2:02 am
ah, so 14 young children and a teacher had been killed in a school shooting the u. s. state of texas. it is the deadliest attack at an american elementary school. in almost a decade, lockdown was ordered after the lone gunman open for the rob elementary school in the town of or valley. a texas governor greg abbot named the suspect his 18 year old at salvador ramos. he was shot dead by police. nearly $600.00 children are enrolled at the institution. all the time of a body is in south west, texas is not far from the border with mexico, the same to more than 16000 people. the shooter was salvador romeus, an 18 year old male who resided in you. valley is believed that he abandoned his vehicle and entered into the rob elementary school in new valley with a hand gun. and he may have also had
2:03 am
a rifle. but that is not yet confirmed. according to my most recent report, he shot and killed horrifically in comprehensively 148 students and killed a teacher. mr. ramos, the shooter, he is a he himself, is deceased and is believed that responding officers killed him or more than the said, let's get a rob reynolds who started by for the last time with rob, yet again, a terrible shooting incident. and yet again, the death toll is substantial yes it happens. ready over and over and over again. nick, this was the 27th school shooting this year. 2022 alone, and it's about the 2 hundreds mass shooting that has been documented in this
2:04 am
country since the beginning of the year. the bare bones of the event or incident as we have been given them by officials are these this 18 year old. the alleged gunman ditched his truck near the elementary school went inside with at least one hand gun, possibly more firearms. he committed his atrocious acts and the police who were responding to the alarms at the school came in and killed him. there are other reports that he may have shot his grandmother before carrying out the shooting at the school. the senator from connecticut, the chris murphy who represents the state that saw thee catastrophic a killing of 28 school children and teachers in sandy hook elementary school. 10
2:05 am
years ago said this on the floor of the u. s. congress. these kids weren't unlucky . senator murphy said this only happens in this country and nowhere else, nowhere else do. little kids go to school thinking they might be shot that day. so we will hear from president biden a little bit later on addressing this incident. he may outline things that he might be able to do through executive order without involving congress but nick, time and time again since sandy hook and before then over and over again, attempt to restrict gun ownership or to limit the amount of bullets that are carried in magazines to limit or restrict semi automatic weapons weapons of war if you. ready will those have failed over and over and over again in the congress due to the staunch opposition of the republican
2:06 am
party. and a few democrats who favor virtually unlimited gun rights, texas. we should note is one of the states with the, the most lax gun control laws it's, it's possible to walk around on the street or in the coffee shop or the grocery store or whatever in texas with, with a pistol on your hip. it's called open. kerry and finally i'll note that this happened just a few days after 10 people were gone down by a shooter with an apparent racial hate motivation at a supermarket in a black section of buffalo, new york, new york has strict gun laws, texas doesn't, but it happens no matter what, no matter where there are more guns in this country than there are people are rob, thanks for that. reynolds reporting that let's cross to washington
2:07 am
d. c. she have returns is standing by and she have is rob says, time and time again. the attempts to restrict gun ownership have failed. we will be hearing from the president joe biden, soon, realistically, what can he do? well, even when joe biden was in buffalo just a few days ago to, to, to grieve with those bereaved thereabouts. about attack that, that, that rob just mentioned. he pretty much basically said at least on his way back to poland is flowery speech on his way back to air force. well, we heard him say basically, well, actually, i mean it's very likely he's gonna get any gun control legislation through. and he started talking perhaps about sensor and the internet or something, even though perhaps this was a, that was a law enforcement failure because there were a red flags. but yeah, there's very little haven't got you rob mentioning sandy hook is a really good bit of context there. because i think bout was the time 201220 children killed 6 teachers. and it's also bama was just going to jump in there because the is vice president tomlin harris is speaking about this incident. let's
2:08 am
listen him many levels on tonight's a rough night. we planned for a great celebration, but i'm sure most of you have heard the tragic news about what has happened in texas. so i had prepared comments about tonight which i will speak, but i just 1st want to begin by saying a few words about the tragedy that occurred today. and in you val, d, texas. as many of you know, the reports are that it was in mass shooting in an elementary school. and the preliminary reports are that 14 children have been killed and, and the details are so coming in and of course the president nire monitoring the situation closely. so while we don't know all the details yet, we do know that there are parents who have lost children and
2:09 am
families that have lost children and their loved ones, of course, and many others who may have been entered. so i would normally say in a moment like this, we would all say, naturally that our hearts break, but our hearts keep getting broken. you know, i think so many, there's so many elected leaders in this from, you know, what i'm talking about every time a prag, a tragedy like this happens, our hearts break in our broken hearts are nothing compared to the broken hearts of those families. and yet it keeps happening. so i think we all know and have said many times with each other enough is enough enough is enough. as a nation, we have to have the courage to take action and
2:10 am
understand the nexus between what makes for a reasonable and sensible public policy to insure something like this never happens again. so the president will speak more about this later. but for now, i will just say to the people of vivaldi, please know that this is a room full of leaders who grieve with you. and we are praying for you. and we stand with you. and it is difficult at a time like this to think about much else. but i do look around this room and i know who is here. and i know this is a room full of american leaders who know and have the courage to take a stand. and so let us tonight, as we do every time we all get together,
2:11 am
we commit ourselves to having the courage to take action. and so that does bring me to the leaders who are in this room and the leaders of apax. and again, i want to thank chairwoman judy chew for that kind introduction. as a former member of k pac, i had the opportunity to see her leadership 1st hand and she is truly announced. about the u. s. vice president carmen a harris cindy condolences to the people involved in. of course, the families who lost of 14 children who were killed enough is enough. she said as a nation, we have to have courage to take action. and we were talking to our correspondence. she ever tansy in washington, d. c. when a common house began, speechless, returned to him, she had no, you know, she says, we have to have courage encourages one thing, but convincing the gun lobby with quite another, isn't it? when it's all just begun lobby. but i think the point is, i think,
2:12 am
despite these statements and the actually can, you also show me your ready, there's always instantaneously you know how many times we heard speeches like this enough is enough. does that sensitive because after the 2012 massacre, sandy hook, when 20 children were killed, morocco, bob put his vice president of those days, joe biden, at this point man to secure finally gun control in the u. s. i didn't failed miserably. and then there are different recommendations that those are different sizes wide, failed off to that. what you always hear in washington, aust. or another master. good like this is when we didn't do it off the sandy hook . what. what hope is that? what hope is that doing it off to after this latest mastic on your right, the gun lobby pace plays a huge, huge part about the even just the nature of the congress were small estates. i was what power is biggest states, but it's very unlikely of anything. actually, we're expecting a supreme court ruling in the next few weeks. possibly. we can come to us further in this country within individual states. and we can go on laws or you know,
2:13 am
much of the same way as weakening abortion laws around the country. nonetheless, though, we have a very speeches like come on, ours is like this one from so from, from so to murphy, in congress just a few hours ago. but i'm here on this floor to beg, to literally get down on my hands and he's in bed. my colleagues find a path forward here work with us to find a way to pass laws that make this less likely. i understand my republican colleagues will not agree to everything that i may support, but there is a common denominator that we can find. texas is one of the most likes of gun laws, but it's not totally the case across the united states and take massachusetts for example. right. so you're, you're, how's the,
2:14 am
the more liberal states which have strict on laws. and then you have state slag, texas, or mississippi. i think that the most glaring one was missouri recently which an act to the law of a similar again to v abortion was being passed. which actually full find any $150000.00. if they dare to enforce a federal gun regulation already in effect, i mean technically, in our state con, override federal law. but if you are threatening people with fines for enforcing federal northern clue that's going to have a chilling effect. so there are all these, these loopholes around the country nichols, guns can from freely anyway, around the country. and that is why in the end, in it, whether it's a matter of banning guns or whether it's a matter of actually having a kind of buybacks scheme like that. busy australia, these are the debates that go on because no matter whether you start banning a off, if dean's now as rob rendalie said earlier on the still more guns than people in this country or she have leave it there for the moment. thanks very much. indeed. she returns reporting there from washington d. c. let's take this all. we can speak now to nickel golden. she is the executive
2:15 am
director of texas gun since a jaundiced life now from austin in texas. and nicole, a hearts keep getting broken says the vice president of the united states. what's your reaction? yeah, i feel like my heart is broken. i, i feel think i had felt this way before. and i hate that i, you know, this way again, it's happened only hours from where i am, but it's not ok anywhere any time. and i feel, i feel like we've been failed and i feel like me and screaming into the parade and it's very soft and looking in from the outside. it's hard, hard to believe in the country where the house is die by gone. does that some states like texas allow people to carry guns openly in public without the need for license or training? tell us more about the the freedom of gun usage in texas and states like it. well i, you know, i got involved nearly 10 years ago because of
2:16 am
a tragic event. very similar to this at sandy hook. and i became deeply invested in this mission. and i now lead texas dance. and that's also been around for that length of time. we have seen ongoing weakening of our already last done last year in texas during the legislative sessions that we've been a part of. we watched the passage of open carry a hand guns in 2015 along with campus kerry, which neither of which had broad public support. and, and this last legislative session, we saw lawmakers remove licensing and training requirements to carry a loaded gun in public in the state. we are joined by other states state legislatures during the same thing and the data out of the states that have passed that laws. some years back is not looking good. there's a rise of homicide. so we have reason to be concerned about in the face of
2:17 am
escalating gun violence with more than 4000 texans having died from guns in c, d, 's most recent 2020 data. and then we have this horrific incident today, which is we're adding this to the list of some of the most high profile mass shootings that have taken place here in our state has always a specific search on the scale of over americans by americans with guns is just women from believable what. what would it take? does it change or is it, is it always just going to be this way? well, i'll tell you the measures that we work on are sensible. they are common sense measures that most voters support. it's really that lawmakers are failing us or even you know, let me tell you after the 2018 massacre at santa fe high school in texas, even our governor, governor abbott,
2:18 am
spoke in favor of sensible regulations like mandatory reporting of lost and so and firearms and extreme risk protection order, which allows the reduce process law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from individuals who are a potential threat to themselves or others. and he did not enact those measures. he failed to do that. those were empty promises and we find ourselves here today with the potentially preventable and massacre that we could have avoided through through and acting those measures. years ago, we have pushed and we have pushed and our lawmakers have gone in the wrong direction. i don't know what they will do next. what i know that i have hope and faith in is the public that supports these measures and our movement which has been building and getting stronger and stronger for this past decade. and we'll keep going. the thing is that the data drumbeat of gun violence in the united states,
2:19 am
it goes beyond, must shootings like this. yes, absolutely, you know, these machines hit national headlines as they should grab our attention. but there is a day, like you said, a daily steady drumbeat of gun violence that different personally impacts communities of color. there's firearms, suicides, which account for a significant portion of daily gun deaths. all of those need our attention. we can pass laws that prevent those. we can also educate unsafe stories that can prevent those we, there's many ways that we can attack this problem and everyone needs to be on board or nicola, we do appreciate your time of the service i by mid to nicole golden from the texas . it gun sense, thanks very much. it is some shots of the flag flying half mouse over the white house a little bit later, i think within the next hour we should be hearing from the u. s. president joe
2:20 am
biden. about this incident in new val. d. i will go straight to that as just as soon as he begins to speak. now, the un security council is calling for an independent investigation into the death of al jazeera journalist green. i've worked. the body's been meeting to discuss threats to global media freedom. i were actually was shot in the head by his ready forces while on assignment. and janine earlier this month, you are in view and special reporter denounced the targeting of journalists and urged governments to do more to protect them. the security council must strengthen the fight against impunity. it must go on stage to investigate fully, promptly and independently all the catholic and journalists in 9 with international standards and reb, international criminal court is not an appropriate remedy. and yet, impunity is rampant. the u. n. must consider other measures such as established independent international investigative mechanism. enhancing the capacity of
2:21 am
existing un human rights mechanism using target sanctions and strengthening national capacity, including civil side to your conversations. the state department says it expects those responsible for the killing of sharina bartlett to be held to account the al jazeera jernace was shot in the head by his reading forces while on assignment in the occupied westbank 2 weeks army chief prosecutor and his speech on monday i noted that the decision of a pending criminal prosecution would have to wait until the initial rope is completed, that initial pro has not yet been completed. so i'm not aware that there has been any file determination about the suitability of a criminal investigation or not. regardless, or we have publicly condemned the killing of american palsied internal sharina block land to west bank. we continued to do so. not only was she a close partner of our, she was an inspiration at to millions around the world. she was a dear friend to many and the u. s. government,
2:22 am
we do expect full accountability out for those responsible for her killing. allison now from kristen to new be who has the latest from the united nations member state . speaking at this meeting, talking about the importance of protecting journal is particularly in conflict i. this is something that is required under nat, international law and the killing of a journalist in such a situation. journalist being considered civilians and a conflict could be considered a war crime. so that is something that we've heard, reaffirmed over and over again throughout this meeting. and the security council has weighed in on this, in the past resolution to, to, to makes it clear that protection of journalists in a conflict area in particular is crucial to democracy and freedom of expression. we've heard this also from many speakers of the security council needs to do more to uphold this who's saying this while the you n's own representative irene khan.
2:23 am
ah, she is an expert on freedom of expression. she call them a security council to do more to hold perpetrators of violence against journalists to account, pointing out that 9 times out of 10. no one is held accountable when someone is killed. but of course, in the case of sharina walkway, the al jazeera journalists, al jazeera, has said explicitly, and the bureau chief said, in this forum that al jazeera has evidence that it was an israeli bullet that killed her. i and that they are pursuing all avenues of accountability on there. and some people gave us just 3 days, but we endured 3 brave heroic months. that was a message from president vladimir zalinski as ukraine marked 12 weeks since russia's invasion. some areas are now returning to normal, but fighting is escalating in the east. for lensky has told the world economic form
2:24 am
devils that ukraine needs $5000000000.00 a month to rebuild. the european union has pledged more than $10000000000.00 in financial aid to keep ukraine's economy going. it is the largest package of micro financial assistance ever conceived by the european union full so to country. other countries, starting with our friends in the united states, are doing their utmost to it is an economic relief operation with no precedent in recent history, where people in ukraine's capitalist feel confident about winning the war and even reclaiming their last land. our correspondence and beds ravi found a lot of optimism in keith despite the death and destruction the war in ukraine has not gone as expected. keith was meant to fall to russian invaders in a matter of days. 3 months after missile shells and paratroopers began landing in
2:25 am
and around the capitol, ukraine is putting the spoils of war on display. morale and anger at russia are now so high. ukrainian say the only acceptable victory will be taking everything back occupied territories in the east even crimea. duck. yeah. if you do sandwich. yes, i believe the return of our territory is possible, and i think we should not top, i believe there should not be any negotiations about return into the theme borders we have before the start of this war on, you know, we should get our citizen call me back, this is our so we're in country and we should defended green, there should not be any negotiations with the enemy. these numbers i am happy with . of course i believe full stop. i hope that it will be this way. the truth is on our side, we are defending our land. we really want and hope for this to happen. yes, you probably need to weapons and then our, our army will,
2:26 am
will do everything and we will wind. i'm not to, i'm sure. we will get to victory and yes, to really and there was less optimism when all at war came to ukraine on february 24th. russian president vladimir putin so called special military operation was the biggest assault on a european state since world war 2 the, you an estimate at least 14000000 people have been displaced so far, at least 6000000 to neighboring countries. when missile ukrainian army base in yahoo, of near the border with natal member, poland, it was the furthest russian attack in the west of the country. the siege of mario pole so violent it wiped the city off the map. leaving little doubt as to how far russia was willing to go to achieve its aims. unable to penetrate ukrainian defences around the capital. russia's withdrawal from boucher revealed civilian
2:27 am
killings that ukraine described as war crimes, a dramatic victory for ukrainians. the sinking of russia's lead worship in the black sea. russia blamed him on board ammunition explosion. ukrainians claimed it was a missile strike. the invasion did change the map but not perhaps has put in that hope, finland and sweden applying to join nato stands to more than double the alliances border with russia. just weeks ago, independent square was under locked down and covered in snow. now people line up to buy stamps commemorating a moment in the early days of the war when you crane in no uncertain terms, told russia to leave its territory. i hope was that it was some weekend when in this war and we can survive. so for me, it's a sign that we have a chance for a good future, and you have
2:28 am
a message for russia and russian leaders on it. but of course, i'm sure i can say in this in things look very different in the ukranian capital today. diplomatic missions, the reopening people are returning and ukrainian seem far more optimistic. all the cautiously than they did at the beginning of this war. that the war is not over. russian forces are escalating offensive, and ukraine's east re mobilizing forces to battlefields in the south. all indications are conflict with russia is the new normal. and as long as russia controls the skies over their country, nowhere in ukraine is completely safe. there's a future that remains uncertain. then disrupting all jazeera keys. thousands of photographs to be released, reports be taken, encircled. we got re education cams in china and jang police files as a known were linked to researches with the group victims of communism. they reveal
