were chosen for the very facts that we are none of these things australia's prime minister is also a pulled and shocked we stand here and condemn absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist right wing violent terrorist. that is typed in the logs stolen the logs in a vicious murder suspect. that has climbed so many new zealand's police haven't ruled out the possibility of more suspects being at launch and
10:53 pm
a warning muslims to stay away from mosques nation wind we have staff around the country ensuring. that everyone is keep safe and that includes. the fairness and special tactics groups right across the country being very vigilant and having a presence around the wall of their mosques to ensure nothing occurrence the national threat level has been raised from low to high as police politicians and the public come to terms with the worst and most shocking attack they've ever experienced victoria gate and be algis they're letting go live now to christ in new zealand our correspondent is andrew thomas and andrew young not very far away a top lawyer from the alan moore mosque which is where the vast majority of those killed were actually praying. that's
10:54 pm
right marty and i'm at the code in that the police have established they did this shortly after the attacks on as close as you can get to the animal now it's about three hundred meters in the right hand side of that road and as you say it was the first mosque to be attacked there were forty one people killed in that mosque of about we think three or four hundred people who were friday prayers at the most inside at that time and then the gunman as he drove off you drive down this road shooting as he went i'm told by somebody who sold the scene and he was shooting at people as they were even fleeing down the road away from the scene that he had just created and there's a car just a little way behind the camera which has its back window completely smashed it was shot as the gunman drove off and he drove off we now know of course to the lynwood mosque about a ten minute drive although we think it took him a bit longer to get whatever reason and then he carried out the second attack there and the number killed their father stands at seven forty nine people dead as you say just. prime minister saying this is the darkest day new zealand has ever had
10:55 pm
and it really i mean that that's almost stating the obvious because the zealot has never ever had anything like this is never had a terrorism incident let alone one that has killed forty nine people as they prayed and the muslim population in new zealand is only fifty thousand or so strong so a pretty small population here of course is only about five million so it's a fairly small population even fifty thousand muslims this is the second maybe biggest city in new zealand it is a small city four hundred thousand in total so the number of muslims here in christchurch will be pretty small a significant proportion over them will have been they small spear big one under the lynwood mosque while these attacks were going on so just about every person of movement faith in christ church will know somebody personally who has been killed or injured in this attack it just does not cannot stress enough how devastating this will be for that community in christchurch and how. for the psyche of news
10:56 pm
either the country where this whole thing just does not happen i mean not that happens anywhere really but here particularly it really is a sort of quiet country the quapaw of the world and this will really really rock this country so it's foundation so you have a new you have a community you have a city you have a nation in shock still one wonders then how new zealand which is so unfamiliar. luckily for them they're so unfamiliar with this kind of of incident do you wonder how they get to riyadh we know that they have heightened security national security and presumably new zealanders will be quite astonished at the sight of so many armed police on the streets. yeah it's an extremely unusual sight you can see the place behind me now they're carrying big guns you don't see that in new zealand this is a country that i've been to many times i and it's a country where security is very light frankly there are planes you can get on a new zealand without going through airport security the propeller planes that
10:57 pm
don't expect you to go through security which is very unusual nowadays in the world politicians will corral without protection i was at an event earlier this year which is the prime minister she walked across the road very casually as far as i could see no security guards around her this is not a country that expects to need high security it does not expect these sorts of things to happen ever and for something as huge as this to affects the population here on a specific population and be so malicious lee targeted at that population in what as i say the prime minister has described on the quickly as a terrorism attack well it's just not what this country is about and you've heard it all day on all channels people saying again and again and this is not what new zealand is about it's an open inclusive society that wealth of people from all over the world are done so many reports about the refugees for example coming to australia who are trying to find a home they're sent away by australia new zealand wants to take those people it welcomes refugees with open arms just made a lot of that iran she said this is
10:58 pm
a welcoming country and a many many of the people who would have been inside that mosque many of the people who would have been killed would have been relatively recent arrivals to new zealand i'm speculating but in all likelihood among them were the refugees and it's those people for many many parts of the world who've come here found a haven here in new zealand and then did up missing that death in new zealand in the most shocking way and actionable and you just missed thank you andrew thomas reporting live there from christ church. well i've been speaking to cynthia addresses for a fessor of education sociology at the american university she's also the author of the extreme gone mainstream and she says these attacks are a symptom of a changing political climate. it's definitely not surprising we are seeing a rise i think one of the most depressing things about this is its utter predictability and it's very similar to other kinds of attacks that we've seen it's
10:59 pm
just escalation we're seeing larger numbers of deaths and and but you know it's not that different from from the pittsburg shooting from the sikh temple shooting from the from from the shooting of african-americans in a church we're seeing again and again and these kinds of violence in very peaceful places being in acted. in a climate of rising hate there are many things going on and it's you know it's just like when we saw a rash of school shootings in the u.s. some decades ago there's no there's no actual formula that that can predict this but we know there are on the one hand there's a rising legitimacy of white supremacy rising up from political leaders from kind of populist anti you know anti immigrant sentiments that are out there in political discourse much more commonly and social media enables these kinds of conspiracy theories and deep radicalization to take place in in ways that often aren't
11:00 pm
detectable until pretty close to the to the actual violence and so so individuals can be much more. radicalized in online way that makes it harder for people to detect what's happening meant that the political climate has definitely added fuel to it i think we can't you know draw a direct causal line but it certainly legitimized added fuel to mean when you have language that dehumanizes migrants are immigrants that you know depicts immigrants in really negative dangerous ways that deploys language of invasion of infection you know all the kinds of language we've heard about migrants and refugees that feeds this this kind of radicalization and fear of the other that is at the root of a lot of these white supremacist movements. now laws francesa being held across algeria as demonstrators continue to demand president bush of leakers resignation
