by olivia b.'s oh she was near the scene of today's incidents in london a livia thank you for joining us that must have been of course a traumatic day there i mean what can you tell us about what happened what did you see. well i was on my way towards the bridge and i was coming out on my bike i had explosions but at the time i didn't really assume that it was gunshots but then the police came and stopped all the cars and i thought it was the construction i wasn't really thinking and then continue going straight on to the pavement and then all of a sudden floods of incredibly panic people are just hoarding towards me and literally sprinting for their lives and i was just so confused and didn't know what was happening and to start running with them and sort of asking what was going on and one of the people screaming it was gunshots it was gunshots and so that more people started running and it was just a massive turmoil sounds like
a chaotic scene there i mean we understand also that the suspect was wearing some sort of fake explosive device did you see or hear anything or lay the that as people were running away was there a bigger fear that there could be a potential explosion on the bridge i think no one really knew what was going a lot of people were just sort of saying there was an explosion there were attacks that was something and everyone was just kind of running and didn't really know what they were running from apart from that he had actually seen what happened i personally didn't see the actual attack but i just saw the people running away from him the mayor of london. he's praising the efforts of bystanders today he's calling them heroic what did you see i mean how were citizens responding to the incident obviously there was panic but there also were people actually going towards the alleged attacker. yeah well that i only really understood afterwards because i didn't know what was going on i just saw people running towards me and so i just
sort of continued going along with them and trying to figure out what was happening but obviously afterwards realizing and looking on the news and looking at twitter and seeing the people who had actually been involved in getting the knife in the magnets incredible and i think it's incredibly important to show that it's sort of makes you cry and you know that scene of extreme panic. how people reacted i do think it does show people to attack that and that some people actually went towards it to save people's lives and i think that's incredible and we've of course don't know the motive yet police saying this is being treated as a terrorist attack there was a similar attack in the same area and then 2017 as a londoner given all the political divisions in your city and in the u.k. right now how do attacks like this make you feel about your city. but i think fearful that then living in a city like london you always kind of know that there's
a risk of something happening sort of especially in today's well. but it still is incredibly scary to think that it could have been you and others are now going to literally half an hour before it happens. so incredibly afraid but then again i also think there is a sort of sense of the general election every thing that's been going on in fact in this country i feel like the country is just so divided it and so when you have something like this it is sort of a feeling afterwards of bringing everyone together in a sort of sense of. sort of solidarity amongst everyone i want to clear in their midst all the divisions that have been taking place in this kind of time. and i will thank you very much for joining us to libya because though she was near london bridge today when that incident took place thank you for taking the time to speak with us. well certainly intense scenes in the heart of london tonight w. correspondent sure is there for us no sure can you just bring us up to date i mean what more do we know as this investigation goes forward.
well it was a busy day of busy friday afternoon on the streets of london especially there on london bridge which leads into the heart of the financial center here in london and the alleged attacker that has been killed by police was wrestled to i won by by a bystander or by a heroic bystander because that alleged attacker was wearing a suicide vest and at that point the bystander did not know that that was a fake suicide vest so this suicide vest is also the reason why investigators are now treating this as an act of terror because it reminds them also of the incident 2 years ago where 3 people close to the islamic state committed and then attack there on this bridge on the london bridge also wearing fake suicide vest so the end terrorism unit is now investigating at this hour and johnson is also meeting
with the special anti-terrorism units to investigate this incident and we know of course now that 2 people have died as a result of this tag many more victims are still being treated at the hospital now in the country of course already divided over bronx into there's a general election on the way in less than 2 weeks is there a political fallout from an incident like this. well of course this comes at a very sensitive time the country as you said already divided over bricks at the can pains are at their height 2 weeks to go also 4 weeks to christmas so very emotional time here well all political leaders were quick to respond quick to express their sympathies for the family and the victims and for example the conservative tory party the party of prime minister boris johnson have already said that they will stop complaining at least tomorrow before they will continue that
contains 2 weeks to go before the election ok things on hold tonight there in london show at the port of potts reporting for us thank you very much we want to bring you some breaking news now reports of another stabbing attack are coming in this time in the netherlands police in the hague say that several people have been wounded in a stabbing incident on the city's main shopping streets emergency services are currently on the scene officials say it is unclear at this point of the attack is terrorism related we'll bring you more on that incident as soon as we have new information for you in the meantime let's get you caught up on some of the other stories making news around the world china has reacted angrily to president trump's approval of measures back in pro-democracy activists in hong kong beijing says it will take quote firm countermeasures against the u.s.

and legal crisis marked by the murder of journalist daphne. she was investigating corruption by the governments when she was killed in a car bomb attack 2 years ago. at 3 in the morning prime minister joseph gave a press conference he was upset by the investigation into death. as murder and the alleged involvement of his close colleagues for us this was not just a murder this was a major case that shook our democracy many people greatly doubt that actually did everything possible to solve the murder of journalist. she was killed by a car bomb on october 16th 2017 last week the investigation into who contracted the murder led to the maltese energy entrepreneur york unfinished allegedly he had transferred money via dubai to companies in panama these companies apparently belong to most cuts tourism minister conrad miti and his chief of staff keith embry
both resigned earlier this week. carr want to go ahead researched suspected corruption at the highest government level this week many demanded most concert resignation they say he has blood on his hands because he trying to protect officials stay through it all for us but one sentence we investigate. found no evidence and released him and they want us to believe that according to maltese media most cut intends to announce his resignation soon. well joining me now from malta is d.w. correspondent barbara vessel now barbara maltese media reports that from minister joseph most plans to quote resign imminently i mean but imminently maybe is a relative term i mean i was hours ago do we know what's going on behind closed doors there. it seems still imminent because everybody here is still waiting for it has been like that since the afternoon televised address. for. 7
30 in the evening but it didn't happen so far and we don't quite know what the joseph musket is now sort of waiting to be pushed or whether he can't find the day the way to the door of his presidential palace here in the background there has been massive problems and infighting and distrust and fury and they cabinet meeting last night many ministers sort of stood up against him and said we can't carry on like this you just have to step down and we've lost all credibility and so he really is being forced out and it seems he's just sort of dragging his feet and trying to find some sort of dignified looking way to to leave office but in the end it seems totally. he goes no way around he just has to do it because his own people seem to have turned against him now on the one hand we have the political turmoil bear on malta but what would his resignation mean for this murder
investigation mean with this help to bring any justice for what was essentially the murder of an investigative journalist. it seems rather. clear that the murder investigation once must go to step down and once this whole web of conspiracy and of sort of one hand washing the other and everybody is being protected by those honey up an office here once this web a story that things will really be blown up into the open we saw earlier this afternoon new york in fenech the main suspect this businessman who was supposed to order the hit against. emerge from the court building here in malta and he sort of turned to journalists and said now the truth will come out and he has promised that he would tell all that he would really is sort of the point the finger at the people in government who are implied in this murder and who in the end we're the
ones to sort of send out the hit men that put the bomb into her car so it might really be the case that things come you know come tumbling down as soon as the government is gone the protection is gone and not not for nothing to do citizens here yell mafia mafia when they're sort of protesting against the government this is really what it looks like it's a mafia film in real life and barbara we're looking at pictures of protests of citizens talking about corruption in briefly if you can what is this entire scandal done for the people there in that country in malta and their belief in the rule of law and democracy. as in so many countries in the world right now if you look around the globe there is a palpable anger here in people say we want democracy restored we don't want to be a banana republic without the bananas we we really want to be
a democratic state that has some dignity that has a reputation their reputation on the world stage and they are really ready to fight for that and come out for that and protest as long as it takes to get back to get their country back in order i'm going to be correspondent barbara vai's all for us in malta thank you very much to iraq now where prime minister del monte says he will present his resignation to parliament his offer to step down comes day after 40 people were killed in the latest clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters the death toll since unrest broke out in october has now surpassed 400. a victory for protesters here celebrating in baghdad the prime minister says he'll resign amid relentless protests they've been demanding change since october in some of the country's most sustained and deadly clashes.

their share. but for the protesters it's just the beginning they do want to demonstrate that sentiment such that the resignation of prime minister maliki is not solving the entire problem the problem is about the system that brought him in they would be delusional if they think they can use him as a scapegoat and that the people who have withdrawal from the streets after his resignation they realize they're not about to violent clashes continued on friday in the holy city of new jeff just this new circulated that the prime minister was resigning the funerals continued to testament to the government's brutal response to this protest movement. that you're watching news still to come they are women in the male dominated by ending world of kung fu these himalayan buddhist nuns are using their training to send a message. to the 1st young climate activists around the world took to the

a progressive school of tibetan buddhism that encourages its followers to fight the patriarchy. the i aim is to lead by example in a region where girls are often seen as a burden. in all the religions. but i think. it's a ping in the community that have left behind for many many. of. the women say the martial art goes hand in hand with the practice of buddhism. and is in bold in them to spread their empowerment they've now given self-defense workshops to almost 400 girls across the region. and then.
