12:00 am
so it seemed as though it was just an evidence gathering exercise looking for anything that could help the investigation into the christ church attack now there isn't a lot that is known about brenton parent and his movements of the last few years. government says that he's only spent forty five days here the last three years he was most recently here for his sister's birthday about a year ago so it seems as though police are looking for any clues anything that could help them paint a more comprehensive picture of the alleged attacker. let's look at the social media side of things several new zealand companies including major banks are now pulling their advertising from facebook and google to protest how they handled the video of the attack that was uploaded on their platforms prime minister just. spoken out against social media for not doing enough to remove videos of the shooting which was live streamed by the suspect. the point that i would like to make there is you know obviously this is the new proliferation it's of it's
12:01 am
availability. one point five million times the fact that only one point two of those times is being automated tells me they're of course not powerless to take a very direct approach to instances of. speech that incites violence or that incites height and i would call on now social media platforms of all over icy to demonstrate the kind of responsibility that both lead to these have been and that includes stars who perpetuate the messages in the aftermath there's a lot of work that needs to be done in london for us now adam had these director of a project called tech against terrorism which works on behalf of the un security council counterterrorism committee supporting the tech industry to tackle terrorist exploitation it is an easy narrative isn't it adam to say that the social media
12:02 am
networks facebook in particular are doing enough can you shed some more light on what they are doing for us and maybe the narrative is a little different. sure take against terrorism we work with both the u.n. counterterrorism executive director on the big tech platforms and our job actually is to help the smaller platforms that maybe a lot of people haven't heard of deal with this in a responsible fashion that protects human rights what it should say is that maybe three four five years ago the big tech platforms really struggled in getting a grip on this problem but now they use automation very effectively and also have logs content moderation teams or could be a bigger problem actually is the smaller platforms it's very difficult to manage the content some of the smaller thought forms don't have any revenue they have very small teams and what we've seen from the way that isis and al qaeda have used the big pot forms is that they have become much more adept evading identification of content and i was actually what we've seen in this case it isn't just about
12:03 am
facebook and google they're also as many as twelve twenty thirty of the smaller part forms that have been used for example to share that manifest but in answering your question in terms of what facebook is done i think it's really commendable that they're able to stop one and a half million uploads so that's essentially saying one and a half million people potentially try to get the video and i think there is an argument here that there's only so much technology can do if so many people are trying so hard to get terrorist content back onto the internet but is it is it a take issue or a or a people issue with regards to what the companies are doing i read a comment in the aftermath of the attacks was someone said if they put half as much effort into stopping this sort of stuff happening as they do into telling us what sort of things we should buy off amazon then maybe this problem could actually be solved i could put a dent in it is the technology there. well i think it's worth stepping back a bit and saying asking ourselves what the terrorists want out of what they want is
12:04 am
published a t and of course the end result is that they want political change and they will exploit any part form that will give them the opportunity to influence society it's not just online it's also mainstream media in many examples of newspapers here in here in london here in the united kingdom hosting that video was criticized in the tech sector so it's kind of pretty complicated one but i think the important thing to stress is terrorism and violence extreme extremism is happening for some time the internet kaley plays a part in both publicizing ideology and also potentially helping to mobilize people towards radicalization but it's not the cause so what we do attack against terrorism is trying to focus a bit more on the detail here because that's really important if we are to find a way of dealing with this problem in a way that respects freedom of expression and human rights i think the social media issue is becoming i won't say as much of a problem as the guns themselves i just think after every gun attack we always talk about a tightening of gun laws that might actually happen this time in new zealand but
12:05 am
now we also start talking about a tightening of social media and the question becomes well who should do that who becomes responsible for that. i think the question rather than who should be half of it we heard before reference to inciting violence and that's something we believe is very important and has to be connected to some representation or incitement to violence but it's important then to to have a lot of thinking about how we define content what's commendable about how facebook approached this was they they hash that video so they created a fingerprint to that video itself so that so that one point three million of those uploads were found automatically in the first twenty four hours that's really smart isis propaganda is relatively easy to detect for example because a lot of it is branded and uses whereas a lot of propaganda relating to foreign violence extremists is much harder to detect scale and when we talking about this video. you know
12:06 am
in terms of that incident at least to begin with a lot of it was not necessarily violent it only became violent part way through the video so we have to be very careful about defining the terms because there's a lot at stake in terms of protecting political expression and let's not forget a lot of the far right are not violent necessarily they might have some some views that the rest of society don't agree with but it's important to ensure that by developing policy we don't further feed into the narrative of persecution and victimization can often drive radicalization in those communities at hadley from tech against terrorism thank you so much for your time. so what's driving the hatred and prejudice against muslims is that linked to as we say white extremism after all in the christchurch government's manifesto he described the likes of donald trump as a symbol of renewed white identity while the inside story team discussed this in detail on sunday's edition you can visit on to zero dot com here to the show's
12:07 am
section to find that one. here's what's coming out for you on this news are just a months ago before elections in israel and the leader of the far right jewish power party is banned from taking part. in generally there were fifty cases per week now we have an average of twenty five cases per week so there is a decline in huge progress in fighting the d.l.c. ebola crisis the one major obstacle that was a string of violent attacks on treatment facilities and abroad james in the los angeles like has hit a new low bar i will be here with that story a little. activist in london are bringing a replica jets to the houses of parliament to protest against the u.k.'s continuing arms sales to saudi arabia a model plane is a copy of the u.k.
12:08 am
made euro fighter typhoon a warplane saudi arabia has used in the yemen conflict against the rebels a demonstration comes a week before the fourth anniversary of the war which has left thousands of civilians dead lawrence lee reporting now from london. lama's international trying to keep the pressure on the british government over its enormously lucrative arms sales to saudi arabia worth hundreds of millions of dollars every year fifty thousand names headed into the trade departments here trying to urge the government to stop its allan's from the state. despite all their efforts. fifty thousand names on a petition you know politicians talk about moving the dial is going to make a difference just think well we've been campaigning now for four years and it's four years that the coalition has been bombing. any man and that this country has been selling arms to saudi arabia we will keep that pressure up we won't stop and
12:09 am
that's. because there are now so over six thousand eight hundred civilians who have lost their lives due to that bombing and it is outrageous that the british government continues to maintain the british royal blood on their hands i do there and that the british government is ignoring the international arms trade treaty a treaty that it was a champion of not so long ago in a drive to continue selling these arms five billion pounds worth of arms since the onset of the conflict that is seven times as much is being spent on aid in the man and the people of the men the civilians of you men are suffering we know the hunger is rife we know that those bombs have been dropped all on the families on civilian areas mosques factories weddings a bus with forty children slaughtered last august so these this is why we continue to campaign this this this plainly in locked up here is called
12:10 am
a typhoon in this country but a year of fight or elsewhere that the danes of. germans but obviously the british and the french occurring all and crucially so of all the americans and i mean by me whatever happens here it isn't going to stop as long as donald trump says well we're going to continue on the saudis because if we don't the russians or the chinese will you know the real tragedy of all of this is that is the international arms trade treaty which this government signed up to is a level playing field you know none of us will sell the arms if human rights are being abused and human rights of will be used by the coalition in the american people like trump are just unmovable to this argument of the not chump baby unmovable. you have said germany and denmark i would add the netherlands switzerland and austria we will continue this battle because we owe that to the people of the man and we owe it to them chai to stop the u.k.
12:11 am
government and get greater pressure internationally to. a second israeli has died as a result of the shooting that happened on sunday in the occupied west bank israeli media has identified the attacker as a palestinian man suspected of killing an israeli soldier and a rabbi and a manhunt is underway in a number of arrests have been made in the village where the suspect lives maybe abraham has more details now from ramallah. there's really army is still looking for a nineteen year old palestinian whom they believe has committed the attack yesterday they have raided the village of as we in the north of the west bank and they have interrogated several members in the family including the father who was detained and released later on their fifteen year old brother is still in israeli detention and according to an israeli army statement the army is looking at demolishing the house of the suspect now the army has also verges need to buy
12:12 am
confiscated security cameras over there and palestinians across the west bank fear such retaliation you mother israel supreme court has banned the leader of a far right party from running in next month's election it says michael ben-ari of the jewish power party incited racism against palestinians the decision overturns a ruling by israel's election committee the court also reinstated israeli palestinian parties which had been disqualified more on that one with hard force in west jerusalem. michael ben-ari is the leader of the us me a hoodie to a jewish power party which is the descendant of the harnessed party of the one nine hundred eighty s. led by the rabbi meir kahane of a party which itself was banned in one thousand nine hundred eight for its racist stance that is what has happened this time around the high court rather than banning the party vote is targeting michael been ari himself as an individual in accordance with the opinion of israel's attorney general of the judgment being
12:13 am
eight to one ruling that he had indeed incited racism or taken concrete steps towards supporting anti arab anti palestinian racism his party though is still eligible to stand so his party colleague it and i've been banned via will still be able to stand for the knesset and the root of the reason that this is of such significance at this time is because the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu himself engineer the new lines between this party and other right wing parties to try to shore up the right wing vote make sure it was translated into seats in the israeli parliament the knesset on the april ninth elections to ensure he could get a coalition and maintain his right wing coalition after that election it's a step which is seen criticized by moderates here in israel especially by jewish organizations in the united states for dealing in racism there has been some blowback towards this from the right of israeli politics this court decision
12:14 am
criticism that the court has been intervening in politics or the justice minister saying that it has crossed a red line and that she would take steps after the election to try to reign in the court at the same time it has reversed the early decision of the election commission to ban a joint list arab party run by a large and also a far left jewish candidate those decisions have been reversed they are eligible to stand michael ben-ari is not. the international red cross says ninety percent of mozambique's port city of has been destroyed. give me psycho need a tore into it on thursday bringing flash floods and ferocious winds washing away roads and houses then battered neighboring zimbabwe the eastern district of the money has been cut off for the rest of the country at least one hundred thirty eight people have died in the two countries and hundreds of others are still missing. malcolm webb is in the era for us and spoke to some of the families who've
12:15 am
lost their homes. to the grooves of people's houses in many cases blew the walls down as well nothing was happening to the people here who are now sheltering in this school this is been their home for the last few nights been so much rain they have been able to go back to their village to check the damage officials don't even know how many people have been affected yet because the communications are down as well they're starting to piece the picture now but in this district alone the administrator said this least five hundred homes have been destroyed we. think you can see. we need. to come. to grips we. really can't. get into the. schools.
12:16 am
into. even this. being damaged some of the. roof. and this is what's left of. them and it's. going to be quite some time classes because even here this whole town she'll be caught off so you know by road one of the original good was being she washed away the swollen rivers submerged the road is going to be quite some time people here and he says. in his her reporting from the town of chipping in southeastern some bar-b. close to that border with mozambique. a big problem is that a lot of the bridges and roads in the area have been cut off or destroyed by the flood waters a lot of people are stuck in the car move so this is an alternative and people in the local community are coming together using big rocks to try and create different
12:17 am
growth so people can pasternack says areas we people have been stuck some of them for days the situation in some parts of the region like inches money money for example we're told that some boarding schools have been cut off stalled and they are stranded the army is trying to reach them but of course that depends on how good the weather is with the helicopter fly and reads the children who've been stranded there also hundreds of people stuck at a hotel who were able to walk the when the floods came and they sought shelter there but they need things like food blankets and clothes and they say time is running out the problem for aid workers the military anyone trying to reach people who need help is that the roads are just not possible at the moment so the community are trying as much as they can to take it upon themselves to make sure that people who need to cross over and help people who are starved are able to do
12:18 am
that of course it's going to be a long process it's all manual as you can see to no machines here so who knows how long it will take these people to get the work done meanwhile people are lined up across the road near crowley because they can pass hoping and praying that this process the slow painful review process. you grab a break on the news hour when we come back valises like is contagious disease you know saying it. is watching us you know saying do the same thing every interesting former gang members take a new approach to ending gun violence in the united states a trip back in time will show even in an artist's hit that promises a glimpse of life in the middle east thousands of years ago. and in sport the long wait for a title is over for this former world number one for as he looked at the rest of the sport about tempting.

12:23 am
here in the windy city five hundred thirty people were murdered fewer than the previous two years or so to see them. a group called cure violence is using a novel approach to reduce the killings treating violence like an epidemic and sending health workers mostly former gangsters into dangerous neighborhoods to stop the contagion a lot of people. like is contagious disease. this is the approach started in two thousand after spending fifteen years with the world health organization battling tuberculosis cholera and aids in africa dr gary slotkin returned to chicago to find an astonishing parallel it looked to me just like these other problems like the diseases to say the maps showed clustering
12:24 am
cholera and a. contagious disease. in west chicago in the most dangerous police district in the country shootings and killings fell sixty seven percent in the first year since then the program has expanded to several of chicago's worst neighborhoods and to twenty five other cities in more than fourteen countries we joined the group in two thousand and thirteen when a rival gang shot up the van of a man called grandad in a case of mistaken identity as the gang prepares to retaliate granddad calls cure violence then known as ceasefire after the violence interrupters broker a tense negotiation the government offer three hundred dollars for repairs the price of a life here. the violence like. the cold months because it's. happened so a little interaction now a more peaceful summer studies show neighborhood violence interrupters can reduce

killings by fifty to seventy percent new york and los angeles each spend about twenty five million dollars a year on the program from a gun carrying. they want you know but funding for chicago where it all began is just five to six million dollars a year and each year the city sees more murders than the two larger cities combined but even five million has made a difference john hendren al-jazeera chicago. can i take you back to another story now the flooding in southern africa and we've got a live link with pharma to miller now who is in the ira in mozambique take us through what you've been seeing there looks extraordinary destruction behind you. and this is the way of much of that destruction has taken place with the the eye of the storm felt towards the end of last week and now people here are trying to pick

12:52 am
sense always been safer and there isn't much fun fighting here that's why people are shocked really this is unprecedented really. ok thank you for that and that update we'll talk to you again later. we've had a major development in break that news in the past twenty minutes or so speaker of the house john bercow has announced to the house of commons which is still in debate at the moment there is john bercow he has said he will not allow another vote on teresa mayes bragg's that deal unless there is a substantial change to the one which has already been rejected twice now jonah how following events in london for us this seems to come kind of out of the blue china . yeah yes i think that's probably true i don't think the government would have had for warning of this john bercow the speak for announcing in advance of what
12:53 am
he and many expected to be a government notice that they planned to bring their meaningful vote on the brakes a deal for a third round of voting to the house on tuesday or wednesday of this week so he retroactively if you like preemptively rather ruling on whether that would be permissible and the question has been raised by m.p.'s in the house in the preceding days and john bercow dropping what i think must be a fairly seismic bomb on number ten downing street by trawling through the parliamentary precedent the sort of rule book of parliamentary procedure erskin make going back hundreds of years to be very looking at president noting twelve times when this sort of question has been raised the question of course specifically are you bringing the same or substantially the same question back to the house within the same session of parliament as one that has already been
12:54 am
decided within that session of parliament and john bercow saying you can't and he's saying that based as i say on precedent based as well on the context of the chronology of the government's deal which is he went through it was signed published rather in the middle of november indorsed by the european union the end of november brought for its first vote in december and then pulled by the government voted on eventually in january suffered a historic defeat it was supposed to be voted on in february pulled again voted on last week suffering another near historic defeat at at that time the second time he noted they were these legally binding changes agreed with the e.u. that he said was ok but don't bring it back without substantial or substantial changes of the. the sense of what he's doing to the government here he is well torpedoing their plan their very very carefully structured and choreographed
12:55 am
plan to try and get to reason may's deal back through the houses of parliament at the third time of asking there's a big e.u. summit at the end of this week of course she had planned to have a vote this week if not get it through then go to the european union and ask for a long extension and that particular issue was does decided at a vote last week it's all convoluted and complex bear with me there are three possible scenarios here just to wrap up as we try to decipher what on earth this might mean the first is that she will have to go to the european union now and try to figure out some sort of way of presenting a substantially changed deal to parliament perhaps next week whether they agree on some sort of letter dating the legal advice or clarifying further the situation much as they did last time the e.u. of course said there are no changes available the second possibility is the government may try to claim that the vote last week on thursday setting up an
12:56 am
extension or asking the e.u. for an extension is now somehow invalid because it depended on a vote on her deal which she's now being denied that's the second point she may then be able to claim that a no deal scenario is still somehow in play and hand that as a threat over the speaker's head the third and final possibility here if indeed she's not allowed to have a third vote on her deal at all and if therefore she is to go to the european union and get an extension if she's mandated to do by that vote in parliament well then the third possibility is that breaks it may be delayed for a long time a year possibly even more britain may be forced to take part in european parliamentary elections in may fielding candidates and having british army peas sitting in that parliament for the next session of the european partners. it may indeed mean that breaks it itself is not just delayed but canceled in the period of time that it takes for this country to recalibrate its position possibly have
12:57 am
a general election possibly even another referendum it could be that breaks it that all bets on breaks it all off well nother fascinating development in the break that story there jonah thank you for bringing us up to date with that next to say ten days after the attacks is the deadline that new zealand's prime minister has given to announce tight new gun laws just as cabinet has made an imprint simple decision to clamp down on gun ownership after friday's mosque mass shootings in christchurch which killed fifteen muslims. in christchurch on friday was the worst act of terrorism on our shores it was in fact one of the worst globally in recent times it has this exposed a range of weaknesses in new zealand gun laws quickly have leeson from history around the world is it to make our community safer the time to act is now what experience brendan terence is charged with murder in new zealand police say yes he
12:58 am
acted alone but he may have had support terence lawyer has told the media that he is lucid and understands what he was facing investigational so why did australia terence birthplace police there have searched two homes in new south wales believed to be those of his mother and sister they say to help the new zealand counterparts reporting from christchurch new zealand his went. as the new working and school week began students in christchurch were united in spirit and voice. together they came to the police cordon near the el nor mosque where the first attack took place to show their support for the victims and there's a huge amount of people to grieving and just showing care for everyone in the city showing them do they not alone in their crushing a part of new zealand and this is the home. i thank god the sense of shock and grief goes on for the people of the city but inevitably the national debate is
12:59 am
turning to the issue of gun. among the guns and suspect brinton the terrence position were modified to semiautomatic weapons speaking in the capital wellington the prime minister just cinder a durned said the cabinet agreed to change the law and i've already made clear that number of new zealanders question the availability of military style sunni automatic weapons in new zealand however i will be giving i'm all for some sort of days house once we've worked through the in principle decision that kevin has made today earlier on monday the manager of new zealand's largest gun retailer said his company sold four weapons to terrorists but isn't sure if any of them we used in the attack like it do you support the promise to suggestion that semiautomatic weapon should be my illegal here. i totally agree this should be a gun to bite but to die is not die please respect me on this on going to leave if these are the only questions you have the people of new zealand still have many
1:00 am
questions about what happened in christchurch and the government says it will do everything it can to find on says as well as the police investigation which the commissioner says is the largest in new zealand's history the prime minister says there will also be a national inquiry into what led to friday's attack and whether intelligence and security agencies could have done more to prevent its. some family members of victims have expressed frustration at the amount of time it's taken to return the bodies to them. but religious leaders acknowledged the tough job the police have and said the support the community has received has been overwhelming and we have also seen that to mean those are warning of long when we are all here. it is tremendous there's no you know what's the phrase the amount of support that we have because not only within new zealand but all over the war
1:01 am
people here may be struggling to comprehend why friday's attack happened but showing grief respect for the dead.
