brazilian prisons just 24 hours after 15 inmates were killed in a riot at a facility in the north. a top story young school children are among the victims of a mass stabbing in japan at least one child has been killed and 16 others were injured in the attack in qana saki close to tokyo the suspect is also dead when a joins us live now from wayne what else do we know. b.d.'s this attack took place at around 7 45 in the morning tuesday morning in a suburb of saki just outside the capital tokyo usually this part of the city fairly sleepy but of course at that hour of the day would have been busy in this particular area with people commuting to work going to school just. few metres down
6:02 am
the road from where we are standing is a train station would have been a busy area because of that and also a bus stop where the children were waiting to go to school and it seems that that is where most of the people were attacked most of them it seems were school children waiting to get on a bus going to a particular school in the area a private catholic school and at that time of the day we are told that the children lining up for that particular bus were for the most part grade one students so we're talking about students aged between 6 and 7 years old hospitals are saying that the people they are treating for the most part school children as well as you mentioned the attack is now confirmed dead we believe he is a man aged in his forty's or fifty's believed to be operating on his own we don't know what the motive was but i witness accounts say that he was brandishing 2
6:03 am
knives when he staged this attack just a few meters down the road behind me and it was reading wind to be a particularly quiet area it's a quiet time of day. yes i mean usually this is a fairly sleepy part of callus saki city we're certainly not in the heart of the city as i say it's just outside the capital tokyo at that hour of the day would have been slightly busier because people going to work as i say a train station down there a bus stop as well people going to school it will shop this neighborhood no doubt in fact it will shock the entire country of course this country is not immune to this type of attack happening we have seen this sort of thing happening over the years in japan but it is regarded as one of the safest countries in the world with one of the lowest murder rates there's no doubt that this attack particularly as it appears involving mainly school children will certainly hurt your hand wearing

thanks very much. the fighting has intensified around the libyan capital as those loyal to the u.n. recognize government battled with forces led by the warlord after. the government is trying to push after us forces back from the airport road south of tripoli he launched an offensive in early april to take the capital from forces loyal to the prime minister fires also raj the fighting has killed more than 500 people and forced tens of thousands from their homes. and an al jazeera investigation has tracked several military aircraft and spy planes that seem to be supporting halftones forces 2 military cargo planes appear to have switched off their tracking devices to conceal them to and from eastern libya the countries under a u.n. imposed arms embargo after the supported by saudi arabia egypt and the united arab emirates. is a senior fellow at the foreign policy institute at johns hopkins in the states he
6:05 am
told us why he believes the u.a.e. is so involved in this battle. over the last few years a lot of countries have been supplying have started without which he would not and never have been able to dominate bongos e and the eastern part of libya primarily it is the us that has been pointed out throughout the last 3 years or 40 years by the united nation and multiple reports that it is the primary sub supplier of weapons and ammunitions and so on to the half dozen side had also established an airbase in the eastern part of libya it and it is the one behind also they dipped in involvement in libya it is the sort of the the lead point in half that is. support the primary motive is that the us has a very irrational fear of what it's called that then wisdom

brotherhoods which seems to be a broad stroke that it covers everybody that doesn't agree with its policies and it believes that it is if anything happens in north africa it will cascade down and undermine its own regime that is their primary reason which is really quite irrational in many ways because if you calculate the distance between tripoli and abu dhabi it is about 4 times more than the distance between to paly and rome so it's very hard to see that anything that happens to libya can effect day us directly in any way whatsoever except their their their absolute conviction that that will inspire revolutions order revolts within the e.u. if it's of.

strengths. even if we are not a huge political force we are really able to be united in a few missions and we win because we are able to gather majorities so i think that this kind of unity will be our greatest patrimony and we're also over the next the in the negotiations which are i trust are not going to be very very easy but in which we have certain priorities that hopefully will be respected also because we are not alone in this hour the so-called green wave has been very much pushed by young people in the streets but also the vote of young people so i believe that the other parties will be contaminated by this kind of backward also because we have very little time to to reverse of the trend and be able to fight climate change we have some kind of paradox italy for example my own country and is the place where

now they have returned the compliment. you have begun to see if he made the entire freedom party responsible for the wrong actions of 2 people who took the appropriate measures as we agreed that's what he did he tried to take advantage of a difficult situation of a government partner he tried to enlarge his own power base for the social democrats it was about denouncing what they call the unconstitutionality of course his actions it is then. this is a shameless unrestrained an irresponsible power grab this is what we are witnessing but the power in our country is based on the people and not you it was a stark contrast from sunday's scene when sebastian cortes led his party to its best european election result in 20 years which makes the opposition decision to force an early election seemed electorally questionable the chamber is now empty the politicians who voted the government out of left perhaps come to think about
6:18 am
planning their election campaign the one irony of this results is that the man who's been forced from office might well soon be back on those same government benches if the opinion polls are anything to go by something mr cortes knows only too well as he told his supporters soon after losing the confidence of parliament in the hyperfocus by the me today parliament decided but at the end of the day in september and that's democracy the people will decide and i'm looking forward to that thank you for your support clearly he thinks he can ride that support back to the chancellorship dominic al-jazeera. at least 57 prisoners have died in fighting in northern brazil over the past 2 days 42 inmates were found dead in 4 different prisons in. a state just a day after 15 prisoners were killed in violence between rival gangs official say some inmates were stabbed with sharp toothbrushes whilst others were strangled. as
