squirrel hill the area has a heavily jewish population the suspect in the shooting is in custody we have multiple casualties inside the synagogue we have three officers who have been shot at this and we have no more information because we are still clearing the building and trying to figure out. if the situation is safe if there are any more threats inside the building. john hendren joins us live from washington d.c. so just from hearing that clip there it appears to be an ongoing situation what more you hearing about what's happening there john. mary we are told that shots began ringing out at about ten am as worshippers were gathering for shabat saturday services there were perhaps sixty to one hundred people in there all of this is preliminary information and police have reported that twelve people were shot eight of them according to preliminary information fatally shot three
people who were shot were police officers and the suspect armed with an a r fifteen assault rifle and several handguns was apprehended at the scene so that situation seems to have at least settled down assuming that there was only one shooter and that's one of the first things that police try to to ascertain in situations like this the last that we had heard from police they were still locking down that building ensuring that that was the case but if there was only one gunman that gunman is apprehended at this time with eight deaths that would go down as one of the deadliest shootings in american history unfortunately here there is heavy competition for that title by my preliminary count that would be among the thirty deadliest shootings in the united states since about one thousand nine hundred nine when people started keeping records for this sort of thing and it has been a deadly years so far in two thousand and eighteen two hundred and forty five i'm
sorry forty five people in total have been dead but the number has grown of course in recent years the deadliest shooting that we have had recently was that las vegas shooting at the casino or at the concert where fifty eight people were killed nevertheless this one happening inside of a synagogue suggests that perhaps there was targeting going on here we don't know anything right now at this stage about the shooter or his motives but of course that was a synagogue in an area of pittsburgh that was largely jewish so we're still waiting for. more information on that miriam all right fernand thank you very much john henry with all the latest on developments there in pittsburgh where several people have been killed in a shooting inside a synagogue of obviously we'll keep an eye on what's happening there all this happening just a day off to a man was arrested in charged of a fourteen explosive devices sent to a high profile critics of the u.s. president trump has accused the media of using the bomb attends to score political

everyone will benefit if we can in the politics of personal destruction. but then he returned to criticizing the media the media is constant unfair coverage the possibility. and negative attacks you know that only serves to drive people apart and to undermine healthy debate. some has been crisscrossing the country to support republican candidates ahead of the midterm elections in two weeks americans will decide which party controls congress. with that at stake former u.s. president barack obama also held a rally friday to campaign for wisconsin democrats whatever your political background i'm hoping you think it's wrong to hear people spend years months vilifying people questioning their patriotism calling them enemies of
the people and then suddenly you're concerned about civility. obama was another intended recipient of the pipe bombs he made no mention of it in his remarks but terrence romney a wisconsin voter who waited in line to see the former president says trump is partly to blame for the violence that they claim that this whole thing up with this but his crazy talk is it enabled to get crazy people is to do things as the dueling rallies from presidents present and past unfolded friday both men sharply diverged on immigration taxes and health care they laid out competing visions of america but agreed on one thing this election both claimed will be the most important one in a lifetime heidi joe castro al-jazeera milwaukee wisconsin without is there

now in both gaza and southern israel but it was certainly a very tense night probably the most dense we have seen in recent weeks now islamic jihad did claim responsibility for the rockets launched at southern israel in its statement it said it was in retaliation of the palestinian blood that was said earlier in the day now as you know every friday thousands of palestinian head to that border fence between gaza and israel demanding the. blockade and their right to return home inside israel now. burn tires and throw stones some of them also to throw some fire bombs but israel has responded with live ammunition killing four palestinians now israel also targeted. gaza throughout the night he more dead ninety targets mostly stargaze and people might wonder why since islamic jihad that actually carry out
rocket attacks well simply because israel holds the must responsible for everything that happens inside gaza simply because it is the governing body there now in its statement israeli army said that it was it was also holding iran and the coots forces of the revolutionary guard responsibility said that they that islamic jihad were following orders coming from there. to brazil now where two presidential candidates have wrapped up campaigning ahead of sunday's runoff vote polls suggest far right candidate is still in the lead although his leftist rival fernando had died could be gaining in support live now to who joins us from rio de janeiro also mary still appears to have the upper hand but to tell us about the mood there ahead of this runoff vote on sunday. well there's not one
diety here and. brazil there's excitement among those polled voting for the extreme right candidate will turn out about there's also lots of fear among those who are voting against him those who are voting for. the workers' party it's been a very long campaign with filled with misinformation with violence and many brazilians are looking forward to when even though they don't know what's going to happen after sunday's vote the army has been deployed to twelve states around the country for three years of some type of violence from happening here most of the metro material has been distributed for sunday's elections on both candidates are in their home bases. even though they've got so probably don't i'm jaded one so not only here in the other generator you have to ask you supporters to remain calm prior to sunday's election and something that came of the surprises that will come out of the campaign manager filed a complaint at the electrodes court saying about. unfit to run that he should be
disqualified because of a concert by musician roger waters here in brazil where he called the both are not off fascist both amount of campaign managers are saying that roger waters is taking fights because he also tried to visit former president. in prison so it's been a very long campaign as i said there's a twelve point difference between both candidates and what many here are wondering is whether for a memoir that we'll be able to turn things around in the few hours there are left before sunday's vote thank you very much trays of rio de janeiro. sri lanka is grappling with a political prices after the president suspended parliament and sacked the prime minister a new prime minister had to rajapaksa took the oath on friday but his predecessor insists he is still in power nelson and as has more from columbus. the negotiations continue following the shock appointment of the former president mahinda rajapaksa sri lanka's new prime minister now obviously. the former prime minister says the
job is still his he says and has called for an emergency session of parliament when he says he can sure his parliament majority and the support he enjoys but of course work of business and matter of business continues behind me the presidential secretariat in colombo the scene of a meeting between the new prime minister and president might recall a citizen of this in mind the rajapaksa is bringing along all his parliamentarians that have pledged their support for him many in the joint opposition as well as some who are crossing over from the government to throw their hat in with the rajapaksa the giant opposition that addressed the media today he said this had been sort of the legitimate course of action restoring my in the rajapaksa to the helm of this country because he had done so much and he knows what's best for the people also saying that this is very much a transitional government and hinting that the new government in mind rajapaksa
would be looking to elections in the near future so that something should lankans are waiting to see why the parliament remained suspended essentially for at least another two weeks before we see any movement there russia is your main supply of gas and recent tensions have the continent's leaders worried about energy security but a new pipeline that runs through northern greece could change the project will transport natural gas from the caspian sea to western europe spots of an e.u. policy to move away from dependence on russia reports. on a remote mountainside in northern greece the final pieces of the trans adriatic pipeline of tap are put in place this five billion dollar project is part of a three and a half thousand kilometer long pipeline that will bring natural gas from the caspian sea to europe it's the so-called southern corridor or do you just start
flowing in just over a year and it turns greece into an energy transit country for the first time what's grace in. of europe and the south is you know it connects the southeast european like it with a main you know pan might get through it and it is important that the it diversified then to mix both in southeast europe but also in in the european like atlanta and the us europe produces only a third of the gas it consumes and buys another third from russia its own reserves a dwindling and it is trying to reduce dependence on russia this pipeline is the european union's first major attempt to diversify its supply away from russian gas it acquired urgency after two thousand and nine when the russian state gas company gazprom stopped supplies to europe through ukraine for two weeks the shortages caused factory shutdowns and severe hardship in southeast europe. new gas
discoveries in the eastern mediterranean could make greece the transit country for another major pipeline that's under consideration east med would satisfy another three percent of european consumption by bringing israeli and cypriot gas under the sea to greece and italy the wider your gas supplier network obviously you have better chances of securing more competitive gas prices so in that sense getting one more supply of gas definitely increases competition and also improves your security of supply greece is also building a pipeline little connect its gas grid to both gary is so gas from the caspian will flow into southeast europe where russia is often the sole major supplier that'll be good news for consumers who cannot currently afford to connect to the gast grid by lowering energy costs the new pipeline can make clear come to be more competitive for years to come jumps or opel us out jazeera.

the number one reason for the syrian conflict to become a global crisis. was the failure of the international community to take responsible steps in the early days. in the early days the syrian civilians and the neighboring countries had to shoulder. all the weight and others were only able to understand the scale of the problem when the problem reached their borders this needs to be stopped it is important to take. initiative on all levels including political and humanitarian. levels that those are the main reasons why we gathered here in istanbul today.
the results achieved at the astana meeting has set an example for the international community we believe we can take. things even further. but. the more. partners and partner countries can join in the quicker we can achieve. the desired goals i believe. it had very effective efficient and sincere discussions. today. if confirmed i believe that the dissolution cannot be achieved by military means only. and we
still stress on the fact that the solution lies with the united nations led discussions meetings. it is important that. a memorandum. for seeing the us. the escalation of conflicts in libya. has had significant. effect in the air in the region we have underlined the importance of significant then quick important steps to be taken quickly it is our wish that by the end of this year. these works this goals can be achieved by the end of the year. the
threat of terror being so all originate originating from the from syria is now the subject matter that we've discussed. we've discussed any agreed upon the importance of increasing corporation port regionally and on by literal basis. terrorist organizations. located in syria. causes a lot of harm to the international community and turkey is one receiving the worst out of that threat of terror. hundreds of. our. citizens and security personnel have died. because of these terrorist. activities we have carried out. your phrase shield and olive tree campaigns and thousands of why p.g.p.
why did terrorists. rendered. effectless incapable. brought peace to thousands of. meeting is of. area open area. or two hundred sixty thousand syrians have been able to return to the areas where we have established peace and. calm again we believe the numbers really increase in niger in turkey nor in syria terrorists groups will be allowed to plow flourish. and we will never accept any new. impositions in syria or in the region so.
we have discussed the humanitarian. dimension of the syrian. issue and we've reached that it needs to be tended to. without delay we have discussed the return of the syrian nation else to back to their country. we've discussed it on the basis of well i'm sorry return. and in a secure fashion and together with the cooperation of the united nations. this can be done and that it can be done then it should be done in that fashion on in that fashion. so. turkey obviously one of the most. significant countries comes to. assisting providing humanitarian aid to syrian nationals
turkey is the amount of money turkey spent for that purpose is it speaks for itself considering the winter conditions. approaching us. we i personally so cold call the international community to provide. humanitarian aid without delay. the experiences so civilians and children in syria. every single one of them is a tragedy. in our summit today. we. believe we've been able to give important messages to our. partners and to the international community fourteen elation to the political and the end in the nation to the situation in the. in syria the situation needs to
be improved. as turkey we will continue our struggle towards finding a solution. you know hold as we in the way that we have done in astana platform and in a summit like this and in on other platforms as well our determination as turkey as member of the platform. we've. we are determined to continue with that and this also. interests iran which is a member of their star platform as well of course we will inform iran and we will work towards the continuation of this process in a more secure and effective way. we owe this to our syrian brothers and sisters i would like to end my words. here and before i do so like to

integrity of this country. the syrians themselves should determine themselves the future of their country and this can text we discuss the prospects of the unification of efforts within their style or format have a so-called small group in our view it would contribute to this start of the real political process in syria would attract into it and big number of interested and and interested pop parties of the syrian society first of all is necessary to ensure the launching. the constitutional committee the operational text usual committee which is appeal the court to consider the main issues of the future set up of syria should be considered the decisions taken at the sochi congress of the syrian national dialogue such a committee would undoubtedly. should be recognized as legitimate by all syrian sides and should respect only in this case this structure will be effective will be
