8:07 pm
and to others i implore you speak the names of those who were lost rather than a name of the man who took them he may have sought not sure i see but we in new zealand will give him nothing. the el nor mosque where the first attack took place is still cordoned off a forensic examination is coming to an end and the focus is turning to cleaning before wood ship is are allowed back and there's been some frustration expressed by family members of those killed about delays and having bodies returned for burial but that process is now underway and the area behind the cordon remains a crime scene but it's believed that in the next few days both mosques will reopen that will be a difficult time for people like. who came to new zealand from south africa twelve years ago he used to pray at the el nor mosque but at the moment this is as close as he can get all of the people in the most. welcome guest to new zealand

that she can only hold a vote on her deal to leave the e.u. fundamentally different from before. brazil's president of also narrow is in the u.s. where he's meeting with president donald trump as well it's narrows first foreign trip since taking office the two leaders are expected to discuss a range of issues including the political crisis in venezuela both leaders are fierce critics of president nicolas maduro alan fischer is live at the white house for is so alan the south american trump and the man himself and finally met politic on. well the trump of the tropics as many people have called him get finally gets to meet the man he modeled a lot of his election campaign on the two of them sat in the oval office donald trump answered a few questions about his relationship with brazil but the media were more obsessed with some domestic stories that are ongoing at the moment certainly we know that the two men get on very well also not always says that he is the first pro american
8:16 pm
brazilian president in a number of years he's praised donald trump that never goes down badly or donald trump as a c. took a few pages out of the donald trump playbook for his election campaign he talks a lot on twitter he talks about complex issues but how he has simple solutions he attacks the elite he talks about how he's going to work for the common man all of these things resonate very heavily with donald trump no they're going to talk about venezuela that's obviously one of the key issues that they will be discussing we know that donald trump has again said just in the last hour all options are on the table he's been asked in the past of that includes military options he said all options are on the table therefore he would be very keen to have an ally such as brazil which is right next door to venezuela and also shares a very long border there if there was to be any possible action but the loss will
8:17 pm
be talking about economic sanctions they'll talk about trade as well brazil is likely to offer visa free travel for americans going into brazil but that won't easily be reciprocated but brazil would like to get not nato ally status now what would that mean that would mean they would get access to buying u.s. military hardware would also give them the chance to pick up some excess military hardware as well as the brazilians see this as the key point and donald trump has never been shy in trying to sell american weapons abroad so that could well be a point of agreement during these talks and a lot of people wondering what this new year on u.s. president relations could mean for other countries not just one is the way that you talked about but also china for instance when it comes to trade. exactly right we're talking about the two biggest economies in the americas donald trump is keen to get as much american business into places like brazil as possible he
8:18 pm
believes that that will help american businesses and help him deliver on those election promises the brazilians are looking for investment in their nuclear power industry one thing that the united states really wants is access to the brazilian rock which means they could fire satellites into space the brazilians have in the past been reluctant to grant not because it's giving up some sovereignty of their own soil to the united states but given that these two presidents are very much alike in with each other when it comes to very key political issues there's a possibility that the huddle could be overcome certainly we will find out a lot from both men when they hold a joint news conference in the rose garden and what is a fairly fairly chilly day here in washington in the next hour or so thank you for that alan fischer lifeforce in washington. catholic sounds president has announced

previous engagement before god the people in history to ensure the continuation of the rule of the national army as an impregnable fortress protecting our people in our nation and in any imaginable circumstance. but a large section of the political opposition says official statements fall short of the mop and thirteen independent unions have refused to back the newly appointed prime minister's efforts to form a government risking further political analyst in the weeks to come amid fog of disease. canada says it will stop the use of the boeing seven three seven max eight aircraft until july meanwhile prosecutors in the us are looking into how the model was created by america's aviation regulator as a pinafore emails and other correspondence involved in the jet's development has been issued by a federal grand jury investigators have found similarities between last week's crash in ethiopia and another in indonesia five months ago both involved seven
8:23 pm
three seven max eight planes robert wall is the senior aerospace an aviation additive for the wall street journal he says the probes into boeing could have serious ramifications for company. obviously the prosecutor the investigators keep it pretty closely really held what specifically they're looking at we can assume that they will be looking at all the documentation or as much documentation as they can get their hands on between boeing and the f.a.a. to see if everything was complied with if there were any variances maybe even any shortcuts taken so i think that is definitely going to be a key part of the probe and i think also important to realize is the u.s. congress is getting involved and is going to start up its own investigation and they can also obviously require people to come testify before before congress so this is a multifaceted. scrutiny that boeing and the seven three seven and the f.a.a. will be under in the coming weeks this is certainly a big crisis for boeing i think there's no other way to put it how
8:24 pm
how financially how big are the financial implications i mean certainly the costs of this can run high between litigation damages they may have to pay for airlines that have had to ground their planes. you know this is a costly undertaking. in all fairness you also have to realize boeing is a big company with many many businesses principally known for its commercial airplanes but it does many other things i mean this is not the kind of thing you would expect would threaten the future of the company but it is certainly in an uncomfortable position for them to be in police in the netherlands or investigating the motive of a gunman who shot three people dead on a tram men tanis is in custody after police launched a manhunt in the city of tracked authorities say the thirty seven year old man had previous run ins with law enforcement that's your thought he say they're still investigating a possible terrorism related motive but other reasons haven't been ruled out at the
8:25 pm
ash about now has more from the trapped. police are continuing to question the main suspect in connection with this shooting on the tram that happened in neutral on monday now they have named him as a thirty seven year old a man. they say that he was born in turkey but he grew up here in the netherlands in fact lived in utrecht and he was arrested about three kilometers from the scene of the shooting he was found in a building now he was known to the police they say that he has a past a criminal record past including a crime such as burglary but in terms of any motivation wolf that still remains unclear police are saying that it could be a family drama a family rao but they're also saying that terrorism could possibly be a motive now in terms of what happens to this suspect he'll be kept for forty eight hours after his arrest investigation the questioning continues and after that time
8:26 pm
the judge will decide whether or not police have the right to keep him for a further two weeks in custody now the man of utrecht has also come out he has said that the three people who were killed in that shooting two men and one woman but he's not yet released the names and that is out of respect he says for the families there's no doubt though that this city the people in the city still remain extremely shaken by those events on monday because you traped is well much like the rest of the netherlands it is not a country it's not a city where gun crime is very common. which is among a number of countries that i've seen an increase in cases of measles in the past few months the country has put in place emergency measures that keep vaccinations compulsory medics blame a growing anti-vaccination movement for the rise. has a report from rome. home schooling is sometimes a necessity for. when she was just eight months old she had to have
8:27 pm
a liver transplant one side effect was that. not get vaccines such as the one required to prevent measles leaving her vulnerable to infections she has to rely on something called herd immunity which requires ninety five percent of the population to be vaccinated to create wider protection. i can't do many of the things my friends like if i go to school and there's an outbreak of the flu i get sent home as his mother christina has campaigned for mandatory vaccines and she's furious that it is government for attempting to allow parents to self certify that children vaccinations without official checks but they didn't meet the skill why does there have to be this risk it's not a joke the problem is a basic ignorant sense of the bad. it's not a consideration for this family who didn't want to use their real names so we're calling them out and cloud they've decided to forgo the measles vaccinations for
8:28 pm
that child yet they have self certified him so he can enter the public school system their choices aren't informed by scientific fact but on debunked theories promoted by the anti vaccine movement designated by the u.s. health body to be one of this year's worst health threats. research is taken from different sources some from the internet some from friends medications are important and science is fundamental but the most important thing really is personal choice. it's really had been a leader in vaccination strategies but over the past four years there has been a ten percent decline in those rates. it's especially dangerous for children last year the country had one of the highest rates of measles outbreaks in europe this phenomenon of self determining medical practices has gone down well with those who are somewhat skeptical of the or forty such as the doctor who is devising the
8:29 pm
vaccines and the politician who is implementing them but the problem is that this populist approach to health care is having very real consequences and flies in the face of scientific evidence. both really gd my own math yourself ves the five star and the deputy prime minister say they are in favor of vaccines but they have spoken out against the current law in a radio interview last year salvini even push theories university debunked by medical professionals have been amplified by social media. you know get confused and don't know if trusting a million to or even trusting other people that may be also more famous to doctors and that's one of the problem we face now. as the cases of measles continue to rise some believe is from the populist government surprised many recently by signing a science pact in favor of vaccines but the damage from the disinflation campaigns
