navy helicopter others were shot from nearby the hollow of one of the attacked tank curtis and what we can see is essentially an allegedly. staff personnel. naval employees trying to remove the remainders of a mind that did not explode on one of the tankers you can also see the shape of a speedboat used typically by the arranged revolutionary guards an organization that is considered a terrorist group of the united states and these pictures and these photos published very much are similar to a video footage that the pentagon has published just last week the pentagon sees this as evidence that iran is behind these attacks some members of the international community do share this assessment there is no common standpoint on this within the european union so this continues to be
8:04 am
a very contentious issue ok for the united states it isn't of course it is now sending $1000.00 additional troops to the region what's their mission going to be. so the acting defense secretary patrick shanahan says this comes in response to a request by the central command which is in charge of all the military operations of the united states in the middle east so they're now sending 1000 troops as you mentioned reportedly the pentagon is considering sending up to 6000 troops in the future so the big question right now here will be whether moderate forces or hardliners will prevail within the u.s. government and administration shanahan has stressed that these troops are only sent to 40 fence purposes that the united states is not aiming for an armed conflict which is by the way exactly what the u.s. president has been promising over and over again he said that the united states
8:05 am
would pull out of the conflict zones of conflict regions which just come in contrast to the recent strategy on iran a strategy of maximum maximum stress and. impact on the run all of us thanks so much for that for now although sell it for us in washington well the former egyptian president mohamed morsy has been buried under heavy security after collapsing in a court room and dying there it was in cairo yesterday state t.v. said his death was due to a cardiac arrest is muslim brotherhood organization said he died because of the poor conditions in which he was incarcerated and accused the egyptian government of assassinating him we'll have more from cairo in a moment 1st we have this report. 7 years ago in 2012 mohammed morsy became egypt's 1st democratically elected president.
8:06 am
a member of the muslim brotherhood which has since been outlawed morsi won 51 percent of the vote his election followed the arab spring uprising which till the end of a 30 year rule under previous president hosni mubarak who morsi promised to head a government for all egyptians. but dissatisfaction quickly grew prompting huge protests against him but many were angry about the muslim brotherhood's influence on politics and believe most he had failed to deliver on his promises. after just one year in office morsi was ousted in a military takeover led by egypt's current president abdel fattah el-sisi. mosi was immediately arrested and remained behind bars until his death he was
8:07 am
serving a life sentence related to the killing of protesters in 2012 demonstrations and he was facing at least 6 other trials his supporters say the charges against him were politically motivated and that he was being mistreated and denied medical treatment whilst in prison the muslim brotherhood has blamed the egyptian government for his death. takesh president resurrect type ad one paid tribute to melissy while also condemning president sisi. you see because the main rest al brother morsi armadas soul and peace with. the more chrissy beautiful as you know are the tyrant sisi who took power in egypt by suppressing democracy through coup. has so far executed nearly 50 egyptians and the west has remained silent sisi. meanwhile egypt's chief prosecutor has released
8:08 am
a statement saying medical experts will determine the cause of most east death seemingly so sutton in the courtroom on monday and there was so many questions out there let's go straight to caro and journalist ruth michelson good morning or thanks for joining us amnesty international is among those calling for an investigation into morse's death what more do we know. well as you mentioned amnesty international are calling for an investigation they say that because president morsi was held to solitary confinement in almost a full 6 years that that reaches the standards of torture and international and that they say the egyptian government is required to investigate the reasons why president morsi jockey's there was also a group of british m.p.'s who formed something called the detention rebuke which investigated the conditions under which the president morsy was being kept and they
8:09 am
said that the lack of medical care in inadequate medical care he's not a disease and diabetes meant that he was a risk of credit to a death which they declared in a report last year. and so you know there are many groups that do it long term attention to the conditions under which he was being helped there is a lot of questions out there a lot of allegations what's egypt's in government saying about them and about how he died. was he mentioned egypt's public prosecutor said in a report that they would investigate they also said that should be before. 5 pm in cairo time yesterday former president morsi was dead on arrival at a hospital in cairo and that he had died after thanking our and collapsing in the courtroom and they said that they seized the cameras that were in the room and that they question those who were inside the defendant's cage with him which he hides
8:10 am
that they are. also reportedly buried him in an unknown site to the east of cairo early this morning and if it bent his grave from becoming a pilgrimage site to his supporters again now the the muslim brotherhood that morsi once led to is calling for protests what do we expect in cairo in the days ahead. well there is likely to be some outrage it is important to remember that it's not an excuse me controversial he was a symbol of democracy and freedom is sound proof that it was long underground and then came to egypt but for others he was seen as an enemy of state he was seen as this right up until the time of his death even though it's a prison and it's also important to remember the context that mass protests especially by the misson brotherhood who are considered a terrorist organization in egypt that these mass protests have been essentially band since laurent 2031 is likely to be some and.
8:11 am
it's also unlikely that we would see a mass democratic event like we saw in 20 a little 2012 ruth michaelson in cairo for us thanks very much. preview now and some of the other stories making the news this hour south america is recovering from the massive blackout which left tens of millions of people in the dark in argentina uruguay paraguay argentina's president resale machree is promising a thorough investigation into what he's called an unprecedented outage. incentives raised questions about the resilience of regional power supplies. the catholic church is considering allowing married men to become priests in the amazon region. about it in document said the move may be needed to overcome a shortage of clergy in the region the bishops for amazon are such

8:13 am
the views he expressed publicly strongly point to this motive behind 1060. some right wing extremists applauded loop his killing on social media prompting investigators to suspect that the perpetrator might come from far right circles up diffidence to get tight authorities are investigating whether the suspect is part of a terrorist group or network but i presently have no reliable indications of this and that's been the federal prosecutor's office has taken up this case because of its particular importance and that in itself shows the dimensions of the murder as a possible political assassinations. stephanie has a criminal record he was previously convicted for his involvement in an attack on a german trade union demonstration he was also linked to an attack on a refugee center in 1903 chancellor angela merkel has welcomed the federal prosecutors initiative. this up this is also if he hits right and proper that the federal prosecutor has taken over the investigation and that will open questions
8:14 am
a cleared up as quickly as possible. prosecutors did not disclose whether they had had an opportunity to question stephanie. let's get more on this now with the w.'s chief political correspondent melinda crying good morning bill and sources close to the investigation of inside it is saying the suspect had at least links to at least 2 extremist groups that's correct german media spiegel magazine reporting that those groups include combat 18 that was a group well known to authorities here in germany for almost 20 years now known for providing bomb making information known for weapons trading and that 18 minutes title that state is neo nazi code essentially 4 out of hitler's and initials another group blood and honor was one of the groups that supported the right wing and as you. know that perpetrated murders against migrants
8:15 am
over a period of a decade without being detected and he's apparently also had to contact 2 circles around the far right n.p.t. party so a lot of right wing connections ok and those links would it would indicate what we know then about the possible political motivations so far we don't have details of that from the authorities but what i can say is when the federal prosecutor takes on a case it is because it has a political background normally the federal prosecutor only takes in case of individual criminality for example when it's truly exceptional circumstances what we do know about this suspect beyond the connections to these right wing groups is that at the age of 20 he planted a pipe in front of an asylum seeker shelter which was then it did explode but apparently the residents of the shelter were able to put out the fire
8:16 am
later on he was arrested for that demonstration that we saw in the report but that early violence against migrants indicates perhaps some possible connection to. this murdered politician who as we saw in the report had called for tolerance for migrants and had also supported. policy opening the doors to migrants ok and that is just part of the response that we're seeing from politicians to this case we have already a call for a special parliamentary investigation what can we expect that's right parliamentarian saying as are many other politicians in this country we need a comprehensive investigation into this the authorities need to throw their full efforts into clearing this up the president of germany also said something similar saying we have had examples in recent german history for it adequate detection of right wing crime that of course we forget the referring again to those and this you
