people we're not going to put up with what we saw that monday night we're not going to is that mean we're going to stop it all. it becomes our numbers that come to be able to stop global we're going to be a serial in helping to protect the city akiyoshi it all she county in our neighbors from around the county state and country are here to help to allow those areas john hendren is following that story from nearby chicago and joins us live now so john tell us more about this latest arrest and exactly what happened on tuesday night. on tuesday night overnight just a little before midnight protesters were out in the streets and apparently there was a clash between an armed man and there were several armed civilians in camouflage gear out there some of them were members of malaysia some of them were guarding individual bits of property we don't know much about which which group this guy
might have belonged to but his name is kyle rittenhouse he's 17 years old and he was arrested across the border in illinois not far away. what happened was. there was a conflict between some protesters and individual who was armed and there's video of this the man is down on the ground he gets up and he fires at various protesters. according to police 3 people were shot 2 of them are dead one of them he is wounded but expected to recover so this is now a homicide investigation this is really the 1st blood from the protests that have followed the the killing of mr blake jacob blake the 29 year old man whose killing at the hands of police set off all of this and so for 3 months protesters have owned much of the streets while police have really guarded the government
buildings in one central area of downtown and that is what continue to happen last night and now police are hoping that with that massive more numbers they're going to be able to recapture control of the streets we saw that in minneapolis but it happened much more quickly because they brought in more support quickly because it's a bigger city this is a small city of about $100000.00 and they simply have not been prepared for the kind of onslaught that they have seen. let's take another political reaction to this by going to an official he's live at the white house for a set i don't oversee there is concern of more unrest in connection president trumps wasted no time in saying he is going to be sending in reinforcements. well he's been talking to tony evers the governor of wisconsin for over the last couple of days he offered extra support tony evers took some extra numbers for his national guard but didn't go to the philly extend the donald trump was pushing but donald trump has in the last couple of hours sent out
a tweet saying that he's no sending federal law enforcement as well as reinforcing the national guard in a tweet he says that they will not stand for looting for violence for arson and for lawlessness on the streets of the united states we can expect that those federal law officers may well come from the department of homeland security we know that they were used in the incidents in portland where they were defending in their view the courthouse from protesters and certainly donald trump will appreciate the chance to show that he's very strong in law and order as he is in the middle of the republican national convention he says he is the law and order president he says that he stands by the police and certainly he wants to make sure here that he is doing something positive and significant to dry and bring a violence to the end what is interesting is with the tweets he has been sending out saying that he's going to push for law and order are doing the governor to take action and he hasn't said anything at all about the incident which sparked this
violence we do know that joe biden his campaign said that it was like a short through the so all of the united states and was very critical saying there had to be a fool inquiry into what had happened and also just in the last few hours he too has put out a statement saying it is no time for the violence to stop and alan of course state 3 of the republican national convention today out what can we expect in the coming hours. well we're told that there will be an appearance by donald trump but he might not speak certainly we've seen how he has used the white house as a backdrop over the last 2 nights that has drawn a lot of criticism and not just from democrats some republicans have expressed their concern that this in breach of the height check which is an 80 year old law which stops publicly funded employees taking time to promote political gain and also to use taxpayer funded buildings for the same thing though
the hatch act we're told doesn't apply to the president and the vice president but that still hasn't stopped a lot of people airing their concern about this what will we get on the 3rd night well the big speech is going to come from mike pence more about that in a 2nd but we'll also hear from big supporters of donald trump in congress the likes of dan crenshaw the congressman from texas at least definite who was on his defense team when he was impeached at the start of the year remember that such a long time ago now and also all these elden who is a congressman from new york will hear from lot of trump who watch for the campaign she's married to eric trump hugh is a pretty good speaker and she's going to have a lot of the points that will resonate with the base and will also hear from kellyanne conway the woman who ran the campaign for donald trump 4 years ago has taken up the role as a senior adviser and is leaving at the end of the month perhaps even as soon as the end of the week and then there is mike pence himself the vice president a couple of months ago people were speculating that he might not make this speech
in fact they were suggesting he might be placed on the ticket with nikki haley the former u.n. ambassador given that joe biden was committed to appointing a woman on his vice presidential ticket but mike pence will deliver his speech from a fort in maryland where francis scott key route the poor and that became the u.s. national anthem the theme for the 3rd night is a land for heroes you can understand that perhaps wisconsin might even get a mention and might paint a speech we should say an official at the white house for us thank you. now what could be the most powerful storm to hit the u.s. this year is just hours away from making landfall hurrican lore is already a category 4 storm and officials say it could be catastrophic its power grew by nearly 70 percent in just 24 hours this is what it looks like from space as it crackles with lightning and races towards texas and louisiana 2 states of course
that are also grappling with coronavirus authorities have warned the storm could churn of floodwaters as high as 6 meters making its own survivable around 620000 people have been told to leave their homes with oracle warnings issued to those living as far as 322 kilometers inland i was there as i got a cousin join us live now from miami. it does seem that this storm is strengthening all the time what is the latest forecast as a saying. a well you're hearing language coming out of the national hurricane center that i certainly haven't heard in years calling a storm unsurvivable is is pretty unprecedented and but when you look at the intensification of hurricane lower over the past 24 hours it's gone from a one to a 4 forecast and say it may even strengthen a little bit more before it makes landfall late on wood wednesday into the early hours of thursday morning now if it does impact the coasts of texas and louisiana
and the early hours of thursday morning that will coincide with high tide making a bad situation even worse they are as you say talking about storm surges of up to 6 meters going as much inland as 50 kilometers so this is an entirely serious situation for both the states in louisiana they have deployed the entire national guard they expect the rescue operation once the storm has passed to be on a very large scale so this is an extremely situation a serious situation earlier in the week we were talking about 2 storms hitting these coasts tropical storm marco simply fizzled out whereas hurricane laura just seems to get stronger and stronger and more than half a 1000000 people have already been evacuated some arriving in places like austin texas already those that remain are being told particularly by the governor of louisiana look if i haven't given us stern enough warning you need to listen to me
now get out of the storm's way and make all preparations possible this is a life threatening situation yes very alarming language that's being used what are the preparations are those 2 key states texas and louisiana making. well right now what they're looking at is the truck and all the models have it coming in around port arthur which is right on the state line between louisiana and texas they are all low lying communities lots of oil production in port arthur but up into those barrier islands in louisiana and in texas they're very very low lying indeed so as 600000 or so people have been moved out of that area you always get people that stay behind want to ride these things out but the language being used by officials and by forecasters is something i haven't heard in years this may be the most powerful storm to hit this region in more than a decade and remember what our again harvey did back in 2017 when there was severe flooding in houston and 68 people died of course in 2005 hurricane katrina killed
almost 2000 people so they are not taking any chances here at the moment but the sheer scale of this storm it is mind blowing to see you're talking about winds of at least 175 kilometers an hour that all an ever present danger of storm surges this is been taken extremely seriously even by residents who wanted normal circumstances might just decide to ride the storm out. in miami thank you iran has agreed to give the un's nuclear watchdog access to to the site it's thought were use for prohibited nuclear activities the decision ends a month long standoff over the inspections the international atomic energy authority 1st demanded access to the sites in january because it's thought they were being used for explosive testing in the early 2000 president has said rouhani also promised to continue cooperation even though iran has openly founded the terms
of the 2050 nuclear deal since the u.s. pulled out of the big is in terror and says iran wants the visits to end speculation. there was some tension between the i.a.e.a. and iran over these 2 sites and the head of the i.a.e.a. ruffo grossi had met with iran's head of iran's atomic agency. he met with the foreign minister divides the reef and also the president has sandro harney now wanted access to these 2 sides that they said that it was alleged that undeclared nuclear material had been stored or used now iran had blocked access to these sites in june of this year the i.a.e.a. passed a resolution that was put forward by germany france the united kingdom demanding access now over the last few days it seemed like iran was changing his position it said that they would correct access if it would end questions once and for all now this joint statement seems that these conditions all these kind of vague preconditions have been met now in the statement says that they don't have any more
questions or access regarding sites and sites tehran has already declared but even more so what they have said is that they will take iran security concerns into consideration or i still had said on the program. i'm certain they will it will be enough justice for what is. at the hands of a terrorist survivors and relatives of victims from new zealand's worst mass shooting testifying course of white supremacist responsible awaits his sentence. and our exclusive investigation into how criminals and dissidents are buying e.u. citizenship despite warnings of illegality.

a week ago there was. about $31.00 now south of that we have got the band of ready banjo which is called right on the edge of the constant is likely to be went at least 2 or 3 more days these are big thunderstorms. but the. victim. being his past as an instrument of pinochet's brutal dictatorship a father tries to forget. but his son's quest for answers reveals there are often 2 sides to even the darkest of stories witness the color of the chameleon on al-jazeera.
