have struggled in spain disagreeing factions have failed to pos national budgets the makeup of the next government is far from clear polling ahead of sunday's vote suggested forty percent of voters were struggling to make up their minds there are some people as he did in between p.p.o. serranos there are some people that if they pay in between. and then some of them between. so we can see that is not to be your pattern or for you know one particular set of electorate very highly of this whatever the result forming a coalition is likely to take time and in a reflection of what's happening across europe the only certainty is that politics in spain has become more fractured more polarized a sign of the times when increasing combative political stage. the uncertainty that has been dominating means that it's going to be really important to count all those rural votes and those in the provinces as well that are going to
12:01 am
be particularly important because every vote is going to count no one is going to be able to predict what's going to happen here but this is an election in which has signaled the end of absolute majority in spain's parliament. in madrid sunny thank you for that let's cross over now to jonah hole he's live for us in barcelona journal. is of course central to the national debate in spain so what are the hopes and fears of councillors going into this election. daryn i think among the roughly fifty percent of voters who support independents and probably more widely than that as well there's a real sense of unease here about the rise of the vox party the far right party in the way that it's pulling right wing politics and sprain more and more towards the right it's explicit policy is to revoke regional autonomy to reimpose direct rule and try to stamp out separatism the. dependant school altogether people are very
12:02 am
worried about that and turnout figures here in catalonia today have been extremely good much higher than they were in two thousand and sixteen bit of a lull at the moment but people coming in going pretty steadily doing what they can i think to try and counteract that shift to the right to try and prevent a right wing coalition government giving vox a hand in power now as to what they hope for will clearly not a right wing government but a left wing government probably led by the socialists given the voting intent possibly with the help of cattle and peas in the national parliament there is a quiet sort of recognition here that the direct unilateral action of the last eighteen months hasn't worked and that the way forward is a much calmer steady a pragmatic route via dialogue and the only government that would offer any form of dialogue if not a solution but any form of dialogue would be a government of the left no doubt thank you. for having on the news hour including

12:07 am
a north of san diego to celebrate the last day of passover in the jewish holiday a white one thousand year old male identified by police as jonathan ernest entered the synagogue and began firing a semiautomatic rifle bullets struck four people killing an elderly woman and wounding a young girl a man and the rabbi presiding over the service obviously look right now based on my last. conversation looks like a hate crime hard to believe as the gunman fled an armed off duty border patrol agent employed to provide security at the synagogue chased him shooting at his vehicle shortly afterward the gunman contacted police and was taken into custody without incident police believe his weapon jammed soon after he began shooting there was a border patrol officer off duty. at the at the center. and as the.
12:08 am
ernst was leaving the facility he obtained a weapon and engaged in gunfire and shot at ernest did not hit him but there was a piers that did make. it but some bullet holes in the car that urge was driving law enforcement officers say the alleged gunman was under investigation for attempting to set fire to a mosque in a nearby community hate crimes against jews and other minorities in the u.s. have increased in recent years the california attack happened six months to the day after eleven people were killed in a synagogue in pittsburgh one of the worst instances of anti semitic violence in modern u.s. history in the past few weeks three churches were african-americans worship were set alight in louisiana president trump has faced criticism that his rhetoric has encouraged white supremacists he denies the accusations on friday the president
12:09 am
drew criticism for once again saying there were quote fine people on mungo's taking part in the unite the right rally in charlottesville virginia in two thousand and seventeen which was billed as a racist anti-semitic gathering president trump says there were some there milledge to defend the statue of the confederate pro-slavery general i was talking about feel this way because they felt very strongly about the monument to robert e. lee a great general would like. it was one of the great the alleged gunman apparently posted a hate filled anti-semitic screed online on a website popular with the far right just a few moments before the shooting began that document will now be scrutinized by investigators who are also looking for other elements to his motive and the shooting is likely to add to a growing political debate in the weeks ahead robert oulds al-jazeera hallway
12:10 am
california christensen he joins us live now from washington d.c. chris and so what more do we know about the suspect in this attack and what's he like to be charged with. well daryn we're starting to get some terrifying firsthand accounts from people who were inside the synagogue at the time of the shooting the rabbi was giving his sermon at the time when he heard a loud noise turned around and says he confronted the gunman face to face he raised his hands as a way of protecting himself and had a finger shot off in the process another man describes running amid a hail of bullets carrying a young girl he was shot in the leg so some very terrifying stories coming out of this at this stage nineteen year old john earnest will be charged with homicide but he's also under investigation as we heard in rob's report for a possible arson related to a mosque that was set fire in california last month and the big question now is
12:11 am
whether or not he'll be charged with a hate crime we are hearing from officials from the president on down to the marrow of the city where it happened this certainly looks like a hate crime but investigators will have to do more work to get to that point at this stage however he is not linked to an official hate group but nevertheless he charges could likely fall of course knows rob was saying in his report that the time comes but he's six months off of the pittsburgh synagogue that sock in which eleven people were killed there i mean how worried up people about the rise of onto cynicism in the u.s. . well this really is a huge issue in the united states right now not just for jews but all minority groups the f.b.i. in two thousand and seventeen reported that hate crimes were up seventeen percent in new york city alone in the last year they've seen a seventy two percent increase in hate crimes two thirds of them against the jewish community and again this kind of. these hateful crimes are being condemned by
12:12 am
everyone from the president to representative phil han omar she's a muslim representative who's been very outspoken about islamophobia in the. united states and she called the synagogue shooting heartbreaking and called for all americans to stand together to confront him the rise of religious hate as she said in the that's the same message that we're getting from the jewish community as well the c.e.o. of the anti-defamation league said that all acts of violence like this against religious communities need to be confronted with a unified voice and you know he described the attack on the synagogue as an attack on the entire jewish community thank you. flooding in northern mozambique has wiped out entire villages the united nations released these images showing the port town of pemba one of the worst affected areas from kenneth hit the region on
12:13 am
thursday and there's been more heavy rain the u.n. secretary general antonio good ted has has made an appeal for the victims many of them were already displaced by. six weeks ago. these villages have been entirely wiped out they look like they've been running for viable days and the people are asking for a time then they need water purification and they need food so we are going to work closely with the government we are here in support of i n g c who are coordinating this response to mobilize the supplies needed to get these people assistance as quickly as possible the weather is still bad it is still raining but thankfully the winds have died down so we will be doing everything we can in the next twenty four hours to get people the supplies that they need and to continue to move out to assess areas and make sure that we know the full situation on the ground iraq's foreign minister is demanding a formal apology from bahrain it's over a controversial statements made about an influential iraqi shiite cleric has more from baghdad on saturday influential shia cleric kim looked all those saw who
12:14 am
controls the largest shia bloc in iraq's parliament called for a reconciliation between iran and saudi arabia and called for a change of government in bahrain syria and yemen now. it's in response to those statements that we saw the bahraini foreign minister describe the the influential shia cleric here with other assad as behaving like something that was a half man half dog as you can imagine deeply offensive here in the muslim world and as a result of that we saw protests overnight outside the bar in a consulate in najaf in the bahraini embassy here in baghdad it's very important to put this kind of diplomatic spat in some sort of geopolitical calm context here of course in recent months we've seen an increase in an effort by the u.s. to galvanize pull in its anti iran coalition
12:15 am
a coalition that is very much supported by saudi arabia and by bahrain and let's not forget that iraq is a majority shia country that neighbors iran and sees itself very much as being in the center of this wider geo political context other souther up until now has always been so far at least as being quite moderate in his language very keen to point out that iraq is a sovereign nation and that iran will not meddle in its affairs and neither will the americans and their supporters so they say it's important to put context on this diplomatic route but it highlights once again as i say these very deep seated sectarian and political problems of this region and just how tense the situation is becoming. time for a short break here and when we come back venezuelans a roach to use their lamb to farming his new sanctions but question on food supplies and the like displaced we'll have the latest in

12:26 am
meet all the requirements of a new electoral code and a new charter of political parties this electoral code and charter by the national assembly so the fact that now only two parties to the president have been able to succeed has caused an opposition outcry asking how can it be that an election can go ahead without any genuine opposition the president's position has been that he's left the decision to the national assembly the process is taking its course and this is the. non-governmental organizations all concerned about what this means for the democracy of this country because bernie has a very proud tradition of democracy since multi-party politics in one nine hundred ninety so for the country to find itself in this situation many watches many activists are saying this is a step backwards for this country when as i was just saying there many in brain are feeling disillusioned by the election she met some of them. this keep group meets

of the representations one of the representatives of the coalition said that the military wants to be the council the transitional council the council to be a military council with civilian representation while the coalition wants it to be a civilian council with military representation so these are things they still have to talk about and they have to iron out there that difference there's also the issue of how long the transitional period should be and how it should be run so these things are still to be talked talked out between the two sides they will be having more meetings today and they're hoping to have an outcome both sides said they're optimistic but at the moment they're still waiting to iron out the final details of the transitional government and he reports that the military council is trying to dissuade an islamist party from having a march tomorrow for fears of clashes what more can you tell us. well daryn the security authorities have already rejected requests from the islamist but popular congress party which brought president bashir to power more than thirty

a sea of supporters urges them to go to the ballot box the country deserves to turn the page in the last seven years and look to the future with hope and excitement which is precisely what we are offering our citizens to the young what we are asking is that you vote for your future and therefore vote for the socialist party . voters have a wide choice decades of dominance by two political parties has given way to a multi-party system the largest players are still the socialist party and the people's party but their influence is gradually ebbing away. in the socialists maybe to head in the polls in the lead up to the election but the reality is that even if either side does when the most votes he will still have to go into coalition with the far left regional parties if you fail to do that but it falls on to the people's marty and they will have to do a deal with the far right either way it is a big compromise for both parties. the main spoiler in this unpredictable

influential in this fracturing process is so new was talking about in her report this is the first general election since the events of october two thousand and seventeen when the regional government here held a unilateral referendum on independence then a declaration of independence declared illegal of course by the government in madrid sparking a constitutional crisis and in those eighteen months the independent issue hasn't gone anywhere a conservative government in madrid has been replaced by a socialist government perhaps more sympathetic to the cause that held out its hand at least towards negotiations but paid a fairly heavy price for that branded on the right as traitors and catalyzing in turn the rise of this box far right party with its promised to stamp out separatism altogether reimposing direct rule here and i think that issue is on the minds of a great deal.
