3:08 pm
of a mina manifesto that was my old out nine minutes before the attack took place it did not include a location it did not include specific dates house i'm advised that within two minutes of its receipt in least my office it was conveyed directly to parliamentary security but the assurance i want to go visit had it provided details that could have been edited on immediately it would have been but the unfortunately we were not such details in their email. and the prime minister laid flowers of members of the muslim community in the capital wellington she's met with victims of what she's called terrorism the threat levels remain high tributes are being held across new zealand for the victims of the attack our correspondent added thomas from christchurch on the outskirts of christ church they are digging graves

3:12 pm
frustration really from some of the family members of the victims that this process of formally identifying those who were killed on friday going through the autopsies going through the post-mortems and the identification process and then handing the bodies back to the family members as being too slow because of course islamic tradition islamic customs dictate that the body should be buried within twenty four hours after death in this case it simply hasn't been possible because of the sheer magnitude of what took place on friday the bodies have now been removed from those two sites from the two mosques where the shooting took place and they are now inside the hospital behind me the post mortem process that i mentioned only actually began on sunday morning and that formal identification process continues and the process of handing the bodies back as i say will begin sunday night the prime minister did caution that this would be
3:13 pm
a slow process still and she hopes that it will be completed by wednesday but among those responding to some of these concerns from the family members on sunday was new zealand's deputy police commissioner many of the families. although they have not been formally are going to forgive. you for you to see. to get good deal of one's back and to follow the cultural tradition. of the loved ones and we have made promises. to carry out these cultural issues well monday will be a significant day for the people of this city who are still very much coming to terms with what unfolded on friday but it's the start of a new working week the start of the new school week and the police are saying that there will be a significant increase in security right around the city it will be very visible
3:14 pm
there are around two hundred police officers that will be on duty standing outside school standing outside places of worship the police are saying that the mosques around the city can now reopen right around the country they ordered that mosques be closed in response to what happened on friday as a precaution really in case there were further threats to those mosques but they can now reopen of course the muslim community in the city will be particularly nervous going ahead in the days and weeks ahead but they can now go to pray at those mosques from monday on words with police outside the police saying all of this increased visible security is not because there is any imminent threat that they know of it is simply because they want the city to begin to at least start getting back on its feet and they want people to feel as safe as possible when him christ church thank you well facebook's us and the twenty four hours after the
3:15 pm
attack it removed one of the half million videos globally but people are still posting and sharing the suspect shooting video social media platforms are under pressure for failing to stop it and the hate filled manifesto from going viral our technology editor explains. the attack was designed to get maximum coverage teased on twitter and h.n. broadcast live on facebook and all while referencing a popular you tube channel to grab attention and accelerate its spirit and spread it did by the time the social media companies stopped its broadcast it had been shared repeatedly and migrated to listen on sites so why was it so difficult for big to companies with all their resources and latest technology to contain the damage well it turns out it's not as easy as it seems. facebook google
3:16 pm
twitter and you tube use automated moderation tools to track and remove objectionable content they're part of the global internet forum to counter terrorism leading each other know about extremist material and they attach digital signatures known as hedges to stop their content being uploaded again but machines aren't enough they also have human content to moderate is tracking checking and deleting content around the clock but live content is problematic and the attack video was live for seventeen minutes long enough for it to find a home on smaller sites last down rabbit holes that the vast majority of us know nothing about one of them is the listen on mrs board ha in which he used to propagate his extremist views into a he announced his attack it's a digital haven where users can remain anonymous and there is little moderation people there have been posting and praising the gunman's actions. some commentators
3:17 pm
say there is little incentive for the big tech companies to do better it's monitoring company and given there are no fines and no penalties if they fail or they're now just too big to police content effectively anyway blocking sites is one option but that's open to abuse by those who support censorship potentially taking away more than a protects open unfettered access to an n.t. connected global network of information for everyone is what the web was founded on but something failed during the mood is in new zealand and no one see it sure how to fix it and whose job it should be ok moving on to some other news now the battle for the last pocket of eyes will hold territory in syria is now in its third week at its height eisel declared a caliphate over a wide expanse of land stretching across syria and iraq although abdel-hamid now joins us live from gaza against tep that's near the turkish syrian border so what
3:18 pm
more can you tell us about this last push to rid i so from burgos. well it is going on but it's also a very difficult operation simply because on the ground for example kurdish forces come on the attack and also they have to take care because the there is a lot of land mines and booby traps left behind by the fighters now they are in about a quarter of a less than a square kilometers but according to the intelligence actually do kurdish forces the as they have gotten from those who surrendered already there is estimated that there are still five thousand fighters and their families may be inside. the things that move of these people are foreign fighters including those who came
3:19 pm
across the border from iraq but this has been a pattern that has been ongoing actually ever since about who's was besieged back in january you have a push an intensification of fighting and then it stops allowing people to come out and so far more than sixty thousand have come out and out of the sixty thousand half of them are families of i still fighters and then on top of that you have another five thousand fighters who have surrendered so it's been a very difficult fight on one side and also a logistical nightmare because no one really expected that amount of people whether fighters or civilians coming out of. that that have made it on the turkish syrian border thank you. and still ahead and odds is there as cycling brings devastation to parts of southern africa with thousands of people dead or missing.

3:25 pm
a natural consequence of what it calls israeli crimes also islamic jihad in gaza has said that the perpetrators should be congratulated at the end of february we had a message from the palestinian authority senior officials saying that the risk of violence was increasing in the occupied west bank as a consequence of policies such as the israeli decision to withhold tax revenues as a way of punishing palestinians for their policy of paying sold paying prisoners and attackers who had carried out attacks on israelis currently there is a major military operation underway it's likely that further raids will result from this. the philippines as officially it was drawn from the international criminal courts it began the process to leave last year after the hague based course courts launched an initial examination and to present the bigger the terror this drug war
3:26 pm
thousands of suspected drug users and dealers have been killed since a crackdown started in two thousand and sixteen so because man is an international human rights lawyer and he says the third while find it difficult to discern tangle himself from that i.c.c. parts process one of the points of being a member of the international criminal court when when you agree to sign up. to is jurisdiction if you withdraw that that withdrawal is suspended for a period of twelve months afterwards that is in effect to prevent situations just like this where a state is accused of war crimes crimes and they withdraw to shield themselves from prosecution though the whole point is that you cannot be permitted to do that so the i.c.c. will continue and will have jurisdiction over prosecuting the president and the senior officials that they consider to be responsible clearly there are a lot within the philippines that want to ensure that the the regime is held accountable you know when one looks at the allegations that have been made and they
3:27 pm
they are stark where in terms of the number of killings the brutality of the killings and the president hasn't sought to distance himself from them quite a country is has taken full credit for it so the evidence against him is overwhelming and of course he should stand trial and this step will not change that and hopefully the supremes court will take a strong stance to uphold the rule of law and ensure that he's held accountable. flash floods have killed at least fifty nine people in the indonesian province of pop or several thousands have been forced out of their homes floodwaters have receded though leaving a trail of mud fallen trees and homes drying out. and tropical cyclone a die is causing more death and destruction in southern africa zimbabwe is the latest country to feel the storm's force at least thirty one people have been

3:30 pm
a didn't happen here it's like yeah that's it that happens with on our roads you know s.p.c.s. not just enough to cut and globally we have those records of us interacting so as a lawyer traveler and i use that if you've been in l.a. that has not affected my view or perspective. if european airlines has expanded its fleet to one hundred and eleven planes it now flies to one hundred six international and twenty three domestic distillations beyond its almost professionals the airline also owns all forty nine percent stake in malawi lines and forty five percent stake in zambia airways what ethiopian is doing is arbitrary corporate governance they're basically coming in to a failed business which is not failed because there was not demand there's demand that passengers want to fly out of these countries so you've got the demand they're willing to pay but the issue has been the mismanagement of those airlines in
