2:01 pm
a twenty year old is alleged to have stolen information about more than one thousand public figures and posted the data on the internet so was he acting alone and why did he do it also coming up mission not accomplished donald trump security advisor angers turkey by attaching conditions to any u.s. withdrawal from syria congress says he is making a serious mistake plus it's wrestling with sexism and abuse in america we report on how one high school in pittsburgh is using force to try and encourage male teenagers to change their behavior toward women and girls. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program thanks for joining us. in germany a suspect arrested for a mass data breach has confessed to the police the twenty year old male says that
2:02 pm
he committed the crime out of anger towards statements made by the politicians and public figures that he targeted the personal information of one thousand politicians was published on twitter before christmas private messages and photos were also made public authorities learned about the data theft late last week. and officials in the state of have just held a press conference let's listen in for a moment i have a woman for this suspect has confessed to the crimes he was suspected off and is assisting us in the investigation beyond his own crimes he has given us further details that will assist the investigation itself because of the circumstances there was no reason to keep him in custody and the suspect was released last night investigators have seized computers and hard drives from his apartment. let's bring in our chief political editor of the hill who has been following all these developments and if you could just begin by walking us through what is happening is
2:03 pm
it normal to release a suspect like this. it is because. there are two reasons to keep somebody in custody if there's a concern that this person will try and kind of learn the lines destroy evidence all whether that person might actually try and leave the country or at least to go underground so authorities no longer have access to him well the opposite seems to be the case here this twenty year old young man he corporative fully investigators say that he gave them information that goes beyond this case even helped to retrieve hardware that was a ready partially destroyed so they could regain access to certain data so he went above and beyond to cooperate and that might also increases the chances that he might be treated as what do you piers to be a twenty year old kid who could be tried as a juvenile which would mean a mild
2:04 pm
a sentence but we're only in the beginning here this still an investigation going on but for now we know who this hack all bit is who released this information over the past couple of weeks and one of those key points in the investigation is really what his motive might have been and just to remind our viewers the right wing a d was the only party not affected what do you think that tells us. well this in this city pointed toward see if we didn't get any information on the political acid shoes of this young man actually his identity is being protected and there are very few details given about his thinking one of the few points that we learned of course is that he was frustrated also with statements of those individual politicians so he didn't target any specific group but it appears everybody except the far right if tea party we can read a lot into that but investigators refused to go into detail what this young man
2:05 pm
actually said in more detail about his motivation except that he was simply frustrated with those particular politicians now with the latest on the story thank you. a far right german lawmaker has been seriously wounded in an attack in the north of the country frank magnet's is the leader of the anti immigration a.f.d. party in braman he said that he was assaulted by three men in the city center on monday evening the a.f.d. published this photo of him in the hospital that we'll see in just a few moments there he was beaten unconscious with a piece of wood police suspect that the attack was politically motivated voices across the political spectrum have condemned the attack. that condemnation coming in also by many of magnus's political opponents we know for example boss tweed in the following violence can never be an answer to political
2:06 pm
arguments regardless of the target or motive there is no justification for it whatsoever anyone who commits such a crime must be punished now the leader of the social democrats have this to say the a.f.p. is a political opponent of our tolerant and peaceful society but those who fight the party and their politicians with violence betray our values and jeopardize our coexistence i strongly condemn the attack on frank magnets and tempo sumir of the greens one of the a.f.d. is fiercest adversaries to it in the following i hope that the assailants are caught and prosecuted swiftly there is no justification for violence even against the a.f.d. if you fight hate with hate hate always with its let's get a quick check now some other stories making news around the world a diplomatic test is brewing after the trumpet ministration downgraded the status of brussels diplomatic mission in washington the step is being seen as a slap in the face for europe the move appears to be in line with donald trump's
2:07 pm
long running opposition to the european union and other international bodies. at least three people have been killed and more than two hundred injured in a train crash in the south african capital pretoria local media say that two commuter trains collided head on during morning rush hour there's been no official word on the cause of the crash. one person has died in an oil tanker explosion off of hong kong officials say that the vietnam registered vessel burst into flames as if prepared to refuel at an anchorage off of the island southern coast twenty one crew members were rescued from the water re others are missing. u.s. national security adviser john bolton is said to depart turkey without having met with president of type area one the two were expected to discuss the fate of the kurds allied with the united states and syria as part of wider discussions about the u.s. troop withdrawal from the country earlier bolton said that must guarantee the
2:08 pm
safety of the kurds before washington pulled out the security the turkish president slammed bolton over his comments and called them unacceptable. you know letter. regarding this matter bolton has made a serious mistake and whoever thinks like this has also made a mistake. then it is not possible for us to make compromises on this point. those who are part of the to record on syria will receive the necessary lesson there is no single difference between the peak you k y p g p y d c and desh. that during the course of the war in syria kurdish forces most importantly the y p g that we just heard anyone mention they managed to gain control over a large area bordering with turkey they have successfully fought back the so-called islamic state with support from the united states but does not accept them as
2:09 pm
representatives of the kurdish people and regards them as a terror organization because of their ties to turkey's outlawed kurdistan workers' party p k.k. . again why the story is dorian jones has the latest from istanbul so dorian how are we to interpret these statements is this a deliberate snub of a senior trump aide by the turkish president. well prisoner the ones refusal to meet with bolton he insisted was a deliberate snark he said that the bolton had met with turkey's defense minister and his spokesman and that would be entirely sufficient but given what heard one had said into his parliamentary deputies today very strong language attacking bolton everyone here sees this as a direct snub to bolton and according to turkish media reports bolton is cutting short his visit to further evidence of this is being seen as a major setback in u.s. turkish relations and president and one also apparently insisting that he actually
2:10 pm
has an agreement with president trump to take action against kurdish forces that want to listen to what he said i'm not trying to make it your reaction or ian you so much going over there was almost ready in compliance with the agreement we reached with mr president we have largely completed our preparations for a military offensive against elements of dash who are still active in syria. to same time we are determined to take steps against terrorist organizations such as p y d e n y p g along with dash. we're going to mobilize to neutralize these terrorist organizations in syria lands very soon. so some some looming statements there dorian what do you think very soon needs in this context what. well i think that's what everyone will be asking turkey is continuing to amass his forces all along the syrian border across from where the syrian kurdish militia are
2:11 pm
base and also where u.s. forces are still deployed now now it seems that the original feeling was that following the trump. commitment to immediately withdraw u.s. soldiers that had prevented an imminent operation now that withdrawal is in doubt following bolton's visit it seems certain anything is now possible although it has to be said we are getting reports within the turkish military high command there are big reservations about launching an operation in winter and that's when u.s. forces are still deployed bringing the risk of a possible clash between the two nato allies something that both sides really would be keen to avoid and that would also carry the risk of financial implications turkish lira is very vulnerable and any major rift or new crisis with the u.s. could see a major depreciation in the currency as well so these are major factors further want to weigh up in this decision to launch an imminent operation into syria and that was dorian german speaking with me earlier
2:12 pm
a new study shows that up to forty percent of women in america say that they were abused by a male while at school or college as africa reports one school and pittsburgh pennsylvania is trying to change that it's using sports to raise awareness among teenage boys and girls about sexual harassment. testosterone is in the air to resting teammates carried high school is preparing for the next competition but coach leonard arba bitch doesn't just teach sports he has another topic on his agenda respectful behavior towards women and girls after each training they gather for cool down talk today's topic the problem of blaming girls for sexual harassment how do you how do you think something like that affects the person. that got grabbed you know not only did you get assaulted not only were you disrespected but your fault. never. have depression and suicide things
2:13 pm
i do but even the smallest thing can have the biggest impact on someone's life the kind of stations they have resonate with the boy. women are looked like powerless as he said in society in me that we should all be created equal you know they should be doing the same thing but. you know it's just that it's something we need to talk about fully comprehend why it's made me look at them from a different perspective like see what they have to go through on sometimes a daily basis and it just makes me respect them more and it makes the way that treat them you know change i learn that this is a huge issue that isn't the reason we don't aren't hearing about it before because it's not being brought to light like it should be and that this program was really good to help do that. our bitch and his restaurants take part in a program called coaching boys into men it uses the trusting relationship between
2:14 pm
coaches and their team to discuss healthy relationships and violence prevention some the most rewarding stuff that that has come about with doing with their kids is here in the conversations that they have that i'm not involved with i've overheard them holding each other accountable one kid says something and then another kid finds disrespect for their icon from what i've heard them correct each other at the moment only the boys are being coached by the girls on the team think their fellow female students also have a thing or two to learn about respectful behavior it's sad how many girls like hate on each other and like they. knew you can't get a compliment from the girl when you get a compliment from the girls like she don't really mean and stuff like that so it's like we also need as well as we degrade each other of what a coach or bitch believes deceptions will benefit everyone in the long run and he's
2:15 pm
