right we begin with breaking news out of the u.s. state of ohio where a shooting has taken place police say 10 people have been killed including the gunman in an area in dayton's oregon district 16 people were taken to hospital with injuries yet the eyes also on the scene and investigating so far there's no indication of a motive. well this all comes on the heels of another shooting in texas police that the rest of the 21 year old white man suspected of killing at least 20 people the gunman opened fire at a shopping mall in the city of el paso which is on the border with mexico president has called the shooting an act of cowardice police are investigating the possibility the attack was a hate crime is the worst mass shooting in the u.s. this year as rob reynolds reports. heavily armed police moved through a shopping center in el paso texas after a gunman opened fire in
12:02 pm
a crowded area. in other parts of the mall shoppers were held in place while people tried to work out what was happening. you know where you're. going to be. hard you know where we're going to come from there and then there was what has become a common scene in the united states lines of people being led from the scene of another mass shooting. on a on a day that would have been a normal day for someone to leisurely go shopping. turned into one of the most deadly days in the history of texas. lives were taken. who should still be with us today. 20 an ascent people from el paso. have lost their lives and more than 2 dozen more.
12:03 pm
are injured. we as a state unite and support. despite reports of multiple shooters police say only one man is in custody and will face charges that could if he is convicted lead to his execution but needless to say this scene is a riff it one fortunately because of the nature of the situation the scene will be in play for a long period unfortunately the c.s. will remain at the scene until the scene is process properly for. evidentiary purposes to be gathered for later prosecution the state of texas will be the lead agency or into the prosecuting this particular individual. that has a nexus s. this will point in time to a hate crime the f.b.i. will be looking into that with the other federal authorities right now we're
12:04 pm
looking at potential capital murder charges for this individual he is a 21 year old white man who allegedly posted a racist rant online on an extremist web site just an hour or so before the shooting at an emotional democratic presidential hopeful beto all roark who is from el paso announced he was canceling further campaigning and heading back to his city and so i just ask for. everyone strength for passing right now everyone's resolve to make sure that this does not continue to happen in in this country u.s. president donald trump called the shooting an act of cowardice and promised the city and state any help the federal government could extend but democratic presidential candidates including o'rourke linked trump and his rhetoric to the shooting senator bernie sanders wrote on twitter we must reject this growing
12:05 pm
culture of bigotry espoused by trump and his allies the shopping center behind me is now the focus of an intense criminal investigation and as authorities gather the physical evidence they'll also be looking at the suspects activities on line trying to trace the roots of his rage rob reynolds al jazeera el paso. now a 4th straight day of protests is underway in hong kong crowds have been marching in the outlying suburbs ahead of a much larger rally in the center of the city later on saturday police fired tear gas to clear thousands of demonstrators activists around korea over a proposed extradition law and the police response to the protests $100.00 thomas joins us live from under so another day of protests on the streets and as what's been happening today. will embrace yet more anti-government protests i'm here in the center of hong kong hong kong itself and this protest is just beginning now and we're expecting tens of thousands to gather
12:06 pm
here already though there's been another protest in another part of hong kong in the new territories in the northeast of hong kong in america and there were probably seen tens of thousands of people marching down the street so far that one's been entirely peaceful this one is just beginning but these protests now happening day off the day of the day with no real end in sight i've been reporting on them for last 3 days because michael are we more protests on monday when there's also a call for a general strike across hong kong so none of this there and shows any sign of dying down and i'm jus there were confrontations with the police last night you're in the thick of it when i spoke to you but just to remind our viewers yesterday we also saw a pro china and pro police rallies as well. we did well the events that we were talking about last night there and when there was a big crowd that started off in the sense of callin a shopping area reform called that was an authorized protest about this one is in fact but then that morphed into something altogether different and more and more
12:07 pm
people arrived again probably tens of thousands by my estimate of people dressed in camouflage they had hoods on they were carrying tear gas masks hides. helmets most of them they were expecting conversation with the place and certainly they got to ask the night wore on that they started attacking a play station in that area and the place eventually came out used to get at the crowd massively of all of them to exaggerate and it was quite localized but that does tend to be the pattern with these protests but as you say also on saturday the walls i wrote place government rally very very hard to get numbers on any of these things because everyone's estimates very very different for example the protest that i was at earlier on saturday the tasteful rally well the organizers say there were 120000 people who took part and that the police say it was 4230 fall difference in the estimates of numbers and then you look at the pro-government protest happening elsewhere in hong kong on saturday the organizers of that one say
12:08 pm
120000 people the police 40000 but it's likely that the place is even exaggerating that number because let's be honest those people coming out in support of the place i really try to get a steer on where the numbers are with these things is difficult from what i've seen here on the ground there are certainly more frequent and government protests and from what i've seen the numbers are much higher at the antigovernment protests but of course that doesn't necessarily mean that they've got the majority of hong kong on their side it may just be that they feel they have the wind in their sails and they're coming out more frequently than a silent majority are supporting the places supporting government and by extension beijing because beijing a big part in all based on their moral rumors that by using is not going to stand for this kind of crime. that much longer shinhwa the chinese news agency very close to the government in beijing put out an editorial i just read you a little bit of it it says that the central government will not sit idly by and let this situation continue so far all these protests have been handled by hong kong
12:09 pm
police and although they've used tear gas and that certainly is rubber bullets and i've certainly used facts on the hasn't been that many that haven't been that many injuries and certainly been no deaths and in a sense it's been handled relatively quietly but there are more and more rumors that the people's liberation army of china might get involved in this entire time there is a garrison of the chinese army here in hong kong the room is not all that's at the moment but chinese troops are also massing on the mainland side of the border ready to come in if necessary and the editorial like that from shinawatra suggest that that may happen at some stage i don't want to exaggerate to it may not be imminent it may not happen that so but that is certainly the sort of rumor that is flying around break me that this rally central hong kong another going on in the suburbs who knows where this one will end up the beijing. consulate not the right what's the right word the representation of beijing here in hong kong the building it's very very close to just a few 100 meters they're not authorize these people to walk to it but there are
12:10 pm
rumors that they may later on could get testy and then on monday this general strike calls for anyone who is fed up with the way the government is treating these protests and not responding to the press protesters them on at the same time 7 different anti-government protests planned for monday right across hong kong all right to enter thomas there in hong kong andrew thank you are just bringing some breaking news out of the iranian capital tehran iran's revolutionary guard say they have seized a foreign oil tanker in the gulf that they say was smuggling fuel to some arab states well for more on this let's bring in said begg from tehran i said so what more do we know at this stage about the shit that the iranians say they've taken. yes daryn this is a vessel that's accused of carrying around 700000 liters of fuel that's intended to a number of arab countries now it was seized near farci island that's between saudi
12:11 pm
arabia and iran the revolutionary guards say that they carried out this operation once they did quiet the appropriate permits from the judiciary that this happened on wednesday we know that 7 crew members have been detained all foreigners it's been taken to the southern port city of pushchair and it's significant because this is the 2nd of a similar operation that's taken place in the last month and it's the revolutionary guard in forcing law in the persian gulf and said stay with me for a 2nd because in more news out of iran the government's reveal that it turned down an offer of talks from the united states and a spokesman says that the foreign minister zarif was invited to the white house several weeks ago and that announcement comes just days after the u.s. imposed sanctions on zarif in them on the core of the u.s. action on foreign minister zarif is against all diplomatic procedures and is an unprecedented event in the history of diplomacy and that one government keep claiming to be ready for negotiations and then to put sanctions on a foreign minister of that country how well isn't it ridiculous he was invited by
12:12 pm
a senator to have a meeting at the white house then they imposed sanctions on him foreign minister zarif is responsible for foreign policy and any diplomatic path should pass through him or let's go back to i said big in tehran and i said so the iranians have been giving more details there about the diplomatic failures and the sanctions imposed on the foreign minister. well this is a confirmation we've been waiting for from a government spokesman earlier robbie this this meeting took place was sent to ron paul he was then mr zarif is then invited to the white house but what's also noteworthy is that whilst mr zarif was visiting new york the united nations there were certain restrictions placed upon him he could only visit 3 buildings now whilst this was going on he was invited to speak to donald trump u.s. president and this was turned down and that's because the iranian position is that they will not talk to the u.s. administration until the sanctions on iran are lifted those sanctions that were
12:13 pm
placed on iran after the u.s. union that truly pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal now the u.s. put sanctions on mr zarif himself on thursday they say because he is not an honest broker and he is a representative or he acts on behalf of the supreme leader here ayatollah khomeini now the spoke government spokesman also reiterated the support that mr zarif has within the country from the armed services from the revolutionary guard and the supreme leader now what this shows is that regardless of the internal political differences in iran the establishment is firmly behind mr zarif and what they're telling the united states is that they cannot sideline the country's foreign minister in any future negotiations or at a as a break there in terror as a thank you. pakistan has expressed serious concerns over india's decision to send thousands of additional troops to indian administered kashmir in this is the move is to stop attacks by fighters it believes pakistan supports new delhi has ordered hindus attending an annual pilgrimage on tourist to leave the area but pro
