12:00 am
least have urged the public not to share any links to what they and many of us are calling extremely distressing footage but i have to say it is all over the internet at this point through how well is a technology reporter for the washington post who puts this into scope for us now before this event was live streamed on facebook the shooter announce what he was going to do on a website called a chat if you are familiar that's an anonymous message board which is dedicated to free speech but many think it's one of the one of the most vile websites on the internet because of the hate speech that is tolerated there now on eight chan his comments his manifesto the video itself were praised by other anonymous users you might be able to see this comment here the video was then reposed it on youtube now the company came out and said that it is working vigilantly to remove any of that violent footage but you can't really stop people from recording it posted elsewhere it takes takes work and as drew mentioned on reddit one of the most popular websites on the internet it was narrated it was commented on in
12:01 am
a forum called believe it or not watch people die people were narrating the video some praising the shooters sharing screen shots and other links from that event now facebook again this went out on facebook live they released a statement saying our hearts go out to the victims their families and the community affected by the horrendous shootings in new zealand police alerted us to a video on facebook shortly after the live stream commenced and we quickly removed both the shooter's facebook and instagram accounts and the video we're also removing any praise or support for the crime and the shooter or shooters as soon as we are aware we will continue working directly with new zealand police as their response and investigation continues. so there are lot of questions out there for facebook and some of these other big platforms namely how something like this could be live streamed for so long again seventeen minutes the u.k. home secretary for one. is telling these big tech giants you name some of them here
12:02 am
to stop violent extremism being promoted on your platforms take some ownership enough is enough he says now i should say we have seen quite a few people using these platforms for good on a day like this posting messages of support both for new zealand and the muslim community there this woman we noticed she posted this really nice message saying to the muslims in new zealand whatever you need to feel safe we will do all that we can to help now finally craig considine is a sociologist in texas who says that this attack in new zealand hit a nerve for him he shared his thoughts with al-jazeera take a listen in light of the terrorist attacks in new zealand it is more imperative than ever for christians and people of all faith and all conscious to come together in the spirit of brotherhood sisterhood in our common humanity to support and defend muslims when we hear people say muslims are our enemy we must stand up and
12:03 am
condemn it we must respond by saying no muslims are our friends our neighbors our loved ones our doctors our coworkers our lawyers when we hear people say islam hates us we must condemn it and say no we can respond by looking at the qur'an the spirit of the qur'an the compassion in the mercy that we see in this holy book is part of the solution to the world's ills it's time for all of us to rise up in the spirit of peace blessed are the peacemakers so they show inherit the earth peace so we'd also like to hear your thoughts on this story you can send us your comments on twitter using the hash tag eighteen you're screwed. andrew thank you very much for that now let's talk more about the role of social media in these situations we're joined by medea rosaria they are she is the deputy director of the oxford and tonight institute's digital ethics lab at the university of oxford where she's joining us live from very good to have you with us on al-jazeera today the video of
12:04 am
the massacre as has been widely reported was live streamed for seventeen minutes and how could facebook have allowed this to be up for so long so it will deliver the gross i'm sure mr they oh as we've been reporting the live stream of the killing was up on facebook for fifteen minutes how could this have happened. so and it is problematic that video of the other route it was streamed for such a long amount of time. and i think the question is more in the technical side than on the intention of the online service provider in this case we we have to knowledge you know at this point and social media some of those are using it to identify violent content to remove it before it is even shared online it's harder to do this with video which is live stream more should be done and i suspect the
12:05 am
more could be done so indeed this is a glitch a thing or a problem of the knowledge that we have available so far and also perhaps with the policies that we have internally under certain areas company to block the content which is clearly and highly moral issue never be sure and so how you know what do you think facebook you tube these companies are doing right now to make sure that something so incredibly rough a queer not be streamed live again and that people want to be commenting that people will not be allowed to comment cheering on these acts. so i think that we are seeing a new way of us floridian internet and digital technologies for malicious evil uses so far we have seen online service providers like facebook you tube and the other to. be to challenge or to block content to be uploaded online so there is
12:06 am
a control on existing control supported by ai for example to make sure that that content is not uploaded the vine so the when the. user is trying to upload counted which is illegal or immoral that stop it before we have not seen this use of online service provider as we saw it last night we never saw a stream lived. stream to attack on facebook so this is a new user we have to understand how to address those we have seen eighty or so we have seen a similar size live streamed on facebook before have we not. and this shows us the needle there being more than let's say technology or solution in please and we can all think that you want oversight is sufficient to warrant or order counted that is up to the door time on online service providers so the solution come from developing and deploying. to knowledge of the louds the
12:07 am
monitoring and the stopping of our wanted content i should also mention that when we start to monitor content in a massive way we also start to put a huge cup or a potential couple free speech which is the mark of this open pluralistic society is that we want and the games which terrorism is acting so it's important that we also strike a balance between protecting free speech and protecting users from seeing and sharing and research reading material as the one that we have seen last night thank you very much for your time and your expertise on this that is maria rosaria live in oxford thank you. now we want to hear from you on or the stories that we're covering on the news grid you can send us your comments or any of online platforms on twitter use the hash tag a news crew to handle this at a.j. english also on facebook at facebook dot com slash al-jazeera we can send
12:08 am
a message on whatsapp or telegram at plus nine seven four five zero one triple long four nine. let's move on to other news now and present abdelaziz bouteflika had hoped that algerians would stop demanding he step down if he promised not to run for a fifth term he was wrong and the capital and other algerian cities including iran and to the hundreds of thousands of people have been gathering once again some say they want with a free ticket to go others want to complete regime change. as economy is struggling and jobs are hard to get by especially for young people some of them have taken their demands online. you want to be free. we need to be. and we will be. going in i've known in my life one president beautifully i want change immediate change if they don't stand. up. well the protesters have also been demanding that song stay out of algerian politics.
12:09 am
the crowds in the capital algiers have been chanting get out map wrong they accuse french president imagine macron of siding with the flicka after what after he called for a reasonable transition of power in algeria the north african country was of course ruled by france for more than a century from eighteen city. well let's get more on this we're joined by three a lecturer in islamic studies at qatar university very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so the protests are continuing before we get to what the protesters will settle for and whether the government is willing to offer more concessions is what beautifully is offering even constitutional can the president extend his term other than when the country is in a state of war it's unconstitutional and it's not convincing the algerian people who have been protesting for long. people. express
12:10 am
their opinion via one of the students who said we wanted the election without the flipper but we found herself with the flick without invitation yeah she's accepted be there and by then syrian people is totally objective and today's protests. show that and so is this another miscalculation by the algerian government first they put forth a flicker up for a fifth term when that's clearly unacceptable to the people late into the biggest demonstrations we've seen in some thirty years and then they offer this concession again unacceptable are they going to be forced to make more concessions here. i would. think i would wish that the people will move fast towards responding properly to the un syrian called two of the syrian protesters to hand power to them. they want they don't like anyone to act on their behalf.
12:11 am
and neither the french. nor with the fleet in the fleet of the un julian. as they call they would like the algerian people to decide and when you say hand power to the algerian people to the opposition and if so who is their representative there is a point of weakness here in what we see enunciate here they have not seen elected so far a leadership who can stand on behalf of the protesters and claim i had a prison the people so there should be a proper dialogue between the algerian elite between the algerian protesters between the youth that select a representative a sound the representative to the algerian people especially the youth about fifty percent of the below the age of thirty they cannot be represented by someone who is eighty says in his sixty's seventy's or eighty's let alone someone who is able
12:12 am
even to speak to the people so that they have they to listen properly to the. people and that is something that both the opposition and the government does seem to have in common they don't have. a succession plan if it's the government or. a leader who represents all of the opposition i know that's hard it has to be selected by the people there is no one who can claim here i am i can't stand for all the people so everyone we put the political parties in in algeria and they took part in all the political events starting from the a bloody in one nine hundred ninety s. to the first decade of the century up to today those people they can't come together via have been so many gatherings so many meetings or many statements dejected think the proposal by the prove work but they haven't seen elected so far
12:13 am
someone who can speak on behalf of the people maybe this is in the other hand one of the strengths of the people the opposition now is the people is not a party the opposition is not an individual is not a leader it's a large vast majority of the youth who are calling for a proper representation of themselves let them see left of this representation and i would call for the the neighbor and political. actors to see away from putting their impact or their influence on the choice of the people who lead the people choose for themselves and this is democracy that's about it thank you very much have you still have to save up i am proud of what's going on in the area because the military is not taking sides anyone it's indifferent the political parties are making them and the people are raising their
12:14 am
voice is the people you know in a lot of areas and time. very much for your time clearly appreciated that as a catholic university. thank you well gerry remains one of our top trending stories and we have extended coverage of all the developments and analysis on the special page entitled algeria on al-jazeera dot com. now weekly much of return protests along the gaza israel fence have been postponed hours after israel israeli air strikes hit the besieged strip israeli military says some one hundred hamas targets were struck early on friday was in response to a rare rocket attack on the israeli city of fellah vive the exchange of fire headdress fears of an escalation of the conflict in the hood a little of. what happened is a new israeli aggression against gaza out a tweet a series of its crimes including the main one of the continuation of the siege of
12:15 am
the gaza strip our people will continue their struggle to break the siege despite this aggression the resistance is ready to defend its people and is committed to calm as long as the occupation is. let's go now to our correspondent how the force that is joining us live from the israeli side of the gaza barrier fence first friday in nearly a year harry that has been i think so quiet behind you there no protests taking place on the gaza side of the fence because of those rockets being fired into television. that's right it seems that that is the the reason that the the authorities in gaza the hamas controlled gaza strip have decided through the committee of the the great march of return to cancel this friday's protest and as you say we're coming up on the first anniversary at the end of this month of this protest movement there hasn't been a single friday when there hasn't been a protest in all of that time and so it does seem that there is an effort on the hamas side to send some kind of deescalate three signal towards the israelis it's
12:16 am
not for that they want a full escalation towards a conflict hamas is denied being responsible for the the rockets being fired just by the time the israeli military said that it was a mouse and there has been a sort of a concomitant signal from the israelis as well that they're looking to give hamas a way out perhaps because the israeli military has told the israeli media that they think it could have been a technical problem or a mistake of some kind that resulted in this double launch whether that be something to do with actual technology or whether it be to do with perhaps a lower ranking members of hamas firing off these rockets without official sanction so despite the one hundred targets being struck by israel despite those very rare rockets being fired towards tel aviv it looks that both sides are trying to calm the situation and those rockets fired into gaza harry as the egyptian delegation were there at the time holding talks with hamas and we understand that as vai's
12:17 am
warned them warn the egyptian authorities to leave before they launch those airstrikes. that's right the egyptians have been working very hard over many months now to try to get some kind of long term truce deal between israel and hamas and they were in the territory yesterday when i said they were actually having talks at the time that those rockets were launched again according to them adding to the weight of the case that it was not an intentional strike by hamas on television. there are there is now according to islamic jihad and hamas a return to the previous egypt brokered cease fire at least israel does not publicly comment on such matters but certainly there hasn't been any further military activity during daylight hours worth as well talking about the political situation in both places in gaza right now there are protests as there were on thursday people on the streets protesting against price rise against hamas led tax
12:18 am
rises at the same time as hamas has tried to quell the border protests today there are other protests going on more arrests being carried out some stone throwing between supporters of hamas and those demonstrators are pretty feeble atmosphere there and in the ready israeli political scene as well of course we're heading towards elections on the ninth of april that made the calculations of benjamin netanyahu the prime minister all the more difficult doing something forceful enough to satisfy his critics his main challenger benny gantz has been not far from here talking about the need to project greater force and great interest not allowing hamas to set the agenda while at the same time trying to make the calculation not to let things spin out of control towards a full scale war which most analysts agree he doesn't want just a few weeks out from an election mike harris thank you very much for that now that's how i feel as with relation to life on the israel gaza border fence. again do get in touch with us we want to hear from you on all the stories we're covering
12:19 am
send us your comments to any of online platforms on twitter you can use the hash tag news go to handle this at a.j. english also on facebook at facebook dot com slash al-jazeera sends a message on whatsapp or telegram the numbers plus line seven four five zero one triple one four nine well this is the news good and if you're watching on facebook live is born the story for you coming out of an office was bringing attention to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in syria through the paintings that's from our friends at a.j. plus and stay with us on the bridge because we look at the global marches by schoolchildren to my hometown going to action on climate change but can people power make a difference. and i know that the weather still looking quite unsettled for many of us across the middle east the satellite picture is showing this huge blanket of cloud here it's
12:20 am
gradually working its way eastwards but as it works its way away from us it's opening the door for yet more wet weather that's working its way down from europe so forth on saturday then we can expect to see some rain and some snow reports of turkey in that stretches down that coastline of the mediterranean giving some of us some very heavy outbreaks of rain that came as a way there so sunday should be the brushy day for us the temperatures recovering as well beirut up to eighteen degrees that area of rain though works its way eastwards it's here over parts of iraq and iran and stretching down towards us here in doha so in doha them we've seen a few showers but they're clearing so if a saturday should be a good do draw a bright to twenty six degrees will be our maximum but the clouds are gathering again for us on sunday so this chance of seeing a few more showers the winds will be feeding up from the south as well so it could well be quite a dusty day down towards the sort of positive africa of course we've got all so i claim with this is now hit land and it's disintegrating so it's just this no mass of cloud here of mozambique it's already given us a lot of flooding caused
12:21 am
a lot of damage as well and that system is going to continue to pound us with heavy rain as we head through sunday as well. the government you support a believed to have detained maybe a million people in real education comes certainly not grabbing headlines in china only in a while kings of the people's republic it's probably not best just to dismiss everything as propaganda to use propaganda because your abrasive aggressive way of addressing a man to his son challenges chinese finance yes child you wrote something critical of president xi avoid i said this would not be regarded well by the western press up help tech head on al-jazeera isn't the problem for your kind that they really don't have a health question mark over him but he does have a corruption question mark or really doesn't look good for the image this official has not going to do any will have known about is going to and he will get why there's a lot of disillusionment with the us across the globe. is cool for the brakes
12:22 am
doesn't build confidence a break spoke to join me made the house and all of the front of my guests from around the world take the hot seat and we debate the week's top stories and think issues here on al-jazeera.
12:23 am
with the news gridlock on air and streaming online and this is what's trending on my. on al-jazeera dot com the top story remains the terrorist attack on two new zealand two mosques in the new zealand city of christchurch that's left forty nine people killed the suspects praised donald trump in a document that he wrote and released in connection to the massacre world leaders condemning the attacks another story that's trending as is israel launching air attacks around a hundred air strikes on gaza after rockets were fired at tel aviv all that and much more you'll find on al-jazeera dot com. the around the world are holding protests demanding government leaders take rapid action to stop climate change ten thousand students took part in
12:24 am
a demonstration in los on switzerland and some of the rallies were held in australia hong kong and in the french and belgian capitals the movement started as a solo protest in sweden by sixteen year old schoolgirl going to the feds jamil was at a demonstration in the indian capital new delhi. these students have gathered here in central new delhi for the strike for climate action joining students and other indian cities and across the world india now is felt the effects of climate change for several years rising temperatures flooding in some parts of the country and drought in others now in the decades before the students are even born the dominant economic policy of governments and policymakers has been economic development sometimes at the expense of the environment something the students say they want changed climatic problem because the government needs to assess the. weather denying the basic facts and the truth is not likely to be won not sure. which
12:25 am
actually taken the side and give us all to do. with the name of mentioned there actually cutting down the students are at least a few years shy from being able to vote in the upcoming national elections they still want to make sure their voices are heard hoping to remind and influence those who are voting and those being voted for the climate change is something that affects everyone well those sentiments were echoed at a rally in london and a haywood. several thousand protesters taking part in this day of action right under the noses of british politicians out by parliament on parliament square really calling for action on climate change they say nothing is being done or not enough is being done to try to tackle climate change and unless action is taken right now it will be too late for them and the generations to come and what kind of time we have to go to reza when the student people so we need to go to the to the street if we stay in college it doesn't change this protest has been
12:26 am
inspired by the actions of course at the a girl who protested last year in sweden no not cowardice escalated into this something of a movement these young people and students saying that enough is enough and the governments around the world have to act now well while the students out on the streets demanding change nations at a u.n. environment summit have agreed to significantly reduce single use plastics over the next ten years it was one of several resolutions on the consideration at the gathering in kenya catherine reports from nairobi. it's on the sidelines of the united nations and vironment assembly of baghdad i'm holding here was actually wore one such a nail it does. is hard to craft from nigeria will than by women from hyacinth a plant that has invaded waterways in more than fifty countries across the wild including kenya where the u.n. summit is being held at the plant of actually a very rich and a and is
12:27 am
a greenhouse gas so what people would say you know what we're trying to do here is actually in. methane emissions to the atmosphere because if it's in. an environment conducive for the generation of methane that's bad to the environment climate change greenhouse gases and pollution have been top of the agenda in this we can all meeting. in such events innovations to deal with climate change and pollution are often split like this trust me to use to check the quality of reading so luxo how does it work. yes it's a small device for measuring dangerous pollutants in there so it has more sensors inside but measure the dangers crassus fine particles which are dangerous for your health. using these compact the y.c. as the authorities come install them in large quantities and get a very good picture of the air quality situation in a city so this is
12:28 am
a very important u.n. summit and has a statement delegates who are here a saying that more needs to be done to mitigate what he's an environmental crisis delegates here have been told that africa is only responsible for four percent of the global greenhouse gas emission yet more than sixty percent of its population is affected that's why the continents rollie mitigating climate change is crucial the u.n. wants whilst the governments to keep a promise of raising a hundred billion dollars. annually for five years from twenty twenty told poor countries adopt to a hotter planet the specifics of this finding will be discussed father in the climate change summit to be held in new york in september the global g.d.p. is roughly about seventy percent private sector and thirty percent public sector so we're trying to solve one hundred percent problem with thirty percent of the money that's never going to work so we really need to focus on private finance and once
12:29 am
you create the right conditions for investment which is possible to policy prescriptions policy interventions why government then private finance will flow in a bridge where. heads of state who attended this u.n. environment assembly say to the world is facing an environmental crisis. we need to be very specific in terms of how to reduce emissions in our own national strategies with our businesses our investors via our laws we need them to have specific solutions in the end delegates made several resolutions including a plan for zero tolerance on plastic pollution in our oceans and a legal treaty to ban plastics from entering the sea but the decisions made here depend on the political will of individual governments catherine saudi al jazeera nairobi. let's get more all of this now we're joined by patrick for coersion he's the c.e.o. of the global center on adaptation and he's joining us live from the hague very
12:30 am
good to have you with us on the news chris so we're looking at all the lies activism by thousands of students around the world world leaders gathering in nairobi hopeful that either of these things will make a difference now that they'll affect policy making or implementation. you know actually thank you allison for having me on the show first secondly i think this is a very important day why do you students these young people they're on the right side of history climate action it's happening now is a very serious matter and we have to solutions in hand to course to to change the course of direction on the planet so what's happening in nairobi is of course important where world leaders are gathering for africa what is even more important is to translate the energy of the youth into concrete action that's what's really at stake a moment mystification when you say we have the solutions i know this is
12:31 am
a very very big question but what they and if they don't people are on the right side of history well who's standing in the way of these who will watch is standing in the way of these solutions which are available. you know so few only a few years ago we as adults we agreed in paris to reduce carbon pollution that it would not increase above two degrees celsius of global warming while in fact we're not on track our emissions are way too high last year twenty eighteen was again an increase in carbon emissions hence we need to drastically change some but the good thing of the story is there are solutions and there are solutions in place it's happening where in miami may is so juarez and people of miami they're taxing themselves to invest in smart a seawalls working with nature similar situations are happening from indonesia to
12:32 am
to india to to africa there are plenty of actions happening but an important message is this it's not only about reducing carbon emissions given that climate change is happening today we also need to adapt today to these impacts i think that's the urgency of the matter there's no time to wait and so how do you make what's happening in miami and in indonesia the norm rather than the exception. thank you so first of all we need to energy of the youth movement to really drive his agenda secondly we need leadership at all levels from the dinner table to the boardroom from the boardroom to houses of parliament at all levels we need to engage in not just governments but also business leaders they need to make it as a mainstream element of the business and there are examples there are progressive
12:33 am
institutional investors pension funds we have decided own new to invest in climate smart development those chart types of changes in the real economy are vital for this movement to really succeed in concrete action at scale and at speed but all in all i'm all optimistic that this decision it is doable this is the growth story of the twenty first century and is any of this needs to focus lastly going to change deniers minds especially when you have donald trump in the white house well we have donald trump in the white house and i'm optimistic that perhaps he at some point also will see the light that climate impacts are real why twenty eighty we have seen three hundred billion in u.s. dollars of cost economic cost in the u.s. on the people of america you see in red states and blue states you see actions
12:34 am
happening so given that the more this a war is off those walls are driving his agenda forward i'm optimistic that at some point also the federal government will pick up speed mystification it is great to get your thoughts and your optimism on this we do appreciate your time that is patrick the courage and live in the hague thank you. now you can find all of our climate coverage by searching for climate on al jazeera dot com there you'll find more on the latest study which shows that air pollution is actually killing more people than smoking every year. to get in touch for the as on all of these stories send us your thoughts on to any of our online platforms on twitter use the hash tag news grid our handle is at a.j. english we're also on facebook dot com slash al-jazeera or send us a message on whatsapp or telegram the numbers plus plus one seven four five or one triple one four nine. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world china has
